Homeopathic relief for sunburn

We all love to have fun in the sun without the pain of sunburn. It's incredibly important to do things that make one feel good, not to mention the amazing health benefits of the immune boosting vitamin D that we can get from being in the sun. But here’s what to do to ease the pain and inflammation and assist with healing if one does have a little too much.

Homeopathic Treatments 

  • Arnica 200C is the 1st choice for shock and sunburn. 2 doses 15 mins apart
  • Follow with Urticaria Urens every 15 minutes until pain subsides.
  • Liberally apply cream of Urticaria urens, Calendula & Hypericum.

Do not buy Sunscreens containing


Ultraviolet light from the sun starts a chemical reaction with zinc oxide that releases free radicals making skin vulnerable to cancer and other diseases.


Researchers from Missouri University of Science and Technology estimate that the zinc oxide begins to react within an hour of being exposed to the sun. 


These are very tiny molecules typically of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide used to potentiate Sunscreens.

Critics say the size of the particles may allow them to permeate protective barriers in the body, such as those surrounding the brain or a developing baby in the womb.
Conclusion: Avoid creams containing titanium or zinc.

Heat induced headaches

We all enjoy a day at the picnic, ballpark, or beach--but when we get home we realise we've got a sun-induced headache that just won't go away. Heat from the sun can cause blood vessels in the brain to dilate and raise your skin temperature causing pain. Additionally the sun's glare can also irritate the eyes resulting in head pain. Hot weather is a frequent cause of headache, and may also bring on a migraine in those who are prone. Stress, exhaustion, not eating and drinking regularlywhich frequently occur when it is hot - can increase the chance of getting a headache.
