Homeopathic Remedies Just Might Help!   Dec 2017

 

            TOTAL Health stocks a wide variety of Homeopathic Remedies that cover a broad range of ‘conditions’ or ‘ailments’. The success in alleviating the condition varies and many clients state these remedies are the best thing they have tried for relief of symptoms.

            So, what is homeopathy? Homeopathic medicine is an alternative method of treating disease by stimulating the body to “turn on” its own healing mechanisms in order to restore homeostasis (balance). Homeopathy uses the “Law of Similars” or “Like treating Like”. This means similar symptoms caused by taking or being exposed to a substance in its raw form can be alleviated by taking the same substance in a highly diluted form. The “Arndt-Schultz Law” suggests that substances vary in action depending on the strength of concentration. To inhibit, use high concentrations, to suppress, use medium concentrations & to stimulate, use minute (low) concentrations.

            In contrast to homeopathy, allopathic medicine treats disease by the suppression & regulation of symptoms by destroying microbes associated with the condition. A good example of this is antibiotics used to kill the “bad bacteria”.

            Strict and specific guidelines are followed to dilute and manufacture homeopathic remedies. The ‘true’ homeopathic formulators use hand succussing, whereby mother tincture from which the active ingredient is derived is mixed into the base by lightly pounding on the outside of the beaker or vial with the base of your hand. The dilutions are precise and vigorous shaking with sudden impact determines the potency and activates the formula. Homeopathy is often referred to as being energetic, since the dilutions are virtually undetectable in the formula. Many commercial formulations that are not used in the ‘physician’ arena are mixed by machine, which would not produce a genuine homeopathic remedy.

            Most homeopathic remedies are made in an alcohol base & infrequently are in a water base. The alcohol based remedies are either de-mineralized water or purified water and 20-25% gluten free ethanol / alcohol. To dissipate the alcohol, allow the liquid formula to sit in tepid water or a heated cup for a few minutes. HVS (HomeoViticS) makes water base remedies for a number of conditions. HVS formulas contain a number of potencies in a base of pure water.

                               

            The most common dilution factors are decimal (X) and centesimal (C). For each stage of potency, a remedy can be diluted by a 1:10 or 1:100 ratio. So, if a formula says 6X potency, it has been diluted 1:10 six times. The final product will have 1 part original substance in one million parts of “potenized” product. Clinically, low doses (1X-6X) are used for acute problems and stimulation or drainage. Medium doses (12X-30X) are used for problems lasting longer than 10 days and high doses (60X and up) for immediate effect on acute or suppressed conditions.

The potencies in formulas can indicate what a company is trying to provide or better yet, what they are focusing on. The low potency formulas are designed for a slower drainage process. If you want quicker results, you would use 60x, 100x or 200x formulas.

You will also find products made in multi-potencies, like 6x (or 6c), 12x, 30x & 60x. The theory is the more ‘potencies’ a product has, the better range of activity it may provide. Big supplement retailers have machine (factory) produced products which are not considered to be energetic products. It is our opinion that you would want to use homeopathic remedies made by companies that specialize in this field. Our best companies are Deseret Biologicals (DB), Physica Energetics (PE), Professional Complimentary Health (PCHF), HVS & Bioron (B).

            As you can see from the list above, if you can think of it, there is probably a homeopathic remedy to address the symptoms. (PCHF has over 1,000 individual remedies in their catalogue!) In our personal experience, many work better than expected & some will not work for one person & be great for the next. Due to the relative inexpensive price of these remedies & non-allergic potential, there is no harm in trying a remedy to see if it can help alleviate symptoms.    

            There are specific rules for taking homeopathic remedies to permit proper ‘absorption’ in the mouth:

  • Do not take within 10-15 minutes of ingesting anything else orally
  • Do not brush teeth (or mouthwash) before taking remedies
  • Hold the drops under the tongue for 1-2 minutes & then let it disperse (swallow)
  • Coffee or tea should be avoided before taking homeopathic remedies, along with mint or camphor
  • Store in cool, dark place away from exposure to sunlight, microwave or other electromagnetic frequencies

           

            Based on the severity & duration of symptoms, dosing schedules will vary. In most instances, the following regimen is normal:

  • Acute Dosing > When symptoms are immediate or severe, take 10-15 drops (or as listed on the label) under the tongue every 15 minutes. Do not exceed 3 hours total.
  • Sub acute Dosing > When symptoms are mild to moderate or when they improve, take 10-15 drops (or as listed on the label) under the tongue every hour.       Do not exceed 8 hours total.
  • Chronic Dosing > For chronic conditions or when symptoms last longer than 48-72 hours, take as directed on the bottle, which is generally 10 drops under the tongue 3x/day.
  • Preventive Dosing > For maintenance of occasional conditions or for a tendency toward a condition, take 10 to 15 drops once weekly or monthly (or as needed)
  • Sensitive individuals may start with 1 drop & work up or decrease the dose.       You may also put the dose in 4 oz water & sip 1 tsp at a time on schedule.

 

            As with any treatment regimen, it is always advised to consult with your medical professional before beginning a new regimen & follow their direction.
