The individual remedies have been derived and potentized from fetal tissue. In the homeopathic process of dilution and potentization, the actual physical stimulus is decreased. This however, results in a paradoxical effect upon the action of the remedy in homeopathic dose, in comparison to its action in crude dose. This is known as the Arndt-Schultz principle, which states that small or medium stimulus (ie. homeopathically diluted) enhance and normalize function and growth, while strong stimulus (ie. crude dose) impede or destroy activity. Utilizing this principle it is possible to influence endocrine dysfunctions that are otherwise extremely difficult to treat.
