Arrow Homeopathy: Avoiding the Antidotes

Homeopathy: Avoiding the Antidotes

Homeopathy is a medical system that uses infinitesimal doses of natural
substances to stimulate a person's immune system and body's natural defenses.
Homeopathic remedies are named for the plant or animal ingredients they are made
from. Homeopathy not only offers relief from temporary disorders but, can
provide long term healing of a person due to its individual and "wholistic"
approach. This often leads to a complete recovery from the dis-ease, as well as,
providing an improved understanding of the patient's situation. This type of
healing makes it easier and possible to avoid recurrence or relapses in the
future and, homeopathy stimulates the body's natural defense system by
reestablishing normal immune system and cell functioning.

Homeopathics are created by taking the remedy: a plant, mineral, chemical, or
animal substance, diluting it in water and shaking it vigorously. The more it is
sequentially diluted and shaken, the more potent the medicine. This is why
minuscule doses are used.

"Like cures Like". Here are some perfect examples:

* A full strength dose of Ipeca will cause vomiting.
In a very diluted dose, it becomes a remedy to control nausea and vomiting.

* Coffee before bed will generally cause a sleepless night.
In an infinitesimal dose, it is used to treat insomnia.

*A large dose of sodium sulfate will characteristically provoke diarrhea.
An infinitesimal or homeopathic dose can cure that same type of diarrhea.

Avoiding the Antidotes

Homeopathic remedies are powerful remedies but they work in such small doses
that they can easily be compromised! According to Classic Homeopathy, the
following antidotes should be avoided:

Avoid heat, light, moisture.
Keep homeopathic remedies tightly sealed in a cool, dark place. The steam in
your bathroom may not be a safe place for them. Consider an area outside of the
medicine chest.

Refrain from mint.
Mint or peppermint toothpaste, mint in your ice tea or mint chocolate chip ice
cream should all be avoided during the time you are using homeopathic remedies.

Avoid Aromatics.
Menthol, camphor, tiger balm and perfume can neutralize homeopathic remedies.

Don't touch.
Pour the remedy pills from the bottle into the cap. Then pour them under your
tongue. The oil from your hands can affect them.

Not with meals.
Take one half hour before eating or one to two hours after.

Don't chew or swallow.
Dissolve homeopathic pellets under the tongue. They absorb quickly into the
bloodstream this way. Homeopathic drops can be taken the same way or in a glass
of water.

Avoid stimulants.
Avoid smoking, coffee and caffeine especially within 30 minutes of taking
homeopathic remedies.

As time goes by I am finding that the theory of antidotes in homeopathy still remains a theory and has not proved out.... it is often an excuse for poor remedy selection or inappropriate potency selection..

That explaination of homeopathy is too dumbed down. There is nothing better than an educated client. Read mine:
