Homeopathic Medicines and Preventative Measures

Preventing illness is more desirable than paying doctor bills, taking prescription medicines and feeling lousy. The problem is we can’t always prevent a health problem. However, we can certainly take steps to be as healthy as we can be, and if we do succumb to sickness, we can use homeopathic medicines for natural healing.

Homeopathy is the natural treatment of illness focusing on the mind, body, and spirit. Homeopathy does not focus on just one of these, the focus is on all three parts as a whole. Homeopathy is said to invigorate the natural body system as an agent to assist in the healing method.

There are several homeopathic medicines to aid you before you get sick and then during an illness.

The Stomach Bug

No one likes getting the stomach flu. Even the mere thought can send you running to the bathroom. However, there are a few tried and true homeopathic remedies that can assist in trying to prevent the stomach flu, as well as make you feel better if you do catch the nasty bug.

Of course, the first thing to do in prevention is to constantly and thoroughly wash your hands, especially in the wintertime when the flu is more apparent.

Chamomile is one of the best ways to prevent and heal stomach ailments. Chamomile is great for growing on your own and this herb can help cure things from stomach upset to jittery nerves and also provide soothing relief for insomnia.

Mint is another great homeopathic treatment for the stomach. Mint is excellent for aiding in digestive issues, and may slow down spasms during stomach illness.

Lemon is a great way to add flavor to your teas and waters, but also works wonders for preventative stomach illnesses. Lemons have vitamin C and may prove helpful in warding off the stomach bug if it is going around your home. Either a tablespoon or two here and there throughout the day or adding it to your teas and water may keep the stomach bug at bay.

The Common Cold

The best way to avoid the common cold is to have everyone cover their mouths and noses and wash hands frequently. However, when the common cold does strike here are the top homeopathic ingredients to help move it along.

Turmeric – Turmeric packs a powerful punch when it comes to moving the common cold out of your system. You can add it to your cooking or in beverages.

Cinnamon – Cinnamon is a wonderful antibiotic. Add cinnamon to your beverages or foods daily for great cold-fighting agents.

Lemon – The acid in lemon helps the body to balance the body’s alkaline levels. A well-balanced body is a healthy body.

These are just some of the ways and ingredients you can use to help prevent sickness with homeopathy.
