Homeopathic Remedies A to Z List

When treating yourself using homeopathic remedies we suggest seeking guidance on the right remedy for your specific ailments from some of the excellent homeopathy reference books and websites that are generally available. In the UK legislation limits the information manufacturers, suppliers and retailers can provide if you wish to know more about homeopathy.

We have found that often books are a more authoritative and informative source and many public libraries will have a selection of books on homeopathy. To assist in accessing those resources a list of brief descriptions of UK homeopathic practitioners common uses of traditional homeopathic remedies based on Traditional Use Only for a number of the milder conditions is listed below.

Additionally we recommend contacting NHS24 or your Doctor before proceeding on a course of self-treatment to ensure this is suitable for your circumstances. Most homeopathic remedies will include general dosages however specialist advice is available from practitioners such as professional homeopaths.
