Making Homeopathic Remedies for Addiction

Hi. A hypothesis.

If one makes a homeopathic remedy out of the substance of which the patient is addicted to in order to cure their addiction sourcing a used sample for the remedy will enhance the addiction dispelling properties of the remedy.

Hypothetical example.

One making a remedy out of a roach to help somebody with long standing marijuana use to overcome the habit vs. one making a remedy of fresh marijuana.

In energetic terms it makes logical sense. Your thoughts?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
This idea centres around one misconception about drug addiction - that the substance is somehow responsible for the addiction. Even though this would simplifly things wonderfully, it is simply not true. It is a shame because addiction is a very sad situation to deal with.

Drug addiction is a mental, emotional and spiritual problem. The state is there long before the substance is ingested, the addict exists before the addiction.

Therefore the substance itself is not likely to be the remedy for the addiction. I have treated a large number of addicts over the years - not a single one of them needed the drug remedy. They all needed medicines made from other substances, usually with no relation to the substance of choice for their addiction.

In fact, ALL of the patients that I have treated who did need, and were cured, by drug remedies, were so allergic to the raw substance they could not take it at all. Only the potentized version was acceptable to their vital energy.

Remember that a medicine ONLY cures because of its similarity to the patient. If the patient is in the state of the substance, then the substance will cause aggravation. The raw substance always creates very serious aggravations in those patients who need the potentized version. Such patients simply cannot become addicted to that substance.

With homeopathy, patients are often cured of addictions with remedies that are completely different than the substances that were the problem.

What would you suggest to cure the addict as opposed to the addiction?

A brief case history: the person in question has the following addictions: food, tobacco, and marijuana. They're living situation is such that they are not able to separate themselves from being exposed to tobacco or addictive foods.

Within the past few months the person happened to become addicted to synthetic marijuana. This particular addiction caused a good deal of trouble in the person's life, though they were unable to quit due to the fact that they were exposed to it everyday. A remedy was made from a sample procured by the person in question and worked quite effectively. They have reported that the scent of the stuff is now completely revolting to them(as they are still exposed to it everyday).

However, the addiction to synthetic marijuana has now transferred to real marijuana. Both of these substances trigger the person's addictions to food and tobacco.

It sounds like you're telling me that instead of pegging the addictions off one by one, this person could possibly be treated to remove the addictive tendencies altogether. Is this so? What kind of remedy will achieve such a thing?

The addiction in this case is not the main element. If there were 10 people in this situation, each might need a completely different medicine.

For this kind of a patient, you would need much information about the patient in general.

Yes the homoeopathic approach would be to treat the tendency to addiction rather than looking at the substances they attach to. To do this, as Jewish is saying, we need to understand alot more about them than just the addiction, which will only represent the deeper problem they have.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.

Feeling 'exposed'. Being around a substance on a regular basis. Anxiety. Low motivation. Boredom. People yelling. Looking people in the eyes. Loud noises in the morning.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?

Yes. More likely to suffer in abusive environments or on my own. Less likely to suffer when physically active, mentally engaged, or socially stimulated.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?

Warm, dry, and windy if reasonably healthy.
Crisp and dry if producing excessive heat.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

Just about all of the above. Extremely unstable mental makeup. Often overly humble, then arrogant. Can be blase, can be jubilant, can be anal retentive. Often try to keep vulnerabilities hidden. Often spacey. Muteable demeanor. Philosophical/abstract/alienated. A mind like an anthropologist in a foreign land.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?

Calm.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?

Depends on who is doing the consoling and what they have to offer(both logically and energetically). Mistrustful of most people, but usually considers words/advice that carry logic.

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?

Yes.

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc?

Causeless weeping and talking to oneself. Slouching. Used to habitually shrug.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?

Familiy: Separation brings us closer. They're not prime examples of the gene pool. It's difficult not to be embarrassed if we're out together in public.

Friends: Don't have many.

Significant Other: Put him on a pedastal at times. Value his advice, his help, etc. but suspicious of him. He's very unusual, which is my type of normal. Often suprises me by not perpetuating my social expectations.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?

People, failure, self-assertion, opening up, Caucasion Buddhist Monks, deceptiveness, lack of progress, living with parents until the age of 50, taking initiative, getting punished, speaking my mind, negative entities.

Dream as in REM? Or as in daydream?

The answer for both is yes.

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?

Aversions: Potatoes, Quiche, Sugar, Carrots, Meat(usually do not consider this substance as edible, with the exception of certain guidelines), Dairy, Saffron, White rice(another non-food, never liked it), refined foods.

Cravings: sugar, dairy(in the form of sweets), coffee, eel, rattlesnake, wild game(a separate catagory from what the average american culturally refers to as meat), seafood, mango, kombucha, protein powder, kefir, nut-butter

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?

Usually minimal, but lately excessive.

14. How is your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?

The physical hunger is subject to an array of variation. If kept busy it is minimal. If not busy it is light to normal, but the mental/emotional aspect of hunger is excessive. If doing hard labor physical hunger will range from minimal to excessive. Often hungry at night.

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?

Fast food, processed foods, refined foods, sweets. Cheese, milk. Meat(unless wild game or seafood). Potatoes.

