Epileptic fits are life-preserving?

Ancient has stopped eating (well, eating about 1/5th of his first week) since the fits took off his strength. But now I'm wondering if the seizures are actually life-preserving rather than life-threatening. They all seem connected to the Heart and Solar Plexus chakras - the liver and back of the head are involved for sure.

He's the second animal I've seen survive the fits over time and have less of the symptoms: sleeping into aggravations, moaning and howling, attacks followed by ravenous hunger (but not digested right). The first was Kitpit who was young enough to survive about 7 fits back-to-back after great exposure (probably broncho-pneumonia - sneezing and oppressed respiration)  and being abandoned by its mom. But the fits came up with Rhod, so I had my fingers crossed that it was curative, and it was. For a couple of months her liver was enormous, but her focus came back and she had more normal kitten-mind development. Then Hydrocotyle cured even that enlarged, hardened liver. Today she's a healthy, active kitten.

The week since he was picked up, Ancient would howl and scream, wet his bed, keep changing position restlessly and sleep like the dead. He had gleet, blood diarrhoea and his limbs were stiff and tense. He had the oppressed breathing, but what I thought was a healthy appetite (but it really isn't healthy to eat so much when they're sick in their spine). Then the blood diarrhoea stopped but he began to have his fits (probably brought out by Cicuta 3-6x), one every 12 hours, and he would sleep into the aggravation, aggravation after eating, waking only to howl and change sides.

Today, he's not howling as much which seemed like a cerebral manic state; his eyes are less gummy, the greenish mucus is lighter, he's breathing better, nose not stopped up with thick mucus; he's not changing sides as much, not drinking much water at all or eating more than a handful of rice in the evening. He dropped a section of tapeworm, which he hadn't before. He still develops the aura and tremors that are jaw-clenching and the yanking of his body to a side, but it doesn't last long if I give him Hydrocotyle 12x. Hcot 12 is what also aggravates into these symptoms if I give it while he's sleeping.

One other fine curative effect I've seen (other than no more seizures of the past intensity which was hard to watch) is the flexibility of his spine now. When he came, he couldn't bend it enough to reach his butt. Now he can bend over almost as much as a young dog can.

This is what makes me believe that epileptic fits are curative during homeopathic treatment - they bring up the spinal and brain weakness that allows them to develop a pneumonia from exposure with the thick, green mucus, worms and hardened tissues and membranes which tear and ulcerate internally. Maybe all epileptic fits are curative discharges of chi/ki energy to allow the organism to be functional - like electric eels that gets stopped up with static electricity if you don't give them an opportunity to discharge.:)

I've still got my fingers crossed that he won't die but heal to perfect health. He's licking the Hcot 12 out off my fingers now - shows both awareness and that the remedy is helping. He's not drawing Cicuta anymore - it seems to be an additional support that Hcot needs over New Moon. Most dogs will search my fingers for the remedy if the last dose helped them, however disgusted they are that it's in alcohol.:) Dumi used to systematically chew up my glass 1-dram vials at night, but poor thing, died of her broken spine before I could help her heal her problems.

More when I have an update.

Blackie's 1 mnth old kitten died

Blackie's last kitten died this morning. An hour ago. Eyes glued, difficult respiration, nose blocked, underdeveloped body, large head. Drew Camph 6 at the end, but Hcot 30, 12 and Cicuta 3 repeatedly over 18 hours (since I realised he was dying). It was too little too late.:(

It's like a time-bomb in kittens which explodes when the weather changes. I thought since Blackie had got past the disease in her youth (with Graphites 50m and Causticum) and had one surviving kitten from her previous set, this set would be safe. But I was wrong - kittens born just before the onset of the monsoon are much weaker than those born after or a month before.

It is just a wrong time to mate - mating should have been triggered earlier than that for a normal healthy cat to have immune-developed kittens survive the monsoon changes. I've observed very sick or alcoholic men and women have a similar poor timing to their mating, giving birth to children who, if they survive, have lifelong problems. In fact, I've seen the most diseased men get amorous during the worst, stressful times, get drunk before weather changes and collapse on the street.

I'm guessing that children born during the monsoon (gonorrheal and cancer time) and before the winter (syphilitic and tubercular time) are full of problems as well - the gonorrheal miasm preventing proper nutrition and hardening glands; and the syphilitic and tb miasm leaving respiratory, liver, kidney and bone diseases growing in them. I wonder if governments should make a rule: only mate/baby-make between Dec-Feb and Apr-Jun to save on the future healthcare costs incurred by your children!:) This might be the reason we have 'wedding seasons' in India ... unspoken pressure to breed healthy.

