The ABC Homeopathy Forum


My homoeopath has prescribed Carcinosin 200 (3 tablets night, morning, night) for my 6-year-old as a remedy for his asthma. I know almost nothing about homoeopathy but think this seems to be a very high dose. Any opinions out there? Thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Not at all. I find 200c to be a particularly good potency for children, and many adults. Children in fact seem to do better on the higher potencies in my experience - their vital energy seems to be naturally higher.

I am not a fan of the 'dry dose' (pillules) as I believe this is more aggravating and less effective over the long run, but the potency selection itself is not unusual.

You might ask your homoeopath about using 'wet' doses though at your next visit (pillules dissolved into water). Our Organon of Medicine clearly states that dry doses should not be repeated in a patient.

Thank you to Brisbane. I suppose I'm a bit skeptical about giving my little boy a remedy which is produced from cancerous tissue! So many of the reasons why it has been prescribed (likes the beach, doesn't like spinach, likes ice-cream) could apply to so many children. Can this remedy do him any harm? Thank you.

If those are the reasons it was given I would agree!

Carcinosin has its own peculiar picture - I hope your homoeopath has prescribed for the right reasons.

Lots of our medicines are made from unpleasant things - poisons, bodily discharges, animal parts, disease matter - and such wonderful medicines they are :) I wouldn't worry about where they came from as the dilution level is so great that you are not getting much of the actual substance.

Any remedy, if given inappropriately, can have side effects. Fortunately, our medicines are not toxic, and side effects will disappear quickly as long as the remedy is immediately stopped.

Side effects only usually appear if the size of the dose is too large, the frequency of dosing is too much, or the patient is especially sensitive. A careful homoeopath can avoid any trouble.

Thanks for your reply. I can't resist asking what you mean by 'for the right reasons'?

Well in homoeopathy we prescribe on peculiar, rare, strange, individual symptoms. Those would be the right reasons :)

The wrong reasons would be to prescribe on common, general, non-descript symptoms.

Prescribing on the normal characteristics of a 6 year old child would not be very effective.

But finding those things which make your child different from others (in a negative way since we are trying to cure them) typically leads to better results.
