Two distinct processes coexist in the preparation of Homeopathic products.
The first one due to the founder of the homeopathy, S. Hahnemann and the second one proposed by its contemporaneous N. Korsakoff.
The Hahnemannian batch process is universally used for preparations up to 3OCH. The continuous Korsakovian process fits better due to its automatization since the dilution occurs in the same vial which is alternatively filled and emptied after succussion and therefore gives access to higher levels of preparation (CK) 200, 1000,... However pellets at 6, 12, 30 and 200 CK are commercially available.
Beyond 200 they are available in unit dose.
Dilution and succussion processes are fundamental in the activity of an homeopathic product.
The dilution creates a specific motif (and therefore will be related to the pathogenesis) and the succussion will "amplify" this motif as proposed by Berliocchi and Conte (1).
If a correspondence scale has been given in the past between these two processes by M.A. Berne (2) this correspondence table has been quickly modified (3), if not discarded.
The relaxation time T2 of the proton 1H which is around 2 seconds has been measured by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) on Nitric Acid (NO3H) diluted in very pure water for a range varying from 1 to 29 CH and CK with an interval of 2 CH, (or 15 dilutions values).
The accuracy reached by Y. Lasne with this method is around 2% (4).
The use of the contonian statistics will give access to a correlation between these two processes.


Three samples of Nitric Acid were prepared by dilution in very pure water (a pure water is a water who will give a relaxation time nearly identical within the overall accuracy for water, diluted water and succussed one) and succussed.
The first preparation was produced according to the Hahnemanian process, the second one following a Korsakovian continuous process, the third sample was the reference and consists of NO3H diluted in pure water.
The relaxation times for these three samples are given in figure 1.
Click here to zoom  the Figure 1 The relaxation time expressed in Millisec for the Korsakovian process is higher than the relaxation time for the Hahnemannian process, both processes giving for the NO3H samples higher relaxation time than the same NO3H only diluted in pure water.

Their respective lagrangians are, as expected, very linear.
The phase displacement between one process and the reference sample is plotted as a function of the dilution level for the two processes and given in figure 2.
For a dilution level higher than around 100 CH the Hahnemannian process gives an higher phase displacement than the Korsakovian process.
Since the phase displacement can only be comprised between zero and Pi (zero to minus Pi having the same absolute values) when the phase displacement reaches 100% of Pi, it will then decrease beyond to the maximum dilution level.

Click here to zoom  the Figure 3 For NO3H theses maximum are 728 CH for the Hahnemannian process and 822 CK for the Korsakovian one. However, from zero to 70 CH the phase displacement for the Korsakovian process is higher than for the Hahnemannian one as shown in figure 3.
At 30 CH the phase displacement for the Korsakovian process is around 12 times higher than for the Hahnemannian one.


Click here to zoom  the Figure 4 Why the two processes give different phase displacements when diluted and succussed identically?
In the remanent wave model this can only be explained by the interaction of the field created by the surface of the process chamber and the remaining liquid film.
The creation of such field is directly related to an anomaly in the time space dimension.
This field effect is acting as a "super Succussion" of the liquid remaining on the surface, this effect being predominant at low dilution levels.
In the remanent wave model the created phase displacement will interact with the patient to produce either an aggravation or a cure of the symptoms.
A large phase displacement will be therefore more active than a small one.
We have plotted on figure 4 the ratio "R = Delta of the phase H/ Delta of the phase K" of the phase displacements generated for the two processes as a function of CH (CK).
As it can be seen (figure 4) this ratio is far to be "simple" and depends on the measurement accuracy and the type of product analyzed.
