Children Who Are “Stressed”, Homeopathy Helps

With two calls this week about potential patients, I thought it was time to write this blog post. I had written a blog post about stress and had mentioned at the end of it (STRESS and Homeopathy) that we don’t often use the word “stress” when talking about children. But children do respond to things happening in their lives, are stressed, and have an automatic response to outside pressures, just as adults do.

Both phone calls were to see if homeopathy would be helpful for a child. One was younger than 5, the other was a preteen. Both children have seen or are seeing a therapist;  neither have started any kind of western medication.  Children do very well with homeopathy. It is a wonderful time to start homeopathy when they are young. I have been saying since these two phone calls that these children are at a fork in the road. If they go down the western medicine road, they will most likely be given medication, and that often snowballs, leading from one medication to another one. These two children are both too young to start this, and why do this to children anyway?

The following are some of the symptoms and behaviors we may see in a child who is having difficulties and is stressed: fears, phobias, depression, oppositional type of behaviors, acting out, bed wetting, PTSD type of symptoms, withdrawal, tantrums, difficulty concentrating, anxiousness, anger, crying, sadness, chronic colds or stomachaches, headaches, difficulty sleeping, nightmares, eating difficulties, digestion issues, skin eruptions and more. Actually anything, and everything. It is just how the child manifests his stress.

In some ways, children don’t have as much control over their environment as adults do. (Although adults may feel that they don’t have any control either, and that may be part of their automatic response).  The child may be responding and reacting to different things or events that are happening in his life.  The event or situation may have triggered the child’s sensitivity, and thus symptoms and behaviors are being expressed, some of them listed above.

I know as parents, we all do our best and want our children to be happy, healthy, safe, to be loved, loving, and develop into their full potential as human beings. With all our good intentions as parents, we sometimes don’t have control over things that do happen to our children, or to us. Things happen in life; changes occur; and we just go with it as best as we can.  Some of these events and situations could be: how a person is being treated, family issues, divorce, separation, financial changes, loss of a family member, poverty, reaction to medications or vaccines, malnutrition, abuse, disability, war, exposure to chemicals or drugs, food sensitivities, a difficult birth or start to life and more.

When someone brings their child to homeopathy, the homeopath is learning about this child’s sensitivity. This is done through observation, listening to both the parents and the child, finding out about dreams, finding out what bothers them, the child’s likes and dislikes, and more. With all of this, the homeopath gives a homeopathic remedy that is similar. The remedy stimulates the child’s healing process, and the sensitivity quiets down, the automatic response lessens, and the symptoms ease off. For example, the bed wetting has stopped, oppositional behavior has eased, fears have quieted down, coughs and breathing difficulties are no longer occurring. The situation may have not changed, but there is a shift in the child, and now he is able to move on, and handle things better in his life, perhaps even changing his situation if he can. A healing has occurred.

I Am Feeling SO Anxious – Homeopathy Heals

 ANXIETY – ANXIOUSNESS

 We all experience anxiety, sometime. It is part of life. But when it is present most of the time, or extremely intense, it can get to the point that it restricts and limits how we live our lives. We may use medication, meditation, food, deep breathing, excessive alcohol or drug use, to help calm or distract ourselves. All these may help, at the time, to a point, but they don’t really heal what is going on inside of us.

Some of what we are anxious about could be:

  • Performance and how we appear to others – stage fright, presentation, interviews.
  • Family members -their health, their financial situation, their safety
  • Ourselves – marital status, finances, career, education, success, health, family, safety, aging, moving, having a new baby, becoming a father or mother, loss of a loved one.
  • Travel – by air,  going to another country, eating different kinds of food.

Some ways that anxiety could be expressed:

  • Physical symptoms -heart palpitations, butterflies in stomach, dry mouth, sweaty palms, diarrhea, antsy, vomiting, insomnia, digestive issues.
  • Emotional and mental symptoms – persistent thoughts, paralyzing fears, anticipating – what ifs, worries, phobias, nightmares.

No two anxieties are really alike. There could be common experiences, symptoms and reactions, some of which I have mentioned above, but underneath, deep down, each person experiences their anxieties uniquely to them. This is how homeopathy approaches any ill state, by finding out through observation, listening, uncovering what the ill state is like for this person.

I want to tell you about a woman who was extremely anxious, and how homeopathy helped her. She was very concerned about her family and their safety to the point that her teenage children could not be left alone in the house unless she was there, or another adult was in the house with them. This may be appropriate for young children, but not needed for teenagers. She was afraid that someone would break into the house. And if she had a driving trip coming up, and she was the driver, she was very anxious that she would possibly lose control of the car. This anxiousness and anticipation would start several weeks before the trip with her having nightmares. After taking the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what she was experiencing, her anxiety lessened. She was able to leave her teenagers alone in the house, her driving trips become uneventful, and she was no longer anxious before the trip.

Homeopathy heals at the core or root of where the anxiety is coming from. With this deep healing, the other symptoms – physical, emotional and mental – also become less and are healed.

If you see yourself a little bit in this blog post, perhaps it is time to see how homeopathy can be of help to you.

Homeopathic Healing – Inside to the Outside

In many self improvement, motivational books and classes, there is the thought that if we are not happy with our life situation and want to change it, we need to change ourselves first, change our thinking, change our inner talk and language, change our mindset, and become in touch with what we want. This is changing the inside. With these inside changes, the outside will reflect this. And then changes to our situation will have occurred. It will be easier to make these changes since there has been a shift inside of us.

Vortex

This is how we want a healing to be, not just a palliating of our symptoms until we need to take the medication again, but a real healing. This is what a homeopathic healing is like. The healing first is on the inside, then reflected on the outside. So it could be that a person is feeling better in themselves, experiencing a good sense of well being, but their skin eruption may be worse. Then as the healing continues, the skin is better. This is from the inside to the outside.

If you haven’t read my blog post STRESS and Homeopathy, posted in September 2013, please do. I talk about how stress is a part of life, and things will just happen. It is what I call our automatic response mode that can cause ill health; it is not the outside, that is the stress. Our automatic response is the inside. As the inside heals, how we handle our lives changes.

Healing from the inside to the outside is one Dr. Constantine Herring’s Directions of Cure. The other two healing directions are from the top (the head) to the bottom (the feet), and from newer symptoms to older ones.  (I wrote more about the Direction of Cure in a May 2013 blog post titled The Direction of Cure: How Homeopathy Assesses Healing, in Regards to Asthma and Eczema.)

In this blog post, I wanted to point out the similarity between working on our inner selves and the healing with homeopathy.  Both help one move from a place or state of disturbance, chaos, ill health, being stuck, to a state of health, freedom, potential fulfillment, choice, growth and well being. Actually, I have found that one moves faster and sustains the work they do on the inner selves even more, when they have also invested in homeopathic healing. I believe this is so, because homeopathy works on an energetic plane. We become ill on an energetic plane, and we need to heal on that plane. Again, this is the inside.
