At last! Christmas is upon us with an opportunity to soak up some festive fun and cheer – Hooray!
Admittingly, it looks a lot different this year. In the midst of this pandemic, we have the added stresses of missing out on friends and family gatherings, not seeing loved ones, coping with financial stress and trying to be vigilant about our health.
Then we have the usual niggly problems that often arise during the festive season – those that unfortunately won’t just disappear because of Covid-19!
For these type of situations, Homeopathy can help bring rapid relief on a number of levels whether for acute periods of physical discomfort or for emotional distress.
Below I’ve listed my top homeopathic remedies to help ease you through the holidays and I’d recommend stocking up on for Christmas.
Nux Vomica – For symptoms that arise after overindulgence and excess in food, alcohol, tobacco and coffee. The person suffers from headaches, indigestion, nausea and irritability and symptoms are worse in the morning or after eating.
Arsenicum – For symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting, cramps where you suspect food poisoning.
Argentum Nitricum – Anxiety from worry that it won’t work out – What if the turkey burns? What if the electric goes out? What if the gifts don’t arrive on time? There is a great sense of urgency, hurriedness and worrying about everything with sleepless nights of tossing and turning.
Coffea – Sleeplessness from excitement. For the kids who just can’t sleep in anticipation of Santa’s arrival.
Staphysagria – If you are feeling angry and resentful and are suffering in silence, or have difficulty saying no but feel walked over, then this is an excellent remedy to help verbalise things or process your emotions. Pent up emotions can also be accompanied with urinary tract infections where this remedy fits the symptoms.
Aconite – If caught at the early stage, nip those colds in the bud that come on suddenly after exposure to cold dry winds or getting chilled.
Prescribing for first aid situations should be administered in accordance with the laws of homeopathy.
