Treatment of Ebola with Homeopathy

Background

During its more than 200 year history, homeopathy has proven highly effective in epidemics, both as regards cure and prevention, with well-documented success rates in, among others, scarlet fever, polio, cholera and flu epidemics, and offers a viable alternative to standard vaccination called homeoprophylaxis.

With the current threat of an Ebola epidemic, this technology and experience can be put to good use. In this article you will find the means to help you survive an Ebola virus infection, in particular, if no medical support is available to you.

In the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918, statistics ran as follows: 28% mortality in patients treated with traditional medicine, 1% mortality of patients treated with homeopathic remedies—and there were large numbers involved in these statistics. One wonders why medical authorities have not acted on this and numerous similar successes of homeopathy to improve their treatment procedures in epidemics.

The link to the pdf file Homeopathy in Epidemics and Pandemics, by Jayney Goddard at the end of this article reveals many examples of successful homeopathic treatment in various kinds of epidemics.

Symptoms of Ebola

After being infected with the Ebola virus, symptoms may appear as soon as after two days and as late as 21 days, the average period being 8–10 days.

Symptoms of Ebola can be similar to those of malaria, cholera, dengue fever, viral hemorrhaging fevers and tropical fevers.

Start Phase

Ebola usually starts with flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat, fatigue, muscle pain, abdominal pain and headache. There may also be chest pain, hiccups, shortness of breath, difficulty in swallowing and a red rash.

Middle Phase

In this phase of Ebola, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, liver and kidney problems appear, as well as problems with blood clotting, leading to bleeding.

Final Stage

The final stage of Ebola is the bloody one: red, bleeding eyes, bloody vomit, bloody stools, red or purple spots on the skin, localized collections of blood in the skin (hematoma), bleeding from body orifices.

The symptoms described above for Ebola resemble symptoms produced in healthy persons who took one of the following homeopathic remedies— including symptoms of people who were bitten by the snake concerned:

  • Crotalus Horridus (made from rattlesnake venom— fits the Ebola symptoms picture 95%)
  • Lachesis (made from venom of the bushmaster snake)
  • Bothrops (made from the venom of the yellow viper found on the island of Martinique)
  • Phosphorus (made from the element of the same name—relates to internal bleeding)

Thus, the symptom pictures of these remedies (check the Internet) should be examined for a match for the Ebola symptoms seen in a patient. Use the remedy with the closest match to treat the patient.

Example Case of Crotalus Horridus Symptoms

Just to give you an idea of the similarities of Ebola symptoms with those from rattle snake bite poisoning, here you have a case reported by a homeopathic doctor more than a century ago.

The patient, aged 54, had been bitten by a rattlesnake in the middle finger. He had received conventional treatment for four days, after which the medical personnel gave up, stating that no further treatment would do any good.

The homeopathic doctor, Dr. J. S. M. Chaffee, found the patient in a state of delirium, bleeding from the bitten finger, from the eyes, nose, ears, mouth, rectum and urethra; the entire body was wet with hot perspiration, the pulse weak at 110, respiration 40, temperature 105 oF.

The patient was prescribed Crotalus Horridus 30C in the form of a few pills of this remedy dissolved in four ounces of water, to take a teaspoonful every hour.

The doctor returned twenty-four hours later to observe that the patient had improved markedly. The temperature was normal, pulse regular, the delirium gone and the appetite returning. The patient’s saliva and urine were slightly tinged with blood.

The remedy was continued for two days, after which recovery was practically complete.

This case has an interesting parallel, as at that time, 1892, there was no anti-venom available for this case, just as there is no cure nor vaccine for Ebola at present—and, lo and behold, a homeopathic remedy cured the case in short order.

Treating Ebola

Your best bet is to find a homeopath to treat yourself or your patient. With Ebola this might not be so feasible, and if you find there is no other assistance available, continue as described below.

Add a pill or two of the homeopathic remedy found to have the most similar symptoms to a plastic cup filled with water (tap or mineral water). Starting with Crotalus Horridus 30C is probably the best idea. Stir the cup with a plastic spoon until the pills dissolve. With the spoon, place some drops of the remedy on the patient’s tongue.

