A Healthy New Year: Homeopathy for Colds, Flu and Beyond

Friday, 11 February 2011 16:05

By Carrie Stearns, PDHom.

boironJanuary is here... the holiday time is over, and the winter stillness has a chance to reach us. There is something about a new year that holds a sense of possibility. More than any other time of year, we pause. In our culture of overdoing, this pause can be very significant. It can be a time of small new beginnings or a moment when the seed of something bigger takes hold. Often it is a time when we turn our attention to something about our health. Maybe we simply see that making a promise to exercise regularly needs to be part of our new year or perhaps something more challenging needs our attention. Health can always be a place to strive toward. Illness, whether it be a winter cold or something more chronic and troublesome, offers an opportunity to pay attention and look at how we live our lives in a new way. Homeopathy is a healing modality that can treat acute illnesses like colds and flu and help us to address the far deeper issues of where chronic illness begins.

Aromatherapy for Winter Well-Being

Winter is just around the corner and it is an important time to pay close attention to your health and well-being on both the inside as well as the outside of your body. Using pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils at the first sign of distress will support your body to stay in a healthy state. Essential oils penetrate the body through the nose and skin, with the olfactory glands being the most direct route.

Incorporating essential oils into your daily routine will help keep your immune system stronger, shorten your recovery time from illness and uplift your spirits when the winter weather keeps you inside a bit more than you would like. Pure therapeutic essential oils have the ability to work with the body on a spiritual, mental and physical plane to bring the body to a place of balance and harmony.

Exploring Shamanic Energy Medicine

Several years ago, I wrote in my journal, “I want to study with Alberto Villoldo.” At the time, I really had no idea whom Alberto was, or the course of study that he could offer me. I saw his name somewhere, perhaps he was referenced in an article that I may have read. I tucked that journal away and forgot what I wrote that day.... or so I thought.

Two years ago, my life took a fast course in transformation, through the healing of a physical condition requiring major surgery. Soon after I recovered from surgery, I decided to pursue the study of energy medicine, and, big surprise, Alberto’s name showed up again. As I perused the course descriptions offered in his program, Healing the Light Body, I realized that I had been seeking this information for a very long time. After I registered for my first class with Alberto, I decided to clean out some boxes tucked away in a closet, and out popped my old journal. I found that entry stating my desire to study with Alberto, which I had written several years before. So, shamanism chose me, and it has been an incredible adventure.

858323sunscreenIt's time to protect yourself from the sun's rays. We've got an array of safe, healthy sunscreen brands for all ages.

Here in Wellness we're constantly looking for safe, healthy products for you, and our search extends to sun care. How, in the sea of sunscreens, do you make an informed decision? Shop at GreenStar! We stock a vast array of sunscreens that use minerals instead of chemicals with questionable data attached to them. Your body will far prefer zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to block those UV rays. We choose awesome brands — Badger, Goddess Garden, and the new Caribbean Solutions and Elemental Herbs — all of which have top ratings from the Environmental Working Group. They use non-nano minerals, which means larger particles that won't absorb into the skin, and thus cannot cause a transdermal mineral overdose. Not only are our sunscreens healthy for adults and kids alike, they're also biodegradable and reef-safe (for you more coastal travelers). So stop by the Co-op on your way to the lake or swimming hole. Your skin — and the whole ecosystem — will thank you!

    Many of us have accepted for years that pollution of all sorts was a problem wreaking havoc on our internal and external environments. We have watched many things get worse. If you were like me, though I tried to be conscious, I also had blinders on to exactly how bad things had gotten. I preferred to maintain a certain comfort level, and to keep that feeling of being overwhelmed at bay.
