Argentum Nitricum in homeopathy: what are its benefits?

Argentum Nitricum: what is this homeopathic remedy?

Bryonia: definition. The homeopathic remedy Argentum Nitricum is made from a chemical substance synthesized in the laboratory: silver nitrate (AgNO3). Traditionally used in photography, silver nitrate is made by bringing nitric acid into contact with silver: a salt is obtained which dissolves in water.

In homeopathy, Argentum Nitricum is especially recommended against anxiety and fears, in particular when these have a negative impact on the digestive sphere. It is thus a homeopathic remedy prescribed against phobias, nervousness and anxiety, but also against stress ulcers, emotional diarrhea and tachyphagia – it is about eating too quickly.

To know. Do not confuse Argentum Nitricum (obtained from silver nitrate, therefore) and Argentum Metallicum: this homeopathic remedy (directly obtained from silver, the metal) is rather recommended in cases of pharyngitis or laryngitis, but also in case of genital pain (ovarian or testicular).

Attention ! Argentum Nitricum is a homeopathic remedy: it is therefore a complementary treatment / adjunct treatment which can in no way replace medical treatment or a consultation with the doctor! If in doubt, do not hesitate to ask your pharmacist or your doctor for advice.
