Sorry, I have been neglecting my ‘heedless homeopathy’ series of articles – it’s all too human to forget, I suppose. Here are a few remedies which also seem ‘all to human’, but in a very different sense. As far as I can see, they all originate from human tissues or materials.

I was tempted to call these products cannibalistic homeopathy, but then I decided against it; after all, the remedies contain nothing at all, only their mother tinctures are based on human materials.

In any case, I thought you might be amused (or perhaps mildly disgusted?) by my list:

Looking at the list, I cannot help asking what these remedies might be used for. Applying the twisted logic of homeopathy, while mixing it with that of isopathy, I can just about understand that:

  • MASTITIS MILK is for treating mastitis,
  • LAC HUMANUM might be for a mother wanting to stop breast feeding,
  • DENTAL PLAQUE could be against … yes, dental plaque!

But what might some of the other remedies on the list be for? Assuming that the human tissues are from biopsies or cadaveric material of (formerly) healthy individuals, I have to conclude that:

  • VERTEBRAL DISC is for someone who is keen to have back problems.
  • UTERUS is for a woman who wants to see more of her gynaecologist.
  • SEMEN HUMANUM could be an anti-baby pill for men.
  • MENSES might be an alternative for an oral contraceptive.
  • etc. etc.

As many homeopathy-fans have been pointing out endlessly, I am not a truly qualified homeopath. This means that I am merely guessing here.

So, could a member of the homeopathic fraternity PLEASE enlighten me?
