Chamomilla – The Homeopathic Remedy

Many people drink Chamomile tea, especially at night, to help them relax so they may have a better night’s sleep. The homeopathic remedy Chamomilla is often used for children who are teething. I want to talk more about the homeopathic remedy Chamomilla.

Three People Who Benefited From Using The Homeopathic Remedy Chamomilla

Recently I gave Chamomilla to a woman who was having pain in her right ear. She had had some pain in her temple, forehead, and the lower right side of her head a week before. The pain settled in the right ear. It was pulsating and throbbing. It was not a constant pain, but when she did experience it, she found it difficult to do other activities because the pain genuine-chamomile-58642__480was so present. Over a two day period, she took several doses of the homeopathic remedy Chamomilla, the pain diminished and then finally went away.

Years ago, I gave Chamomilla to a young woman who felt very angry. If someone said something to her that seemed like an insult or she thought was rude, she felt very hurt and angry. It was if it was a blow to her, not a physical one, but an emotional blow. She did very well with the homeopathic remedy Chamomilla.

I mentioned above about a teething baby being helped with Chamomilla. The baby may be biting because the pain and the discomfort felt in their gums is unbearable. The biting actually may ease the pain, and may be the way he is expressing anger from being in such intense pain.

Chamomilla

Chamomilla is a plant from the Compositae Family. The homeopathic remedies Arnica Montana and Calendula are also in this plant family, and have the same sensitivity. This sensitivity is to being injured, experiencing a trauma, feeling bruised and sore, feeling abused, and feeling beaten. The sensitivity can be experienced both physically and emotionally. The second case I give shows how someone would feel injured on an emotional level.

Here are links to posts I have written on Arnica Montana and Calendula. These posts talk about the use of these two remedies for first aid situations.

Characteristics Of The Homeopathic Remedy Chamomilla

Here are a few characteristics of Chamomilla that would guide a homeopath to choosing this remedy for someone:

  • unbearable pain
  • pains are throbbing, sharp like a sudden attack
  • capricious -wants something now, and then when it is given doesn’t want it anymore
  • extremely angry, irritable – difficult to be around,¬† may not want to be touched
  • wants to be carried
  • worse at night, from cold air
  • better from cold applications
  • may have a fever
  • one check is red and hot, and the other one is pale and cool
  • stool is like a chopped spinach consistency

*******

I write about Chamomilla because it is used very often by people, as a tea and as a homeopathic remedy. By giving you some information about the homeopathic remedy, you can start to see that each homeopathic remedy has their own unique picture, just as each of us do.

Unwanted Behaviors – Such As Biting

On the stats page of my blog, there is a section labelled Search Terms. What is listed there are googled inquires that have led someone to my blog. Recently, someone had googled “biting from anger homeopathy”. I felt that this was an important topic to write about: biting and other unwanted behaviors.

Biting And Unwanted Behaviors

The person who googled this concern may be the person themselves, a family member or a friend of someone who is biting. It could be a child or an adult who is manifesting this behavior. The person could be biting themselves, and/or biting others. This could happen when they are feeling sand-spiralangry, and is expressed outwardly at another person or expressed inwardly, by biting themselves. There may be other emotions, behaviors and symptoms associated with this behavior.

You can see that it is not just simply one thing – someone biting or someone feeling angry. This behavior, like any behavior that is unwanted, obsessive, or uncontrollable, is a piece or a part of the whole picture of the person. Everything is connected, making up the totality and the whole of the person.

These are some other behaviors that may be unwanted, obsessive and uncontrollable:

  • biting, kicking, hitting, pinching
  • self-destructive behaviors: cutting, over eating, not eating enough, bulimia
  • obsessive/compulsive behaviors – washing hands, checking locks and other things excessively, hording

Two Examples Of Biting

To continue the thought that it isn’t simply one thing, biting or being angry, here are two examples of biting and anger. You can see how different these two are. Biting or unwanted behaviors could be an expression of anger, fear, a way of defending oneself and a response to pain. For example:

  • A teething baby could be biting because of the pain and discomfort felt in their gums. The biting actually may ease the pain. The baby may be expressing anger from being in such intense pain.
  • A child feels threatened, and feels they need to lash out and defend themselves. This lashing out may manifest in biting.

Homeopathy

To address the second part of the inquiry – “biting from anger homeopathy” – yes, homeopathy can be very helpful when someone is biting and/or someone is feeling very angry. When I meet with a patient, I am finding out about what bothers them, which is what brought them in to homeopathy. In this case, I would want to know how the person experiences biting and feeling anger, along with finding out more about them as a whole, such as other symptoms, fears, dreams, how they respond to things happening in their life and more. All of these are pieces that make up a whole picture.

