Calming Exam Nerves with Homeopathy

Feeling nervous before an exam is perfectly normal. If however, the nervousness is excessive and clouds your mind, makes you feel jittery, sick to your stomach, or any other symptoms that may keep you from doing your best, there are a few homeopathic remedies that can help you feel more calm and focused.


Argentum nitricum

Heart palpitations, excessive sweating, dizzy, brain fag. Frequently runs to the bathroom, often diarrhea with nervousness.

I suggest using the 30c potency and take 1-3 pellets the night before, and the morning of the exam. If the exam is later in the day, you may want to take another dose of the indicated remedy an hour before the exam. Put the pellet(s) under your tongue a let it dissolve. You can also take a couple of pellets and add to a water bottle. Sip as needed during exam. Give the bottle a couple of shakes before each sip.
