First Aid Kit for Summer Fun!

With all the talk of Summer coming on; Bugs, Sunburns and Injuries, I am asked…What do you suggest that I carry in a First Aid Kit, Sue?

I must laugh because my husband always used to say, “Can we just get going?”
Of course, he was referring to the fact that the kids were all ready and getting antsy, to go on our hike or bike ride or were already loaded in the boat while I was still scrambling, trying to make sure that my first aid kit was complete… finding of course, that it wasn’t, because someone had used the last bandage or taken the last of the Phenocane…….

Every Mother’s scenario, right?

So, why don’t we have list in the lid of our little bag that states that the last person using this bag MUST check off that which he has used?

And What are the most important items to be carried for any possible injury or illness when out and about?

Really, this is the ultimate question!

My kids still laugh and talk about how I was always prepared. There was rarely a time when I didn’t have something that couldn’t be improvised to help in a particular emergency or in an injury situation.

In my experience, you want to pack items that can be used for multiple scenarios.
I’ve listed a few of my favorite items.
The problem is expense; all of my suggested items, gathered together for what I call a pretty complete little first aid kit will cost over $100.00. Of course, it’s worth it to have this very mobile kit on hand for family adventures.

There are a few homeopathic remedies or combinations for emergency situations,
that you shouldn’t leave home without.

Tissue Sprain -Homeopathic Special Order Combo Remedy – For Trauma, bruising, cuts, scapes, inflammation, poison ivy, etc. (Arnica, Hypericum, Bryonia, Rhus-t., Ruta, Symphytum)
This remedy is great to have on hand for acute situations.

Bug Bite -Homeopathic Special Order Combo Remedy – For Bites & Stings, puncture wounds. (Apis, Vespa, Ledum) This remedy is great to have on hand for acute situations.

Aconite 200c – Homeopathic Remedy – Shock, Exposure, Fright.

Apis 200c – Homeopathic Special Order Remedy – High Potency to address possible Anaphylactic Shock or Sunburn.

Arsenicum – For any situation that toxic poisoning may have taken place, for actual poisoning or when someone “feels” that they’ve been exposed to something they shouldn’t have been exposed to.

Belladonna 30c – In the event of possible viral exposure or illness/fever, that comes on quickly.

Carbo veg. 30c – A wonderful remedy when the lack of oxygen or lack of reaction in the patient is prominent.

Nux Vomica 30c – The “Too Much” remedy. Literally too much of anything, food, drink, play, etc.

Senna 6c – Homeopathic Special Order Remedy – Constipation, esp. while traveling.

Poison Ivy Soap – After hiking in the woods, this soap may help neutralize recent exposure to Poison Ivy/oak., Or help with effects of poison ivy/oak outbreak.

Poison Ivy Cream – May aid in ridding the effects of poison ivy/oak.

All Natural Bug spray – Any All Natural Bug spray should be carried for times that bugs are encountered. Many homemade concoctions are very efficient. Honest brand is also very good.

Lavender Essential Oil – for use internally or externally to cleanse wounds or injuries; can be used directly on ulcers, teething gums, rashes, canker sores, etc. one or two drops directly to area, works to numb and kill bacteria efficiently; without suppressing symptoms or homeopathic treatment.

Aloe Vera / Blend – is a favorite for persons with severe sunburn. I love the Oremus cream for injuries and minor sunburn, but I also have seen the miracles of Aloe Vera gel. Very often I add Calendula and Hypericum tincture and Lavender Essential Oil to the Aloe for a perfect blend of Healing Miracle! This blend smeared gently over the sunburned area brings instant pain relief and often brings complete healing by morning. A 4 oz. bottle can treat two persons quite efficiently.

Oremus Orignial Dry / Injured Skin Cream – a wonderful Essential Oil based cream for possibly relieving issues due to dry skin, injury, sunburn, etc.

Ankle Wrap – an important item to have in any kit. Great for wrapping ankles or joints; Sprains, strains, wounds that need a bandage to stay in place; or can be unwound to be used as a sling or tie.

Bandages –For injuries or wounds; 4×4 gauze

Charcoal Capsules – super to have on hand if bad water or food has been consumed. Charcoal swallowed with water, will pull toxins from the system and pull them safely from the body, expelling them through natural means.

Phenocane Anti-Inflammatory Capsules – The only anti-inflammatory that I ever recommend… Very often the pain is so intense that the body may have trouble beginning the healing process; that is one of the reasons I recommend Phenocane. It starts the anti-inflammatory process so efficiently that the body can then read the homeopathic remedy to begin healing. (The wonderful world of natural medicine! I Love it!)
* I tell folks that if this doesn’t work; the issue isn’t inflammation


Scissors, nail clipper, jack-knife or all three – A good Jack knife is key for survival. Explanation to lengthy for this space!

