Homeopathy and Health Forum
This thread continues beneath the following ad.
FYI, Joe deLivera is not a doctor, people started calling him that over the years and eventually even well known homeopaths thought he was a "dr".
Joe is an 85 year old businessman in Sri Lanka , retired from the forum now,
But still talks to people on his website. He learned about wet dosing from dr.Luc visiting his area and by ethanol pack he just means a liquid remedy.

I cannot but endorse simone717's post above word by word. As i said the wet dose originated with Hahnemann, founder of Homeopathy. Joe used this dose on this forum after learning it from Dr. Luc. The way you described is not the only way to use wet dose.
There are variations. Those can be found from my posts or from those who have used wet dose in their threads---Sameer, GaviniMurthy are some names. A search on this forum or on internet would answer all questions.
♥ maheeru 5 days agoWow. Considering that I read one reply of his to an inquier who called him Joe and stated that only close friends and other colleagues call him Joe, and that he would not reply unless he was addressed properly - ie. as Dr. Joe. That's complete BS. And it's quite disappointing that this site and it's administrators would allow someone to portray themselves as a doctor when they are not. Incredulous.
That aside, is it appropriate to dissolve 4 pellets in water and add 3 drops of alcohol to replicate this mysterious "liquid pack" that I keep reading about but unable to find anywhere? No one seems to be able to answer this. I have read several replies to my question but still not one has addressed this. It's either can be effective or it can't. Based on the principles of homeopathy, and with increasing strenghts based on the 6 succussions before every dose, it seems a valid approach.

You have got explanations already. I will do it again but please try to understand.
If you have pellets, you use them in place of drops. You move the drops to the water bottle and let dissolve. Adding alcohol is not mandatory but would be a preservative protecting the medicinal solution from going bad. But since you are bothered about it do add three drops of alcohol to the water bottle. Do everything ditto as mentioned in Joe's description if you have to, but just insert the pellets instead of ethanol liquid form remedy into the water. You can not replicate mysterious ethanol liquid medicine without appropriate resources but you can replicate the final product ---wet dose bottle using just pellets.
Just before the dose, ask the patient to do succussions. From the bottle patient will need to take doses.
The forum clearly says at the top people responding here may not be medical professionals. Additionally how can any forum prevent a non-medical doctor pretending to be one? So you are better off assuming everyone here as a non-medical professional unless you confirm it yourself.
Besides people sometimes start to call the helpers/healers as doctors despite knowing them not to be just in gratitude. Then it gets picked up by search engine and gets reinforced.
Some people have bloated egos and want respect in some cases deserved and in some others undeserved----just leave it at that thinking what would you do if you meet one of their kind in real life.

Joe , as he got older, wanted people to address him in a more formal manner - meaning use his entire name or mr. Due to his age.
Joe never called himself a dr. There is a culture issue with India and
Pakistan, Bangladesh, where anyone who helps anyone gets called Doctor,
Asap, and it confuses western people. This forum was set up for discussion
And not a clinic. Doctor is not allowed as user names now, but you can see people still calling all kinds of people dr.
Btw- maybe something called ethanol pack is in Sri Lanka- what it is - is simply a liquid instead of pills. You can click this site " shop" at top of forum and click a remedy and see the options of pills or liquid. If in Europe go
To Helios homeo pharmacy and see all choices- Helios
Ships almost worldwide.

♥ simone717 5 days agoIssue is not Joe but wet dose. I think answer lies in:
1. there are more bacteria in mouth than at most unclean places.
2. Why some doctors tell you to dissolve med under your tongue?
3. Make dose palpable than dynamic.
4. Indians and people like us, many people chew paan etc.
5. Strong scents. Now a days even beggars wear Deodorants.
In my opinion it is to avoid losing effect of the remedy due to these/such anti-remedy agents and then to also make it more palpable especially in urinary/urehra related affections.
