To determine the best dose and potency, it is best to get a homeopathic guidebook such as the one listed above as the original source of this information.  The most popular homeopathic guidebook is“Everybody’s Guide to Homeopathic Medicines” but we sell this and many others here.  We also sell some very practical and highly discounted home homeopathic medicine kits!  Click here to see the choices for medicine kits, or feel free to CALL us to order them (or ask questions).

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.

The information provided here is not only applicable to children but to most people with cough.


CALENDULA: This remedy is best suited for clean cuts with little or no infection. Use a tincture (slightly diluted with water), gel, spray, or ointment and apply directly to the wound. Do not use Calendula externally on deep cuts because it has such rapid healing capabilities that it will tend to close up a deep cut before it is adequately healed underneath.

HYPERICUM: This remedy is for infected or deep cuts; apply Hypericum spray or slightly diluted tincture externally. If there is much shooting or cutting pain, take Hypericum 6 or 30 internally.

STAPHYSAGRIA: When children get a deep clean cut or a stabbing wound, consider giving this medicine internally.
