That was another question I have - how in the world do you get a pellet into baby's mouth without touching the baby's mouth or the pellet or both? I know it's a big no-no to touch the pellets, but practically speaking...... I have.

Incidentally, I thought people might be interested in this - about 15 years ago I was the office manager for an MD who specialized in homeopathy (he's now deceased unfortunately). Wish I had paid closer attention! But, he had a very unique way of practicing (or at least I think so). He would meet with the patient, talk with them about what was going on, examine them if necessary and then prick their finger to get a blood spot on a piece of paper. He'd then go to his office and dowse over their blood spot to determine which remedy and dosage was appropriate for them. And then he'd prepare the remedy using a Radionics machine - I don't know much at all about Radionics but he had cards for each remedy that had a certain pattern on them, circular in nature. You'd put the card in a slot on this box and then put a glass vial of water in the box (no lid) and the water would get imprinted with the vibration of the remedy and the strength of it. It was very cool. And no, the vast majority of patients had no idea this was how he practiced.

I'll never forget one patient who was trying so hard to get his insurance to pay for the remedies. He called to ask if someone from the insurance company could come back and watch how the doc prepared them (not knowing how he did), so they would know they were legitimate. I can only imagine how that process would have gone over with them

I don't think there's an issue with you touching the baby's remedy at all. You are, in fact, still a part of their energy system. Or rather, they of yours. I wouldn't touch the other pellets in the vial, but in terms of what's going in the babe's mouth? A non issue in my opinion.

From DH: Amy feels absolutely terrible -- help!

My lovely wife Amy needs your help. She describes it as: "a headache that has moved from the back to the right to the front, currently it's on the right"; "nose is stuffed up but not running, causing me to mouth-breathe"; "thrown up once due to too much stomach acid"; "feeling nauseated again but food is totally unappealing"; "taking small occasional sips of juice-flavored water, which is comforting"; "my throat was very sore with lots of mucous at the base"; "several remedies this morning helped: calp, lach, and ipecac. When I breathe out, it feels like my throat's on fire, though the pain is not that bad. I have a fever and lots of chills. I only want to be deep inside blankets burrowing my head.I'm achy when I don't move; I feel a little better when I move my limbs, but it's too difficult. I'm very weak, I need help to go to the bathroom. I'm feeling weepy and vulnerable. I would prefer not to be alone, unless of course it's my 3-year-old jumping on me, I would rather not that! My boys watched nine hours of cartoons today, a new record. I prefer to keep my eyes closed. When I have the energy, I will retest the above remedies.
Any other ideas?"
DH again. Thanks for any and all help you can give, she's miserable.

Oh Amy , wish I knew something to offer you
post #265 of 864
Amy,
I know you know I'm no expert but something is telling me ipecac for you and has been for a few days. I actually had to restrain myself from pming you this morning and asking if you were ok and if you were taking ipecac... just for no reason out of the blue. Do you have 200c?

Wow JR that is so cool. I tested yes for Ipecac and was able to sleep a little . I don't have 200c but will up my intake of 30c. I no longer have chills. I'm very hot which I think is good.
post #267 of 864
I saw this WAY too late, I'm so sorry! I had my computer shut down very early last night and was running around this morning. Can we get an update, mama?
post #268 of 864
Ipecac helped quite a bit with nausea and vomiting also with chills. This morning pain was different my sore swollen throat affecting how I sound swallowing is painful and so is moving neck. A heating pad is comfortin. Deep muscle aches improved with colocyn and mm suggested following up with staphysagria. Pendulum said yes. Still have aches but more shallow feeling.
Overall doing a bit better cooking smells are turning my stomach blah. Still feel very bad and weak but not weepy.
Nose still stuffed up causing mouth breathing. White tongue.

I've decided that I really need to get 200c remedies.

Eta: I am able to think and communicate, although painfully.

Bryonia was a no.
post #269 of 864
I guess we're getting to see a case in point of when a deeper remedy is needed.
Amy. I hope you're feeling better soon.
post #270 of 864
I am doing a great deal better today. I am able to walk around and I just took a shower.
I am wondering if I over did taking some remedies last night and proved them. Merc V and Puls both came out as yes. I wasn't sure which one to take and wasn't getting a fast response from either, starting in early evening. Within a 5 hour range, I had taken Merc V twice and Puls twice. I noticed that I would wake up in a panic because of sleep apnea-like issues. I was really freaked out. Afraid to go to sleep again. I wasn't able to breathe well because I had so much mucus in my throat and my eyes started draining icky stuff. I was much worse that a few hours earlier. My DH suggested I take some aspirin for the pain. I decided to try it, so I could swallow and remove the mucus and be able to sleep. I was able to sleep and I am doing much better this morning. Still quite a bit of pain and inflammation in my throat and ears, but not to the same degree as yesterday. With effort, I can swallow.
I am walking! yeah!

