Diospyros kaki Creveld = Tree for the world./= Honig.-apfel



[Marijke Creveld]

15 November 2005

Remedy developed 31/2 years ago.

Dream  proving  has  shown  the  following  themes:  war, death, fire,  serious  illnesses,  white  and  black,  love,  excretion  of  toxic substances  and  a  change  in  DNA.  One  could  summarise  the effects  as  helping  the  patient  to  survive  a  trauma caused  by war,  fire,  radioactivity  and  toxic  substances.  As  of  now,  I treated  over  30  patients  with

Diospyros  kaki  Creveld with positive  results.  Moreover  it  has  been  used  by  other  therapists and  medical  practitioners  to  their  satisfaction.  The  remedy  has been  prescribed 

for  people  who  experienced  mental  and physical  complaints  caused  by  a  trauma  on  account  of  war, disaster  and  burning,  complaints  following  a  fire, problems caused by chemotherapy and radiotherapy and by toxic substances (DDT).

The remedy has a positive effect upon the skin, such as lessening the itch of burns. Good results are also obtained in treating throat, nose and ear complaints, CARA problems and m:s:

The patients are often underweight. They suffer of eating disorders, self-mutilation, incest and suicidal tendencies.

There are many anxieties, nightmares about war and fire, sleeping problems, depression and a sense of loneliness. The terms 'to survive' and 'unsafe' are often used. Patterns of white and black figure repeatedly in dreams and images.

TEbook on Diospyros kaki Creveld contains the full dream proving, a botanical description, the phytotherapeutic information, its chemical compounds and its symbolism.

Moreover you will learn about the cases of ten patients. Two of these saw me about complaints caused by radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Two were fire victims, one of them from

Volendam (the homeopath Joke Smith case). Five people suffered of complaints caused by war or old fire trauma. For one patient the black-and-white theme was the occasion to

prescribe the Diospyros kaki Creveld remedy.

In the 2nd edition about 1900 additions for the repertory are also included.


Substanz derived from the (Kaki) tree in Nagasaki, surviving the plutonium bombing of the city in August 1945.

Themes from the dreamproving include survival, war, danger, rape, fire, house falling into decay, death, deformed creatures (DNA - changes), heart and love, spiritual and cosmic themes, balance and awkwardness, cleaning, moving from one house to a better one, diseases, excretion of chemical agents, trees, stones, water and the colour white.

Also included are two cases. One of the patients had complaints due to the Second World War, and the other had chemo/radio therapy six years ago and also a war trauma.

On the 9th of August 1945 the plutonium. bomb fell on Nagasaki announcing the end of 2nd World War. A large part of the city was destroyed/many people died. One tree survived

close to the epicenter of the blast.

This is the Kaki tree = a Diospyros kaki.

The power of nature to survive. even though humans have made this impossible, as a symbol of transforming evil (war) into good (a message of peace).

Plutonium, symbol of darkness is very poisonous, death. Diospyros kaki symbolizes light. It detoxifies: survival/revival.

Plutonium is the explosive element of the underworld, whilst Diospyros kaki is a fruit tree, a gift from the Gods.

In 1995 Jeremy Sherr did a proving of plutonium. In my opinion this remedy has a lot in common with Diospyros kaki Creveld.

On the 9th of august 1945 the plutonium bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. This dropping signified the end of the Second World War. The greater part of the town was destroyed, a large percentage of the population killed. Near the epicenter one tree survived the bomb: the Kaki tree, of which the official name is: Diospyros kaki. This tree managed to survive the inferno. Its power for survival renders this tree the Tree for the World.



About 6 years ago I began a search for new homeopathic remedies. I feel strongly attached to trees and because of my personal history, also to the development of this trees and the problems of this era. So I was searching for a tree with medicinal and healing properties which also was connected with world development and the problems of our time.

After a long search (sacred places) I discovered the Kaki tree in Nagasaki. The name of the tree is highly symbolic: Divine fruit for the soul during his stay on earth.

The search for this tree and remedy was a very special, moving and spiritual experience. Nothing during this search was accidental. Everything seemed predestined.

