Robinia Nicotiana Liquid
But what is really the underlying cause of acid reflux? Conventional medicine rarely asks “why” in a meaningful way, beyond describing cellular and biochemical phenomena. Hyperacidity and acid reflux occur when our soul squeezes the body too tightly or aggressively, a process we are only partially aware of. Because of our hectic, pressured lives, full of sensory overload and desire to accomplish many things, the kidneys and stomach become chronically stressed.
With this in mind, let’s examine the ingredients of Robinia Nicotiana, all of which relate to overreach of conscious soul processes into unconscious vegetative life processes, the origin of acid reflux:
Robinia pseudoacacia, or black locust, is a very hard, yet slender and graceful tree covered with spines. The leaves and especially the bark have toxic alkaloids and substantial quantities of protein (legume family). Although the wood is tough and heavy, Robinia shows its sensitivity by folding up its leaves at night and during wet weather. The many white flowers and compound leaves that are green above and pale below, add to its attractive appearance. We see hardness and sensitivity, a certain beauty but also toxicity.
Strychnos nux-vomica, or strychnine tree, is native to India and southeast Asia. Like black locust, the wood is hard and dense. The seeds used in the remedy are hard and flat, with a soft, wooly coating. The homeopathic remedy picture shows overloading of the nerves: senses hyper-alert and irritable, with general nervousness.
Nicotiana tabacum, or tobacco leaf, was included in Robinia Nicotiana to calm the excessive effect of the sensitivity organism on blood vessels (rather than predominantly nerves as in Nux vomica). Nicotine and tobacco inhaled in smoking temporarily calm the emotions while simultaneously increasing heart rate, leading to subconscious anxiety and a vicious circle. The homeopathic dose of Nicotiana is intended to relieve the emotional distress from undigested life experiences, which lead to hyperacidity and acid reflux.
Argentum nitricum, or silver nitrate, is a mineral combination of silver and nitric acid. While silver is related to the world of life forces (hence its use in potentized form to treat overabundance of life in infections), nitric acid is a fuming, smoking, aggressive substance related to the air (79% nitrogen). Once again, a substance is chosen for the remedy that mediates between the soul world (air) and the life or etheric world (water), between conscious and sub-conscious functions whose balance is upset in acid reflux.
Natrium phosphoricum, or sodium hydrogen phosphate – sodium is the extracellular electrolyte that maintains osmotic pressure in the organism. When combined with the “light-bearing” phosphorus it addresses our individual ego that can become too enmeshed in earthly, emotional complications and lose clear perspective.
In summary, the “combination of opposites” in Robinia Nicotiana creates polarities where we ourselves are challenged to establish a healthy balance. Unlike the conventional drug process which “does something to us” without our participation, here we are called to engage in our own healing process.
