18.2 Selecting and Using Remedies

SELECTING AND USING REMEDIES.

The symptoms, not the disease by name should be treated, and when in the course of a disease the symptoms change, another remedy will be needed. Do not change a remedy, however, as long as the patient is improving, and when it seems desirable to administer another remedy, omit the giving of any for two or three hours.
The repetition of a dose is almost invariably mentioned in connection with the disease. When not otherwise specified, three pellets or one disk may be understood as constituting a dose.
If a dose is forgotten, never double the next one.
As the patient improves, the intervals between giving the remedy may be lengthened, i. e., from once an hour to once in two hours, and so on.
A dose two or three times a day is sufficient in chronic cases, and the longer a condition has continued the more time should be allowed for favorable results from the action of the remedy to become manifest.
In general it may be said that the use of tea, coffee, alcoholic beverages, or highly spiced food should not be used as they are hostile to the action of homeopathic preparations.
It is absolutely necessary if you wish to use Homeopathic Treatment to purchase a Homeopathic Medicine Chest, see page 892 (unless you live in a large city where there are Homeopathic Druggists); this keeps the medicine from sunlight, dust and breakage.
