Is it possible to become one’s own Doctor?
For this, you will just need some basic knowledge and basic medicines, that’s it. Of course, becoming a doctor is not everyone’s cup of tea. Not everyone can do what doctors do. But we can’t run to the doctor for every little thing. We should try to fix ourselves till the last. We should go to the doctor only if it is out of control. As we know, Allopathy medicines are full of side effects. That’s why we should mostly try to get it cured naturally. Homeopathy is a medical system based on the belief that the body can cure itself.
Homeopathy operates on the principle that “like cures like” this means that a disease can be cured by treating it with products that produce the same symptoms as the disease. For example, red onion makes your eyes water. That’s why it’s used in homeopathic remedies for allergies. It also follows a law called Infinitesimals. The Law of Infinitesimals states that the lower a dose of curative, the more effective it is. To make a Homeopathy remedy, the curative is diluted many times until only a tiny amount remains in a huge amount of the diluting liquid.
Prepare your own FirstAid
I would suggest you prepare your own Casket of homeopathy medicines.
I am going to tell you the frequently used homeopathy medicines.
FEVER (Rhus Tox 30)
Rhus Tox is one of the top natural medicines for persons who have a fever with extreme body aches, leading to restlessness. Such a person wants to remain in motion to get relief. Rhus Tox is also the natural medicine for fever as a result of getting wet in rain.
COMMON COLD (Arsenic Album 30)
These children have a burning nasal discharge that irritates the nostrils and upper lip. They are very chilly and are sensitive to cold air. They may, in fact, sneeze from any change in temperature. Typically, the cold begins in the nose and moves down to the throat (once it goes down into the chest a different remedy is usually needed). They also have dryness of the mouth that leads to a great thirst but for only sips of water at a time.
BURNS (Cantharis 30, Urtica Urens 30, Arnica 30)
Arnica – This is the remedy that is most likely to be in your cupboard at home. At the first sign of a burn, either minor or severe, give a dose of Arnica. This remedy helps to remove the shock from the person and will immediately kick-start the healing process. It will also help to alleviate any pain. If it is a minor burn, then Arnica may be the one and the only remedy needed. If you want to feel it in action yourself, then the next time you burn yourself in the kitchen while cooking, give yourself a dose and be amazed at how quickly the pain disappears and the mark fades and heals.
Urtica Urens – This remedy is made from Stinging Nettle. As a homeopathic remedy cures in a sick person what it can cause in a healthy person, Urtica Urens is fabulous for itching blotches with burning heat. It is for burns and scalds with burning, itching, and stinging sensation. This is a very good remedy for minor burns and also later in the healing for a second-degree burn.
Causticum – This a wonderful remedy for burns of a second degree. It will remove the pain and speed the healing of the skin quite some. The sensation of a Causticum state will be burning, rawness, and soreness. There can be restlessness and irritability with tearfulness. This is a remedy that is very good for burns that are slow in healing.
An interesting fact about Causticum is it feels a huge amount of injustice. When children need this remedy in my clinic, often they have been expressing “It’s unfair!” a lot just before they get sick. When you give this remedy in practice it helps to remove the person’s focus of how unfair the circumstances are, which I can only imagine in a burn situation, it is possible that you might feel that way. Again, another example of how deeply homeopathy heals across the emotional and mental levels as well as the physical.
An excellent remedy for third-degree burns is Cantharis. Cantharis is very good for severe pain and shock. The symptoms that it matches for burns are when they are very inflamed and have the sensation of rawness and smarting which is better for cold being applied. This remedy should be used for all extensive burns. Cantharis is an excellent remedy for urine infections which may or may not accompany the symptoms. If that symptom appeared, it would most certainly be a clear indicator that this remedy was needed.
I recently burned myself with some hot oil in the kitchen and Arnica did not work at all on it. An hour later it was still burning and very red. One dose of Cantharis and the pain eased so much I quite forgot to take another dose. It healed perfectly with no redness, blister, or scarring!
Vomiting/Indigestion (Nux Vomica 30)
This medicine should be considered when children have a digestive upset after prolonged mental or emotional stress or after overindulging in food, alcohol, or drugs (either by the child or the breastfeeding mother). They may want to vomit but have difficulty and instead retch frequently. When they are able to vomit, it provides relief. They also suffer from distension of their abdomen which is tender to the touch; they usually need to loosen the pants around their waist. They are also very flatulent and feel better if they are able to pass gas. They tend to have heartburn, much bloating and gas, and constipation with constant ineffectual urges for a stool and a sense of never being finished. These children are irritable, and they often have a headache concurrent with their digestive problems.
Period Cramps (Cimicifuga 200)
This homeopathic medicine helps in reducing the lower back pain during excess flow that gets complicated by motion. When the pain is proportional to the flow, if there is excess flow then the pain also increases. Cimicifuga also cures the stiffness of neck and shoulders and pain in the pelvic region.
