Preventive Care – Taking Care Of Oneself Now

Recently, I was talking to a woman about how she would like to live her life as she gets older. She said that she wants to live a healthy and full life, well into her 80’s and 90’s. She wants to be active, alert, healthy, and self sufficient. Her thinking is that now at this time of the her life, by taking good care of herself, she will be this person in her later years. It is very positive. She was asking me if I see people for preventive care in my homeopathic practice.

Preventative Care

It is making preparations. It is taking care of the concentric circles“soil” from which everything comes from in us. It is taking as good a care of ourselves now, so later on, we are in as good of health as we can be. It is preventive care:

  • eating well
  • exercising
  • getting good sleep
  • surrounding ourselves with like minded, positive, and supportive people
  • being our authentic self
  • doing activities that we love
  • being mindful of our thoughts and the words we use (of and about ourselves)
  • seeing regularly a health practitioner such as a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, a massage therapist, a western physician, an herbalist, a therapist, a hypnotherapist, an osteopath, an energy worker, and a homeopath

You often hear of people having monthly massages, chiropractic adjustments, or acupuncture treatments. A patient of mine said to me, I had a chiropractic adjustment the other day which helped with my headache. These adjustments have helped along with doing homeopathy.

Homeopathy And Preventive Care

To be honest, patients do not come to see me for preventive care very often. Usually, there is a specific reason that is bothering the person that has brought them in for homeopathy, whether it is a physical complaint, an emotional issue, a certain ongoing behavior, difficulty sleeping, and more.

Homeopathy is, and would be very helpful for preventive care. Homeopathy addresses the whole person. It is healing the “soil”, that makes up the whole person. I find that the person wants to be healthy, wants to be well, and has a wonderful motivation to be so. They want care that is non-invasive, natural, truly healing, and has no side effects. They don’t want to go the route of taking medications that are not really helping, not healing, have side effects, and possibly needed to use indefinitely.

If a person were to come in to see me, and say it was for preventive care, I would say to them good, and tell me more:

  • why are you here?
  • what is your concern?
  • is there something that is bothering you?
  • how would you like things to be?

and then, listen.

Knowing Health

Knowing and experiencing health.

In some way this is a continuation from my last post BEING YOU.

As we heal, we are feeling better. Our symptoms are less or are gone. We are sleeping and eating better. We are handling the situations of life easier and constructively. Things still do happen in our lives, and we respond to them. We may feel anger, fear, sadness, depression, anxiety, and joy. We may be fatigued, be in pain, and experience our physical symptoms. But we don’t get stuck in them. We are able to feel it, be with it, and then move out of it. We are feeling good in ourselves.

Feeling Healthy

With this experience of feeling good and healthy, we start to see the difference between feeling well and not feeling well. If we have not been able to “right”ourselves, and the feeling of being unwell continues, it is usually time for another dose of the homeopathic remedy. This will keep the healing moving forward.

balance-15712__180I often find that patients who have been doing well with homeopathic care start to know when it is time for another dose of the homeopathic remedy. How they express this awareness is very unique to them, just as their experience of what bothers them is unique to them.

Here is what some people say:

  • I am feeling as though I need to pull back inside. Being out is difficult. And I am so tired. I have been more out in the world, meeting and being with people, saying who I am, which is good, but now I think I need another dose of the remedy.
  • I have been able to use the computer well without feeling dizzy or tired. And I have been calm with the interactions with my family. I am speaking up for myself in a positive and constructive way. Other people have commented to me on how good I look. But I am staring to feel that using the computer is difficult and I have been feeling dizzy. I think it is time for another dose of the remedy.
  • I haven’t had the headaches. And I feel like myself. I have energy to do things, where before I was so tired. When I start to have headaches or am feeling so tired, I know it is time for another dose.
  • I haven’t been sleeping well. May I take another dose of the remedy? (This patient calls once a year or every six months, usually when it is exam time at the end of a school semester.)
  • I have been eating, and I have an appetite, but now I am beginning to feel that I don’t want to eat. I think it is time for another dose of the homeopathic remedy.

Another Dose Of The Homeopathic Remedy

When the person needs another dose of the homeopathic remedy, it isn’t in a set time period, such as once a week or once a month. It is when it is needed. Healing is a process. We want to keep the healing process moving forward. This is what homeopathy does. Part of healing is knowing health; knowing what health is for each of us.

I would be very happy to talk to you about your health. I invite you to contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com

Being You

One day, when I was sitting in my consultation room, I heard a sound outside the patio door. I looked outside, and there in the mulberry tree was a little bird. It is a bird I had never seen before. It was maybe 7 inches long. It’s back was a black and white pattern, and it’s head was bright red. It was pecking at the tree. It walked from one place to another, pecking. I watched the bird for awhile. I had had the tree cut back recently, which I do every year, so the tree was very bare and open. That is why I could see the bird so clearly.

ladder back woodpeckerI immediately looked on the internet to see what kind of bird it was. I first thought it was a Red-Bellied Woodpecker, and then realized it was a Ladder Back Woodpecker, which is native to the southwest. This made more sense. And the next day, the bird or its friend, came back, pecking on my tree.

