Recently, I had an annual exam with a new doctor. I wanted to get acquainted with a doctor, so if in the future I needed care in allopathic medicine I had a relationship already established. This is also a good idea to do with a homeopath.
A Personal Experience
During the exam, I was describing to the doctor a sensation that I sometimes experience on the left side of my body, in the chest and breast area, and under the rib cage. It is a sensation that I have had over the years. It is is not a constant sensation. It is not painful, but has a heaviness feeling to it, as if I can feel that area.
The main sensation is that the area (rib cage, chest) feels held in, as if there is not enough room for it to expand. I don’t have any difficulty breathing, nor do I feel the sensation when I breath. The feeling is a heaviness, tightness, held in, and wanting to expand and to be let out.
I said this last part to the doctor. She answered, “I don’t know what you are saying.” I replied, “That kind of description is what I hear from my patients. As a homeopath, it gives me an understanding of what the person is experiencing.”
A Difference Between Allopathic and Homeopathic Medicine
I thought to myself, this is one of the differences between homeopathic and allopathic medicine. It really showed me how different an appointment is with a doctor compared to one with a homeopath. A doctor gathers their information through the results of tests – blood pressure, pulse, vitals, blood panels, examinations etc. And a homeopath will take all of these test results into consideration, but also wants to know more about what this person is experiencing, such as the sensation I described above.
It was very interesting for me to have the physical exam, and to personally see for myself how different the experience of working with a doctor is, as compared to working with a homeopath.
Homeopathy To Heal
There is definitely a place for allopathic (western medicine) to help people in their health. And there is definitely a place for homeopathic medicine. I have found that many people who come to homeopathy for care do so after using other healing modalities, including allopathic medicine.
If you feel that homeopathy could be helpful for your or a loved one’s health condition, I invite you to contact me. I can be reached on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.
