A Homeopathic Substitute for Tums
My step-son turned five the other day and we had a party for him. My sister-in-law said she couldn’t possibly eat a thing because she had Mexican food right before and had awful indigestion. She then asked me for some Tums.
I have Tums.
Here’s the thing though, other people’s misfortunes when it comes to physical ailments are viewed differently by me. They are viewed as my window of opportunity to demonstrate how well homeopathic remedies work.
So, I got out the Tums, and I said she could have some… in ten minutes.
First, I told her, she had to try the Hyland’s Colic Tabs for her gas and indigestion. She’s always a good sport, so she agreed without hesitation. I gave her a couple of the Hyland’s Colic Tabs and then I sat the bottle of Tums in front of the poor girl. I reminded her that she could have some in ten minutes.
A more caring person, would probably have just given her both, but I didn’t want her to be able to thank the Tums when she felt better right away. So, the Tums sat there on the table, while we all chatted.
Less than ten minutes later, she pushed the Tums aside. She said, “You know what, I’m feeling all better. I guess I don’t even need the Tums anymore.”
I was thrilled.
I’d love to say I was thrilled because I am so compassionate towards human suffering and I was happy she was feeling better. The truth is, indigestion isn’t generally something I feel super sorry for people about. It is what it is. She had Mexican food and got indigestion. It happens all the time and we usually all get over it in a few hours or so. The reason I was thrilled is because I had before me, four adult witnesses to the remarkable healing effectiveness of homeopathic remedies.
So, the moral of the story is, before grabbing the Tums, grab your baby’s Hyland’s Colic Tabs, and then know first-hand how much they sooth your baby.
