To You, Who Use Holistic Forms Of Healing

I believe that most of you who read this blog are interested in your health, and want to take care of yourself and your family, in a holistic way.  Many of you have used chiropractic care, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, Chinese herbal medicine, herbal medicine, reiki, nutrition, massage, essential oils, supplements, diet, color therapy, sound therapy, energy therapy, line spiralcounseling, or other healing modalities. And have found one or several of these modalities to be helpful.

Some of you women may have seen a midwife, used a doula, a lactation specialist, or a hypnotherapist during your pregnancy, the birth, and after. I believe you found that whatever healing modalities you used were very helpful and healing for you.

Specifically Homeopathy

And some of you have had homeopathic care. You may have seen a homeopath, and had your case taken. You may have self-treated or treated a family member for first aid and/or an acute condition using homeopathic remedies. You may have just used the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana when there was an injury, a fall, or a trauma to your body knowing, or not knowing, that it was a homeopathic remedy. You found homeopathy to be helpful and healing in these particular situations.

(Please note, that I write about homeopathy separately from the other holistic modalities I listed. Why? Because homeopathy is its own form of holistic medicine, based on Like Cures Like. Homeopathy is so often confused, or thought of, as being a different healing modality than it is.)

A Picture of You

I have painted this picture of you.

I see you as being holistically health conscious and aware, wanting to be healthy, and using natural types of therapies. You are open, possibly searching and questioning, and thinking a little bit outside of the box. You take responsibility for your health, and are interested in knowing more about health and how to take care of yourself and your family.

I write this blog about homeopathy for people like you, because I know you want the best for yourself, and for your family in regards to health.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Recurring Health Concerns

This past week, I had a call from a father about his 3 month old baby daughter. He has had experience with homeopathy before having taken his older child to see a homeopath. He told me that his little baby daughter was not feeling well. She had had a cold several weeks ago, was better, but now she was not feeling well again. She wasn’t running a fever, and he didn’t think that she was in pain. He said she was irritable.

I was thinking that maybe her irritability was an expression of some sort of pain or discomfort. Obviously, she wasn’t feeling well. Babies and small children don’t tell us through words how they are feeling, but through sounds, behaviors, actions, movements, changes in moods and temperaments. This baby was expressing something through her irritability.

Unfortunately, the father cancelled the appointment he had made with me for his daughter. He told me that they had taken her to see a doctor, who said that it was a cold. The father decided to not pursue homeopathic care, at this time. I said, if the cold continues, or if it returns, it would be a good idea to bring your daughter in for homeopathic care, since she already has been experiencing a recurrence of this, and we don’t want that to continue.

People I Speak To

gumby sickWhen I talk to people either in person or on the phone, they tell me about their particular health concern. I hear all sorts of things, such as the person is experiencing pains and discomforts in their feet. They have an extremely itchy rash or eczema eruption. Breathing is difficult for them. The get very anxious in some situations. There are feelings of sadness or depression. They don’t sleep well. During their menstrual cycle certain symptoms come up. They are extremely fearful and/or have nightmares. They have ongoing headaches, stomachaches, or digestive issues. I hear all sorts of things. The person is not feeling well, and they want to feel better.

Recurring Health Concern

Their health concern is often something that has been going on for a awhile, or it had gone away and now it is recurring again. They have periodic flare ups of it. They are not feeling better from the type of treatment they are using for their health concern, and they want to feel better.

In a previous post, I wrote about a young boy who had recurring congestion, fevers and ear infections. The boy had taken several courses of antibiotics. Each time, he would be better for a month or so, and then the whole situation would happen again. The homeopathic remedy that fit him, that was similar to what he was experiencing, helped him to heal this recurrence of the ear infections, the fevers, and the congestion. He has done well.

Often when there is a recurring health concern, the treatment being used helps to ease and to palliate when there is an outbreak or flare up. This treatment helps the person feel better for the time being, but doesn’t heal the health concern. The person needs to continue taking the medication to feel better, often accepting that these recurrences will happen again, and again.

