Pls help aggravation caused by Plussing method

I'm currently administering the plussing method on my 73-year-old father, who has a prostate cancer with bone metastasis.

I started giving him Conium 200C by plussing method one week ago, and I'm thinking of alternating it Scirrhinum 200C for the next week,and proceeding according to Dr.Ramakrishnan's method. After a week's dosage, he is having some sort of aggravations,such as pains in back,unusual sleepiness, improved urination, dizziness,etc. The reason why I feel they are homeopathic aggravations,rather than worsen condition of his disease itself, is that he didn't have any of those symptoms at all before starting this treatment. He says the pains are not unbearable at this moment.

The questions I'd like to ask people are:

1) When aggravations occur, is it better to continue the dosing since they're good signs of remedy working, OR I should stop the treatment until the aggravations are gone.

2) Is there any preferrable time of a day to have this over-2-hour-dosing? He's been doing it in the morning, but I wonder if doing it before sleep may be more effective.

He stopped the hormone therapy a couple of month ago, after 7 years of going through it since his PSA level had been going up gradually anyway. His PSA level is currently 57. He was originally well-built physically and is very responsive to any sorts of medicine, including homeopathic remedies. In spite of being at the advanced stage of prostate cancer for seven years, he didn't complain much physical problems until this summer, when he started to experience some pains in the neck and back. I've been observing his physical strength declining in the past few months also.

In fact, I have very few experiences in Homeopathy but I'm doing my best to cure my father's illness. I've been reading and learning a lot from what people write at this forum. I'd highly appreciate any advise and/or comments from those who know about plussing method. Thank you so much in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
We do not know how many time the medicine was repeated.Frequent repetition often gives aggravation particularly in old age and when the vital force is weak.
If the medicine is effective,cut down the repetition and if the effect is still vigorous then change the potency to 30c or 6c.

Thank you so much, sajjad, for your advice. It's very much appreciated. The dosage is one teaspoonful every 15 min, up to 10 times, which I read was the original Ramakrishnan plussing method. Having taken your advice into practice, I tried to cut down to 5 times today to see how it goes. I can assume the remedy is 'effective' since it's causing him aggravations, is it correct? Thank you so much again for your posting.

I would say give at the most twice daily.
I am not in favour of frequent repetition particularly in diseases like this.
Ramakrishnan has his own experience.It is not necessary to follow him.
Slow and steady wins the race.

aggravation lasting for few minutes or few hours is homeopathic and harmless but prolong aggravation is non homeopathic and dangerous.
Most of the time aggravation passes away so smoothly that the patient do not feel it.This is the best of all.
The correct and sure indication of correctly selected remedy is that the patient recovers both mentally and physically at the same time.

Thank you, sajjad, for your postings. I didn't notice your last two postings until today. By 'give at the most twice daily,' do you mean the remedy is given twice in 'plussing' form, instead of pills? The pains he used to have (which comes from bone metastasis)have been greatly relieved, but his feet are getting weak. I lowered the potencies but have been giving hime 10 time per day plussing. After reading your last postings, I guess I'm going to give him less often. Your postings have been and will be much appreciated.
