Are you looking for safe and natural solutions for allergies, bug bites, sunburn, sore muscles and other common problems that come along with the arrival of spring and summer? Then tune into “Sonoran Living Live” tomorrow morning on ABC Ch. 15 (KNXV-TV, Phoenix, Ariz.). Pharmacist Stuart Gethner of Tatum Drug in Cave Creek, Ariz. will provide easy and cost-effective health solutions for these and other common conditions.
Dr. Gethner will review several natural products, including Sabadil, an ideal first-line treatment for allergies, especially for those who don’t know much about homeopathic medicines. Sabadil combines the most useful single homeopathic medicines into one formula, making it easy to address a range of the most common allergy symptoms, such as itchy and watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose, and itchy throat and nose. It’s free of side effects, and unlike antihistamines, it won’t make you drowsy so you can remain alert and productive.
For great summer skin, Dr. Gethner recommends Calendula. It is one of the most versatile and economical items in a health store for a wide variety of skin irritations. Made from the Garden marigold, Calendula has been applied locally for centuries. Undetectable to others, the topical has no medicinal smell, and is free of artificial colors and perfumes. Use it for treating insect bites and sunburn. It won’t sting when applied to a cut or scraped knee. Or try it as an aftershave on legs or your face. It’s great for minor first degree burns from the backyard barbecue or kitchen stove. It also makes a great naturally shinny lip balm and helps with blisters from new summer sandals.
