The Informed Remedy

[This post is from the April 2019 newsletter – click here to read it.]

It’s time to talk about the informed remedy. Our mentor, Steven Decker once said, “A remedy isn’t a remedy until it remedies something.” Medicine has to be informed in order to be curative. How do you do this?

Well, it has to have a whole lot of consciousness and principles behind it. It feels a bit like if we’re being attacked, we’ve got to create the right arsenal, quickly and effectively so that it hits its mark. You have to know about the origin of the battle, isolate the coordinates, discern the root destination, and be sure not to take out any innocent bystanders in the process.

An informed remedy is one that, like a heat-seeking missile, is bestowed with the capacity to cleanly sweep out the disease matrix on the sound basis of the law of nature – like cures like. It must operate on resonance, albeit a slightly attenuated frequency. It has to be preprogrammed. Thorough, but not destabilizing in the way of a mighty healing reaction for the patient. Just the right directed dose and potency will do the job.

As you will learn, reading our articles this month, antibiotics (literally ‘against life’) are not informed remedies … they actually don’t know what they’re targeting. They wipe out the whole darn terrain, and the other casualties are your microbiome, critical to your healthy immune function. Also, there’s a good chance the enemy will martial its gnarly resources, again and again, until it is addressed outright.

Also, symptoms can be shape-shifters, or “pleomorphic”. As Heilkünstlers, we’re trained to read the signs for when the enemy tries to throw up false flags, pretends to surrender or even morphs into a whole other entity entirely.

Six lifestyle factors affecting fertility

Video Transcription

Good morning. This is Jeff from Arcanum Wholistic Clinic. And I just want to spend a few minutes sharing this article I found. It actually makes some very good points about natural fertility. And I wanted to highlight those for you and bring those out.

This is an article from raconteur.net. The article is titled “Six lifestyle factors affecting fertility“. That’s by Virginia Matthews and it just came out about a week ago, at the beginning of April. I scroll down, what have I got highlighted here.

So she goes through six distinct areas or six factors affecting fertility. And the first one she identifies is actually quite important. She identifies “being underweight” as a big problem. Now not that being underweight is itself the problem, but it’s often the ways people lose weight or trying to get into shape, trying to take off weight and so on. Those can create a lot of health problems including a lot of fertility factors. And what she’s talking about in here, about some technical things about the BMI, the body mass index, and some of these factors.

But what I want to add to it, actually, I put in my own notes here is the big importance or the connection with being underweight relates to our relationship with fat. As in the sense of eating fat. Eating fats and oils and butter and all these healthy foods. They’ve kind of get wrongly put aside or avoided by people. And the phrase that we like to use for our fertility couples is when we’re teaching them about the fertility diet is: Whenever you’re shopping and you see a label on a food that says “low fat”, thinking whenever you see those words, “low fat”, think to yourself “low fertility”, because that’s really what that’s all about. And the essential need for healthy fats and oils is related to so many aspects of fertility. From the way our actually healthy cholesterol is created, how hormones are created. Basically, all that’s connected with the hormones and everything else. And fertility comes from this healthy base of fats and oils in our diet. So I’m glad that she starts with this point.

Let’s move on. She identifies the problem with “prescription medicines”, including things like smoking and cigarettes and prescription drugs. All these toxins, of course, are not good for our system. But what I highlighted here in my notes is she is absolutely correct. But of course, in our approach to fertility with couples, we don’t just acknowledge the lifestyle and the toxic implications of being on any prescriptions or even having been on them in the past, but we actually go to the more important step of clearing those toxins out of the system. So each prescription drug or each environmental toxin, whatever the case may be, will take a very specific homeopathic protocol to remove that from the system. Do a proper detox, but on a very specific toxic basis. So, again, I like this article. She’s identifying some of the most important things.

At point three, she she talks about minerals and supplements. And she highlights zinc in particular, as a mineral, which she’s absolutely correct, zinc is important. We do go into the full range of the important fertility minerals, and where to get them in the third chapter of our Natural Fertility book. And, by the way, if you don’t have our Natural Fertility book yet, you can get that for free at www.NaturalFertilityBook.com. Or if you know, someone in your family or a friend who’s in the process of trying to conceive, you can tell them they can get their free book there. And again, in Chapter 3, we go into zinc and all the other fertility mineral. She mentions a little bit some of the sources like “oysters, milk, seeds, and lentils”. And that’s definitely a good start.

I’m just going to move on to her fourth point. She talks about, this is very interesting, she talks about the whole issue of the timing and the ovulation cycles. And of course, everyone knows, that who’s trying to conceive, there’s the monthly cycle and there’s which days are fertile, which are not, and if you fall on this on the calendar. It is important, in one sense, kind of understanding when those fertile days are. But I like the point that she’s making here. Which basically, she’s saying, not to let the mechanics of reproduction override the deeper love and intimacy that really goes into the making of a baby. Right, and that phrase, that very old well known phrase of making love, that’s actually very important. It’s not just the mechanics of the sperm plus the egg equals the baby, but there’s a much deeper, a much more profound energy between the couple, as far as where babies really come from. And actually we go deeper into this in Chapter 8 of our book where we compare or contrast what we call the reproductive style of sex versus the regenerative style of sex. Those two words start with “r”, but just to speak to the these very two different sides of what’s going on in the sex life of a couple, whether they’re to conceive or not. This is very important to mention. So, again, that’s in Chapter 8 of our book. And yes, as I’ve said earlier, you can download that www.NaturalFertilityBook.com.

The fifth point she makes in this article is the effects of “lack of sleep”. And that’s when I was talking earlier about the essential role of healthy fats and oils that goes to about the same level of importance as healthy sleep. Now, there are many reasons someone may not be sleeping well—whether that’s because of the schedule of their work or other environmental factors. As far as whether the light streaming into the bedroom, from a street light outside, or anything like that. All of these things can certainly affect sleep externally. But of course, there are also internal disruption to sleep such as whether it’s unresolved things that are launched into the person’s physiology kind of like the toxins that we mentioned earlier, with the prescription drugs or things like that, or even inner emotional states, unresolved stresses emotions, that have just launched into the whole cellular function of the body. And of course, that’s part of our whole natural fertility treatment is to eliminate any of those kinds of things—whether they’re interfering with sleep or other healthy functions.

