How To Naturally Heal Tooth Trauma

What can you do if your child suffers trauma to a tooth and it turns grey? Many will say there is nothing you can do about it. That has not been my experience. Last year, my daughter slipped and fell in the bathroom. She hit her tooth on the lid of a garbage pail. The tooth suffered some trauma, but it was not chipped or broken. It looked a little bruised at the gumline though. In that moment I was so grateful for homeopathy. Seriously. What else can you use in a situation like this? I gave her one dose…

Natural Allergy Relief

Allergies – bleh. I have never suffered from them in the past, but a few weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night and my eyes were ITCHY. It was actually only my left eye. I woke up at 2AM and I literally could not fall back asleep because my eye was really irritated. I could not stop rubbing it. I stumbled into my laundry room, half asleep, and reached into my trusted homeopathy kit. I found the remedy that I was seeking – Allium cepa 30c. I took one dose, and moments after my eye stopped…

Mosquito Bite Relief

Mosquitoes are some of the most annoying critters on the planet. I used to suffer for days after being bit by them. It is hard to find relief for the itching, and the swelling. Once, when I was a kid, I was bitten on my eyelid and my eye swelled up so much it was difficult to see! There wasn’t much I could do about it either. Icing it helped a little. Benadryl helped, sometimes, but it made me incredibly drowsy, (sometimes it knocked me out for hours). The itching ,eek. Witch hazel helped a little, but not much. Even…

Natural Heartburn Relief

Heartburn is not fun. Many people think relief can only be found with antacids or proton pump inhibitors. Some of the drugs used for heartburn relief have horrible side effects. (Source). Sadly most people think drugs are the only option. That is not true. I did not have problems with heartburn until I was pregnant. It did not get bad until the very end of the pregnancy. I am guessing this happened from the pressure on my stomach. The beauty of homeopathy is the cause does not matter, only the symptoms matter. (This takes some getting used to, especially for…

My Favorite Remedies

The past few months have been busy. I have been doing my part to try to keep homeopathy available to all Americans. The FDA is positioning itself to remove the CPG 400.400, a critical document that has guided the FDA on how to enforce regulations with respect to homeopathy. There has been a lot of speculation about what this can mean for homeopathy in the future, but no one knows for sure. There is a strong possibility our access to homeopathic medicines will be affected. This would be very unfortunate, and I hope that does not happen. If you have…

Teething

Hyland’s teething tablets, which was a “go-to” teething remedy for many moms, is no longer available. Hyland’s decided to voluntarily discontinue this product in response to pressure from the FDA. So many “naturally minded mothers” have been struggling to find an alternative. Not to worry, there are plenty of homeopathic remedies that work, many of which were in the Hyland’s teething tablets. I learned this protocol from my homeopath, and it has served me well. Chamomilla 200c and Calc Phos 6x twice a day. Use only if needed, and stop giving the remedies once the symptoms have improved. I have…

Natural Tooth Pain Relief

When I was pregnant with my second daughter, I got myself into a difficult situation with my wisdom tooth. I had a cavity before I got pregnant. My family had recently moved back to America and I had not yet found a holistic dentist so I put off getting it filled. (Not a good idea, I know, but it happened). After I got pregnant, it got worse. It was not painful at all, unless I put pressure on it. (I basically had to chew using one side of my mouth). I was able to halt the decay, (prevent it from…

Homeopathy and Ear Infections

The fall of 2016 was rough for me. I rarely get sick, other than a runny nose here and there. A few years ago our house was hit pretty hard. I am not sure why, but I was grateful I knew how to use homeopathy. When I wrote this post on Arnica, I was still fairly new to homeopathy, and I still did not understand how it works. Quite honestly it bothers me, I have a very analytical mind and I have a hard time NOT intellectualizing things. (I have been told NOT to do this with homeopathy, to just…

Natural Flu Treatment

Every year the media tells us the flu season is the “worst season ever”. This year is no different, and a few friends have asked me about natural ways to fight the flu. So I decided to write a post about this. Disclaimer – I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice. I am simply sharing my personal experience. Last year I found out I was pregnant in February. (I found out on Valentine’s Day). Around a week later I caught the flu. (Awesome timing, right?) I was genuinely surprised because I very rarely get ill. I…

Arnica

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller Yesterday, my daughter bumped her head against the wall. I saw it happen but I was too far away to stop it. (I guess this is why they are called toddlers, they are vertically challenged at times, especially when they are tired). Poor Lily was hysterical, but I was able to remain calm, (once I saw there was no blood). I took the first aid kit out of my purse, grabbed a tube of Arnica cream and rubbed a little on my daughter’s forehead. Within seconds she…
