Gelsemium is given to treat the first stage of fever with muscle pain, trembling and twitching. It is very beneficial in relieving the symptoms of colds and influenza, and may be taken for that purpose together with Euphrasia.
Gelsemium is good for treating headaches which intensify with movement and feel as if there is a tight band around the head. Such pains often begin at the back of the skull and spread over the crown to the eyes.
Jet lag, tiredness and exhaustion respond well to Gelsemium. Anticipatory fears and phobias accompanied by trembling are also helped by this remedy.
Gelsemium acts to fortify the immune system and may be indicated for the treatment of nausea, nervous anxiety, and muscle aches related to fever caused by a nervous disorder such as multiple sclerosis.
