The Mimosa Pudica appears to be helpful to human condition only to a certain extent. It could certainly be employed in spinal cord injury and would likely improve the body’s natural ability to utilize the amino acids that are used to build various important components as part of the nerve process. If sufficient fats are present, we see an acceleration of the rebuilding process that would likely take place under the influence of this plant. It is difficult to say, however, in which ways Mimosa pudica would be best. For some individuals, particularly those with a more spiritual orientation, it is going to be more helpful in homeopathic or flower essence or other applications, where as those who need it at the more gross physical level, particularly individuals with tendency to counteract any vibrational remedy by use of coffee, strong herbs, garlic, etc. will benefit more from the physical.  However, it is not so much the actual chemical agents that are helping, it is the vibration, the attunement to the natural condition of attunement with Earth that is being transferred. 

Indeed, for many individuals, this is as if a whole different context – here is another way to build nerves. It is presenting this issue, so to speak, particularly at the higher vibrational level to the person. In addition to this, some of the chemical agents will be helpful to some individuals, and we see little harm in its use for most people.
           Many people with a physical disability, such as spinal cord injury (SCI) or dysfunction, have no escape from a life filled with medications. Although clearly providing benefits, these drugs often have side effects and have no proof of safety or effectiveness if taken in combination. How many problems are aggravated by overmedication?  What is going to happen if life-saving antibiotics are no longer effective because of their continued misuse?.To reduce the medication burden associated with spinal cord injury or dysfunction, we need alternatives that augment body defenses. Homeopathy - a holistic therapy - is one such alternative medicine.
