Homeopathic Dosage

General information on the correct intake of homeopathic remedies.


Homeopathic remedies are taken as follows, unless otherwise prescribed:


Homoeopathic globules, tablets or powder

After taking the homeopathic remedy don't swallow it but let it "melt" on the tongue in a form of a sublingual intake. Do not drink water immediate after taking the remedy. If homeopathic remedies are taken before or after a meal, leave a gap of 5 to 10 minutes.

Infants are best placed under the tongue for homeopathic globules. Powder and tablets (crushed) are moistened and painted in the baby's mouth. Note: Drops contain alcohol as a solvent and are therefore unsuitable for infants and children.

Dosage recommendations of single or multiple remedies in combination


Intake of a single remedy

Unless otherwise prescribed:

  • Globules: 5 globules per dose
  • Powder: 1 knife tip per dose
  • Tablets: 1 tablet per dose


FREQUENCY of the remedies given:

At the beginning give the remedy every hour. With incipient improvement extend time intervals to 2, then to 3, then to 4 and 6 hours. After improvement, the remedy should be continued for 1 to 2 days in the morning / noon / evening.


Taking several remedies in alternation

At the beginning of each single remedy one dose should be taken every hour in alternation. With beginning improvement, extend the time intervals to 2 to 3 hours alternately. After improvement has occurred, each individual remedy should be taken alternating daily for 2 to 3 days (morning / afternoon / evening).


Homeopathic drops

Adults can drip drops for intake directly undiluted on the tongue. It is recommended not to swallow the homeopathic solution immediately, but for a more intensive mucosal contact move it several times in the mouth. If the drops are taken before or after a meal, a gap of 5 to 10 minutes should be kept.

Former alcoholics should not take drops but dodge to globules.

Dosage recommendations for drops: Please refer to the respective information on the package label or package insert.

This dosage recommendation comes from MR. Romed Recheis. In his book - "Homeopathy for Household Use" - Dr. Recheis describes his various application recommendations in more detail and we recommend you to read the book.
