Usage and storage of homeopathic medicines
Homeopathic medicine can be used from birth to old age. It can be safely used by pregnant women, nursing mothers and allergic patients. In some cases, at the beginning of treatment a patient’s condition may worsen, which is a sign of a proper drug selection. Such a condition may last for a couple of days. Homeopathic medicine strengthens the body's self-defence mechanisms, helping it to cure itself. It can be used simultaneously with other medications (except antibiotics), combined with a massage, acupuncture or physiotherapy.
Since it is vitally important in the choosing of the right drug to take into account each patient's individual characteristics it requires a thorough examination. Therefore it is advisable to contact a homeopathic doctor first, especially in cases of chronic diseases. As it is not always possible to do, one can obtain complex drug preparations from the homeopathic pharmacy. They consist of a mixture of commonly used drugs prepared for the specific disease and are suitable for different constitutions and types of patients. If the health condition does not improve, one should consult a doctor.
