A homeopathic proving of dioxin

Hello to all in the Dioxin Dorms and beyond,

Many people are not familiar with homeopathy, a form of medicine invented in the late 1700s that is still used today, though not widely in the United States. If you’ve ever taken those little white sugar pellets for an ailment, ache or pain, you have probably used homeopathy.

Homeopathic remedies can be made from anything. Most of the common ones come from plants or flowers. If you’ve ever taken arnica, that is made from mountain daisy. Others are made from animals (apis for bee stings) or minerals (arsenicum for fear). The odd thing is that a homeopathic remedy is an extreme dilution of the original; extreme meaning you cut the original tincture to a ratio of 1:100 a minimum of 10 times (10th potency or 10CH) and up to 10,000 times (10M potency) or higher; but most common remedies are sold in the 30th potency these days (30CH). These are the kind you get in the health food store in those little blue tubes.

Homeopaths are curious like few other people except maybe astrologers. They want to know the medicinal properties of everything. Some of the newer ones include Coca-Cola, Prozac and dolphin milk. In 2000, some homeopaths made a preparation of dioxin, which was rendered biologically harmless by diluting it well past the chemical limit for the presence of any molecules of the original, but preserving its psychic properties in the process.

The remedy is called dioxonium.

They gave it to a group of people in an experiment, called a proving, and let them report what they felt and experienced. Would it surprise anyone that — looking at an alphabetical list — the only ones that start with the letter A are anger and anxiety?

Being easily angered; causeless anger; anger from waiting. Anxiety came in the form of morning anxiety; anxiety in the stomach; suppressed anxiety; and trembling from anxiety.

Then there the delusions that dioxin causes.

Some of my favorites are: bad will triumph over good, because good is not good enough; body and mind are separated; that one is unprotected in the world; that one is separated and alone in the world; that love is impossible.

Some of the people in the experiment reported apathy to life; apathy to the pleasure of things usually enjoyed; irritability; and the feeling of being forsaken.

Here some of the direct proving notes from the experiment, with information about the chemical we know as dioxin that is in the dioxin dorms on the SUNY New Paltz campus.

One prover said, “My week had been about disillusionment, fear, an undermining fear that took my power away, my hope, my energy. It isolated me from others and it made me want to return to the safety of the womb. It brought me to the edge of my deepest fear – that my life is based on a lie, a false promise. That I could take right action, open my awareness, face my own issues, manifest my vision, contribute on a meaningful spiritual way to family / community / the planet, make a better place, was all a lie. That the big bad world of unscrupulous people, who are after money and don’t have a heart will triumph over good because good is not good enough. There was a promise once that I remember way back (deeply within me). Life goes on and there is something I could, but can’t contribute. What’s the point? Its behind the frame. All tied up. Bound.”

Another prover said, “Special day, my birthday. The strangest un-birthday like day today. First thing in morning felt scared and overwhelmed; sad, on the verge of tears and strangely disconnected. I felt vulnerable, withdrawn and melancholy. No birthday greetings from kids or Mark. I had expectations of being made a fuss of – even though I had set up the day to be busy. I feigned indifference and carried on. All my old feelings of being ignored, not valued and taken for granted came up and that I had to hide my feelings and bake the cakes, etc.”

So there you have it: a psychological profile of dioxin.

Yours and truly,
