Homeopathic remedies are very powerful. So they can be very effective if you take the proper dosage of the proper homeopathic remedy.
However, there is a great misunderstanding about how much of a remedy to take and how long to take it. The dosage instructions that appear on the bottle of a homeopathic remedy that is sold in the typical store are very “general guidelines”.
In order to obtain the best results with homeopathic remedies, select the remedy that most closely matches the symptoms. In addition, in those conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, a lower potency (6x, 6C, 12x, 12C, 30x, or 30C) should be used – unless otherwise directed by a physician or other professional practitioner who is skilled in the use of homeopathic remedies.
Most skilled homeopathic physicians and practitioners suggest that homeopathic remedies be used as follows:
1 – Take one dose and wait for a response.
2 – If improvement is seen, continue to wait and let the remedy work.
3 – If improvement slows significantly or has clearly stopped, another dose may be taken.
4 – The frequency of dosage varies with the condition and the individual. Sometimes a dose may be required several times an hour; other times a dose may be indicated several times a day; and in some situations, one dose per day (or less) can be sufficient.
5 – If no response is seen within a reasonable amount of time, select a different remedy.
6 – And it is very important to remember the following: Homeopathic remedies should NEVER be TAKEN INDEFINITELY.
Once you have taken too much, you will observe some new symptoms which you did NOT have earlier.
You should definitely stop taking any particular homeopathic remedy at the point where you notice new symptoms. Why? Because that is the point at which that remedy has done all the good it can – so do not take any more of that remedy.
If you continue to repeat beyond this point, it will be detrimental to you by giving you new symptoms. Or, in other words, the remedy will graft the remedy’s own symptoms onto you. Once that happens it will be difficult to reverse.
So please remember, once you get some new symptoms, that is the signal that you have to stop taking any further tablets of that remedy, and you should wait for a long time before taking any more of that particular remedy.
