Low potency combo homeopathics limited usefulness in treating Chronic illness

Byron White

Hello Everyone,

BWF Herbals vs Low potency combo homeopathics

I wanted to address a question that comes up frequently, when working with the area of drainage and detoxification in chronic illness, from patients and Practitioners:

I have used  low potency combo homeopathics and want to ask why they often do not help a person that has chronic illness ? What do you recommend I do for drainage/detox  in chronic illness?

I am a  proponent of homeopathy and have found it to be useful in the hands of a very skilled practitioner. I used it in my practice both constitutionally and with the use of specific nosode dilutions on a individual basis. That being said, practitioners often tell me that they have used homeopathic formulas and have found them not to work and asked why and what have I found that works better?

Combo low potency homeopathics are not sufficient for detoxification

It has been my experience that low potency catch all homeopathic remedies are not sufficient for use in chronic illness and detoxification. Early on when German biologic homeopathics were first introduced I tested them and utilized them in my practice and did not find them very useful with detox and chronic illness. And subsequently tested and worked with botanicals and found that they were much more effective.

What is  constitutional Homeopathy?

First a little background,  homeopathy is based on the law of similars, like cures like. Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, originated in the late eighteenth century. The name homeopathy is derived from two Greek words that mean “like disease.” The system is based on the idea that substances that produce symptoms of sickness in healthy people will have a curative effect when given in very dilute quantities to sick people who exhibit those same symptoms. Homeopathic remedies are believed to stimulate the body’s own healing processes.

Classical homeopathy usually gives only one homeopathic after taking an extensive case history of the patients symptoms, helping the practitioner match the persons symptoms to the appropriate remedy and potency. The potency is crucial, for you can have the right remedy but the wrong potency and the remedy will often not work and with good reason, which we will address in a moment.


Homeopathy was created by German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843), who was much disturbed by the medical system of his time, believing that its cures were crude and some of its strong drugs and treatments did more harm than good to patients.
Hahnemann performed experiments on himself using Peruvian bark, which contains quinine, a malaria remedy. He concluded that in a healthy person, quinine creates the same symptoms as malaria, including fevers and chills, which is the reason why it is effective as a remedy. He then began to analyze the remedies available in nature by what he called provings. A Proving  is done by dosing healthy adults with various substances and documenting the results, in terms of the dose needed to produce the symptoms and the length of the dose’s effectiveness.
Hahnemann formulated these principles of homeopathy:
  • Law of Similars (like cures like)
  • Law of the Infinitesimal Dose (The more diluted a remedy is, the more potent it is.)
  • illness is specific to the individual

Homeopathic practitioners believe that illness is specific to an individual. In other words, two people with severe headaches may not receive the same remedies. And there is good reason for this, which will be addressed.

The homeopathic practitioner will ask the patient questions about lifestyle, dietary habits, and personality traits, as well as specific questions about the nature of the headache and when it occurs. This information gathering is called profiling or case-taking.

Later on many homeopathic systems developed that differed from the original classic approach, such as using multiple remedies at the same time or in series at various potencies. Instead of using one potency , and one substance, many substances and many different potencies were used at the same time and in my experience these type of remedies do not work well with chronic illness and often can get in the way of someone recovering their health and even suppress or drive symptoms deeper into the body or confuse the body.

German biologic medicines, Homochords and their limitations:

Some companies developed low potency remedies, that used single potencies for stimulating the curative process and others developed multiple remedy and potency formulas, taking some symptom pictures of the the original constitutional form of homeopathy and putting them together in one formula and others utilized herbs as well, in dilute forms, at low potencies .

Low dose combo homeopathics similar to how drugs are used

Although these formulas are still called homeopathics, they share little in common with the original system. Instead of being based on extensive symptoms of the patient, they were developed to be used much like drugs, you have this, so take this. They were no longer based on each individuals constitution and the various needs of the individual but fell short of the original intention of homeopathy, of addressing each person as an individual and assessing their individual needs emotionally, physically, environmentally, spiritually,ect….

Low dose combo homeopathics fall short of constitutional homeopathy

These ares in bold are the reason that they can fall short as a therapeutic modality for treating the whole person. They are symptom or disease based, instead of based on the where the person is, as a whole person. A mistake that is often made in medicine, treating a condition instead of the person. Classical homeopathy worked because the remedy matched the symptoms of the person and the practitioner gave the person the right potency, based on their knowledge of homeopathy and this particular person at this particular time. Multiple potencies and homeopathics, does not do this. As a result it is very easy to miss the mark…

Low dose homeopathics found in many to not be tolerated

In my testing I found that multiple homeopathics and potencies, especially low potencies would often not help beyond the acute levels and often would not test. They were mostly stimulatory in nature and most of the people I worked with could not tolerate them. These formulas were using potencies from 1x up to 12x as well as combining various homepathics in the same formula.

Illness and restoring a persons health are  a complex set of issues that need to be worked with in their totality rather than in a limited basis as do low potency homeopathic combo remedies. In my experience if low dose homeopathics are used, they are best utilized in single potency to be able to work with specific levels or layers, systems, based on what is happening with the person.

BWF Herbals were created to work with the whole body health and restoration

When the BWFs were created they were designed to work with all the layers of the body, so there would be no possible over stimulation like low dose homeopathics can create. In this way, working with the whole body, in cooperation with restoration of health, would provide the greatest lasting restoration of health.

