(NaturalNews) Homeopathic first aid books and remedy kits abound in most health food stores and specialty book stores; so it should be easy for a lay person to find a common remedy for an earache, a runny nose, muscle aches or a sprained ankle. These natural health aids are meant primarily for the self-treatment of simple, acute ailments; however, what to do when it's more serious?
Diseases like whooping cough, autism, mercury poisoning, pandemic flu, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, auto immune diseases, heart disease, stroke, cancer and hundreds of other illnesses should not be dealt with by self-treatment. When you require the skill of a trained homeopath and homeopathic remedies not found in health food stores, refer to some of the following resources for help.
Where to buy homeopathic remedies
If it's not in the health food store, check with online or long-distance homeopathic pharmacies in the U.S. or worldwide for the remedy you're seeking. Some do not have websites. Also, remember to check amazon.com
, who now carries certain remedies. In most cases, nosodes are only available by prescription in the U.S. and Canada; however, you can usually purchase them from a pharmacy in England.
