Prescribing Considerations

Homeopathic remedies are prescribed based on homeopathic principles and after a detailed case taking. The prescription recommendations below are provided only as a guide. It is always recommended to consult with a naturopathic doctor or homeopathic practitioner prior to taking any homeopathic remedies, especially if your health is compromised or if your symptoms due to resolve in a timely fashion. The general recommendations for Glonoine include:[4]

  • For palliative (non-homeopathic) purposes, in angina pectoris, asthma, heart failure etc., physiological doses - i.e., 1-100 drops - must be given. Here it is a great emergency remedy. The conditions calling for it are small, wiry pulse, pallor, arterial spasm, anemia of the brain, collapse, feeble heart, syncope, dicrotic pulse, vertigo, - the opposite of those indicating a homeopathic dosage. Often thus used to lower the arterial tension in chronic interstitial nephritis.
