I love learning about homeopathy and I know that I still have SO much more to learn. If you are new to homeopathy, there are a few guiding principles:
Many people report about how safe homeopathy is because it uses such small doses to work with the body and heal. Homeopathic remedies are used for chronic and acute conditions that are mental and physical. It has been used for people and it also widely used by veterinarians.
We have been using remedies for a few years and I tend to stick to the handful of remedies, as I am still learning. If you are looking for a place to start, I would recommend learning from Sue Meyer who has a fabulous homeopathy book and website and you might also like to keep the following three remedies in your first aid kit. These are the three that we always have on hand:
- Arnica Montana – we keep this remedy on hand all of the time and anytime we get a bump, bruise, or any kind of trauma injury, we run and grab the arnica. We used to reach for an everyday painkiller, and now we use Arnica for those same needs.
- Hypericum – we use this remedy for pinches – if we pinch our finger, close our foot in a door or experience a pain that feels like a pinch pain, or nerve pain, we grab the hypericum.
- Belladonna – if any of us get a quick fever, we reach for the Belledonna. This tends to be our viral go to.
We use these as our go to so much, that my kids even know how and when to use them as well. I am not sure what we do without these!
