A LITTLE ABOUT
POTENCY - DILUTIONS DYNAMIZATION

Homeopathic dilutions are prepared according to the Hahnemannian method. Each dilution is energetically agitated: this is the "Dynamization process".  

Titurations are generally reserved for insoluble substances. Solid material is added to lactose and grinded in stages. The tablets or powders are placed under the tongue, and allowed to melt slowly before swallowing.

Dilutions: These are the medicines in liquid forms whose excipient is water or alcohol. Dilutions are generally reserved for soluble substances. Few drops of liquid are placed under the tongue, and allowed to move in mouth slowly before swallowing.

Titurations are generally potentized with Alcohol or Water to make liquid dilutions.

Original soluble substance dissolved in liquid is called Mother Tincture (Also called Q Tincture)

X Potencies (also called D Potency)

Dilution in Water/Alcohol or

Tituration with Lactose
Result Overall Dilution
1X 1 Part of material added to 9 Parts 1:10
2X 1 Part of 1X -----  added to 9 Parts 1:100
2X 1 Part of 2X ------ added to 9 Parts 1:1000
---- -------- ------
10X 1 Part of 14X ----- added to 9 Parts 1:10000000000

(ten zeros after one)
Note in these days many stages are illuminated and material is potentized directly in electric blenders etc.


C Potencies (also called CH Potency)

Dilution in Water/Alcohol or

Tituration with Lactose
Result Overall Dilution
1C 1 Part of material added to 99 Parts 100
2C 1 Part of 1C ------ added to 99 Parts 100,00
2C 1 Part of 2C ------ added to 99 Parts 100,00,00
---- -------- ------
30C 1 Part of 29C----- added to 99 Parts 1:100,00,00,00,00 ----------- 00,00-----

(Thiry zeros after one)
Note in these days many stages are illuminated and material is potentized directly in electric blenders etc.


M Potencies

Dilution in Water/Alcohol or

Tituration with Lactose
Result Overall Dilution
1M 1 Part in 1000 Parts 1:1000
2M 1 Part of 1M ------ to 1000 Parts 1:100,000
10M 1 Part of 9M----- added to 99 Parts 1:1000,000,000 ----------- 000-----

(thirty zeros after one)
Note in these days many stages are illuminated and material is potentized directly in electric blenders etc.


LM Potencies

LM and Q are the Roman numerals for the 1 in 50,000 dilution of the first step in the process of making these potencies.

How to Make Your Own Potentized Medicine From a Herb:

1.     Say, if you have Chamomile growing in your backyard, which is a homeopathy remedy.

2.      Following are the steps to make potentize Chamomile medicine.

3.      Wash, clean and liquefy the whole plant in blender, this is Mother Tincture of Chamomile.

4.      Take a clean clear plastic 2 liter bottle. Fill it half with one liter spring or rain water. Half filled so the liquid could be shaken vigoursly.

5.      Add a drop of Mother Tincture from Step 1. Add it into the one liter water in 2 liter water bottle.

6.      Since One drop is equal to 1/10 ml, adding it into 1000 ml makes the ration of 1:10000, which is 4x potency or 2C. 1C = 2X. 30 C = 60X.

7.      Medicine is ready only if you shake the bottle vigorously by banging it at least 50 times. This is called dynamization.
