Homeopathy has small remedies that can help us to concentrate better. During examperiods, we spend a large amount of time in front of our notes.
We need a high level of concentration in order to understand, summarise concepts and memorise information. Sometimes, the time spent studying is prolonged and the student becomes physically and intellectually tired.
We also need to concentrate at work or in periods of stress.
Homeopathy can provide us with remedies that can help us to overcome overwork situations or chronic physical and intellectual fatigue.
Not only that, homeopathy also has remedies to overcome the fear and anxiety that the student feels when the time of action is approaching. Homeopathy helps us in the physical, intellectual and emotional fields.
Some homeopathic remedies that are used to increase concentration and performance and avoid nerves and anxiety are as follows:
Homeopathic medications used for intellectual overwork
Kalium phosphoricum 9C and Phosphoricum acidum 9C
Can help us through exam periods or when we have difficulties in concentrating. These two homeopathic remedies are very effective in case of intellectual overwork or chronic intellectual fatigue.
It is advisable to combine the two medications. The dosage is 5 granules of each medication twice a day for a minimum of 15 days.
Acts together with the nervous system and helps us to combat asthenia, physical and intellectual exhaustion. It helps us to improve our memory and prevent the onset of headaches caused by excessive concentration and work.
Is recommended for severe asthenia, mental exhaustion and incapacity to make an intellectual effort.
Homeopathic medications used in cases of physical fatigue
For overwork or physical fatigue, we will take Arnica 15C and China 9C, 5 granules of each remedy twice a day for a minimum of 15 days.
Homeopathic remedies to combat nerves and anxiety
In order to conquer nervousness and fear, we will take Gelsenium sempervirens 15C and Argentum nitricum 15C for a period of one month before the exam date. Both homeopathic remedies should be taken together – 5 granules of each remedy to be taken once a day should be sufficient.
Gelsenium is a homeopathic remedy that is recommended in cases of fear brought about by anticipation. They are situations that produce memory disorders, tremors, diarrhoea caused by strong emotions or nervousness.
Gelsenium can also combat anxiety and insomnia. The insomnia suffered by the patient is, in this case, caused by anxiety.
Argentum nitricum is an effective remedy in patients who are anxious and rush around everywhere. They are patients who start many things and leave them half done.
They become fearful as the exam date approaches. The fear and anxiety that the patient feels can provoke emotional diarrhoea, agitation and difficulties sleeping.
There may also be a disturbance in the patient’s motor coordination, where the patient stumbles and staggers. All of these symptoms can be avoided by using Argentum nitricum.
