(NaturalNews) In light of various, recent, violent events worldwide, many people are suffering from mixed reactions of shock, unbearable grief, fear and terror. Sudden, unexpected acts of violence, especially against innocents like children and animals produce immense sorrow and outrage along with feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Other than taking pharmaceutical drugs that often don't work and produce varying degrees of side effects, little else is available to help individuals relieve and manage their intense emotions. Homeopathic medicines are unique in their ability to ease many of these feelings into a place where they become manageable, even though it still takes time for them to fade and heal.


The first remedy to think of after an immediate shock of any kind is Arnica. Arnica is effective in relieving shock on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Whether the shock arises from banging your head after falling off a tricycle to the shock of being shot or hearing that your child was killed, Arnica is the correct remedy for the victim and for those around who are suffering.


Aconite is also an excellent remedy for shock, especially after a sudden, unexpected violent occurrence where there's tremendous fear involved. The person will be extremely anxious and restless, fearing they may die and experiencing terror. They may be screaming, pacing, running around not knowing what to do and wringing hands; alternatively, they may completely collapse.


Homeopathic opium is helpful for those who experience lingering fear and terror long after the cause of the incident has passed. The individual is often in a stupor, dull, numb and insensitive to their surroundings -- the effects of suppressing the original fright, which remains just below the surface of consciousness.


Ignatia is the first remedy to take if you're experiencing feelings of grief, especially when accompanied by a sense of hysteria, uncontrolled crying and anxiety. Feelings of apprehensiveness and acute suffering made worse from drinking coffee. Lots of sighing and sobbing, unwilling to communicate, introspective and prefers being alone.

Natrum Muriaticum

Nat Mur is needed by many people who experience the long-term effects of terrible grief. The individual is usually deeply depressed and unable to let go of painful past memories. They don't like being consoled and prefer being left alone to cry. Nat Mur is often needed after a terrible shock when Ignatia fails to act.

Homeopathic pharmacies

Opium is not available for sale in the U.S. but is available from homeopathic pharmacies in England. If you are unable to find any remedy, contact one of the online homeopathic pharmacies in my article at the following link: http://www.naturalnews.com


If you're unsure of what potency to use for any of the above remedies and are unable to contact a homeopath, it's recommended that you use a 30C potency, which is medium strength.
