There’s only a few more weeks left before the kids head back to school and the relaxing days of summer are gone. Now is the perfect time to go on that last minute getaway. Although summer vacations can be a great way to recharge or reconnect with family and friends, a few health issues could ruin all of the fun. Here’s where homeopathy can help!
- For sore and stiff muscles: Available as a gel, cream, ointment, pellet or tablet, Arnica montana can help relieve muscle pain and stiffness brought on by a long day of sightseeing or sitting on a cramped flight.* Try Arnicare Cream’s soothing texture to massage sore feet and legs or the gel’s cooling formula to help relieve back pain. You’ll also want to keep the tablets or pellets handy for more widespread pain relief.*
- For traveler’s diarrhea: According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 80 percent of travelers abroad will experience some diarrhea. Vacationers looking to quickly get back to their planned activities can try Podophyllum peltatum 30C for relief. Latin for May-apple, Podophyllum temporarily relieves watery diarrhea with cramping pain that often occurs in the morning, and is usually brought on by excessive eating of fresh fruits.*
- For jet lag: Whether returning from a trip or arriving at your tropical retreat, jet lag can often leave you feeling sluggish and not able to either enjoy the vacation at-hand or jump back into your regular routine. Those experiencing symptoms of jet lag due to their sleep schedule being off, can try Cocculus indicus for relief.* Travelers experiencing digestive issues due to their meals being off schedule can find relief with Nux vomica.* Nux can also come in handy for any overindulgence of food or drink.*
