I Sniff At Homeopathy

Sugar pills? Drops that taste just like water? That’s what comes to mind for most when they think of homeopathic remedies. The fact that homeopathy does so much with so little has always been it’s claim to fame.

But did you know that remedies don’t have to be taken by mouth – they can also be taken through the nose by a quick sniff? It’s true, and it’s called olfaction dosing.

Olfaction dosing in which the energy of remedy is taken as an inward breath has been used since the early days of homeopathy. It’s a simple way to give a remedy when, for whatever reason, it can’t be taken by mouth.

The gentleness of olfaction dosing is ideally suited to those who overreact to oral doses because of heightened sensitivity and it’s a terrific way to give a remedy to a sick but sleeping child or to someone who is unconscious.

How to Give an Olfaction Dose

Olfaction doses can be given by placing one or two pills of the remedy in a container such as a vial or small bottle. Hold this container close to the person’s nose as they take an inward breath. The same approach can be used for any remedy that is prepared as a liquid – just hold the open bottle under the person’s nose for one inward breath.

For those who are highly sensitive, the dose can be reduced to a weak sniff through just one nostril (use your finger to block the other nostril off). If sensitivity is not a problem, then a good breath inwards through both nostrils gives a stronger dose. Should the person’s nose be fully blocked through injury or a head cold, inhalation by mouth works just as well.

The interesting thing about olfaction dosing is that while it is a gentle way of getting the remedy for those who are sensitive, a single sniff works just as deeply and just as long as oral drop doses or pills do.

How does the olfaction method work?

Pills and liquids given by mouth work not by chemical effects but through the transfer of energetic information into the body. While pills and liquids are generally used as carriers for this information, the inhalation of their vapours produces equally good effects.

How this information is encoded into the pill, liquid, or vapour is not yet fully understood but researchers such as Nobel prize winner, Montagnier, are now exploring this area in earnest.  For those who use homeopathy, how it works is of secondary importance to the fact that it does work, with millions worldwide now turning to its remedies for their safe and gentle healing abilities.

What we do know from recent research is that the human nose identifies odours as vibrational patterns and not by odour molecules binding to receptors as was the previously thought. Knowing this, it is much easier to understand how olfaction doses of homeopathy work – its all about exposing the body to the vibrational pattern encoded within the remedy and this can be done just by olfaction doses just as easily as with oral doses.

So next time you need a remedy, why not try a dose by olfaction… you too can then say, “I sniff at homeopathy.”
