From food poisoning to coughs & colds the New Year is coming in with the usual human ups & downs. If you are ‘up all night vomiting,’ as several people seem to be complaining of, then I would recommend Homeopathic ‘Nux Vomica’ or ‘Arsenicum Album’ 6c or 30c I pill 3 times daily for two days. This is usually available from your local healthfood shop or online from ‘Ainsworth’s Pharmacy’ in New Cavendish Street, London or from ‘Helios Pharmacy’ in Tunbridge Wells Kent, by mail order. Nux Vomica & Arsenicum as remedies can both cause diarrhoea & vomiting so, in Homeopathic Philosophy they can also cure these symptoms. This might sound like upside down, inside out thinking, often there are solutions to problems that we have never considered before but they are worth a try. For a susceptibility to colds & flu you can try Ainsworth’s own ‘Colds & flu’ remedy. This can be taken in a 6c or 30c potency 3 times daily for 3 days or until symptoms improve. Colds & flu are the body’s way of clearing out toxins so it is worth thinking about a New Year detoxification programme. Eating more healthily, cutting down on caffeine, sugary drinks & refined foods. We run a great ‘Cleansing Programme’ here on a regular basis.
