We are all right now experiencing the most incredible times of change and for many emotional stress, loneliness, isolation and grief. This is the time when you can turn to Homeopathy which may provide you with excellent support.
And don’t forget to take your immune support remedies (check here) and be quick to address symptoms.
Ignatia helps us to cope with all sorts of upheavals and losses in life. The suffering is from disappointment and loss; separation from friends and family and our work. This grief can express as very changeable and paradoxical symptoms; there may be bouts of crying, laughing, yawning, sighing and difficulty falling asleep. There can be a lump sensation in the throat, an empty hollow feeling and disturbances to the appetite, be it over eating or under eating.
Other remedies may be better indicated when we can’t cope with the emotional strain or are unable to cope with the stress, this includes issues from loss of work, losing contact with friends, or a disappointment in something that we have invested our energy. Consider 30c potencies for a deeper action however 6c is fine if the picture fits.
