I used to suffer food cravings, too. After a day full of serving patients and my family, I used to finally sit down (well after the sun had gone down) and enjoy a morsel of dark chocolate. Often times, it was well beyond a morsel!
It was like a negative spiral as then I’d have trouble sleeping or be up a time or two to urinate in the night which did not help my feeling of being rested the next day. I was stuck in a loop of need without emotional fulfillment.
The bottom line was that the more I needed the chocolate, the less I felt rested. I was living to eat, not eating to live.
The Cancer state of mind actually craves chocolate. In fact, stay out of their way when they’re en route to their fix, as they’ll slay dragons bare handed to get it. Sound familiar?
The Cancer state of mind is one where you rescue others to the exclusion of self, are living the unlived life, and are feeling resigned that this is your fate from here on in. That was my story too. The chocolate gave me a tiny illusion, just for the moment that this wasn’t true.
It seemed like much more energy to resolve my plight outright than I had. I knew more fats would help, I also knew more tender acts of self-love and fulfillment were also key. But where to start?
That is when I took a dose of Carcinosin and Chocolatum and made a list of what I needed more of in my life. I went after “the feeling.” If I was going to do this thing called life, long-term, how would I imagine a better state of grace for myself?
Well the answer to this has spanned many blogs, a couple of books, and a decade. Give us a call as we’re happy to share the answers we found with you, verbally, based on your own struggles. It’s what we do for our patients, but not to the exclusion of having solved it for ourselves first. Are you ready?
I’m not really one for New Year’s resolutions. I don’t even start new protocols on a Monday after I realized years ago that I was setting myself up for failure if starting something new with a bang. My resonance organs dictate a mindfulness in motion that begs me to be accountable to myself each and every day; self-love is a continually evolving gesture of self-honour and self-care.
After sitting for three days a week in clinic I typically feel compelled to go on a mini-pilgrimage, usually this takes form as a good 10-12 km romp into the town or hills where I live… and my step counter will show about 17,000 steps by the end of the day. Jeff and I generally enjoy the same jaunt together on the weekend. During the week, I tend to engage in an hour of something each day; I love swimming, hiking the cobbled streets where we live, taking photographs, and enjoying an hour of yoga twice a week to ensure I’m maintaining upper body strength.
I do not love plank poses, although I do love the way they make me feel when I’m regularly engaged with my practice. A thirty minute daily meditation also is part of my regular regimen. You may ask how I find the time… well, it has taken me twenty years to unhook from a life of obligation and now my health soars, with few supplements, by allowing my spirit to be free of living totally out of obligation. A decade ago, my goal was to craft a life that I no longer felt I needed a vacation from, and this goal has most definitely been achieved!
I will take Vitamin D3 in the winter months only if I’m getting insufficient sunlight, although for the last two years we’ve lived in Mexico in winter, so I don’t bother much with this anymore. If I notice any thyroid challenges, I’ll take kelp and nascent iodine to help on those occasions. I also take zinc periodically, as well as some greens powder (spirulina/chlorella). I drink 2-3 litres of spring water a day which helps to keep me feeling clear, calm, and restored. I’ve always been a very thirsty constitutional type and so drinking a lot, especially in the mornings, really helps to set me right for the remainder of the day.
Mostly I eat quite scantily, fasting a couple days a week for most of the day; as I get into my more “senior” years I find that this approach helps keep my mind and body running optimally. At this high altitude of seven thousand feet above sea level, I sleep hard and soundly given the lower oxygen levels, and seven to eight hours a night without waking is beyond restorative to me. The less I eat, the better I sleep!
Being happy and in love with my partner and my life help a lot. We enjoy great recreation such as attending the orchestra, travelling with friends to a spa or organic farm in the country, or just lying around and reading. Having tea and discussing art, photography, principles or the concepts of Heilkunst enthuse me no end and it’s great that I get to do this with Jeff. I’m also adored, nurtured and well loved on, and kissed thoroughly with intent every day. I wish every human being benefitted from this much loving and fulfillment.
Lastly, I’m rocking what I’m ordained to be. I used to wake with whole poems in my head as a child. I’ve always loved to write and it is a big part of who I am and the vehicle I use to serve others by crafting books in natural medicine and Heilkunst. I’ve also always been profoundly intuitive and so I use these skills to diagnose my patient’s deeper issues, and then use my knowledge and compassion to help them get to where they’d like to go with regard to the resolution of their chronic ills.
Jeff and I both love hearing your monthly impressions as you work through the tangle of your challenges and wins each month. It is a living model of rejuvenation similar to a fever event, when your child speaks for the first time as they shed the Autism diagnosis. You might now be able to imagine what it means when a patient tells us that she has found the love of her life as a result of going through this system of medicine, and that she no longer suffers chronic fatigue because she also let go of that gnarly day job where her creativity was suppressed.
It is our resolution to be healthy enough to continue to support you in the ways that you expect, exacting the healing and curing principles of Heilkunst Medicine to the very best of our abilities. We love serving you and it means so much to us that you keep coming back monthly and also refer your friends and family. Our hearts are filled with purpose and meaning because of you.
