Sine Wave Materia Medica

This is a chapter of the book “Autism Reversal Toolbox”, By Jerry Kantor.

Available at www.merlijnboekhandel.nl and in our website store.

The full range of existing materia medica can and will come into play during the treatment of ASD or related autoimmune conditions. The following compilation of suggested remedies is divided among remedies I have found possessing unusual and specific relevance to ASD and other remedies whose situational relevance is generally. The practitioner is urged to make a full an investigation of any remedy under consideration. A study of the Unda system with its 76 remedies is recommended, as only basic suggestions are offered here.

Parents are kindly reminded not to try to treat their children based on the remedy descriptions here or in other books about homeopathy for autism. A professional is needed not only to see the remedy state clearly, but more importantly to manage the roller coaster ride of ups and downs that can ensue from a remedy.


For child or both mother and child when a pregnancy ailment and ASD is are associated.

When the mother has suffered an injurious blow to the womb

Bellis Perennis

The mother may harbor a suspicion that nothing has ever been the same since.

After-effects of Common Infection

Streptococcinum (including PANDA) High strung mother, perhaps prone to weeping; where there has been a history of Strep infection. Slow growth in the child, also with tendency to relapse.


The staphylococcus bacterium thrives in circumstances of debility from overwork, anxiety, poor nutrition, constitutional weakness. Affinity for the endocardium.

All Unda remedies below are only available in the United States, not in Europe (editor).

Unda #1

Basic drainage, general anti-toxic that reboots hepatic function. Strong effect on the liver, kidneys and gall bladder (Achillea millefolium, Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, Lyc, Valeriana, Angelica archangelica, Equisetum arvense, Arg met).

Unda #243

Like #1 but acts as a functional remedy with specific indication for the hepatic cells. Indispensable (Combretum raimbaultii, Peumus boldus, Cholesterolinum, Lycopodium, Podophylum).

Unda #2

Basic drainage and strengthening of kidney function (both in the allopathic and TCM sense), in relation to toxic accumulation. (Berberis, Thlaspi, Juniperus, Argentum met, Asparagus, Genista tinctoria, Petroselinum sativum).

Anergic Diathesis, Copper-Gold-Silver (CU-AU-AG).

Oligotherapy remedy (6X or 3C solutions not potentized). Where there is a history of recurrent and/or debilitating infections.



Septic states or where has been a history of sepsis.

Caesarian section and other traumas of delivery

Liliflorae (remedy family described in Sankaran’s An Insight into Plants)

The following remedies exhibiting jauntiness and loquacity may reflect

the issue of “Forced out vs. Held in” with regard to forcibly early or restrained birth. They are worth considering in the related ASD case:

Crocus sativa

Veratrum album

Veratrum viride

Paris quadrifolia

Spurge/Rubber/Oils (Euphorbiaceae described by Sankaran, and Petroleum as discussed by Mangiolavari)

As words commonly associated with these remedies include “constricted,” “hidebound,” “drawn backwards” their associated theme of “Compressed vs. Released” should be considered where delivery has been compromised. May manifest as the clinginess vs. bolting polarity:

Croton Tiglium

Hura Brasiliensis




Glandular Imbalance

According to Sensation Method findings, the thematic essence of endocrine glands has to do with high-level fulfillment of one’s duty, relevant when the theme emerges in the intake with regard to the child’s parents or familial Julian’s formula for prescribing endocrine sarcodes for glandular problems at specific potencies:

3C or 5C to encourage functioning of a gland

7C to modulate / regulate a gland function

9C to suppress/inhibit gland functioning.

Unda remedies

Worth studying are the clinical approaches to addressing glandular imbalance within the Unda system. The two etiologies with the greatest relevance to ASD are

The Tubercular and degenerative etiology (paralleling developmental endocrinology and in accordance with the above, sensation method’s insight, culminating in high level functioning) which suggests Unda numbers 14, 16, 21, 48 and 1000

Dysfunction within the diencephalon-cortico-gonadic axis suggesting Unda numbers 1, 10 and 245..

Scrophularia nodosa

Enlarged glands. Ailments of the breast. Eczema. Often after grief.


Calc Fluor

Financial stresses for the parents or within the familial legacy. The conjunction of Calc’s concern with bone stability and fluoride’s sudden instability expresses itself in glandular dysfunction promptiung induration (excessive bone hardness and growth) but also brittleness.



Where the mother has had a longstanding leucorrhea and the child is slow growing and poorly developed.

Magnesium Sulphurica

Languor and staggering gait in the child. Leuccorhea or eclampsia in the mother. Consider especially when there is an inequality of existing between wife and husband. I have seen this expressed when one spouse shoulders disproportionate breadwinning responsibility and, where the wife is physically more imposing than the husband.

Depression During Pregnancy

Unda #9

Basic drainage, all ailments of the respiratory tract. Assists the lungs both in the allopathic and TCM sense wherefore addresses grief from a drainage standpoint. On a moment to moment basis the lungs provide the interplay between the external and internal terrains. Inability to resolve centeredness vs disorientation in the dimension of smell. (Adianatum capillus veneris, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Inula helenium, Tussilago farfara, Arg met, Drosera, Grindelia, Potentilla tormentilla, Cuprum).



Post-partum depression, feeling of black cloud hovering. Awareness that motherhood poses severe constraint on her independence.


