Homeopathic Travel Kit

Wondering what to pack for your summer travels?

Here are my top ten suggestions.

How to take these remedies? A dose is always two pellets – despite the label on the container!

Take two and wait, observe and you will know if you need to repeat.  

  • If things settle down, the crying or discomfort stops then two is enough.  
  • If it reduces the intensity but isn’t gone,  then repeat the remedy.  
  • If it does nothing then you have the wrong remedy.

Aconite 1M

  • after a fright
  • sudden fever in the night
  • sudden ear pain in the night
  • ear pain after a windy day
  • injuries to the eye

Apis 200C

  • all bites that create swelling, redness and heat
  • injuries and swelling around the eyes and all mucus membranes
  • allergic reactions – on all levels from anaphylactic shock to topical eruptions

Anacardium 200C

  • poison oak and poison ivy
  • all itchy, blistery rashes and reactions

Arnica 200C

  • bruises and blunt trauma
  • head injuries
  • shock
  • bleeding
  • overuse of muscles

Arsenicum 200C

  • food poisoning and any symptoms that are similar
  • vomiting and diarrhea
  • nausea
  • restless, anxious, fearful of vomiting
  • anxiety about germs and food safety

Belladonna 1M

  • sudden fevers, especially at 3:00
  • heat stroke – red face, glazed eyes, fever
  • headaches – from the sun, pounding and throbbing with flushed face
  • inflammation – ears, eyes, throat, breast etc.
  • onset of symptoms after doing something out of your comfort zone

Calendula ointment

do a small test patch before applying widely.

  • apply Calendula directly onto open wounds
  • sunburn
  • cuts and burns
  • insect bites

will prevent infection and speed healing

Coffea 200C

  • insomnia after a lot of stimulation or excitement
  • unable to shut off the mind after travel
  • jet lag

Hypericum 200C

  • injuries to the spine, head and tailbone
  • injuries to fingers, toes and tongue
  • puncture wounds – animal bites
  • cat scratches

Phosphoric Acid 200C

  • dehydration
  • headaches from dehydration
  • low energy, flat emotionally
  • after loss of fluids – excessive sweating, diarrhea, vomiting and breastfeeding

If your family has constitutional remedies these are always a good idea to include in your travel kit.  If you need guidance or would like to have a consult to find out more about homeopathic first aid or using constiutional remedies please contact me at http://www.pipermartin.com

Homeopathy in Action~

I am going to share a few heartfelt testimonials from women I have worked with over the years so that you can hear from a grassroots perspective how homeopathy can impact your life.

“I believe that homeopathy has kept my children and I both healthy and happy.  I found homeopathy after already delivering my son at the hospital, despite wanting and trying for a home birth.

For my next two pregnancies, I used homeopathy to battle all sorts of pregnancy related issues, from morning sickness, to nasal and sinus congestion, to turning a breech and then a transverse baby.  Homeopathy supported two home births following my son, and both home births were most lovely experiences I could have ever wished for.  With remedies, we were able to make my contractions more effective, relieve back labour, and promote milk supply.  Both my daughters were born in a warm, loving, quiet environment, surrounded by those who loved them and they thrived from the moment they were born.

 three-craws

As my children grow and play, I find we are able to manage when we get sick with ease.  We use homeopathy to help heal bad bumps and bruises more quickly, to turn fevers around more quickly, and to avoid flu like symptoms (sniffles and coughs) from escalating into more serious issues like bacterial infections, such as ear or throat infections.  I believe with homeopathy, my children are vital, strong and healthy!”

Homeopathic Induction

Homeopathic induction is one of the hottest topics on this blog – and for good reason.

  • It works.
  • It is safe.
  • It feels just as if you went into labour on your own.
  • You can avoid the cascade of interventions that often follow a medical induction.
  • You can induce yourself or work with a midwife that has had homeopathic training.
  • Remedies are easy to find and very affordable.

I am here for free guidance if you need it at any point in the process!

you can have it if you want it

Three ways to learn more about how to create an effective homeopathic induction:

  1. Read all the posts about induction on this blog.
  2. Purchase The Homeopathic Guide to a Vibrant Pregnancy – there is an induction section. This e-book costs 20.00.
  3. Register for the Homeopathic Midwife, an online course that teaches you in-depth how to use homeopathy in pregnancy, labour and postpartum.

What if the Postpartum Blues were a good thing?

What if all postpartum feelings were normal?

What if your own self is taking advantage of this gap that opens up when you have a baby?

You are vulnerable, open, aware and alive postpartum.  Doesn’t it make sense that information would be available to you in a new way?

before-alice-got-to-wonderland

Using homeopathy to offer yourself love and support postpartum means the messages will be delivered, not numbed out or pretended away.  Those messages from our own selves can be processed, felt, truly felt and then integrated.

All with a newborn by your side to assist you on keeping your focus on what is vital, alive and forward moving.

Consider this as a possibility.

love

Remedies for the SUN !

bikini-jumpers

Stock up on Belladonna 1M for heat stroke, Phosphoric Acid 200C for dehydration and Nat. mur 200C for headaches and fever blisters from the sun.

Belladonna 1M

this is a remedy for the following symptoms;

  • throbbing headache
  • fever
  • flushed, dark red face
  • dry heat
  • comes on suddenly and intensely (and will leave the same way)
  • radiating heat from head and core
  • glazed eyes
  • thirsty for lemonade
  • symptoms get worse at 3:00 pm – meaning usually the person feels hotter
  • doesn’t want to be moved or touched
  • overexposure to sun or stimulation

2 pellets, wait and observe in a 1:10 time frame.  If the person has been feeling that way for 60 min then within 6 min. you should see a shift.  The individual does not have to have every symptom, but the general themes of heat, redness and intensity should match.

Phosphoric Acid 200C

This is a remedy to treat dehydration or any loss of bodily fluids.  For example, a woman nursing and being in the sun may result in dehydration as there are extra demands on her fluid levels from both her own body and her baby’s body.  A Phosphoric acid picture may also arise from:

  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • blood loss
  • sweating
  • nursing

When a person is in a Phosphoric Acid state they are :

  • emotionally flat, apathetic
  • indifferent, wants to ignore everything happening
  • ailments from grief, emotional turmoil, loss of fluids
  • headache – as if there was a weight pressing on head
  • hair loss
  • craving for fruit, fruit juice and carbonated water.

Natrum Muriaticum 200C and tissue salts

Natrum Muriaticum is a remedy that generally does not prefer to sit out in the sun.  When this natural guidance is not followed then a Nat mur person will have a reaction to an excessive amount of sun.

  • cold sores with or after sunburn
  • headaches from the sun, must wear hat and dark glasses
  • extremely thirsty for cold water
  • nat mur tissue salts are helpful to restore the water/salt balance after dehydration.
