Homeopathics fall into two groups: cell salts (also called tissue salts) and remedies based on herbs. Both are manufactured in a similar process, which extracts the essential elements of the salts or plants and combines them with a carrier, which I think is sugar, to form little tiny pills. Some dissolve instantly, some are like tiny hardcandies, but both taste really yummy and children love them! They taste like little sugar pills.
I have had wonderful success with both cell salts and homeopathic herbs and will give some examples in future posts. But the great thing about them is that contrary to most over-the-counter drugs, which simply mask the symptoms and sometimes actually counter-act the body’s self-healing efforts, thus slowing the healing process, these products actually provide the body with the nutrients it needs to heal itself quickly. This is true medicine.
One example will suffice. Consider cough suppressants. Now, if the body is trying desperately to rid itself of awful, green gunk stuck in the esophagus, why on earth would you want to stop it? Do you want to walk around with gunk in your body? It’s infected! Might as well keep pus in a wound. Now, there may be brief times you will want to stop the cough – when you can’t sleep, when you’re at a play on Broadway… but for the most part you want to get it out quickly. What homeopathics do is provide the body with what it needs to quickly and efficiently eliminate the gunk, making it less sticky so it will come out easier, and give the body extra nutrients to fight the disease. Which method would you prefer? If you say the latter, then you want to use homeopathics.
The best and least expensive source for homeopathics on line is Vitacost. Delivery is super-quick, shipping very reasonable, prices are great.
