This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
some of the mother tinctures when taken in excessive quantity and repeated frequently may start proving.I think that is what they wanted to say.

Any medicine, including in potencies,taken execssively lead to problems.All homeopathic materia medica suggest mother tinctures.Then why this special mention-"taking mother tinctures can lead to serious side effects"?
I would welcome some discussion on this issue amongst all paractioners.

My understanding is that mother tinctures and the low potencies, say up to 6C address the disease/s at the organ level or physiological level.One can prescribe more confidently if one is sure of the physical symptoms as well as has some idea of the organopathic/metabolic level at which the symptoms are arising.Giving these in excess may lead to proving symptoms.

The higher potencies, specialy 200C and beyond should be prescribed after taking the mental/emotional/peculiar symptoms into account.Merely matching of ordinary physical symptoms will not do.

I have used "mother" tinctures of Arborivital preperations .

In this case the PROPER dose is a SINGLE drop .

Dr Cooper cured cancer with Arborivital remedies - which he pioneered .

I can vouch for the effect as a SINGLE DROP of Arborivital Agraphis Nutans cured a progressive deafness that was starting to affect my rt ear.

I myself have had a lot of success in the cases of headaches or migraines that are of bilious origin with Chionanthus Q.In these cases, irrespective of the individual variations in symptoms of different patients, as long as you are sure of malfunctioning liver as the source of the biliousness, you can prescribe this remedy with assured success in either curing the case or reducing the trouble significantly.

However you would need to couple it with miasmatic/constitutional treatment to root out the vital (energy level) source of the disease.I personally conceive of the MTs and potencies up to 6C as working at physiological level an those above 30C at the energy level.Hence if i use more than one remedy in the case of a given patient, i use the lower potency for the organopathic level and the higher potency to match the constitution.This approach helps to reduce the time taken to cure a case almost by half.

With regards.

Hi all,

It is certainly true that not all remedies taken in mother tincture form would be dangerous, but there are those that would. For example, Arsenicum Album (arsenic oxide) or Belladonna (deadly nightshade) could be fatal, even in a small amount.

I'm sure nobody here would prescribe those particular mother tinctures, but as anybody can suggest remedies on this board, we do need to warn people.

Best Wishes,