Wet Ones – Ha! One of the best inventions Ever! Can be used to clean wounds, wash the body when no clean water is available, to clean wounds when needed or even as emergency Toilet paper!

Zip ties – these take up literally no room in your first aid kit…3 or 4 should be carried.

And One of My Favorites! Boy Scout Trick #1 _ Shoe Goo….can literally be used to fix your shoes, mend the tent, and can be used as fuel to start a fire, even in the pouring rain! (just squeeze 1-2 inches out onto a twig and light for an even, steady burn which easily ignites wet wood)

*For a more extended hike, the Life Straw should be added. (this is a charcoal filter unit that can filter stream or lake water through a straw for emergency drinking water.

*Food- Non-disintegrating food, such as nuts or other dried food, that doesn’t take up bulk space, for emergency situations.

There are so many more suggestions that can be added to your families’ first aid kit.
But I’ve found that if you have the above items, you can pretty much tackle any small emergency.

Wishing you and your family a fun, safe, and healthy summer!

May God Bless You and Yours,
Sue Meyer

What is CEASE “Complete Elimination of Autistic Spectrum Expression”

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to take the case of an Asperger’s child. This child was special to say the least! His brilliance was astounding and his level of knowledge in mechanics and physics was unparalleled for his age.

I was very thankful for having had this experience and really felt that because of it, I was given a glimpse to the complexity of man; only in the sense that there is so much to the human mind that is yet untouched or understood in modern society.

Many health professionals feel that Asperger’s is a genetic pre-disposition that inclines the child toward a higher than average intellect. (Genius in many cases) This extraordinary intellect however may be coupled with a tendency to impaired social skills and/or restrictive or repetitive patterns of interest and activities.

It was the belief of Tinnus Smits M.D. a Dutch doctor working with Autism patients who felt that the genetic pre-disposition of Asperger’s could easily be pushed into a full Autistic state if the child were to be vaccinated or exposed to a particular toxin.

Dr. Smits worked diligently to unmask the mystery of Autism. He was able to link the disease to causative factors coupled with the disposition of the child and then began to cure the disease in many. Dr. Tinnus Smits passed away in 2010.

Today, his research has continued with the help and dedication of wonderful Homeopaths Like Kim Kalina CCH, RSHom (NA), currently of Denmark and is the Core Instructor of the North American CEASE Certification courses, and teaches both initial certification and advanced CEASE courses all over the world. She is a nationally certified and registered homeopath through CHC and NASH, and has been a homeopathic practitioner for nearly 20 years. She began studying with Tinus Smits in 2005 and has been using and promoting his work at his request ever since. In particular, Kim has facilitated and taught his vaccination clearing protocols since 2005, Inspiring Homeopathy initiations internationally since 2007, and also served as editor (along with Tim Owens) of the final version of Dr. Smits’ Inspiring Homeopathy book in 2011.

I am honored that I was able to attend the CEASE Certification Course in Minneapolis, MN, this past month. Kim Kalina is an astounding homeopath and a truly gifted teacher. Her knowledge of Autism and other drug induced diseases in admirable to even the most educated and my only regret is that I am only now discovering the full program.

CEASE is a highly effective way to address many stubborn chronic complaints that fail to resolve with constitutional homeopathy. Only too often in chronic situations, there can be a setback in the healing process and what seems to be the perfect remedy fails to hold, or to completely cure. These are often cases where an obstacle to cure is present. Now, with the work of Dr. Smits being perfected and taught around the world; this CEASE Program is being used successfully in autism, ADD/ADHD, depression, arthritis and more.

CEASE is a combination format used to aid the body in healing itself; this method is highly effective. Upon assessment of a case it is determined how to precede in aiding the body to rid itself of the aggravating factors, and then the three step program is applied.

1. Isopathic remedies are given to aid the body in detoxifying the causative factor of disease.
2. Orthomolecular supplements are given to support the body’s cellular systems during detoxifying process.
3. Homeopathic constitutional remedy is used to strengthen the body at all levels for a balanced and complete healing.

I am so excited to have this knowledge for use in case work. I can see how CEASE will work to restore the health of many.
I am also thrilled that Kim has orchestrated an elaborate network of dedicated professionals to be available literally around the clock if needed for help or to answer simple questions.

I am so very Thankful to Kim and to all who are working to bring this amazing knowledge to light.

CEASE is knowledge that everyone should understand…if only that they should understand why it is needed.

May God Bless You and Yours,
Sue Meyer

Nourishing Your Skin Naturally

Your skin is the largest organ that you have, covering your entire body, nearly 2 square yards of surface! Your Skin accounts for approximately 16 percent of your body weight.

And yet we nearly ignore the care of our Skin; we always seem to forget that our skin is an organ that works to protect EVERYTHING on the inside. We also forget to nourish and cleanse our skin like we should.

