Constitutional remedies and doses

I have a few questions that I'm hoping someone can answer.
If one finds their constitutional remedy, in what dose and amount should it be taken?
I wasn't sure if I was going to try and find my constitutional remedy until I came across my sons. I was just doing allot of reading and studying to learn and really understand homeopathy.
It was a bit odd to me at first, but I'm really gaining a great understanding. I was reading about Bach flowers when I came across willow and couldn't help but be amazed at the description of my young son's father, to me, it was uncanny. So I figured, wow, he must be a Willow person.

Next, I came across Tarentula and was astounded at the description being of my 4 year old, nearly exact. I then thought, this must be his constitutional remedy. I'm having allot of problems with him and am hopefull that Tarentula may help.

Furthermore, after being so enlightened by this, I then found mine, being Lycopodium, which it seems, is also the constitutional remedy for my 17 year old son, as well. We are very much alike and the Lycopodium seems to really be us.
I have gone and ordered the Tarentula 30c and the Lycopodium 30c. Was this the right choice?
I made this choice, as someone had told me to give the Tarentula 30c to my 4 year old, once in the dry dose.

Some help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm positive that these constitutional remedies seem to cover many, if not all of our symptoms, mental and physical.

I do want to try these, because they were so amazingly fitting to each of us, but I would like to know in which dose they may work best.

Thank you in advance,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Since you have the 30s coming just start with those. Give the remedy only once and wait and observe any change. Potency selection is tough when using this scale. As a general rule I try and match the potency to the individuals energy level. That being said one requiring tarentula I may consider giving a higher potency 1m or 10m. The key is to be judicious in repetions. So just give each of them there remedy once. If you get good results you can go higher later. Rememer the remedy is only a stimulus. It is the reaction of the individual that is curative.

Thank you sycotic, that is very helpful information. This Tarentula child does have a very high energy level. I'm really looking forward to seeing a change and am hopeful that I have found the remedy that may help. I will keep this post informed of what changes may occur.

Hi Tanya, Actually, I've been reading all of the information right here on this site and at homeopathy and more site as well. Also I've searched other sites for various information. The other site is a .com, but we are not allowed to post the website here. There's a wealth of information available and I just keep reading and learning.

I knew right away when I was reading about Tarentula, that it was my son's constitutional remedy. I'm not yet 100% sure that Lycopodium is mine, but I believe it is. One thing I've realized about the constitutional remedies, is that you must be in touch with your good and bad feelings/behaviors and qualities, or your constitutional remedy will be harder to discover. It isn't always easy to accept our bad qualities within ourselves, but it seems that when we are aware of them, we can help them become better, especially with the help of the right remedy.

If you go to homeopathy and more, you will see at the top it says, 'find your constitutional remedy.' Click on that and follow the questionare. At the end when you submit, you will get a list of remedies that may suit your personality. You take the three with the highest numbers, then go read about each one of them and see if you may have found yours. My mouth dropped open, when I found my sons, and I was also quite surprised with my own. One thing I'd like to add is that the Bach flower remedies can be a constitutional remedy as well, so you'll want to read up on those too. I came across Willow and realized that it fit my ex boyfriends personality to a tee. I just found this all to be amazing and am waiting right now for my remedies to arrive. As I said above, I will keep this thread informed of the changes that take place with my family and friends as I go along.

The remedies sold by this site, are the cheapest i've seen as of yet, there are just certain ones that they don't have. There are also some that you can make at home and the other site I mentioned does give some instruction on that as well.

Good luck to you and feel free to ask for any other help that I may guide you with. I'm learning more and more every day.

You said it. Knowing your bad things is as important as knowing your good things....and in homeopathic matching...the mental symptoms are very important...like anger, hate, vindictiveness, jealousy, depression, grief, querrelsome, overly irritated etc etc.

Panjak, thank you for your reinforcement. I've been studying and i'm truly enjoying this new found love in my life. I'm finding great joy in learning to help others in this fantastic form of medicine. I have been aware of it for a few years now, but have been gaining much knowledge since the discovery of this site and the other in which we both frequent. I do look forward to reading more about your responses to people's ailments.

May i also add that i'm sorry for the problems that some are facing with one another on here. I do hope that it will settle soon. It worries me because people come here for help and will end up confused and may give up, as homeopathy is quite involved as it is. I think that it is important to remind people not to give up, not ever.
Thanks again,

Dear Lily White,

Sometimes there is 'high tide' in the 'ocean'.

A good sailor makes provisions for all eventualities.