Recently re-fitting out my first book, The Path To Cure, as a new audio book for a podcast was a ginormous 18 month long project. Jeff asked me to write a brand new intro to every chapter being revealed to a brand new audience weekly. As a result, I had to relive every one of my words written, wrought with so much pain and suffering from the past. For this month’s newsletter theme on Cancer, I chose to decorate the banner with the passion flower instead of the daffodil. Perhaps below, and in our blogs contained herein, you’ll understand the dynamic reason for this.
The truth is that what you’re destined to be is buried like a passionflower seed in your loins and to fully actuate your passion means first finding your individual seed, discerning what it means, and then providing the conditions ripe for it to grow. Think about what you’ve engaged with in life where you truly lose all track of time. If you still can’t figure it out, pick up Boni Lonsburry’s book, The Map to a Responsive Universe Where Dreams Really Do Come True.
Boni acknowledges that while not everyone knows what they want to be, she correctly cites that everyone knows how they want to feel. By holding the charge of feeling and tossing over board your beliefs that you’re value is not great enough to receive such abundance, you can create the circumstances ripe for what you feel ordained to be. Your passionflower will begin to self-actuate and seemingly random opportunities will start to crystallize.
Cancer grows in an environment devoid of heat (resonant sex), oxygen (principled recreation) and love (true desire function). The opposite is the recipe for a fully orgasmic life!
Sugar and chocolate are suppressive and a function of an oral block. She just can’t get the sweet passion out of life! Eating sugar and chocolate is really a sad attempt to garner the sweetness from life externally instead of through primary drives internally. You’re not wholly expressing your feelings to yourself, or others in your life, or fully actualizing your love function (your passion) through to a full fruition (the fruit itself). You have to have juicy sex with the whole of your world.
A primary drive as per full actualization is feeling so connected to your love function that you make no excuses to create what you love confidently and share it with the world unabashedly. This God-imbued talent or gift is hidden in your generative capacity and as you go through Heilkunst treatment, it will get harder and harder to suppress it. Your passion flower can not be suppressed long-term without symptoms.
Don’t be surprised if you suddenly start doodling while on the phone, or magically waking up with whole poems written in your head, or feel driven to teach others how to ferment their own foods, sew baby’s clothing and sell them, coach a fellow mom at her birth, or suddenly pick up a musical instrument, dance, sing, teach, research or become an astronaut. These are just examples I’m thinking of from specific patients I’ve served.
Perhaps this year, you’re poised to find the man or woman of your dreams to have the kind of spiritual and romantic sex that you’ve always dreamed of. Don’t ever settle for anything less, as the Cancer state of mind will reduce your bar, sublimating your true desire function into watching television, eating non-resonant junk foods, doing things for family members to the exclusion of yourself more out of obligation than love or working that tortuous 9-5 desk job in that 10 x 12 cubicle with the daily 3 hour commute.
Cancer is a state of mind defined as the disease of resignation. You’ll hear her say things like, “Well, if I don’t do it, no one else will. And certainly no one can do it as well as me.” They’re exhausted, burnt out. When you listen to them, your internal pathetic meter will be activated. I know, as I used to provoke this response in others. Due to my lack of inner guidance system, folks would happily step up to take over and tell me precisely their agenda and how I’d want to come along.
Cancer loves a false authority which is why I gravitated to false patriarchal constructs like Judaism and also worked for the Government. If someone asked me how I was, I put my child in front of me like a mascot for my un-lived life. The truth was, I didn’t really know. I was just that pathetic an I ended up with an inch and a half round tumour in my left breast as an emblem of how I was devoid of self-nurturing and a real sense of my self.
Let us know if you feel you’re suffering the same and we’ll provide you with the therapeutic keys to harness your own passion flower. We all deserve to wholly self-actualize. I should know … and, oh baby, I do. It’s why I stepped up onto “The Path to Cure.”
This morning, I was treating a patient for their “birth” event on their timeline. Noted on their birth was that “Mom had rheumatic fever when I was born.”
As it turns out, the CoRe scan I ran for them indicated the homeopathic remedy for treating Scarlet Fever (Scarlatinum). I wondered if there was a connection with rheumatic fever?
“Fever” by Lorenzo https://flic.kr/p/57fAZk
To verify, I looked up rheumatic fever at the Mayo Clinic website which said:
Rheumatic fever is an inflammatory disease that can develop as a complication of inadequately treated strep throat or scarlet fever. Strep throat and scarlet fever are caused by an infection with group A streptococcus bacteria.
[Emphasis added in text.]
This is one of the reasons I love using the CoRe – to help me sort through more complex treatment plans, and to provide reassurance that we are on track in the patient’s timeline, and that nothing was missed, or needs to be treated at a deeper potency than normal.
I had another brand new patient explain to me yesterday, “You know, Dr. Ally, I’ve been putting off starting treatment with you because I was afraid you’d make me give up my use of Cannabis.” I smiled at the other end of the Skype line as I looked into his eyes. I saw both his courage and his shame vying for space on his face. I thought how beautiful he is to be able to admit such a thing to me after knowing me for less than an hour. He’ll use that courage, I ruminate.
