Homeopathy: What Seniors Need to Know
Homeopathy differs from traditional Western medicine in that its priority is to include the mechanism of the body’s natural treatment.
Homeopaths are convinced that if we get sick, this is due to the failure of the internal balance of the body and that the body itself is struggling to recover.
Some homeopathic remedies, such as arnica or calendula, are available in the form of gels. This is an excellent means of external action, helping from such injuries as bruises, burns, bites and skin irritations. The gel is a simple and effective way to apply the product directly to a sore spot, but it is not suitable for all diseases: some require the drug to be taken orally.
Homeopathic remedies for internal use, as a rule, are available in the form of tablets or capsules. Tablets are almost always very small in size – the more convenient it will be for you to keep them in your purse or first-aid kit. However, it is important to carefully follow the instructions on the pill packaging label.
Liquid preparations can be used in different ways depending on the ailment and composition of the drug. Do not forget to carefully read the labels, you must be sure that you are taking the drug correctly and in the right doses: the strength of the drug effect depends on the degree of dilution.
Homeopathic First Aid Kit:
- Never try to make a homeopathic drug on your own: some medicines are based on extracts from plants or animals that are poisonous in their natural form and can cause you serious harm.
- Preparations are available in different concentrations, so before you buy, consult with a homeopath what degree of concentration is appropriate for your case. The general rule is this: the more diluted the drug is, the more active it is. Be sure to check how often you will need to take the medicine. Homeopathic remedies work more effectively in small doses and with infrequent use. Preparations from specialty stores are usually fairly safe.