How often the remedy is taken depends on the severity of symptoms. If they are very severe, give the remedy every half hour until improvement is observed, then repeat it every hour. This can be reduced to once or twice a day, depending on improvement.

If no improvement is observed after 24 hours, go to the next homeopathic remedy on the list above.

What to Do In Case Homeopathic Remedies are Unavailable

At present, about 50% to 90% of patients die, even with intensive hospital care. The death rate during the Spanish flu in 1918 was only 5%, but killed from 50 to 100 million people—and in an era with much less international travel to spread infection. Imagine the devastation the 50% – 90% mortality rate of Ebola could produce now. You guessed it: you would be quarantined to your home, on your own.

With any epidemic, such as Ebola, bird and swine flu, if you have no other recourse for treatment—no medical assistance available— and you have contracted the epidemic disease, there is a procedure for making a remedy at home that will keep you alive, although you may have a rough time of it. Vitamins, especially C, will be helpful.

You may think the following procedure—developed by the English homeopath Peter Chappell—is a crazy thing to do. But, if you or a loved one is sick with Ebola with the prospect of having one week to live, and no other help is available, you might consider it. Besides, Einstein said that if an idea didn’t seem crazy, it wasn’t worth anything.

This procedure is based on a form of therapy related to homeopathy called isopathy (curing a disease with the virulent agent of the same disease), which has proven successful for many ailments. You could check this out.

A curious and interesting use of isopathy is that, in some regions of Brazil, if a child is bitten by a snake, the mother will immediately hunt the snake down, cut its head off and apply the stump to the bite wound to cure the child.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The following remedy should only be taken by persons who are already sick with Ebola

How to Make an Ebola Remedy for a Person Sick with Ebola

What you need:

  1. A face mask and gloves
  2. Two bottles (50 ml up to 500 ml glass or plastic bottles) with caps
  3. Clean water (mineral or tap water)
  4. An Ebola sample: some spit or other disease product, such as blood, from the person infected with Ebola. Any small quantity will do, even a pinhead.
  5. An alcoholic liquid, such as whisky, brandy, rum, etc.
  6. Half an hour of your time.

Procedure:

  1. Fill the bottle with water, leaving about 20% space at the top.
  2. Place the Ebola sample in the water in the bottle.
  3. Close the top of the bottle with the cap.
  4. Hold the bottle and strike it hard against a solid surface, such as a large book, 40 times.
  5. Pour out the contents of the bottle.
  6. Refill the bottle with water (the fluid remaining on the inside surface of the bottle will serve as the next Ebola sample).
  7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 a total of 30 times.

Storage:

  1. Pour the bottle solution into another bottle—your stock bottle.
  2. Add 10% by volume of the alcoholic liquid (whisky, brandy, etc.) as a preservative.
  3. Store in a place away from sunlight and electronic equipment.

Using  this stock bottle, you can supply the Ebola remedy to as many people who are sick with Ebola you want. With one drop from the stock bottle as an Ebola sample you can produce another stock bottle to give to someone else. Instead of the original Ebola sample you used above to make the original stock bottle, you use a drop from the first stock bottle. This process can be carried out ad infinitum, supplying a whole city of people sick with Ebola, etc., if needed.

Taking the Ebola Remedy

For those who are sick with Ebola and have no possible recourse to medical attention:

  1. Place a teaspoonful of the Ebola remedy from your stock bottle into a cup filled with water.
  2. Stir the water five times with a disposable spoon or stick.
  3. Take a sip every 15 minutes, stirring five times each time until you notice improvement, then stop.
  4. On improving, you can ease off and take the remedy every hour or so, again stirring five times before taking the remedy each time.
  5. Refill the cup as needed after striking the stock bottle against a hard surface five times.

Post treatment

Other problems may appear some time after being afflicted with Ebola. Among these are: testicle inflammation, joint pains, muscle pains, skin peeling, hair loss, light sensitivity, eye inflammation, even blindness.

