Can you increase potency by adding water?

I've heard you can do this. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions. Especially in regard to how much water to add. I'm interested in increasing a 3c remedy to a 12c as Ive found a 12 works better but still have plenty of 3c lying around. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It would require some effort on your part but it is possible.

You would have to have the 3c in liquid form - a combination of alcohol and water 1 part to 5 parts. If you have pellets or pillules you will need to dissolve 3 of those into a small bottle with a lid.

Hit the bottle 100 times very firmly against the palm of your hand or another elastic surface like a book. Empty out the bottle (but do not clean it, leave some of the mixture on the inside of the bottle) and fill it with more water and alcohol in the same ratio. This will now be 4c.

Repeat this another 8 times to reach 12c. This is not the traditional Hahnemannian method which requires you to use clean bottles and measure out an exact amount to transfer - 1% of the mixture, but it is a method that is easier and more convenient to do.

Thank you for your time! So it is a little more complicated than 'just add water' thought so haha. Thank you.

Yes, adding water would just dilute it without creating a new potency - so in fact making it weaker.