Amy- what a scary night! I'm so glad you're feeling better today.
post #272 of 864
I would love to join this thread I have read to page 6 but I need to go to bed great info so far.
I really started using homeopathy earlier this year I have taken a few classes and learned alot.

I have used apis with great results a bunch of times this summer.
Also have used arnica alot this summer and it worked awesome.
I get car sick some times and I have used Nux to help with that.

SO far I love having more options to help myself and my family but it is very over whelming so I think this thread will be a great help.

Amanda

I have been slowly improving and was able to eat food yesterday which was nice.

This afternoon I started feeling a little odd. You know the way you feel when starting to get sick? A little tingly, slightly out of body feeling, hyper sensory sensitive. My coughing has changed. I am now feeling a little woozy. I am worried about a secondary infection. I just took extra bit d, just finished my clo, vitamin c, b12.

I want to use some homeopathy but not sure what to use. Off to sit and think.

Eta: well that didn't take long, aconite is the one.

Can we talk a little about what a polycrest is?

My mm states the following for arsenicum:
Arsenicum is one of our most important polycrests, and is therefore to be used both before and after nearly every other remedy in our homeopathic pharmacy.
post #276 of 864
Hey friend.

A polycrest is simply a remedy that has many indications. So a top 50 or top 100 kit would contain all polycrests....remedies that have a wide body of knowledge, research and provings behind them and address many different conditions.

Arsenicum is a great example. It's an excellent acute OR constitutional remedy. It has indications for fevers, food poisoning, bronchitis, flu, pneumonia, headaches, cancer, asthma, anxiety, weakness from blood loss, hayfever, digestive complaints, canker sores, sore throats, depression etc. the list truly does go on. It's a remedy I wouldn't want to be without. In fact, I just recently used it in ascending potencies to keep my mother out of the hospital.

I just wanted to say I am really enjoying this thread. Recently I have been exposed to the power of homeopathy. I have casually used it in the past but I am working with a homeopath presently and I have had such immediate, incredible reactions to it. I had a two plus year finger nail fungus that was so painful. We farm so my hands must work. After trying every thing short of pharmacuticals I went to my homeopath. Within 3 days it was completely gone. I can't express how revolutionary this was. I was not expecting complete healing support from homeopathy, I was blown over.

So I really want to expand my understanding and knowledge to support my families health. I am also interested in using it for my livestock, horses and our pets. I have used pulsatilla for mastitis in cows with great results but my toolbox is definately not full.

I am also nervously traveling to central america in a month with my family, including my non vaxed 2 year old and I am newly pregnant. So I am building a travel first aid kit. Any suggestions?

Thanks for all of your generosity with this amazing knowledge. I will probably be hangin out more.

thanks that is clearer. What I thought was being said here (but didn't make sense) was that for every acute problem you have use aresenicum before or after your regular choice. That totally didn't make sense.
What it is saying was that it is so useful for so many different things that you will be likely to be using it that often.

Panser - good for you for keeping your mom out of the hospital. It is not necessary today, but I would really love to read about your process about a particular case. How do you make your decisions? What are you looking for? How long do you wait?

Are there any books out there just describing cases?

It is nice to see some new faces here. I totally feel like I monopolize this thread. I purposely write here about my process so that others might get ideas for themselves. I also hugely appreciate anyone's input.

Update about last night:
I took two doses of aconite. even though my pendulum told me no the second time (head in a bag).
As the night wore on it became harder to breathe. I had a tightness in my chest and a painful burning. Coughing stopped being productive and the pain changed to deeper down. I felt like it was my lungs, but am not sure. I have been so drained from multiple illnesses that I started worrying about pneumonia. I ended up take aresenicum. The picture seemed right. I took it twice throughout the night.
This morning, although weaker than Thursday, the deep burning is gone. My cough is the productive kind I had earlier. I don't know what happened last night. I don't know if Arsenicum helped.
I am really upping my nutrition. I told a friend that and she asked how in the world could I up my nutrition, but I've increased a few things. In th regular world I seem a little crazy, but here, well fairly normal or average. I am just feeling so drained, not emotionally, but physically. I am certainly getting a crash course in homeopathy.
post #279 of 864
gentlecowgirl - isn't it amazing? There have been some extremely acute cases, and some long term problems in my family that have been 100% relieved by homeopathy. This fall alone I have told myself that twice if the situation didn't get better, we would have to go to the hospital, and homeopathy totally solved it.
I wish that it has helped with everything. I am definitely still on the learning curve. Sometimes I can feel frustrated by that, especially when pain is involved. I am working on being more zen about it.

I wonder if there are some special resource for you specificially for animals?

look forward to reading about your experiences.

thanks for mentioning this.
motion sickness is a big issue for me. Did you take the remedy in anticipation of the car sickness or did you wait until you experienced it?
