How & where are remedies made?

All our single remedies are made by specialist homeopathic pharmacies.

We generally buy from Australia (Martin & Pleasance) but may also purchase from New Zealand (Simillimum) or the UK (Helios), depending on what it is we need.

Pharmacies may have different remedy lists because sometimes they have a special interest or work with a homeopathic clinic with a special interest. They may make new remedies, which are unique to their pharmacy, and in turn these remedies may be shared with other pharmacies.

Many of our base remedies have been in existence for decades, and some may be as old as 200 years or more. This is because the pharmacies themselves may share their source material in a form known as a “back potency”, so that the source material becomes more widely available.

Sometimes the original source material of the remedy is unknown because remedies are often passed from pharmacy to pharmacy over time.

Remedies are made according to guidelines laid out in the British or United States Homeopathic Pharmacopoeias.

Due to the way remedies are made, a process known as dynamization (succussion and dilution), there is none of the original substance remaining and they are rendered non-toxic and, according to the TGA, “low risk” only because regulations now prohibit us from saying they are “safe and effective”!
