What to Abstain from When Consuming Homeopathic Medicines
If you are suffering from an illness and receiving homeopathic treatment for it, then you need to know how to be careful and what to abstain from while consuming these medicines. Why? Because all the hard work by you and your doctor will be wasted if you are careless. Since it is a matter of your Health, you need to fulfill all the requirements of homeopathic medicine.
It is difficult to explain in detail everything about homeopathy in this brief article. But in short, all the homeopathic medicines depend on potency, which is the strength of the medicine. They do not contain ingredients in milligrams as allopathic medicines do. Instead, the medicinal ingredients are reduced and diluted because of which they possess medicinal qualities.
This is why homeopathic medicines get affected by the surroundings and lose their benefits. Therefore, you should avoid using extremely fragrant or smelly things around them. For example, perfume, raw garlic, onion, ginger, lemon or coffee. All these items should not be used while you’re consuming homeopathic medicine, or else you might not get effective results.
- Homeopathic medicine should always be taken on an empty stomach, or half an hour before eating, or one hour after eating. The best time, however, is before you go to bed or in the morning before breakfast.
- Avoid consuming two different types of homeopathic medicines at the same time. Always take medicines prescribed by one doctor. Do not consume medicines prescribed by two different doctors simultaneously, as that can harm your Health because both the doctors are unaware of the formula being used by the other. Always use the medicines as instructed by the doctor.
- A lot of people practice self-prescription after watching ads, which can be very dangerous for their health. Therefore, avoid such practice. Only take medicine after your doctor’s advice.
- Keep all kinds of medicines away from children, because homeopathic medicines resemble the ‘sugar of milk’ tablets, which are sweet and taste good, and children tend to consume them unknowingly. Be careful, because the effect of homeopathic medicines is gradual but can show extreme symptoms on the body and mind of a child.
