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.
It is making preparations. It is taking care of the “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
- 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.
I invite you to have a conversation with me on how homeopathy can be helpful for you. You are someone who is invested in being as healthy as you can be. Please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.
