Creating Waves of Awareness

Fishbone Stuck In Throat
A boy in his teens, our neighbor and relative, got a fish bone stuck in his throat while enjoying a meal of fish and rice. He was brought to me at about five in the evening in much distress.

The fish bone seemed to have been lodged deeper in the throat near the opening of esophagus. The remedial measure of swallowing a mouthful of flat bread without much chewing had been tried albeit unsuccessfully.


I remembered a similar case some years ago, when a girl of about same age had the same trouble. At that time a single dose of SILICIA 12X had worked wonders and the fish bone was dislodged after four hours.


This time I gave SILICA 200C, four globules the size of poppy seeds, dry on the tongue. The advise given was to rest and try to sleep and wait.


Nothing happened in three hours. The same situation after five hours. I started to think, "Perhaps I should have given the remedy in 12X." As I had to go out for two hours, I left 3 tablets if SILICIA 12X with instructions to take the dose; if the first dose does not work after a further wait of one hour.

When I returned, the good news awaited that the fish bone had dislodged after six hours and the boy was able to extract it with his fingers as it was a big piece. There was some minor bleeding at the time of removal. I gave the boy a dose of Arnica to take care of bruising of the tissues.


The second dose was not needed at all.

The questions remains: Would the 12X potency if given instead of 200th acted more quickly?

THE CERTAIN FACT: If the remedy is right it will act in low as well as high.

silicea in low hastens the suppuration and in high aborts the suppuration, different potencies work differently...as far as my understanding.

We can say that12x is the best potency for the expulsion of foreign matter from the body. What is the experience of Hahnemann about potency selection? Can organon expert tell us?.
Suppose a person is suffering from heart attack and we are not sure about the potency selection and the patient dies then who is responsible?---doctor or Homeopathy?
Regards.

A person suffering from th same problem was rushed to the hospital.The surgeon removed the fish bone within minutes and earned rupees 40,000/ --a homeopath doing the same thing cannot.

I agree with Homeopathic Teacher Dr. Sajjad Akram. It varies from case to case and situation whether you need to rush the patient to hospital or you have a chance to apply for remedy or try yourself when you don't have proper instrument available. Its all depend upon the location, situation and condition.

Once upon a time, a triangle type bone of chicken was struck off in the throat of a person. All of a sudden hic cough was started. I was called in hurry. I said open your mouth. I saw the bone and bleeding. I asked him just calm and quite and try to avoid cough. I used a forcep and slightly evacuate the bone like this one. But I admit it was easy job and embedded of bone was closed.

Thanks for your comments. 12x worked, 200 also worked The questions remains. What would have been the best potency? 6x, 12x, 6C, 30C, 200, 1M or an LM.
One hint is available; When ther are strong mentals, one goes for high, on purely pathological symptoms low potencies work better.
I think if I get a similar case in future I will use the 12X.

Use whatever you like but do consider physical management also if possible -;)
