Hahnemann described a disease process as dynamic.
Dynamis means movement and is the foundation of life.
Just as health is dynamic, illness is also in motion. Only a potentiated - dynamised medicine can bring about a cure.
A homeopathic remedy is gradually diluted and shaken. An exclusively diluted remedy has no effect. After each dilution step, the remedy is shaken - "dynamised".
Each medicine is first produced as a mother tincture. For the pharmaceutical production there are detailed specifications, depending on whether it concerns plants, metals, minerals, etc.
