Difference in potencies/success stories

Hi, I was wondering if someone could explain to me what the different potencies mean such as: 6X, 6C, 30C, 30X, 200CK, 1M, etc...

Also I was wondering if there was a place to hear homeopathic success stories? Like people who took a constitutional remedy and then was cured.

Lastly, do Bach Flower Essense work? Are they better or worst than traditional homeopathic meds?

Thank you for a response,

Type potency in the search box and read.

There are many threads in the archives.

Hello Nick25.

The potency designation of a remedy simply denotes how many times the process of serial dilution and sucussion has taken place, and the dilutiona ratio used. So for example a 6x (or 6D in some countries) denotes that the remedy has been potentized 6 times, at a dilution ratio of 1:10, the decimal scale. A 30c denotes this process has been carried out a total of 30 times, at a dilution ratio of 1:100, the centesimal scale. A 1M is equivalent to writing 1000c, a 10M 10,000c etc etc.

If there is a 'K' in the designation, this simply denotes that the remedy has been prepared by Korsakovian machine rather than by hand.

I guess forums would be the best place for this, at least online, but this of course would depend on the sucess rate of the prescribers. There is nowhere specific though.

They most certainly do, and in a similar way to potentized remedies (albeit in a much, much 'weaker', and less specific manner). Flower essences can only really be thought of as 'band aids' to the most superficial aspects of the vital force though, as they do not treat the cause of disease. They are for the most part (except in some acute type/corporeal situations) meely a sophisticated and dynamic form of palliation.
