Shana, we are finally back to our old format!
So, no more “completely different” quizzes?
No, Shana, the whole thing seems to have backfired! It sent people screaming out of the building!
It may be the best way to clear a room ever devised–better, even, than yelling, “Fire!”
I had no idea! Wow, that IS impressive; I’ll have to try it sometime! So, if we’re back to normal, does this mean you have another case?
Indeed, Shana, I do!
Whose case is it?
Shana, think of yourself as a valued asset to the homeopathic community! Now, it all started just about half an hour ago. You were in the potty…..
Bathroom, mom, bathroom; I’m not five years old anymore!
Are you sure? When did that happen?
Mom! OK, let me help you with this because you’re taking too long! I was in the bathroom and I called out to you and said, “Mom, can eating spicy food give you diarrhea?” And you said, “Yes, it can.”
So, I came running in with a dose of a remedy in the 30C potency.
But it didn’t do anything.
So, I came in again and looked at you. Actually, you were hard to miss; you were completely bent over! Your back was parallel with the floor! I said, “What the heck is going on here?”
And I said I was having sharp pains.
With that, I came back with ______________________200C, one pellet.
It actually made me worse!!!
Yes; and while that would have caused your average homeopath’s head to explode, I knew exactly what to do!
I remember! You said, “This is a job for….THE AGGRAVATION ZAPPER!”
And you said, “What the heck is that?”
Well, what is it?
It’s totally Diane Fuller’s invention! I went to the kitchen, turned on the cold water, took out a medium size disposable cup, filled it with water, dropped in a pellet of what I gave you, _______________________200C, waited a second, then dumped it out and refilled it with water 12 times, then gave you a sip of the 12th cup! It took about five minutes: you straightened up, sat normally, peed, and it was all over, case closed!
Then I went back to watching “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”.
“How The Grinch Stole Christmas”? Hey, you said you weren’t five anymore, and I believed you!
If anyone knows what the remedy was, write to my mom at [email protected], the answer will be in the January, 2011 issue of the ezine–see you next year!
I knew you hadn’t stopped being five!
Mommmmmmm!!!! By the way, I think I’m feeling better. Is it safe for me to eat pizza now?
P.S. I thought about whether or not to even include this, as it has no bearing on the remedy selection; but, what do you do when a case relapses? Well, that’s exactly what happened! A few minutes ago, Shana was back in the bathroom again! I said, Oh no! What to do now? The last dose aggravated, remember? But, I still had the antidoting dose in the 12th cup–I hadn’t thrown it away! So what did I do? I stirred the cup with a straw and gave her another sip. Guess what? It worked right away, no aggravation! On her way out of the bathroom, Shana said, “Can I have my pizza now?”
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:
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.
