Read How to Dry Dose a Remedy

For the gentlest method to a speedy recovery in chronic disease, we recommend water dosing.
Our Homeopaths all use the most advanced water dosing methods of classical homeopathy. 
This method is taught in Dr. Samuel Hahnemann's 5th and 6th Edition Organon.
Individuals should not use these instructions in severe or prolonged acutes without the
guidance of a professional Homeopath.  Read disclaimer.

What is an Acute Illness

  • "Acute" means the sudden onset of symptoms associated with a cold, flu, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. 

  • Acutes are short lived events that will resolve and symptoms will disappear. 

  • Symptoms that appear suddenly and appear for a few days or weeks are considered and acute. 

  • Symptoms longer than 1 month are considered a chronic case in our homeopathic practice.

Tips for Acute Dosing

  • We don't always have to treat an acute condition with homeopathy. In less severe types of acute illness, you can sometimes just allow the body to deal with it naturally, when possible. You may choose instead to support recovery from less severe acutes with with other safe, natural means; vitamins, herbs and bed rest.

  • We most often use a 200C or 1M potency in acute care. The higher the potency (i.e. a 200C vs. a 30C), the stronger the remedy.

  • Most 30C remedies are readily available in most health food stores.

  • A 200C Acute Remedy Kit is a wise investment for any household.

  • If you are treating a family member who is very sensitive, the elderly and in a very weakened state or if treating a family member with a lot of pathology (i.e. cancer) then we suggest using lower potency remedy.  You should consult with a Homeopath in sensitive cases

  • Do NOT try treat for chronic or recurring symptoms without the advice of a Homeopath.

  • In selecting a remedy, DO NOT go by what symptoms are written on the remedy bottle by the manufacturer.  These are required to be listed by the FDA, but are not a comprehensive.

Collected These Items Needed:

  • Correct remedy in the 200C potency for all acute conditions.

  • Filtered spring water (NO fluoridated water!) in a clean, new plastic or glass bottle with sealable cap.

  • Plastic spoon

  • Rubber band to hold the spoon on bottle.

  • Label and marker to make a label for the Remedy Supply Bottle (RSB).

Preparing A Remedy in Water

Why Just Two Pills of the Remedy?

  • The amount of pills used in the remedy bottle is very important!
  • Using too many pills, even if it is the correct remedy, can cause aggravations.
  • When homeopathic remedies are manufactured, only a few drops of the tincture are placed on 500 blank pills.
  • We suggest using only 2 pills to avoid unnecessary aggravations.
  • We recommend using 2 pills in the water dosing bottle (RSB - Remedy Supply Bottle)

  • Do not touch the pills, just drop them in the bottle.

  • We recommend a 30C is made using 4 oz. of water in a bottle  - any exceptions will be noted by your homeopath

  • We recommend a 200C is made using 8 oz. of water in a bottle  - any exceptions will be noted by your homeopath

  • Dissolve remedy pills complete and mix to blend (don't shake or succuss) before dosing

Instructions for Dosing A Remedy in Water:

  • Use the same remedy bottle (RSB) is used for all doses, the same spoon and if being used, the same dropper.

  • Take 1 teaspoon from the bottle as the standard acute dose or as recommended by your homeopath.

  • Hold the remedy in mouth 3 seconds before swallowing.

  • Client must have a clean mouth from food or drink or teeth brushing before dosing  - including water after - at least 15 minutes before and after each dose.

  • Success the bottle before all doses after the first - read more below about succussions.

  • No coffee or black tea should be drunk for at least 1 hour before or after the dose.

  • Never drink directly from the bottle. Use a spoon so you do not disturb the progression of potencies or contaminate the bottle with bacteria.

  • Standard succussions we recommend AFTER THE  FIRST DOSE with zero succussions are 4 succussions prior to each dose in acutes. Succussions are done to the remedy bottle before each subsequent dose, after the 1st test dose which is taken

  • Do not give more than 6 doses in 24 hours of a remedy.

  • Unless instructed otherwise by your Homeopath, wait at least 1 hour before dosing again to be sure the remedy is not aggravating the symptoms.

  • Standard succussions we recommend AFTER THE  FIRST DOSE with zero succussions are 4 succussions prior to

  • If there is any type of clear aggravation STOP DOSING the remedy and consult your Homeopath.

  • Things should START TO IMPROVE after 3 - 6 doses, slowly and gently, if the remedy is correct.

  • Use the same remedy bottle is used for all doses, the same spoon and if being used, the same dropper.

  • Track the doses of all remedies and the responses.

  • Follow your Homeopath's instructions for any variations on making a remedy or amount from what is stated the above.

Why Succuss A Remedy?

  • The first test dose is taken with NO succussions.  

  • Succussions INCREASE the strength of the remedy, slightly and gently, each time.

  • Succuss the bottle each time before taking a dose after the first dose.

  • A succussion is a very hard WHACK to the remedy bottle, like a judge hitting a gavel, from 2 feet, on the palm of your hand or leather bound book.