The BWF detox formulas were designed with these principles in mind and clinically tested and utilized with thousands of patients and found to be the best way to help the body to detox at all layers progressively without interfering with body functioning.








DETOXIFICATION- why its critical to regaining your health


Byron White

Good Day Everyone,

Toxicity from daily living is happening for all of us. Understanding how we can support our body in decreasing these toxins and detoxifying, is crucial for our health.

Toxicity we are exposed to and why Detoxification is now mandatory-

Toxicity is an ever present issue now, in each of our lives, as we are all aware of. Each child that is born is now entering life with hundreds of toxins and chemicals, radiation, already in their systems. The average person has to process pounds of pesticides and herbicides a year. There are chemicals added to our foods, GMO unlabeled food that have the ability to change our genetics and further poison us, vaccines, as well as toxins, drugs, metals, in our water and found in our air.

Our detoxification systems must process this higher level of toxins and unfortunately is not able to do so without our help. Peoples livers are degenerating at a quicker rate than every before as well as the rate of cancer increasing, and health in general declining. If you are dealing with a chronic illness, these toxins can cause further problems for you, by increasing inflammation, creating a better environment for pathogens, by decreasing our body’s ability to defend itself and decrease our cellular health from all the free radicals we are being exposed to in our lives.

We can decrease some toxins by eating organically and avoiding GMO foods, eliminating bad habits, like smoking and what we ingest, take our supplements and exercise, use non toxic detergents for our dishes and clothes, ect… but it will still not be enough to rid our body of all the toxins and radiation we have been exposed to daily, that continues to damage our system and interfere with us getting well.

Every health program should include detoxification 

I have used and developed detoxification processes in my practice, because they were needed as early on as 30 years ago and toxicity is much much worse now. If you are dealing with lyme disease or other chronic illness, in my experience you need to be on a detoxification program and if using our formulas such as A-L, A-Bart, A-Bab, A-FNG, A-Myco, A-V, A-Cpn,ect… it very important that you be supporting your system with our detoxification formulas which were designed to work effectively at all layers and with our other formulas.

Practitioners are discovering problems such as inflammation, detox pathway breakdown, Gall bladder and liver issues, diabetes, hormonal problems, nervous system problems, infections, colon problems, ect… all things that toxicity contributes to or most likely is causing. You must be eliminating toxins and I recommend only our herbal formulas be used when utilizing our other formulas.

What I recommend when working with our formulas

We have several detox formulas specifically created to work with our formulas.

They are Envi-rad, Detox 2, Detox 1, BT-Detox, NT-Detox. We offer practitioner teleconferences on their usage and if your practitioner is not familiar with them, please have them contact us and we can help them with more information.

I always recommend that the practitioners using our formulas begin with detoxification or at the least at the same time as using our other formulas. The benefits to you the patient are: decreased symptoms, lowering the toxic burden in your system, supporting your body in the healing process and recovery and regeneration, helping to cope better with drug toxicity if you are on prescription medications.

Heavy Metal Detox: Using our detox formulas – Look for our next blog!

In our next blog we will detail the results of using our detox formulas and the effects on helping to remove metals and other toxins… by using our formulas, in this case there was an increase of 320% in metal and toxin removal by lab urine testing.

To your continued health, best wishes,

Byron White

The difference between BWFS and copy cat formulas

Hello Everyone,


Byron WhiteThey say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And I can understand that, except when it comes to people getting confused when they see another company using the similar names of our formulas.

Patients and practitioner have contacted us, confused about seeing names of our formulas or similar names being used by another  herbal company.

Please know that unless it has the BW logo(see photo) on the formula, that even though it may be the same name or a similar name it is not one of our formulas and will not work the same or have the same benefits or results.


BWF difference:

1. Our formulas are handmade, avoiding the potential toxicity and energetics depletion that can come from machine production. Most manufacturing companies use plastic or metal vats for production which can leak metals and toxins into the formula. We use only glass for extracting our formulas.

2. Our formulas are extracted in a 1:1 base (1 part herb to 1 part organic grape alcohol), 4-5 times stronger than other herbals manufactured in a 1:4 or 1:10 base.

3. Our formulas are extracted in organic grape alcohol, rather than grain alcohol, avoiding the toxins and gluten that can be in grain alcohol and reactions that can come from vegetable glycerin (see recent blog) based formulas.

4. Our formulas are extracted for 30 days, without use of heat, distillation or other methods that can harm the herbs and final formula. Other formulas are tinctured for as little as 24 hrs.

5. Our formulas have been researched and tested and successfully used in clinical setting for over 30 years.

6. Our formulas do not use infra red heat tunnels to seal the bottles. The tunnels irradiate the bottles with their energy and heat and in my opinion can damage the herbal contents and certainly change the energy of the herbs. We hand seal our formulas.

7. Our formulas use the BWF Layer Method assuring that the formulas will work at all the layers that the body functions and support restoration of health. No other formulas use this method, its energetics and it is proprietary.

8. All the herbs are used are certified organic and wild crafted and our facility is FDA registered and GMP compliant.

9. We offer extensive training and education to practitioners, so people using the formulas are getting the best possible support from their practitioners.
