The essence of Stramonium is the feeling of being abandoned. Edvard Munch’s The Scream visually captures the essence of Stramonium.

In this terrifying state, the brain may shut down. The person may not recognize any familiar surroundings or people. All they want is to be in a safe place.

At night they fear the dark because it represents the unknown and they feel threatened by the possibility of danger. They may imagine ghosts and spirits in the dark.

During the day they continually try to attract attention. Attention seeking may alternate sudden anger violence. Both are due to a subconscious fear of being abandoned.

The original cause of a Stramonium state is sudden shock. This could be an intense scare, an intense fever or an emotional shock. Stramonium is very useful for people suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Physical symptoms may include stomachaches, spasms, cramps, bed-wetting and stuttering.