The best way to cleanse the skin is by sweating. If we aren’t sweating, we aren’t able to cleanse the toxins and filth from the pores of the skin. Sure, bathing is extremely important and a very good way to flush filth and toxins from the surface of the skin, but it isn’t a very efficient way to cleanse the pores deeply; especially if we are only showering rather than bathing. Saunas are an awesome way to cleanse deeply the entire surface of the body because saunas promotes whole body sweats. Many people think that swimming is good, and it is, if and only if, the water is not chlorinated, Fluorinated or toxic by some other unnatural chemical.

The funny thing about skin is; it’s not very smart.

When I was studying under PANNA (Pesticide Awareness North America) about the effects of Pesticides and Toxins on our skin and in our bodies, I was really quite shocked when the Bio-Chemist said to me, “Sue, whenever our skin is exposed to an un-natural element…it doesn’t know what to do.” He explained the skin will absorb any element that it doesn’t recognize and it can take up to 20 minutes for the body to realize that it just absorbed a toxin….so at that point it will rally its’ systems to try to get rid of this toxin and by the time it does, it can be too late. Toxic Poisoning can already have taken place and the body may or may not be able to rid itself of the ill effects.

He further explained that the Skin when exposed to a pure unaltered product, (in its natural state, not modified, or hydrogenated etc.; in other words, the way that God made it!)  recognizes the product, and then can “decide” if it would like to absorb it or not.

That’s why two people can put on their skin the same natural lotion, or even a few drops of Lugol’s Iodine and one person will absorb the product quickly and the second may not seem to absorb anything…why?

Because when the body is exposed to a natural product, it will “decide” if it needs this nourishment, and if yes, it absorbs; if not, it will not absorb! What? Too Cool! Right?

So, Toxins can trick the body by being unrecognizable and then poison the body; and natural products actually nourish if needed.

This is why we carry only “safe” skin products in our store. Our very favorite being the Orémus  products. The Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and Creams are made from Organic and natural ingredients, making them safe for our families, from babies to adults.

Another thing to understand is that all of the Orémus  products are safe to use with homeopathy. They contain no mint or camphorated essential oils. We are very pleased to have these products in our own lives and just as pleased to be able to offer them to others as well.

May God Bless You and Yours,

Homeopathic Help for Allergies

With Allergy Season coming up, I thought it might be a good idea to review just a little bit about this situation.

If you stop and think about what allergies really are, then this can help parents or care givers to make critical decisions ahead of time.

Allergies are any situation that causes the body to throw off abnormal symptoms. Whether chronic or acute.

Acute allergic reactions can be anything from a simple swelling due to a bug bite or stings, to severe anaphylactic shock; it can be in the form of hives or other skin rash due to exposure of an element that the body perceives to be toxic; Allergies can cause the body to throw off symptoms like sneezing, running or mucus nasal issue, eye issues, coughing, itching, burning, swelling…the list goes on. Allergies can be caused from exposure in the air, from a plant, from the water, from food, or even from something like a new topical cream, etc.

What we all need to understand is that if the body has an allergic reaction to something, then this is a defense mechanism…the body’s immune system cannot cope with the element that it has been exposed to, so it throws off drastic symptoms.

There are many reasons the immune system may not be handling this situation. It can be anything… from something the immune system has never encountered before, and is having a drastic reaction to; to the immune system being in a compromised condition. It can be run down, or in the process of fighting something else. Regardless of the why, if we understand that it is an immune situation, we are less likely to suppress the symptom because we understand that to suppress will only further weaken or damage the immune system and if we continue to do this, we run the risk of eventually damaging the precious Adrenal glands.

So…don’t suppress! Find a remedy that matches the symptoms of reaction.

You can listen to more about this situation in our Podcast for Allergy Help. And, if you have the Homeopathy for Mommies eBook, you can type in the symptoms and may easily be able to find a remedy that has these like symptoms to the allergy that you are trying to get a handle on.

For instance:

Apis-  An awesome remedy for bug bites and stings. It is a great remedy for anaphylactic shock, as it quickly triggers the body to reduce watery swelling and edema situation. When this remedy is needed the skin can be red and have a shiny look, but there is always watery swelling.

Arsenicum-  Will quickly trigger the body to throw off symptoms due to exposure of some element the body perceives as poisonous. IF she has been poisoned or even if she “thinks” she has been poisoned. These can be symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea or other burning sensation due to exposure of toxins or what the body may perceive as a toxin.

Allium cepa.- Symptoms that are like those of an extreme onion of exposure…eyes burning and nose watering for allergies or even for cold symptoms. When symptoms tend to corrode the nose and upper lip, and the eyes can also burn but have bland discharge.

Anacardium – This remedy is often used for poison ivy. Blister like eruptions. Skin is reddened at base of. Eyes and face may swell. Itching is aggravated by heat. Will often relieve when Rhus tox. fails. For Eczema and Psoriasis, there can be yellow vesicular weeping. Dermatitis. Skin inflammation in general.

