Frequency of use for different potencies

In a acute case how frequently must i use a 30c potency or 200c or a higher potency?
In a normal case how frequently must i use a 30c potency or 200c or a higher potency?
In chronic diseases how frequently must i use a 30c potency 200c or a higher potency?


The potency and repetition of dose is dependent on a number of factors, including the patient’s age, sensitivity, vitality and response to the previous dose. The potency must match the intensity of the symptoms, so that acutes generally require higher doses. Each case is different and must be judged accordingly. Learning to watch and wait in chronic cases is one of the most important lessons. Do not repeat as long as progress continues.