And finally, her last point, she talks about the “quality of sperm”. And she talks about a lot of the physical factors, such as sitting with a laptop for hours at a time. She talks about, she’s looking at “agricultural workers” who may be exposed to pesticides. So just to say there’s, again, environmental factors, ergonomic factors, work situations and so on, which will affect the quality of the sperm. But again, she is correct. But we also want to marry that with the whole dynamic approach—everything from the diet and the nutrition, the detox that I mentioned above, the healthy energetic dynamics of emotions, even of the healthy sexuality dynamics that we’re talking about.

So, all in all, I like this article very much. And we do go further into all of these points in our book, The 8 Steps To Natural Fertility. And that’s at www.NaturalFertilityBook.com. And, again, thank you for listening. And I look forward to seeing you next time.

9 Fascinating Things No One Ever Taught You About Male Fertility

Video Transcription

Well, good morning. This is Jeff from Arcanum Wholistic Clinic. And I just have a few minutes before I get started with my morning. I wanted to share some of the things that are in this article I’m looking at. This article was published a couple of days ago on bustle.com. It’s called “9 Fascinating Things No One Ever Taught You About Male Fertility“. And let’s see.

I’ve highlighted some things just to remind myself. Right at the beginning is a very interesting opening. It’s setting the context with talking about the importance of male fertility. And it sets the context with this statistic. It says, “infertility impacts one in eight couples.” That’s actually quite a lot. “And the causes vary—but male infertility is a third of the cause.” So I think we saw that in a recent article we looked at where the stats are quite high, or close to equal, between men and women being behind the causes of infertility.

There’s a point here I highlighted. It talks about,

“‘Sperm count decreases in hotter environments,’ Dr. Riley says, including places like hot tubs and saunas. This is why many doctors recommend men avoid soaking in hot water, or doing anything that will heat up that general area—such as placing a laptop on their lap—when trying to conceive.”

So, we have just the basic regimen issue of body temperature, and particularly in the whole groin area. This point is very interesting to me as well—their second point in the article. “Vegans have a lower sperm count”. And actually, we talked quite a bit about this, in our book on The 8 Steps To Natural Fertility. By the way, you can get that book for free. If you don’t already, it’s available at NaturalFertilityBook.com. And you’ll see in our Chapter 3 of that book, we talked about the importance in fertility, for animal source proteins for both the male and the female. And I know people will promote things like tofu and other vegetable sources of protein, but it’s not giving you the same factors that you need for fertility. So continue on from this point. Actually, just to finish off on my last point on this, this point of vegetable protein. Here, the same doctor Riley there, quoting says, “Alternate sources of protein would be useful to offset this issue.” But as I say, not so much, as I just explained that we have in our Chapter 3 of our book.

Going down to their fourth point. They talked about, “STI’s Can Lead To Infertility”. And I say, yes this is absolutely true. But where we also make a distinction is between actual current infections and someone actually contracts an STI in the present time. But what’s even more significant, even someone who has not ever contracted an STI, when we look at the whole genetic inheritance in either of the pair, either the man or the woman, you look back in the family tree and you see signs—certain diseases that run through the family. Whether we’re talking about, well heart disease is a very big one, but then there are many other littler ones—arthritis and allergies. And we even get into the realms of some conditions of anxiety. Anyways, there’s a whole range. I’m not going to pull up that whole list. But the idea here is that these STI’s have actually transcended the lines of family genetics. Actually, from generations back we still see the after effects of STI’s and all kinds of common health conditions that people normally wouldn’t associate with them. So yes, this point is absolutely valid about taking care of any STI’s. But we even go much deeper into dealing with that in the whole family genetic structure. The technical word that we use is the “chronic miasms”. Getting a little bit of Greek into our morning. But yes, certainly that’s a good point. We just say we expand on that even further in our fertility protocol.

So in this point here, let me just collapse this window. This is another doctor, Dr. Rizk, says “95.” Sorry, maybe that’s supposed to be the other way around, “55 to 95 percent of semen is made up of a thick fluid that allows sperm to swim to their destination.” And as I comment here, we actually cover the whole nutritional protocol, which gives this healthy composition of semen and sperm. And it’s, again, it’s in our book, you can download that at www.NaturalFertilityBook.com. And we actually give you the exact diet the exact way to get this healthy sperm. It’s nice that they have statistics and so on here, but they don’t really give very practical advice about how to do that.

What else do I have here? Just scrolling back to where I am. And I think the final point that they make in this article. I’m skipping some other points because they don’t really have much substance to them. There’s pretty big in general. But in this point here, “Stress Can Make It Tough To Conceive.” Well, that’s I suppose pretty obvious. Should be to most people. And definitely, that’s what I comment on here. Not only do we just acknowledge that as a general point, and then people are left a little bit mystified as to how to manage their stress or what they’re actually should do about it. But that’s why in our fertility protocol, we include the whole range of homeopathics that deal with specific emotions and specific stressess, not just as a general concept, but on a very individualized basis for how a given individual responds to that. And the way I’ll often talk about stress in the general health context, and the general treatment context, is that on an individual basis. We use stress as this general word, but what does it mean on an individual basis and the way that somebody experiences their stress and expresses it? Some people may experience it more as physical tension, tension in the neck, or tension in the gut, or things like that. Other people, it’ll come out in specific behaviors—behaviors that are showing high levels of irritability, or frustration, or things like that. Like they’re overt behaviors, or other people may just become very kind of withdrawn with the feeling of overwhelmed, and so on. Just to say that there’s a very individual expression of stress. And that’s what we formulate—the homeopathic remedies on that individual basis. To help someone kind of be much more steady and strong in the face of whatever stresses. Of course, stress is fairly universal. It’s just a question of how we’re able to deal with it.

So that’s pretty much the end of this article. I just wanted to bring out the good points and expand on where we could go even further with some of the things that they point to. Again, if you don’t have our Fertility Book, it’s free at NaturalFertilityBook.com. Thank you for listening, and I’ll see you next time.

When To Stop Taking the Pill If You Want to Get Pregnant – and how to do the right kind of detox to get your system back to its natural state of fertility.

Video Transcription

Well, good morning. This is Jeff from Arcanum Wholistic Clinic. And I’m just looking at this article that’s just come across my newsfeed. It’s from a website called sheknows.com. And the title is “When To Stop Taking the Pill If You Want to Get Pregnant“. I want to point out some of the things that are said in this article. But I’m also going to add my own perspectives from what we’ve experienced in the clinic.

