For children and adults alike, homeopathic medicines–called remedies–are easy to take. They typically come as small pills which dissolve on the tongue and taste pleasantly sweet, so even kids don’t mind taking their medicine. The remedies may also be given in liquid.
All homeopathic remedies are prepared under strict manufacturing guidelines and controls by homeopathic pharmaceutical companies. Your homeopath may purchase these remedies from Canada, USA or Europe.
Unlike herbs or supplements, homeopaths use nano-doses (very small doses) of natural substances. The remedies originate mostly from plant material (70%) but also mineral and some animal/bacterial, which are prepared in a unique way through a series of repeated dilutions and succussions (vigorous shaking), which potentize (imprint) the remedies. Homeopaths and skeptics alike puzzle over the manufacturing process, nonetheless, both clinical experience and scientific studies prove remedies are effective, and scientists are working on an explanation using quantum physics. Despite initial skepticism, people around the world are catching on to homeopathy because it really works–for themselves, their children and their pets.
