The symptoms of fainting are coldness, paleness, and dizziness, and in severe cases complete loss of consciousness brought on by a drop in the supply of blood to the brain.
The causes are varied; they include shock, severe pain, extreme tiredness or hunger, emotional shock, and very occasionally, something more serious.
Usually the sufferer will feel better after 10 - 15 minutes. If not, and there is no obvious reason for fainting, seek medical help immediately. Ensure that the person's head is not higher than the body, but otherwise do not move the person until he/she feels ready. Then give a glass of water with the Rescue Remedy continuously every few minutes.
If the person is unconscious, moisten the lips with Rescue Remedy continuously every few minutes. If the cause is shock keep the person warm. If the person is doing well after about 15 minutes you may not need to give a remedy. Otherwise consider the following treatments.
Fainting has been treated by homeopathy.
Fainting requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.

|Aconite - Use Aconite for sudden shock resulting in intense fright and anxiety. The person feels that he/she is going to die, and the fear lingers on after the sufferer has seemingly recovered.|
|Arnica - This is usually the first remedy to use for shock that follows an accident involving physical pain or injury.|
|Carbo veg - Nicknamed the 'corpse reviver', it is used when the person looks cold and still and is very slow to come round. It is a good remedy for collapse from exhaustion.|
|China - Use this remedy for fainting and weakness caused by loss of fluids, whether from vomiting, diarrhea or loss of blood.|
|Ignatia - This acts on the emotions and you should give it when fainting occurs on hearing bad news or of an emotional loss.|
|Pulsatilla - Give Pulsatilla when a warm 'stuffy' atmosphere is the cause of fainting. A very 'emotional' remedy, if you know the person use it if they tend to be gentle, mild mannered, and give up easily.|
