Ignatia was discovered by a Jesuit missionary serving in the Philippines in the late 1600’s. This homeopath calms nerves and reduces the stress which can lead to tight shoulders, a tight neck and painful tension headaches. It relieves emotional distress, allowing your muscles to relax.

The native people of the Philippines have been traditionally wearing the seeds of St. Ignatius bean in the form of amulets with a view to keep off as well as heal different types of ailments. The seeds were introduced from East Africa into Europe for the first time in the 17th century and the credit for this goes to the Spanish Jesuits. These seeds enclose a potent poison known as strychnine and when ingested it works on our nervous system. Later, the homeopathic remedy Ignatia prepared from these seeds was proved as well as published for the first time by the German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the documentation of his works Materia Medica Pura (1821-1834).

ignatiaThe homeopathic remedy Ignatia is most appropriate for people, particularly womenfolk, who are suffering from very powerful emotional problems, for instance, any severe grief following a death or a relationship gone astray. People who require this medication most are those who are often emotionally weak, touchy and artistic. They are also inclined to mood swing and suffer from self-pity. In addition, such individuals may have a somewhat delicate air, usually found laughing as well as crying simultaneously. In case they try to hold back their emotions, it may often result in hysteria. These people generally have very high expectations from people who are close to them and even when they are disheartened in love, they find it very hard to break all ties with their partner.

In general, Ignatia is an effective homeopathic remedy for incongruous physical symptoms, for instance, indigestion which is eased when one eats something, or a tender throat getting better after swallowing some solid food. Usually, the symptoms are accompanied by intense feeling of pain and having an inclination to sigh and yawn too often. People who respond to Ignatia well are those that have a loathing towards crowds, suffer from a phobia related to birds, particularly chicken. In addition, this homeopathic remedy is also employed to cure ailments that have their origin in emotional trauma. These conditions may include digestive disorders like queasiness and vomiting; headaches; tender throats; and nervous spasms and shuddering.

This homeopathic remedy works excellently for nervous disorders accompanied by symptoms like shuddering, nervous spasms or lack of sensation in the limbs and face, perhaps worsening to hysterical paralysis, seizures, or chorea (a condition wherein the patient experiences unsystematic trembling of the limbs and face). It is important to note that Ignatia is only given provided the symptoms endured by the patient are set off by grief, shock or any other powerful emotional turbulence.

In case you notice that you are constantly engrossed in thought regarding painful conditions and you also take deep sighs quite often, you will find the homeopathic remedy Ignatia very useful. Everyone who has lost a dear one or broken up in a love relationship commonly suffers from sleeplessness and nightmares and their only remedial option is Ignatia. The symptoms cured by this homeopathic remedy are inclined to be somewhat unpredictable and irregular, and they are likely to tighten as well as release frequently while the body and the mind endeavour to reinstate balance. People suffering from health conditions that are treated by Ignatia normally feel better when they eat something and when they are exposed to warmth. On the contrary, their symptoms worsen when there is any type of emotional turbulence, when they drink coffee and are exposed to cold breeze.

Irrespective of the fact that they are normal to the person or have been brought on by emotions, individuals who require the homeopathic remedy most are those who are generally very sensitive, impractical and, at times, mysterious, and their moods are likely to change very often. For instance, they may be laughing at one moment and crying in the next. In fact, such people conceal or hold back their feelings so cleverly that you can only get a hint about what are happening within them when they take deep sighs. Over a period of time, such people may possibly turn out to be extremely self-protective, distrustful, envious and also boorish. It is worth mentioning here that the line differentiating Nat. mur. and Ignatia for treating grief as well as held back emotions is very narrow. The difference may be explained by saying that as far as the responses of these two homeopathic remedies to sympathy are concerned, people belonging to the Nat. mur. type are likely to take exception to it, while those having Ignatia temperament will simply like to be left alone. Therefore, when an individual is besieged by any recent anguish, one should first consider giving Ignatia to the sufferer.

Immune System and Disorders

Your immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend against germs. It helps your body to recognize Illustration of the immune systemthese “foreign” invaders. Then its job is to keep them out, or if it can’t, to find and destroy them.

If your immune system cannot do its job, the results can be serious. Disorders of the immune system include

  • Allergy and asthma – immune responses to substances that are usually not harmful
  • Immune deficiency diseases – disorders in which the immune system is missing one or more of its parts
  • Autoimmune diseases – diseases causing your immune system to attack your own body’s cells and tissues by mistake

Infectious Arthritis

Most kinds of arthritis cause pain and swelling in your joints. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as your elbow or knee. Infectious arthritis is an infection in the joint. The infection comes from a bacterial, viral, or fungal infection that spreads from another part of the body. Symptoms of infectious arthritis include

  • Intense pain in the joint
  • Joint redness and swelling
  • Chills and fever
  • Inability to move the area with the infected joint

One type of infectious arthritis is reactive arthritis. The reaction is to an infection somewhere else in your body. The joint is usually the knee, ankle, or toe. Sometimes, reactive arthritis is set off by an infection in the bladder, or in the urethra, which carries urine out of the body. In women, an infection in the vagina can cause the reaction. For both men and women, it can start with bacteria passed on during sex. Another form of reactive arthritis starts with eating food or handling something that has bacteria on it.

To diagnose infectious arthritis, your health care provider may do tests of your blood, urine, and joint fluid. Treatment includes medicines and sometimes surgery.

Inhalation Injuries

There are a variety of substances you can inhale that can cause acute internal injuries. Particles in the air from fires and toxic fumes can damage your eyes and respiratory system. They also can make chronic heart and lung diseases worse.Illustration of the major features of the lungs, including the bronchi, the bronchioles and the alveoli

Symptoms of acute inhalation injuries may include

  • Coughing and phlegm
  • A scratchy throat
  • Irritated sinuses
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Headaches
  • Stinging eyes
  • A runny nose
  • If you already have asthma, it may get worse.

The best way to prevent inhalation injuries is to limit your exposure. If you smell or see smoke, or know that fires are nearby, you should leave the area if you are at greater risk from breathing smoke.


Iron is a mineral that our bodies need for many functions. For example, iron is part of hemoglobin, a protein which carries oxygen from our lungs throughout our bodies. It helps our muscles store and use oxygen. Iron is also part of many other proteins and enzymes.

Your body needs the right amount of iron. If you have too little iron, you may develop iron deficiencyanemia. Causes of low iron levels include blood loss, poor diet, or an inability to absorb enough iron from foods. People at higher risk of having too little iron are young children and women who are pregnant or have periods.

Too much iron can damage your body. Taking too many iron supplements can cause iron poisoning. Some people have an inherited disease called hemochromatosis. It causes too much iron to build up in the body.