“Actually,” I respond in the usual way, “I would encourage you to continue with your normal usage as if we’ve not met or spoken today. You’re not going to give up something until you feel something juicier emerge and rise up in your life to displace the drug use. I’m pretty confident that as your self-love, creativity and joie de vivre leaps forward through Heilkunst Medicine, you’ll naturally put more and more time and space between yourself and your vices. I’m also pretty sure that the drug use isn’t the only addiction you employ in your life.”
The patient looked back at me with shifting eyes, however, and now I could see the fear. I acknowledged, “I know you’re afraid. You wanted me to tell you to get off the drug for your health or Heilkunst won’t work, but you’ve been bucking false authority your whole life and you wanted to put me in the position to be precisely the same archetype for you telling you what to do. You’d only rebel against this, so I won’t be that person for you. I want to plumb a different relationship with you, letting you know that either way, I’m not attached to the outcome.”
I see him take a breath before I continue,” You see, I can’t just meet that old expectation. We both know that a true, permanent cure is not an outside in phenomenon. It naturally comes from the inside out. Yes, I will start the process of detox for you by putting the homeopathic remedy ‘Cannabis’ into your ‘Drainage and Organ Support Dropper’, however, it won’t be me ultimately picking up that bag of pot, rolling the joint or choosing to smoke it or not. A reinfection with the drug is entirely your own choice. However, I will send you a few resources for you to look over regarding the longer term effects are of pot on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health are.”
Now he was looking at me like a curious child, the fear had ebbed, “Ok, I will just try and take it day by day and see if I can try and avoid my habit.” I knew he was having trouble with the concept with the number of “trys” he’d used in his sentence, “Actually to reiterate, I don’t want you to apply your will to quit or diminish just yet as you don’t yet trust yourself. It’s ok, it will come. If you try to quit now, you’ll probably not succeed, and you’ll feel like crap, a failure again, beat on yourself and that is the last thing we want at this juncture. That is an old, karmic pattern, my friend, and it is that loop that we need to jimmy you out of first.”
He smiles, “I can see that you have trust that I can change. Why does that scare me so bad?” I feel a tears rent at the back of my eyes, “Because, Love, you’ve not felt a huge number of self-marshalled successes to date in your life. So your inner trust and faith is a little tarnished. I know because this was also true for me too. Way back awhile ago, I was just like you. I was you. I used to live to eat, now I eat to live and I’ve cultivated a life so full of self-love, beauty, connection and creativity that food no longer has the same pull for me.”
“Wow,” he exclaims, “Thanks for sharing that. I just assumed that since you treat others that you’ve always had your shit together.” I think, ‘if he only knew.’ As I look at the homeopathic prescription I’ve created for him thus far, I ask him if there is anything else he’d like me to help him detox from and I tap the keys of my computer in answer, “Coffea, Alcoholus, Tabacum, Arsenicum, Sacc. Alb., Nat. Mur., Nux Vom.,” for his other addictions to coffee, alcohol, commercial tabacco (which contains arsenic) on rare occasions, sugar, salt and I add Nux the homeopathic helper for addictions. I add all this to his Drainage and Organ Support Combo. dropper and feel a sense of completion in that realm.
His Emotional Support will have remedies for nurturing (mother’s milk) and self love (increasing his inner value), along with some carefully chosen Flower Essences which I know will gently shift his mind from lack of self-honour to a greater sense of grace. I will also look forward to addressing his timeline of emotional and physical traumas as this will decidedly get the chronic (tonic) diseases out of the way, naturally providing him with more free will.
As we finish up, he lets me know the session wasn’t as daunting as he thought. I smile wide and let him know that he did just great and that I’ll get his remedies off to our pharmacist later this afternoon and that they’ll be shipped out to him tomorrow morning.
I also let him know that he can call my office anytime and I’d be happy to connect with him should he need before our next follow-up session in a month’s time. I consciously radiate love and care towards my new patient and hold in my mind’s eye his perfect transformation with ease and gentle, but illuminating, healing reactions.
I see his future, healthy, effulgent self come more to life, animating him with new possibilities. He’ll find his inner and then outer connections. He’ll be more potent with his choices and subsequently carry them through. I see it in this new connection I’ve made with this other human being on his evolutionary path to greater freedom, his path to cure.
It is not right to mutilate the genitals of any human being. It is a ruinous act designed to dull sensation in the male phallus so that he’s rendered more compliant by the standards set by religiosity and false authority. There are no studies that can confirm that a circumcised male produces greater cleanliness. These are myths that are ripe to be snipped from the landscape of our modern consciousness.
In this present day, even Judaism denounces the practice of Brit Milahs (ritual circumcision), given that eventually certain rituals run out of justification. Heck, even women can now be ordained as rabbis. If you hear a Jew, or anyone else, stating that ritual circumcision is justified on the basis of tradition, perhaps point out that the following are also “traditions” and were considered crimes, some punishable by death, according to the Torah (the first 5 books shared by the Christian Bible):
Cheating on your husband. (Lev. 20:10).
Fornicating – if you’re female. (Deut 22:21).
