What are homeopathic remedies?
Of course, these are globules. Maybe you got in touch already with homeopathy this way? But what exactly are these tiny sugar pellets?
Homeopathic remedies are produced from various raw material. The largest amount of homeopathic remedies come from plant, animal, or mineral origin. The homeopathic remedy Arnica, for example, is being produced from the tincture of the whole Arnica plant. The animal-based remedy Sepia, on the other hand, is being obtained from the ink of the squid and the mineral-based remedy Aurum metallicum from gold. Moreover, there are homeopathic remedies from so-called Nosodes or Sarcodes. These are pathological substances or preparations from the secretions of healthy organisms from animals, humans, or plants. Like for example the remedy Thyreoidinum, which is produced from thyroid extract. Furthermore, there are homeopathic remedies from totally different raw material like the remedy Penicillinum, made from pharmaceutical products, for example.
Based on the respective raw material, homeopathic remedies are repeatedly diluted and agitated in a process known as “dynamisation” or “potentisation”. This production process is being carried out by professional manufacturers, working according to the exact specifications of the official homeopathic pharmacopoeia.
Homeopathic remedies are very gentle and absolutely safe to be taken.