Does this sound like you?

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy heals at the root cause of what is bothering the person. It is a deep healing. As the person heals, the recurrences and flare ups become less and less, till they no longer happen at all. It is a healing. With the young boy I wrote of, I had thought there might be a recurrence of the ear infection as he was healing, but there wasn’t. The cycle was broken. With an adult, the stopping of the cycle may take longer to happen than with this young boy, since the adult has had this health concern for a longer period of time. But the cycle does end.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help a recurring health concern that you have. Either contact me here, through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a 15 minute complimentary Get Acquainted Call. I would be happy to talk with you about your health concern and/or a loved one.

Is The Holiday Season A Difficult Time For You? Homeopathy Helps

It is just about the start of the holiday season. Stores are starting to be more crowded. The temperatures are cooler. We are making plans – to travel, to see friends and family, to host and attend parties, for celebrations, and to shop. This time of year can be both wonderful, and can be difficult for people. It brings up a lot in us, about ourselves, our families, our financial tree reflectionsituation, our childhoods, our futures, our children, our hopes, our dreams, and our health. A lot. In many, many ways, it is a busier time of the year.

(Two years ago, I wrote a post talking about the holiday blues. I wanted to write about the holiday season again. You can read that earlier post by clicking here.)

The Holiday Season

During the holiday season, we can be more susceptible to becoming ill, whether we become ill or there is a flare up of an ongoing chronic health concern that we experience from time to time. We may be more sensitive to our surroundings at this time of the year, and therefore experience more triggers. Our schedule is different, sleeping too little, staying up late at night and getting up early in the morning. The foods we eat are different. We eat and drink too much. We travel and are in different time zones. We are around more people, the general public and our families and friends. We are alone, and may feel isolated. We have expectations of the holidays, of ourselves, and where we are in our lives. All of these could be triggers.

Getting Sick During The Holiday Season

Someone may say, you know, every year around the Christmas holidays I get sick, like with a really bad flu. Or someone else may say, this time of the year is when I get so many asthma attacks, I wonder why. And for others, their digestion may be off. Some may experience more headaches. Others are feeling more anxiety or depression. And others may have flare ups of their skin eruptions. These are just a few of what some people may experience.

The important thing is to take care of yourself. Listen to what your body, and your soul needs, or doesn’t need. Listen to your gut. Kind of checking in with yourself. Trusting and honoring yourself.

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy can be very helpful and healing during this time of the year. I have heard some homeopaths talk about their practice being quite busy during the holiday months, November thru January. Issues, emotions, situations, responses, reactions, and physical complaints and concerns may come more to the surface than at other times of the year. Because they are more accessible and right there on the surface, it may be a good time to come for homeopathic care.

I invite you to give yourself, and/or a loved one, the gift of health. I would be happy to talk with you, either through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

I will be continuing to write a weekly blog, but I wanted to get this one out at the start of this holiday season. Whatever holidays you celebrate, I wish you a wonderful time filled with happiness, fun, safety, joy, and health.

What Is A Homeopathic Medicine?

Although, many people know the word homeopathy, since they hear it being used in the media, and also see it printed on products, they don’t really know what homeopathy is. For many, homeopathy has become synonymous for natural, and used that way in the media when blocks spelling homeopathydescribing healing modalities and products. When someone hears me talk about what I do, when I am talking about homeopathy, they may say to me, or think to themselves, what she is talking about is essential oils, herbal medicine, and/or supplements. But that is not what homeopathy is.

Homeopathy is its own system of medicine. It was developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s. Homeopathy means “similar suffering”. Through listening, observing, and understanding what bothers the person and how they experience it, a homeopathic medicine is given that is similar. This similar homeopathic medicine stimulates the person’s own healing. To read more about homeopathy and homeopathic remedies. (I encourage you to read this. And I use the words homeopathic remedy and homeopathic medicines interchangeably.)

