Hypericum – St John’s Wort
Hypericum is known as the “Arnica of the nerves” and is an excellent remedy for all nerve injuries, but especially those of the fingers, toes and nail beds. Like Arnica, Hypericum can also be invaluable in the treatment of bad effects of shock or fright.
Think of this remedy for crushing injuries such as fingers slammed in doors or hit with hammers, or injuries from dropping heavy objects on the foot. Hypericum is also the go-to remedy for puncture or penetrating wounds (such as stepping on nails or similar sharp objects) and for relieving post-surgical pain. It is also known as a preventative for lockjaw.
With an affinity for the spinal nerves, Hypericum is excellent in cases of head or spinal injury and concussion, which may be accompanied by throbbing headaches and vertigo. It is the first remedy to consider for convulsions arising from a head injury.
The pains of Hypericum are shooting and cutting, travelling along the nerves and are sometimes accompanied by numbness.
