Dishwashing liquid? – You’re soaking in it!

This morning while I was in the bathroom, my 1 year old decided to take the Palmolive dish detergent and “paint” our newly painted entrance way with it. Normally we use Seventh Generation which is clear and non-toxic but we had the bright green other stuff because it cleans Lovebugs off cars and lately we’ve been inundated with them and they’ll ruin the paint on your car if you don’t get them off.
Anyway, my poor little one’s right eye was almost completely swollen shut, fire-y red and blotchy. I spent about 15 minutes trying to rinse her eye at the kitchen sink and it just was not getting any better. So I put her in the tub and poured water over it again and again for another 15 minutes and it still was not getting better. The baby was so upset as was I!
I thought about giving her a remedy and I considered Apis Mellifica and Allium Cepa. But she had just taken remedy earlier in the week for Croup and I did not want to interfere with anything that might still be working.
I suddenly had an idea and while my 10 year old daughter watched the baby in the tub, I quickly made a 10x “remedy” by dropping 1 drop of the dish detergent into an 8 oz. glass of water. I gently stirred this and took 1 drop of this water and added it to a 16 oz. bottle of spring water after I’d emptied out about 1/4 of it. I succussed it 10x and emptied all but a tiny bit, refilled it, and then succussed it again. I did this 10 times. There was never enough of the original “soap water” to make soap bubbles and after diluting it 10 times I was confident it was safe to use as a rinse.
Being a photographer, I always have my camera nearby and I decided to take a before picture to see if it made any difference. I then poured about 1/2 of the solution over the baby’s eye and forehead. She was *not* happy! But… within about 15 seconds her eye opened and the redness went down a little…
About 8 minutes later, the eye was completely open and the redness was much better! I took her out of the tub and within 30 minutes, the eye was completely better and the baby was happy again!!! 🙂 Hooray!
Originally, I thought this was technically an isode because it was using the same substance that caused the problem. But as kind reader Patty informed me it is truly homeopathic – and the most similar. Patty pointed out 379.1 in Chronic Diseases which states it does not remain the same once it is diluted and potentised. I did not give more Palmolive but a remedy made from it. (Thanks Patty – see her comments for detail.)
Having a digital camera I was able to record the timing between pictures. Have a look-see below! 🙂 The baby is down for a nap and I’m off to go scrub flourescent green dishwashing liquid off my walls!

  1. As a Heilkunstler (which is what Dr. Hahnemann called his complete medical system, of which homeopathy is a part) I find it interesting that you thought All-c or Apis might interfere with the action of the previous remedy, but that you thought a 10X of another remedy, “Palmolive Dishwashing Liquid,” wouldn’t be an issue? That remedy was still a remedy.

    You might be interested to know that Dr. Hahnemann taught us that once a substance has been diluted and potentised, it is no longer the same/idem! So it is NOT isopathy at all, because you were not giving her MORE Palmolive, but the remedy made FROM the Palmolive.

    It becomes the MOST similar, and not just a similar, which All-c or Apis might have been. It is also the most curative.

    Here is his reference:

    379.1 …for it does not remain idem (the same); even if the prepared itch substance should be given to the same patient from whom it was taken, it would not remain idem (the same), as it could only be useful to him in a potentized state, since crude itch substance which he already has on his body as an idem is without effect on him. But the dynamization or potentizing changes it and modifies it; just as gold leaf after potentizing is no more inactive crude gold leaf in the human body, but in every stage of potentization it is more and more modified and changed. (Chronic Diseases)

    So – great case showing the brilliance of the MOST similar remedy!

  2. Patty,
    Thank you for this! Very interesting! And very true. I was thinking giving the wash as a remedy instead of internally would not interfere with the remedy she had for croup. But as you state, my thinking was faulty and it did! This afternoon, her cough returned and I had to redose the remedy I had given for croup.

  3. It isn’t really the Palmolive 10X that antidoted the croup rx – with or without the original rx for croup, the life force would have had to deal with the acute first, which would have short-circuited the full remedial process for that gorgeous daughter of yours.

    Once the acute had been dealt with, her life force the symptoms of the disease returned because the remedial process had not yet been completed.

    Whether you treat for it or not, you still have an antidoting of the healing by the traumatic nature of the accident. So – feel free to treat accidents if and when they occur, and then go back to the original disease if you find you have to complete that remediation.
