Homeopathy for Allergies

If you have ever been curious about homeopathy and its uses, now may be the time to try it. I am a huge fan of homeopathic remedies and used them to relieve my allergy symptoms when I moved to the Washington DC area. Having never suffered from itchy eyes and runny nose in the past, my first spring in this area really did a number on me. Homeopathic remedies provided relief without any side effects (drowsiness or alertness… read insomnia).

Boiron USA is one of the leading homeopathic companies in the world and they carry remedies for all sorts of conditions. But if you would like to know more about allergies and how to control not only the symptoms but also the actual reaction, take a look at this very educational tutorial by Boiron. It provides insight about this safe healing method, along with proper use of homeopathy for the relief of allergy symptoms.

Village Green Apothecary carries an extensive inventory of Boiron remedies for your needs.

Teething Tablet Recall

Hylands has voluntarily recalled their homeopathic Teething Tablet. According to their website, this is following “an abundance of caution after the company and the FDA conducted a thorough review of the company’s adverse event reports and manufacturing processes. Together, we have identified manufacturing processes of Teething Tablets that can be improved to ensure uniformity in dosage. We also believe there are opportunities to refine the production, packaging and testing protocols on this product.”

Personally, I used Hylands Teething Tablets and Boiron Camilia for my son’s teething pain, instead of acetaminophen or ibuprofen, and had great success. If you want a natural alternative to Hylands, Boiron’s product is an option, as is Hyland’s Teething Gel, which has not been affected by the recall.
