Homeopathic medicines are safe for people of all ages, including babies, the elderly, and during pregnancy. Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body's own healing process, and so they do not have any side-effects.
During homeopathic treatment, a slight aggravation of symptoms may occur. This is not a side effect of the drug, but rather a process in which the patient's innate defence mechanism is attempting to push off the inner disorder. In acutes this will pass off very soon, while in chronic complaints it may range from only a few minutes to a couple of weeks.