Homosexuality (Lev. 20:13).
Blasphemy (Lev. 24:16)
Insulting one’s parents. (Exod. 21:17)
Disobeying one’s parents. (Deut 21:18-21
Slavery (Exod 21:1-11) (Deut. 15:12-18)
Animal and human sacrifices. (Lev. 4:3, 4:23, 4:32, 5:7, 5:15; Judges 11:20, 11:33)
Divorce for men only. (Deut 24:1)
Female subservience to men including obedience to every order and no right to refuse sex. (Genesis 3:16)
Evolution is a function of human development and our basic human rights, not to cause harm, are inherent to our dominion under God; especially if it involves our physical, mental, and spiritual bodies. As educated and enlightened beings, it is our right to defend our perfect babies against medical or religious interventions if we feel that they are in contraindication to their health and well-being. In a deep state of reference for what is holy (and whole) in my child, I exercise my full liberty to protect both my son and daughter from interventions that are not congruent to their health or well-being. In fact, if you look at the top 10 Values of Judaism, you will realize that circumcision violates 90% of them:
Why Circumcision violates this value
V’ahavta l’rayaha kamokha
Love of others
If you love your baby, you don’t torture and mutilate his genitals.
It is not just or responsible to strap a baby down and mutilate his sex organs.
It is not kind or compassionate to strap a baby down and mutilate his sex organs.
Love of learning
It’s time we learn to stop mutilating babies. It’s a no-brainer.
It is not welcoming to strap a newborn baby down and mutilate his sex organs.
Peace/harmony in home/family
It does not ensure/ help peace and harmony when you strap a baby down and torture him. He will never trust you again and he will remember.
Perfecting the world
We’d be more perfect if we stopped torturing and mutilating little boy’s sex organs. God made us perfect. It is blasphemy to think we know better.
Sanctity of life
Babies have died during circumcision, therefore it violates the sanctity of life.
Sanctity of language
It is not modest to strap a baby down naked in front of people.
Even the famed medieval rabbi, Moses Maimonides, stated that ritual circumcision was probably designed to dull the desire in a man for masturbation and sexual intercourse. He states,
Part III, Chapter 49, Page 609:
“Similarly with regard to circumcision, one of the reasons for it is, in my opinion, the wish to bring about a decrease in sexual intercourse and a weakening of the organ in question, so that this activity be diminished and the organ be in as quiet a state as possible. It has been thought that circumcision perfects what is defective congenitally. This gave the possibility to everyone to raise an objection and to say: How can natural things be defective so that they need to be perfected from outside, all the more because we know how useful the foreskin is for that member? In fact this commandment has not been prescribed with a view to perfecting what is defective congenitally, but to perfecting what is defective morally. The bodily pain caused to that member is the real purpose of circumcision. None of the activities necessary for the preservation of the individual is harmed thereby, nor is procreation rendered impossible, but violent concupiscence and lust that goes beyond what is needed are diminished. The fact that circumcision weakens the faculty of sexual excitement and sometimes perhaps diminishes the pleasure is indubitable. For if at birth this member has been made to bleed and has had its covering taken away from it, it must indubitably be weakened. The Sages, may their memory be blessed, have explicitly stated: It is hard for a woman with whom an uncircumcised man has had sexual intercourse to separate from him. In my opinion this is the strongest of the reasons for circumcision.”
“This class of commandments also includes the prohibition against mutilating the sexual organs of all the males of animals, which is based on the principle of righteous statutes and judgments, I mean the principle of keeping the mean in all matters; sexual intercourse should neither be excessively indulged, as we have mentioned, nor wholly abolished. Did He not command and say: Be fruitful and multiply? Accordingly this organ is weakened by means of circumcision, but not extirpated through excision. What is natural is left according to nature, but measures are taken against excess. He that is wounded in the stones or hath his privy member cut off is forbidden to marry a woman of Israel, for such cohabitation would be perverted and aimless. Such a marriage would likewise be a stumbling block for the woman and for him who seeks her out. This is very clear. Source: THE GUIDE TO THE PERPLEXED, Maimonides, Moses, translated by Shlomo Pines. (University of Chicago, 1963) The whole basis for the bris is actually halachically forbidden; which means that it is clearly against the fundamentals of Jewish Law. It no longer should inform our behaviours towards our healthy, intact, sons whether we identify as Jewish or not. It is our job to preserve the sanctity of each human life, especially for those who trust us not to betray that trust. As a mother who feels inordinate guilt for allowing the bris to take place on my own son, in my own home, I repent deeply for this travesty upon my beautiful son. Even though, I fought against the rabbi and my in-laws, knowing instinctively, that strapping my son down to a board to have his genitals cut went against what I felt was right, I was weak in the face of their pressure. I asked that given his prematurity that the procedure be delayed for 6 weeks after birth and that he be brought to me immediately after to sooth and nurse him. If I’d only had the knowledge that Halaka (Jewish Law) dictates that since there is a danger to the babe’s