Keynotes of Holiday Stress

Sleep #173The Keynotes of Holiday Stress

While some of us love holiday cheer, others find the holidays to be a very difficult time. Physically, it’s normal that our bodies tend to slow down. The shorter days, bad weather and lack of sunlight contribute to our mental state, but we also feel more emotionally challenged for a variety of reasons. The stress of end of the year deadlines, spending time with relatives, memories of the past and unrealized expectations can all creep into our lives, especially around the holidays.

The Keynotes of Indigestion

A closer look at the keynotes of indigestion

Many people experience indigestion for different reasons. Some of the causes can be severe medical issues, but others may just be behavioral issues, according to the the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.  The Cleveland Clinic also reports that sometimes indigestion is simply caused by people eating too much, too quickly or consuming food that has too much fat. Although people call one of the symptoms of indigestion acid reflux, it is not that the stomach has too much acid, it is that the digestive system is reacting badly to the situation. Some people who experience indigestion feel too full, bloated, nauseous, gassy or even as though they have heartburn.

The Top Homeopathic Keynotes of Fever

October 24, 2014 12:21:10 PM EDT

Themometer showing FeverThe Top Homeopathic Keynotes of Fever

A few weeks ago, we blogged about the “modalities” of joint pain; the concept of a modality being something that makes a person feel better or worse. Many professional homeopaths start with modalities to guide their remedy selection, but others start with something homeopaths call “keynotes”. Keynotes differ from “modalities” in that they represent “key” symptoms associated with a homeopathic remedy. Some homeopaths consider “keynotes” to be “strange, rare and peculiar symptoms that point to a specific remedy”. Some keynotes, however, are quite broad and can point to several remedies. Paul Herscu, ND writes about this in more detail in his article “A Closer Look at Keynotes”.

The Homeopathic Modalities of Joint Pain

For better or worse: The Homeopathic Modalities of Joint Pain

‘Joint Pain’ is a common phrase we use to describe (pause), well, joint pain. It’s simple and straightforward, but it doesn’t really tell the whole story about how you may be feeling, even if you know the pain is in your joints. It’s a great example of how conventional medicine tends to lump us all together, and an even better opportunity to illustrate how homeopathic medicines differ. If you were to click the “Joint Pain” sub-category on our navigation menu under “Pain & First Aid”, you’d get a long list of possible remedies. But which one should you take?

Back To School Stress

Homeopathy Helps Students & Parents Rise to the Occasion

Some kids take tests with no tension at all, some get a bit nervous and tense, while others suffer with tummy aches, restlessness, headaches, nerves, mental dullness and an inability to focus. And this is true for parents too when it comes to meeting deadlines, changing routines and coping with our demanding lifestyles.  Just as some bodies overreact to allergens or toxins, others overreact to stresses like tests, public speaking or performing. The chemical patterns are not that different. Signals get crossed and with the right stimulus, the body can find better solutions.

Spotlight on Mag phos -  #1 single homeopathic remedy this week!

In what might be Scheussler's finest hour, he linked the magnesium in the body to his mineral compound magnesium phosphate. He attributes its success to magnesium's importance in the connection between nerves and muscles. Thus he made us a remedy that is uncanny for relieving symptoms of cramps, spasms and radiating pains. Mag phos is a fast-acting remedy that benefits symptoms as diverse as leg cramps, muscle spasms and tension, menstrual cramps, fitful coughs, colic and hiccups, as well as backache, pain from low back to right thigh, facial pain, tics, toothache, stabbing headaches and weariness. Anytime symptoms improve with heat and worsen with cold, Mag phos makes a wise choice. Sipping hot water with a dose can speed its action.
