HOMEOPATHICS THAT HELP
Click the link below and read this information
before using homeopathics..Thanks.
Rescue Remedy is my all time favorite..It helps calm and heal.
Read about it by clicking links below:
Many of the following Hints are compliments of Dr. Victoria Snelling
Get a tip in the mail from her each day by going to:
Dr. Victoria Snelling
Accidents: Take Arnica 30C to soothe the trauma and inflammation that occurs with even "non-injury" car accidents. Continue taking Arnica two or three times a day as long as any discomfort or limitation of movement is present.
Antibiotic Side Effects Loose stools or diarrhea is a fairly common occurrence as a result of antibiotic drug therapy. Homeopathic Arsenicum Album can relieve the symptoms of loose stools as well as any related discomfort. With any antibiotic use, take a good quality acidophilus product to minimize side effects.
Asthma---AND COLD WEATHER ...For asthma brought on or aggravated by cold weather,consider Arsenicum Album. Take one dose of 30C potency...every 10 minutes until relief is obtained.
Back Pain...Homeopathic remedy...tellurium Is great for back pain related to the vertebra.
Bedsores or leg ulcers Bedsores most often occur in those who are bedridden.Waterbeds and the use of egg-crate foam pads are useful in preventing these sores from developing. Use Calendula liquid or cream on the sore itself and take tablets of homeopathic Arnica Montana 4 times a day to assist thehealing process. Medical care is usually indicated.
Blood Pressure---Rescue Remedy
Blood Pressure Dizziness From Low Dizziness that comes on when standing up from a sitting or reclining position is often from low blood pressure, and it is called orthostatic hypotension. Take homeopathic Arnica twice a day for 7-10 days for this condition.
BRACES To prevent pain when you're having dental braces fitted or adjusted, take Arnica 30X before and after the dental appointment. Repeat the remedy if needed.
Breasts----PAINFUL BREAST FEEDING Arnica will relieve breast pain during nursing, especially if Arnica was not given directly after childbirth. The homeopathic remedy Conium will be helpful, especially if the breast pain goes from left side to right side. Take the 30C potency twice a day as needed.
Breast lumps We should all do monthly self-examination of the breast tissue. It's also a good idea to have your health care provider examine the breast tissue once each year. Some breast lumps are benign and cause no problems other than pain before the menstrual period. For this type of lump, take homeopathic Phytolacca once a day. Vitamin E, 800 to 1200 IUs, can also relieve this condition.
Blisters Blisters are bubbles of fluid that form under the skin as a result of friction or burns. Keep the area clean with liquid Calendula tincture, and take Rhus Tox 30X twice a day to relieve the redness, pain and swelling.
Bone Bruise Injuries to the ankle, elbow or other bones that lie near the surface can become bruised. This lingering pain can be relieved first with a dose or two of homeopathic Arnica, and then Ruta Graveolens taken twice daily until the bruise is healed and the pain is gone.
Bone Density This condition of bone density loss has been found not only in older women but also in men and younger women, especially those with a history of anorexia or other conditions involving malnutrition. In addition to exercise and supplemental calcium with boron, take homeopathic Calcarea Phosphorica twice daily to assist bone re-mineralization.
Car Accident After medical evaluation, take homeopathic Arnica Montana after an accident or injury. If stiffness is present after a few days, homeopathic Rhus Toxicodendron and an evaluation from a doctor of chiropractic medicine may be indicated.
Cough Barking Focus on Spongia Tosta This remedy made from toasted sea sponge is useful for avariety of conditions. Consider this remedy with a croupy or barking cough, hoarseness, exhaustion after mild exertion, feeling warm or too hot, and symptoms worse from talking or swallowing. Spongia should be in every homeopathic first aid kit.
Dental Plaque Dental plaque is caused by bacterial microorganisms and, left untreated, can lead to cavities and gum disease. If consistent flossing and brushing aren't enough, consider homeopathic Mercurius Solubilis 30X or 12C, taken once a day.
DISLOCATED JOINT For injuries that result in a joint dislocation, take Arnica 30C every 15 minutes and immediately seek medical treatment.
Dislocated Joint Medical treatment is usually necessary after an injury dislocates a joint. Homeopathic Arnica Montana will greatly relieve the discomfort and inflammation. Take Arnica before as well as after treatment by your medical professional.
