I'd probably do pulsatilla if I had it on hand. Hope she feels better soon!

Thanks PB - hopefully tonight goes relatively smoothly. If not, I'll make the trip to the health food store to get some. She's sleeping at the moment, although she's back in the swing, too stuffy to fall asleep lying flat.

Tanya - glad to hear the kids are stable Hope WHP gets their kits up soon. Ordered my book from Amazon in the meantime.

You know, it's too bad some sort of basic natural healing course isn't taught in school - it'd be doing me a heck of a lot more good right now than Algebra 2 ever did Although, I probably wouldn't have found "how to take care of your sick baby" very relevant back then

My boys woke up last night with sore throats. I have it this morning. We are achey and icky. The pendulum says Lach and Cal P. I can't say they are working wonders but I'm wondering if I should up the frequency also I am realizing I'm not addressing the aches that would help.
My mom semi dropped my homeopathy book in her bath last night. She was drying it in her room last night, so I didn't have access to it. My cheat sheet seemed to work ok

I've been reaaly wanting to expand my remedies. I will do it at the first of the year. I'm not sure if I want to increase my 30c vials or add a bunch of 200c. Fun to ponder.

Vials are twice the size of WHP and excellent quality. Not as portable though.

I would like to make my own travel kit from WH. The other ones look great. I am thinking The ones you just posted would mostly stay at home. Smile.

My mom is visiting and rolling out my cut out cookies while I cuddle in bed. I am feeling blessed.

PB--in case *my* email doesn't go through, I just got an email from you this morning. But since all of you (here and other threads) beat me over the head with the pertussis possibility, I really considered it and that's a possibility, which is a relief, because I have a plan, and DD didn't throw up at all yesterday.

They say this can take 4-6 weeks to receive - does WHP take as long? Wish I knew when WHP was really going to be back with their kits.

excellent! You still may want to think about upping the ipecac which would make a lot of sense. That would allow it to break through where the 30C failed. I'm so glad the vitamin C is making a difference!

no. When they are unencumbered they usually ship out immediately and you receive them within a week. They are pricier, contain less product, but the portability of the kits can't be beat. The top 100 kit also contains a few 200C remedies. That's a nice feature and has come in handy more than once (just last weekend at a family event, in fact. That kit is always in my bag.

a belated thanks to Panserbjorne for responding to my question!

My homeopath recommended the home remedy kit from here: http://www.dataroad.net/cgi-bin/star..._aid_kits.html

I ordered it last week and received it in 1-2 days.

Ok, so total newbie question - how do you know how many pellets to give per dose? Got some pulsatilla for 6 mo. old, gave 1 pellet before she totally nodded off while nursing - but wonder if it was enough.

I just give my 6mo one pellet, though I suppose it could probably be diluted with some water and dispensed that way instead... the usual dose is 3 pellets, iirc. that's what i use for those of us in the family with teeth anyway.

there's also
http://a2zhomeopathy.com/Homeopathy_Kits/index.html
which is comparable to WHP in many ways. Same cases too.

I usually say a couple (2-3ish) for no reason other than a. you want to make sure it got in, and b. in case one was a dud. All pellets are medicated separately and it's very rare but *possible* to have one that wasn't. I figure by giving 2-3, something is going to get in the kiddos mouth and at least one will be medicated!

I've been lurking on this thread and learning quite a bit and my wish list is now seriously growing.

I'm assuming if you got a kit from here that you'd go with the 30C? I'm assuming it's more an amber bottle with screw on cap, correct? I have a remedy from Celletech and find it difficult to get the pellets out without getting too many. Totally practical and silly question...but with the amber bottles how do you do it without wasting any - dh always sends a few bouncing across the kitchen floor.
post #258 of 864
occasionally I will pour out too many, and I just pour them back in. I rarely dry dose so for me it's a matter of having a glass with an ounce of water next to me and putting just a few pellets in. The caps don't go near anyone's mouth from bottles like that. Boiron remedies I see as sort of cheap and disposable so I'll let me kids have the cap and self dose.

I don't have any amber bottles (yet) but...
My ND pours his remedies into a folded clean piece of paper. None get wasted and if he accidentally pours out too many, he can pour them back in without worrying that he's touched them.

PB can you throw out a few common cough remedies for me to research to help this cough that I have? It started a couple of days ago and I assume it is being caused by postnasal drip (virus going around the family). My nose is totally clear, except occasionally I may have a tiny bit of clear discharge. I am having coughing fits due to a tickle in the throat. Most coughing is dry but every now and then it will be wet when I cough a bit of the drip. Drinking liquid seems to help the tickle. I think I am driving my coworkers crazy! I feel okay otherwise.
