How safe are the homeopathic remedies?
Since the remedies are so highly diluted, they do not contain significant amounts of the original substance from which they are made. Therefore, they do not have the toxic effects associated with many conventional medications or other substances. They are, however, powerful energetic stimuli and must be used with discretion.
Sometimes, as part of the curative process, a person may experience a temporary intensification of symptoms. Homeopathic remedies are safe enough in pregnancy, to the newborn as well as the elderly.
