I have taken my constitutional remedy but had a tetnus shot a week later. Does that make it ineffective?
Oy vay! Here we have a perfect example of what’s wrong with vaccinations AND high potency constitutional prescribing, all in one sentence! Let’s start with high potency prescribing: The high potencies, by and large, are for intense presentations, like an Aconite fever or a Belladonna headache. The idea is to match the force of the complaint with the force of the remedy. Acutes are generally very intense and require high potency remedies to neutralize them. Chronic cases, however, are often of low intensity and are better vanquished by a 6C three times a day, a 12C once a day, or an LM/1 once a day. Yes, the potency has to be raised at intervals; but, starting low and giving daily doses allows you to keep track of your case, which is exactly what this questionner is unable to do! He doesn’t know if his Tetanus shot has interfered with his constitutional remedy. If he were on a daily dose, he would know; OR, it wouldn’t matter because he’s going to dose again tomorrow anyway!
As to the second point, has the remedy interferred with his Tetanus shot? I doubt it, and I would have to ask, why are you getting these things when you’re obviously into homeopathy and you know that we have remedies for things like puncture wounds–Ledum and Hypericum! We’re homeopaths, we’ve written the book on vaccination, we’re the LIKE CURES LIKE people! We’re the ones whose whole medical system is based on the vaccination principle; why would you go to a pretender-to-homeopathy and be treated for possible tetanus using crude tools and inappropriate methods? Now you know what? You need a remedy to protect you from the tetanus shot! Try Ledum 30C. If you were on daily low doses, you’d be able to treat acutes like these as they come up without having to worry, “Am I interfering with my constitutional remedy?”
