Repeating Medicines in high potency.

In recent times I am experiencing a very strange phenomenon in homeo practice even by quite eminent doctors.They are asking their patients to take very deep acting remedies like lachasis, Ars alb, arnica, calc.carb etc (including Nosodes)in very high potency like 1m, 10m & cm as frequently as daily one dose for many days to come.The patients who really do not understand the deep rooted harm that it can do, and in all good faith continue taking it.I for one fail to understand the logic behind this sort of prescription.Even if it for the commercial gains simply placebo would be far better than ruining the case for good in this manner.
Dr.Boger was a very famous doctor in dealing with fever cases.He would observe the case for a couple of days then give just one dose & walk away and then nothing was needed.
I would like to have the opinion of my other friends in this regard and also request dear patients to question their doctors as to why this sort of frequent doses are necessary.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Homeo remedies are stimulation to the vital force. If the remedy is rightly selected it acts with few doses and moderate potency.
The practice of repeating a remedy in high potency frequently even in split doses can't be justified. Patients should remain cautious.

An acute would not need treatment for 10 days typically, it would have resolved itself by then on its own, or the remedy would have worked. Really, an acute will respond within 24 hours to the correct remedy, and most acutes rarely go past 3-4 days (in the crisis stage) on their own unless they are actually manifestations of the chronic state.

Obviously not all diseases run the same way - again like most things in homoeopathy, one would have to look at the specific situation. It is impossible to just apply a rule to everything without knowing what is going on.

One new symptom is not an acute. An acute is a whole change of state, new modalities and characteristics appear, probably even the mood of the patient changes.

If you are the same, but have one new symptom, either you are proving the remedy you are taking, or your chronic disease is continuing to evolve (so is not cured).

In acute conditions also once the improvement sets in it is advisable to stop the medicine or increase the gap of time between the subsequent doses.
However, I always ask pt. How are you feeling? And most of the time the reply is 'though headache is still there or fever is there or cough is still there etc, but I am feeling better.' On such a response I prefer to stop the medicine & give placebo.
Regarding, i or 2 additional symptoms it could be some sort of useful one. like when Kali Bich is given in a low potency a blocked nose will start running.(it is a new symptom)Or there may be some loose motion ( again a new symptom) in a very small infant after a cold b'cos it cant spit out & the mucus flows out through bowel.Therefore, it is always better to wait & watch.

In Dr. Burnett's book on Nat-mur, he reports a case of a cured Ganglion in a 9 year old boy. This means Nat-mur can cause them too (otherwise it couldn't cure them).

You obviously want Nat-mur to be the right remedy, you seem attached to it. Why not just trust your homoeopath and let it play out?

All these things are not magic.You must have faith in your own self & also in your doctor.Your impatience will further increase your problems.Trust in God & be let your doctor work for you.That is all I can suggest,advice,& request whatever you think.

I am a strong believer in positive & negative effects of universal energy. When you get confused & worked up as a patient you also radiate such negative energy to your doctor also and as a result she or he may also get confused. Your calm mind & full faith in your doctor will help him to decide a good prescription.
When I underwent a triple Bypass surgery 16 years back.my doctor asked me 'Are you nervous?' my reply was 'Yes, as much as you are, so let us go along' & we both had a hearty laugh before he knocked me off.Even today his greeting remarks to me whenever we meet is 'are you nervous?'& we have a good laugh together.I hope you take my message in good spirit.

Don't try HARD to relax. Relaxation is a very easy & natural process.Have you seen any birds trying hard to chirp, a flower trying hard to blossom, Sun try hard to raise. just let go & let HIM!