Figured out so far

  • These Umbellifarae are really the most important to heal with. They've got all the characteristics of the lower orders and something extra. That extra seems to be the brain-spinal-neural connection to the physical problem. If you have a respiratory problem, a urinary problem, a heart problem, liver, kidneys, bone, blood, you name it - it has its roots in the cerebro-spinal system. If those roots aren't cleared, the problem is not cleared. 
  •  If we want 'deeper' healing, it isn't in the tissues but in the nervous system and the brain; if we want more 'shallow' healing, that too works through the Umbells.
  • Hydrocotyle and Cicuta are the highest of them; followed by Aethusa. I still haven't worked with the rest enough to know what follows but Sumbulus, Phellandrium and Onanthe seem to be next.
  • I think once we heal these first, we have to move down the branch to the next (like Ailanthus and Guaicum if there's a fever, etc). I haven't got that far yet.

Seizures slowing down

Ancient hasn't had a fit since yesterday, but he's whiny and uncomfortable - there's a kind of aborted seizure (is this called status epilepticus?) that looks like a hiccup or an arrested breath.

The main remedies I'm giving him are Cicuta 3 (2ce), Aethusa 6 (6 times) and Sumulus mos 1m (1ce). He was looking a little hemiplegic after the two previous attacks, so I feared he'd had a stroke and Sumulus is a good artherosclerotic remedy. He's not struggling to urinate, drinking some milk and water and sleeping without waking to an aggravation. He's constipated a bit, but that's normal in old dogs - at least he doesn't have an epileptic fit each time he evacuates (which is how it appeared the last two times).

The thing is he's drawing many remedies in the Umbells and I'm sure they all have common characteristics for nerve, brain and blood. I only hope that I picked him up in time to save him for a long and happy life. Not sure yet, since the rains are still aggravating his condition. My medicines aren't equal to the task during these 'aggravations by environment'.

Icy is doing well on Aethusa 6 - so it's not such a waste to have bought it. Except for the hematoma of his ear (which is why I thought of arteriosclerosis at all) he's looking a lot better. The wounds in his legs and neck and head are fewer and smaller. It's definitely a blood vessel hardening thing that is his problem.

Hydrocotyle seems to cover all these - I'm just too frazzled by Ancient's seizures to limit myself patiently to just that. Yesterday's combo of Cicuta 6, Hcot 12 and Aethusa 6 seems to have been really good for the cats though - I'll repeat it. Kitpit is flying around on his bad leg, so that's probably healed, thank the universe.:)

Fits or seizures in healing mode

27/8 - I raced and bought Aethusa in many potencies - and found out I was wrong.:) I thought I was being too obsessive about Hydrocotyle and I should try another. Also, they were drawing Hcot in such low potencies that I thought I was wrong to stick to it. But they're still drawing more Hydrocotyle and Cicuta than any other remedy - Aethusa 6x came a distant third. Cicuta in fact in cm (all the way from 6x to cm) over this New Moon - I guess as the energies change direction, the spine and lower chakras are roiled up more than the upper chakras.

26/8 afternoon update - he had another fit around 4:30, poor guy. I think his breathing gets arrested so he suffers long after the teeth-clenching, spine undulating, legs and arms wheeling attack which ends with faeces and prolonged moaning after, when he gets his jaw unlocked. He drew Cicuta cm and then 50m, which I gave an hour apart. In the evening he drew Sumbulus 1m (the highest I had) so I gave that as well for weak hindlegs and numb forearms. He doesn't draw Zizia, but drew Aethusa which was dry. He had the attack after eating a bit, so maybe it's related to digestion. I'll get the Aethusa tomorrow in many potencies - the kittens can use it too.

Ancient had fits last night. That's what he must have been having when I picked him up in a paralysed state that night. There were two huge factors - the clouding and the New Moon. Just like Kitpit, his fits came after a whole day of sleeping into the aggravation. He was terrified by the end of it - Aconite cm helped that stage of terror. I got on this blog to see how I dealt with Kitpit's and saw it was Ran B cm that helped her, but he didn't draw it. Neither did he draw the Zizia 6 and 30 that I have.

After giving him the Aconite, I calmed down considerably.:) I thought it through and realised that Cicuta was the Umbell that helped all the dogs last month. I had given them just Hydrocotyle 30 yesterday, so I checked and sure enough he drew Cicuta 50m, 30 at night and then 6 in the morning. All is well so far. I should keep the Cicuta in or at least try the other Umbell remedy for worms - Sumbulus.

He has no control over his urine still and can't stand on his own, though he walks around if I stand him up - his limbs are stiff and without strength. He's better overall, but the problem was still there if it had to come out again - which is good. Even in Kitpit I felt that the emergence of the seizures was a sign of healing.

