Joy to all mothers out there as we celebrate you this Sunday! There may be a few of you who are feeling the odd twinge in your joints, especially when March is cold and damp. Arthritis (inflammation of the joints) and rheumatism (inflammation of tissue or fibrous surrounding the joints) affect many older women. Bathing with two handfuls of Epsom salts thrown in can help draw out toxins through the skin and make a great Mothering Sunday gift. Food-wise, try to limit the acidity in your diet. Tomato juice mixed with a teaspoon of yeast, lecithin and wheat-germ drank 1 hour before a meal can also help restore the acid/alkali balance.

One of these homeopathic remedies can be taken twice daily for three days, then repeat again after a couple of weeks:

Rhus Toxicodendron

Rhus Toxicodendron

Rhus Tox 30C can help with stiffness and swelling especially when pains are worse with initial movement after resting, better for continual movement and worse in damp weather.

Bryonia 30C can be good when there is pain with any movement but especially if that pain improves if pressure is applied to the area.

Nux Vomica

Happy New Year! Feeling the effects of the festive merriment? Many opt for a January Detox and resolve to lay off the booze and fats/sugars for a while. Whatever your resolutions, this homeopathic tip works for all. It’s the 8X8 liver booster. Take Nux Vomica 30C at 8am and Sulphur 30C at 8pm

Sulphur

Do that for 5 days and by the end you’ll be feeling more energetic and less sluggish. Simple! 2013, Bring It On!
(Homeopathic remedies can be found in most health food stores and chemists).

Pulsatilla vulgaris

Nursing a seasonal sniffle? Yes, it’s that time of year again as we build immunity to take us through the colder months. If you feel worse in the morning but better as soon as you leave the house for work, only to feel stopped up when you get there, try Pulsatilla 30C. Three times daily should do the trick. A great homeopathic remedy especially if your cold has re-appeared just when you thought it was on it’s way out………
