Creating Waves of Awareness

The principle "Similibia similus curenteur" is mostly misundersood even by confirmed Homeopaths . What is Homeopathic treatment of Heart attack ? "Cactus" comes the prompt answer. Cactus is decidedly useful after the victim returns safe from a good modern ( Allopathic) hospital Or else Cactus may not help at all. Life and death issues must be well understood. During heart attack a blood vessel supplying blood to heart muscle gets blocked by a clot on fat deposit. A part of the heart muscle literally "dies". An emergency dislodgement of the block saves life but not always. A smoker is not always helped because Nicotine lowers the electrical threshold of the heart and even very small changes in electrical potentials can prove fatal. When a part of heart muscle receives less or no blood, another change also occurs. Electrical impulses govering the contaction and relaxation of heart chambers go haphazard . Sometimes sudden irregular impulses spread all over the heart and the heart dies of "electric shock". This is treated in an emergency unit by a defibrillator. A defibrillator applied on the chest surface delivers a sudden electric shock to the heart and revives it. Heart died of electric shock and revived by another electric shock well proves the "Similibia" theory.
But misunderstanding this and searching for a Homeopathic Materia Medica database for a remedy which given to a healthy man causes chest pain and sweating is incorrect

Good morning.Thank you Ms Debby.As you have said some react actively and others passively to the same stimulus in the same quantity. Human nature decides it . As I am never tired of repeating whether it is shock or liver disease it is the NATURE which begins the healing process first.Any remedy should help nature .Till this Allopaths and Homeopaths are on the same lines of thinking.
Nature can cause calamities as well . A river flows always and floods sometimes. A bridge or dam constructed to prevent floods is not "artificial' Even if so artificial interference is needed.
Entire Allopathy deals with nature`s disasters not remedies.

Yes. The drug derivatives you have mentioned are listed in Papavaceae family ~ and also include chelindonium [good liver remedy], sanguinaria [known for migraines], Succinum acid [it is listed and comes from amber. I am not sure why it is here?], opium, codeine and corydalis formosa [fumariaceae]

The passive or active reaction are ways of reacting to the shock. One can become numb and not feel, so as to become 'deadened' to the pain or on the other side there can be great violence. Imagine eating something with hot peppers. You are probably very used to eating 'hot' and 'spicy' foods. Your taste buds have probably been less activated to what would normally cause a severe reaction. On the other side, when there is great pain we might want to scream and throw a fit or to strike back to eliminate this pain.

Again you can see the similarities of 'blockage' in the opium drug derivative of the poppy plant. We think of bowel constriction and non-movement, constipation, blockage. It has the same qualities of what you described as blockage of the heart, where part of the heart was "deadened." Loss of reactivity versus over-reactivity.

I hope this is helpful.

Thank you . Sankaran`s Schema is my next home work . Papavaracea is the botanical name of plants supplying Opioid drugs like Opium , Morphine , Demerol and Codein. They effectively relieve pain . They are administered to all cases of severe pain including severe chest pain and shock of a heart attack. But I will be happy to be informed why reactions differ Active and Passive
Comment by Debby Bruck on October 16, 2009 at 10:33am
There is a page in Sankaran's Schema which is all about 'Shock' in the Differentiation of Plant Families. The Common Sensation is SHOCK. The listings are Compositae, Loganiacea, Magnolianae, Papavaraceae and Umbelliferae.

Compositae: Shock from being injured and insulted.
Passive Reaction: Numbness
Active Reaction: Striking, hitting back

Loganiaceae: Shock of being let down and disappointed
Passive Reaction: Paralyzed, silent, grief
Active Reaction: Excitable, convulsions

Magnolianae: Shock from something which is bewildering, confusing, weird and strange

Passive Reaction: Blankness
Active Reaction: Rage and violence

Papavaracea: Shock of fright from pain and suffering
Passive Reaction: Anesthesia; painlessness
Active Reaction: Rage and violence

Umbelliferae: Shock from the effect of sudden and unexpected attack
Passive Reaction: Stupefaction, dullness
Active Reaction: Violence, attacks, convulsions

So, here we have plants that can counteract the types of Shocks experienced. We are not exactly giving the electric shock back via the exact same method as it was obtained. The plants are stimulating the 'similar' shock that the plant may experience in some way. We understand that plants are very 'sensitive' to their environment.

