This modification is perpetuated through the potentization process and is not diminished but strengthened with increased cycles of dilution and shaking.
Dosages of homeopathic remedies vary with the degree of potentization (dilution and shaking).
For anyone with even a passing acquaintance with pharmacology, the Law of Potentization is hard to swallow.
Scientists working in semiconductors and material science should keep an eye on the developments taking place in the understanding of homeopathy, especially its medicines, which are prepared through a typical process known as "potentization." Potentization invites serial dilution with succussion (violent strokes) or trituration at each stage.
Some observations suggesting a homeopathic potentization type study of semiconductors and other materials are as follows:
But such semiconductors are also prepared without carrying out any homeopathic potentization type processes in them.
According to an article by Dana Ullman, an expert on homeopathy who has authored several books on the subject, homeopathic medicines are made through potentization, a pharmaceutical procedure in which a plant, mineral or animal substance is diluted (usually one part of the substance with 10 or 100 parts distilled water).
