Do's and Don'ts for Homeopathic Patients

© Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman ND, MSW

The Patient's Freedom During Homeopathic Treatment
You may feel that the list of potential antidotes places too many restrictions on your life and makes you feel rebellious. Most patients who choose homeopathy find that it becomes relatively easy to avoid these substances and that allowing their remedies to work over time is well worth the effort. They find that the increased freedom in their lives resulting from homeopathy is greater than the freedom to drink coffee or use menthol. If you do feel too restricted by your homeopathic treatment, discuss this with your practitioner. Perhaps you are avoiding some substances unnecessarily.

Factors Which Do Not Interfere with Homeopathic Treatment

  1. Medications: Aspirin, Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatories will usually not interfere with homeopathic treatment. Prescription medications may or may not be compatible with homeopathy. Check with your homeopath.
  2. Heating pads and water bed heaters.
  3. Medical tests: Blood tests, x-rays, mammograms, Pap smears.
  4. Dental examination and cleaning (except ultrasonic cleaning).
  5. Cleaning products: Ammonia and bleach. (It's best to wear rubber gloves and to dilute these products).
  6. Personal care products: Most toothpastes, deodorants that are not strongly aromatic, aftershaves without menthol. Soaps, perfumes, and colognes that do not contain the substances listed. Be sure to read the labels carefully.
  7. Therapies: Massage (using non-aromatic oils), chiropractic adjustments and other forms of bodywork are generally compatible with homeopathy. If your complaints are primarily musculoskeletal, it is best to discuss the frequency of these treatments with your homeopath.

"All these things must be eliminated or else avoided as much as possible if cure is not to be prevented or impeded."
Samuel Hahnemann, Organon of Medicine, Sixth Edition.
