The medicines used in homeopathy include biochemical preparations--that is, minerals--which are generally beneficial, and, as with all homeopathic medicines, need a longer time to work their effects. Among them, there is kali mur, which is useful for colds in the nose, the throat, and the ears. There is natrum mur, which is useful against hives. Such medicines should be mixed with water and swallowed a few times during the day if they are in powder form. If, however, they are in tablet form, they should be dissolved very, very slowly in the mouth.
