I actually love to draw. But the drawing I’m going to recommend that you do is not artistic; it’s instructive. And it can be immensely revealing.
It’s time to draw a lifeline for anyone in your family who has a chronic condition.
Why take the time to do this?
Because without this perspective, it’s nearly impossible to draw intelligent conclusions as to why someone suffers from this or that.
But before we begin, allow me to present a gob-smacking law regarding human health.
It comes from The Organon, by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, Father of Homeopathy.
* “The old school” means allopathic or conventional medicine.
What Dr. Hahnemann means is that anytime we have a lurking family history or latent illness, a sleeping giant if you will, it can be awakened to cause an illness of greater suffering once the symptoms of the lesser illness are suppressed artificially.
And the way this happens is so simple, so fundamental, that it flies in the face of modern thinking; hence, it eludes us.
What Dr. Hahnemann established distills to this:
Stay away from suppressive drugs and procedures. They propel a more serious illness that lies in wait in the background.
For example, if you give an antibiotic for a throat infection, more frequent and sobering infections will likely appear in the future.
(A show of hands of those who have seen repeated otitis media in their children after antibiotics.)
If there is something in the family history that would prompt a skin ailment, and this antibiotic is given, the child is likely to get another throat infection PLUS a skin affliction, such as eczema. Remember, eczema is chronic. That means years of suffering.
This happens because the sleeping giant, the latent or “internal malady,” has been awakened.
If not the first time, perhaps the second or third, but it’s bound to come about because it is a law of nature.
You can’t toy with biological laws by using synthetic measures to remove the outward expression of the illness.
But then there are the surgical procedures, too.
If the tonsils are surgically removed, the doctor will declare, “See? No more sore throats.”
But now the child is prone to chest colds, bronchitis, asthma or other lung ailments sooner or later; sometimes months, sometimes years, even decades later.
As Dr. Mendelsohn, a great pediatrician, once said, “The only mistake God made regarding tonsils is that He placed them too close to the surgeon’s knife.”
Those puffy tonsils are lymphs intended to protect from infection; hence, they serve a key purpose.
Not unlike sentry guards, they defend the more vital organs (lungs) from becoming contaminated. When infected, tonsils ought to be treated properly. Certainly not cut out.
So, how does one treat tonsils and strep throat correctly?
Here it is; the ultimate treatment for:
Strep Throat and Infected Tonsils
- Hepar sulphuris calcareum 200C , twice daily until better Or, if there’s a bad taste or sores in the mouth and if saliva is copious…
- Mercurious cyn 200, twice daily. If pain is severe, add Belladonna 6 or 3.
Back to the Timeline
Below is a timeline I drew of a child whose mom is a student of mine.
The number of vaccines are not indicated. In reality, there were at least 10 within weeks of birth, but the drawing of the needle is a good enough representation, indicating many.
Take a moment to study what occurred in this child’s life. One drug followed by another, then another malady met with another, and another. It reads like a book.
How to Construct Your Lifeline
Step #1: Construct a nice long line of events from birth, and perhaps even before that period, if anything significant occurred prenatally.
Hint: Use a pencil, because you will erase many times as you lay it out and indicate every “hit” to the system.
This includes illnesses and the corresponding allopathic medications used to treat them. Don’t forget medical tests, surgical procedures, vaccinations, x-rays, MRIs, colonoscopies, mammograms, dental appointments with fillings or plastic coatings and anesthesia.
Include significant emotional events such as losses of loved ones, significant humiliations, and life changes.
When the process is complete, stand back and look at what life has dealt and the number of drugs and procedures undergone.
It can be surprising.
Most folks tell me they don’t approve of nor use drugs, yet when they put a timeline to task, they realize they have made many exceptions.
A lifetime of them.
They are shocked by the number of drugs and procedures they or their child have undergone.
Not to worry. This isn’t about recrimination. It’s about righting the wrongs, and this is the first step.
Step #2: Now go online and look up every medication taken and its side effects. The way to do this is to go to the site of the drug manufacturer and read.
I mean READ. It may take until you get to page 24, but you’ll likely find the evidence you need to determine the source of the presenting symptoms.
Highlight all the symptoms you’re presently experiencing. Also highlight those that represent the symptoms you’ve experienced over the years as well.
Make these pages an attachment to your timeline.
Erroneously, most people believe that side effects are eradicated within days of withdrawal from a drug. Not true.
I work with folks who have reacted to a drug, even non-addictive ones, who have never been the same after its use, even decades later.
Additionally, according to Dr. Hahnemann’s aphorism, side effects are not the essential issue. What matters most is that the illness is driven to a deeper, more sobering pathology; to the latent, internal malady that is waiting to be brought to the surface via the removal of the outward symptoms.
Why Is Your Timeline Valuable?
This little exercise is worth the effort because it takes us from the overall question of “Why am I so sick?” to “Now I see why I’ve not been well.”
This process will hopefully elucidate how important it is to think twice when offered medicaments.
This, my friends, is why it is key, paramount, compulsory, that all families know how to treat small ills so that drugs can be avoided for the simple headaches, strep throats, ear infections, mastitis, UTIs, injuries, acne, etc.
I spend countless hours writing blogs and articles, interviewing on radio and TV, speaking at conferences, and recording podcasts to get the message across that we must engage in learning how to treat ourselves.
I could name financial, political and moral reasons as well, but the most compelling reason is revealed once you discover the importance of learning how to become the healer in your home.
Get your life in alignment. Get out your pencil. Stir your memory.
Then replace drugs with homeopathic medicines and its intelligent philosophy.
If I’ve stirred your desire to be the healer for your loved ones, even your community, one way to get started is to take a course. Click here to watch, read and learn.
