Homeopathy is a system of medicine where in like-cures-likeand has been in practice around the world for almost two centuries. For a variety of reasons, homeopathy is considered controversial, however, my personal experiences with homeopathy have been really positive. My only personal complaint about homeopathic remedies is that they are in lactose tablets – which means dairy and non-vegan.
But now, Ollois, a French company, is now making dairy-free homeopathic remedies in sugar pellets instead of lactose pellets. (These are tiny, by the way, it’s not like eating a piece of candy – so you don’t have to be concerned about too much sugar.)
Ollois currently makes 45 vegan-friendly, dairy-free remedies for digestive upset, pain, skin troubles, stress, sleep disorders, ear/nose/throat, women’s issues and cold/flu maladies. You can log on and use Ollois’ chart to determine which remedy might be best for you. However, that said, we have had best success using homeopathy under the supervision of a trained homeopathic practicioner. In the Baltimore area, I trust Dr. Emily Telfair – she has taken great care of me over the years and is very sensitive to vegans. So if you want to work with Ollois rememdies, try to find a great practioner like her that will be aware of specific vegan needs.
We found Ollois homeopathic remedies at the Natural Products Expo East. We haven’t needed to try any yet – thankfully – but when we get to try them, we will post an update. It’s very exciting though, to find vegan homeopathy!! Thanks Ollois!!!
