More about the substance used to prepare phosphoric acid homeopathic remedy:
The homeopathic remedy phosphoric acid is produced from diluted phosphoric acid.
There are various ways to obtain phosphoric acid chemically. Historically, the phosphoric acid used to derive the homeopathic remedy of that name was obtained by soaking small pieces of bone in sulphuric acid in order that calcium phosphate in the bone would react with the sulphuric acid. Further processing resulted in the formation of crystals of phosphoric acid, which had to be kept in an airtight container in order to retain them in their solid (crystalline) form. However, phosphoric acid is now produced from phosphate minerals such as apatite.
Homeopathic preparations are usually supplied in either liquid or pill form. Regardless of the physical form in which the remedy is taken, its preparation will have involved a series of dilutions during which the original substance was repeatedly diluted and succussed (shaken) in a solvent such as water and/or alcohol.
