Help for a Sprained Ankle

If you have sports in your life, this definitely is one for you!  I sprained my ankle recently, and I healed it rather quickly and easily using mostly homeopathy.  That helped me quickly get back to my full-time responsibilities and, more importantly, living my fullest, highest life. Of course, sharing is what I do, so the […]

Rigid Mucous Cough Relief

One of my most surprising homeopathic learnings this year was of the value of the remedy ipecac for respiratory issues. Unfortunately, I learned of it from my naturopath when my son suddenly had trouble breathing during a bout of croup.  Homeopathic ipecac 30c had him breathing reasonably well by the time we made it to […]

Stiff Chill = Stiff Back?

I discovered this remedy a couple of years ago when my husband’s back froze.  To him, it just plain hurt.  When I asked for Heavenly Help with a remedy, they showed me a stone that was dark on the outside, red in the middle.  Luckily, I recalled that stone from a book, Twelve Jewels:  Gems […]

Painful Ribs Prefer Ranunculus!

Here’s a quick tip–and you know those are rare from me! If you’ve hurt your ribs and are using Arnica without getting the relief to which you are accustomed with homeopathy, try homeopathic Ranunculus.  It tends to work a charm! And thanks to John Melnychuk, who first guided me to it years ago when my […]

The Quick Six: Bites and Stings

The final bit of your Quick Six ensemble would be something to address bites and stings, which in fact is what brought my family to homeopathy in the first place. The Remedies: The most frequently recommended remedies for bites and stings are as follows: Arnica – especially if there is bruising Apis – especially for […]

The Quick Six: Major Injuries

Arnica is probably the best-known and most used of all homeopathic remedies.  I would guess that it is the remedy that most frequently introduces people to homeopathy. And with good reason.  Arnica is kind of the if-I-were-stuck-on-an-island remedy.  So The Quick Six would be incomplete without a higher potency vial of homeopathic Arnica. It is […]

The Quick Six: Cuts and Bumps [My First Aid Combo]

I probably use this more than any other homeopathic, which is why it leads off the Quick Six. It contains remedies to abate swelling, bruising, bleeding, nerve damage, and infection.  It works astoundingly well as a topical, so I keep it in a spray bottle in my purse and around the house. We had been […]

My Personal Energy Therapist [Can Be Yours Too]

For [less than, most likely] the price of one massage [they cost $7-11 ea. and 2-5 pieces will get you far], you can get a lifetime of relief from all kinds of ailments, from stiff or tight muscles to headaches.  These little gems have proven their worth in our house, much to my amazement and complete delight. […]

Staph Infections

Homeopathic Staphysagria often is used to treat Staph Infections [as are other remedies]. We have used it twice in my home–once for my dog’s stye and once for an itchy affection on my ankle diagnosed as a Staph infection.  At the time of my dog’s stye, the vet simply recommended a protocol of a few weekly doses […]

A Good Remedy for Thick Mucous + How to Use Homeopathic Combinations and Syrups

There’s a flu going around just now that responds to Oscillococcinum initially–also if you take a microdose [just a few granules] after exposure and before onset, you can stave it off completely–and then moves into a congestion stage with frontal sinus pain, post-nasal drip, and/or cough. I’m a fan of Kali Iodatum for a lot […]
