Creating Waves of Awareness
What a foolish notion it is to feed that infant lime-water because he cannot digest lime! Is it not just as reasonable as anything else in allopathy? And yet our homoeopaths use allopathic medicines. They use the lowest potencies they can get and it would seem strange if those substances cured any better in the hands of the homoeopath than in the hands of the allopath.
Now, it is astonishing that one single dose of the potency suitable to meet the state of disorder will make that infant commence to digest its food, and appropriate from its food the lime substance that it needs in its bones, and wherever else it needs it. All at once the teeth begin to grow; the bones begin to grow, and the legs get stiff enough for him to begin to walk, and they will hold him up. It is astonishing what changes will take place under the various medicines that are suitable for the disturbances of the hair, and the bones and nails. The remedy must be sufficiently potentized to correspond with the wrong. It certainly must not be crude because the crude material already stunts the child.
You will see within a month or six weeks after giving a solitary dose of the sufficiently potentized remedy the nails that were corrugated and uneven and spotted and irregular will form a margin and will grow out smooth. You will see the ugly little crowns upon the teeth, distorted, and black things as they come up out of the gums; but when they have been under the suitable homoeopathic remedy you will see them form a margin line, and from thereon the teeth look healthy, and from thereon the little body of the tooth is smooth and round; just as if that child had had an impulse to grow better teeth. That same thing probably takes place where the bones exist. The periosteum takes on healthy work. This is the Calcarea state when the patient needs lime and he cannot get it because he has been cloyed; or, because he has an indigestion, he is unable to assimilate the lime that is in his food, and it goes through him and does not affect him. So it is with much of the sickness we have, an inability to extract from the food and assimilate such things, as the body needs.
Would not anyone be a simpleton to suppose that he had been the cause of the building of a tooth? You do not build molehills out of our high potencies; they simply establish a state of order, so that digestion and assimilation go on, order is established and the tissues are improved. Health comes, beauty, a growth of hair, better skin, and better nails -
