Have you ever wanted to make your own natural first aid kit, or just get started in finding more natural alternatives to take of yourself.

With the rise of the natural health industry there are a ton of studies proving and showing that choosing natural health options can be better for your health. I for one know and do not want to put anything in my body that will cause a ton of other symptoms like headaches, nausea, stomach cramps and all that ooky stuff, unless I totally have too.

Who wants all that right.

Let's start by talking about what homeopathy is and how it can help you to heal yourself naturally, then later on show you some simple products that you can use for your family.

Homeopathy is an alternative form of medicine that has been around for years to treat just about anything you can think of. While in modern times the use of natural first aid kits, and homeopathy may seem suspicious, in earlier times it was the main way of doing of things. While the western world is finally catching on to the world of natural healing, it has been used worldwide for years.

Homeopathic medicine is based on three basic principles. The biggest principle of homeopathy is that it treats the main issue at hand on each problem. Instead of treating based on the disease doctors” think” you have, treatment is done based on the symptoms you know you have. The second principle is that there is only one treatment, not two or even ten like a traditional doctor might give you. The third principle is that everything is given in extremely small doses.

To treat yourself homeopathicly, you must figure out all the symptoms. Once you know your symptoms, you find a substance that causes the exact same set of symptoms and take a small amount of it. Because you are only taking a very small amount, the substance not only doesn’t harm you, it’s said to cure you, generally long term or even permanently.

When most people hear about homeopathy, their initial reaction is “no way!” Treating symptoms with something that causes your symptoms seems totally counter intuitive, but it’s a concept that’s used in modern medicine as well as more ancient cures. Shots commonly used to treat allergies contain a small amount of whatever you’re allergic to. Many vaccines contain a small amount of the disease they’re designed to protect against.

While homeopathic medicine is not only considered effective, it has many benefits over modern medicine. Like many other natural medical treatments, most homeopathic remedies are totally natural. While this doesn’t necessarily make them safe, these remedies tend to cause fewer side effects, have little drug interactions, and are generally better for your overall health.

Homeopathic medications are also considered better for your body because they work with it. Many modern medicines work to suppress symptoms like fever or coughing. These symptoms are the body’s natural ways to get rid of disease. Instead of suppressing symptoms, homeopathic medicine works to cure the problem itself while addressing the specific symptoms.

When the right treatment is found, homeopathy is considered very effective. The big problem is that just like there are thousands of prescriptions and over the counter drugs, there are also thousands of homeopathic remedies as well. And if you don’t pick exactly the right one, it won’t work.

While you can buy homeopathic remedies over the counter, just like herbal and other alternative medicines, that doesn’t mean it’s 100% safe to treat yourself. If you’re serious about this treatment you should speak to a doctor who has experience in alternative medicine.

However in the meantime if you want to get started learning about natural healing and natural first kits I suggest you read.

You know what, I’ve have been sitting here this morning thinking about how long I have not posted anything to the blog. Well I have been thinking about it actually quite a bit this week, but we all know that sometimes life gets in the way of certain things and some things end up taking the back burner.

To say the least.

It’s not that I have not wanted to post anything it is just that I have been so busy, up to my neck in things I have had to get done. My family and I ended up moving changing towns to be closer to my son’s school and get back closer to family and friends. Where we were living at before was starting to get to boring to me and not being able to see my family was starting to bother me. So we decided to move and found a home in a great area, and the kids are happier and everything is working out as planned.

But we all know with moving comes a lot of things you have to do like un-pack and get everything situated around the house and with four small boys that can take forever and a day. When I moved before I had a lot more help and things got a done a lot faster. However it did not work out that way this time, and then to top it all off my son ended up breaking his arm the very first night we moved into the new home.

So as you can see I have been pretty busy.

Things are getting back to normal now after the move and the holidays, and I have a lot of material lined up for the site and podcast show.

So don’t you go anywhere!

Any how to change pace for a sec I have been reading a book call in The Defense of Food – ( An Eater Manifesto) by Michael Pollan, I know his last name sounds like it should be a part of bee company or something. But the entire book is absolutely amazing and one that all should read if they are truly interested in how to eat for true health and enjoyment. It covers everything from the history of food to big corporations today and how we have gotten away from real food and really why America is as fat as we are. And what you can do about it, to re-cover you own health but also to establish a better one for your family.

There is so much to this book, and I will have another post up soon with a full review on my thoughts on the book really sooooon……. So stay tuned for that one.

P.S. Don’t forget to leave a comment I would to hear your thoughts and what you have been up to.
