Moms

Moms.

I was introduced to homeopathy years ago, when I was part of a La Leche League play group with my sons. La Leche League is a breastfeeding support organization. Some of the moms of the playgroup talked about homeopathy. I had never heard of homeopathy. I thought what is this! I started to do some reading and attended some classes locally. Three years later, I enrolled in a program that was in Devon, England – The School of Homeopathy. The school still exists, but is located in a different part of  England. I was a mom who wanted to know more about homeopathy. I wanted to learn.

Moms are the advocates of their family’s health, whether for their children, their partners, their parents, their extended family, theirmotherhood-7114294_960_720 friends, their pets and themselves. A father too may be the mom of the family, or an aunt, or a good friend or some other relationship. I am including all those relationships into one, and calling them mom, the mom of the family.

Moms are usually my contact person for whoever the patient is in the family. They are the ones who call me initially. They know when their families are well, and not well. They know if something has changed with a family member. They are good observers. They know. They sense. They are aware. They may not know what is wrong or bothering the family member, specifically, but they know something is not right.

When sensing that something is not quite right with a family member, moms will seek out health care for that person. Moms may do research to see what choices they have, perhaps ones that they may have not known of before. They may ask other moms what they know, and who they know who could help. When homeopathy has helped a family member, which often is a child, the mom will continue to use homeopathy, bringing other family members in for homeopathic care and also telling their friends. They will be spreading homeopathy to the world, to their own world.  

During the case taking with the patient, moms are helpful in giving their observations and knowledge of the patient. They will voice what they have noticed has changed. They will express their observations. Their information helps in knowing more about the particular family member who has come in for homeopathic care.  

I feel very grateful for moms. A big thank to you all. 

Flu And Seasonal Illnesses

We are starting the flu season and are hearing of other illnesses that are going around. Homeopathy can be very helpful if someone comes down with the flu, the coronavirus and other illnesses, including difficulty breathing. To know, it is okay to be sick. I often say that when we are sick, it is our body telling us, or rather forcing us, to rest and slow down.

With it being the holiday season we are busier than usual. We may experience many different emotions about the holiday season. We may have expectations about how the holidays need to be, and how we need to be. We are exposed to more people than usual, through socializing and traveling. We are doing and feeling more at this time of the year. 

I have written several posts about the flu and homeopathy over the years. Here is a link to one of those posts. The Flu -What To Do? Homeopathy Can Help.

During this time of the year, take the time to take care of and for yourself. Listen to what you need. I specifically say this to moms, take that time.

Homeopathy And Homeopathic Remedies

Many people have heard of homeopathy. They may have seen the word homeopathy written or printed on products. For many people, homeopathy has become synonymous for the word natural, and may be used that way in the media when describing healing treatments and products. When I am talking about homeopathy to someone new, they may say to me, or think to themselves, that this essential oils or herbal medicine or supplements. Those are not what homeopathy is.

Homeopathy is its own system of medicine. It was developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s. Homeopathy means “similar suffering”: homeo (or homoeo, the original spelling – homoeopathy) means similar, and pathy means suffering. Through listening, observing, witnessing, and understanding what is bothering the person and how they experience it, their suffering, a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to their suffering. This is applying the Law of Similars or Like Cures Like, one of the main principles of homeopathy. The given homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own innate healing ability.

Similar suffering, homeopathy, is helpful for first aid situations, acute health issues, and chronic health issues. It is always finding out how the person experiences what is bothering them and giving them the similar to that in the form of a homeopathic remedy.

What Is A Homeopathic Remedy?

homeopathic-remedies-bottles-different-35796044

There are over 4000 homeopathic remedies. They are made from plants, minerals, metals, animals, and other natural and even man made sources.

Each substance that is made into a homeopathic remedy goes through a potentization process, in which the substance starts either in a mother tincture form or grinded up (triturated) and made into a liquid. To make the C or centesimal potency, one part of the mother tincture is mixed with 99 parts of a water/alcohol liquid. This liquid is then succussed, meaning shaken vigorously and banged against a book or hard surface, resulting in the 1C potency. This is the hand method of making homeopathic remedies that Dr. Samuel Hahnemann developed.