History of resentment and disappointment. Lack of clarity as to her psycho-sexual position in life. Delusion that hope is toxic. Generally stagnated condition (Liver Constraint picture in TCM).


Weary, faint-hearted pursuant to a setback. General heaviness and prostration.

Nitric Acidum

Fault-finding, exacting, glass is half-full. Cannot forget or easily forgives wrongs.

Natrum Muriaticum

Self-contained, averse to consolation. Desires intimacy but keeps it at arm’s length. Delusion it is dangerous to express grief. Overly responsible.


Due to their relevance to the neonate and infant, the following remedies are appropriate for use as background constitutional remedies, administered on a weekly basis during toxic clearing. The remedy chosen for weekly use need not be limited to just these however.

Good sources for learning about the Matridonal remedies (which include the first six remedies listed below) are Melissa Assilem, The Gifts of the Mother ? Narayana Publications, Kandern, Germany 2009 and Alize Timmernam [“The Love and Care Hormone,” Spectrum of Homeopathy, Perinatal edition, 1/1/2013 but JK also has an as yet unpublished ms of hers]. Keep alert, as new sarcodes continue to be introduced.


In the child, abdominal, pain that may manifest with reflux, belching, constipation and diarrhea. Depression. Diarrhea. Mother and child: prostration, restlessness and apathy. Poor impulse control. As the organ remains much misunderstood but manifesting global functions in relation to all systems, applies to many conditions where any indication of placental dysfunction. See the discussion of autoimmunity on page 000.

Lac Humanum

Poor ability to maintain good relationships. Tendency to addiction. Lack of or dysfunctional history of breast feeding. Compare with Lac Maternum, below (where the issue of incomplete incarnation evidence in daydreaming and lack of joy is stronger).

Lac Maternum

As above though utilizing the milk of nine mothers. Enlarged issue of incomplete incarnation.


Unusual degree of innocence. Respiratory issues, distorted sense of time.


Highly hormonal remedy. “I am a doormat” issue from having been longtime dominated. Similar to Carcinosin in expressing excessive responsibility. Great Mother theme.

Amniotic Fluid

Over adaptation to the needs for others. Look for the miasm in the parents.


Hyper-attachment in an atmosphere or history of admonition.


Slavish rule-following, ambition, lack of connection to emotions. Look for rigidity among the parents.

Cuprum Cum Carcinosin

Tinus Smits’ amalgam of Carc and Cuprum, applicable when features of both are evident, which is often as the remedies overlap a lot.

Vernix Caseosa

Made from infant sebum, wherefore the remedy state reflects excessive vulnerability due to inadequate boundaries.


Inner conflict theme wherefore alternately hard, unfeeling, cruel on the one hand, and helpless on the other. Ameliorated by rapid eating, stuffs himself.

Rhus Tox

Connection to past trauma cannot be let go. Like scar tissue, the mindset lacks elasticity.


The opposite end of the pendulum from Lac Maternum: the client is so fully incarnated that the feeling of oneness with the universe is socially distancing.

Saccharum Officinalum

Distractability, overly-affectionate, general dryness, indecision, fruitless search for

love because incapable of self-love.

Mother-child bond

Cadmium Muriaticum

Powerless, overly dramatic due to poor relation to mother.


Where the mother exerts a stagnating effect on the child’s digestive tract, this organic tissue-consuming bacteria invades the mucosa and forms a biofilm.

Muriatic Acidum

Mother has a destructive presence in the child’s life.

Veratrum Album

Terrible fear due to demotion from privileged status in regard to the mother.


A sexually abused mother can transmit debilitating anxiety to the child.

Posterior Pituitary (the gland that secretes Oxytocin)

Has been indicated the most, predominantly in children when maturational markers or behavioral issues have been delayed and has been especially useful as an intercurrent in cases of bedwetting.

Unda # 202 and #700

Peripheral drainage remedies for when the situation is profoundly syphilitic. Each would best be combined with a general drainage and a functional remedy.



Emaciation due to lack of nutrients, tubercular state.


Conjunction of debility, poor appetite and nervous system complaints such as insomnia and anxiety.


Malarial miasm. History of persecution, social deprivation, injustice.


Increases appetite, physical strength. Emotional context: irresolution, night terrors, hurriedness.


Thyroid issues, restless, desperation and obsessiveness akin to starvation.


Oxygen deprivation often occurring at birth. Underprescribed because the prevalence of cord clamping is not sufficiently recognized.

General “dampness” and psoric picture invites worm etiology.


Biofilm gut issue: a slimy community of micro-organisms, attached to a wet or moist surface that include bacteria, yeasts, algae and fungi only microscopically visible. In my experience, detoxification of the biofilm addresses failure to thrive and promotes metabolism. Expressed in accordance with Sankaran’s attachment vs non-attachment theme: General sensation: sharp, sticking, stinging, stitching.

Key remedies in the family:


Consider for ASD in sycotic families, delusion of criminality.

Scrophularia nodosa

Consider for ASD in cancer miasm families, with the effects of grief, over-adaptation to the needs of others.


Consider for ASD in syphilitic families, with hopelessness, despondency and exhaustion.


Consider for ASD in tubercular families, hyperactivity, temperature aggravation, delusions of ghosts.

