Remedies for prostate health

Home prescribing guidelines
It is always advisable to seek professional advice for chronic, long-standing
complaints from a local homeopathic practitioner.
     However, if you can clearly match your own symptoms
with one below and your health is generally good otherwise (your health picture
is not complicated, for example, by numerous problems and medications), then
use the guidelines below in taking your selected remedy.
•     Take the remedy in a 6C, 12C, 30X or 30C
potency.
•     Repeat it 2--4 times a day according to the
strength of the symptoms (the stronger the symptoms the more frequently you can
repeat the remedy).
•     Take it less often if there is moderate improvement,
and stop taking it as soon as there is a significant improvement.
•     Start it again if your symptoms return—starting
and stopping as often as needed.
•     If you have taken a remedy for 10--14 days
with no response then you need to select a different one or seek professional
help.
•     Check with your practitioner before self-prescribing
if you are under homeopathic care.
