A little or a lot? Pick the right dosage for homeopathic remedies

Ok, you’ve got a cold or just banged your knee hard. What’s the best dosage for a homeopathic remedy? To figure out the best dosage, you need to consider many factors: whether the condition is acute (sudden onset) or chronic (present for a longer time), the severity of pain and even your age.

The subtlety behind homeopathy stands out when we assess the dosages required for various situations. In general, acute situations warrant lower dosages given more frequently, while chronic situations call for higher potencies given less frequently.

Controlling acute conditions

Typical acute scenarios include a blow to the body, the onset of a cold or an illness or injury that has just happened. In these cases, administer frequent low doses of a remedy until you get relief of the symptoms.

When the school nurse called me to say my son’s head had banged into a schoolmate’s head on the playground, I grabbed my arnica montana pellets and ointment and drove over to the school. His teacher said she sent him to the nurse after his face swelled up. They had been applying ice to his left cheekbone. After talking with Joey for a minute, I gave him three pellets of 30c arnica and smeared a layer of arnica ointment on the affected area. I continued that course of treatment every hour until he went to bed that night. Next morning, there was no indication of injury.

Assemble a Homeopathic First Aid Kit

By Susy Goins

Your child’s scream rips through your meditative peeling of lunch apples. “Mom! I slammed into the wall!”

“Mommy’s coming!” you holler, dashing by the medicine chest to pull out a few tubes of homeopathic remedies. You are prepared for this (and many other emergencies) with your own handy-dandy homeopathic first aid kit.

Life’s bumps, bruises and burns are easier to handle if you have a few remedies on hand to administer as the need arises. So tuck these and other remedies that you find especially useful in with the bandages and witch hazel. Here’s a jumping off point for some of the common needs of children.

Aconite 30C works best for the first symptoms of colds, flu, fever, restlessness, throat complaints, anxiety and fear. The early stages of croup can benefit from Aconite. This is the sudden onset remedy. If you miss that, then you’ll need to consider other remedies.

AGE 30C is a combination remedy using Aconite, Gelsemium and Euphrasia recommended for colds and flu. One dose every two weeks will reduce the incidence of colds and flu.

Apis mellifica 30C is excellent for insect bites and hives.

How Does Homeopathy Work Anyway?

By Susy Parker Goins

Homeopathy can seem like a completely foreign concept to those of us brought up on mainstream, allopathic medicine. The principles of homeopathy are easily understood, however, by even novice users. With a little study and good reference materials, you can understand and apply homeopathic medicine to your family’s health.

The four fundamental laws of homeopathy — the Law of Similars, the Law of Single Remedy, the Law of Minimum Dose and the Law of Direction of Cure – form the philosophical basis of this powerful healing modality. Each law identifies an aspect of homeopathy that sets it apart from other healing philosophies.

As like is to like

The Law of Similars, so named by homeopathy’s founder, Samuel Hahnemann, has been known for thousands of years. Physicians discussed theories on symptoms substances caused and were capable of curing as early as the time of Hippocrates and the Oracle at Delphi.

It was Hahnemann who began the process he called “proving,” taking notes on the reactions a healthy person (himself) had in response to a given substance. For example, the symptoms he developed after drinking cinchona bark extract were similar to the symptom picture for malaria. The treatment for malaria is quinine, a product from cinchona bark. Hahnemann drew the conclusion that if cinchona bark can cause the symptoms, it should be able to resolve them too.

Relevance of Arsenicum Homeopathic Remedy - Insomnia Treatment

Though the term insomnia is used loosely to refer to any kind of temporary disruption in sleep patterns, clinical insomnia is much more than that. It is a sleep disorder that occurs due to depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or other such psychological conditions. Some of the key symptoms of insomnia are

1. Extreme tiredness
2. Mental exertion
3. Fear and anxiety
4. Hyperactivity

Many people who suffer from depression and insomnia seek natural remedies for depressionsince conventional drugs are known to have many side effects.

Homeopathy is an alternative medical discipline that is natural and believes that a disease is a pathological disturbance in the body. It uses natural substances in a highly diluted state to treat the disorder. The principle that homeopathy works on is “let likes cure likes”. This basic principle assumes that a substance that causes a disease in its undiluted form shall cure the same disease in the diluted form.

Given the individualistic and customized approach that homeopathy has, different treatments are meted out to individuals for the same disease based on their characteristic traits, personality and condition. The Materia medica lists remedies along with all the possible symptoms that it can be used for.

Homeopathic Remedy - Hypothyroidism

The thyroid gland maybe small in size but improper functioning can have a major affect on the overall health of an individual. The thyroid synthesizes, stores and secretes two main thyroid hormones - thyroxine, commonly called T4 and triodothyroxine, commonly called T3.