To make the 2C potency, one part of the 1C potency is mixed with 99 parts of a water/alcohol liquid and succussed. At the 12C potency, this process of potenization has been done 12 times. Higher potencies can be made continuing this method, such as 15C, 30C, and 200C. There is the X potency, which is 10 parts. These are 6X, 12X and 30X. And the M potency, which is 1000 parts, making 1M, 10M, 50M and CM. Some of you may have used these potencies.

At the 12C potency and higher ones, there is nothing left of the physical substance of which the homeopathic remedy is made from. It is the energetic pattern of the substance. The selection of the homeopathic remedy and the potency used are similar to what the person is experiencing. Similar suffering, homeopathic.

During Hahnemann’s time, the late 1700’s early 1800’s, mercury was used as a medicine to help people who had syphilis and for other ailments. The people were cured, but they were dead, poisoned by the use of mercury. By coming up with this potenization method of diluting and succussing, Hahnemann was making these substances that were deadly in their crude form, into substances that were gentle, safe, and healing. I don’t know how he came to this potenization method, but to me it is genius.

When making the tincture or grinding the substance only a small part of the substance is used to make a lot of a homeopathic remedy. With homeopathic remedies that are made from an animal, the animal is not killed. A small part of the milk, a feather, a drop of blood, or venom is used to make the homeopathic remedy.

The homeopathic remedies that I use in my practice are purchased from a homeopathic pharmacy, such as Hahnemann Labs in Northern California, and Helios in England. These pharmacies make the homeopathic remedies on their premises, using the method that Dr. Samuel Hahnemann developed, that I briefly described above, by hand and by the use of a machine to do the succession. There are other pharmacies in Europe, India, the US, and other parts of the world.

Homeopathy To Heal

Homeopathy is helpful for many of the health issues people experience today. These passed several weeks I have seen and had calls from people experiencing a cough and fever, wanting help when having dental work, skin eruptions, allergies, pain in their hands, anxiety and feeling overwhelmed, cysts in a breast, bloating, and sudden abdominal pains that goes away and comes back again. The age range was from a young child to an older adult.

Never Too Late – My Tapestry Weaving

I have recently started weaving tapestries again. It has been a long time since I have woven. I have painted over these last years, but have not woven. Weaving is slow and a little rigid in that you can’t move around the warp as you can around a canvas or a paper, although I have thought about trying “moving around” on the warp. I feel very happy that I am weaving again.

I had been saying over the years that if I do weave again, it will be different. What I wove recently was different from what I had woven before, yet it was the same, too. I remembered how to do it – the techniques of tapestry weaving I remembered. The image of the tapestry is slightly different from ones that I have done in the past. Actually, what I wove is a section from a painting I did several years ago. My son wrote in a text to me after seeing the tapestry, “I see similarities to your recent paintings, but it also still calls back to your older tapestries.” He put it will. There is a blending of the new and the old.

Never Too Late

It is never too late to do something new or go back to what we have done before. And it is never too late to find out if there are other possibilities for our health care and ways to take care of ourselves, such as with using homeopathy. If we are experiencing a health issue for a long time and are not feeling any better, it may be a good time to see what other options there are. When I meet with a patient, I ask when did this or these symptoms start to bother you, and what was going on then in your life. It could havemarigold-1503876_960_720 (1) been something that happened recently or it could have been something fairly back in time. Homeopathy can help no matter when something happened. It is not too late to help yourself even from things that have happened in the past.

I think we sometimes get stuck in a rut. We keep doing the same things over and over again, not necessarily thinking or knowing even that there could be some other ways of doing things. Maybe it feels like it is too much to do anything new, or to change it, or to even look around to see if there are any other options. 

I receive calls and emails from many people regarding a health issue for themselves or for a loved one. They may have found that the types of health treatments they are doing are not helping them. They want to feel better and are feeling stuck. With the people who call me, some have used homeopathy before and some have not. All of them were open to seeing how something new could be of help to them. Some of these people made an appointment to see me and some did not. Still, they were open to see about something new.  

There are always opportunities, choices, and possibilities. It is never too late to get care, even going back to some healing treatment you did before. It is never too late to start something new, or to pick up some activity or passion or love that you did before, just as I did with tapestry weaving.

