Frequently asked questions about homeopathic detoxing


Where can I order detox remedies?

For USA/Canada: remedies can be ordered from Source Homeopathy. If you want to order here and have purchased a protocol already, please request access to the dispensary via the contact form.

The packets with Source are relatively small, so you may want to use  Helios Pharmacy in London, UK, instead.

Australia/New Zealand based: We are waiting to hear back from Similimum in Oakland if they still carry these remedies. If you get in touch with them before we hear back from them and it turns out that they don’t, then we recommend Helios Pharmacy in London, UK, instead.

In all other cases: We recommend using Helios Pharmacy in London, UK. They ship worldwide. 

I would like to order with Source Homeopathy

If you want to order here and have purchased a protocol already, please request access to the dispensary via the contact form.

I cannot see the mentioned remedies on the website of the pharmacy

For regulation reasons, sometimes poly combinations are indeed not on the websites.
However, you can email or call the pharmacy to order the exact list as mentioned in the protocol document and they will be able to help you.

How much/which size bottle should I order of each remedy?

With Helios the size per bottle can be either 4gp (about 100 sugar pills) or 4g (about 80 lactose tablets). With Source homeopathy, size “packet” will suffice initially for most people. Should you need more when doing the individualized dosing method, you can always order extra. When contacting other pharmacies, please ask for their advise in ordering sizes.

How much do homeopathic remedies cost?

Relatively little compared to drugs or supplements. Costs per bottle range from $4.50-7.00 / EUR 5.50-8.00.

Can I do detoxes at the same time?

No, you need to do the protocols one by one.

However, all fertility drugs can be detoxed at the same time, so can lots of different metals or different contraceptives at the same time, as for each of these groups remedies are available.

This even more important with the individualized dosing method as you need to assess your reactions to know when to pause and (re)start.

Can we continue to try for a baby while detoxing?

Yes you can while detoxing the synthetic hormones (labor drugs, fertility drugs, plastics, contraceptives and steroids).

For detoxing the metals, it is advised to pause trying to conceive. I know this can be a hard pill (haha) to swallow, however, if you suffer from metal toxicity it is well worth the sacrifice of 2-3 cycles and reduce the risk of miscarrying amongst other risks. Pausing is advised no matter if both you and you partner are doing the detox, or just you. You can read more about metal toxicity here.

Can I continue to detox when I think I might be pregnant or have a positive pregnancy test?

If you are detoxing synthetic hormones, I recommend that you just continue detoxing until you have a positive test so that you don’t lose valuable detoxing time in case you aren’t pregnant. Then when you do get that positive, I suggest you stop. Not because it is harmful, just because your body and baby deserve all the resources.

If you are detoxing metals, you shouldn’t even have been trying 😉 I know I know, sometimes the passion gets the better of you. Just stop detoxing the moment you think you may have conceived.

Can I continue detoxing while I have my period?

Yes absolutely!

Which order should I do the detoxes in?

Which order you should detox in, is explained in the protocols. If you would like to have some advice for your specific case please book in an email consultation via the link provided in your protocol purchase confirmation email.

I have some questions about my reactions to the detox

In the protocols there is some information about common reactions. However, we can understand that it can sometimes be confusing what is going on and that some support and insight from Ingefleur can be helpful. For this you can therefore book in an email consultation via the link provided in your protocol purchase confirmation.

Can I continue with my prenatal & other supplements while detoxing?

Most definitely! These will only help in providing you the building blocks to rebalance your hormonal system or to support your organs in removing metals in the case of the heavy metals detox.

Can I continue with my thyroid medication / other medication?

I would definitely recommend to continue and only stop any prescribed medication with your prescribing practitioner.

In the case of thyroid medication, you should look out for hyperthyroid symptoms such as getting agitated, feeling hungry quickly, or sweating & feeling hot. If you get these symptoms, contact your prescribing practitioner as this means your thyroid is picking up the pace again and your medication should likely be lowered.

If you are currently taking steroids, there isn’t much point to detox the steroids at the same time. If you would like advice on how to diminish the side effects with remedies while still using steroids, please book in an email consultation via the link provided in your protocol purchase confirmation.

Can I continue with Maca / Vitex while detoxing?

I don’t recommend for you to do this. The whole idea of the detoxes is that your hormone system recovers balance and this is hard to monitor when you are taking these herbs. Also I do not recommend Maca at all in thyroid conditions and with Vitex I also am hesitant in most cases. I have written a Vitex article series where you can read more about this.

My question isn’t listed

Please keep in mind that the detox protocols are a DIY concept and do not cover my time for advice. So, if you have purchased a protocol and have any questions or need support you can book time in my calendar so I can provide you with email feedback.
