Homeopathic Remedies Chart

I have collected a list of homeopathic remedies useful in treating various ailments. Consider this a starting point and please be sure to research amounts, and any contraindications specific to you.

What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine in which ailments are treated on the principle of ‘like cures like’ by using minute doses of natural substances that in larger amounts would produce symptoms of the ailment, in other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms. It stimulates your body to heal itself from the cause of illness, not just the symptoms.

How is it made/dosed?
The starting remedy is made from the substance steeped in alcohol and strained – this is called the tincture, or mother tincture (and in some cases is what herbalists use.) The most commonly used scales for diluting substances are the centesimal scale (c) which means one part tincture to 99 parts alcohol or the decimal scale (x) which means one part tincture to 9 parts alcohol. The mixture is then shaken vigorously (succussed). The potency of the remedy is identified by how often this process takes place. A 6c or 6x has been diluted and succussed 6 times. Paradoxically the more times the remedy has been diluted the higher its potency. A 30c is suitable for family/ home prescribing, and the higher potencies – 200c, 1Mc, etc – should be prescribed by homeopaths.
