“Iodum comes from the Greek word for “violet.” In fact, this element gives off violet-colored vapors when it burns. Violet, a mixture of red and blue, is the incarnation of temperance, red representing impulsive force and blue the calm of the sea and the sky. Violet is the symbol of a spiritual transfusion; it is the color of submission and obedience. It is the passage from yang to yin. Iodum has forgotten temperance and is consumed in the flames of excess.” Grandgeorge, The Spirit of Homeopathic Medicines (more…)

For this to occur, a great amount of fuel in the form of sugar (glucose) is necessary. At birth, after the umbilical cord is cut, glucose is no longer brought into the body through the blood. The sodium-potassium pump does…

Requested by Y Y. Incarcerated “It is to Michel Zala, of Orleans, France, that I owe my understanding of the deeper issues underlying this extremely reserved remedy. It corresponds to people who declare: “Sir, there are some things that should remain unsaid.” Thus they are faced with a serious communication problem until, thanks to this remedy, they realize that these things can be said once one learns the art of it and acquires a few pertinent skills. Incarcerated within themselves, these patients turn their aggression inward and suffer from allergies, insomnia, and eventually cancer.” D-r Didier Grandgeorge, The Spirit of…

“The key to this remedy is in its clumsiness. It is as if some kind of mismatch has occurred between the body and the vital force that gives it life: either the vital force is in good order and the body is disabled, not allowing the full expression of the energy within, or the body is in good order but the internal energy is too intense.” Didier Grandgeorge, The Spirit of Homeopathic Medicines Latin: Agaricus muscarius, Amanita muscaria Common: Toad-stool, Fly agaric Agaricus was introduced as homeopathic antipsoric medicine from Samuel Hahnemann in the second edition of his book ‘Chronic…

“The real pathological condition of the kidneys in these cases is not one of acute Bright’s disease, nor one of croupous formation in the kidneys, but one of renal congestion, with oozing of blood into the pelvis of the kidney. The condition is not infrequently the result of living in damp dwellings. When its urinary symptoms are present, you may give Terebinthina with confidence, no matter what the patient’s disease may be.” E.A. Farrington, Clinical Materia Medica Latin: Terebinthinae oleum Common: Oil of Turpentine, distilled from different species of Pinus Affinity Terebinthinae has definite affinity to bleeding mucous surfaces.
