There are many myths about homeopathy and one is that they are affected by EMFs, such as airport x-rays and other scanners.

I always point out that we live in a web of EMFs with wireless and bluetooth in our homes, workplaces and shopping centres and of course on our phones, which we carry with us at all times! Airports and planes are full of these frequencies too, so no different to the rest of our world.

After 35 years of using homeopathics personally, travelling extensively with them and generally handling them badly, I’m convinced that remedies are much more robust than we imagine.

Homeopathics are a form of vibrational medicine and each remedy or combination has its own unique resonant frequency. Some may resonate at the particular frequency of an EMF from something man-made such as a scanner, microwave or smart TV. They are also often x-rayed or scanned in the postal system. Possibly there may be some random frequencies that can knock out the action of a remedy but really unless it is a frequency that is quite specific to matching or negatively affecting your particular remedy, I think it unlikely to be a problem and have not seen it in practice.

Some people ask if they should get their remedies hand scanned at the airport, rather than leaving them in their hand luggage and passing through x-ray. If you hand over your kit so it’s not x-rayed it will likely be swabbed for explosives; at least that’s what they always did before covid.

I tend to advise not handing them over (and this may also depend on what country you are in) and just leaving your kit in your hand luggage to go through the scanner. It won’t matter greatly, and may save some aggravation.

And yes you could wrap it in aluminum foil which some people suggest, although I don’t feel it’s an issue.

If you are travelling anywhere in Europe or the USA it really shouldn’t be an issue as they are familiar with homeopathics. If you are travelling somewhere that you perceive may be an issue we have a letter we can provide to go with any remedies you have purchased from us, advising what they are and how they should be handled.
