  • I loved Sunday with Dr Saunders. He has so much insight and his lectures are so interesting.  I love how he presents his own case, then talks about physiology, pathology, pharmacology, medical terms, peppered with the materia medica and nutrition, and a bit of posology and philosophy. He is such...

  • Even thoough the homework seems the equivalent of writing a term paper each week,  I'm still enjoying the program immensely.  I'm very impressed at how well it's planned out, adding (what seems like, ha ha) a "simple step"  gradually,  covering particular remedies which turns out to be a properly timed review,...

Homeopathic First Aid for the Sun

Ahhhh....a long weekend in the sun! But too much sun can lead to heat or sunstroke. I suffered form this on a long weekend many, many years ago. My first trip to Lake Huron and for some reason I was totally unaware of the length of time I spent in the sun. Heat and Sun stroke can be very serious - even life threatening. It is important to stay hydrated, wear light clothing, and get your temerature down with gradualy cooling should you suffer form this condition. Medical attention should be sought.

For the minor variety there are several homeopathic remedies offer great help. Two of the most common ones are Belladonna and Glonoine. Choose the remedy which most accurately matches your symptoms.

Belladonna: burning skin - dry heat on head. Throbbing, bursting, hammering headache. Red face. Headache worse forlying flat but better for keeping still in a darkened room. Better for bending the head backwrds. Fever - heat alternatng with chills. Starring eyes - may be in a stupor. Dilated pupils.

Glonoine: Very similar to Belladonna. Red face. Heavy headed with dizziness, throbbing headache. Cannot bear ay het around head or having it covered. Dull and collapsed state. Better for cold applications and holding the head. Throbbing, bursting headache increases at sunrise, dereases at sunset.

Belladonna would have done the trick for me back then. I just wish I had known about Homeopathy then!
