Silica has traditionally been used for the relief of symptoms associated with frequent and recurrent illnesses that occur because of a weakened immune system. These include frequent colds, flu and chronic ear infections (especially those with a thick, yellow discharge or fluid in the middle ear. It may also be helpful for earache, skin conditions such as boils, ingrown hairs and abscesses, wounds that suppurate and are slow to heal and it may also be helpful for the ill effects of vaccination. It may help accelerate the expulsion of foreign bodies, such as splinters and bits of embedded glass. For this reason, care should be taken if the individual has artificial implants.

How does Homeopathy work?
Homeopathy is based on ‘like cures like’. The remedy contains very diluted quantities of plant, animal or mineral substances that are refined and transformed into remedies with remarkable restorative properties. The remedy contains the “energy” of the substance and this stimulates the body’s own natural healing forces to alleviate the symptoms and bring about a return to health.
Homeopathic principles should be applied when using this remedy. Always read the product label. If symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner or vet promptly.
