Directions for Taking Homepathic Remedies
Do not use the following products while using homeopathic remedies:
MINT: Any type of MINT (spearmint, peppermint, and wintergreen) or MENTHOL. (Mint and menthol can be found in toothpaste, mouthwash, tea, and chewing gum.) You should avoid chewing gum, as most gum has mint. Sometimes mint is not specifically mentioned in the ingredients, and is covered by "flavorings". Mint-free toothpaste is available at your health food store.
COFFEE: or decaffeinated coffee... Instead, you may drink black teas, green teas, and fruit teas
Taking Homeopathic Remedies
Store the remedies in a dark, cool place (not the fridge), away from strong-smelling perfumes, cosmetics, foods, and detergents. Do not carry the remedy in your handbag with cosmetics and perfumes. A dresser drawer with clean clothes is a good place to store the remedies.
Do not touch the remedy with your fingers! Throw away any remedy that has been contaminated.
Do not eat, drink, or brush your teeth 20 minutes before and after you take the remedy. The remedy must be taken in a clean mouth.
Pour the remedy into your mouth under your tongue and let it dissolve slowly.
