We Each Have Our Own Sensitivity

Sensitivity.

We all have our own sensitivity. Why does something bother one person, but the very same thing doesn’t bother another person?  I often give the example of a skin eruption on someone’s hand. For one person, it bothers them so much to the point that they will seek out any and all kinds of treatment to help. Another person, hardly notices it, or if they do, it doesn’t bother them. They live with it. One person is bothered by it, the other is not. One is sensitive about it, the other is not.

Different Sensitivities

Some sensitivities that people may experience are:                                                                                                                          dandalion

  • to noise, to crowds, to fabrics, to foods, to temperatures, to smells, to certain types of people, to violence, to blood, to over stimulation, to under stimulation, to pain, to pressure, to situations, to traveling, to dirt, to germs, and more.

Parts of the body or the functioning of parts of the body that may be more sensitive in someone are:

  • the stomach – digestive issues, the head – migraines, frequent colds, sore throats, respiratory issues, menstrual issues, hormonal issues – in both women and men, skin eruptions, anxiousness, depression/melancholy, fears and phobias, muscular aches and pains, sleep issues, nightmares, eating issues, and more.

Hearing The Sensitivity – A Case of A Boy

The sensitivity is what I hear when someone comes to see me for homeopathy. I hear what bothers the person. I hear how they experience their sensitivity. I hear how they live with the sensitivity, either compensating, making it go away, accepting it, or avoiding it. I hear how the sensitivity affects their life.

I want to tell you about a boy whose parents brought him in for homeopathic care. He was 20 months old at the time. The boy was experiencing nasal congestion, fevers, and possible ear infections, in which several courses of antibiotics had been given. The antibiotics had helped for four weeks, then the congestion, the fevers, the discomfort in the ear returned. He went through this cycle for several months.

As I spoke to the parents and observed the boy, I saw that he had a sensitivity to noise and sounds. His mother told me that when a sound was loud, or if he heard a far off sound, such as an airplane, actually hearing it before she did, he would run to her. She thought that the sounds were scary or frightening to him. He was not saying how he experienced the sounds through words, but showing through his behaviors, reactions, and responses to the sounds. There was a sensitivity to sound. I wondered if the sounds felt uncomfortable or painful to him in some way. Whatever it was, the sounds and noises were too much for him. I really didn’t know how the sounds specifically affected him, but they bothered him greatly, in some way.

boy with truck 2 cartoonThis sensitivity to sound was also expressed as he played. He would make the sounds of trucks, imitating the noises that trucks make as they move, back up, carry things, and push materials. To me, this also showed how sensitive he was to sound. He heard things well, and could reproduce the sounds that he heard.

He has done well with the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what he was experiencing. He hasn’t needed to have any more antibiotics. He has had a few fevers and nasal congestion, but has been able to move through them without any lingering problems. I would be curious to know how his sensitivity to sound and noises are. I would think that he may have less of a sensitivity to them.

Healing With Homeopathy

The sensitivity to sounds is not why the boy’s parents brought him in for homeopathic care. But this sensitivity was very characteristic of him as an individual person, and very much part of him. Homeopathy looks at, and focuses on the whole person. We all of our own sensitivity, and sensitive areas in our body. This is where we may experience symptoms, discomfort, or flare ups when we are experience situations that are stressful physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. With homeopathic care, the sensitivity becomes less and quiets down.

What is your sensitivity? I invite you to contact me either here through the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com  and set up a Get Acquainted Call. I do work with people who don’t live near me using Skype.

It Starts Within Us – A Healing With Homeopathy

It starts within us.

We react to something that happens in our life. The response can be emotional, physical, and/or mental. It can be experienced or shown by a feeling, a sensation in the body, a particular symptom, a thought, a behavior. It is like an automatic response. It just happens.

An Automatic Response

These are some automatic responses I have heard expressed in my practice:

  • Angry, extreme angry, when someone drives in front of the person and cuts them off. The person curses at the other driver, and may even get out of his car and confront the other driver, in a very angry way.
  • Concerned about doing one’s best at work, to the point that they don’t even start working. They procrastinate. Being fearful of not doing the work well, and/or of failing.
  • Being isolated from the outside world. Wanting very much to be part of life, to be involved with the community, to be in a relationship, to do work that is meaningful. Feeling that they need to protect themselves.
  • Being very nervous and worried about one’s family members, to the point of not allowing their older children to be at home alone.
  • Having a very upset stomach, and needing to know where the public bathrooms are located, just in case.
  • Wanting to run away, and hide.
  • Fevers and not feeling well, that result in a possible ear infection, in which course after course of antibiotics are given.
  • Wanting to take revenge on someone else when they have been insulted, hurt, or being told what to do.

