Similar State of Mind--Arsenicum Album

Homeopathic arsenicum album is a homeopathic remedy commonly used for food poisoning.  Homeopathic remedies, though, are selected based on how a person expresses a disease, not the disease itself.  Therefore, homeopathic arsenicum is not appropriate for all cases of food poisoning.

Here is how a person needing homeopathic arsenicum for food poisoning might present...
* Profound weakness--he or she may feel so weak that they cannot even stand up but must lie down
* Restlessness--may move from the couch to the floor to the toilet and then all over again
* Vomiting and diarrhea at the same time
* Chilliness
* Thirsty for small sips
* Burning pains
* Fear of being alone
* Certain they will die from this

Consider keeping a vial of homeopathic arsenicum album in the first aid kit. Experience has taught me that this remedy is sometimes needed when the store is closed.
