To purchase INDIVIDUAL remedies, you will need to call us at 510-649-0294 or you can order them HERE. We represent several leading American, British, and European homeopathic pharmacies. Please let us know if you prefer your remedies from Hahnemann Labs, Helios, Boiron, or Standard. Please let us know which potency or size of bottle you want (we generally recommend 6C or 30C for those people who are relatively new to homeopathy)…and you’ll need to let us know whether you want pills/pellets or a “liquid dilution” (please know that only select homeopathic pharmacies sell liquid dilutions). We can help you make some of these determinations on the phone, though we cannot provide advice on which remedy to get, unless you wish to pay for a short or long consultation with our owner, Dana Ullman, MPH, CCH. We will do all we can to serve you.
