What is a Trituration?

The process of trituration in homeopathy

The first process for manufacturing remedies is called trituration. To make a centesimal trituration (C potency), the substance is weighed, and lactose is added in a 99times ratio to its weight. After which a porcelain mortar is filled with one third of the lactose and is rubbed evenly on the surface with a pestle. This is carried out to "close" the pores of the porcelain bowl, so that no remnants of the substance can get stuck to the side and therefore not be included in this process.

After this, the medical substance is added and rubbed vigorously for 6 minutes anticlockwise. (Left handed people would go clockwise). Hereupon, likewise, a sterile porcelain spatula is used to scratch the whole medicine into the middle of the bowl and is freed from any excess material.

If a whole part of a plant is to be used in this process, then it is homogenized with the lactose 1:1 , further, this mixture is taken and mixed 2 parts with 98 parts of the lactose , and is potentized in the aforementioned procedure.

The ideal total amount of lactose, according to experience, is usually around 8 grams, judging by a mortar diameter of approx 12 cm. In our Laboratory we do not dispense trituration batches larger than this.

Once more the mixture is crushed for 6 minutes and scraped for 4 minutes. After this first third is completed, the second third is added to the lactose and the whole rig moral is repeated once more; 6 minutes crushing, 4 minutes scratching. After some twenty minutes have elapsed in this manner, the C1 Trituration has been completed.

We carry out this procedure solely by hand, as the quality of the medical product is therefore considerably higher.

For the same reason, no machines are used to produce these medicines.

When machines are used there is a noteworthy amount of residue (Vulkolatex or Beech wood) from the grater worked into the mixture, also the appliance tends to leave this residue "caked" onto the side of the mortar.


Fresh plant Triturating - C3

This process is described in rule § 270 of the Organon Textbook 6, and it has considerable advantages compared to the mother tincture:

  • As they contain no water they are considerably longer lasting
  • All ingredients are at hand
  • The energy expenditure during the triturating process is substantially higher than during the production the mother tincture.

This is also the motivation for potentizing C- medications based on a C3 trituration, which produces a more authentic medication. whose healing powers are decidedly stronger.

Massimo Mangialavori confirms, that his success rate has increased by 30% since using C3 Triturated C-potencies.
