I Can’t Sleep

Sleep is very important to our health. It is a time of healing. We need to shut down, and allow our body, mind, spirit, and soul to rest and to rejuvenate.

I Can’t Sleep

We hear of many people having sleeping difficulties. Many different aids are used to help with sleep, and some are very helpful – positive thinking, hypnotherapy, a hot bath, a quiet/dark/cool room, sex, a feeling of intimacy, herbal treatments, vitamin supplements, sleeping cartoontalking to someone, and doing physical work or exercise during the day. Some people may take over the counter medications and/or prescription medications.

In my homeopathic practice, people often come for a particular reason, a particular health concern. As they are talking about what bothers them, they sometimes mention that they don’t sleep well. This is a piece of the puzzle, of the whole. Some of what they mention:

  • difficulty falling asleep
  • falling asleep but then waking at a certain time and not able to go back to sleep
  • waking too early in the morning
  • not able to quiet their minds
  • restlessness
  • having bad dreams
  • waking often
  • overstimulated and overexcited
  • experiencing pain
  • sensitivity to the environment – noise, light, room temperature, clothing
  • internal temperature fluctuation – hot flashes

Five People

These five people came for homeopathic care, part of what bothered them was difficulty sleeping.

  • One woman often has difficulty sleeping. She experiences this during stressful times and in various ways. One way is not being able to fall asleep at the start of the night. She feels tension and heaviness in her body. It is as if, she says, I am not allowing myself to relax and sleep. This feeling gets worse as the night goes on. Other times, she falls asleep easily but wakes and is not able to fall back to sleep for awhile. She says, her mind goes and goes, filledĀ  with thoughts of what happened during the day. Sometimes she feels very angry.
  • A boy has difficulty falling asleep. He may not get to sleep until 12 – 1 pm at night. Once he is asleep, he sleeps through the night, and it is difficult to wake him in the morning. He feels quite tired during the day. He is concerned about how others perceive him. Did he give the right answer in class? What will others think of him if he does give the wrong answer?
  • A teenager is a very light sleeper. He needs to have the room quiet and peaceful, with no disturbances. Snoring bothers him a lot. He prefers to sleep at home, where he knows it will be quiet and he won’t be disturbed. Being home and with his family is very important to him. It is difficult for him when he goes on trips, and is away from home.
  • A woman wakes often during the night. It is as if, she says, I am just taking naps during the night. She also is starting to experience night sweats, and her menstrual cycle is changing.
  • A young woman cannot fall asleep. This happens especially around exam time at the end of a school semester, or when there is something stressful going on in her life. She says too, that she thought she could nap the next day, but is unable to. Her mind keeps going; she is consistently analyzing her feelings and thoughts. Which path should I take? What should I do?

You can see that each person was different. It is always finding out about the person and how they experience what bothers them. Each of these five people needed a different homeopathic remedy; one that fit them. As they healed, what brought the person in for homeopathic care was better, and their sleeping improved. Everything is all connected.


Getting a good night’s sleep is important to our health and to our well being. Having a bad night’s sleep occasionally happens. When we start having consistently bad nights, then we want help. As I wrote above, there are a lot of aids people use to help with sleeping. I invite you to see how homeopathy can be of help to you.

I would be happy to talk with you about your health concerns and how homeopathy can be of help. You can contact me here on my blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Homeopathy: Putting Together, Piece By Piece, The Jigsaw Puzzle That is You

I was at a meeting the other day, and the presenter was talking about sole business owners and how they need to develop and to nurture themselves and their business. The presenter specifically was talking about having a plan, a picture, a vision of what you are working towards for your business. She gave the analogy of a jigsaw puzzle, saying that when you work on a jigsaw puzzle you need the picture of what it will be when finished, otherwise, you won’t know what it will turn out to be. This is the same with your business, she said, you need a picture/plan/vision to know where you are going and if you are going in the right direction.

I thought this was a good analogy to what she was talking about. And I thought, this was not true with homeopathy.

The Pieces Make Up The Whole

In homeopathy, the homeopath doesn’t have a picture to look at as they are meeting with the patient. They have no idea what the whole picture will be like or turn out to be beforehand. The homeopath views, observes, witnesses, listens to jigsaw-puzzle-712465_960_720the pieces as the person is speaking, and puts these pieces together making the picture, the whole picture, of this person.

The person may say they have ADHD like symptoms, depression, eczema, digestive issues, or headaches. This may sound like the picture, but for the homeopath it doesn’t tell them anything about this particular person. It is a piece of the puzzle, a piece of the whole.

When we go to see a doctor, we are used to having each piece treated, separately. Have a headache, take this medication. Have digestive issues take this medication. That is how western medicine works. This is not so with homeopathy.

Healing With Homeopathy

The homeopath is finding out about all of the pieces of the person, and putting them together to make a full picture of THIS person who is in front of them. The picture is of THIS person, not of the ADHD symptoms, the digestive issues, the depression, the eczema or the headaches. It is the totality of the person. A homeopathic remedy is then given that is similar to the wholeness of the person, stimulating the person’s own healing abilities.

One Patient

A woman came for homeopathic treatment because she had lingering effects from an injury. She talked about this injury, as well as other parts of her life (pieces). As she was healing after taking the homeopathic remedy, the lingering effects from the injury subsided; she was sleeping better; her interactions with her family members improved; and she was experiencing less discomfort and symptoms as she transitioned into menopause. All of these are pieces of her, making up the totality of her. The healing is of the whole person, and as the person heals, the pieces heal too.

Feeling Desperate Because You Don’t Feel Well

Several weeks ago, a man called and asked if I have helped people with mercury toxicity. I asked him, how are you experiencing this? Why do you think yo have mercury toxicity? He listed some symptoms, of which included ringing in his ears, extreme weakness, and decrease in muscle tone.

He said that he has had this condition for the past 2 years, and thinks it started when he was exposed to some hazardous substance when he was cleaning out his garage. He had been checked out by a neurologist, had a MRI, and nothing was found to be the cause of the symptoms he was experiencing.

He continued to not feel well, and he said it was getting worse. It was affecting his work and his home life. Some doctors thought he helpmight be depressed, he said, and treatment for depression was suggested. He sounded very desperate. He wanted help, and he wanted help right away.

Past Blog Posts

In some of my past blogs, I have mentioned the kinds of health concerns people have called me about. (You can read that post here.) Very often, it is similar to what this man was saying, not the specific health concern he was talking about, but that the person was not feeling well, had had tests done, and the doctors had not found anything wrong, or maybe something was wrong, but the treatment was not helping.

The person was experiencing symptoms and a state of health that was debilitating, worrisome, uncomfortable, painful, affecting the quality of their life, and affecting how they functioned. The person wanted help, and sometimes they were desperate.

The definition of desperate in THE MERRIAM-WEBSTER DICTIONARY is: being beyond or almost beyond hope; causing despair.

Homeopathy Can Help

Very often, this is when people come to homeopathy, when they are feeling desperate.

In a homeopathic consultation, the homeopath is hearing, understanding, witnessing what the person is experiencing, going to the root of where the symptoms are manifesting from. This is done by understanding the whole of the person, not only the symptoms that brought the person in for treatment. The symptoms are part of the whole. Homeopathy is truly a holism form of medicine.

A homeopathic remedy is given to the person that is similar to their wholeness, stimulating their own healing process. The healing is at the root cause, at the source from which the symptoms manifest from, and the person is feeling better on all levels.


I don’t know if I will hear from this man again who called me. I want to say to him, and to others like him, call and make an appointment and let’s start helping you move towards health.
