As our kids are headed into the start of a brand new school year, they may experience feelings of worry or anxiety about going to school. These emotions could be stirred by things such as changing schools (i.e. either from a move or from moving to a new building like middle school to high school), navigating the school building, performing well in their studies, building new friendships, or simply not being at home as much as they were during summer.
Homeopathy can help you navigate the ups and downs of this milestone. Below are a few of the top remedies:
Gelsemium 6c or 30c: This is a top choice for anticipatory anxiety. This remedy shines when the person feels anxious before an event such as a first day, exam, or performance.
Argentum Nitricum 30c: Another remedy for anticipatory anxiety, nervous and they are likely to have diarrhea and flatulence with their anxiety.
Aconitum Napellus 200c: This remedy is used in shocking events or situations. Panic-style attacks with a beating heart, the sensation of not being able to get enough air, and feeling faint can also be aided by this remedy.
Pulsatilla 30c is an excellent remedy that suits children who are weepy, timid, shy, and clingy. It helps them adjust to change, separate from their parents, and gain confidence and independence.
Ignatia 200c can be helpful for homesickness, sadness, and emotional upsets. It’s especially useful when moving to a new school or city.
Bach Flower Essences can also provide an additional layer of support (follow the bottle’s dosing instructions).
Aspen to ease those fears of the unknown and encourage feelings of security.
Mimulus for fear from known reasons. Encourages quiet courage and an ability to enjoy the moment.
Rock Rose for courage. For times of terror and fear – when it all gets just too much. Rock Rose helps you to dig deep and find your courage.
Lastly, let’s not forget about the parents. We need support too.
We too are adjusting to a change in routine. Perhaps our child is starting school for the first time or our teenager is leaving home for college, we will also be feeling the emotional impact of these events. Homeopathy is here to help you adjust to these changes so that the whole family can seamlessly transition into the new school year.
Allow Homeopathy to help turn fears and trepidation into joy and enthusiasm. It’s a win-win for everyone!
