Whether your ailment is gas and bloating, heartburn and indigestion, or nausea a homeopathic remedy can be taken to relieve your systems and restore you back to normal again.
Below are several scenarios identifying homeopathic remedies that you may want to have on hand to help you get through the holiday season and beyond.
Homeopathic remedies to relieve gas and bloating
Lycopodium is the homeopathic remedy to use if your overindulgence has resulted in gas and bloating, accompanied with gurgling in the lower abdomen. These symptoms come from eating foods that do not agree with you (dairy, wheat, etc.) or from overeating.
Take 1-3 pellets of Lycopodium 30c and repeat every 15 minutes, until your gas and bloating start to diminish. Most people will only need a couple of doses to get results and feel better.
Homeopathic remedies to relieve heartburn and indegestion
If your ailment is heartburn and indigestion – There are several homeopathic remedies that can be taken; selecting the best remedy for you all depends on the time you start to experience your symptoms.
If the heartburn and indigestion begins one half hour after a meal, select the homeopathic remedy Carbo Vegetabilis.
The homeopathic remedy Nux Vomica would be selected if you are having heartburn and indigestion several hours after eating.
And, if you wake up during the middle of the night with heartburn and indigestion, select the homeopathic remedy Arsenicum Album.
Whichever remedy you choose for your symptoms, use a 30c potency. Take 1-3 pellets on the tongue every 15-30 minutes until you start to see improvement, then back off the selected homeopathic remedy and repeat the remedy if the symptoms start to return again. In many cases, I have found my clients experience burping along with their heartburn. Lycopodium is the homeopathic remedy to use if you have a combination of these symptoms.
Homeopathic remedies to relieve nausea
When we feel nauseated from eating greasy, and or rich foods think of Pulsatilla. The homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla will help if the stomach feels queasy and you feel better with moving open air.
Pulsatilla 30c every 15 minutes until nausea starts to improve.
Homeopathic remedies are easily found in most health food stores, Whole Food Markets, Trader Joe’s and some pharmacies.
I wish you the best of the holidays this year, by enjoying love and laughter with your family and friends.
