Today we have another guest post from, Joette Calabrese,HMC,CCH,RSHom, from www.homeopathyworks.net. A great topic for this time of year! -Kimi
Oh, what a relief it is. After the extravagances of the past decades, we’re finally
seeing a shift in thinking in regards to the use of medications. Yes, I know, every
other commercial is a company pushing their drugs. Yet, in spite of this, there is a
ground swelling of those who remember life without drugs and recall a healthier
Take antacids, for example. If we watched TV ads, we’d be ingesting these
nostrums daily. If, indeed, they must be ingested day after day, perhaps they only
subdue and never get to the essence of the problem. Isn’t that cause for
questioning the value of these products in the first place?
I say it is time we consider another method. One of intelligence, efficacy, of time-
tested value and purity….that is, homeopathy. Homeopathy doesn’t cover up the
problem. It squarely addresses it. Homeopathy has a rich history in the capable
hands of certified homeopaths when used for chronic illness, as well as in the
hands of folks who have no interest in poisoning their bodies with medicaments
that carry side effects. Homeopathy is founded on a firm rock. Its laws and
principles are irrefutable, being proven in tests and clinically in hospitals, clinics,
nurseries and veterinary offices throughout the world for over 200 years. This
little lesson may just convince the staunchest advocates of modern medicine to lay
down their capricious pills and regard the power of homeopathy.
So, does homeopathy offer an antacid for the relief of gastro intestinal
disturbances? You bet! Let’s examine some of homeopathy’s best known
remedies and how to use them.
Natrum phos 6x is homeopathy’s king of antacids. Toss it in your brief case,
diaper bag or glove compartment. Then, anytime indigestion hits, throw 3-4 pills
directly in the mouth. If no relief is afforded within 15 minutes or so, continue
taking these in the same manner. In most cases, the indigestion will be complete
within short order. Oddly enough, the next episode of indigestion will often not be
as severe, not last as long and will be fended off for a longer period of time.
Further, the cost of these little pills is under $15 and they pack no side effects or
Nux vomica 30x is also a remedy one can count on to be efficient and powerful, yet
gentle, for the relief of reflux. It is used when we have over done a good
thing…too much cake, too many drinks on New Years Day, too much candy on
Halloween. It will antidote the symptoms of heartburn, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
and even irritability, as long as this cluster of symptoms match. Even a hang-over
is a thing of the past with the correct use of Nux vomica. Taken every few hours, it
will offer not only relief, but do so without side effects. Often the person suffering
from indigestion who will benefit from Nux Vomica 30x also complains of
wakefulness, usually around 3:00 a.m., with the thoughts of the day dancing
around in his or her head.
The materia medica of homeopathy has thousands of remedies that have been used
since the late 1700’s. They are as consistent today as they were when the
homeopathic doctors used them then. Homeopathy isn’t capricious. That is, it
doesn’t declare that the latest drug is “the” solution only to have it pushed to the
back of the pharmacy shelf within months or years in lieu of the newest hottest
catholicon. Or worse yet, have it withdrawn from the market due to subsequent
illnesses it has caused.
If you suffer from indigestion, consider homeopathy. It may not only relieve your
heartburn, but also that sleeplessness and irritability over having to watch a parade
of irksome commercials.
