Altitude sickness: how to treat it with homeopathy

Watch Sarah. Keen to summit Mount Whitney [14.505ft] after homeopathic treatment for adrenal fatigue, she wanted to know remedies for altitude sickness …
So, Here’s a wonderful lady I nursed through adrenal fatigue as part of my adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism study.  She has recovered from adrenal fatigue and is back hiking.   After training again she recently summited Mount Whitney in the US, with a summit height of 14,505ft.   I think you can say that’s a pretty good cure for someone who was truly incapacitated.   Just before she went she asked about altitude sickness.  Is there a homeopathic remedy?  And I told her she could use coca [just like the Peruvians do] … but use it in homeopathic potency.  That is seriously easy to carry!   In the USA you can order it from  In the UK you can order from Get them to suggest what potency you might need, but I think I recommended Sarah a simple 30c or 200c.  With 30c you take a bit more often.  With 200c you space about 1 hour apart and stop when you feel better.  You can take a top up dose a few times a day to ward off altitude sickness if you are up there for long.   Use precautions though!  Don’t use this to push yourself into a place of danger.  Keep an eye on how you are feeling and have a contingency plan.  All the usual climbers safety rules! Here, you get to see Sarah celebrating just before summiting … letting me know that she did well with the coca.

Sports Recovery! Bounce Back Like Bolt.

Usain Bolt, despite suffering from scoliosis competes as a top athlete and ran at the 2016 Rio olympics after an injury earlier in the year because his homeopathic doctor helps him heal and maintain his body.

I had a question from Chris, a marathon runner, about natural alternatives for sports recovery.  He’s interested in natural nutrition & I’m guessing he is interested in bouncing back after races with good muscle, bone & joint repair.

I’m gonna smack him with some excellent homeopathic and tissue salt remedies to support muscle, bone and joint repair, later in this post. Meanwhile, there are some nutritional needs (beyond the obvious) that may be accentuated in runners and sports people.  You can meet these with careful eating:

essential for runners

Homeopathic remedies for Muscle, Bone & Joint Repair. 

Bruising & Aching: 
Arnica: can help to prevent those post-race muscle aches by limiting inflammation and disbursing bruising very quickly.
Take 1 arnica 30c pill straight after running, and another 12 hours later.  If you have run a marathon, do this every 12 hours for 3 days.  Standard, strenuous running, two doses will do.

Shin Splints/ Stress Fractures:
Symphytum 6c:  Speeds healing of fractures.  Take 3 times a day for a week and then take a break for 2 weeks.  If you are running a LOT, and tend to suffer with shin splints, you may need to repeat this remedy in cycles of 1 week on and 2 weeks off.

Check your shoes!  You need new running shoes after 300-500 miles of wear.  Make sure they suit your running gait too.  Good quality shoes are a must for bone and joint health.  Have them professionally fitted.
