The Tabacum homeopathic strain is obtained from the leaves of cultivated tobacco. For the preparation, homeopaths use fresh leaves picked after the flowering period and which have not yet undergone a fermentation procedure.
Cultivated tobacco, also known under the scientific name of Nicotiana tabacum, is a plant that mainly comes from Central America. However, today it is widely cultivated around the world, in particular to meet the needs in terms of the manufacture of manufactured tobacco.
From a descriptive point of view, this plant of the botanical family Solanaceae is easy to recognize, because it is often found in groups in plantations. Its leaves are both large, thick and slimy to the touch. As for its flowers, depending on the variety, they can be pink, white or even yellowish green. In addition, the whole plant gives off an odor that is both sweet and pungent.
Finally, the main active element of tobacco is nicotine which is an alkaloid.
In which cases to use it?
Tobacco and nausea:
This homeopathic medicine helps treat nausea of all kinds. In cases of motion sickness, for example, it improves the characteristic symptoms that usually accompany the irrepressible urge to vomit. These include dizziness, cold sweats or pallor in the face.
During the period of pregnancy, and especially during the first three months, this medicine helps to reduce the frequency of morning sickness. It also reduces other signs such as hypersecretion of saliva and dizziness.
Also, it should be noted that this remedy proves effective in the treatment of any medical condition that is accompanied by nausea, vomiting and dizziness. It is also indicated in case of infant colic and spasmodic seizures.
Tabacum and tobacco:
This remedy is a homeopathic alternative to stop tobacco addiction. To do this, homeopaths use a branch of homeopathy called isotherapy or isopathy. However, it should be noted that this method only works for cases of chemical, not psychological, dependence. Indeed, the experiments carried out have shown that this drug participates in the decrease in nicotine levels in the blood.
Note that this decrease facilitates the smoking cessation and, at the same time, also makes it easy to reduce tobacco consumption.
What is the recommended dosage?
Before each treatment, it is necessary to consult a homeopathic doctor. Indeed, only the latter will be able to indicate the appropriate dosage and also the galenic form suitable for the treatment (oral solution in drops, granules and many others).
- Travel sickness: dilution 7 to 9 CH, to be taken at least 3 times a day
- Tobacco withdrawal: dilution 7 to 9 CH twice a day
In the event of spasmodic attacks, combine TABACUM D6 and CUPRUM D1 ointment, to be applied locally.
