Sometimes we can see further
There are days when I feel like I am walking on air! One day this last week a mother brought her little boy back for his second visit. His constant, annoying cough, which was causing the whole family sleepless nights, had been cleared up within days of starting his treatment. He stood in front of me, a beautiful young boy with a fullness of hair which accentuated his striking good looks. His grey eyes met mine full on. His square little shoulders hold the promise of a strong physique as he will grow up. He allowed me to check his iris with my magnifying glass, not blinking once while I peered at the peculiar markings on the iris, which would give me good clues of his potential strengths and weaknesses. The difference from the initial first visit to the present was striking and very encouraging. He, his mother and playschool had all worked together to limit his intake of sugar, fruit juices, dairy products and bread. He had a natural aversion to milk which helped to introduce him to soya milk and other calcium and protein rich foods.
“How are you feeling now?” I wanted to know. He answered me in a voice, strong for a pre-schooler.
“I am fine!” He was very interested in my magnifying glass, aiming it with a solid little boy hand. He inspected the palm of his left hand while he held the magnifying glass close to his right eye, the same way he watched me operating it a few minutes earlier.
“His sweaty head and feet are also much improved” . His mother reported further on his progress. She was nervously watching him hold the instrument, uncertain if he would handle it with the necessary care. “During the last few days he has started to have a mucousy cough which came and went during the day. Very different from his cough which brought him here in the first place. What could be causing it?” She had full confidence that this minor regression would be addressed with ease as she now had the experience of how well homoeopathy worked on small children in particular.