Again, the best thing to do is find a homeopathic professional to treat you. Otherwise, the homeopathic remedy Mercurius Solubilis 200C can be useful for inflammations. You could take one pill a day for a few days and then stop.

For exhaustion you could take the remedy Carbo Vegetabilis 200C once. Arnica 200C once a day for some days will also be useful. Leave some hours between taking different homeopathic remedies.

Phosphorus 200C taken once a day for a few days can be useful for eye problems.

How to Ingest Homeopathic Remedies

There should be no taste in your mouth on taking a homeopathic remedy. Thus, you should not eat or drink anything (besides water) at least fifteen minutes before and after taking it.

This also applies to smoking. Nor should there be any strong odor, such as from perfume, incense, etc. present in the room. You can take a homeopathic remedy any time of the day or night, keeping these points in mind.

Avoid touching a pill with your fingers as your energy field can neutralize the information carried. Use the remedy container cap instead, or some other means, to throw a pill onto your tongue. Allow the remedy to dissolve on your tongue as if it were a piece of candy (actually it is in a way, since it consists of milk sugar, i.e., lactose, plus a trace of alcohol, and curative information). Liquid remedies are dripped onto the tongue.

Wait at least ten minutes before eating or drinking anything besides water. Afterwards you can eat and drink as you normally do.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Many people have asked me: ”How is it possible that such a tiny pill can bring about such a great improvement in such a short time?” And it is true. Homeopathic pills are usually quite small—about 1 mm or 1/32 inch in diameter, which makes it hard to believe they could do anything, especially when people are told that they contain no chemicals—only energy or information that stimulates the body to cure itself.

The size of a pill and its lack of chemical drugs constitute a GREAT leap of faith for some and an object of sneering ridicule for others, who consider the effects to be of a placebo nature. However, these pills have worked for more than two centuries on babies, pets, livestock and wild animals—even plants—so where the placebo idea might fit into this picture would be hard to explain, except for someone with ingrown fixed ideas.

Therefore, please remember that you only need to take one single pill, just one, not all the pills in the container, as some patients have done. Taking all the pills would have the same effect as taking one pill, so you might as well save the rest for another occasion.

Homeopathic remedies do not expire, even though an expiry date is printed on the container. This is due to the general ignorance regarding homeopathy of the medical authorities who regulate expiry dates. Two hundred year old pills found stowed away in a forgotten drawer have worked perfectly well.

The price of a homeopathic pill is quite affordable, usually much less than 5 cents. Since you will only need one or two pills to effect a cure, you can understand that such remedies are not economically attractive to Big Pharma. Expensive and toxic drugs that you have to take every day are the preferred medicines of Big Pharma.

Conclusion

I hope you will not need to apply the information presented in this article, but if you do, it could save your life and that of a loved one. With dangerous large-scale epidemics, such as Ebola could turn out to be, the medical establishment is more often than not caught unprepared, as vaccines and/or successful treatment take time to develop and the logistics involved in distribution can be insurmountable. Therefore, you may be left to your own devices, in which case alternative self-treatment, in particular, homeopathy, would be your only hope of survival.

Homeopathic Childhood Remedies

While they are growing up children get into many situations where homeopathic remedies can be quite useful. You will see this once you have experienced amazing changes in a short period of time, even seconds. Many people have characterized the results as magical.

It is said that what is considered magic today becomes the technology of tomorrow. Try a thought experiment of returning to the 17th century and explaining TV, mobile phones, the Internet, planes, automobiles, etc. to a person you meet. You might end up in a castle dungeon, or burned at the stake.

Consider stocking up on some or all of these homeopathic remedies to help your child pass more smoothly through the possible childhood traumas listed below. Start with one you think will be needed.

Even though these pills are very small, they are quite effective when they correspond to the symptoms of your child. You only need to give one pill. Their function is to stimulate the body to heal itself.

An analogy could be to insert a pen drive in a computer for carrying out some diagnostics and running a repair procedure. In the case of a homeopathic pill, your body runs the diagnostic program indicated by the pill, and repairs itself.

