Although there seems to be a little less travel this year, there are still many people who are taking shorter trips by both car and air during the holidays. Often they are affected by motion sickness. Here are a few thoughts of how homeopathy can help when traveling.
First, if you feel a little anxious, anticipating that upcoming trip and what will happen before you travel, you know what I am talking about. You have an uneasy feeling in the pit of your stomach and you are just not your calm balanced self. In this case try Gelsemium 30C, twice a day. It is soothing and will calm down the nerves and emotions. This is also good before taking an exam or before going on stage. Years ago I was in a small dance company, and remember a young friend who took Gelsemium before performing a solo in the Arabian Dance in the Nutcracker. It did the trick, she remained calm and performed beautifully.
Another remedy that works when you are in the midst of traveling is Tabacum. No one wants to be uncomfortable in the car or on a plane. It’s no fun to sit the whole ride holding a bag up to your mouth— just in case. When you feel nauseous and icy cold, the remedy to take is Tabacum 30C. An alternative product to try is Motion Sickness, a formula by Hyland’s, found in local pharmacies and drug stores. It is easy to find and give to family members.
These are just a few ideas for travel. Travel does not always go the way we want it to go, but with homeopathy, we can make travel smooth and easy for ourselves and our families.