So if we just start going through this article, the main question it’s asking is “how to get off birth control pills and how long it might take you to conceive.” So, that’s a very common question as to how long the system takes to get back to its natural state of fertility. And if we go through this article, let’s see what it starts to say. So the author says “Fertility usually resumes within several months of discontinuing oral contraceptives”. And then further, “There is no indication that longer term use of pills affects fertility”. And then I’ll just read this one highlighted part here too, “Another fact you should know is if you do conceive quickly after going off birth control, it should not impact the health of your pregnancy.”

So the general gist of this article is that you come off the birth control pill, and within a reasonable amount of time, your body should get back to its natural state of fertility. And it doesn’t say too much more beyond that. It just seems like it’s a natural process, once your body gets off the pill it knows how to go back. But it’s kind of leaving a lot out. At least from my clinical experience, we’ve had far too many couples that they will come off the birth control pill, because they want to start a family, but then they find that’s just not happening. They’re not able to conceive—not even a few months later. But it just seems to be a great difficulty that now they can’t conceive. And just to kind of speak to the idea, the allopathic medical idea that’s behind this. It’s very interesting because when it comes to, there’s certainly a lot of, let’s say, emergency medical procedures, life saving procedures, which are virtually miraculous. But the problem is… (the western medical system is really excellent at those things) But when it comes to more kind of chronic health issues, long term health issues, their philosophy just doesn’t hold up. And this article really highlights that. Where the idea is like, “Oh, yeah, we’re going to come in with our medicines or surgical procedures. And then we’re going to do what we have to do on the medical side.” And then just somehow, they don’t really have much of an understanding or an explanation. Somehow the body just supposedly kind of gets back to its natural state after the medical intervention. And that’s, as I say, in our experience is just simply not true. We have far too many cases of difficulty conceiving after birth control pills. And we have to get into our very specific protocols, homeopathic formulas and ways of detoxing, to properly get the body to release all the residues of the birth control pill. And then finally, after that, it’s able to get back to its natural state of fertility. But it’s not this kind of an unexamined or kind of mysterious thing that somehow the body just does it. We need to follow natural medical principles to restore the body after the birth control pill.

So if you’re, by the way, if you’re in the process of getting on your own fertility path, trying to find the natural ways, if you haven’t downloaded it already you can get our book, The 8 Steps To Natural Fertility. And you can download that for free at NaturalFertilityBook.com. And when we go through even this particular article, this idea of detoxing from the birth control pill, we even do touch on that in the book as well. And here’s the important thing as well. It’s not just a general detox. There’s lots of ways people know how to do a detox. To eat healthy and clean up their diet and do more some more specific organ detox. I know there are kits and health food stores and things like that. But the thing about each birth control pill, each one is unique. So what we do, as far as the homeopathic detoxing of that or clearing that from the system, we need to match the specific homeopathic detox formula to the exact drug—the exact birth control pill that was taken. So it’s not just a matter of healthy clean living and healthy diet and doing a general flushing the system, a general detox. But there is a very specific form of detox for each specific birth control pill. And that’s exactly what we do when you’re coming through fertility treatment with us.

But anyways, if you’re beginning to research about these things and you’re wanting to get yourself on the path to natural fertility (all the things that you can do), we of course give many steps and things that you can follow for yourself at home. Again, that’s at our book. You can download it—NaturalFertilityBook.com.

Otherwise, just to wrap up with this article. It puts out a general idea, a general question. That is, what’s the time frame? But it’s not at all specific. Well, I guess this is what it’s like for anyone. When you don’t know the answer to something or you don’t really know that there is something that even needs to be answered, you don’t really address that. So that’s the problem with this article. It asks the important question, How long after the pill so you can conceive? But it doesn’t answer to actually how you do that—how you properly detox the body.

So thank you for listening. This is Jeff from Arcanum Wholistic Clinic and we’ll see you again soon.

Why male fertility needs greater attention


Video Transcription

Well, good afternoon. This is Jeff from Arcanum Wholistic Clinic. And I just wanted to take a few minutes that I have free this afternoon and share this article that came through on my newsfeed. I just have it right here on screen, I couldn’t figure out how to get myself on screen and the article on screen at the same time; it seems it was an either/or. So here we go. I’m going to just go through some of the points of this article and make my comments on them.

This article just came out a few days ago. It’s called “Why male fertility needs greater attention”. And here’s the subtitle, it says, “With sperm counts falling, the need for research into both the causes of treatments for male infertility has never been greater.” And I’ll just give you a spoiler alert. There’s kind of a clue right there in the subtitle that this article may be good for identifying the problem, but it’s not very good at all for giving useful solution. So let’s just go through at least find the good points in this article that we could use and then where we would turn to get some better practical advice for what to do for male fertility.

So right off the bat, that article starts with this great opening. It says,

“Mention the word fertility and most people immediately think of women and moms. Yet the reality is very different. Male infertility is the cause of problems in heterosexual couples in half of all cases.”

So that’s a very important statistic right off the bat. It’s essentially, what it’s saying is that when it comes to infertility, it pretty much breaks down to 50/50 as whether the cause is coming from the male side, or the female side of the couple. And here, let’s get a little more specific into the statistics it gives. On the male side, it says,

“A landmark study of thousands of men over 40 years, published in 2017 by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, showed a significant decline of more than 50 percent in sperm counts in Western men, with no sign of this decline leveling off.”

OK, so that’s quite an alarming statistic. But as we see, as we go through the article, they don’t really have much of a good recommendation for what to do about it. Other than kind of a vague general call for more research, or being careful with your lifestyle or something like that. But it’s, as we’ll see it, it’s not very good advice. And I will point you to some better advice as we get through this article. So what does this paragraph, here it says, “The study provided conclusive evidence of the decline in sperm count, but it did not seek to identify the causes.” So that seems a problem right off the bat. It’s fine to know there’s a problem. But we want not only to know the causes, but also their solution. Even now, the reasons for the fall remain elusive. There is some evidence that it is caused by environmental factors such as exposure to chemicals through what we eat and drink, or the poor quality of the air we breathe in towns and cities. OK, well, that’s kind of almost like a truism in the sense, but it’s a little bit vague. We all kind of know we have toxicity and we have some problems, but it’s still not really very helpful there.

Here it’s talking about, I’m just scrolling down here, it’s talking about some of the key parameters that are being measured in sperm health and identifies three, that names them the “sperm count”, the sperm “motility”, ie, “can they swim”, and “morphology”, or “are they the right shape”. And, actually, this is a very interesting point here, just scrolling down some more. This is actually, and we’ve seen this is true in the clinic that for some reason, disproportionate amount of attention goes to the woman in fertility cases, and little to none in the men. Now, of course, sometimes a couple will come in where they know there’s a sperm count problem, or something like that, that had testing. And then they kind of will focus on the men. But generally, they don’t go there all too often, even though as we know, from the statistic above, it’s pretty much a 50/50 deal that’s going on. So what it says here, I wanted to read to you,

“The woman actually acts as the therapy for the men’s problem. We are giving an invasive procedure to a person who doesn’t need it, in order to treat another person. That doesn’t happen in any other branch of medicine.”

