The Advanced Water Dosing Methods

Why Water Dosing Is More Effective
I have seen
water dosing bring gentle, steady results very effectively time and time again,
in both acute and chronic cases.
I have used water dosing
exclusively both a user of homeopathy personally for many years, on my extended
family and friends circle, and in my own full time classical homeopathy private practice.
I have experienced it as a beautiful solution in complex chronic cases (like
autism) and all those
cases with pathology, or cases that have been harmed by allopathic suppression,
vaccinations and/or those have significant gut dysbiosis or any autoimmune
related diseases. These types of cases often do not have the Vital Force
(VF) strength to handle dry potencies, making water dosing essential to their
long term gentle recovery and success.
This is why I use advanced water dosing exclusively.
The speed of recovery, the ability to adapt the dose to the individual case
- both in acute and chronic care - is significantly improved with water dosing.
I follow the 5th Organon method for dosing split dose C potencies in
water and the 6th Organon method for dosing LM potencies in water.
Both methods are described in detail in Hahnemann's Organon.
Case Management and Water Dosing
Some homeopaths prefer dry dosing because in practice, the water dosing methods
will of course take more case management time by the homeopath - sometimes
on a daily basis. During a test dose period on a new remedy, in my practice, I
stay in close contact during the first seven (7) days for each client.
Until the remedy response has been established, I stay in touch weekly.
Then a minimum of once monthly as long as improvements are noted in the case. The
water dosing method requires an effective written communication relationship with
a homeopath. It also requires a convenient system of set test dose
and follow up questions to be answered for each case, in order to do so efficiently.
About A Remedy Aggravation?
By true definition, there is always a
(hopefully barely noticeable) aggravation on any remedy because the Vital
Force (VF) must have
a secondary reaction to the primary action of the homeopathic medicine - even in
water dosing. But the central idea in the water dosing method is that it be
mild that it is under the radar of discomfort, and that any
mental/emotional or physical aggravations are very tolerable. Then. as the
remedy acts, the improvements from the dosing are steady and
will build up over time with each the increasing succussions. In this way, each subsequent
dose helps the VF move gently forward to cure within.
Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy in the 5th/6th edition of the
Organon teaches very specifically that the remedy
MUST be altered, that we must not repeat the same dose, in the same potency
more than one time. He teaches that it is dangerous to do so and
jeopardizes the success of the case. The simplest way to change the
potency of a remedy dose in water is by making succussions to the
remedy supply bottle. A succussion is simply a hard WHACK to the remedy
bottle prior to dosing, from a distance of about 2 feet onto a leather bound
book or the palm of the hand. In my practice, four (4) succussions are the
standard I prefer and use. Succussions are done to the remedy bottle
before all doses after the first one. Succussions will slightly
increase the remedy's potency and result in a more rapid, gentle cure.
My Prescribing Method
The simillimum that cures a
case is not just the right remedy, but also the right potency
and the right dose - given at the right dosing schedule.
This is essentially why
the journey to recovery with homeopathy can be so complicated! The
curative remedy I believe must reflect the
miasm that is also observable in a
person's facial features. I am trained in the
Homeopathic Facial Analysis method
which is one of several case analysis methods I use per case
to help me accurately determine the
active miasm for each
I use the analogy in my practice
that a good homeopath is like a "personal
fitness coach" - one who starts each client on their own unique plan, starting
with lighter weights (water dosing), slowly increasing repetitions (succussions
prior to the dose), on a manageable workout schedule (repeating dosing when it's
needed, not too soon). So that slowly and steadily over time, we sculpt the muscle
(the VF) into a healthy, strong champion....and this means recovery from disease.
