Let Homeopathy Take Care of You during Monsoon
Monsoon celebrates rain dance and, the change of seasons. On the downside, the rainy spell throws up a variety of illnesses, which one can effectively prevent or treat with appropriate homeopathic remedies, under the guidance of a professional homeopath.
Cold & Cough
Cold and cough are common health problems during monsoon. There are homeopathic remedies for each of your problem related to your general health like treating allergies accompanied with sneezing and itching of nose, colds and sniffles, flu with body ache, runny nose and headache, colds brought on after getting wet in the rain.
Respiratory allergies are common during monsoon. They occur primarily because of variations in temperature, poor hygiene, and bad sanitation. They appear with a runny nose, sneezing bouts, headache, and throat infection.
Homeopathic remedies are most useful for such hypersensitivities including nasal allergies. A study conducted in the UK showed that 80 per cent of allergic asthmatic individuals taking homeopathic treatment showed improved results and tangible health benefits.
There is the possibility of ‘fire in your belly’ going haywire during monsoon. Diarrhea, or amoebiasis, a common problem, is often caused by contaminated food or water. The symptoms are dysentery, sometimes mixed with blood and mucous.
Gastroenteritis is equally common during monsoon. The disorder is primarily caused by bacterial, or viral, infections of the gastrointestinal tract. The symptoms are tummy ache, diarrhea, and vomiting, leading to loss of body fluids and dehydration.
Children are more susceptible than grown-up adults. Seeking prompt homeopathic medical treatment is advised to take, if diarrhea, or vomiting, does not stop in children within 24-48 hours.
This is an annoying and irritating skin problem. Fungal infections often develop, because of monsoon’s moist equation. They appear primarily on skin folds, such as the groin and toes. There are appropriate homeopathic remedies useful in generalised fungal infections, and are safe, effective and side-effects free.
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap or regular hand wash, before and after eating food
- Wear clean and dry clothes. Go for semi-synthetic, or blended cotton fabrics during monsoon. Keep an extra pair of clothes in office/workplace
- Eat light food; avoid spicy and fried foods to the best extent possible, because your body is highly vulnerable to infections during monsoon
- Drinking water should be boiled and filtered. It is best to drink warm water with a meal for easy digestion
- Cook vegetables well and steam them well to kill germs, residing in them
- If one is diabetic, one needs to take extra care of their feet during monsoon, because the ground below one’s feet is a sanctuary for all types of germs
- If one is asthmatic, one needs to take special care during monsoon. Ensure that there is no accumulation, or seepage of water, in or around your residence. Good hygienic surroundings will ensure that fungus do not find the fertile “soil” to grow and spread.
