Homeopathy for bug bites and stings

Homeopathic Remedies for Bug Bites and Stings

For most of us, July means more time outdoors.  And whether you're camping, hiking, fishing or simply spending time in the backyard, it's prime season for bug bites and stings.  I was reminded of this just the other night when my 6 year old daughter was stung under the ear on her cheek.  Fortunately, the story ends very well.  An oral dose of Apis, and one application of Hyland's Bug Bite Ointment stopped the tears instantly, and reduced the redness and stinging pain in short order.  While Apis and Bug Bite Ointment saved our evening, there are several homeopathic remedies to help with insect bites and stings.

For more insight we call on details from the book, The American Institute of Homeopathy Handbook for Parents, by Edward Shalts, MD, DHt.

Trouble Sleeping

March 11, 2014 5:24:19 PM EDT

Trouble Sleeping, or is it all in your head? 

Daylight savings time is a reminder that even just one hour of sleep can make a huge difference for many of us.  While experts say it only takes about a day to adjust to one hour in time change, for some it takes longer.  The truth is that trouble sleeping in America is widespread, with far more complex causes than a simple time change.  In fact, the Center for Disease Control describes "insufficient sleep" as a "public health epidemic.  Recent health news articles advise that insufficient sleep can lead to other health problems, including more serious ones.  While the known causes for our trouble sleeping are numerous, new research from Johns Hopkins University suggests that the problem may be in our heads, quite literally.  The study found that the brains of people with trouble sleeping have more adaptable structures and more excitable neurons.  This quick and constant processing of information may be one of the reasons why people cannot sleep.

Homeopathic Sore Throat Remedies and Sore Throat Symptoms

Here in the northern hemisphere, we're deep into some of the coldest temperatures winter has to throw at us.  Ultra cold usually means more time spent inside where we're closer together and that means more chance to catch colds and viruses.  Colds often start with sore throat symptoms and this is the best time to treat a cold with homeopathy.  A good homeopathic remedy selection at this stage can profoundly impact the duration of the cold, sometimes driving it out all together and at other times, moving you into and out of subsequent phases of the cold more quickly.  Here are a few homeopathic remedy suggestions for sore throat symptoms.  Remember, the sooner you catch it the better!

Cold weather joint pain

November 7, 2013 11:45:55 AM EST

Homeopathic relief from cold weather joint pain symptoms

If you're reading this, chances are you, or someone you know has experienced an increase in joint or muscle pain when the weather changes.  It's also likely that the person experiencing the pain is over 40.  While many complain of arthritis flaring up or joint pain when it rains, it's also true that joint pain can increase when the weather turns cold.  Turns out this relationship between cold weather and joint pain is more than an "old wive's tale."  There is mounting scientific evidence to support the notion.  How?  Cold weather can shrink tissue causing it to pull on nerves and cause pain.  And as we age our connective tissue can become less elastic, suggesting that the older we get, the more we notice it.

7 important "single" homeopathic remedies for coughs

One thing about homeopathy and single homeopathic remedies - they work best when applied based on an individual's symptoms.  So as cold season bares down on us, in homeopathy it's more important to focus on the "cough" rather than the "cold."  Unless of course, you don't have a cough, then you would look at sinus or other key symptoms.  But usually with colds, it's the cough that is the key indicator.  There are many types of coughs and unique sub-sets of symptoms associated with those coughs.  While this list is not comprehensive, it highlights 7 important single homeopathic remedies.  Each one addresses a unique type of cough and set of symptoms that may accompany that cough.
