How Homeopathic Remedies are Made

by Joe Lillard (Proprietor of Washington Homeopathic Products)

Homeopathic medicines are made in accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS). Its a four volume book written by homeopaths in the U.S. (with input from homeopaths in other countries), and recognized by the FDA as the way things are to be done. If remedies are made in any other way, they are considered "unofficial" and the method used must be proven by the user to be safe, effective, etc.

The HPUS identifies what a medicine is to be made from and how to make it. Whatever it is made from must be just that and nothing else - no additives, or contaminants of any kind. For instance, if a remedy is made from a plant, no inorganic fertilizers, bug or weed killers could have been used. If something is made from a chemical or mineral, we obtain them from an appropriate supplier who is responsible for providing us with a Certificate of Analysis.

An example - Cuprum is made from copper, but we don't get a penny from the mint & drop it in the mortar & grind away. What we use is pure copper ground as fine as talcum. We then grind (triturate) one part of that in 9 parts lactose for 4 hours to make the 1x (the 1c is made using 99 parts lactose). One part of the 1x is then ground for four hours with 9 parts lactose - the result is 2x. In order to convert (Cuprum) to dilution we must triturate (grind) it through the same serial method until we reach 8x. One part of the 8x is dissolved in 4.5 parts water - once dissolved 4.5 parts ethyl alcohol is added and succussed. The result is a 9x. To go to a 10x, the 9x is succussed in a 1:9 (10x to alcohol). Succussion is done in a corked vial which is struck 25 times hard against the palm.

Aside - In England 10 succussions is mimimum while in Cuba 100 succussions are used.