  • Succussions are done to the bottle before dosing, after the first one with no succussion.

  • The standard number succussions we recommend is always 4 succussions prior to each dose.

Watch and Judge The Remedy's Action

  • If there is a GREAT - striking improvement, stop the remedy.  It worked!

  • If there is a clear aggravation after any doses (the symptoms are much worse), stop the remedy and contact a Homeopath.  You either have the wrong remedy or too strong a potency.

  • If there is some improvement but more is needed, continue dosing.

  • The recommended total is a maximum of 6 doses in 24 hours, in order to fully judge the remedy's action.

  • Remember, it takes the body TIME for the body to respond to a remedy.

  • Never drink directly from the bottle.  This will destroy the gentle succussion action to the remedy.  It will also contaminate the remedy for future use.

  • When you are done with the acute, throw away the remedy and the bottle.

  • You ALWAYS need to use a fresh, new bottle, new remedy pills, and a new plastic spoon for each acute, each time one occurs.

  • Never share remedy bottles.  Each acute and each person needs their own, as dosing and succussions will vary.

TIP: Judging A Response To An Acute Remedy

  • If there is 75% percent or more improvement, wait and watch.  Let the body continue to heal on it's own.

  • The physical symptoms should also improve steadily and noticeably in an acute.

  • You will also see improvements that are in mental and emotional symptoms. For example, less anxiety, less clinginess in children, improved general well being, better mood, better overall energy level, etc.  These improvements will come along with the physical improvements.

 

TIP: How To Extend A Remedy Bottle
Making More of the Current Acute Bottle When Almost Empty

  • Keep the last one (1) teaspoon in the remedy bottle.

  • Add 2 new pills of the same remedy and potency as you used.

  • All the succussions will transfer to the new bottle.

  • Add the same amount of water to the Remedy Supple Bottle (RSB) as you started out with originally.

  • Keep dosing the same with the same 4 succussions as before.

  • If you forgot to save the last 1 teaspoon of a remedy then make up a fresh bottle like you originally did (see instructions above) and continue dosing.

How To Avoid Remedy Antidoting A Remedy

  • Coffee and Black Tea: Coffee can also interfere with the remedyís action.  If you are a coffee drinker, try to limit your use to the minimum or none while on a remedy.  Dose your remedy 1 hour after drinking any coffee.

  • Strong flavors: Strong mints, Altoids, mouthwash, menthol, etc. can antidote remedies.
  • Dental Work, Surgery and Other Medical Procedures:  These can antidote the remedy action. Yuu will need to repeat doses if many cases and this often requires the assistance of a professional Homeopath.

  • Direct Sunlight or High Heat:  Direct sunlight, high heat or high temperatures and too cold temperatures will deactivate the remedy.  Keep remedies away from sunlight/hot areas of your home. Donít leave remedies  in a car in the heat. 

  • Essential Oils, Camphor & Eucalyptus: Products with these ingredients can antidote and interrupt a remedy's action!  Avoid Vickís, Noxema, Ben Gay, Tea Tree Oil, Tiger Balm, Sea Breeze, Carmex, Chapsticks, mothballs and anything else smelling like camphor or eucalyptus.

  • Electric Blankets and Heating Pads: These may deactivate a remedy, so please avoid their use during treatment.

  • Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR): Donít leave remedies next to your microwave or cell phone.

  • Prescriptions and Drugs: Prescription drugs, some over-the-counter drugs, Chinese herbs and/or medicinal herbs and certain nutritional supplements can all negatively influence a remedyís action. 

  • X-Ray Equipment At the Airport: If you are flying, put your remedy in the basket provided for exposed film when you go through security.
     

TIP: Remedy Storage and Organization

  • Always keep all remedies and remedy bottles away from children!

  • Buy a 50 Remedy Acute Remedy Kit  at: www.homeopathyforwomen.org/remedy_kit.htm

  • If donít own a remedy kit or remedy storage kit, buy an inexpensive pencil box for storage of your remedies.  These are a great inexpensive container  \to store remedies so they are all together at home or during travel. 

Commonly Asked Remedy Dosing Questions:

  • If I forget and accidentally drink or eat something right after I dose a remedy, do I dose again right then?
    No.  You need to wait for the next dosing time.  Some of the remedy action was accepted even if you did this.

  • Does it matter if I succuss the remedy, then get interrupted and don't take it right away?
    No.  The power of the succussions is still in there.

  • Does it succuss the remedy if I take it traveling with me and it gets jounced around?
    No.  The succussion has to be a hard and direct whack.

  • Should I stop taking my prescription medication?
    No.  You should continue to take it until you have an opportunity to consult with the physician who prescribed it, who is the only person who can be responsible for your discontinuing it. Some medications are dangerous if discontinued suddenly.

  • What if I run accidentally spill it all out?
    Don't worry. You will just make a new fresh remedy bottle per the instructions above.
