Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Homeopathic remedies are made by Homeopathic Pharmacies in accordance with the processes described in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States, the official manufacturing manual recognized by the FDA. The substances may be made from plants such as onion or oregano; from minerals such as gold, carbon, or sodium chloride; from animals such as cod liver oil, honey bee, or the ink of the cuttlefish. These substances are diluted carefully until little of the original substance remains but its healing properties are retained.
The substance is soaked in a solution of alcohol to obtain a tincture. One drop of the tincture is mixed with 99 drops of alcohol and the mixture is strongly shaken. This shaking process is known as succussion. The final bottle is labeled as “1C”. One drop of this 1C is then mixed with 100 drops of alcohol and the process is repeated to make a 2C. By the time the 3C is reached, the dilution is 1 part in 1 million. Small granules made from sugar are then saturated with the liquid dilution. These granules constitute the Homeopathic Remedy.
