Every cure need be at least as bad as the disease it is the cure of, yet it need not be so long lasting as diseases were. “The cure”, is a known threat within all alcohol abuse, as alcohol is well known to be capable of becoming its own cure, in many cases. Yet did it not have to be a kind of alcohol made out of different original fermented plant products, before it could cure the overconsumption of another kind of alcohol? Alcohol brewing is similar to homeopathic potency raising, but only similar, not the same. Would that mean that becoming alcoholic cures homeopath’s of their profession, or that homeopathy cures alcoholism, one may well ask, and find both facts to be true. Homeopathy uses the same principals as all good medicine work, but it modifies the severity of the cure, by use of a far more extensive range of drug therapies, than humanity previously had access to. What is different about homeopathic medicines, is that we use a different substance each time we have any, such that each drug in use, may only need to be used once every few years, or once in a lifetime, and so no one substance is being repeatedly used, and so our body cannot become addicted or allergic, to any one substance. Yet many folk are hooked on homeopathy, and are lining up for another prescription, at relatively high monetary expense, (at least here in Australia, the cost is often as high as to visit any other kind of doctor), as often as possible. Perhaps patients seek homeopathy simply through having transferred unhealthy habits into healthy habits, that they attend a clinic for yet another prescription, and so in many ways, the fact of the modern discipline of homeopathy practice, can be proven to be in and of itself a cure of addiction. When with young children myself, I wanted another remedy every time I got at all stressed, and only after ceasing to seek such frequent prescriptions as I had been, could I realise the longer term uplifting effect.
I had happened to believe from how I got taught, that there were too many cases in homeopathy, of homeopaths overprescribing specific medicines by giving repeat doses at the wrong time, and of the wrong remedy, and cases of individuals using even more repeats of the repeat doses than were prescribed. Yet what happens is no worse than that abstinence from that particular remedy may become necessary, because the patient’s body eventually is only able to either not react at all, or over react to the medicine now, similarly as in addiction. Even then, when a remedy had been rendered less useful because of repeat doses, if it is clearly indicated again, the homeopath need only prescribe a larger number of repeats now, maybe best in quicker succession than in the first instance, again similarly as with an addiction.
Minimum dose, is the dose at which the brain is still being stimulated, and was not becoming disengaged by either the primary or secondary effect of one medicine. Homeopathy as I learned it, is a therapy of single dose use of each medicine, yet I am prepared to consider what other prescribers may be able to teach me about effective uses of repeat doses. At times, perhaps such prescriptions were allopathic, yet nevertheless very useful for a patient, even in the potencies homeopaths use. What happens when we use any specific medicine repetitively, or addictively, was that gradually, its medicinal effect is reduced, as gradually the Spirit becomes so overly influenced by the medicine, that it ceases to notice the medicine was still being introduced into the body, when it need not have been. Thus the efficacy of every medicinal plant, depends strictly upon the minimum dose for the required effect. I think the case of treating addicts, only highlights how single dose remedies are more beneficial. If the same medicine is indicated two times it a row, it can simply be given in a different potency. The body itself need learn to trust the Spirit matter above itself, and homeopathy is one way of achieving this outcome. The matter always comes back to whether the Spirit is gaining control over the body, or the body had taken a substance as though to endeavour to control the Spirit.
I do not have the science training and career behind me to prove it, but I believe that homeopathy works at the level of genetics, within how genetics define change in which proteins the body is building inside its cells, in accordance with changes of what sections of DNA the RNA was reading. All opium derived substances also have a strong impact on what the RNA reads, since the RNA needs to find a part of the DNA in which it is possible to be surviving use of the deadly poison that opium proves to be. Nobody comes in contact with opium without it making an impression in the DNA, and this is why it can be so addictive, because addicts can hardly have been prepared in childhood and youth, to have expected that to happen. Opium caused its users, (even from only one over-the-counter codeine tablet, or a poppy seed and orange muffin), to dream of times before we got born and after we die, and in that, it can only influence how the RNA reads the DNA. That is also why it always reminds the body of its eventual death, and perhaps why it enabled pain relief, simply because the Spirit knows that the body can hardly be held responsible for what happens before birth and after death. There is a pattern of that mental displacement in time, in which addicts only really notice those parts of the time displacement, which are near enough in time, so as not to be too frightening, yet the displacement is always an extreme one. Homeopathic medicines can provide the RNA with a greater range of options for reading in the DNA what is possible within more-healthy-to-consider time frames, of the patients own life cycle. It is a true means to connect us with our ancestral rights and obligations, whereas, opium’s vice was to connect the body into the diseases and mistakes of its ancestors.