Your thyroid secretes a mixture of T4 and T3 in the ratio 90:10. Both of them regulate your body’s metabolism and certain other important biological functions. An overactive thyroid, which secretes too much hormone, is known as hyperthyroid. Hypothyroid is the opposite condition where there is an inadequate secretion of these hormones.

The symptoms of hypothyroid are general in nature but these can have a long lasting effect on your health. Most common symptoms are fatigue, depression, lack of concentration, difficulty in losing weight, weight gain, sensitiveness to cold and hot, hair loss, constipation, scanty or lack of menstrual periods, infertility, coarse skin, reactive hypoglycemia, yellow palms, puffiness around the eyes or the ankles (fluid retention), increased levels of serum cholesterol and hair loss (especially on the eyebrows).

Homeopathy - What Is It?

Homeopathy has been practiced for generations before modern medicine, with herbs and potions. The word is easily translated. Homios, coming from Greek, means “like.” Homeopathy then is simply the medical practice of treating like with like. Who hasn’t heard of using “the hair of the dog that bit you” to make you feel better?

The principle was known to Hippocrates and Paracelsus; however, the main debt of those who follow homeopathy is to Samuel Hahnemann, M.D., a great doctor of the eighteenth century. Dr. Hahnemann, appalled by the existing medical practices, which so often did more harm than good, sought a method that would be safe, gentle, and effective. He believed that human beings have a capacity for healing themselves, and that the symptoms of disease reflect the individual’s struggle to overcome the forces of antagonistic to live. The physician’s work must be to discover, and if possible to remove, the cause of the trouble, and stimulate the vital healing forces of nature.

Using Homeopathy to Control Asthma

Asthma is a chronic condition that affects millions of people all over the world. Studies show that 1 in 7 children, and 1 in 12 adults, suffer from asthma. Thought the severity of the attacks can vary�it can be mild and easily treated, or lead to weeks of hospitalization�anyone who suffers from the condition can testify to how it can impair their quality of life.

In an asthma attack, our ability to breathe in air is hampered, due to the tightening of muscles in the air passage, swelling, and thick mucus. The attacks are triggered by pollen, smoke, even food allergies (each person has its own set of asthma triggers) and are characterized by wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest.

Many asthma sufferers have found relief in herbs and other homeopathic treatments. For example, khella (also called Bishop�s Weed) helps prevent the tightening of the air passages, and there are cases of it actually opening the airways. However, dosages have to be controlled by a homeopathic expert, especially for children. The herb is best used over a short period of time, since overextended intake can lead to loss of appetite, headaches, and difficulty sleeping.

Homeopathic Medicine for Men

Prostatitis. Premature ejaculation. Arthritis. Erectile dysfunction. And gout. These are just a few of the extremely common conditions that are constantly presented to me by male clients, friends, and family members. Often, they consult me as a sort of “last resort.” I’m a homeopathic practitioner, after all, and many people in my world consider homeopathy to be an “alternative” medicine that is a little too “woo woo” to treat such “manly” disorders.

However, homeopathy is a 200-plus-year-old medical science that is fully regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And all remedies recognized by the well-respected Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) have been tested and proven effective in carefully controlled clinical trials.

Homeopathic Remedies Work–Without Dangerous Side Effects

Once I explain homeopathy’s impressive credentials to skeptical male clients, and once they experience the powerful and positive effects of the right homeopathic remedy, most men I work with become homeopathic evangelists for life. Why? Because homeopathic medicines work quickly and effectively–without the dangerous side effects associated with many conventional treatments, over-the-counter drugs, and prescriptions.

Finding the Right Remedy for Your Condition

Many common male conditions can be treated quickly and effectively with homeopathy. These include:

Herbs and Homeopathic Medicine Can Help Restless Leg Syndrome

What are Restless Leg Syndrome and Periodic Limb Movement?

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a common condition which causes pain and discomfort and prevents healthy sleeping patterns in sufferers. If you often feel an urge to move your legs when sitting or lying still for a long time, experience a �funny,� uncomfortable, creepy or itchy sensation in your legs when at rest or have ever woken yourself or your partner up during the night with jerking movements of your legs you may very well have Restless Leg Syndrome or RLS.

These symptoms are usually most troublesome at night though they can also occur during long stretches of inactivity, such as car trips, airline travel, in meetings, or when watching movies. Voluntarily moving the legs usually brings temporary relief from the unpleasant sensations. RLS is often detrimental to normal sleeping patterns, leading to insomnia and subsequent fatigue during the day - a problem that is inconvenient and debilitating for many people. Restless leg syndrome often has an insidious onset and worsens slowly over time. As the condition deteriorates the arms may also become involved.
