This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
CM and MM are different potencies. CM is 100M and MM is 1000M. There is no way to compare between them.

Dear sir thank you for your promt reply.however i would like to clarify that what you told me is known to me.actually there are different method of making homeopathic medicine like fincke method , swan potency karsakoff potency.generally the medicine available in the market is karsakoff potency.my question was what is the validity of fincke potency,is CM potency made by fincke method is as effective as CM potency made by karsakoff method.i think very few people know about it because it is not required for homeopathic treatment.

Different manufacturers adopt different processes of making the potencies.





The basic difference lies in the way a drop which is to be added with another 99 drops is isolated.

The hannemanian method takes out a drop physically from the previous solution into a new vial each time.

The Korsakoff method relies on emptying the bottle and using the drop clinging to the neck for making the next potency.

The fluxion method is more complicated. Some manufacturers don't succuss at all in between making the potencies, but instead use water jets to achieve the same purpose.

Each one of them vows that their own methods are effective.

The fact of life is the medicines from all reputed manufacturers do work despite the difference in their methods of preperation.

To compare one potency from one manufacturer with another potency from another manufacturer is futile as there are so many variables in the methods they adopt.

It is enough to know that a medicine labelled 10M may not be exactly 10M as per the Hannemanian methods, but that atleast the number of dilutions are more or less close to 10000 times and that some process equivalent to succussion is ensured.

These issues have been discussed many times in the past and many of us are aware of the details.

If you really need MM potency go ahead and use it. Personally I won't like to use potencies like MM unless I am hundred percent sure that the remedy choice is perfect and the potency selection is appropriate.

One shouldn't experiment with these highest potencies. If used indiscriminately they are capable of creating havoc even with the psyche of the people.

According to an article in the American Observer Medical Monthly (1881), the Fincke potencies are not comparable to the centisimal potencies prepared in the standard way. Roughly speaking, the Fincke potencies are 15-23% of the others, so a Fincke MM is actually just a little more than a CM.