Euphrasia- Also known as Eyebright. Any eye situations that water, or burn. eyelids, red and swollen.  Burning Sore throat. Cough with easy expectoration (during the day…Sleeps well at night. But unlike Allium cepa, here the eyes are acrid and corrode, the nose is bland discharge)

Clematis- This remedy is excellent for corroding eruption and eczema as well. This remedy is famous when eruptions are not only external but can even effect the mucus membranes. The eruptions can be red, burning, corrosive.

Cistus Can.- This remedy can really help to strengthen the immune system. There can be visible signs for it’s use; callosities with cracks, diseases of the nails, hard, thick skin, oozing after scratching. Lupus, small painful pimples, poisoned wounds that spread and ulcerate. The glands can be affected. Very often the patient will act as though they are suffering intensely.

Nat. Mur. – (sodium chloride)- the sodium in our body can easily be knocked out of balance during times of stress, fatigue, or illness; this can lead to symptoms of puffy swelling. Often used successfully for Hay Fever, Runny nose, alternating with nasal dryness.,

Rhus tox- A wonderful remedy for rash caused from things like Poison ivy or poison oak, for any itchy eruptions, shingles, and chicken pox as well. It should always be taken in low x potency when being used for a rash. And many take it in a higher c potency in the spring to help with poison ivy exposure in the spring and summer months.

There are many remedies that are wonderful for allergic reactions. Some sadly, are not in the book Homeopathy for Mommies, but can be requested on our website at the special remedy request button.

For Instance:  Petroleum, Kresotum; both excellent for Dry cracked skin especially at different times of year. Skin can appear dirty, rough, peeling; Psoriasis or eczema. Itching, sore, cracked, blistered.

Asarum for watering, burning eyes, plugged sensation, sensation as if the eyes would be pressed asunder. Accumulation of cold watery saliva in the mouth; vomiting with diarrhea, violent colic.

The list goes on to many more than I’ve listed here. But this is a really good list to begin with because these are very important remedies for acute allergic situations.

Beyond the Acute situation, there are also chronic allergic situations:

Chronic Allergic Reaction can be a symptom or group of symptoms that the person lives with all the time….or that chronically flare up at certain times of the year of periodically.

Chronic Allergies are not really the focus of this article, but needs to be addressed, because folks need to know that if your body is throwing off symptoms like eczema or other skin rashes, blepharitis, running nose, cracked, inflamed skin, sinusitis, etc., then your body is trying to tell you something. Don’t suppress these wonderful symptoms with drugs found in creams, inhalers, pills, etc. Make an appointment with a good homeopath to have a full case intake done. A good Homeopath can help you to get over chronic allergic issues so that your body can come back into balance. If someone was born with allergies, the homeopath can get to the bottom of this situation as well. Case taking will prove very efficient in this situation.

Allergies can be cured.

 

May God Bless You and Yours,

Methods in Homeopathy

Once upon a time, I literally vowed to myself that I would never write another letter. Writing can get one into so much trouble. Let it be written; Let it be done. You cannot take away that which has been etched in stone.

That’s why it is so hard for me to write these blogs. The podcast isn’t such a big deal, folks listen, retain up to 20% of what I’m yakking about, giggle a bit, learn one or two things that they may or may not ever use and then move on. They don’t dissect every little word and scrutinize each statement, they just listen and hopefully learn.


Why am I mentioning yet another of my weaknesses? Because we all have them. Some of us are more reluctant to admit it than others, but we are all imperfect.


And because people are imperfect; Nations, Politics, Curriculums, all things that are run and written up by people are imperfect. We are not God. We can be inspired, but the human factor tends to flavor our work.


There have been so many wonderful things accomplished by so many wonderfully clever people…. Dr. Samuel J. Hahnemann was one of those men.


What he began was based on the teachings of the Original Father of Medicine: Hippocrates; “Like Cures Like”. He took that which was already understood, and expounded upon it. He spent the last years of his life learning and teaching about homeopathy, based upon this “Like cures Like” theory. Because it made sense. He didn’t change it, he only amplified the info., and made it more understandable…but he was not perfect, he didn’t know, “everything.”


Homeopathic books are often based on provings, cases, and protocols that have worked for one doctor or another. If the book was written by one of the Original Great Homeopathic Doctors, I say that it is a great book. I say great because, these were written after much research and in depth proving. The information is worth your time to study. Rarely did the personality control the writing. Records were kept and recorded so that other doctors would be able to know what had already been studied, and what the results were. I consider these books worth holding on to.
In Today’s world of homeopathy, we are seeing so many “changes” that people keep asking me, what style or method of homeopathy do you think I should study?


