Wet Dose question?

What is a wet dose? Does that mean taking the pill with water instead of under the tongue?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Yes. But sometimes, people use it synonymously for 'split dose' also.

Please search for 'split dose' using the search button. You have lot of information.

I am copying a post I made shortly after I was first introduced to the Split Dose method of using remedies.

I believe I was the first to coin the term 'Wet' dose to denote the use of the water direct from the bottle which I found necessary when the Split dose did not work due to the extreme dilution of the remedy in the half cup of water.

The wet dose does NOT 'mean taking the pill with water instead of under the tongue'


Dr Luc de Schepper's Split Dose method
From Joe De Livera on 2005-04-22

I believe that you may be successful in the treatment of your ailment by using the technique that Dr Luc de Schepper used and demonstrated to me and his patients when he was with us in Sri Lanka a few weeks ago to treat the survivors of the Tsunami.

The technique that Dr Luc uses for Chromic ailments is to put just 2 pellets of the 6C remedy into 350ml water which is succussed twice before each dose. A teaspoonful of the remedy is poured out from the bottle and put into half a cup of water which is stirred. A teaspoonful is then taken from the cup and is sipped slowly. Since your ailment qualifies as a chronic you can use this method.

For Acute ailments he uses the 200C remedy in 250ml water which is succussed twice before each dose of 2 teaspoonfuls which are taken directly from the bottle tds. Dr Luc details this technique in his book 'Hahnemann Revisited' and emphasizes that this technique is mentioned in Hahnemann's 5th Edition.

I am now using this technique exclusively as I have discovered that it really works as according to Dr Luc the succussion of the remedy increases the potency slightly thereby rendering it more effective in the treatment of any ailment.

Whether you call it split dose or wet dose or by any other name, the inventor of this method is none other than Hahn.

Some people might have made little insignificant changes here and there to the procedure, but the philosophy is unchanged since the last 150 years or so.

If you read the thread 'split dose' everything will be clear to you.

In the 5th Organon he suggested any 'striking progressive improvement' precludes the repetition of the remedy because the cure is already taking place at the fastest possible rate.

At the same time, he taught that the single dose [This is correct, but we need to remember that it was a liquid or wet dose] was not sufficient for those cases that slowly improve over a period of weeks to months. For these cases the Founder recommends administering the remedy in medicinal solution or olfaction [correct, but this was not new] at 'suitable intervals to speed the cure'. Hahnemann called this his new 'middle path' as it stands between the single [wet] dose wait and watch and the mechanical repetition of remedies.

In the strict sense the 'wet dose' means a single dose taken by dissolving the pellets in water/ adding a few drops of the liquid potency to a small quantity of water.

Some People confuse the patients by using the technical terms as they wish, without knowing the history of homeopathy.
