Homeopathy for smoke inhalation from bush fires

The poor air quality we are experiencing in NSW from the bush fires right now can be helped with the use of certain homeopathic remedies. It is best not to combine them but to use the one that best suits your symptoms so I have listed a few below.  I am available for consultations for this condition, but those of you with a homeopathic first aid kit may find you have some of these remedies already. If you have pre-existing medical conditions aggravated by the air quality always seek advice from an experienced practitioner before taking any of these remedies.

Arsenicum  – For smoke exposure with anxiety. Eyes burn and stream. Nose burns and streams. Cough is dry and worse at night. Tremendous anxiety especially about what is going to happen—and restlessness.

Bryonia  – Soreness in larynx and trachea. Hoarseness, Worse in open air. Dry, hacking cough from irritation in upper trachea. Cough, dry at night, must sit up. Worse after eating or drinking. Frequent desire to take long breath; must expand lungs. Difficult, quick respiration. Heaviness beneath the sternum extending towards the right shoulder. Worse going into warm room.

Calcera carbonica  – Tickling cough, troublesome at night. Painless hoarseness; worse in the morning. Suffocating spells; tightness, burning and soreness in chest. Chest sensitive to touch or pressure. Longing for fresh air.

Carbo Vegetabilis  -Wheezing, cough with burning in chest. Short of breath. Oxygen starvation. Must be fanned. Hoarseness. Cough with itching in larynx. Sore and raw chest. Rattling of mucus in chest. Exhausted, weak. Cold clammy skin, cold breath. Better: cool air. Worse: evenings, open air, warm damp weather.

Causticum – Hoarseness with pain in chest. Larynx sore. Cough with raw soreness of chest. Cough with pain in hip. Better drinking cold water. Pain in chest with palpitation. Cannot lie down at night.

Euphrasia – For simple smoke exposure with irritation to eyes and possibly nose and no other symptoms. Eyes stream and burn—lids are red, swollen, and sensitive. Nose streams but does not burn. There may be a little daytime cough. The eyes stream on coughing.

Natrum arsenicum  – Great sensitivity to smoke. Useful when the indicated remedies haven’t helped much or at all. Eyes dry and painful. They stream and smart on going out into the smoky air. Sinuses feel blocked and are painful. Racking cough. Lungs feel full of smoke. Headache from the smoke.

Silica  – To help the body eject inhaled particles. Nose dry and blocked—no sense of smell or taste. Sinuses stuffed up and painful. Dry, irritating cough from inhaled particles. With lumpy, yellow mucus.


Intuitive Healing – Discovering my Inner Strength

As I move into my 6th year working  full time as a homeopath and healer the more I am learning that my strength in healing is based on Intuition. Intuition meaning that voice that tells me what a person needs or needs to do in order to heal. That voice  – many ask where does it come from? I think sometimes it comes from my higher self and sometimes from Guidance from Spirit and spirit guides.. I just know that when I listen to it magic happens, whether with the homeopathic remedies or with a reiki session.
The best results I have as a homeopath and as an energy healer come when I just trust my sense of knowing what is right for the client instead of spending a lot of energy with my head trying to work things out. It’s a balance of listening to what their body and energy field are telling me and what my guidance and inner voice are telling me.
One example of this is last week when my cat was sick with a UTI. All my homeopathy text books were telling me a select few remedies, so I tried them and there was some limited success, but my gut was to try a remedy that isn’t on those lists (although it is indicated for her condition just not as commonly successful) – when I trusted my gut and gave her that remedy she started feeling better straightaway – within minutes. (please note I did also take her to the Vet!) I have many examples of this kind of experience – but if I try and explain why one remedy or technique works for a client there isn’t always a logical explanation.
The more I trust these knowings, these intuitive senses.. the better things in life flow. This isn’t restricted to my healing business but to everything in life. So if you are the kind of person who wants to work with your health with a practitioner who works in this way – Give me a call!
If you are ready and willing to let go of the thoughts of the head and trust the heart and the Universal Life Force that I believe this intuited knowledge comes from then step into that knowing, I will soon be offering workshops and courses on Intuition and helping others to get in touch with that Sixth sense to use it in healing for the self and others. While this has always been a part of my workshops it will be more the focus of them.

Your Inner Goddess is Ready To Awaken

For 2018 one of my intentions is to be more visible and to SHINE as the Inner Goddess emerges from her cocoon.. some of you will have seen that I am holding a retreat in March called Awakening the Inner Goddess in March – so my practice has been for me to be more aware of her in my life and to recognise that beauty, strength and power more than I have in the past.

So what are the signs of the Inner Goddess in your life and how do you recognise her? These are just a few of the points that I have seen her show up in my life

  • the Inner Goddess knows the answer to my problems – that voice in the back of my head or that gut feeling about a situation or a problem – that is her whispering
  • The inner goddess knows what is good for my body and mind – she loves the food that makes my heart sing and knows when i need to sit and meditate or get up and dance! When i commit to letting her shine she does these things automatically making time for them instead of sitting scrolling on social media or watching mindless hours of TV
  • My Inner Goddess also has no fear or anxiety – she knows what I need to be doing to have an enriched and fulfilling life and she knows how to do it without hesitation. She also knows when I need help on a practical level and is not scared to ask for it. She loves to have a team to work with who empower each other to allow visions to become reality.
  • My Inner Goddess loves me unconditionally – she is the counter to my self-critical inner voice. She loves every curve and wobble, scar and blemish on my body and soul.

If you would like to connect more with your Inner Goddess please check out my workshops and retreat page or contact me below and I will respond as soon as I can
