D-Potencies

What are D-Potencies?

The name D potency is a shortcut for decimal potency and implicates the dilution of the homeopathic remedy. Decimal potencies are diluted in a ratio of 1:10 in each production step. Therefore, D potencies are the "weakest" homeopathic remedies. 

 

Production of Homeopathic D-Potencies

D potencies are produced using the multi-vial method, which means the vial that's used to dynamize the remedy is tossed after each step of production. At Remedia all D-potencies are succussed by hand. D-potencies are mixed in a ratio of 1:10, and then dynamized by 10 strong shakes on an elastic body (for example a book, bound in leather) or by grinding the original substance with lactose. 

That is:
1 drop mother tincture + 9 drops water/alcohol are sucussed 10 times. 
1 drop of this mixture is extracted, poured into a new and unused glass bottle, diluted with 9 drops water/alcohol and succused 10 times (=dynamized) => D2
1 drop of this mixture is extraced, poured into a new and unused glass bottle, diluted with 9 drops water/alcohol and succused 10 times (=dynamized) => D3
This procedure is repeated as often as necessary to receive the desired potency level. 

The dilution is then used to moisten blank pellets and thereby transfer the active ingredients to the sugar pellets. To produce globules, saccharose pellets size 3 (described in the HAB) are used. This equates to approx. 120 pellets per gram.