So yeah, it’s certainly a very interesting phenomena that’s going on with this disproportionate focus on the woman and infertility cases.
So here if I scroll down to “What factors affect male fertility?”, “focused on sperm biology and drug discovery for male subfertility.” So I just wanted to highlight that because, of course, in the in the Western medical model, all attention goes into drug therapies and other invasive therapies, which of course, are sometimes necessary, but in our experience, we get a lot of success in couples using our natural methods for fertility long before anyone even needs to think about going to drugs. So it’s certainly our advice to not rush to drugs, of course, use them when they’re absolutely necessary. But yeah, we’ve had much more success on the natural route. And actually, if you haven’t yet seen our book, you can download our fertility book for free. We have that available at www.NaturalFertilityBook.com. You can get your free copy there and it basically gives all the approaches that we use for enhancing natural fertility.

So just to go further down in the article, it says here,

“Having problems with ejaculation can impact fertility if sperm cannot reach the egg for it to be fertilised. Examples of ejaculatory disorders include premature ejaculation, retrograde ejaculation, where semen is ejaculated into the bladder, as well as failure to ejaculate.”

So on this point, so that’s fine, it identifies the problem, but as to the whole scope of this article isn’t really offering a solution. And again, if you turn to our Natural Fertility book, and specifically in Chapter 8, we give some very specific outlines as what’s going on in basically sexual health for the whole couple, and how these problems can largely be eliminated, again, through the natural methods and again, you can find our book for free at NaturalFertilityBook.com.

And what does it say here, “Male fertility needs to be made a greater priority.” So it says, “Healthy lifestyle choices are among the most important and manageable ways to improve fertility.” Of course, we agree with that, although in this article, it doesn’t really give you any specifics. I mean, it talks about some some general lifestyle factors use of drugs or alcohol or things like that. But we need to get more specific. And again, in Chapter 1 of our book, you can find it, naturalfertilitybook.com. We start you on a path that gets you into all the natural lifestyle factors that bring that fertility into the range that you want and need it to be.

And finally, I do like the the closing statement in this article. “Men,” it says, “also need to be aware that just as they share responsibility with women for birth control, they cannot leave fertility concerns to women. Men can also be the problem.” As we know from the opening of this article, it’s pretty much a 50/50 split statistically. So I just wanted to point out some of the good, some of the bad, from this article. It’s very good at identifying the problem; not so much at the solutions. And as I have here in our comments, you can go right to our website here, our NaturalFertilityBook.com. If you haven’t already, you can download a free copy of our 8 Steps To Natural Fertility. And it really outlines all the practical things that you need to do. It’s not just identifying that there’s a problem then maybe there’s some things you can do about it, but it’s actually a very step by step process.

So anyways, thank you for spending this few minutes with me. I’m going to go back to the regular business of the day. But this article really jumped out at me and I wanted to point out what was useful, what was not so useful on it. So have a good rest for your afternoon. See you later.

Selfish Or Self-Care; Where Is The Healthy Boundary?

Therapeutic education is the third jurisdiction of Heilkunst Medicine. When we’re engaged with patients, we can address the underlying cause with the homeopathic principles, however, to help prevent a reinfection of that old state of mind, the precipitating thought-ware and choices wrought often need to change.

Those old patterns are often the hardest to break. I can’t count how many times an individual, especially women, I work with will state, “I can’t do that, that would be considered selfish.”  As women, especially, we’re fundamentally conditioned to serve others before we take a moment to serve our own needs.

I’m often surprised when referring to a woman taking a little hammock time to simply rest or allocating 20 – 30 minutes away from their family to journal, meditate, write, read, do some yoga, or take a bath is frowned upon. I’m surprised at how often self-care is interpreted as selfish.

When my cup overfloweth, then I’m in a much better position to serve others without an ounce of reservation. By serving my basic needs first, then I can more easily suspend my goal oriented agenda to be present with my children, husband, friends, and patients.

I think where we’re getting caught up is in distinguishing between the selfishness of a narcissist personality as opposed to simple self-love and care. Let’s take a moment to define both and perhaps it will be more telling for you to first distinguish the difference between the harm caused by a narcissist and the love of a self-carer. Perhaps, then, out of knowledge you can give yourself the permission to provide yourself with overtures of generosity.

Narcissistic Character Type

As per Dr. Patricia Frisch, “Narcissistic Character Types can be quite self-engrossed and self-maximizing. His predominant and consistent focus is on his own needs, concerns and wishes. He is an excellent self-promoter who loves the limelight and vies to be seen as special. He expects his needs to take center stage in his relationship to others. He is often upset if those needs are not mirrored perfectly by his partners, friends, or colleagues.”

Arrogance and Selfishness

The motivation of the selfish narcissist is to seek grandiosity and admiration from others. They engage in activities that are hurtful to others based on their phallic drive to be seen. Often these individuals were emasculated as children and are quite fragile underneath their self-centred exterior. They will quite often exhibit fantasies of their own beauty, success, and brilliance in their work and relationships.

Because this characterological type lacks empathy, their personality disorder believes that they’re special or superior, seeking alliances only with those who can affirm their faulty image of themselves. They will generally stop at nothing that enhances their self-esteem. These individuals can’t tolerate defeat, criticism or any feelings of humiliation which cause them to sublimate their ill state into paranoia, antisocial behaviors, and even psychosis.

Symptoms

As per Psychology Today (‘Narcissistic Personality Disorder’) the symptoms of a narcissistic personality need to qualify for five or more of the following:

  • Exaggerates own importance
  • Is preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence or ideal romance
  • Believes he or she is special and can only be understood by other special people or institutions
  • Requires constant attention and admiration from others
  • Has unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment
  • Takes advantage of others to reach his or her own goals
  • Disregards the feelings of others, lacks empathy
  • Is often envious of others or believes other people are envious of him or her
  • Shows arrogant behaviors and attitudes

It is important to note that 50 – 75% of narcissists are male. Also, when teenagers are indicating traits listed above, they’re not necessarily towing the line to becoming narcissistic. Teenagers are often trying on different characterological types in order to effectively separate from their parents to strike a greater self-love and autonomy.