Again, I am human. I make at least one or two mistakes a year. (Ok, I’m totally laughing here) But about homeopathy I have very strong opinions.
I am Classical. Remedies are proven one at a time, they simply cannot prove a combination remedy. I have used combination remedies, but when I do, I always explain that the body is reading only one remedy at a time.


And, I also tell folks that homeopathy hasn’t changed. What worked two hundred years ago, still works the same way today. However, there are many wonderful strides being made when it comes to the language.


The Cheat Sheet Charts, as I like to call them, is a style of coming to the correct remedy more efficiently. This was put together by Rajan Sankaran and Jan Scholten, and taught very efficiently by Rajan’s student Dinesh Chauan. It is known as the Sensation method, which is very deceiving because it is still Classical in every sense of the word.


I totally embraced this method because of my devotion and understanding of St. Benedict, who taught, “If you want to know a man, listen to him but for five minutes and he will give away his heart.”


In other words, we cannot help but give a good homeopath all the information necessary for him to be able to find the correct remedy. The human body intrinsically knows what it needs, and will literally “say” what it needs. This is not new. Homeopathy has always worked this way…but after nearly three hundred years, wise listeners have learned to connect the dots and align remedies with language.


There are other forms of prescribing homeopathic remedies. Like protocols. (a protocol is a set system of giving a remedy or series of remedies for a particular illness or complaint) I have come up with my own protocols for certain issues, and there are other protocols that doctors have come up with. These protocols are very often efficient especially for “Acute” illness or hereditary disease. I have not however, found them efficient for long term healing when the issue is of long-standing and there is a “never well since” (other than the flu) in the description. Protocols definitely have their place in the world of homeopathy, but there is no way that a protocol can address the patients trigger. (the trigger is the “human” factor that has allowed the disease state in the first place)


There are also recipes. I mention it here because you will find it stated as such in old books. It is the giving of two or more remedies in succession for an issue like a cough or fever.


At seminar, I met an amazing young homeopathic doctor from India, he said, “Sue, in India we are so busy, that when a mother comes in with a sick child, we discern the symptoms and give the remedy for that illness according to what the child’s body type is; we literally have pictures of four different babies on the wall. These show the main body types.”


So, you see, there is no right or wrong, there are just different ways to come the end. My main advice is to not consider the old classical form of prescribing passé. Learn as much as you can from as many sources as you can. I relish the new, but never discount that which is old, tried and true.

And realize that nothing in homeopathy is ever out…it is only ignored by modern thinkers.

Homeopathy is a wonderful world of true healing…the correct remedy will always trigger the body to begin healing; proper nutrition and lifestyle will aid this process; spiritual correctness will complete the process.


May God Bless You and Yours,

X-Rays…Dangerous or Not?

A friend emailed and asked what I thought of x-rays. Long story short, I’m no expert, but I do know that every x-ray has an effect upon the delicate workings of the body.

According to the Mayo Clinic; “The amount of radiation you’re exposed to during an X-ray depends on the tissue or organ being examined. Sensitivity to the radiation depends on your age, with children being more sensitive than adults. Generally, however, radiation exposure from an X-ray is low, and the benefit from these tests far outweigh the risks. However, if you’re pregnant or suspect that you may be pregnant, tell your doctor before having an X-ray. Though the risk of most diagnostic X-rays to an unborn baby is small, your doctor may consider another imaging test, such as ultrasound.”

So, in other words…even the Mayo Clinic, a highly-respected hospital, contradicts itself in trying to give their patients comfort that x-rays are not harmful.

Natural Medicine advocates say that you should never get x-rays because they are very dangerous.

But what is this danger? And how do you really know what you should allow for yourself or your children?

And if you “must” get an x-ray, what can you do to protect as far as possible?

According to Ener-Chi Wellness Centre; “No matter how important x-rays are medically, they have their side effects like any other form of radiation.

…exposure to these high-frequency waves… unless it is an absolute emergency, getting an x-ray done must be avoided as far as possible.

Some of its harmful effects:

  • Due to their relatively smaller physical size, children are more sensitive to the radiation as it could badly affect their genitals. Parents accompanying their children during x-ray check-ups should wear x-ray prevention clothes as a precaution.
  • Exposure to radiation as a fetus ups the chances of cancer by 40%, of developing tumour(s) by 50% and of leukemia by 70%.
  • Thyroid glands, which are the primary glands of metabolism and energy, are also known victims of x-rays. They are particularly sensitive to radiation because of which, excessive exposure to radiation can lead to various thyroid conditions. Asking for a thyroid collar when getting your head, neck or collarbone area x-rayed could be a preventive measure.
  • Reports say that when exposed to x-rays, especially in the lower abdominal region, a person is at the risk of developing genetic damage that could turn hereditary. They also link diseases like diabetes, high BP, coronary heart disease, strokes and cataracts with exposure to x-rays.”

Honestly, I know very little about x-rays. I do know that there are many factors that determine the long-term effects, all of which we could write another book. Even then, there would still be the question: What can I do if and when, I or my family needs an x-ray?

