Wanting To Be Heard

Wanting to be heard.

I am always reminded of this. With my patients. With my interactions with people. With myself.

We want to be heard. Sometimes we want to be agreed with, to be acknowledged, to be validated, to say out loud what is going around in our heads. to share, to just say.

When I said this to a friend, that I want to be heard, she said we want to be loved. hearts transparent

And we want a safe place to be heard.

When I meet with a patient, finding out what is bothering them, taking their case, many people talk. They usually talk about a lot of things, in addition to what brought them in to homeopathy.

Wanting to be heard:

  • A patient’s mother said to me that this is the first time someone agreed with her that there is a connection between the brain/mind/head and the gut. Her son was my patient.
  • Another patient said, this is the first time a health practitioner has really listened to what I am experiencing with my health.
  • Another asked me how do you feel about this? I answered, you are taking care of your health, and doing what you feel is right for you. I think what the person was really wanting was to open a conversation about something that was bothering them, which was how their family felt about their choices about health, not that she necessarily wanted my opinion.
  • A patient told me when she said to her husband go see Pam, it was not just for his health concern, but for someone to listen to him.
  • A man was telling me about a painful event in his life. He was filled with so many emotions, expressed on his face, through his gestures, and his words.
  • Many times a patient is given a name or a diagnosis to what they are experiencing. They have used different healing modalities, yet are not feeling better. In the homeopathic process, THEIR particular symptoms are heard, along with the general symptoms of the name/diagnosis. I would like to say that they are being heard, not the name/diagnosis.

At the beginning of the appointment, I always ask first, why are you here? What is bothering you? Often, the name or the diagnosis is stated, then the symptoms, and then more about how they experiencing this health issue. These are some of the health issues (the name or diagnosis) that have brought people in for homeopathy: warts, eczema, depression, grief, anxiety, stomachaches, nausea, hormonal issues, menstrual issues, painful to hear sounds of any kind, shingles, fatigue,sinus pressure, coughs, and flus.

I invite you to contact me about a health issue you or a loved one may be experiencing, to see if homeopathy is a healing modality you would like to pursue. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

What is this LIKE CURES LIKE That I keep Writing About?

What is this Like Cures Like or Law of Similars, that I keep writing about? What is this giving the similar to what the patient is experiencing in the form of a homeopathic remedy?

Onion

Think how it feels when you are cutting, peeling, or slicing an onion. Your eyes start to tear, to burn and to sting. You wipe or rub your eyes, sometimes using a cloth, trying to get out whatever is in them, if there is anything. Your nose may also start to run or onion 2drip. Other people may say you are crying. You say you are crying. It doesn’t feel like it does when you are crying. Yes, there are tears, but this is not how you feel when you cry. Your eyes don’t usually sting or burn when you are crying.

If someone is experiencing these kinds of symptoms that I described above when they have a cold or an allergy, the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa may be helpful for them. Allium cepa is made from the red onion.

It doesn’t matter if it is a cold or an allergy. It is the symptoms of the burning, the stinging, the tearing, the runny eyes and nose that are guiding the homeopath to the homeopathic remedy. In this case, guiding them to Allium cepa. The name, whether it is a cold or allergy, doesn’t mean anything. It is the symptoms that are the guide.

The example of peeling an onion is used very often to explain Like Cures Like.

Symptoms

The symptoms are the pieces of the total picture of the person. Homeopaths use the symptoms as a guide to what homeopathic remedy is needed for the person; matching the homeopathic remedy to the symptoms that make up the totality of the person. This is Like Cures Like. You can see why the homeopath needs to know a lot about each person, so the similar, the similar homeopathic remedy, can be given.

The symptoms are the way the vital force, the immune system, the chi, of the person is trying to heal itself. Giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy assists in the person’s healing process.

When I meet with a patient, I am finding out about them, about their symptoms. This can be for any health issue that a person comes to homeopathy for – such as menstrual difficulties, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, skin eruptions, fears, headaches, allergies, sore throats, ear infections, autoimmune issues, to list just a few. And then giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy, Like Cures Like.

Coronavirus

Over a year ago, I wrote several blogs on how homeopathy can be helpful with the coronavirus. I want to mention this again. Homeopathy is helpful: 

  • if someone comes down with the coronavirus
  • is having “long haul”, lingering types of symptoms
  • has a “breakthrough” infections
  • has had a vaccine and is experiencing side effects from it, soon after or continuing over a period of time.

Homeopaths all over the world are helping people using homeopathic remedies that are similar to what the person is experiencing, in regards to the coronavirus. Again, this is Like Cures Like.

We don’t hear about how homeopathy is helpful in mainstream news. I want you to know that there are ways to help yourself and your family. And homeopathy can be used along with other healing modality treatments.

Homeopathy To Heal

I invite you to contact me to find out how homeopathy can be part of your healing process. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call to see if this is fit for you. Either contact me here through my blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

An Emotional Event In Our Life Can Bring On Symptoms

An emotional event is a trauma. I have written about physical traumas, and how homeopathy can be helpful after an accident, injury, surgery, fall, dental work. Homeopathy is also helpful after emotional traumas.

An emotional trauma could be a loss, an abuse, a bullying, a fear, a regret, a feeling of shame, a feeling of guilt, a cookie heartfeeling of not carrying out what they believe is their responsibility, a feeling that they need to be perfect, to name a few. A person may develop some physical symptoms after experiencing an emotional upset or scare. Sometimes these emotional upsets are ongoing, and sometimes it is a one time occurrence.

