Chelseasays:

I need to know homeopathic I may take for dog dander reactions thank you

Boironsays:

Hi Chelsea, we recommend our RhinAllergy Tablets for relief of main allergy symptoms including sneezing, a runny nose, itchy, watery eyes and an itchy throat from dog dander. You can find them in a store near you or order online.

Nataliasays:

Re dog dander allergy; if the non-specific products available OTC don’t help enough, you can ask your homeopathic practitioner to send in some of your dog’s dander to a professional homeopathic pharmacy which specializes in making medicines to order. They can make an allergy relief product for you which (in my experience) may be quite effective.

Nataliasays:

Hello Chelsea,
If the OTC products don’t work well enough, you can get a very specific remedy made to order from your dog’s dander from a homeopathic pharmacy which specializes in that. Just ask your homeopathic practitioner about it.

Thank you

Boironsays:

Hello Gracjana, Kali phosphoricum 30C is one of the top remedies that relieves symptoms of intellectual fatigue, including headaches, difficulty concentrating, and sleeplessness. Coffea cruda 30C is another medicine that can help with mental hyperactivity. However, because of the type of symptoms associated with ADHD and the longer treatment required for a chronic condition, we recommend you speak to a practitioner skilled in homeopathy who will be able to come up with a personalized protocol for your son. To locate a practitioner in your area, please contact the National Center for Homeopathy at (856) 437- 4752 or visit http://www.homeopathycenter.org.

Julie Coltonsays:

What are you recommending for Covid 19 symptoms?

Boironsays:

Hello Julie, we’re unaware of any specific homeopathic treatment for COVID-19 infections. We do not recommend any of our products to be used for the treatment or prevention of coronavirus symptoms since confirmed infections have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying. We urge you to follow the advice of government officials and health care providers during a health crisis such as this. Thank you!

Donna Klucharichsays:

Hello
What would you suggest for high blood pressure. Not hypertension I was told Nux Vomica was ok to use. What else would you suggest? Patients don’t want to visit their MD when their pressure is normal but anxiety may push it up. Some supplement to maintain and stay healthy
Thanks

Boironsays:

Hello Donna, high blood pressure or hypertension is a chronic condition that can be managed with homeopathic treatment alone or with conventional therapy. The treatment is of course highly personalized.

During or before a medical exam, the blood pressure often increases due to natural apprehension. This is a perfectly well-known phenomenon, which is taken in account by doctors. If apprehension is the problem, Gelsemium 30C, Ignatia 30C or Argentum nitricum 30C can be helpful. Take 5 pellets the night before, 5 pellets in the morning and 5 pellets before the exam (or 3 times a day if needed). We also offer Sedalia, a multisymptom medicine that contains several homeopathic ingredients that target symptoms of stress and apprehension.

Breathing is also a great way to lessen apprehension and can help you relax to decrease blood pressure. Hope this helps!

Susan Emersonsays:

When I had my hip replacement I mixed 3 of your pills together and took 5–3X a day. They were wonderful and took the pain right away. Can you please figure out what I took? I am having my knee replacement surgery and I want to have the pain medicine on hand so I don’t have to go on the hospital’s heavy pain medicine that I hate.
Thank you so much for your help.
Susan

Boironsays:

Hello Annie, as a manufacturer, we offer over-the-counter medicines with clear indications for acute conditions that can be safely relieved with self-medication.

However, health care professionals may instruct their patients to use the medicine for other conditions not listed on the label.

There may be a homeopathic treatment that addresses your condition, but we recommend consulting a practitioner knowledgeable in homeopathy.

Teresa J. Kramersays:

I have a tube of Boiron Arnica 6x, purchased by mistake instead of Arnica 6c. Is it safe to use Arnica 6x in case of a fall on the ice, and how would you suggest using it?

Boironsays:

Hi Teresa, yes Arnica 6X is safe to take for falls. Take it the same way as you would Arnica 6C, which is 5 pellets 3 times a day. Dilution levels like C or X are merely fine tuning and as long as you have the correct medicine (which you do), you will see a lessening of symptoms. You can read more about dilution levels here: https://www.boironusa.com/info/

56 years old

Boironsays:

Hi Peggy, it’s not uncommon for symptoms to temporarily worsen after the first couple of doses of ColdCalm or any other homeopathic medicine. It’s a sign of healing and that it’s helping your body work through the illness. However, if your headache continues, stop use and consider switching to a different medicine.

Betty Pedersensays:

Hi. I have been diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. Online information suggested that I use Ferrum phosphoricum. The label doesn’t say it helps that problem. Is it the right medicine for anemia?

Boironsays:

Hi Betty, Boiron is a manufacturer of over-the-counter medicines with clear indications for acute conditions that can be safely relieved with self-medication. Health care professionals may instruct their patients to use the medicine for other conditions not listed on the label, such as anemia in your case. Homeopathic treatments for chronic conditions are very specific to each patient, therefore we recommend consulting a practitioner knowledgeable in homeopathy.

Esmeraldasays:

Hi
What’s is good for fungus on the nails?

Boironsays:

Hello Esmeralda, thank you for your question. Unfortunately at this time, Boiron does not offer any solutions for nail fungus.

Jennasays:

Hello, what do you recommend for swelling/itching from a yellow jacket sting? Also, I heard you should not drink coffee when taking a homeopathic remedy. Is that true? If so, how many hours or days should I leave between taking the remedy and having a cup of coffee? Thank you for your wonderful remedies!

Boironsays:

Hi Jenna, Apis mellifica 30C is most commonly used to relieve swelling and itchiness of wasp and bee stings. Homeopathic medicines are absorbed under the tongue, also known as sublingual absorption. To allow for better absorption, homeopathic medicines should be taken in a mouth free of strong flavors or anything that may coat the mouth. We recommend taking the medicine 15 minutes before or after eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. There is no need to abstain from drinking coffee for hours or days when using a remedy, hope that helps!
