Homeopathic Remedies and their dilutions

Homeopathic dilution
The homeopathic dilution is to put the base substance (mother tincture or trituration of the product) in contact with a diluent and repeating the operation several times. According to the case of the substance to be diluted, the diluent may be water, alcohol, lactose or saline. The two main methods are dilution: Dilution and Dilution Hahnemannian korsakoviana.

Dilution Hahnemannian
The first dilution method is called "dilution Hahnemannian", by the name of the creator of homeopathy, Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann, who defined it. Is to practice a hundredth dilutions (hence the name "centesimal Hahnemannian, abbreviated CH or C, which appears in the remedies prepared well) or the tenth (Hahnemannian decimal", abbreviated DH, DX or just D or X). To make a dilution 1 CH, diluted one part mother tincture to 99 parts of alcohol at 30? (in the case of a plant), or a portion of ore in 99 parts of lactose (in the case of a mineral). Part of the 1 CH solution thus obtained, again diluted in 99 parts of alcohol at 30? (or 99 parts lactose) will produce a dilution of 2 CH, a part of 2 CH diluted in 99 parts of alcohol at 30? (or 99 parts lactose) will produce a dilution 3 CH and so on.

In the case of the mother tinctures, dilutions are performed in flasks in the case of minerals and animal products, the first dilution is made in a mortar and pestle. Beyond the dilution 5 CH, about any substance becomes soluble in alcohol, at this stage is no longer necessary to resort to shredding. Among the dilutions carried out as described, the most used are the 4, 5, 7, 9, 12, 15 and 30 CH (or Q, and 1, 3 and 6 AH (or D).
