Simple, inexpensive, and effective within 10 minutes if you have the right remedy on hand, homeopathic medicines are a life-saver in the medicine cabinets, travel kits, and first aid kits of the metabolically-challenged!
E.g. Cantharis, the burn and sunburn remedy, takes the sting away and lets you sleep at night, without messy lotions and salves
E.g. Arnica, the shock and trauma remedy, calms a meltdown quickly (and is great for pain relief, and faster healing of sprains, strains, and broken bones)
If you’ve wanted a fast introduction to how and why to begin using homeopathic medicines, and where to get more information if you’re interested, this is it.
Homeopathy – despite western medicine’s snide remarks about “little sugar pills” – is a several hundred year old, highly safe, highly effective, and very inexpensive medicine, used around the world.
Those of us with autism tend to have a “trick metabolism” that doesn’t respond in the intended way to drugs. Whether this is because of
- gut dysbiosis
- immune overwhelm
- a clogged detoxification system
- generally high levels of stress, or
- some combination of the above
doesn’t matter as much as that, when we autistics use pharmaceuticals, whether OTC (over-the-counter) or prescription, we usually:
1) don’t get the intended results
2) get a lot of side effects
3) have unusual side effects on top
Consequently, many of us have found our own way to nutrition and natural health care as our primary health support choices. We’ll take a drug if we have to, but if there’s a natural alternative, we usually get much better results.
Rather than “push” the immune system in one direction or another, homeopathics prompt the body to regain balance using the body’s own healing potential.
