Amber Cures the Blues

Amber Cures the Blues

I’m one of those poor souls that gets SAD when Autumn and Winter come. I feel like I’m walking in a fog, lost in a fog actually! I’m trapped in my head. All problems seems 10 x worse and I’m counting the weeks till Spring returns. I decided to take things into my own hands and I repertorised Delusion: Lost and < Cloudy Weather. Up pops Succinum Purum (latin for Amber). I took a dose and so far I’m back in my body. My vital energy has returned and feel relatively normal. The homeopathic proving of Amber is actually very interesting. It was conducted by the great Irish homeopath Nuala Eising. Nuala considers Amber to be one of our deep polycrest remedies. Issues of feeling displaced (like immigrants… I’ve actually just moved to a, for me, strange town in Hastings), or not belonging to your family came up. These immigrants sometimes make a fantasy about their homeland, or adopted children can make a fantasy about their natural family. Together with this there is a tremendous restlessness that makes us think of Tuberculinum. There is also a ‘veneration for the sun’ (amber was considered in ancient times to be solidified rays of the sun) which reminds us of SAD that so many suffer. And there is a feeling of being trapped which is interesting as many insects got trapped in the sticky resin that became amber over millennia. So I’m putting this out there in case Amber could be a great remedy for SAD. Please write to me if you have any good stories of using Amber in this way.  ...

WONDERFUL PLANTS!

Wonderful Plants An Introduction to Jan Scholten’s Plant Theory I would like to invite you to attend a FREE introductory webinar on Jan Scholten’s amazing Plant System leading to 3 weekly webinars that you won’t want to miss. Jan Scholten’s theory of the minerals and elements allowed both new insights into remedies in current usage and the ability to predict the profile and themes of any element or salt, even those that have never been used or contemplated before. The result of this has been to allow much greater precision in prescribing and a much greater depth of cure. Now, in his new system of Plant Theory, each family and plant species are classified using the periodic table as its basis. There are many plant remedies in the Materia Medica, but most have very small pictures or just a few keynotes. In this FREE webinar -“Wonderful Plants, -an introduction to Plant Theory” – International lecturer and experienced Homeopath Jonathan Stallick will introduce Scholten’s Plant theory and how he has found using this system is like opening an Aladdin’s cave of treasures. It allows us to treat ‘difficult’ patients where the case seemed complex and the correct remedy elusive. He will show that this system brings out the fuller personality of each plant remedy and it enables us, as with the periodic table, to predict the themes and uses of virtually any plant in existence. This is not empty ‘head stuff’! There are now many homeopaths using this way of prescribing and it is backed up by thousands of cured cases. And the great thing is you can use it...

JS GOING ON HOLIDAY

Hello there, Just a quick note to let you know I’ll be on holiday from 17th February till 7th March. A much needed winter break in Cape Town where I have some lovely homeopathic friends. If you’ve never been to South Africa please do put it on your bucket list. It’s my favourite place on the whole planet. If you love nature you will be in heaven. The famous Fynbos (or moorlands) contains more different plants per square mile than any other place on earth. And the Erica family is particularly well represented. If you have an emergency requiring homeopathy I will still be picking up my emails and should be able to respond within 24 hours. Otherwise I’m back on 7th March and you can book appointments as usual on my calendar app: http://jonathanstallick.com/online-booking/ Have a great time while I’m away and look forward to seeing you soon....
Passed Down Through Time

Passed Down Through Time

It occurred to me recently how often patients come with a problem that is either inherited or left over from an event that happened years ago. Sometimes it can be fairly obvious such as  presenting with recurring bronchial complaints when the parent had TB at some stage of their life. But in other cases it can be quite complex and hidden. I remember a lady some years ago who was presenting with asthma and irritable bowel syndrome. I gave the more obvious remedies but there was no change in her condition. After a few sessions where we weren’t getting very far I asked her if she had ever had a back injury. You see, the nerves from the spine serve every part of the body and if compromised can cause problems not directly associated with the back. Well, the lady in question suddenly recalled falling into a hole in the ground some years earlier and damaging her back. She didn’t have any treatment for it and the back pain resolved on its own. However after that the asthma and bowel problems started.  I gave the lady Hypericum (one of the symptoms of Hypericum is breathing aggravated by foggy weather which is what this lady experienced) and all the symptoms resolved. In other cases old vaccinations can be the cause or a stressful event. Sometimes this stressful event can be in the lives of our ancestors. One well known homeopath is having success treating the horrific wartime experiences in parents that are somehow still causing problems in their children. Too many antibiotics given for infections or inflammations is another common aetiology...
