Homeopathic 1st Aid Kits for your College Student (or you!)
Sending your child off to college for the first time? How about sending your new college student off with a homeopathic remedy kit so they can stay healthy? A 30c remedy kit can help them be prepared for all kinds of illnesses or injuries. In terms of size, ease of use, and clear directions included, my favorite is the line of Helios Kits. They have a few to choose from—some for 1st Aid, others for travel, and others for day-to-day acute care. And the handy instruction booklet is clearly laid out so they can choose a remedy for the situation quickly and easily. You can find them at the Helios website or I have them for sale in my office.

In this article by fashion journalist Vassi Chamberlain, she writes about her positive personal experience with metabolic balance. She manages to cut her emotional attachment to eating while successfully losing weight and finding equilibrium around food with the help of her metabolic balance coach. She realizes the benefits of sticking with the plan are well beyond just losing weight—her constant headaches go away, her skin looks better, her mood is lighter, and she realizes that food had never really given her the comfort she wanted. She is now in control, and enjoying the best foods for her, for the long-term.
Revel in the Sunshine, but not too much!
Too much sun and/or heat is no joke! If heatstroke comes on from too much exposure to the sun, the first thing to do is to get out of the sun and cool down— quickly! You or someone with you may feel faint, or actually faint, feel confused, and have a terrible headache. This is a medical emergency, so call 911 or take them to the nearest ER, while you wait or are driving, get them into cold water, apply ice packs, spray or sponge their skin with cool water and continuously fan them. If you have homeopathic remedies on hand, in your Homeopathic 1st Aid kit, a dose of homeopathic Belladonna or Glonoinum 30c or 200c can lessen the symptoms while they're on their way to the hospital. After they recover from heatstroke, they should avoid hot temperatures for some time.
