  • Thank you Dr. Gupta for your case of fibroid and renal calculus. It demonstrates the highest level of skill from years of experience.

  • good thanks i have also solved many cases of fibroids in this manner and you have proved it how homoeopathy works

  • sir, a nice example … thanks for sharing the experience. I was just wondering about the dose ‘Pulse 30′ single dose once a week … is it not to less frequent. In another similar case quoted here, Cal Sulph’ was identified…but given in LM potencies in ascending order LM1 TO LM4 where the issue was resolved …. cud u please explain the idea behind so low doses !!

    • The idea behind such low doses is that pathology may be resolved with 30 potency also, as has been proven in the presented case. It is a misconception that 30 potency is low dose. The terms ‘low’ or ‘high’ are relative. In comparison to 200 or 1000, 30 may seem low, but when compared to 1x, 3x, 6x and so on it is much higher.

      As for other case you mentioned where LM potency was prescribed, the potencies and scales are tools and just a matter of preference and comfort zone of a physician.

      There are many physicians like you who are confused regarding potency because they think that there must be only one BEST scale and potency to use and want to know which is it? However, as mentioned earlier and as proven by case presented by us and the one mentioned by you, a disease may be treated with CM as well as LM potency.
