Homeopathic Remedies for Allergies

It seems that this time of year we all feel the joy of the renewal of nature, the warming of the earth and…AACHOO…the trigger of pollen in the air.

Homeopathic Allergy Remedies

Here are some helpful, readily available remedies to try to hay fever relief.

 

Allium cepa (Red onion):  If your symptoms include sneezing with burning, runny nose, burning, tearful, red-rimmed eyes, as if you’d just peeled an onion, this is a good starting point.

Euphrasia officinalis (Eyebright): If you tend towards conjunctivitis (inflammation of the eye and eyelids with weeping, or thick discharges), this may be the remedy for you. It also helps with headaches from the stuffiness.  There is so much nasal discharge, there is a complaint of “I feel like I’m drowning” that would indicate this as a good remedy.

Sabadilla (Cevadilla seed):  When your eyelids are red and burn terribly, with spasms of sneezing, and copious watery nasal discharge, even a touch of a wheeze, Sabadilla may bring relief.

Nux Vomica (Colubrina): Where there are paroxysms of sneeze after sneeze, with stuffiness that changes sides as you roll over at night, from left to right, reach for Nux vomica (this applies to colds with those symptoms, as well).  Nux can help with any symptom where you feel you “want to but can’t” – so “if I could just blow my nose, I’d feel better,” for instance. With nux the eyes may be bloodshot, and there may be itching of the ears as an indicator symptom. It also helps with the wheezing that may accompany allergies.

Tired of fighting allergies every year?

Long-term detoxification may end your misery!

While certainly things are pollinating as we all look forward to floral festivals, it may not just be a matter of pollen. In Houston, we breathe up to five times more mercury in our air than almost any other city in the United States. Other areas of the country also have high levels of mercury in the air from petroleum or chemical refineries and generalized air pollution carries other heavy metals. What does that have to do with allergies?  A great deal actually.

In the homeopathic materia medica the symptoms that are brought on by the substance mercurius vivus (quicksilver, or pure mercury) include, but are not limited to, “eyes: burning acrid discharge, nose: sinusitis and colds, coryza (runny nose) with sneezing; frequent sneezing; yellow, green, fetid, possible glue-like discharges; mucous membranes: inflamed, irritated; thick yellow nasal discharge,” all commonly found symptoms in many seasonal allergies.

Common sources of mercury toxicity, which can lead into allergies, can be mercury amalgam or “silver” dental fillings, batteries, broken CFC or fluorescent light bulbs, and air pollution from factories, refineries or chemical plants.  While thimerosal, a common vaccine ingredient, has been removed from some childhood vaccines, many vaccines such as the flu vaccine, still contain high levels of mercury.

There are different ways to try to detoxify this heavy metal, but one of the most efficient, and gentle approaches is through the Houston Homeopathy Method of sequential homeopathy.  We have had many people come to us over the years with chronic sinus issues, such as hay fever, eye irritation, and other common symptoms of allergy reactions. While we work to desensitize the system to the known pollen allergens, while simultaneously supporting the detoxification exit routes, we can usually get tangible relief through reduction of inflammation and the histamine reaction.  Many of our clients have been able to get off of their allergy medications, allergy shots, sinus medications, even steroids which had been used, often for many years to “manage their symptoms.” As we have said before in these articles, symptom management is not the same as true health.

If you or someone you love has been plagued with chronic allergies, sinusitis, or other common sensitivities, homeopathic detoxification and sensitivity reduction through the Houston Homeopathy Method might offer solutions without drugs and their side effects, without expensive testing, through gentle homeopathic detoxification and desensitization.

For the longer term detox, consider the Houston Homeopathy Method.  If you’re not certain you’re ready for it, you can start with the DIY+ program, and switch at any time, with a discounted initial consultation for being a DIY+ client!

Pregnancy-safe Cold & Flu Remedies

Homeopathy offers literally thousands of pregnancy-safe cold and flu remedies, as well as literally thousands of other acute and chronic symptoms.I wish someone had told me about homeopathy when I was pregnant and had a cold! Even though I was hardly the internet-educated, supre-crunchy mom of today, my gut told me that taking drugs while pregnant was something I should avoid, for the sake of my baby.  Here are tips that may help avoid drugs, but also give symptom relief.

Colds:  Over-the-counter combinations are wonderful. My personal favorite is Boiron’s Cold Calm®.  It can be purchased at many health food stores, and if you can’t find it anywhere else, our office keeps it on hand for our clients.

