Hi pixie-
if you click on brisbanes name on
a post - you can then see his profile
and then click on all his posts.

When you do that you will see he has
given instructions on split dose etc
800 times. The info is in every case
he does.

I was going to do this but was worried incase he slightly changed it for some people. on my sons it said add 2 pills to water so i guess 2 200c pilules in water will still be 200c strength. i was a little worried do i add 1 or 2 to water i do not want to mess this up.
Thanks Simone

Just add the 2 pills to the water for
a dose. let them dissolve and follow
whatever he said, take tsp out or put
a tsp. in another cup and take a tsp

Different people do doses different.
some people say 2 pills, some say
4 pills, some say 6 pills.

2 pills is what he is calling a dose.
then transferring a tsp into another
cup is for trying to cut down on

i don't suppose you know if white rum is ok to use for the alcohol it's all i have?

Yes white rum is ok- that is what
I have here and have used it.

ok a dose - is 2 -4 -6 pills in a cup
of water, or some use 1/4 cup of water.

that is a dose.

A split dose is then taking a tsp out
of the dose cup and putting it into
another cup, and then taking the tsp
out of that second cup.

I am sorry, I thought I had given you instructions for one of your children when I prescribed for them.


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).

For most first time prescriptions I will ask someone to place that drop in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water.

I only get people to add the pillules directly to the cup of water in acute situations where there is some urgency to get the dose administered. You should never do this for standard (chronic) dosing.

Split dosing is the method outlined in our Organon of Medicine, as is the safest most effective way to have our medicines work sucessfully.

Any spiritous alcohol is ok, as long as it doesn't have anything aromatic in it, or milk or cream.