Causes

Certain inherited criteria have to be met in order for a person to develop bonafide selfish, narcissistic tendencies. These can include all/or some of the predisposition to Medhorrinum Genetic Miasm, Lycopodium Constitution and the Chthonic Fear State Veratrum Album. We’ve included the links to our other blogs on these states for your further research.

Treatment

Thankfully with Heilkunst Medicine and Orgonomy were able to treat the underlying cause. Of these states of mind using the law of nature like cures like. Those formerly narcissistic character types do develop less tendencies to self-aggrandize, developing more empathy, warmth, and generosity.

Healthy Self-Care

Hopefully, you can quickly identify that you’re not in fact a selfish narcissist which then allows you to gain full dominion over your self-care. It takes an abundant nature to fully step into the fabric of your birthright. Longevity of spirit in this human organism takes many regular deposits of love, romance, and plenitude.

If it’s still hard for you, perhaps think of your car’s regular maintenance or what about your savings; if you don’t make regular deposits, you wind up deplete without anything left for your retirement. Here are some ways that you can lovingly bestow more self-care on yourself:

Self-Care Ideas For Your Mind

  • Start a gratitude jar for a year – every day write on a piece of paper something you feel thankful for. On New Year’s Day gift yourself the time to read them all.
  • Get rid of the stuff on your list that you don’t really want to do – yup, just draw a line through it, or even better rip it up and dispose of it.
  • Look at your decision making – decide more life choices through your heart instead of your head. If the thing gives you butterflies or little kid excitement, then go for it … if not reject it!
  • Schedule in regular hammock time – set a timer if you have to for 30 minutes of cloud or star gazing.
  • Take a different route – perhaps take that gorgeous parkway by the water instead of the freeway to work.
  • Juicy mindfulness – take some time to really engage with that piece of fruit you’re about to eat, that bird in the tree, the sunset or even brushing your teeth. Feelings, functions, and sensations are a big aspect to being wholly present to your human experience.
  • Playtime – find time to hang with your kids, niece, or nephew. If they’re too busy, find time to skip rope, go to the park with your book, play spontaneously at the park or dance in your living room.
  • Fix something that’s been bugging you – take a moment to change that light bulb, fix that loose button, floss your teeth, or oil that squeaky door.
  • Do a mini meditation – on the bus or in your favorite chair, even a couple of minutes focused on your breathing, thoughts, feelings, or sensations can reset the most harried of days.
  • Happiness infusion – take a bath, make a cup of tea, light a candle or some incense, or simply make a list of the things that make you feel happy.
  • De-clutter – bundle up stuff in your midst or in your closet that no longer bring you pleasure and take them to the local consignment store.
  • Unplug for an hour – ask your hubby or in-laws to take the kids for an hour so that you can go switch to “airplane” mode. Resist the temptation to look at your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram accounts. Just be.
  • Buck your comfort zone – strike up a conversation with someone you’ve never met on the bus, or try putting on your headphones and listening to meaningful podcast.
  • Mute negative folk in your social media feeds – you don’t have to unfriend them, they’ll just stop showing up with their hate speech injecting poison into your day.

Self-Care Ideas For Your Body

  • Oxygenate with deep breathing – trying sighing out loud, breathing out from your hair follicles to your toes, let the in-breathe naturally revitalize you by coming back in naturally. Notice how you’re being breathed!
  • Get your jiggy on – dance, sing, play, stretch, and have juicy connected sex with your beloved partner or with yourself. Take your time!
  • Pace – head outside for a bike ride, walk in nature, or do some interval training depending on your blood type.
  • Do a cleanse – find a day to do a day long cleanse using
    • greens/chia seeds
    • lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne powder (Master’s Cleanse)
    • naturally fermented pickle or sauerkraut juice (no vinegar/sugar)
  • Start a Keto/Paleo diet, cutting out all grains and sugars while respecting your blood type diet.
  • Skin brush before bed and and when you wake up. Use a natural bristle brush with circular motions.
  • Go for Bowen – a soft tissue release protocol, like a massage without bullying the body’s musculature.
  • Sun bathe – we know that 20 minutes of sunlight a day is highly beneficial. At first you may have to start in the shade and acclimatize to direct sun. If you’re in a northern climate in the winter, supplement with 2,000 IU’s of vitamin D3 per day
  • Consume naturally fermented foods – kombucha, water kefir, naturally fermented sauerkrauts or pickles, like Strub’s or Bubbies, are highly recommended. Dr. Mercola sent his homemade kraut off to the lab to find over 90 trillion probiotics in a tablespoon.
  • Introduce essential oils to your regimen – take a mini-course on-line or read one of our many books to familiarize yourself with essential oils and how to use them to improve your physical and mental well-being.
  • Introduce flower essences  to your regimen – take a mini-course on-line or read one of our many books to familiarize yourself with essential oils and how to use them to improve your physical and mental well-being.
  • Take a nap – enough said!
  • Laugh yourself silly – watch some crazy cat videos, bloopers, or read some Dilbert or Calvin and Hobbes. Some Netflix offerings with good comedians are fun too. We also enjoy the podcast, No Such Thing As a Fish.

Self-Care For The Soul

  • Ask your inner child … – ask the little kid in you what they’d like to do today?  Perhaps they’d like to take you off to the library, a new coffee shop, museum, art gallery, or go for a walk by the river.
  • Look for beauty – find ten unexpected beautiful things on your way to or home from work.
  • Meditate on your feelings – sit for 5 to 10 minutes and focus solely on how you’re feeling in the moment. You can even do this at work in the bathroom stall if necessary.
  • Journal – check out Julia Cameron’s ‘Morning Pages’ and sit down with a dedicated notebook. Write for 5 to10 minutes without an ounce of judgment.
  • Find the healthy radiators in your midst – find resonant folk to hang out with who radiate love, enthusiasm, and positivity. Eliminate the drains on your mental/emotional economy who suck you down their proverbial toilet with pessimism, negatively robbing you of your energy.
  • Love on an animal – hang out with your cat on the couch or ask a friend if you can take their dog for a walk to the park. Petting or stroking an animal can be very beneficial for the soul.
  • Get some lovin’ – ask 3 friends to tell you what they love about you.
  • Capture your goals – find some time to write down the 25 things that you love to engage with where you lose all track of time. Review them and see if you can fashion a side business out of any of them. Many successful entrepreneurs started this way!  Read the book, The Map by Boni Lonsburry for more on this.
  • Home spa day – take a day on the weekend, or perhaps call in sick, and enjoy a mental health day. Don your robe, take a long bath with a bath-bomb, give yourself a pedi and or mani, and a facial with all natural products.
  • Take a mini-staycation – tell folks that you’ll be away and then plan to be totally spontaneous with yourself the whole weekend.

