The Opposite Action Of High And Low Potencies


This Post invites homoeopaths to share knowledge and clinical experiences of remedies that showed opposite action of High and Low Potencies.  A few such examples are shared here as starters...

Here the case of digitalis is very interesting and should find great use in clinical situation:

  1. In typical Calcarea Carb children, it would cure diarrhea only in high (200, 1M) potencies but could cure constipation only in 6th potency (Source: Dr.Koppikar’s Clinical Experiences of 70 years in homoeopathy) 
  2. Podophyllum high cured diarrhea and was a fine remedy for constipation with whitish (bileless) stools in 6th potency. (Source: Dr.Koppikar’s Clinical Experiences of 70 years in homoeopathy)
  3. With Iodium 200, 1000, I have added weight to lean and even emaciated boys and girls.  And Iodium 2x, 3x are the best remedies to help reducing obesity – given 3-4 pills 3 times daily. Of course, these patients are given the usual indicated high potencies of their constitutional remedies. (Source: Dr.Koppikar’s Clinical Experiences of 70 years in homoeopathy)
  4. People having weakness, dizziness on sitting up or jaundice etc. of Digitalis have been wonderfully cured by Digitalis high, 30 or 200 when the pulse was slow, and by 3x or 3 or even 6th when the pulse rate was fast. (Source: Dr.Koppikar’s Clinical Experiences of 70 years in homoeopathy)
  5. Hepar Sulph: The higher potencies may abort suppuration, the lower promote it. If it is necessary to hasten it, give 2x. by William Boericke 
  6. Mercurius too low, will hasten suppuration instead of aborting it – E.B.Nash