Unda # 17 and #39

Functional remedies that are best combined with a general drainage and a peripheral drainage remedy.

SOLIPSISTIC STATES (living in one’s own world)


We differentiate between the passive and dynamically presenting solipsistic states

Inert, non-reactive pole


Entirely self-sufficient. Does not want stimulus. As if content to remain in the womb.


Passively self-sufficient with no need of stimulus because feels already connected to all things. A state of oneness.


As the gas protects the planet, the issue of being hermetically sealed, protected. Inner gates leading to other inner gates so as to fragment the personality.

Hyper-reactive pole


Dynamic and self-referential guilt. As in “I am guilty because I am guilty”. As sensitive to karmic issues as Phosphorus is to impressions. In the ASD presentation it as though a past life’s theme “hangover” is choreographing emotional reactivity.


“I am alone because am condemned.” Volatile, incapable of a relationship.


Retreat due to identity denial. Contradiction aggravates. Compare to Black Mamba.

Lanthanides (trapped within or lacking autonomy, as per Jan Scholten)


Fearful of taking the first step toward autonomy.

Cereum Carbonicum

In his or own world due to lack of identity support from a parent. Fear of independent existence wherefore retreats.


In his own world due to needing to prove his transcendence from it. Impervious to influence, mischievous.

Insularity (one step removed from full solipsism)

Cereus Serpentinus (Cactus self-sufficiency theme elucidated by Massimo Mangialavori and Sankaran)

Chronex Fleckeri (Box Jellyfish). When there are huge polarities in the case, amelioration from the sea, learning disability. Elucidated by Jo Evans in her Sea Remedies book.


Introversion with arrogance, pugnacity. Similar to Platina.


Cold, haughty, emotionally distant.

Obsessiveness (Note: This feature of ASD may be seen heightened in children having experienced the carrot-and-stick behavior modification of the ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) method).


Perseverative anxiety. Sensitivity to emotional state of others among family and close friends.


Slave to rules. Emotionally cramped. Anger with screaming.


OCD from the standpoint of needing to self-soothe. Backdrop of jealousy or grief due to family trauma.


OCD from the standpoint of self-soothing to survive. Rages with intense remorse.


Obsessed re the possibility of his or her harming or upsetting another. Wretched, overwrought with concerns. Everything is her fault.

Psorinum/Nitric Acid

Complementary nit-picking remedy states. Psorinum from the standpoint of having an inner ledger, constantly tracking gains and losses. Nitric Acidum from the standpoint that negative experiences are unforgettable, incontrovertible.

Rhus Tox

Inelastic mindset in regarding the continuous presence of past traumatic events. Cannot let go of them.

Tarentula/Aranea diadema or ixobola? Jerry which aranea?

Restless spider states. Tarentula destructive from grief. Aranea, despondent and morose with restlessness. Both averse to touch.


Chameleon-like, wants to please others so forgets her own wants and needs. Poor decision-making, not in her self-interest. Never Well Since vaccination but also family fracturing. Mental gymnastics and anguish due to poor self-esteem.


Perseverating, complaining, easily upset. But also helpful. Mental fatigue. Often where the father is remote or formidable.


Tormenting thoughts, obsessiveness, craving sympathy but also unworthy of it. Look for where there is a history of infection.



All dialogue requires some discord, wants, or reaction. This remedy is so self-satisfied as to negate the need for dialogue.

Lanthanum Phosphoricum

Incomplete speech development. Psychic doubt that is entitled to independence wherefore as in prophetic self-fulfillment, isolates.

Kali Bromatum

Nothing one can say can overturn one’s being in disfavor with the Supreme Being. Hence, little impetus to speak.


In the wake of a compromised will, little impetus to voice a true concern.


Isolated and speechless due to a sense of abandonment. Out of this reality as in a drug state according to Mangialovori.

HYPERSENSITIVITY (to the extent this is due to autophagy, the biotherapeutic drainage method’s effectiveness would appear to reenergize synaptic pruning.


Emotionally sensitive, great sensitivity to sound. Vacancy of thought differentiates it from the spiders.

Butterfly remedies

Lively, agitated, restless but mercurial. Abandonment issues. Patricia Le Roux’s Butterflies, An Innovative Guide to the Use of Butterflies in Homeopathy, Narayana Publications, Kandern, German, 2009.

Hepar Sulph

With underlying vulnerability. Irritable.


Meditative proving remedy. Profoundly tranquilizing due to it detoxification effect. Aggravating for a short period of time, wherefore Madeline Evans recommends use of Carcinosin after several weeks.

Theridion (and other spiders)

The most sensitive of the spiders. Unproductive activity.


Troubled by the slightest problem. Unconsolidated energy.


Where a legacy of persecution, injustice, poverty. Louis Klein a good reference. Louis Klein, Miasms and Nosodes, Narayana Publications, Kandern, Germany 2009.

BCG Vaccine Nosode (similar to Puls and Tub) Utilized in Europe but not the US.

Lac equinum

Milk of the horse. As with other milks presents with relationship issues. Here, due to the conflict between individuality and herd membership. Horses are high strung so the issue prompts excessive frustration dysfunction related to organizational thinking.


These are remedies whose nature is explicitly esoteric as they deal with subtle energies and exposures. They can be made from sunlight, moonlight, or X-ray for example.

