Methods of Preparing Homoeopathic Remedies

Homoeopathic remedies are prepared in two ways:
1.   The original  substance  or  extract  is  mixed  in  alcohol, stored for a while and then sifted.  This is called the Mother Tincture.
Many remedies are used in this form such as Carduus Marianus in
liver diseases.   Eight to ten drops dissolved in water and taken by mouth are very useful in many liver disorders.  The letter Q tells us that the homoeopathic remedy is a Mother Tincture.
2.   The Mother Tincture is diluted with alcohol or distilled water in  a bottle, one drop in ninety-nine drops of the diluent and
shaken vigorously two to four times so that it becomes completely homogeneous.  Thus prepared, the potency of the medicine is 1.  For
example, a drop of Mother Tincture of Aconite shaken well in ninety- nine drops of the diluent, alcohol or distilled water is Aconite potency
1.  A drop of Aconite 1 added to ninty-nine drops of alcohol and
shaken well will make Aconite 2.   A drop of Aconite 2 vigorously shaken  in  ninety-nine drops of alcohol will make Aconite 3 and so on.  If the process is repeated thirty times, we have prepared Aconite
30.  Most of the routine homoeopathic remedies are prepared in this way.   The  letter C written along with the potency indicates that in
each dilution, the medicine is diluted one in a hundred.
If the process consists of putting one drop of the Mother Tincture in nine  drops of the diluent instead of ninety-nine drops, the medicine
prepared  would  be  potency  1D,  which  means  ten.    Biochemical
medicines are made in this way i.e. serial dilutions of one in ten using a sugar  substance  Dextrose,  prepared  from  fruit  instead  of  alcohol  or
distilled water.  Some Homoeopaths use the original poison instead of the
mother tincture in a very small amount and mix it in 9 grams of the powdered Dextrose.  They grind it well, and the medicine thus prepared is 1X.   A gram of  1X added to 9 grams of Dextrose well ground will make 2X.  Further similar process will make 3X and so on.
In fact, an increase in potency denotes a decrease in the quantity of the  poisonous substance or extract.    Each time the quantity of the
poison is decreased, i.e. one in a hundred, the potency increases by 1.  In
the biochemical system, as the quantity of poison decreases by one in ten, this is  called potency 1.   In homoeopathic remedies, the letter C is no
longer written.  In some countries, however, they still write C or D with
the potency of their prepared remedies. In the biochemical system, X is always written as a measure of potency such as 1X, 2X, 3X, 6X or 12X etc.  The potency 1000 is sometimes written as 1M, the potency 10,000 is written as 10M and 100,000 is written as CM.