Each of us has our responses, our automatic responses, that we go to when something happens in our life. What is your automatic response?

Healing Is Within

Just as our automatic response is within us, the healing comes from within us too.

Recently a woman who has been having homeopathic care, was sick with a lingering, deep chest cough that developed into tree reflectionpneumonia. In the past, when she was sick, she would still get up, get out of bed, and go to work. If she had an event she was hosting and responsible for, she would go and attend to what she needed to do. During this recent time when she was sick, she did not go to her job, nor did she go to the events that were scheduled. She was able to say I cannot go, I am sick. Here is the information and the materials you will need for the event. Everything is all prepared and ready. She was able to let go, and allow herself to rest and to heal.

You may ask, how can she be better if she is sick?

The letting go is very healthy for her. Yes, she is sick, on a physical level, but she is feeling better within herself. She is able to let go of the responsibilities and the feelings of obligation in her life, and allow herself to rest and get better. This is health for her.

Health

These are examples of what others have experienced as they are healing and are in a more healthful state.

  • Feeling less angry. Responding less with angry comments when something happens in their life.
  • Able to do the work at their job, with less feelings of fear and anxiousness of the possibility of it not being correct or that they will fail.
  • Sharing themselves with other people and being more out in the world.
  • Less worried and nervous about the safety of her children.
  • Calmer stomach, no longer in dire need of the public bathrooms.
  • Able to stay in the situation, and not have the feeling of running away and hiding.
  • Less fevers, and no longer having the need for antibiotics.
  • The response to get back at someone is no longer present.

Homeopathy helps with this healing, with creating this awareness, with quieting the automatic response. The healing is happening within. This is health.

Being Empowered In Our Own Health Care – Being Whole

I was talking to someone recently, who was seeing several medical doctors for a specific health concern. The person was also doing homeopathic care. What is very usual for someone in this position, is that each doctor has a different specialty, a different discipline, or a different slant on how to handle the health concern. For the patient, it can be very confusing and overwhelming.

Each medical specialty focuses on a certain type of treatment, or a certain part of the body, or a certain function of the body. Often the specialist will push their specialty, their knowledge, their discipline, in how to handle the person’s health concern, and what to do next in the treatment.

What To Do?

What do we do? How do we handle all the experts, all the information that is out there?

We do our research – externally and internally. We talk to people who are part of the situation and are knowledgeable, and/or who we respect. We talk to our support system. And we listen to ourselves. We go by what makes sense to us. We put ourselves into an empowering place, being informed, knowledgeable, and responsible for our health and health care.

Being Whole

I think it is being in touch with our wholeness. We are not just seeing ourselves as parts, or as a health label jigsaw-313586_640 (disease), as the specialists are seeing us. We are looking at ourselves as a whole person. To me, this is one of the wonderful aspects of homeopathy. Homeopathy is truly a holism medicine; addressing the whole person, and addressing the individual person.

I mentioned that this person was also using homeopathy along with the western medications. The homeopathic remedy being used addresses him. It is not a remedy for the part, or the health concern. This is how the specialists may look at it. It is a homeopathic remedy for the him, stimulating his healing, and strengthening his immune system.

Homeopathy To Heal

This is what I do as a homeopath. This is my expertise. It is learning about, listening, understanding, observing, and witnessing what it is that bothers the person. Then giving the homeopathic remedy that is similar to them. This homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing abilities. With the person mentioned above, the homeopathic remedy addresses him as a whole, it is not for the parts, nor for the name of the health concern.

I know I have not given you any specifics of a health concern. It doesn’t always matter what the name or the label is, it is how and what the person experiences.

A Book On Homeopathy – IMPOSSIBLE CURE

I write this blog to educate people on homeopathy, letting them know about homeopathy and how it can be helpful in their health care.

I want to tell you about a wonderful book on homeopathy. It is IMPOSSIBLE CURE by Amy Lansky.

Amy and I were students together at The School of Homeopathy. In IMPOSSIBLE CURE, Amy the impossible curegives a very good overview of homeopathy: the history, the philosophy, the homeopathic remedies, and more. She also writes about her son, and how homeopathy helped him. Amy Lansky is a homeopath, a writer, and a big advocate of homeopathy.

You may find the book in your local library. If not, it is available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
