Houttuynnia Cordata

This blossom remedy helps if you find it hard to stop your thoughts. Thoughts that keep repeating themselveslen like a gramophone record whose needle is stuck in a groove. And it doesn't matter what kind of thoughts they are. It could very simply be a song you've heard and won't get out of your head all day. It can be thoughts about conversations you have to have the next day that you keep repeating and repeating. This can go on all night. You have no control over it, it stays busy in your head.

Coffee, tea and cola further reinforce these grinding thoughts and it is therefore advisable to avoid them in the evening. Because you can get to sleep so badly in the evening, you wake up tired again in the morning. As a result, you may have a dull, dazed feeling in your head and a feeling of physical weakness that may last all day. You may be unable to concentrate well during the day and this may make you seem forgetful.

The blossom remedy Houttuynnia Cordata makes you stop thinking compulsively. There will be peace in your mind. Your grinding thoughts go away and sleep disturbances will disappear.

The reason why I have chosen Houttuynnia Cordata in this edition , is because there is a difference in blossom remedies regarding grinding thoughts. With the flower remedy Star of Bethlehem, people also suffer from grinding thoughts. However, these are related to grief, shock and painful, sad emotions while with Houttuynnia Cordata, grinding can be about anything.

Cramps in the right calf and the outside of the left foot can also be an indication of Houttuynnia Cordata. It is possible to mix flower remedies with each other and for grinding thoughts, Houttuynnia Cordata and Star of Bethlehem is a fine combination. Both belong to the heart meridian.

I would like to tell you about the flower remedy Yarrow in the next blog.

Use of Blossom Remedies

The most important thing with blossom remedies is the frequency of intake. Blossom remedies are best taken as often as possible in a day with the golden guideline being; 4 to 6 times a day, with 4 drops at a time from the dispensing bottle. To use blossom remedies and a user bottle, here are the simple steps; take a clean and unused 30ml pipette bottle. First, fill the pipette bottle with spring water. After this, add one teaspoon of brandy as a preservative, then add the blossom remedies.

Take the stock bottle or stock bottles of the chosen blossom remedies and put 3 drops of each into the 30ml. pipette bottle. A second golden guideline is; 1 drop from the stock bottle(s) to 10ml of spring water. There is no need to shake the bottle before use as it only contains the vibrations of the plants and has no actual material content.

Then take 4 drops from the user bottle and drip it under the tongue. If you touch the dropper with the tongue, mould may develop in the bottle. Repeat taking the blossom remedies at least 4 to 6 times a day.

Flower remedies are not a substitute for medication and do not replace doctors or medical specialists. Please note that in case of doubt you should always consult a doctor.
