What potency Ignatia?I've been having some breathing problems and am pretty sure I need Ignatia. (I've taken it before.)
What potency should I take or what guidelines should I follow for figuring out what potency I need? Meaning, since physical symptoms are predominant at the moment, does that mean I need to go low -- like 30c -- maybe several times per day or is Ignatia one that really does its work in high potency?

No one needs more info-- Ipecac is more likely than Ignatia!.
Read other posts and see what we need to know - also enlightening !.

In those 20 years I've been under the care of 4 different homeopaths and each had completely different ideas on prescribing and potency.
I recognize that my breathing problems are probably related to grief and I'm asking for advice on deciding on a potency, not deciding on a remedy. My question is: If you were prescribing Ignatia, what guidelines would you use for deciding on a potency?
Thanks for the help.

Two ways to go Look up the book and see if the remedy matches your TOTAL condition - fairly closely. If it does then take the high road. Use 10m , then wait until any beneficial effects wear off and then repeat.
To be honest if you are involved in grief then high is probably best.
Other way is to use low 3x-6x when the low potency has a broad band effect without having to get the nail on the head.
Hope this helps.

The technique that Dr Luc uses for Chromic ailments is to put just 2 pellets of the 6C remedy into 350ml water which is succussed twice before each dose. A teaspoonful of the remedy is poured out from the bottle and put into half a cup of water which is stirred. A teaspoonful is then taken from the cup and is sipped slowly. Since your ailment qualifies as a chronic you can use this method.
For Acute ailments he uses the 200C remedy in 250ml water which is succussed twice before each dose of 2 teaspoonfuls which are taken directly from the bottle tds. Dr Luc details this technique in his book "Hahnemann Revisited" and emphasizes that this technique is mentioned in Hahnemann's 5th Edition.
I am now using this technique exclusively as I have discovered that it really works as according to Dr Luc the succussion of the remedy increases the potency slightly thereby rendering it more effective in the treatment of any ailment.

I have recently read what you had to say about potencies of Ignatia.
I have just been advised to take Ignatia 1 per week at 200 potency. Do you think this is the correct potency.
I am suffering anxiety in chest region with breathing difficulties.
