The great charm of Homeopathy, Bach and Biochem is how inviting they are for every layperson to try them. I tried my first homeopathic remedy on a dog when I was 12 yrs old, maybe even younger, with my mother's help! AND she let me put the same in my mouth to see how it would feel!
Enter electro homeopathy and they're as secretive and dark and obscure as witchcraft! There's no invitation, just huge warning signs, "Do not try this without a qualified EH!!" while at the same time assuring us that all their remedies are safe, harmless and gentle. I'm like ... what? If it's safe, harmless and gentle why not let everyone try it on their own???!!
Still, a great deal more clarity from reading this (in my own words from the article):We are made of Lymph and Blood and the malfunction of either or both creates disease. They are altered (beginning in the child) as in miasms.
Ask two questions:
1st, is the presence of the disease in the lymph, or in the blood?
2nd, what organ does the disease affect? (not necessary to ask, since it would require tests:)
The diseases springing from Psoric virus will be cured by S series (scrofulous), assisted if necessary, by A series (blood vessels), by the P series (respiratory) or by the C Series (for completely diseased - chronic, cancer).
(He doesn't elaborate further. The author gets distracted at this point with warnings to continue the remedies for a long time.:)
So I return to Hahnemann and his followers for the two types - Lymphatic and Scrofulous:
Pure Lymphatic – Re-activity of the lymphatic system (adenoid and tonsil irritations; splenitis; swollen lymph nodes; irritated appendix; catarrh with exudations; eczema; acne; flakey, dry skin; dandruff; asthma;coughs; bronchitis; sinusitis; diarrhoea; arthritis; vaginal discharge; eye irritations; fluid retention).
Healed with remedies like:
- The carbon group include Am-carb., Calc-carb., Carbo-v., Graphites, Kali carb., Natrum carb, etc..
- The Natrums also have a tendency to phlegmatic states Nat-c., Nat-chlr, Nat-m., Nat-s.
- The Ammoniums, and Antimoniums also are similar as demonstrated by Am-c., Am-m., and Ant-c., Ant-t., Animal remedies include Asterias Rubens, Calcarea, Sepia (water creatures) and Apis.
- Many anti-sycotic remedies also are similar as there is a connection between phlegmatic states and sycosis : Agnus Cast., Thuja, Asterias rubens, Natrum sulph., Calc carb., etc..
- Plant remedies include Aloe, Dulcamara, Pulsatilla, Cyclamen, Thuja, etc.
The scrofulous diathesis is a constitutional state favoring the development of inflammations of all kinds. He may develop tuberculosis of the lungs when construction favors it, and the eating and other habits develop the necessary toxin poisoning.
The cure is to build up lost resistance by rest, and to correct the sensuality.
It is obvious that the state of resistance--the state of enervation--must range from one nearly normal to one of almost no resistance at all. The question of cure, then, must be a question of determining to which class the patient belongs. If to that of lowest resistance, the possibilities of recovery are nil. A perfect treatment will secure the most comfort and the longest life possible, but no cure. Those with full resistance can be cured when in the first stages of almost any disease, by simply correcting their daily habits.
Scrofulous subjects should be in the open air and sunshine as much as possible; and, if they desire comfort and a reasonably long life, they must be moderate in all things.
From here: scrofulosis is that dyscrasia which always aims at the formation of purulent exudations.
More later, but interesting so far, yes?:)
