A Talk To A Fibromyalgia Support Group On Homeopathy

A couple of weeks ago, I did a talk on homeopathy to a fibromyalgia support group. I was pleased to have this opportunity to people figures in circletalk to people about homeopathy, and to this group particularly. It was a small group of very interested women. (If any of you who attended the talk are reading this post now, it was nice to meet you all.) What I enjoyed so much was their interest and their involvement. They had a lot of questions, and shared about themselves, about their experiences with their health, and about their lives. This is the kind of talk I like to give, and be part of.

List Of Symptoms

If you google fibromyalgia on the internet, you will see a list of symptoms. I have listed them below. Someone may experience some of these symptoms. Someone may experience all of them. And someone may experience these symptoms, and not have the diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

  • deep muscle pain and soreness
  • morning stiffness
  • flu-like aching
  • radiating pain
  • sensitivity to touch
  • problems sleeping
  • fatigue
  • difficulty thinking clearly
  • difficulty performing every day tasks
  • stress and anxiety
  • depression
  • migraine headaches

This is a list. It doesn’t really say anything about the person. Yes, people who have fibromyalgia may experience these symptoms, but there are other things about their health that bother them. And each person might have an additional list of things that bother them which is more descriptive of them as the person they are.

Healing With Homeopathy

With homeopathy, the homeopath will hear about these symptoms on the list, and also will hear, see, observe, and witness more of what is bothering the individual person. I am always saying that homeopathy is treating the person, who has ________, in this case fibromyalgia. Homeopathy is not treating the disease, nor the name of the health concern. The homeopathic remedy given is similar to what the individual person is experiencing. It is not a homeopathic remedy for fibromyalgia.

woman by the waterThese women most likely experience some or all of the symptoms listed above. Plus, they experience others things that bother them. If I was going to ask each of them, what bothers them the most, each would say something different from each other. Each woman is different, despite having the same diagnosis of fibromyalgia, A very simple example of this, is that one woman said that she felt worse, and her symptoms were worse when there was cold weather. And another woman said she was worse during hot weather. These two women have different experiences. We are all different.

There were five women in the group. I am pretty sure that each of these woman would need a different homeopathic remedy that addresses how and what they experience. Each one being different and unique. Conventional medicine has a one size fits all approach. The same medication is given to everyone for a health concern, not looking at each person as an individual. Homeopathy sees the individual person, treating the person.

You Say You Are Anxious. What Is The Anxiety Like For You?

Anxiety.

I had a patient say to me that she is so anxious. Jittery. Once she sits down, she says, she can’t, and doesn’t get up and do anything.

I have heard of teenagers being so anxious  And not necessarily having ways to cope with it.                                                 anxious

I have had parents tell me their child is anxious in school. The child feels bad about themselves when they don’t do an assignment well.

I have heard a woman say I have anxiety.

And I have heard people saying that they anxiety attacks.

What Is This Anxiety?

What is this anxiety that they are all talking about? All of these people are using the word anxious to describe something of what they are feeling and experiencing. And each person as they are speaking describe this something, this anxiousness, differently. The word anxious is a generic term. It really doesn’t say what THIS person is experiencing.

As a homeopath, I am finding out how the person experiences what bothers them. The word anxiety really doesn’t tell me what the person is experiencing. There IS something that is bothering them, and they have used the word anxious. I want to know what this anxiousness is like for the person. What do they mean by it? How do they feel it in their body? How do they experience it? My understanding of what is bothering them is going deeper than the anxiety. It is going to the disturbance or the core problem. And this is where the healing occurs.

The anxiety is a symptom, just as a headache, a stomach ache, a rash, a terrible fear, and difficulty sleeping are symptoms. The symptoms are all expressions of the disturbance. With the healing of the disturbance, the symptoms, and the anxiety, which is one of the symptoms, is experienced less and less and less.

What Is The Anxiety Like For You

What is the anxiety like for you? It as a sign that something needs to be addressed. There are modalities that are helpful, such as counseling, having a support group, doing physical activities, doing an activity that you enjoy and nourishes you, and being nice to yourself.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can be of help for your health, for your anxiety. I would love to hear from you. Contact me here through the blog post or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com I have a 15 minute complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

The Same Pattern Of You

Several weeks ago, I was having lunch with a woman I had met recently. We were learning about what each of us do, and having a good time doing so. She had heard of the word homeopathy, she said. And as we were talking, she realized that she really did not know what homeopathy was, and now she had a better understanding of it.

She said, homeopathy is like giving someone the same pattern of them.

pattern 3Yes, I said, what a wonderful way of saying it – the same pattern.

The Same Pattern

It is giving the same pattern of what the person is experiencing – in their illness, in their problem, in their stuckness. Giving the homeopathic remedy that is the same pattern, the similar to that of the person. This is like cures like or The Law of Similars.

Very simply, if someone is having difficulty sleeping, is an insomniac, and is very wound up at night, they may do well with the homeopathic remedy Coffea crudum. Coffea crudum is made from the coffee plant. And if someone who has allergies or a cold with stinging, burning sensations in their eyes, and a lot of tearing from their eyes and their nose, they may do well with the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa. Allium cepa is made from the onion. These are two simple examples of like cures like. Giving the same pattern, giving the same pattern of what the person’s suffering is like. Actually that is what homeopathy means, similar suffering.

