Many New Years' resolutions involve implementing healthier activities to make lifestyle changes. If you plan on hiking this spring and summer, you may already be stocking up on the various supplies you may need. Many remember to bring water, a first aid kit, and bug spray, but often forget about how to really protect themselves from the dangers that poisonous plants can pose. The good news is that Rhus Toxicodendron allows you to start your preparation now! By building your immune system before plants grow, you give your body time to adjust to the initial dose for the best possible chances of success.
It is safe to begin a Rhus Toxicodendron course at any time of year, but the earlier you begin your treatment course, the better.
Follow this process if you’re ready to begin taking Rhus Toxicodendron in winter, preferably February is best.
Note: It’s best to take the medication before bed or between meals. Hold the solution in your mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing. Mint-flavored foods such as mouthwash and mints and eating should be avoided for 30 minutes after taking medication.
Starting Rhus Toxicodendron in the winter is not a requirement. You can begin anytime. When you’re ready to start taking the solution, follow the phased dosing plan outlined above carefully.
Important Note: if you start taking Rhus Toxicodendron during the plant’s active growth phase in late spring and early summer, you must stay away from poisonous plants until you’ve taken at least the first three doses to avoid an allergic reaction. For those with a more severe reaction to poison ivy, it is recommended to continue taking Rhus Toxicodendron throughout the entire year for the best results. Results vary based on individual and proper dosage guidelines.
When it comes to adding any medication or homeopathic solution to your routine, you want to make sure you are informed about food interactions. While homeopathic solutions tend to be free from harmful interactions with food in most cases, there are certain combinations to avoid. There are no known dangerous food combinations when taking Rhus Toxicodendron.
When taking Rhus Toxicodendron, it is recommended to avoid the following:
While these will not have negative consequences, they can lead to an unpleasant taste. You should not eat or drink for roughly 30 minutes after taking this homeopathic solution.
If you decide to start taking the solution after the wintertime, you still need to stay away from all poisonous plants until after you’ve finished taking your three weekly doses. If you are not familiar with the ways you can get poison ivy you may want to review our brief overview of the facts.
