Palliative - Spectrum of Homeopathy 02/2016
Joachim Stürmer: Restless fear of death
Very many people enter an Arsenicum state before dying, which is why Arsenicum is regarded as the most important homeopathic remedy in palliative medicine. The author would like to increase the awareness of Arsenicum album, moving beyond the clichés to discover the numerous hidden cases that are hard to recognize at first glance. Arsenicum iodatum is differentiated as a warm Arsenicum for typical B symptoms, Phosphorus as the important complementary remedy, and Tarantula, Latrodectus mactans, and Aconite with a similarly fearful restlessness before death.
