Today is Valentine’s Day. But for those not celebrating the romantic holiday there is Single Awareness (or Appreciation) Day. This humorous holiday provides single people with an alternative to Valentine's Day festivities and shows what solitude has going for it. For example, singles can come and go without worrying about a significant other. A single can accept a job offer without consulting anyone else. Singles also tend to be more self-reliant. And a single mobile phone plan is generally much cheaper than a plan with multiple lines.
And in homeopathy, singles can be a good thing too. Boiron single medicines do no interact with other medications, herbs or supplements and are packaged in convenient, easy-to-use multidose tubes. The quick-dissolving pellets help to relieve a wide variety of acute conditions. Here are some of the best have on hand for your mid-winter ailments.
Nux vomica: Let’s say your significant other takes you out for a lavish, romantic Valentine's Day dinner. And you overdo it. Nux vomica relieves nausea, digestive troubles, and irritability from overindulgence in food, tobacco, or alcohol and is often used to relieve symptoms of a hangover.*
Histaminum hydrochloricum: The dozen Valentine roses are absolutely stunningly beautiful. But as soon as you get close, you start to sneeze. Histaminum relieves symptoms of allergies, including hay fever or hives, or a reaction to an insect bite.*
Ignatia amara: The outpouring of affection you’ve received for Valentine’s Day is almost too much to handle. Ignatia relieves symptoms of stress with hypersensitivity to emotion, pain, smell, and stress, improved by distraction.*
Allium cepa: And since we’re smack in the middle of cold and flu season, have Allium cepa on hand. This single medicine relieves spasmodic sneezing and runny nose with an irritating, watery discharge, improved by fresh air.*
