Homeopathy and Sporting Spectators

If you were fortunate enough to have been successful with the Olympic ticket ballot earlier this year, you are probably looking forward to watching some of the world’s best sportsmen and women take to their respective ‘sporting stages’ later in the summer. And with many of the events taking place outside, spectators are strongly advised to consider the best methods of preventing sunstroke and dehydration before they arrive at the Games.

Watching a sporting event often requires the spectator to sit for long periods of time in the same place, often in direct sunshine with little or no shade to shield them from the heat. With few opportunities to get up, move around and keep the blood flow moving, it is recommended that spectators keep hydrated by drinking fluids regularly (avoiding alcohol), and protect themselves with sun cream, re applying frequently. 

Additionally, to avoid pins and needles and any circulatory problems, small exercises whilst sitting, such as moving ankles or shoulders around in a circular motion, can be extremely helpful.

Despite these preventative measures, if you do happen to find yourself unwell due to the heat and sun that you have experienced, below are a few remedies which may be able to help. Please note, however, that these are only a guideline and so consult with a homeopath for a more specific course of action. 

Alternatively, if you do not have any remedies to hand and are suffering from sunburn, try applying cold tea, cool whole milk or plain yoghurt to the affected areas. To relieve a throbbing headache from excess sun exposure and sunstroke try:

Belladonna 30c 
Glonoinium 30c

To ease sunburn, gently rub the following creams into the areas which have been exposed and are causing discomfort and irritation:
Aloe Vera