Coughs:  While there are many individual remedies that are great for coughs, there are several OTC combination remedies that we love.  Boiron’s Chestal® and B&T’s Bronchial Cough Formula® are two of my favorite cough syrups.  Again, they’re readily available OTC.

Flu:  The best remedy in the world for flu, in my humble opinion, is Oscillococcinum.  We’ve even personally found that it may well be helpful with other viral illnesses, as an early-onset immune booster.  Whenever I fly it seems I land next to someone who is obviously ill.  So I start popping my Oscillococcinum® and most of the time I find that I stay healthy.

Stomach “flu”:  Again, I suggest Oscillococcinum, along with homeopathic remedies specific to such illnesses.  For instance, Arsenicum album is excellent for stomach and abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea.  It is my go-to remedy for “food poisoning” as well.  It typically knocks the symptoms out very quickly, and has no side-effects of its own.

Of course, there are other remedies that are great for the nausea associated with early pregnancy, such as “morning sickness” (even when it lasts all day long), such as Cocculus.

Fever: two of the best remedies for fevers are homeopathic Ferrum phosphoricum Belladonna.

Homeopathy is safe medicine

Even though Belladonna is a toxic plant, when rendered in the diluted homeopathic form, any toxin becomes a remedy for the same symptoms the toxin would bring on.  And virtually all homeopathic remedies are non-toxic by their very nature.

If you are pregnant and need homeopathic help, we LOVE working with moms-to-be.  We can also help you do a safe detoxification before, or even during, pregnancy.    We can also help with allergy symptoms, almost any new or chronic illness during pregnancy, and can help you stay healthy or get healthy while pregnant, safely.

Of course, if you have any doubts about taking any homeopathic remedies during pregnancy, call us. We can help you find remedies that are safe and effective for whatever might come up during this wonderful time of life, all without side effects!

Call us today.  We’re here for you. And CONGRATULATIONS!

Homeopathic Detoxification

Homeopathic detoxification may be the most important thing you can do for your health. We cannot over-emphasize the importance of detoxification to the average human being. General and specific homeopathic detoxification is safe, thorough and gentle. The Houston Homeopathy Method is a super-individualized detox method for anyone.

Homeopathic Detoxification is for Everyone

Why? Because we are all bombarded daily by toxins in our air, water, food, on surfaces all around us. These toxins can build up in the system and, over time, can create an entire set of symptoms of their own.

Every day the subject of detoxification is our first priority at Homeopathy Center of Houston.   The Houston Homeopathic Method can provide a deeply individualized systematic detoxification approach for health and well-being for virtually anyone.  Whether you have no symptoms, or as a part of remediation of health ills and problems, our homeopathic detoxification can be the basis to stay healthy as well as to improve the overall quality of life.

We start with generalized support of the organs and systems of elimination, opening up the exit routes.  This alone may result in improvement for all sorts of health challenges.

Then, as we see improvements such as better digestion and elimination, we can move to more specific, individualized detoxification through homeopathic isopathic remedies, or “isodes.” These are specific highly diluted remedies from the very substances that a person has been exposed to in his/her history. By using isodes, it is possible to homeopathically nudge the body to release cellular residues from chemical exposures, such as pesticides, petroleum products, drugs taken in the past, and contaminants from the air, food and water.

Daily Contamination Demands Daily Homeopathic Detoxification

We are all exposed to unknown and often unacknowledged chemicals on a daily basis.  Our world has had over 80,000 new chemicals unleashed since World War II. Many are derivatives of petroleum, the basis of everything from “miracle drugs” to pesticides, herbicides, and common household products of all sorts. Many people are highly reactive to these chemicals.  We have had clients observe that homeopathic detoxification helped reduce this immediate reactivity.

After WWII, American troops liberating German concentration camps found barrels of a new chemical called “fluoride” sitting all around.  When the German officers were asked what it was used for, they stated “it keeps the prisoners docile and controllable.”   Most municipal drinking water systems add fluoride to the water.

The military openly admits to spraying heavy metal nano-particles from airplanes in order to extend the reach of radar over the horizon.  What do you think happens to them? Perhaps that is why so many people now suffer from heavy metal toxicity.  Homeopathic detoxification can help eliminate them.

Ever think about your food growing all over the world and what lands on it?   And what about our drinking water reservoirs?   If you live in an urban area like Houston, the municipal government sprays chemical pesticides as often as several nights per week to control mosquitoes!  The residue can easily enter the home on feet, pets or simply through opening and closing doors and windows.

