Additionally, if you are interested in, or currently practice homeopathy and alternative medicine, it is important to start a collection of remedies (if you haven’t already) in your home so that you have them during the first onset of symptoms. Homeopathy is very safe and effective, and especially effective during this time. To help you with your collection, I normally list any homeopathic remedies I have referenced in my topics at the bottom of my articles, so that you can easily and cost-effectively add them to your collection. Any remedy that I recommend you purchase, I myself own, and personally use for the specific symptom(s) it is intended for.
Thanks again, and I hope you will love the new Stomach Issues Site!
