Hyland's Allium Cepa 6X is a homeopathic medicine used for temporary relief of runny nose, cold, or hay fever. Allium Cepa helps to treat the beginning stages of colds with sneezing and streaming eyes. In these cases, watery discharge irritates the nose, often accompanied by laryngitis with raw sensation down into the chest. Allium cepa is often indicated when a person has watery eyes that sting, a teasing cough, much sneezing, and a runny nose with clear discharge that irritates the nostrils and upper lip. The nose usually runs when the person is indoors and stops in open air.
This bottle of Allium Cepa 6X comes with 250 tablets.
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a gentler, safer approach to health. With no known side effect, homeopathy provides an option you can feel good about.
Homeopathic medicine or homeopathy uses is an entire medical system that originated in Europe and became popular in the United States in the 19th century. It is based on the concept that like cures like. This means that if a substance produces a certain effect in a person who is well, it will help a sick person with symptoms similar to that effect. For example, when you cut an onion, it can cause your eyes to water and burn. Symptoms similar to that might occur when you have a cold or allergies, which makes Allium Cepa the homeopathic you might choose when you have a runny nose and watery eyes.
Homeopathic medicine is believed to be more effective when its active ingredient is diluted and succussed (shaken vigorously). It has been shown that homeopathic medicine gains increased effectiveness with each additional dilution-succussion step. Furthermore, the safety profile of the medicine increases with increased dilution.

Hyland's Frequently Asked Questions
Is Homeopathy Regulated?
Yes! Homeopathic Medicines are regulated as drugs by the FDA and their manufacturing facilities are inspected by the FDA. The claims for their products are based on traditional homeopathic practice; they are not reviewed by the FDA. All homeopathic medicines also follow the manufacturing and quality practices outlined in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States.
Are these herbal products?
No, these are no herbs, which use a larger quantity of plant material per dose. Homeopathic medicines use a minute dose of plant or mineral substances to address symptoms. Unlike herbal supplements which are regulated as foods, the FDA accepts homeopathic products as drugs. As drugs, homeopathic products must be manufactured in compliance with the FDA finished pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) regulations for cleanliness, quality and testing. All Hyland's manufacturing facilities are inspected by the FDA.
Will homeopathic medicines interact with other medications I'm taking?
In general, because the ingredients in homeopathic remedies are in small amounts they do not have any drug interactions. However, if you are concerned using a homeopathic remedy with other prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) drugs that you are taking, they recommend that you speak with your doctor or pharmacist.
I am lactose intolerant. Can I take these products?
People who are lactose intolerant do not have enough of the enzymes in their digestive tract to digest lactose. Their products contain about 64 mg. of lactose (the sugar from cow's milk - no protein is used) per tablet. While everyone is different, most lactose-intolerant individuals would need to ingest 5000 mg. of lactose before they experience symptoms of intolerance from the lack of enzymes. With this large margin of safety, there is rarely a problem with their products when being used as directed on the label. If your physician has determined that you are specifically "Allergic to Lactose", you should avoid their tablets. If you are very concerned, seek the advice of a licensed health care professional before using this product.
Do their products carry an expiration date?
Homeopathic medicines are good indefinitely as they are very stable when stored under normal conditions (away from moisture and excessive heat or cold). For this reason, in the US the FDA has exempted homeopathic manufacturers from putting expiration dates on the label.
Can pregnant and/or breastfeeding women use your products?
No formal studies have been conducted to test the safety of homeopathic remedies in pregnant and/or breastfeeding women. The FDA requires all OTC medicines to tell consumers to check with their physician before using any OTC drug if they are pregnant or nursing.
My child just ate an entire bottle of tablets, what do I do?
Do not panic. Homeopathic medicines are very safe, non-toxic, and have a very wide margin of safety. It is unlikely that your child could become seriously ill just from taking a large number of tablets at one time. You can call their 24 hours emergency information number at 1-800-624-9659 and a pharmacist or healthcare professional will return your call. Their products are also listed with Regional Poison Control Centers. Most are informed of the wide margin of safety of homeopathic medicines. However, if your child does develop symptoms that concern you, please consult your own physician or health care provider right away.

Melanie’s Health & Nutrition really began with Auminay Naturals which was formerly SkinTastic Creations. This product line took root over twenty years ago as Melanie faced cancer. After becoming aware of alternative therapies she worked to change to a healthier lifestyle and learn about herbs. She developed what is now the Auminay Naturals product line by eventually learning to infuse these herbs into products that used natural ingredients to provide skin care products for a healthier lifestyle. In 2017, as a newly certified Master Herbalist, Melanie opened Melanie’s Health & Nutrition to provide a resource for the Tooele community. The Auminay products are now made in the back section of the store. Melanie and her staff love to serve the community and provide opportunities for learning, as well as products that empower people to be healthier.
