“You must be freezing!”, I said as she walked into the shop. We were all dressed warmly to ward off the icy Hillcrest wind, while she wore a T-shirt and jeans.
“I had forgotten how cold it can be up here!”, she responded with a warm smile. “You must be Irma who writes for the Sunday newspaper. I read your story about your granddaughter’s horse who died. Oh! It made me cry. I’ve always wanted to see your shop, so I decided to come out today. What a lovely place you have here”, she chatted with ease and charm. “I see you are doing a tissue salt course every Saturday afternoon. I would have loved to attend! But Saturdays are difficult for me as we do shows on that day.” She had a friendly, kind way about her, with honey-blonde hair at shoulder length. She walked in a confident way, comfortable in herself. She looked trim and fit for her age.
“What shows do you do?” I warmed towards her.
“I work in the circus. I take care of the animals and whoever else might need help”, she replied.
“The circus?! How do you take care of the animals?”, I wanted to know.
“Well, I use Bach Flower Remedies and tissue salts to help them. I once treated an elephant with the homeopathic remedy, Hepar Sulph, which miraculously cleared up his abscesses. Since then, everybody thinks I can work magic! They beat a straight line to my door for help!” She laughed in a feminine, charming way.
“So, you treat the circus animals with homeopathy. I love it! Animals respond amazingly well to homeopathic remedies. Even the dreaded horse sickness can be successfully treated with specific remedies. I think animals and babies make the best candidates for homeopathic treatment. They have good vitality and are present in the moment, essential components for homeopathic medicine to do its wonders!” I enjoyed our exchange of thoughts. “How is your granddaughter? I am sure she will be sad for a long time. The connection we make with horses is so very special. Why don’t you bring her to see a show?”, she offered an invitation while expressing her concern. “While I’m here; I’ve got a very grumpy pig at the circus. And there is also a miniature horse which eats far too much. His tummy bloats and rumbles! What can I do for them?”