Self-Care Mini Bites

  • Take a moment to connect in with yourself even in the midst of a conversation – watch your inclination to over commit. Set more healthy boundaries around yourself and your time. Give yourself permission to say no or tell a white lie to protect yourself.
  • Delight in small pleasures – watch the sunset until it’s done, observe a baby with their loving parent, notice the water on your skin when you wash your hands,  cut a wildflower and bring it inside for beside your bed.
  • See if your holding your breath – practice more mindful deep breathing
  • Grab a nourishing drink –  perhaps skip the coffee or tea and get a more energizing probiotic drink like kombucha or water kefir. Think of it like an investment in your microbiome bank!

My hope is that you can see more clearly how it’s not even possible for you to suffer selfish, narcissistic tendencies and that self-care is necessary to promoting more love and life in you. Only human beings who are wholly full of self-nurturance, lacking in perpetual stress, can truly care for others in their midst in a whole fashion, without creating more symptoms or negative side-effects.

As women, and men too, it is important that we invest in our mental/emotional and physical self-care so that our cups can truly overfloweth in the face of everyday stress and challenges. Self-care enables us to remain deeply centred, with a bolstered sense of autonomy, in the face of external tumultuousness exhibited in the media, allopathy (Big Pharma), political arenas, and economics too. When we have a sound investment of self, we can pretty much weather any storm in our midst.

Increasing Fertility With Tissue Salts

Infertility is often caused by poor mineral absorption and acidic pH levels in both partners. Biochemic cell salts can help absorb the minerals your body needs to conceive.

Dr. Schuessler’s Theory

Biochemic cell salts or biochemic tissues salts were discovered in the nineteenth century by Dr. Schuessler – a medical doctor and homeopath. His research indicated that a person’s natural state of health will enable them to heal itself by restoring the underlying imbalance caused by any biochemical imbalance. There are twelve main mineral compounds orchestrating your health at the subterranean level.

Schuessler discovered that when there is a deficiency of one or more of these twelve mineral, such as calcium, sodium, potassium or iron in the body, symptoms and abnormal conditions can result.

Our Modern Diet

The minerals in your diet should, ideally, come from organically grown plant foods and should be eaten in their natural state. Unfortunately, due to incorrect treatment of the soil, shipping conditions and added chemicals, the mineral content of fruits and vegetables that you find at most grocery stores is very poor.

Industrial farming is not sufficiently replenishing soils depleted of essential minerals, and due to depletion, we often have to take it in our own hands to supplement what we’re not getting naturally through foods. Biochemic cell salts (also called Biochemic Tissue Salts) such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, etc. need to be bioavailable in the body. They’re needed for healthy metabolic functioning, body growth and repair as well as creating conditions ripe for conception.

Furthermore, our everyday cooking methods can also reduce how much nutrition we’re able to derive from our foods. Most people don’t know that it’s best to eat 80% of their foods in their raw form. Most modern folk are actually starving from lack of nutrition and important minerals even though they have plenty to eat.

Biochemic Salts Increase The Absorption of Body Minerals

Biochemic cell salts are also called biochemic tissue salts, or simply tissue salts. Some practitioners call them Schuessler salts. We typically recommend Hyland’s Bio XII Tissue Salts to our patients.

They can be bought at many holistic pharmacies or purchased online. The recommendation is to take 3-4 of the tiny, chewable, lactose discs 2-3 times per day. Simply follow the directions on the bottle.

Tissue salts are designed to address mineral deficiencies by helping the body to absorb free-floating minerals, which are otherwise not being absorbed. Even if you are taking a high quality mineral supplement, your body may still not assimilate those minerals efficiently.

The role of biochemic cell salts is to stimulate the cells to uptake the necessary inorganic mineral salts from your healthy diet of whole foods. Fruit, vegetables and meats are your best choices while limiting simple carbohydrates, coffee, alcohol and sugars. Some allopathic drugs may also inhibit absorption of minerals.

Increasing Your Chances of Getting Pregnant

Difficulty getting pregnant can be associated with lack of minerals the body needs. Biochemic cell salts are good for everyone, but they are especially important during the preconception period.

They are safe and effective for women during menstruation, pregnancy, and lactation, when the need of important minerals for the body increases.
Infants and children can also benefit from cell salts to ensure proper development of bones, teeth, blood cells, nerves and muscles.

What are The Twelve Tissue Salts?

The twelve tissue salts are: Calc Phos, Calc Fluor, Calc Sulph, Mag Phos, Ferr Phos, Kali Phos, Kali Mur, Kali Sulph, Nat Phos, Nat Sulph, Nat Mur, Silica.

These biochemic tissue salts are often confused with homeopathic products, but they are actually part of the biochemic system of medicine, a branch of homeopathy.

Homeopathic medicine is based on the treatment of symptoms using the “law of similars,” while biochemic salts are recommended on the basis of mineral imbalances or deficiencies due to metabolic dysfunction; or the law of opposites. When this balance is not present, the body functions can be compromised.

With proper supplementation of Schuessler’s Tissue Salts, you will increase your chances of becoming pregnant easily and naturally.

Is “Perpetual Summer” Killing Your Fertility?

We’re really still just cave men and women. Although technology seems to evolve at light speed, your physiology is still running on a very ancient operating system. If you don’t adapt yourself properly to our modern condition, your cave person physiology will easily become infertile.

More specifically, I’m talking about the phenomenon that T.S. Wiley calls “perpetual summer”.

“Strawberries and cream” by Alan Cleaver
https://flic.kr/p/4CkSYt

Our life has been forever altered same since the invention of the electric light bulb. We have overcome the tyranny of sunrise and sunset. Our work day is no longer constrained by these natural limits. We’ve become a  hyper-productive culture.

We’re able to do our workouts at the gym at 5am under fluorescent light bulbs. Then, if we like, we can work a 10 or 12 hour day under artificial lighting. We then return home, where our evening recreation is full of “screen time” – televisions, laptops, phones, and tablets keep us all lit up and stimulated.

This is what T.S. Wiley is referring to as “perpetual summer”, in her book “Lights Out”. In a state of nature, we get a lot more daylight hours in the summer, and a lot less in the winter. The long days of summer, and the long nights of winter created the cave person hormonal rhythm we still respond to now.

