Homeopathic Treatment: How to take the medicines and how best to store them

Taking Homeopathic Medicines

Homeopathic medicines are available in various forms: as pellets, tablets, liquids, creams and gels.  When taking the medicines orally, it is best to avoid eating or drinking for at least 15-20 minutes.  For infants, the pellets are best mixed with water.  Using a dropper or teaspoon, one can place a few drops of the mixed solution in the child's mouth.  Older children enjoy the sweet taste of the pellets and tablets so they are simple to administer directly on or under the tongue.  Sometimes Dr. Grossman will recommend a patient to dissolve the medicine in water.  To do so, simply pour the desired amount directly from the vial or bottle into a small amount of clear water.  Let the pellets sit for 15- 20 minutes.  Stir well ( or shake if you are using a sports bottle of water) and sip till done.  

Storing Homeopathic Medicines

Homeopathic medicines are best stored away from extreme temperatures and away from strong smelling substances like eucalyptus, camphor, Bengay, Vicks Vapor rub, and tea tree oil.
