    Words of a prover

    Extraction meeting, June 9th, 2007

     

    Acknowledgment

    Without provers there would be no provings, my deepest gratitude goes to the provers that were willing to take an unknown substance and experience it fully, regardless of the symptoms rising. As in all provings it takes courage to enter wholeheartedly into this new experience. Of course it is important for the provers to be supported, without supervisors provers might be put at an unnecessary risk. My gratitude goes to the supervisors that their time generously and graciously. It was a great pleasure to learn from the experience of Bob Lawrence for the Helios Pharmacy, he gave generously of his knowledge about proving. The early morning discussions to England were stimulating and enjoyable. Thank you Bob, for your advice and wisdom. What would I have done without Skype! Thank you to Murray Feldman, and all at the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy, that over the last four years, have instilled in me a passion for homeopathy and an eagerness to contribute to this amazing healing modality.

     

    I am very grateful to my husband Robert Reppel who created a database program that allowed for a faster analysis.

    Last but not least, thank you to my family for putting up with me during the long hours of studying, collating and writing.

     

    The substance

    Worldwide, there are only three species of the Genus Oplopanax. They include

    • Oplopanax elatus from North East China, Korea and far eastern Russia;

    • Oplopanax japonica from Japan, and

    • Oplopanax horridus from Western North America

     

    The substance used in this proving was Oplopanax horridus, or Devil's club. The name Oplopanax horridus, is derived from two Greek words: hoplon, meaning weapon and panakos meaning panacea a hypothetical remedy for all ills or diseases, once sought by the alchemists. Horridus meaning horrible, frightening refers to plant being covered by thorns.

    Oplopanax horridus is classified as follows:

     

    Plant Kingdom

    Division: Magnoliophyta

    Class: Magnoliopsida

    Order: Apiales

    Family: Araliacea

    Genus: Oplopanax

    Species: Oplopanax horridus

     

    Common names: Alaskan ginseng, Devil’s club and Devil's walking stick

     

    The Araliaceae is a family of flowering plants, the family includes 254 species of trees, shrubs, lianas, and perennials herbaceous plants. The species in this family may have pinnate or palmate compound leaves, the flowers are small and in large panicles. Devil’s club is related to a number of well known medicinal plants including Asian ginseng (Panax

    ginseng C.A. Meyer), American ginseng (P. quinquefolius L.), Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus Maxim., formerly called Siberian ginseng), and sarsaparilla (Aralia nudicaulis L.) (Lantz et all, 2004).

     

    Plant description

    Oplopanax horridus is a large shrub native of the Pacific Northwest coastal forests of North America, reaching heights of over 6 meters (about 20 feet). The stems are erect and covered with stout spines of over 1 in length. The leaves are spirally arranged on the stems, simple, palmately lobed with 5 to 13 lobes, 20 to 40 cm across. The flowers are produced in dense umbels 10-20 cm in diameter, each flower is small, with five white petals, has spiny stems, large palmately lobed leaves, resembling maple leaves. The flowers are whitish or greenish occurring in terminal panicle. The fruit is a small spherical red drupe, 4-7 mm in diameter. The underside of the leaves is also unexpectedly

    covered in spines.

     

    Habitat

    Oplopanax horridus is a common deciduous understory shrub found in rich and moist but well drained, forest ecosystem, where mature Western Red Cedars and Western Hemlock dominated the overstory. Other tree species that shade Oplopanax horridus in the coastal region include Douglas Fir, Grand Fir, Pacific Silver Fir, Sitka Spruce, Mountain Hemlock, Yellow Cedar, Black Cottonwood, Bigleaf Maple, and Red Alder. Oplopanax horridus grows is forest ecosystems from coastal Alaska southwards to central Oregon, eastwards to the southwestern Yukon. Its range extends

    pass the Canadian Rockies, to Alberta, Montana and Idaho. Populations of Oplopanax horridus are found as far as the northern Lake Superior in Michigan and Ontario (Lantz et all, 2004). Oplopanax horridus often grows along stream banks and seepage faces in rich, black soil from sea level to sub alpine elevations (Turner, 1998).

     

    Chemical composition

    Research on the chemical composition of Oplopanax horridus is ongoing, however a extensive extensive review by (Lantz et all, 2004) reported that phytochemical studies (Bloxton et al, 2002) found a number of sterols and four sesquiterpenes, one of which (spatulenol) is novel to the genus. Kobaisy et al (1997) found two novel and three previously described polyenes, one of which (oplopandiol) has recently been synthesized (Moore 1993). These acetylenes all display significant antimycobacterial and antifungal activity (Xu L, 2000) and most are active against common bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, and

    Candida albicans. These compounds are also active against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium avium, both of which can cause significant clinical tuberculosis, particularly virulent in immuno-compromised hosts, AIDS patients being especially vulnerable. Notably, these pathogens are also responsible for the epidemic status of tuberculosis in Canada’s indigenous population. Since many strains of M. tuberculosis and M. avium are also resistant to the most commonly used antimycobacterial drugs, there is considerable interest in the potential of devil’s club in tuberculosis therapy. Extracts of devil’s club inner bark also partially inhibit a respiratory syncytial virus.

    McCutcheon (1995)

    It has been reported that Devil’s club has anti-microbial effects on upper and lower respiratory tract infections (Wigod 2001) However there is a growing concern (Lantz et all, 2004) that Devil's club is in danger from over harvesting especially because of its slow rate of growth. Marketing strategies relies on unsubstantiated claims of similarities between Devil's club and the highly valuable ginseng species, speculating that since Devil's club is in the Araliaceae family it should share the same chemical constituents. Unfortunately this presumption is a threat to the wild stock of Oplopanax horridus that is already in the USDA Threatened and Endangered species list in Michigan where it is listed as

    Threatened. Hence Oplopanax horridus is a plant that needs protection, a theme that was found during the

    proving.

     

    Collection

    In the afternoon of Sunday September 24, 2006 (about 5 p.m.) a well developed and healthy individual of Oplopanax horridus was found on the Mel trail leading up to Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC, Canada. A branch of 255.7 cm was cut from the plant. To ease transport, the branch was further cut into sever pieces. At the end of branch there were dried berries which were included in the remedy as well as one large and one medium sized leaves. No root was included, as I did not want to kill the plant and I though it was sufficient to use the regenerative parts of the plan. At that

    time I did not know of the theme of protection that surrounds this plant and that will be shown in the proving. The plant material was packaged in brown paper and mailed by Expressed Post to Bob Lawrence at Helios Homoeopathic Pharmacy 97 Camden Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN1 2QR, UK. When sending plant material by mail, it is important to prevent any possible growth of molds, more likely to happen when the substance is wrapped in plastic. Using heavy-duty packing paper allowed some ventilation, and the substance arrived in good conditions. Bob Lawrence prepared the Mother Tincture using the following method:

    “ The tincture was made by chopping the leaves and stem and immersing this in 65% alcohol, just enough to cover the plant matter. This was left to macerate for several weeks before filtering the liquid. This was then potentised in 90%

    alcohol.” The remedy was brought up to 30C potency.

     

    The Method

    The proving started on March 24 with 14 provers, and 13 supervisors. However, soon 5 provers dropped out and the proving carried on with the remaining 9 provers. Each prover was allocated a supervisor. The supervisor had a supportive rule, his or her task was to be in daily contact with the prover during the first week to verify and clarify the symptoms of the provers as soon as they were experienced. During the second and third week, contacts were less frequent, but at least few times a week. From the forth week onwards, contacts was left to the discretion of the supervisor and the prover. There were 8 females and 1 male provers, and 8 females and 1 male supervisors. The proving was a double blind Hahnemanian proving which included 2 placebos. The provers did not know what substance they were given or if they were given the remedy or a placed as in Table 1. I did not know who had the placebo, as the potency/placebo code was held by Helios and was opened at the end of the analysis. I did know the substance. Having decided not to have an initial meeting (see later) I did not know most of the provers and some of the supervisors.

