Homeopathic remedies can be taken in several ways:
Dry Dose – taken directly under the tongue
Plussed Dose – dissolved in water
HOW TO TAKE REMEDIES IN DRY DOSE
Pour the pellets directly into your mouth without touching them and let them dissolve under your tongue. For young children and very sensitive individuals, as well as unconscious or very ill people, the dry dose can be dissolved in water and given with a spoon or medicine dropper: Rinse a clean glass in very hot water and let it cool. In the glass, put 1/4 cup filtered or distilled water, add the pellets, and let them dissolve for 15 minutes. Then give one teaspoon of the mixture.
Rinse a clean glass jar and lid in very hot water and let them cool. Measure 1/4 cup of filtered or distilled water and pour it into the jar. Without touching the pellets, place 2 or 3 pellets into the water.
Allow 15 minutes for the pellets to dissolve.
With the lid securely on, pound the bottom of the jar against the palm of your hand the number of times specified in our instructions. Alternately, one can cascade the mixture with a spoon, lifting it up with the spoon and pouring it back into the jar the specified number of times.
Take one teaspoon of the mixture, and either save the remainder for subsequent doses or throw it away if only one dose is prescribed.
For acute illnesses, the plussed dose can be very useful. A disposable water bottle can be used instead of the jar. Follow the above directions, take a dose of the remedy whenever the symptoms return, which can be every several minutes to several times a day. Use your body as your guide, taking the remedy only as needed. When one potency does not give any relief, move to the next higher potency and follow the same directions. Consult us if you are questioning when to move up, or how often to take a dose.
