Your/My Homeopathic Remedy

“Anne, you mentioned that you did work with a naturopath and were using magnesium to ameliorate your binge eating.  Can you tell me more about that?”

Reader, I am working with a homeopath, not a naturopath—big difference.  I am taking mercurous acetate, not magnesium, and it is not for binge eating, it is for over-all healing.  In the process of recovery, I have achieved a level of emotional stability that I have not had in decades.  Homeopathy is doing good things that no psych med ever did.

However—and this is a big HOWEVER—do not go out and buy mercurous acetate and expect it to work for you.  This is NOT a remedy that is designed to cure all psych ills; it is a remedy that was chosen by the homeopath specifically to heal MY ills.  Homeopathic remedies are a very precise fit for a specific individual.  Mercurous acetate is not a cure for depression; it is a cure for Annie.

My worst problem is the damage that pharmaceuticals have done to my immune system.  You may have a perfectly healthy immune system but your agonies may be coming from some entirely different source.  Depression can come from psychosocial, biomechanical, biochemical or environmental sources.  Other emotional distress can have other roots.

Go see a good homeopathic practitioner.  Let him/her do what they are trained to do and figure out what remedy is right for you.  I STRONGLY RECOMMEND homeopathy.  It is healing without harm.  But it is not a do-it-yourself project.  Anne

About annecwoodlen

I am a tenth generation American, descended from a family that has been working a farm that was deeded to us by William Penn. The country has changed around us but we have held true. I stand in my grandmother’s kitchen, look down the valley to her brother’s farm and see my great-great-great-great-great-grandmother Hannah standing on the porch. She is holding the baby, surrounded by four other children, and saying goodbye to her husband and oldest son who are going off to fight in the Revolutionary War. The war is twenty miles away and her husband will die fighting. We are not the Daughters of the American Revolution; we were its mothers. My father, Milton C. Woodlen, got his doctorate from Temple University in the 1940’s when—in his words—“a doctorate still meant something.” He became an education professor at West Chester State Teachers College, where my mother, Elizabeth Hope Copeland, had graduated. My mother raised four girls and one boy, of which I am the middle child. My parents are deceased and my siblings are estranged. My fiancé, Robert H. Dobrow, was a fighter pilot in the Marine Corps. In 1974, his plane crashed, his parachute did not open, and we buried him in a cemetery on Long Island. I could say a great deal about him, or nothing; there is no middle ground. I have loved other men; Bob was my soul mate. The single greatest determinate of who I am and what my life has been is that I inherited my father’s gene for bipolar disorder, type II. Associated with all bipolar disorders is executive dysfunction, a learning disability that interferes with the ability to sort and organize. Despite an I.Q. of 139, I failed twelve subjects and got expelled from high school and prep school. I attended Syracuse University and Onondaga Community College and got an associate’s degree after twenty-five years. I am nothing if not tenacious. Gifted with intelligence, constrained by disability, and compromised by depression, my employment was limited to entry level jobs. Being female in the 1960’s meant that I did office work—billing at the university library, calling out telegrams at Western Union, and filing papers at a law firm. During one decade, I worked at about a hundred different places as a temporary secretary. I worked for hospitals, banks, manufacturers and others, including the county government. I quit the District Attorney’s Office to manage a gas station; it was more honest work. After Bob’s death, I started taking antidepressants. Following doctor’s orders, I took them every day for twenty-six years. During that time, I attempted%2
