Each Person’s Healing Process Is Individual To Them

From the beginning of working with a person, I tell them that there most likely will be a series of homeopathic remedies needed, using one at a time. As we work together, I am learning more about them, witnessing, seeing, hearing them. We are doing this together. I always say, it is the person who is healing themselves.

It may be that they need just one or two doses of the first homeopathic remedy. Or they may need several doses of the remedy over a period of time. Or a higher potency or strength of the homeopathic remedy. Or that that the first homeopathic remedy helped, to a point, and brought up other symptoms and now another homeopathic remedy is needed. This may happen several times, the need for a different remedy.

The image of a ladder has been used by other homeopaths to illustrate a series of homeopathic remedies. One rung is one remedy, the next rung possibly another remedy. The next rung a stronger potency. Next rung, maybe time has passed and the person comes back. And so on. 

It is a process, and individual to the person.

The intention is always for a long lasting healing, not a band aid or quick fix that only lasts for a short time. Although sometimes we do need a quick fix for that moment, and then a homeopathic remedy promoting a long lasting healing afterwards.

Being Stuck

Being stuck.

When someone is not feeling well, whether it is an acute illness or an ongoing chronic issue, they are stuck. Stuck in the symptoms they are experiencing, whether they are physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual ones. Not moving stuck-snow-carforward from the symptoms. The symptoms are not changing and the person is not feeling better. There is no movement.

For example, if someone has an acute illness such as a dry, unproductive cough that is lingering and lingering, exhausting the person, we want to see the cough starting to loosen up, becoming a more wetter type of cough. Maybe starting to cough up some mucous, and the nose starting to run. There might even be a rash. This is movement and change. Not being stuck anymore. The person is healing.

With a chronic, ongoing health issue the person lives with the symptoms. There may be flare ups or episodes, and there may times that the person feels better, but then the symptoms come back. The person may think that this will never change, accepting that this is just part of their life or how their life will be. This is being stuck.

I say often to someone who has an acute illness, we want to see change in your symptoms. We want to see movement from what you are experiencing. This is showing that you are healing, no longer being stuck. 

A lot of the patients that come to homeopathy are stuck. They are stuck in their symptoms, in their state of ill health. Whether it is skin eruptions, menstrual difficulties, anxiety/depression, fears, breathing difficulties, just not feeling well, sore throats, digestive issues, nausea, pain, arthritis, headaches …. They are stuck.

Homeopathy heals, creating movement, helping someone to become unstuck, so they can live their live fully.

Homeopathy Is A Living Medicine

A living medicine.

I talk to myself quite a bit. Recently I said to myself that homeopathy is a living medicine.  I was thinking about how people use homeopathy, and this thought – homeopathy is a living medicine – came to me.

What I mean about a living medicine actually has several aspects.

First – the substances that homeopathic remedies are made from are living. Homeopathic remedies are made from plants, metals and minerals (the period table), animals (animals are not killed to make homeopathic remedies), and what is called imponderables, such as sunlight and moonlight. All of these substances – plants, minerals and metals, animals, imponderables – are alive in some way. They are and/or have energy.

Second – the energy part. The fact that these substances are energy makes them alive. Energy moves, changes, adapts, brush-96240_960_720grows, affects, and reproduces. All of these can be descriptions of being alive.

Third – relating to a living being, a person or an animal (homeopathy is very helpful for animals). The individual. How the person is. How they experience what bothers them. I think this is really what triggered my thought about homeopathy being a living medicine. The individual, what they are expressing through their symptoms, their state, is their aliveness. This is what we want to address. As a homeopath, this is what I want to know, witnessing this with the patient.

The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like. It is giving the similar to what the person is experiencing in the form of the homeopathic remedy. The aliveness of what the person is experiencing, with the aliveness of the  homeopathic remedy that is similar to them. Like cures like. Living/aliveness cures living/aliveness

Fourth – the aliveness. The living. The ability to change. Looking at the individual. This being. Their uniqueness. Not a one size fits all. This is the aliveness. And possibly, healing is alive too. It is change.

I Feel Grateful – More People Are Coming To Homeopathy

My homeopathic practice has gotten busier. I like that for me. I like that for you, my patients, and for future patients. And I like that for homeopathy. 

I have always said, thought and written that there is a need for homeopathy. I think people are starting to see that homeopathy can fill a need they have. They are seeing that homeopathy can be helpful for them. Or at least starting to be more curious about it.heart in sand

I feel very grateful that people are coming. I feel grateful that they are seeing the value of homeopathy, and they are valuing themselves.

