Potency and Dose in Homeopathy

Homeopathic Dose

In homeopathy, one dose means one thing: a tablet, pilule, or a few drops. Taking more, like two tablets, doesn’t make it more effective. Stick to one—it’s the essence that matters, not the quantity. Two tablets will have the same effect as one tablet

Only give one remedy at a time – a golden rule in Classical Prescribed Homeopathy. Please do not give two remedies at the same time.



In homeopathy, remedies are made through a process called potentization. It includes diluting a substance with water or alcohol and shaking it vigorously, repeated multiple times. The centesimal (C) scale involves diluting by a factor of 1:100 at each step (e.g., 1C is 1 part substance to 99 parts dilution). The decimal (X) scale dilutes by a factor of 1:10 at each step (e.g., 1X is 1 part substance to 9 parts dilution). Higher potencies follow the same pattern.

In acute situations, we often use 30C or 200C potencies for at-home treatment. 30C is low-potency, effective for mild, physical symptoms, and suitable when unsure about the remedy. 200C is high-potency, ideal for intense situations, addressing both physical and emotional aspects. Choose 200C with certainty or if lower potencies haven’t led to recovery. Do not self – prescribe potencies such as 1M or higher.


Repeating the dose  – this depends on each case. For an acute statements we repeat more often than in a chronic and we use potency like 15C, 30C or 200C. More about and chronic condition here 

The basic rules for acute are:

  • Give one well-chosen remedy – Wait and see what happens, If nothing happens – repeat in one hour. If it is a right remedy your body need more support.
  • If something changes – Wait patiently.
  • If symptoms begin to improve – Wait. No need to repeat the dose.
  • If symptoms return – give a second dose.
  • If new symptoms show then take the case again and check which remedy should be given.
  • If after three doses symptoms are not improved – retake the case and find another remedy to match the symptoms.
  • If symptoms improve but then keep returning consult a homeopath. You will need help to identify the obstacle that is preventing cure.
