Therapeutic byways by Anshutz E.P.

154. Sleep [Sleep]

Sleep [Sleep]

Bryonia [Bry]
      Is claimed to be a remedy for walking in sleep-somnambulism.
Phellandrium aquaticum [Phel]
      Dr. Ussher once cursed a case of a woman prone to fall asleep at any moments, even while engaged in her household duties. Phellandrium cured her. The 3d 11 potency is mostly used, though it can be given in tincture. Dose, 3 times daily.
Chamomile [Cham]
      It is said that Chamomile is a sure preventive of nightmare. This is an old idea, when they used Chamomile tea. Perhaps Chamomilla 3, or a lump of sugar saturated with Chamomilla 0, will answer the same purpose.
Oleander [Olnd]
      If you sleep in a room in which one of these plants is kept, or if one of these is near the sleeping room in summer, you will probably be sick-difficulty in awakening, pale, nervous, palpitation, weak and a tendency to paralysis. This according to Dr. Goullon, of Germany.