A person may be experiencing some health issue that has been bothering them for awhile. They may have used different healing modalities to help, but continue not to feel well. They want to feel better. At this time they are more open to other options for their health care. 

In my homeopathic practice, I see babies through older adults for a wide range of health issues  – anxiety, skin eruptions, women’s issues, digestive issues, headaches, pain, sleeping difficulties, fears, nervousness, colds, flus, injuries and more.

Homeopathy looks at the individual and the totality of the person. It is how the person experiences what bothers them, not the name of the syndrome or disease. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what the person is experiencing, stimulating their innate healing ability.

“I Feel Anxious”

“I feel anxious.”

We may be hearing more people saying this,  from both adults and children. In this past year, we have been living in anxious cartoonmore uncertain times than usual. From this, some of us are feeling more anxious than usual. 

We can’t necessarily change what is happening around us, but we can change and help ourselves in how we response and react to what is going on. There are many different healing modalities that can be helpful for this and when someone feels anxious. Homeopathy is one of them, and homeopathy can be used along with these other healing modalities.

Feeling Anxious

One girl experiences severe stomach aches and nausea. She doesn’t want to eat. She feels very anxious and is very concerned about her family members.

A woman feels out of control. Cries a lot. She feels very anxious. Notices that she is eating a lot, out of feeling anxious and she isn’t hunger. 

Most of the time when someone comes to homeopathic care there is a particular physical issue that is bothering them.  As they talk, they may say “I feel anxious”. As a homeopath, I want to know what this anxiousness is like for this person. For example: 

  • What do they mean by anxious?
  • How do they feel anxious in their body?
  • Any physical symptoms? Stomachaches, headaches, rashes. difficulty breathing, sleeping difficulties, dreams, behaviors, thoughts, fears.  What are these like?
  • What triggers the anxious feeling?
  • How do they react or respond when they feel anxious way?
  • What do they do when they feel anxious?
  • Is there an image to this anxious feeling?

We are not a one size fits all. That is the same with helping someone when they feel anxious. IT is finding out about them.

Homeopathy Helps Children

I see many children in my homeopathic practice – babies through teenagers.

Children respond well to homeopathy. Adults do too.

To start using homeopathy when someone is young, when they are a child, is wonderful. It is side stepping possibly many years of medications and treatments that can be very invasive. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

Homeopathy simulates the person’s innate three girlshealing ability. Children have a wonderful immune system. They have a strong vital force/vitality, and respond well to homeopathy.

These are some of the health issues that children have come to homeopathy for: 

  • anxiety – depression
  • skin eruptions – warts (you have read a recent post on this), eczema, acne
  • coronavirus
  • delayed talking
  • ADHD
  • digestive issues  – stomach aches
  • fears – ranging from a scary monster in their room to fear of losing a loved one
  • nightmares
  • difficulty sleeping
  • injuries – falls, traumas, bites, emotional or physical abuse, reactions from toxic substances in our environment, vaccines
  • ear infections, colds, fevers, coughs, sore throats
  • teething
  • thrush
  • emotional and behavioral issues
  • certain actions and behaviors – such as running away, constantly moving, fidgeting, biting, hitting
  • difficulty focusing
  • obsessiveness
  • bed wetting
  • allergies
  • respiratory issues, asthma
  • menstrual issues

Seeing A Homeopath

My job as a homeopath is to find out about the child, the totality of them. I do this through observation, listening to both the parents and the child, finding out about the child’s dreams, finding out what bothers them, asking about their likes and child-1072227_960_720dislikes, what has changed and more. With babies, who may not be talking yet,  observation plays a lot into finding out about the child. 

With all of this, I suggest a homeopathic remedy that is similar to the totality of what the child is experiencing in their symptoms. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the child’s healing process. They start to feel better. A healing starts.

Sometimes what bothers the child is not what the parents always think is bothering the child. Several years ago, I saw a boy who had a cough. The cough bothered his mother greatly. What bothered the boy was that his younger sister bossed him around all the time. “She was the boss of me”, he said. This, plus the cough and more, led me to the homeopathic remedy that helped him.

From this experience, I learned that what may bother the parent isn’t necessarily what bothers the child. Together, the information from the parent and the child, help to make the whole picture, the totality of the child.

If I can be of help to your child, or one you know and love, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15+minute Get Acquainted Call to see if this is something you would like to pursue.

More About Grieving And Loss – Homeopathy Helps In The Healing

I have written about grieving in a prior post. I thought about just re-sending that post, but wanted to add a few more thoughts about grieving.

Grief is a feeling, the emotion we experience when we lose something or someone. We feel grief over a loss.

