Precaution while using Homeopathy
Potentiation through dilution
Related to the law of infinitesimals is the concept of potentiation through dilution. The preparation of a homeopathic product involves a step-wise dilution process along with succussion. Each dilution is succussed, or shaken vigorously. It is believed by homeopathic practitioners that this process leaves behind the image, essence, or spirit of the original compound in the water. The more times this process is repeated, or the more dilute the end-product, the stronger the homeopathic preparation.
