Learning Homeopathy

Homeopathic products

Understanding homeopathy is one of the most difficult tasks when shopping for natural supplements because homeopathic products are very confusing.

LuckyBlog has decided to help our customers, providing a quick guide for homeopathy. A simple guideline to be used by anyone, from first time buyers to long time supplements shoppers.

Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine used to treat an ill person by using a substance that can produce, in a healthy person, symptoms similar to those of the illness. Think of it like treating a snake bite with diluted snake poison, or a flu shot.

The most confusing part of homeopathy is the strength of products.  Labels generally have numbers representing a serial dilution to remove the toxic effects of the substance and to retain the essential qualities.

Vitamins and minerals use milligrams, micrograms and International Units – IU.

Homeopathic products, however, use a unique measurement system. All potencies are indicated with roman numerals. X is for 10, C for 100. You also find regular numbers, such as 6, 9 and 30, associated to roman numerals.

For example, 6X means one part product to 10 (representing the X) parts distilled water is diluted 6 times. A product labeled as 30X has basically the same process but repeated 30 times.

You may think that the more diluted a product is, the weaker is the strength of the product. Wrong.

In homeopathy the more diluted a product is, the stronger it is; therefore, X is stronger than C and C is stronger than M.

In addition, the original dilution is done several times and, as a result, the more times the product is diluted, the stronger it is. As a result, 30 is stronger than 9 and 9 is stronger than 6. The strongest product is 30M or 1:30 1000 times.

Stronger products (30s) are used for acute conditions and are not recommended for long term use. Weaker products (6s) are used for ongoing chronic conditions and may be taken on a regular basis.