Hydrocotyle: Healing from the brain down

I think I understand why Hydrocotyle is so good for these tubercular, cancerous, syphilitic, gonorrheal cases - almost all dogs actually. All these diseases have a venereal base and are inherited. What we see is just the altered nature of the disease - how the dog adapts to it. The one common feature I've noticed in these dogs is how wrong-headed they are - how prone to misunderstand reality and events.

The cancerous dogs are invariably victims of abuse because they trust the wrong people, too much, are too emotional and easily hurt. They also blame the wrong thing when things go wrong.

For example, I was puzzled by an incident at the shelter, because it was so typical and revealing. One of the free lame puppies with an enlarged liver came out to greet me in joyous excitement, the vets were around with her. I had brought some chicken legs, which it had one of, and some rice that I put on the roadside. After she ate the leg, the other dogs had finished most of the rice so I picked her up and put her at the remaining rice. As she was eating, I was chatting with the vets, she was attacked and shaken by an over-excited male who'd already eaten - not badly, but from behind. I ran and picked up the bewildered and now terrified pup. She growled and snapped at me looking wildly around as I tried to calm her down. From that day forward, she'd always hide from me as if I had attacked her. This pup will develop cancer.

Pummi, who had malignant tumors in her breasts and probably died of cancer of the alimentary canal, always looked at my brother for love and ran from me - even though I brought her into the house, fed her all her life, I took her in when he threw her out, and was with her till her last breath. Only the night she died, I saw her piece it all together differently, more correctly, when he wouldn't stay with her. She'd been like this all her life - 9 years of misunderstanding reality. Craving the biscuit and scorning the rice.:)

They have enlarged livers, grow fat and sweet (with furtive cruelty to kittens), and are adorably needy and adjusting. Their auto-immune disorders are tumors, oedema, kidney troubles, addictive-digestive disorders, mucus eyes, etc.
The tubercular dogs are less timid but equally wrong-headed. They're the ones that chase cars and laugh as if they won when it goes away. Their memories of events are sharper and blame is their game. They hate strangers and anything new in their environment. They're power-hungry and form the great hierarchies of wolf-like packs we see on the road. These dogs have created half the animal-hating trouble in the media (the other half being the tubercular people and tubercular media-editors like Balram of the Times of India).

For example, a few years ago, I was watching this handsome, tall male dog (tubercular) on Brigade road with his plump female (cancer) going down the road. A car screeched past them, narrowly missing the female and scaring her badly. The male, who saw it happen, raced after the car which was too fast for him and then did something extraordinary: he snapped at the tires of 4 other moving cars nearly getting himself killed, before he returned to walk on with the female! Vengence, omerta and loyalty!:)

Icy and Kenchu (draw Bacillinum) are both loyal to a fault, rigid in their hatred of strangers and new experiences, full of precise habits and very pack oriented (like to do things together, defer to their superiors, unquestioning acceptance, etc.).

These dogs are the knights who defend their territory, chase cars, cats and strangers, who'd give their life for you. Everything they do is for the pack, and they have long memories. They develop in a lupine, wolf-like, leanness, are disciplined and can live long lives on less than nothing as scavengers as long as their environment doesn't change too quickly. They have auto-immune diseases like lupus (from lupine?!), blood disorders, pneumonia, arthritis, gout, chorea, etc.
This is very general and I'm sure there are exceptions. But my point is that there's something wrong in their heads from the start that makes them this way and ultimately, makes up their disease.

Brahmi or Hydrocotyle somehow changes this from the brain down. I noticed the same with Bufo. It brings clarity to the foggy mind of the cancerous dogs and less rigidity to the tubercular dog. Allows them to learn and grow, allows the brain to rewire against disease.

The part of the brain that draws these remedies strongly with Reiki is the hypothalamus, the 'old' or animal brain, or the place where the brain stems off into the spine. I think the spine is a part of the brain - it just translates the energy blocks of the hypothalamus into a long form. I've been using Cicuta for the spine.

These two 'types' are interwoven in most dogs. Sometimes healing one just changing it to the other if we don't begin at the brain. That's why its so difficult to heal their acute diseases - distemper, peritonitis, etc.

As an example of complexity: I draw a lot of energy in that hypothalamus region myself, and I've been wrong-headed most of my life - misunderstanding events, people, being vengeful and disliking changes, loving animals and hating people with great pack-loyalty and very long, if selective, memory. I show characteristics of both the tubercular and cancerous dogs, so I know they can be mixed in more complex and inseparable ways in animals as in humans.
