HOMOEOPATHIC FIRST AID NOTES (20 Remedy Combinations):
With homeopathy you have to match the symptoms below with the conditions you are seeing in yourself or an animal. Give remedies away from food and water as much as possible. Do not use garlic, mint, coffee or other stimulants at the same time. Do not handle remedies directly, place from bottle lid straight into the mouth. Loosely cover the bottom of a bottle lid with granules as a dose. Store remedies in a cool dark place away from strong smells.
As a general guide, in acute conditions give a dose every 1/4 hour for 4 doses, then 3 times daily; in less urgent conditions give a dose 3 or 4 times daily. If there is no response in a few doses you probably have the wrong remedy, so think again. In all cases, where you are in doubt, or the injury does not respond to a few doses, seek medical advice.
