We might need to investigate many different areas of your lifestyle in order to find the cause of your reaction, still, homeopathy may be able to help your body learn to react in a different way.

After a remedy

The remedy is going to stimulate your body to react in a different way. If you are running through a virus then you will run through to the next symptom quickly.

If your body is coping well and going through the stages of healing you might not need another remedy as your body is already doing everything it needs to do to self heal.
