Health is having movement. When we are healthy we don’t get stuck in one place, whether it is a physical symptom, an emotional state, persistent thoughts, certain behaviors or the same reactions. We may experience some of these, sometimes, but we don’t get stuck and stay in them. We are able to move out of these stuck places.
I like to give the image of a pole. Each end is the extreme. Perhaps health is being in the middle of the pole. I think really health is moving back and forth between the two ends, through the middle, not getting stuck anywhere on the pole.
Health Is Movement
As my patients talk about how they are feeling better, I often hear them talk about this movement of health. It is interesting how each person words it. Here are two patients that I have seen over the years.
Why Would People Say Things Like That?
One patient, often talked about feeling they she is attacked or insulted with things that are going on in her life. Why would people say things like that, she would say. She wanted to speak up, sometimes, even wanting to stomp her foot, saying hey, don’t talk to me like that. Instead, she just felt upset and hurt. Physically, she often felt very weak and anxious, with palpitations, and would need to lay down and rest. She also would have digestive issues; diarrhea would wipe her out.
When she came in for a follow up appointment after several months using a homeopathic remedy, she related an incidence in which she felt she had been treated very poorly. She said, that in the past with a situation like this, she might have just backed off, not saying anything, but feeling inside, why did they say and do this to me? With this situation, she felt angry that she was treated so poorly, and wanted to speak up about it. And that is what she did.
She was not going to either of the extremes. One being so angry, venting, feeling attacked and hurt that she felt sick. And, the other extreme of wanting to attack, to stomp, and to hurt the other person. What she did was to speak up for herself. The two extremes merged, in a way. She felt them both, and found a way of handling the situation that was positive and constructive. This is health, movement of health.
She was also feeling less anxious and the weak episodes were occurring less often.
I Am Feeling Myself Again
Another woman would often talk about being heavy, enclosed, not able to move, needing to be at home, and needing/wanting to be very much in touch with a spiritual life. She also talked about some physical complaints she experienced, such as headaches, fatigue, difficulty focusing and anxiety. The heaviness and the spirituality are the extremes of the pole, her pole.
As she was healing and feeling better, she talked about these two extremes at the same time. And she was experiencing them at the same time. Before, she had talked about them separately, and wasn’t experiencing the spirituality that she cherished. Now, she said, I am feeling like myself again. I feel grounded in my body, and I am also feeling the spiritual connection again. I had lost that connection. I am feeling it again and I feel inspired. What she expressed was health -movement of health.
She was calmer, and had more direction in her life. And her headaches were much better.
Healing With Homeopathy
Most people come to homeopathy for a physical complaint. As they are talking about what bothers them, I start to hear their “pole”, their sensitivity, their extremes, how they experience their life. With a healing, the physical complaint is better, and the person is also feeling better in themselves. They are moving. They are not stuck in their physical complaint, an emotion, a behavior, a thought, nor a reaction. This is health. I find it exciting to see my patients experience this.
