Creating Waves of Awareness

Are you fully satisfied with the hard tablets?

Most of us use the homeopathic triturations and Biochemic medicines in tablet from. Initially, when I started my practice, I used to get tablets from one of the pioneer institutions in Kolkata (India). Their tablets were very soft and easily dissolving in the mouth, but were not good looking due to easily breaking edges and lack of whiteness. However, the result was excellent with those shapeless tabs. But now the situation is really bad. We are getting the tabs made by some modern companies, which are more harder than the modern medical tablets. I have conducted a study on different trituration products and found that almost all companies are making tabs by adding starch, gum, whiteners etc. Even colored tablets are also available in the market. Why should we imitate Modern medicine by making hard colored tabs? If we keep these hard tabs in the mouth, I am sure, it will take minimum 20 minutes to get dissolved!

As an experiment, I purchased the triturated medicines in powder form and found much better results than the tablets. I feel that the heating of truturated powder in tablet making machine and addition of gum and whiteners, and above all, the hardness of tablet is responsible for the bad results. Some companies are keeping the crystals of silica in each bottle to absorb moisture to prevent the tabs getting damaged, which can also affect the medicine.

It is true that giving the tablet is more convenient for the pharmacists as well as the patients. But the result is more important than anything else, hence we should use the powder in its original form.

[The intention behind this post is not to hurt any pharmacies or agencies, but to emphasize on the necessity to maintain the originality of our medicines]

Thanks for the comments. I have conducted a study on the tablets manufactured by a number of pharmacies. Just by looking at the surface of these tabs, we can make-out that excess of starch and gum is added. Only a few companies are following the HPI standards. Their tables can be crushed easily between the thumb and index finger, whereas, the other tabs need a hammer to crush. Of course, there is nothing wrong in using these tabs for giving placebo.

Dr Muhammed rafeeque your observation on tablets ---In the Manufacturing of-Biochemic Tablets starch is added as an binder its o.1% its in accordance with standard laid down in Homoeopathic Pharmacoeipa of India , there is no gum or whitner being added, the disentregration time is less than a minute, Diskets are also available in the same shape yes they become hard ,discolored they shelf life is less- they are sugar based they are used as placebo , Lactose based placebo tablets are also available

I think the best way is to give the medicine in pure water. Of course, we can use the tabs to give placebo.

Many homeopathic physicians in my town indicate drug doses crushed. Example: Cuprum met. 4DH, .. 6DH, Aurum met. 5DH .. (crushed) in doses ready baggies ...
Other doctors prefer the tablets. Manipulate the two modes.

Yes u may be right in biochemic med. But i seldom use these tablets. Will try to diffrentiat by giving to kids.From where one can get real results.
Just one dose of 2or3 globules of right selected similimum is sufficient to arouse cure process.... i feel so.

Of course, crushing can help. But, it can't remove the gum and whiteners and preservatives added to the tablets. Instead of doing all these, we can take the triturated powder in its original and pure form! Some pharmacies are marketing the powder, but most of us prefer tablets. We Homeopaths speak a lot about quality and purity, but practically, we are not up to the level. We are just trying to imitate the modern medicine.

Is it possible to either crush the tablets between two spoons or let dissolve in water to obtain the quicker results?
