Simplexes are available as 100 sweet sucrose pills per vial (lactose and gluten free), or liquid remedies – 120 doses per bottle, mild-tasting water/ethanol mix.
Dosage Instructions (suitable for babies to adults)
Take one pill or five drops of the remedy every 15 minutes to 4 hours (15 minutes for intense symptoms, 4 hours for milder ones). Once an improvement is noticed, stop dosing and repeat the remedy only if symptoms return. If there is no improvement at all by three doses, choose a different remedy or seek professional guidance.
What potency do I need?
The following guidelines apply to home-prescribing for simple, self-limiting complaints.
- Low Potencies: 6C and below
- Medium Potencies: 30C and 200C
- High Potencies: M and above
- Lower potencies such as 6C cover a wide range of symptoms, so are ideal if you are not certain that you have chosen the best remedy for your symptoms.
Higher potencies need to match symptoms more precisely if a curative response is to be triggered.
The higher the potency, the longer the effect. A 6C potency may need to be repeated every 1 – 2 hours for a period to improve symptoms while an M potency may only have to be given once.
Medium potencies such as 30C are a good choice for home prescribers who have some familiarity with homeopathy. They may be given every 2 – 4 hours until symptoms are relieved, and then only repeated if symptoms return. Improvement should be noticed by 1 – 3 doses if the correct remedy has been selected.
