In Homoeopathy we do not have medicines for specific symptoms or organs such as the head, the nose, the ears, etc. We give one single medicine treating the patient as a whole with the goal to remove all his symptoms.

If you find that the effect of tea is similar to coffee then it is wise to take only moderate amounts or stop entirely.
