Homeopathy Tips for 12/29/09 The Vessel Needs to Break

When treating chronic illness there comes a time when the return of old symptoms can challenge the homeopath as to what to do next. If it is not clearly understood where a person is in their healing cycle, it can be most frustrating for the homeopath. He may even be tempted to change the remedy because it seems the remedy has stopped working. Understanding the bigger picture is vital to successful case management.

Often when a person has been doing well and responding to the most beneficial remedy, a time will come when it seems that all of the old symptoms return. Sometimes this is referred to as an aggravation. If this occurs after years of successful treatment, it can be very confusing. Why after all of this time is the person suffering like when they first started to take the remedy? Shouldn’t the person be getting better still?

I have seen this scenario play out many times in the course of healing chronic illness. If it is not understood where the person is at in their bigger healing cycle, it is tempting to change the remedy.

The physical body is the reflection of the spiritual vital force. There is really no other way to express it in this time/space continuum that we are locked into. The physical body is the vessel for the spiritual vital force. As we heal it must break in order to expand and hold more spiritual light. When this occurs it is seen as a return of the old symptoms.  This is necessary in order for us to grow spiritually.

When this occurs after successful treatment, it usually indicates that a greater healing is happening. If it is misunderstood, then the homeopath is tempted to change the remedy and miss the opportunity that is presenting itself.

The best approach is to support the healing process as the vessel breaks so it can expand. Continue the same remedy but change the potency. Changing the potency will support this process and the person should go through their “aggravation” and heal in a greater way.

I have seen this happen many times and it is usually indicative of the person having reached 80% of their healing. The last 20% can seem like everything finally falls into place for the person as the vessel rebuilds itself. The body is literally becoming a new vessel that holds more spiritual light; that is a more truthful reflection of health.

So the next time you become confused seeing a person who has been healing fine over an extended period of time, seemingly take a giant step backwards, recognize where they are in their greater healing. Change the potency of the remedy that got them this far and you will probably see the miracle that you have been expecting. Healing never proceeds in a straight path. The vessel always needs to break in order to expand; to hold more light. This is how true healing happens.

    Well said. Regeneration is often painful, no matter which form or process it takes.
    Pain is the mother of change and change is the seed of growth. And growth my friends, is the fruit of Life.

      You have Superbly said the truth!

    In Organon 6, Dr Hahnemann says that when this happens using his recommended course of gradually increasing LM potencies, that the correct action when the symptoms return is to stop the remedy (and all remedies), and allow the healing to proceed on its own. I don’t recollect the exact time frame, but I believe he says about 2 weeks is usual.

    well said!
    But I may add that it may be wise to keep the patient also be informed of it, to avoid him running away?

    Strangely enough a patient was started on CALC-CARB 200 every 15 days and in 2.1/2 months was cured from a thyroid malfunction. Today she is changed to CAUSTICUM 10M and seems to be doing well. How would you explain this?

    Yvonne, The body has an amazing ability to heal if given the proper inspiration. It looks as though the prescriber did a very good job and helped this person heal perfectly. Only homeopathy or other spiritual type healing can acheive these results.
    Thanks for your comment,
    Robert Field
