Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house we go! And to your sister’s and brother’s and maybe another’s and stuffing and eggnog and pies, oh my…before you know it, the holiday becomes a time of over eating and over drinking.  So what can we do to prepare?  Keep these must-have remedies on hand and be prepared for unending feasting.

The best way to use these homeopathic remedies is to take one dose every 3-4 hours over the period of 1-2 days.  When improved, stop.

1)    When over eating has caused nausea that you wish would just produce vomiting to get it over with, then your remedy is Nux vomica 30.

2)    Nux vomica is also a capitol choice for the proverbial hangover.  It will end nausea and vomiting in relatively short order.

3)    When relentless vomiting is the main symptom, try Ipecac 30.

4)    When there is simple indigestion and over acidity, then Nat phos 6x can be taken every hour. Use in place of antacids.

5)    For true food poisoning such that causes chills, stomach pains and anxiety then Arsenicum album 30 should be taken. This is best saved for when your turkey is tainted.

6)    And one more tip for good measure! For indigestion, add a splash of vinegar to a glass of water and drink. It will bring soothing relief.

Try these tried and true homeopathic remedies this year and you might just find it easier to enjoy yourself – Happy Thanksgiving!

I am nauseous from food poisoning

I am Arsenicum album

 

 

 

Who am I?

I am Nux vomica

So, just  remember us especially when you have a gastro                                               intestinal problem.

I love those “itis” diseases. You know, the ones that place “itis” after the noun that determines the location of the disease. Since it is means ” inflammation of”, it’s easy to determine the disease. Tendonitis = inflammation of the tendons. Tonsillitis=inflammation of the tonsils. Hence, gingivitis=inflammation of the gingiva. By breaking down the word into its components, it not only gives us information, but comfort in knowing that the disease is often not as serious as it sounds.

So it is with gingivitis. Generally, it is not a disease of severity in our world today. There are, however, varying degrees of severity. If it’s a mild case, then herbs can be curative.

One of the easiest ways to treat gingivitis is with Myrrh. Yes, the gift given by the king at Jesus’ birth. That in itself has value in my book. Another important ingredient is Propolis, which is found in honey. Both are available in high quality toothpaste purchased from a reputable health food store. Having said this, in my estimation, it’s always better to make what ever you can at home. (No hidden ingredients for the sake of shelf life or economy.) If you choose this path, both of these herbs can be purchased in tincture form, again from a health food store. Place 10 drops of each in a glass of water, then swish in the mouth 2-3 times per day, more often if the problem is severe.

So, local measures of treatment are important. However, if the gingivitis is of an ulcerative nature with severe erosion and halitosis, the problem needs to be approached with a greater degree of person-specific treatment. Homeopathic remedies have repeated success in treating this bacterial infection without antibiotics. Let’s see what is available.

The key homeopathic remedy for gingivitis is Mercurius sol 30. This is of particular value when the tongue is heavily coated. It should be taken thrice daily for one week . Then one week off and then resumed again the following week. Alternate weeks on and off until results are complete, but no longer than over a period of 2 months. If the tongue isn’t coated, then use Nitricum acidum 30 thrice daily in the same fashion.

If improvement is noted, but is not complete, it is best to contact a homeopath for an in person or phone appointment. Homeopathy has the ability to address even the most severe cases of mouth disease. It is safe, gentle, effective and carries no side effects. The next time your mouth speaks of illness, consider homeopathy; the world accepted medicine worth spreading the word about.