Homeopathic detoxification is good for you – even if you’re healthy NOW.

We all need cleansing from today’s world. Toxins may be a part of life, but it’s not living if one is becoming ill from the world’s toxins!

Science proves that toxins build up in the system. The body can eliminate food very efficiently. But chemicals are foreign to the built-in healing and elimination systems.  They cannot naturally be broken down, metabolized and eliminated.

This is where the Houston Homeopathy Method shines: homeopathic detoxification is safe.  Many detoxification methods depend upon adding chemicals into the system (such as chelation drugs) in the hopes of “capturing” and eliminating toxins.  Homeopathic detoxification merely inputs the “signature” of the offending toxins so that the body can identify and eliminate them. Because homeopathic detoxification adds no actual chemicals (the remedies are too dilute to contain any actual molecules), there are no side-effects, no dangers, just gentle elimination by the body’s own mechanisms.

It does take a professional trained in our method, and in both classical and sequential homeopathy.  Please “don’t try this at home!” There is a definite order that makes the process gentler through our method. While the remedies cannot cause any permanent harm, this level of deep homeopathic detoxification can bring on some elimination symptoms that may catch people by surprise. Our well-versed, experienced practitioners can give you a heads up on what to expect during the process each month.

Some Results of Homeopathic Detoxification

Clients report improvements in digestion, elimination, skin tone and quality, overall relief of aches and pains, and generally improved energy levels just from detoxification. A few clients have shed some unwanted pounds. Science demonstrates that often our cells maintain excess water to dilute toxins. There are innumerable reasons to undertake homeopathic detoxification.  The best reason is because you deserve to feel and look healthier.

No one can guarantee specific health outcomes.  But when someone undertakes homeopathic detoxification, they will be less toxic than when they started.

Our professionals have been successfully helping people gain improvements in their health since 1998, often completely eliminating problems that have plagued them for decades. You CAN get healthy, or stay healthy simply through homeopathic detoxification with the Houston Homeopathy Method.  Call us today.  We can help.

Homeopathy can give urinary tract relief!

4 Go-to Homeopathic Remedies for Urinary Tract Relief

We’re launching into some “potty talk” today to give you urinary tract relief!  You know the feeling – that odd sensation something isn’t quite right “down there.” Then the urging, the pain, and you know you’ve got the dreaded UTI. Here are the most commonly needed homeopathic remedies for urinary tract relief.  Remember, the real trick to using homeopathy is to match the most symptoms with the best remedy that will relieve those symptoms.  Before you read any farther, go get a HUGE glass of water and start pounding water while you read! Water intake is crucial for urinary problems.

And of course, if your symptoms are chronic, if they worsen, or you have extenuating circumstances such as kidney transplant or diabetes, you should consult a healthcare professional, such as a homeopath or naturopath and consult your doctor before undertaking any new approaches.

Match the Symptoms to the Remedy

Remember, with homeopathy, you need to match the symptoms as closely as possible to the remedy that helps those symptoms in your specific combination. Little things matter, like when, where, how it hurts, what makes it better or worse, even urine odor and color. Following are some of the basic remedies and the symptoms they work best to relieve.

When you think “burning,” think Cantharis (blister bug).  For burning urination, burning pain that is worse after emptying the bladder, with the pain focused in the urethra, rather than the bladder,  itching and burning together in the urethra, or if the urine feels hot during urination, and looks cloudy, or if there is very little urine each time with constant but useless urging followed by just a few drops of urine – Cantharis is perhaps one of the most widely applicable urinary tract remedies, because there are so many different symptoms that indicate it that are very common to urinary complaints. The urging may be constant, with only scant urine which is only briefly relieved afterwards. IMPORTANT KEYNOTE that indicates the need for Cantharis: When you are so frantic you can’t think of anything but the pain, it’s time for Cantharis.

If there is stinging pain, the urine feels very hot, and is milky looking with an offensive odor, and if there is very little urine each time – homeopathic Apis melifica 6x (honey bee) is one of the best remedies, and can almost always be found in health food stores.  It’s also a great one to have around for bee stings! But that’s for another article.

Did you suppress anger at someone, or have an invasive procedure just before the onset?  Then you need Staphysagria (stavesacre) – which will help with both the UTI and allow you to express the anger, let go of the grudge and move on!

Staphysagria is a great homeopathic remedy for urinary tract relief.

Staphysagria is a great homeopathic remedy for the urinary tract.