    Seven provers were students from Year 1 and 2 of the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy, Vancouver, BC, Canada, while 2 provers were from the general public.

    Provings often start with an initial meeting where provers and their supervisors are debriefed in what to do and what to expect during the proving. During the initial meeting, provers often spend 1-2 hours quietly, without talking, either together or alone, in some cases provers spend time meditating together after taking the remedy at the same time. In the book Tobacco, Richard Pitt (Pitt, 2006) explained that the spending time together has a specific purpose:

    “The intention behind this was to create an atmosphere where the consciousness of the

    substance and the provers could be elucidated more clearly”

     

    Although the initial meeting is a common practice, Bob Lawrence noted that it creates a group dynamic that could interfere with the proving. I accepted the advice from Bob Lawrence and did not have a initial meeting but contacted each prover and supervisor individually to give then the appropriate instructions and the remedy. Provers and supervisors were emailed their documents (see Appendix 1 and 2) on lifestyle during the proving and how to record the symptoms and frequency of contacts. Provers were given the option of writing their journal by hand or on a word processor. If they chose the latter, the automatic spell check was to be switched off. No correction of spelling or words was to take place. Notice the misspelled words amongst the symptoms of a particular prover. Each prover promised not to talk with anyone about his or her symptoms or experiences until the Extraction meeting the day when the proving ended.

    The supervisors were emailed the “Instructions to supervisors” (see Appendix 2) which lighted how to support their provers and how to clarify and verify symptoms. Prior to taking the remedy the prover met with her/his supervisor so that a baseline case was recorded. This document was eventually used to establish if a symptom was “of the prover or of the

    remedy”. The prover was encouraged to start keeping a journal a week prior to taking the remedy, to get into the habit of observing her /him self and to get into the habit of allowing time for writing.

    Each prover was given a single dose (3 pellets) of the remedy and was advised to take the remedy in the morning of a quiet day. Doing so the early symptoms that can be missed when the remedy is taken at night were observed. Provers started to experience symptoms within 30 minutes of taking the remedy.

    The decision to give the provers a single dose was based on Aphorism # 130 (O'Reilly, 1996) “If, right at the outset, a properly strong medicinal dose has been administered, then one has the advantage of being able to record the exact sequence of symptoms that the prover experiences, and the times when each appears. This is very instructive for knowledge of the medicine's character because the order of the initial actions, and also the reciprocal actions, come to light most unambiguously. Even a very moderate dose is often sufficient for the proving if the prover is fine-feeling enough and very attentive (as much as possible) to his condition. The duration of a medicine's action only becomes known through the comparison of several tests [in which only one dose is given] Further in Aphorism # 137 (O'Reilly, 1996)

    “For such experiments, up to a certain degree, the more moderate the medicinal dose used, the more distinct the initial actions emerge, and only those that are more worth knowing [being aware of] without any after-action or counter-action of the life principle. This is the case provided one endeavors to facilitate the observation by the selection of a fine-feeling person who loves the truth, is moderate in every regard, and who directs the most attention to himself. On the contrary, with excessively large doses, not only are there several after-action to be met with amongst the symptoms, but also the initial action crop up in such confused haste and violence that noting may be exactly observed, not to mention the danger of excessively large dose [for the prover]. This cannot be a matter of indifference to anyone who has regard for humanity and who prizes the least of the people as his brother.”

    However, after almost 2 weeks some provers kept complaining – erroneously – that they were not experiencing any symptoms and the remedy was repeated giving 3 doses in 24 hours.

    Hahnemann encourages that to fully understand the actions of a remedy, its proving should be carried out a number of times. The current proving is but the first time that Oplopanax horridus is proven and only repetition would give a total picture of this remedy.

    The proving lasted from the week of March 24 for 11 weeks to June 9, 2007 when the Extraction meeting took place. During that meeting it became clear that although I had communicated by email or phone with the provers and their supervisors, several times, I not only did not know most of these people but I also had not idea what most of these people looked like. The provers were recruited by giving a small presentation while they were in class, a form was circulated and if interested they completed the form with their name, address, phone number and email address. Most of the supervisors were practicing homeopaths and they were found in the Canadian Society of Homeopaths

    website.

    During the Extraction meeting of June 9th, 2007, provers and their supervisors were finally meeting the people involved in the proving. The main aim of the meeting was preparation of an “Extraction Journal” by each prover/supervisor pair. Prior to the meeting, provers and supervisor received instructions of how to write the Extraction journal (see Appendix 3), so as soon everyone had a chance to briefly give their impressions of the proving, the source of the remedy was revealed and the extraction process began.

     

    The criteria used to include a symptom were as follows:

    • If in serious doubt, leave it out

    • If the prover is seen to be under the influence of the remedy (as can be seem by the general appearance of the symptoms), then ALL other new symptoms belong to the proving

    • Any symptoms that are usual or current for the prover should be excluded unless intensified to a marked degree, in which case it should be noted as such.

    • Symptoms should not be included if they have occurred in recent history (note such symptoms RS), meaning that if the prover has experienced the same symptom within a year of less, do not record the symptom. How recent depend on the totality of the circumstances of the case. We should discard symptoms that may have appeared naturally or spontaneously during the proving. For example if a prover get running nose due to allergies from tree pollen every year, the running nose is not to be considered a symptom of the proving as it occurred regularly in the past.

    • A symptom that is current but that has been modified or altered should be included while clearly describing the current and modified components and marked with (AS Altered symptom). For example, in the annual symptom of running nose due to allergies as above, if during the proving eyes were also streaming and there was also sinus congestion, which were symptoms never experienced before, then the symptom is accepted and noted as AS.

    • Any symptom that has occurred a long time previously, especially longer than 5 years, and that would seem to have no reason to repeat itself naturally at the time of the proving should be included. As Hahnemann writes in aphorism #181

    .... All the suffering, accidents and changes, of health of the prover... must be regarded and registered and belonging peculiarly to this medicine, as symptoms of this medicine, even though the experimenter has obverse d, a considerable time previously, the spontaneous occurrence of similar phenomena in himself. The reappearance of these during the proving of the medicine only shows that this individual is, by virtue of his peculiar constitution, particularly disposed to have such symptoms excited in him. In this case, they are the effect of the medicine”

    This is the reason that old symptoms should be marked as OS and please records the best of your recollection the time of last appearance.

    • Accidents that occurred during the proving are valid proving symptoms as Hahnemann mentioned in aphorism 139 with the word “Zufall” meaning “to fall upon one”. Therefore, accident or coincidences that arise during the proving should be recorded. For example “I cut third finger of my left hand with a knife” or “I had a fender bender while driving” are to be

    included.

    • If a present symptom has disappeared during the proving, it should be made clear that this is a Cured symptom, CS. The precise nature of the symptom previous to the proving should be fully noted. This should include both sensations and function. So, instead of “my sleeplessness was much improved during the proving” should be more written in a more

    specific manner for example “my sleeplessness which had been due to repetition of thoughts or events of the day, has improved. I previously would lie awake for up to 2 hours, but have been falling off to sleep within 10 minutes of my head hitting the pillow.”

    Cured symptoms were not included in the Materia Medica, but are presented in the Potential cured symptom section.

    • If you have a slight doubt to whether include a symptom or not, include it in brackets, and it will become clear during collating, the symptom will only be included if it is also present in other prover(s).

    • Intensity and frequency are also important. If a symptom is particularly intense and it occurs daily, it is likely to be a proving symptom, unless the intensity was present before the proving. If the frequency of a symptom is strongly increased or greatly decreased, these are notable symptoms. These symptoms belonging to the Altered symptoms category and classified as AS

    • The inner knowledge and conviction of the prover that these symptoms do not belong to him/her and therefore belong to the proving state, is a definite and reliable consideration that the symptom should be included.

