Herbal VS Homeopathic – what is the difference?

What is the difference between a herbal and a homeopathic remedy? A herbal remedy is taken from a plant, for example, that is grown in a specific way and specific parts of the plant are used and they’re put into alcohol, macerated and then you get what we call a tincture – a herbal tincture. So that would be another word would be a mother tincture. So then homeopathic remedies can be made from herbal tinctures and essentially, it’s the dilution of that tincture either 1:10 or 1:100 that then is repeated that would give you the homeopathic remedy. And depending on how many times it’s repeated it will give you the strength of the remedy. We definitely need to have you back because I’d like to talk about the attack on homeopathy as a modality. But thank you for your time, I really appreciate you coming through. I’d love to be back. Thanks for having me.