DISLOCATION If a joint easily dislocates, the ligaments may have become weakened due to repeated trauma or predisposition. Take Ruta Graveolens 30C once a day for 7-10 days.
EDEMA IN PREGNANCY For fluid retention and swelling during pregnancy, consider Apis Melifica. The 30X potency taken twice a day will bring relief.
ATTENTION MOTHERS: Never let a small baby sleep on its Stomach!!!! Sids dropped 44% once this practise was eliminated.
EARLY OR FALSE LABOR If contractions start and stop without labor becoming fully established, take Pulsatilla 200C every two hours.Discontinue when either the contractions stop, or labor starts in earnest. For higher potency remedies, consult with a professional homeopath.
Finger or Toe Injury Even minor injuries to the fingertips or toes can cause great pain. There are large concentrations of nerves in those areas. Take homeopathic Hypericum every 15 minutes until the pain is relieved.
Frozen Shoulder "Frozen shoulder" is an appropriate
name for a condition that severely restricts normal shoulder movement.Homeopathic
Ruta Graveolens taken twice daily will soon restore normal movement and
Ganglion A ganglion is a small swelling most often found on the back of the wrist. This condition is most often painless. To help shrink the swelling, take homeopathic Ruta Graveolens twice a day for 7-14 days.
Halitosis Bad breath, or halitosis, can be caused by a variety of conditions, including dental cavities, inflamed gums, mouth ulcers and sinus congestion. Homeopathic Mercurius taken three times a day for up to 7 days can help resolve this condition.
Hypoglycemia Low blood sugar can cause a variety of symptoms such as headache, weakness, sweating, irritability, and trembling. Nutrition is most important here - do not skip meals, do not eat sugar on an empty stomach, always have protein with meals and consume small snacks between meals. Take homeopathic Cocculus Indicus three times a day. Have your health care professional regularly check your blood sugar level.
Hyperglycemia People with a diagnosis of diabetes respond best to
a team approach. The team should include a qualified homeopath, a dietician,
and monitoring by a medical doctor. To help your body achieve optimum results
from medical treatment, take homeopathic Silicea. Diabetics receiving constitutional
homeopathic care often require lower doses of drug therapy.
Hypothyroid Low thyroid conditions can be caused by lack of iodine in the diet or a lack of thyroid hormones produced by the body. Symptoms can include sleepiness, low heart rate, constipation, chilliness, weight gain and heavy periods. Have your doctor do the necessary tests for diagnosis and consider professional homeopathic treatment. You might usehomeopathic Arsenicum Album twice a day until you begin constitutional care.
Incontinence....Older adults can be distressed with the involuntary passing f urine. This can occur particularly while standing, walking, coughing or with a sudden sneeze. Homeopathic Pulsatilla 30C, taken once a day, can improve bladder control. Also speak with your health care provider for information on exercises that can retrain the muscles involved.
Ingrown toenails. If nails are weak and ingrown, take Thuja twice a day for 7-14 days. Soaking the feet in warm water and Epsom salts or Calendula liquid can speed the healing process. Cut nails straight across, don't cut too short, and always wear properly fitted shoes.
Liver Spots Liver spots are also called age spots and appear most commonly on the backs of the hands. In addition to adding antioxidants to your vitamin regime (vitamin C, vitamin E and the mineral selenium), use homeopathic Chelidonium as the label recommends.
MENTAL FATIGUE ...Kali Phosphoricum 30X taken every hour for three to four hours will bring back mental sharpness.
Migraine--Right-Sided Often migraine or headache pain can start at the back of the head or neck and spread upward over the head to the right eye. This pain can usually be felt as sharp or knife-like. Take homeopathic Sanguinaria 30X every half hour until the pain is relieved.
Moles Homeopathic Thuja cream has long been known to eliminate warts on the skin. Many simple moles will also respond to this remedy if the cream is applied twice a day. It may take several weeks to totally eliminate the mole, but it will heal cleanly without scarring. Be sure to have regular checkups with your dermatologist.
Osteoporosis This condition of bone density loss has been found not only in older women but also in men and younger women, especially those with a history of anorexia or other conditions involving malnutrition. In addition to exercise and supplemental calcium with boron, take homeopathic Calcarea Phosphorica twice daily to assist bone re-mineralization.
