HOMEOPATHIC LM POTENCIES

Mother tincture = alcohol extract of a soluble substance not potentized. Usually stored in 87% to 100% alcohol.
Liquid stock bottle = potentized remedy in solution (i.e.sulphur 12c) preserved with 87% - 100% alcohol.
Remedy solution bottle = 1 pellet (#10) poppy seed size, of a lm potency or c potency is put in 4oz. Of water + 2 to 3 teaspoons of 90-95% ethyl alcohol (Everclear). Succuss this bottle 8-10 times before taking out each dose (1-3 teaspoons ) to put in the dosage cup.
Dosage cup = a 4oz. Cup of distilled water with 1 - 3 teaspoons from the remedy solution bottle. Stir vigorously, take 1 teaspoon as 1 dose.
Succussion = to hit against a resilient object such as a leather bound book or the palm of your hand.
Triturate = grind in a mortar and pestle.


POTENCY SYMBOLS

LM = 1:50,000 ( 50 millesimal scale ) also written as LM/1, LM/2, 0/1, 0/2, OR Q1, Q2, etc.
X = 1:10 ( decimal scale ) also written as D in Europe.
C = 1:100 ( centesimal scale ) also written as CH in Europe.
1M = 1,000 C ( centesimal scale )
10M = 10,000 C ( centesimal scale )
50M = 50,000 C ( centesimal scale )
CM = 100,000 C ( centesimal scale )


HOW TO MAKE A 3C TRITURATION

1 grain of plant, mineral, metal, etc., + 100 grains of milk sugar and triturated for 1 hour = 1c potency
(trituration is done in three stages of twenty minutes each see the Organon paragraph 270 and footnote # 150)
1 grain of 1c + 100 grains of milk sugar + triturated for 1 hour = 2c potency
1 grain of 2c + 100 grains of milk sugar + triturated for 1 hour = 3c potency


HOW TO MAKE AN LM POTENCY FROM A 3C TRITURATION

1 grain of 3c potency diluted in 500 drops (100 drops alcohol and 400 drops water) = lm/o (see the Organon paragraph 270)
1 drop of LM/0 + 100 drops of alcohol + 100 succussions = LM/1 potency

 

               1 drop of LM/1 is put on 500 granules of milk sugar (#10 pellets)

 

1 granule of LM/1 dissolved in one drop of water + 100 drops of alcohol + 100 succussions = LM/2 potency

 

              1 drop of LM/2 is put on 500 granules of milk sugar (#10 pellets)

 

1 granule of LM/2 dissolved in one drop of water + 100 drops of alcohol + 100 succussions = LM/3 potency (continue this process up to the LM/30 potency)
