When studying homeopathic remedies, it is wise to refer to the great medical minds of this noble art. Dr. William

Boericke’s book Homeopathic Materia Medica is as pertinent today as it was in its first edition of 1901. Here is what Dr. Boericke tells us about the various remedies appropriate for anxiety and panic:

1. Arsenicum album: “Pulse more rapid in morning dilatation. Cyanosis. Angina pectoris. Great anguish and restlessness. Changes place continually. Fears of death, of being left alone. Great fear, with cold sweat. Despair drives him from place to place. General sensibility increased.”

2. Nux vomica: “Nux vomica is pre-eminently the remedy for many of the conditions incident to modern life. Seeks stimulants, coffee, wine, possibly in excess. These things are associated with other indulgences; at table, he takes preferably rich and stimulating food. These conditions produce an irritable nervous system, hypersensitive and over-impressionable, which Nux will do much to soothe and calm. Hypochondriac states depending thereon….always seems to be out of tune; inharmonious spasmodic action.”

3. Aconitum: “After-pains, with fear and restlessness. Great fear, anxiety, and worry accompany every ailment, however trivial. Forebodings and fears. Fears death but believes that he will soon die; predicts the day. Restlessness, tossing about.”

4. Coffea cruda: “It stimulates the functional activity of all organs, increasing the nervous and vascular activity. Great nervous agitation and restlessness. Extreme sensitiveness characterizes this remedy. Unusual activity of mind and body. Bad effects of sudden emotions, surprises, joy, etc. Nervous palpitation.”
