New Year time is TRAVELLING AND SPENDING DAYS WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS! Winter is a time when we enjoy a lot . No matter how good or bad the previous year was, these winter holidays offer a ray of hope-for hardworking people,for students, it’s like crossing the finishing line of a marathon. For everyone, it is also a time to reunite with close friends and family.
But what should be a time of total happiness and relaxation often turns into a swamp of despair, mental exhaustion and physical breakdown. What about the busy businessman and stressed-out career woman, holding their breath just long enough to collapse at the first holiday?
Homeopathy will help you get rid of all your problems.

Your savior for the holiday season when food seems to pop-up everywhere and every family member turns into a food pusher. ‘You absolutely have to taste this cake I made for you, and ‘Aren’t you going to taste this special drinks that your friends offer you?’ Temptations, temptations! But the next day your stomach feels like the sewers of Mumbai. Just the thought of food turns you off, and you have a hangover bigger than the Eiffel Tower. Before you succumb to a television ad for the King of Antacids, try Nux vomica — the cheapest and fastest working remedy available. Any hangover will be annhilated and yes, even avoided if you take this remedy in advance before your night of boozing and dining. The same goes for the effects of overeating, or eating too much rich food.
For travellers’ diarrhea, yes you want to go somewhere and want to enjoy nature ,but due to diarrhea you just sit at homeand enjoy your bathroom arsenicum album is the remedy for it. I have used it for my patients so many times and gives good results. However, but some people have the opposite problem when they travel. They get constipated the moment they leave home, often with gas, bloating and burping. Lycopodium comes in action here. In travelers constipation, Calcaria carbonica will also help you .
The students amongst you have just finished a marathon. Do you feel as if your brain has been going through the washer/dryer, with no more functioning brain cells left? Do you feel that you’ll need the entire holiday just to recuperate for the next the semester? I’m amazed at the amount of stimulating drugs students take where the answer to the above question is yes. It’s like playing with fire, because often the body gives up before the final test. And if not, the price you pay for whipping your body like a dead horse is physical collapse. The real solution, of course, is to study from day one, but the party beasts among you are now facing this uphill battle of physical and mental exhaustion. As in any condition, you will succumb mentally and emotionally first. Not a good thought when you have to cram all that knowledge into your ever-shrinking brain. Two homeopathic remedies should be a part of every student’s armory. (potassium phosphate) is ideal for the nervous, sensitive, weak individual, when worry and mental fatigue bring on brain fag. It’s one of the greatest nerve remedies, wonderful for nervous exhaustion and mental and physical depression from over studying. It’s great when the slightest labor seems like a heavy task, causing forgetfulness, loss of memory and despair about passing tests.
An equally powerful mind-stimulating remedy is Picricum acidum It acts upon the brain, spinal cord, kidneys and sexual organs besides helping in over coming physical and mental weakness and tiredness. This remedy covers brain fatigue with sexual excitement: that is, students who are mentally worn out and use increased sexual activity (often masturbation) to relax, which itself leads to physical exhaustion. There is no better remedy for the worn-out person with a lack of will power to undertake anything and a dread of failing exams. You don’t need expensive prescription ‘smart drugs’ when inexpensive, over-the-counter homeopathic remedies can be obtained without fear of a backlash.
Holidays can also be a depressing time because they bring sad memories of deceased relatives. Many times I have seen my patients’ existing symptoms exacerbate or new symptoms come up because the memory of their lost loved ones opens the wounds in their heart again.
Do you know how much that hurts? It is impossible to hide these feelings and yet you are overcome with guilt and remorse because you can’t add to the joyful holiday atmosphere. If you start taking Ignatia two weeks before the holidays, it will give you a calmness, a soothing healing, a feeling that your deceased loved ones are smiling above your head and approving of your serene spirit. Besides emotional turmoil, it will prevent many physical ailments like, a stiff neck, a painful shoulder, arthritis complaints, severe headaches and physical exhaustion. When these symptoms are linked to memories of grief and loss, Ignatia will be your friend in need.
The holiday season has an exhausting effect on most housewives. Most people’s favorite time of the year often turns into a nightmare for the unrewarded woman who guides the family ship through rough waters throughout the year. All that holiday shopping, cooking and entertaining can lead to what we call in homeopathy a Sepia state or a total burn-out and exhaustion, leading to indifference and apathy with yelling and snapping at your children and husband and inexplicable crying spells. Not the right music for the holidays! Sepia (ink of the cuttlefish) can give you the physical and emotional reserves to get through.
KEEP homeopathy with you always and enjoy winter. Help your children make snow-man at Shimla, Manali…..
