Low dosage lycopodiumHi there. Can you get a reaction to low dose lycopodium at 6x potency or even 15X? I have very severe sensitivity issues to meds, herbs, chemicals, everything really, and could swear that I developed severe liver and gallbladder issues (low functioning) after taking these doses in a combination "liver remedy". I consulted an online homepath and they said my remedy was lycopodium, and suggested taking a 200c dose but i never took it in fear of a reaction. I just need to know if taking a low dose (6-15) can bring on a severe reaction/symptoms. If so, could I take a very low dose at 3c or 3x to be on the safe side - or will that also cause a reaction.

If you are taking single medicine you need not restrict yourself to lower dilutions. 6x to 200c may be a big jump however some homeopaths mention that below 200c LYC. can create aggravation in some subjects. You can move to 6c then 30c and then 200c. Or you can start with 30c.
But since you feel you are sensitive, do not mechanically repeat the doses. Take one dose at a time and slowly move ahead.
Alternatively sensitive people can dilute the medicine in water to reduce aggravation/reaction.
♥ maheeru 7 months agoThank you! Does this mean that I should NOT repeat a 6x dose? Are you saying that I should just take a 6x once, then see how I do with that. Then take a 15x dose - see how I react to that. Then take a 30c dose and see how I react to that - all in a slow, step wise fashion?
Also, can I take a combination remedy for liver complaints that has 6x lyco in it, with other remedies at lower potencies (highest up to 12X)? Its called GUNA LIVER. Im asking bc i want to do the approach that will have the least chance of provoking a reaction.
krisymar 7 months agoNo it's not like only one dose of 6x or 30c. It depends how many doses you can take would depend on how many doses you can tolerate without adverse reaction. If you can tolerate a few doses say six(four to ten would usually suffice to get the beneficial action if potency is used instead of dilutions) then you can try the doses slowly one by one then move on to next potency.
I think with your sensitivity, combination is not a good idea. Atleast if you go by one medicine, you can slowly ascend the potencies and slowly take the doses giving sufficient gap. But with combination there won't be higher potencies and since more medicines are there anti-doting will also be difficult.
My advice would be to drop lower dilutions like 6x, 15x and start with 6c, then move onto 30c. 6x, 6c, 30c, 200c, and 1M are the most optimal potencies with which 80% of homeopathic cures/successes have been recorded.
Some medicines are generally prescribed in lower dilutions there you can easily use mother tincture or lower dilutions like 6x, 15x.
