Symptoms Are A Sign Of The Person’s Sensitivity

We don’t feel well. We have a symptom, a discomfort, a pain, that bothers us. We want it to go away, to be relieved, to not have it anymore.

Symptoms, discomfort, pain are all signs and messages that something is not right. Yes, these signs bother us, but they are not isolated, they are not just to themselves. They are a reflection, a manifestation of something deeper in our bodies, in our beings, showing up in this symptom.

Our bodies speak to us. They tell us about ourselves. And often, it is so LOUD in its discomfort, pain, itching, discharging, fever, that we need to do something about it. The homeopath listens to this sign, and to the whole of the person. They want to know how this particular discomfort, pain, symptom, fits in/relates to the whole person.

A Woman Feeling Vulnerable

Recently, a woman I know had a discomfort in her navel area. Years ago, she had had a laparoscopy and scar tissue developed in her navel from this procedure. She never had any problem with this area until several years ago, and now she was having a recurrence again. The area was painful, inflamed, and swollen which made it very difficult to sit. She was using hot compresses to help relieve and heal the area, wanting the area to start draining.

She was going to an event soon, and was feeling stressed about it. There was an inner conflict. She had been figuring out what would be the best way for her to go to this event. And then her navel became inflamed. She was feeling fearful. How can she travel? And she was fearful that this area could get worse. She decided it was time to see her homeopath.

She described the area of her navel as being very soft and vulnerable. Nothing was          pomegranate-open-196800_960_720 surrounding the area to protect it; there was nothing hard to cover the vulnerability. It was completely open and vulnerable to whatever came along. And it being so soft, open, and vulnerable, it could be easily hurt and injured. This is how she described the area and how she felt about going to the event. She knew that no one would actually injure this area or hurt her physically. But she felt very vulnerable, with the feeling that she might be “attacked” (her word), a verbal attack, and it would hurt her, injure her.

The navel area was analogous to how she felt about herself in the world. She felt that she was so soft and vulnerable, and needed to protect herself from being hurt, being injured. She needed to be hard; the hardness would protect her, it would surround her. The injuries could be physical, but more so, she felt the injuries could be from when she had interactions with people. That she she could be hurt by what they said. This was her sensitivity. (There is more to her case than what I have written here.)

A Healing

arnica-468434_960_720In homeopathy, the homeopath hears/observes/witnesses the person’s sensitivity. The sensitivity is expressed through how they talk about what bothers them; how they talk about their symptoms. And the person experiences this sensitivity on all levels – physically, emotionally, mentally.

As the person heals, the sensitivity becomes quieter and quieter. With this woman, as she heals, she will not feel as vulnerable, open and soft. She will not feel as though she needs something hard surrounding, enclosing, and protecting her from getting hurt and injured. She can be more of herself, and be part of the world more fully.

Symptoms are an expression of the sensitivity. They are a guide. Homeopathy uses them to learn more about the sensitivity. It is the sensitivity that quiets and heals, and with that, the symptoms, the navel with this woman, heals too.

What are your symptoms? How are they expressive of your sensitivity?

I would be happy to talk with you. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

After Pregnancy – A Change In A Woman’s Life

On the stats page of my blog, I saw that someone had googled “never well since pregnancy homeopathic remedy”. I am not sure exactly what their interest was, but I am going to take it as the person is not better since being pregnant, and wanting to know how homeopathy can help.

Changes

It is a happy time when a baby is born. There are also a lot of changes in a woman’s life at this time. Now, the mother has someone to take care of, who is totally brand new to the world, to itself, and to its mother-and-small-baby-1290405_960_720mother, father and its siblings. Everyone is learning about each other. We often say, the baby doesn’t come with a how-to manual. There are new roles, new responsibilities, new expectations, new schedules, new personalities, new family dynamics, just newness.

The mother wants to do the best job she can, even more than the best. With this new change in her life, she may be experiencing:

  • deprivation of sleep and sleep difficulties
  • breastfeeding issues
  • eating issues – not getting enough nutrients, not eating enough/eating too much
  • change in dynamics of the family
  • changes in her relationship with her significant other
  • image of herself / how she looks at herself, self reflection
  • how she looks physically – body is different, weight gain
  • going back to work/staying home
  • being super mom
  • healing from the birth or a c-section
  • miscarriage, stillbirth
  • anxiety, postpartum depression – An article on postpartum depression
  • exasperation of an ongoing health issue
  • baby having a difficult time or experiencing a health issue
  • health issues of a family member
  • feelings of being overwhelmed
  • advice from others
  • the baby was adopted

Getting Help

To ask for help is always a sign of strength, whether it is asking our family, friends, and/or professionals. By taking care of herself, the mother is also taking care of her new baby and her family. I know that at this time, the mother really isn’t thinking so much of taking care of herself, may not even have the time to think about it because she is so busy with the needs of others. Any time is a good time to ask for help, if it is needed. (If the mother, or you who is a mother and is reading this, are having thoughts of hurting herself and/or the baby, please do contact someone for help.)