Only few remedies can throw the subconscious mind, so far in time as that was, and so while the mechanism of RNA receptivity is the same, the effect of homeopathy, differs, and dramatically counters the effect of all kinds of narcotics on the body. This maybe why homeopathy can stimulate nociceptin production into enabling self discipline. And in learning so, I have come into an understanding, as the addicts themselves have taught me, that their fact, of being addicts, works greatly to the advantage of anybody who they happen to have befriended, and who is not a drug user. Yet what they themselves frequently fail to comprehend, is that they feed to the rest of us, only those advantages which we would already have had for ourselves, if only we had never needed to witness their addictions in our presence. And as for seeking to gain any advantage at their expense, I am sure my sequence of remedies used for prophylaxis, will emphatically prove the idea of such gain, to be worth nothing. In particular, because addicts tend to have always factored that potential in as the expense to the rest of us, of their company, and factored it upon those of us who endure them. It is only in recovery they are worth being true friends with, but many could tell you that truly recovering addicts are excellent to know in friendship. A “get over it so I can be your friend” attitude is my constant reserve.
My reasoning therefore, in prescribing the sequence of remedies I have done, and publishing it, is to prove to many, that we are all worse off, if we fail to take a tough stance against addiction, whilst simultaneously sustaining actual compassion for addicts whose lives are totally beyond their own control. As homeopaths we can well understand how disempowering it can be to feel too much like a plant, or mineral substance, had caused various emotional and eventful outcomes, and so perhaps our compassion can become greater now; in that I think I may have stumbled into a means of enabling our interactions with addicts to be less detrimental, for both themselves and ourselves. I guess this is my point, that if I was in the shoes of an addict, I might rather find myself under the control of Belladonna, Uvaursi, Oregano, Hyoscyamus, Thuja, Lachesis, Tarentula, Arsenic, and the native medicinal plant (I am not allowed to name until having been formally given the managing dreamtime stories and experiences for), than under the control, of just that one, most frighteningly deadly plant, which expresses all three miasms so neatly, yet so deviously, at its core.
For addicts to receive the homeopathy I prescribed, I had to encourage them not to trust me, but to re-evaluate all their former considerations of what causes, enables, and re-enables, health. Is our health of our Spirit, or of our self, and what was disease if not the delusion of the self, usually about what Spirit is, and so was the dis-ease, a Spiritual dis-ease, or a selfish dis-ease? I instructed them to consider and reconsider and ponder longer upon the meanings I am writing. And to also consider and reconsider similar words as that of “recovery”, like recondition, resuscitate, re-evaluate, reincarnate, resurrect, and revive, and what mean we when we say we can do no better than survive until and unless our worth is well measured in everlasting life. Having to survive becoming resuscitated from an overdose, and/or witnessing a close friend pass away from an overdose, are two of the more common motivations which addicts can say helped them. Therefore just as addicts need pray, so must their therapists. Pray or meditate, or whatever it is you are trained in for peace of mind, just as I will pray to the God of my own understanding, a God of Christian love whose will brought me into the learning of homeopathy, the God who accepts my prayers, for you to accept me as I write, in expressing that I think more of us can do more to alleviate more of the sufferings of addicts. I think that just as addicts must pray or meditate or whatever it is they become trained to achieve of union with the power of love in the mind without drugs, it is that all healers, including homeopaths, need those same skills. That I know my own health is as God is willing, and no more or less, and in this it is through Jesus I know I am saved, and that in my own salvation, am granted the blessing of teaching good health, as well as the blessing of comprehensive understanding of the diseases of this world, is that I am capable of preventing my own fears from becoming entangled with those I prescribe for. Be very sure of the same about yourself, before considering using my sequence with addicts, as their disease can seek to entangle your mind in many false gripes.
In homeopathy we are essentially slightly poisoning a patient, with a substance known to bring on a similar set of signs and symptoms as the patient is displaying as disease, and we do so, so as to stimulate the patient’s own innate capacity to recover. In that we are triggering, or catalysing, a more full and complete recovery from the patient’s original disease. But significantly, in homeopathy, we learn to trust the innate nature of the human organism to cure itself, with the best timed and placed and selected catalysts. This issue of the trust inherent between a human spirit and a the human biological organism, is at the heart of why homeopathy works so well for addicts. The addicts have totally lost all hope of trusting their body, and yet, lo and behold, the body sustains a longer term life favouring response to the homeopathic prescription, which no amount of further drug abuse, could shift. The addicts might hate me for this, but if they do not learn gratitude they could sooner die by their own hand, and that is exactly what angers them. The issue is that, in recovery from addiction, the spleen comes under excessive pressure, because the kidneys are not too well, yet the liver need be kept functioning so as the addict comprehends their predicament within that very predicament. This is why a liquid diet can be important. I myself have suffered an instance of liver convulsions from only the extent to which addicts were blaming me, and so have had to resort to liquids myself often enough. Often enough to want to publish my work, so as no other persons might need experience that degree of sympathetic bodily expression, just to be able to acknowledge addicts psychology to them, that they will listen to me now. This need be understood, that my prescription is emboldened, by skills in exorcism, and I hope it will be that my work as that exorcist, can be depended upon by those who need never feel such terrible sympathy.
