The homeopathic remedy Ignatia is made from the seeds of the Strychnos ignatia tree. The beans of the plant contain the alkaloids strychnine and brucine. This is also contained in the Nux Vomica seeds. It is no surprise that there are similarities in Nux Vomica and Ignatia. The strychnine is more stronger in the Ignatia and therefore is is a more destructive picture than Nux Vomica. Ignatia is on a far more emotional level than Nux Vomica.

The emotional sphere is very strong and important with Ignatia, the theme is to express that built up emotion and grief. The main characteristic of Ignatia is grief, every negative in their life is expressed as grief which becomes guilt and regret. The positive emotion of grief is benevolence. This theme is very much a metal in the chinese five element system. The positive is about letting go of old waste, thoughts to become receptive of what is pure and new. The energy of silence you can hear the pin drop after the metal element has infused the room.

Ignatia often have many problems associated with lungs, large intestine and colon. In a negative state of Ignatia the patient can feel as if poisoned by certain toxins, because the constitution picture often mimics the substance it is derived from and in this case it is a poisonous substance.
