In homeopathy, we have 2 major ways of prescribing for problems: acute prescribing and constitutional prescribing. My last blog was on the latter. This blog is about ACUTE prescribing. I am keeping it simple and short.

Acute prescribing is used when someone needs immediate quick attention for a sudden or very recent event. Some examples are:

- A fall leading to a broken bone.

- Developing a sore throat/cold/ear infection after exposure to very cold weather.

- Travel sickness.

- Food poisoning.

- Shock

The above are just a sample of many many examples I could give. There are homeopathic remedies that act fast and effectively for immediate relief. Arnica is the best known of all. It was Arnica that helped me after a car accident to regain strength in my gums and teeth. My dentist was amazed at the difference in my teeth 6 months after my gums and teeth were damaged. It probably makes Arnica my favourite acute remedy.

A suggestion: Buy a remedy kit for your home. If you have young children, it is invaluable. I used my kit all the time when my kids were growing up. Many homeopathic pharmacies sell them: Freemans, Ainsworths, Helios are a few.

So where do you go if you do not have a remedy kit at home? Where do you go if you do not know in which circumstances you can treat someone for an acute? Where do you go to find an acute remedy? I offer a 30 minute acute consultation here for UK clients


And here for International clients


If you want a safe, natural and effective way of treating acute problems, give homeopathy a try. And in the meantime, I am going to work on a blog specifically on a first aid homeopathy kit, and how you can use it.
