Top 100 Homeopathic Remedies

I have gotten several questions on my recommendation to purchase a kit of the top 100 remedies.

At a time where you may be more aware of the importance in being self-sufficient, I can think of no other single factor than stocking some homeopathic remedies and properly applying homeopathic principles in their use.

Accordingly, I think it is important to have a good variety of homeopathic remedies that can be readily available for most acute (short lived) ailments. Any homeopathic remedy if stored and used properly will last many years. Here is a list of “Do’s and Don’ts” to properly accomplish this…

-Do store the remedies in a dark, cool spot away from other chemicals and cleaners. Homeopathic remedies can be tainted by sunlight, extreme temperatures and extreme odors.

-Don’t use more than one or two pillets from the remedy bottles. I realize that some remedies recommend five pillets be taken under the tongue (sublingual)… this is just plain wrong. It does empty your remedy stash quickly and that is great for the manufacturer (not great for you and not necessary).

-Don’t mix different remedies. This is a controversial subject but can be easily verified by studying the original texts of homeopathy. Remedies are frequently mixed in current homeopathic practice and this is completely against how homeopathy works and should be applied. There are several reasons that this should never be done; the least of which is the possibility of conflicting remedies.

-Do mix remedies in water when possible. Hahnemann almost exclusively prescribed the remedies in a water-based solution over the last years of his life. He also recommended this approach. There are other ways to administer remedies, but that discussion is too lengthy to approach at this time.

-Don’t just pick a remedy from reading a list of commonly applied remedies for that illness. This is allopathic prescribing. Read the next point…

-Do repertorize the symptoms of the ill person to find the appropriate remedy. Just trying remedies one after another is the allopathic way to prescribe remedies. Homeopathy has taken great pains to provide the resources in picking the appropriate remedy for ANY illness. When the proper remedy is found, it will work wonders on the illness. Some basic information on how remedies are chosen (repertorized) is available in previous postings.

My reason for presenting this information at this time is that Washington Homeopathic Products is having a sale on their Top 100 Remedies (here) until the end of the month. I am in no way affiliated with this organization except as a satisfied client from past purchases. Their products are top-notch and except for the occasional “mixture” of remedies, are as close to Hahnemann’s techniques as is commonly found in this country (USA). Their Top 100 remedies are in 30C potency which is fine for most acute ailments and is a good jumping off point for learning acute homeopathy. The kit includes most of the common influenza remedies found (here), but not all of them. You can always supplement these 100 remedies by purchasing others remedies one by one (about $5 per bottle).

A typical bottle of a remedy will have about 80 pillets. Mixing one pillet in a water based solution will handle several occurrences of an illness if done properly. That same bottle of pillets will last many years and would cost about 6 cents per illness.

That is it for now. As some of you are aware, I have recently started an acute homeopathy course and it is taking more of my attention than I previously thought it would. I will be posting a bit less for the next week or two until I catch up. Thanks for all the support and questions!


  1. could you do a post about what vitamins are necessary to take every day? Or maybe if you have already, point me in the direction?? There are so many different vitamins to take and I'm really curious which ones are important and which ones aren't.

  2. Ashley,

    Vitamin supplements came far behind most of the founders of homeopathy. So there is no standard recommendation from that end. Hahnemann and Boenninghausen recommended eating well balanced meals with aversion to alcohol and coffee. With the mix-matched standards in vitamin production it is very hard to even know what you are getting. I feel that they are not needed when you have dealt with underlying chronic miasms specific to an illness, but if you are feeling them necessary simply take a good quality multivitamin and call it a day. Also, look carefully at your eating habits and always try to cover the nutrition needed with whole foods and you will cover more than vitamins can.

    Thanks for the question!

  3. Excellent information for people. I noted that you had commented on my homeschooling blog. I also have a blog regarding natural mothering where I may just link to you since it deals with homeopathic things too. :-) I use to have a natural health blog. Still do..just haven't written on it for 3 years LOL

  4. Your article is informative. Thanks...

  5. Thank you for sharing such valuable information. You've made some very good points here. Blessings and healing light to you.

  6. I've suffered from lymphedema and lymphangitis for several years. Doctors told me there's no cure for the symptoms and I could only depend on PDS or pharmaceutical antibiotics. Since I've suffered from lymphangitis biweekly, I decided not to take those pharmaceutical remedies and started to study about homeopathic remedies. I live in Korea and there's no professional homeopaths I could find here so I had no choice but to read related books and google for the right cure.
    I bought 100 kit and tried to take aconite, belladonna, bryonia and other remedies which are known to be helpful for lymphangitis. Reading your article, however, I've been deadly misled in using them. I took over 3 pellets at a time and many times I mix those when I didn't feel my symptom get reduced. It's been a year or so that I used homeopathic remedies that way. What I'd like to ask is... Will it be ok if I start all over again and follow your instructions mentioned here? I will take only one or two pellets at a time and I will be patient and use only one sort of remedy at a time.

  7. Hi there! I could have sworn I've been to this blog before but after checking through some of the post I realized it's nеw to me.
    Anywaуs, I'm definitely happy I found it and I'll be bοoκ-mаrκing
    аnd cheсking back often!
