The entire month of March is focused on the Digestive System. The third month brings Jupiter into the spotlight, and Jupiter rules over our intake of food and our ability to digest our life experiences, This week, we are studying ulcers and what essences support healing stomach ulcers. Three of our favorites are Rosewood Leaf, May Chang, and Calamus.
Stomach ulcers are formed from a sore on the inner lining of the stomach. It is usually caused by stress, and can cause burning or a gnawing pain in the abdomen. Ultimately, ulcers form from the inner feeling of not being good enough or being anxious to please others. Jupiter (3) is a people pleaser when not in balance, and this quality can tear us up inside - literally.
Rosewood Leaf is used in Chinese Medicine to help promote the flow of chi, relieve pain, help circulation, and stop bleeding. Livestock eat the branches and foliage to help support the digestive system. Rosewood is a great supporter for stomach ulcers, pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and intestinal parasites, among many other healing traits. She helps to teach us to never give our power away and to hold personal accountability for ourselves and our lives in order to find peace and trust in the process. May Chang has also been known in Chinese Medicine to help digestive issues and pain. She is an energetic harmonizer, helping to release excess negativity.
It is best to use essences for one month for every year you have had the symptoms that are being treated. For stomach ulcers, it is best to anoint every day, three times a day. Remember that homeopathy requires consistency. Anoint onto the area of concern, the tummy, neck or wrists, or on the bottoms of the feet for best results. For the average adult weight and height, five to ten drops "neat" on the skin is enough to start anointing each essence. Always do a test patch on the inner arm to make sure that the essences are not too powerful to anoint "neat" on your skin. If they bring up a healing response, then use the bottoms of the feet to anoint, and meditate on what is coming up and out emotionally for healing.
