There are definitely more than 10 “can’t live without” Natural Care Products.
The list in this blog post is for times when you feel like you are coming down with something, or perhaps definitely came down with something. More often than not, I prefer to use homeopathy to help acute illnesses, but sometimes it is hard to get to a remedy, it is the middle of the night and you don’t know what to take or you don’t have the remedy on hand.
I would also add that going to a chiropractor when you are feeling you are getting sick is also on my must do list. But it is hard to keep a chiropractor in your medicine cabinet…. Did you know your white blood cells become more active with each adjustment?
13. Your Constitutional Remedy in a 30C
Your constitutional remedy is the remedy given to you by a professional classical homeopath to help heal your chronic
condition. If you are feeling like you are coming down with something but don’t really have any specific symptoms, having your constitutional/chronic remedy in a 30C can be of great assistance. You only know your constitutional remedy after having a series of appointments with a classical homeopath. One of the nice things about a constitutional remedy is that you get sick less often. But, nothing is perfect and people on homeopathy do get sick occasionally. So a dose or two of your remedy in 30C for a couple of days may be the ticket to get you back on track. If you don’t know your constitutional remedy, click here to schedule an appointment with a classical homeopath.
14. Zinc Lozenges
If you feel a sore throat coming on, and especially if you know strep is going around, reach for a Zinc Lozenge. Zinc is bacteriostatic which means that it prevents bacteria from replicating. It is a handy way to keep the bacteria at bay to give your body some time to kill off the bacteria that may be colonizing in the back of your throat. You must suck on the lozenge. Don’t chew it. There are many brands and flavors of Zinc Lozenges, so read and follow the directions carefully. It is possible to take too much zinc. Know what is in your multi-vitamin.
There are also many sore throat remedies in the Homeopathic Materia Medica, so don’t stop there. Call a Classical Homeopath to get additional help. If sore throats or recurring strep are a problem for you click here to schedule an appointment with a classical homeopath to get a constitutional remedy.
15. Saccharomyces boulardii
Do you feel a bit of digestive distress coming on? Perhaps you ate something that was a few days past its expiration date?
Or maybe you are traveling and you aren’t used to the local food and beverages? Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic which helps rid the body of the little critters that may be inhabiting your GI tract. It is available everywhere you can get vitamins and supplements. It is extremely popular in the early part of the year as people are preparing to travel somewhere warm. Take one capsule twice a day, weaning down to once a day until you feel you don’t need it anymore. Of course, a good probiotic should be taken daily, and this one may appear in your daily probiotic. Getting it as a single organism is great for those times when no matter how many times you wash your hands, you just can’t avoid the Norwalk virus.
A good homeopathic remedy, such as was described in Part one of this series, can also help and should be included in your get-well scheme.
For local folks, I have $5.00 off coupons for the Vitamin Shoppe if you wish to pick some of this up to have on hand. Call and then stop by.
