Homeopathic medicines are manufactured through a specific pharmaceutical process called “potentization” in which the substance is serially diluted, that is, it is diluted in a 1:10 or 1:100 solution of distilled water, vigorously shaken, diluted again, shaken again, and this process is continued many times. They follow very specific drug laws and our products are manufactured in a homeopathic drug facility. Homeopathic medicines are commonly diluted so many times that there are very few, if any, of the molecules of the original substance. As a result of the small doses used, there is general consensus that homeopathic medicines that are presently available for OTC use are safe.
The small doses used in homeopathy make its nearly impossible to elicit a poisonous effect. As famed violinist and philanthropist Yehudi Menuhin once said, “Homeopathy is one of the few medical specialties which carries no penalties–only benefits.”
Although skeptics assume that these medicines are simply placeboes, 200 years of experience by hundreds of thousands of physicians and by tens of millions of patients confirm that these small, specially prepared doses do, in fact, have clinical effect. A growing body of research also confirms this. The general therapeutic principle of homeopathy is that “like cures like.” In other words, a very small dilution of a normally toxic substance, in the case of nux vomica, can according to this theory treat the symptoms that a larger dose would cause.
True homeopathic products, when tested in a typical lab, will come back negative for the active ingredient because the ingredient actually exists as a unique energy signature or imprint in the carrier liquid that cannot be measured chemically. It is important to realize that physical elements interact and affect each other in more ways than just chemically. Homeopathic products have continually baffled the American Medical Association when they fail in their chemical lab tests, yet are very successful when put to work in the human body.
Homeopathy stimulates the body through the immune and/or nervous system(s) to change its response to an existing imbalance, thereby stimulating the body to heal itself. Homeopathic’s are usually labeled with numbers and letters following the names of the constituents.
According to the United States Federal Food, Drug , and Cosmetic Act (Section 201 (g)(1)), a homeopathic medicine is defined as an article that is recognized in the official Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States (HPUS), and is intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease in man or other animals.
The HPUS is the official compendium of homeopathic medicines recognized by the FDA. The HPUS is produced from the standpoint of safety, efficacy and standardization of therapeutic ingredients. This compendium provides a clear set of standards for manufacturers of Homeopathic medicines which have not fostered any notable controversy with the United States FDA.
All ARIIX Homeopathic Remedies are manufactured in accordance with the HPUS, so that the users can be assured that they are using products that are safe and effective. Homeopathics use ultra-dilute “micro” doses made from not only plants, but minerals or any other substance found in nature.These minute amounts of natural substances which mimic the body’s symptoms stimulate its attempt to regain homeostasis, or balance. Where allopathic medicine merely suppresses symptoms, homeopathic medicines excite the patient’s immune system and support the natural healing process. Homeopathy is extremely safe, gentle and non-invasive. They also have no contraindications.
Remember Slenderiix is designed to bring the body back into balance. When you are over weight there are many contributing factors and to have long term successful fat loss you must address numerous issues.
Slenderiix employs a modernized approach to homeopathy, blending individual time-proven remedies into one cohesive formula to effectively address all imbalances which contribute to today’s epidemic of abnormal weight gain.
Contributing factors include hormonal responses to excessive stress—whether dietary, emotional or environmental; capacity for cellular detoxification, neurotransmitter communication, stable hunger patterns and freedom from addictive behaviors. All of these contribute to systemic flushing of abnormal fat stores, when balance in achieved. Slenderiix was successfully tested in over 10,000 patients prior to ARIIX obtaining exclusivity and beginning in-house beta testing and clinical observation.
The Materia Medica catalogs all methodology within the discipline of homeopathy and references the functions of each remedy as excerpted below:
Ammonium Bromatum: Indicated in chronic laryngeal and pharyngeal catarrh, neuralgic headaches, and obesity.
Avena Sativa: Exhibits selective action on brain and nervous system, favorably influencing their nutritive function. Indicated in nervous exhaustion, sexual debility, and addictive morphine habit. Best tonic for debility after exhausting diseases and sleeplessness, especially of alcoholics. Also addresses nervous states of many chronic female concerns.
Calcarea Carbonica: Chief action is supporting impaired nutritional metabolism; the glands, skin, and bones, being most instrumental in changes evidenced. Needed for increased local and general perspiration [for normal systemic detoxification]… nausea, acidosis, and breathlessness, a jaded state—mental or physical, due to overwork.
Fucus Vesiculosis: A remedy for obesity and non-toxic goiter, thyroid enlargement in obese patients. Digestion is enhanced, normalizing obstinate constipation, and flatulence diminished.
Graphites: An anti-psoric carbon, most active in stout individuals with fairer complexions, with tendencies toward skin affections and constipation, excess fat storage with tendency to obesity, chronic low body temperature, with delayed menstrual history, who become cold easily, may suffer anæmia with redness of face, tendency toward inflammation of the pylorus or duodenal illness.
Ignatia Amara: One of the chief remedies for hysteria. It is especially adapted to the nervous temperament of women who are of sensitive, easily excited nature, quick to react, rapid in execution and change of mental and physical condition, nervous, apprehensive, rigid, trembling who suffer acutely with mental or physical stress.
Lycopodium Clavatum: Supports conditions where ailments are gradually developing with functional weakening regarding digestion, liver function, and predisposition to uric acid metabolism, intolerance to cold and muscular strength. Marked regulating influence upon the glandular (sebaceous) secretions, those benefitting from Lycopodium lack vital heat [indicating lower than optimal metabolism] have poor circulation, with cold extremities, acute temporary pains, and sensitivity to noise and odors.
Nux Vomica: Typical individuals calmed by Nux are thin, spare, quick, active, nervous, and irritable. Especially adapted to digestive disturbances, flatulent abdominal distention and hypochondrial states, Nux may also address conditions such as ravenous hunger, sour taste in mouth, nausea in the morning after eating; weight and pain in stomach, and feeling worse after eating.
Sulfuricum Acidum: This remedy supports those with chronic acidosis, digestive tract abnormalities, and may be evidenced by a craving for stimulants. Tremor and weakness, hurried temperament, hot flashes followed by perspiration with trembling, diminished rate of healing after medical procedures, gastralgia and hypochlorrhydria.
Thyroidinum: Exercises a general regulating influence over the mechanism of the organs of nutrition, growth and development. Used in psoriasis, tachycardia, arrested development in children, linked to improvement in memory, goiter, obesity, mammary tumors, uterine fibroids, fibroid tumors of the breast. Addresses the sensation of faintness and nausea, extreme weakness and hunger, sensitivity to cold and symptoms of Hypothyroidism after acute diseases, i.e, weakness, easy fatigue, weak pulse. (41)

•ii. As noted, with the merger of the United States Pharmacopoeia and the National Formulary there are only two “official” compendia.
•iii. Homeopathic drugs are also covered by the Medicare-Medicaid Statute, 42 U.S.C. § 1395x (t), which defines drugs to “include only such drugs . . . as are included (or approved for inclusion) in the United States Pharmacopoeia, the National Formulary or the United States Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia.”
