Arnica 30c wet doseI was reading about how to get rid of brown patches on the face when I read about Arnica 30c. Can someone tell me what 'wet dose' means? I asked them at the health food store. They didn't know if it meant to wet the tablets. They also had a gel. I bought the tablets and have been dissolving them in my mouth but I don't think it's right.

I am copying below an article on the Wet dose for your information:
You can make the Wet dose with the standard pellets but the remedy will not have the same strength and efficacy as a Wet dose made in the manner that I have advised with just 3 drops of the Liquid Dilution in Ethanol.
This is because the pellets are activated by using the Ethanol product of which a few drops are inserted on the dry lactose pellets in the ratio of about 4 drops on 100 pellets. It will be seen that when 4 activated pellets are inserted into a 500ml bottle of spring water, the concentration of the original liquid Ethanol in which the remedy is carried cannot equate the 3 drops that I recommend.
I have had instances where the patient's ailment was not responding to the pellets but reacted positively as soon as the 3 drops of Ethanol were dropped into the same bottle which he had originally activated with the pellets.
Homeopathic remedies are usually marketed in the standard No 20 or 2mm Ø pellets which are used sublingually as the dose but the Wet dose is best taken as a teaspoonful or for convenience, a capful of the bottle. The succussion by shaking hard adds to the power of the remedy and the ailment responds quickly and the patient is cured.
This therapy has been labelled 'Joepathy' by classical homeopaths as the dry pellets cannot equate my therapy in the rate of cure.
You may like to know that I first observed how effective the Wet dose was when Dr Luc de Schepper, an Internationally recognized Homeoapth who was here in Sri Lanka in 2005 for a few weeks to help the survivors of our Tsunami on December 26 2004, used this method of giving remedies to his patients. They were all instructed to bring a small bottle of water when they came to consult him into which he would insert about 4 dry pellets of the remedy which of he had a stock of about 100 remedies. It was after I observed that this method was working better than the dry pellets taken sublingually that I too converted from the dry lactose pellets to the dose in water which he pointed out was not his invention but was first referred to by Hahnemann in the 5th Edition of the Organon and later in the 6th edition. The reference in both editions was to the 'Split dose' where a teaspoonful of the remedy is mixed into a half a cupful of water from which the patient sipped a mouthful. This technique was used to treat ailments like Asthma but I soon discovered that it was not effective for others as the dilution of the remedy was too extreme. It was then that I coined the term 'WET DOSE' which I have used exclusively since 2005 and I am gratified to note that it is now being used by many homeopaths internationally and refered to under the same title 'Wet dose'.
If you are interested to read more about the 'Wet dose' you can type these words into Google to read the many hits that result.
