Creating Waves of Awareness
November 3, 2011
Learning the basic principles is the key to using homeopathy in animals (and people, plants, etc). The same principles we discuss here will also apply to any other modality of treatment you choose.
I. Read the Organon – I prefer the Wenda Brewster O’Reilly edition for clarity and ease of reading. Others prefer different translations. There is a free on-line version (unsure of translator) that is very searchable (“principles” or “dissimilar diseases”, etc) (The Organon
II. Read the sections on the nature of disease and the nature of illness (Chapters 2 and 3) in Don Hamilton’s Homeopathic Care of Cats and Dogs. An abbreviated version of that is in a few pages in my book, The Healthy Animal’s Journal.
III. Take classes and keep listening to talks like this. Since this is not what we hear from most people around us, we need to keep repeating this studying. We will do several of these talks to get a complete understanding, then refer back to them as we look at specific problems.
PROGRESSION OF ILLNESS
can’t pass urine properly and the urinalysis shows red and white cells and bacteria.”
d. Pathology or tissue changes - The skin is lichenified (thickened) and hyperpigmented. The bladder wall is thick and there are stones or crystals.
NATURE OF ILLNESS (from the Organon)
There is one on-going "disease,” not just separate, acute episodes. To really heal, the totality of symptoms must be addressed, not just the current problem(s). This treats the underlying imbalance (one disease).
Baby, a 9 year old cat, had been receiving Depo Medrol injections for 8 years at an ever-increasing frequency, up to every 6 weeks, to keep the Feline Endocrine Alopecia under control. She was treated homeopathically for 9 months before the skin on her abdomen was free of lesions. She had no skin lesions from then until her death at 17 years. She has two episodes of acute problems when other cats in the house became ill, yet never needed homeopathic treatment again.
Isis, a Bengal cat, had chronic coughing since 6 weeks of age that was non-responsive to conventional treatment, yet in the face of this ill health her vaccines were continued. Six hours after getting her annual boosters at age 5, she had to be admitted to the hospital for oxygen with a severe asthma attack. With conventional treatment of 3-4 medications, she continued having asthmatic respiration with occasional hospitalizations for the next 2 years. Thuja, given carefully while she was withdrawn from drugs over one month, resolved the asthma problem and she had no conventional drugs, no asthmatic breathing and less coughing until she died at age 18. She was treated every 6 months or so to work at permanently curing her cough and a few minor skin issues. She had a rodent appear and disappear twice, then some skin issues, as the body worked through different remedies.