Because it can also help with the low back ache from UTIs, either from referred pain or because the kidneys are also inflamed, Staphysagria can be taken to help keep things under control while you wait to get in with a doctor or professional homeopath.  Staphysagria is known in homeopathy as the best “honeymoon cystitis” remedy. We also find it helpful with UTIs that occur shortly after childbirth, colonoscopy or cystoscopy procedures.

Our final “go-to” remedy is EquisetumEquisetum is almost a specific for having a therapeutic action on all portions of the urinary tract.  It is called for where there is severe, but dull pain that is not relieved by urination.  There is often constant urging, and while large quantities of urine may be passed (in contrast to Cantharis or Apis, above), there is no pain relief from it. The urine is typically either clear or light-colored, but profuse in quantity.  A bonus hint:  Equisetum can also a good remedy for bedwetting in children, even older children.

In parting, here are some other self-help items that are compatible with homeopathy for the urinary tract.  First and foremost, drink lots of water.  Also, adding the juice of 1/4 to one entire lemon to water, or warm water is soothing, but also adds vitamin C which has known anti-bacterial qualities, and lemon juice is alkalizing, making your urinary tract less welcoming to bacterial invasion. Add a few drops of stevia, to taste, to make it more palatable. You can also take Vitamin C supplements.  And finally, Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus probiotics in general, have been shown to help reduce the recurrence, and can shorten the duration of your attack. And in case we didn’t mention it – DRINK MORE WATER!

We can help if you don’t get Urinary Tract Relief quickly enough.

Remember, these work best with occasional UTIs.  If you frequently or chronically have to seek urinary tract relief, or if any of the above remedies are not helping after a couple of days or you run fever, please give us a call.  We have many additional, harder to find products that can help, but you may need professional homeopathic experience.  WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU!

What The Houston Homeopathy Method Can Help: Published Literature

 

If you are wondering “Can homeopathy help with…?” or, “are there any published studies on homeopathy?”,  thanks to the help of www.GreenMedInfo.com, we have complied an extensive document listing abstracts by the illness, injury or therapeutic diagnosis that has been successfully treated with homeopathy, and published.

 

 

Check through the list – chances are your problem will be listed.  However, keep in mind, while this is not exhaustive – virtually any illness or injury, can be helped by homeopathy, whether published or not. This is only a large sampling of those symptoms or illnesses which have been published.  If you are wondering whether to try homeopathy, just because your specific problem may not be listed, homeopathy can still most likely help with it.  If you are still breathing, homeopathy can be effective in the right hands!

Homeopathy is not limited to physical illness.  It works with symptoms in the physical, mental, emotional and behavioral realms.  It shines in acute, minor contagious illness, and sequential homeopathy offers untold answers to chronic complaints.

 

 

The Houston Homeopathy Method has worked with most of these published issues at one time or another, and more.  The truth is, there are very few things which don’t yield to homeopathic treatment. The Houston Homeopathy Method is especially helpful with chronic illness.  Most chronic illness is an accumulation of multiple insults to the body from life: illnesses, injuries, emotional shocks, physical shocks, chemical exposures (including drugs of all classes, including vaccines).  At some point or another, a “tipping point” is reached whereby a final insult of some sort will push the body quickly in the direction of symptoms.  Those symptoms are the body’s final scream for help. While we may focus upon that “tipping point” we also will attend to other factors leading up to it.

The Houston Homeopathy Method uses a sequential homeopathy unlayering method that comes naturally to the body – we begin with the most recent “layer” of insult, and work chronologically backwards through all the various layers in the history of each person to heal one layer at a time, as deeply as the body is capable of healing it.  Rather than trying to eliminate symptoms temporarily by masking them, homeopathy works to allow the body to see and “copy” the illness, taking it to its final battle and overcoming it – then moving on to the next deeper layer.  Our method follows that generalized pattern through each individual’s timeline history.

 

 

Modern medicine excels in emergency medicine, injury reparation, and saving lives where quick action may be required in order to avoid long-term disability or death.  However, where chronic or repetitive illness exists, allopathic medicine may become a trade-off between temporary relief of immediate symptoms and long-term symptoms created of accumulated side effects.  In many cases of chronic disease, modern medicine can only offer “symptom management” with numerous drugs, requiring additional drugs for additional side effects.

Ideally, homeopathy works to allow the body to fully heal itself, yielding long term health, without long term dependence on continued use of drugs, including homeopathic remedies.