life, medically hazardous procedures are strictly forbidden taking precedence over all else. My son had been born 2 months premature, I would have had plenty of justification in light of the information researched for this article. “It is a violation of Torah commandments to physically assault or harm another person (Exodus 21:18-27). Yet that is exactly what circumcision is! Thus, it is against the most fundamental concept of Jewish law.” Can you imagine that some Jews barbarously object to pain medication by the physician; but can you imagine 4 needles with anaesthetic injected into your genitals isn’t painless? Also, coating the babe’s lips in wine is no justification for this inhuman act. I feel guilty and angry at myself for allowing the coercion to take place over 21 years ago. I was a shut down, needy, woman who was silently mistaken for wanting to be a dutiful tribal member. My daughter had a very civilized baby naming ceremony. We had chocolate cake, we wrote poems in her honour. It was a ceremony orchestrated by women for the promise of a baby who’d one day become a woman. My son deserved the same ease, and promise for grace and full orgastic potency; not a shock that caused him to writhe in mistrust and terror against straps that restricted his freedom of movement. When we clear the event on many timelines, of the males we serve, their penis will break out with an angry rash. No wonder! Some people will say that if you’re against circumcision, you’re anti-semitic. Far from it. In fact, this is a ridiculous notion. I studied for almost 10 years to become a Jew, as a result, my children are Jewish, I’m married to a Jew and I identify with the persecution of any people who’ve suffered at the hands of any false authority. I’ve been treated with nothing but grace and respect by members of my chosen Jewish tribe, however, in pursuit of higher education where I was taught to question everything, I question this. Part of my own enlightenment and conscious maturity means that I reject many of the barbarous practices illustrated in the Torah. For example if 90% of African Americans chose to smoke and I was against smoking, it doesn’t mean that I’m against black people. It means that I’m against the behaviour, not the race. I am not remotely racist as a result. As one fellow enlightened Jew wrote, “Jews are smart. We are 1/3 of 1% of the population, yet we hold 33% of the Nobel prizes. This means that we are smart enough to understand that sexually mutilating our boys’ genitals is NOT acceptable.” It is time to forgive ourselves and move on. My hope is that any future grandsons of mine remain intact, breaking the cycle of pain and sexual compromise. I will do my best to educate my daughter and my son.”
If you’re reading this, you have our upmost sympathy. I know from treating folks with IBS, Crohn’s, and Colitis over the last 12 years that when you first come to us that you may be deeply despairing and given up much hope. Yes, we know about the drugs and the limited prognosis on the allopathic side of the fence. We also knot the limitations of most alternative therapies too. Believe me, we’ve lived this too with our own issues. We get it.
Now, I know you want to know what we’re going to do about it. Well, the answer is multiple and dynamic. The first thing that we want to know is what is your timeline peppered with in the way of events? What are the nature of your physical and emotional traumas? Also, what is your present state of mind?
Did you know that fear of losing control can be a big emotional aspect of this disease matrix? Of course you do. Did you know that unexpressed rage, frustration and anger is also a very large component too? Yes, you secretly have known that too. Now, you want to know what we’re going to help you do about it, don’t you? Give me a second, we’re getting there.
Ok, now that we’ve got some of the “state of mind” sussed out, we’re going to recommend basic things like slowly integrating high doses of a broad spectrum probiotics and fermented foods to replenish your microbiome as well as EFA’s (Essential Fatty Acids) to help restore the gut and start working on assimilation. Lots of folks with Crohn’s have missed a gut full of healthy bacteria even since birth when they should have grabbed a big gulp of probiotics from their Mom when passing down through the birth canal. This deficit is a big part of the Crohn’s symptoms picture. The other aspects is to ensure that you’re getting enough pure spring water, sleep and pristine nutrition, based on your blood type typology, will also be key.
Then, we’re going to provide you a dynamic set of homeopathic remedies specifically for emotional support and drainage and organ support. One of the key rx, Arsenicum, for IBS, Crohn’s and Colitis will have a description like this excerpt from Dr. Henry Clarke’s Materia Medica. These are some of the symptoms that we will apply the law of cure for:
12. Abdomen.?Compression in the region of the liver.?Swelling of the spleen.?Excessive pains in the abdomen, principally on the left side, and often with great anguish in the abdomen.?Inflation of the abdomen.?Ascites.?Swelling of the abdomen as in ascites.?Hard bloated abdomen.?Violent cutting pains, cramp-like pains, digging, pulling, tearing, and gnawing in the abdomen.?Attacks of colic occur chiefly after having drunk or eaten, or in the night, and are often accompanied by vomiting or diarrhœa, with cold, internal heat, or cold sweat.?Burning pains with anguish.?Sensation of cold, or insupportable burning in the abdomen.?Pain, as from a wound in the abdomen, chiefly on coughing and laughing.?Swelling and induration of the mesenteric glands.?Much flatulency, with rumbling in the abdomen.?Flatulency of a putrid smell.?Painful swelling of the inguinal glands.?Ulcer above the navel.