     

    Finally, all the above factors may still never give us 100% certainty until the final proof from clinical verification.

    Note: Instructions for provers, Instructions for supervisors and Extraction meeting instructions were a modified version of the instructions given during the proving of the Giant green sea anemone by Cynthia Shepard.

     

    The day that the prover took the remedy is called Day 0, the day after is called Day 1 and so on. The coordinator of the proving extracted the symptoms from prover’s journals. In order to avoid “looking at the symptoms of the provers through the eyes of the supervisor”, I used the provers journal almost exclusively. I used the supervisor journal only to check if more information was available. The extraction journal and at times the supervisor's journal were used to “navigate” the

    provers journal, by cross-referencing.

    From the prover journal symptoms were isolated, but they were accepted only after comparing the symptom in the prover's baseline case. In several occasions I phoned provers in order to confirm or verify symptoms when it was not clear if a symptom “was of the prover or of the remedy”.

    Once the symptoms produced by the remedy were established, they were translated in the Repertory language using the categories as in the Synthesis, 2001.

    Two of the provers received a placebo dose. Interestingly, one prover had symptoms similar to provers that took the remedy, the other prover had very few symptoms, but this is more likely to be due to the prover ability to observe symptoms than the fact that she was given a placebo. Symptoms from these provers were included in the proving.

    It is very common in homeopathic proving that provers that have been given placebo have similar symptoms to those given the remedy, this inability to differentiate between placebo and treatment is a controversial issue especially amongst allopaths with little understanding of homeopathy.

    Dreams

    I dreamed of being accused of making this First nation street woman pregnant. I felt this was serious and needed to prove I didn’t do it. She looked familiar, but I didn’t know her. I was surprised by this accusation, in my dream, but felt confident I could prove it I didn’t do it. In my dream I felt sorry for her because she was mixed up Prover #2 Day 2

     

    However after a while the deep sense of calmness became too much, provers started to experience it as dullness, or a depression. When the provers experienced the inner calmness they either did not mention a need for company, some want to be alone at peace. However, when the calmness turned into dullness or in some cases to depression, provers started they crave company.

    Woke up from a nap and in an odd mood. Not mad, sad, happy or anything at all but didn’t feel like talking to anyone. Had dinner with a friend and he thought I was really upset, but I just wanted to be quiet and not talk about anything or anyone. Prover #10 Day 13

    I’m in excellent spirit today. We spent the whole day outside working on the garden and I’m thankful for the constant company of my friend and the constant activity. There is absolutely NO DOUBT that I feel better for both company and mental / physical activity and would be worse off had I been alone, studying inside the whole day. Prover #5 Day 42

     

    Two worlds or other worlds

    One prover experienced the experience of a different world apart from the Earth. The experience again was joyful and to be or return to Earth with all responsibilities that it entitled required a tremendous amount of energy. The experience of being in a different world, is not the same as of having two wills, which was also experienced by a different prover. The prover had no hesitation, she wanted to be in the other world.

     

    Mind

    I am feeling split between two worlds Prover # 8 Day 1

    Hard to concentrate - hard to pull myself down to Earth Prover #8 Day 2

    My energy was different in the late afternoon and beginning of the evening. I felt as if I was hovering an inch above the ground. Standing on bubbles. It was a high feeling, not allowing me to concentrate on what was before me. Felt far from ground and I wanted to pull the energy inside of me so I could calm the bubbling effect. Prover #8 Day 2

    I have to make an effort to concentrate. Want to be free with no responsibilities. Concentrating brings me back to what I need to do for the day and my inner state is fighting with the idea of having to do chores things/ chores. I want to let my mind go to another world and let it stay here for a while and leave everyone else out Prover #8 Day 4

     

    Foolish, lighthearted or childish behavior.

    The playful or childish behavior experienced by two provers was perceived as a great or fun symptom by one prover but in a negative manner by the other prover. What is important is that the symptom was experienced and recorded, however the reaction of the prover to the symptom belong to clinical observations.

     

    Mind

    Giddy energy – did not want to concentrate. My behavior was silly: laughing at myself a lot, enjoying being with friends (Great symptoms) Prover #8 Day 5

    Laughing with my supervisor while my husband is getting angry that I haven’t fed the kids yet. Prover #8 Day 6

    Bubbliness, lighthearted (especially with anatomy) didn’t take test seriously, didn’t worry usually do. Enjoying life, and the moment. Took one hour to shop enjoying looking at people. My friends were enjoying my bizarreness. Still silly at 8pm Prover #8 Day 6

    My reactions have been rather immature, I don’t know how else to put it. It feels like I’ve lost my filter. There have been several instances lately where I’ve paused within myself – shortly after saying something or behaving a certain way – and cringed on the inside, wishing I was able to take it back. These eager thoughtless responses seem to live on the tip of my tongue at all times just waiting for me to open my mouth. Prover #5 Day 29

     

    Heavy and light

    Heaviness is experienced as a tremendous effort being required to achieve a task, and yet the task is achievable. The experience of light is almost the opposite, tasks are achieved almost effortless and the prover was not tired from the task. The sensation of heaviness was often expressed when provers were hungry. Symptoms relating to heavy and light were found in many categories.

     

    Mind

    My energy was different in the late afternoon and beginning of the evening. I felt as if I was hovering an inch above the ground. Standing on bubbles. It was a high feeling, not allowing me to concentrate on what was before me. Felt far from ground and I wanted to pull the energy inside of me so I could calm the bubbling effect. Prover #8 Day 2

    There is an oil slick, woke up, feel heavy on the chest. Pursuing a fellow out of revenge. He was supposed to be in this big building. I went to the elevator and before it opened, I run to a room and there was only a storage room with no door. Two guys came down and around where I was and found me there. I was afraid for my life and they were ruthless, so I had to be ruthless too. The big burly guy came after me and I run to stairways and then I turned on him as he was chasing me. As he got closer I was able to throw into the cement staircase. The other guy come from behind and grabbed me. I was able to wrestle with him and bring his head against a corner wall. The big guy retreated and was able to punch me and bring me down. There I was taken to a room and they were going to abuse me further. They got me on

    Effort, struggle, limitations

    Effort, struggle and limitations were experienced from several provers. However, once a “head of steam was built up” as one prover put it, it was possible to proceed. Another aspect is that the task continued despite the effort, the struggle and the limitations, hence it was a doable task and the prover was not overcome.

    Mind

    I have to make an effort to concentrate. Want to be free with no responsibilities. Concentrating brings me back to what I need to do for the day and my inner state is fighting with the idea of having to do chores things/ chores.

    Water and fish

    Oplopanax horridus grows in moist but well drained soils. It is often found along streams in British Columbia, where it's huge leaves shade the water. The salmon, an icon in BC, spawns in such shady areas before dying. A study from the University of British Columbia with the use of radioactive traces placed on the salmon was able to find nutrients from the decomposing salmons in the local vegetation. As bears eat salmon and Devil’s club berries, such traces of the radioactive salmon were found inland. This interesting finding was also experienced in the proving.

    One of the prover talked about water, as seeing water in front of her, to the extent that she is looking with fish eyes! She was in the water. Note the provers at this stage did not know the substance. The theme of water and fish was so strong that during the extraction meeting some of the provers were convinced that the substance of either salmon or a stingy jellyfish!

    The theme of water and fish was also found in dreams, where there is also the struggle of the salmon as it swim up stream. However, the water was not always benevolent, dreams of heavy flooding were also experienced.

    Dreamed the weather was to change – Australia/Bashaw/?. Didn’t recognize the place but seemed all-together. Flooding +++++++. River over flowing, large areas of water, deep, fast and moving river. Sam (baby body, seemed older in herself) went under a piece of wood / platform and I reached in and grabbed her out. All ok, wasn’t scared just knew I needed to get her out quickly. Dark cloudy skies. Everything green. Said we should ‘ve built an ark.... Prover #3 Day 2

    Sickness

    Oplopanax horridus has been used as a medicinal plant by the First Nation in the Pacific Northwest for generation, it is not surprising that provers had dreams of sickness.