Some of the physical symptoms can be stomachaches, headaches, nausea, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, menstrual changes, skin eruptions, obsessive behaviors, phobias, fears, anxiety, depression, nightmares, sore throats, breathing difficulties, earaches, colds, flus, autoimmune disorders, and more.

Two People

One night, when my youngest son was about a year old, there was a loud clap of thunder. It sounded as if it was right outside our window. He started to cry. I was holding him and comforting him. He was crying and was scared from this loud noise. A week later, he developed a cold and a fever. I remembered back to the fright that he had experienced from the thunder. I gave him a homeopathic remedy which helped with his cold, the fever and the fright. The loud thunder was so frightening to him. After being so afraid, he become sick with a cold and a fever. This was the emotional event.

A patient lost a very close family member. She was able to function, to work, and to live her life to a point. She expressed that a times she no longer wanted to live. She was in a lot of pain. She told her story of what had happened, filled with so many emotions. Physically, she was experiencing stomach pains, wanting to eat a lot, having headaches, and feeling paralyzed. She felt hopeless. A homeopathic remedy was given to address the emotions and the physical symptoms she was experiencing.

I often ask my patients when I meet with them, did anything happen right before you became sick or started experiencing these symptoms? I ask this question not just when someone has an acute illness like a cold or fever, but also when someone as chronic health issues that they have been experiencing for awhile. Sometimes I don’t need to ask the question, people just tell me what happened to them. 

The patient and I together are witnessing the pieces that make up the whole of them, the totality of them at this time. Totalities can change. The emotional state is a piece, a part of the totality. The homeopathic remedy that is similar to this totality is given to assist the person in their healing.

If I can be of help homeopathically to you or a loved one, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call to see if this is a fit for you. If you know of anyone who may be interested in this information, I would appreciate you passing it on to them. Thank you.

Starting A New School Year – How Will it Be?

With the start of a new school year, there are often different feelings that come up. It is natural to have feelings about a new situation and wondering how it will be. With the start of this school year, 2021, students of all ages, preschool through graduate and parents too, may be having more feelings of trepidation, uncertainty, fear, anticipation, anxiety, performance anxiety, embarrassed, worry about safety and health than usual. There may also be feelings of excitement, finally, and yay back at school.

I think for any child, and parent, there is a mixture of feelings. Wondering, how will this school year be?

I want to add that these kinds of feelings may also be experienced by people regarding their jobs. They may be starting a new job or going back to work after having been working at home.

Sometimes people – children, teenagers, adults – develop physical symptoms from having an upsetting experience or from anticipating something that may happen. The physical symptoms could be stomachaches, headaches, nausea, diarrhea, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, menstrual changes, skin eruptions, obsessive behaviors, phobias, fears, nightmares, sore throats, breathing difficulties, earaches, colds, flus, and more.

The emotional state and the physical state of a person are connected. Each are pieces making up the totality of the person. Homeopathy looks at the totality of the person.

ANXIETY

I want to specifically address anxiety. Several mothers I talked to recently suggested that I write about this regarding college age students. A thank you to these two mothers for the suggestion.

anxiety word

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 term/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.

To ask and seek out help is a very positive, constructive action to take whether for yourself or a loved one.

I Have This _____? Can Homeopathy Help Me?

Recently, I was asked if homeopathy could help with plantar fasciitis. She said since she hadn’t read about it on my website, she wondered if homeopathy could help.

I said yes.

I was very glad she had asked about this. I thought perhaps other people may have had the same thought that homeopathy could not help them if they hadn’t read anything written about it in my information, website, blog, and newsletter. Since not seeing the name of it, they may have thought that homeopathy could not help them.

We often need to read specifically what we “have” written about, or to hear a story of someone like us using a particular healing modality before we may consider it. For example to know if homeopathy has helped someone with plantar fasciitis, then someone may look into homeopathy.

Homeopathy focuses on how the individual experiences what is bothering them. When a homeopath meets with a puzzle-14451_960_720person the general and usual symptoms of what is bothering is heard, such as with plantar fasciitis, AND, other symptoms of the individual are heard too. These symptoms can be about their emotional state, other physical symptoms they experience, mental functioning, sleep, dreams, fears and more. All of this, these pieces, are taken together to make up the totality of the person. The totality is what is focused on to heal. The plantar fasciitis is one of the pieces, or several of them.

The given homeopathic remedy is similar to this totality. The main principle of homeopathy is LIKE CURES LIKE, or The Law of Similars. The homeopathic remedy that is given is for the totality of the person, including the plantar fasciitis. This could be said for any “this is what I have”, name of a disease or syndrome that someone is experiencing, autoimmune diseases included. The “have” is a piece of the total picture. 

I find that a lot of people have been give a name to what is bothering them. They may be having treatment for it, but are not feeling better. At this point, they may be looking for other healing modalities. That is why they ask me, “I have this __________________,  can homeopathy help me?”

If there is a health issue you or a loved one are experiencing and you haven’t seen anything written about it in my information, I invite you to contact me. Let’s talk. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call or Zoom meeting to see if homeopathy is something you would want to pursue. I see people local to and outside of the San Diego area, and people of all ages, babies to older adults. You can contact me here, or on my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

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.

ladder in the woods -4681114_960_720

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.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one regarding a health issue, I encourage you to contact me through this blog or though my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is something you want to pursue regarding your health. .

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.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopthytoheal.com.  I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is something you want to pursue at this time.

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.