Osteoporosis 2 This condition of weakened or brittle bones is most
often encountered in later life and has a hereditary component. Consider
constitutional homeopathic care. If you are taking drug medication to treat
this condition, add homeopathic Calcarea Phosphoricum, one dose every other
Ovarian cysts These fluid-filled cysts can cause pain when they reach a certain size. They may also contribute to irregular menstrual periods. Take homeopathic Colocynthis twice a day and check with your health care provider to monitor improvement.
Painful Scars Scar tissue is more apt to become painful if it is a result of a deep wound involving nerve tissue or from surgery. Homeopathic Silica can treat the discomfort and prevent the onset of pain if taken while the area is healing.
Pneumonia When To Call The Doctor ...Pneumonia can have a bacterial OR a viral cause and the medical treatment will vary accordingly. To assist the body's ability to heal this condition, take homeopathic Antimonium Tartaricum. This remedy especially suits symptoms such as rattling of mucous in the chest with little expectoration; a sensation of a weight on the chest; chilliness; sticky perspiration; feeling worse in a warm room, in dampness, and in the morning; and feeling better with any expectoration, sitting upright, and with gentle motion.
Rapid Pulse Rapid pulse rate, sometimes with heart palpitations, can becone sign of anxiety and agitation. Homeopathic Cactus Grandiflora taken daily, and as needed during symptoms, can reduce the frequency of this condition.
RAYNAUD'S SYNDROME Constantly cold extremities and a blue coloration of the fingers or toes may be symptoms of Raynaud's syndrome. For symptom relief, take Hepar Sulph 30C once a day. Constitutional homeopathic care may be needed to resolve this condition.
Scar tissue remedy is homeopathic remedy THIOSINAMINUM-RHODALLIN MADE FROM THE OIL OF MUSTARD SEED..USUALLY USED ONCE A DAY FOR 30 DAY'S FOLLOWING SURGERIES.
Sinusitis With Facial Pain...The pressure from a sinus infection can cause swelling, pressure and pain felt in the face. Homeopathic Hepar Sulph 6C or 12X taken every few hours will provide relief from the congestion and discomfort.
Sepsis......SEPSIS Lachesis 30C taken twicedaily will prevent and effectively treat sepsis
Sore Throat - Sore throat pain can accompany a cold, flu, or bacterial infection. For pain that starts on the left side of the throat and moves to the right side, take homeopathic Lachesis 30X or 12C every few hours for relief.
SHIN SPLINTS Shin splints produce pain on the shin bone just below the knee. This condition frequently occurs in athletes, but can also develop from exercising without a proper warm up. Arnica 30C taken twice a day will treat the pain and inflammation. After two weeks, Ruta Graveolens 30C twice a day may be needed to complete the healing process.
Side Effects...Newborns and Drug Babies can exhibit
the effects of the drugs given to the mother during labor and delivery.
Symptoms include lethargy, sleeping too much (even for a newborn), or lack
of response or slow response to stimuli. Dissolve one tablet of homeopathic
Nux Vomica in water (crush with the back of a spoon if necessary). Give
a few drops of this liquid to the baby. Discard the remaining liquid.
Stomach-------CRAMPS... Podophyllum 30X taken every 2 hours as needed
Subluxation Many people seek relief from a chiropractor for vertebral misalignments, or subluxations. Symptoms can include not only pain, but also numbness, weakness, headache, and vertigo. Homeopathic Calcarea Phosphoricum can assist and prolong the restoration of the vertebrae's proper position after an adjustment.
SUICIDAL FEELINGS For suicidal thoughts or feelings, take Aurum Metallicum 30C every 15 minutes while seeking professional assistance. Never dismiss someone's mention of suicidal impulses.
Swimmer's Ear Swimmer's ear, or otitis externa, can produce pain, inflammation, and sometimes abscess of the outer fleshy part of the ear. Keep the ear clean with hydrogen peroxide or a similar disinfectant, and use homeopathic Belladonna every two hours. Take the remedy less often, every 3 to 4 hours, as the pain lessens.
Sensitive Teeth Many people having homeopathic treatment have changed their dental care products to avoid mint, which can counteract the healing effects of some remedies. If you have sensitive teeth, there is now a homeopathy-compatible toothpaste, flavored with fennel, that can minimize tooth sensitivity. It is made by Tom's of Maine, and can be found in many larger health food stores. Also, take homeopathic Plantago once a day to treat sensitive teeth.
