I’ve been doing some research this week on a particular remedy and I came across the following story. It was too good not to share:
An elderly man was seeking help for the early stages of an abscess at the base of his thumb. As an aside, he was also scheduled for surgery for a cyst of long standing on his back. The surgeon wished to postpone his surgery until his abscess was resolved, merely as a precautionary measure.
In order to hasten the abscess along on it’s healing path, the elderly man was prescribed a remedy fondly as the ‘homeopathic surgeon’. He took this remedy three times, once at the homeopath’s office and once that evening.
The next morning, as he was leaning over the bathroom sink to clean his teeth, he heard an explosive sound behind him. Turning around, he saw a large quantity of blood and pus discharged against the bathroom wall!!
The homeopathic remedy had indeed ripened the cyst as well as his abscess and his body ejected it without further ado!
