Repeating a dose -
Kent's ladder of potencies
You administer the different potencies, repeating the
same potency until it does not act any longer, and then
going higher, until you have gone through the whole
range of potencies.
You can repeat that remedy many times on a paucity of
symptoms, when you cannot give another remedy, simply
because it has demonstrated itself to be the patient's
This remedy should not be changed so long as the
curative action can be maintained.
Even if the symptoms have been changed do not change the
remedy, provided the patient has continuously improved.
It is a rule after you have gone through a series of
potencies, never to leave that remedy until one more
dose of a higher potency has been given and tested.
But when this dose of a higher potency has been given
and tested, without effect, that is the only means you
have of knowing that this remedy has done all the good
it can for this patient and that a change is necessary.
