February 2016 – Heilkunst update

Leave a comment

This is a summary of Moses’ Heilkunst (sequential homeopathy) update in February 2016 over a 3 week period. Read more about our Heilkunst journey here.

On January 30, 2016, Moses started the following droppers.

1) Aviaire 12C – Physical – Abscesses/Rashes/Itchiness/Food Allergies/Thrush/Asthma/Ear fissures/Stomach aches/Dental work/Brain fog – a drop a day

2) Equis. 200C – Emotions – Pessimism/Anger/Stress – a drop a day

3) Jatr. u. 10M – Mentals – Depression/Feelings of victimization/Immaturity/Sleep/Night terrors – a drop a day

Within a couple of hours of starting his new droppers, Moses developed a huge abscess in an uncomfortable place and he had quite a bit of bumpiness under his right armpit (the latter had already been there prior to the droppers, but it seemed extra bumpy). Oh boy!

His Heilkunstler prescribed an acute dropper (Card. ben. 30C) – 2x per day, plus in water and could be sprayed on the abscesses. Great news – a couple of hours after starting the acute dropper, Moses’ abscess started draining on its own. Woot woot!

That same evening (on the day Moses started his new droppers), his incision site from his surgery two days before starting the droppers healed so fast that it caused him a lot of pain to remove the 2 foot long x 2 inch wick that they put into his armpit cavity (he was healing so fast that the incision site was starting to close up around the wick). We had to bring him to the ER at 11 pm, so a doctor could remove it. My poor boy – he wasn’t catching a break and it was awful. So much pain and tears and agony.

The next morning, after getting only 5 hours of sleep, he woke up at 6:15 am with the aforementioned abscess still draining. He went back to sleep for a couple of hours and then woke up so that he could play hockey (whereas, I was absolutely exhausted)! That boy is so tenacious and determined. He had a good afternoon, including a playdate with his best friend. Later that evening (likely because he was so tired), he was extra emotional about having had such a difficult past couple of weeks.  Who could blame him, but it was still heartbreaking to hear him say how he hates his life, how he has such a hard life and it’s not fair that he’s the only one that he knows that goes through what he goes through.

On February 3 (4 days after starting the new droppers), we started Moses on his new prophylactic antibiotic (Doxycycline). May it help reduce the occurrence of abscesses and be gentle on his system. He had a light night terror (i.e., he came out of it easily) later than evening and needed his Ventolin puffer.

We noticed that Moses was doing a great job with homework and in his reading. He was focused, working quickly and independently. Maybe all of the fog from last month finally cleared and we were getting to reap the benefits of last month’s clearing.

By February 6th, the drained abscess under his left armpit from last week was healing. He had 2 additional abscesses under his right armpit, but these seemed smaller than they were previously. He still had a large swollen lymph node that his surgeon said might need to be drained eventually, and he had another abscess that had been draining in a different location. He started to complain of stomach upsets, but he felt better after I rubbed a digestive essential oil blend on his belly.

On Wed, Feb 10th (11 days after starting his new droppers), he had an abscess drained under general anesthesia and the one on his neck was aspirated.  Goodness – this was his third minor surgery in less than one month. Typically, he needs general anaesthesia every 6 months (not 3 times in 4 weeks), so this is getting very tiring / draining / exhausting / demoralizing.

I had a karmic healing on Friday, Feb 12, which created a huge shift in me, and I hoped would have a beneficial effect on Moses as well (since we’re so interconnected). He had a light night terror a few days later.

Today is Feb, 19th, and thankfully, things have settled down for our family. Moses still has a swollen abscess / lymph node on the right side of his neck. Everything else has settled down. Thank goodness!  A sign that things are starting to settle down for us – Moses was able to go to his swimming class for the first time since Christmas break today.  I feel that all is well / all will be well. I’m feeling very optimistic.
