Homeopathy is one of the oldest and most widespread methods of alternative healing. In it you will find very precise remedies for practically any condition that human body can be in and a proper set of homeopathic remedies is the most potent weapon you can use.
Whatever your problem that was leading you towards hysterectomy, homeopathy has remedies that can help. If you have fibroids in uterus, there is a well defined sequence of homeopathical remedies that can help you get rid of them. More than one third of all hysterectomies is because of the fibroids, some 175,000 per year in the USA only! Chances are that more than 80% of all these 175,000 cases could have been saved with some kind of energy healing, especially if that method would have been homeopathy.
There are two main ways homeopathy could help you. In classical homeopathy, you would be given one and only one remedy that encompasses all or practically all of your symptoms, including those in the uterus or ovaries. The other method is to find a mixture of remedies, each of which would do a part of the job, towards the end of result of, say, getting rid off of the myomata.
The Constitutional Remedy
In classical homeopathy, the central notion is that of constitutional remedy. It is the remedy that deep down, fundamentally, is like you. It is the energy essence of your being. If you can find it, the results may be spectacular: the cancer retreats, chronic illnesses disappear… If this is so, then why is there any other kind of medicine, how come homeopathy didn’t win by a long shot? The truth is simple: it is very difficult to find the true homeopathic remedy. It takes time, devotion, lots of knowledge, sometimes luck. Finding a constitutional remedy is a homeopathical equivalent of searching for the Holly Grail! To illustrate the problems, suppose you take the role of a homeopathic practitioner and that a woman with heavy metrorrhagia caused by the presence of uterine fibroids is in front of you. You know that three remedies — Calcarea Carbonica, Phosphorus, and Sulphur — best correspond to that state. You know all their symptoms by heart:
Mental symptoms: fear of povery, illness, death; sometimes productive, sometimes lazy; fear of the dark and ghosts; dislike of small spaces, thunderstorms, mice; discusses every detail of each illness to a too great a detail. Physical symptoms: sensitive to cold; often tired and anxious; excessive, sour-smelling sweat, say, after a light exertion; constipated, but feels better for it; metrorrhagia (heavy bleeding) because of uterine fibroids .
Personality type: shy, quiet, sensitive; when well, may work very hard; when ill, slightly depressed; tends to be overweight; prefers sweet, sour, and starchy foods, cold drinks, oysters; dislike coffee and milk; unusual craving, such as for chalk.
Now here’s the second of the three remedies:
Mental symptoms: mentally allert; nervous under pressure; indiferrent to family and friends when ill; fear illness and death. Physical symptoms: problems with digestive organs, circulation, nervous system, the left side of the body, liver; bleeding, such as nosebleeding; metrorrhagia (heavy bleeding) because of uterine fibroids; respiratory problems; headaches.
Personality type: well proportioned, tall, and lean; fine or dark hair, with reddish finge; pale skin, blush easily; intelligent, outgoing, artistic, dresses with taste; open and affectionate; sometimes enthusiastic; not only afraid but paralysed from thunderstorms; prefers spicy, salty, sweet foods, carbonated drinks, cheese and wine, but dislike fruit, fish, and tomatoes.
Finally, here is a partial description of
Mental symptoms: selfishness, egotism; argumentativeness, agressiveness; fear of ghosts, height, failure; lethargic depression; full of bright ideas which fade away. Physical symptoms: burning, itching sensations; inflammation of the affected part; offensive oddors; metrorrhagia (heavy bleeding) because of uterine fibroids; thirstiness; weak areas are left side of the body, circulation, digestive organs, skin.
Personality type: either round and red-faced or lanky with bad posture; dry, flaky skin, dull hair, unclean-looking; full of ideas, but unable to carry them out, because of a lack of will-power; fuss over minor details; quick to anger, also quick to calm down; prefer sweet, fatty, spicy, and sour foods, alcohol, stimulants, dislike milk, hot; drinks, and eggs.
Comparing Calcarea Carbonica, Phosphorus, and Sulphur
We have two goals here. The first is to illustrate the problems of prescribing homeopathical remedies, so that you have some idea what to do when trying to select the remedy on your own. The other is a bit more elusive — maybe you are just one of those three remedy types so maybe you are just about to discover the remedy for you! The main symptom here is metrorrhagia due to uterine fibroids. Notice, however, that these remedies have other common symptoms:
fear thunderstorms — Calcarea and Phosphorus
dislike milk — Calcarea and Phosphorus
problems on the left side of the body — Phosphorus and Sulphur
fear of ghosts — Calcarea and Sulphur
There are differences as well: of these three, only Calcarea type person might have a history of eating chalk. If the patient tells you so, you need not look further, since the other two remedies do not have such a symptom.
