Drosera, commonly known as the sundews, is one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants, with at least 194 species.
People take Drosera as a tea for various breathing problems including bronchitis,asthma, whooping cough (pertussis), windpipe infections (tracheitis), coughing fits, and dry cough. They also take it for stomach ulcers and cancer.
In homeopathy, drosera is chiefly a remedy for cough and it is given to people who have been suffering from violent and spasmodic coughs. This type of cough actually deteriorates following midnight and when it becomes too severe, the coughing results in choking, nosebleeds, vomiting and even cold sweating that subsequently leads to chattiness. In addition, this homeopathic medication is also effective for treating growing pains in children that are accompanied by an itchy feeling in the leg bones, and it also helps to provide relief from bone pains that feel better when the body is stretched. Besides the health conditions mentioned above, drosera is also useful in curing a husky, profound, indistinct voice, rigid muscles, and unbendable ankles.
People who require the homeopathic remedy drosera most are usually restive, stubborn and find it problematic in focusing on anything when they are sick. In addition, such people also suffer from a feeling of harassment and always imagine that others would bring in bad news for them.
While drosera is mainly used to treat violent and spasmodic cough, such as whooping cough, it is also useful for children enduring growing pains and restiveness. Below is a brief discussion on the benefits of using drosera for both these health conditions.
