Creating Waves of Awareness

There was a beautiful article in Links about Urtica Urens entitled, "The Death of the Father." It had remained in my mind when a case needed out of the box thinking.

Just recently a woman visited me, still overcome by grief and emotion about her son, who sadly died from Ng bowel treatment 3 years ago. Her life was so hard that she had ceased activities enjoyed before.


  • Bowel obstruction may be treated by inserting a flexible, lubricated nasogastric tube (NG tube) to suction out Gastro-intestinal blockage. 


Her daughter mentioned to me that she thought it was tied up with the death of her father when she was just 8 years old.  The woman was 1 of 4 siblings and the death had an enormous effect on her family.

There was no history of allergy to seafood or skin problems, though this morning she mentioned a rash under bra straps at times.

Over last few years had tried Ignatia Nat Mur,  Lac Maternum, somehow often seems to be elsewhere, but really these remedies had little effect. Something made me try Urtica Urens in a 200c potency.

She had one dose while sitting in the office with me and the remedy has not been repeated. Today, she could talk to me without choking up and states that her discomfort level when from a ten down to a two. She has started playing the piano again and thinking of an exercise class.



One is in awe of Homeopathy at times, Jean


  • National Journal of Homeopathy | LINKS January 2001 |  Dr Grandgeorge has a knack of getting a different type of insight into the homoeopathic remedies (Hura for fear of losing child). In his article on Urtica-urens, he highlights the mental aspect A/F death of father. He has cited 7 cases, mostly of women, where the disease was triggered by the death of the father.

    Case: The sister-in-law of a colleague was dying of breast cancer; her condition was deteriorating rapidly. When Grandgeorge asked the most important event in her life, which might have been the cause of the present complaint, his colleague replied that she never recovered from her father’s death five years ago. On that symptom she was given one dose of Urtica- urens 10MK. In some weeks her health improved and she lived for few years. In another case a woman experienced difficulty in breast-feeding her child on the fourth day after birth as the child looked very yellow. The mother recalled that her father who died of liver cancer several years earlier, was all yellow few days before his death. Urtica-urens was given and the mother was able to breast-feed her child thereafter. Didier Grandgeorge says "If a father dies, the child can no longer escape the symbiotic love with his mother because it is through the father that a child can break away from his mother". Father enables a child to go forward in life to the society and live a life of his/her own.

A Concise Materia Medica and Repertory of Nosodes author C. K. Shreedharan

Dr. Hahnemann's method of dilution, succussion and potentization of disease matter has been proved on human beings for their curative properties without causing any harm or side-effects.

Even though they contain no detectable matter from the original substance, these long-acting nosodes act deeply.

Homeopaths have found them essential remedies in the cure of acute and chronic diseases. These nosodes have often been used as an 'intercurrent' between other acute or constitutional remedies to see further improvement of health.

Dr Shreedharan has found the use of nosodes, like Psorinum, Bacillinum, Malandrinum, Medorrhinum, Tuberculinum, Carcinosinum, essential to treat most chronic cases.
