Galphimia Glauca Overview

Written by sshowalter.

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.

In the US, over-the-counter homeopathic remedies are available in pharmacies and healthfood stores. Unlike herbs and supplements, manufacturers of homeopathic products are allowed to make strong healing claims on the labels, in part because one of the founders of the organization that became the Food and Drug Administration, Senator Royal Copeland, was a homeopathic physician. He made sure that homeopathic medicines were given a specially protected status.
