The second principle of homeopathy, “the minimum dose” incorporates methods of dilution and potentization which differentiate homeopathic remedies from herbal, vitamin and mineral substances.
Homeopathic remedies are prepared from natural substances found in the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms. Unlike the original crude substance, homeopathic remedies are prepared for dilution and then potentized. The potentization process involves repeated and vigorous shaking “succussion” of each subsequent dilution. Although extremely dilute, this process makes each remedy extremely effective yet devoid of all potential allergic or toxic effects allowing for safe effective healing.
The efficacy of homeopathy has been validated through its successes in treating adults, children and infants as well as animals. Homeopathic remedies can be safely taken if you are on medication, having a surgical procedure or are pregnant.
