Some of the remedies in your protocol(s) are found at SourceHomeopathy.com (password: remedy2). If they do not have a remedy (or potency) that you need, please email Ryan at email@example.com to ask him if he can order them for you. However, if may be faster to order what they do not have from another pharmacy (usually Helios has anything SourceHomeopathy.com does not). Click here for ordering instructions for these and other homeopathic pharmacies.
The protocol in your email is intended to be used only for 2 weeks, I will make adjustments to the protocol at our 2-week follow-up (included in your initial consultation fee).
Here is an explanation about dry, drop and sip dosing: For dry dosing, this means a pellet (or a few pellets if they are on the small side) under the tongue, left to dissolve. For drop dosing this means that you put a couple of pellets in one tablespoon of water and take a few drops from that all at one time (you can set aside the remainder of the tablespoon to be used for future doses, but dump after one week). Sip dosing means putting a couple of pellets into a couple ounces of water and slowly sipping the whole thing over about 2 minutes time. Sip dosing from a diluted cup means that you place a couple of pellets into 8 oz of water, allow to dissolve, then dump the cup down the drain and refill the cup. You do this the number of times that is specified in your protocol (so if you are supposed to take a sip from the 2nd diluted cup you will dump and refill twice, then take a sip). Diluted-cup dosing is confusing for some to understand (ie, “how does it work if we are dumping it down the drain?”). This type of dosing is usually used as an “aggravation zapper” to calm down remedy reactions/aggravations, however is sometimes used as an actual dosing method. See this link for a better understanding of how this works. https://hpathy.com/homeopathy-papers/the-aggravation-zapper/.

I would like to have a complimentary mini skype/phone consultation with you every two weeks so that I can find out how you are both doing and make any necessary changes to the protocol. Once you receive the remedies, please start taking them and make an appt for 2 weeks later at this link: https://calendly.com/stephanienewton-homeopathy/freeminifollowup
6-8 weeks after starting the remedies we should plan to have a full follow-up appt, at which time I will probably change the constitutional remedies. Full follow-up fee for child is $125; full follow-up fee for caregiver is $80. Here is the link to schedule: https://calendly.com/stephanienewton-homeopathy/followupvideo
Please print and use this “Remedy Reaction Tracking Sheet“ to help facilitate our communication. I also recommend reading this blog post and/or watching this Youtube video for helpful “what to expect” information:
In addition, it may be helpful to take a look at this “Emotional Scale” to get an idea of the direction in which emotions should be moving during healing. But in general, there should be movement of symptoms from mental to emotional to physical symptoms. So it would not be uncommon to notice more clarity or engagement (mental improvement), but more crying or anger temporarily (emotional symptom). OR less crying/anger (emotional improvement), but more frequent urination or hives on the skin (physical symptom). Being patient and letting this shift of symptoms play out is the best, but if things get too intense, try the aggravation zapper (see link in previous paragraph).
Getting Prepared for Shift of Symptoms
As stated above, it is not uncommon for some people to experience more acute illnesses (colds, flus, minor skin symptoms) as/after their mental and emotional symptoms resolve. This is a sign of a healthy and normally functioning immune system. This “shift” can occur right away or can begin a month or more into a homeopathy protocol. For optimal outcome, it may be helpful to order a homeopathy book and kit for acute illness situations during homeopathic treatment (this does not include any potential detox reaction from the remedies I have recommended, for that please contact me so I can advise). Please see this list for acute books and kits I recommend taking a look at.
Other Healing Modalities
In addition to homeopathy, there are many other things that can be done to alleviate the situation and calm down the emotional environment in the home. Please take a look at the attached PDF I created, entitled: 6 Keys to Happy and Healthy Families.
Best Wishes and Happy Healing 🙂
