How are homeopathic remedies made?

Each new homeopathic medicine undergoes a particular process called a proving. Volunteers take the new substance until they experience symptoms. These symptoms are then recorded in detail. This is the method by which new remedies are added to the homeopathic pharmacy. Unlike conventional medicines, homeopathic medicines are not tested on animals. Remedies are mainly produced from plant and mineral substances. They are prescribed as pills, tablets or drops.

To maximise the healing potential of the medicines, Samuel (founder of Homeopathy), prepared them in a very specific manner. This involved diluting the chosen substance, and then shaking it vigorously with impact. This process is known as potentisation. A substance can be potentised many times. The normal potencies that remedies are available in is 6c, 12c, 30c, 200c, 1M and 10M. Hahnemann observed that potentisation made the medicines more effective and reduced the likelihood of unwanted adverse effects.