What Is The Pattern

As a homeopath, I hear what the problem is, what the suffering is for the person. It is not just the symptoms. Symptoms are signs or the manifestations of the deeper problem. I am listening, observing, witnessing, the deeper problem, getting to know what the person’s pattern is. And then giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy. Giving the same pattern, as my new friend said. This similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing abilities, pushing them them through were they are stuck. And lessening and quieting down the pattern.

The pattern can be doing the same thing over and over again, having the same reaction to things, having the same physical flare up. Going round and round. I sometimes experience my own going round and round, and that is why years ago, I sought out homeopathic care. I continue to see my homeopath when needed. I do not treat myself. Homeopathy helps to quiet down and lessen my pattern, my round and round.

Healing Your Pattern With Homeopathy

What is your pattern? Or a loved ones pattern? I would be happy to talk to you further on how homeopathy can quiet down your pattern, your round and round. Either contact me here through the blog or through my website  www.homeopathytoheal.com   I have a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Are You Just Not Feeling Well? Homeopathy Heals

A man asked me recently if I see people in my homeopathic practice who have psychosomatic illnesses. I interpreted his question as being –

  • someone has not been feeling well
  • has seen their doctor
  • their doctor did not find anything wrong with them, after doing an examination and different tests were given (It is always good to check things out with your doctor.)
  • a prescription medication for anti-anxiety, depression or a tranquilizer type of medication may have been suggested
  • the person may have taken or not taken the medication
  • the person is not feeling well, still

Yes, I see people like that, I said to this man. In fact, I call it  – just not feeling well.

Just Not Feeling Well

I think we know when we are not feeling well. We circles in waterknow ourselves. It is an inner listening and knowing what feels right and what does not feel right. This man was saying, he wasn’t feeling well. He wasn’t feeling like himself, although the doctor did not find anything wrong, and may have labelled it psychosomatic. This man is still not feeling well.

People come to homeopathy for many reasons, and sometimes it is that they are just not feeling well, or not feeling like themselves. One woman I spoke to recently was talking about emotional issues that she was experiencing. She wanted to let go of some negative emotions that were keeping her stuck, and move forward in her life. She didn’t mention any physical symptoms that were bothering her.

We can not feel well on any level – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We are more than just physical symptoms. When someone is not feeling well, whatever the symptoms are, or on whatever level the person is not feeling well, it is the vital force or the life energy of the person saying, hey something is not right. We need to listen to this.

A homeopathic remedy that is similar to what the person is experiencing is given – Like Cures Like. This homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s vital force, or own healing process. The healing is on all levels, the physical, the emotional, the mental, and the spiritual. The person is healing themselves.

What Someone May Be Experiencing When Just Not Feeling Well

These could be how the not feeling well is experienced:

  • anxiousness
  • a gnawing feeling inside – emotionally or physically
  • depression
  • sadness
  • not sleeping well
  • dreams that are unsettling
  • stomach upsets and other digestive issues
  • sneezing without a cold or allergies
  • a malaise
  • lack of energy and/or lack of motivation
  • lack of focus
  • changes in eating habits
  • headaches
  • with children – changes in behaviors, eating, sleeping
  • concern on how to handle a situation
  • stress at work

Healing With Homeopathy

Is there something that you are just not feeling well about? And you have seen your doctor and you are still not feeling well? Homeopathy can be of help. I encourage you to contact me here on the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com to talk about how homeopathy can be of help to you, or a loved one.

Your Voice

I am a homeopath. I help people heal and feel better through a natural, non-invasive, form of medicine (homeopathy) that stimulates a person’s own natural healing process. It is a deep healing. For me, it is important to show and to tell people that they have options for their health care. When someone is in a more healthy state, they are more of who they are as a person. They are involved in relationships, in work, and in activities that are nurturing to them. And they express who they are. They express their voice.

I am also an artist. Art really is my first love. I say it is the core of me. Homeopathy has at times come very close. I haven’t always done art wood paintedwork, and over the last few years I have started doing art work again, using a different medium than I had in the past. I am painting now, where before I had been weaving tapestries. Art fills me in a way that nothing else does. It is wow! It is look at that, that color next to that color! It is a feeling deep, deep inside of joy, wonder, excitement and wow!

Why am I writing this?

Perhaps, homeopathy and art to me are connected in some way. Or are similar. I would like them to be connected/similar, or have a connection. I would like to bring to my homeopathic practice, what I bring and experience in my art work. It is a feeling of presence, a state of wow, being who I am, an openness, and a listening. Listening to the art to know what to do next, and in the case of homeopathy it is listening to the patient, being open to them. It is not being in my head.

Being Who You Are

Be who you are, and allowing that to come out, freely. And to do it all the time. Allowing your voice to be expressed, freely. Whether you are –

  • A boy who is very sensitive to his surroundings.
  • A woman who has a deep concern for other people’s well-being and health.
  • A man who wants to be recognized for his work, and to be sure his family is well taken care.

– all three expressing their voice.

Being who you are and expressing your voice. Not being stopped by a health symptom or condition, a behavior, nor a thought. Being in a healthy place. A healing with homeopathy helps with this. And art helps with this, too.

I wish for all of you – health, passion for what you do, love, and your voice.
