Hi! Buster, the Bad Office Dog, here.
Every once in a while, Mom will mumble under her breath that I’m getting on her last nerve. Frankly, I don’t see how that’s physically possible. I may be furry and walk on all fours, but I’m not stupid! The human body has billions of nerve cells. Therefore, how could I possibly be on her “last” one?
But it did make me think about how painful nerves can be when they’ve been injured.
Not so long ago, a friend of mine (of the canine variety) had a terribly painful experience. He accidentally ripped one of his toenails out, and the poor little guy was screaming in agony!
Ooooh … I shudder just thinking about it! That had to be ruff!!!
Luckily, his mom knew about homeopathy. She gave him the same medicine Mom wanted to discuss in this latest entry of her Emergency Remedy Series: Hypericum perforatum.
Hypericum is great for addressing pain in nerve-rich areas, like when you injure your fingertips or toes, fall on your tailbone, or have dental work done. There are so many areas of our bodies rich in nerves that respond well to Hypericum.
In an acute situation, Mom uses Hypericum 200, as needed, every few hours, depending on the severity of the pain. Sometimes if the pain is really extreme, she’ll switch to Hypericum in a 1M potency.
Well, I’m sure this will come as no surprise, but my friend’s toenail pain was alleviated in short order, and the area healed. But boy, he sure appreciated the power of homeopathy.
In fact, I heard our moms laughing together on the phone. A month or so later, after the injury had fully healed, my little fur-friend would still occasionally stand in front of his mom with his paw lifted. That cunning rascal! He was fake-begging for more remedy! (And they call me, “The bad office dog!”) Apparently, he reaaally liked his Hypericum! (Guess he doesn’t know what “as needed” means.)
Anyway, as you know, homeopathy works in the same way with us animals as it does with you humans. So, if you get an injury to a nerve-rich area, be sure to have Hypericum 200 and 1M already stocked in your first aid kit. When you need it, you’ll definitely want it to start working as soon as possible! Remember, the chances are very high you’ll need Hypericum at some point — especially since you have billions of nerve cells.
Just don’t try to convince me anything is on your last nerve. I’m not buying it.
Oh, and as Mom says, “Pass on the good news of homeopathy!”
P.S. I encourage you to download Mom’s First Aid Chart. It’s absolutely free and is a great addition to your First Aid Kit. When accidents strike, you humans don’t think as clearly as you might like. (Believe me, it happens to me, too!! Sometimes, I just chase my tail around … and then go lie down.) Mom says when the going gets tough, having this handy reference will help you address your family’s needs competently and confidently.
If you want to learn more than Mom can teach in these short blog posts, she also offers a very reasonably priced digital download (or CD, if you prefer) called Perform in the Storm: Homeopathy First Aid.
