Sir, she's mistakenly thinking that our odd symbol for tinctures -- a zero with a slash mark through it -- refers to Q-potencies because she's used to calling them LM potencies. Hahnemannians don't use the term LM potencies because it's a misnomer given that it means a 50M potency. These are correctly called Q-potencies because it's a scale of 1:50,000, and they're thus qinquaginta-millessimal potencies.
The gist of the advantages are that they can be daily repeated. It's a long subject to explain any of this, but it's also important to know that no pharmacy accurately makes Q-potencies because none of the morons bothers to make the correctly sized microglobules required for their manufacture. Specifically, one globule rather than one drop is used in the ascending potenices on the Q scale, so they're never going to be correct until someone does. It's a small detail that we abhore as a manifestation of carelessness so typical of our supposedly professional pharmacists from the beginning -- the morons. Fortunately, it doesn't adversely affect their great benefit of daily use, which also requires that patients follow the directions to dilute each globule in a glass of water, stir and take a spoonful. It also gets really complicated from here, for two natural laws involving doseage fall out of the fabric of space as part of the four-part Law of Therapeutics.
This is all explained in the ORGANON OF MEDICINE. Fact cometh: Everyone should read the ORGANON until they understand it, but most people obviously prefer being ignorant, servile, complacent, selfish, brainwashed and brain damaged or they wouldn't think allopathically their entire lives. We can't change that, and all of the evidence indicates that we shouldn't if we want Christ's Kingdom of God on Earth to form on schedule. Such is life.
Unfortunately, it's unlikely that your homeopath knows any of this stuff since most today are just followers of George Vithoulkas (who only claim to be classical homeopaths) rather than actual Hahnemannians. It's tragic, but it's always been like this and will be for the foreseeable future since almost nobody actually thinks homeopathically and almost everyone only thinks allopathically. It's gets them agonal, horrendously horrible and premature iatrogenic ("physician-induced") deaths in allopathic hands, but that seems to be the destiny for almost all 6 & 1/2 billion people presently alive and another 5 & 1/2 billion low-grade discarnant human beings waiting to also live their last lifetimes. Again, we can't change this; nor should we.
Thank you all very much for the kind replies to my question. I am honored to have such excellent experience as yours on my side.
Hahnemannian444 and Hans Weitbrecht,
I have spent hours reading many of your posts. Thank you for your mentoring. Although I have never met you, your knowledge has been very influential to me.
The homeopath I am working with has his own pharmacy and makes the q potencies as described in the Organon. He has also made remedies from vaccines. He treated me with a tetanus vaccine and I stopped clenching my jaw at night. I am taking q potencies of silicea and am having amazing results, I never thought I would be this content and happy with life. Thank you Hahnemann!
I want to be a true homeopath and help heal people. I will study the translation of the organon as stated by Hahnemannian444 until I die.
"It is often claimed in expert literature that Q and LM-potencies are identical, which is absolutely wrong for several reasons:
"1. For the preparation of an LM-potency according to the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoea 2006 HV 17, no fresh-plant trituration is used but [instead] an alcoholic extract in the form of a mother tincture, which is the most important difference.
"2. The trituration of liquid substances in the case of the C3-trit does not follow the principles of Hahnemann. There is no real trituration, the substances are simply mixed and dried."
I don't know if that's true in the U.S., but it wouldn't surprise me since our pharmacists are and always have been infuriating to us.
A mother tincture is a solution of a botanical substance and alcohol made according to standards set by the HPUS (Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States).
Depending on the properties of the substance, a mother tincture is either a 1x or a 2x (1c) potency.
All higher potencies are derived from the mother tincture.
Symbol used: "Q" and or often 0 with a crossbar/
LM potency is an entirely different subject

Dear, I didn't think you were capable of making that mistake, and I was only attempting to cover you if it was a mistake, but I still don't know why you said, "Q-potency is a Mother tinc.," because it's not. Those are potencies.
Yeah, Q1, Q2, Q3, etc., and 0/1, 0/2, 0/3, etc. Don't be angry with me. I simply don't want people to be confused by this stuff, and the way you said it could be misinterpreted to cause people to envision a zero with a slash through it, which designates a tincture.
For 31 years, it was always the same designation to me before Hans pointed out what he did. I generally found the British and Indians using the LM designation, and that was the extent of it. How is it a different subject, sweetie?
I really hope that I don't bore anyone, but I've found something else:
"To avoid confusion it needs to be pointed out that the terminology
around the 50 millesimal potencies has remained inconsistent.
It varies depending on the manufacturer, for historical
reasons, with some producers using the abbreviation ‘Q’ and
others the original name ‘LM-potencies’. The official German
pharmacopoeia Homöopathisches Arzneibuch (HAB) allows both
names and only makes sure that the manufacturing specifications
are consistent. The term ‘Q-potency’ (from Lat. quinquaginta
milia = 50,000) that is commonly used today traces back to
Jost Künzli von Fimmelsberg (1915–1992). Rudolf Flury
(1903–1977), who rediscovered Hahnemann’s 50 millesimal potencies
preferred the abbreviation ‘LM’ (from the Roman numerals
L for 50 and M for 1,000). ARCANA Dr Sewerin GmbH & Co
KG and other manufacturers therefore follow a tradition if they
use this name.
In the interest of consistency we use ‘Q-potencies’ or ‘50 millesimal
potencies’ in the following text (apart from in quotations)."