Homeopathic pills are similar to keys. If a key fits the lock, it will open. So if the homeopathic remedy corresponds to the symptoms, then you get rapid results, if not, then nothing happens and no harm is done. You then can try the next possible remedy.

Homeopathy is not like orthodox medicine. It has different rules of the game.

Below you will find situations that commonly arise during childhood, with indications for remedies you can use to help your child get better rapidly.

Included are:

  • animal bites
  • baby colic
  • bee stings
  • bronchitis
  • chickenpox
  • earache
  • falls and injuries
  • mumps
  • measles
  • nosebleed
  • pinched fingers and toes
  • rusty nails
  • splinters
  • teething problems
  • tonsillitis
  • vaccination

Animal bites
If your child is bitten by a dog or other animal that can be infected with rabies, give Lyssinum 200C right away to protect against rabies. Follow up some hours later with Ledum 200C and Arnica 200C.

Baby colic (crying episodes for several hours a day)
For baby colic, give the baby one pill of Colocynthis 30C or 200C, then wait an hour or so to see whether there is any change. If no change, try again one more time, but no more.

Bee stings
After a bee or wasp sting, give you child Apis 200C once. You may have to repeat it some hours later, depending on how your child feels. Usually the pain will have subsided rapidly. Follow up later with Ledum 200C and Arnica 200C.

The remedy Apis 200C can prevent anaphylactic shock after a bee sting in those who are allergic to bee poison. If your child has this allergy, you should have Apis 200C available at all times. Just one pill will do.

Should your child have difficulty swallowing with saliva in the mouth, which could be due to epiglottitis (swollen epiglottis), give Apis 200C immediately before rushing the child to hospital.

Bronchitis
For bronchitis, give one pill of Antimonium Tartaricum 200C and wait an hour or so. If there is no improvement, try Oscillococcinum (also known as Anas Barb) 200C. If no improvement, call your homeopath.

Chickenpox (Varicella)
For chickenpox, give Rhus tox 30C, wait a few hours, then repeat. If there is insufficient improvement you can try Rhus tox 200C, and wait for some hours to gauge response.

The remedy Antimonium Tartaricum 30C or 200C can also be used here in alternation.

Earache
For earache, use Aconite 30C or 200C if the inflammation is recent and the ear is red, hot and painful. The patient in this case is usually thirsty, worse from cold and worse in the evening.

Give Belladonna 30C or 200C if the inflammation appeared suddenly and there are boring, violent pains. The face is red, swollen and hot, the ear swollen, with possible pus formation. Pain may extend to the throat. The child is not thirsty.

Give Pulsatilla 6C, 30C or 200C when there are sticking and tearing pains in and behind the ears. There will most likely be a “poor me,” wimpy attitude. Possibly there is a thick, yellowish green discharge from the ear. The ears feel swollen and closed, with lack of hearing. The 6C potency will clear the Eustachian tubes.

Give Chamomilla 30C or 200C if the patient is very sensitive and irritable, possibly angry, and there are intense stabbing, tearing pains in the ears. Your child is definitely better from being carried.

Give Rhus tox 200C if there is inflammation of the middle ear with a thick, yellow discharge and itching inside, possibly as if something were crawling inside.

Falls and injuries
Arnica speeds up the healing process after falls, operations, dental work, physical and emotional shock—anything that causes injury to your child.

Depending on the severity of the injury you give a pill of Arnica 200C once a day for a day or two until the pain and/or bruises subside.

Mumps
In mumps, give Jaborandi 200C once and await response. If there is testicular inflammation, give Pulsatilla 200C once.

Measles
For measles Pulsatilla 30C or 200C is an excellent remedy. Give once and await response.

Nosebleed
Millefolium 30C is good for simple nosebleeds.

For recurrent nosebleeds with profuse bright blood give Phosphor 30C.

Give Ferrum Phosphoricum 6C for nosebleeds that occur for no obvious reason.

Pinched fingers, toes
For pinched fingers the standard remedy is Hypericum.

Use whatever potency you have, a lower potency such as 6C, 12C or 30C is convenient, but any will serve.