Sol Britannica

A remedy reflecting disharmony within the sense dimension of Smell: general disorientation, indecision, unhappiness, grief, wheezing. Look for when there is a legacy of dislocation in the family’s history.

Electromagnetic Field Exposure


As with other Lanthanides, sensitive to subtle energies. Possesses unusual magnetic properties (wherefore used in atomic reactors) but has no known biological function. As yet unclear remedy picture but consider in EMF sensitivity..


Myriad disturbances in accordance with x-ray exposure, key would be return of old symptoms.

Magnetus Polus Arcticus

Completely fenced into his own world, forcing a slow pace by elaborating unnecessarily on details and talking slowly (as per Ulrich Welte case).

EMF, Television radiation, and Mobile phone

Tautopathic effects in regard to the frequently associated symptoms of fatigue, sleep disturbance, head pain and mental confusion. Determine according to exposure.



Where the damage is understood to be chiefly to the nerves.

Kali phos

Can be used as a cell salt in conjunction with the other Phosphorus cell salts, for example in Nerve Tonic by Hyland’s.


(see also ENWS materials, page 000)

Ant Tart

Specifically in regard to effects of the smallpox vaccine. Though no longer given routinely since 1972, its use has increased especially among military personnel in response to the terrorist threat.


Intolerable itching. Where there is a history of emotional suppression. As opposed to for example, Thuja or Silica, the determining feature with a familial legacy could be evidence of an “I’ve had it up to here!” issue.



Well known. With erupting poor self-esteem, obsessiveness. Poor decision making. Inauthenticity.


Well known. With hypersensitivity, timorousness, perceptivity of small details.

Cocculus indica

Frequent waking due to worrying about others.



Often occur due to brain overload. See Roger Morrison’s Desktop Companion to Physical Pathology for an excellent list of possible remedies.
Or, if suspecting an autophagy problem (inadequate neurological pruning due to overload) look to brain tissue sarcodes and Unda number remedies.

Sexual Frenzy

Cypridium Pub

Ecstatic and wakeful at night. Desire to masturbate.


Lascivious impulses that she struggles to contain.


Feeling of being diminished as a person. With small appetite and a fear of eating when not hungry. Masturbatory urgency.


Cannot sleep due to sexual thoughts and impulses. Yellowish, yeasty urine sediment.



Shameless, exhibitionistic, suspicious. After humiliation, mortification; or in sibling rivalry, with a fear of being sold or given away.

Lilium Tigrinum

Besides herself. Does two things at once. Religious delirium with sexual frenzy.


Vaginal sensitivity. Haughty, contemptuous.


Sexual mania with rage and delirium.


From excess of amorous feeling.


(Note that regressive tendencies occurring during biotherapeutic drainage or pharmaceutical clearing may not need to be treated with a remedy. Instead, let the drainage run its course and the regression should resolve on its own, leaving the child in an improved state. If regressive tendencies remain when the drainage phase is completed, use remedies such as the following.

Baryta Carb

Babyish, desire to hide, craving approval, developmental delays.


“Velcro” child, clinging.

Viscum Album

Regression due to past lives or karmic influence (Meditative Provings insight).

Lac Leoninum

Licking of the hands and fingers.

Lac Delphinum

Milk of the dolphin. Playful antics, clairvoyance, desire for amusement, masturbation.



Reverson to primal impulses and behaviors. Licking, mouthing. An affinity with Lac Maternum.


(miasms in the perhaps, metaphorical sense)

Karma is understood here in terms of concepts recurring throughout this book. These include memories, behaviors, creative energies, and the impact of traumatic acts consolidated within Kidney Yang or the dimension of Hearing; the transmission of Hearing consolidated material to the Hun or ethereal soul (equivalent to Jung’s Collective Unconscious) from where it becomes accessible to a newborn soul; family legacies of illness, addictiveness or specific talents (that also fall under the rubric of a miasm). Where karmic influence in and of itself is thought to have an especial presence, remedies such as the following may be interpolated:


What Phosphorus is to external impressions, Bromium is to the presence of karmic influence. Utilize when a child sees ghosts or spiritual entities; where there is a sense of the primacy of rebirth as a past or current issue.

Meditative proving remedies (Madeline Evans)

Note: In addition to the ones below, all remedies in this two-volume set merit study. Evans’s analyses emphasize effects on or reflections of the chakra system. Useful intercurrently in the Sine Wave method. Before using, study each in depth.


Releases darkness from ancestral influence, fear, grief, hatred. Where the autism has an out-of-body quality. Influence on the Heart, Thymus and Brow chakras.

Bay Leaf

Highly syphilitic remedy due to its reflection of hidden states, deceptiveness, emotional closedness; as opposed to Merc., however with mental slowness and confusion. Influence on the Brow and Solar Plexus chakras.

Berlin Wall

Where a legacy of futility, repression, and restriction. Split in the spirit. Powerful energy releasing remedy with regard to entry to a new age. Influences Thymus gland and Heart chakras.


Autism with dyslexia; extreme fragility due to legacy of trauma, medication abuse; vagueness of personality, lack of substance. Supports Base chakra.


Prompts inner stillness. The meditative proving discussion describing promotion to higher levels of spiritual awareness via lighting the way to truth especially among children reflects Swedenborg. Influences the Heart and Brow chakras. Similar to Slate, also worth studying.

