Diane! Imagine running into you here in cyberspace! What was the likelihood!? Who would have ever guessed?
That’s strange, because when I saw you this morning you said something like, “One day I will come for you. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. It could be when you least expect it… Or whatever’s good for you, who cares.”
I said that? What was I on?! Well, anyway, as you may remember, I interviewed you for the Aug. 2004 issue of the ezine, and buried in that interview was a gem: your priceless “Aggravation Zapper!” Ever since then, my clients have been swearing by it! Clearly, it should not be buried in an interview but should have its own title and its own space so that people can find it! So, without further ado, I’d like to show you why we need to get this out in the open and spreading like wildfire!
A colleague once told me she gave her husband Phosphorus 30C for an illness, and his response was to double over in pain and cry! Of course, she antidoted right away! When she told her practitioner what she had done, he said, “What did you do that for, the remedy was working!” (Grr!!!!) I seriously have to wonder if anybody has read The Organon of Medicine by Samuel Hahnemann (our main how-to book) at all!
Let me explain what an aggravation is:
Picture world heavy-weight boxing champion, Muhammad Ali, getting knocked down in the ring by “high potency” opponent, Sonny Liston. That’s an aggravation!
But Ali recovers, gets up, and comes back swinging, down goes the “illness” (Sonny) and that’s the curative response!!!!
Now, what happens if you keep knocking Ali down over and over again after he’s hurt so that he can never get back up? Similarly, what if you knock him down so hard (as in a single dose of too-high a potency) that he never gets up again? Are you helping him? No, I don’t think so! But that’s how many of us are prescribing! And then if the patient says, “I’m worse now than before!” we make up excuses in defense of ourselves, like, “Oh, it’s good for you!” or, “That’s a good sign, keep taking it!” It’s horrifying to know that people actually prescribe this way.
We have to have some theory, some concept about potency and repetition. We can’t cause harm to people and then walk sheepishly away or make excuses! Speaking candidly, we’ve all experienced the embarrassment of giving a remedy, having someone get worse and not knowing what to say or do about it! But those days are over now because here comes Diane Fuller with her famous Aggravation Zapper, and, Diane, the floor is yours now, let’s hear all about it!
Thanks, Elaine for that marvelous introduction! I am still getting emails about our 2004 interview – many of them wanting to know how to antidote a remedy.
Antidoting homeopathic remedies is such a simple process and it can save so much needless suffering on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, etc. – that I’d like to begin by telling you about one of my first tries at antidoting an aggravation.
I don’t remember exactly where I read about this method, but…
It was in 1994, and I had given a woman 2 granules of Phosphorus 1M which matched her symptoms very well indeed. She was very pleased with the results. There was only one problem. The diarrhea that she had experienced with the cholera she contracted while in India 10 years previously, returned. That was a good sign, we thought, because of Hering’s Law of Cure (“return of old symptoms”). She was going back through her past illnesses and was feeling much better in every way. But after a month, the diarrhea was still there and she was becoming weak from it.
I decided that I had better do something to stop the diarrhea at that point. So, I put 2 granules of Phosphorus 1M into a dropper bottle with some distilled water and vodka and told her to put 1 drop from the dropper bottle into a glass of water and take 1 teaspoon once daily (succussing the dropper bottle before each dose) until the diarrhea stopped. Within hours, she noticed a difference, and by the third day, the diarrhea had gone completely.
Boy, was that confusing!
I’ve simplified it greatly since then.
In fact, one of the most wonderful discoveries I have made during those years is that this method is not only useful for homeopathic remedies, but for “aggravations” from ANY SUBSTANCE (including toxins and allergens) as well.
For example, I have seen people who have had reactions to medications, take a tiny amount of that medication (scratch a few grains from the pill) and after diluting it in a large glass of water and dumping and refilling the glass several times (which is similar to diluting and succussing a homeopathic remedy) before taking a sip, will usually find relief from the reaction. But I am getting ahead of myself, aren’t I?
I’m not sure. But do continue, I think this is all very useful!
Let’s quickly give some specific instructions!
To antidote a remedy, I usually put a granule or pellet of the potency that aggravated into a glass of water (about 10 oz) and then dump and immediately refill the glass, continuing this dumping and refilling until the desired glass is reached. (Yes, the granule will be dumped out of the glass the first time – you don’t have to wait for it to dissolve – the remedy is already in the water as soon as the granule hits it.) Then, take a sip.
Let’s just clarify that the patient is standing at the sink with the cold water running. He has a large cup of water (I would suggest a disposable cup, don’t use the good glassware!)
So, again, to be clear, you’re standing at the sink, cold water on, fill up the cup, drop in a remedy pellet, dump out the cup, refill, dump out, refill….stop somewhere and take a sip! It could be the 6th cup, it could be the 12th cup or the 10th cup, pick one, probably any one of them will work.
Diane, what if you aggravated on a water potency?
If the remedy causing the problem is in liquid form, I would put 1 drop of the remedy into a glass of water (Do Not succuss or shake first!) and continue in the same way as above.
If the remedy is in powder form, put a tiny amount – less than 1/8 tsp of the powder into the cup of water. The idea is to put a tiny amount of the substance into a large amount of water with some kind of succussion to make a homeopathic remedy. The rush of the water acts as a succussion.
I tell people to “turn the tap on full blast” when they are making an antidote in this way, as the force of the water coming into the cup “succusses” the substance while the continued refilling of the cup dilutes the substance. As you know Elaine, to make a homeopathic remedy, you must dilute and succuss.
I had no idea!
Now, the best way to decide how many times to dump and refill the cup is by muscle testing. Otherwise, you must guess at how many cups you need. You could try the 6th, the 12th or 16th cup, etc. If you can’t do muscle testing, just take one dose and see what happens, wait an hour, and then decide if another dose should be taken. We can’t know these things in advance and every person is different.
I hasten to add that 99% of the time, the remedy is antidoted after one sip, but give it an hour.
That’s what I’ve seen too.
If nothing happens after the first sip, you may want to double the number of cups used to dilute the remedy and try again. For example, if you have diluted it to the 6th cup and nothing happened after an hour, try the 12th cup and then the 24th etc. I usually wait at least 1 hour before diluting the remedy again in this way.
This method also works if you have eaten something that you are reacting to.
Can you give us an example?
One woman had eaten some bread that for some reason did not agree with her and she felt very ill almost immediately! She put a crumb of the bread into a glass of water and continued dumping and refilling the glass until she reached the 12th (or whatever) glass and then took a sip. Almost immediately, the symptoms went away.
Amazing!!!! No one would believe that in a million years; but, if it works, it works!
