A Personal Post – I Love Homeopathy

This is a personal post.

I love homeopathy.

I get discouraged at times. Homeopathy is challenging. My job is to understand the suffering of the patient, and then match it with the similar, in the form of a homeopathic remedy. It is LIKE CURES LIKE (Law of Similars). This is so, whether in a first aid situation (an insect bite), an acute condition (an ear infection), or a chronic condition (reactions to vaccines or an injury, chronic pain and fatigue, anxiety and other ongoing, chronic health issues.)

In my practice, I continually see how homeopathy helps people in their health, and that they are doing and feeling better. When I see this happen, it brings me back to the thought that there is such a need for homeopathy. I say to myself at this time, I love homeopathy! I love that I practice homeopathy. I love that homeopathy is available to people. I love that I can contribute to people’s health. And I love learning more about homeopathy.

Thank You

A big thank you to all of you who read this post, and posts that I have written in the past. It shows me that you are wanting, and are open to having choices for your health care, and that you are open to homeopathy.

If you want to know more about homeopathy, Amy Lansky wrote a wonderful book titled THE IMPOSSIBLE CURE.

My Recent Experience With A Doctor – One Of The Difference Between Allopathic And Homeopathic Medicine

Recently, I had an annual exam with a new doctor.  I wanted to get acquainted with a doctor, so if in the future I needed care in allopathic medicine I had a relationship already established. This is also a good idea to do with a homeopath.

A Personal Experience

During the exam, I was describing to the doctor a sensation that I sometimes experience on the left side of my body, in the chest and breast area, and under the rib cage. It is a sensation that I have had over the years. It is is not a constant sensation. It is not painful, but has a heaviness feeling to it, as if I can feel that area.

The main sensation is that the area (rib cage, chest)  feels held in, as if there is not enough room for it to expand. I don’t have any difficulty breathing, nor do I feel the sensation when I breath. The feeling is a heaviness, tightness, held in, and wanting to expand and to be let out.

I said this last part to the doctor.  She answered, “I don’t know what you are saying.” field of flowers I replied, “That kind of description is what I hear from my patients. As a homeopath, it gives me an understanding of what the person is experiencing.”

A Difference Between Allopathic and Homeopathic Medicine

I thought to myself, this is one of the differences between homeopathic and allopathic medicine. It really showed me how different an appointment is with a doctor compared to one with a homeopath.  A doctor gathers their information through the results of tests – blood pressure, pulse, vitals, blood panels, examinations etc. And a homeopath will take all of these test results into consideration, but also wants to know more about what this person is experiencing, such as the sensation I described above.

It was very interesting for me to have the physical exam, and to personally see for myself how different the experience of working with a doctor is, as compared to working with a homeopath.

Homeopathy To Heal

There is definitely a place for allopathic (western medicine) to help people in their health. And there is definitely a place for homeopathic medicine. I have found that many people who come to homeopathy for care do so after using other healing modalities, including allopathic medicine.

If you feel that homeopathy could be helpful for your or a loved one’s health condition, I invite you to contact me. I can be reached on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.

Thrush – Homeopathy Can Help

Often, new mothers and babies experience thrush.  I have received calls from mothers regarding this and wanting help for both themselves and their baby using homeopathy.

Thrush

Thrush is an overgrowth of yeast (type of fungus) that naturally is present in peoples’  mouths and digestive tracts. It is called Candida Albicans.  Symptoms arise when there baby breastfeedingis an imbalance of this bacteria. Thrush often can develop after using antibiotics.  Anti-fungal medications are often prescribed.

The baby may experience thrush in their genital area and in their mouths. The mother may experience thrush around her breast nipples, in her mouth, in her vagina, and in her digestive tract. Thrush in the mouth looks like white patches on the tongue or inside the cheeks. It may be sore and itchy.

Mothers may confuse thrush with a diaper rash. A diaper rash will start in one of the the body creases, especially where an urine soaked diaper has been rubbing against, and stay in that local area. Thrush will start around the anus, and can spread upwards towards the naval.

Homeopathy

Sometimes thrush resolves on its own in a couple weeks. If it doesn’t, the mother may want to get professional care, and to look deeper to what could be the root cause. Homeopathy can be very helpful for both mother and baby who are experiencing thrush, and for anyone else who is experiencing an overgrowth of bacteria, such as with candida or yeast infections.

As with any health concern, it is finding out how the individual experiences what is bothering them, and then giving the homeopathic remedy that is similar to this.  If someone says they have thrush, there is not a “go to” remedy that is automatically given.