Thrush Oral thrush is caused by a fungal infection and is most often seen in infants and the elderly. In addition to taking the nutritional supplement Lactobacillus Acidophilus, use homeopathic Borax three times a day for 5to 7 days. Be sure to sterilize dentures, toothbrushes, and baby's pacifiers.
Tinnitus: I am a big believer in homeopathic cell salts. They have help me tremendously in coping with the high input-output life of a drummer. I perform approximately 12-15 hours a week, full blast, which could take its toll (I'm 42) if I wasn't taking care of myself. For tinnitus, Kali Phos and Mag Phos for the nerves, Kali Mur for any swelling in the inner ear. If I take the remedy before retiring for the night, the symptoms are greatly relieved by morning, and always within 48 hours. These are generic names. There are several manufacturers, notably Scheussler's Cell Salts (the guy who invented them back in 1905), and Boiron out of France; Standard Homeopathy here in the U.S.; all of which are usually available in most health and nutrition stores. You cannot overdose on homeopathic remedies, they are very cheap ($5 for150 doses), and extremely effective, especially on acute conditions.
Tooth Implants Tooth implants supposedly function and look like your own teeth. This can be a solution to those who have lost teeth or cannot be fitted for a bridge. Take homeopathic Arnica before and after each procedure, and take Symphytum to assist in the healing of the bone. Be sure to tell your dentist that you are taking homeopathic remedies because the healing process will be quicker. Please also ask your dentist to avoid using mint-containing products as these will counteract your homeopathic remedies.
Tummy Ache from Sweets...Tummy ache can occur from eating too much sugar, or from eating sweets on an empty stomach. Homeopathic Argent Nitricum 30X or 12C can relieve these digestive complaints..Many people report a decreased craving for sugar after taking Argent Nit.
Urtica Urens Homeopathic Utica Urens is a valuable remedy made from the stinging nettle plant. In cream form, it quickly relieves the pain of burns and insect stings

Toothbrush..Friend or enemy?
Your toothbrush should never be left in the dark or in the bathroom
It picks up all the bad germs associated with the bathroom.
Get it into a lighted area.
It can cause candida...heartburn...headaches..nausea...flu...all sorts of ongoing chronic problems..If you get sick you should toss your toothbrush right away...then toss it after you get well...always buy a clear toothbrush...always keep it in the light or buy a hundred dollar ultraviolet light holder to keep it in.
You would have to boil your brush for 8 hours to keep it germ free otherwise.
This could be the reason for chronic illnesses stock up on them and change them every two weeks or buy an ultraviolet storage holder....

Cockroaches...cucumber rinds repel.
Beer gets rid of slugs.
Plantain herb has the best anti-parasitic properties.
Strings of garlic bulbs and bundles of chili peppers hung from the ceiling of a kitchen have more than just cosmetic appeal. Flies and other pests do not care for them. Aromatic herbs will also keep away kitchen pests. Try growing sage, thyme, oregano, rosemary, basil, or one of the mints in your kitchen windows. Rue, a fast-growing bushy plant with blue-tinged leaves, will work against both flies and fleas. (An aromatic herb such as rosemary will also counter microbial activity in meats, if sprigs of the herb are tucked into the meat.) If you have a problem with ants in your kitchen, find their point of entry and sprinkle cayenne pepper around it. And finally, a couple of bay leaves in your jars of flour, cereals, beans, or rice will deter weevils.

Summer Tip: Mosquitos
Here is a good thing for the summer, for those people who like to sit
and enjoy the outdoors, but don't like those pesky mosquitos.
Put some water in a white dinner plate and add just a couple of drops of
Lemon Fresh Joy dishwashing soap. Put it on your patio.
I don't know what attracts them - the lemon smell, the white color, or
what - but mosquitos flock to it, drop dead and fall into the water or
on the floor within about 10 ft.
If that doesn't work, try this...
You take 2 oz of vodka and use 1/4 tsp of cittranella oil, and 1/4 tsp of encalyptus oil. Mix up good.. You find the oils at the health food store. That will make a spray. I did use the vodka and oils and it did work for my whole family. No bites.

Flea and Tick Control in your Home
Time: Less than one Hour
Tools: Blender Broom
Tips: In Florida they charge a fortune for this treatment, an the only
difference is they add boric acid to the salt.
