    Is a remedy of a strength of 200 a very strong remedy as opposed to 6c, 30c or LM doses. For someone who is a bit sensitive would I aggravate much on a dose that high - is it safe? And what does a remedy that high do?

    Hi Janet,

    A lot of questions in a short post.... :)

    In a homeopathic sense yes. the number represents the number of times it's been diluted e.g. 6c is 600 times diluted, 30c = 3000 times diluted etc. the more diluted, the highter the potency (I know it seems backwards, but that's homeopathy).

    Who has prescribed a remedy of that high a dose? (typically if you buy a remedy from the high street shops it will be 6c or 30c but rarely higher) 200c or higher I would expect a trained homeopath to have given to you. Is it safe... well it depends what it is and wh you're picture is.

    High potentcy homeopathic remedies are given where there's a need to treat an acute condition, where the picture is very clear and the symptoms are strong (to put it in basic terms), but it does depend what the picture is and what is being treated. What it will do depends entirely on your picture. If it's too high a dose for what you are using it for, then you may 'prove' the remedy which means that you may exhibit symptoms relating to taking that remedy itself and then need something to counter those.

    Are you seeing a trained homeopath?

    All Love and Reiki Hugs

    Yes seeing someone who emailed me with what my remedy would be and normally I've been given either 6 or 30 c or an LM dose - never had 200 before so obviously I'm wary with never had before and at the moment due to work commitments I certainly can't afford to be ill or take wobblies.

    I've aggravated on the lower doses before and lost 3 days work that is why I ask.

    In that case you should speak to your homeopath, to confirm why 200 potency, as they are the one who knows your picture and the remedy they have provided.

    p.s. I've never heard of an LM potency before (I'm not a homeopath, but I'm friends with someone who is and I've used them myself). Are you sure it LM and not 1M potentcy? 1M is higher than 200c if I've got it right, so if you've had 1M before then 200c should be ok for you, though I'd still recommend speaking with your homeopath.

    200c I only asked because I wanted to know how strong etc. it would be and they prescribed I guess because it is a long standing problem. Still unsure as to how I'd react.

    And yes there are LM potencies - not 1M - LM's you can take every day - check them out - I find them good.

    Hello
    I have a little knowledge of Homoeopathy and i can tell the 200C are more suited for emotional or chronic issues. They are usually prescribed by an Homeopath as they need to fit the profile of the patient. The risk i guess is that it can bring to surface deeper issues and if not monitored or foreseen by a practitioner it can be quite serious( depending on emotional state of the patient).
    LM are much more gentle and usually are taken every day. It s just a different dilution. They usually don t cause aggravation and the results are slow but more profound.
    Saying that i think high potencies remedies need to be prescribed by a practitioner and under supervision. 6or30C are ok and reasonably safe for anyone to deal with acute complaint.

    Well if they're a proper homeopath then they will have offered you support so you can contact them if anything happens when you take the remedy and they can enhance your picture and treat as necessary.

    Mine is a chronic issue that's gone on a long time - it's not emotional. So Lele what can I expect when I take it - what would be the sort of aggravation from nux vom 200C - any ideas and how long lasting would they be - I can't afford to go down at the moment as I'm under a lot of pressure at work with boss on holiday for 5 weeks.

    I am not an expert bu t in my experience i'd say take one dose in the eve and one the following morning and wait for any change.
    Otherwise i wuold suggest to take it one dose a week until better or any change appear.
    This is from my experience with the remedy i was prescribed but in 200c i wouldn t take more often as the remedy work deeper.
    Hopefully we can have an opinion from an homeopath following the thread :)))

    Have you had a 200c remedy before. I've never had one that high before - I've had a 3 day aggravatoin where I lost 3 days work from a 6c remedy before so that is why I'm asking about the dose. I would have to try it on a Friday so anything bad would surely come out over the weekend.

