This is a summary of my Heilkunst (sequential homeopathy) update from mid-Feb to late March 2017 (6 weeks). Read more about our Heilkunst journey here.
On February 18, 2017, I started the following droppers:
1) Paraf. 30C – (Physical – Digestion/Allergies/Itchiness/Rashes/Neck and shoulder pain/TMJ) – a drop a day
2) Slag. 200C – (Emotions – Stress/Anxiety/Fears/Loss/Regrets) – a drop a day
3) Verbena h. 1M – (Mentals – Socialization/Career/Worries about AJ and upcoming procedure) – a drop a day
4) Anxiety – Eupat. perf. 30C – as needed.
Carya 9C/12C/30C/200C/1M/10M – to help clear the physical effects of a recent procedure.
It’s now 3 days after I started my new droppers and I’m feeling sad about my upcoming procedure. I was actually feeling strong and empowered over the weekend, but now, I’m not. Allowing the emotions to flow and be what they are. I’m also worried about AJ because he has 3 abscesses, including one under his eye, which looks sore and we haven’t been able to firm a surgery appt yet. And, I’m busy at work, working in the evening tomorrow night and 13 hours on Thursday and then I have a minor procedure scheduled on Friday. Eep. I need to remember to breathe.
I had a minor surgical procedure on Friday, Feb 24th. I took one timeline wafer the evening before the procedure (Arnica 30C). It was an emotional day. I’m currently taking timeline wafers (Carya 9C/12C/30C/200C/1M/10M) to help clear the physical effects of the procedure and all of the drugs that I took during the procedure [Naproxen for pain; Azithomycin (antibiotic), fentanyl and midazolam for sedation, and xylocaine]. For someone who basically never takes pharmaceutical medications, this was a lot for my system. I was tired and nauseous and weepy after my procedure.
March 1, 2017 was an intense day for me. I left the house at 5:30 am for an out of town meeting at 8:00 am. Returned back to the city and spent a couple of hours with AJ, who was at the Children’s hospital, recovering post-surgery from an incision and drainage of 2 abscesses and receiving an IVIG infusion (you can read more about that here). And then I left the city at 4:00 pm to make yet another out of town meeting at 6:00 pm and made it back home at 10:30 pm. Full on day. I took my last wafer clearing my own surgical procedure from the last week.
March 11th was a Saturday and it felt like a rest day. Possibly our first real day of rest in 6 months since our move to Calgary in Sept 2016. It has been a crazy 6 months of transitions. Two moves. New jobs for DH and me, and a complete change of field for me. Two new schools for AJ. New physicians for AJ. New treatments. New medications. So, so, so many hospital visits. So much joy and change and also so much heartache and tears. Life certainly is brutiful (beautiful and brutal).
I had a good week at work. No out of town travel, only one early morning and no evening sessions. I was able to start getting caught up on office work, which felt good. It felt like AJ’s health was stabilizing for the first time in 6 months. It felt like perhaps the worst was over. I was breathing in and breathing out. I had plans to see some nurturing friends.
As I mentioned above, life is starting to stabilize for us. Typically, AJ requires surgical drainage every 3-4 weeks. Today (March 29th) is 4 weeks from his last drainage and he is currently abscess-free. Yay! It feels like his current treatment is working (monthly IVIG, new antibiotic) and of course, Heilkunst is healing him on a deep level.
I have also had a rest period at work since we haven’t had any out-of-town, early morning or evening sessions scheduled in the last two weeks, so I’ve been able to breathe and get caught up. I’ve been having energy to move, practice yoga and go for walks in the evening. I have had time to start reading again. My sacral chakra has been awakening as well. It feels like I have had time to feed myself physically and emotionally and start enjoying life!
I am quite delighted by how things have been going. May this be just the beginning.
