Q: Are any homeopathic remedies made from pork?

PigA: Traditional homeopathic remedies don’t contain porcine (pig) components but potentised remedies prepared from healthy tissues and organs, known as sarcodes, might.

Just look for the word “suis” on the label. Suis is Latin for swine, hog, pig (sow or boar) and if listed among the ingredients means that part of the remedy comes from a porcine sarcode.

Does that mean that each dose carries a small amount of pig? Not necessarily.

Once the remedy has been prepared to 12C, 24X or above in potency, all molecular trace of that porcine material has been removed by the manufacturing process; the only thing that remains is energetic information from the original substance – pig or not.
