How Can Homeopathy Help Relieve your Symptoms?

Hello, lovely ladies,

TodayI want to share with you my top homeopathic remedies and flower essences to help treat your headaches and migraines.  These can be used not only in pregnancy (after 8 weeks) but for general tension headaches etc.

When using homeopathy the whole picture of the person is taken not just their physical  symptoms.  Lots of information will be taken to build up a picture of the person as a whole including any emotions you may be feeling, sensations you are experiencing, what makes your symptoms worse and what makes them better. What are you experiencing in your life at this time that could be  adding to your headaches or migraines?

I have, therefore, share lots of information for you on each remedy to help you to decide which is the best fit for you.  This will also show you how I work with my patients in my practice.

I would also like to share with you a couple of Flower Essences to help support the Homeopathy.  I find they work beautifully together.

Australian Bush Flower Essence
Black-eyed Susan

This is a great essence for people that are fast moving and quick thinking.  A good indication that this essence is needed is the large amount of stress that is present in your life.  People that need Black-eyed Susan are constantly trying to cram too many activities into their day causing themselves lots of stress, which in turn presents as a tension headache due to muscle tension.  This essence helps to slow down, turn inwards enabling them to find calmness and inner guidance.  Other physical symptoms that may be present and Black-eyed Susan can assist with is heartburn and diarrhoea, due to their intestines being in a hurry, back problems, and adrenal fatigue.

Take 7 drops of this essence morning and night when feeling overwhelmed, in a hurry or are suffering from any of the above symptoms.

Australian Bush Flower Combination  Essence
Emergency Essence

This Essence is a combination of Crowea, Fringed Violet, Grey Spider Flower. Sundew and Waratah.  It is a great essence to have in handbag or cupboard for any physical or emotional upset.  It has a calming effect on the mind, emotions, and body during minor and major crises.  It will quickly ease, fear, panic, severe mental or physical stress, nervous tension, and pain which can all be adding to your headaches and migraines.

This remedy can be given every 10-15 minutes if necessary until the person feels better. 7 drops.

I hope you give these essences and remedies a try as I know they will support you and help to relieve your symptoms.

Of course, if your symptoms persist please seek medical advice immediately.
