Need input Re: Pellets to wet dosing for my patients

Hello All,

I've looked around on this site and tried to find the appropriate way to convert pellets to wet dosing. I seen where Dr. Joe De Livera mentions a liquid pack, but that's not what I'm working with right now and have the pellets. Curious about adding a 3 drops of alcohol to the spring water with the dissolving of the pellets? It seems that this is what he's talking about as I can find no specific products of this "liquid pack".

I have some patients that I'm not making the progress with acupuncture that I would like and would like to do wet dosing. I have one patient that I began on 30c Arnica TID but not really seeing any improvement. I'd like to convert this to wet dosing but unsure of the best way.

I have also seen that Argentum Metallicum 6c taken with but separate from Arnica 30c works well.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take a look at sameer's cases and on some threads i have also used wet dose. Click the usernames to find the threads. Or you could try search.

It's not how one makes the wet dose that matters, rather the similarity of the remedy to the symptom profile is what matters the most.

Emerson: Answer lies in understanding "need" for a wet-dose. What exactly happens when you make a wet-dose? Why do you make it at all? In my opinion it is making a remedy more "palpable" than "dynamic". Let us discuss.

One thing more:what exactly is a wet dose? How did it start? There are so many more experienced prescribers on this forum. They can throw some light.

Hello Jawahar

I had a past post where i had talked about this wet dose in detail.


Please have a look.

It's basically a dosing method unlike dry invented to give the patient progressively increasing doses(with respect to dilution and strength) in water to make the dose gentle and potent so as the patient does not receive the same potency dose for the second time and the disease so as to speak is conquered with multiple doses(no same potency but in ascending series of slightly varying potency steps) with less aggravation.

I am sorry you do not seem to be clear what you are wanting to know. Your link refers to methods of generating potencies. Pls tell me what is so great about WET dose? Define it first. Tell us why you consider it better? Share your understanding with us first. All remedies are available in liquid form.Do you call liquid remedy a wet dose?

I'm not a homeopath, and I don't have the time to do that type of intake. I'm simply trying to use the more common remedies to see if I can improve their situation. Given that remedies are quite cheap in comparison to others, if it takes 6 remedies before acheiving results, then so be it, it's not an issue given that I am already doing other things to improve their back pain.

Liquid pack is liquid potency medicine---comes in 20% oral liquid medicine and 80% medicating potency---you need to choose the former. Instead of pellets you could use drops from this liquid medicine to add in water to prepare medicinal solution.

As far as the wet dose and it's efficacy and how it's prepared, i have given detailed information already.

I am sorry but I have not come across wet dose concept anywhere with Clarke, Boenning, Herring,Lienthal etc Could anyone please give a source where I can learn. I agree with the concept of succussion. Are we confusing this with wet dose?

Google - hahnemann LM and water potencies byRobin Murphy ND.
He is explaining what hahnemann said about this in the 5th and 6th organon.

5th and 6th editions of organon are sources for wet dose. David little's website is one such authority that simplifies Hahnemann's works. Contemporary h'path like Dr. Luc De Schepper also uses wet doses widely.

It comes from Dr. Joe DeLivera.

"The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user."

Taken from his website. Also, he has many posts on this site. I've looked for this "liquid pack" and can't find it. So, I assumed it could be made by dissolving 4 pellets in 500ml's of water and adding 3 drops of alcohol, which is what I've done.

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.
