Seasonal Colds, Cough, Sore Throat & Bronchitis 

The beautiful autumnal colors and winter landscape are unfolding before our eyes. Such seasonality brings many pleasant changes as well as the dreaded cold, cough, sore throat (laryngitis) & bronchitis. Antibiotics are of little use against a virus and do little good except further weaken an already strained immune system by killing off the good (disease protecting) bacteria in the gut. Homeopathy can help ease and alleviate many of these nagging and debilitating symptoms with remedies which are safe, gentle, and effective by stimulating the immune system naturally.

Sleep Well & Stay Healthy

Why it's needed
We need regular, quality sleep in order to stay healthy both physically and mentally
During sleep the body revitalises and repairs tissue. Most importantly sleep allows our brain to switch off from the daily strains and stresses of life in order to restore mental harmony and balance.

Sleep States
There are two general states of sleep:1) non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep and 
2) rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. During initial NREM sleep body tissue is rejuvenated and repaired whilst the REM phase (the period of deepest sleep) is when the brain and memory are serviced.  Disruptions in the entire sleep cycle or in the individual phases are believed to account for the various types of sleep disorders.

The Sedative Problem
Whilst the many sedatives and tranquillisers on the market promote NREM sleep they all impede REM sleep. Thus the patient awakens in the morning feeling "heavy in the head" or "on edge" or "hungover" or "having problems with recollection and concentration". This is all because the brain and memory have not enjoyed sufficient REM sleep.


The Homeopathic Way
Homeopathics encourage the natural immune system to optimise the bodys biochemistry and thus promote the various sleep phases entirely naturally. There is thus no distortion of the REM sleep phase and consequently the patient awakens fresh, clear headed, without side effects and looking forward to the day ahead with expectation. Because Homeopathy offers safe, natural and gentle relief for sleeplessness sleep disorders are one of the problems most commonly treated by homeopaths from an arsenal of some 428 remedies.
