Homeopathic remedy for

Weakness - dehydration (loss of bodily fluids)

Cinchona is indicated in any situation where there is a great loss of bodily fluids;
diarrhea, blood loss after an operation or miscarriage, after continuous vomiting, sweating too much, etc. Cinchona will restore the bodily weakness in a remarkable way. Cinchona has a tonic effect on the stomach.

Cinchona is also an excellent
liver-gallbladder remedy. Its characteristic symptoms include the periodicity (regular recurrence of symptoms (every other day, every 7th or 14th day); great bloating all over the abdomen, with pain not relieved by passing gas; and painless diarrhea. The diarrhea gushes, watery, yellow or colorless accompanied by belching and flatulence. The abdomen is very sore upon the slightest pressure.
