How to Prescribe

Homeopathy is based on the principle that “like cures like”. Each remedy has a “picture” and homeopathy works effectively when you can find a match between your symptoms and those of a particular remedy. For example, a headache may be throbbing, stabbing, pressing, better by heat or cold or pressure, etc. each suggesting a different picture. There are books and leaflets on homeopathy which can help you to find the correct match for your condition.

Remedies are readily available in two strengths (also called “potency”): 6c and 30c. 30c is preferable for a quicker response, but either can be used. The correct choice of remedy is more important than the potency.

Taking the remedy:

Repeating the remedy

The effects of the remedy depend on how OFTEN you take it.Guide for the use of 30c potencies (for 6c, double or treble the frequency)

Once you see that the remedy has started to work, “stretch” the dose, that means, increase the gap between repetitions. THERE IS NO NEED TO REPEAT AS LONG AS THERE IS AN IMPROVEMENT - REPEAT IF SYMPTOMS RETURN.

As a rule of thumb, in acute conditions, if you have taken 6 repetitions of a remedy and there is absolutely no improvement, it is likely that a different remedy is needed.