13. Stool and Anus.?Tenesmus, with burning in the anus.?Involuntary and unperceived evacuations.?Violent diarrhœa, with frequent evacuations, nausea, vomiting, thirst, great weakness, colic, and tenesmus.?Nocturnal diarrhœa, and renewal of the diarrhœa, after having drunk or eaten.?Burning stools, with violent pains in the bowels, with tenesmus, thirst, worse after eating.?Burning and corrosive evacuations; fæces with mucus, or bilious, sanguineous, serous, painless, involuntary, &c., of greenish, yellowish, whitish colour, or brownish and blackish; fetid and putrid evacuations; evacuations of undigested substances.?Emission of mucus by the anus, with tenesmus.?Prolapsus of the rectum: with much pain.?Itching, pain as from excoriation, and burning in the rectum and in the anus, as well as in the hæmorrhoidal tumours, chiefly at night.?Shootings in the hæmorrhoidal tumours.
The state accompanying state of Mind in Arsenicum, will have a picture like this:
1. Mind.?Melancholy, sometimes of a religious character, sadness, care, chagrin, cries and complaints.?Anguish, driving one out of bed at night, and from one place to another in the daytime.?Restlessness.?Great fear of being left alone.?Anger, with anxiety, restlessness and sensation of coldness.?Anxiety, restlessness, and excessive anguish which allows no rest, principally in the evening in bed, or in the morning on waking, and often with trembling, cold sweat, oppression of the chest, difficulty of breathing, and fainting fits.?Anxiety of conscience, as if a crime had been committed.?Inconsolable anguish, with complaints and lamentation.?Hypochondriacal humour, with restlessness and anxiety.?Fear of solitude, of spectres, and of robbers, with desire to hide oneself.?Indecision and changeable humour, which demands this at one time, that at another, and rejects everything after having obtained it.?Despair; he finds no rest, esp. at night, with anguish.?Despondency, despair, weariness of life, inclination to suicide, or excessive fear of death, which is sometimes believed to be very near.?Too great sensibility and scrupulousness of conscience, with gloomy ideas, as if one had offended all the world.?Ill-humour, impatience, vexation, inclination to be angry, repugnance to conversation, inclination to criticise, and great susceptibility.?Caustic and jesting spirit.?Extreme sensibility of all the organs; all noise, conversation, and clear lights are insupportable.?Great apathy and indifference.?Great weakness of memory.?Stupidity and dulness.?Delirium.?Delirium, with great flow of ideas.?Loss of consciousness, and of sensation; dotage; maniacal actions and frenzy.?Madness; loss of mind (from the abuse of alcoholic drinks).
Now you can start to piece together what happens when we apply the law of nature, like cures like to resolve the underlying cause. This is only one of many remedies that will typically be used in your case en route to the Genetic Miasms, the root cause for chronic disease, including yours. We will also work on the psyche and the spiritual aspects of why you incurred the disease in the first place, so that you never re-infect yourself with that old state of mind and reinfect yourself.
Perhaps one day soon, you’ll be writing us a testimonial like this one:
“I’ve recently been prompted to return to the Crohn’s/colitic/IBS community by a friend since I’m one of those people that managed to break the vicious cycle of these conditions.
In 1999, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s. My case was severe but not atypical: much inflammation and cramping, fistula, abscess. Instead of acute food sensitivities, my reactions were usually expressed by a bowel obstruction every few weeks. 5 months later I had lost 40 lbs (from 110 lb on a 5’5″ frame). I was non-responsive to all of the meds and diets, the bowel resection confirmed necrosis of the tissues.
I had started seeing a sequential homeopath (Heilkunst practitioner) shortly after the surgery and relapsed 4 months later. I gave up on the meds at that point and chose a 100% holistic treatment. I figured that I had nothing to lose if steroids and surgery were going to get me only 4 months of peace!
7 years later I can say that it took about a year to feel like my life was normal again and another 2 years before I was symptom-free. It was a process, not a panacea. Potent and complete probiotics are key, Essential Fatty Acids and nutritional supplementation to maintain a minimum level of nutrition while assimilation is poor. Good day-to-day nutrition, as possible. Environmental doctors provide IV supplementation, it was certainly a life saver for me.
Believe it or not, I’m hugely grateful for the experience now. I learned so much about myself and the how and why of what made me sick. Now working as a sequential homeopath myself, I’m not advocating abandoning whatever treatment you are following, just trying to say that there is hope and lots of help out there.”
My initial connection with Ally was truly fate. I had been trying classical homeopathy and biomed to try and help Micah recover from his autism diagnosis at age 2. Through various Facebook groups I had come across this form of homeopathy called Heilkunst. I then proceeded to read everything I could like a normal mom of a recently diagnosed child of autism. I had come across Ally’s book, “The Path to Cure” and read through it in a day. I remember after reading the book feeling a sense of calm, peace, and hope for Micah’s future. I then began to join homeopathy groups where people would talk about their progress with Heilkunst, and one specific mom mentioned Ally. This had been days after I had finished the book, and I knew the name sounded familiar. The mom spoke to me about how amazing Ally was to work with and how her daughter has now recovered from autism. I knew Ally would be our answer to our prayers for Micah.
Fast forward 7 months …
Today Micah is smiling, he is engaging much more, and he is getting healthier each month. When I look at Micah, now, I now see my little boy and a twinkle in his eye. His progress is nothing short of a miracle. He would never play with toys or engage with others, now he is doing both. I, too, am being treated by Ally and am seeing an amazing transformation which helps to accelerate Micah’s progress.