After the pregnancy, it is a good time to come for homeopathic care. The homeopath will listen and observe the how and the what of what is bothering the mother – physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually – and then give the homeopathic remedy that is similar to this. (The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like.) The similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the healing process of the mother. It is safe for the mother to use homeopathy while breastfeeding, and is therefore safe for the baby. And, homeopathy can be used in conjunction with other healing modalities, including western medicine.

I want to add – homeopathy can be helpful and healing to a mother whether the pregnancy is new, or one that was years ago. In both cases, the mother has noticed that she has not been well since that particular pregnancy, even ones that were years ago.

I would be happy to talk with that person who is “never well since pregnancy homeopathic remedy”, or any woman that is not doing well since being pregnant. Either contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

The Use Of Homeopathy Is World Wide

Homeopathy is used all over the world. And it has been used since the early 1800’s when the German physician Dr. Samuel Hahneman developed it.

Hearing The Use Of Homeopathy In The Media

Recently, a friend sent me the link to an article about Prince Charles using homeopathy for the health care of animals instead of using antibiotics. (Click here to read the article.) I messaged her back, to tell her that the British Royal Family has been using homeopathy for years, and in fact they have a homeopathic physician that they see regularly.

Homeopathy has come up in literature and in the media. Often, it is just the word – homeopathy or homeopathic – and not really saying much about homeopathy as its own form of medicine. And other times, homeopathy is specifically mentioned in having helped and healed someone.

The National Center for Homeopathy wrote a post about the 1994 movie of LITTLE WOMEN. The post mentioned a scene in which Jo was looking through a Materia Medica, a reference book that has the descriptions of many homeopathic remedies. She was looking to find the homeopathic remedy that best fit the fever that one of her sisters’ was experiencing. The homeopathic remedy Belladonna was chosen. I have included the post here for you to read fully. By the way, the National Center for Homeopathy is a very good resource.

And recently I was watching an episode of the BBC program CALL THE MIDWIVES on Public Television. During a scene, one of the characters mentioned the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana. She was suggesting the use of Arnica montana for a person who may have experienced a fall, a bruising, or a trauma. (More about the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana.) I was excited to hear homeopathy mentioned.

Homeopathy Used World Wide

Homeopathy is used all over the world – the USA, Europe, South America, England, India, Russia, Japan, Eastern Europe, and other countries. It has been used for over 200 years. It heals deeply for first aid, acute conditions and for chronic conditions.

I invite you to contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com if you would like to know how homeopathy can be of help to you. If you are not local to the San Diego area, I work with patients by using Skype. I would be happy to talk to you.

See The Individual, Not The Label Of ADD/ADHD

We are all individuals. ADD/ADHD is a name, a label, to a long list of symptoms, behaviors and responses. When a child, and/or an adult, is not fitting in to the environment of school, of work, of life even, then very often medication is recommended by the person’s physician, and/or by the school.

Some Children I Have Seen In My Practice

Over the years, I have seen many children who have had the label of ADD/ADHD put on       sad smiley facethem. There may have been a commonality in that they were not doing their work at school, having difficulty focusing and attending, and were easily distracted. Some of these children were proscribed medication – some took it and some did not. I believe that all of the parents of these children were open and wanting other ways of helping their child than using medication.

As I met with the child and their parents, I heard and observed more than that the child was distracted. I believe that each child was suffering in their own way. Below is a short description of some of the children I have seen in my practice.

  • One girl was constantly moving around my office, crawling on the floor, hiding behind the chairs, and going under the desk. As she was moving around and changing her position in the room, she was talking to me.
  • One boy sat still in his chair. At times, while he sat in the chair, he would move his leg. He said if someone did something to him, he automatically (and he used this word automatically) started figuring out how to take revenge on this person. Sweet revenge, he said, and smiled somewhat. He would plan what he would do to this person. He experienced very frightening dreams of dark images, which he said came right up to his face. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, he said that the automatic feeling of needing to take revenge on someone was gone; he didn’t feel it anymore.
  • One boy had the urge to just run away from where he was. He felt very poorly about himself. At school, it was difficult to focus on what needed to be done in terms of his schoolwork. He was very concerned on how he said things, because it might be hurtful to someone.
  • When I first met this boy at the  door, he wanted to hide behind his mom. He also didn’t want to be videotaped. He felt embarrassed. During the school day, he was not focusing on his schoolwork. Once home, his mother needed to help him with his homework,  going over the material he had learned during the day. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, both his mother and his teacher noticed that he was more focused on his work. And his mother said that he seemed calmer.
  • Another boy had angry outbursts and tantrums at home, at school, and in public areas.

