Thank you for your enlightening reply.
In this connection, would you also please tell us whether we are to consider any of the twelve tissue salts in their 200X potency (triturated tablets, not succussed dilutions) biochemic or homeopathic.
As you rightly point out, there is absolutely no original quantitative substance in these potencies. But they are triturated, not succussed. So do they work along biochemic lines or along homeo lines?
Biochemic medicines are supposed to contain triturated physical quantity of the salt. The physical limit for that is 24x. But practically, there is hardly any detectable material after 12x. So usually biochemic medicines are prescribed in low potencies. If the salts used in biochemic medicines are prescribed in 200X, they can not be called biochemic. Simply because a medicine is triturated does not make it biochemic. The methods of trituration and succussion are both homeopathic. There are thousands of homeopathy medicines which are prepared through trituraion.
And you must understand that the tissue salts are not a complete system of medicine. At best they can be called a sub-group of Homeopathy. If you read Sucheller’s work, you will find the medicines have been proved as in Homeopathy. Most of the symptoms given in Sucheller’s work and homeopathic materia medica’s are same. The drugs are potentised in both case. The criteria of selection is slightly different though. In homeopathy symptom similarity is the only way, where as in biochemic system medicines are also prescribed according to the proposed tissue deficiency.
I hope this is of help,
