Category of complementary medicine: Homoeopathic medicine. Homoeopathic mode of action: Homoeopathy is a system of medicine, built on the philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and should be allowed to do so. Homoeopathic medicines work energetically to stimulate the body's innate ability to heal by promoting or supporting the functioning of various organ systems. It works according to the principle of 'likes cure like' such that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person, can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person. Over the last 300 years, observations, experiments, homoeopathic provings and clinical experience have resulted in the collection of symptoms associated with particular remedies which are recorded in traditional homoeopathic materia medica. This medicine has been compiled based on an in-depth knowledge of the tradition and application of homoeopathy. The relevant symptoms from the composite remedy pictures are as follows: Anamirta cocculus relieves nausea and pregnancy nausea associated with backache, motion sickness, aversion to food and drink, cramping gastric pain during or after meals and hiccough. Symptoms are often accompanied by aversion to the smell of food, distended abdomen and abdominal weakness. Antimonium crudum treats heartburn, nausea, vomiting, constant belching and bloating after eating. It is indicated for colic in babies that regurgitate or vomit curdled milk after a feed and tend to be fretful. Arsenicum iodatum relieves vomiting after food intake, epigastric pain and intense thirst with immediate vomiting of the water. Atropa belladonna treats a tendency to loss of appetite, aversion to meat and milk, nausea, empty retching and spasmodic hiccough. Carbo vegetabilis acts on the vascular system to improve oxidation of all body tissues. It treats flatulence with tension and pain and burning, crampy, radiating gastric pain. These symptoms are usually associated with slow digestion and repetitive belching. Cephaelis acuminata acts on the gastric nerve to treat spasmodic irritations of the stomach like persistent nausea and vomiting especially after difficult-to-digest foods. Cinchona succirubra is indicated for vomiting of undigested food, slow digestion, flatulence and belching without relief, hiccough and bloatedness. It soothes darting horizontal pains in the mid-abdominal region and gallstone colic. Daphne mezereum acts on the upper gastro-intestinal tract to counteract nausea and vomiting, chronic gastritis with burning gastric pain, flatulence and enteritis with shooting abdominal pains. Magnesium phosphoricum has an antispasmodic action and relieves abdominal bloating and flatulent colic often causing the legs to be drawn up. Strychnos nux-vomica treats nausea in the morning and after eating, flatulence, sour, bitter repeating dyspepsia with bruised soreness of the abdominal wall. Symptoms are associated with modern lifestyle, mental strain, irritability, dependency on stimulants, love of rich, stimulating food and wine.
