    Default homeopathic remedies and overdose

    I have to say that I was researching this and I found hundreds of
    articles supporting the fact that you CANNOT overdose on homeopathic
    remedies. I didn't find any that said otherwise. Now I am very
    interested in this.

    I have several autoimmune diseases. The natural thinking of western
    medicine is that since the immune system is attacking my body and
    organs, I have to take immune suppressants to keep 'the monster
    down'. If I take immune boosters, my immune system just gets
    stronger to attack my body more fiercely. I have been on
    prednisone and some sort of immunosuppresant (mild chemo) for 7
    years now, on and off. I am curious as to what the GSE would do to
    my immune system. I definitely want to use it for my son who has
    autism and has adverse effects from antibiotics, which cause yeast
    build up and effect children with autism.

    Liss, I would love to hear more about this. Could you list those
    books again???

    Thank you,

    Zanna

    Anything in excess is bad, even water. An example of that is what
    professionals refer to as water babies which are people who drink so much water
    it throws their system out of whack and they get a drunken feeling from it. The
    fact is that you can overdose on basically anything you take into your body but
    air I am glad you find homeopathic methods that work for you, but
    understand in moderation what might work can build in your system overtime
    creating an excess. I am into homeopathic methods as prevention but rely on
    science too.

    I can't help but agree with this. Anything in excess will become toxic. Of
    course, makers and promoters of homeopathic medicines are not the best, most
    unbiased place to do research on this question.

    When my son was about 3 he ate an entire (new) bottle of one particular
    remedy. I called the poison control center and they told me, give him half a
    cup of coffee & he'll be perfectly fine. I did, he didn't have any issues.
    I'm sure that, like anything else, if you continually took it day in an day
    out your body would manifest a reaction. Your body will do that whenever it
    is out of balance. My point was, its a safe alternative. Obviously, anyone
    thinking of trying herbal or homeopathic remedies should research them based
    on their own symptoms, body types, medical history, etc.

    What I would really recommend from my own experiences would be to look up
    your autoimmune conditions in The Prescription for Nutritional Healing.
    (They also recommend GSE & can offer dosage amounts, etc), but the whole
    book is really excellent. It offers a complete reference as to what effects
    the prednisone has on you and how to counter the side effects of it, etc.

    Here's a link to view what the book looks like,

    But you can get it through intralibrary loan or at natural/whole food
    stores. They usually have a copy available as a reference for customers.

    My favorites are:

    Anything by Susan Weed
    Rosemary Gladstar
    Christiane Northrup

    Family Herbal - R. Gladstar
    Healing Wise - S. Weed
    Herbal Healing for Women R. Gladstar
    Herbal Remedies for Mens Health - R. Gladstar
    Wise Woman Herbal for the Child Bearing Years- S. Weed
    Back to Eden - Jethro Kloss
    Prescription for Nutritional Healing (all Editions are excellent) by Keats
    Publishing - this book encompasses vitamins and minerals as well as herbs.
    This is usually the first one I grab when someone has symptoms of illness.

    HTH,

    Very true... even something like melatonin... which is a natural remedy for
    sleep.. It is something good to use once in a while, not on a regular basis.
    Melatonon is a natural hormone your body produces. If you take it all the
    time, it stops your body from producing it.

    hello, excess of anything is harmful. Natural hormonal products don't have any side effects. Homeopathic medicines are also good.
