This month we’re focussing on water – and while for those of us in the Western Cape that’s been a focus of ours on a macro level as we do all we can to avoid Day Zero – we’re talking about the water in our bodies.
With high summer heat and humidity levels, some of us struggle with water retention and this is where homeopathy can play an excellent role in helping to balance out water in our system.
Fluid imbalance 6C is a homeopathic remedy that helps to re-distribute and balance fluids throughout the body.
If the body needs to lose fluids (ie: has fluid retention) the remedy will have a diuretic effect otherwise it will hold on to water, distributing it as needed.
This remedy is very useful for fluid retention or oedema, swollen feet during flights and pregnancy.
However, it’s also useful for the opposite condition – that of dehydration due to vomiting and diarrhoea, profuse sweating or heat stroke.
It’s also useful for endurance athletes in the prevention and treatment of dehydration.
Fluid imbalance 6C remedies any condition where water is out of balance.
Those who suffer from migraines can benefit too by using this remedy as it helps to redistribute the accumulation of fluid behind the eyes, which cause pressure and pain during migraine.
It’s best to alternate this remedy with Migraine 30C until the condition resolves.
