Autumn Survival - Herbs and Homeopathy
After a long, hot Summer with many taking holidays abroad here
are some remedies to help ease you into the new Autumn-Winter season:
Travel sickness: Lavender, Ginger or Fennel essential oils
placed on a handkerchief and the aroma inhaled deeply will help.
Also chewing ginger root or crystallized ginger. A Homeopathic combination
of Cocc30/Tab30/Petr30 is very effective.
- Hangovers - If you know you will be drinking large amounts
of alcohol take one Nux Vom 30 Homeopathic remedy one hour before
you start. This should minimise hangover problems; otherwise take
Nux Vom 30 hourly the next day until the hangover symptoms disappear.
- Rich food - for Indigestion from over-indulgence, and
the stomach feels swollen take Nux Vom 30; for indigestion a few
hours after eating rich fatty foods take Pulsatilla 30. Take hourly
until symptoms disappear.
- Food Poisoning - With diarrhoea and vomiting take Arsen
Alb 30 every 30 minutes until the symptoms disappear. A warm bath
with Chamomile and Ginger essential oils, or a warm compress of
these oils placed on the abdomen, may also help.
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Look at raising your Serotonin levels which can ease the depression
associated with Seasonal Affective Disorder - a mood disorder associated
with falling light levels as Autumn and Winter draws on. Increase
your intake of foods containing the amino acid Tryptophan (a precursor
of Serotonin) - found in chicken, turkey, bananas and cottage cheese.
Also consider taking a course of St Johns Wort - found to be very
effective in relieving the mild to moderate depression associated
with SAD. Light therapy has been shown to be very helpful.
