Homeopathy

Homeopathy can be very helpful when there is a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, a tornado, an earthquake, flooding, and fires. The person may be experiencing fright, panic, injury, shock, loss of loved ones, loss of a home and more.

It is looking at the disaster as an acute situation, and addressing the person for what they are experiencing now from the disaster. The disaster may  exasperate someone’s present health concerns, or be a trigger for a health concern that develops later. Often people say, I was never well since this happened, or these symptoms started when my house burned down, for example. Homeopathy is helpful for right when the disaster is occurring, and for later on. For later on, I would suggest seeing a homeopath. And if you help yourself now, you maybe helping yourself to not develop something in the future.

Some Homeopathic Remedies

Here are a few homeopathic remedies that are helpful when the person is going through the disaster. The reaction can be emotional or a first aid injury. I have given a short description for each homeopathic remedy. Observe how you or your loved one feel, and match it to the description. I have given remedies for trauma, anxiousness, sprains, and digestive issues. This information applies to one’s pets too. If you don’t see anything that is helpful, you may want to google what is bothering you and homeopathy, if you have access to a computer.

  • ACONITE – feeling very fearful, anxious and panicky after the shock and occurrence of the disaster, or during the disaster. Cannot calm down. Feels terrified and restless. May have particular fear of death, and even predicting that they will die. Sleep is restless, tossing and turning, waking up feeling very fearful. Symptoms come on suddenly.
  • ARNICA MONTANA – for body injury, shock from an injury, or just shock from the trauma of the disaster. Person feels sore, bruised, and will say “I am fine”, even though they are not. They don’t like to be touched.
  • IGNATIA – grief from loss: loss of home, possessions, loved ones. Crying or whimpering in sleep. Frequent sighing and yawning, while awake.
  • RHUS TOX – sprain and strain after heavy physical work, when the person has not limbered up. Pains are worse when beginning to move, feels better once moving, like a “rusty gate”. Acts on torn ligaments and tendons. Use after ARNICA. Joint is hot, swollen and painful.
  • RUTA GRAV – use if Rhus tox fails. Torn and wrenched tendons or ligaments. Bruised periosteum (bone covering). Especially good for stiff, sore wrists, ankles, or knees. Dislocation of joints, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder. Use after ARNICA.
  • ARSENICUM ALBUM – food poisoning, after eating bad fruit, fish or meat. Worse at night with much tossing and turning. May have vomiting and diarrhea at the same time. Chilly, restless, anxious. Weak. Feeling of panic – “will I live?” Needs some reassurance, yet not easily reassured. Thirsty for sips of water or warm drinks.
  • NUX VOMICA – wants to vomit, but cannot. Chilly and intensely irritable.  Overeating. And over use of food, liquor, work.

Using Homeopathic Remedies

A 30C or 200C potency would be good. Use what you have available – 6C, 12C, 12X, 30X.

obesity and homeopathy .

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, and/or body water. Both terms mean that a person’s weight is greater than what’s considered healthy for his or her height.
Obesity occurs over time when you eat more calories than you use. The balance between calories-in and calories-out differs for each person. Factors that might affect your weight include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods, and not being physically active.Being obese increases your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and some cancers. If you are obese, losing even 5 to 10 percent of your weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases. For example, that means losing 10 to 20 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds.
Obesity is typically evaluated by measuring BMI (Body mass index), waist circumference and risk factor evaluation.
The best way to avoid these health problems is to maintain a healthy weight. And the keys to healthy weight are regular exercise and good eating habits.
To stay active, try to exercise 30 to 60 minutes every day. Your exercise doesn’t have to be hard. Walking, swimming, and stretching are all good ways to burn calories and can help you stay fit. Try these activities to get moving:
Go outside for a walk.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
Walk or bike to places (such as school or a friend’s house) instead of driving.
If you have to drive somewhere, park farther away than you need to and walk the extra distance.
Tackle those household chores, such as vacuuming, washing the car, or cleaning the bathroom – they all burn calories.
Alternate activities so you don’t get bored: Try running, biking, skating.
Limit your time watching TV or playing video games; even reading a book burns more energy.
Go dancing — it can burn more than 300 calories an hour!
Eating well doesn’t mean dieting over and over again to lose a few pounds. Instead, try to make healthy choices every day.
Soft drinks, fruit juices, and sports drinks are loaded with sugar; drink fat-free or low-fat milk or water instead.
Eat ample amount of fruit and vegetables every day.
Eat a healthy breakfast every day.
Don’t eat meals or snacks while watching TV because you’ll probably end up eating more than you intend to.
Pay attention to the portion sizes of what you eat.
If you want a snack, try carrot sticks, a piece of fruit, or a piece of whole-grain toast instead of processed foods like chips and crackers, which can be loaded with fat and calories.
Eat when you’re hungry, not when you’re bored or because you can’t think of anything else to do.
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. This means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The Homeopathic medicine for weight loss are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions.IMG_0367

