School Angst

Dear Friend,

It’s that time of year again. Preparing to go back to school can be both exciting and fraught with anxiety for both students and moms. Whether it’s the first day of kindergarten or the first day of college, homeopathy can help ease the transition.



(Feel free to print this article and keep it with your kit or in your reference book)

Back to school season is just around the corner. No matter what age group your child falls into, there are hurdles that may make this time more difficult than it should be.

For young children just starting school there may be anxiety over separation from parents and fears of new situations away from the home environment – unfamiliar faces, public bathrooms, a new set of rules.

Although adolescents and teens may already be comfortable with the structure of school, they still face new challenges.

For them, it’s more about fitting in with their peers. They may be struggling with all the uncomfortable developments accompanying puberty, while facing a more demanding schedule of homework, exams and papers, and sports.

Throw in a bully or two and school can become a war zone in a child’s mind.

Lastly, our practically-grown-up college students may be leaving home for the first time.

Some suffer from homesickness.

Difficult coursework is enough of a stress, and when compounded by behavioral excesses (alcohol, staying up late, not eating well), poor health will often follow.

Luckily homeopathy provides us with an easy and effective tool kit to face these challenges head-on with confidence, knowing that we are laying down a strong foundation for our children’s future.

There are many remedies that would be of assistance, but I’ll mention a few to get you started.

And, as always, the remedy won’t work if it’s not correct for the person. It won’t hurt …..it just won’t act.

Calc phos6x

The best way to give this cell salt is 4 pills, 3 times every day for many days until the crisis is averted. Sometimes it’s needed long term, especially for growing children and petite girls.

  • outward manifestation of emotional upset. In other words, your child has physical ailments so as not to have to go to school – stomach aches, headaches, etc.

  • growing pains, anemia, headaches from studying

The following remedies in the 30th potency have different dosing directions:
4 pills, 4 times per day for one week…..but stop as soon as there’s improvement. Resume in a few weeks, but only if necessary.

Gelsemium 30

  • anxiety from anticipation
  • cowardly, weak, insecure
  • wants to hide and avoid stressful situations
  • shaking, stuttering, unable to think, meltdowns

Lycopodium 30

  • fear of failure and ridicule
  • acts confident but afraid on the inside
  • performs well despite nerves

Pulsatilla 30

  • clingy and needy, abandonment fears
  • helpful at school but angry and acts out at home

Ignatia 30

  • homesickness, disappointment, emotional and mental strain

Capsicum 30

  • homesickness with flushed skin and sore throat
  • worse from cold
  • doesn’t like changes in routine, difficulty adapting to new environment
  • peevish and sluggish
  • easily offended, quick to anger and obstinate
  • nostalgic longing for the past

And of course don’t forget Arnica montana for sports and playground injuries! Be sure to have a 200 potency of this on hand; a 30 is often not enough. (The kit we sell in our office has both.)

When my sons left for college, besides books and some quality snacks, such as homemade beef jerky, they knew to pack their most important don’t- leave-home-without-it possession—their homeopathy kits.

They knew that they could call me anytime, offer me their symptoms and they would always have the remedy right at hand.

Through the years, we successfully averted colds, sprained ankles, a dental abscess, a nasty bee sting and the angst and fatigue that often results from cramming and heavy coursework.

No college infirmary. No antibiotics. No drugs. No thank you.

With one little box of homeopathic remedies, we cured within minutes, hours or a few days, depending on the severity.

Kids, homeopathy, preparedness. It’s the only way to parent, no matter how old they are!

It comes in a durable, hard plastic box, which will last for years.

Included are 91 Remedies in the 30c potency and 9 remedies in the 200c potency. Each remedy comes in a ½ dram glass bottle. This kit includes a handy pamphlet of indications.

Shipping and Handling: approx. $14.50 and there is no tax on any purchase. We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

Although the FDA requires expiration dates on remedies, they will truly last and be fully effective for decades and even longer if properly handled.