How Homeopathy Has Helped Some Patients

I want to mention again about THE MID-SEMESTER REFRESHER, a free summit being held online from October 24th – 30th.  I invite you to register for the summit and to hear my approximately 22 minute interview on homeopathy. There are over 20 speakers, talking about many topics that parents and parents of teens would been interested in. Here is the link to find out more about the summit, the other speakers and where to register.

Healing Is A Process

With talking about the use of homeopathy with families, I want to write about some of the people I have worked with over the years, and how homeopathy has helped them. I am not giving you the whole case of each person. I meet with people for almost 2 hours for the first appointment. Giving the main gist of the case, so you will get a feel for it.

Each person’s healing process is different. Usually for acute illnesses, you want to see something fairly quickly. For chronic health issues, it is a longer trajectory. The person has experienced what is bothering them for awhile, and it is an unraveling over a period of time. Of course with children, the healing is a shorter period of time because they have lived a shorter period of time.

Some patients did well with the first homeopathic remedy given, maybe one dose, or several doses over a period of time. Some needed more than one homeopathic remedy, a series of homeopathic remedies using one after another. This is quite common. Some patients, who did well, continue to work with me when something else comes up. 

Some Of My Patients

One boy who I saw had continual ear aches and infections. He had been on several rounds of antibiotics. The ear pain and congestion would return soon after each round of antibiotic. He was very sensitive to sounds, in that he could hear sounds very far off in the distance, running to his mother. We didn’t know if the sounds were uncomfortable or scary to him. After taking one or two doses of the homeopathic remedy, the ear aches, infections and congestion did not return. He was better and the circular use of antibiotics stopped.

Over these last two years, I have seen 5 or more children who had warts. Each child was different. One child had warts on their hands; one on their feet. The shape, the hardness or softness was different with each child. Each of them needed a different homeopathic remedy that helped them. This is a good example of how with homeopathy it is not a homeopathic remedy for _____________, (name, diagnosis, label), it is a homeopathic remedy for how the ________________ is experienced for each individual person, what it is like for this person and knowing more about each the person. Homeopathy really looks at the individual.

A young girl who had stomach pains often. She felt very anxious about what was happening in her life and about her relationships. She often would experience the stomach pains when she was feeling anxious. She did well with the homeopathic remedy, taking several doses over a period of time.  family-feet

A woman who had extreme sensitivity to noise and sounds. She had used other healing treatments, including steroids and chiropractic care, which she said made the sensitivity worse. When we first met she was using ear plugs and ear muffs, wearing them all the time. And the audio was turned off during our Skype appointment. She couldn’t hear me; what I said was being transcribed. It was the third homeopathic remedy that we used that helped. The first two didn’t do very much, yet brought us to the third, because we met and I would find out more about her, including her emotional state. Three weeks after taking the third homeopathic remedy, she said, I noticed that when I washed my hands, my ears didn’t hurt. She gradually did better and better. We used this remedy over a period time, giving a dose of it when needed. Gradually, her sensitivity became less and less. Now, she ha slight sensitivity when using a cell phone too long.

A two year old girl had extreme fears. She came from a large family and was comfortable with them. With people outside of her family, she felt fearful. She would scream if someone approached her, not make eye contact with them, run to her mother crying and screaming. She would say “I am scared” at these times. She needed to be near her mother all the time. At night, she needed to be near someone while she was going to sleep. If she woke up and found herself alone, she would scream. She didn’t like the dark. There probably was a light on in her room. She was also very frightened of the stove in the kitchen, and wouldn’t go into the kitchen alone. After taking a dose of the homeopathic remedy given, her mother said her daughter was like a new person. She was now saying hi to strangers at the store and making eye contact with them. She wasn’t afraid of the stove in the kitchen anymore. She needed several dose of this remedy over time. Her fears became less and less when around people. I continue to see this little girl and her family as patients, for other health issues, and other homeopathic remedies are used to address them. She is now 5 years old.

A 19 year old girl felt nauseous almost all the time, which made it hard for her to eat. She exercised a lot and was very involved with collegiate type team sports. She was training and was part of races. At these times, she felt very nauseous and would often vomit. The first remedy she took didn’t’ do very much. The second remedy helped, in which she experienced less and less nausea and was no longer vomiting. 

