What is Galphimia Glauca?

Galphimia glauca is most commonly used to treat the symptoms of allergies such as:

  • sinus pressure
  • swollen eyelids
  • sneezing
  • itchy eyes
  • watery eyes
  • nasal congestion

In homeopathy, herbs are prescribed in small doses to actually induce similar symptoms to those the individual is suffering from. The thought is that "like cures like" so small doses of herbs that exacerbate the symptoms will help the body cure those symptoms. Galphimia is associated with a symptom picture dominated by swollen eyelids, sneezing, skin rash, stomach pain, and sensitivity to weather changes, and is therefore helpful in treating those symptoms.

Homeopathic remedies are, by nature, completely nontoxic.

However, according to the principles of classical (or constitutional) homeopathy, versus disease-oriented (or symptomatic) homeopathy, these remedies can cause problems. On the way toward a cure, temporary exacerbation of symptoms are said to occur frequently. Such “homeopathic aggravations” are supposed to indicate a release of underlying problems, and are therefore seen as ultimately helpful, if temporarily unpleasant. However, there is no meaningful scientific evidence that such aggravations take place at any higher rate than could be accounted for by chance (and patient’s expectation).
