When going away from home you will need to take all your usual medication or supplements, plasters, scissors, tweezers, sun protection in the form of hats and creams or sun blocks.
If you are familiar with homeopathy, you will be aware of which remedies suit the typical ailments you and your family suffer from. It is helpful to pack remedies to help with upset stomachs; food poisoning; overindulgence; sunstroke; cystitis; burns – and the general stings, cuts and grazes we may encounter from day to day.
Homoeopathic remedies should be treated with respect. They should be kept away from risk of contamination by strong smells (such as perfume, TCP etc.) direct sunlight and electromagnetic fields.
When taking a remedy by mouth the tablets should not be touched but tipped into the lid of the pot then into the mouth and sucked. Ideally the remedy should be taken away from food and drink.
Dosage should reflect how acute the symptoms are and the remedy should be stopped as soon as the person is well again.
If at any time you feel out of your depth or feel the symptoms are not responding quickly enough to the remedies then seek professional medical advice.
Homoeopathic remedies and preparations are available from most large pharmacies and health food stores. They are also available at competitive prices from Tessa Jordan on this website.
