Homeopathic Doses

I have hypothyroidism. Last year my homeopathic doctor prescribed Thyroidinum. I do not recall what the potency was and I have since relocated. Researching online I see many different strengths. Can someone explain the homeopathic doses? What is stronger 7C or 8X? And what is 1M? I have gained weight that cannot be lost, I have hair loss and my skin is extremely dry. Can someone help me?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The different potencies all have different uses - it is not appropriate to see them as stronger or weaker in the way that orthodox/pharmaceutical drugs are.

8X might be prescribed when the disease has a lot of tissue changes, or the symptoms being used are very common for the condition. The patient might also have low vitality or have a long history of medical suppression, or be taking a lot of orthodox medication.

7C might be prescribed when there are more symptoms not common to the disease. It might also be prescribed when there are more general effects on the patient (sleep, appetite, energy etc), or if the intensity of the disease is higher (than in a patient that might need 8x).

1M is the 1000th potency, a very high potency in homoeopathy. The intensity of the problem would be very high to use this potency, possible a life threatening emergency. Or the disease may have many mental symptoms, or it may have many very pecuilar aspects not usually seen in the disease. 1M has a particularly powerful effect on the mind, and so people requiring this remedy may present with many symptoms relating to their emotions and ideas (paranoia, delusions, fixed beliefs, obessive behaviors etc).

Thyroidinum rarely cures hypothyroidism - only in very specific kinds of cases (where the person's invidiuality is completely submerged under the common symtpoms for the disease). Homoeopathy works best when symptoms not typical for the disease are drawn out of a person's case and used to prescribe.

Thank you for your reply! Is there any other remedy that you think might be better than the Thyroidinum. I think I took the 7C pellets for about 2 months. I did see some results- I wonder if I should take 30C?

You might want to research a little on how homoeopathy works. The name of your condition is not usually very useful for making prescriptions. Details of your case, symptoms and many other aspects are needed.
