Homeopathy: Materia Medica

Homeopathic Medicines

Given below is a list of suggested remedies for various problems. For most problems, we recommend buying a small bottle of the mother tincture, and taking 2-3 drops in half a glass of water, 30 minutes before or after meals. If the problem disappears, there is no need for any more doses. If it improves but reappears, take another dose. If it keeps reappearing, take a dose of a stronger potency.

Please read through our DIY Guideto understand more about homeopathic medication.

This is not an exhaustive list, and self-medication comes with its own risks. The website claims no responsility if the reader chooses to self-medicate. For best results, consult a trained physician.
