The Basics of Homeopathic Supplements
In the last couple of days we have gotten in 2 new Homeopathic lines that we are really excited about. The first is OLLOÏS, which is a French based company, with the belief that everything is connected and they pride themselves on their products being free of synthetic chemicals. The second line is from Homeolab and is designed entirely for children! They have products that address every issue your children deal with: fever, pain, cough, cold, etc.
Since we have gotten these products on the shelf, we have also gotten a lot of questions about Homeopathy & Homeopathic supplements. Today we just wanted to go over the basics of what Homeopathy is and how to select the right supplement for your needs!
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a natural medical science that is both gentle and effective. This unique therapeutic system takes on a holistic approach as it aims to treat the whole individual. Disorders, diseases and illnesses are expressed through a variety of symptoms that may be emotional, mental, and/or physical in nature. These symptoms are seen as an attempt for the body to restore balance and health.
“Similia Similibus Curentur” (like cures like) is the philosophy behind homeopathy. It is based on the Law of Similars that states by matching the symptoms that are caused in healthy people by a certain substance, that same substance has the best chance of producing a curing response with diseased individuals that express those same symptoms.
Homeopathic remedies are prepared from natural substances to precise standards and work by stimulating the body's own healing ability. They are extremely safe because of they’re small doses, totally natural, and extremely effective when taken correctly.
Picking the Right One
If you have ever walked into a natural food store to purchase a Homeopathic supplement it might have made your head swim. There are so many scientific names, symptoms and dosages listed that it can be rather confusing. We want to simplify the experience of buying Homeopathic supplements for you with 2 easy steps:
1. Read through the symptoms and find the Homeopathic Supplement that best fits your symptoms. For example, if you are having an allergic reaction to rag weed and you have a runny nose, watery eyes and are sneezing then Allium Cepa is the right choice.
2. Now that you have picked the right Homeopathic supplement for your symptoms you need to figure out the dosage. Some of the Homeopathic supplements are only offered in one dosage, so that makes your decision easy, but others can have up to 5 different dosages.
The dosage on the bottle ( 6c, 12c, 30x, 30c, 200ck) corresponds to the level of action. For example:
Do you feel a very recent or localized pain? Arnica Montana 6c
Is your pain from a couple of days ago or did you undergo localized surgery? Arnica Montana 12c
Do you feel overall pain, like after a workout session? Arnica Montana 30c
Do you feel that your pain is associated with emotional trouble? Arnica Montana 200ck
We hope this help as you explore the healing possibilities of Homeopathic supplements!
