I sometimes get emails about homeopathic remedies such as Belladonna or Aconite, which people may know are made from poisonous plants. We do seem to use a lot of seemingly toxic substances in our medicines, but the way we make our remedies is key in being able to use them without any concerns.

You wouldn’t want to buy or use some of these substances in a herbal form, because yes, some of  them are toxic in these material doses, ie as a plant.

However, because of the special way homeopathic remedies are made, Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the body who looks after our medicines in Australia, views them as low risk when prescribed according to homeopathic principles.

These substances have been used in homeopathic form for over 200 years so we know about their action when prepared in this way and you can be assured that at Elements of Health we comply with minimum potencies (dilution) to make sure your remedies are not going to be a problem for your babies and small children.
