Bryonia Alba (Wild Hops)This remedy is best known for its use in headaches. Bryonia is called for in headaches or other acute pain syndromes (like injuries which are worse from the slightest movement). Typically the person will want to be left alone, in the dark, with no noise—to the point they don't want to speak for fear of making their headache worse. Even opening their eyes would aggravate their headache!
Bryonia is typically used for the headache which starts above the left eye, goes to the back of the head and then engulfs the entire skull! It is acute, piercing pain, worse at 9 p.m. The onset is gradual (unlike the sudden onset of Belladonna), and the headache feels better from local applications of heat. There is usually improvement of the pain with strong pressure or lying on the painful side as it prevents any motion of that part. The person is extremely thirsty yet has a very dry mouth; in fact all of the mucous membranes are dry.

It works well for respiratory infections beginning in the nose and going down to the chest. From there it is a super remedy for avoiding and treating pneumonia and pleurisy. The Bryonia cough is similar to that of Belladonna: a dry cough aggravated by the slightest motion, and fever with great thirst. The onset is more gradual, and the thirst is even greater, as this is one of our thirstiest remedy states. The Bryonia cough is aggravated upon entering a warm room. Motion is generally intolerable. They most always prefer to be left alone. Coughing and breathing may be very painful, with rapid, short respiration. The person may have to sit up or lay on an incline of pillows to breathe more comfortably.
