Apocynaceae: New Moon remedy

I learnt something exciting today. Kenchu drew Apocynaceae (especially Apocynum) and since it is two days before the New Moon, I wondered why. Usually they draw Strophanthus which works on the kidneys better.

I was reading on it, when I realised all the Apocynaceae belonged to the Urticaceae, and the most interesting remedy in the group is one that I haven't tried at all - Cannabis Sativa. It might help those with cataract! Of course there's Conium as well, so more to study, but I've at least placed more in the same group than ever before.

Strophanthus 30
In terms of energy it is amazing how two remedies of the same species react differently. Strophanthus and Apocynum are from the same plant family, yet Strophanthus is energy-rich for healing and Apocynum is quite dead. Both are supposed to help dropsy, but Strophanthus has a reputation for healing the heart and Apocynum is more general.

I'm guessing that for dogs, the heart is the more affected by exposure and exertion leading to the dropsy and the digestive and kidney failure. Can't think of any other reason for the energy difference in terms of healing.

This is one of those remedies that doesn't stop drawing energy in a continuous stream. Homeopaths usually give this as a tincture, not potentized, so no mouth doses of it please. I'll add more as I experiment.

Breaking down the disease: Weather, Seasons and the Moon

The healing order should be: Trauma ---> Seasons -----> Weather ----> Moon

I'm only just beginning to see how to break through that disease complex: using the moon, the weather, seasons and other exciting causes.

1. The moon is a great place to start. The cycle of the moon is a great irritant to a diseased animal. Removing it's influence at key points helps in healing the animal.

2. The weather is another major exciting cause of disease development in animals that have inherited STDS. Weather changes include electrical and atmospheric change, rain, wind, heat and cold.

3. Seasons are another really terrible strain on their diseased bodies and minds. Every seasonal change, winter, spring and monsoon, cats and dogs fall sick and often die - mostly showing symptoms of the disease we call 'distemper', 'parvo', etc. or worsen in disease states like respiratory, digestive or nervous disorders.

4. Another exciting cause is accidents and trauma. The stress of the accident seems to loosen the reins of health and the animal rapidly degenerates into death if we don't find the exact remedies to counter the stress. Just giving Arnica or Symphytum doesn't help. The underlying disease should be countered as strongly so that the animal can recuperate and regenerate to the point of control.

I have struggled to even figure out which miasm might be the exciting cause of my street dogs' diseases: the rheumatism, the digestive problems, the cataract, the breathing difficulty and the dying - the vomiting death, the distemper death, the chorea and paralysis death, the wasting away death, etc. They're all similar - just various degrees of the same disease to my eyes.

Reading Hahneman for the first time in 2001-3 or so, I got hope that there was the possibility of cure for them. But that's the trouble with ideas - 15 years down the line I still can't make book knowledge fit reality. At the start, I thought, "Oh, everything is ultimately psoric, so healing with antisporics is all I need." But that's not how the body heals - antisporics only worsen the situation when the disease is an intangible whole.

For a long time, I thought it was Tuberculosis, especially when Lassie and her children died (2004-5). Then that it was syphilis, when Nuttu was dying (2011-2). But though there are a few similarities, they responded to few of the remedies for those diseases.

Sycotic miasm in animals:
It's only now in the last couple of years that I've begun to appreciate the Gonorrheal and Cancer connection. Still it is a complex that defies intellectual reasoning. You can read about gonorrheal or sycotic remedies, but it doesn't follow they'll work in any simple order.

Free dogs, cats and birds will always have a sexually transmitted diseases. Puppies and kittens and bird chicks inherit the disease. Their bodies adapt to the disease state in different ways to survive. But there's never a stasis - they're always on the verge of breaking down.

Super List of Moon Remedies

Ok, here's my grand list for moon days and remedies I've used over the past few months. I was very tempted to leave out the ones with the scattered days but then left them in just in case they were important and I'd forgotten. I left out the snake and element remedies because I didn't spend enough time testing them across months and I think they're very harsh on the animal provoking aggravations much harsher then these plant remedies. Perhaps there's a niche use for them that I haven't yet reached - maybe when the animal is in better shape than my street dogs, who knows.

I think my entire blog could boil down to one post, and this one.:)

Moon days by Months

The months are quite general, but these are the remedies that drew energy on a particular moon day. The start of a moon cycle for healing appears to be around the Last Quarter (1 days before or after). You can see patterns forming, indistinct as yet, but hopefully clearing up in the next few months.