Rose Quartz

Where parents maintain the child was reluctant to incarnate; a legacy of non-appreciation and manic-depression. Obsessive thinking. Poor concentration. Opens the heart. Positive influence on all chakras. Can be used in a positive way, to support unconditional love and an open heart chakra in the exhausted parents.


Highly karmic remedy, deeply syphilitic. Supports Base, Throat and Heart chakras. Important as it promotes release of many sorts. Underused.

Gem essence remedies

Note: In addition to the two remedies below the other ten jewels described by Peter Tumminello merit close reading. “Soft focus” remedies that — like the meditative provings remedies — have an affinity for karmic issues, sexuality, and creativity. Reflective of spiritual concerns within a family legacy they are useful intercurrently as in the Sine Wave method. Before using, study each in depth.

Lapis Lazuli

Where parents insist the child’s autism represents an inner struggle for meaning, where there is also a need for amusement; when there is a legacy of coldness in the mother.


Where there is a legacy of the self having been fragmented or lost due to isolation, panic and fear. Images of darkness prevail.


[with the potential to be universally applicable)

Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF2)

Fibroblast growth factors are derived from molecules used by neurons to communicate with one another. In normal amounts they promote visual acuity and vision repair. When in excess (as in neural overload) cellular signaling breaks down, as in Stage Four homotoxicosis. Barbara Brewitt’s research cited in Patricia Lemer’s Envisioning a Bright Future indicates that low potency remedies made from this sarcode can improve nervous system, immune and organ function.


Key ingredient in pesticides (discussed under Toxic Burden). Especially where the exposure causes a Never Well Since situation. Remedy to use for detoxification.

Glutaminicum acidum (Glut-ac.)

Remedy used by Reckeweg to improve brain function in impaired children.

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Aspartame

Environmentally pervasive excitotoxins discussed within Toxic Burden.

Why was I born?Children’s Remedies for the Trauma of Divorce

Why was I born?
Children’s Remedies for the Trauma of Divorce

Divorce is hugely impactful to children. I will identify some of the principle themes of divorce trauma. The homeopathic remedy suited to the child in need of each is also given.

Today’s blog elaborates on themes drawn from my books, one that interprets a condition from a homeopathic perspective: Interpreting Chronic Illness and the other providing a homeopathic context for relationship trauma: Toxic Relationship Cure.

Thuja The only reason you came together was to have me!

For such children divorce indicates that no reason exists for them to have been born. The self–esteem of such a child plummets as she seeks to become anyone other than her non-acceptable self. She is ashamed and ashamed of being ashamed. This translates into the inauthenticity of chameleon like behavior, mental gymnastics and obsessiveness. Unable to access her self-interest she is prone to bad decision-making.

Nat Sulph I just don’t count for anything!

Once a Thuja layer has been peeled away a more authentic but grief-laden level bubbles up from within the psyche. If it’s a Nat Sulph, remedy state the child is prone to depression with a tendency to feel his opinions and feelings are constantly being dismissed.

Lachesis I cannot bottle up my grief!

The Lachesis child is emotionally intense, full f rage and grief she is constrained from fully expressing. Her feelings vent in manipulativeness, loquacity, flamboyance, seductiveness, but also with asthma and sleep disturbance.

Manganum Nothing I do is right!

Bad enough that the parents are divorcing but when one or the other is also domineering the fretful situation of a Manganum remedy state can arise.

As with Lachesis the problem is suppression of emotions. Only here confidence is undermined. Bitterness, withdrawal and a sense that one’s every word and action must be questioned results.

Mag Carb and Mag Mur Your fighting with one another means you don’t love me!

Divorce can terrify a child into thinking that her relationship is doomed. Equating anger or aggression with the withdrawal of love she becomes a peacemaker at all costs. When relational insecurity to the father is stronger the remedy is Mag Carb. When the child’s insecurity is primarily about the relationship with her mother then the remedy is Mag Mur.

Ammon Carb and Ammon Mur You won’t get anything out of me!

In the aftermath of a divorce it is common for a child to blame one of the parents, more often the nearby as opposed to the geographically distant parent. Unaware of the actual source of his anger the child is insulting to his parent, full of attitude, sour and impossible to please. If directly confronted with his behavior the child clams up giving away nothing as if to say, “You won’t get anything out of me!” When the bitterness is directed toward the dad the remedy is Ammon Carb. When its target is the mother the remedy is Ammon Mur.

As they never quite manage to say in the TV commercials, if you are concerned about the impact of divorce on a child talk, to your homeopath!






Hillary Clinton’s Homeopathic RemedyCross me and you have crossed a rattler

Hillary Clinton’s Homeopathic Remedy
Cross me and you have crossed a rattler

Having already analyzed Donald Trump from a homeopathic perspective, I am responding to requests to explore  his presidential rival Hillary Clinton.  After considering well-known facts of her life, mainstream media information and knowledge of her public persona a likely remedy choice has emerged.

But first some background for readers unfamiliar with homeopathy:

Homeopathy is a system of medicine governed by a principle known as the Law of Similars that states: use like to cure like.  Homeopaths prescribe a particular “remedy”  that can be made from a wide variety of substances (including but not limited to plants, minerals, gases and venoms) that is prepared in an extremely diluted form. The same substance, in large doses would actually cause the same  symptoms one seeks to treat.

