Now that the holidays are over and 2021 has begun, and many of you are returning to school, you need to be healthy both physically and mentally. Here are more tips to on how to take and store homeopathic remedies.
The beauty of alternative medicine, particularly homeopathic remedies is that they have absolutely no side effects. They are even safe for children. The medicine comes in the form of tiny pellets that you put under your tongue (sublingual) and allow to dissolve. You should not eat or drink anything with a strong flavor for at least 15-20 minutes before and after you have ingested the medicine. Also be sure, upon opening the bottle that there are no strong odors in the room, and recap it as soon as you take your pellet. Do not touch the pellet. It is recommended that coffee and products containing camphor or related substances be avoided during the period of homeopathic treatment and for 48 hours after the last dosage. Homeopathic medicines can retain their strength for a long period of time, almost indefinitely when stored and handled properly. Potency can be lost if treated incorrectly.
Please observe these guidelines for storage, handling and proper care.
- Keep the medicine from intense light, or exposure to sunlight.
- High temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Strong smelling substances such as moth balls, perfume, camphor.
- Always keep medicine in the original container.
- Be careful not to contaminate the bottle cap.
- If medicine becomes contaminated, replace it.
