Potency and dosage is selected individually based on the case taken. There is no standard dosage in homoeopathy.

Without knowing what kind of symptoms lead you to the remedy, without knowing what kind of disease she has, and without knowing how intensely she is being affected, nobody could just give you the right potency.

If you are prescribing without being trained in homoeopathy, I would not use anything over 30c. It is too risky to be using the higher potencies.

The safest path to take is to give single doses, as a split dose, and wait 5-7 days before assessing and seeing if further doses are needed.

The whole process of choosing potency, observing changes and deciding on action after a remedy has been given is actually fairly complex. I could not give you all the possibilities here.


Firstly, you need to create a separate dosing bottle. Get a bottle with a dropper, 15-30mls in size, and fill it with a mixture of water and alcohol (5 parts to 1 part). Dissolve 2 granules or 2 drops of the medicine you bought from the pharmacy into this mixture. Your doses will be made from this bottle.

Hit the bottle firmly against the palm of your hand, or another elastic surface like a book. It should be a firm hit not a tap. 2 hits is enough to begin with, and should not be increased unless it is clear that it is needed. The water in this bottle will 'remember' the number of times you have hit it, so that subsequent doses will be stronger (necessary to overcoming the resistance of your disease).

Place 1 drop into an amount of water - I may start with anything from 1/4-1 full cup (62ml-250ml) depending on the sensitivity of the patient. Stir thoroughly and take 1 teaspoon into the mouth. Throw the rest of the cup away. Wash this cup and spoon in hot water, not detergent, and keep them aside to use for further doses.

This is one dose. Repeat doses would be started from the 2 hits on the bottle.

Each step of this process can be adjusted to reduced aggravation or to increase the effect of the medicine. In order to be able to do this, it is important to measure each step (count the hits, the drops, measure the water etc).
