In my homeopathic practice, I often work with families, seeing several people in the family: the children and one or both of the parents, or a grandparent. I really enjoy working with families, and getting to know them. Recently, a friend said to me that working with families may be my niche. I do see individuals too,
Healing – The Family
Usually it is one of the children who starts, and as they are doing better, a sibling, a parent, or another family member starts to come in for homeopathic care. By working with the different members of the family, I see the interactions, the similarities, the differences, and history of the family. Just as each of us are a whole, and the symptoms we experience make up our whole, the family is the whole, and each member of the family is part of this whole.
When a family member, who was not doing well and in some ways was the center of attention for the whole family, starts to do better in their health, other family members can now pay attention to themselves. It is as if the other family members were holding back, focusing so much on the one family member that needed so much, and now the other family members could focus on themselves, their needs, and their health.
Health Concerns Family Members Experience
These are some of the health concerns that members of a family have come to homeopathy for:
- pains in the abdomen before menses
- chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia
- difficulty with vision
- tantrums, acting out
- sleep difficulties
- earaches, congestion, fevers, coughs
- broken bones, fractures
- skin eruptions and skin feeling very sensitive
- breathing difficulties – asthma
- depression and anxiety
- digestive issues
- reaction to a vaccine
- menstrual issues – menopause
- sore throats
- feeling very chilled
Usually, it is a chronic condition that brings the first family member into homeopathy. Then another family member comes in for a chronic, an acute or first aid concern. becomes part of their health care resources, along with western medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, therapy and other modalities.
A family is any group of people that live together, or not, that love, respect, honor, nurture, and accept each other. A family doesn’t have to be a mom and a dad and children. It can be two moms, two dads, one mom and children, one mom and dogs or cats, a grandparent and aunt and children, and also people who are not related by blood. A family is a group of people who have a closeness and love for each other.
