Creating Waves of Awareness
Dear all, If i am wrong somewhere in my understanding then please forgive me and correct me because i am here for learning. That's why I am sharing my views, I wish to know why homeopathic medicines are prepared in organic solvents like alcohol. Am I right?
Sometimes I feel that solubility of the crude medicine can be one of the factor but it should not be true for all the medicines. For example, Natrum Muriaticum is prepared from common salt and can be easily soluble in water in any concentration. So, why is the medicine available in the market using alcohol as solvent rather than water?
This question always comes into my mind because in the human body, if I talk about the cell then the cell's environment is aqueous, which means water and organic solvents are not present.
Even though the medicine contains very minute quantity of alcohol and it is not going to have any ill effect, but can't we prepare the medicine in water?