1.First you'll need one or two boxes of salt for a small carpeted area.
You'll need four to five boxes for a large area. Then put the salt into
your blender, and blend until you have a fine powder.
2.Once you have the fine powder salt, find some type of shaker the best
is a large salt shaker or a cheese shaker.
3.Then shake the fine salt powder all over your carpet, under stove,
refrigerator, dish washer.
4.Once you've applied the salt take your broom and work the powder down
into the nap of the carpet. This is where the fleas egg hatch. Under
kitchen appliances for roach control.
5.Don't vacuum for a few days and allow the powdered salt to work it's
way completely down into the napping of the carpet.
6.You only need to apply this treatment twice a year, or after you
shampoo your carpet.
7.The reason this pest control works, it dehydrates the insects and they
A more refined trap, the slug hotel, can be made from an empty plastic
soda bottle. Cut the bottle at its shoulder, just before it starts to
taper toward the neck. Stick the piece you have just cut off into the
bottle, neck first. Tape the two pieces together with duct or electrical
tape. Fill the trap half full with beer or apple cider and bury it
sideways in your garden, so that the entrance is level with the ground.
When your hotel is full, untape the top and empty its contents into the
garbage or compost. Refill it with beer or cider and post a no vacancy

Insector The Bug Collector
This gadget looks like a piece of artwork that is just for
decoration. Bugs find out quickly that this stylish piece
is not where they wanted to end up. Insector uses blue
light to attract bugs. When a bug arrives it is caught in a
severe downdraft that pushes it into a trap from which
there is no escape--kind of a black hole for your back
yard. Bugs just expire from natural causes. No chemicals or
adhesives are used, so there is no mess. Just unscrew the
base to empty the effluent from the trap.
Insector The Bug Collector is a Sharper Image Designs
product available from The Sharper Image. They can be

Have you ever seen a sweaty dog? Most likely you would not
even recognize it if you were looking at a sweaty dog! Dogs
sweat through the pads on their feet and nose. They
regulate their body temperature by panting. These are the
reasons that you need to take extra caution during the
summer months not to let your dog get over heated. Dogs can
have a heat stroke very quickly, especially if left in a
parked car with the windows rolled up. Do your dog a favor:
if it must go for a ride with you do not leave it in the

Aromatherapy uses the scents or aromatic essences of various plants and flowers to alter moods and to influence psychological and spiritual states.
These scents are also said to influence an individual's physical state, perhaps as a result of the mind-body connection and the impact of one's emotional state on physiological processes in the body.
The powerful sense of smell and the impact of "aromas" on physical states can be
exemplified by the following:
1. The body's response of "gagging" or "heaving" that sometimes accompanies unpleasant smells, such as spoiled food or dead animals.
2. The feeling of relaxation and comfort that some individuals experience when entering a home on Thanksgiving.
3. The strong physical reactions that some individuals experience upon entering a room or home in which individuals smoke, even though there is no cigarette smoke visible in the air.
4. The sexual arousal that may accompany a particular scent associated with an
individual or event.
The pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics industries all realize the importance and
influence of aromas on the physical and psychological being. Menthol from eucalyptus scents cough drops. Mouthwashes differentiate themselves based on aromas. And the perfume-cosmetics industry needs no explanation.
Traditional or "mainstream" medicine usually emphasizes or is associated with the
negative impact of aromas or scents. Anyone who has ever been in a hospital knows the feeling they experience when smelling antiseptics.
But the use of aromatherapy as part of healing has been around for centuries. Though the power of smell is indisputable, aromatherapy is today considered "fringe medicine." The effectiveness of aromatherapy, and the ways in which aromas affect the body require further exploration and explanation.
Aromatherapy usually involves the use of essences in four ways:
1. Through message using aromatic oils
2. Through aromatic baths
3. Through inhalation of the aromas given off by oils
4. Through inhalation of the aromas given off by simmering flowers, herbs, spices and other plants
Aromatherapists caution that aromatic oils can cause negative reactions if used
1. Some can be dangerous and poisonous if ingested.
2. Some can cause allergic reactions to individuals with sensitivities to the product.
3. Some may be too strong to apply directly to the skin.
Aromatherapy is not the same as "herbal medicine," though the use of herbs may be used as part of aromatherapy.
Never swallow or inhale any aromatic oil or apply it directly to your skin, if in doubt of the outcome.