We couldn’t be more thankful for Ally and for Heilkunst medicine. We are truly blessed to have come into contact with her and Jeff.

You’ll notice at Arcanum that we do things a little differently in that we prescribe homeopathic remedies for each one of your diseases. Whereas other approaches use more secondary texts of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s, interpreting him as saying just one remedy per person. It’s been like a game of broken telephone where the patient feels the shortfall in the true eradication of the root cause (tonic) along with their symptoms; the pathic expression of their disease. I actually wrote a book just about this concept alone and how I was extremely frustrated at the way that homeopathic medicine seemingly did not work in the face of my son’s advanced sufferings; that is until we found the more advanced Heilkunst. (For more, see my book, The Path To Cure; The Whole Art of Healing here: www.thepathtocure.com).
As you may see from the article above, homeopathic medical innovators like Dr. James Compton Burnett were applying the more dynamic principles we use and getting more stellar results with their patients as a result. Incidentally, Burnett was Marjorie Blackie’s great uncle. Blackie was appointed Queen Elizabeth II’s Royal Physician in 1968. At Arcanum, we’ve also had the pleasure of working with cousins of Lady Diana’s branch of the royal family. It is an honour to exact this dynamic, principled system of medicine so steeped in history. If you too pursue the nuggets of truth, you find a whole goldmine, historically to be traced right back to the dawn of time.
Our mentor, Steven Decker, has been at the forefront of illuminating Hahnemann’s blueprint for cure. He’s embodied a generative curiosity going back into Hahnemann’s original works, re-translating the 6th edition of the Organon to find that Hahnemann stated that you must cure “one disease” systematically at a time. The patient will then naturally re-tune their organism to a more sustentive state of health in the absence of the old engendered diseases. If you have 10 or more concordant diseases, a true Heilkünstler is ordained to go after each and every one of them without making the patient wait unnecessarily.
“Hahnemann would then select his remedy on the basis of any important or prominent symptoms… he had to be content to move through the case, eliminating symptoms serially…as he removed each symptom, so he tuned each note until eventually the whole instrument might be restored to harmony….there is extreme example of this in Mr Robert Lyster’s case, where Hahnemann worked his way serially through all five remedies…until some improvement was eventually achieved with the last one.’ [Handley, 1997, pp.65-6]”
My hope is that you can see by this quote, and perhaps the article above, that we’re not curing your diseases in random isolation. The footing we Heilkünstlers stand on is profoundly embossed into the code of humanity’s history; it isn’t that I grew up always wanting to cure suffering folks of their multiple chronic diseases.
In fact, I never went to medical school at the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst for the purpose of opening my own practice. I simply wanted to know why my son had been cured of his autism spectrum symptoms so systematically and how it was that I had been relieved of a lifelong bout of depression and a laundry list of chronic ailments through “timeline” therapy and the eradication of my Miasms (the genetic roots of chronic disease as per Hahnemann).
I, too, was simply curious. However, when I realized in the clinical portion of my study that all 10 patients that we followed over 6 months were achieving the same physical, mental, and emotional freedom, I felt a calling so primal that I could not deny a desire to serve humanity in this way. The truth is that if the decision were left up to me, I would simply research and write for my livelihood; however, a calling is a calling, a moment of revelation and transcendence where you realize that your life is not wholly your own, but the mind, heart, and hands of a higher power. When I first read Hahnemann’s Aphorism 1, I was completely rattled to my bones:
The Highest Ideal of Cure: The physician’s highest and only calling is to make the sick healthy, to cure, as it is called.
1 Theoretical Medicine. The physician’s calling is not to concoct so-called systems from empty conceits and hypotheses concerning the inner wesen† of the life process and the origins of disease in the invisible interior of the organism (on which so many physicians mongering for fame have hitherto wasted their time and energy). The physician’s calling is not to make countless attempts at explanation regarding disease appearances and their proximate cause (which must ever remain concealed) holding forth in unintelligible words or abstract and pompous expressions in order to appear very learned and astonish the ignorant, while a sick world sighs in vain for help. Of such learned fanaticism (to which the name theoretical medicinal art is given, and for which special professorships are instituted) we have had quite enough. It is high time for all those who call themselves physicians, once and for all, to stop deceiving suffering humanity with idle talk, and to begin now to act, that is to really help and to cure.
† There is no word in English that adequately translates Wesen (pronounced va´zen [Quark: put a straight line over the a and replace e with an upside down e]). A wesen is the essence of something, its quintessence. It is also an entity with a real presence, even though that presence is immaterial. See wesen in the Glossary.
