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

Arsenicum 200C

  • 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.

  • 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

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

Apis ~like a bee sting

Apis 200C is a brilliant remedy to have in your home.  It is incredibly useful for challenges such as:

  • swelling – allergic reactions, bug bites,  pregnancy induced or emotional responses to crying – especially of the face and eyes
  • jealousy – PMS time & PREGNANCY is the PEAK!
  • hives – from allergic reactions, stress, upset, heat
  • eruptions with swelling, heat and itch
  • right-sided affections
  • bug bites of any kind (including bee stings) that swell, turn red, itch and sting.
  • hives with asthma
  • clumsy during PMS
  • chatty, busy and industrious
  • warm-blooded – better from application of cool water
  • no thirst
  • edema in pregnancy, especially in the immediate postpartum – any location in the body.  Will cause the woman to sweat and pee the excess fluid away.

To complement Apis 200C use Nat mur 6X tissue salts.  This will encourage the restoration of the water/salt balance in the body.
