Single medicines are known and registered by their Latin name, resulting in a
common international nomenclature. With over 2,000 different single medicines,
they offer a wide range of therapeutic indications. The medicines are also
available in a range of formats, the traditional format being a pellet or
granule composed of sucrose and lactose. Packaging formats include: multi-dose
tubes of granules, single-dose tubes of globules, bottles of liquid or syrup.

Homeopathy is a safe, effective, inexpensive, and complete system of medicine
that is suitable for just about anyone – infants, children, teens, adults and
seniors alike. Using a variety if diluted substances from minerals, plants, and
animals a qualified homeopath can treat many acute and chronic health concerns.
Even the novice user can learn to use homeopathy at home as a first aid tool,
and to treat common complaints, such as uncomplicated colds and flus, aches and
pains, fevers, rashes, bumps and bruises.
Homeopathy works by introducing a false set of symptoms that closely match the
symptoms already present. In this way, it might be compared to a vaccination.
For example, someone with red, water eyes, runny nose, and stuffy sinus might
choose to take Allium Cepa (red onion) which as we all know can cause those same
symptoms to appear when you cut into one.
For more complicated and chronic issues, a qualified homeopath will take an
indepth case that includes all of your symptoms when they occur – taking into
account all your likes and dislikes, lifestyle choices, mental and emotional
state, and more. Case taking can last often a few hours.
After analyzing your case they will choose a remedy that best fits your symptom
picture. With over 3000 remedies to choose from, this can be a challenging task.
Classical homeopathy is homeopathy at its simplest. Only one dose of a single
remedy is given at a time. Symptoms are monitored over the next several weeks
and the prescribing homeopath will determine from what changes may or may not
take place whether the remedy is to be repeated or possibly changed.
Homeopathy does not replace your medications and your practitioner should not
suggest you discontinue any prescriptions. Homeopathy works well along side any
medication and will not interfere with the effectiveness of any supplements,
herbs or drugs.
Non-toxic and gentle, homeopathy offers healing without side effects.
The Power of Homeopathic Dilutions
Substances used in homeopathy can sometimes be poisonous, toxic, or harmful in
their natural state. But, by diluting and succussing (vigorously shaking) the
substance in a homeopathic way, the gentle healing energy of the substance is
increased and the potential harm is elminated.
Generally, remedies are diluted on the 10 scale, indicated by a “D” or an “X”
after the number. The 100 scale is indicated by a “C” or a “CH” after a number,
and the 1000 scale by an “M” after a number. For each of these potencies, the
number indicates how many times the remedy has been diluted. Higher potency
remedies are the ones with the greater number of dilutions.
To achieve a 6x potency, for example, 1 drop of the crude substance is added to
9 drops of alcohol or water. The solution is then succussed and we now have a 1x
potency. If one drop of this new solution is put into 9 drops of fresh alchol or
water, and succussed, we then have a 2x potency. Continue until you have the
desired solution. It works the same for all scales, except the number of drops
differs. For the C (hundred) scale, 1 drop is diluted in 99 drops and the M
(1000) scale is one drop added to 999, and so on. A 200 potency has been diluted
200 times on the hundred scale, each time using a clean container.
Some very experienced homeopaths will actually make their own remedies in this
way, but fortunately there are expert homeopathic manufacturers who will prepare
remedies in the above way ready for you to buy off the store shelf.
How to Take Homeopathics
Remedies should be taken away from meals and not before or after brushing your
teeth with mint or strong tasting toothpaste. It is thought that some remedies
may be affected by strong odors, so these practices are recommended as a
precaution as a remedy’s effectiveness may be reduced or antidoted. Your
homeopath will tell you if there are any particular substances you need to avoid
with the remedy thy have prescribed, as this can very from remedy to remedy.
If pellets or globules are taken, they should be allowed to dissolve in the
mouth under the tongue. Liquids should be mixed with saliva in the mouth and
held for 10-15 seconds before swallowing. Some quick dissolve tablets are
available for infants, otherwise for babies globules can be dissolved in water
and then administered by a dropper or by spoon.
