Scrofula: The first and most important point of the book for
me is that Scrofula is a Tubercular transformation (which I'd already
noticed in the dogs).Bacillinum remains a major Reiki draw most of the
year, with Psorinum taking up as winter comes along. Carcinosin is a
major draw as well, but not year round. Syphilinum transformed a
suffering, stunted puppy into a handsome tall guy once (but too tall,
which is scrofulous as one author explains), but Psorinum does that
transformation routinely and better. Medorrhinum I've never had success
with to date, though dogs draw it on and off especially those whose
kidneys are failing and are paraplegic - doesn't save them though.
second major point is that Scrofula is a product of the Lymphatic malfunction
(which I'd already realised:). The root cause is a digestive
malfunction - the body being unable to produce the right body elements - bile too thick or too acidic, etc.
Scrofulosis is that dyscrasia which always aims at the formation of purulent exudations.
scrofulous diathesis is a constitutional state favoring the development
of inflammations of all kinds. He may develop tuberculosis of the lungs
when construction favors it, and the eating and other habits develop
the necessary toxin poisoning.
Count Mattei had already articulated
in his electro homeopathic theory that the scrofulous and
lymphatic are the only two states for electro-homeopaths to cure.
Both Cancer and Tuberculosis are
alternate or developmental states of the same digestive malfunction.
Some anti-scrofulous picks are wonderful - he chooses Carbo
animalis over Carbo veg which is something I've noticed with Reiki too.
Clematis over other Ranunculae. Cicuta for the nervous system. I find
interesting connections to electro-homeopathy in Euphrasia, Dulcamara
and Teucrinum. The Baryta mur instead of the Carb is my pick too, and
Hepar out of all the Calcs. Aurum is another I love.
The remedies I
have trouble with are many as well. I haven't had much use for Silicea
which he swears by. Calc carb too, the dogs don't draw (except in cm,
which I'm afraid to give!).I haven't found Conium drawn at all, I would
put Hydrocotyle in its place instead. Dulcamara is a remedy I'm afraid
of since it brought up an aggravation that killed Lassie in 200x, and
didn't cure the others.Lycopodium (moss) rarely gets drawn, the animals'
energy prefers Bovista and Secale (both fungi that rot seeds).
The Cure - by resistance-building
"The cure is to build up lost resistance by rest, and to correct the sensuality.
is obvious that the state of resistance--the state of enervation--must
range from one nearly normal to one of almost no resistance at all. Scrofulous subjects should be in the
open air and sunshine as much as possible; and, if they desire comfort
and a reasonably long life, they must be moderate in all things."
