Bryonia Alb

A plant in the 'hops' family that grows high like a vine. It's very dry, likes dry soil.. and so Bryonia itself is a dry remedy.

The cough is dry and hard, the fever is dry, the person is thirsty for large quantities of water.. gulps it down.. and the mind too can be dry which comes over as irritable and grumpy.

It's a great homeopathic remedy for sprains where the least little movement hurts a lot, and inflammation that hurts with movement.Pains are stitching and sharp.
