I recall, way back when (around twenty years ago), when I was solely a patient of Heilkunst Medicine, feeling rather distraught right around the third round of my Genetic Miasms. I felt like I was holding a frayed rope, as there was so much carnage. It was the summer and I was finishing up the 3rd round (the CM round) to destroy the spiritual element of my inherited diseases. I likened it in my book, “The Path to Cure; The Whole Art of Healing” to feeling like bombed out London at the tail end of WWII.
I felt gutted to realize that I had such a tenuous, broken sense of my essential self, realizing what I thought to be my true character was just a cobbled game of false ego charades. I was devastated at how bereft I was when I reached around inside myself in a Dr. Seuss-like pandemonium, “Are You My Mother?” At that stage of abject chaos, there was no answer.
My soon to be husband had trained in Bach Flower Essences before he came to be a physician of Heilkunst Medicine, and he suggested backing away from the more male “C-scale” potencies for a bit. It was clear that I was in desperate need of some nurturing and healing as opposed to more male-impulses in the destruction of my gnarly inherited diseases.
He was right. Also, my Heilkunst Practitioner did something quite out of the ordinary at our next follow-up session, when I appealed to him to somehow slow down and gentle the process of disease annihilation. He provided me with an LM potency based on Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s more feminine “Q” scale for prescribing the remedies homeopathically.
This approach worked like a dream. In fact, I had crazy dreams as a result. At night, while asleep, women came to bathe and anoint me, angelic beings lovingly soothed me, stripped me of my pain, took me to the breast and let me linger in the most honouring states of rest and repose. I woke feeling wholly restored and cared for. I began to heal and feel like I was getting my feet under me for the first time in months. The dreams felt uncannily real and somehow of another realm, where matriarchy and care gently dominated. Within me, I found the archetypal Mother which was a relief, as my biological mother had not been available to me since I was eight years of age.
Fast forward sixteen years. At Arcanum Wholistic Clinic, we rarely prescribe a higher potency C scale remedy without an accompanying LM scale to hold the patient lovingly through the process. It feels more like a balanced waltz as opposed to a Ukrainian Cossack dance with lots of kicking, knives, and guttural yelling.
In order to prescribe LM potencies well, you have to be more deeply connected to the feminine gesture in nature, in order to intuit when these subtle potencies need to be succused and taken to the next level. It takes a bit to learn how to listen to the difference in the patient’s tone (how she’s expressing dissonance or irritability in her state).
It’s through this discernment that we can know when they’re ready for the next step-up in increased potency. It’s like a set of small stairs that we use to raise the patient vibrationally. Suddenly, the music changes in a negative way and the hair on the back of your neck bristles with how they’re expressing the symptoms. That is when you succuss and give the next dose.
It can be within hours, days, or weeks that this irritable proving quality emerges. You’ve got to have your spidey senses softly alert to it. It will cause your organs of knowing to feel the butterfly effect in yourself or your child; it’s an apperceiving.
In the beginning, your Heilkünstler will guide you to the best of their ability with their organs of intuition in conjunction with the instructions below, until you get the hang of it. It takes a bit of getting used to the lack of rhythm, as our feminine organs of knowing have been mostly in the shop for a few decades or more. The presentation is so subtle, you may second guess yourself at first.
However, the wisdom of sophia (philo-sophia means love of knowledge) is presently incarnating more deeply in this present evolutionary epoch, and even in the last couple of decades, we’re seeing patients wield this more profound and powerful knowledge more effectively than prior. Even if there are no overt symptoms, there is a gut response to the change in the patient’s inner milieu or timbre. We liken it to hearing a key-signature change in music; you have to root (or perhaps route) below the level of intellect to properly hear it. You can leave your more mechanistic and materialistic egghead at the door, as you won’t be needing it here.
Below is a guide that we offer to our patients in order to effectively navigate the LM potencies, once you’ve intuited that the patient is ready for the next dose. Bon chance and let us know if you have any questions:
The correct dosage of the LM Potency needs to be individualized on a case-by-case basis, however, there is a basic protocol which can be modified as necessary:
1) Potentize the remedy (success or hit against palm of hand 4-12 times).
2) Stir 1 Tablespoon into a glass of water (approx. 4-12 times).
3) Hold 1 Tablespoon from this glass in the mouth for a few seconds before swallowing.
4) Discard the remainder of the water.
5) If new symptoms arise, discontinue this Rx, and report this to your practitioner.
