Let’s talk about how to take a dose of a homeopathic remedy. Most of the time you will encounter remedies in the form of dry pellets. The remedy is actually sprayed onto the exterior surface of the pellets. And the pellets are usually lactose or sucrose.
There are two main ways of taking a remedy. One way is by taking 1 or 2 dry pellets by mouth. You can put them in your mouth, or your child’s mouth, and let them dissolve. You do not have to hold them under your tongue, although you can if you want. This method is great for older children and adults where there is no concern of choking. Also, it is quick and easy.
Another method of dosing is what we call water dosing. You can put 1 or 2 dry pellets into 1/4 cup of water in a glass (any amount of water is fine, but some people like a specific measurement), then take 1 spoonful for a dose. This remaining mixture can be covered and saved for a few days in case you need to re-dose. This method is wonderful for babies or toddlers who may choke on the dry pellets, but it is a viable option for everyone. And if you need to re-dose the remedy often, just use a fresh spoon each time, stir the mixture gently, and then each spoonful is one dose. This is also a resourceful way to extend your remedies. Instead of giving a person 1 or 2 dry pellets for each dose, you can use the same number of pellets to create a water dose which will then provide multiple doses.