    Dreams

    Dreamed about a group of young people who had a very sick or dying person amongst them. They all stayed at a cottage. I remember feeling awkward and sorry about the sick person. Prover #12, Day 1

    Had a dream about assessing people’s health and finding surprises about who was susceptible to sickness. Some looked healthier than others, but got sick easier. Of these, some got healthier quicker then others. I thought, WOW, humans are fascinating. Energy is heavily influenced by thought and feelings. Energy changes bring on health or sickness. It is amazing how people can look so much the same, and yet are so vastly different from each other, because of ebb and flow of energy in them. Prover #2 Day 32

    Birth and dying

    Dreams

    Dreamt I was at a picnic / party – all the buildings were wooden shacks. I sat at the picnic table in the front yard – during the afternoon I gave birth to 8 babies. In my intelligence I knew that that would take 8-9 years and on the calendar, it took 2 weeks (missed a day here and there). It was lovely to think of the babies names – never actually saw the babies. Was bleeding (normal) for births. After checking the calendar was ready to go home. Seems like E Indian male from work was the father. Prover 3 Day -2

    I dreamed about drug pushers. There were many of them selling drugs in bars, hotels on the street everywhere. There were two drug barons, one big burly guy and a short skinny guy all dressed in fancy suits. They were very intimidating and made people very fearful. By the end of the dream I found there wasn’t a safe place safe street free of drugs out there. The drug trade business looked dangerous and unstoppable. It was frightening to see so many people

    deteriorates, some faster than others, yet they went back for more. Slow suicide. I was caught in the drug world and I was troubled about trying to get out of it. It felt I would be pursued by the law, drug lords or users no matter which direction I went. I felt unprotected and very vulnerable. Prover #2 Day 2 05:15 am

    My soul was separated from my body. I was trying to fly away and I could see my own body. But it was hard something was stuck. I could not fly easily it was very tiring. Prover #10 Day 20

    Gatherings (weddings, parties etc.)

    A number of dreams had the common theme of gatherings that were experienced by several provers most of the gatherings had pleasant connotation but not all.

    Dream centered around embarrassment and being uncomfortable. My husband and I were leaving one wedding and found ourselves in a reception room for another wedding. Mark insisted we sit down especially since my name was on one of the place card. I did not want to and eventually got up to find out if we were supposed to be there or were we party crashing. When I returned with an answer Mark was laughing with other guest and graciously getting up from the table saying the tip to be present at this wedding was 2 month salary. There was no unpleasantness but I felt embarrassed. I was happy the dream finished. Being uncomfortable in situations is not my cup of tea. Prover #8 Day 3

    I dreamed I was at a big party. I was going to host another get-together in a few days and two separate delegations of women came up to me and gave me a beautiful arrangement of flowers. They had their roots on and were wrapped in plastic. I thought they were very beautiful and I was so touched. One of the women put a white silk or nylon scarf around my shoulders. When the party officially began music started to play and everyone formed a big oval and started dancing in formation. I didn’t want to take part and stood with some other people in the back. Next came the kitchen personnel and lined up all dressed in white. I realized now what a big scope that party had. Later a lady with a white apron and white gloves came around with a tray of drinks. I took one and thanked her for cooking all that delicious food. Then the bagpipes started playing I got interested and mixed with the other people to see the players from up close Prover #12 Day 7

    A festival, somewhere that people were gathering for fun. Saw my friends. It was a pleasant dream. Prover #17 Day 10

    Violence, vulnerability and protection

    As mentioned earlier the plant is covered with thick thorns. In the wild Oplopanax horridus is rather an attractive plant but once you get closer you realize that you should stay away from it, it demands respect, you just don't mess about with Devil's club.

    Native people in ancient times used sticks of Devil's club as a weapon, after removing the thorns in the handle part (hence the name). In this plant there seem to be a built-in theme of violence or the need for protection. Once the Oplopanax horridus is burned it produces a black ash that mixed with bear fat was used by First Nation warrior for war markings. War marking has the function of scaring the enemy away by making the warrior more fearsome and perhaps giving more the warrior more confidence. The theme of violence and of protection is clearly seen in several dreams.

    Dreams

    I had committed a murder and was busy covering it up. The feeling that stayed was how I frantically tried to cover everything up but convinced myself that with modern methods I would not be able to get away. I was shocked about the dream because I never dream violent stuff like that. Prover #12 Day 1

    I dreamed about plant medicine. I felt sad because many of our plant relatives have less space to grow with so much human development. In my dreams I was telling someone of another dream I had there was a big gathering of people around the world talking about how we could survive on this planet with overcrowding. I look over to the left and some animal spirit rising up and disappearing into the clouds. I shouted to the crow “Look, look we are following on the wrong direction. The animals are leaving us. We need to think of protecting their survival if we are to survive!” Prover #2 Day 8

    I had a dream about my parents, I saw them here in Canada, it was a very unexpected visit. I was shocked and very happy to see them.

I saw dead bodies shown on TV news, dead women and kids; old corps remains from war for long time. it was horrible. Even in dream I couldn’t watch TV anymore. Prover #10 Day 1

    Dreamed that somebody planned on murdering two little girls. One of them talked to me and I thought it would be so terrible I they got murdered.

    The concept of protection is not limited to individuals but it extends to the protection First Nation traditions, of people's health, of plants and the whole planet and is experienced in very vivid dreams.

     

    Dream I was explaining the stories we have, like “How the pipe came to the people” as we have to make the medicine what more relevant to people with addictions. It was a real challenge and I had to balance oral teaching with written teachings in lessons. Our traditional ways was oral but in today’s world people are needing something written. Whatever oral or written, activities needed to bring our self-awareness in the participants so they could make their own decisions on the changes in behavior that leads to healthy / happy lives.

    During the proving 7 out of 9 provers either moved or changed their dwellings or renovated their home, and 2 supervisors moved or renovated their homes! How can one possibly explain this?

    Pace of the remedy

    The remedy has slow pace, it seem to need to “build up a head of steam” before it start to act. In a way it is not surprising, it takes over two winters for Oplopanax horridus to germinate and several years before it can reach maturity. However, it does not mean that it cannot act quickly. Provers have experienced both of these modes of action.

It was a high feeling, not allowing me to concentrate on what was before me. Felt far from ground and I wanted to pull the energy inside of me so I could calm the bubbling effect. Medicine took the edge away, but also took vitality away, like losing joy of doing things, not so hyper and active about everything like I usually am.

I want to let my mind go to another world and let it stay here for a while and leave everyone else out 4 8

    Listening to a particular music on the radio made me cry this morning. Felt emotional or on the brink of tears without an explanation why. Lasted for a few hours. Even walking outside would not eliminate the feeling. Withdrawn in my own world and thoughts (this happens from time to time) 4 8

    Feeling good, relaxed, one lady said I really calmed her down 4 12

    Feeling I am going against the flow. Hard, tiresome, looked at the long road ahead, but you have to make it all the way. Have to take a deep breath and keep going. Weighty, carry a burden. 4 2

    Self assured, I don't get as anxious 4 2

    Feeling laid back 4 2

    I feel a better version of myself i.e. far less irritable, happier, ... lightened if you will 5 5

    I feel better than I usually do 5 5

    Self- assured don’t get as anxious. 5 2

    Feeling composed 5 2

    Giddy energy – did not want to concentrate. My behavior was silly: laughing at myself a lot, enjoying being with friends (Great symptoms) 5 8

    I got a little impatient when I bought paint for the renovation and there was middle –aged man with a beer belly serving me. It was obvious he was being trained, but he seems to have very little interest in what he

    was doing. 5 12

    Laughing with my supervisor while my husband is getting angry that I haven’t fed the kids yet. 6 8

