Homeopathic Medicines for the Whole Family

Posted on December 20th, 2013 by | 9 views

For common conditions that come on quickly such as colds or muscle pain from overexertion, or chronic conditions such as arthritis or some allergies, homeopathic medicines are used by millions of patients and recommended by health care professionals around the world. Homeopathy is a therapeutic method that uses highly diluted natural substances to help your body heal itself. These active ingredients relieve the same symptoms they cause when given in high doses (i.e., a micro-dose of coffee bean helps nervousness). Originating in Europe and building a remarkable safety record over the last 200 years, these over-the-counter drugs offer the following advantages:

  • Works naturally with the body without causing drowsiness or sleeplessness
  • Does not interact with conventional medications, herbs or supplements, allowing you to complement other treatments; there’s also no risk of overdose
  • Does not suppress symptoms. Patients and health care professionals can detect and respond faster if a more serious condition should arise.
  • Not contraindicated with pre-existing conditions. These drugs can even be used by high-risk patients with heart disease or liver problems.
  • Does not contain any of the ingredients questioned by the FDA for young children. An FDA panel questioned the safety and efficacy of decongestants, antihistamines and cough suppressants in children under six years of age. Homeopathy fills a void for cough, cold, flu and allergy treatment options for little bodies.
  • Kid-friendly. Doling out the remedy can escalate into a wrestling match, ending with you wondering about the dangers of giving more due to spillage. Easy-to-use homeopathic medicines taste sweet and make administration much easier. For example, teething can be a frustrating time for the entire household. Figuring out which medicine to give, how much and how often is difficult, especially for first-time parents. So to help calm your baby’s pain and restore the peace in your house, try homeopathic Camilia®. Camilia is a natural one-product solution for painful gums, irritability and minor digestive disorders caused by teething. Its sterile single–use doses are easy to administer, and there’s no risk of overdose. Recommended for children 1 month of age and up, Camilia does not contain benzocaine, preservatives, flavors or sugar, and it does not numb your baby’s gag reflex.

Homeopathic medicines are available in many different forms, including tablets, gels, ointments and creams, syrups, eye drops, and suppositories. The most traditional form is melt-away pellets that dissolve quickly under the tongue without water. These medicines are a great first choice when self-medicating. They work best when taken at the first sign of illness, so you can safely take them as soon as you develop symptoms. Look for them in national drug store chains and natural product stores.