Well, I believe that we should all become more cautious. Don’t just let the dentist routinely do x-rays. This may upset the average dentist. But it is still your choice. You needn’t feel any duty to order undue tests for your family.

Also, mammograms seem to be a huge business, when in reality, they should be discontinued, (not only for the above reasons) but because the technology of the Thermograms literally makes a mammogram obsolete. Thermograms are revolutionary when it comes to detecting abnormalities in the body.

Don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor if he or she is suggesting a mammogram or x-rays. Most doctors really do care. X-rays have been the norm for so many years that it’s going to take the patients to change protocol. If you sincerely express your concerns to your doctor, even in an emergency, he will understand and even consider different tests if time and availability allows.

If, of course, there is an emergency and the need is real, and if  the technology doesn’t allow for a different way of looking at an issue…it would probably be wise to agree to the x-ray and then to be pro-active.

There are a handful of remedies that are often used in treating radiation exposure due to x-rays and other radiation exposure, depending on the situation or even symptoms that may follow x-rays and or exposure.

 You may take or give any of the following homeopathic remedies:

Most frequently used remedies are:

  • X-ray 200c, this remedy directly made from exposure to x-ray radiation, can be given before and again after x-rays to aid the body in alleviating harmful effects.
  • Cadmium sulph 200c (for exposure) can also be given before and again following an x-ray to aid the body in alleviating harmful effects. Or if there is much vomiting, [green, blood, mucus], stomach pains, weakness or exhaustion; desires small sips of water.
  • Radium bromatum.- can be used before and following, but is often used for the effects of x-ray especially when skin symptoms manifest; such as itching, burning, swelling or even ulcers.

Anytime there is a situation that calls for a deeper look at the goings-on of the body, please, take a small step back. Say an earnest prayer, and truly ask for guidance. Every decision that you make really does matter. Most of the time you have a choice. The clinic or hospital will not always tell or offer you that choice, so educate yourself. Know your choices. Knowledge is power; and Knowledge will give you the confidence to stand firm in your decision. 

You are given charge of your family…. God has appointed you.

 

May He Bless You and Yours,

The Winds of Change

When my oldest son was younger, I was his Den Mother, as he grew, and there was a need for a new “Boy Scout” leader, I became that role as well.  I loved working with the boys; and as it turned out, they were really teaching me.  I organized the meetings and gave directions as to what I expected them to learn for the next meeting, and guess what?  They would learn it so well that I would stand in amazement!  Then they would proceed to teach the teacher!  A good system.  Efficient, and fun as well!

I was a wonderfully successful Boy Scout leader, when all I really knew was how to read, follow directions and oh, yeah…I had a great love for my son, and the “desire” for him to learn how to survive in the wilderness and to have fun doing it!

The Boy Scouts used to be an awesome way for boys to become young men.  Today politics has changed that simple program; I won’t go into a lot of detail, but the point is, it’s changed.  Everything has changed…

I received a link this morning about an Amish man imprisoned for making a salve.  You can read the article here: Amish Farmer Sam Girod is in Jail…His Enemies Want Him There for Life.  Imprisoned…just for making a homemade salve and claiming it had some healing properties.  A salve that almost anyone could make in their own kitchen!

The following quote is from a 1955 book called: “Enemies are Human” by Reinhold Pabel.

“It was not until the late thirties that Hitler’s principal idea of the Thousand Year Reich became evident in all its monstrosity.  His first goal was to eliminate the undesirables…The Police State was born.  Schools, press, radio became coordinated.  Those who refused to cooperate were thrown into concentration camps…Intricate machinery was constructed which was designed to allow the Government to supervise every phase of private life so thoroughly that any attempt to protest could be nipped in the bud.  In spite of this, many people did not take everything lying down.  True: the majority of them just clenched their fists in their pockets and kept their mouths shut…..if they had been faced with the alternative of keeping quiet of losing their jobs, homes, or even their lives.…The concentration camps were filled not only with Jews, but also with many German nonconformists, victims of political and religious persecution…”

Boy Scouts and WWII?  This is a very thin thread but try to follow me please…

When I think about the Boy Scouts, I think about Survival.  The knowledge to survive with the barest of equipment.  The Boy Scouts of America have been undermined by political rhetoric.  Now an Amish man being arrested for his act of Treason? 

Where are we today; does this not ring the same bell as the quote from the 1955 book quoting pre-war Germany?

The point is, we are losing our rights quicker than we can even keep track.  I went to place an order the other day with a company that I have used for over 15 years.  This company has helped me learn so much about herbs and essential oils.  They have always had tons of information both on their website and given personally when I call.  To my shock and dismay, there is no longer ANY information outside the name of the Herbs of Oils listed on their website . Our favorite Government Organization has dis-allowed any “claims or unsubstantiated” claims. Going so far as to say even Historical data is now unsubstantiated. 