    Just wanted to enjoy life and the moment. 6 8

    Bubbliness, lighthearted (especially with anatomy) didn’t take test seriously, didn’t worry usually do. Enjoying life, and the moment. Took one hour to shop enjoying looking at people. My friends were enjoying my bizarreness. Still silly at 8pm 6 8

    In good spirit and let things dripple off my shoulders. It is OK when someone is upset with me (She doesn’t make up words, usually) 7 8

    Getting short tempered, sensitive, irritable, and negative after 4:30-5 p.m. Feeling betrayed. Desire to be alone. Desire silence; do not want to talk to anyone. 04:30:PM 7 10

    Was out with a friend for a glass of wine and had this sense of happiness. Generally I am a happy person but I just said to my friend “aren’t we so lucky”, we have nothing to complain about. Just felt happy to be where I was. 9 4

    Slightly grumpy during lunch just due to me feeling tired but not annoyed, frustrated or angry. More of a feeling of just wanting to be alone and quiet 12:00 AM 10 4

    Thinking about that green water a lot. It’s like green phosphoressence and I see it in front of my eyes/in my head a lot since taking the remedy. It’s s fun, happy to see that. 10 3

    Better concentration 10 12

    Woke up from a nap and in an odd mood. Not mad, sad, happy or anything at all but didn’t feel like talking to anyone. Had dinner with a friend and he thought I was really upset, but I just wanted to be quiet and not talk about anything or anyone. 06:30 PM 12 4

    Happy and positive. Humorous. 13 10

    I resent her bossy, intimidating ways, I always was very careful around her and appeased her because I wasn’t very fond of her energy but now I decided to stand up to her. Why should she walk on me? 13 12

    I feel at peace today. Good not to clutter my mind up with too many things 13 2

    What I didn’t have was, taking about insanity, I was constantly talking about me getting crazy. 14 10

    Peace, felt nice 15 2

    In peace, no worries 15 2

    I feel I could drop doing homeopathy and concentrate on the language and doing work to establish the Healing Village. It’s like having two wills. I would like to become a homeopath, but I wan to work more with my culture. To do both, I need to somehow integrate them both, the challenge is always time. Joanne Paul lamented that we don’t have long enough to live, I can certainly relate to that. 15 2

    Feel like I have 2 road to go make a choice to become a homeopath or to work on language culture. Two wills one side I wanted to do this or my priority my culture 16 2

    Clear mind, calm, no stress, and no irritability. 16 10

    The one thing I noticed was the inner calmness again 17 12

    I threw up. I never vomit, not even if I’ve too much to drink, and so I still feel the way I did when I was a child: frightened and tearful > for it, and sleeping afterwards. 20 5

    Actually quite disappointed, started off so positive so excited about this testing of medicine, but with nothing much happening...disappointed. 20 12

    Calm feeling still there, feels as if I just had drink chamomile tea. Don't feel it anywhere in body, its in the mind. 20 12

    Afraid of putting weight on 20 11

    Lonesome 20 12

    The calmness turns almost into being depressed when I am by myself but that goes away as soon as people are around me. 20 12

    When it was my turn my instructor said he wasn’t sure if the map and the veggie-chopper worked together and he thought I has just scaled my model up and it looked naïve, like a toy. I felt like stabbed in the back. He oversaw my work and at not point he explained how the proportions had to be changed in a bigger piece. I didn’t know. About the map I told him that the piece had been intended to stand on a meadow with surveyor stakes around it. He said I never told him that but I distinctly remember telling him 2 or 3 times. He is so hyper that he doesn’t listen. I felt pretty bad about that. I wished I had gone to the party instead. All along he had told me how much he liked the piece and he had been very helpful to get it finished, Well, that’s a Scorpio for you. They bring out the sting when you last expect it 21 12

    Clear sharper thinking 22 2

    Calmness is still here 22 12

    I still have that nice calm feeling 23 12

    I felt hurt about that. Offended 25 12

    I feel a bit more emotional than usual, as though talking about an intense subject could bring me to tears. This is not like me. Also I feel less tolerant, less giving. 27 9

    Disappointed. Desire to cry but control myself. Seeking change in life, in job. Short temper, but could control my anger. 28 10

    Emotionally feeling quite strange, confident 28 9

    My reactions have been rather immature, I don’t know how else to put it. It feels like I’ve lost my filter. There have been several instances lately where I’ve paused within myself –shortly after saying something

    or behaving a certain way – and cringed on the inside, wishing I was able to take it back. These eager thoughtless responses seem to live on the tip of my tongue at all times just waiting for me to open my mouth. I feel this primal urge for acceptance when, honestly, since beginning this proving especially, I feel the people in my life loving me –more – if anything...29 5

    Felt like I have fish eyes 29 3

    I walked past a window and thought I looked like a boy 30 5

    That medicine really calmed me down, almost a bit too much, ... I felt a little depressed 30 12

    Feeling strong and confident 31 9

    Feeling more capable and confident now. My classmate who drives in with me in the morning commented that I seem calmer. I'm not walking and talking in such a hurried manner. 33 9

    I got really impatient at Staples (Office store). 35 12

    Less social the past couple of days / nights. The feeling is that I am content in my own little bubble and do my own thing without consulting or accommodating anybody else. No sadness, or anxiety involved. I just don’t want to speak. I want to be by myself, I don’t want to put anything out there, like a wallflower 36 5

    I feel lonely. I feel ugly and lonely and like crying. Lonely is like being torgotten about. I feel like I’m in the woods lost and wondering around without direction. 41 5

    Music helps significantly. 42 5

    I'm putting unintended words in place of the ones I indend. or letters in the wrong order ans (for some reason) NOT catching it 43 5

    I have been making a lot of errors in tyoing / writing 43 5

    < crying, company 46 5

    Everything is heavy 46 5

    Loosened and brought up green mucous streaked with blood upon waking. No expectoration with the cough 35 5

    Cough: dry, tickling Mucous brought up this morning, yellowish. Still need to clear the throat, but am coughing more in response to this annoying tickle as opposed to something bronchial 36 5

Tenacious and grayish, when brought up from the chest and when blown from the nose in the morning (thin and clear from the nose throughout the day and night). The excess mucous is only an issue when I am active / getting some cardiovascular exercise. It’s not a problem at all when I’m still studying

    R scapula awareness around 15:30 - light touch as a pin prick, only once 6 8

    unrelenting. 8 8

    Back aching – L side behind pelvic bone muscle turned in hip area, burning pain, sensation strong deep unrelenting. Felt better while moving and changing positions. Didn’t feel it when not moving. 8 8

    Back was better and so was the hip until I took a yoga class. Now the hip is screaming at me. It wants to release but doesn’t have the space to do so. 9 8

    Out shopping and walking around and started to experience some lower back soreness. Do have a history of back problems, but it does not bother me often or when walking for long periods. Was worse on walking downhill and went away with rest. 04:00 PM 9 4

    I am having some muscle soreness in neck, like an achy tightness, definitely a result of whiplash. Inflammation on L and soreness Back / hip started out very painful in the morning. I could feel the pain in my intestines. The pain wanted to make me sick. My tendency is to ignore these pains which I tried to do. The pain subsided as the day progressed and I did eventually forget about it completely. Moving the stiffness out of the muscle seemed to help 10 8

    Stiffness on my right side back muscles, neck and shoulder. It goes all the way down to pelvic area. 10 10

    Pain in hip / back and going down the thigh. Pain tires me out because it is so unrelenting. The area is so tight. It has a feel as if it will not bend at all – like a steel rod 13 8

    Sitting crossed-legged (normal) and L leg fell asleep, had pins and needles, doesn’t usually happen 08:30 AM 7 4

    Did have some cramping again in L foot (arch) through the night, can recall it happening at least twice, only lasted a minute and went away 08:30 AM 8 4

