Zicam is considered a homeopathic product because it contains zincum gluconicum. Zicam is not a homeopathic remedy.
is put directly into the nose. The administration of homeopathic
remedies in Classical Homeopathy are not given through the nose, they
are taken orally.
Homeopathic remedies are sometimes
administered by olfaction. Olfaction method of taking homeopathic
remedies is breathing in the "scent" of a particular remedy that has
been prepared in a specific way for the purpose of olfaction. Olfaction
is not spraying up the nose a high dilution of gross substance in
combination with other ingredients. I emphasize around the word scent
because there will be no obvious scent to a homeopathic remedy.
is often used repeatedly in high doses. Homeopathic remedies from a
professional Homeopath will be administered in the smallest dose to
elicit the maximum healing response with minimal/or no aggravation.
Homeopathic remedies are not to be administered routinely over along
period of time. Sometimes a Homeopathic remedy may be repeated
routinely over a short period of time, when it is indicated. However,
this should be done only under the guidance of a professional Homeopath.
homeopathic remedies are powerful substances and less is best. In
general one can safely take a homeopathic remedy on their own if the
potency is low (no higher than 12C), taken infrequently, and only when
indicated. Discontinue a homeopathic remedy if there is no relief of
symptoms after one or two doses or if the symptoms are chronic and
recurring. If a homeopathic remedy does not act, discontinue its use.
Taking more remedy will not make an improvement. If you DO
receive a positive response to a remedy, discontinue its use. The
remedy has done it's job by stimulating the body's capacity to heal
itself. The body has taken over. The remedy is no longer needed.
Homeopathic remedies are best taken under the advisement of a
professional Homeopath. See, "Zicam: There is no such thing as a Homeopathic Product" HERE
