Is it true, that I cannot drink coffee and use ordinary toothpaste during homeopathic treatment?
Many homeopaths indeed believe – or have observed – that homeopathic remedies do not work if coffee is drunk, or if patients are exposed to camphor – moth balls – minth, or other etheric oils.
In my experience, this is true in only a handful of cases.
Usually, my patients show now particular sensitivity to coffee (or camphor, minth or other etheric oils).
Being quite the coffee addict myself, I have also not seen that homeopathic remedies do not work in my case – provided, they are well chosen.
