medicine and alcohol

As homeopathy remedies are alcohol based, are all the homeopathy remedies compatible with alcohol? I mean can all the medicines be taken by person who is consuming alcohol in moderate quantity without any side reaction because of alcohol? Please guide me. Thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Homeopathic remedies are not necessarily 'alcohol based'. Alcohol is merely a preservative when present. Abstaining from the use of alcohol is not essential during homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy operates within the body on a dynamic or energetic level. So interactions are not going to happen.

Sycotic - is it not true that beer should be avoided during homeopathic treatment due to the hops possibly interfering with remedies?
You must know where I heard this from (-:

Hi Rye
There are of course certain diseases where a change in diet would be crucial. Under ordinary circumstances however the key would be common sense or moderation in all things . With careful attention to individual case. Also we know from experience that a well chosen remedy has the power to act through most common food and drink. Ive copied Hahnemanns words on the subject. '

§ 260 Sixth Edition

Hence the careful investigation into such obstacles to cure is so much the more necessary in the case of patients affected by chronic diseases, as their diseases are usually aggravated by such noxious influences and other disease-causing errors in the diet and regimen, which often pass unnoticed.1

1 Coffee; fine Chinese and other herb teas; beer prepared with medicinal vegetable substances unsuitable for the patient's state; so-called fine liquors made with medicinal spices; all kinds of punch; spiced chocolate; odorous waters and perfumes of many kinds; strong-scented flowers in the apartment; tooth powders and essences and perfumed sachets compounded of drugs; highly spiced dishes and sauces; spiced cakes and ices; crude medicinal vegetables for soups; dishes of herbs, roots and stalks of plants possessing medicinal qualities; asparagus with long green tips, hops, and all vegetables possessing medicinal properties, celery, onions; old cheese, and meats that are in a state of decomposition, or that passes medicinal properties (as the flesh and fat of pork, ducks and geese, or veal that is too young and sour viands), ought just as certainly to be kept from patients as they should avoid all excesses in food, and in the use of sugar and salt, as also spirituous drinks, undiluted with water, heated rooms, woollen clothing next the skin, a sedentary life in close apartments, or the frequent indulgence in mere passive exercise (such as riding, driving or swinging), prolonged suckling, taking a long siesta in a recumbent posture in bed, sitting up long at night, uncleanliness, unnatural debauchery, enervation by reading obscene books, reading while lying down, Onanism or imperfect or suppressed intercourse in order to prevent conception, subjects of anger, grief or vexation, a passion for play, over-exertion of the mind or body, especially after meals, dwelling in marshy districts, damp rooms, penurious living, etc. All these things must be as far as possible avoided or removed, in order that the cure may not be obstructed or rendered impossible. Some of my disciples seem needlessly to increase the difficulties of the patient's dietary by forbidding the use of many more, tolerably indifferent things, which is not to be commended.

§ 261

The most appropriate regimen during the employment of medicine in chronic diseases consists in the removal of such obstacles to recovery, and in supplying where necessary the reverse: innocent moral and intellectual recreation, active exercise in the open air in almost all kinds of weather (daily walks, slight manual labor), suitable, nutritious, unmedicinal food and drink, etc.

§ 262

In acute diseases, on the other hand - except in cases of mental alienation - the subtle, unerring internal sense of the awakened life-preserving faculty determines so clearly and precisely, that the physician only requires to counsel the friends and attendants to put no obstacles in the way of this voice of nature by refusing anything the patient urgently desires in the way of food, or by trying to persuade him to partake of anything injurious.

§ 263

The desire of the patient affected by an acute disease with regard to food and drink is certainly chiefly for things that give palliative relief: they are, however, not strictly speaking of a medicinal character, and merely supply a sort of want. The slight hindrances that the gratification of this desire, within moderate bounds, could oppose to the radical removal of the disease1 will be amply counteracted and overcome by the power of the homoeopathically suited medicine and the vital force set free by it, as also by the refreshment that follows from taking what has been so ardently longed for. In like manner, in acute diseases the temperature of the room and the heat or coolness of the bed-coverings must also be arranged entirely in conformity with the patients' wish. He must be kept free from all over-exertion of mind and exciting emotions.

1 This is, however, rare. Thus, for instance, in pure inflammatory diseases, where aconite is so indispensable, whose action would be destroyed by partaking of vegetable acids, the desire of the patient is almost always for pure cold water only. '

Also (me here) we would recommend - we'll say beer - be avoided if beer is a known aggravating factor.

Thanks for the read. So in order to cure my chronic case, I would have to quit my job, stay clear of my wife and kids and eat lettuce all day. Sounds great.lol. I guess in todays world it has become increasingly difficult to not interfere with a remedy.

Yes dont delay!
My point here is summarized in
the footnote of aph. 260 . Again it says 'Some of my disciples seem needlessly to increase the difficulties of the patient's dietary by forbidding the use of many more, tolerably indifferent things, which is not to be commended.' So we shouldnt go needlessly overboard on dietary restrictions. By doing so you can actually be counter-productive. If we enjoy an occasion drink ? Enjoy it. 'However if our own foot stumbles us ? Cut it off.' Wow . Im like a philosopher , or something?
