Homoeopathy – and speed
Not so, my friends! Have cheer! (brief Shakespearean moment there…)
Let me tell you about a case I worked on soon after I qualified (and discovered sadly that four years of study lead to a firm qualification in homoeopathic guesswork ). I am not reporting this case to demonstrate my brilliance as a homoeopath (which as you will see was not the case). But what I saw in this case is definitely one of the reasons I am still a homoeopath today.
A relative slipped and fell, hurting his shoulder badly. I treated with Arnica immediately after the fall and for the following 24 hours, but it didn’t seem to help much. I tried a succession of other remedies, nada. The relative went to the emergency room and was x-rayed. He was told that small shards of bone seem to have sheared off and were partying in the shoulder socket – but they weren’t too sure about that. He was told that within about six months he should get some mobility back in the arm, but it was possible that it could take even longer. They gave him Arcoxia, didn’t give him a sling for his arm and sent him home.
He called shortly after, almost crying with pain. After taking the Arcoxia, he’d gotten an unbearable headache. He asked again if I could try to help with homoeopathy. I looked at the symptoms and gave one more remedy – by that time I’d come to the conclusion that perhaps I’d wasted the previous four years…
I was truly amazed and delighted by the results – it made me appreciate why Hahnemann was so protective of homoeopathy and so aggressive towards those who changed and mistaught the method.
This man had been unable to straighten his arm. He sat, or stood, with his right shoulder hunched up, supporting the arm in a bent position with his other hand. His right hand was curled into a fist held towards the body – either from the pain or because he could not release it.
Literally within 20 seconds of taking the first dose, he was able to open his right hand. Within half an hour to an hour of treatment, he was able to release his right arm. Over the next three days, he regained 90% mobility and use of his right shoulder, arm and hand, although there was still some pain.
I repeated the remedy over the following month, during which the pain disappeared. Some technical details for the homeopaths/students amongst you – I gave the remedy in 30C, using water dosing. If anyone wants to guess the remedy feel free – I’ve deliberately left it out.
Interestingly – around the same time, a woman working in a nearby shop slipped and fell, hurting her shoulder badly. Her diagnosis was similar to that of my relative. She is a musician and this injury came just after she’d set up a series of concerts. She was not interested in trying any kind of alternative treatment. It took her six months of intensive physiotherapy to get back some mobility, even longer to get back to performing again.
I’ve seen other cases of very fast response to remedies since that time, but this stands out in my mind. Sometimes the turtle wins the race because he’s really wearing roller skates.