I used the root, bark and fruit of this tree to develop the homeopathic remedy: Diospyros kaki Creveld.

Everything in Nagasaki was destroyed by the enormous blast caused by the explosion, the ensuing fire and the radioactive and poisonous plutonium. Around the tree death reigned.

The survivors had to deal with severe illnesses, thick scar tissue, internal hemorrhages, boldness, cancer (leukemia).

In the following generations a high percentage of children were born with congenital anomalies.

The Kaki-tree in Nagasaki stands for the end of the Second World War, the end of the destruction, domination, rape, fleeing and death. The tree signifies survival and the beginning

of hope. With medicine made from this species of the Diospyros kaki it is possible to cure illnesses which are the result of radioactivity. The use of this remedy in the Chinese herbal

medicine makes this clear.

The remedy enhances the eliminatory processes of the body. Recent research showed the positive result of the application of the tannic acids from the fruit in the treatment of leukemia.

In the dream proving with the remedy Diospyros kaki Creveld, which I conducted in the potency 200K, the subjects of the dreams centered around the topics of survival, insecurity, danger, soldiers, rape. Also death, fire and dilapidated houses as symbol for serious illnesses, were frequent themes of the dreams. Mention was also made of a house, which was ill because of a tremendous amount of stored chemicals, expulsion of chemical so evil cannot take hold, strange and mutilated beings, love, issues of black and white, cleaning-up and balance.

Diospyros kaki Creveld has now been in use 31/2 years. I have treated around thirty patients with this remedy with good result. Also other homeopaths have been using the remedy to

their satisfaction. Diospyros kaki Creveld is indicated in cases of psychological and physical problems which are caused by a trauma as a result of war or a fire, problems resulting from chemotherapy, radiotherapy and from poisoning with chemicals.

The remedy enhances the detoxification. It has a positive influence on the skin, like diminishing the itch in the cases of burns. Also in cases with problems in the region of ears, nose

and throat, asthmatic problems and multiple sclerosis, this remedy has proved it’s self.

Diospyros is derived from: Dio = Zeus (God), and spyros = spirit / soul, or Dios = God and Pyros = fruit. Fruit of the Gods. Divine fruit. Kaki comes from Ka = soul and Ki = energy, earth.

Sharon, the only known satellite of Pluto is called Charon (in Greek mythology the ferryman of the dead) and was discovered by J. Christy.

In Japan, there used to be a deep religious connection of the Kaki with life. Kaki fruit isl given as an offering at Shinto shrines. On the family altar at New Year’s eve and on All Souls Day,

when the souls of the ancestors return to earth. At the cemetery, cooked rice is offered on Kaki leaves for the unknown and nameless dead (stillborn children).

The wood was used for cremations

The Kaki has a traditional relationship to life/death/souls of ancestors and unknown nameless dead, as is the case in wartime.

The powerful positive energy of the Diospyros kaki and its capacity for survival have met in the tree at Nagasaki. It has managed to survive the deadly destruction of the Plutonium bomb and to survive this inferno. Everything was destroyed due to the enormous atmospheric pressure, the fire and the radioactive, poisonous plutonium. There was death all around, survivors had terrible diseases: thick scar tissue, internal bleeding, loss of hair, cancer [thyroid/stomach/intestines/lungs/bone (marrow)/leukemia]/enlarged spleens, birth defects due to changes in the DNA children with malformed (too small) brains. Diospyros kaki as a species has the type of symptoms that could be the result of radio-activity.

This can be seen in the use of the Chinese herbal medicine as mentioned earlier.

The plutonium bomb and this Kaki tree both represent the end of the Second World War; the end of destruction, domination, rape, death and people trying to escape.

Plutonium the destroyer, death. Diospyros kaki Creveld survival, revival of hope.

The roots of the tree of Nagasaki are black, a greater part of the bark is black too. Under the bark is a completely white layer (cambrium?). This white layer is specific to the tree in Nagasaki. Two other trees that were researched -one in Italy and one in the Hortus in Utrecht- do not have this layer. Black and white.

The latter relates to the ancient deeply religious relationship to life of the Kaki in Japan.


