Homeopathic Remedies and Tips for some Common Ailments  

                                                                             by Janice Kumar

Over the years, I have experimented with many homeopathic remedies for common ailments and have found a few to be very effective. In this short article with Homeopathic Tips, I will give some specific remedies for specific problems. They may or may not work for your particular symptoms, but have in general,  been found to be very effective with most people.

As many, already know, homeopathy works on the basis of symptoms of the problem. The remedy is matched to a particular set of symptoms and is taken in correct potency to be effective. There are many resources on the net and various books that will give detailed symptoms and remedy matching. However for the purpose of this article, I will cut through all the ‘confusion’ that is inadvertently created by these many various practitioners and give some simple cures.

Homeopathy is considered safe and US FDA does not even consider the remedies to be medicines, because of the very minute amount of actual remedy present in a specific potency. However, there are millions of people who have benefited from remedies which are easy to procure and apply.  I never recommend self medication in cases where doctors advice is necessary and required and these remedies are given with an ‘over the counter’ approach in mind.

A common problem faced by adults and children alike is the Common Cold. Stuffy nose, flowing nose, sniffling and headache symptoms are best treated by Gelsemium Sempervirens. Repeated doses of this remedy in 30 CH potency every 2 hours helps in controlling the symptoms and gives relief.  The remedy can be easily taken for 3-4 days reducing the doses to once every 4 hours after the first day.

Minor Coughs and irritated throats can be treated with Belladonna in potency 30CH.  In case of pain in the throat and/or inflamed tonsils, this remedy can be alternated with Mercurius Solubilis in potency 30CH. This can be alternated every 2 hours till relief is felt.

Many adults and young children face the problem of constipation and / or indigestion. One easy remedy to keep at home for regular use is Nux Vomica in potency 30CH. A few doses taken during the day will help in alleviating symptoms in most cases.

When we suffer from a loose stomach and Diarrhoea, normally there is little recourse but antibiotics. However I suggest before starting strong medication which may have side effects the following homeopathic remedy may be tried. It is very specific for a set of symptoms but the combination of remedies; I am suggesting, will work in most cases. Give one dose of Ipecacuanha 200C and then alternate Arsenic Album 30CH with Podophylum 30CH. If relief is experienced after 4-5 doses, then continue for another 3-4 days in the same sequence.

We also recommend Native Remedies  for natural remedies. They use naturopathy, Ayurvedic and Homeopathic formulations for effective relief.

The above remedies will not work in all cases because Homeopathic treatments are symptom dependent and it is important to go to a trained Homeopath to get the correct matching remedy. However, my practical experience says that they work in most cases. I have found relief in many cases and hope you will also find the information useful.