A dad of a family I work with was sick. He usually is very warm, hot even, person, wearing a jacket when others do. When he came to me, he was tired, run down, and very, very cold, which was not like him. He did well with the homeopathic remedy. What he was experiencing was more of an acute issue than a chronic, ongoing one. 

Homeopathy To Heal

You can see that people come to homeopathy for many different and varied health issues. I actually see many people who have tried other healing treatments and are not doing and feeling better. If you don’t see your health issue here, or in prior posts where I have listed issues people have seen me for, I invite you to be in touch with me and let’s talk. I offer a complimentary 15 + Get Acquainted Call. You can contact me either here on the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com

I encourage you to look at the summit, to see the different speakers. My interview is about 22 minutes long talking about homeopathy and how it is helpful for families. Here is the link again to the summit.

Homeopathy – Helpful For Families

I recently was invited to be part of a Summit on Teens, called THE MID-SEMESTER REFRESH, to talk about homeopathy. I will be giving an overview of homeopathy and how it can be helpful for families and their health. This event is organized and created by JessykaPamela Klein of Mid-Semester Promo Coulter, a Study Skills Tutor. Jessyka has brought together over 20 speakers to talk about various topics regarding teens, their health and their families health, how they learn, support for them and more. The event is being held online from October 24th to the 30th. Click here to see the other speakers and to sign up for this free event. I feel excited to be part of this event, and to be talking about homeopathy and families.

     *******

The following is a blog post I wrote a while ago about families using homeopathy. I wanted to share it with you again, having added a few thoughts.

In my homeopathic practice, I often work with families, seeing several people in the family: the children, one or both of the parents, and a grandparent. I really enjoy working with families, and getting to know them. Recently, a friend said to me that working with families may be my niche.

Healing – The Family

Usually it is one of the children who starts to see me. As they are doing better, a sibling, a parent, or another family member starts to come in for homeopathic care. By working with the different members of the family, I see the interactions, the similarities, the differences between the family members, and the medical history of the family. Just as each of us are a whole to ourselves, and the symptoms we experience are pieces of this whole, the family is a whole, and each member of the family is a piece of this whole.

Often, there is a family member that is not doing well. Sometimes, they have become the center of attention for the whole family. As this family member starts to feel and do better in their health, other family members can now pay attention to and take care of themselves. It is as if the other family members were holding back, focusing so much on this one family member that needed so much, and now the other family members can focus on themselves, their needs, and their health. By helping one family member is actually helping and focusing on the whole of the family’s health.

Health Concerns Family Members Experience

These are some of the health concerns that members of a family have come to homeopathy for:

  • pains in the abdomen before menses
  • chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia
  • difficulty with vision
  • tantrums, acting out
  • fears
  • sleep difficulties
  • earaches, congestion, fevers, coughs
  • broken bones, fractures
  • skin eruptions and skin feeling very sensitive, warts, eczema
  • breathing difficulties – asthma
  • epilepsy
  • depression and anxiety, with pains in the stomach
  • digestive issues
  • reaction to a vaccine
  • menstrual issues – menopause
  • sore throats
  • teething
  • migraines and headaches
  • feeling very chilled
  • vertigo
  • coronavirus

Usually, it is a chronic condition that brings the first family member into homeopathy. Then another family member comes in for a chronic, an acute or first aid issue. Homeopathy becomes part of their health care resources, along with western medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, therapy and other healing modalities.

Taking Everything Into Consideration – Seeing The Totality Of The Person

Many people come in for homeopathic care for a chronic health issue, that they may have been experiencing for awhile. When I meet with a patient I am finding out how they experience what is bothering them.

Sometimes, this may take several appointments. Each appointment gives more information towards getting the totality picture of the person. To have as complete a picture of the person, helps to come to the homeopathic remedy that is most similar to the patient.

Taking Everything Into Consideration

All of what I have listed here, and maybe more, makes up the totality of the person.