We must also periodically detoxify (which homeopathy excels in doing), as well as paying close attention to our diet. We must try to avoid the toxins in most processed, commonly available food and instead, eat a carefully chosen, toxin-free, chemical-free, organic, whole foods diet with minimal processing – which is what our bodies were designed to live on!

Thanks and credit to Sayer Ji and www.GreenMedInfo.com for a wonderful search tool that has allowed us to compile a document that lists a huge percentage of the published research literature, by therapeutic action, on the positive effects of homeopathy.

Reduce Anxiety, PANDAS and OCD: Read the Label!

This one dietary tip could greatly reduce anxiety, PANDAS or OCD.Child needs to reduce anxiety

Much research has been devoted to the role of streptococcus in anxiety, OCD, and PANDAS/PANS.  From a homeopathic perspective, we are taught nuances of many substances, including pathogens, from our literature.  Even a tiny amount of the wrong substance can greatly hamper the healing responses. If you eliminate just one ingredient from your diet, you may greatly reduce anxiety.

One of the neurological effects of some streptococcus species can include high levels of anxiety, behaviors, and rituals to try to control the anxiety. In our experience, two such unexpected sources can be from probiotics and yogurt.  Who would have thought? Many probiotic combinations contain streptococcus thermophilus (often abbreviated “S. therm.”).  And virtually all commercially produced yogurts and kefir as well as some yogurt starters include this same species.

Reducing your intake of S. therm. may help reduce anxiety, PANDAS and OCD.

When there is a constant influx of any pathogen that the body is already trying to eliminate, it is very difficult for homeopathy’s gentle detoxification to get a sufficient response.  No matter the source, (diet, environment, illness or a vaccine) streptococcus forms may increase anxiety in some people.  We don’t fault the manufacturers for what they are doing. But we have seen remarkable improvements when our clients eliminate this species from their dietary supplements or stop eating commercial yogurt. For some people this may not be a problem. But S. therm. can be anxiety-producing for those who are streptococcus carriers, or exhibit high levels of anxiety or OCD tendencies. We may not be able to reduce anxiety until S. therm. is eliminated from the diet.

read the label to help reduce anxietyIf you still crave yogurt or kefir, several options are available for homemade yogurt starters. There are innumerable probiotic combinations on the market without S. therm.  As with many things in life, you must read the “fine print” on the label in order to avoid these substances. But the payoff may be startlingly helpful at reducing anxiety. Consequently, reading the label may reduce anxiety!

If you’d like to a more permanent answer to reduce your anxiety, the Houston Homeopathy Method offers deeper, longer lasting answers.  Give us a call! We can help.

Tips for Stimmy Kids in Autism

Quick Tips for Stimmy Kids in Autism

If your child’s “stims” have you climbing the walls, here are some tips for Stimmy Kids in Autism to help!

What are stims? The word comes from “self-stimulation” – which actually is a misnomer. Many of the behaviors seen as “stims” or “typical autism behaviors” may have their basis in the child’s environment, or from internal pathogens such as bacteria, viruses or parasites.  Others may be reactions to physical pain or sensations. Houston Homeopathy Method offers help through sequential homeopathy for many of the “stims” by addressing them at the root.  But here are some tips that might help you find some peace through things you can do to improve your child’s diet or environment.

Some so-called “stims” like head-banging are actually a reaction to pain, and in that case, typically it means headache pain or gut pain.  This is always a “red flag” to us that a child is in severe pain, so it is a strong immediate focus of our approach.  Sometimes a strict gluten-free/casein-free diet will greatly improve gut distress and its associated behaviors.

Scratching, biting or intense lashing-out at others, or wrist biting can indicate pain such as reflux or heartburn. We have a number of options for temporary relief, but long term recovery is one of the top ten things we are “famous” for, through sequential homeopathy.

Aggression can be indicative of pain, but can also be driven by reactions to MSG, food colorings, preservatives or other additives in the diet.  A “clean” organic, chemical-free diet is always our recommendation for children with autism or other vaccine injury. And if you can’t pronounce it, probably it’s not healthy for anyone to eat it.

Using organic, human-friendly, non-toxic cleansers at home may help reduce stims and improve attention and social interaction. So check your laundry detergents, shampoos and soaps – and don’t spray that cologne near your autistic child! If you can smell it, or can’t pronounce the ingredients, it could be a culprit. You may be surprised at what can set off a spate of stims, tics, or stims.

