This article will cover Coffea Cruda uses, benefits, dosage & side effects in detail.

So let’s get started –

What is Coffea Cruda

Coffea Cruda is prepared from coffee beans. But unlike coffee, the beans are not roasted to prepare the medicine. Due to this, homeopathic medicine has the exact opposite benefits of what coffee, the drink, has.

Caffeine remains the main active ingredient. As seen from excessive coffee consumption, the effects of caffeine are the symptoms that Coffea cruda is used to treat.

Amongst its innumerable uses, the most favorite use of Coffea cruda among homeopaths is its use as an antidote. Coffea cruda is a perfect antidote to almost every single homeopathic medicine.

Indeed, in cases of aggravation of symptoms due to homeopathic remedies, don’t be too surprised if your doctor advises you to take a cup of strong coffee!

Coffea cruda is best described in one word, ‘excitement.’

Coffea stimulates the mind and makes the person extraordinarily hyper and full of energy. He is a very chirpy and happy person, full of ideas and lots of innovative ways to implement them.

He hops about excitedly while talking. Indeed, his enthusiasm is infectious and catches everyone eventually.

The coffea person’s mind is like a sponge that absorbs everything quickly. Impressionable is what the stalwarts of homeopathy use to describe this quality of the Coffea person.

When all this is taken to the extreme, the coffea person will come across to you as a workaholic.

A highly driven person who relentlessly pushes others to do the same. He becomes anxious and tosses and turns in his bed at night if all the ideas in his chaotic mind are not put into action.

His mind is in turmoil, and he is always anxious. He turns into a person who weeps over trifles and laments over them. He is frightened easily, especially by pleasant surprises.

Teeth Problems-

Coffea acts wonderfully for neuralgic pains that originate from a decayed or carried tooth.

This is due to the incarcerated gas inside the abdomen. Women tend to suffer from anxiety and despair due to the abdominal pain caused by the gas.

The rashes appear suddenly and have no particular affinity to any part of the body. They sprout suddenly anywhere on the body.

The affected part is bright red, extremely sensitive, and very very hot. The sensitivity is so severe that the person cannot beat to have the part covered.

Motion increases the pain. You will also meet the doctor walking towards the patient to examine the rash with resistance, so much is the intolerability of motion.
