What Is Homeopathy?
Homeopathic medicines are used to treat many acute health conditions such as allergies, coughs, colds, flu, stress, arthritis pain, muscle pain, teething, etc.Homeopathic medicines are therapeutically active micro-doses of mineral, botanical and biological substances. They are reliable and safe drugs, therefore considered by many as an excellent first choice when self-medicating. Homeopathy has been used for more than 200 years, building a remarkable safety record and generating a great body of knowledge. Today, homeopathy is used by millions of patients in more than 65 countries and recommended by more than 400,000 healthcare providers. Since the passing of the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act in 1938, homeopathic medicines have been regulated as drugs by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).1
To be accepted as a homeopathic medicine by the FDA, product ingredients must be identified in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) or generally accepted as homeopathic under the principles of homeopathy. All Boiron homeopathic medicines are manufactured according to the highest standards, complying with the specifications of the HPUS as well as drug Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Being regulated as a drug, as opposed to a food or dietary supplement, ensures that homeopathic medicines adhere to drug labeling specifications. Like packaging for conventional over-the-counter drugs, packaging for homeopathic medicines must state specific diseases, ailments or symptoms for which the product is to be used, the concentration of active substance or substances contained therein, the recommended dosage and the mode of application. These clear specifications make choices easier for consumers and guidance easier for retailers.
"To stimulate the evolution of healthcare by promoting scientific homeopathy as a more compassionate, more ecological and more comprehensive approach to medicine and to allow every physician to know homeopathy and integrate it into their daily practice."
How well-known are homeopathic medicines throughout the world?
A: Today, homeopathy is used by millions of patients in more than 65 countries and is recommended by more than 400,000 healthcare providers.
Is there any scientific research on homeopathic medicines?
A: An increasing number of scientific studies on homeopathy are being conducted and, in recent years, more than 150 of these studies have been published in medical journals. Clinical research is providing evidence of the efficacy of homeopathic medicines, and basic laboratory research is confirming the biological activity of highly diluted substances and helping the scientific community better understand their mechanism of action.
Can homeopathic medicines be taken in conjunction with other medications?
A: Micro-dosed homeopathic medicines above 4C are safe and have no known side effects or contraindications. They can be safely taken with other conventional medicines and are sometimes recommended to complement other treatments.
Can I give homeopathic medicines to my children?
A: Homeopathic medicines can be given to children without risk. As with any over-the-counter medicine, it is advisable to check with a doctor or a pharmacist before treating children younger than 2 years of age. The dosage is generally the same for adults and children since the activity of homeopathic medicines is not body-mass dependent. See package labeling for specific dosage recommendations.
How frequently can I or should I take homeopathic medicines?
A: Follow the instructions provided by your healthcare professional or on the product label. When it comes to single medicines packaged in multi-dose tubes, general dosage instructions are 5 pellets 3 times a day. As a general rule of thumb, when self-medicating, you can increase the frequency when the symptom is sudden and acute, then decrease frequency with improvement. For example, upon twisting your ankle, you can take Arnica pellets every 10 minutes 3 to 4 times a day and then 3 times a day as needed.
Do homeopathic medicines act quickly?
A: Yes. When used for acute, occasional illnesses, homeopathic medicines can take effect very quickly, especially if they are taken as soon as symptoms appear. For chronic disorders such as asthma, migraines and allergies, longer treatments are needed to see sustained relief.
Take 5 pellets of Arnica montana 6C 3 times a day until bruise is reduced (max 7 days).
Take 5 pellets of Calcarea phosphorica 6C with each complaint until growing pains symptoms are relieved (max 7 days).
Take 5 pellets of Gelsemium sempervirens 30C morning and afternoon until symptoms of worry are relieved (max 7 days).
Stop use and ask a doctor if symptoms persist for more than 7 days or worsen.
