Why 3x? ... More Hydrocotyle at 3x

Today I felt itching around the ankles, shins and the prickling of the skin (like pores popping open) which happens when a strong sun peeps through the clouds. I think both these are immunity issues - areas that have a toxic overload and no immune development. Intestines are so connected to the skin and I felt a change in my digestion take place.

In terms of getting a move on in healing, I'm quite bored at 3x, but determined to keep at it forever if I have to since they're drawing it so strongly. I'm so used to remedies drawing for a day or two and then needing a change that this is strange.

I figured out that when Pummi was preparing to die she drew so much from all the dogs and me that we needed those 14 remedies at high potency just to keep our balance - that made a kind of sense. If these dogs hadn't had that, they might have fallen like nine pins soon after. For a few days after Pummi died, Kenchu smelled like her - like he was rotting from the inside. Fortunately he's recovered from that dip in vitality.
I think I might have found an explanation for this Hydrocotyle 3x syndrome -- otherwise why is every dog drawing this potency more than any other? In 'Energy Medicine - The Scientific Basis', Oschman talks about specific frequencies where particular tissues heal (from Dr. Zimmerman's work):
Frequency             Effects
2 Hz                      Nerve regeneration, neurite outgrowth from cultured ganglia
7 Hz                      Bone growth
10 Hz                    Ligament healing
15, 25 and 72 Hz   Decreased skin necrosis, stimulation of capillary formation and fibroblast proliferation
25 and 50 Hz         Synergistic effects with nerve growth factor

I think this might have an equivalent in homeopathy like:
Potency                     Possible areas of healing
3x                             Nerve regeneration, neurite outgrowth (I'd have liked to place skin here)
6x-12x                      Bone growth (since Calc Fluor and Calc Phos work best at these potencies)
12 - 30x                    Ligament healing
12, 30 and 200x        Decreased skin necrosis, stimulation of capillary formation and fibroblast proliferation
30 and 200x, 1m       Synergistic effects with nerve growth factor

Just putting it down so I don't forget the possibilities!:)

Hydrocotyle reactions contd

I feel like I have a calcaria spur between the balls of my left foot. It was so bad at night I could barely walk the dogs - mostly gone this morning. My right eyebrow along the inner ridge has a series of small hard pimples that itch like crazy. The pimples have a grey crust that comes off.

These two reactions came up after Hcot 3x. It's really educational to know how gout feels before you're suddenly dumped into it in old age! And how the dogs suffer when their paws swell up and crack, the poor things. This is probably why Kitpit kept licking his paws as a kitten.

I'm also glad I didn't start with higher potencies as is my usual way. These low potencies are really giving us all time to heal very physical problems that otherwise might get hurried along with the higher potencies.

Hydrocotyle 6 contd. (for Connective tissue!)

I meant to add this as an update on the Hydrocotyle, but I had a lot to say and the post will grow enormously. It's been 3 days of 1 dose each day.
First, my reactions:
I had the loose motion just that one day, itching in the armpits and groin pits, and now itchin behind the knees. Then this morning it was a kind of morning backache that I hadn't had in a long time - a feeling that I can't lift myself off the bed like my spine had no strength. I've had vague itching down the dry scaly skin of my calves, but nothing much else.
Then, my animals reactions:
The dogs are reacting with less itching at the break of the storm overall, and Icy's wounds are healing down the legs, the skin is tauter around the neck. Kenchu's voice is less broken, but he probably needs more doses since his skin is the most affected and he's definitely more itchy than the others.
My kittens - Kitpit had the finest reaction. His liver, which is enormously enlarged, shrank down to normal size (for his body) the second dose. But just as I was celebrating, it's back to its normal enlarged size today.:( Still, there's hope that it will go back to its natural size and normal function one day. Of his surviving 3 siblings, 2 are lost three houses down and haven't come to eat while the black one has less of a hoarse voice when he comes to eat (I haven't seen him yet - he stands on the other side of the wall and mews for food which I throw over blind).

From Clarke:
Kenchu might be improving in the chewing motion of the jaw because of the improvement in "affectations of the trigeminus nerve" which I've never heard of before. I know Zizia helps the same lopsided chewing motion that I called 'chorea' for lack of a better search word.

