How to administer Homoeopathic remedies. Your views.

There are some cases when the patient is adamant that he will not take any remedies. And others where you have to administer medicines without the other person knowing as in this case the person concerned is highly offended when you give them medicines(they think do you consider me mad!). I am talking in cases of mental sphere.

So whats your view on how to administer the medicines in this case. One Solution to convince them that the meds are for their good is out of question.

So the last resort will be either to give them in tea/coffee/beverages or in food. But doing so will hamper the effectiveness of medicines(or may be not). And if given with water will 2,3 drops in a glassful of water is permissible!Though its highly unlikely that he will take water from others.

Can you all shed your views and experience in this regard.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
People do this---giving medicines without knowledge dissolving them in water, food items all the time---to their pets. This always works. Also in mental patients who refuse medicine, this is the way to go.

Giving medicines in other food/drink items should work.

There is a past work by Gallavardin on alcoholism. It deals with giving medicines in food and beverages unknown to alcoholics and yet obtaining same results as if the medicines were administered normally.

Thanks Maheeru.

So if given in food or a cup of tea or a glassful of water...we instill 2 to 4 drops in it or we increase or decrease the quantity of drops. And secondly if given in cup of tea or glass of water will that much beverage will increase(overdo) the effect manifold or the medicine works the same way given directly on tongue or when given in a spoonful from 4 oz of water.

You are right regarding animals as once a stray dog was badly injured in a dog fight so I used to give him Arnica 30 with some food as and when he came over. Though I used to instill 6 to 7 drops in some food I gave. I don't know if that helped or the nature healed him. Seemed this added to the effect.

I think the same dosage should be given in food/beverages as well. That will help in assessing things.

If you give 2 to 4 drops generally, you could maintain the same. After seeing results, if you think an increase is needed, you could do that.

This would be close to giving directly on tongue than giving one spoonful from 4oz of water.

The only catch in this process(based on my thinking) would be to make sure others do not use the same utensil for food/drinks. And after the treatment period(when one thinks this medicine is no longer needed to be given) the utensils must be subjected to piping hot water and or heavy steam repeatedly to clean them of medicinal effect.

Hi again

If some person has had tooth filling or have been employed tooth caps then is it safe to give silicia particularly its biochemic form.

As silicia tends to remove any foreign objects in the body so will it do the same here or will it be safe. Will the dilution also safe in this regard.

It will not affect fillings, caps, etc. You can safely
Take the biochemic or other potencies.

Which strength are you considering 6x/6c means there is a possibility of pushing a foreign thing. But this is not an absolute certainty. So if people ask me, I only tell them to exercise caution when they have pace maker like critical device.
maheeru 3 months ago
I was thinking of 6x biochemic tablets.
Aristides 3 months ago
Possibility of interaction is there because lower dilutions tend to push and higher dilutions tend to absorb so 6x falls in the former category. But I have heard only a couple of cases where there was an interaction. For a patient after using silica low for more than a few months he developed some irritation close to a metal implant inside one of his legs(placed after an accident) and he was advised to stop. But many others did not have any discomfort.

So if there is a problem stopping would be a good idea but since this would happen in a minority, this need not be a blanket restriction.

Thanks. It would be better then to use it for few days to see for possible aggravation. Then wait for few days and then continue again in infrequent doses. Then wait. Everybody says homoeopathic is safe But its safe and gives best result only when used by an experienced homoeopath. Its all about experience and keen intellect. Its a deep science and art.

Thanks again for your keen observations. I will keep in mind what you said. Also thanks to simone.

Start and stop frequently may not work with lower strengths. You may want to assess closely the first couple of weeks though to see if there is intolerance from the outset. Later you will have to do periodic review. Bio chemics are given in different ways----one week on and one week off, two weeks on and one week off, one month or a couple of weeks off after three months of dosage and six months in a stretch before taking a break etc. Horses for the courses you see :)

Yep there are art/science components. On these forums I have mentioned a few times that the nuances of homeopathy seldom come with structured education(as in school/college or medical training) and is usually attained with mentor/protege model.

Ok I will follow your routine to see the effects for these initial couple of weeks. Starting and stopping as you said. It was because silicia way of working I was worried.You are right structured education is most important be it any discipline. And top of that a good mentorship which work wonders.
Thanks for your time and views. Take care and keep smiling!!!

Oops seems my message was not very clear. Structured education formal or informal is good. But I put mentor/protege model ahead of school education or medical training in gaining nuances of a discipline like homeopathy---that not only comprises of art and science components but also richly rewards experience.

You too take care and have a great time ahead :)

Oh I get it now. It was my idiocy I was reading the word nuances as 'nuisance' lol :). First I was confused then tried to fit that word to bring out the meaning that wasn't there! And still confused I replied, understanding that I understood 'exactly' what were you trying to say!!!!
Seems I will remember the word nuances from now on 😊!!!
Take care!