Sensation "as if caged"
Your first demonstration was 'cactus' and does not fall under the 'shock' category under this schema. It rather has the sensation of "tight, stiff, unable to move' as in the sensation "Whole body feels as if caged, each wire being twisted tighter and tighter." [Allen's Keynotes] And now what comes to mind in that the heart is encaged within the ribs of the body, just as the cactus plant has ribs.

Shock is both a cause and cure .
Comment by I.J.SWAMY on October 16, 2009 at 8:05am
There are other modes of shock as well. A person receives sudden frightening sad news ,another person unexpectedly receives a hard slap from someone ,a bridegroom is informed the bride succumbed to an accident on the way to church and a business man realises stocks crashed irrecoverably. A sudden shock of all these types releases "neuro hormones" in the brain and in glands controlled by the brain. These hormones mostly Adrenalin , Noradrenalin ,Serotonin,Acetylcholine etc in different doses released into blood affect target organs differently.Skin sweats , muscles contract, stomach contracts and person vomits,bladder and rectum lose control and and person eases involuntarily. Blood pressure lowers because blood vessels lose their tone. ECT shock directly stimulates brain`s neuro hormones and the brain sends repeated very frequent impulses to all parts of the brain. Asynchronous brain impulses suddenly cumulatively become synchronous.
In case of heart attack death occurs because of incoordinated contractions of all the four chambers of the heart in such a way each chamber contracts and blood is blocked in heart without circulation causing death . Death relaxes the entire heart and a shock helps chambers to contract and relax rhythmically. This may not happen always . So defibrillator is not a 100%cure for a dead heart.
ECT also delivers shock directly to brain and sudden shock somehow brings backthe regulated flow of neuro hormones . This offers a cure of depression , Schizophrenia etc.
Electrophysiology of the heart and brain are superspecialities and I did my best to clear the doubts.
Now a days drugs effecting the hormones have almost replaced ECT.

Electroconvulsive Treatment (ECT)


In 1938, electroconvulsive treatment became known after Ugo Cerletti, an Italian psychiatrist, thought that because pigs were shocked into unconsciousness to make it easier for them to be slaughtered, that this would mirror similarly when it came to treating those who were mentally ill. Many believe that the electroconvulsive treatment works because it allows the brain to reroute itself. ECT is most often used as a treatment for severe major depression which has not responded to other treatment, and is also used in the treatment of mania (often in bipolar disorder), catatonia and schizophrenia. In the past, it was proven to be somewhat effective, and was used for many years. As of 2007, this type of treatment is no longer regulated officially within the U.S. Today, the treatment is still used worldwide, but it is seen as a last resort treatment.

How can you connect these two modes of shock treatment? One to the heart, the other to the brain.

Dr. Bruck while I do more home work will you please request all your friends for a feedback ? Thank you
Comment by I.J.SWAMY on October 15, 2009 at 3:33am
Thank you. You made me think. The answer to each issue you you raised needs a discussion that should be long . As promised I am coming with the topic of Miasms. I mostly use Cactus to chronic cases after heart attack among males above 50 . Ailment and its treatment are similar not the same . In due course I`ll elaborate . Thanks again

Dear Swamy ~ Please help me understand your definition of the principle "Similibia similus curenteur" ?

First is the name of a condition: Heart Attack
Then a remedy is given without symptom details: Cactus

Do we not have to define what happened first and then find a remedy that matches the symptoms?

Then statement: Cactus may or may not help. Is the Allopathy Hospital in their to throw us off track?

Now we are speaking of Life and Death issues.
This, I assume, follows from the initial condition of heart attack.

Here you describe the general explanation of how the body works and one reason for a heart attack. Are there more than one? Do we know? Can someone have a heart attack from Winning the Lottery of a Million Dollars? Is this a surprise? A shock? Too much for his heart to handle?

Now we see a smoker. How is he related to the discussion? Another factor that lowers the function of the heart and nervous impulses?

We have brought in the element of electricity. Certainly, that 'surprise' of winning a million dollars could be quite a 'shock' to the system.

Okay. Back to allopathy and the use of defibrillator to apply a 'similar' revival application, but via an external force.

I see that the heart 'died' or a part of the heart 'died' and now was revived back to beating in regular rhythm from the reapplication of shock. Very nice demonstration.

The last statement is telling us not to look for chest pain and sweating? Help me with that one.
