Homeopathic Remedy Bryonia Alba: Helps coughs and broken bones

How can Bryonia Alba help my cough and broken bones?

Most Homeopathic remedies have more than one use and can cover a wide range of symptoms which include physical, mental and/or emotional.  Bryonia is a homeopathic remedy that has many uses. Bryonia is commonly used for headaches, broken bones, other injuries, dizziness, pneumonia, and coughs.  How do we know this?

Homeopathic remedy uses are discovered by what is called a Proving.  Proving’s are done using a scientific method of a double blind test.  In this test some people are given the Homeopathic remedy and others are given placebos (unmedicated blank pellets).  The participants do not know which group they are in. Everyone takes the same set number of doses each day. 


After a period of time some participants will start to exhibit symptoms that can range from physical, mental and/or emotional states. They may experience headaches on the right side of the head or a pulling in the right groin area as if they had a hernia.  The participants report these new feelings or sensations, which are recorded.  The symptom(s) that are reported the most by the participants can be considered as strong key symptoms for that Homeopathic remedy.  These symptoms are temporary and the participant will go back to their normal health once they stop taking the remedy.     At the conclusion, study results are compiled into 2 books:  Materia Medica – a book that lists the Homeopathic remedies and their uses and a Repertory which is a book that lists symptoms and the associated homeopathic remedies that are known to address that particular symptom.  For example, the major homeopathic remedies to address broken bones are, Arnica Montana, Bryonia Alba, Calcarea Phosphorica, Carbolicum Acidum, Ruta Gavelolens and Symphytum Officinale. This is only one example of the well over 3,000 homeopathic remedies.  

How do you know which homeopathic remedy is the best match for your symptoms? That is a whole other topic and one I will talk about in a future blog.  Stay tuned.
