Tanya that is really wonderful. dancing broccoli indeed!

Tanya - I really saw the reduction of frequency for myself with uti's. It was dramatic for me, and I haven't had to take a remedy for it for months now. Truly remarkable.

Interesting comments about increasing strength rather than changing remedy, Panser. I don't have the materials for that at the moment, but it is good info for me.

My 6 year old is sleeping with the lights on full blast again. I asked if they could go off and there was a firm no. Time to give him gels again (pendulum said yes) and see if it helps. I also was lax about FEs the past two days. I will see if there is a shift again soon.

I've begun to feel a bit better with my neck and shoulder. Still pain while swallowing, but I can swallow and can talk with much more comfort. I feel comforted that I am seeing improvement. I feel more at peace tonight about this part of my journey. When I start to develop a skill I tend to not be easy on myself when I'm not apparently successful. I can't say with confidence that homeopathy helped me with this. If it did, it didn't do it with a song and a dance as it so often happens. and that is ok. It is easier to be philosophical when you are not in great pain. So here is a lesson for me of being gentle with oneself.

Intellectually and emotionally I keep on being pulled toward colocynthis and sepia, but almost 100% I have gotten no's with my pendulum. Maybe what I really need is not in my remedy 50 kit. Either way, I am healing, and I just took a colocynthis because it makes sense.

Panser, thanks for the clarification that you don't always need to have a perfect match for acute remedies. That helps explain why I have been confused by my pendulum at times. I think I need to ask more specific questions in the future. I tend not to ask it much, just think of the person I am testing. Maybe if I ask a specific question, things might be clearer.

I appreciate having this place to discuss things.

hello mombh! look forward to discussing with you.

The redness went away with the first dose and he fell asleep. then the situation cropped back up again and you dosed-once again the redness dissipated and he felt more content. Perfect way to handle it IMO.

The way you get in to trouble with remedies is giving it often when it's NOT needed. As long as it's needed the body will use it. That's how I see it, anyway.

The red cheek returning is a warning. I wouldn't dose (personally) until he seemed uncomfortable. A red cheek is nothing more than a red cheek without any complaining.
Perfect, that's what I've been doing.
Thank you!

Where's barefoot mama these days?
post #183 of 864
IN the process of moving basically across the country. I think she arrives next month? But then she has to get settled with all her kiddos. I'm guessing she'll be scarce into the new year. But we can send her lots of love and happy moving vibes!

Wow. barefoot mama, wherever you are right now.
post #185 of 864
Ok mamas, I need some help. I was going to post about a couple issues I'm having, but I'm putting that off and need help for DD first.

We've had a lot of food reactions lately, and I don't know if we're still having one, or if her gut is so torn up from the latest reactions that everything is just causing irritation. But I can tell she is in a lot of pain, and I need some help to get her through it.

Symptoms in the past week:
- she wakes a couple times a night, crying (seems uncomfortable). She tosses and turns all night (even falling out of bed), can't seem to find a comfortable position. She will NOT tolerate a blanket of any kind being on her.
- she has a small amount of mucus and blood in her stool, and is sometimes gassy
- her reaction when she's in pain is to hurt herself and others- she will slam her face into the floor, hit, kick, bite.
- she does NOT like touch when she's in hurting mode, but will eventually settle (usually) and let me rub her back or stomach
- we've had 2 new foods show up as IgE allergies after eating them for MONTHS. I don't know what this means except that obviously we're not going in the right direction, healing-wise.

I'm not sure what else to list.... We were going to a homeopath, and he was giving her medorrhinum as her sim____ (you know... ), but we can't afford to keep seeing him. So I'm looking at using acute remedies to at least alleviate some of her pain, and hopefully aid healing.

Thoughts?

Also- I really need to get a book and a kit and start learning this stuff myself. If you could buy one (affordable) book that would cover the basics of baby/family care, which one would you choose?

TIA!!

Well, if it's *any* help med. sounds like an excellent remedy. However I agree that you may want to use something acute right now. What about chamomilla?

I also have excellent luck using flower essences as well. I love using them alongside remedies. That along with a castor oil pack is what I'd be doing. I would target digestive stuff with flowers like crowea, paw paw and bottlebrush. There are others...but that's a good place to start looking.

In terms of books, I really like Practical Homeopathy for at home use. Another good one that encompasses several modalities is Your Vital Child. It has suggestions for herbs, acupressure, supplements, remedies and EO's. It's a pretty good book.
post #187 of 864
Thanks PB!! I actually have some chamomilla on hand, so that sounds like a good place to start.

