Single Dose Prescription OR Multi Dose Prescription???
Concept of Dosage in Homeopathy has always been dilemma. Which is right Single Dose prescription or Multi Dose Prescription??????? ...

Ever since we were students we have met homeopaths (both teachers and practitioners) who have their personal views on Using Potency and Dosage in Homeopaths. Some believe in giving single dose of 30 potency while some prescribe repeated doses of 10M, CM etc. They teach their philosophy leaving the student in a tug-of-war. Which is the right method of prescription? Has Dr.Hahnemann advised Single Dosage or Multiple Doses?

Re: Single Dose Prescription OR Multi Dose Prescription???

Hi, ya this dosage dilemma can be very confusing especially for newcomers; many persons prefer high and some low potency; but you need not worry; starters should only stick to Hahnemannian view, it is later by practice and experience that you understand which case should be dealt with which potency. so firstly go through Hahnemann's Organon and practice accordingly

good luck

Re: Re: Single Dose Prescription OR Multi Dose Prescription???

hi there, has anyone read somewhere Dr.Hahnemann's views on multimedicine? i have never read myself. Dr. Hahnemann always talked about minimum dosage and that too of SIMPLE SUBSTANCE that readily counts for single remedy. So dear friends go for SIngle medicine itself.

Re: Re: Re: Single Dose Prescription OR Multi Dose Prescription???

Hi,

That is an excellent question but it is answered in the Organon by Dr. Hahnemann.  The Organon went through six different revisions from 1810 to 1843.  Dr. Hahnemann kept perfecting his original work.  The reason there are differences in homeopathy because we practice by different versions of the Organon.  Many homeopaths practice according to the principles of the 4th edition of the Organon.  The last version of the Organon the 6th edition was actually not published until 1920 and Boericke's English translation appeared a year later in 1921.  Each version of the Organon was based on Hahnemann's practice and constant research.  Dr Hahnemann was constantly trying new methods and replacing earlier ones in his tireless search in an effort to provide the "rapid, gentle and permanent cure for his patients". 

In 1828 the 4th edition was published and this was when Dr. Hahnemann introduced the single dose of one poppyseed.  The 5th Edition was published in 1833 and this is where Hahnemann introduced and supported the use of High Potencies.  Also in the 5th edition Hahnemann introduced frequent repetition of the remedy and administration of solutions in water instead of the single dry dose as in the 4th edition. 

Now lastly in the 6th edition Hahnemann rejected everything he had written in the 5th edition.  Hahnemann devoted the last 12 years of his life in perfecting  his original method.  The 6th Edition is where he introduces the LM potencies.  In a footnote to Aphorism 246 of the 6th Edition Hahnemann explained that with each edition of his book he presented the best method that he knew at the time.  However, after relentless research and experimentation in his own practice he revised earlier methods.

Hahnemann always gave one remedy at a time.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Single Dose Prescription OR Multi Dose Prescription???

In chronic and acute conditions I always prescribe remedies in watery doses (multi dose treatments).  When the remedies are dissolvedin water it reaches more never endings faster and they are absorbed and utilized by the body more easily.  When I say one remedy at a time.  I have not had the need to give 2 different remedies in alternation etc.  For example if I have an acute case with flu-like symptoms and diarrhea requiring Arsenicum Album.  Usually if the person is not extremely sensitive I will start with 200cc potency of Arsenicum Album.  However, I only take one pellet and dissolve it in 4 oz of water.  I then tell the client to succuss 8 time (which means to pound the remedy in the palm of hand or on a hard surface or book etc.) and then to take one teaspoon from the remedy solution bottle.  I may ask them to do this every 2 hours for 3 days while awake or until symptoms subside.  This method is of course in the 5th and 6th editions of the Organon.  It is extremely effective.  I have not had to use 2 remedies in alternation for example Arsenicum Album and another remedy.  Once the symptom picture completely changes then you would stop the Arsenicum Album and then start new remedy.  So when I say one remedy at a time I am not referring to multidoses of the same remedy but alternations of 2 completely different remedies.  If you have got the correct homeopathic prescription and strength there is not need to alternate 2 different remedies as the one will completely do the trick.  If it does not that means the prescription is wrong and not based on the totality of symptoms or if you are sure you have the right remedy then the potency and strength is not adequate.

I wish I could take credit for the wonderful wealth of knowledge but alas I cannot.  Dr Luc Deschepper has a wonderful book called Hahnemann Revisited where he gives great insight as to Hahnamann's works and also how to prescribe, what to prescribe and how often to prescribe along with tons of other helpful information.  Please take a look at this book.  It helped me tremendously.

 

Warm Regards,

Kelly Rodriguez
