Flu Symptoms #1

The focus of this combination is digestive disturbances (flu-like symptoms) brought on by prolonged mental effort, stage fright, or performance anxiety. Along with digestive disturbances, the symptom picture may include fear, feelings of helplessness, anxiety, sleeplessness, vertigo, and, perhaps, a sensation of coldness alternating with rushes of heat.


The following is a small amount of information on each of the INGREDIENTS of this combination.

CHERRY PLUM (flower essence) Dr. Bach placed this remedy, and the Red Chestnut that is also in this combination, under the category of For Those Who Have Fear. The mind is overstrained and out of balance after prolonged mental effort. The mental exhaustion leads to digestive disturbances, prostration, flu-like symptoms, stage fright and performance anxiety with nausea.

FERRUM MURIATICUM (iron chloride) Symptoms include cramping, chronic diarrhea, passage of blood and mucus, face pale and anemic, vertigo, sleeplessness, and a sensation of coldness alternating with heat with this pattern possibly lasting for several hours.

KALI SULPHURICUM (potassium sulphate) Symptoms include colicky pains, an abdomen that is cold and distended, headaches that are worse in a warm room and in the evening (worse for warmth and in the evenings is true of most Kali sulphuricum symptoms), pressure and feeling of fullness in the stomach, nausea, vomiting, and vertigo.

RED CHESTNUT (flower essence) Extreme physical nervousness and anxious weakness, tightening in the stomach and abdominal region from fear, along with grief and fearful worry about family members. With the fear there are sometimes feelings of helplessness and self-blame for things that she feels that she might have done differently or things that she failed to do.
