Homeopathy For Back-to-School Anxiety

Updated: Oct 22, 2020

Oh how I wish I had Homeopathy for my back-to-school anxiety as a kid!

I was a kid who struggled with back-to-school on a good day, so I can’t imagine how I would have felt if I was in the shoes of kids today.

Or the parents, or the teachers.

Luckily, we have homeopathy.

There’s TONS of remedies for anxiety, but here’s a few top notch pals for back to school. (For parents, teachers, and truly anyone else, too).

Aconite for fright

For acute panic, restlessness, fear of death, fear of being in a crowded room. Shortness of breath, palpitations, rapid onset. Good for intense, sudden panic, shock, or fright.

Gelsemium for anticipation

Anticipatory anxiety with trembling, nausea/tummy aches/diarrhea, fatigue, weakness, sadness, desire to hide. Think of anxiety like stage fright! Also good for ailments from bad news - especially if they produce the above symptoms.

Pulsatilla for the clinger

Separation anxiety, wants consolation and feels better with it. May appear shy and quiet but also very sweet and kind. Level 10 Clinger. Weepy, sad, better when held/consoled, fear of being alone.

Arsenicum for control

Anxious, responsible, desire for control, great concern for health, may have obsessive behaviours. Restless, fidgety anxiety, but may also be very tired. Fear of disease, being alone, for the health of their family. (This has been a major remedy for fear during the pandemic)

Ignatia for grief

Though you may not think you're grieving - we grieve little things every day. Last kiddo off to kindergarten, grieving the "normal" first day you expected, grieving the los of friends when moving to a new school. Ignatia is great to support that, especially when there is: sobbing (or trying not to), sighing, up & down moods, easily offended, aversion to consolation.

Homeopathy helps you feel what you need to feel, and then it just flows through. No suppression, no reliance. Just makes things a little easier, with a little more connection and room for you to be your authentic self.

If you’re not sure what to choose, contact me for a consultation and let’s find the best remedy to support your healing and growth.

When you support the little things, they don’t turn into big things - that’s preventative medicine.