Yet beyond only exorcism, in homeopathy we poison ourselves for the patient, then poison the patient, who, for their part, subconsciously, if not consciously also, recognise the poisonous nature of the medicine, but in self recognition of the similarity between that poisonous nature, and the poison of disease are already influencing their own subconscious mind. The subconscious furthermore recognises that the introduced poisonous homeopathic remedy, is in such a tiny dose that it could not cause harm to the body, and so the subconscious mind seeks to know the newly introduced poison, since it is known to be knowable, because the homeopathy obviously knew it to be capable of prescribing it. In assessing the prescription as knowable, (which will oftener depend upon how thoroughly the homeopath assesses the symptoms of the patient, which the prescription is made from), the subconscious mind of the patient, will want to attribute every similar pattern within itself, to that knowable prescription. As though the prescription caused the original disease, and yet, that it could not have been if a cure is to ensue from that medicine. Perhaps the medicine predisposed the body to certain errors, through having worked at the level of switches in the genetics. At the level of determining which patches of DNA get read by RNA molecules entering the nucleus of the cell. And yet scientists teach us that homeopathy is no more than lolly water bearing a placebo effect, the doses are so small. Did it make me vomit because my body is sensitive to such a small dose as that scientists were not willing to acknowledge it exists, or did it make me vomit, because of the psycho-somatic effect of the homeopath’s attention to the prescription? Do I need to know? Or did I get diarrhoea rather than vomit? Actually my question was, will this diarrhoea cure the vomiting like the homeopath told me it would, and it did.
The point is that no matter what goes on in the conscious mind, (and perhaps we are unconscious of which momentary thought passing through the conscious mind was the curative process), in the subconscious mind, the ill health balance tips against the medicine, rather than against the patients living breathing experiencing of life, and the balance of homeostasis in the patient’s body, realigns itself differently, normally into better health if the homeopathic prescription is well timed. Timing is important, for example, under the rubric of delusions of the mind, within the delusion of there being an escaped criminal nearby, and within the specific delusion of that criminal belonging on death row, the only homeopathic medicine indicated maybe a homeopathic potency of opium. But, if a patient held that delusion and was prescribed the remedy whilst also planning an armed robbery, then the remedy prescription itself could prove fatal. That is an obvious point, but oftener the problems of poor timing might not be so obvious, and in general, people who are about to rob banks, would be unlikely turn up at a homeopath’s office asking to be cured of delusions about escaped death row inmates. If the remedy which is needed, is not well timed, normally the patient will show active aversion to that prescription. After all, it is neither the “self” nor the “spirit” alone, which enable good health, but the bodily behaviour, motivated by self regard for spiritual welfare, and spiritual regard for self.
We might be able to define homeopathy in many ways, as in the example of teaching that well placed homeopathic remedy can flick switches in the genetics, enabling that the lessons of gaining immunity learned by our ancestors, get turned on. Maybe medicines are all like little switches, to flick on, and perhaps then flick off again, if it turned out that the dosage was wrong or poorly timed, or perhaps the medicines are like triggers, triggering or catalysing bio-chemical reactions enabling new balances of homeostasis in the biological organism. Or perhaps the medicines open spiritual channels for the subconscious mind to engage in dialogue with our ancestors. And on the story of homeopathy goes, perhaps merely quacking on about the memory of water and electro-magnetic fields around biological phenomenon, and experiments with duckweed in beakers rather than in ponds, and nobody might ever really figure it all out, except in that these medicines clearly work. The testimony to the efficacy of homeopathy is not readily able to be communicated pen to paper. Neither is the cure of self fascination. Neither is the cure of only just wanting whatever it was we were wanting. But neither is homeopathy the cure that never was.
It is normal in homeopathy, to gradually introduce homeopathic prescriptions to the conscious and subconscious mind of the patient, first using those which will have minimal, yet noticeable, impact, and only then move on into use of those medicines which can have a far more profound impact on the whole central nervous system. Yet in many cases, patients whose lives are in crisis, perhaps through the abuse of substances like alcohol, or perhaps through experiencing ongoing trauma, turn up in a homeopath’s office, expecting treatment, and many homeopaths have prescribed for such persons, never truly knowing what the longer term effect of the medicine will be, among those patients who never, or seldom, return for follow up treatment. In such cases, sometimes it hurts to prescribe the hard hitting psychological punch medicine in the first instance, but as homeopaths have found out, the medicine’s work may be ongoing for many years thereafter, and if only one homeopathic medicine is ever taken, perhaps best it be the exact right one, even if that is going to make a patient’s life more difficult in the short term.
