WHICH REMEDY do I CHOOSE and when?
When choosing your remedy, try to match the energy expressed by the allergy symptoms being felt throughout your body physically, emotionally and mentally. We are all susceptible to different resonating energies at any given point in our lives. Homeopathic remedies are potentized to hold the resonating frequency of the substance it represents. When we match the energy picture of the individual’s allergy symptoms with a similar energy of the chosen remedy, they will cancel each other out. This will then provide the body the space it needs to heal itself through homeostasis- a state the body will always strive to be in. The more organized the body system is, the more capable it will be in reacting to stress and disease or in this case, allergies.
Take one dose. If after thirty minutes you feel no change, take a second dose (up to five doses daily). Stop dosing as soon as you start to feel relief. Re-dose if you feel the remedy is wearing off.
If you do not experience any relief after taking a remedy, revisit the remedy descriptions to see if another remedy is better suited to your current energy picture. If you are not sure between two remedies, it is OK to rotate between the two, thirty minutes apart. It is recommended to only rotate between two remedies at a time. Stop dosing once you start to feel relief.\
FYI: Mint (tea or toothpaste), camphor (tiger balm or vapour rub) and coffee are all possible antidotes to homeopathic treatment. For best results, it is advised that you space out your use of these types of products a minimum of an hour before and after taking a homeopathic remedy.
Your remedies are potentized to the centesimal scale. This is a 1 in 100 dilution factor. Therefore, 200C would be two hundred serial dilutions of 1 in 100. This method of trituration creates different potencies in remedies. Generally you can find remedies in stores at a 6C, 12C or 30C potency. As the number of dilutions increase, the potency gets higher. At 12C (which equates to 10 to the power of 24) and above, the dilution factor exceeds Avogadro's number. It is past the dilution of 12C where the ability to measure molecular substance stops. Past molecular presence is where the energetic stimulus increases in depth. Higher potencies are less material in nature and will therefore stimulate the energetic parts of the human being.
