Halloween is almost here! Most kids are buzzing with excitement, anxiously waiting for night to fall so they can dress up and dash out the door to collect their candy. Unfortunately, the sights and sounds of the season are a little too frightening for some children. Whether tummy aches from too many treats or nightmares sparked by scary movies, homeopathy can help you handle the little horrors of Halloween. Here’s a selection of single medicines to keep your family healthy on the sweetest and spookiest night of the year.
Made from the coffee bean, Coffea cruda 30C relieves sleeplessness with mental hyperactivity.* It’s useful for those nights when a child is too anxious to sleep like in anticipation of a holiday or after a night of tricks and treats. Give 5 pellets as needed at bedtime.
Your little punkin’ had the best time going door to door — until that grim reaper costume made her cry, and now she’s wide awake. That’s when you need Stramonium 6C to relieve restless sleep with nightmares and crying while asleep, or sleeplessness due to fear of the dark.* Give 5 pellets as needed or before bedtime.
If your kids — or you — overindulge in Halloween candy, Acontimonium crudum 6C can ease the resulting discomfort. This medicine relieves indigestion from eating too much, especially rich or acidic foods, sweets, or cured meat.* Take 5 pellets every hour until symptoms are relieved.
