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 Tox.
When taking Rhus Tox, 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. When taking Rhus Tox, it is recommended to take it in between meals. Many supplements and vitamins encourage taking them with food, but Rhus Tox is different because it is not a pill. It is an oral solution held underneath the tongue for 30 seconds and then swallowed. The liquid form makes it easy to take without food or drink. In fact, taking it with food and drink may make the solution diluted and less powerful. Another reason many medications are suggested to be taken with food is because they may cause upset stomach. Rhus Tox has limited side effects and is unlikely to cause upset stomach when administered correctly. As with any homeopathic solution, you should follow all suggested dosage and administering guidelines to be on the safe side and to ensure proper results.
While there are few foods to avoid while taking Rhus Tox, there is still one thing to keep away from. It is recommended to stay away from poison ivy plants until you have administered at least the first three doses of Rhus tox to ensure immunity to the poison. Results vary by person based on genetic factors and the severity of the poison ivy allergy, but three doses is the general guideline. Some have reported poison ivy immunity after one dose. It is important to note that those cases are the exception and not the rule. After the first three doses, nearly all individuals report an immunity to poison ivy plants.
