Q1. As the root cause of any illness lies in the mind, will it be reasonable to include CC10.1 Emergencies and/or CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic to help clear the underlying baggage, in the first remedy given to a patient?
A. Patients usually come to us with a specific ailment. To gain their trust we should focus and make a remedy based on symptoms as the cure will be faster. Of course if their stress, depression or fear relate to their ailment, then do include CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic. Later when there is an improvement, the patient will feel happy to share inner mental worry or emotional difficulty and it will be best to add an appropriate remedy from category 15 at that time. CC10.1 Emergencies should generally be given for emergencies and injuries. If you do feel the need to add this to the first remedy you give to the patient then it is best to exclude it as soon as the need for this is over. Also, remember that vibrionics works by clearing toxins which in turn boost one’s immunity. In this way vibrionics remedies are indirectly addressing the root cause anyway.
Q2. I shall be treating an aged bedridden patient whose frail body I fear may not be able to withstand a pullout. How can I deal with this delicate situation?
A In general, in such a situation, it is best to give a single dose and wait while checking any sign of pullout. If there is a pullout, don’t increase the dosage until it has subsided. Treading carefully, you can gradually move up to reach the prescribed dosage. Also, avoid treating a deep underlying root cause until the patient has recovered sufficiently while being treated for current symptoms. Miasm remedies which may cause pullout, are generally less effective at later ages, so should be given as early in life as possible. Also if you give remedies from the 108CC box, the chance of getting a pullout is much less.
Q3. Many patients are reluctant to take remedy in water. Shall I give them in pills?
A. It is the experience of many practitioners that vibro remedies are more effective in water but comparatively less patient-friendly. It is not always practical for some patients and in some situations eg, an elderly patient taking more than one remedy or several members of a household taking different remedies or non-availability of pure or distilled water (mineral water is not recommended). Also, pills last much longer when the remedy is made in water, especially useful when a patient is about to run out of pills. There is also the downside to taking remedies in water since the latter readily absorbs impurities (even when kept covered) from the atmosphere and so the water can become stale and remedy less effective. However, where frequent dosage is required, using water is practical and more advantageous. Insisting on a patient to take the remedy in water can be counterproductive. Refer to vol 7 #3. If there is no improvement with pills then water remedy can be considered. While administering the first dose, it is helpful to demonstrate how to make the remedy in water.
Q4. Can I use IB remedy water for gargling to keep my throat clean? What should be the ideal temperature of water?
A. It is well known that in addition to taking in the remedy orally topical application increases the efficacy of vibrionics remedies. Therefore it is perfectly fine to use the remedy water as mouth wash or for gargling. As keeping the remedy in the mouth for a minute the vibrations are already absorbed it does not matter whether you now ingest the water, or discard it because you suspect a virus in the mouth. In any case, continue taking IB on waking. Remember the vibrations in water (also in oil or cream) are effective at up to body temperature of 37C (98.6F) whereas gargling is best done at higher temperatures. So, it makes sense to gargle normally in warm saltwater and take IB remedy separate from gargling.
Q5. Vaccination is due for my 5-year old child but I am confused whether to go for it or not?
A. There are strong opinions on both sides. Some paediatricians believe that the immune system of children under three is not ready for vaccination. Some parents claim that children are at risk of getting conditions like autism after MMR or DTP. Many alternative health practitioners subscribe to the view that there is a risk of permanently weakening the immune system and a possibility of causing future allergies. On the other hand, we all know that vaccinations have saved millions of children from diseases like smallpox, polio, measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox. We feel that vibrionics can work hand in hand with allopathy. Our view is that guidelines of local health authorities should be followed and the decision to vaccinate should be entirely the choice of parents. If vaccination is to be taken, talk to a vibro practitioner first as we have remedies that can help with reducing any adverse side effects and if you choose not to go for it, then we can provide remedies for protection.
Q6. During consultations if a patient moves on to asking personal questions, how should I handle this?
A. Answer within your comfort zone. Politely tell them that your time is limited and you want to know more about them and their health issues to make the best remedy. It’s important to set a length of time for each appointment. The general suggestion is 45 to 60 min for the first appointment and 30 min for follow-up or set your own length of time. Act in a professional manner.
Q7. Vibrionics and homeopathic remedies are both subtle energy medicines. However, the instruction of keeping remedies away from radiation sources is mandatory in vibrionics but does not appear to be so in homoeopathy, why?
A. Homoeopathic remedies are traditionally prepared by dilution and succussion method, so these (above 12C potency) are similar in nature to vibrionics remedies. Hence standard storage conditions for both are to keep them away from direct sunlight, strong-smelling odours and electrical equipment that emit strong electromagnetic fields. This is based on the observation of many practitioners and there appears to be no scientific proof or study done.