As far as the med... I know that it's not a good idea to dose yourself, but when it's reeeeally obvious that the last dose has worn off (it's been months) is it ever appropriate to take another dose of the same remedy/strength as you had before? He had her on med 30C for a while, and when she was still showing symptoms (after doing med for a couple months) he switched her to apis. It wasn't always obvious to me that the med was doing anything, but it was VERY obvious to me that the apis did nothing. We do use apis whenever she gets an IgE reaction (hives) and it works great, but in terms of long-term healing, I didn't feel like it was right for her.

Speaking of self-dosing (and much less important than CS's concerns), it would be a bad idea for me to play with calc carb for myself, right? A lot of the calc carb stuff fits me, and I can see the negative tendencies waxing and waning at times. But I'd be messing with something I don't understand well enough, right? Is there a way for me to learn enough to not be dangerous, or is this just something that _really_ I should find a professional for?
post #189 of 864
Huh. Did he ever go higher than 30C on the med?

You are asking the wrong person if you are trying to be cautious! I would without hesitation dose again. If you don't see anything then you can try something like chamomilla. I wonder though about going up with the med...

I would certainly do a castor oil pack though. No question. They are amazing for gut healing, I can't think of anything better, really.

Also there is a specific blend of flowers that seem to do wonders for allergic kids in terms of calming the reactions. The basic ones can be bought as a blend, but there are a few others that I tend to throw in too. Either way, that's an option.

As an aside, ds2 has a few anaphylactic reactions, and it was med 1M that allowed us to avoid the epi-pen. Such a great nosode for allergic kiddos! And it's funny....a major distinguishing factor in med is the love of oranges-though they can't generally tolerate them. Ds2 adores clementines, but they irritate his genitals so much I have to hide them! He's such a med kid!

are you asking me as a friend? do you muscle test?
post #191 of 864
I don't think he did. The only dropper I can find from the med (he did liquid) is a 30C. I know for mine he went up to 200C, but those were pellets that he mailed me. I'm pretty sure we never did pellets for DD.

Thanks again- you always have a way of reassuring me. I think I will redose (and maybe order a 200C?), and do some research on castor oil packs (never done one .)

PB, since you're here and stuff.. I want to ask (even though it's OT)...
What is the difference between using FEs and aromatherapy? Are FEs used internally? And is aromatherapy an energy medicine?

DEFINITELY look into castor oil packs. They are darned near free and SO beneficial. The actually promote healing by drawing macrophages into the intestines. They are also amazing at lymphatic drainage and are anti-inflammatory. Really if you could do only one thing, this should be it.

I personally would go up before I moved on. I would use the 30C first and see what (if anything) happens. It may be that the 30 did all it could do and now it's time for a higher potency. That's how things generally work for me anyway.

FE's are used internally as well a externally. There is no smell, and they function "similarly" to homeopathy. Aromatherapy is not energetic (the way I would describe it though some may disagree) and can have side affects. There are many EO's for instance that could be damaging to pregnant women....not the case for flowers. Flower are more gentle and far more powerful IMO.

Hi ladies,

I'm new to using hoemeopathy -dd has pinworms and I tried giving her cina. It goes away and then comes back again. She takes 30C twice a day - does she need more than that?

I am so far from being an expert in this, but I will give you my experiences.

If I find that a remedy is working - when I see improvement in the symptoms - I keep an eye on the person and give it again when I start to see symptoms again. Sometimes it can be in 45 minutes, sometimes 3 hours, sometimes 24 hours (although for me that is rare early on in a case.)
So if a person is in pain, or coughing it is clear when to retake it.

But can it be that clear with pinworms? Is there a way for you to be able to tell if cina is working? Don't pinworms just itch at night? Are there other symptoms? I just don't know enough about pinworms to give specific suggestions.

good luck

neck and throat update

I am feeling much, much better. The next morning after taking colocynthis before bed, I had almost no pain. I don't know if it is remedy related or just the time I needed for healing. Either way I am almost 100 percent better.
Just wanted to share - thank you everyone for the support

I expected you to say "he!! no, don't do this!" so now I'm intrigued. And I'm not asking for a binding, official-type answer, so yeah, just as a friend.

I keep thinking I should learn to muscle test, I just haven't done it. I definitely believe it can be accurate, I haven't looked into the specifics of what to do to actually try it for myself, and I'm not sure I'll get it right. Our old chiropractor (old city) got things _mostly_ right for me and the kids, but I think he missed one type of reaction, and I'm assuming he wasn't thinking broadly enough about all the ways a food can mess with a person. And actually, the chiro who took over his practice after he moved missed the same food (gluten) and I know it's bad for me. So I guess the reason I haven't pursued this is because I don't know how to figure out if I'm asking well (except trial-and-error, of course).

M2S--meant to say yay! You're an inspiration to me in figuring this stuff out.
