We concentrated on the most used homeopathic remedies in compositae family. The Compositae, plants in the daisy or sunflower family, form one of the largest families of flowering plants with some 25,000 species (roughly 10% of the total number of flowering plants) in over 1,500 genera. Recognized by their compound inflorescences consisting of many tiny flowers: a daisy has a yellow "core" of 200 disc florets,surrounded by 50 marginal, white ray florets with a conspicuous limb. A single daisy "flower" contains about 250 separate flowers! A sunflower has basically the same format. A dandelion consists of one kind of florets ("ligulate") only, but still has many florets combining to look like a single flower. In the fruit stage, however, all the individual fruits are clearly visible, each with its own "parachute," the so-called pappus.
Weeds of agriculture | Many Compositae are noxious weeds: Sow Thistle (Sonchus), Thistles (Carduus,Cirsium), Black Jack (Bidens pilosa), poisonous Senecio species; Ragweed or Ambrosiapollen is the main cause of hay fever in the continental USA.
Food | Sunflower is one of the world's main oil crops; lettuce, endive, globe artichoke and chicory are some of the other food plants in the family. Examples of culinary herbs are tarragon and chamomile.
Medicine | In general, many Compositae are used as herbal medicines all over the world. In Europe,Arnica has been used for centuries in wound healing. In Africa, Vernonia amygdalina is used by both man and chimpanzee against intestinal parasites. In Mexico over 200 species of the family are used in folk medicine.
Insecticide | Powdered remains of Anthemideae have been found in the abdominal cavity of the mummy of Ramses II, probably as an insecticide. Inula species are called fleabane, because of their use. Pyrethrum, made from the fruit of Tanacetum cinerariifolium, is an excellent natural insecticide and can be used without harm to mammals.
Horticulture | Many Compositae are important garden ornamentals: Chrysanthemums, Crown daisies, Oxeye daisies, Marigolds, Cosmos, Aster, Goldenrod, Everlasting, Dahlia

This day's program will focus on the sensitivity of plants and how they can reflect, mimic, express and heal the similar wounds of humans. On the positive side, not only can plants be highly sensitive to their environments, they also have the power to bounce back, show resiliency and regrow.
We will learn from Mary Ellen her thoughts on medicine today as it relates to her years of study with the masters, readings into Chinese medicine, and theoretical and philosophic mind. Let us look deeply within in order to understand self and our environment.

While we know that time heals all wounds, it does not help to say these words when living in the moment of grief. Sadness, emptiness, gloom are healthy natural responses to loss.
“The deepest wounds aren't the ones we get from other people hurting us. They are the wounds we give ourselves when we hurt other people.”
― Isobelle Carmody, Alyzon Whitestarr
“You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them