The theme of war

- Main theme is about survival, feeling safe, fights/quarrels, raising the place to the ground.

- Words like: soldiers, asylum seekers.

- A Russian wants to throw a German over the railing (17th – 18th century).

- A woman who has to defend herself against the robot (interpretation: the atom bomb).

- Sexual rape with a vacuum pump; pumped air into the person after penetration (interpretation: displacement of air by the bomb).

Death after the bomb, death everywhere

- Men bearing white coffin.

- I see all kinds of statues - look like skulls.

- I saw a street named “Death to all”.

- Below, I see stone slabs usually used for tombstones.

- A crow is flying close to the ceiling in a church.

Fire: Everything is burnt away around the tree

- Firemen …. Watercannon.

- Someone set a woman’s hair on fire.

- Burning in what looks like a heart.

- I walked past a boy who touches my coat with a burning match.

- In the distance behind us there is a menacing sky. Is it a thundercloud or smoke?

Dilapidated and crumbling houses: (interpretation) as a symbol for serious diseases

- A very large and dilapidated old farm. The roof has partly come off. It was going to be rebuilt.

- A big building having been taken over by squatters. A dilapidated building with all ist windows boarded up. The wide entrance barricaded with a metal bar.

- I am, standing next to a tree with very loose bark. The bark is coming off.

Diseases and elimination of substances: (interpretation) indication of actual diseases

- Neighbour talks about her illness, Parkinsons’ disease, and the trembling of her hands. “The

farm was diseased and F. named all kinds of diseases, it was the painters’ fault”.

(Interpretation: Diseases caused by chemicals, for instance cancer caused by agricultural chemicals, asbestos, radioactive as in Chernobyl and radiotherapy (X-rays). Complaints due

to chemotherapy).

- The neighbour has no power left in her hands. Her hands were like feeble sausages.

- She pointed at the diseased spots on the farm. In the center of the farm there is a “disease”, said the neighbour and she gave it a name.

- A woman had a stool made of metal. White shiny metal of an airy substance. After this the powerful spell and adoration of the robot was broken and ended. (Interpretation: The remedy

causes heavy metals to be eliminated, which probably means that both chemicals and radioactive matter are eliminated, so freeing her of its influence).

- Rectum cancer.

Unbalanced state

- P. not in balance, ….. looses his equilibrium.

- I lost my balance, and landed on the glass.

- I tried to straighten the bedcover, but couldn’t manage it.

Cleaning, moving house, refurnishing


White coffin. White heron. White dress. White swan. White coat..White table cloth. White face with a black dangling tongue. White shiny metal. Trousers with white as basic color.

Some other themes are: trees, stones, water, floating in the air.

To illustrate this I will now describe two complete dreams.

Dream 1: Breaking the power of the robots

A 49 year old man had as theme in his dream: surviving by eliminating chemicals; battle. The end of the power and the adoration of the “robot”.

First night: there is a tree and an unknown woman, who are connected in some way or other. They were one. Later on the tree became a woman.

Second night: “Once again, it is a woman, she was a real live woman who had to stand up to a robot. Everyone - an unspecified number of people who were standing around them - were

convinced the woman would succumb, but she had no fear. She would show it the measure of her strength, she would just show him.

She proceeded to relieve herself, with the result that her stool was made of iron (metal), the power of the robot and the “adoration” spell was broken and finished.

I wrote down iron, but it might just as well have been platinum. In any case it was a shiny white metal. It wasn’t a heavy mass, it consisted of some airy substance. Everyone regarded it with admiration”. - - - - - -

Dream 2: An ailing farm

A 36 year old woman has a theme in her dreams of serious illnesses caused by chemical substances. Chemical burden; clean up / detoxify; safe; white.

“In my dream my neighbour F. told me about her illness (Parkinson’s) and the trembling of her hands. We were taking a walk in a farmstead. It was an old building with wooden beams and a somber atmosphere and

F. showed me all the spots where the farm was sick. She named all kinds of diseases (illnesses connected to paint).

H. (her husband) stood outside in a big tank – a big barrel with boiled water – spraying a toilet cleaner into it (we only use biologically degradable stuff). The other neighbour said: “ Are you going to wash your hair in that!?”.

