Patricia, a long-time client from New Jersey, called and related the following story.
“My six year-old daughter Claudia had developed a urinary tract infection last week. She had to pee more often and was crying from the discomfort. I looked through my homeopathic books, and after reviewing the remedies in the Family Guide, the remedy Nux vomica seemed like a good match. I started giving her a dose (in a 30C potency).
“After several doses over the next few hours, Claudia was still crying, and finally said, ‘Mommy, you are tricking me with this remedy, this is not working!’
“I now went to review the remedies in Everybody’s Guide by Cummings/Ullman, and picked Cantharis in a 30C potency. Claudia was still lying in bed crying and I gave her a few drops of Cantharis under the tongue. In about two minutes, she went totally quiet, and as I looked down I saw she had her eyes closed and a big smile on her face. I asked her if she was feeling good and she nodded and then drifted off to sleep.
“It was amazing how quickly the right remedy worked. I gave a few more doses over the next day, and it resolved the problem completely.”
