Creating Waves of Awareness
The greatest dilemma of Hahnemann was the dose of medicine, in order to avoid the medicinal aggravation. So for that he tried different potencies and methods and arrived on his perfect method of LM potency diluted in water and by olfaction.
The health is a condition of balance or equilibrium of our vital force and the disease (miasms)
When the disease force becomes stronger the vital force becomes weak.
In that condition something is necessary to keep the vital force and the disease in a balance. As homoeopaths we can use our medicines. We should give only sufficient medicinal energy to keep the equilibrium, not so much and not so less.
It can be explain by an example.
Suppose the gold ores, the crude form of gold like the mother tincture of a remedy. There is a huge quantity of material but there is not so much value for that quantity.
We can reduce the quantity of material and increase the value by filtering and purifying the ores just like how we dynamise the mother tincture to lower potencies.
We can obtain pure and precious gold bars of different weights, by more purification of the ores of gold. This is same like higher potencies of 30,200, M, XM CM etc.
The LM potencies are like small gold coins, easy to use but valuable.
If we are able to measure the disease force, the vital force and the medicinal force, then it is easy to correct the disequilibrium of our patients.
We should keep the balance by giving correct dose without oscillating so much .That is the art and the science of posology in homoeopathy.
“Similia similibus curantur” is not only valued for the selection of medicine but also for the selection of potency.
If you give only mother tincture and lower potencies in a chronic case you can obtain only some partial cure for a short period. You cannot correct the disequilibrium. Much quantity and practically nothing valuable - like crude ores of gold.
If you give higher potencies frequently and for a long period, then you will damage the patient, just like putting the Gold Bars of 1 Kg, 10 Kg etc .daily on the plate of the balance and damage system of balance itself.
You can correct the disequilibrium if you use LM potencies in the correct way just like putting small gold coins one after another on the plate of the balance until both sides become in equilibrium without oscillation. For that you need patience and good eyes to observe.
