      Being a homeopath and nutritionist for the past 20 years, I like any other person get the odd cold, cough or sinus infection. However, in doing what I do I treat myself with natural remedies. My son brought home a cough from school. It it has went through our household. Yesterday I started with very dry and sore throat. Today it has progressed into a productive cough.

 Here is how I typically address my own ailments:

First sign of sore throat or cough, give the indicated homeopathic remedy, oftentimes for me it is Ferrum Phos or Aconitum. Homeopathic remedies are suited to people's symptoms. However, this time I should have taken something on the first day, but I was not home to take remedies and it progressed to a cough. Often one of these two remedies are all that I need.

I will prescribe based on symptoms. For example, dry throat, hoarseness of throat, dry cough, cough better after drinking. The remedy in this case is phosphorus.

If the virus is strong I will take a couple of remedies from St Francis Herb Farm, such as VIRAFECT and RESPIRAFECT as directed. One helps with viruses and the other one helps with coughs and respiratory bugs.

I also bump up my vitamin C, zinc and probiotics, all of these things help the immune system.

Thus far I have been able to fight off any cold, flu, ear ache or sinus infection naturally without the use of antibiotics.

When we take certain medications, like anti-cholesterol medications, or eat a very low fat diet, it can increase our risk of peripheral neuropathy, muscle loss and cognitive decline. Also fat soluble antioxidants are absorbed only when we eat a healthy fat, such as vitamin A, D, K and E.

When I see patients with heart issues, like hypertension, arrythmias, atrial fibrillation or angina, I usually recommend magnesium among other things, in particular the form called magnesium orotate because of its healthy effects on the heart.

Homeopathic and herbal remedies are very helpful for the symptoms of hemorrhoids. Keeping your bowels moving well is helpful because constipation aggravates hemorrhoids. Herbal remedies that are often prescribed for hemorrhoids are horse chestnut, witch hazel and arjuna. Homeopathic remedies are more suited to one's symptoms for example:

  • Nux Vomica is useful for internal hemorrhoids in people who are sedentary in their daily life and tend to constipation.
  • Thjua is excellent for the symptoms of swollen hemorrhoids that are rose when sitting or walking, they have pressure, itching, burning and moisture at the anus
  • Nitric Acid is an excellent remedy for burning, itching anus, excoriation and cutting pains after stools with protruding hemorrhoids and fissures.

As you can see homeopathic remedies are more tailor suited to one's symptoms rather than just the disease name. If you would like more information on how we can help you naturally go to to book a free get acquainted chat today.

People that suffer from metabolic syndrome, kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension may suffer from gout more often. Also some medications such as high blood pressure medications can cause gout.

Homeopathic medicines are useful for treating people's individualized symptoms. I have had patients respond well to homeopathic treatment of their skin by administering a remedy based on their unique set of symptoms. Psoriasis is a disease that is characterized by dry, scaly skin, may or may not be itchy and red. Homeopathic remedies may be suited to these symptoms, for example,

  • Thyroidinum, eruptions in those who are chilly, tendency to obesity. Itching areas of the skin without eruptions, very dry skin.
  • Radium Brom. is a remedy suited to itching burning skin, as if on fire. They have irritable thick eruptions that are moist. Worse from scratching, burning with redness.
  • Petroleium is a remedy that tends to get skin symptoms that are worse in the winter and colder months. Their skin may crack open and bleed.
