List of Health Conditions from A to Z

Homeopathy, although homeopathy can be complicated, take a life time to study, nsp has developed homeopathic combinations which helps make it easier.


The word homeopathy comes from the greek word homoiso which means similar. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German chemist and doctor, being disillusioned with the standard and accepted medical treatment, searched for a remedy that would work in cooperation with the body rather that for or against it.

During his research, he formulated a theory that natural substances which in large doses would cause a particular symptom or condition;  if given in very diluted amounts would encourage and stimulate the body to adjust and cure the condition.

An example of this theory is bee stings, which causes redness, swelling and pain.   Diluted (apis mellifica) bee venom is given to someone who suffers from red swollen painful symptoms such as arthritis.  The diluted venom should stimulate the body to produce what it needs to combat the bee venom which also helps the symptoms of arthritis.

Although natural ingredients are used, the FDA recognized homeopathics much like over the counter drugs.  Therefore, they can be suggested for health concern such as asthma , incontinence, etc.

Often when you  start a homeopathic remedy, you may feel worse before you see improvements.  The homeopathic remedies have quicker action than herbs, because they stimulate the body to act rather than nourishing the body letting it adjust and finally kick in.  Understanding the functions of both homeopathic and nutritional supplements, most natural health professionals believe that the combining of these regimens can't be beat and compliment each other very well.


Place under the tongue.

If more than one homeopathic remedy is to be taken, take them 30 to 45 minutes apart to allow each one to work properly.

Do not take herbs or medicines 45 minutes before or after taking any homeopathic remedies.

Contact a competent health professional if symptoms persist.

To avoid the alcohol (which is only a small amount) some people evaporate the alcohol in homeopathic remedy either by putting the recommended amount of drops into 3 tablespoons of hot water (let stand for 2 minutes, sip slowly) or by putting the bottle with the lid removed in a pan of very hot water let on very low heat until the alcohol evaporates.

Do not eat or drink for 30-45 minutes after taking a homeopathic remedy.

Do not take mints, peppermint oil, Tei fu oil, toothpaste, mouthwash or any other volatile liquid for 45 minutes after taking a remedy.

Coffee has an antidotal (neutralizing) effect on homeopathics and should be restricted.

Do not let the tip of the dropper touch lips, tongue or mouth (homeopathic formulas are so precise that the saliva introduced into the formula can change its effectiveness)

Do not touch tablets with your fingers; the acid from your hands can affect them also.


Homeopathics are absolutely the safest and least toxic of all man made preparations known to medical science. As a matter of fact, critics of homeopathics say that they are too diluted to produce an effect.

Homeopathic practitioners know that the more diluted they are the more potent their effect.  

To dilute, the process first starts with the extraction of whatever base such as bee venom.  One drop of the extraction is then introduced into 10 drops of water.  One drop of step 2 liquids is then put into 10 more drops of water etc.  So when you seen an ingredient and you see 10x you know that this process has been done (diluted) 10 times.  Very little if any of the base extraction is left in the solution.  Only the essence and vibration are left.

I personally have used "incontinence homeopathic formula", and it worked extremely well.  Often herbs take a long time, I use homeopathics to help with symptoms until the the over all health of the body improves.

The focus of this site is to "educate, validate, and suggest alternative methods for the treatment of health conditions," which are not readily available to those who go through mainstream programs.

To help ensure good results, high quality foods and supplements are vital. Knowing that the cost of supplements can get overwhelming, we provide a wholesale store.