Homeopathic remedies are also under constant attack.  As I write this, another bill is before session to take the use of homeopathic remedies away from us, and to make them available by prescription only. 

I don’t have any answers.  But if I may suggest…Have no fear!  Fear is caused by lack of faith, or lack of knowledge.

Pray.  If you are inspiried, follow through.

Be prudent.  Arm yourself and your family with Knowledge.

Basic Boy Scout type training should be a given for every family.  It is the single best field First Aid training available to date.

Learn Homeopathy, and have the most basic remedies on hand.

 

May God bless you and yours,

Sue Meyer

 

My favorites to have on hand are:

Of course there are many other good reference books, but these are by far my personal favorites!

Is Homeopathy Safe During Pregnancy?

I am often asked if Homeopathy is safe to use during pregnancy.  Homeopathy is so safe, that I can honestly say that without it, I would have miscarried two times more than the four miscarriages that I had before I found homeopathy.

I have used homeopathy to aid many women in carrying a pregnancy to term, or to avoid a threatening miscarriage.

I can remember early miscarriages. One in particular… my first. The ultra-sound revealed that the baby was still alive. The doctor told me to go home and go to bed, he said that there was nothing that could be done…I was almost 10 weeks…after two horrific weeks of hemorrhage, another ultra sound revealed that my baby had died, and I needed a D&C. My baby had died several days before the final ultra-sound and my heart was broken, for what I thought would be forever.

I asked the nurses to baptize even though there wasn’t much left.  I cried literally night and day for about a week, when suddenly, I was given the grace to realize that if I could be good…I’d meet my baby someday. So I stopped crying and said a prayer of Thanksgiving for my little Angel.

God has a plan and He allows these events for a reason. Every loss shapes a mother’s heart. I felt such guilt when I lost this baby; I already had two tiny babies and found out that I was expecting, AGAIN! Oh, poor me, right? Well, I lost that gift. Then my prayer became a plea, that I would never again feel sorry for myself.

I don’t think that I ever did….by the grace of God of course.

Since then, I’ve used remedies to save two more of my own pregnancies, and helped moms going through much of the same situation, to stop the hemorrhage and carry their babies to term.  I Thank God that we have these little remedies on hand to at least do what we can; so, that we don’t feel helpless. And I’d say that a threatened miscarriage has at least a 50% chance of survival, if remedies can be used immediately at the time of the threat.

Not every pregnancy will be ok, but many more will be, than without it.

So Yes, I say…homeopathy is very safe during pregnancy.

Are there remedies to avoid?

The only homeopathic remedies that must be avoided are: Apis in any potency lower than a 30c…Why? Because it can work so well, that it may compromise a mother’s water. (Even this is a maybe…but Kent says, let’s not chance it)

Also, hormone remedies should be used only at the suggestion of a good homeopath. Not that they will really trigger the body in a wrong direction…but healing should be monitored by potency, and most people are not really versed in this well enough.

I encourage mommies to use any remedy in 30c potency that fits the symptoms that they are experiencing. This is a good rule to live by when pregnant.

Don’t avoid using homeopathy when pregnant. Because very often you can help to maintain your health and the health of your unborn child just by listening to your body when it sends a symptom for a needed remedy!

 

May God Bless You and Yours,

Sue Meyer

Mother in Law Bread Podcast & Recipe

New on the podcast – my recipe that I mentioned a few podcasts ago!  I’m naming it Mother-in-law bread since I wrote it down for my daughter-in-law.

Join Sue on the podcast for this heart-warming story by clicking here.

Find the recipe here:

Mother-in-Law Bread… You can do the math to decrease this batch. This recipe will make 8 to 10 loaves (depending on my mood!)

Some fun variations are: to add garlic and or dried chives to the bread dough when mixing for a touch of the Italian flavor. Also, kids love to make mini loaves or even to roll them into breadsticks. (when made into breadsticks, 15-20 minutes is usually sufficient baking time.)

Why Choose Homeopathic Immunizations For Your Family?

I have to giggle whenever someone asks me to tell “My Story” about my road to using only Homeopathy vs. Conventional Allopathic Medicine, and my non-use of vaccinations.

Why do I giggle? Because I’m happy! I’m so happy that God led our family away from the pharmaceutical world of drugs and the stream-line media based mentality;

…You know the mentality that if it weren’t for prescription drugs; humans would be nearly extinct!  Yeah, Right!

The truth is so far from that line of thinking! That, like I say, I seriously giggle every single time I think about how our Good Lord has lined up all of creation for our benefit.

Yes, disease and eventual death is our lot in life; has been since the fall, and will be until the end of time. All disease has been here since that moment and always will be. The only thing about disease that’s changed, are the names of these diseases. Bacteria, virus, and fungus’s are essentially the same.