What A Homeopath Would Want To Know

When a mother and a baby are experiencing thrush, the homeopath would want to know more about each of them separately, and together. There is a very good chance that they are experiencing the same imbalance, the same “state”, and will benefit from the same homeopathic remedy.  As a homeopath, I want to know:

  • how are the mother and the baby experiencing the thrush (each could be experiencing it differently) – the discomfort, the pain, the itch, the discharge.
  • where on the body is it manifesting.
  • what is the color, consistency and odor. has this changed.
  • when did it start. what was going on when it started.
  • what makes it better or worse.
  • is the mother breastfeeding. how is that going.
  • what was the pregnancy like. the birth like.
  • were any medications given to the mother and/or to the baby before, during and after the pregnancy and birth.
  • any other infections.
  • medical history of the mother and the baby.
  • any vaccines given.
  • emotional state of the mother and the baby.
  • any other physical symptoms or conditions being experienced.

Some Care Taking Tips

Keeping the area clean and dry helps to sooth the irritation, the burning, and the itching of the area. Air drying can be helpful, by having the baby go diaper less for a period of time, and for the mother to leave her nipples exposed to the air. It is suggested not to use breast pads at this time. Also, not to use soap, which can be drying and irritating. Instead add 1/2 cup of cider vinegar to the bath water, and use a cloth soaked with cider vinegar to wipe the inside of the baby’s mouth and to clean around the mother’s nipples.

If the mother can continue to breastfeed during this time, even though it is uncomfortable for her, it will benefit both her and her baby in the long run.

I invite you to contact me if you, or your baby, are experiencing thrush and are wanting homeopathic care. I would be happy to talk with you. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Anxiety/Panic Attacks – It Is Individual

As a homeopath, my job is to understand what is the underneath, core imbalance that someone is experiencing.  This is with whatever has brought someone in for homeopathic care, including when they say they are feeling anxious, and/or having panic attacks. The given homeopathic remedy is not for the anxiety, it is for this particular person who is feeling anxious.  (To read a previous post on anxiety, click I am SO Anxious.)

Very often, people who say they are feeling anxious are given a prescription medication. The prescribed medication may be relieving for a period time, but it is not healing, at the core. We use the words “anxiety” and “anxious” a lot. It is a BIG generic anxiety wordterm/label/diagnosis, and it is treated in a generic way too, not looking at the individual and what they are experiencing. Homeopathy looks at the individual and what they are experiencing.

I Am Anxious, And ______

Someone can say they are anxious, and then proceed to say:

  • I have to constantly move. I am so jittery. I am always moving my leg.
  • I do certain behaviors or actions that help calm or ease me, such as pacing,  rocking, checking things over and over again.
  • I feel paralyzed and unable to move
  • I am so uncomfortable in social events.
  • I worry how I am doing in school. I have an exam coming up.
  • I feel sick to my stomach. My stomach feels like it is burning. I need to go to the bathroom all the time.
  • I am feeling fearful. I am worried that my house will be broken into.
  • I am anxious about my health, my family, my house, my children. I feel something horrible is going to happen.
  • I am not sleeping well
  • I want to sleep all the time
  • I am having nightmares.
  • I want to be in my house, which is where I feel safe.
  • I am eating a lot, or I can’t eat at all.
  • I have headaches
  • I break out in a rash or other skin eruptions
  • My mind is so dull. I can’t think.
  • I want to be in control. I feel better when I am the one driving the car.
  • I am afraid I will lose control.
  • I bite my nails. I am short tempered. I want to be alone.
  • And more.

As you read through this list, you can see how varied anxiety is experienced.  When I meet with a patient, I want to hear more about what and how the anxiety and/or the panic attacks are for this person.  I also want to find out about other physical and emotional symptoms, medical history, dreams, fears, and more. It is getting a whole picture of the person. The anxiety or panic attacks are not a separate piece of the person. They are a piece of the whole.

Other Healing Modalities

People often seek out ways to help themselves when they don’t feel well. There are many healing modalities that can be helpful for someone who experiences anxiety and panic attacks. Along with homeopathy, there is counseling, talking to someone, having a support system, being physically active, doing an activity that you love, meditating, having body work, having a massage, being aware of  your feelings and thoughts, getting enough sleep, and eating well.

Homeopathy To Heal

Are you or a loved one feeling anxious or having panic attacks? I invite you to see how homeopathy can be of help to you. You can contact me here on my blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I see patients in the San Diego area, and also outside the San Diego area via Skype/Facetime.

Homeopathy Is A Wonderful Healing Modality – And You

I want to talk to you about homeopathy, and you.

Homeopathy is a wonderful healing modality. It is helpful for so many health concerns people experience today, from first aid, like burns, sprains, falls and dental procedures; to acute concerns like colds/flus, coughs, sore throats and impacted teeth; to chronic/ongoing conditions like gull in flightdigestive issues, headaches, swollen glands and a cancer diagnosis. For a child who is having difficulty concentrating or is on the autism spectrum, to an older person who has had a heart attack. I can list and list health concerns of which homeopathy would be helpful, and for all ages.

