A review on history of LM potency: Tracing its roots in the past
Author(s): Dr. Renu Bala and Dr. Amit Srivastava
Abstract: Dr. CFS Hahnemann until the end of his life continued to refine his clinical methods. In order to discover his most perfected method, he was motivated to write the sixth edition of Organon in which he introduced new dynamic process today named as 50 millesimal (LM or Q). It was the solution to the aggravations he had observed with centesimal scale but due to delayed publishing of 6th edition, the benefits of this scale remained hidden and were not accepted and practiced worldwide. Hahnemann himself used exclusively, ‘medicament au globule’ of 150 most important homoeopathic remedies in 10 lowest degree of dilutions and preferred in his later years of life. This is an attempt to explore and bring forward the hidden treasure of 50 millesimal potency, its history and experiences of various authors. For this, books, journals and available literatures were reviewed exhaustively.
