Pointers for Finding the Homeopathic Medicine

For extreme anxiety with rapid heartbeat and an irrational fear about what is about to occur, give Argentum nitricum.

·         If there is weakness, trembling, dizziness, and diarrhea, give Gelsemium.

·         If the person fears he will make a fool of himself but tries to cover it up, the medicine is Lycopodium.

Dosage

·         Give three pellets of 30C one to two hours prior to the event or performance. Repeat every thirty minutes until there is improvement.

·         If there is no improvement after three doses, give a different medicine.

·         After you first notice improvement, give another dose only if symptoms begin to return.

·         Lower potencies (6X, 6C, 30X) may need to be given more often (every two to four hours).

·         Higher potencies (200X, 200C, 1M) generally need to be given only once. Repeat only if symptoms return with intensity; administer only in- frequently in this case.

What to Expect from Homeopathic Self-Care

Improvement in the symptoms should occur within five to thirty minutes.

Other Self-Care Suggestions

Count slowly from one to one hundred, taking long, deep breaths.

·         Visualize or imagine your last successful performance or presentation.

·         Think of sending love to all the people in the audience.

·         Sip a glass of room- temperature water.

·         Splash cold water on your face. I Tense and relax your muscles to release your nervous feelings.

·         If homeopathic medicines are not available, take five drops of Rescue Remedy (a Bach Flower Essence) every fifteen to thirty minutes beginning one to two hours prior to the event.