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs? Don't sweat very much. Trunk produces the most sweat, then head, limbs rarely sweat(considering armpits as a part of the trunk). Can't stand sweaty hands. Feet sweat often.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?

Depends on what I eat. Usually big, solid, and heavy. Sinks to the bottom of the bowl. 1-3 movements a day. Sometimes a day is skipped, especially if away from home.

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping? Often sleep on my right side facing west. Head is north and feet are south. Move around at night, switching from side to side. Occassionally sleep on back, but never on stomache.

Insomniac tendencies(especially when disturbed by an obsessive thought or emotion) which are extremely adaptable to tinctures of valerian, mistletoe(although this is the tincture I've had the most success with), hops, kava, passionflower, etc. Melatonin has it's limits too. Auricular acupuncture generally puts me out, but has failed in some cases.

20. Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? How are you different from others?

Sometimes I get light-headed and see little black/white specks of light moving in and out of the space around me.

I feel anger in my belly. Even when I'm not angry. When I become aware of my body I become plauged by irritating sensations, so I disassociate.

Right leg went numb for a couple of weeks.

Androgynous physical appearance and emotional/mental habits.

Attracted to dead things. Enjoys the scent of stinkhorn mushrooms.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?

This list is long. I was prescribed a cocktail of antideppressants, antipsychotic, etc. as a teenager for about 2 years.

I've used many herbs and vitamins for a variety of issues(MSM, chromium, probiotics, echinacea seed, concentrated albizza, horsetail, chickweed, siberian ginseng, oregon graperoot, peoney, homeopathic K2, the list goes on.) Regularly I take a mixture of slippery elm, wheat grass powder, alfalfa powder, bentonite clay, and psyllium husk. Also take chlorophyll, and a b-complex regularly.

Raspberry/chasteberry tea. Homeopathic arnica. Teasel Extract. B12. Tulsi extract. Are semi-regulars. Just began GABA.

Have taken homeopathic tobacco.

22. What major diseases are running in your family?

Emphesemia, high blood pressure/chloresteral, heart attack, tachycardia, diabetes, gastric ulcers, obesity, addiction, alcoholism.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance.

I often get mistaken for the opposite sex. I've got big brown eyes that betray me. They also make people feel insecure. Mop head of curly auburn hair. Mosly brown, but with natural copper and red colored highlights, and sun-bleached tips. I do not wear make up or spend an inordinate time on my appearance. To me showing and wearing clean clothes is good enough. Don't shave. Brushing my hair is an unusual event. My choice of clothing is often related to function: carhartts and button ups to work, women's jeans and a shirt free from the appearance of a logo or picture for the rest of the time. Like to wear men's blazers from time to time. Used to dress really loud and outlandish, but have toned that down, due to the fact that I don't want to draw unwarrented attention to myself. Will switch between men and women's clothing. Demeanor is usually submissive or jubilent, usually insecure, but sometimes erect and confident.
Weight fluctuates. Give people the impression that I am older than I really am. Within average weight range for hieght but have always had a pot belly. Long boney fingers attached to semi-calloused hands. Wide hips. Bad posture. Wide cheekbones(not necessarily defined)/face. Flatter face, justting chin. Tibetan/buddha looking nose I'm a white american, but often mistaken as a foreigner. Many asians have asked if I'm tibetan. Still others have thought I was from germany, ireland, jewish, albanian, chaldean, etc. Many people tell me I have an accent.

25. What major diseases have you had in your life and when. Please write them in a chronological manner.

Heart Murmur - Born with it
Enlarged Tonsils and Adenoids - Again, born with this one

Sorry about that, the touchpad hit send and I couldn't figure out how to edit the post.

Suicidal tendencies every few years.
Can you describe what the thoughts are? And when they come about?

Most recent bout: 'I've been working on improving myself for so long and so hard, but I can't seem to make any headway. I'm a prisoner of my own consciousness. It's uncomfortable in here and I can't get away. I have no place in society. I've lost my talents. I don't want to be trapped like this for an indefinite amount of years. There's been very little progress, very little advancement. Everytime I try to solve a problem, three more come back. I'm just too screwed up. Beyond repair. There is something fundamentally wrong with me. I can't fix it. Being alive is torture.'

Past bouts, 'There's nothing worth living for. I'm curious about death. I want to go home, where my home was before I was born. I hate my immediate environment. I hate my abusive household. I hate the education system. I hate all that damned concrete. I hate what humans are doing to the world. I hate that I can't enjoy anything. I'm so out of place here.'

or let's say somebody made me angry, I would use that as an excuse to take a bunch of pills. Do what I say or I'll kill myself.

6. Which time of the day you are worst? Evening.
What hours of evening? Any specific times?

After dark. between 6pm and 1am.

Can you describe what you look like? Body type, fat, skinny, tall, muscular?

5'10'' (tall) Thin limbs with thicker core. Limbs more muscularly developed than core. weight fluctuates between 130 and 160lbs. Pelvis incorrectly aligned.

Also, please describe your medical history as much as possible.

Long history of breathing related problems as a child, nothing too major, just mouth breathing, stuffy nose, enlarged tonsils and adenoids.

Did catch pneumonia at 8 years old. Also had a broken arm at the time. Prone to breaking bones.

Overdoese on tylenol at 13, overdose on geodon at 15, overdose of heroin at 22.