It is fair to say that Hahnemann’s precise words, “… a sick world sighs in vain for help,” and how we have to stop lolling gagging about and, “to begin now to act, that is to really help and to cure,” that I felt Hahnemann’s voice tugging at my own ears. As I continued through his primary texts, often losing myself for hours in his words steeped in strong, righteous feeling, founded on the undeniable basis of such profound observational truths that, as a modern woman, I was rewarded with the words of the sweetest and most romantic of scientists. Perhaps the following two aphorisms describing ascending potencies for curing disease, translated by Decker, will move you the same way:
§ 278 Here the question arises, what is this most suitable degree of minuteness for sure and gentle remedial effect; how small, in other words, must be the dose of each individual medicine, homoeopathically selected for a case of disease, to effect the best cure? To solve this problem, and to determine for every particular medicine, what dose of it will suffice for homoeopathic therapeutic purposes and yet be so minute that the gentlest and most rapid cure may be thereby obtained – to solve this problem is, as may easily be conceived, not the work off theoretical speculation; not by fine-spun reasoning, not by specious sophistry can we expect to obtain the solution of this problem. It is just as impossible as to tabulate in advance all imaginable cases. Pure experiment, careful observation of the sensitiveness of each patient, and accurate experience can alone determine this; and it were absurd to adduce the large doses of unsuitable (allopathic) medicines of the old system, which do not touch the diseased side of the organism homoeopathically, but only attack the parts unaffected by the disease, in opposition to what pure experience pronounces respecting the smallness of the doses required for homoeopathic cures.
§ 280 The dose of the medicine that continues serviceable without producing new troublesome symptoms is to be continued while gradually ascending, so long as the patient with general improvement, begins to feel in a mild degree the return of one or several old original complaints. This indicates an approaching cure through a gradual ascending of the moderate doses modified each time by succussion (§ 247). It indicates that the vital principal no longer needs to be affected by the similar medicinal disease in order to lose the sensation of the natural disease (§ 148). It indicates that the life principle now free from the natural disease begins to suffer only something of the medicinal disease hitherto known as homoeopathic aggravation.
Did the earth move for you too? Can you imagine now what it feels like after a whole week of patients to still have their echoing words ringing in my ears about not only their symptoms are diminishing, but they’ve suddenly been able to lift the laundry basket up the stairs again, or they’ve just conceived after years of chemical IVF therapy, or their painful facial neuropathy is gone, or that their child has spoken for the first time and their autism symptoms are diminishing. It is a blessed thing to be anchored and rooted in principles, exacting a science, consistently addressing the root cause of disease and making “the sick healthy, to cure as it is called.” I feel so very blessed to be able to take those reins of history and witness the exact same meticulous results for my patients in the 21st century. Perhaps you too will feel inspired to do the same.
“October of 2013 is when my life changed. I had finally given in to seeing Allyson at Arcanum Wholistic Clinic after a fellow heilkunst mama had repeatedly urged me to at least try her. This mother gently urged me for months prior to, but I just didn’t ‘get’ how this treatment would work. Our journey for having a family was met with failed attempt after failed attempt every month. We had even resorted to fertility treatments (the ones we could afford…kind of) and still were failing to have a family. We were plagued with Unexplained Infertility.
Enter in Allyson.
Within twenty minutes of speaking with Allyson via skype, I knew this was the last place I would have to turn, to have a baby. Allyson patiently went through all aspects of Heilkunst Homeopathy treatment, and detailed how my specific treatment would span out, and what modifications to start. Before our initial session, I was overwhelmed with such a change in treatment, from always seeing allopathic physicians, to seeing a homeopath. I was clueless. She helped me ‘get it.’ And it makes sense. I needed to change our diet and get our bodies in an alkaline state. Done. I adhered to this as though it was my religion.
For once, over the four years of “not preventing” and then actively “trying” to have a child, I had hope it would happen. Not the false sense of hope like I had with the hormone cocktails injected into my back side had given me, not like all the tests with painful utensils I was prodded with like a cow gave me, not all the “advice” I received but never asked for, but REAL hope. I saw Allyson once more before getting pregnant in December of 2013. That is all it took. Two whole appointments. Not only had she restored the hope and love I had lost in myself as a woman and a wife, but she made me a mother. Two appointments. My life was changed. I am a mother.
We still see Allyson monthly for follow-ups for our timelines and miasms, which also includes the frantic emails and phone calls at all hours about my fears of failing as a mother, not being good enough for my daughter, the reason for her temperature/runny nose/trouble with breastfeeding/etc., or just the question of “am I doing this right?” There is no judgment, she is never too busy for me, and she “gets me.” She does. She understands and is there, full of support, love…so much love, and kindness.
Allyson and the principles of Heilkunst Homeopathy changed my life. She healed the fragment of the broken person I was inside, with the deepest sadness of infertility, I thought I was hiding, and she made me a mother. And she is helping me to be a better mother.
I am forever indebted to Allyson, as she made me a mother.”

Do you know someone struggling to have children?
A medical researcher in Europe recently investigated whether homeopathy could be used to safely treat human infertility. An observational study involving 73 women in Hungary was undertaken to learn more.
The findings: “Homeopathic treatment showed significant results. Five times twins were born, and 61 times one child was conceived and born. In 31 cases, insemination and flask treatment was also carried out with simultaneous homeopathic treatment giving rise to successful conception, embedding, pregnancy.
Conclusion: The treatment of infertility with homeopathy shows significant, cost-effective results.
