Homeopathic Remedy -- Is One Always Better Than Many?
A true homeopathic remedy is just like the
constitutional remedy -- one single remedy that contains answer
to all the problems that the patient now has. But finding such
a remedy is time consuming, so many people opt for creation of
If you know that there are three remedies which cause fibroids of
uterus, why not take all of them at the same time? This works, big
time. If you do not know how to determine the proper homeopathic
remedy, you are free to choose the combinatorial approach. There
are many commercially available mixtures. If you have your own remedies,
you can make other mixtures quite easily.
are some examples that cannot be resolved through the one-remedy-at-a-time
A Homeopathic Remedy for Restless and Painful New-Born
Say you were blessed with a new-born baby
and that he won't sleep when you expect it. He is fussy, agitated...
another night of no sleep coming to you!? You look up the homeopathic
remedy and see that there are several candidates. The two seem most
prominent: Magnesium Phosphorica and Chamomilla.
Phos has two main symptoms: better when bent to double, relieved
under pressure and warmth. The other homeopathic remedy which is
the candidate here, Chamomilla, is indicated when the child is better
and quiets down when carried. Otherwise, the child is irritable,
thirsty, sensitive, complaining... If you are not sure which remedy
to "prescribe", just make a mixture of both and give to the child.
Often just one drop of such a mixture will buy peace until the next
limit ourselves to only remedies? We can make mixtures of three
or many more remedies allright. If the mixture of two does not produce
the desired effect, add another homeopathic remedy, here it could
be Colocynthis, also for the pain in the stomach.
This following mixed homeopathic remedy
will work on states of shock, as well as any condition resulting
theory is that while the person is under effect of the shock, the
flow of blood in the body changes, forcing the blood to overfill
one organ or tissue. Later, some kind of illness will develop in
that part of the body. Most of the time the patient does not connect
the shock with the current illness. The ultimate shock is that of
coming to this world -- of being born, but the shock may come from
many other circumstance. For instance, when somebody died in the
family, after a loss of a dog or a cat or some other house pet,
after watching a horror movie on TV, after a surgery...
are all continually "shocked" so this homeopathic remedy is a must
for anyone. In our context, you can take it after you hear that
you should consider hysterectomy. It contains four remedies, each
of which deals with one particular aspect of shock:
-- any physical shock or trauma; any overstrain which could be a
shock to the body or mind; great mental strain.
-- emotional shock; grieving; great remedy for effects of grief
-- remaining dazed after the shock; loss of consciousness through
any type of shock -- physical, mental or emotional; conditions resulting
-- a homeopathic remedy to quieten the nervous system.
these remedies are in the 200C potency.
enough, Rescue Remedy from Bach Flower Remedies is given in similar
circumstances, and is also a mixture of five different essences.
A very effective combination is to give a person in the state of
shock both of these remedies at the same time. In other words, you
are completely free to join two or more mixtures and form new remedies
from them! You mentally treat them as one remedy for this and the
other for that, regardless of them technically being mixtures in
themselves. The only thing that matters is your intent to make a
new remedy, following a well defined goal.
This can be followed ad infinitum. Suppose
you had a mixture for injuries, consisting of Arnica, Bellis
Perennis, Hypericum, Ledum, Rhus Tox,
and Ruta, all in 200C potency. Treating it as just one remedy,
you could make yet another combination for any shocked condition,
consisting of Injury Mix, Rescue Remedy, and Shock Mix. These would
all be in potency of 50M. Such a remedy -- we can call it Paramedic
Rescue -- could be applied to any injury anywhere in the body, to
a stroke, sudden drop in energy, heavy reactions to an emotional state
and the like.
now get even more interesting. We can again treat it as one remedy
in 50M potency and we can further combine it with the Shock
Mix in 200C potency from which we started it all. This looks like a
vicious circle (we have Shock Mix in two forms), but it really is
not. Arnica 200C from the original Shock Mix and Arnica 50M from
the Paramedic Rescue are two different homeopathic remedies, and
they do not annull each other. Quite to the contrary, using one
remedy in two different potencies makes it only stronger.
this work? It does. You do not know exactly what ingredient cured
but most of the time you can live with that. The only thing that
matters is whether there is a cure or not. When you add two remedies
together, you actually put up their frequences, forming a third
remedy -- a third frequency if you like. In this way you overcome
the basic flaw in homeopathy -- the lack of remedies for all states
the patients can be in.
is yet another reason for creating mixtures -- lack of information
about the remedies. In theory, all the remedies should be studied
quite well, tested on individuals etc. It just is not the case,
for many remedies we know only the main effect on the body, while
the mental and emotional states are not known. Here's an example.
One effective mixture for Post Nasal
Drip consists of Elaps Cor,
Kali Bic, Lemna Minor, Nat
Ars, and Sticta. Our of these five
remedies, Kali Bic is fairly well known, while the others are
not. For Lemna Minor, for example, in Materia Medica we find
that it is used only for post nasal dropping, there is no information
what else that remedy could be good for.
classical homeopathy purists would always like to find that
one elusive and encompassing remedy, while the others are satisfied
with a more realistic approach -- give the patient something
similar enough and let the body sort it out on its own. Both
sides agree that the "singles" approach is the best, and indeed,
sometimes, after the dust of combined remedies settles down,
a homeopath will be able to find the single remedy.
