What Homeopathic potency should I take?
By Gina Tyler DHOM. 1998

There is a difference in the action of the various potencies of homeopathic remedies. Some of the higher potencies are best left to the experienced

In reality the entire series of potency needs to be used by
only those that do their homework first. (Before taking anything) If one
confines himself to only the low potency's ( 3x,6x,9x,3c,6c,9c ) he is
limiting himself.

It is unreasonable to expect to handle all problems with one or two
potencies. The selection of the correct potency is just as important as the
remedy itself. The remedy will fail if the wrong potency is used.


The entire series of potency has been compared to the music scales. Guernsey said "A skillful artist may construct a harmony with various vibrations of the same cord but by the use of a proper combination of all sounds a more beautiful and perfect harmony might be constructed ".

To explain; any illness may be tackled by any potency but when the correct indicated potency is administered the cure may be accelerated and permanent.


Mother tincture, 1x, 3x, 3c, 6x, 6c, 9x, 9c, 12x, 12c,30c, 200c, 1m, 10m, 50m,CM, LM

When starting a remedy we must use first the lowest potency, then work our way up, jumping on each note. Like in music-
gradually going up the harmonious scale.


1 the susceptibility of the person
2 the seat of the disease (mind, emotion, physical)
3 the nature and intensity of the disease
4 the stage and duration of the disease
5 the previous treatments
6 the age of a person
7 the constitution and temperament of a person
8 the habits of a person
9 the pathological conditions

When it comes to emotions and mind symptoms the high potency is effective, and lower used for physical symptoms, like sore muscles, bruising, acute injuries. Medium for the organs.

Provided that the selection of the remedy is Homeopathically correct the law of the least action appears to be an essential compliment to the homeopathic law of Similars. Meaning the potencies are diluted so making the remedies "act" different than herbs in their physical form.

By the homeopathic practice of "dilution" even substances that are normally harmful like belladonna are rendered harmless and are transformed into healing remedies. Crude minerals that are inactive become active and effective for healing the ill. By reducing the "strength" of the Material Mass, by dilution and potentisation you end up with a substance with an increased curative power, setting free the powers previously latent.

HOMEOPATHIC POTENTIATION is a physical process by which the dynamic energy latent in crude substances is liberated, developed and modified for use as medicine, and depriving it of its destructive or toxic actions.

Comments are made by allopathic doctors that the remedies are so diluted that your left with only sugar pills. THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG. There are things beyond our senses, I am talking about energy (dynamic energy) the Chinese call it CHI, the Hindus call it PRANA, homeopaths call it the VITAL FORCE. Inherited in all living things. From this concept stems the dynamic theory of disease, "Hahnemann said that disease is a dynamically disturbance of the vital principal". (Vital force)