REASONS YOUR MAN IS WEAK IN BED.

A lot of women have issues in their marriages because the sex department has gone down the drain and this has led to many women being sexually frustrated.

Sex is an important part of a couple’s life, and when it goes wrong, it could gradually affect other parts of the relationship.

These are some possible reasons why your man is weak in bed.

1. STRESS

When stressed, the body releases adrenaline and cortisol which can result in a low sex drive. In response to stress, the arteries can also restrict blood flow, which can lead to erectile dysfunction.

2. LACK OF SLEEP 

Sleep is highly important, and is especially good for a man’s sex life. A good sleep would lead to a healthy body and mind; sleep provides the opportunity to refresh your body system. A lack of sleep can trigger an elevated cortisol levels, which would lead to poor sex drive.

3. ALCOHOL USE AND DRUG ABUSE 

Excessive alcohol intake can also impair a man’s sexual drive. Too much alcohol intake can impair his nervous system, leading to fatigue, which would make it more difficult for him to maintain an erection during sex.

Marijuana and other drugs can also affect a man’s sex drive; they can suppress the pituitary gland which regulates the production of testosterone.

4. LOW SELF-ESTEEM

When a man isn’t feeling confident or capable, this can affect his performance. When a man doesn’t feel good about his body, his organ or himself, he would definitely have a poor time in bed.

5. ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

Erectile dysfunction is another huge factor for poor performance in men. It is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sexual intercourse.

Having erection trouble occasionally isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, but when it keeps coming then it could be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment.

6. DEPRESSION

There is a definite link between libido and depression. When a man is feeling depressed, he would definitely find it difficult to get excited for sex; it would be almost impossible to get him aroused.

Do you think your man is weak in bed? These might just be some of the possible reasons why.

homeopathy for cough

In homeopathy and especially in working with homeopathic single remedies, selection based on an individual’s specific symptoms is critical to success.  Colds frustrate selection in that symptoms constantly change as the condition matures. One important element to examine is the cough. The character of your cough can make a definable difference in homeopathic remedy comparisons. Does it force you up at night? Is it dry or wet, rattling or wheezing, or constantly changing? Does the mucus stay down, gag you or come up easily? Does heat, cold, motion or lying down aggravate it?

The number of remedies indicated for coughs is seemingly endless. However, some stand out as suitable for common coughs and as good examples for what to look for in defining your cough.

Here are seven.  Each one addresses a unique type of cough and set of symptoms that may accompany that cough..

Pulsatilla: Wearying night cough that forces the cougher to sit up and hold the ribcage.  The cough tends to be dry, shaky and frustrating in the evening and at night– forcing you to sit up over and over again. In the morning, it starts out dry and very fitful with retching, but as the congestion matures the thick mucus loosens toward morning. The coughing spells worsen the dry sore throat and cause soreness in the chest. Related cold symptoms include sticky eye irritation, nose is stuffy at night and runny in the morning, minor fevers are chilling, mucus is bland thick and greenish and like everything Pulsatilla, symptoms are very changeable. Specific people are most apt to need Pulsatilla. They tend to be ‘soft, gentle, mild, affectionate, as well as clingy, weepy, moody, sometimes childish’ with a deep need for security and ever changing moods and symptoms.

Nux vomica: A suffocating cough highlights a restless cold or flu with extreme chilliness.  