What Is A Homeopathic Medicine?

Because homeopathy is often confused with other healing modalities. I wanted to tell you what a homeopathic medicine is. There are over 4000 homeopathic-remedies-bottles-different-35796044homeopathic medicines. They are made from plants, minerals, animals, and other natural sources. Think how many plants there are in the world. Many of these plants have been made into homeopathic medicines. Think of the periodic table. All of these elements have been made into a homeopathic medicine. And think of animals – mammals, snakes, spiders, insects, mollusks, sea animals, and birds. Many of these have been made into homeopathic medicines.

Only a small part of the substance that the homeopathic medicine is being made from is used to make the homeopathic medicine. And with animals, the animal is not killed. A small part of the milk, wing, blood, or venom is used to make the homeopathic medicine.

The homeopathic medicines that I use in my practice are purchased from a homeopathic pharmacy, such as Hahnemann in Northern California, and Helios in England. These pharmacies make the homeopathic medicines on their premises, using the method that Dr. Samuel Hahnemann developed. There are other pharmacies in Europe, India, the US, and other parts of the world.

Your Use Of Homeopathic Medicines

Many of you have used the homeopathic medicine Arnica montana for bruising and shock after an injury, a trauma, dental work, or a fall. And possibly you have used other homeopathic medicines. Some of you have seen a homeopath for treatment. You have found homeopathy to be healing and helpful.

Healing With Homeopathy

The healing with homeopathic care is deep. Homeopathy is helpful for many of the health concerns people experience today. I invite you to see how homeopathy can be a deep healing for you, and for your loved ones. I would be happy to talk with you. Either contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I have a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

The Process of Healing

I enjoy working with my patients. They see that homeopathy is an investment in their health, and that healing is a process.

I may not hear from a patient for 6 months, or longer, and then hear from them. The person has been doing well, but something has come up, a flu for example, or they may not be doing as well as they had been. In these situations, it may be time for another dose of the homeopathic remedy, or it may be that the remedy is not helping as much as it had, and another homeopathic remedy is needed. I will say, come in for an appointment and let’s see what is bothering you.

Two Of My Patients

I have seen one young woman for many years. She calls me about every 6 months, often saying that she has been sleeping well, but now she is not. I say, it is time to take another dose of the homeopathic remedy, which she does. About a year ago, she took the homeopathic remedy after we spoke on the phone, and she didn’t feel much better. I said come in for an appointment. A different homeopathic remedy was needed at this time. She is doing well with this new homeopathic remedy, and continues to contact me about every 6 months or so.

Another patient, a woman, was not doing well after being sick from a possible stomach flu. I suggested she come in for an appointment. What she was telling and showing me of what bothered her, and the experience of it, was very different than how she had expressed in the past of what bothered her. Her language was different. The sensations were different. She was expressing another state, another picture, and needed a different homeopathic remedy.

Healing

These examples show that healing is a process. We move forward. We are better. We are healing. And then perhaps things healingdon’t move as well, and it is time to “take the case again” – to hear, to observe, to witness, what it is that bothers the person. This is what happened to me and I wrote about in A Personal Healing With Homeopathy, and this is what was happening with these two women. It is part of the process of healing, and is very common.

We are not static. We move through our lives. Things change, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. With these changes, there may be the possibility that a different homeopathic remedy is needed, which is more similar (Like cures Like) to what the person is experiencing, and helps them to continue moving forward in their healing process. If you are seeing a homeopath, it is good to do follow up appointments, not only when you are not feeling well, but also to see how the process of healing is moving forward.

When we see that healing is a process, we don’t get stuck on the idea that everything needs to be better now, or that health is just not about having any symptoms. We see that being well, being healthy, living our lives fully and openly is ongoing. It is a process.

Healing With Homeopathy

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help you and/or your loved ones in the process of healing. You can contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.
