How To Take Remedies

Taking homeopathic remedies is very simple: they should be put straight into a clean mouth, without water and sucked for a few minutes. Some people prefer to put them under their tongue. Powders and liquid remedies can be dropped into the mouth, straight onto the tongue.


The curing power of remedies can be antidoted and it is important not to touch the remedies with your hands - especially if you are giving the remedy to someone else.

Keep homeopathic remedies away from electrical and magnetic devices, especially mobile phones, strong odours, heat and direct sunlight.

Make sure you do not eat or drink approximately 10 minutes before or after taking a remedy to give it the best possible chance of working effectively.

It is advisable to cut out stimulating drinks, such as coffee and strong tea whilst undergoing homeopathic treatment. This is because these drinks can disturb the curative response or even antidote the remedy you are taking.

Strong smelling substances can also antidote remedies. Aromatic oils such as tea-tree oil, camphor and menthol and scented products including toothpaste, mints, throat lozenges, some cough mixtures and vapour rubs/inhalations should be avoided.

There are a number of medications and procedures that can affect the power of homoeopathic remedies. These include: Immunisations including 'flu and tetanus vaccines/holiday jabs, the contraceptive pill and HRT, dental treatment and X-rays

If any of the above apply to you or your children,  it is important to provide this information.
