I don’t write very often about homeopathy, mostly due to the misinformation regarding it and the difficulty in understanding the mechanism of action. I will attempt to make the mechanism of action understandable While highlighting a very interesting case.
This fall, a lovely grown woman presented in my office for an appointment after finding me on line and reading my blog. I noticed her head and hand trembled as she shook my hand.
Her chief complaints were painful urethral spasms. She had a long history of seizure disorders and had trembled for years. Her OB-GYN was pressing her for a sling procedure for her bladder and was recommending a hysterectomy.
Her history was significant for suppressed anger, psychological trauma and social phobia. Her seizure disorders had begun several decades prior after being placed in an institution for her “rage”. Her parents placed her in an institution when they couldn’t deal with her during a time it was still possible to “put away” just about any teen that was seen as a “behavior problem”.
Over the years, she developed a life for herself, playing music, marrying and having children but her seizures never abated. She had been on seizure medications for “atypical” seizures as well as Pettit Mal. Her shaking had developed over the last several years as well as her painful urethral spasms.
She was socially phobic and aside from her family, did not socialize or like to go out.
She had a very sweet and pleasant nature and was very likable.
All of the above; the spastic nature of the complaints, the sweet disposition, the social avoidance all led me to the homeopathic remedy Cicuta Virosa.
I treated her with Cicuta and used my RITM SCENAR device on her in the office. The SCENAR device helped calm down the autonomic nervous system right away and by the time the treatment was over, her shaking had stopped.
At her two week follow up, no seizures, no urethral spasms. She had some pelvic discomfort and came in for another treatment.
At the next two week follow up, she had no pain, no spasms, no seizures, no shaking and felt great. We devised a plan to take her off her seizure medications and I sent her to Pilates for pelvic floor strengthening.
Her surgeries are no longer necessary and neither are her medications.
While it’s difficult to fathom the mechanism of action in homeopathic remedies, imagine this: charcoal and diamonds are chemically identical, they are both made up of the element carbon. Man-made diamonds are produced by introducing hydrogen molecules to a carbon source (typically methane) and placed under extremely high pressure. The result is diamond, all carbon but impossible to produce without the addition of hydrogen.
While there is not any measurable hydrogen in the diamond, it is impossible to produce the diamond without the hydrogen in the mix. Thus, the hydrogen is imparting some structural information to the carbon molecule. This process is called epitaxy.
While homeopathic remedies in their higher potencies do not contain the chemical constituent for which they are named, they do contain vital information imparted from the active ingredients from the “mother tincture“.