There is more to each of these children than what I have written here. You can see how different each of these children are. Each was given a different homeopathic remedy; a homeopathic remedy that fit them.

Healing With Homeopathy

children playing by beachWith the healing with homeopathy, the child becomes more of who they are. The child is not changed. They become who they are fully, being curious and creative children. With the healing  process, the child no longer experiences the  inner interferences that has made it difficult for them  to interact in their environment, the world around them, and with their family and friends.

Although, I have written mostly about children in this post, all of this applies to teenagers and adults as well, who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD or are taking medication. We are all individuals, and our treatment needs to fit us, not a label.

I would be happy to talk to you further about yourself or a loved one who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Homeopathic Healing Before/During/After Pregnancy

In the community that I live in, I have been seeing more young families. Couples who have had their first child within the last two years, and now some of them are having their second child. It is fun to see these babies and families.

I am also seeing more women patients in my homeopathic practice who are pregnant and who have young children. Homeopathy is very helpful before, during, and after pregnancy. These days people are looking for safe, natural, non-toxic, and holistic healing forms of medicine for themselves, and for their families. Homeopathy fits this so well.

Having Homeopathic Treatment Before/During/After Pregnancy

When a pregnant mother has homeopathic treatment, she is helping herself as well as helping and strengthening the health of her unborn baby. And when a nursing mother is using homeopathy, the baby is also benefiting from this care. In a way, it is treating two people for the “price” of one. When the mother is healing and well, the baby will be well and healthy. Homeopathy is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

These are some of the health concerns that may bring a woman to homeopathy before, during, and after her pregnancy:

  • wanting to get pregnant/fertility issues
  • morning sickness
  • extreme fatigue
  • sleeping issues
  • chronic colds, coughs, flus
  • increased blood sugars
  • increase in blood pressure
  • skin eruptions – acne, rashes, eczema, psoriasis
  • urinary tract infections
  • emotional issues – fears, anxiousness, depression, grief, sadness
  • exasperation of an ongoing health issue  – allergies, asthma, headaches, migraines
  • postpartum depression
  • labor issues
  • recovery from vaginal births and caesarean sections
  • breastfeeding issues
  • health of the baby
  • an ongoing health concern that the mother experiences and may be receiving other treatment for. (Homeopathy works well along with allopathic/western medicine.)

It is important to receive prenatal care from a health practitioner – ob/gyn, midwife, nurse practitioner, osteopath, and/or others. Homeopathy can be used along with this care.

Two Women  

I had started to see one woman as a patient before she became pregnant, and have continued to see her throughout her pregnancy. The homeopathic care has helped with her morning sickness, extreme fatigue, heart flutterings, colds, and with what brought her originally in for homeopathy. She also sees an ob/gyn, a chiropractor and other health practitioners.

I have seen another woman off and on – before, during her pregnancy and after the baby was born. Homeopathy helped her with the original reason she came in for. It also helped her when she experienced morning sickness and wanted to increase her breast milk supply.

This includes fathers as well as mothers. I invite you to contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

The Movie VAXXED: From Cover-Up To Catastrophe

I saw the documentary VAXXED: From Cover-Up To Catastrophe this weekend. It is an important film to see.

We hear about vaccines and we hear about autism. We hear of families saying that their young child, after receiving the MMR vaccine, regressed in their developmental abilities, such as in walking, talking and language, and in their social interactions with their family members and others. And we hear in the media citing scientific findings that there is no connection between the MMR vaccine and autism.

I invite you to learn more about this topic by viewing the film VAXXED. I am providing you the link to their website, where you can find the locations and the showing times of the film. It may be playing in your neighborhood. Click here:  http://vaxxedthemovie.com/

Homeopathy can be very helpful when someone contracts a childhood disease, and also if someone has had an adverse reaction to a vaccine. I wrote a post in February 2015 that talks about measles and homeopathy. It is titled Measles: Homeopathy Helps.

If I can be of any help in regards to yours or your child’s health, please contact me on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.