From this whole picture, a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what they are experiencing. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process.

I want to say that homeopathy is not counseling, therapy nor any kind of psychological treatment. Homeopathy is its own form of holistic medicine, looking at each person as the individual they are. Homeopathy and counseling/therapy can work very well together, helping and healing the individual. Each of these two healing modalities addresses and helps a person in different ways.

I would be happy to talk to you or a loved one who may be experiencing biting or any other unwanted behaviors. Contact me here on the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

What The Body Feels And Says

“The whole body weeps when it is invaded.”

This line is from the book BUDDHA IN THE WAITING ROOM written by Paul Brenner. MD. When I read this line, I cried. It touched something in me personally, and I think it probably does for other people as well.

This line is in a paragraph in which Dr. Brenner is writing about the implications someone¬† trees-1767119__480would experience after having surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. It could also be when someone has experienced any kind of abuse, emotional damage, physical pain or trauma, an on going physical condition, mental pain and more. It pertains to any kind of “invasion”.

What struck me about this line, was not the being invaded, but that the body weeps. To me it meant that the body, the whole being of the person, has some recall, memory, or retention of something happening to it. That even though time has passed, and the person is doing well in their life and in their health, there may be some lingering of the past, and is expressed in symptoms, discomfort, pain, emotions, anything. To me this is what the weeping means.

The weeping may be a way of asking for help, for help in a healing, a deep healing at the root cause. The weeping is saying, hey, I am still here, listen to me, listen to what I have to say, and help me heal.

There are a lot of different healing modalities. The best are the ones that resonate with you. And possibly that means resonates with the weeping, to help to hear what the body is saying.

If I can be of any help, homeopathically, please contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

And I suggest Dr. Paul Brenner’s book BUDDHA IN THE WAITING ROOM.

Why Do I Practice Homeopathy?

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I feel that people are looking for a natural, non-invasive, deep healing modality. They may be tired of not feeling well, and tired of taking medications that are not really healing. And they want to be better.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It is to offer a healing modality that truly is healing. Healing at the root cause from which umbrella-1521492_1280the symptoms, and the discomfort and the pains come from.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

Because I see as people heal and are doing better, they are more at ease to be fully themselves, and are no longer being limited by a physical symptom or an emotional stuckness.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I see people as they heal, through the help of homeopathy, being able to use other healing modalities in a much more constructive and positive way.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It makes sense to me. It resonates with me. It is a WOW to me.

A Rainy Day – Slowing Down, Taking Care Of Yourself

As I am writing this post, it is raining. It is an ongoing, hard rain, and it is windy. I have opened the patio door so I can hear the rain more clearly. I like the sound a lot. I watch the drops, or the rush of the water on the ground. It is raining so hard, that there is puddling on the ground. I am very happy that I put a drain in my backyard several years ago. The water now empties at the very bottom of the retaining wall, and is no longer a threat of pushing the retaining wall over with its great force, as it did before I put in the drain. The water still does pool, but it eventually goes down the drain.

(When you read this post, it will probably be sunny and clear skies, our usual San Diego weather.)

Staying Put

I like rainy days. In a way, when it rains, it makes me slow down, a bit. Not rushing out to do some errands or go somewhere, but rather just stay put.

Staying put. Slowing down. Not operating from a kind of energy that is “I have to get this done or that done”, almost like in a frenzy. Instead, taking time, slowing down, listening to myself, and taking care of me.

Taking Care Of Oneself

Taking care of oneself. I wrote about this in my last post, primarily in regards to the flu. wooden-heartsTaking care of oneself is something that we can do all the time, not just during the flu season, nor when we are stressed, nor during the holiday season, nor when it is a rainy day, but all the time.

Taking care of ourselves shows up in some many ways. I could list some of them, but you know which ones are specific to you. I think really ultimately, it comes down to respecting ourselves, listening to ourselves, and seeing what we need and want.

Putting a drain in my backyard was taking care of myself.

Homeopathy To Heal

I am happy to see that some of my patients experience homeopathic care as an important part of their health and well being care. They may also be under treatment using western medicine, nutritional and vitamin care, chiropractic treatments, counseling/therapy, herbal medicine, and massage, to name a few healing modalities. Homeopathy has become a very added component of their taking care of themselves.

If I can be of help in regards to taking care of yourself or a loved one, I invite you to contact me here or through my website, www.homeopathytoheal.com

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season. Take good care of yourself.

Flu Season, Again – Taking Care Of Ourselves

This is the time of year that I usually write a post about the flu. We actually have not heard too much about how this flu season is looking. That doesn’t really matter. There are ways to help care for ourselves and our family as a whole if we do come down with the flu, or experience lingering affects from the flu. Homeopathy can help with all of these.

