Fear of Flying, Homeopathy and Essences

Fear of Flying, Homeopathy and Essences

Posted by: Casey

Hi, I have Mimulus, Easy AirTravel (homeopathic remedy for fear of flying which contains aconitum nap 30c, arg nit 30c, and arsenicum alb 30c) and Ativan. My question is can all of these be taken around the same time or will they have affects on it. I am getting on a plane and I am very nervous, I want to take the homeopathics first, but if they don’t work very good I want to take the Ativan.

Dear Casey,

You could read the remedy’s description and find which fits your symptoms the best. The 3 homeopathic remedies are big “anxiety remedies”. and you can check on the Hpathy website for a description… in summary, Aconitum is fear of death, sudden, Arg Nit anxiety, obsessive, sugar craving, Arsenicum is obsessive compulsive and will want someone to help…. The combination of these 3 is called AAA and a lot of homeopaths suggest to take the 3 remedies at the same time if it is easier…. so do what is convenient…. do not hesitate to repeat as soon as the symptoms seem to worsen.

Good luck, and enjoy the flight 🙂