Crying helps. Talking to a friend. Expressing your anger in a constructive way. Taking a bath. Receiving and giving a hug. Creating something. Being out in nature. Basically, being kind to and taking care of yourself.

As a homeopath, I don’t necessarily see people who come in and say I am grieving, and need help for this loss. I take the case, witnessing with the patient what is bothering them. Sometimes a loss is expressed and shared with me. And the person may be grieving for this loss. A loss can be:

  • A death – parent, baby, child, spouse, significant other, relative, friend, pet
  • A loss of a job – firing, resigning, downsizing, restructuring, retiring
  • A move – changing one’s place of residency, a friend moving away, moving to another country, loss of a house/home
  • A grown child moving out, or going to college/another city for work/enlisting in the military
  • A divorce, a separation, or a relationship ending
  • A situation, event or even how you respond to something that is different than what you thought or wanted it to be
  • A change in the political climate
  • A change in your life – such as becoming a parent, getting married. The change event can be a good and happy one, but there may be some reactions or responses (losses) to these changes.
  • A loss of income
  • An (ongoing) illness – of oneself or a loved one, an aging parent, a pet
  • A war
  • A natural disaster – a friend years ago lost her house in a fire
  • A restriction, lock down, or lack of freedom – such as we have just been experiencing all over the world
  • A possibility or plan change – something we had been looking forward to isn’t happening, a relationship with a person that won’t happen
  • I am sure there are other losses

At first the loss is mentioned as the person is talking and telling me about themselves, Weight of grief made by artist Celeste Robergeabout how they feel what bothers them, and about their past. The loss is almost mentioned as an aside. Very often, I have noticed that what is bothering them, what brought them to homeopathy started when they experienced this loss. And the loss could have happened several years ago, and has had a lingering effect on the person. The loss could be considered a trauma.

(I came across this photo of this sculpture made by the artist Celeste Roberge on Facebook. It conveys the feelings of grief. Heaviness. Weighted  down. Unable to move. Feeling trapped. Google her to see more of her work.)

Two Women

I want to tell you about two women I have seen who have experienced a loss in their lives.

One woman has been feeling indifferent and apathetic to her life, not wanting to do anything. She is used to being in a work situation that is filled with people, and being involved with working with people together, as a team. She had recently retired. She no longer has this environment. It is a loss for her. It is something that she had always valued, and she misses it. She doesn’t necessarily say it this way, but that is what is expressed. This loss is an important part of her case, telling a lot about her as a person, along with the physical issues that are bothering her.

Another woman had a significant family member pass away. For her, not having this person in her life is very difficult. She has felt since the loss of this person, a numbness, a sense of being scattered, a difficulty focusing, fatigue, and digestive issues.

There is a lot more to each of these two women. I mention them here, because I want to point out that grief and feeling a loss of something, of someone, or of an environment in one’s life, can have an effect on our lives. The person is grieving, and missing what was – a person, an event, a possibility and more.

Homeopathy To Heal

Homeopathy can be part of one’s healing process when they are going through the feeling of grief, and have experienced a loss. There are also therapists, counselors, grief recovery specialists and other healing practitioners. If I can be of help, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15+ minute Get Acquainted Phone Call to see if this is a fit.

My Symptoms Keep Coming Back

People ask me, can you help me with ______?

I hear all sorts of health issues that people are experiencing. Such as, a person has pains and discomforts in their feet. Someone has an extremely itchy rash or eczema eruption. Breathing is difficult for someone. Being very anxious in some situations. Feelings of sadness or depression. Not sleeping well. During menstrual cycle certain symptoms come up. Feeling extremely fearful and/or having nightmares. Ongoing headaches, stomachaches, or digestive issues. Unable to focus or concentrate on their work or schoolwork. Painful pains.  Rheumatoid arthritis. Tremors. I hear all sorts of things.

The person is not feeling well, and they want to feel better.

Recurring Health Issue

Their health issue is often something that has been going on for a awhile, or it had gone away and now it is recurring, again. They may have periodic flare ups of it. They are not feeling better, even though they are doing different types of treatments. They want to feel better.

I have written in an earlier post about a young boy who had recurring nasal congestion, fevers and ear infections. The boy had taken several courses of antibiotics. Each time, he would be better for a month or so, and then the whole situation would happen again. The homeopathic remedy that fit him, that was similar to what he was experiencing, helped him a lot.  He no longer experienced the recurrence of the nasal congestion, the fevers, and the ear infections. 

Often when there is a recurring health issue, the treatments being used help to ease and to palliate when there is an outbreak or flare up. These treatments help the person feel better for the time being, but don’t heal the health issue. The person needs to continue taking the medications or treatments to feel better, often accepting that these recurrences will happen again, and again.

