Potency comparison

I'm pretty new to homeopathy and would like to know: if 6C is somewhat equivalent in effective potency to LM1, is 12C close to LM2? I can't obtain LM potencies for the remedy I want. The client has improved somewhat on 200C and I want to start her on daily dosing. The remedy is a nosode and LM potencies for some reason are forbidden to be shipped to a US address. I don't know why, but some C potencies are available. Go figure.

What is the nosode?

Usually nosodes are never given frequently
Or in low potency and not daily.

Wicked foot, you are right by the guess--6c being somewhat equivalent to LM1. It's actually 5.5c.

From what you say, you are new to homeopathy and all, it does not seem a good idea to put your client on daily LM dosing of a nosode. It's not like one can't use nosodes in LM at all, but nosodes--the concept itself is advanced enough, and that too in LM would require good expertise and experience to keep a close eye on.

Even though the dilution levels correlate to increment of 5.5C, the actual power differs by a great deal. In power terms, after administering 30c, LM2 would be used, after administering 200c, LM5 would be used, after 1M---LM6, and after 10M and so on, the probable starting point would move further ahead to LM8. But strictly speaking there is no linear relationship between any two scales.
