During your appointment you may be prescribed Homoeopathy. Homoeopathy is one of the most popular forms of medicine in use today. Since its inception by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in Germany more than 200 years ago, it has steadily grown in popularity to the point, where it is now taught in many European schools of Medicine. It provides medicines that are easy to use are relatively free of side-effects, and are non-habit forming, economical an above all provide effective relief for most symptoms.
One of the major differences between Homoeopathy and Modern Medicine is that homoeopathic medicines seek to stimulate the body's natural defence mechanisms against disease, rather than mounting a direct attack on the disease process itself by pharmacological means. By doing so it works with the body to promote a gentle healing response that is broad in action, dealing with much more than just one symptom or disease process. Homoepathic remedies appear to have the capacity to selectively focus the body's healing potential into areas of pathology, depending on which remedy is used and the strength of the remedy. Your homoeoathic prescription may consists of drops, pillules or tablets.
Herbal preparations may be prescribed in tincture, tablet, capsule or herbal teas known as infusions which are not as strong as a tincture.
Our first medicines were herbs. Long before we ever thought to take a pill, our ancestors all over the world were finding remedies in the landscape around them. Since these ancient beginnings, scientific research has proven beyond doubt that the active constituents in plants can have medicinal qualities. Herbal remedies are effective because all the active constituents in a herb work in synergy to provide a "whole" effect without the side effects of conventional medicines.
A peppermint tea is very refreshing. Peppermint (Mentha piperita) could be used as an antispasmodic, and is know for its ability to calm the stomach and relieve diarrhoea. It also helps to reduce stomach gas.
Fennel tea can be a great soother for a colicky baby. Serve as a weak cold tea for babies:
Steep one tea bag or or 1 teaspoon of fennel herb in a cup of hot, once boiled water for two minutes, strain if necessary, and then allow to cool. Give your baby 1 or 2 teaspoons of the tea immediately before and after each feed. You can keep a made -up batch of tea for up to 24 hours, then discard and make a fresh brew.
