A Personal Healing With Homeopathy

I am a homeopath. I am a patient too. I see a homeopath. I don’t self treat for homeopathic care. I may self treat for first aid, and there were several times I did for chronic conditions, but I don’t now. I cannot be objective, nor can I really hear and observe myself. I can’t wear two hats at the same time – the patient and the homeopath.

My Story

This last week, my homeopath gave me a new homeopathic remedy. This happens. The homeopath sees the case deeper, some things change, or there is a better understanding of the person’s complaints and suffering. A different homeopathic remedy is needed than to what was given before. This new homeopathic remedy was in the same family, the same kingdom, of the one I had just be taking. The former homeopathic remedy had helped, but did not heal as deeply as is possible with homeopathy.

With taking this new homeopathic remedy, an old condition or symptom that I had before, came back. I had suppressed this condition, this situation by using antibiotics when it had first occurred. With the process of healing from a homeopathic remedy, the vital force, the chi, the immune system, becomes stronger, and the symptoms or conditions that were suppressed by the use of medications, such as antibiotics and steroids (cream and oral form) may come back. These symptoms/conditions come back for a short time, and then they are gone. It is healing. In a previous blog, I had written about THE DIRECTION OF CURE. That is what this is. It is a good sign that the remedy is helping and healing, stimulating the person’s own healing process.

That is what was happening with me. The antibiotics that I had taken had been suppressive, and now there was a return of older symptoms/conditions, seashell-754014_640as I was healing. I knew that was what was happening to me, and it was a good thing. I contacted my homeopath and told him, and he agreed with me. In fact what he said was “this is a good thing”. I slept. I took care of the area that was affected. I took care of me. I wasn’t very hungry, but what I did eat was of plant type food, so to speak. Vegetarian. Nourishing food. Life giving food.

Yes, there is a place and a need for antibiotics. They can be extremely helpful, and life saving. And, they can be overused. When I had this situation originally, I could have treated it homeopathically. I didn’t. At first, I didn’t know what was going on with the discomfort and the pain that I was experiencing, and I waited. Then I went to the doctor. The doctor prescribed antibiotics. This happens.

Healing

With the healing of old, suppressed symptoms and conditions, the body, the chi, the vital force, the person, becomes stronger and healthier. This healing affects the whole person, on all levels – the physical, the emotional, the mental, and the spiritual. It is all good. Homeopathy creates a deep healing. It is a healing at the root from where the symptoms and conditions come.

Much of what western medicine does in its treatment can be suppressive. Yes, the person feels better because the symptoms are not as strong, the itch may be gone, the pain may be gone, but only for a short time until the medication is taken again. We may very often think that a healing has occurred if we no longer have the symptoms, or have less of them, but we need to take a medication often and regularly so there are no symptoms. This isn’t a healing. It is a palliating, and can also be suppressing too.

Healing With Homeopathy

For me, this experience shows how well homeopathy heals, and how well it addresses each of us, as the individual person we are. My health concern was heard, observed, and understood. The homeopathic remedy given to me, being similar to what I was experiencing (Like Cures Like) stimulated my own body to heal. To heal, not to palliate, not to ease the symptoms, and not to suppress. To heal.

I invite you to heal. Very simple. Contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I have a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

People Showing An Interest in Homeopathy, And Wanting To Know More

A lot of people I talk to have used the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana. Actually, I think Arnica montana is what  150 - boiron arnicaintroduces a lot of people to homeopathy.

What I Hear From People Who Have Used Arnica Montana

People tell me that they use Arnica montana for all different kinds of situations. One woman has used it when she had sprained her ankle. Another woman mentioned that her friend used Arnica montana when they had knee surgery. A mom has said they she uses Arnica montana when her child falls down at the playground. And a man has said that his dentist very often suggests that he use Arnica montana after he has had dental work, such as a filling or an extraction. In all of these situations, Arnica montana has helped. (Click here to read a blog about Arnica montana.)

When I am talking with someone who has a sprained or strained their arm. leg, ankle or wrist, and they have used Arnica montana, I may mention the homeopathic remedy Ruta grav. Often, this remedy is new to the person. They have not heard of it before. And I may mention that it is better to use homeopathy orally, in pellet form, than to use it topically as a cream or ointment, such as ArnicaGel. Generally, homeopathy is used orally, which promotes a deep healing.