It also treats "neuralgic pain in external frontal nerve" so that might explain his increased comfort level. Still, not healed enough yet. Maybe he needs a higher potency or more doses. Or another Umbelliferae. I haven't checked.

Icy might be improving because of "sensation as if gases collection into a ball" in the stomach. "Borborygmi in different parts" of the abdomen and "violent contractions of the intestines" and "ineffectual desire for stool" since he's constipated.

My back might fall into the "bruised feeling in all the muscles" though it was very limited and for a very short time or "difficulty in maintaining the upright posture".

The improvement in Kitpit might be from the "Liver, contraction of" and "obstruction of" though I must say there's so little covered of the remedy it's sad.

Conium is the queen of the Umbelliferae and dominates the writing of all those using this plant family, but I feel that Hydrocotyle could be as useful for the dogs, especially for distemper-survivors with neural damage like Kenchu, reaction to the weather and the thickening, blackened skin of immunity-related (neuro-lymphatic) oedema.

----------Update 13/8:
 Kitpit's liver is smaller again! It looks like it is trying to find a balance. My guides wanted me to switch to Hcotyle 3x for some unknown reason. My backache is gone. Icy's swollen ankles have a shine on them - can't wait to see it improve.:)

Hydrocotyle for Connective tissues (may be what I've been lookin for):
Icy's ankles, which are swollen after years of leaping around like a gazelle, might come under Boericke's "hypertrophy and induration of connective tissue" if cartilages and tendons are what he means.

Wiki covers an exciting number of connective tissue besides the elastic ones. All these I'm especially interested in healing: tendon, ligament, skin, cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, gut, and intervertebral disc. And type 3 connective tissue: liver, bone marrow, and lymphatic organs ... wow!

All these areas my street dogs suffer from terribly. Cataract can kill them on the street, tendons affected mean lameness, skin means getting stoned by people, gut means worms and vertebral discs means paralysis.

And type 3 are the most exciting because they're the nuts and bolts of living in the open, surviving TB and disease! If this can improve the liver, the body gets more nutrients from less food; if this improves bone marrow, they'll have less anemia and more rich blood (no more pale, grey skin full of fleas and ticks); and lymphatic organs would bring their immunity up and drain those hard and enlarged glands around their chests, neck and armpits (these dogs look pigeon-chested and obese).

Still a long way to go to see if this obscure remedy does what it claims to do. Always remedies look good on paper, its only in action that I can pick the best. So far even 6x seems to be doing great.

Unsuccessful with cancer

Pummi's death brought back to me all the trouble I've had with cancer in dogs over the years. Her improvement 6 months ago when she was near death was the only success that I can recall - but even that faded (most likely because I didn't know which remedy/s were actually responsible for that improvement - I know that Thuja cm and Pulsatilla 10m were two of them).

I was amused to see the nefarious wikipedia's article on "ineffective cancer treatments" list homeopathy as one. But unfortunately it is true - to date I don't know of anyone who has cured cancer with homeopathy, even though the potential is there.

Cancer moves around too much - destroy it in one place and it will pop up in another.This is one reason that Pulsatilla high worked so well on Pummi - it stopped the movement of cancer for a while and located it in one area (abdomen) which I didn't know how to cure. I know it was the abdomen now because of the blood vomited before she died, but I thought it was in her breasts all along, those growths that disappeared probably reappeared internally. I know that Thuja probably prevented the growths from spreading, but didn't keep the existing growth from ulcerating and washing her insides with blood.

Until I can cure a case of cancer, I won't believe it can be done.

But I read a theory in the New German Medicine by that neo-nazi Ryke Hamer with whom I agree on how shock affects the system. I've seen dogs after accidents waste away - not from the accident, but from a system imbalance that spreads their deeper disease. The shock triggers off a chain of events that can only end in death. I disagree with his anti-Jew statements - I've known jews who suffer poverty and disease just like everyone else, who've had western medicine fail them just like it has failed everyone else. Mary Ann Lederer was a paraplegic friend who was jewish and suffered just like her christian neighbours.

I wish we could all try to heal without our prejudices, but I have so many myself that I have no right to speak.:)