    Back was better and so was the hip until I took a yoga class. Now the hip is screaming at me. It wants to release but doesn’t have the space to do so. 9 8

    Right shoulder is sore, muscle stiffness. Feels like my right leg has been pulled up. 10 10

    I tripped on a stair that petered out from a full stair to no stair, although it was marked yellow. Because I had my hands all full I couldn’t stop the fall with my hands and fell on my L side. My right ankle is totally sprained and swell to double its size. 10 12

    Both palms are hot and feel dry, wants to wash with cool water. 12 10

    Now I cannot hurry anymore. Have to take my time with my sore foot 12 12

    The ganglion cyst on R wrist has disappeared (ruptured) for no apparent reason 13 5

    More cramping in L arch of foot. Lasted a minute, just spasm of the muscle, relieved will stretching out the foot 11:30 PM 13 4

    Pain in hip / back and going down the thigh. Pain tires me out because it is so unrelenting. The area is so tight. It has a feel as if it will not bend at all – like a steel rod 13 8

    Doing some stair climbing as part of my workout and noticed after 20 minutes my R foot started to go numb, pins and needles feeling. Carried on for 5 more minutes. Symptoms unchanging. Numbness subsided as I began to walk around. Numbness lasted no longer than 10 minutes 06:30 PM 14 4

    One small vesicle on L hand, outer aspect, @ base of thumb. It lasted maybe 12 hours. An old symptom for me. 14 3

    I strained the top of my left foot walking quickly in flip-flops this morning, and all day during class it was really painful and I found myself limping about because it was painful to put pressure on it. Aggressively stretching it while I sat helped, but it’s really sensitive to touch, Nerve-like pain 22 5

    L foot tender across the top and sensitive to pressure 23 5

    My foot is still swollen and hurts if I don't put it up 23 12

    Passed Aikido exam, but blew both of my ankles, discomfort from that 31 11

    The strain across the top of my L foot from day 22 has also produced an osteophyte. It is more of a bump and less isolated, but I can feel that it is solid and I am irritated by this... 34 5

    Two weeks (after rupture of ganglion on R wrist) I have a very small osteophyte in it’s place. It is very sensitive to pressure, and the nerve pain associated if ever I ht on something makes me feel really irritable. I feel like wrapping up my wrist and cradling it to prevent it from getting bumped 34 5

    The middle finger on my left hand is swollen in the top joint. It was been for a few days. It hurts when I press it, 40 2

    Sciatica L sided > stretching, sciatica kicks in, like an electrical shock 455

    Dreams

    Dreamt I was at a picnic / party – all the buildings were wooden shacks. I sat at the picnic table in the front yard – during the afternoon I gave birth to 8 babies. In my intelligence I knew that that would take 8-9 years and on th calendar, it took 2 weeks (missed a day here and there). It was lovely to think of the babies names – never actually saw the babies. Was bleeding (normal) for births. After checking the calendar was ready to go home. Seems like E Indian male from work was the father.-2 3

     

    Dream : My ex-husband told me I needed to find a boyfriend. I got involved with a man who I quite liked and when I asked him how old he was he said 30. I wanted to see him again, but somehow lost track 0 12

     

    I dreamed about drug pushers. There were many of them selling drugs in bars, hotels on the street everywhere. There were two drug barons, one big burly guy and a short skinny guy all dressed in fancy suits. They were very intimidating and made people very fearful. By the end of the dream I found there wasn’t a safe place safe street free of drugs out there. The drug trade business looked dangerous and unstoppable. It was frightening to see so many people deteriorates, some faster than others, yet they went back for more. Slow suicide. I was caught in the drug world and I was troubled about trying to get out of it. It felt I would be pursued by the law, drug lords or users no matter which direction I went. I felt unprotected and very vulnerable.

     

    Dream. Instead of looking after my classes in school I explored a building with a bunch of people. Now and them I had a bad conscience that I had left the kids by themselves. 1 12

    Dreamed about a group of young people who had a very sick or dying person amongst them. They all stayed at a cottage. I remember feeling awkward and sorry about the sick person. 1 12

    I had committed a murder and was busy covering it up. The feeling that stayed was how I frantically tried to cover everything up but convinced myself that with modern methods I would not be able to get away. I was shocked about the dream because I never dream violent stuff like that. 1 12

    Struck by the denseness of the dream. Felt like impt dream. Thick, a lot in it, weaving through layers to get the answer and I didn’t get it. Emphasis of this dream was the fogginess, almost slow motion, trying to find the answer, looking for something. 1 8

    Had a dream about getting into a verbal argument with a friend from elementary school about whether I was a good friend or not. Dream made me feel a bit anxious but woke up in OK state 1 4

    I had a dream about my parents, I saw them here in Canada, it was a very unexpected visit. I was shocked and very happy to see them. Then I saw people protesting in the street, it was an unexpected event and I was shocked again, trying to escape from the crowd. I saw dead bodies shown on TV news, dead women and kids; old corps remains from war for long time. It was horrible. Even in dream I couldn’t watch TV anymore. 1 10

    I dreamed of being accused of making this First nation street woman pregnant. I felt this was serious and needed to prove I didn’t do it. She looked familiar, but I didn’t know her. I was surprised by this accusation, in my dream, but felt confident I could prove it I didn’t do it. In my dream I felt sorry for her because she was mixed up 2 2

    Dreamed the weather was to change – Australia/Bashaw/?. Didn’t recognize the place but seemed all-together. Flooding +++++++. River over flowing, large areas of water, deep, fast and moving river. Sam (baby body, seemed older in herself) went under a piece of wood/platform and I reached in and grabbed her out. All ok, wasn’t scared just knew I needed to get her out quickly. Dark cloudy skies. Everything green. Said we should 've built an ark....2 3

     

    Had a dream that a friend was coming behind me to scared me and I turned to look at him in the face and it startled me and I woke up with heavy breathing. Not afraid but a bit anxious. 07:30 AM 2 4

    I dreamed that my son XX had a concert with his band on a big plaza. I was just watching. When the concert was over and all the people had vacated the square I realized how big the audience was and regretted not having sold their CDs. I figured I could have made 2000 – 3000 $ for them and this way they played and weren’t rewarded for their effort. 3 12

    Had a dream about my Aikido exam (in a large gymnasium with strangers – weird because that’s not the format). Vivid dream, anxious about the examination. Isolated, nervous, STRANGERS 3 11

    Dream centered around embarrassment and being uncomfortable. My husband and I were leaving one wedding and found ourselves in a reception room for another wedding. Mark insisted we sit down especially since my name was on one of the place card. I did not want to and eventually got up to find out if we were supposed to be there or were we

    party crashing. When I returned with an answer Mark was laughing with other guest and graciously getting up from the table saying the tip to be present at this wedding was 2 month salary. There was no unpleasantness but I felt embarrassed. I was happy the dream finished. Being uncomfortable in situations is not my cup of tea. 3 8

    One dream I was watching a good friend of mine dancing, The movement was beautiful and it left me feeling heavenly. When the show ended I wanted to go out, talk to the dancers, prepare myself to dance the part. Instead the dancers all dispersed without a thought of what had taken place and no interest of holding on to the beauty that was created. I felt

    disappointment, bewilderment and sadness to what I saw was a carelessness and a lack of regard for anything but themselves. Slightly angry at them too. 3 8

    Dream: I was descending a precarious staircase, metal and steep, I was having no difficulty, feeling very competent and capable. Now I am on the staircase a second time. It has been altered to make it easier yet is still a bit difficult. My husband is with me and I still have this sense of being capable. As we get to the bottom rings narrow and we must slip through a small hole. My husband goes first. It's my turn, I asses the hole and find it too small, yet it must be possible, my husband did it. Should I go head first, feet first, I'm not sure I'll get stuck, I'm scared. I finally realize that it is physically impossible. I can't do this and going back up the staircase is scary, difficult and doing so would give me a sense of failure. I woke up 4 9

