Comparison of homeopathic preparation methods in pharmacopoeias
Mag. Pharm. Susann Buchheim-Schmidt
Pharmacist and Naturopath (Classical Homeopathy)
The preparations of homeopathic remedies are described in various pharmacopoeias.
The official homeopathic pharmacopoeias in Europe are the European Pharmacopoeia, the German Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia (GHP) and the French Pharmacopeia (FP). Furthermore, various remedies are monographed in the HPUS, the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India or the Brazilian Pharmacopoeia. There are many similarities in the Pharmacopoeia monographs, but also differences, which are interesting as well for the daily routine of therapists as for other problems, e.g.in the calculation of first safe dilutions or regarding safety problems of homeopathic remedies. Pharmacist and homeopath Susann Buchheim-Schmidt compared the preparation methods of the various pharmacopoeias and will discuss about similarities and differences in her lecture.
Parallel hereto a small exhibition on Pharmacopoeia will be shown.
