What is a cure?
I’m often asked if homeopathy will cure a specific disease. Let’s use ear infections as an example.
If your child has a screaming ear infection with a high fever and you give him Tylenol paired with an antibiotic and, as a result, the pain and fever cease, is that a cure?
What if the ear infection and fever return in a month or so; does the first illness still qualify as cured? The pediatrician might believe so, but I don’t. Why? Because as a mother, when raising my kids, I was in it for the long haul.
I didn’t count each illness separate from the next, blindly assuming they were unrelated. I planned to be with my children into adulthood and even beyond and if the illness morphed into something else, the side effects caused a new disease, or the original illness returned, I certainly would not have called this a cure.
Instead, I’d call it a deepening of the original illness. Perhaps even a will for the illness to return until the disease is met with the correct medicine; the one that uproots the disease instead of thrusting it into the future, only to compound it.
Does this sound familiar to you…you know. ear infection on top of ear infection, on top of ear infection? Repeated otitis media is not only common; pediatricians actually expect it to return.
That, my friends, is sloppy work that doesn’t give a hoot about the future.
This is the place where I would normally offer the homeopathic remedy for otitis media but instead, I’m going to show you how to integrate it with medicines to help on other levels as well so that you see an entire picture of correction for now and into the future.
Returning to the child with recurring ear infections; this is how I’d put this case together:
Why did I start with Camphora? Read this so that you have a good understanding of this remedy choice and how it will help antidote previous drugs.
What will this do, you ask? Well, besides correcting the present illness within hours and gently removing it in about a day or so, it will also likely put a stop to the repetition of these infections. It puts the child where he should have been after the initial incident, had homeopathy been employed the first time.
Consider a weed. We don’t douse it in pesticides (well, some might, but they’re not reading this.) Instead, we uproot it. If it returns, it will likely be a milder version and will typically only require another gentle nudge. By and large, that’s all it takes because the foundation it had previously built itself upon has been effectively treated to the point it doesn’t have the necessary strength to grow back.
This same scenario relates to repeated strep and sinus infections, boils, urinary tract infections, repeated coughs, and even croup, to name a few.
If the child has had antibiotics, it’s also likely he now has gut dysbiosis. Depending on how it presents, it will determine what other homeopathic medicines need to be employed in the above schedule.
I’ll give you a few ideas here but to be honest, the subject of wiping out the effects antibiotics may have caused is a rather vast subject. Not impossible to treat; in fact, it’s not all that difficult. It just takes some understanding and specific protocols. (I cover this thoroughly in my course, Good Gut, Bad Gut.)
So let’s say the child has the above conditions and lately, is suffering from bloating and gas after every meal as a direct result of antibiotic treatment.
This would call for Lycopodium 200C, taken twice daily, usually for about 2 months. This is a Banerji Protocol that I have been employing for the last four years with great success.
As such, the schedule would now look like this:
If more time is needed to fully correct the ill effects of the old antibiotic gas and bloat, it should be continued.
With this plan, you’ve not only protected the child from another round of antibiotics by knowing how to use Hepar sulph if it presents, but you’ve corrected the inherited immunity concern with Calcarea carbonica AND corrected the gnarly hand of previous antibiotics that caused chronic gut illness.
This is how homeopathy can reach back into the past, set the present straight and protect the future with one schedule of protocols.
Is it any wonder that it’s the fastest growing medical method on earth?
P.S. Remember that Hepar sulph is not the only medicine we can turn to for otits media. We also have Pulsatilla, Chamomilla, Nux vomica and others but Hepar sulph is the one that more often does the work.
