Healing The Soil That Nourishes You

I hear so often that someone is experiencing a certain health concern. At that time, it is a flare up. The person may experience flare ups fairly often. They may feel alright between the flare ups, but the flare ups continue to occur.

Three People

Within the last few weeks, I have heard about, and spoken to several people who have been experiencing flare ups of their health concern. They are:

  • A woman who has shingles. This is not her first time having shingles. This time it has lasted more than the usual 7 weeks. She is in a lot of discomfort and pain.
  • A one year old boy who has ongoing earaches. His doctor may be considering putting tubes in his ears. His mother tells me that the boy is fussy all the time, just not a happy baby. He has a sensitive nature, she says, and sensitive to foods that he eats, and to the foods that she eats. He is being breastfed, which is very good thing. When I look at him, I see red around his eyes, and he just doesn’t smile very much.
  • A man who experiences ongoing digestive issues, whether having diarrhea very often, or just not feeling well after eating certain foods. He may have been diagnosed with, or given the label of, colitis or irritable bowel syndrome.

I am sure these three people are receiving health care, especially when they are having a flare up and are not feeling well. To me as a homeopath, when someone is experiencing flare ups often, it means that the root cause of what is bothering the person has not been healed.

Nourishing Soil

I think of soil. When we garden, we want good, nourishing, life giving and sustaining soil in soilwhich our vegetables, flowers, trees, shrubs, berries, fruits, and anything else we plant can grow. Why wouldn’t we want that kind of soil for ourselves?

The soil of these three people is not well, not nourishing, not life giving to them. We can give medicines to help relieve and alleviate their symptoms, but most of the time, these medicines are not healing the person; the medicines may be easing the symptoms, for a time period, but not healing.

Homeopathy To Heal

When I meet with a patient, I observe them, listening to their language, and how they express themselves. With a child, I ask the mother and father to tell and to actually show me how the child responds and behaves to what is happening to them. What is the expression of the child? How do they move? What sounds do they make? For any age of the patient, it is always finding out about the individual person.

I would also want to know:

  • What would they say is bothering them the most?
  • How do they experience what bothers them?
  • What was happening before they started to have this health concern – shingles, ear infection, or colitis.
  • What happens right before the flare ups?
  • How do they experience the shingles, ear infection or colitis – what makes it better or worse?
  • For the child, what was the mother’s pregnancy like? How was the birth like?
  • Temperament?
  • Fears?
  • Other issues and sensitivities?

What Is Your Soil Like?

What is the soil like in your garden? Do you, or a loved one, experience an ongoing health issue with flare ups, such as ear infections, digestive issues, shingles, herpes, headaches, eczema or other skin eruptions, menstrual issues, chronic pain, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, or any other health concern?

Let’s talk and see how homeopathy would be a good fit for you. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Listening To Yourself

Listening, observing, finding out how the person experiences what bothers them is what I do as a homeopath. I think I am a good listener, to others, but maybe not so good at listening to myself, hearing myself.

Are We Listening To Ourselves?

For me, sometimes, I am easily swayed or influenced by what other people say to me, or are doing. I need time afterwards to sift through, and process the information and energy of others. As a society, we are bombarded by all sorts of information, almost instantaneously. And from that we often think we need to be doing this or that, feeling this or that, comparing ourselves to others, and ultimately not being in tune with ourselves. We are not listening to our own needs and wants, and who we are as an individual person.

Listening is not just with our ears. It is how we feel, inside. Our gut feeling. Our bodies can tell us a lot: our physical reactions and our emotional responses. These reactions and responses are often autonomic; we go there immediately. Physically, we may get sick (really telling ourselves slow down and listen): our head hurts, our stomach grumbles, a rash breaks out, we breath shallowly, we come down with a cold. Emotionally, we may feel angry, fearful, shameful, irritated, annoyed, impatient, bored, or hurt.

I sometimes think we may need to call ourselves on the phone, so we will actually listen to ourselves. “Hey, Pam, I wanted to tell you this….”

Listening To Ourselves

Listening:

  • this doesn’t feel right to do, or feels right to do – a relationship, a job, an opportunity, an event. This does feel right.
  • don’t know what to do further in this creative work, will wait. Now I know what to do!
  • this person is doing this activity or has this belief, should I do this or believe this too? Shall I go along with this person or not?
  • following a dream, a passion, a trip that you have always wanted to do.
  • should I? Shouldn’t I? (Shoulds are usually something to avoid.)
  • my body is not feeling right.
  • time to rest, even if others are continuing.
  • am I reacting?
  • what am I feeling?
  • the group is doing this, it doesn’t feel right to me.
  • even if this person is an expert, I will get another expert’s opinion.
  • I am going to be quiet for awhile, so I can hear my voice, listening to what I am saying.
  • am I speaking my voice with other people?
  • am I speaking and hearing my own voice?
  • what does my voice sound like?
  • what is my voice saying?

To listen we need to be quiet, taking the time to be with ourselves. Going to a nurturing physical space, and a nurturing space within us. Honoring and respecting what we hear and what we feel. Being with it.

Listening is a muscle that we develop the more we use it. It is a practice. It is healing to listen to ourselves, and to be listened to by others, professionals and/or friends.

Are you listening to yourself?