That homeopathic remedies can be prescribed for an acute illness is recognized.  Less known, at least in the U.S. is homeopathy’s ability to address longstanding problems. Constitutional Homeopathy looks at chronic ailments and illness prevention.  More dilute than acute remedies but even more energetic when accurately chosen, constitutional remedies have a deep and lasting action that can fundamentally alter and improve a person’s state of health. Constitutional prescribing takes every aspect of a person into consideration. The treatment is truly holistic, factoring into remedy selection the client’s emotional state, temperament, food preferences and presenting complaint.  There are hundreds of homeopathic remedies to choose from and their action is laid out in great detail in homeopathic source books.

What is the remedy that would support Hillary Clinton’s constitution and improve her state of physical and emotional health?

The constitutional remedy that Secretary Clinton needs is made from the venom of the American rattlesnake and is called Crotalus Horridus.

In homeopathic studies (called Provings) the action of each remedy when taken in a gross (not diluted) amount has been established.  In this case, a gross and non-lethal amount of exposure to this particular snake venom would have a most interesting effect, producing in healthy individuals who have little in common with  Hillary Clinton, a state of health which would mirror her actual and potential ailments, plus some of her personality traits. In accordance with the Law of Similars, subjecting the venom to a series of dilutions at an FDA approved pharmacy yields the homeopathic remedy ready to be administered.

Horridus sounds and actually means “horrible.” But the “remedy state,” meaning qualities found in a person needing Crotalus Horridus is actually a mixed bag. Let me describe its various features that indicate it is the appropriate remedy for Hillary Clinton.

On the positive side

  • An independent and adventurous spirit
  • Leadership qualities
  • Sympathy and a tendency to protect the weak (her work on behalf of children and minorities)
  • Love of travel
  • Playfulness
  • A spiritual or moral bent
  • Good with language

Qualities that can be either good or bad

  • Personal relationships tend to be highly charged (in contrast to Donald Trump whose remedy, Fluoric Acidum reflects relationships tending to disintegrate)
  • Impulsivity (reckless use of a single email account for personal and State matters)
  • Emotionally intense but suffer from the need for self-control (true about all snake remedies). Handling of Bill’s Monica Lewinsky affair tested and inflamed this quality
  • Cannot bear to be controlled. This is actually the core theme of the Crotalus Horridus remedy

On the negative side

Food preferences

Ms. Clinton’s recognized food and drink preferences suggest the remedy Crotalus Horridus. These include creamy and spicy food, as well as red wine.

Though I am by no means suggesting a drinking problem, Crotalus Horridus is often prescribed for alcoholism. If the remedy is on point then control of alcoholic indulgence suggests itself as a lifestyle recommendation for Hillary Clinton.


  • Hemorrhagic tendency–Reflecting the actual snakebite’s toxic effect to cause bleeding. Ms. Clinton has suffered from blood clots and receives treatment against their recurrence.
  • Tendency to confusion and faintness, a Crotalus Horridus feature.
  • Nausea and vomiting. Ms. Clinton’s 2012 illness diagnosed as viral gastroenteritis.
  • http://www.lifescript.com/health/centers/digestive/articles/hillary_clintons_stomach_bug.aspx is consistent with GI symptoms associated with this remedy (again reflecting suppression of fight or flight emotion).
  • Voice issues, hoarseness, cough paroxysms, typical in snake remedies.
  • Vision issues (since her fall) are covered by Crotalus Horridus (but also by other remedies such as Arnica and Natrum Sulphurica that I would give her first for this problem).
  • Menopausal remedy, Crotalus Horridus would come in use for numerous complaints pertaining to her life stage (so long as the overall picture fits).
  • Hypothyroid condition for which she is medicated. Actually, another rattlesnake remedy, Crotalus Cascavella is more strongly indicated for thyroid issues. In my experience clients requiring a snake remedy tend to continue to need remedies in the snake kingdom for a while. Likely after having derived benefit from Crotalus Horridus Clinton would not long after require Crotalus Cascavella to address her thyroid problem.

Donald Trump’s Homeopathic Remedy

Donald Trump’s Homeopathic Remedy

Let’s solve the Rubik’s Cube of Donald Trump. This will involve connecting the dots between a love of property and glamour, obsession with building walls, tendency to superficial relationships, cupidity and ruthlessness, Fluoric Acidum is unmistakably Donald Trump’s indicated remedy. Discussion of the remedy sheds light not only on Donald Trump but homeopathic practice and philosophy.

How would you like to get behind Donald Trump’s eyes or walk a mile in his shoes? An excursion into the Trump mind-set could decide whether or not to vote for him. Homeopathy offers two ways this can be carried out.

  1. A direct method undertaken only in accordance with supervised homeopathic research protocols involves daily self-administration of minute amounts of a toxic substance, in this case fluoric acid. After a month your inner Donald Trump will bud and soon blossom.
  2. The second, more convenient method involves reading about the homeopathic remedy derived from fluoric acid. This information (the remedy’s materia medica) issues from journals of research subjects who have undergone method one.

