Common Ailments

This section aims to provide a list of common ailments for which we provide natural treatments, as a resource where you can find out about how to address them.

  • Aches, Bumps & Bruises

    Aches, bumps and bruises are part of everyday life – at any age. They’re often your body’s response to adopting a more physically active lifestyle, or simply a normal part of getting older. Nelsons offers a range of skin-soothing products for topical application, so you can approach each day with confidence. 

  • Babies and Children's Health

    Nelsons offers a range of quality baby and children products to help during the development stages of your little ones. For example if you are experiencing sleepless nights due to your grizzly baby teething then try Nelsons® Teetha®, a homeopathic remedy for the relief of the symptoms of teething. 

  • Colds and Flu

    Colds are an all too regular occurrence, with children catching around seven to ten colds a year, compared with two to three for adults¹. If you’re generally fit and healthy you should be able to manage the symptoms of colds and flu with bed rest, regular hydration and over the counter products.

  • Everyday Stresses

    Stress is increasingly common in our everyday lives, whether caused by 'the little things' such as bad traffic, or the bigger events in life such as exams, births or weddings. Stress impacts people in different ways, but often affects how you feel, think, behave and how your body works. There are many signs of stress including tiredness, difficulties sleeping, loss of appetite or difficulty concentrating. Taking active steps to help manage stress allows you to get the most out of life. These steps might include exercise, yoga or mediation, or simply taking brief time out of a situation when things feel overwhelming. RESCUE Remedy is a combination of five Bach™ Original Flower Remedies that can help comfort and reassure you when you need to return to a positive outlook. 

  • First Aid

    Whilst we strive to prevent injuries by being aware of hazards and taking precautions, accidents and mishaps do still happen. For those minor mishaps, Nelsons has a range of topical creams.

  • Natural Skincare

    Your skin is your largest organ, accounting for around 16% of your body weight¹. While a healthy diet is an important factor in the health of your skin, so are the products you use to care for it. That’s why Nelsons have a range of natural healthcare products available for you to choose from.

  • Sleep

    A good night’s sleep is vital to our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. However, many people have problems sleeping at some point in their life and it's thought that a third of people in the UK have bouts of sleeplessness¹. Sleeplessness can take on a number of forms, from struggling to switch off and get to sleep at night, to waking during the night. Whatever its form, many wish to take active steps to help them get a better night’s sleep. These steps may include avoiding caffeine before bedtime, ensuring your bedroom is the right temperature, or taking a warm bath or shower to help relax. 

    You may wish to consider RESCUE Night if you have trouble switching off repetitive thoughts. RESCUE Night contains the famous RESCUE flower essences with added White Chestnut essence, which is traditionally use to help switch off those frustrating, repetitive thoughts that may get between you and a natural night’s sleep.
