I have been using homeopathy for decades with excellent results. The brands I’ve used and had good luck with are Boiron, Hyland’s, and Nova. In general, I get Boiron for single remedies, Hyland’s for Children’s Remedies, and Nova for specific combinations aimed at treating a condition in adults.
For many remedies, I keep two sets; one for home and one for travel. These remedies have been invaluable in keeping my family healthy so I thought I would share them here. The best part of homeopathy is the lack of side effects, the lack of contraindications with other medications, and the safety for infants and children. Of course, you can always talk to your health care provider for your specific needs.
Organization. It’s best to keep the remedies organized so you can find them when you need them. One of the keys to homeopathy is to administer the remedy at the onset of symptoms. I organize by what they treat. For travel, I keep the remedies in ziplock bags marked appropriately. At home, I have small plastic containers I purchased at the Container Store. They have pull-out drawers that hold each group of remedies.
Allergy. I’ve had excellent results with homeopathic remedies for treating allergies, not just in myself. Apis mellifica is good for swelling from insect bites. Natrum muriaticum is for a runny nose caused by allergy.
Sabadl Allergy by Boiron. The following Nova Combinations have proven effective:
Hayfever, Asthma, Respiratory, and Pollution.
I also keep Benadryl in both liquid and cream form for emergencies. I’ve never had to use the liquid, but have used the cream to treat skin lesions after contact with an allergen.
