It’s supposed to turn very cold this week. Winter is coming. Time to layer up and keep warm. My husband reckons the cold months are ‘cosy’. He’s from Sweden and whilst its freezing there, I’d argue that it’s not a damp cold like here. He’d argue i’m just better at talking about the weather 🙂

Anyhow, this is usually when the change of weather cold & ‘flu symptoms kick in. If you are affected, flooding your system with Vitamin C, resting when (and if) you can and drinking plenty of fluids can all help your body to restore its energy.

Taking one of the following homeopathic remedies every 3 hours during a bad cold may help your symptoms:

Gelsemium

Gelsemium

Gelsemium 30C for when you have no thirst, your body feels very heavy, your head aches and you feel very weak and you’re trembling.

Rhus Tox 30C for if you got sick after getting rained on and you have a fever; your muscles feel stiff and achy but you want to move and shift around constantly.

Bryonia 30C for if you are really thirsty, feel very irritable and just want to be left alone and all your symptoms are worse when you move even slightly.

Aconite 30C for if your cold came on quickly after being out in a bracing cold wind.

If symptoms persist, seek professional advice.

Caulophyllum

Caulophyllum

Are you about to pop? Are your sides fit to bursting? I’m sure even our demure Duchess Kate is feeling the highs & lows of burgeoning motherhood in final trimester. Pregnancy can be a particularly emotional time as you think about your hopes and fears for everything, for this new person soon to be in your life forever to the birth itself. Gentle exercise like stretching & yoga, deep breathing and swimming can help tone and prepare your body for labour. Raspberry leaf tea is anecdotally believed to help labour and milk production, one cup daily can be drunk from the 7th month onwards.

Any or all of the following low potency homeopathic remedies may help your body in its physical change.

Caulophyllum 12C to strengthen the uterus and help ensure cervix dilation, take daily from the 8th month.

Mag-Phos 6C for heartburn & reflux, take morning and evening in the 6th/7th month, stopping once you feel improvement.

Nat-Mur 6C comes from sodium chloride and may stabilize fluid & salt balance, helping prevent swollen ankles. Take during the 7th/8th month, again stopping once you feel improvement.
