The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Ques. for any dr. (sameer if not too busy) about blends of homeopathics sold in health food stores.

I see so many blends of homeopathic remedies sold in stores (for allergies, teething, coughs, you name it.) i look at the ingredients and they have at least 5 different remedies listed in like a 6x or 12x dilution, for example. some even list over 15-20?

I heard its not good to mix remedies ever? i work at a health food store and people come in to buy things like this all the time and i just wonder what a real homeopathic dr would say about these products. from what little i know about homeopathy it seems entirely too complicated for anyone to just go to a store and pick out a blend of stuff they know nothing about other than that the box says it helps with the flu. but maybe im wrong. could someone clear this up for me when they get time? thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
This is entirely against homeopathic principles, and homeopathy is all about chosing a SINGLE medicine to cover the totality of symptoms.

The vital force is not capable of responding to more than one substance at a time.

And another reason for the use of one single, simple medicine at a time is to avoid the unpredictable effects of combining two or more drugs.

So, combining remedies is just a money making exercise to lure people into 'this for that' combinations.

I thought so, thats too bad because people fall for it. i know i did a few years back. i needed help with acne and i went to a health food store, they sold me 'acne hp'. had no idea what the ingredients meant and i was too uninformed to know the difference. of course it never helped my acne. this is good to know so i can direct people to get help from a professional homeopathic doctor. thanks sameer.
