Stones - Spectrum of Homeopathy 03/2019
Mineral Complex Remedies
For thousands of year precious stones have fascinated people with their magical beauty. These glittery sparkling treasures are a symbol of eternity, riches and power.
From ancient times to the early modern era, many precious and gem stones were described, prepared by pharmacists and used for medicinal purposes. They are now available for daily homeopathic practice in the current issue of SPECTRUM. Peter Tumminello pioneered the precious stones remedies, presenting them homeopathically and encouraging colleagues from all over the world to conduct further research. In his latest book and in an exclusive overview for SPECTRUM he explains the clinical releavance of the seven crystal structures. His approach to the appreciation of these remedies is via a rational exploration of their mineral qualities. The path to understanding the remedies and selecting the best one is described in all its variety in this issue of SPECTRUM: from classical homeopathy, Sankaran’s sensation method and the periodic table according to Scholten through to psychoanalysis, the archetypes of folktales, natural healing and esotericism.
Anne Schadde researched the Tourmaline remedy family via provings, documented by clinical cases. Her newest cases, like those of Marion Zachmann and Wyka Feige, show how to make well-founded prescriptions to bring about healing with Tourmaline remedies such as Dravite, Indigolite or Chrome tourmaline. Jürgen Weiland works with the repertory and sensation method in his pediatric clinic and recommends Amethyst as a valuable remedy for developmental delay. Prominent and experienced internationally known homeopaths like Julie Geraghty, Wiet van Helmond, and Misha Norland present successful cases with precious and semi-precious stones such as Emerald, Black opal, “fool‘s gold” Pyrite, or the sulfuric energy of Lava, which brings the minerals from the center of the earth up to the light.
Many precious stones exert an individual magical attraction whereas others may generate strong dislike. The readers of this issue of SPECTRUM can find out for themselves.
