Making Homeopathic Remedies for Special Purposes

You can make an effective home-made homeopathic remedy for anything that might be causing an adverse effect on you, such as:

  • A local skin exposure to a chemical
  • A medicine, drug or chemical that has made you feel ill
  • Disagreeable effects of chemotherapy (obtain a very tiny pinhead sample of the chemotherapy substance, or get the chemical cadmium sulfate, CaSO4, from a materials or chemist’s shop to make the remedy – see note below)
  • Any electromagnetic radiationyou have been exposed to that you feel has adversely affected your health
  • Exposure to radiation (see the article Treating Radiation Exposure with Classical Homeopathy under Articles on this blog for further details)
  • Exposure to X-rays (use cadmium sulfate, CaSO4, or sunlight to make a remedy for this, see note below)
  • Exposure to a particular magnetic field
  • Exposure to a particular electric field
  • The wound from an animal bite
  1. Obtain a tiny sample of the offending substance or influence, or from a wound.
    If it is a solid substance you can soak it in water for some hours and use a portion of this water, say 1 ml, as a sample for making your remedy.
    If it is an influence (vibration, electromagnetic field, radiation, light, etc.), expose some milk sugar (lactose powder) to it for some hours and use a portion of the milk sugar, say 1 g, as a sample.
  2. Put the sample into a small bottle you can cap, and fill it with water (clean tap water, distilled water,  spring water).
  3. Holding the bottle in your hand, strike your hand forcefully 40 times on a hard surface such as a book.
  4. Pour out the contents of the bottle into the sink.
  5. Refill the bottle with water.
  6. Repeat steps three to five the number of times (say n) necessary to obtain the potency you want.
    To keep it simple and safe use n=12 as any traces of poison chemical will have completely disappeared by then.
    This means that you have to repeat steps 3–5 twelve times.
    Values of n from 3 to 30 are often used – where 3, 6, 12 and 30 are the usual potencies made.
  7. To the final solution you need to leave room for adding 20% alcohol (vodka, brandy or whisky) as a preservative to avoid the growth of fungus, etc.

How to take the remedy

  1. Take some drops of the remedy a number of times each day, for example, 3–5 times a day, until you notice a change for better or worse.
    If you have become better, don’t take any more of the remedy unless you get worse again.
  2. If you have become worse, wait until the worse condition ends.
    If you then feel better with more energy and greater well being, don’t take any more of the remedy unless you get worse again.
  3. Proceed with steps one and two above until your improvement is stable, or you feel it is time to stop.

Note:  If you have a homeopathic pharmacy available, instead of making the cadmium sulfate remedy yourself, you could purchase the homeopathic remedy Calcium Sulphuricum 12C from the pharmacy and take it as indicated above since this will be more effective. Milk sugar (lactose) is known as sac lac by the pharmacy, so just order sac lac.

Homeopathic Remedies for Grief and Sadness

The main homeopathic remedies for grief and sadness are Ignatia, Natrum Muriaticum (nat mur) and Causticum.

These remedies are used for different purposes as described below.

Ignatia (Ignatia amara, St. Ignatius Bean)

Death of a loved one
Ignatia is given after a loved one dies and the surviving person is totally shocked by this event, having a feeling of unreality, as if in a nightmare, that this could not possibly have happened, or be true. The surviving person is in a state of emotional shock, even hysteria, and can’t believe that his or her loved one has died. Some people even try to commit suicide.

Ignatia 1M or 10M can be of great help in alleviating this horrible feeling. The remedy needs only to be given once.

If this initial state is not treated with Ignatia, deep depression can result in those left behind. Here the next remedy nat mur described below can be quite helpful.

(Funeral homes should offer Ignatia 1M to grieving relatives and friends. As the remedy is so inexpensive (one US cent will pay for quite a number of pills) it will not burden their budget and only enhance their good reputation with the good results obtained.)

Ending of relationships
Another important use of Ignatia is to cure the emotional state of a person after a relationship has been ended. Such people are often very tearful and desolate and weep without cessation over the loss of a loved one – be it a boyfriend, a girlfriend a husband or a wife. Some even commit suicide due to unbearable sorrow.

Here Ignatia 1M is used, and in a few weeks the afflicted person is often in great spirits, with a totally different view of the loss, even considering the separation of no great importance, or a blessing.

Natrum Muriaticum (nat mur)

This is a state of long-term sadness and bitterness. Typically it develops after the loss of a loved one by either death or separation, and the initial shock has subsided without treatment with Ignatia.

This state often keeps developing years after a loss. Tears can appear on talking about a loved one, or being reminded of him or her. An emotional surge of sadness can suddenly arise.

Here the 1M potency of the remedy is quite useful. Given once it typically leads to weeping episodes during a week or so, mostly taking place in private.

The 10M potency can also be given once after a month or two if nat mur 1M does not alter the state entirely.

Causticum
This remedy is quite useful after a person has suffered a long string of losses, whether they be losses of loved ones, or financial or other losses. It is a state of long-lasting grief. Many in the Causticum state are hopeless and despondent, even wanting to die.

Causticum persons are often overly sympathetic. They can weep when they see other people weeping, or from having great sympathy with others.

Causticum people react strongly to any type of injustice, becoming quite angry and willing to do something about it.

However, on the other side of the coin, Causticum persons can be quite bitter, even hateful and revolutionary anarchists.

Here the 1M or 10M potency given once can be quite effective in bringing a person out of this state.

How to take homeopathic pills
There should be no aftertaste in the mouth on taking a homeopathic remedy. Thus, you should not eat or drink anything (besides water) at least fifteen minutes before and after taking the remedy.