The day when Donald Trump actually becomes a patient any bias I may hold against him will be set aside and confidentiality will rule our relationship. But he does not work with me, poses a suitability risk in regard to the office of president and his numerous interviews, frequent appearance in political debates, pronouncements on social media, vivid relationship and business proclivities showcase a temperament inviting to study (also see this link for some of the basic facts about his life). Although details of the presumptive Republican nominee’s medical history are scant, a particular remedy Fluoric Acidum recommends itself as holding up a mirror to the Trump psyche.

The indicated remedy

An indicated remedy profile depicts illness susceptibilities but also so much more. Materia medica divulges an analysis of the remedy-type personality; an accounting of its core values; a depiction of characteristic behaviors; and a window into a key emotional struggle the client is typically at pains not to reveal.  After a remedy has run its course numerous improvements in health are usually noticed. This occurs because the remedy prompts resolution of a hot button issue. When circumstances cause the hot button to be pushed behaviors and outbursts arise that anyone other than a homeopath would chalk up to the individual’s personality.

Depending on how similar they are to Trump in the first place, week by week and month by month participants in the study steadily report behaviors and symptoms suggesting they are morphing into Donald Trump.

But judge for yourself:

The Fluoric Acidum remedy

What follows is a sampling of Fluoric Acidum materia medica adapted from a master homeopath, Rajan Sankaran. The remedy is described as connecting the dots between the following features:

* A demand for glamour

They will push anything and anyone aside in the all-absorbing desire to shine and glitter. They love to be the big macho guy for everybody to look up to. They want to draw the attention with their big car and high position in glamour world. They are very ambitious, want to climb up high and earn lots of money.

* Tendency to superficial relationships

Fluorine is the lightest, the most active and reactive, forming and breaking relationships very quickly. This can be seen in the symptomatology of Fluoric acid. The remedy state is flirtatious, has many acquaintances but no deep relationship. The term “buoyancy” has been used to describe it. The word is derived from “buoy,” a conical object that floats on the surface of the ocean and never sinks or reaches any depth. The feeling of being in a fluorine state is abnormal for a human being, at any time.

* Immorality

Aversion to responsibility, sexual desire increased; attracted to strangers, and increased energy. A naive psychopath, prone to serious gambling.

*Mental buoyancy

*Isolation and narcissism

*Cupidity (overt demand for sexual experience)

*Dependency on property


*Compulsion to break taboos

*Under the delusion that he must get rid of servants

In other words, “You’re fired.”  Fluoric Acid is the only remedy to appear in this rubric.


Illness susceptibility:

Comes into play in regard to ailments of the bones, mucous membranes and epithelium, complaints of old age, and premature old age; sexual exhaustion, weakly constitutions, sallow skin, and emaciation.

Treatment with the remedy

In accordance with the homeopathic dictum, Use like to treat like, repeated and succussed (vigorously shaken) dilutions of fluoric acid (producing the remedy) effectively treat a state reflected in the substance’s proving. Anyone having access to or influence with Donald Trump who wishes to make him aware of this beneficial remedy is encouraged to contact me.

How did Trump get this way?

Fluoric acid exposure engenders a Trump-like mindset and physiology in research subjects. Donald Trump likely came to exemplify Fluoric Acidim by other means.  An inherited tendency to the state that homeopaths refer to as miasmatic is responsible. Understanding Donald Trump’s Fluoric Acidum remedy state directs us into intricacies of homeopathic and Traditional Chinese Medicine theory that I now relate in condensed fashion. A more expansive account can be found in my book Interpreting Chronic Illness, The Convergence of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy and Biomedicine.

Fluoric acid’s sphere of influence, extending to the bones, kidneys, bladder, epithelium, sexual function, and general vitality pertains to the Water phase in Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Five Phases system. My own reworking of the Five Phases, called Sense Dimensional Analysis designates Water as the Sense Dimension pertaining to the sense of Hearing. An existential conundrum is embedded within Hearing. It pits Entropy versus Consolidation. What does this mean?

In brief, entropy means our physical dissolution upon death. This is “opposed” by the energy of consolidation evident in the bones whose hard and dense tissue endures through time. Entropic dissolution of our body upon death is also combatted and vanquished via reproductive function, the fact that enduring characteristics are conveyed into the future by means of DNA.

Trump’s handshaking phobia and obsession with building a wall

These well known Trump traits reflect a germophobia feature pertaining to a category of illness susceptibility homeopaths call the syphilitic miasm within which Fluoric Acidum belongs. Let me explain.

An issue pertaining to boundaries expressed within the Sense Dimension of Hearing is reflected in the softness and moisture of epithelium on the one hand and its polar opposite, the hardness and dryness of bones on the other. Despite their opposing textures and function both tissues demarcate boundaries within a “permeability versus structure” spectrum. The “permeability versus resistance” conundrum’s infiltration of the subconscious produces angst: existential questions evoking the quandary of the outsider. These questions include:

“Am I granted entry or am I to be kept out?” “Am I a club member or must I transgress a boundary in order to belong?” “How do I secure my physical body from the intrusion of unwelcome germs?” As we have seen the latter question reflects the syphilitic miasm’s keynote germophobia feature.

