Dose adjustments according to sensitivity
- Use 1 #10 pellet for the average person ideally, the #10 poppy-seed size pellet should be used. Unit doses from Dolisos Pharmacy are #20 and multidose tubes are #40, more is not better! You may crush a pellet in clean white paper and take a portion. The quantity of pellets taken as a dose does affect the intensity of a remedy. This is a different philosophy than believing 1 pellet is the same as 15 pellets.
