Ouch! Don’t Touch.

Dear Friend,

You know the feeling--the burning redness and blistering skin from spending too much time in the hot July sun. How do you get relief?

Homeopathy, of course!

Sunshine is important to our health and those of us living in the North need to be particularly mindful of our need to replenish stores of Vitamin D that nature lovingly provides.

So soak up the sun.

Know when to stop.

And rest assured the proper homeopathic remedy will bring relief if you lose track of sun time.



Ouch! Don’t touch!

Sunburns, like chicken wings, can be mild, medium or hot! Keep the following remedies handy as the summer progresses to keep the heat down.

First and foremost, never leave for a long weekend or vacation without your homeopathy kit. If you don’t own one, contact our office at (716) 941-1045. We have a selection to fit all budgets.

When confronted with sunburn, the first remedy I turn to is Cantharis 30.

It’s useful for all sorts of burns including scalds and chemical burns. Use a potency that matches the severity of the burn. This means the more severe the burn, the higher the potency.

For mild sunburn a 6c, 12c or 30c is likely to do the trick. For a more serious case with severe pain, chills, and blistering, a 200c may be needed. But first seek advice from a seasoned homeopath.

When treating an acute condition such as sunburn, use this general rule: the more severe the pathology, the more frequently the remedy needs to be repeated.

So if the sunburn is moderate --very red but without blistering-- and you’re using a 30c potency, you might offer it every 30-60 minutes.

Use pain as your guide to determine how often to dose.

If after giving Cantharis there is no improvement, consider two other remedies.

Urtica urens is the remedy of choice if the pain has a prickly, stingy or itchy sensation. In fact, if the sensation is of this nature from the beginning, then start with this remedy and don’t bother with Cantharis.

For a deep, severe burn, use Causticum. The more severe the burn, the more likely that Causticum is the correct remedy. Causticum is also handy for old burns that have taken a long time to heal.

You should see a reduction in intensity of symptoms within 30-40 minutes of taking the correct remedy.

I also like to use cell salts in alteration with higher potency remedies.

For instance, if you have determined that Cantharis 30 is the correct remedy, then alternate Kali mur 6x with Cantharsis 30 every 30 minutes or so to bring down the discomfort and pain.

As always, stop when there’s improvement.

Topical ointments or tinctures can also be soothing. Try coconut oil, aloe vera gel or Calendula tincture.

But to be honest, you’ll likely find the homeopathic remedy is all that you need.

Sunburn isn’t a day at the beach. But don’t worry. Homeopathy, as always, has the solution!

One more tip…

Sunscreen? Toss it out! If you wouldn’t or couldn’t eat what you put on your skin, it shouldn’t be used.

Read the ingredients.

If they don’t read like a list of ingredients in a good recipe book, then toss ‘em out.

Your liver, the filtering organ, will thank you.

What’s the solution?

Cover up with a sunhat, a t-shirt in the pool and seek shade during times of scorching sun.

My husband is blonde, blonde, blonde, an avid sailor and hasn’t worn sunscreen in 30 years. (Not since we met!)

So my rule is…… act sensibly, not chemically.

Aloe has been used since ancient times and has recently enjoyed a rediscovery and subsequent popularity.

The gel remains thick when the leaf is first cut, but after a few minutes an enzymatic reaction causes it to become liquid and freely run out. This makes it easy to apply to sunburns and minor injuries.

Aloe plants are easily grown in a sunny window, and aloe gel is commercially available making it portable and suitable for your first aid kit.

Great for not only sunburn and other skin issues, but also for parasites...but that’s a topic for another issue!