Gastric (Carbo veg 30 + China 30 + Lycopodium 30)
CARBO VEG:- Slow and imperfect digestion, weight in the stomach and intestines, and a faint and all-gone sensation in the stomach not relieved by eating. But after a few mouthfuls, there is a sense of repletion. There is violent burning in the stomach, chest, and abdomen with crampy pains that force the patient to bend double. Heaviness in the stomach. The eructations are rancid. Sour and putrid. There is flatulence in the stomach or upper part of the abdomen.
3.CHINA:- Where there is flatulence in the whole of the abdomen and the distension is painful, Only relieved momentarily by belching. Sour or bitter eructations or offensive flatus. Digestion is slow, worse after a late supper. Yellow diarrhea, worse at night and after meals is an important keynote of this remedy. The absence of rancid belching with burning in this remedy distinguiShes it from the Carbo veg. Another important indication of this remedy is that the food doesn’t digest but lies. a long time in the stomach causing eructations and finally is vomited undigested.
4.LYCOPODIUM:- It is indicated when there is flatulence in the lower part of the abdomen. Vigorous appetite but few mouthfuls make him feel as if the stomach is bloated and he has to leave his meals. Unlike pulsatilla and Anacardium, the distress in lycopodium is seen Immediately after and not half an hour after eating as in the Former two remedies. Nux Mosch has distress immediately after eating but there is intolerance of pressure about the waist, not all the time as in Lachesis. Another important symptom of this remedy is the desire for sweets. It is especially useful in the atonic and acid forms of dyspepsia, for it has a sour taste, sour belching, and vomiting, whenever it does occur, it is sour. Painful swelling at the pit of the stomach. Belching of gas does not afford any relief. Red sand in the urine. Colic in newly born children.
Blood Pressure (Glonoine 6)
A flushed face with a pounding headache and visible throbbing in the blood vessels of the neck may indicate a need for this remedy. The chest can feel congested or hot, with a pounding or irregular heartbeat. The person is worse after moving around, heat and sun exposure, and drinking alcohol. A feeling of “being lost in a familiar place” is a strong indicator for this remedy. Sudden flushing or increased blood flow to the head.
Diabetes (Syzygium Q + Gymnema Sylvestre Q)
Syzygium jambolanum, traditional homoeopathic remedy is used clinically to treat people with diabetes. It is reported to have an effect in managing the high blood sugar.
Syzygium jambolanum or S. cumini (black plum) is said to help treat thirst, weakness, skin ulcers, and excessive urination.
Gymnema sylvestre may help you fight sugar cravings and lower high blood sugar levels. The plant may also play a beneficial role in diabetes treatment, as it may help stimulate insulin secretion and the regeneration of pancreas islet cells — both of which can help lower blood sugar
Dog bites/Insect bite (Ledum pal 30)
Ledum has a reputation for helping with insect bites, such as mosquito, spider, tick, wasp, bee and scorpion bites, and with puncture wounds. It can also help with the bites of poisonous animals and dogs. The Ledum characteristics should be present to indicate the remedy: the patient feels chilled, but is ameliorated by ice or cold applications. The injured part is inflamed, swollen, purple and mottled.
Acidity (Ars.Album 30)
This remedy may be indicated if a person feels anxious, restless yet exhausted, and is worse from the smell and sight of food. Burning pain is felt in the stomach and esophagus, which often is relieved by warmth and sitting up. Vomiting and diarrhea are possible. Upsets from spoiled food or from eating too much fruit often respond to this remedy.
The keynote of this remedy is “burning pains” and this is what your stomach will feel like -“burning as from red- hot coals”.
The burning is in the stomach and the pit of the stomach and it goes up to the throat.
Heartburn gulps up acid and bitter substances that makes the throat raw.
You will feel better from the acidity in the stomach by drinking milk. Also, stomach pain or acidity can be relieved by drinking hot drinks or food.
The heartburn may come up at night, after midnight and disturb your sleep.
Headache (Sanguinaria Canadensis 200, Belladonna 30)
It is important to understand that there are several different types of headaches and while some are short-lived, some of them can trouble throughout the length of the day.
There are different triggers for headaches. Here are some of them:
Strain on the eyes
Skipping a meal
Poor sleeping habits
While it is common for people to pop one painkiller after another to get through the day, these over-the-counter pain medications come with their own set of side-effects. They may help you get rid of the pain for one day, but they do not get to the root cause of the same. This is where an alternate treatment approach like homoeopathy comes to fore.
Belladonna : If you have a throbbing headache and feel that your head might just ‘explode’ with pain. The pain is usually on the right side of the head and often comes rapidly. It can also be taken for headache resulting from too much exposure to the sun.
Sanguinaria 200 :
- Pain begins in the back of the head, extending to right side of the head or right eye
- Headaches recur periodically Confirmatory symptoms
- Nausea and vomiting; vomiting brings relief
- Pain sharp, splitting, knifelike, or throbbing
- Pain worse from motion, better from sleep and firm pressure
You can buy these medicines from local clinics and also from online markets like Healthmug.com or Amazon. It will not cost you more than 500 bucks.
NOTE : When taking a homeopathic remedy:
Avoid drinking strong tea or coffee which may interfere with the homeopathic effect.