In natural summer conditions, there’s a primary message driving our physiology – ‘Prepare for winter!’. All the natural carbs and sugars are mostly available to us in summer. Fruits and berries, and other harvestable grains are readily available. This is exactly what we need – a way to build up stores of fat to keep us going during the lean months of winter.

Insulin, and the whole range of hormones that govern your sleep, sugar metabolism, and reproductive rhythms are having a party all summer long. That’s how it’s supposed to be. But now when winter comes – but the lights don’t go out – and carbs and sugar are always available – your body thinks it’s still summer all year long.

Messing with this primal rhythm can very quickly turn you infertile. In “perpetual summer”, your body is actually experiencing “perpetual stress”. And a stressed body sends nature the message, “Red alert! We’re stressed, and so we better not bring a baby into these dangerous conditions!”

I’ve translated this into plain English. The actual language that your body speaks is a complex rhythm of hormonal signals that get all out of proportion during perpetual summer.

Tips for reversing “perpetual summer”, and staying fertile:

  • Eat more seasonally. Fresh fruits and healthy carbs more in the summer, and more animal fats and proteins in the winter.
  • Set up your bedroom as a ‘sleep sanctuary’. Pretend you’ve gone back to your cave. Use low lighting, and NO screen time in bed. (Besides, that’s prime cuddling time!).
  • Maximize your sleep, particularly in winter. As T.S. Wiley says, “Sleep every night as long as you can without getting fired or divorced.”

Heilkunst Principles Regarding Antibiotics

“Le microbe n’est rien, le terrain est tout.” (The microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything) –the last words of Louis Pasteur (father of the “Germ Theory” of disease).

My son was on a steady stream of antibiotics the first two years of his life. He suffered severe throat and respiratory infections every time he cut a tooth. We were destroying his health. Each round of penicillin destroyed healthy gut bacteria. His immune function was being pummelled.

It wasn’t until we ‘peeled the onion’ of his own sequential timeline of traumas using Heilkunst principles (including homeopathy), AND started him on several broad spectrum probiotics, that we began to see monumental improvements. In fact, he was so sick and not thriving, he was hospitalized several times for being ill before we addressed the root cause.

Louis Pasteur and Germ Theory

The word antibiotic comes from the Greek “anti”, meaning “against” and “bios”, meaning “life” (a bacterium is a life form). Antibiotics are also known as antibacterials, and they are drugs used to treat infections caused by bacteria. Bacteria are tiny organisms that can sometimes cause illness in humans and animals.

Louis Pasteur had very good press in the mid-1800’s. The guiding idea of his germ theory was to address infection by killing the microbe. It targets the germ as the enemy, and calls for medicine to destroy it. The main presumptions here are that the germ is the disease, and that infection is the cause of illness.

All of Western Medicine is pretty much based on this mechanical and materialistic view of Pasteur’s theory. However, if we go back to 19th century France for a moment, we might be able to recapture where the train derailed.

Antoine Bechamp and Cellular Theory

There was a lesser known fellow named Antoine Bechamp. He didn’t have as good a press agent as Pasteur. He actually noted that the germs that Pasteur was all up in arms about were actually opportunistic in nature; they were shape shifters so to speak. In his “cellular theory” of disease, he also noted that they mostly existed inside of us in a symbiotic relationship and that they only began to manifest when the tissue of the organism was damaged.

Bechamp recognized a chicken and egg phenomenon in that the bacteria only raised a ruckus when the terrain became compromised. They were an outcome, not a root cause of the disease.

As a result, Bechamp touted that the killing of germs would only cause them to explode further and shape shift, so best if you actually cultivate a healthy bio-terrain instead. He promoted health through diet, hygiene, exposure to fresh air, and of course exercise. The idea was that if the person had a healthy, natural immune function the germs wouldn’t take their opportunistic cue from damaged tissue.

A Compromised Bio-terrain

Infections only show up when the organism’s bio-terrain is compromised. A good example is when you go hiking in the woods with a whole group of people. Only one or two will be badly attacked and bitten by mosquitos. Why is this? If you were to study the phenomenon, you might find that this individual is also prey to colds, sore throats, earaches, and flus.

These germs are responding to the weakness in the organism … nature only understands one gesture; if you’re not building up your bio-terrain with probiotics and healthy regimen, she feels she has permission to take you back from when you came. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. She doesn’t moralize, she’s just doing her job as efficiently and expediently as possible.

If you want to really get gnarly and graphic, you can further this thought to maggots. Again, they only spontaneously appear to help in the breakdown process of an already far-gone organism. The materialists just want to attack the maggots, however, the root cause remains at large and they’ll simply keep coming back.

Cancer operates totally on the same principle. As per John Robbins’ book, Reclaiming Your Health, chemotherapy and radiation have less than three percent efficacy for precisely the same reasons that we’ve become antibiotic resistant as a society.

By treating the cause, on the law of nature “like cures like”, without causing an ounce of harm, while also supplying the body with the right supplements, lots of probiotics, and naturally fermented foods, you can actually restore an individual to health without calling to battle errant bacteria, viruses, cancers, parasites, worms, or even the more disgusting maggots.

Pasteur and Bechamp had a long and often bitter rivalry around the true cause of illness and ultimately Pasteur’s ideas were accepted and inculcated as true into the materialistic mindset. I could spend the rest of this lifetime explaining why this was, and still is. The price we’ve paid as germaphobes is that we have one of the highest rates of infectious disease in our history. How many kids do you know who’ve had ear tubes inserted to drain off fluids before causing infection? How many cases of strep throat and bronchitis do you know about each winter?

Vaccines, antibiotics, antibacterial soaps, and other antimicrobials are like a scourge waged on microbes … the wrong enemy. You may find it as interesting as I do that on his deathbed, Pasteur actually withdrew his own germ theory in favour of Bechamp, “Le microbe n’est rien, le terrain est tout.” (The microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything)” –the last words of Louis Pasteur (father of the “Germ Theory” of disease).

Bechamp also spoke to pleomorphism, a phenomenon where bacterial nemesis will shape shift as illustrated above. Trying to combat them effectively has been the misguided torch carried by the allopathic materialistic scientists since time immemorial. They don’t show signs of quitting anytime either and God knows they’ve got a lot invested financially in you continuing to believe their germ theory.

Dr. Gunther Enderlein and Fungi Theory

Another phenomenologist, Dr. Gunther Enderlein (1872–1968), whose work spun off from Bechamp believed that all mammals contained the highly devolved remnants of at least two families of invaders – originally stemming from the mold fungi Mucor racemosus and Aspergillus niger.