 The syphilitic miasm and the Sense Dimension of Hearing

A syphilitic delusion is embedded within Hearing that fuels a belief that permeability is suspect. Thus, only rigid structures are to be trusted.  Borders must be fortified. Walls must be built to stave off foreign elements such as Muslims, Mexicans and ocean surf lapping at the margins of his golf course. Trump’s fears of contamination and disdain for permeability betrays ingrained terror of the nether side of the life and death boundary. His fears render him suspicious. His flight from fear expresses failure to resolve entropy versus consolidation. It compels short-term thinking, and speedy gratification of wealth, property, glamour and sexual wants.

Homeopathy’s notion of the syphilitic miasm is Hearing’s core conundrum inflamed to the point of consolidating syphilis’s influence within familial legacy. In homeopathic theory the remedy Donald Trump needs, Fluoric Acidum is a mentally buoyant, ruthless and transgressive strain of the syphilitic miasm.

Donald Trump’s inherited legacy displays the dilemma of an overcompensating outsider. Congenital difficulty facing up to entropy draws him and those within his line toward consolidation: over reliance on defensive structures such as walls; materiality and time compressed pleasures such as sex. Conjunct with illness susceptibilities described this is the remedy Fluoric Acidum.

Implications for our understanding of Trump

  1. Trump’s apparent heritage of transgression invites continuance of transgressive behavior. This reflects what to a homeopath appears to be syphilitic legacy. Though conventionally viewed as compensatory of insecurity (sexual or otherwise) Trump’ bluster serves to thwart congenital outsider status.
  2. Regarded through the lens of Fluoric Acidum Donald Trump will continue to shoot from the hip despite all attempts to behave in a more presidential manner. His transforming into a leader capable of long-term thinking or development of well-considered policy is not to be expected.


How we know what a remedy such as Fluoric Acidum actually does

We let “experiment” temporarily stand for the less recognizable term proving (from a German word meaning to test) that homeopaths use when referring to the research process I am about to describe.

In our experiment six to ten healthy men and women having little or anything in common with Donald Trump are gathered together. For our purposes each of them is in the vicinity of Mr. Trump’s 69 years of age. Over the course of six months these individuals commit to maintaining stable lives. At the same time they will daily, self-administer minute amounts of an unspecified substance provided to them. All the while they maintain a journal detailing thoughts, feelings, behaviors, symptoms and even encounters cropping up during the six-month period. At the conclusion of the project the journals are forwarded to the research supervisor (known as a proving master). His close reading of the journals enables the supervisor to extract from and collate specific symptoms but also behaviors, and emotions directly tied to the substance’s influence. Events consistently aligned with the presence of the substance in the subjects’ lives are also noted. Unusual and rare entries in every category are designated as significant. In the resulting materia medica entry these are highlighted.

Note concerning homeopathic texts

Principal homeopathic texts are known as materia medica describe the total influence that a substance has been found to have on a healthy individual. These are extraordinarily truthful resources, making no distinction between desired and toxic effects. Nor any limit placed on substances from which a remedy may be derived. This includes but is not limited to plants, minerals, venoms, nosodes (illness discharge) or sarcodes (anatomical tissue). A lesson we derive from this is:

Depending on the exact circumstance and amount used any substance can be either a medicine or a poison.

Homeopathic materia medica has two relatives in the medical arena. These are 1) toxicology texts describing the deleterious effects of substances on living things and; 2) the physicians’ desk reference that focuses on the desired effects pharmaceuticals have on appropriately symptomatic individuals. Though a direct physiological consequence of the same drug, undesired outcomes dubbed  “side” effects are viewed as only incidentally related to the beneficial drug.



Pot Calling the Kettle QuackMercury in medicine and homeopathy

Pot Calling the Kettle Quack
Mercury in medicine and homeopathy

Is there ever a bad time to set the record straight? In mythology Mercury is the god of communication. Now is as good a time as any to get our facts straight.  Medical truths concerning the element named in Mercury’s honor should be properly communicated.

factoid is an untruth repeated so often that it gets taken as true.  A factoid example is equating homeopathic medicine with medical quackery.  Not only false, the exact opposite is true.

The term quack was first and justifiably applied to medical doctors guilty of prescribing high levels of the toxic metal mercury for syphilis but also for a wide range of other ailments. In ancient times mercury was called quicksilver and so doctors routinely giving Mercury to their patients became known as quickers. In common usage the term was shortened to quick. Then, as patients underwent neurological decline and soon expired this word morphed into quack.  

Medical history shows that more often than not it was homeopathic physicians who were burdened with cleaning up the mess left by their allopathic (non-homeopathic) medical colleagues. In order to help the quickened and failing patients they had inherited homeopaths applied the Law of Similars (using like to cure like). Their work involved developing a non-toxic version of mercury, but also other highly dilute medications known as remedies still in use today. To learn more about the homeopathic Mercury read Jonathan Hardy’s excellent profile of the remedy.

Possibly to deflect from the unpleasant history of quackery mainstream apologists speculate that the word quaksalver containing the Dutch, kwakken (to impulsively fling an object) as in heedlessly flinging a worthless remedy at a sick individual is at the root of quack. http://mentalfloss.com/article/33558/why-fake-doctor-called-quack.  But a clinical hallmark of mercury poisoning is in fact, mercuriality, meaning changeability and impulsivity! It is far likelier that the term quaksalver is itself derived from quicksilver. 

It’s time the pot stopped calling the kettle quack.
