How To Store Homoeopathic Remedies
Homoeopathic remedies are light sensitive. Hence they are always supplied in amber, light resistant containers. The Naturo Pharm range of homoeopathic remedies is also supplied boxed which provides additional light protection to the remedy as well as enabling extra consumer information to be provided. For maximum protection, homoeopathic remedies should always be left in their original containers and packaging.
Additional precautions should be taken to avoid exposure to excessive heat. Remedies should not therefore be stored in the glove box of a motor vehicle or in direct sunlight.
Experience has shown that exposure to high magnetic fields may interfere with a remedy's therapeutic effect. Do not place homoeopathic remedies on or near a television or microwave.
Perhaps the most important warning however is the need to avoid exposing homoeopathic remedies to strong smelling substances such as perfume, nail polish, liniments and many chemicals. Homoeopathic remedies may be inactivated if contaminated in this way. As bathroom cupboards are commonly used to store a variety of household medicines as well as strong smelling cosmetics, homoeopathic remedies should be stored in a cool place away from other preparations.
While homoeopathic remedies have an excellent safety record, it should be remembered that standard medical advice dictates that all medicines, whether allopathic or complementary, should be kept under lock and key, well out of the reach of children.
