Homeopathy Tips for 3/24/09 Handling Remedies

      Homeopathic remedies are potentized energetic solutions either administered through drops or medicated to milk sugar pellets.  They must be handled appropriately for them to maintain their energy and effectiveness. If a remedy is stored properly it can remain potent and effective  for many decades.

     Remedies are sensitive to strong sunlight and should be stored in a dark glass bottle out of direct sunlight. Under normal room lighting they can remain unaffected. Try to avoid opening the bottle and taking remedies in direct sunlight. Always close the bottle tightly after use. Because the remedies are energetic they need to be protected from other energetic sources.

       Remedies should not be stored anywhere near strong electromagnetic fields, X-rays or microwave radiations. These can effect a remedy through the bottle. Keep remedies at least one foot from all electrical cords or small appliances such as lights. Appliances such as a microwave ovens should be avoided and the remedy stored at least 5 or more feet away. Music systems with speakers have magnets and should be avoided also. Never store a remedy on the speaker.  

       Travelling with remedies has become more difficult in the recent years since 911. Airport security now X-rays everything a person brings with them except what is on the person themselves. Storing a remedy in your luggage or carry-on should be avoided when travelling. It is best to either insist on a hand inspection of the remedy or avoid the x-ray by carrying the remedy on your person. You will be asked to walk through a metal detector that has an electromagnetic field.  It is  a brief exposure to an electromagnetic field and not of a very long duration. It will not effect the remedy potency.

      Carrying your remedy for extended periods of time in not recommended. You will be getting the energy of the remedy constantly because it is in your energetic field.  When travelling only carry the remedy when in the terminal. Once in transit it is best to store it in another bag so you are not constantly being exposed to the remedy.

       Strong odors can effect remedy potency. All camphor, eucalyptus, tea tree and other strong medicinal smells should be avoided. Chemical smell like turpentine, chlorinated products etc. should also be avoided.

       When handling remedies never touch them. Always put  the remedy pellet from the bottle into the cap and administer it into the mouth without touching it. The mouth should always be in it’s natural state when taking the remedy. If you can taste any flavors when taking the remedy you should wait to put it into the mouth. Water is usually OK to drink before and rinse the mouth out. Allow the remedy to dissolve under the tongue and wait at least 15 minutes before putting anything else in the mouth. Avoid strong flavors such as mint for the next hour at least.  

     Avoid storing the remedy in high heat. Any temperature above 140 degrees Farenheit will render the remedy useless. Storing the remedy in a dark purse, in the car on a sunny day, could easily produce these temperatures. This is probably the single most common error that effects remedy potency. If taking a remedy on a daily basis store the remedy in a visible location near the bed. I have found that if the remedy is readily available, taking it first thing in the morning immediately after waking, is the best and most convenient time to take the remedy. The mouth will be in it’s most natural state and the remedy can be used in a more sacramental way if  joined with a morning meditation or waking ritual.

      Following these simple guidelines can protect the effectiveness of your remedies. Homeopathic remedies are usually very inexpensive. Using remedies over the years a person or practitioner can accumulate a large number of remedies. Overall this can add up to quite an investment. Handling remedies correctly can safeguard this investment and keep your pharmacy potent and ready for use. One of the worst things to happen is giving a remedy expecting it to work and then having no response. Then you must figure out if it was the prescription or if it was the viability of the remedy. If your remedies are stored and handled properly you will not have this problem.

    HOW ABOUT WHEN THEY COME IN THE MAIL? ARE THEY EXPOSE TO ANYTHING? SUN,LIGHT, HEAT? WHEN THEY COME BY UPS, DO THEY USE X-RAYS AT THEIR OFFICE? HOW WOULD WE KNOW IF THEY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED? DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS IN THAT ROBERT?
    THANK YOU!

    Hi Monina,
    I have not found that mailing remedies will cause deactivation. I do not believe they x-ray postage. I have not had any problems with remedies coming from the UK either. I would not worry about this.

    Dear Dr.Robert Field i like to know as frequently we keep Camphora 3x or higher in our stock of medicines,whether that can de-activate the strength of potency of other medicines.Regards,malaker

    Hi Dr Malakar,
    I have stored the remedy Camphor in potency with all of my other remedies close by and have never had a problem. Strong Camphor smell though would surely deactivate the remedies. If they are stored with a tight sealing cap then cross potentization should not occur.

    Hi Yvonne!

    A friend of mine got ants in her remedies and they ate so much the remedies couldn’t be used — the bite marks were really clear. I now advise storing remedies in zip-lock plastic bags. If the ants are really bad, use the fridge:-)) You could also use screw-top containers.

    Is it bad to allow people to handle your vials of remedies? Does their energy affect the remedy?