I was thinking as I was watching the bird, that it was doing what it knows how to do. It was being itself – looking for food, and perhaps it found some food, and then moving on to find more. It was being who it is.

What We Want

That is really what we all want –  we want to be who we truly are – to love, to be loved, to do work that we enjoy, to enjoy our lives, to enjoy our relationships with friends and family. And to be healthy so we can do and be these things. To be who we are.

Someone may have a health issue that makes it difficult for them to take part in life. He can be tired all the time. She needs to know where the bathrooms are located when she goes out, because she has chronic diarrhea. He needs to watch very strictly what he eats. She doesn’t have an appetite and feels nausea all the time. He is not better from an accident that occurred awhile ago. He has pains and discomfort in his hands. She has ongoing flare ups of breathing difficulties. She is anxious and fearful for herself and her loved ones. He is constantly scratching his arms. These are some of what may bother people to the extent that it affects their life. They can’t truly be who they are.

Healing – Being Who You Are – Being You

A healing with homeopathy is of the whole person. The complaint that brought the person in for homeopathic care is better, AND, the person is feeling better in themselves. For one of my patients, her complaint was better. She wasn’t experiencing heart flutterings as much, or at all, AND, she was feeling more energetic. She was doing more activities during the day and having plenty of energy to do so. She said she was feeling like herself again. I could see this in her face.

It is not that the person is changed when having homeopathic care; it is that he can be more of who he is. He is no longer being bogged down and hindered with a physical, emotional or mental health issue, which has been limiting how he lives his live and how he is out in the world. As he is healing, he becomes more of himself. Just as the bird was pecking on my tree, being who he is, the person is being who he is.

When Antibiotics Don’t Do the Job, Homeopathy Heals

Antibiotics can be very helpful and are very much needed at times. Sometimes though, antibiotics are not helpful or healing for the person. It may be that after using them, the person is not doing better and/or there is a lingering state of ill health.

I have written about antibiotics before in other posts. Recently there were some friends and patients who had some experiences in their health care in which they had used antibiotics. I want to share this with you.

A Friend/Some Patients

A good friend had not being feeling well for awhile. She had a lingering cough, which was  aggravated when she spoke. She had used western medication to help, specifically antibiotics. They had not helped her. When this all started, she did not contact her homeopath. She waited several months later to do so, since she was very involved with family members and their health care. Once she saw her homeopath, she started to do better.

A patient experienced a sensation of fullness in her ear. She said her ear felt very plugged rocksup. This happened after having a cold. She went to her doctor to have the ear looked at. Her doctor said the ear was inflamed and had fluid inside. Antibiotics were proscribed. My patient was going to be flying soon, and was concerned about the ear, so she started the antibiotics. After one day, she had a severe adverse reaction to the antibiotics, and discontinued using them. We took a closer look at how she experienced the plugged ear, giving a homeopathic remedy that helped her. She took her trip and was fine.

A young boy who experienced congestion and discomfort in his ear, had had course after course of antibiotics for an ear infection. (I have written about this boy before.) He would be better for four weeks after a course of antibiotics, and then the same symptoms would return. This happened 4 – 5 times. With homeopathic care, he did much better. There was no return of the symptoms, and he didn’t need to take another course of antibiotics. He was doing very well.

A woman experienced an abscess in scar tissue that was the result of a laparoscopy performed years ago. She had never had any difficulties with the scar tissue before. When the abscess first started, she didn’t seek homeopathic care. As it got worse, becoming inflamed, painful, swollen, and red, she went to the dermatologist, actually to have the abscess drained, and was proscribed antibiotics. The abscess cleared up. About 14 months later, when she was having homeopathic care, not for the abscess, but for her (the totality), the abscess returned. She cared for the area, using hot compresses and taking good care of herself. The abscess resolved and she was much better. Her use of antibiotics may have been suppressive. Using homeopathy helped heal both the abscess and the whole of her.

And A Case Of Dr. Ronald Whitmont’s

In this video, Dr. Ronald Whitmont, a MD and a homeopath, talks about homeopathy and gives a case of a boy who had Lyme’s disease. This boy was helped with homeopathy. Before he had started homeopathic treatment, the boy had had many courses of antibiotics. After each course, the boy was worse.

 

I invite you to contact me if you have a situation in which antibiotics have not helped:

  • The area or symptoms have not resolved at all.
  • You needed to take many courses of antibiotics and are still not better.
  • You have felt worse after taking them.