Hypericum is the specific remedy for injury to nerve-rich tissue. It also comes as a cream, which you can apply to the site of injury.

Rusty nails
If your child steps on a rusty nail, give Ledum 200C immediately. It will prevent your child from getting tetanus (lockjaw). The remedy is quite powerful, it has even been seen to stop lockjaw while a rigid jaw was setting in.

Ledum 200C is the remedy for any puncture of the skin from whatever cause, such as insects, snakes, needles, etc.

Splinters
For splinters, thorns and spines from animals give Ledum 200C first. Then use Silicea 6C or 30C. This will drive the foreign body out of the body. You may need to repeat 6C every day or 30C twice a week.

It is not recommended to take Silicea if the patient has implants such as pacemakers, metal parts, etc. in the body as it will attempt to drive such out.

Teething problems
With teething problems, use Chamomilla 30C or 200C first, especially if there is unbearable pain. One cheek may be red, the other pale and the child feels better from being carried.

Try Belladonna 200C if the child is irritable, restless, flushed and delirious.

With slow teething in chubby children who sweat at night, use Calcarea Carbonica 200C. This remedy follows well after Chamomilla.

With red gums, excessive sweat and saliva, green stools, give Mercurius Solubilis 30C.

Tonsillitis (very sore throat)
For tonsillitis give Mercurius Corrosivus 6C or 30C, especially if the tonsils are red, possibly with white spots. Repeat if necessary.

If the lymph glands of the upper neck are quite enlarged and sore, give Phytolacca 6C or 30C. (Phytolacca 6C taken for some months regularly will clear the lymphatic system.)

If the sore throat is due to a sudden fever after exposure to cold, give Aconitum 200C. This will most often stop the onset of flu.

Vaccination
After every vaccination your child receives, you are advised to give Thuja Occidentalis 200C to reduce side effects and any possible later complications such as allergies, autism, attention deficit, multiple sclerosis, auto-immune disease.

See my article Homeoprophylaxis: homeopathic immunization—safe and 90% effective on this blog.

This applies especially if your child is upset, complains, gets a fever and/or muscle pains after a vaccination.

How to Take Homeopathic Remedies

There should be no taste in your mouth when taking a homeopathic remedy. Therefore, you should not eat or drink anything (except water) at least fifteen minutes before and after taking a remedy. This also applies to smoking and tooth brushing.

Nor should there be any strong smell such as from perfume, incense, etc. present in the room, nor perfume or creams on your hands when handling the remedy container.

Avoid touching the remedy with your fingers as this can neutralize it. Use the bottle cap of the remedy, or some other means to launch the tablet onto the tongue.

Allow the remedy to dissolve on your tongue. Wait at least 15 minutes before eating or drinking anything. Then you can eat and drink as normal.

The remedy is normally a small tablet (globule) of lactose, so it will have a slightly sweet taste.  There are no chemicals except a tiny trace of alcohol. It contains information that stimulates the body to heal itself.

Basic homeopathic remedies – Arsenicum

Arsenicum (Arsenicum Album or Arsenic), the chemical element, is a very effective remedy for vomiting and/or diarrhea after eating bad food, i.e. when you have contracted food poisoning.

The typical situation is that you eat or drink something (especially in a country or region you have not been in before) and then some hours later, or the next day or so you feel nausea and start vomiting, often shortly followed by diarrhea.

This can have serious consequences if action is not taken promptly. You may wind up in hospital for some time – weeks even.  In a foreign country that can be costly – missed plane, no insurance, poor treatment, etc.

Here is where Arsenicum comes to the rescue.  You of course are prepared and have Arsenicum 200C in your homeopathic remedy kit that you always carry with you without fail. So you take a pill of Arsenicum 200C and soon your problems fade away.

If your vomiting and diarrhea should persist, you can repeat the dose after a couple of hours. Remember to drink sufficient liquids to replace your losses due to diarrhea.

In severe, intractable cases, you can make use of the plussing technique.  You dissolve one or two pills of Arsenicum in a plastic cup of clean water, preferably mineral water as contaminated local tap water can have been the causative agent of your illness.

