Hypericum perforatum (Hyper.) is especially useful for injuries to nerve-rich areas such as fingers, toes, and the spine (especially the coccyx). It relieves the intense pain – either sharp, or shooting upwards along the nerve – that follows crushes, blows, cuts, grazes, or puncture wounds to these areas. It also helps some types of phantom pain, and shock, or ailments that follow shock. Those needing Hypericum usually want warm drinks.