Does your child flap his hands wildly or hold them in odd positions in front of his eyes and scream “eeeeeeeeeeee?” When was the last time s/he ate fast food or highly processed foods? Often this behavior is related to excitotoxins such as MSG, artificial food additives, colorings or flavorings. Simply cleaning up the diet often eliminates or greatly reduces such behaviors. It can also be an indicator of overgrowth of parasites of various sorts.

Professional Clean-up Required – Don’t Try This At Home!

The following behaviors help us discern which pathogens might be a problem requiring deeper cleansing through sequential homeopathy.

  • Are the behaviors worse around the full moon or the new moon? Either way, parasites may be behind any generalized behavioral worsening that occurs in a 4-week cycle. Obsession with water play, mud, fecal smearing or saliva play that cannot be redirected easily is another indicator of parasite presence. We have developed a non-toxic, gentle program that has resulted in parasite reduction for hundreds of clients over the past decade. (You might enjoy reading “The Best Full Moon Ever!”)
  • Does s/he climb on furniture, or constantly jump? He may have measles virus surfacing.
  • Does s/he repeat the last phrases of videos or your last conversations? You might want to check for strep titers or possibly clostridia.
  • Is your child’s behavior impossible to redirect? Whatever your child’s “stimmy” behavior, if it’s difficult or impossible to redirect her, we always consider whether or not there is an underlying obsession or compulsion. If so, we consider addressing some bacterial overloads.

Each child’s autism is a unique manifestation of behaviors and what’s behind them. The tips above come from our observations and experience with some of these more common “stims” what is behind them and what has helped them.  In our consults, communications of the parents’ observations of “stims” and other behaviors are greatly helpful in determining why various behaviors are present, and which pathogens are present in the system can be discerned and addressed by the The Houston Homeopathy Method. Since 2002, we have offered the first and only cutting edge sequential homeopathic approach to be based upon the full biomedical model of autism – the Houston Homeopathy Method for Autism. Call us today and we’ll do our best to “de-stim” your “stimmy” child!

Homeopathic Tips for Colds and Allergies

AAAAAACHOOO!

Homeopathic remedies can help with the short-term symptoms of both colds and allergies.  Because we base our remedy choices by matching symptoms to the proper remedy, and colds and allergies often share similar symptoms, it’s possible to gain relief of either without necessarily knowing which it is.

Grab and Go with Combination Remedies

Some wonderful combination homeopathic remedies are available over the counter as well as through our office for cold and allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, stuffiness, mild fever and body aches, sore throat and cough. These combination remedies usually contain a broad enough spectrum of remedies to cover the most common symptoms or combinations of cold, flu, or cough related symptoms to work well as an easy “grab and go” approach.

Homeopathic Tips for Colds and Allergies

“Family Clinic in a Box”

If you wish to try your hand at a few single remedies, here are a couple of our favorites.  These remedies can be purchased over the counter at most health food stores, are included in our custom 50 remedy homeopathic remedy kit (available through our office) and it won’t matter whether your sniffles and snorts are from a cold or allergies, if they match how you feel:

Allium cepa: made from red onion, this remedy can help you when you have all the head cold or allergy symptoms that look just like you’ve peeled an onion! Red rims around the watery, burning eyes, runny, burning, thin nasal discharge, lots of sneezing, and a craving for fresh air characterize the symptoms this stand-by remedy can help.

Euphrasia: for stuffy, congested, packed sinuses with constantly watering eyes, red, swollen and burning  of the upper lip, post-nasal discharges in the morning that are so difficult to hawk up that you sometimes gag, grab Euphrasia.  It’s also great for coughs that are so hard and long you may gag.

Nux vomica: Irritability, impatience, and a general grumpiness coupled with copious sneezing and fevers with a need to be constantly covered mark this remedy.  It also helps with “stomach flu” nausea, hangovers (!) or constipation.  A great all-around remedy to keep on hand.

Pulsatilla: Whine, whine, whine is the stellar attitude in those who need this remedy.  It helps with bland, yellow discharges from the nose, ears or throat, with a dry mouth, but little thirst.  Also great for ear pain from the congestion of a cold.

Still not finding the answer? We’re here to help.

A simple 15-30 minute minor illness consultation and a few remedies from our office may get you back in the pink with simple colds or flu symptoms. If you’d like to be able to call on us immediately during cold and flu season, you can even send in your paperwork for your family early, with a note that you only seek our care on an “as-needed” basis.  And if you’re fed up with allergies, our sequential homeopathy approach can combine detoxification from heavy metals which can be behind many allergies, while offering supportive symptom relief as needed and desensitization remedies for common allergy triggers as well.
