HCHC & WELEDA WELLBEING EVENT - SATURDAY 1ST DECEMBER 10-12 NOON

Weleda really understand the harmonious connection between nature and mankind. They have used this knowledge since 1921 by carefully selecting natural substances for their products in order to support the body’s own strengths. Their range of Arnica products including creams, lotions, sprays, oils to name a few really showcases this amazingly powerful plant which is often called the ‘Fall Herb’ and is widely used by sporting professionals. No first-aid cabinet should be without it!

Our HCHC practitioners will be available to explain how to take Arnica as a remedy all the many uses it has. It’s our number one remedy for all injuries.


WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON DECEMBER 1ST

OUR CLINIC RUNS THE DAY BEFORE ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 30TH - 10AM-2PM

KEEPING CHILDREN WELL

This second half of the term can often be the most testing for children with increased colds, coughs and ‘flu. Homeopathic constitutional treatment helps build the immune system, making the body less susceptible to ill health.

The beginning of an academic year may bring about a change of school for some children which can sometimes be a difficult transition - homeopathic remedies can help children adjust to the change and cope better.

Homeopathy for children can be an important support in maintaining good health. It works with each child’s constitution, matching remedies to encourage better balance. Our TELFORD HCH clinic offers short FREE information sessions for you and your family to come in and discuss improving your health with us - how we work and how we might support you. 

IMMUNE BOOSTERS - a course of Echinacea and/or a good natural tonic (e.g. Floradix) are worth taking at the first signs of your child’s energy dropping and can help ward off any unwanted symptoms. We have Floradix KINDERVITAL FREE SAMPLES to give away at our clinic - please come in and help yourselves!

SUFFERING FROM HAY FEVER SYMPTOMS?

Itchy eyes, scratchy throats and runny noses are all the symptoms of common hay fever and is now on the increase at this time of year.  There are some good natural products which you can buy over-the-counter but you can also be treated individually with a tailor-made homeopathic prescription to help ease these uncomfortable symptoms.

We can support hay fever symptoms with various remedies and prefer to give treatment during the winter to build on the body's immune system to cope with HF symptoms in the Spring and Summer.

So please feel free to drop into our clinic in Telford and we can talk you through how best to treat your symptoms - whether it's with a product you can source yourself or if you would like to be treated on a deeper level with one of our practitioners.  We look forward to helping you.

TIS THE SEASON OF THE COMMON COLD

COLDS can be seen as a way of ridding us of unwanted toxins and nature's way of telling us to slow down. You can help this process by eating less and increasing your fluid intake with water, fruit and vegetable juices (organic if possible). This aids the de-tox process and conserves energy taken up by digesting food - or just eat fresh fruit and vegetables. Onions are considered as a natural diuretic, so a good home-made onion soup can be ideal.

Colds and 'flu can also be supported with homeopathic remedies. Repeated coughs and colds are often a sign that there is something more chronic underlying and will need specific constitutional treatment from a homeopath to help improve natural immunity.  So come along to one of our clinics and ask for advice or drop into a homeopathic pharmacy and they will be more than happy to suggest what natural remedies would be appropriate to support your condition.

 

 


 

BALANCED HEALTH AND YOUR THYROID GLAND

Health is about keeping in balance and that is what homeopathy aims to do - to help you back to wellness by re-balancing your body which in turn will stimulate its very own self-healing mechanism.

Thyroid problems?

Are you confused about how to treat an under or over active thyroid gland? A homeopathic practitioner will always look at your entire health picture and use a remedy or remedies to boost your general constitution to help stimulate your body's own healing powers.

The link below is from the Homeopathic Medical Association website and it gives a good explanation about the thyroid gland and how it can be out of balance and how homeopathy can help to re-balance it.

VACCINATION SUPPORT

HCHC recommend parents to obtain as much information as possible to ensure they have an informed choice about whether to vaccinate their child or not. Two websites which give helpful information and support are:

https://www.arnica.org.uk

https://www.informedparent.co.uk

A concise book (price £8.00) packed with information is Comparing Natural Immunity With Vaccination - available from: https://www.helios.co.uk/shop/comparing-natural-immunity-with-vaccination

Worried about getting the 'flu?

Now is the time to invest in a good immune booster such as Echinacea which comes in various forms, such as herbal tincture, tablets and pastilles. It's available at most good chemists including Holland & Barrett and Boots and really well worth taking a course of this powerful herbal favourite as a general support, especially if you are feeling a bit run down or if you've been in touch with someone who has the 'flu, even a cough or a cold.

flash-alexander-31252.jpg

 

Homeopathy is also a way of helping to support the immune system and we call it constitutional treatment. This system of medicine is natural and non-toxic and can be a supportive way of helping to avoid those unwanted viruses. Homeopathy is used by many people all over the world as a form of preventative treatment and homeopathic remedies can also help support the actual symptoms which accompany the 'flu such as aching limbs, fever, headaches, lack of energy etc.

 

 

 

 

 

What do you eat for breakfast?

Finding out about what you eat and drink is an important part of our homeopathic consultations.

Not everyone likes the same food and our questions on what you take into your body could well find some keys to finding out why your health isn't as good as it could be.  You may like to use salt a lot or have a particularly sweet tooth - you may dislike fat of any kind or eat lots of ice-cream.

Some people prefer fizzy water to plain and won't touch certain foods e.g. oysters.  They prefer cold to hot drinks - they may really like spicy food, eat loads of meat or are vegan by choice.

This information along with your family and medical history, together with information about what puts you emotionally out of balance helps us to create a more rounded view of you.  You may be dealing with a past grief or major work stress, perhaps over-loaded with family life.  We take all this information and choose the best prescription for you.

Balance health with homeopathy

Are you in balance? Could you be a busy mum or dad juggling lots and lots of tasks? Is the stress getting to you? Are you tired and irritable? Run down and not feeling yourself? If you are a busy mum, perhaps your hormones are causing an imbalance?

ANXIETY IN CHILDREN

Anxiety in children is more common than you think and sometimes hard to tackle and get to the root of the problem. Homeopathy can often work well with supporting mental and emotional problems by taking time to explore all those negative thoughts to help turn them around.

These troubling feelings for children can even start before a child is one year old with 'separation anxiety' or there may be worry with pre-school fears. Maybe later on in their school life, the pressure of tests and exams is the trigger, or there might be a social problem falling out with friends, even a traumatic break-up with a 'best friend'. Shyness in social situations can also create anxious feelings.

The above triggers will often manifest themselves in irritability, outbursts of anger, becoming tearful or clingy. Children may have difficulty in getting off to sleep or waking at night, sometimes with bad dreams or even disturbing nightmares. They may start to bite their nails or chew at their sleeves.

Teenagers can also experience problems with their social life and might start to avoid social situations. They could have worries about their performance in school, sport or an out-of-school activity. Anxiety about health issues or relationship problems also can come up from time to time with teenagers.

A thorough, detailed case taken by your homeopath will collect together your child's personal emotional issues and match them to a remedy to help them back to a balanced way of feeling, leading them back to a sense of wellbeing and confidence - sometimes even creating a new-found confidence.

For further information please come along to one of our HCH clinics at Meeting Point House in Telford town centre where we can further explain how homeopathy works or you can make an appointment to help your child if they are suffering with any of the above. Either ring 07454 086208 or email info@hchclinics.org