The cough is dry, tight and hacking. It oppresses breathing and causes a bruised soreness and often a bursting headache. Cough and other symptoms typically induce Nux’s trademark irritability and sensitivity to light, noise, etc. Symptoms feel worse in the morning (possibly starting at 3a.m.) and in cold dry atmosphere. A finished nap and damp weather tend to lessen symptoms a bit. Extreme chilliness makes drafts unbearable.  The cold may also have hot irritating mucus that blocks the nose at night and a rough sore throat that sends pain toward the ears on trying to swallow the lump in your throat. On the emotional side, typical adjectives for Nux individuals or states include: competitive, impatient, impulsive, ambitious, aggressive, fastidious, restless.  Stress from excess is an important keynote, whether brought on by too much work, food, fun or spirits.

Kali bich: Stubborn, gagging cough.  Thick, ropy, yellow to green, sticky, stringy, stubborn, smelly mucus is at the heart of what this remedy can treat. The cough is stubborn, gagging, hacking misery as you try to clear the thick mucus out of your throat. Mucus crusts up in the nose and fills the sinuses causing choking post nasal drip, hoarseness and pain especially at the root of the nose. The cough often starts very dry but over time becomes more productive especially after a walk in fresh air. When mucus accumulates overnight, morning becomes a torment of blocked nasal passages with stubborn hacking, hawking, gagging and coughing. Heat, but not hot weather, can help, but beer and morning are highly aggravating.

Phosphorus: A hard, dry, tight, racking cough set off by a tickle in the aching raw throat.  The colds Phosphorus treats best move quickly into the chest. The cough may set the body trembling and cause labored breathing and tightness across the chest. Cold air, talking and physical exertion trigger bouts of coughing. A key trait to its fever is great thirst for cold drinks that are vomited soon after warming in the stomach. Hoarseness usually results from these colds, but it also helps hoarseness from overuse, especially in singers. Phosphorus can do the most for excitable, impressionable often lively individuals who burn the candle at both ends until the energy runs out; then sadness, anger and even indifference can dominate.

Bryonia: A dry, hacking, painful cough with stitching pains– worse for movement. Bryonia relieves ailments that approach slowly, linger too long, are worse for movement and may result from being chilled when overheated or from fast weather changes. Its slow moving flu and colds are marked by dryness and body-aching misery. Dry hacking cough causes pain in the sternum and forces you to sit up especially at night. Hawking will eventually move the mucus. Eating and drinking aggravate cough as will going into a warm room. Other symptoms include a bone-aching, chill-ridden fever, great thirst for cold water, dry throat and a “don’t touch me, leave me alone” irritability.

Hepar Sulph: A dry or rattling cough with chilliness.  Chilliness and yellow phlegm also dominate this cold and there may be sinus pressure with splinter-like sore throats.  Cold dry wind, walking, even exposure of any body part from under the covers can provoke this changing cough that runs from a barking dry hoarse cough to loose, rattling/choking coughing. The individuals needing Hepar sulph most lack internal heat, are easily offended, and get are sensitive to rudeness or causes. They may become quite sad and highly irritable, especially at night. Though not highly active, they may speak, eat and act out quickly and impulsively. In general, if highly sensitive to cold, pain, and touch, you might want to examine Hepar sulph, especially if cold air feels threatening.

Natrum mur: A dry tickling cough.  Dryness underlies many of Nat mur’s applications. Its colds and congestions have a dry rawness with thickening clear to whitish mucus. Coughing is dry with rattling in the chest set off by a tickling the the throat. It can be particularly bad in the morning and very fitful at night in bed. Cough often triggers a frontal headache that feels as if the forehead would burst. On the emotional plane, the dryness becomes idiomatic as Nat mur applies to poorly circulated stress– suppressed grief, humiliation and heartbreaks. Sadness, irritability, anger, occasional sleeplessness and haunting memories tend to dominate.  Complaints tend to improve with open air, deep breathing and tight clothing, and worsen with consolation, more emotion, hormonal fluctuations and sunlight (especially headaches). A deep crack in the lower lip and a desire for salty foods further indicate a need for Nat mur.

We hope this helps you get to know your coughs better.
