HOMEOPATHIC GREEN JADE
The homeopathic remedy is made from green jade, which is particularly valued, as quite rare.
The name “jade” is a more recent one, derived from the old Spanish hijada, which means “side, flank” of the human body. In ancient times, the name was nephrite , from the Greek name for kidney.
The main medicinal use of jade was in fact to heal kidneys: the ancient Egyptians called jade “kidney of Adonis”.
In homeopathy, Jade has more of an affinity to throat, lungs and heart.
It is comparable to Sepia, especially in menopausal women: the exhaustion and “can’t be bothered” state. Sepia is more triggered by family members, however.
Nat Mur is also complementary to Jade: someone who is unwilling to get in touch with their emotions, closing themselves in cynicism (“jaded”), because they have seen so much of the world.
From Jeremy Sherr’s proving:
Jade is beyond earthly riches. Considered more valuable than diamonds and gold, in Chinese mythology it symbolises the gateway between heaven and earth. Its alleged ability to preserve the power of life after death, literally bestowing immortality, makes it even more invaluable. I decided to prove it following the provings of Adamas (Diamond) and Sapphire, so as to extend my study of gem stones.
Jade is found in many regions of our planet, however it is associated mainly with China, and is regarded by the Chinese as the most noble of all gems. Jade carvings can be used to trace almost the entire history of this country. In 1997 I visited China, where I saw a jade exhibition of breathtaking beauty, and was introduced to an expert on jade. I procured a small, but expensive, piece of jadeite, egg-shaped and stunningly attractive. I loved the deep green shade and had a longing to dive into the depths of its mysteries.
The proving, which took place with Dynamis UK, brought out the lavish aspect of jade, indulging in the finer things in life: champagne baths, expensive concubines, luxury foods, fun and laughter. Yet it had its dark sides. The jade route from Burma to China is filled with gambling, slavery, danger, drug addiction and AIDS. The proving bought up the image of the Norse trickster god, Loki, powerful and ‘up to no good’ mischief. Ancient blood lines, extended families, murder, deception and a jaded sensation are only some aspects of the complex picture. It will take time to form a coherent totality.