The method we used here is called repertorization. You get the list of symptoms from the patient, and try to find the remedy that has most of those symptoms. Each remedy has its own list of symptoms. Some remedies, such as Lachesis, Sulphur, Pulsatilla etc. may have hundreds, even thousands of symptoms. In classical homeopathy, you make a list of all the remedies having one symptom, say it is metrorrhagia from uterine fibroids, then a list of all the remedies having another symptom, say it is fear from thunderstorm and so on. You must start from the symptoms of the patient, and from his first symptom you get a a list of remedies; from the second symptom you get another list of remedies and pick from those two lists only the remedy or remedies that have both symptoms. Then you take into account a third symptom, this generates the third list of remedies, and from that you take only the remedy or remedies that were pinpointed from the first two symptoms. (It is a mathematical process really, and the reason why you will find many mathematicians — myself included!, engineers etc. drawn to classical homeopathy). From several leading symptoms you arrive at the only remedy that covers them all (if such a remedy exists) and that is the remedy that the patient gets. It is mathematically proved that that remedy will cure all the symptoms, so — in theory — we only need wait for all those symptoms to withdraw or disappear. And in many cases it will just be so: it is from this fact that the whole idea of homeopathy draws its strength.
If you want to, you can repertorize your own symptoms. There is software for that, ranging from free to $49 to $1500 to $4000 and up, and there are also free sites offering limited repertorizations. After you get to a remedy, don’t order or take it yet, try reading something about homeopathy in general and about that remedy in particular. You will soon realize why being a homeopath is a profession unto itself.
Potencies and How to Make a Homeopathic Remedy
You can make a homeopathic remedy from just about anything. You start with a mother tincture, which holds the essence of something. For instance, if you wanted to make a remedy called Aurum Metallicum, which is gold, you would place a clean piece of gold into alcohol, let it remain there for some time (days, weeks etc.) and then the solution would have the essence of gold. In a simillar manner you would prepare the mother tincture from any flower, animal or human excrement, tissue, organ etc. Taking the remedy in the form of mother tincture is not the object of homeopathy. You make a homeopathic remedy by applying dillution and sucussion. Take a vial and put one part of the tincture in it and let the rest be 99 parts of, say, pure alcohol. You have just dilluted it to one 100th part, and it is denoted by 1C. Then shake the vial vigorously one hundred times and you have your remedy. Then take one part of that and put it into another vial with 99 parts of alcohol. Sucuss and you will have 2C. You go on in that manner for as long as you wish.
After 12 sucussions, or in the 12th potency as it is called, you have dilluted the original matter so much that there are no original particles left. When you drink a homeopathical remedy, you mostly get the information, the frequency of the remedy, not the original remedy itself. Much to everybody’s disbelief, the higher the potency, the stronger the remedy will act. This is also the main “logical” argument against homeopathy. Actually, the higher the potency, the more penetrating the remedy will be. In high potencies, the remedy acts on the higher parts of the patient’s energy being. The potency of CM, which stands for 100,000 sucussions, is said to go directly to the etheric body. There are even higher potencies, such as DM, 10MM etc.
Potencies dilluted in 10 parts instead of 100, are denoted as X or D. 1X is one tenth of the original substance, 2X is one 100 of the original substance and so on.
The most usual potencies are: 1X, 3X, 6X, 10X, 30X, 100X, 6C, 30C, 200C, 1M, 10M, 50M, CM, 10MM. You are free to use any other potencies, but if you are buying remedies from the homeopathical stores, you will be able to buy only what they have. If you were making the remedies on your own, with radionics machines, you will mostly be able to use any potency you like, up to 10MM or so. Depending on the machine you use, the range of potencies may be much higher.
Lower potencies usually work only on tissues and organs, while the potencies above 200C are, in general, considered high. The value of “high” has changed during the decades. In the beginnings of homeopathy, a potency of 12C or 30C was considered high, since it was difficult to produce manually. Later, various mechanical machines were made to help, so that in the middle of the 19th century, potencies such as 42M or 50M were available. Now, really high potencies can be made within a minute or so, through special machines (which are also displayed about in this book).
In the old school, the homeopath would have to first discover the remedy and then to decide upon the potency. If the remedy was given as the constitutional, the patient would take it three times in a row, in a potency 200C or higher, 12 hours apart, and then would let the remedy “do its thing”. In other cases, the remedy would have to be taken more frequently, in lesser potencies etc. There is also a contrary point of view: take the remedy in the highest available potency, 10MM or even higher, and let it sweep through the patient in order to erase all symptoms of illness.
In general, it is more important to prescribe a true remedy than to play with high potencies.
A homeopathic remedy should be used only while the symptoms last. After that, stop using it.
You take the remedy either from the globules (little pills) of sugar or from an alcohol solution. The result is the same. If you are making your own remedies, you can choose which carrier, and if you buy the remedy from the pharmacy, it will usually be in pills. Either way, you put the carrier into the mouth, beneath the tongue and let it be there for a minute or two. For best effect, you should not eat or drink half an hour before taking the remedy as well as half an hour afterwards. This is especially important if you are taking it as a constitutional remedy, meaning you are taking it a few times only.
