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 […]

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.

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.

Staph Infections

Homeopathic Staphysagria often is used to treat Staph Infections [as are other remedies].

Gifts of the Hive

I have long enjoyed the benefits of raw honey, propolis, and other gifts provided by bees. Though I’ve benefited from Herb Pharm’s throat spray, I recently tried a new one because I hoped it had a sweeter taste my kids would find more palatable.  I’m impressed! I also am impressed by the maker’s smooth lip balm and […]

Topical Homeopathic Treatment

For issues occurring on or near the surface of your body, topical homeopathic treatment can be phenomenal.  They will only work for purely physical issues, though.  If you have an emotional cause for your ailment, a topical won’t help. That said, I’ve seen topicals helpful for a whole range of issues from bumps to nerve […]
