ECHINACEA ANGUSTIFOLIA/PURPUREA (purple coneflower) In both herbal and homeopathic form, echinacea is a blood and immune tonic and brings strength to the immune system. Echinacea is indicated for lymphatic inflammation, recurring ear infections, strep throat, full feeling in the upper part of the lungs, stuffy nose and head, dullness from headache, aching in limbs, sleepiness with confusion and weakness, and chilliness with nausea.
RANUNCULUS SCELERATUS (marsh buttercup) The keynote of Ranunculus sceleratus is the severe burning and scraping sensations in the throat. There may be fluent coryza with attacks of sneezing accompanied by headaches in which the head feels as if it were too large. The tongue is coated and mapped. There may be pain over the region of the liver with the feeling that diarrhea is about to set in as the illness progresses.
THUJA OCCIDENTALIS (arborvitae) Some of the symptoms of Thuja include constant dry, hacking coughs—usually in the evenings after lying down, chronic ear infections with purulent discharge, swelling of the inner ear with loss of hearing, and conjunctivitis with burning and stinging of the eyelids.
ZINGIBER OFFICINALE (ginger root) Some symptoms of Zingiber that apply here are smarting and burning of eyes, sensitivity to light with stinging pain, pain over the eyebrows, painful respiration, scratching sensation in the chest, dry hacking cough with morning mucus, and watery coryza in the nose and obstruction in sinuses with thick mucus.