Then you use a plastic spoon to stir five times before taking a sip of the remedy water. Stir each time before you take the remedy. This stirring increases the potency slightly (the reason it is called plussing), thus intensifying the effect of the remedy each time.

You can stir five times and take a sip as often as every five minutes, or every 15 minutes, or every half hour, etc., depending on the severity of your ailment. Do this until you feel better and then stop taking any more of the remedy.

The reason for using plastic is that you will be throwing the cup and the spoon away after use, since these utensils will be permeated with the vibration of Arsenicum forever and a day, thus giving anyone who uses them a tiny dose of Arsenicum, possibly leading to some minor short-term symptoms of Arsenicum, but only if the utensil is used by this person frequently.

If you don’t have Arsenicum 200C, you can use the potency 12C or 30C – not lower – possibly needing to repeat the remedy more often, but only repeat if you are not getting any better, or if you got better but it did not last. The plussing technique described above is a very efficient method whatever the potency you have available.

Many chemical elements such as arsenic have been made into effective and non-poisonous homeopathic remedies by means of the process of homeopathic dilution and dynamization developed by the brilliant German doctor Samuel Hahnemann, who originated homeopathy about two centuries ago – of which more later.

How to Use Arnica

arnica

Arnica in homeopathic potencies is the trauma remedy par excellence. This remedy is a great place to start if you want to learn about the healing effectiveness of homeopathic remedies. Having some handy with you at all times, many opportunities will arise for you to use it and see rapid results.  

The potencies 30C, 200C, 1M and 10M are most frequently used. How these potencies and their derived creams are made is explained in great detail in my eBook Family Homeopathy and Survival Guide, which you can buy on this blog site under the Products tab. The Spanish version will soon be available on my Spanish blog listed under the Links tab.

Arnica can be obtained from online homeopathic pharmacies, a couple of which are listed under the Links tab of this blog site.

It should be noted that Arnica will not interfere with normal medication. The pill which has a diameter of about 1 millimeter does not contain any chemicals besides milk sugar (lactose) and a tiny fraction of preservative alcohol.

What it does contain is information that stimulates the organism to greatly accelerate trauma self-healing. If this seems incredible, so is electricity – just give it a go and try it.

Treatment with Arnica after a traumatic encounter with an escaped gorilla might even convince a diehard skeptic. Arnica gives a turbo boost to the body’s inborn healing powers, provided directly from the pharmacy of Nature. Mountain goats eat the plant after suffering falls.

Below are described a number of situations with treatment suggestions where this marvelous natural trauma remedy will ensure great relief. Treatment suggestions are given.

Injuries
Give Arnica as the first remedy after an injury. It will reduce bruising, swelling, pain and promote rapid healing.  Use the potency 200C or 1M. Arnica can be repeated once a day for some days, as necessary.  

If the injury is really severe, Arnica 1M can be repeated a number of times every 15 minutes or so. Use your judgment.

I recall the case of an oil rig worker who had fallen from a height of 10 meters a decade before he came for treatment. He had been suffering from debilitating physical pain ever since the injury. After taking Arnica 10M every day for a month he experienced great relief.

Injuries remain in your body for the rest of your life, better to alleviate them with Arnica, before you have to use crutches.

Accidents
After a serious accident, such as a car accident, or a great fall, give Arnica 1M or 10M several times (at intervals of 5, 15 or 30 minutes) until the patient improves.  For less serious accidents, potencies of Arnica such as 200C and 30C, or lower, can be used. (However, I have often been surprised at the rapid healing with low potencies such as 3C.)

Operations
After operations, Arnica 1M or 200C once a day for several days will greatly accelerate recovery.

Women will get back on their feet rapidly after childbirth if they take Arnica daily for a few days – using 1M if the going has been rough. Alternate days with Staphisagria 200C to heal cuts and lacerations or a Cesarean. Homeopathic Silica cream will reduce scarring.

