Christmas time – overdoing it

overdoing it at Christmas

Christmas is a time for over indulgence.  In the depths of winter we take advantage of the excuse to eat more rich food, meet up with family and friends who we may not see very often and stay up late.  Add to that the pressure of buying the perfect gift for everyone, and having the perfect Christmas day and we can end up stressed on lots of levels and in need of some remedies!  Homeopaths historically use for relief:

Nux Vomica
Over doing it on rich food, alcohol and burning the candle at both ends, leading to hangovers, irritability, stomach upset and headaches.

Indigestion with bloating and pain,  Pressing on the tummy or bending double helps.

Sense of being bullied, put down, humiliated which is being tolerated but causes seething inside, eventually may lead to angry outbursts or becoming ill or both.  Commonly seen when spending enforced days with family over Christmas where this is an unresolved issue.
