Low Versus High Potency and Duration

Is it equivalent to take a dose of 6c potency everyday or take a 1M potency once every month?

I have read that for chronic conditions, that low potencies taken daily are more effective than high potencies taken daily, however, what is the comparision if the high potencies are taken every week or month instead of daily?

Any insight/perspective would be appreciated.

As I understand it, it is not a matter of one regime or the other. There is a correct regime for your situation. You want to take the minimum dose effective. Chronic conditions generally call for low potencies.

The higher the potency, the more important it is that you don't repeat it until it is time to do so. That will be based on how your cure is progressing rather than a strict timeline.

Also, you should not take a high potency unless you are very sure it is the right remedy.

This is contextualising homeopathy in the frame of orthodox medicine, where we are used to a prescription ...take x 3 times a day for a week etc .....

Homeopathy is a different system of medicine entirely and one must re-orient one's thinking about dosage because , after all, we are treating the individual and not the disease in most cases.

Work WITH the medicine in homeopathy - OBSERVE its actions, if any. Give the remedy its space to work within the parameters of the individual and his/her energy field. Don't NAG a dose as it is unravelling. Have patience.

Higher potencies require the 'fit' to be more precise, the remedy will not be more right by virtue of more doses.

Keep it simple.

This is the beauty of homeopathy.
