This week’s entry into the Emergency Remedy Series is Aconitum napellus or Aconite as we call it for short.

Uh-oh. I can see your quizzical gaze from here. (Don’t forget, first and foremost, I’m a mom. I have eyes in the back of my head!) 

I know, you’re thinking, “Poor Joette! She must be so busy she doesn’t remember Aconite was the very first remedy she discussed in her Emergency Remedy Series.” 

Well, don’t you worry. I most assuredly do remember talking to you about Aconite, but we only discussed one aspect of it. The beauty of this remedy — besides how quickly, efficiently and politely it works — is how versatile it is!

That’s why Aconitum was (and is) my number one emergency remedy … the one I always have in my purse.

Aconitum napellus is a brilliant choice for eye injuries. It not only addresses the shock of an eye injury (which, let’s face it, is always more shocking than most injuries because our eyes are so precious and irreplaceable to us), but it also attends to the injury itself. 

You may have heard me say this before, but Aconite is the Arnica of the eye.

One of my team members was clipping hedges in her yard. Ferociously clipping, apparently. She admits she was moving too fast, leaned over to snip a low-hanging sprig, and poked herself in the eye with another branch she had overlooked.

She had her glasses on, which partially deflected the incoming stick, or it could have been catastrophic. 

Even with the deflection, the stick penetrated the white of her eye, and a tiny hole was visible at the point where it had made entry. 

Her wound was no joke.

I did have to laugh, though — just a bit — when she told me that her glasses flew directly into the jaws of her hedge clipper before she could stop her manic motion. Her glasses were “clipped” as well as the hedge. Yep.

Those were her glasses in the photograph above … may they rest in peace.

Her eye? Luckily, her vision was not affected, so she felt comfortable that the emergency room was not required. Her eye would heal — and probably heal more quickly than her ego. 

Customarily, Aconite 200 is taken immediately after the injury and used as needed every few hours until very much better. For wounds to the eye such as hers, homeopathy provides comfort that she was doing all she could to promote her body’s natural healing. 

(I should add: If the pain had been extraordinary, Hypericum 200 or even Hypericum 1M might have been added as well.)

Injuries to the eyes occur more frequently than we imagine, and, in general, they happen quickly, as in my staff member’s case. For this reason, Aconitum napellus should be in your purse, in your pocket, in your medicine cabinet, and in your first aid kit at home, at work and in your car. When needed, the eyes will have it!

(And a good optometrist can fix the glasses.)

Pass on the good news of homeopathy — especially in cases requiring first aid!

Warmly,

Joette Calabrese

P.S. There are so many homeopathic remedies to remember for emergencies. When you’re in a panic, wouldn’t it be easier to have a handy reference guide to refer to rather than depending on your memory? Please click here for my free homeopathy first aid chart, First Aid in a Pinch. Don’t wait to print it out. You never know what’s just around the corner.

I 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.


Joette is not a physician and the relationship between Joette and her clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.

    Hi Joette,
    Would Aconite help dissipate a blood clot in the eye from a Retina vein occlusion? Is there a remedy that can be taken to prevent it from happening again? Thank you.

      Aconitum is not the medicine I think of for blood clots. These kinds of extreme situations are covered in my course, Survivalist Guide to Homeopathy.

  2. Rose Carson says:

    Is there a homeopathic remedy for macular degeneration — I was just diagnosed with wet MD.

  3. Mary Ann McMullen says:

    My husband (2 years ago, aged 67) suddenly developed what the eye specialist termed, Adies Tonic Pupil – in his left eye, where the pupil remains dilated, causing him headaches and of course sensitivity to light.We were told there is no remedy,but his eyesight is worsening. Wondering if there was any homeopathic remedy he could try? Many thanks.

  4. Stacey Rae says:

    Hi Joette, I was wondering if this would be helpful with chalazions on the lids of the eyes? I seem to be getting reoccurring ones often.
    Thank you,
    Stacey Rae

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Chalazions are actually a skin condition that happens to be near the eyes. This medicine will not correct them.

  5. Susan says:

    Hi Joette, would this remedy be helpful for eye floaters? I have searched your site but can’t find any other suggestions. Thanks Susan

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      It’s not specific for eye floaters, however, if there are other eye or sight conditions, its use may be justified.