And then I say, there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies.

Over 4000 Homeopathic Remedies

People don’t know that there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies. And it isn’t important that they do know. They know of Arnica montana, and maybe they know of a few other homeopathic remedies, and have used them for a stomach ache, indigestion, pain, a cold, or a fever. They have seen 50 homeopathic remedies at their local health food store. People purchase them, self treat, going by what is printed on the label.

Why I mention that there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies is that there is so much more to homeopathy than helping with bruising, traumas, falls, surgeries, which Arnica montana is so helpful for. Homeopathy does help in first aid and acute care, like colds, flus, stomach aches, AND, homeopathy is so helpful for chronic conditions, where other forms of healing, including western conventional medicine has not helped.

So when I say there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies, what I am saying is – you, who have used homeopathy and it has helped, and you who have shown an interest in homeopathy, why not see how homeopathy can be helpful for other health concerns that you or your loved ones may experience. Such as:

  • chronic ear infections, sore throats, stomach aches, colds.
  • on going nightmares and/or fears.
  • a child who is having difficulty at school in terms of behavior, focusing, or paying attention.
  • bedwetting.
  • menstrual difficulties.
  • migraines and other types of headaches.
  • depression, anxiety, fearfulness, difficulty getting out of the house.
  • skin eruptions – eczema, psoriasis, warts, moles, rashes.
  • digestive issues.
  • fatigue, no energy, tires easily.
  • respiratory difficulties – asthma.
  • allergies – seasonal, foods.
  • muscular aches and pains.
  • not well since.
  • just not feeling well.

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy treats the individual person. To me this one of the wonderful aspects of homeopathy. Homeopathy is truly a spiral of colorsmedicine of the individual. The homeopathic practitioner (the homeopath), through observation, listening, questioning, is finding out how each person experiences their particular health concern. Two people can come in for homeopathic treatment, each having the similar complaint, let say headaches, but underneath, deep down to the root cause, each of these two people experience their headache uniquely to them, and differently from each other. The homeopath is hearing, listening and observing each person.

A homeopathic remedy is given, that is similar to what the person is experiencing. The homeopathic remedy is for the individual. This remedy, one out of 4000, stimulates the person’s own wonderful healing ability. The person is feeling better, their immune system is stronger, and what brought the person in is getting better, such as the headaches, from the example I gave.

I write this blog to educate, to deepen, and to broaden people’s knowledge of homeopathy. I invite those who already have an interest in homeopathy; those who have used homeopathy, finding it helpful; and those who are new to homeopathy and have an interest in holistic medicine, to see how homeopathy can be of help in yours and your loved ones healing.

The Flu – What To Do? Homeopathy Helps

f letterIt is just about the start of flu season. I think we very often don’t know what to do about the flu. We become scared that we may get sick. And the media often adds to that fear. Some years we hear that the the particular strain of the flu is very virulent, and then it turns out that it was a mild season. We think, I most do anything so I and my family don’t come down with the flu.

What to do?

The first thing is to take good care of yourself and your family. Rest, eat good wholesome fresh food, drink liquids, wash your hands, listen to your body, exercise, go outside and get fresh air, do activities that you enjoy.

If you do become ill, rest and sleep, drink fluids, eat if you want to, don’t eat if you don’t want, listen to what your body letter lneeds. If you do have a fever, a fever is the way your body heals itself. The heat of the body kills off the bacteria and/or virus. A fever is a good thing. Vitamin A, D and C are helpful. Homeopathy is helpful too. I think it is important to know that if someone does become ill with the flu, that there are ways to help with the healing, and not to be scared.

Homeopathy Helps During The Flu 

During the 1918-1919 influenza epidemic in the USA, homeopathic physicians recorded that those patients treated with homeopathy had a much lower mortality rate than those treated with conventional medicine.

