Agaricus Muscarius / Agaricus / Agar

Formal Name: Agaricus Muscarius / Amanita Muscaria

Also Known As: Agaricus, Fly Agaric, Bug Agaric

We’ve all seen a toadstool at some point in time in nature. Though they look to be harmless enough, the truth is that this fungus has some hallucinogenic properties.

In ancient times, the fly agaric was used for fly poison. It was also used to induce visionary states and even became part of a drink to create strength and stamina.

It was never looked to for medicinal purposes until the study of homeopathy found the value that it held in healing.

Agaricus, as a homeopathic remedy, offers some excellent healing powers. Since the common plant, when found in nature, can be dangerous if not handled properly, you see just how important preparation is especially with this particular homeopathic remedy. The entire fresh fungus or the dried cap is washed extensively and ground into a mashed powder. This mixture is then stepped in alcohol and strained, diluted, and succussed. What remains are virtually no traces of the plant itself, and certainly no toxic components. There is, however, a healing power in this mixture that has uncovered.

Homeopathic Remedies using Agaricus:

Benefits/Uses of Agaricus:


Agaricus is recommended for involuntary limb movements or twitching that are not only erratic in nature but are unpredictable as well. The individual may say that it almost feels as if their limbs are detached from their body.

Nervous System Disorders:

Another use for Agaricus is for degenerative neurological disorders; specifically one which causes twitching and spasms throughout the body. It may also develop into dementia or even multiple sclerosis over time. The symptoms seem to travel down the body in an almost diagonal pattern, and there is often sharp or shooting pains associated with this as well. Agaricus may work as a homeopathic remedy to help with the symptoms and even with the disorder itself.


In this instance, chilblains show up with burning and itching associated with them. The skin gets red and swollen as a result of this condition.

Parkinson’s disease:

The body becomes weak and the limbs start to tremble and twitch, slowly at first but then becoming more regular and violent over time. There may be a great sensitivity to touch and there may be a great deal of anxiety, fear, and despair. Agaricus is often looked to as a homeopathic remedy to help with this disease and the symptoms that an individual may suffer from.


Agaricus often helps relieve the symptoms and side effects of alcoholism that an individual may suffer through. This may be delirium, it may be an increase in appetite, and it may be a commonly puffy and red face.

Homeopathic Remedy Profile for Agaricus:

Those who benefit most from agaricus as a homeopathic remedy tend to be anxious and insecure, almost fearful at times. They often have morbid and scary thoughts about death and become obsessive about all of the terrible things that could happen to them. They suffer from great lethargy and seem to retreat into themselves, often wishing not to even engage in conversation at times.