Homeopathy in Practice
In homeopathy, prescribing the remedy is only the first part of the story. The patient may call you, and is almost certain to come back within a month or so. Then another remedy is prescribed or the first is repeated and so it goes on. If there is no progress after four months, the patient should change something — either the practitioner, or the method! (Joking only, do not change the method — homeopathy is with us for almost 200 years, and for a very good reason!) In the West, most homeopaths will be trained in classical homeopathy. If you visit them, you may be surprised by the procedure: they will just talk to you, more precisely, they will interview you. The first visit may last about on hour, sometimes longer. The homeopath will try to get as many details as is needed for him or her to decide upon the remedy. Those may be questions about any inherited problems, past illnesses, diet, conditions of living, sleeping, what kind of weather you prefer, what kind of food turns you on or off. Then the homeopath gives you the remedy and — often — you will not be told what it is. That is because some people are not happy when they are linked to this or that remedy. For instance, Lycopodium may be the best remedy for you but it also denotes a person obedient at work but acting as a local tyrant at home… See the point?
In classical homeopathy, you will be given exactly one remedy at a time. Theoretically speaking, there is no need to give two or more remedies since this will always be your constitutional remedy, the most powerful remedy there is for you. Unfortunately, there are only so many remedies, while the number of states the patient can be is indefinite. In reality, though, the patients one homeopath sees require only a handful of states and remedies. There are about 50 “main” remedies in homeopathy, and applying only them will cure most of the cases. For a more diverse practice, this may extend to 100 or so remedies, and they say that almost all cases may be resolved with 350 most popular remedies. The other remedies are just not used very often, if at all.
Still, too much energy is spent looking for the perfect remedy. A homeopathic practitioner from one century ago was seeing two or three persons per day, spending the rest of the day looking for the remedies. In this day of computers and the Internet, there is a lot of homeopathic software and it makes the tasks easier, but the fact remains that finding the true consitutional remedy is difficult. This is where many healers leave the realms of classical homeopathy, adding radionics and dowsing, prescribing homeopathic mixtures etc.
The Constitutional Remedy from an Astrological Point of View
In astrological terms, the constitutional remedy would be the remedy that most resembles your natal chart. For instance, Mars in Libra and the Moon conjunct Saturn in Aries in sixth and twelfth houses (the houses of illness) of the natal chart, would mean that your constitutional remedy must have some connection with inflammation of the kidney (Mars in Libra), eyes (Moon conjunct Saturn), sinusitis (Saturn in Aries) etc. Starting from that, without ever asking the patient about anything, we could narrow from the 3000 or so known homeopathic remedies down to only several. Actually, if we took the following symptoms:
Kidneys: inflammation Eye: cataract Head: pain: forehead middle: sinuses, frontal, from chronic coryza
the main remedy would be Apis. That may well be so, since Apis covers severe headache, lack of urination (Moon with Saturn is bladder), depression (Moon/Saturn — repressed feelings, harsh mother), irritability (planets in Aries) and so on. However, if the following symptom is taken into account:
Female Genitalia: metrorrhagia: fibroids, from
then the leading remedy would be Lycopodium. Note that neither Apis nor Lycopodium will have all the symptoms listed here. Homeopathy, as powerful as it is, is really uncomplete. In an ideal world, there would be a remedy having all the symptoms that a person has, but it just isn’t so. Even the most “constitutional” remedy still is an approximation of the patients energy field, these two can never equate. That is why, by the way, the maxim of homeopathy is “simillibus simillia curantur”, the like will cure the like — there is no mentioning of “the same curing the same”!
Temporary Constitutional Remedy
From the astrological chart you can see when there is danger and you can act as soon as you start seeing the symptoms in you and/or around you. You can turn to homeopathy and start taking the remedy much sooner than you would otherwise. It may not even be your true (natal) constitutional remedy, since the progressions and transits may drastically alter the original chart. In homeopathy, even the constitutional remedy will change in time. We can best see such a change from the progressed chart. The transits will also significantly skew the original chart: Saturn is 2-3 years in one sign, Uranus 8 years per sign, Neptune 16 years, and Pluto 10-30 years per sign.
Fibroids, for one, do not appear overnight. If you have the natal Moon on 22nd degree of Saggitarius, the stationary position of Saturn on 22 Gemini, in direct opposition, during the whole 2002 and up to the April 2003, probably has given you a concrete gynecological problem by now. In the natal chart it isn’t so, but the prolongued transits make it so. That means another remedy must be found, besides the constitutional remedy as such. Once again, if you find it, it can heal you, maybe not for life, but enough to get by through this or that crisis period in your life. So that would be a contemporary constitutional remedy.
The Role of Homeopathy in Healing
Homeopathy is the Holly Grail of energy healing: that the patient takes a few drop or pills, go home and be cured once and for all. It is a most direct form of healing available to us — if you can “spot” the right remedy, you can see amazing results within a few minutes, hours or days, depending on the case.
