Sir,do you have any rule about choosing of correct potency for patient?


Hi Arshad,

Potency selection depends upon many factors like sensitivity of the patient, curability of the case, Type of case (acute/chronic), Source of medicine etc. There are no fixed rules for potency selection. It is a matter of case by case analysis. You may find some so-called rules written in some books but you can not be rigid about them. They do not always hold their ground and exceptions to these rules are not rare. A homeopaths school of education, clinical experience, the scales he/she uses etc. also lend an individual touch to the process of remedy selection.

Best wishes,
Dr. B
