Homeopathic Bryonia Alba is used for Flu, fevers, coughs, headaches, sore throat, joint pain
Ailments characterised by pain espeically when first moving, or worse with motion.
Worse for movement e.g. in pneumonia or pleurisy it will be found that the animal prefers to lie on the affected side, bringing pressure to bear and thus restricting movement. Synovitis and joint swellings generally may need this remedy. Mastitis in cattle where the gland remains hard after treatment will probably benefit.
