Traumeel: How This Homeopathic Treatment Surprised Me
The first time I tried it was when my mother had a heart attack. She had been having chest pains for quite some time.
When she went into cardiac arrest, her life support system stopped working and she died shortly after. At the hospital, they gave me a bag with some ice cubes and told me to take them every hour or so until I felt better. They didn’t give me any instructions on how to use it or anything else. I just took what they gave me and kept taking them until I got home. My mom would have loved this stuff!
I’ve used it ever since, but only once before in my life. That was during one of those terrible winter storms last year when the power went out for days at a time and I couldn’t get gas or food because there wasn’t much going on around here anyway.
I remember thinking, “If I could just keep this stuff in my body all day long, then maybe I wouldn’t feel cold.” So I did. And then when the storm finally passed, it was like everything clicked. My whole world changed.
Then recently, while reading a book called The Miracle Worker by Robert Whitaker (a doctor who specializes in homeopathy), I learned something very interesting about traumeel: It’s supposed to make you feel good too! I just couldn’t believe it.
So I started looking into it a little more and did some research online (like I’m doing now).
And do you know what I found?
There are all these people who have used this stuff for various purposes, and what they had to say about it was incredible!
I HAD TO TRY IT FOR MYSELF.
So I went to my local health food store and looked up the stuff on their computer. I was really surprised at how much information there was on it.
They even had a brochure with a description, pictures, and a list of possible side effects! I had never seen that before.
The first thing I noticed (and everyone else too I guess) is that the stuff tastes really bad. Seriously, it’s one of the worst tasting substances I’ve ever had in my mouth!
It’s not even so much the taste itself… it’s just that it lingers and lingers and lingers… I remember gagging the first few times I took it. Taking it with orange juice helps a little, but I’ve been trying to find other ways of taking it because my throat still gets irritated if I do that for too long.
Anyway on the plus side, the stuff seems to be working pretty well! I don’t notice a major difference all the time, but every once in awhile I’ll feel “different.” There have been a few times when I’ve been doing something and all of a sudden my body feels like its plugged into an electric outlet!
It’s a pretty amazing feeling. I also feel unusually happy on most days now too.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep taking it though. I’m starting to get worried about what long-term effects it might have.
There are some days when I wake up and I feel just plain “off.” I’m still able to function and everything, but it’s like my body is… I don’t know how to explain it. It’s like something is sapping all my energy. I’ll be fine once I get going, but those mornings are rough.
In fact, I feel that way right now. Guess I’ll take some more.
Anyway, I thought I’d share my experience with you. If you have any of your own, I’d be more than happy to hear them.
I’m sure there is a wealth of information out there waiting to be discovered.
By the way, NO ONE can know about this! I could get in a lot of trouble if anyone finds out that I’m using this stuff.
It’s against the law to take anything without a prescription, and it’s probably not good for me either. So please keep this to yourself.
Anyway, I’d better go. There’s a lot of research I still want to do on this stuff.
I hope you continue to keep in touch.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what you said last time we talked. You’re right: I’ve changed A LOT since high school, and a lot of that has to do with my experiences in college.
I guess in some ways I am trying to relive my high school years, but doing it in a much smarter and safer way.
I’ve also been thinking about what happened with the girl from last time. You’re right about that too: It wasn’t love and it was just biology.
What I experienced was nothing compared to the stories I’ve read on the internet (and some that you’ve told me). I mean, yeah it was fun and all, but I think I need to experience “real” love. You know, the kind of stuff you see in the movies. The kind of love that lasts a lifetime.
I think I might be homosexual.
No, this is not a joke! I’ve been having dreams and thoughts about guys for a while now.
I can’t get into it too much since this letter is already long enough, but I’ve been doing a lot of research too.
I just don’t feel like I’m ready to come out yet since I feel like it might be better if I had a boyfriend first. Maybe then people won’t harbor the idea that I’m gay if I already have a girlfriend (who is also gay).
I was wondering if you could help me.
I know what you’re thinking: that I should just do it naturally, but I’ve tried that and it’s not working! Plus, if I can get a head start on finding a boyfriend, then maybe the transition into college won’t be so hard.
I don’t know anyone at this school, and meeting people in the real world is much different than meeting people on the internet (don’t ask me how I know). So I thought that maybe you could make a few (fake) accounts on one of those online dating sites and set me up with someone.
I’ve always heard that there are a lot of gay people in that community, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find someone.
Here are some things I’m looking for:
He needs to be at least 21 years old.
He should be out of high school at least a year or two.
He needs to be at least 6 feet tall.
He should have a job (something with a computer is good).
As for characteristics, he can be pretty much anything. I’m sure you’ll find someone that I’ll like.
If all else fails, you can just make one up off the top of your head and send me his picture (along with his info).
I’m leaving this in your capable hands. And don’t worry, I know this is illegal, which is why nobody can find out.
I trust you, and I’ll be able to pay you back once I get a job (if you’re charging me, of course).

