Homeopathic Acute Prescribing III, Arsenicum
Flu as an Example
In homeopathy the Arsenicum patient is very chilly, exhausted, and restless. The fatigue and the restlessness are a tormenting combination: the person desperately needs rest, but when they try to lie still, they find they cannot. When the homeopathic patient gets up to move around, they are very quickly exhausted again. Their body is very cold and has to be wrapped up warmly, but their face may feel hot at the same time. If they have to uncover their body, they may have terrible chills.