  • What is bothering them? Why have they come for homeopathic care?
  • How do they experience what bothers them? Pain, discomfort, side of body, what makes it worse or better, other symptoms with it. The sensation of what bothers them. Why is this a problem?
  • When did it start? What was going in their life when it started? A trauma, a loss of job, loss of a relationship or loved one, a physical move, diet change, medications taken, a particular medical condition?
  • An unusual symptom or how someone experiences a symptoms uniquely to them. It is called strange, rare and peculiar (SRP)
  • Emotional  state
  • Mental state                                                         spiral-2368124__340
  • Dreams
  • Fears
  • Childhood – events, illnesses
  • Trauma – illnesses, loss of loved one, loss of home, accident, loss of job, accident, natural disasters
  • Interests
  • Medical history
  • Family medical history –  susceptibility to health concerns are passed down from one generation to another. Susceptibility means a tendency to experience/develop certain symptoms or illnesses.
  • Medications taken over lifetime, especially if they were ongoing. The person may have noticed changes/symptoms when starting the medications, or later on. Medications like: antibiotics, vaccines, for fertility treatments, birth control pills.
  • Use of a substance for a long period of time, which has been toxic, such as chewing tobacco, smoking, drinking alcohol, and use of cell phone, especially with children. Symptoms or ill health developed after this. I have read cases about symptoms and ill health developing with overuse of what I have listed here.

Seeing The Totality Of The Person

It is seeing the totality. Finding out as much as possible about the patient. Seeing what may have brought them to this state of ill health. With this understanding and knowledge of their totality, a homeopathic remedy is given. As the healing process moves forward, this first homeopathic remedy may be repeated, a higher potency/strength of the remedy may be given, or another homeopathic remedy will be given. It is a process. Each homeopathic remedy helps us to move forward to the next, and is chosen based on the similarity to what the person is experiencing at that time. The Law of Similars or Like Cures Like is the main principle of homeopathy. The given homeopathic remedies stimulate the person’s own healing abilities, bringing the person back to a more healthful state of being.

Homeopathy To Heal

These are some of the recent health issues people have called me about, and have come in for homeopathic care. Many of these people have also reached out to their physician.

  • skin eruptions – warts, eczema, rashes
  • swollen lymph nodes
  • vertigo
  • migraines/headaches
  • fears/phobias
  • anxiety/depression
  • digestive issues
  • menstrual issues
  • extreme sensitivity to sound and noise
  • reactions to vaccines
  • traumas – physical, emotional, mental
  • eye discomfort and infection
  • pressure in the head
  • not feeling right

Why Do I Practice Homeopathy? (2)

I wrote this post about 5 years ago. I want to share it with you again. I added a few things.

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,  the discomfort, and the pains come from.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It is a system of medicine that addresses the individual. Seeing each person as the unique person they are.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

As I see people healing and doing better, they are more at ease to be fully themselves, and are no longer being limited by the symptoms that are experiencing. They are no longer stuck.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It is helpful for many of the health issues that people are experiencing today.

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?

I feel there is such a need for homeopathy. There are more toxic substances that we are being exposed to, in the environment, in foods, in cleaning and cosmetic products, and in the medicines that are being used.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I think it is important for people to have choices in their health care, to know that they have options in how to take care of themselves and their family. This can be empowering.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I like to give hope. To know that we can change, heal and feel better.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It makes sense to me. It resonates with me. I continue to learn. It is a WOW to me.

*******

How can I be of help to you?

If you or a loved one have a health issue that has been bothering you for awhile, I invite you to contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Listening – To Yourself

Part of this blog is from a post I wrote several years ago. I wanted to share it again. I have been hearing a lot about listening to ourselves, especially during the times we are going through.

Listening, observing, witnessing, finding out how the person experiences what bothers them is what I do as a homeopath. I think I am a good listener, to others, but maybe not so good at listening to myself, hearing myself.

Are We Listening To Ourselves?

For me, sometimes, I am easily swayed or influenced by what other people say to me, or are doing. I need time afterwards to sift through, and process the information and energy of others. As a society, we are bombarded by all sorts of information, almost instantaneously and continually. From that we often think we need to be doing this or that, feeling this or that, comparing ourselves to others, and ultimately not being in tune with ourselves. We may not be listening to our own needs and wants, and who we are as an individual person.

Listening is not just with our ears. It is what we sense about ourselves and around us, and how we feel, inside. Our gut feeling.