I’m glad to hear that you’re making progress in embracing your homosexuality! I was a little worried that you were still in denial about it.
That would be such a shame since you’re wasting some of the best years of your life!
Anyway, I’m glad you came to me for this. Of course I’ll help you with all this!
I have just the guy in mind…
You remember my friend Ryan, right?
Well, he’s not really my friend, but more like an online acquaintance. We’ve chatted a few times on an internet message board, but we’ve never met in person. I’m sure he’d love to help you out.
He’s 21 years old and is very attractive. He’s a little shorter than you (he’s like 5’8), but his other features make up for it.
Check out the enclosed picture of him.
Isn’t he dreamy?
He just got a job recently, but it’s some office job that doesn’t require much physical activity. Still, you’d be surprised how much stamina he has in that area. *wink wink*
Ryan also likes to go out clubbing and drinking with his friends on the weekends. I’m sure you two will get along very well.
As for my payment, just leave the money under your porch light. I’ll pick it up later.
Thanks a bunch!
He has a brother named Steve, but he’s a bit too old for you (he’s 29). If you’re interested though, I can put in a good word for you.

I can’t thank you enough for this! You’ve don’t so much for me, and I really appreciate it.
I’m glad to hear that our town has at least one good gay bar. I’m looking forward to going there sometime soon. Hopefully this will help me meet someone special.
I’ve put the money under my porch light as requested. Speaking of which, the guy who lives in the house across from mine was a little curious about what I was doing.
He’s new here, and is probably wondering why I’m leaving a bunch of envelopes under the light instead of the usual paper. Hopefully he doesn’t call the cops on me or anything like that.
Well, I’ll be looking forward to meeting this Ryan guy. Thanks again Gerald!

I don’t know if you’ve been following the news, but there’s been a massive manhunt for the people involved with the kidnappings that have been occurring around town. It’s been all over the news, even national news stations.
A couple of my co-workers have sons that have gone missing, and they’re worried sick about them.
I’m surprised you didn’t mention this to me before.
And how could you have kept this from me?
I thought we told each other everything. When I first moved in, you mentioned that some kid had gone missing a couple years ago, but it wasn’t anything to worry about. I had no idea that there were going to be this many cases, or that they were all connected! Jesus Christ, Gerald!
Now the cops are coming around asking questions again. Apparently they’re coming door to door trying to find out if anyone is hiding a kidnapping victim in their home.
I had to swear to them that you didn’t live here before they left. I hope they don’t come back.
Oh and thanks for putting my name on the list of people not to bother.
Can you believe that?
The cops were actually suggesting that I might be involved with the kidnappings! As if I’d ever do anything like that! You know me better than that, Gerald.
Not that I have much choice of where to live at this point. With all the negative attention this town is getting, I’m surprised property values aren’t plummeting.
Already saw one house for sale on my way home from work today. Hopefully I can hang on to this house. It would be a shame to have to move again. At least the landlord is taking care of the lawn so I don’t have to worry about that.
I’ll try to keep my ears perked for any more news about the kidnappings. It’s a small town, so I’m sure someone will know something.
You should too, for your own sake.
Hopefully I’ll hear something soon so the cops stop hassling you.

I’ve got some good news! I heard from a very reliable source that those two little boys have been found!
Apparently they were in a shed in some old lady’s backyard this whole time. The police are still trying to determine how long they were being held captive. My guess is that they were released by the kidnapper once they realized the police were getting close.
I’m glad to hear the kids are safe and that you won’t have to worry about them being in danger anymore. I’m sure their parents are relieved too.
In any case, I’ve got one less thing to worry about. Hopefully they’ll still find who was behind the other kidnappings and murders.
I can only imagine the parents of the kids that were murdered are having a hard time dealing with all of this.
Anyway, I’ll be sure to let you know if I find out anything else.
May 22, 20**
I know we talked about this last time, but I still feel the need to bring it up again.
Have you been watching the news lately?
There’s been a break in the case! They actually found another one of those cages that was used to hold the kids. Only this time there was a dead kid in it.
You can’t tell me you’re not worried about this. This guy is obviously unstable and could be targeting you next!
I’m not trying to insult you Gerald, but you know that you’re the perfect type of kid who would be targeted in a case like this. You’re young, good looking, and most importantly, alone! I hate to say this, but it could very well be someone close to you.
I’m just saying that you should try to stay alert. Keep the doors locked.
Hopefully if this guy tries to get you, you can run away.
In any case, I’m having my mom keep an extra eye on me. You should try to do something similar.
PS: I hope you’re having fun at work.
This next letter is postmarked two days after the previous one.

I’m not even going to beat around the bush. Gerald, you have to get out of there.
They just announced on the news that they found another one of those cages. This time they found it in a warehouse and it had two dead kids in it! This guy is obviously targeting children and the cops have no leads. What’s worse, is that they haven’t caught the killer yet. I don’t care what you do, but you have to get out of there before you become his next target.
I tried to call the police, but they wouldn’t tell me anything. They said that they couldn’t release any information about an ongoing investigation.
Bullcrap! They just don’t want to be blamed if something happens again! I tried calling your boss, the one with the big mustache, but he wouldn’t answer. I even went to his house, but no one was home. He probably went into hiding like you should!
I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to help you Gerald. Take care of yourself and stay safe.
You have been killed by the Slasher.
