When to dose again? And question about one's remedyHi, I posted this thread recently
Let me tell you this: I gave my dog the higher dose of Silicea and then I went to wash the tsp. When I got back there was something changed. The only word I can describe it is peacefulness about her that I hadn't seen before. And this wasn't just in my head because I tried this remedy last month (lower dose and that diluted in 4oz water) and it didn't work and I wasn't really expecting it to now although I hoped.
But this sense of peace that she has now I haven't seen in a few months.
Anyway when do you know to dose again? When should I please?
If it doesn't help enough do I repeat in a couple weeks? (though what I read is Silicea shouldn't be repeated?)
Also another question is, so this I guess my dog is a Silicea dog. Does this mean any chronic problem she has now or in the future, that Silicea will bring her back to her correct state?
Thank you forum!

A remedy can be repeated safely under the following conditions:
1. When the positive benefits have noticeably begun to fade, or have disappeared altogether.
2. When the remedy has brought up old symptoms that are not resolving on their own.
You should avoid repeating a remedy when:
1. The patient is quite well in themselves and are not complaining of their symptoms (cure is ongoing).
2. The state of the patient completely changes and the remedy is no longer indicated (new remedy probably needed).
3. The symptoms have worsened (patient is aggravating or remedy has been ineffective).
4. The original symptoms have disappeared but now new more serious symptoms have appeared (disease has been suppressed to a more dangerous position).
Lower potencies rarely help a patient that has responded favorably to a higher potency.
It is not predictable as to how long a particular remedy will continue to help a patient. The longer someone needs 1 specific remedy, the more likely that it is the WRONG remedy, as the RIGHT one would cure the tendency to relapse back into that state.

The remedy helped her 2 times from 12-6 months ago. Is that too long of a time?
(Why i'm not going to a professional homeopath is, the only homeopathic vet in this area is NOT a good one. She gave me a list of remedies to try based on a computer suggestion (kind of like the way this site can generate a list if you put in some problems) She also misdiagnosed my dog with lyme disease and swollen thyroid, neither was present. The clinic also tried to deny the body of a dog who died getting neutered was there, then they wouldn't give the dead dog back to the owners unless they paid in full.)
