Healthy eating, as well as good sleeping habits and regular exercise, all help give the body the best possible chance to heal itself. Homeopathic remedies are thought to work more efficiently if the body is not overtaxed by too many toxins, A homeopath may recommend that before taking a homeopathic remedy, the body should he generally detoxified to boost the metabolism and optimize the absorption of the remedy.
To help detoxify the body, do not smoke or drink alcohol and reduce your intake of caffeine. Carefully scrutinize the contents of packaged foods for hidden sugar, salt, and additives, which should he avoided. Some homeopaths may also recommend a reduction in meat consumption.

Complaints that are aggravated by particular foods may benefit from the alkaline or liver diets. It is unlikely that these diets will lead to problems, providing you eat a variety of foods. If you are suffering from a severe illness or are taking allopathic medicine, however, consult a doctor before starting either diet.
The alkaline and liver diets should be followed for one month. If there is an improvement in your health, gradually introduce the foods you have avoided eating, twice a week. Take note of the effects. If symptoms reappear, try the diet for another month and then reintroduce specific foods to your diet gradually. If you still experience problems, see a homeopath or a nutritionist.


alkaline diet
This diet is recommended for acidic conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatism, and cystitis.
Acids, which come naturally from the intestines, are usually neutralized and eliminated through the liver, lungs, and kidneys. Illnesses can occur if the body produces too much acid or if the metabolic processes fail to detoxify it. The acid/alkaline balance of the body should be about 20 percent acid and 80 percent alkaline. When this is unbalanced, the metabolism becomes swamped with acid and unable to cope. When too much acid is present, small particles of it accumulate in the tissues, resulting in pain and inflammation. Individuals appear to differ as to how efficiently their detoxifying mechanisms work and how easily they can become overloaded.
The foods allowed in the alkaline diet can reduce the general levels of acidity in the body. Junk food and foods containing white flour, for example, white bread, should be avoided on a long-term basis.
