Acute vs Chronic Ailments
When is it ok to self-prescribe?
One of the best things I find about Homeopathy is that it can be used safely at home, without worries of overdosing or dangerous side effects.
For most acute problems, such as short lived common ailments like colds, coughs, headaches, tummy aches, etc., as well as minor accidents and first aid, self-prescribing homeopathic remedies is totally ok, and is a way that most people find homeopathy.
In fact, always encourage my clients to learn more about using homeopathy at home so they can easily treat themselves and their families when needed, for common ailments and acute situations.
Of course, having a homeopathy first aid kit will make things very easy to treat at home, and most of them come with a little book to help you find the right remedies for particular problems and conditions.
You can get your own kit in various places, including Helios and Ainsworths in the UK, or you can also get them by becoming a member of Homeopathy 247 (it’s free) and ordering from there, shipping worldwide.
So when do you need the help of a professional homeopath?
I manage several homeopathy Facebook groups, and I often see people asking for help with choosing remedies for chronic or more serious or complex conditions.
Whilst homeopathy is great for self-prescribing in many situations, chronic, serious, and complex conditions will most likely require the help of a professional homeopath.
The treatment of chronic and complex conditions is not easy, and will probably require various methods and digging deep into the root causes of these problems. This is certainly not easy to do on your own.
Just like you would not perform surgery on yourself or your family, or self prescribe for depression, arthritis, endometriosis, chronic fatigue, or chronic menstrual problems.
Even us homeopaths have our own homeopaths for these sorts of things!
Working with a professional homeopath will help you peel the layers that have built up through physical, emotional and spiritual toxicity and trauma, and helping you to heal yourself once and for all.
