A Buck Rang at the Door

A useful article about A Buck Rang at the Door.Full details about A Buck Rang at the Door

I saw this patient a few times for anxiety, vertigo and headaches between 1995 and 2001. She received Pulsatilla and Ignatia.

7/04/04 – Doctors found a melanoma under the left calf involving two afferent ganglions.

There are many issues in her life. “My husband suddenly lost his faith, my handicapped son has depression.” She thinks her family carries a curse, that they suffer from witchcraft.

‘strange things have happened. On the 18th July 2002, somebody rings at the door… it was an enormous buck, and I closed the door violently on him.”

“My very large bitch, who was in very good health, became ill in November 2001. She had a cancer. She died in February 2002. I loved her, she understood everything I said.”

Nightmare in 1973; a large corridor with little green men.

On the combination of the little green men, the male goat at the door, the dog who understands everything, I give without hesitating:

Sol-tub-ae 50 000

End April 2004, the tumour is removed. The surgeon said: “the melanoma was in the process of disappearing. It was a regressing melanoma. I foresee no further treatment.”

The wound heals very well.

June 04

Her adoptive father dies. I give her Sol-tub-ae LM

September 04

I am told she is prescribed Lexomil (Bromazepam) by the surgeon. I tell her to stop taking this medicine and give her Sol-tub-ae 100,000.

(PET scan January 2005, nothing abnormal detected)

She does well. When she suffers a fracture, she takes another dose of the remedy. She has no further thoughts of witchcraft.


She was well until a fortnight ago. The psychiatrist hospitalised her psychotic son. She rang the psychiatrist who told her : “bugger off”. “The psychiatrist told me in all honesty that it is “annoying” that there are only chemical treatments to solve people’s problems.”

“I have been very well but I came to see you again because I lack energy.” (since family problems concerning a will.)

She tries to be nice to her husband, hoping he will come back to church with her. “It doesn”t work, I don”t understand, but maybe there is nothing to understand. We don”t talk. I like exchanges. I don”t know anymore.”

May be his problem is so personal that he cannot talk about it? “He is very rational. I think there are things one can never understand.”

If I wish to view this response in the light of the nucleus of this remedy, according to the IAEH, I understand why she considers her husband’s loss of faith to be due to a bewitchment.

She always says: “I am not sure, it is what I feel.”

You have a sentimental faith, your husband cannot discuss his doubts with you if he is a rational thinking person.

– “I wept more over my dog’s death than my stepfather’s. He was mean to me. In the eyes of my husband, a dog is a dog, a man is a man, even if one doesn”t like the man.”

This may well mean he sees a hierarchy in creation, deep inside he believes in a higher value of man.

– “My dog’s love was pure, it was sincere, it was fidelity. My husband does not know how to weep, people who cannot weep annoy me. I prefer people who know how to laugh or cry.”

There are people who see their animal as a person. This appears to be your case.

“Yes, I really like animals. They do not judge you, they love you. They have a special intelligence to console you. It is this special attachment that feels so good.”

Even though she does not get to the point of delirium, she is still within the nucleus of Sol-tub-ae: the animal is intelligent and she doesn”t understand the intellectual demands of her husband.

Sol-tub-ae 50600


She is sad because the hospital rang her to say she needed a new scan.

I explain her that this is part of normal surveillance

“I came to see you because I needed consoling.”

(The scan was normal, 07/11/05

Addendum (Edward de Beaukaler)

I had the pleasure of translating a few human cases that were sent to me by Dr SML Fayeton. I then discovered that she uses dilutions like 12000, 10300, 15000, 21000, 1001 and 12001.

It is unusual to come across these types of dilutions so I asked her what they referred to. This is her response.

Much of my homeopathy technique is based on the study and teachings of Dr A. Masi. He suggested that we use these “intermediate” dilutions to approach the ideal dilution for the patient. A 1M, 10M or 50M dilution may be a good choice for the patient, but sometimes the 1300, 10300 or 12000 is even better suited and will help the patient to improve further.

After some experimenting, I found that the 12000, 15000 and 18000 are the ones that gave me the best results. To simplify the work of my pharmacist I now restrict the use of these “new dilutions” to these three. He makes them for me according to the Korsakow method.

I have no set theory to decide what dilution to use. When a patient is responding well to a remedy I will trial the different dilutions to allow the remedy to do as much as possible of the work it can achieve in this patient.

Of course the “1” (like 1001 and 10001 dilutions) refer to the technique of plussing. Again here I have no fast rule but If a response to one particular dilution was very satisfying, plussing is often all that is needed to obtain further results.