    There is an oil slick, woke up, feel heavy on the chest. Pursuing a fellow out of revenge. He was supposed to be in this big building. I went to the elevator and before it opened, I run to a room and there was only a storage room with no door. Two guys came down and around where I was and found me there. I was afraid for my life and they were ruthless, so I had to be ruthless too. The big burly guy came after me and I run to stairways and then I turned on him as he was chasing me. As he got closer I was able to throw into the cement staircase. The other guy come from behind and grabbed me. I was able to wrestle with him and bring his head against a corner wall. The big guy retreated and was able to punch me and bring me down. There I was taken to a room and they were going to abuse me further. They got me on a bed and I somehow got off and grabbed some kind of club and I hit the one right in the groin, but it didn’t seam to hurt

    him very much. So I tried again and it really hurt him but not enough to put him down. 4 2

    Dream of symbols of struggle, like the salmon going upstream, limitations and external control, like a train it can only follow it tracks, it cannot stop on a dime, it moves slowly at first then it can build up a good head of steam, it has lights at the side of the tracks which controls it, trains get side-lines along the way 4 2

    I received a package with free gifts in it, some crystal vases, and a beautiful flute. I could play the flute very well, and everyone around me was so amused. I couldn’t believe it as it was the first time I was seeing such a huge flute. (I used to play flute years ago, I knew it in my dream, but this was a different instrument) 4 10

    Dream I was explaining the stories we have, like “How the pipe came to the people” as we have to make the medicine what more relevant to people with addictions. It was a real challenge and I had to balance oral teaching with written teachings in lessons. Our traditional ways was oral but in today’s world people are needing something written. Whatever oral or written, activities needed to bring our self-awareness in the participants so they could make their own decisions on the changes in behavior that leads to healthy / happy lives. 5 2

    Dreamt last night about a flood of a river. Lots of lots of water and swift and deep moving river. Lots of green around (trees, etc) despite gray skies. Reminded of the sense of the fish fighting on the line and greenish water 5 3

    Dream Teaching people how to pick dandelion roots and chicory roots, washing / drying them to make a coffee substitute that is good for the liver; picking out the whole plantain plant, cleaning it and making a tea that is

    good for bladder and kidneys. 6 2

     

    I dreamed about getting the whole class involved with cooking meals with beans that is a source of vitamins. All the different foods that are inexpensive but healthy, especially for those recovering from addictions. ...in my dream I felt the need for a lot of planning. Driving a car, controlling a car. Not much details I remember. 6 10

    Dream about exploring whether I took after my father or mother, I couldn’t decide who I took after more mom or dad. For example Dad had a temper, was very dominant, but, although mom was meek, she did have stubbornness about her and, she was a Scorpio. Scorpio’s have a stinger, and she could use hers verbally. Although I knew a lot about how I was influenced by my parents, I felt I didn’t know myself enough. There is more to discover about myself. 7 2

     

    I dreamed I was at a big party. I was going to host another get-together in a few days and two separate delegations of women came up to me and gave me a beautiful arrangement of flowers. They had their roots on and were wrapped in plastic. I thought they were very beautiful and I was so touched. One of the women put a white silk or nylon scarf around my shoulders. When the party officially began music started to play and everyone formed a big oval and started dancing in formation. I didn’t want to take part and stood with some other people in the back. Next came the kitchen personnel and lined up all dressed in white. I realized now what a big scope that party had. Later a lady with a white apron and white gloves came around with a tray of drinks. I took one and thanked her for cooking all that delicious food. Then the bagpipes started playing I got interested and mixed with the other people to see the players from up close. 7 12

     

    I dreamed about plant medicine. I felt sad because many of our plant relatives have less space to grow with so much human development. In my dreams I was telling someone of another dream I had there was a big gathering of people around the world talking about how we could survive on this planet with overcrowding. I look over to the left and some animal spirit rising up and disappearing into the clouds. I shouted to the crow “Look, look we are following on the wrong direction. The animals are leaving us. We need to think of protecting their survival if we are to survive!”

    I felt worried and a little resigned about our future on this planet. We all need to do our part to reduce carbon dioxide into the air and have more respect for Mother Earth. 8 2

    Very active dreams but do not remember about what. The feeling was that I was moving around a lot 8 8

     

    I dreamed about everything having a flaw, something was too short or too long. Something just didn’t fit. I thought about how all this was unusual, but in a way quite normal. I thought about the expression “nobody is perfect” yet we think some people are perfect or close to it, or more perfect than we are.9 2

     

    Dreamed that Steve Harper, his wife and 2 children visited us. They surprised us with the visit and told us that they often do that to people. It turned out that they only expected tea and coffee (thank God). I felt surprised an unprepared that the Harpers showed up unannounced. 9 12

    I dreamed I was involved in street drugs. I ended up moving out in a big country house where a lot of people did drugs. I let one know I was taking drugs, but really didn’t take any. These were all kinds of color of drugs and I thought “they might look attractive but they are dangerous”. I felt uncomfortable being there. Stayed over night and was to go home next AM. In my dream, I got up and wanted to leave right away, but there was always something that kept me there. I couldn’t find all my things. It was frustrating. People wanted me to stay longer. I asked what time it was, someone said 4:30 PM. I was shocked at how fast how fast the day went and told everyone I had to leave and I left 10 2

     

    Active dreams again. Was so sleepy when awakening that I could not recall any of the dreams. I think my dreams are tiring me out 10 8

    I kissed my coworker (male) in front of my dad and when my dad was shocked and angry at the same time, I looked directly in to his eyes, shameless, with my hands on my waist A gesture showing that I am ready to fight for my right and freedom. 10 10

    Dreamed about this girl (who I don’t know) who hit my dog and almost killed her. We were sitting in a classroom or somewhere similar and I was just so angry with this girl so I started to punch her. I just really hated her 10:00 AM 12 4

     

    Went for shopping, waited for a long time on line then the salesperson served the costumer after me, I got angry and said this is my turn, he refused to serve me and said, it is OK. I started arguing for my right. My husband said nothing. I was arguing and all people on line said nothing. I got angry and throw some trays of nuts which were on the counter then we got out of the store. I was happy and satisfied that I did what I did also I was thinking and planning to sue the guy, but my husband was crying as he was so stressed. I woke up angry thinking why the salesperson had acted like that, then I started reviewing the whole story and make more options for me, how to deal with such situation. 12 10

     

    Dream I was dropped on a strange place. I was on a mission to find something or do something. I felt adventurous and I was not afraid. 13 2

    Dreamed that somebody planned on murdering two little girls. One of them talked to me and I thought it would be so terrible I they got murdered. The whole thing gave me a creepy feeling and when I woke up I felt bad and a little depressed from the dream. I never ever have violent or creepy dreams like that 13 12

     

    Last night dreamed I was diving around a ship wreck ( a metal battleship kind of ship). There were lots of people there also in the water, also lots of sharks around. Swam around, could see clearly in the water, the water was darkish and cool, then I swam into a warm current that was brighter light. The sharks stayed at a distance. 13 3

    Lots of dreams about water, rivers, oceans, sailing 13 3

    Sick cat, with her kittens. Dumped in a parking area. My husband and I tried to help them The sick cat bite me. We were thinking about how to take them to vet. 13 10

    Dream. I checked into these sleeping quarters and I had to go to this important meeting at a big hall or convention center, just down the hill. I remember getting ready and deciding to leave my dream at my room. When I got to this meeting, there was a big table at the front with a lot of important people there. It looked like a board of directors. This was an international meeting of some kind. In my dream I saw these people who spoke a different language, it appear to be aboriginal people. The leader presented the “Board of Directors” to take leave into a separate room that was much smaller. When they all got into the room, the door locked them in from the outside but they couldn’t come out but they could hear us andwe could hear them.

