You can not have missed all of the press that Ebola virus has been given in the last two weeks. It seems that everywhere you turn there is more fear being spread through the main-stream media. I felt it is important to address some of the issues around Ebola and how homeopathy can help.
Ebola is a virus in the Filoviridae genus of viruses. There are five strains of this virus and four of them are transmittable to humans. These strains were first identified in Africa in 1976 near the Ebola River in what is now called the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since then there have been several outbreaks over the years with up to hundreds dying from the disease. This year alone there are over 4,000 known cases and upwards of 8,000 suspected cases. The sudden rise in infection has caught the attention of the world.
The virus is a bundle of DNA that can attach to a cell, breaking the cell wall down, injecting its DNA into the cell to replicate. As the viral load count goes up in humans the...
The disaster at Fukushima is a global disaster. It is amazing to me that the interest in this is so minimal. Possibly it is the nature of radiation because it is silent, and can't be seen, smelled, tasted, or felt when the exposure comes in the form of nuclear fallout.
I also have another idea that is based on the principle of normalcy bias. Normalcy bias is the mental state of people entering a disaster. It causes people to underestimate the possibility and the effects of a disaster. People with normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something that is unfamiliar. They tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible. They will tend to infer a less serious situation from any ambiguities in warnings.
Due to the fact that the Fukushima disaster is not being reported with the mainstream media and a normalcy bias existing within the population, it seems that it is not on many peoples minds. There is limited research being conducted and our...
It is with great sorrow and concern that I write this today. I am sure it is not new news about the disasters that have fallen upon Japan. Three monumental disasters have happened all at once. The forth largest earthquake ever recorded is bad enough. But the 10 meter high tidal wave was equally devastating. Then to have severe damage to 6 nuclear reactors as a result puts the devasation over the top. As I write this the situation around the nuclear power plants is still out of contol. All disaster response actions are without precedence to prevent a meltdown. There is no play book for the situation at hand. All emergency plans have been scrapped and now there are about 100 people doing the best they can in a very dangerous situation with very high levels of radiation. The situation is not stable by any means.
Radiation is one of man's great nemisis. You can not see it, hear it, feel it, smell it or taste it. It is silent. But it is deadly in any great quantity or...
When Hahnemann started to experiment with dilutions and potency he used the 10X dilution (1 to 10 dilution) in creating the potency. He found that his medicines were equally as powerful if diluted to the one to one hundred dilution ratio or C potencies. After having sensitive clients who would have severe aggravations he was perplexed as to how to help them. In the final edition of the Organon he described the LM potencies. These have been diluted to the 3C potency and then after this to the one to 50,000 dilution. With all of his potencies he did succussions after each step of dilution. He described the LM potencies as very strong, yet gentle. This has been my experience also.
I rarely prescribe the X potencies except in cases of very gross pathology. These are cases of infection or acute inflammations. I find them to work well at this acute level.
I prescribe the C potencies in the low range (6C,9C and 12C) on a daily basis in starting most...
Iatrogenic (by medical intervention) causation is one of the leading contributors of illness and the maintainance of disease in the world today. Between vaccination, antibiotics, drugs and surgical intervention more people are being made ill than from any other cause. I recently came across an article "Death by Medicine" by a group of doctors (Gary Null PhD, Carolyn Dean MD, Martin Felman MD, Debora Rasio MD, and Dorothy Smith PhD) that explained quite well the effects of medicine on the individual. Unfortunately the findings are from between 2000 and 2003 and are not current being nearly a decade old now. But they are very telling of how dangerous the allopathic approach is. Here are a few of the findings.
When I am teaching Students, I emphasize demonstrating effective strategies for case taking. Learning how to do Homeopathy correctly and avoiding common mistakes, will lead to your great success. Here are a few common mistakes some Homeopaths make:
It is easy to become complacent and prescribe favorite medicines when being a homeopath. If we are lulled into a stupor seeing many cases they may all seem to have similar themes and therefore similar remedies. Be very careful when prescribing to treat the person and not the disease. As well we should be very careful in selecting remedies that fit the case rather than remedies for similar cases we have seen before.
In Aphorism 257 of the Organon Hahnemann made it clear we should take great care not to develop favorite medicines; " The true physician will take care to avoid making favorite remedies of medicines, the employment of which he has, by chance, perhaps found often useful, and which he has had opportunities of using with good effect. If he do so, some remedies of rarer use, which would have been more suitable, consequently more serviceable, will often be neglected."
We must select very good rubrics for the case and understand what is really asking to be healed. In addition...
Most tropical and subtropical areas in the world have mosquitoes that can carry the single-celled Plasmodium parasite that causes Malaria. It is one of the most common and deadly diseases for mankind. There are between 300 and 500 million people infected with this disease and 1-2 million deaths annually as a result of Malaria.
The cycle of Malarial infection begins when a female mosquito bites a person with Malaria. The mosquito ingests the blood that contains the Malarial parasite. Once inside the mosquito the parasite reproduces and multiplies. When the mosquito bites another person the parasite is injected into the body. Once inside the parasite migrates to the liver where it multiplies again. Typically the parasite reaches maturity in 1 to 3 weeks where it migrates to the red blood cells, eventually causing the red blood cells to rupture.
Once the cells rupture the parasites are released and suddenly the person develops chiil and fever. The reproduction cycle and rupture are...
Yesterday was Valentine's Day. This day is celebrated on February 14 of each year in commemoration of Saint Valentine. It is traditionally a day that love and affection is celebrated between intimate companions. As with all of the emotions tied up in lovers there is an equal possibility for pain and suffering to happen when love becomes disappointed.
There was a dark comedy movie released a few years ago called Valentines Day. The movie tracked several people and couples showing their triumphs and failures in love. In the end love prevailed, but the suffering of all of the individuals made for good drama. It was quite representative of the trials and tribulations most people go through to finally find love in their life.
There is probably not one person on this planet who has not experienced disappointment in love. Real love is an action and not a feeling; the ego mind so wants to believe all of the emotional feelings of the heart, that when disappointment comes, it is very...
Fear is a big section of our Repertory. Why do you suppose that is? I think it is because our human nature tends to show our separation from G-d through this primary emotion. If we were to be in the graces of love and without ever being in fear, then we might say that there is no spiritual basis for the expression of dis-ease or suffering. But we do experience fear and no one escapes this. It is the quickest way to leave our truth and believe in the untruth or falsness of our expereince.
I have an acronym that reminds me of the truth about fear. It is F=False, E=Evidence, A=Appearing, R=Real. False Evidence Appearing Real. This really does explain fear. Fear in the Websters Dictionary is; an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by expectation or awareness of danger. Anxious concern. dread, fright, alarm, panic, terror, trepidation.
Homeopathy often uses fears as a way to help define the energy of a person and understand what is asking to be healed. It is the most common of...
