Staphysagria has been used traditionally for ill effects of anger and humiliation or what I think of as “quiet indignation”. The patient is often very sensitive to harsh words and tends not to stand up for themselves, or is in a situation where they are unable to.
It is a useful remedy after emergency caesareans or other interventions where there is a feeling of having been abused or the body invaded.
Symptoms for which Staphysagria has been traditionally used include cystitis or urethritis with frequent urging for urine, often worse after sex (honeymoon cystitis), headaches from anger, grief, emotions generally, styes, abdominal colic from anger or which dates from surgery.
Generally worse after sleep, especially from a short nap.
Worse after surgery, from indignation, shame, intervention.
Always seek medical assistance in an emergency and for a fever in a child under 6 months old.
If symptoms persist see your healthcare practitioner Use only as directed Always read the label.
