Homeopathy is a gentle, natural healing system that works with the body to relieve symptoms, restore vitality, and improve overall health. It is a federally recognized form of medicine and regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Homeopathy can help strengthen the body to fight short-term illnesses like colds, flus, earaches, sore throats, and more. For chronic conditions such as asthma, depression, autism, or arthritis.
Homeopathic remedies are made by homeopathic pharmacies according to HPUS guidelines, and they do not cause drowsiness, are not habit-forming or toxic. The remedies have no known side effects or known drug interactions, plus they’re environmentally friendly, cruelty-free, and derived from natural sources.
Affordable over-the-counter remedies are available at health food stores, homeopathic pharmacies, online retailers, and even some traditional grocery stores and pharmacies.
And now, after knowing all this, how can I use homeopathy to improve my health?
First, look at the symptoms. Pay special attention to anyone who is unusual or exceptionally strong. Notice if there has been a change in mood and what behaviors or environmental factors seem to improve or worsen symptoms. You may want to write your observations.
Second, choose the remedy. Take the list of symptoms and compare it to the descriptions of the recommended remedies for short-term illness. Choose the remedy that best suits your symptoms, keeping in mind that not all symptoms have to coincide.
And finally, wait and watch. Once you select a remedy, give a dose (3-5 granules) under the tongue and then wait and watch. If you do not improve at all within a few hours, give another dose. If after three doses there are no changes, it is time to try a different remedy or contact a healthcare professional.
Homeopathic remedies come in various concentrations, also known as potencies. Stems 6c, 12c, and 30c are smooth and perfect for home use. A power of 30c is ideal for most short-term illnesses or injuries.The goal is to find the lowest dose of a remedy that works. Start with the lowest potency and proceed only if the remedy stops working.