Our bodies can tell us a lot of how we are reacting to a situation. Our thoughts tell us too. These reactions, responses and thoughts are often autonomic. We go to them immediately. Physically, we may get sick, which is a way of telling ourselves to slow down, to pause, to rest and to listen. Our head hurts. Our stomach grumbles and hurts. Our digestion may be off. A rash breaks out. We breath shallowly, maybe panting. Our heart beats faster. Our hands get sweaty. come down with a cold. We are not sleeping well. Emotionally, we may feel angry, fearful, shamed, irritated, annoyed, impatient, bored, unsettled or hurt. Mentally, we may have persistent thoughts that could be negative, almost looping around and around and around.

woman on phone

I sometimes think we may need to call ourselves on the phone, so we will actually listen to ourselves.

“Hey, Pam, I want to tell you this….”

Listening To Ourselves

  • What am I feeling?
  • This doesn’t feel right to do or feels right to do – about a relationship, a job, an opportunity, an event.
  • Don’t know what to do further in this creative work, will wait. Now I know what to do! Took the time to listen.
  • This person is doing this activity or has this belief. Is this something I want to do or believe in? Shall I go along with this person or not?
  • Following a dream, a passion, a trip that you have always wanted to take.
  • Should I? Shouldn’t I? (Shoulds are usually something to avoid.)
  • My body is not feeling right. What is my body telling me?
  • Time to rest, even if others are continuing.
  • Am I reacting?
  • The group is doing this, it doesn’t feel right to me.
  • Even if this person is an expert, I will get another expert’s opinion.
  • I am going to be quiet for awhile, so I can hear my voice, listening to what I am saying.
  • Am I speaking my voice with other people?
  • Am I speaking and hearing my own voice?
  • What does my voice sound like?

Listening To Me

I do artwork. I have done artwork off and on for most of my life. When I talk about the process of doing art work, I say that I listen to the piece that I am working on, almost as if the piece is telling me what to do next, what color to use, what line to draw and more. When I think (I am pointing to my head) of what to do, it doesn’t work. When I let the art work tell me, it works. It is a feeling or sense to do this ________. Is this the art telling, or me telling me? Whatever it is, it is listening to that.

A Video With Oprah Winfrey And Iyanla Vanzant

Below is a video of a conversation between Oprah Winfrey and Iyanla Vanzant from the program SuperSoul Sunday. They talked about pausing, staying present, and using your own spiritual GPS, instead of doing what we always do. The video is about 1:36 minutes long. Enjoy.

Homeopathy To Heal

When I work with a patient, I am witnessing what is bothering them. I often say, that the patient and I are witnessing them together. Witnessing is listening. I am listening to the patient. And the patient is listening to themselves.

Homeopathy – A Need For and How It Works

I write often that there is a need for homeopathy. I am seeing this need more and more from people, not only with the people who call me asking if homeopathy can help them, but also from just reading about how health care is in the world.

People call me about many different health issues. Very often, they have experienced this health issue for a period of time, received different treatments and possibly medications for it, yet they are not better. They may feel frustrated, stuck and unheard. Their health issue may not fit a box of a diagnosis or a name. The person is not feeling well, has symptoms that bother them greatly, which can affect their daily life.

Acute and Chronic Health Issues

Sometimes homeopathy works very quickly. Actually, you want to see a fairly fast respond when using homeopathy for first aid issues (falls, sprains, insect bites, traumas, dental work) and acute health issueshomeopathy bottles (flu, colds, stomachaches). You want to see symptoms move and change towards healing. Several doses of a remedy may be used. As the person heals and the symptoms change, another homeopathic remedy will be needed.

With a chronic, long term health issue, more time is needed for the healing. Often, a series of homeopathic remedies are used, taking one remedy at a time, and then when needed another one is used. Homeopathic remedies are usually not taken daily. One or two doses are taken within 24 hours, and then we wait and observe how the person is responding. The remedy is stimulating the person’s own healing ability. Sometimes we see something in the first few days, sometimes in a week, and sometimes longer. The changes may be subtle at first.

Follow Up Appointments

Follow up appointments help us to see how the person has responded to the remedy. From these appointments we know how to proceed, whether to continue with that remedy or to change to another. We don’t want to just keep giving the homeopathic remedy especially if nothing much has happened.

