things that could possibly affect homeopathic treatment negatively, including traveling by
air and using mint.
I ask my patients to be aware of following
factors that are known to negatively affect homeopathic treatment:

homeopathic treatment, please inform your homeopath. Your well being is the most
important issue, and, without any doubt all the necessary dental, surgical and diagnostic
procedures should be performed in the timely fashion to insure your safety and well-being.
- Excessive, and in some cases even moderate
consumption of coffee and stimulants

we recommend taking the remedy at least 30 minutes before or 1 hour after eating, drinking
(water is allowed), chewing gum, brushing your teeth, and smoking.