There are homeopathic remedies that are helpful for when one feels ill from the flu. Often in a flu season, there are 2 – 3 specific homeopathic remedies that are good for that particular strain of flu. If you are not moving through the flu in a letter ureasonable amount of time, then homeopathy could be very helpful. Observe how you are feeling, and select a homeopathic remedy that is similar to how your are feeling. To read more about using homeopathic remedies if and when you come down with flu, click here to read that post.

Homeopathy Helps After The Flu

Sometimes, someone goes through the flu fine, but then there are some lingering affects. The person may tire easily. There may be a persistent cough. Their appetite may not have returned to what it was before they had become ill. Someone may feel light headed; experience aches and pains; have an off and on low grade fever; or just not feel well. This lingering experience may be longer than a few months. For example, someone may have a health condition for several years, and when asked what was going on when this condition started, the person may say I had the flu, and it was back in 2012, three years ago. Homeopathy is helpful in these kinds of situations – not well since having the flu. Click here to read more about never been well since the flu.

Homeopathy Heals

The homeopath listens to how each person experiences what bothers them. With the flu, the homeopath is hearing how the person is experiencing the flu – what their symptoms are like; their emotional state; wanting to be alone or wanting to be with company; their thirst; aches and pains; fevers and more. A homeopathic remedy is then selected that is similar to this. This similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s innate healing abilities, and the person starts to feel better. Homeopathy is safe, gentle, and non toxic. And to know too that it is safe for pregnant women and nursing mothers to use.

It is good to know that if you do become ill with the flu, homeopathy can help and heal. If you have the flu, or are experiencing lingering affects of the flu, I invite you to contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I would be very happy to talk with you.

Another Good Book To Read – GOD’S HOTEL

  • Time, allowing time in which to heal.
  • We are not a machine.
  • Vitalism. There is a life force within each of us. This force helps us heal ourselves.

These are some of the ideas/topics that Dr. Victoria Sweet writes about in her book GOD’S HOTEL.

GOD’S HOTEL

Dr. Sweet writes about the years she worked at the Laguana Honda Hospital in San Francisco. This was a hospital for the in god's hotelvery poor, who had no where else to go to recuperate, to heal, or to spend their last years. Dr. Sweet writes about medicine, about healing, about people, and about her own journey in medicine and what she experiences as healing. I felt that some of what she wrote is so similar to the way homeopathy looks at health, at healing, and how each person is an individual – (the above three lines.)

From The Book

Here is several paragraphs from her book.

“Although, as I researched Hildegard’s concept of viriditas for my PhD and tried to understand what she meant by it, I discovered that premodern medicine did have a name for this magical act that the body performs. It was called the vis medicatrix naturae, usually translated as “the healing power of nature.” But this is not a great translation. Vis is related to vim and vigor and means the force of life, of youth, of newness. Medicatrix is related to remedy and medication. And naturae does not mean nature as in “Mother Nature,” but rather your nature, my nature …. It means the nature of us to be ourselves. So the vis medicatrix naturae is really “the remedying force of your own nature to be itself,” to turn back into itself when it has been wounded.”    p. 99

“The mechanists believed that life was mechanical, simply a series of processes that science could eventually understand and duplicate; the body was a machine that could be fixed. For the vitalists, the body was not a machine. They believed that life had something special about it that science could never duplicate. The vitalists were the romantics of medicine, and in the last decades of the nineteenth century they lost their battle with the mechanists. By the early twentieth century, any reference to vitalism or the healing power of nature was considered heretical. Yet vitalism did not disappear. Instead, it dived down into the subterranean rivers of Western medicine and reappeared in the many side streams of alternative medicine.

Whether there is such a thing as the healing power of nature is, perhaps, beside the point. What I do know for sure is that it is a useful way of looking at my patients’ bodies; it gives me a way of imagining that the body’s natural state is to be whole, perfect, and without blemish. And it is what differentiates the living body from a machine: because if nothing interferes, the body, unlike a machine, will heal itself.”  p. 100

If this sounds interesting to you, I encourage you to pick up the book at your library, at a bookstore, or online. To me, Dr. Sweet expressed a deep caring and concern for the individual, and how they heal. So similar to how homeopathy focuses on the individual – their needs, their suffering, and their healing.

I am always happy to talk to someone on how homeopathy can be of help for their health concerns. You can contact me here, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com
