MM: LOW LIBIDO
Pierre: Please tell me what brings you here.
Tell me about that please?
I appreciate the information you are giving me. Please, tell me more.
Please, tell me about your dreams.
Do you have any strong food cravings or aversion?
SEVERAL MONTHS LATER:
Natasha had surgery on the arm for varicocele (bunched up blood vessels but I think this refers to bunched up in the scrotum specifically) on the elbow, some swelling remain. She also has some swelling in the middle finger. She complains of craving fats and sugars and has gained six pounds in the last year.
Tell me about that please? These open-ended questions give the freedom to answer in whichever way people figure is best. I rarely ask a leading question. There is only one in this book.
A pause can last several minutes without anyone saying a word. This silence is most of the time a good thing. One can almost see the brain working things out to get deeper. It can be a time of great depth between the two of us. Sometimes something comes out and sometimes all I get is, “I don’t know.”
Reading this case one could think of Sylvia’s case of mastitis (see case). There are, indeed, some similarities but it is completely different. One big difference is that Sylvia needs her close ones, whereas Natasha does not.
When I gave this remedy, I gave it on old-style information I talk about from time to time such as “aversion to husband,” etc. (See Chapter 3 or Kesha’s case on migraine). Then in 2002 I discovered information from colleagues in India, which explained the qualities of remedy further. In this remedy there is a sense of attachment and detachment. It is a feeling of being estranged or a deep desire for company born out of attachment or detachment. My friends in India have helped homeopathy make enormous progress. Thanks to them, my results are far more systematic. When I speak of the difference between the old and the new methods of case taking, I am talking about the breakthroughs that were instituted by their forward-leaning thinking.
The remedy was repeated a four times during a period of six months. She was perfectly well and did not need anything further.