    I have been on a 200C for a while now and for me is fine.
    Everyone is different and each remedies have different action. maybe is worthy taking one dose and wait for changes. That is the better strategy in my opinion.

    Yes I agree different remedies, different results. How often do you take your remedy and you had no reactions or if you did were they short lived. How quick did you see a difference?

    I have been taking few remedies in a course of months for a chronic IBS(more mental-emotional). Started with a dry remedy(pills) to move for a while to LM( slower action and no or controlled aggravation). Now, I am again on a dry remedy once a month for maintenance. I personally didn't have any aggravation but had the backing of my homeopath that monitored me and prepare to deal with any possible reaction.
    Check online for any antidote for Nux Vom in case you a have a strong aggravation even though I think, most of the time, aggravation are part of the healing process.

    I've had nux vom before in wet dose 6c and did aggravate for a bit but that was at the beginning. Find once it's introduced to my system sometimes I'm not too bad - it's just I can't afford to go down and be off at the moment as it once happened before and I lost 3 days work due to a bad aggravation because my boss is away on holiday for 5 weeks and I need to be in.

    I've got betaine hydrochloride to try for the bloating but I really have to pysche myself up to take it and most things take Friday nights so I've got weekend to recover.

    Just to chip in here with a few more comments.If the remedy prescriber is a qualified homeopath and has seen you in person and taken your case, then you need not be anxious about taking any remedy- 200c or not.If he isn't, probably best to see your homeopath.
    Much as people look for 'rules' to homeopathy, each remedy is given on an individual basis. 200c may be 'high' for someone at one time and not another, and for one person and not another. You are matching energy frequency and that is ascertained at a specific time for a specific person. So for example, I could easily take a 6c remedy today for something and need a 200c for something else in a year's time. The way the potency is determined is detailed and complex, hence the lengthy training for a homeopath. I know we all like to see things in black and white at times- and you often read lots of weird and wonderful information about homeopathic potencies- often from those who don't really have the skills to comment but there just isn't a blanket rule for everyone, I'm afraid.

    Thank you Hom.
    Even though i read about and have a passion for Homoeopathy that doesn t go beyond a little knowledge of what an homeopath goes through with 3-4 years training and have come to value that. One day I might be part o your team as well.
    Everyone can experiment treating acute complaints and very often successfully but when it come to chronic, long standing issues i would definately consult a specialist( like I did).
    Indeed, for a correct prescriiption, there are far too many factors involved and i very difficult to do it without taking the full case.
    Janet: have you try Bach's remedies? They are very good on releasing deep seated emotion and they can be easier to self prescribed , for the time being, until you have more resources to consult an homeopath.
    Cheers

    Hi - I did try a detox flower remedy but my problem is stomach bloating so not sure where I would start to look on these. If you have any suggestions I'd be grateful.

    I'm doing it online with the homeopath but I do wonder should I go see someone!

    200c

    Hi,
    The idea of a strong or weak potency in homoeopathy - I've noticed that it's spelled wrong in the forum listing....is erroneous.
    A 6c can have a very strong effect upon the physical body as the potency has quite a raw energy. A 200c can actually have a much gentler and more spiritual effect than a 30c. Never be frightened of a higher numbered dose. I've used and taken 10M potencies and often found them to be very deep yet gentle. Your homoeopath will have given you the potency that suits your energy and the energy of your problem. Sometimes it can be the right remedy but it is needed in a more raw dosage and sometimes in a more spiritual dosage. At the end of the day the wrong dosage won't hurt. I've never seen a high potency create a proving situation - where the patient has proved the remedy. This can happen at any potency.

    Hope that clears things up. Another lovely thing to do is to ask the remedy to work for your highest good as you take it. It helps your body and soul respond to the remedy.
    Kindest regards,
    Christina

    Homoeopathy is actually a variant of the more common spelling, homeopathy. Neither is incorrect. The variant comes from the latin form of the word which is spelled
    with an o & e ligature - homœopathy.

    I'm a pedant, I know :)
