LMK potency equivalence

My homeopath gave me

CROTALUS HORRIDUS LMK 5 drops daily

but the dilution is referring to a scale that I cannot find in the US.

Can anybody tell me what's the equivalent of the

Cemon Unda LMK liquid dilution

in the USA?

Thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You are obviously in wrong hands. LMK if I understand correctly is an extremely high potency.

Dear Doctor Sameer,

the anwer I need, from you or anybody who has knowledge of the different potency scales around the world, is just what is the equivalent - in the USA - of the italian LMK potency drops.

Can you answer that?

'LMK if I understand correctly is an extremely high potency.'

I cannot tell you if you understood correctly or not: you should know that, I am asking you.
Can you answer that? Do you know what is the equivalent of an LMK liquid form in the USA?

Before terrorizing me and telling me that I'm in the wrong hands, I would love your kind reply on a much simpler matter: the potencies equivalents from a country to another.

Thank you.

lmk equivalence is 50m or 50000c or 50000ck or 50000k.

are you sure?

I know that LM scale works differently than M or C scale.

so the question is:

italian LMK = american LM

or

italian LMK = american 50M

?

Thank you

I am warning for your own good. Stop being so offended at hearing the truth.

The potencies prepared according to the Korsakovian method are denoted as K. Today, the succussion of K- potencies is by machine and lower alcohol concentrations are used (47% or 24%). LMK = 50 M, which is an extremely high potency, and when repeated every day, it can cause lifelong harm.

Ok, I understand.

The fact is that my homeopath has been curing me with

Sepia LMK (50.000 K)
and then
Sepia DMK (500.000 K)

5 drops taken DAILY for 6 months!
And nothing bad happened.

Actually many of my symptoms improved, except my acne. So he changed my remedy.

Is it possible that in Italy we simply use different scales and that an LMK potency is not that high and/or harmful?

I just need to understand.

Thank you again...

'K' refers to the method used to make the potency. It stands for the 'Korsakovian Scale' which is where rather than using new vials for each potency, the same vial is emptied and used repeatedly.

I have seen both LMK and 50MK used to describe the same potency, and to describe different potencies. The LM potencies can be made using the Korsakovian method as well, so I think you will need to go back to your homoeopath to confirm what potency you are taking. If there is no number given after the LM it is probably 50M, which as Sameer has said is a high potency.

I have used 50M and CM on some patients to good effect. If you are getting good results and no side effects I wouldn't worry too much about the specific potency used. Each person has their own individual needs around potency.

Dr. Tinus Smits uses multiple doses of 50M to cure Autism with success. His book 'Autism Beyond Despair Cease Therapy' outlines his use of high potencies in such cases.

Thank you, doctor, this is the answer I was looking for.

Daily dose of 50M for 6 months is not needed for any disease on this planet. It is bound to cause harms but, not every patient will be able to notice these changes.
 
sameervermani 8 years ago
ok, then.

Sameer is still right to offer a caution. Any medicine repeated too often can cause problems, and high potencies have very long durations.

are you kidding? I have been searching what LMK is. I am very sensitive, and ask for LM. I saw no number, thought it was LM1. This homeopath has tried several remedies on me, all in LMK liquid, taken daily. each one, after one or two doses, I am worse, with aggravation. if it is that high, why would someone use LMK especially on a hypersensitive patient who is used to LM1 or even 6c???!!!!

I am thankful for this post, Sameer, and everyone who wrote in. I was seeing a personal homeopath who was giving me various remedies, every time was LMK in a large bottle, to be taken 1 tsp daily. each one, I could only handle a dose or two and had problems. I was frustrated he was not finding the right remedy, I see her now it was most likely the potency. He gives this potency to every patient. This is why we need this forum, we can go to personal homeopath and pay them, but sometimes they don't know what they are doing. much better advice on this forum, thank you.
