What Is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a natural approach to
medicine that works without contraindications (interference with other
medications you may be taking) or side effects to stimulate the body's
curative responses so the body heals itself.
Your body has the ability to heal
itself. When you are ill, your body produces symptoms, which is how we
know that the body has recognized that something is wrong and is
actively working to heal itself. This "natural regulator" is your
body's auto-regulatory mechanism and it works to keep your body in
balance - or in a state of homeostasis.
Here's an example of how this works.
Think of your "natural regulator" as your internal temperature gauge.
If you go outside and it is very hot, your body will recognize it is
too hot and begin to perspire. Your homeostatic mechanism is producing
a symptom - perspiration - in an effort to cool down the body. If you
go outside and it is very cold, the symptom is shivering. Your
homeostatic mechanism is trying to warm the body up by shivering to
Think about the last time you were
shivering. You could not control it, and you did not stop until you
were warm. It is the same way with homeopathic medicines. If you are
ill and your body is showing symptoms, the symptoms will not disappear
until the source of the symptoms has disappeared.
Homeopathic medicines stimulate your
body's homeostatic mechanism so your body heals itself by dealing with
the sources of your symptoms.
Homeopathy is different from
conventional medicine because conventional medicine simply defines
health as the lack of symptoms (if you dry up a runny nose, is your
cold gone and are you healthy?). Homeopathy defines health as the lack
of disease (if you get rid of the source of the runny nose in the
process of dealing with the source, the runny nose will disappear on
How Do I Take Homeopathic Remedies?
Homeopathic medicines should be
placed under the tongue of adults and children or in the cheek of an
infant where they will dissolve. It is preferable that there be nothing
in the mouth to eat or drink 15 minutes before or after taking
Look under your tongue. It is an
environment full of capillaries (blood vessels) surrounded by very soft
tissue. If you want something to be absorbed directly into the human
body, what better place to do it than somewhere that is rich in blood
vessels that carry blood throughout your system rapidly!
Homeopathic products are very
clean-meaning they have no binders, fillers or coatings. The soft
molded lactose tablets are made to dissolve almost instantly when
placed in the mouth. Because the remedies dissolve in the mouth, they
are absorbed by the mucous membranes in the mouth and carried directly
into your system. For this reason, the remedies work faster than
conventional medicines because conventional medicines are usually
coated and don't get absorbed into the system until the coating is
dissolved by the stomach acid, and that generally takes about twenty
Homeopathic medicated pellets take
longer to dissolve, but they don't taste bad so it is worth the wait.
Dilutions are liquid and should be dropped directly under the tongue.
Because the remedies are very clean
and fragile, avoid handling them. It is preferable to drop the tablets
or pellets into the cap of the bottle, and pour them from the cap into
your mouth. If more than four pour into the cap, take four-don't put
the pills back into the bottle.
You cannot overdose on homeopathic
medicines. If you take fifteen tablets or five tablets (or 100 tablets
for that matter) AT ONE TIME it is one dose. You will stimulate your
curative response one time. So, it is not a tragedy if more than six
tablets fall into the cap, just take them rather than risk putting a
contaminated pill back into the bottle to contaminate the others in the
Finally, things like mint, caffeine
and other remedies may antidote homeopathic medicines. In order to help
prevent antidotes, take your remedies one at a time, with a "clean
mouth". It is best not to eat or drink 15 minutes before or after
taking the remedies.
I Am Lactose Intolerant. Can ITake These Products?
People who are lactose intolerant
have not yet developed the enzymes to digest lactose. Our products
contain about 64 milligrams of lactose (the sugar from cow's milk-no
protein is used) per tablet. While everyone is different, most lactose
intolerant individuals would need to ingest 5000 mg of lactose before
they experience symptoms of intolerance. With this large margin of
safety, there is rarely a problem with our products when being used as
directed on the label. If your physician has determined that you are
specifically "Allergic to Lactose", you should avoid our tablets. If
you are very concerned, seek the advice of a licensed health care
professional before using this product.
Do These Tablets Expire?
Our tablets do not expire. We don't
put expiration dates on the products, as they have been exempted from
expiration dating guidelines by the FDA (CFR 211.137) The numbers that
are imprinted on the edge of the labels are lot numbers - so we know
exactly when the product was produced. We can track any product we made
using that number.
Dissolve 3-6 pellets under tongue 3-4 times a day, repeat as required or as directed by a licensed practitioner. Children half adult dose. To be used according to label indications, standard homeopathic indications, or as directed by a licensed practitioner.
Does Not Contain
As with any drug, if you are pregnant or nursing a baby, seek the advice of a health professional before using this product. If symptoms persist for more than 7 days or worsen, consult a licensed practitioner. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
