An emotional event is a trauma. I have written about physical traumas, and how homeopathy can be helpful after an accident, injury, surgery, fall, dental work. Homeopathy is also helpful after emotional traumas.
An emotional trauma could be a loss, an abuse, a bullying, a fear, a regret, a feeling of shame, a feeling of guilt, a feeling of not carrying out what they believe is their responsibility, a feeling that they need to be perfect, to name a few. A person may develop some physical symptoms after experiencing an emotional upset or scare. Sometimes these emotional upsets are ongoing, and sometimes it is a one time occurrence.
Some of the physical symptoms can be stomachaches, headaches, nausea, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, menstrual changes, skin eruptions, obsessive behaviors, phobias, fears, anxiety, depression, nightmares, sore throats, breathing difficulties, earaches, colds, flus, autoimmune disorders, and more.
One night, when my youngest son was about a year old, there was a loud clap of thunder. It sounded as if it was right outside our window. He started to cry. I was holding him and comforting him. He was crying and was scared from this loud noise. A week later, he developed a cold and a fever. I remembered back to the fright that he had experienced from the thunder. I gave him a homeopathic remedy which helped with his cold, the fever and the fright. The loud thunder was so frightening to him. After being so afraid, he become sick with a cold and a fever. This was the emotional event.
A patient lost a very close family member. She was able to function, to work, and to live her life to a point. She expressed that a times she no longer wanted to live. She was in a lot of pain. She told her story of what had happened, filled with so many emotions. Physically, she was experiencing stomach pains, wanting to eat a lot, having headaches, and feeling paralyzed. She felt hopeless. A homeopathic remedy was given to address the emotions and the physical symptoms she was experiencing.
I often ask my patients when I meet with them, did anything happen right before you became sick or started experiencing these symptoms? I ask this question not just when someone has an acute illness like a cold or fever, but also when someone as chronic health issues that they have been experiencing for awhile. Sometimes I don’t need to ask the question, people just tell me what happened to them.
The patient and I together are witnessing the pieces that make up the whole of them, the totality of them at this time. Totalities can change. The emotional state is a piece, a part of the totality. The homeopathic remedy that is similar to this totality is given to assist the person in their healing.
