Things to Avoid While Taking Homeopathic Medicine
Homeopathic remedies are energetic medicines. As such, other substances that emit a strong energetic field may interfere, though not always. As a general precaution, it is recommended to avoid coffee and caffeine-containing products, camphor and camphor-containing products, electric blankets while being treated with homeopathy medicine. If you are on prescription medications, use drugs, or have surgeries, your remedy may need to be dosed more frequently.
Proper Storage of Remedies
Please keep homeopathic remedies away from sunlight, strong aromatics, and electrical appliances. Try to avoid touching the remedy directly when dosing yourself or others. If remedies fall out onto the floor, discard and do not place back into bottles.
Homeopathic remedies do not expire when kept properly, despite what is required by FDA labeling laws.
