Ask Questions about Health, Homeopathy, Medicine – Get Answers from Experts and Peers!
July 21, 2017
I would like to learn more about homeopathy for the purpose of self-medicating, and for my family too.
My problem is that I get so confused and overwhelmed when I am looking at the remedies for whatever ailment, and I start second-guessing my choices. I don’t feel confident and put it in the too-hard basket.
I do have a regular practitioner that I see but I don’t want to bombard her with questions.
What advice can you give to a newcomer for this? What are some books or links that explain very easily what I need to get started and how I can choose a remedy with confidence?
First, get a good therapeutics book aimed at lay people but capable of being help to pros to.
I recommend Homeopathy – An A to Z Home Handbook by Alan Schmukler
Then read basic materia medica of 20-30 most common medicines from books like
to get an overview of each remedy.
Then if in doubt between two remedies, you can post here. 🙂