Just before, F. had totally lost all power to use her hands, she threw her arms in the air and tried to push against a wooden beam. Her hand were like rubber sausages.

Right in the middle of this farm there is an illness, said F., and she gave it a name. Right at the end of the farm another illness lurked. I felt it was overdone to say the farm was sick and whilst she was talking about it I had the idea: “You’re the one that made it sick”.

F. wore a pair of trousers with white as its basic colour. It was raining outside”. The feeling the dream prover had, was to stay inside, that would be safer. This came from a kind of fear. The farm was dark, it had a low roof.

It felt safe to be hidden inside. - - - - -

Some physical and emotional symptoms

- Some of the provers said that after the dreamproving their sense of wellbeing was much improved. They described it as follows:

- A lot of things have been sorted out between my friends and me.

- My relationship to God became more refined. A medicine for profound transformation. Especially to heal bits that got passed on by our mother but did not quite survive the journey.

- To learn to accept all that happened in my life, then and now. It has brought me closer to my center and made me realize that all is ok. That nothing was without purpose.

An intense sense of peace in my pelvis, as if no sound existed in that spot.

- Well rested after a short night’s sleep. A sense of well being. Inner peace. - A sense of warmth in my heart (chakra) on waking.

- Delusion: As if the ceiling came down”. (This sensation was so strong that the prover ducked).

- Delusion: “I heard the tinkling of glass as if something fell over upstairs”. (Both delusions occurred upstairs).

- Limbs:bad coordination, left and right, up and down. Because of this, fingers get trapped in a door. I cut my finger, stub my fingers/toes. Drop things or end up sitting on them

Case 1: “mentally retarded” since the war

A 72 yr old woman with the following complaints. Depressed, she cries a lot. Her feelings are hurt because someone copied the way she walks (she walks with braces). She stammers

a bit. Lonely. What is the purpose of my life? I want to die because of the gossip. Cataract operation, hearing aid for both ears, leg broken in an accident (brace), high blood pressure

and palpitations. Had rickets as a child, and Tb.

She is prescribed Aurum MK. Six weeks later the depression is partially relieved.

I feel powerless. I see her 4 weeks later: depression has improved, but she keeps on talking about not feeling safe, insecurity.

I prescribe Aur: the following picture appears: a girl is wearing white socks, her legs are together she is standing on a pitch black patch of earth, with a lighter border around it.

There are some black things rising up that look like flames. She keeps on talking about security. It all started during the war. She wasn’t safe outside in the streets. She got teased at

school and at home she felt insecure because her father had a relationship with another woman. This woman came to live with them. Her brother was taken away by the Germans

during the war. This is when she started stammering. She was given a test and was labeled mentally retarded (she is certainly not retarded).

Ten months after Aurum, she is given Diospyros kaki Creveld MK.

At first she is very tired. She cried a lot on the 1st day. After that she is calmer, more collected. A month later she feels much brighter. Her depression has leveled off. She feel less threatened and insecure. Stammering much improved. She has defend herself in a normal way in various situations. Her energy is much improved.

4 months after intake Diospyros kaki Creveld everything is still fine. Her frightening image of standing there in her white socks on the earth, is a bit better, but is still there. She does not like to be alone.

Diospyros kaki Creveld MK is repeated.

After two weeks she feels much better. She has had a vision: there is a hole behind her, she fell into it headfirst. She did not know where she was. It was not a nasty experience.

Since then the vision of the girl with white socks is gone.

Consultation one year after taking Diospyros kaki Creveld the first time: weakness in the muscles of her back for four months, resulting in walking difficulties. Due to this she was depressed and cried for a week. After a week this improved. Doctor would like to operate. She does not want that and discussed it with the doctor in a good manner. She is not

depressed anymore and sleeps well.

She says: “ I would like to live to a hundred years old. I hope to experience a lot of things yet. I am learning a lot at the moment.” Untidiness does not bother her so much now.

She has bought a small table so she can start painting in watercolours. She says:” I always needed others, now I realize I can do it on my own.” She says she has become more bitchy.

