Muscle Memory

Every aspiring homeopath (caring mom) must learn how to recognize each remedy's uses and characteristics, and how to differentiate between remedies.  

materia medica (Latin for “materials of medicine”) is the tool that helps one do this, and is, therefore, the most necessary book in your homeopathic library.  

This is my materia medica.

Homeopathic Muscle Memory

It’s like riding a bike. If you knew how to ride at one point in your life, then at any later date, you could pretty much grab a bike, and your muscle memory would take over.

Developing your Homeopathic Muscle Memory is the same process. You know how much I have encouraged you to read, read, read (and then read some more!) Learn everything you can, then practice that knowledge by applying it as often as possible.

Not only will this keep you and your family well along the way, it will also help to develop your homeopathy muscles for when emergencies arise.

Let me share with you an example of how a Homeopathic Muscle Memory can be very useful in an emergency when, in pain, your brain would otherwise turn to mush.

I listened intently as one of my more accident-prone staff members told me about her latest adventure in the kitchen. Wait for it …

Wait for it …

She was attacked by Tupperware.

Well, maybe not “attacked,” but at the very least, she certainly found herself injured by the hard edge of a Tupperware container. Upon the first examination, it just looked like a big paper cut. As a matter of course, she washed it thoroughly with soap and water and had no further concerns.

Off to bed, she went, believing she had handled it sufficiently. She slept for an hour and then awoke with massive pain around the cut — a surprisingly intense amount of pain. On a scale of 1-10, it was rivaling a 10!

Apparently, the cut had been much, much deeper than she realized and she needed help. So, she awakened her husband to have him get a butterfly bandage to hold the sides of the cut together.

This is when her Homeopathic Muscle Memory kicked in.

Through the fog of her sleepiness, she remembered that (good girl) she kept her remedy kit right there by her bedside. She instinctively recalled that Hypericum 200c addresses pain: shooting pain, radiating pain, nerve pain, wound pain, and likely the pain she was experiencing from this Tupperware cut.

It also happens to keep potential infection at bay.

She took a dose of Hypericum 200c before her husband left the room. He was only gone a minute. But by the time he returned with the bandage, her pain had gone from a 10 to a 3! Her angst was quenched as well.

That is how fast Hypericum 200c worked.

Let’s think about everything that contributed to that outcome.

First, she had developed the habit of instinctual turning to homeopathy immediately, and in this particular case, it saved her a lot of lingering pain.

Also, for quite some time, she had been developing her homeopathic knowledge by reading everything she could, becoming familiar with the most common remedies, and knowing the exact issues they address.

She had become so familiar, in fact, that she was able to wake up from a dead sleep with maybe half a functioning brain, and her Homeopathic Muscle Memory was able to take over. It led her to do precisely what she needed to do to alleviate her issue: Hypericum 200c!

And lastly, she had her kit at-the-ready for any eventuality. It was right there when she needed it. Even better, it was stored by her bedside so that she didn’t have to search around the house nor wait till morning to get to a store to purchase the medicine. (For those who live far from local grocery stores and such, or to have to wait until the medicine is delivered after an online purchase makes learning homeopathy practically useless in this kind of situation. Knowing what to take has little value if you don’t own the medicine.)

She accomplished all this faster than her husband could fetch a bandage.

Can there be any greater victory over being accident-prone? She was prepared. She had the knowledge. She had the kit containing Hypericum 200c. And she had developed the muscle memory to activate her homeopathic auto-pilot even when she was in pain.

To help you develop your Homeopathic Muscle Memory, I will be offering my own Materia Medica in the coming weeks.

For those of you who are new to homeopathy, a Materia Medica is a reference book listing homeopathic medicines, along with descriptions of conditions, illnesses, and symptoms they address.

Some have described my Materia Medica as a shorter, more distilled version of other potentially overwhelming ones that are more specific to the way I teach homeopathy. That is: it is specific to the needs of busy households, not homeopathic physicians.

So, stay tuned! 

By providing you with key information in an easy-to-read selection of homeopathic medicines, you will become even more confident in your familiarity with remedies and their applications. Because you never know when you may wake up in the middle of the night with an emergency that requires you to react quickly.

Warmly,

P.S. On a personal note…I don’t keep my kit by my bedside because if I need it for myself in the middle of the night, it wakes my husband. Instead, mine is in a hall cabinet.


 

 

 

I am a homeopath with a world wide practice working with families and individuals via Skype. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety s and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

In order to be treated or diagnosed, Joette believes that the advice of a holistic physician is in order.

    I am so excited to hear you are writing your very own Materia Medica….I use the old Boericke 1921 (reprint 2005) printed in New Delhi. What a blessing you are to take the time and share your gift of Homeopathy with the world. GOD BLESS YOU.

    beautiful article !!!!!!!!!

  5. Christa Walker says:

    So exciting! Just to clarify, is this the one you already wrote for Cure Yourself and Your Family, or is it something new?

    Also, I want to share a cute story with you. The other day my kids (7 and 9) were playing with their friend, and she mentioned that her earring hole was infected. They brought her into my bedroom and doused her ear with some the the Hepar 6 water remedy I keep near my earrings. I didn’t even know about it until she happily reported that this one little treatment cleared up her infection. I love that my girls are learning how to use homeopathy. It is like a daily miracle in our lives that we experience because of you and your blog. Thank you!

      Hi Christa! This is not new and great story.

  6. Richard Thomas says:

    I had given a small bottle of Hypericum 200c to a parent with the instruction to give one more dose at home the next day, then dispose of the rest. (This was for suppressed anger.)
    At a later consult I learnt that the child had had a paper cut to one eye. The eye specialist advised that she would have distortion of the eye for the rest of her life and would need corrective glasses.
    The mother remembered that I had told her that this remedy was for sharp cuts and gave her one drop.
    When they revisited the eye specialist he was amazed that the surface of the eye had healed perfectly.
    [Obviously, this was a case of placebo/spontaneous remission/coincidence ?!]

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      No doubt.

  7. Anna says:

    I am so excited to hear this! I was just now looking into Materia Medica books for myself, but it is overwhelming to someone that is new to homeopathy. I am really looking forward to it. Thank you!

  8. Neemu says:

  9. Lindsey says:

    Great post. I’m really hoping your materia medical isn’t out of my price range!! That sounds awesome to have!

  10. Janice says:

    I’ve used Hypericum 30c with equally good results.

  11. winterskykim says:

    Hi Joette, I just had a really bad acute sciatica condition. I had searing shooting pains and spasms going down my left left ending in some numbness and tingling in my foot. In addtion to my regement I used hypericum 200.. it just wasnt touching the pain and even now that the searing has stopped with what pain I do get Im just wondering when is hypericum 1m a choice? I dont want to lean on alternative medicine but I was throwing everything I knew at this and the pain was intolerable.. thanks,Kim

  12. winterskykim says:

    I do feel the regiment I was using arnica 200, rhus tox 30, symph 200 and bryonia 30 along with the hypericum 200 shortened the spasms.. 2 weeks, but wondering if higher level would have dealt with the pain better and wasnt exactly sure how often to take it. thank you again.

  13. Richard Thomas says:

    The remedy I actually used was Staphysagria, for suppressed anger and sharp cuts – part of the pattern for Staphysagria.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      So tidy.

  14. Kate says:

    So excited for your Materia Medica! You always make everything so much simpler and easier to understand, so this is going to be GREAT! 🙂
