Abstract

Based on more than 50 years of research, Hahnemann introduced improvements for the manufacture of homoeopathic medicines to raise quality standards. In the case of the fifty-milesimals potencies (Q or LM potencies), this is related to freshness of raw materials; the principle of triturating all substances as far as the 3c; maintaining a regular batch size; the number of succussion strokes and method of impregnation. Manufacturers later ignored these practices or discontinued them without giving valid reasons. Consistent, high-level quality can only be achieved by following the precise methods laid down, for example, for “Pe”-quality Q potencies.
