From Boiron: What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathic medicines are therapeutically active micro-doses of natural substances. Like other over-the-counter medicines, they are used to treat symptoms such as allergies, coughs, colds, flu, stress, arthritis pain, muscle pain, teething, etc. Homeopathic medicines are among the safest choices for self-treatment and are generally free of side effects. They do not interact with conventional medicines or herbal remedies and are not contraindicated with existing conditions, making them safe for even high-risk patients with heart disease or liver problems. Parents especially value the safety of homeopathic medicines as they are easy to dispense. Because most homeopathic medicines are in a base of pellets made of small amounts of lactose and sucrose, parents can easily tell if they have dispensed the right amount. These pellets are designed to melt under the tongue so children are not required to chew or swallow pills. Best of all, children love the sweet taste. For liquid products, parents don’t have to worry about dispensing too much if a measured liquid spills while persuading a child to take the medicine since there’s no risk of overdose.
