So, how did we do? You can see by the vote count below that not too many people participated but those who did were not fooled! The overwhelming majority went for our winner, Colocynthis! Maryam from Pakistan was right on target when she said:

Hi Elaine!
Hope you are fine,
I feel good to contact you after approximately one month.
My answer is Colocynthis for the striking symptoms SHARP PAINS IN ABDOMEN WHICH COMPELLS THE PATIENT TO BENT DOUBLE.
Hope I am right.
Maryam from Pakistan.

Thank you Maryam; yes, you are right!

Our friend Eva not only got the answer right but knew which remedy I gave first–Nux Vomica! I decided on the basis of this that Eva is my twin, separated at birth! I have since confirmed this by verifying the following: My favorite color? Green. Eva’s favorite color? Green! Next: I have confirmed that Eva and I both like the Rolling Stones!!!!! And finally, Eva has a kitchen, and I have a kitchen! Coincidence? I think not!

Now, was it enough getting the remedy right in this case? Noooooooooo!!!!!! Because it aggravated!!!!! Is this a good thing? Nooooo!!! Unavoidable sometimes, yes. But should people have to suffer when there’s something you can do about it? So, the Aggravation Zapper is a very important tool for the homeopath! Wouldn’t you rather impress people than have to apologize? You know what’s great about the Aggravation Zapper? It only antidotes the aggravation, not the remedy! Now I’m going to explain this again very quickly: Take one pellet or drop of the potency that aggravated, drop it into a medium or large disposable cup of water, turn on the cold water faucet, dump out the cup–yes the pellet will be dumped out too–refill, dump out, refill, dump out, refill, dump out, do this a number of times, 10 times for example, and then have a sip. For more details on this method, see “The Aggravation Zapper”:

Shana, who are our winners?

Our winners are…..

Maryam, Eva, Lucio, Sebastiano and Anirudh!

Congratulations, everybody! Oh! That reminds me! I’m the Homeopath In The Hot Seat next month!

You better start studying then, Mom!

Good thinking, Shana…. See you next time!
