Shana, you’re back!

I like having my picture in the ezine! Where’s Kelly?

She’s sick!

Isn’t she supposed to get sick BEFORE the ezine comes out?

You’d think she’d know the schedule by now….

What are you going to do for a case?

Luckily, Shana, I’ve saved some of my cases for emergencies like this one! This happens to be one of my favorite cases! You know, nothing says “homeopathy” like a middle-of-the-night disaster, and this case comes as close to a disaster as you can get! I often say, “What on Earth do people do in the middle of the night when their child gets sick and they don’t know homeopathy?” I can’t think of anything worse! I feel sorry for them, I really do, having to call 911 in the middle of the night…. Here’s a perfect case in point, submitted by our friend Shobi, regarding her son’s attack of God-only-knows-what, at 3:00 in the morning!

Sept. 18, 2007

Well here’s the scenario. My four-year-old son went to bed very tired and woke up at 2.45 a.m., not just crying but screaming and crying in pain–a forceful, angry cry. Holding his head, he was shouting in pain. It was a horrible kind of scream. When I touched him he was burning up. A dry kind of heat. All over. He kept telling me that the pain was so bad he couldn’t hold on. He wanted me to hold him, then he would scream even louder that it was worse. He wanted me to put pressure over his eyes and this helped a little but then the screaming would begin again. So I asked him to hold on and checked my repertory and very quickly and decided on __________. He was so upset and in such pain that I decided to match the strength of the pain and discomfort with a 200 instead of a 30c. In literally a few minutes he calmed a little and then started vomiting. He cried but not the loud angry cries. Soon after the vomiting he settled down and went to sleep for the rest of the night. No pain, no fever; and woke up this morning like none of this ever happened. So there you go. Thank you ______________ 200c!

Well, gang, what do you think it is? Send me an email and let me know ([email protected]), the answer will be in next month’s ezine.
