INDICATIONS FOR REMEDIES GIVEN

FOSSIL RENAISSANCE CREAM

The Fossil Renaissance remedy is a complex homoeopathic remedy, made from five fossils:

The idea of combining five fossil remedies came to me as a result of Dr Harling’s teaching that combination remedies worked better if three or five were combined together. I asked Ainsworths Pharmacy to combine five fossils into a cream. I very quickly realised that the combination was very potent, and patients gave very positive comments and feedback.

I believe this is the fossil equivalent of the famous ‘Rescue cream’ from Bach Flower essences, and the Fossil Renaissance cream appears to be extremely powerful. In the early stages of my work with the initial fossils, I realised that the first five fossils were important to the vital part of our human system:

Fossil remedy Helps with
Fossil Echinocorys sulcatus Inflammatory system
Fossil Micraster Circulatory system
Fossil Arborescence Repair system, similar to Arnica
Fossil Ophiopinna Nervous system
Fossil Dichomosphinctes Energy system or vital force
Prescribed remedy   Why the remedy was prescribed What symptoms was each remedy based on
Fossil Ophiopinna This fossil remedy is given for shock after bad news

It helps patients to verbalise their silent grief and shock

It acts on the nervous system and especially the solar plexus and diaphgramatic breathing

“ One of my colleagues in our psychotherapist team committed suicide 6 months ago just before I retired. It had a paralysing effect on me

MONDAY  3 AUGUST 2020

“Hello Martine,
Thank you for all your help with my post covid symptoms. It has been very good talking to you and reflecting on the physical and emotional impact of the virus.  I feel so much better. I’ve been to see my G P who was very helpful and proactive . I’ve been given a chest X-ray and a scan and had a complete ‘MOT’ at Kingston Hospital. All very positive. Everything is clear. They found some scaring on the left side of my lungs but nothing to be concerned about. Best experience of GP and hospital I’ve ever had. I think your suggestion of asking for what you want played a part in this.  I’m having an antibody test this week. Also I’m going to be offered respiratory support. They certainly seem to have upped their game in my area. I will be checked again in 6 months. I want to say how grateful I am that you treated me at a time when I was very concerned .
I saw my dentist last week . She had had the virus too and it was affirming for me to compare symptoms. Many people are unaware of the post viral impact.

I went to my tai chi class this morning with some trepidation but it was okay. We met in a local park. I was pleased to see my fellow students were well and, to be honest, alive. I hadn’t been to the class since mid February. My tutor Chris was great and also aware of the post viral symptoms. I’m going to see if my body will work to support me now.
I’m aware that I may have dips in my heath but I’m going to see how I go. In a way being retired and then bring I’ll has been exhausting and I need to start playing and enjoying myself. I’m on a small fixed income now I’m retired, so won’t be able to afford to consult you. I’m very moved by what you do and your perception and intuition have been beneficial to me.

Thank you
