The power of Nature can be incredible and awe-inspiring. But unfortunately, there is a destructive side in the form of extreme weather hazards like floods, blizzards, and tornadoes. Depending on which part of the country you’re in, you’re probably all too familiar with the stress and nervousness that comes with preparing for stormy seasons year after year.
“Storms can make you feel a little powerless,” says Andrea Melendez, a homeopathic practitioner in Florida with first-hand experience living in a hurricane and flood zone.
And while it’s true that there’s nothing you can do to change the weather, there are a few things within your control. Having a safety plan and making sure you’re prepared with necessary supplies are both key. You can also empower yourself with homeopathy to manage symptoms in challenging and emotional situations.
“If you or your kids are feeling anxious or scared about impending weather, homeopathic remedies are great for easing that stress,” says Melendez. She recommends Argentum nitricum in cases of anticipatory fears. It relieves apprehension with a feeling of hurriedness like time is running out.* People who benefit from this medicine may also experience heartburn or stomachaches aggravated by their worries.
Aconitum napellus is another remedy that can come in handy. Although it’s commonly used to relieve high fever, Melendez says it’s also good for those who feel panicked or shaken up. Symptoms it addresses include nervousness, restlessness, and agitation.* (That’s why you’ll find Aconitum as one of the active ingredients in Boiron’s StressCalm!)
These single medicines from Boiron are made for both children and adults. They’re also compact and portable, so they’re easy to pack in a disaster go bag or emergency kit. Visit our Store Locator to find Argentum and Aconitum in a natural product store near you, or shop online at BoironUSA.com.
Homeopathic stress medicines are for occasional use. If symptoms persist for more than three days, it may warrant seeking the advice of a homeopathic practitioner who can customize a homeopathic prescription for you.
