(NewsTarget) Shock is a medical condition defined by a low level of blood pressure and homeopathic remedies have been shown to treat shock effectively. Shock can cause a loss of blood flow to the brain that is life threatening. Homeopathic remedies have a 200-year clinical record of cure in treating shock. The remedies are prescribed on the individual symptoms of the person and not on the medical condition alone.

Symptoms of Shock
Symptoms of shock include cold hands, weak and rapid pulse, rapid breathing or hyperventilation, and possible septic shock. The skin can be cold and moist, or blue and pale. Urine output is diminished and the person might appear confused, sleepy or not aware of their surroundings.

Aconitum
The homeopathic remedy Aconitum is an alkaloid from the roots and stems of the Aconitum napellus plant, reports Clarke's "Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica." Though known as a poisonous plant, if used in homeopathic doses, Aconite is used to treat shock. There have been no studies showing the use of Aconite for shock; however, the homeopathic literature, including Clarke's "Dictionary," refer to numerous cures. Though it is a poisonous plant, the small amount of tincture used in homeopathic remedies makes this remedy safe for consumption and not toxic.

Arnica montana
Arnica to a homeopathic remedy commonly used to treat shock. They recommend its use immediately after injury to tissues, especially if there is bruising or swelling. The person needing this remedy may feel worse by being touched. Clarke's "Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica" adds that Arnica is made from a tincture of the Leopard's Bane plant. The German name for the plant is Fallkraut, indicating that the plant has a particular folk tradition in healing the effects of falling. Arnica is readily available in many health food stores and specialty stores. It can be taken at the first sign of trauma or shock, advises Clarke.

Stramonium
The homeopathic remedy Stramonium is used for shocks and night terrors, according to Clarke's "Dictionary of Materia Medica." The remedy, made from Thorn Apple or Jamestown Weed, is useful for shock particularly when brought on by fright. Stramonium is also useful for children who are wakened in the night by nightmares and are disoriented upon waking

Causes of Shock
Shock can be caused by heart problems such as heart disease or a heart attack, or other medical conditions, such as anemia. Pregnancy can also trigger an attack of shock, as can drug overdose, surgery, and alcohol abuse. Allergic reactions to drugs or foods can cause shock as well.

Warning
If the condition is life threatening, emergency medical attention is suggested so that blood pressure can be stabilized and oxygen administered, as necessary.