Enderlein believed that each of these fungi, through the process of seeking a form in which they could exist with us in stable symbiosis, vastly influenced our evolution, especially in the areas of complex skeletal development and the self-healing, through clotting, of our circulatory system.

For Enderlein, this sword had another edge – one that he perceived as a medical disaster. However, seen through the filter of the Ambimorphic Paradigm, we can understand the same facts in a different way. What appeared to Enderlein as the tragic origin of chronic illness can really be seen as the misdirection of an important ecological adaptation.

What’s more significant is that if this perspective is correct, it may well give us one of the most powerful tools imaginable to influence our own health and healing. If you remove the blockage to cure, on the basis of natural law, you not only remove the arch nemesis, but you also restore the bioterrain to its original state of grace.


“Santiago Ramón y Cajal” by ZEISS Microscopy https://flic.kr/p/ef2SF6

Through many years of painstaking research, Enderlein came to believe that our body fluids, such as blood plasma, lymph, and cellular cytoplasm, contain particles that can be induced to reorganize into more complex biological forms, ultimately giving rise to bacteria and fungi not previously present. This is reminiscent of Béchamp’s experiments conducted more than half a century before.

Enderlein called this phenomenon ‘probaenogeny’, and made it a cornerstone of both his theoretical and clinical work in pleomorphic microbiology. Enderlein demonstrated that beyond a certain level of developmental complexity, all the emergent pleomorphic forms leading towards Mucor racemosus or Aspergillus niger were pathogenic and degenerative.

In fact, Enderlein argued that it was the conversion of the benign, devolved forms of these fungi into their pathogenic, cellular forms that constituted the deepest roots of all chronic illness. Enderlein demonstrated ways of understanding challenges as diverse as cancer, diabetes, tuberculosis, and glaucoma as different facets of the same types of internal, pleomorphic imbalances.


“blood-1813410” by Mike Goad https://flic.kr/p/Dq54m9

In particular, the mature bacterial and fungal expressions that Enderlein isolated from the blood of diseased individuals were highly saprophytic – which is to say they’re self-creating and self-sustaining through the creation of their own nourishment from organic decay within the body. He went on to describe the original invasion of these two molds into our ancestral chain as the, “…greatest medical tragedy in evolutionary history.”

What This Means for Me and You

All this to say, you can cart your child off to the allopath is they run a fever, however, what enemy are you hoping to target? If we understand the true roots of pathogenesis as above and we also know that medicine has only three possible actions; suppressive, palliative and curative, then don’t we have an ethical responsibility to remove the blockage to cure, strengthen the bio-terrain, and prevent the pleomorphic invasions in future?

By wholly understanding the Ambimorphoric Paradigm I believe we’re given the keys to The Kingdom. The essence of our health depends on acting in accordance with natural law and avoiding shooting the messengers, angering the substrata of bacterial pathogens and creating a bigger mess to try and mop up further down the pleomorphic line.

Disclaimer: Regarding the controversial topic of vaccinations and antibiotics … we at Arcanum Wholistic Clinic take a completely neutral stance on the topic even though our own son was damaged severely by vaccines and antibiotics. We neither advocate nor discourage their use for those individuals who seek our advice, leaving that up to the patient to decide. We do this mainly due to legal reasons being that it is against the law for us to advocate one position vs. another. We only ask that you become as educated on this topic as possible and make your own informed decision. We will always respect your decision either way. Many of our patients have asked us to address the antibiotic (and vaccine) insults on their sequential timeline using homeopathic principles.

Five Homeopathic Remedies for Insomnia

When sleep issues arise, there are often easy fixes – given that they are not being caused by a deeper, chronic condition. I’ve included some of the top homeopathic insomnia remedies below.

“Sad man holding pillow” by Vic https://flic.kr/p/aSDdHK

Aconite: Have you recently been exposed to a cold, dry wind? This is the most typical trigger for an aconite state. Especially the kind of cold that comes on suddenly, and unexpectedly, like at the change of seasons. While aconite is a common remedy for many cough and cold symptoms, it also addresses a specific type of insomnia. The Aconite insomnia is extremely restless, and may even feel anxious. The fast pace in denser urban centers may also create an aconite state in your nervous system. Tossing and turning, and even bad dreams may fill your night in this state. Around the hour of midnight is where you may feel some of the worst of the aconite state expressing itself.

Arnica: A classic arnica situation is one where the day and night schedule has been turned upside-down, as in shift work. Especially if you are on rotating shifts from one week to the next. Even if you’re now on day shifts, the old night shift disruption to your circadian rhythm will often be retained as a cellular memory.

Shock can also be a primary trigger for an arnica state. This can be either from being directly involved in a car accident, or just witnessing one. Any form of physical or emotional shock will trigger an arnica state. Sleep is not restful, and the bed may even feel too hard to be able to get comfortable.

Chamomilla: In one word, the chamomilla state is ‘fussy’. Your partner may be feeling fed up with your ever-changing demands, when in this state. You might feel sleepy in the evening, but then suddenly wide awake once you go to bed. The trigger for this state can be physical pain, such as from a recent injury, or from menstrual cramps. Restlessness and complaining are the  top characteristics. This state may be triggered by a recent troubling emotional event, which is not easy to let go of. The characteristic feeling is “I want something, but don’t know what…”.

Coffea: The keyword for coffea is ‘overstimulation’. It could even be the case that you’ve had too much coffee today, and now can’t wind down for sleep. Coffea is the remedy you need. Similarly, you may have been watching over stimulating TV shows before bed, or gotten embroiled in a heated debate on social media. Just recall the buzz you’ve ever had after drinking too much coffee. Anything which simulates this experience qualifies you for a dose of homeopathic coffea.

Nux Vomica: is for what I call the ‘jack in the box’ syndrome. You’ll fall asleep for a spell of time, but then keep popping back up all night long.  There’s hypersensitivity to noise, and just about anything else will keep waking you up. Chances are that you’ll wake with a fully formed to do list in your head.  This state is an unfortunate reality for many who have to take their work home with them, and effectively always feel ‘on call’ like an ambulance driver. The “off switch” has been deactivated in the nervous system.

As I mentioned above, the correct homeopathic remedy can put an end to your insomnia rapidly – given that there isn’t a deeper, chronic health issue that needs to be addressed. If it’s hard to match your insomnia picture to one of the descriptions above, then you may need a more comprehensive assessment for your condition.
