Of course, it is ideal in homeopathy to match the entire picture of symptoms that a person is displaying to the remedy that addresses the greatest number of those symptoms. However, in emergency situations, I have found that the remedies listed above cover a wide range of symptoms. It is also helpful to purchase a complete homeopathic kit to have on hand.