Does this sound like you?

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy heals at the root cause of what is bothering the person. It is a deep healing. As the person heals, the recurrences and flare ups become less and less, till they no longer happen at all. It is a healing. With the young boy I wrote of, I had thought there might be a recurrence of the ear infection as he was healing, but there wasn’t. The cycle was broken. With an adult, the stopping of the cycle may take longer to happen than with this young boy, since the adult has had this health issue for a longer period of time. But the cycle does end.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help a recurring health issue that you have. Either contact me here, through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a 15 minute complimentary Get Acquainted Call. I would be happy to talk with you about yours or a loved one’s health issue.

Changing – Being At The Beach

This weekend I went to the beach. I walked on the beach. I waded a little bit in the water. The sun was strong, but there was a cool breeze. I had the hood of my sweatshirt up. There were ospreys flying in the sky, many of them, in a line of 8 or more. And several lines of them, flying, meeting up with each other. They were flying up and down the coast. When I last saw them, they were heading up north and then gone, I couldn’t see them anymore. I know that they would be coming south again.

I have been going to the beach more often than usual since last August. In August through October, I went in the ocean. I wanted to be in the water. Since November, I have been walking the beach. The beach is Ocean Beach, in San Diego. I Beach, Waves, Ocean, Pacific, Water, Oregon, Coast, Sealook forward to when it is warmer and I will go into the ocean again.  

Seeing the ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and the beach at different times of the year has been fascinating. It changes. Last month, in February there were huge hills of sand on the beach, to protect from storms and erosion. The sand hills were man made. And there were at least 4 feet high piles of seaweed. The seaweed and hills of sand were not there this weekend. How the beach changes, yet it is still the beach, the ocean, the tides, the birds, the waves, the shells. 

Changes. Nothing really stays the same. Things change.

We change.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

I often say to patients when they have an acute issue, like a flu or a cold, that if the symptoms are not changing or moving, you are stuck, and let’s do something homeopathically to help move things. In a way you want change, you want things to move.  A chronic ongoing health issue is being stuck, stuck in those symptoms.

Health is movement, change and being able to adapt.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I have a 15+ minutes Complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Having Choices

I am for choice. To get information, so we can make choices that work and fit us regarding our health care.   choice-2692466_960_720

Historically, homeopathy has been helpful in epidemics. There usually is a group of homeopathic remedies that fit that particular epidemic. This was so with the 1918 – 1919 Spanish Flu epidemic, and it is so with the epidemic we are experiencing now. Different homeopathic remedies have come up for each of these epidemics. I wrote about this in past blog posts.

During the time we are in, homeopathy has been used all over the world to help people who have come down with the coronavirus. It has helped tremendously. Unfortunately, in mainstream news we don’t hear about how helpful homeopathy has been.

Being a homeopath, and knowing that there is help if someone comes down with the virus, gives me confidence if I, a family member, or a patient do become sick. I have seen a few patients who had coronavirus symptoms. We used the homeopathic remedies that had come up to be useful for this virus, and that fit what the person was experiencing. Homeopathy helped them a lot.

In January 2021, I saw a woman who had difficulty breathing, especially saying that too much air was coming in when she was inhaling. She said she needed to wear a mask to decrease the amount of air coming in. She had been experiencing her symptoms for about 4 weeks before I saw her. Homeopathy helped her.

If people do choose to take the vaccine, there are homeopathic remedies that can be helpful for the initial reaction, such as a sore arm, a rash, a fever, a headache, and aches and pains. Historically, homeopathy has been very helpful for those who have lingering effects from a vaccine. There is a rubric in the Homeopathic Repertory “General, Vaccinations, after”, under which quite a few homeopathic remedies are listed.

I have seen a few patients who have had the vaccine, helping them with the kinds of reactions that I listed above. We don’t know yet what the long term reactions or side effects will be from these vaccines. Homeopaths all over the world are starting to collect cases of people who have had reactions, and coming up with homeopathic remedies that will be helpful. Collecting this information regarding side effects is similar to how the information was collected regarding homeopathic remedies for this epidemic. A group of homeopathic remedies will emerge as being helpful for those who have side effects.

My knowledge and trust in homeopathy guides me. It grounds me. I know there is help for those who are sick; those who come down with the coronavirus; those who don’t take the vaccine; and those who may experience side effects from the vaccine.

Having a choice is important. Choose what works for you. Do your research. I want to add, don’t come from fear.

Continue taking care of yourself by eating well, getting good rest, taking vitamins, being outside in the sunshine, being with people you enjoy, and doing activities you love. All these help to boost your immune system. We have a wonderful innate ability to heal.
