Everyone can treat simple common acute conditions by self-prescribing homeopathic medicines. These can be single homeopathic medicines - with the aid of a homeopathic handbook - or, which is often much easier, with ‘combination medicines’ or ‘complex medicines’. The latter contain several different homeopathic medicines that are most commonly prescribed for specific diseases. These combination medicines are popular because they are so easy to prescribe.
The treatment of chronic illness as well as more serious acute illness, however, requires the assistance of an experienced doctor with specific training in homeopathy.