Sometimes the first homeopathic remedy does not do very much. By meeting again, we start to get a deeper understanding of the person, and use a homeopathic remedy that fits and helps more. The first remedy was not in vain; it helped us move to the next one. Healing is a process. We are healing at the root cause of the health issue, not just palliating.

One of my patients has done very well after the third homeopathic remedy we given. It is still used when needed. The first two remedies for this patient brought us to this third one.

Patients that use homeopathy as part of their health care get in contact with me when something comes up regarding their health, whether it is first aid, an acute issue, or a chronic issue that they are experiencing. For these patients, we may use the homeopathic remedy that has helped before or another one is needed. We address what is happening to them at this time.

Homeopathy To Heal

Since we want a healing, and healing is a process, we want to give the process time to work. Three months, six months, more time. It does depend on how long someone has experienced what is bothering them in terms of the healing time. Appointments are not weekly. The follow up appointments are 4 – 6 weeks apart, based on what is needed and the individual.

If I can be of help to you or loved one who has a health issue, I would be happy to talk with you. I offer a complimentary 15+ minute Get Acquainted Call to see if this is something you would like to pursue. I see patients both local and outside the San Diego area, virtually and in person.

“I Am Sensitive”

Patients often tell me that they are sensitive, sensitive to medications, supplements and vitamins. I take this in consideration when deciding on the potency of the homeopathic remedy, and how often the person will take it.

This is only one kind of sensitivity.

I think we are all sensitive.

We are sensitive to things outside of our bodies. And a particular part of our body or functioning of our body can be more sensitive. That is the part of the body where we experience symptoms when we are under stress. Someone may have headaches or migraines. Someone may have digestive issues; skin eruptions, such as hives; menstrual difficulties; breathing difficulties; sleep issues; feel very anxious or nervous, to name a few.ball-2995723_960_720

Sensitivities can also be to many different things in our environment, in our relationships, in our work life and more. We may think that having a sensitivity is only negative. Sensitivities can also be positive. A person feels better from being out in the sun, or outside in the fresh air. They are sensitive to the sun, in a positive way.

Sensitivities

Physical and environmental:

  • temperature and weather changes
  • moon phases
  • time of day
  • seasons
  • heat or cold
  • clothing
  • being covered or uncovered
  • particular foods and drink
  • medications, supplements
  • touch, pressure or lack of touch or pressure, textures
  • other environmental occurrences
  • sounds, light, smells, tastes, touch
  • air, drafts, wind
  • sun
  • pain

Emotional. With the list below, many people may not like what is happening or want to be around it, such as experiencing an angry person. We may have a response or reaction to the situation. Someone who has more of a sensitivity to it, such as with being around an angry person, will be affected more by it. In a way, the person is stuck in the angry.

  • angry situations, quarrels, arguments
  • teasing, joking, bullying
  • criticism, lack of appreciation, humiliating
  • sadness, grief
  • betrayal
  • rudeness
  • feeling left out, forsaken
  • pressure of deadlines
  • talking to other people – to individuals or to groups
  • preforming
  • responsibilities, sense of duty
  • jealousy

When we are feeling stressed, we are more triggered by our sensitivities and to what is happening around us. We may then start to experience physical, emotional, or mental symptoms. In a way, it is our body’s way of handling this stress. With homeopathic care, the response of the symptoms we experience may become less pronounced. We may still experience the stress, still be bothered by it, yet we are able to handle the situations better, without being as affected as much. Other tools, techniques and therapies can also be helpful.

Sensitivity To Loud Noises

Over this past year, I have seen several people who are very sensitive to noise and sounds. To the point that they wear ear plugs or muffs, and are not taking part in life’s every day activities. Each of the cases were different, and needed a different homeopathic remedy, that fit them, even though what brought them into homeopathy, the sensitivity to noise and sounds was the same.

One woman has done very well. We used two homeopathic remedies and then the third one helped greatly. She is still doing very well, having a dose of the homeopathic remedy when needed. Her experience with homeopathy shows that very often a series of homeopathic remedies are needed, helping the case move forward. It is a process of healing.
