The Source Medicine TIPPs System

Treating underlying Toxins, Infections, Physical and Psychological traumas (TIPPs) to resolve chronic disease.

Background and Cultural Differences

Differences in using (PC) Source Resonances in rural, traditional cultures and western/westernised cultures.

The TIPPs system was developed when the original PC remedies, developed in Africa, were brought to the west and it was found that the needs of western populations are significantly different.

Traditional cultures: Our understanding is that traditional cultures are more rooted in their true essence and have higher fundamental vitality. The dominant health issues are epidemic diseases and traumas and the response to Source Resonances (PC Remedies) in traditional cultures is dramatic, effective and consistent over time.

Western cultures: In the west the dominant health issues are chronic diseases, in a population with higher levels of inherited and acquired effects of toxins, trauma and miasms (including the effects of generations of vaccination exposure) and lower fundamental vitality. Another significant issue in many western populations is the inherited effects of diaspora ('the dispersion or spread of any people from their original homeland') leading to a fundamental loss of roots (see Loss of Roots worksheet). We therefore inquired into the events that precipitate disease processes in order to address the issues at a more fundamental level, out of which developed the Source Medicine TIPPs system for practitioners and the self-help CLEANSE Wellbeing Programme. CLEANSE can also be used by practitioners as a simple template for applying our TIPPs approach with individual patients or groups.

We have recently developed the SR Tool: Western Catalyst - Dissolving Western Entrancement and Attachment; Wakening and Attuning to Universal Life Essence, to be used as a synergist to help westerners assimilate the effects of the resonances. This tool is currently being researched by our Research Network.

We have also developed a Vitality Map and Protocol Chart to guide practitioners about recommended treatment approaches in different countries.

The TIPPs system

Whereas classical homeopathy looks for the remedy picture, the Source Medicine TIPPs System looks for the events that precipitate disease and addresses this directly. This approach is compatible with the principles and practices of classical homeopathy, and is currently being further developed and researched through the Source Medicine Research Network.

The basic concept of the TIPPs System is to focus the case-taking on the personal and family (epigenetic) history, going back at least two generations, looking for the following:

Asking about the jobs, interests and life experiences of parents and grandparents can help to identify potentially significant toxins, infections, physical and psychological traumas. Pay particular attention to:

  • family history of infectious diseases;
  • experiences of the World Wars;
  • toxins, especially heavy metals.

With toxins it is important to investigate possible exposure to toxins, especially heavy metals. One useful question is to ask about your patient’s relationship to knives. If this elicits a response there is likely to be heavy metal toxicity. This can then be explored in depth in their family history and through using material medica keynotes.

When considering psychological traumas, reference to the ACE Score of Adverse Childhood Experiences may help to identify significant early events.