So why the big mystery about disease? Because, there is no money in saying, “Hey we have a new drug to fight the same disease that your great, great grandfather cured with sarsaparilla, 90 years ago!” or “Quickly, come get vaccinated and inject your child with the added benefit of formaldehyde, so that he has this added toxin to his boring bloodstream!”

I am being so facetious right now, but I have touted the praises of homeopathic immunizations for over 20 yrs., and still, there are over 5 billion people who still seem to be in the dark that God, through Samuel Hahnemann has given us a way to protect our families from the basics of all the world’s major diseases, without harm or toxicity….AND this way is harmless and NON-toxic!

Homeopathic immunization is the most wonderfully easy way to build your child’s immunity to disease naturally, that most think it too easy!

So, we’ve put together a great course titled: Homeoprophylaxis: Homeopathic Immunizations and Treating World Diseases.

We talk about origin of disease, the difference between Vaccination and Immunization. We talk about the actual diseases, how to avoid disease or care for those who have disease and finally, how to protect your family.

With the help of some wonderful people, I really feel that this course is the culmination of my life’s trials as a mommy. The years of illness that I endured with my children, while I was still vaccinating my first eight, has given me a very personal insight to disease.

I can count no less than 5 times that my children were actually in the hospital with diseases that were not necessarily caused by vaccination, but were definitely the result of their vaccination due to hereditary weakness. I had at least two to three bottles of amoxicillin in my refrigerator at pretty much any given time of year. And I spent countless nights up with earaches, pneumonia, bronchitis, and my very favorite, strep throat.

Until a friend introduced homeopathy to me, I was a victim of society. Seriously! I look back now, and I realize that I truly was a victim. My capacity to think beyond what I had been taught was nonexistent, and only through a friend was I shown another way of caring for my family. I thank God every day, that I received the grace to embrace this truth.

I stopped vaccinating my children 21 yrs. ago.  The last three of our children have not been vaccinated, and not one of them have been to the doctor for illness, other than routine exam, or checkup. We have now been antibiotic free and totally pharmaceutical free, for that same 21 years!

My only regret, was that I had to learn so many hard lessons at the expense of my older children’s health. There are allergies and a couple other health issues that would never have been so, had I understood the simplicity of homeopathy when I was a new mother.

I Pray that God Bless You and Yours with a Lifetime of Health,

Because It’s so much easier to be happy and sing God’s Praise, when you feel Good!

 

With All My Heart’s Sincerity,

Sue Meyer

Life Experiences and Homeopathy – As Unique As You Are

Have you listened to the Latest Podcast on Asthma yet?  Here is a great preview!

Do you remember when you were a little kid playing hide-n-seek? Well I do. With two older brothers and three younger siblings, we played by the hour when Dad and Mom were gone…why then? Because we could go into the forbidden zones! The attic! Mom and Dad’s closet, under their bed, the far corners of the basement! We could move boxes, build forts, and pull moms best dresses down just far enough to hide our feet! These games were some of my best memories.

Of course, you knew this must have been going somewhere, right? I remember these moments because they were so scary! I can remember being so scared I could feel my heart beating so hard in my chest that I knew it would beat right through the front of my chest…and I knew for sure that anyone getting close to my hiding place could surely hear my heart as well! Oh, and forget about breathing. My breathing was as loud as a freight train, so I’d have to hold my breath when I thought anyone was even in the same room because I knew for sure I’d give myself away. I seriously knew that they could hear me breathing from across the room!

Really?

I know, these fears were my delusions, weren’t they?

Yes, I set my own stage, I made my own reality, I created my own fears. I did it then and I continue to do it today.

Of course, I am not nearly as exciting as I was 45 years ago, so my delusions are now on a much lower and boring scale, but I still have them. Everyone does. We had them as children, and we have them as adults.

Let’s talk about this.

Why can 10 people be in say; a 5 car pileup on the intersection of two busy roads and when questioned, no two of these people will tell the same story? Why is that? Because. Each one of these 10 people experienced something entirely different. They will tell to the best of their ability the actual event, but they will also pour into the story their experience of that event.

At the moment of the accident, each one of these 10 people were in their own little world, with their own little thoughts, maybe engaged in conversation, maybe listening to radio, maybe scared of being late for work, maybe anticipating a fun date, maybe excited about an upcoming meeting….it doesn’t matter. Whatever their thoughts or moods were at that exact moment…. that is what they took into the accident with them.

So, each person, sliding into the accident brought with them their own little stage; their props, their mind set, their fears… and so their perception will be totally different then even the guy sitting next to them.

This is why in homeopathy we say that ONLY the patient himself can tell you what he is experiencing….or what his experience was…. whether it be tragedy, illness, exposure, fright, or any other situation. Only that patient can give you the hints to his needed remedy. To his reality. To his sensation.

 

God bless you and yours,

Sue Meyer
