Aesculus Hippocastanum


The most salient feature of Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) is mental confusion. Physical and mental fatigue can naturally result in some sort of mental confusion and restlessness but in Aesculus, the mental confusion is aggravated by sleep. On waking up in the morning, the patient is confused and disorientated as to where he is and what is going on around him. A healthy person can also feel lost in a strange place following a journey, but this confusion is very short-lived. In the Aesculus patient, the mental confusion is very prolonged. The memory is weak, and there is feeling of anger or grief along with a dislike for every kind of activity.
The Aesculus children have poor memory. They are angry by nature and if they are startled in sleep, and if treated harshly, they can go into mental shock and become unconscious. Sometimes, it can lead to epilepsy. Aesculus is not only for children, but it can be used in patients of all ages. Congestion of the eyes is a very salient sign of Aesculus Hippocastanum. This is due to the weakness of the blood vessels of the eyes. The eyes become red on slight increase of pressure. Some Homoeopaths call it the piles of the eyes. The eyes feel heavy and watery. The eyelids and the area below the left eye exhibit twitching of the small muscles and the eyeballs hurt.
An Aesculus patient generally feels cold. Pain is alleviated by heat application. Pains fleet around the whole body, as in Pulsatilla. However, the Pulsatilla symptoms however are aggravated by heat, and cold relieves them. The Pulsatilla patient has the tendency to remain grieved, but with a mild temperament. The Aesculus patient also inclines to be in a state of grief, but is hot-tempered and feels better by heat. In an Aesculus patient, the back constantly feels weak and tired. The backbone also is weak. The patient staggers on walking due to Aesculus Hippocastanum 36 the weakness of the back and legs. He finds it difficult to stand up after sitting down.
