Single or Combination Remedies

| 0

I was trained in the UK where, at that time, using a combination remedy was considered a crime by homeopaths! When I set up in practice in 1998 I realised that it took a lot to explain homeopathy and some people just didn’t have the time or the desire to find out how to do single remedy prescribing.

How challenging is it to have a sick child in the middle of the night and have to read through a materia medica (homeopathic guide) to pick a remedy, when you can just give Panadol?!!

I wanted to offer a simple way to access homeopathy for busy families and so I looked at combination remedies offered by companies around the world, and in particular in Germany where they are very popular, and I started to try out some of my own formulations with clients.

Combination remedies are such an easy way for people to start out and from using a combination remedy people get the understanding of how well homeopathy can work. They might progress to single remedy prescribing or they might not, but they may also progress to having a consultation and changing their health and their lives.

The purists undoubtedly say the remedies in the combination negate each other, they won’t work or they may even cause suppression, but in my experience over 20 years, this is not the case at all.

What I believe happens is that the body works with the resonance of the indicated remedy, so it’s usually only one remedy in that combination that works for the individual. The body chooses. This is all just energy. If you put 3 remedies in a bottle they don’t become mixed up, they are still 3 single remedies!!

Combination remedies can be a great way to start out using remedies and they can be a very convenient way of taking a minimum of remedies travelling and for non-homeopathy users to easily pick what to give from your kit.

There’s no shame in using combination remedies and they often produce quick and reliable results, as feedback from customers keeps affirming.
