I’ve written about Cuprum metallicum before. So, perhaps you remember its history of usefulness for restless legs, strabismus or colic. But today, I want to stress Cuprum’s ability to address spasms.

Muscle spasms? ✔️

Spasms and cramps of any muscles (legs, hands, back, neck, etc.) may be addressed with Cuprum metallicum 6, twice daily, until the condition is very much better.

Facial tics and twitches? ✔️

Yes, even that annoying eye twitch that we all get from time to time. Generally, these conditions are self-limiting (meaning they’ll go away of their own accord, given enough time). But as a neurological remedy, Cuprum has been shown to address the spasmodic nature of facial tics and twitches. It may be a choice to employ Cuprum twice daily, until the condition is very much better.

Spasms in the abdomen? ✔️

The stomach muscles perform many tasks, from keeping your organs neatly in place to supporting your body in motion. But the various muscles in the abdomen can experience painful spasms sometimes, signaling a need to contemplate Cuprum.

In fact, while we often initially think of Ipecac for vomiting, Cuprum is great for vomiting accompanied by spasms of any sort.

Whether the act of vomiting itself is spasmodic or the abdomen and stomach muscles are spasming during the sickness, Cuprum may likely be a tighter fit than Ipecac. If the sufferer is even experiencing concomitant spasms in unrelated areas (legs, hands or back) while vomiting, those symptoms are a call to consider Cuprum metallicum 6, as needed, until the condition is very much better.

Paroxysms of coughs? ✔️

Indeed, everyone has experienced a coughing jag. “Cough, cough, cough, cough — GASP — cough, cough, cough, cough.” You know the drill.

For spasmodic coughing fits that result in breathlessness or feel like an attack of suffocation, once again, homeopathy’s spasm medicine, Cuprum metallicum 6, may be just the ticket to regaining equilibrium. It’s worth a thought!

So, we’ve discussed several usages of the 6th potency here. However, in my practice, clients with frozen shoulder have reported success by utilizing Cuprum in the 200th potency. Consequently, I’d say no well-curated homeopathic kit should be without Cuprum metallicum in several potencies.

And my friends, in this coming week’s Memo to Mighty Members, I will share a fantastic organizational system for homeopathic medicines. Organizational tips are just one of the things we share in our private enclave, along with additional information on medicines, current events, homeopathic research, recipes, success stories, and the list goes on.

And pass on the good news of homeopathy!

P.S. Speaking of stomach spasms and vomiting, our guts are much more critical to our overall well-being than we realize. So many conditions — both physical and emotional — stem from gut dysfunction.

Many may not realize that homeopathy can be the needle-mover to bring the gut back to its optimal health … undoing years of antibiotic use and poor eating habits.

I created my course Good Gut, Bad Gut: A Homeopathic Strategy to Uproot Seemingly Unrelated Illness in Body and Mind to provide concrete solutions — solutions drawn from my almost 40 years of practice dealing with the gut and gut/psychology connections.

Intrigued? I encourage you to download this free infographic to show you that effective, polite homeopathic protocols (with reproducible results) do exist.

Joette laughingI am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

    As a mom sometimes I struggle with the definitions. For example, spamodic coughing vs relentless coughing. Stomach cramping vs stomach spasms. Muscle cramping or muscle spasms. For when you get a back spasm would you employ cuprum or would it be mag phos for a muscle cramp.

  2. Jennifer Sisco says:

    This sounds like a good remedy to have on hand. Can I use 30c with the same results?

    Thank you!

    what frequency for Cuprum 200 for frozen shoulder?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, PHom M says:

      I don’t use 200c for frozen shoulder.

      1. Suzanne says:

        In the post it says, “However, in my practice, clients with frozen shoulder have reported success by utilizing Cuprum in the 200th potency.”

        Was that an error?

        1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, PHom M says:

          No error.

    Dear Joette,
    Thank you for this article!
    Would you consider Cuprum metallicum 6 for a young child who gets a twitch in her eye every time she has a meltdown?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, PHom M says:

      I’m sorry but I can’t give advice on this site. It may have significance but its not necessarily this simple. Before you make a decision to use any homeopathic, I urge you to at least refer to your materia medica to be more certain of your choice.

  6. Shelley says:

    In the case of severe spasms in the back and rib region, could I give Cuprum 6 every 15 min. along with sipping Mag phos 6x in hot water, or should they be taken away from each other?