Nor should there be any strong odor, e.g., perfume, incense, etc. present in the room.

It can be practical to take the remedy in the morning before tooth brushing and breakfast. But any time of the day will do.

Avoid touching the remedy with your fingers as this can neutralize it. Use the remedy container cap instead, or some other means, to throw the pill onto the tongue.

Allow the pill to dissolve on the tongue and wait at least fifteen minutes before ingesting anything. Don´t worry about any unpleasant taste. The remedy is a tiny lactose sugar pill with no chemicals, so it will taste like a piece of candy. It only contains information the body will use to heal itself.

Homeopathic remedies can be obtained via the Internet. Be sure to order the correct potency as indicated above, as otherwise the remedy may be too weak.

Homeopathic Remedy for Vaccination Damage

The current situation faced by many parents
Unfortunately, in many schools in some countries, vaccination is required by law these days for children to be able to attend school, or, if not by law, then enforced by local policy.

(Bizarre as it may seem, this also applies to adults who work for certain institutions and companies or reside in certain areas. The following is written for parents dealing with children, but can also be adapted by adults to themselves as needed after any vaccination.)

To help in this situation, parents can administer one pill of the homeopathic remedy Thuja Occidentalis 200C after any and every vaccination of their child. This will minimize damage done by the vaccination–which can include development of allergies, autism, auto-immune diseases and turning your child into a human vegetable.

The latter human vegetable effect is quite well known to medical authorities, but is considered collateral damage as the percentage of children (probably not their own) reduced to this state is rather small. Nevertheless, irate parents have initiated and won million dollar lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies. It seems they can bear the cost.

How to take Thuja 200C
There should be no aftertaste in the mouth on taking a homeopathic remedy. Thus, your child should not eat or drink anything (besides water) at least fifteen minutes before and after taking the remedy.

Nor should there be any strong odor, e.g., perfume, incense, etc. present in the room.

It can be practical to take the remedy in the morning before tooth brushing and breakfast. But any time of the day will do.

Avoid touching the remedy with your fingers as this can neutralize it. Use the remedy container cap instead, or some other means, to throw the pill onto the tongue.

Allow the pill to dissolve on the tongue and wait at least fifteen minutes before letting your child ingest anything. Don´t worry about any unpleasant taste. The remedy is a tiny lactose sugar pill with no chemicals, so it will taste like a piece of candy to your child. It only contains information the body will use to heal itself.

With small babies, the pill can be dissolved in some water in a discardable plastic cup from which it can be sprayed onto the tongue using a plastic syringe.

(By the way, this is a practical and preferred method for giving the remedy to dogs and cats, or any other vaccinated animal. Their water bowl can also be used for this. Yes, animals also suffer from vaccination side effects.)

Afterwards your child may eat and drink as normal.

Homeopathic remedies can be obtained via the Internet. Be sure to order the potency 200C (or 200CH) as otherwise the remedy may be too weak.

Homeoprophylaxis: homeopathic immunization—safe and 90% effective, by Ken Oftedal.

Homeopathic Childbirth Remedies

Before childbirth
Should the baby be in a breech position — i.e., it will be born bottom first instead of head first — one pill of Pulsatilla 200C a week or so in advance of the expected birth date will often set the baby right before delivery.

As a preparation prior to giving birth, take one pill of Arnica 200C the day before expected delivery and just before giving birth.

Fear before giving birth
If you experience fear prior to delivery, take Aconite 1M the night before and some hours prior to giving birth.

Don’t take it at the same time as Arnica, but some hours apart, if possible.

If the fear does not respond, take Arsenicum 200C instead of Aconite.

Labor and delivery
During labor, Caulophyllym 200C (weakness of reproductive organs) will help with dilation and the delivery process.

If it does not help, take any of the following:

  • Cimicifuga 200C (with weak contractions),
  • Pulsatilla 200C (if no thirst, and the warm room is uncomfortable)
  • Gelsemium 200C (on feeling weak and trembling)

After childbirth
If there has been a perineal tear or cut, or a cesarean section during childbirth, take Staphisagria 1M several times the first day a few hours apart, followed some hours later by Arnica 1M.

Calendula cream heals cut wounds rapidly. 

For up to a week after childbirth take Arnica 200C several times a day, as you feel the need.
If you experience pain, you can alternate Arnica 200C with Hypericum 200C.
Should you not have any of the above potencies, you can take any other available lower potency of the remedy concerned more frequently.

Basic homeopathic remedies – Arnica

arnica

Arnica Montana (homeopathic and pharmaceutic abbreviation arn) is made from the plant of the same name. You take it after any physical injury. It is also called the boxer’s remedy, which well illustrates what it is good for.

Boxers, wrestlers and similarly exposed persons should have a box full available at all times. It will heal their bruises and soreness in no time and erase the trauma from their body.

(Physical trauma remains in your body, so if you don´t treat it with Arnica then when you reach an advanced age some problem will most likely appear at the site of the injury.)

Arnica will speed up the healing process after falls, operations, dental work, physical and emotional shock—anything that causes you injury.

Depending on the severity of the injury you just take a pill once a day for a day or so until the pain and/or bruise subside.

This is the first remedy to practice with. Its use will show you the efficacy of homeopathic remedies and you will gain valuable insight into their magical action.

Use Arnica cream to smear on sore spots for rapid relief and healing (avoid placing it on open wounds). It will soothe areas of old injuries and keep them from emerging as an illness problem.

By the way, mountain goats head directly for Arnica plants and eat them after a fall.