    Then the energy changed in the whole room. These aboriginal who spoke a different language said through a translator that we could now make our own decision to make a better world. We got some people up and they said a prayer and started singing. I thought I should sing a drum too, but my drum was at the sleeping quarter just up the hill. There were some drums on the table, and I thought I could borrow and use those drums. Then someone started drumming at the back of the hall. Then all the other drummers come to get their drums and I knew that if I wanted to drum too, I would have to get my own. I also thought that if I sang, the other the other room would recognize my song and know it was me singing. I went to get the drum and returned to the big hall. This woman touched my shoulder and I turned around and she was smiling and was very beautiful. She said, “Don’t get too excited I am a service ” 15 2

     

    Woke up with a dream at 3:30 am – I was in bed and the phone rang. The answering machine picked it up and I could hear the message. It was my grandmother (she passed away several years ago). She said Hello, wished us well and told me that my father had passed away in his sleep last night. I was unable to get back to sleep after this dream so I got up to do some school work. 16 9

    A festival, somewhere that people were gathering for fun. Saw my friends. It was a pleasant dream. 17 10

    Dream I had a dream about being involved with a meeting with the Premier and his Ministers. We were in a big hotel. The tables set up for the meeting was quite awkward. The Premier came to the meeting really late. They were at the center of the room so some people were in front and some to the back of the Premier and his government officials.

    The purpose of the meeting was vague. The people at the meeting felt outraged, disappointed and insulted that the Premier came to the meeting late. When this was pointed out, the Premier was very callous and blunt about not having been able to be here earlier and asked the speaker to address the issues instead. Other speakers spoke and the Premier interrupted and said he didn’t have time to talk about negativity and got up and left. There was a big stir and I was the moderator for the meeting and felt at a loss as what to do. I felt that a golden opportunity to build the right relationship had slipped away. I felt confused and that I was not measuring up to the job I was asked to do. 19 2

     

    My soul was separated from my body. I was trying to fly away and I could see my own body. But it was hard something was stuck. I could not fly easily it was very tiring. 20 10

     

    I dreamed that I was part of an investigation on someone. We were at a hotel. I was following the orders of a top investigator in this person who was involved in drugs. We encountered this woman who was very helpful and she needed a ride into the center of the town / city we were at. The top investigator ignored her and went somewhere else. I have said she tried but since he didn’t want to help her, she would go on her own way. I felt sorry for her and said I would approach him, after all she was so helpful. Then in my dream I thought there may be a good reason why the top investigator may not want to help her out. Maybe she was part of his investigation. So I told her she did a good job, but she was going the wrong way and we didn’t have time to drive her where she wanted to go. 21 2

     

    I had a dream about food. In my dream, I was talking with people about how the food companies should put on the label what hydrogenated ingredients can harm you in the long run. Companies keep putting on the packages “No Trans fats” yet, on the small print for ingredients, they include hydrogenated ingredients. I felt frustrated, annoyed. 24 2

    Dreams of baby snakes, baby crocodiles. 24 10

    I had a dream, I forgot most of it, but the part I remember is a huge, sunny room, one I have never seen with a big bed in it. On the bed there was a quilt in orange and yellow patterns. I remember how I marvel at the beauty of this fabric. It was exquisite. 25 12

    Dreamed of a man who was transforming to a woman and was developing breasts. He had a hard time hiding this. 26 2

    Saw my grandmother (she is dead) we were escaping from somewhere, and my father was killed by gun.26 10

     

    Had a dream about this man who was training for some physical challenge of some sort. He had a female trainer who looked very strong, but feminine. She wasn’t beautiful, but physically in shape. She was very demanding and told this fellow he wasn’t trying hard enough. She said to him, “If you cannot apply yourself take a minute go into the change room and put these on! And she gave him a pair of panties. The guy was embarrassed. I thought this was over the top in expectations of the trainer. 30 2

    Dreamed I was prophesying. 31 3

     

    Had a dream about assessing people’s health and finding surprises about who was susceptible to sickness. Some looked healthier than others, but got sick easier. Of these, some got healthier quicker then others. I thought, WOW, humans are fascinating. Energy is heavily influenced by thought and feelings. Energy changes bring on health or sickness. It is amazing how people can look so much the same, and yet are so vastly different from each other, because of ebb and flow of energy in them. 32 2

    Woke up with a dream. The trailer I had behind the car got lose and ran down a street. I was praying that no car would come and collide with it. It did not happen, The trailer then came to a gentle stop in a room. All I had to do is fix a bunch of curtains that had come off their curtain rods. It was quite a tedious job and although there were people around me, nobody helped. Somebody made a remark that the trailer could have hit two little girls but I thought that was quite far fetched. 36 12

    Dream, I went to New York, which was on a lake in my dream. Around the lake there were steps and expensive curtains, it was like a big hotel complex. The air was very polluted and there was a red glow in the sky. I didn’t dare to go very far because I was scared that the air would choke me. I stayed inside and felt a bit trapped 39 2

    Woke up with a dream. I looked at a house that I was interested in (to buy?) and noticed that one room had been badly damaged by bugs. They had eaten holes into the building materials. I felt pretty bad about that. An adjacent room also in poor repair looked promising as a laundry room. I imagined turning that room into nothing but a laundry room. 40 2

     

    There was a closet in my home, a big one, and I had a big cow and a big tiger in it. I loved them and I hugged them, kiss them. They were also very passionate towards me. The tiger were hugging me and licking my face. My dad were there and he said: “thanks god they are female otherwise they would have kill you”. 43 10

    Sensations

    Dullness was a common sensation that the provers experienced, so it is not surprising that there was a need for stimulants. Provers had craving for beer and coffee even if they didn't usually drink coffee, or had aversion for coffee prior to the proving. Depleted, drained (note the language of water) together with vertigo or being lightheaded was often

    experienced before breakfast or a meal. The sensations were resolved with eating.

    Other sensations were: pinching, pulsating, cramping, like a pin prick, sore, stinging, dryness or dust in eyes, brain loose and moving back and forth, bitterness, tingling, as if burned, numbness, something stuck, rawness, tickling, chilly.

    Discoveries of the proving

    Proving symptoms from current data include mental symptoms such as difficult concentration, slowness, and difficulties in decision making and a deep sense of calmness that evolved into a sense of dullness, ennui and depression. Probably one of the most popular symptoms experienced was the deep sense of confidence and the “can do” attitude that came with it. Often the negative aspects of a remedy are noted, but the more positive symptoms are also part of the remedy picture.

    Physical symptoms experienced by a number of provers clearly point out the use of the remedy to treat nausea, loss of appetite, stomach problems, weight gain, constipation, vertigo and lightheaded-ness, sudden flashes of heat that resembled the typical menopausal hot flashes.

    The proving showed a strong affinity for mucus membranes with a number of symptoms associated with dryness and with swelling, with pain in the extremities and in the kidneys.

    The First Nation in BC used Devil's claws as teas or poultices or in steaming, (Lantz et all, 2004) to treat tuberculosis, in the proving there is a hint of the possible Tubercular miasm with the sensations of being trapped, the need for space and being better in open air. Further provers experienced a dry ticking cough that was intermittent and there was blood in the sputum, such sputum hint towards tuberculosis.

    Skin symptoms a red rash – the First Nation used Devil's club for measles – and a vesicular eruption that resembled Herpes zoster eruptions.

    The spines of Devil's club break easily and in bed themselves causing typical infection signs and symptoms, local heat, inflammation, pain, and redness, eventually a pimple is formed with a green / whitish head that eventually erupts. The provers did not experience such symptoms but while preparing the plant material I got stung by the plant 3 times and observed the symptoms reported. The infection is supposed to be caused by Staphylococcus sp. If this plant is capable in causing such infection by definition – Like cures like – it might be able to cure Staphylococcus sp. infections.
