Learn the most valuable homeopathic remedies to add to your home kit, including Banerji Protocols! Of course, these are not the only ones, but these are good remedies to have in hand for acute conditions and to add to your kit.
Many people ask about homeopathic kits and nowadays, my advice is to build your own! You can make your homeopathic kit by adding the remedies to a homeopathic pouch for storing remedies or any homeopathic storage box you can find online.
You can build your kit at home with the remedies below as you need them, and I advise purchasing each remedy individually rather than in a combination, even if you are looking at Banerji Protocols combinations. If you buy each remedy separately, you can always make the combination at home-check here how to do it– and also you have the chance to use each remedy individually for other health issues. If you buy the combination already made, it is more convenient in the moment, but you will not be able to maximise its use!
For instance, in the combination Aconite200+Bryonia 30, buying it together would be only suitable for coughs, colds and chest complaints. But if you buy both remedies separately, you could use Aconite 200 also for anxiety, colds, fevers, panic attacks, palpitations, fear, etc
Remember that the size of the pellets is not important so the smaller the size, the more they can fit in the tube. In my practice one dose is one single pellet regardless of the size.
Many years ago, when I started using homeopathy, I wanted to have a set of remedies that I could rely on when my family was ill. I started building my own homeopathic first aid kit around my family’s remedies for acute problems. I bought a homeopathy kit with a few remedies in 30c potency.
The problem with this type of kit is that I found them very limiting.
By experience, I have been in situations when you are running into a difficult acute, and to make matters worse, it is nighttime! You only have a few remedies until the morning, and the remedy you are thinking of is not in the kit! Everyone panics…
Things started to change when I started to work with the Banerji Protocols and build my own strategies. Suddenly, I realised that understanding this methodology helped me to cover many more acute issues with a smaller range of remedies, but I needed different potencies and combinations to make this work.
If you look through my blogs, you will see that certain remedies pop over and over. I also use fixed potencies and combinations as I work with the Banerji Protocols.
These remedies serve many uses because they cover the symptoms of the most common health problems. They are what you would call broad-spectrum remedies, and these remedies are the ones to have! They are scattered around my blogs, and you will see them repeatedly.
Different potencies work better for certain health issues; your kit should include different potencies.
Here, there are some remedies that I would not want to be without.
These are remedies and combinations for everyday use. Buy them as you need them and in this way, your homeopathic kit will be individualised to your own family needs.
I am sure it will be very helpful in your household!

Belladonna is the best first option, whether there is inflammation from infection, wound or a medical procedure. Pain, redness, heat and swelling are the first symptoms of an inflammatory process, which is your body’s protective response to a pathogen or cell injury to initiate tissue repair.

When inflammation happens, the cells release substances that dilate the blood vessels, allowing more blood to reach the damaged tissue. This is why the area becomes red and hot, and did you know that the main keynote of Belladonna is heat, redness, burning and throbbing?
