I have permission (from the author of the original post) to cross post this to this bulletin Board and I would be especially be grateful for replies to be forward on to the original questioner.

Please back up any statements you make with appropriate references. :D


My "desperate to keep her kids cold free" sister in law very excitedly
showed me her newest purchase. A "homeopathic??" loly pop called Kids
Cough.. She is so thrilled because instead of having to describe all
the intricate details of the cold, the cough, the color of the mucous
etc.... she can just give my little nephew this lolly, which has PUls,
Dros, Spongia, Kali Carb, PHos, IPecac and Belladona all rolled in one!
I am only a student here, but this doesn't seem right to me. HOwever,
I would like some facts to back my feeling that this isn't homeopathy.
ANy help would be appreciated.

Simone, You have returned to this board after travelling long distance. I welcome you at this board. ;)

This cross posting rules has created so much problem for few members which had the habit of cross posting again and again from this forum to that forum and from that forum to this one. :D

I do not take part in other forums or mailing lists so I have no problem with cross posting. ;)

What is cross posting rule. I am not aware of this new rule. I am observing for few weeks that each member when post on this forum he or she always mentioned that she has the permission of sending this post. I have no idea about cross posting rules.

Please clarify what is cross posting and where jon has posted the info about this new rule. Is it applicable at HHBB if yes then where this info is written. :confused:

Few questions has been aroused in my mind about cross postings.

Please clarify "what is cross posting" and where the info about this new cross posting rule is available at HHBB.

If a person says "I have permission to cross post this to this bulletin Board" Whether she has intimated the permission email / letter to moderator first before sending this cross post?

If a member says "I have the permission from its real author to send cross post his/her info at other forum then how can it be verified" For example if I say here, Simone does not has the permission for sending this cross post then how can it be verified? :confused:

It is not an April Fool's Joke. These kind of combinations are common OTC preparations which can be bought in Australia.

Even my own mother turned up with a jet lag combination (for a long haul flight) given to her on "advice" from her GP.

It is a shame that no-one has bothered to answer the query seriously, as it comes from a student who would like valid arguments to present to her sister-in-law.

I would say to Ilana before you try to convince your sister-in-law of anything, you could acquaint yourself with aphorism 165.
There is just no point in prescribing homoeopathic medicines based on non-characteristic common symptoms, like nausea, lassitude, headache, cough, congestion. There is no guarantee that you will increase your odds by combining additonal remedies in a complex. Homoeopathy works by symptom similarity based on a small number of characteristic individualizing symptoms in the case.
Some people hold the view that if, by luck, the right remedy is amongst all the others that some good will come out of it. There is an inherent danger in this type of thinking. Should the case become complicated with sequalae you are really going to need to access all the information from known remedy relationships to bring the case back on track. Combinations like these make this more difficult to achieve and since we are in the business of attempting to cure quickly, safely and gently then where is the integrity?
Why does she desperately want to keep her children cold-free anyway? This doesn't make any sense. A healthy immune response is a godsend, it is not wise to suppress all natural immune function, this only leads to possible deeper pathology later on.

These types of acute conditions are self-limiting anyway. I think that's how the companies who sell these type of OTC products get away with their false advertising.

The reality is that the successful use of OTC combos has convinced a lot of people to see a real homeopath when they develop something more serious.
