Question about alcohol in homoeopathic dilutions:
Alcohol is manufactured based on organic ingredients. It may be from corn, wheat or other, depending from the supplier.
In homoeopathic dilutions and mother tinctures alcohol plays an inevitable role as dissolver, preservative and bearer of the active substances. Our medicines are strictly manufactured according to the rules of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann and according to German Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia which was set by Dr. Willmar Schwabe. These methods and the high efficiency of our medicines have been proven in the last more than 160 years.
Based on the reason that alcohol has been proven as the only suitable bearer substance, it cannot be replaced by any other substance, as there is no other substance which would fulfill necessary quality and efficiency requirements. So there is significant methodical aspect, which prescribes the necessity of alcohol in homoeopathic dilutions.
If you have a problem to use homoeopathic dilutions, we can suggest using our medicines in tablet form.
Dr. Willmar Schwabe has been successfully delivering dilutions to Pakistan, India (having a big number of Muslim populations) and Bangladesh for over 160 years without any complains, as our medicines successfully help people to heal their diseases.
Homoeopathic dilutions are medicines and must be taken in medicinal dosages, according to the prescription of a physician or an experienced homoeopathic doctor.

Question about burning sensation after using CMS:
The "burning sensation", or more precisely the irritation on applying Cineraria Maritima Schwabe eye drops is due to the concentrated juice of the drug content as well as to the content of alcohol. Since the active ingredients of Cineraria Maritima are not soluble in water, alcohol is a must for the authentic stability of the product.
This irritation also produces a desirable effect as it helps improve local blood circulation and thus is considered beneficial in cataract treatment. As such, there is no likelihood for this effect to reduce with the continued usage.
The intensity of the irritation is felt quite subjectively, and apparently is depending upon many different modalities of the patient in question. If the irritation is felt burning too badly (which can be caused e.g. by overdosage), we recommend not to continue the use of the product prior to consultation of a physician or an eye specialist.
