Nux vomica for Constipation: Back to Articles
by Lauren Feder, M.D.

Excerpt from Natural Baby and Childcare by Lauren Feder, M.D.

Nux vomica is the best remedy for "too much"-food, birthday cake, alcohol or stimulation. But its powers extend beyond relieving indigestion after a Thanksgiving meal-it can also be used for the common cold, constipation and the kind of insomnia brought on by doing-you guessed it-too much.

Nux vomica is useful for:

Mental/Emotions
  • Hardworking personality (Type A kid)
  • Competitive in sports, high achiever in school
  • Irritability, impatience and anger
  • Easily frustrated
Body:
  • Overeating (especially spicy or rich foods)
  • Fullness, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, vomiting, bloating, gas
  • Constipation, straining with incomplete sensation\
  • Infant colic with arching of the back
  • Jet lag (with stomach upset)
  • Insomnia (from doing too much)
  • Stuffed nose with watery discharge and sneezing, plugged at night, runny during the day
  • Extremely chilly
  • Sensitive to stimuli (noise and light)
  • Difficult sleeping, waking at 3 or 4 a.m.
Symptoms feel better: rest, evening
Symptoms feel worse: cold dry weather, wind, early morning, outdoors