And homeopathy is also helpful for other living beings in addition to human beings, such as your dog, cat or horse.

You Know…

I believe that you know:

What you want.

To be pain free, to have more energy, to have better digestion, to  focus better, to have easier periods, for your child to have a conversation with you.

What is bothering you.

Pain, anxiety, fatigue, emotional feelings, a skin eruption.

What is preventing you from being better.

A mindset, a trauma or physical ailment that you really have not healed from yet, an ongoing stress situation, an exposure to environmental toxins. 

And, what you are looking for in terms of helping yourself in your health.

To feel better using more natural forms of healing that really promote a healing, and not a palliation, by accessing the body’s wonderful healing ability.

Homeopathy

You may be wanting to know specifically what homeopathy can do to help you in your health, to help you in what you do know about yourself.  I may have addressed that in previous posts, if I haven’t, I invite you to contact me and let’s see about you.

I can be contacted through this blog post or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Homeopathy – And Cancer

Over this past year and a half, I have lost both my father and step brother to cancer. When they were ill, I offered to help them both with homeopathy.  It may have helped them a bit.

Neither of them lived near me. I sent some homeopathic remedies to each of them to help with the side effects from the treatments they were  wooden heartreceiving. I also sent some homeopathic remedies to my father that addressed the specific kind of cancer he was experiencing. I offered to take my step brother’s case using Skype, but that did not happen.

I wanted to help my father and step brother more than I did.  They were both suffering. Maybe it was hard to wear two hats, a homeopath one and a daughter/sister one. Ultimately, it is up to the person who is ill of what kind of treatments they want or don’t want to receive. That was so with my father and step brother. Perhaps my listening to what they wanted and needed was part of their treatment, and was healing in a way.

How Homeopathy Can Help With One’s Health

I receive calls from people who have been given a diagnosis of cancer, either for themselves or for a family member. Most of these people are working with a cancer specialist, and are receiving allopathic treatments. They want to do everything possible to heal and to be better, and are interested and open to homeopathic care.

Homeopathy can be a part of someone’s healing and treatment when they have cancer, working along side other forms of treatments. The range of healing with homeopathy can be from a cure to a palliation of symptoms, depending on the individual person. Homeopathy helps one with their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Some people may:

  • Experience a cure of the cancer.
  • Experience a lessening or a slowing down of the spread of the disease.
  • Experience a feeling of health and well being, yet the cancer is still present.  Emotionally, they are feeling well.
  • Die of the cancer, but felt that their last few years/months were very full of life.  In some ways they were healthier.
  • Experience a palliation of the symptoms from the cancer itself, and/or also from the treatments they are doing, such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation, radium or other invasive types of treatments. Homeopathy is very helpful if someone has side effects from these kinds of treatments.
  • Not develop cancer, because they received homeopathic care when they were younger.

*******

I always feel that people have choices about their health care, and it is good to know what kinds of healing modalities are available. If you or a loved one have a diagnosis of cancer, it is important to see your physician to see what kinds of treatments are appropriate for you. Homeopathy can be part of your health plan. Listen to yourself to see what feels right for you.

When A Child Runs A Fever

This weekend I was at a friend’s open house, and I was talking to a mom about her 2 year old little girl, Sarah, not her real name. Sarah was getting over being sick.  She had had a fever that ran more at night, than in the daytime. She had the fever for about 2 days, and it was pretty high. Sarah’s mom told me that this was the first time Sarah has been sick, and it was frightening to see her daughter run the fever and not feel well.

I commented to Sarah’s mom, that a fever is a good thing. It is the body’s way of healing. She agreed with me.

This is more of what I told Sarah’s mom:

Children often run higher fevers than adults do. With children, fevers, and other symptoms, come on quickly and suddenly, and seem to be very extreme; and, the fevers go away quickly and suddenly as well. This suddenness and extreme symptoms teddy-242868_960_720are a reflection of a STRONG vital force. It is a good sign. It is showing health. The body is doing what is does so well. The person doesn’t necessarily feel so good, but it is a good sign of health.

In comparison, someone who does not have a strong vital force, such as an older person or someone who has on ongoing chronic condition, may not run a fever at all, run a low fever, or run a fever off and on. And the illness may just drag on.

I added, that it is very common for children to run a fever at night, be fine the next day, playing and being active, and then run the fever again at night. Sarah’s mom said that is what had happened with Sarah, for two days.

I could tell that Sarah’s mom felt better hearing this. She seemed more relaxed, knowing that Sarah is healthy, and her body is  doing what a healthy body does.

*******

Sometimes, a person needs some help in their healing process. Homeopathy can be very helpful when someone is running a fever, has the flu, or has a cold. And if you are concerned when you or a loved one is running a fever, it is always good to check with your physician.

If I can be of any help, please contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I do see patients outside the San Diego area through the use of Skype.