This tells me she has become more assertive.

She does not want any more homeopathic treatment for the weakened back-muscles. She says she wants to achieve that by doing excercises.

Was prescribed on:

1. wartrauma

2. insecurity

3. white (socks) and black (the earth).

Case 2: Tired since radio-/chemo therapy.

Woman, 58 years old, married, two grown-up children. She looks very tired, her cheeks are hollow and she looks yellow. She wears dark glasses and has a strong odour that you sometimes find in cancer patients.

She has been exhausted for years now ever since radio- and chemotherapy. She is irritated; can find no peace. Seven years ago she had one breast partly removed, because of breast cancer. One year later it had reoccurred on both sides. She has had six weeks of radio therapy. The cancer has been removed by surgery including the glands in the armpits, followed by an experimental kind of chemotherapy that took ten days in the course of several months. Ever since then she is exhausted, her hair is thinning out, she is deaf to high tones, has numbness in her feet, vertigo (her balancing organ is damaged). The joint of her thumbs and knee are worn out, melanoma on her leg (was removed three years ago). For years she refused to wear white socks, as they reminded her of wearing them to the operating- theatre.

History: Tonsils removed as a baby. At six, inflammation of the middle ear. At twenty-two cyst on her ovaries. At thirty-six uterus removed due to heavy menses. At thirty-nine hernia operation (right leg). She is very compassionate and is always helping others. Never allows herself any rest. Doesn’t complain. She is the youngest. The child born before her died. Their were some miscarriages before her birth. After she was born, they lived close to a railway track, that was frequently attacked by the Germans: “I was in a pram in the garden. It was hit. During a pause in the shooting they took me out of the pram. After this we were evacuated with my grandparents and with Jewish fugitives we were sheltering.”

Prescription: 5x Diospyros kaki Creveld 10 MK once a week.

Six weeks later: I observed that she looked less yellow, more pink, less exhausted. She is more active. She says: I distribute my energy more evenly, I reduce the number of tasks I take on. She doesn’t think her energy is any better. Is more easy going and does not allow herself to be rushed by others, less agited, sleeps better. Numbness of feet, deafness and vertigo unchanged.

Prescription: 30 x Diospyros kaki Creveld 30K every other day.

Two and a half months later (four months after the first prescription). The yellow complexion and the odour have disappeared. Her energy is much better. She says: “The hurried feeling has gone. I can read a book again.”

She undertakes more activities with her husband, sleeps better. Says: “Energy level is the same. Numbness feet, hearing and vertigo are the same.”

Prescription: once a month Diospyros kaki Creveld MK.

Nine months after firth prescription she says: ”Energy is fair.” Faster recovery when she has a dip in her energy-level. Complexion continues to be good. Lately others have been saying she looks well.

Twelve months after first prescription: she looks fine, her energy level keeps on getting better.

Quite soon after repeating a remedy, she feels her energy get a bit better.

Was prescribed on:

1. physical burden due to radio and chemo therapy,

2. war-trauma

3. white (socks)

With the dreamproving the picture of Diospyros kaki Creveld is not complete, the research is still going on. I am thinking of its use as a remedy for war trauma in the first, second and third generations.

Also if it came up in dreams and images.

Trauma caused by the occurrences like the fireworks explosion of Enschede and the fire in Volendam in the Netherlands and the event on the eleventh of September in New York.

Cancer, leukemia, that can be traced back to a radioactive source or other poisoning, Tchernobyl, asbestos, Balkan war-syndrome (war – uranium – leukemia), the negative results of chemo- or radiotherapy.

In the meantime 15 months of practical experience with this remedy has been gathered. This remedy has been prescribed by my colleagues and myself with positive results.

Diospyros kaki Creveld was given to people who had complaints due to war or fire trauma. These can be due to psychological or physical scars due to the disaster. These can occur in the first second or third generation or can be experienced through reincarnation. We also have the first good results concerning the people who had radio/chemo therapy. In their dreams, visions and fears, there is a theme concerning white (and black).

Two of these cases are included in this article. One of the patients had complaints due to the war, and the other had chemo/radio therapy six years ago and also has war trauma.
