There are so many suggestions going around the internet these days for everything to do with the pandemic. I have been seeing clients one-to-one and teaching a fun, at-home homeopathy class.
Basically, my regular routine has stayed the same.
Not everyone is so lucky.
I wanted to write this post, both for those in lonely isolation and those in isolation with others.
These are some practical ways in which to nourish yourself and your immune system in times of uncertainty and panic.
1) See your homeopath.
Yes, we are seeing clients remotely.
If you are not feeling like yourself, if this time is bringing out hidden anxieties and fears, then it's really the perfect time to have a full case taking. Feel like yourself again.
I am not afraid of Covid19, you don't have to be either.
We can also suggest additional remedies and protocols to support your immune system, adrenal system, nervous system, etc.
2) Rescue Remedy
This little darling is available at most pharmacies and natural health food stores,
If you are feeling panicked, stressed and anxious, take it four times a day for several days. This will tide you over until you see your homeopath and get a personalized remedy for you.
You can also take it in addition to your core remedy.
3) Castor Oil Packs
Now is the time! It feels as relaxing as going to a spa or lying on the beach... and is especially helpful right before bed, so that you can have a deeper and more restful sleep.
Start with 10-20 minutes if you've never done one before. If you are sick, menstruating, or pregnant, check with your healthcare practitioner before use.

4) Hug a tree
Yesterday I saw someone hugging a tree for ten minutes in the park beside my home. They walked away, gave the tree a little loving head nod/bow, and continued on their way. What a good idea if you can't hug a person right now!
5) Call a friend
If you are doing ok, busy at home with your family. Call a single friend! Don't give them any advice, just listen. They will appreciate knowing that you care.