Previous Posts About The Flu

Here are links to prior posts that I have written about the flu:

  • Gives some homeopathic remedies that are helpful if someone comes down with the flu. (Click here)
  • Talks about taking care of yourself, and the history of using homeopathy during the flu season, specifically mentioning the 1918-1919 flu epidemic. (Click here)
  • Talks about how some people may move through the flu fine, but experience lingering affects afterwards, and how homeopathy is helpful. It is called “never been well since”. (Click here)
  • Talks about homeopathic care before, during and after pregnancy. If a pregnant woman comes down with the flu, homeopathy can be very helpful.¬† (Click here) (Unfortunately, it is becoming more common for pregnant women to be given the flu vaccine. The vaccine used to not be given at all at this time, knowing it was dangerous for the mother and the developing fetus.)

Taking Care Of Ourselves

Changes are happening all the time in our lives. We have losses – a loved one dies, a marriage ends, an expectation isn’t met, being fire from a job. We have new beginnings – a new home, a new educational program, a new job. Even the changes of the seasons and the time can affect us. It is okay that we are affected by these changes. It is life happening.

When these these changes happen, how do we respond to them? How do we react? cup-of-tea-and-honeyHow do we go through these events/changes? How do we listen to ourselves? How do we talk to ourselves? What do we do? What do we not do? Do we ask for help, if needed? How do we take care of ourselves during this time?

If we are not in our best health, we may be more susceptible to coming down with the flu. Taking care of ourselves can involve different kinds of healing modalities, walks, pursing activities we love, eating good food, sleeping well, exercising, laughing, being with people we love, and more. When we take good care of and respect ourselves, we are in a better place to care for our loved ones.

It Is Okay

Know that it is okay to get sick. It is okay to have the flu.

In a way if we do become ill, with the flu, it is often our body saying, “Hey, I am making you rest so you can take of yourself. Slow down.” And the body has a wonderful ability to heal itself, of taking care.

Our Triggers

Events happen in our lives. Events that are personal, political, and global. These events may trigger emotions, feelings, thoughts, behaviors, symptoms, physical states, and memories. Our buttons have been pushed. It is natural that this happens.

As we experience this, we may in a way take a look at what is happening. How do we feel? What are our responses, and what are we responding to? Are we reacting to the present or to the past? Does this event remind us of something or someone that we know? What actions or no actions do we take?

We may be just affected for a brief time, and then feel better. Or the affect may linger, and balls-knocking-into-ballswe are not able to move forward at all. We are stuck, with whatever has been triggered within us, affecting us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This is a good time to take care of ourselves.

In My Practice

As a patient tells me what is bothering them, often a physical complaint, I hear about events and relationships that have happened to them in their life. They may be talking about present or post relationships or events. No matter when this occurred in time, it still is affecting them, and triggering them.

As the person is talking and describing their experience, specific words and language are used, often accompanied with hand gestures. The person’s words/language/hand gestures represent what and where their sensitivity lies, and how they experience their world. In a way I am learning the person’s language, which helps me to better understand their world, how they experience what happens to them, and what it is that bothers them about their symptoms.

Two Women

One woman is experiencing pains in her neck and shoulder. The pains are almost all the time. She accepts the pains, and has experienced them most of her life. She talks about an old relationship. In some ways this relationship is still present because of her connection to this person through other people. Recently there has been more of a connection with this person. This has been a trigger. What she says and shows helps guide me as a homeopath in selecting the homeopathic remedy that will be healing for her. The homeopathic remedy will be for her emotional state, and for the neck and shoulder pains she experiences. Homeopathy treats the whole person.

Another woman has a flare up of an abscess in scar tissue. This seems to happen when she is feeling angry at others, at herself, and/or what happens in her life. She takes it out on herself, feeling very angry about herself and her life. Often some event or interaction will happen, triggering something within her, and then manifesting in both emotional (anger) and physical (the abscess) symptoms. Since using the homeopathic remedy that is similar to her, she has been noticing these triggers when they balance-15712__180occur, and has become much more in touch with her feelings and responses. She has become more proactive in her self care. The flare ups in the scar tissue are becoming less severe, and are taking less time to heal. Homeopathy is stimulating a deep healing within her.

Our Triggers

When an event occurs in our life, it may be a trigger to past or present relationships, circumstances, events, behaviors, feelings and more. (I think for some people this past election may have been a trigger for some people.) When we do experience a trigger, it is a good time to help ourselves. The affects we are experiencing at this time are more on the surface and more prominent, and are therefore more readily expressed and available, making it a good time to start a healing process.

Are you being triggered?

I invite you to contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.

And to all my American friends and readers, thank you for reading my blog, and I wish you a wonderful and yummy Thanksgiving!