Medical doctors would do well to use Arnica in treating concussions. Rapid results will be seen with the potencies 200C and 1M.  Some intensive care units are already doing this in conjunction with a homeopathic practitioner or doctor.

Hospitals treatment would be greatly enhanced with Arnica available and in use, especially in intensive care units.

Dental work
After dental work, taking a pill of Arnica 200C or 1M once or twice some hours apart will do wonders to eliminate pain and discomfort, especially after tooth extractions. Follow up with Staphysagria 200C in dental operations.

Sports
After martial arts events or boxing matches, wrestling, challenging competitions, sports injuries, exhausting races, sprains and falls, etc., repeating Arnica 1M or 10M once a day for some days, followed by Arnica 200C a day or two will restore your form.

Players in team sports such as American football, soccer, rugby, lacrosse, etc. will find Arnica quite useful for minor to severe injuries after games. Kicked shins, sprains, rough tackles, concussing headers, jarring falls, sharp elbowing, etc. all take their toll on the body and if allowed to accumulate can suddenly cut a career short.

The Armed Forces will find a great ally in Arnica – the fighting soldier’s remedy.

Emotional shock
Arnica is the perfect remedy to relieve the shock suffered by victims of robbery, rape and beatings, which are so prevalent these drug-laden days. Here high potencies such as 1M and 10M should be used, although 200C will probably do.

For shock due to the loss of a loved one, Ignatia 1M might be the best first remedy to use. See my blog post on grief and sadness remedies. As you will see in that post article, Arnica, Natrum Muriaticum and Ignatia constitute a formidable emotional trauma trio.

Body pains
Arnica cream is quite effective for healing body pains and bruises after having been pummeled (such as after martial arts events or boxing matches) – so long as there is no open wound where it is applied. Use the cream several times a day, as needed.

Remember that old injuries respond well to the application of Arnica cream.

Animals and plants
Animals also respond well to Arnica – as do plants. A couple of pills can be dissolved in their drinking bowl, or sprayed onto the tongue with a plastic syringe.  The same types of situations and potencies for humans also apply to animals.

If you see a tree that has been excessively pruned or mangled, dissolve some pills of Arnica in a bucket of water and pour it on the roots. Maybe a star will twinkle for you that evening.

Basic homeopathic remedies – Aconite

Aconite

Aconite (Aconitum Napellus), is a plant called Monkshood or Wolfsbane. It grows in mountain regions where furious cold, cutting winds frequently blow. The situations of people who benefit from this remedy are characterized by tension.

Aconite is used for curing a cold in the making — a beginning sore throat — that is coming on due to exposure to an external cold wind, an air conditioner in a room, a fan or a cold draft — basically, getting chilled. This exposure is often followed by entering a warm room or area, or even repeatedly being exposed to a cold and then a warm area.

Give Aconite 200C or Aconite 1M once and the sore throat will dissipate and no cold symptoms will manifest later on. The remedy is quite effective, but, of course, you need to have it on you — in your acute remedy kit that you always bring along wherever you go for your own use or the benefit and education of others.

Aconite is also an important remedy for intense fear — especially for long-term phobias — where there is a known object of the fear, such as in fear of dogs, fear of flying, fear of entering a tunnel, etc., whatever it might be, so long as it is a specific intense fear and not a general anxiety.

For best results, give one pill of Aconite 1M once to the patient, just once. The fear will gradually evaporate, the length of time depending on how deep-seated the fear is. Repeating the remedy later “just to make sure” or “to speed up the healing” will counteract the healing process. Homeopathic remedies are not taken the way normal medicines are.

For fear of flying, give Aconite a day before the flight or just before boarding the plane. Here the potency 200C can also be quite effective. It should be noted that the remedy Argentum Nitricum 200C might be preferred for fear of flying should the patient be a talkative, nervous type.

For intense fear prior to delivering a baby, give Aconite 1M.

The intense fear of soldiers going into battle will be greatly alleviated with Aconite 1M.

Aconite is also useful prior to making a parachute or bungee jump, or any type of activity that brings on intense fear.

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.

What Is Classical Homeopathy, by Ken Oftedal.

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.
