Homeopathy To Heal

Everything Is Connected

Most of the time, a person comes for homeopathic care because of a physical issue that is bothering them. As I listen and witness what they are saying and showing me, the person will often talk about a situation, an event, and/or a relationship that is happening in their life at this present time or in the past. Their feelings about this situation are expressed, along with how it is affecting them. For me as a homeopath, this emotional component can be a big part of understanding the person’s case, their totality at this time, and helps lead to the homeopathic remedy that is helpful for them.

A Patient

I have seen this women for many years for various health issues. Many times with her, the emotions are a big part of her case, and have helped guide me to the homeopathic remedy that is needed at the time.

This time she came in to see me because she was experiencing sore gums. She had the area checked by her dentist. No cavity nor decay was seen, but the dentist did say that the area looked traumatized. My patient had no memory of injuring the area. She said the gums felt sore both when they were touched, and not touched. They didn’t hurt when she ate. She also started talking about her relationship with her daughter. Lately, it has been difficult. She felt hurt and left out of her daughter’s life. She thought that perhaps her daughter was not telling her the truth at times, lying to her. The gums bothered this woman. The interaction she was having with her daughter also bothered her, maybe even more.

All of this information made up her case, her totality at this time. I could have given something along the lines of first aid, but there seemed to be more involved in the case than an injury. Actually, there was an injury, an injury to her relationship with her daughter. After taking the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what she was experiencing, the soreness of the gums subsided. She slept better. And she spent a day with her daughter, helping her organize her apartment. She was feeling better.

Another Patient

A woman came to see me telling me her left arm was hurting her, actually to the point that she couldn’t put on her bra. At night she was unable to get into a comfortable position to sleep. She didn’t think she had hurt her arm nor sprained it in anyway. She told me that someone had suggested to her about getting a massage. At that time, she immediately, without even a pause to think, said I don’t want anyone touching my arm. She would touch it and massage it herself, she said, but she didn’t want anyone to touch it. As she was telling me all this, she remembered that she had several dreams lately in which she felt threatened and unsafe, as if she could be hurt physically. These were unusual dreams for her. I suggested a homeopathic remedy. The pain subsided. She was able to sleep, and to hook up her bra.

Everything Is Connected

Everything is connected in our bodies, in our being. Sometimes, when emotions cannot be expressed, they show up in the body as a symptom. Someone may say so directly and see the connection themselves. With others, it just comes out as they are talking. Some of the connections I have heard and witnessed:

  • When I am upset, I can’t eat, or I have diarrhea.
  • When I get so stressed and overwhelmed, I get this horrible migraine headache.
  • When I feel betrayed or let down, I get these stomach cramps.
  • When I have intercourse with my husband, I develop an urinary tract infection afterwards, or have pains in my uterus.
  • I feel so anxious and stressed when I am around this person (blank). I feel as though all my energy has been sucked out of me.
  • After I experienced that traumatic event, I developed bodily pains and I was tired all the time. I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • I feel so tired. I find that I am not being supported in my work situation.

Therapy and forms of counseling can be very helpful for someone who is going through an emotionally difficult time. It is always good to have someone to talk to, who is a witness and supportive of you. Homeopathy and therapy can work very well together.

For some people I work with, homeopathy has become part of their health care. If something comes up regarding their health, whether an acute or a chronic issue, they will come see their homeopath, along with seeing their doctor, chiropractor, acupuncturist or therapist. These two women above are like that.

I invite you to contact me if you or a loved one have a health issue that has not been resolved, an acute or chronic. You can contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15+ minute Get Acquainted Call. I see people both in person and virtually, in and out of the San Diego area.

*******

I work with people of all ages who have a persistent, ongoing health issue and are not feeling as good as they know they could. Despite doing different healing treatments, they feel their health issue has not be resolved and have no clue on how to do so. We work together to get to the root cause of their health issue, and heal there, using the holistic form of medicine homeopathy.

Giving Space

This past week I was reminded about how space is given in the appointment when I see a patient.  Space to talk, to show, to express what is bothering them. Nothing had changed in this particular appointment on how I meet with a patient. I was just reminded of it. I felt and feel a deep respect and wonderment on how homeopathy can give the kind of space that a person needs.

My job is to witness what is bothering the patient. I have learned over the years to meet the patient where they are. To be flexible. Where they are now is where we start in the healing process, giving the homeopathic remedy that is similar to them at this time.

How Some Patients Are

Some patients are very factual in their telling of what is bothering them, relating numbers of tests, or not elaborating on how they experience their symptoms. This may be what they are used to when going to a health practitioner. Many times it is a physical symptom or a specific name/label/diagnosis that has brought them in for homeopathic care.

In addition to telling me about their physical symptoms, some patients talk about their emotional state. hands - sculpted Often sharing a story, a situation, or a relationship that they are in now or were in the past, and how they feel about it. How it affects or affected them.

Some patients may not say so much about their physical symptoms. They talk more about the world they life in, their reality, feeling that something is not quite right about it. Often they will say, “This doesn’t make sense”, or “I don’t know what I am saying”, and continue to talk. This is what happened this past week with a patient. I have had people say “I sound crazy” or “This is crazy what I am saying”.

If the person is non verbal, such as a baby, they are expressing themselves in other ways than in words. Wherever the persons speaks from and however they speak.

I want to mention again how homeopathy can be helpful when someone has coronavirus; for someone who has had the virus and is continuing to not feel well; and someone who may have had a reaction to the vaccine.

See The Individual, Not The Label of ADD/ADHD, Nor Any Label

I have updated this post that I wrote about 6 years ago. I want to share it with you again.

We are all individuals. ADD/ADHD is a name, a label, to a long list of symptoms, behaviors and responses. When a child, and/or an adult, is not fitting in to the environment of school, of work, of life even, then very often medication is recommended by the person’s physician, and/or by the school.

Some Children I Have Seen In My Practice

Over the years, I have seen many children who have been given the label of ADD/ADHD. sad smiley faceThere may have been a commonality in that they were not doing their work at school, having difficulty focusing and attending, and were easily distracted. Some of these children were proscribed medication – some took it and some did not. I believe that all of the parents of these children were open and wanting other ways of helping their child than using medications.

As I met with the child and their parents, I heard and observed more than that the child was distracted. I believe that each child was suffering in their own way. Below is a short description of some of the children I have seen in my practice.

  • One girl was constantly moving around my office, crawling on the floor, hiding behind the chairs, and going under the desk. As she was moving around and changing her position in the room, she was talking to me.
  • One boy sat still in his chair. At times, while he sat in the chair, he would move his leg. He said if someone did something to him, he automatically (and he used this word automatically) started figuring out how to take revenge on this person. Sweet revenge, he said, and smiled somewhat. He would plan what he would do to this person. He experienced very frightening dreams of dark images, which he said came right up to his face. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, he said that the automatic feeling of needing to take revenge on someone was gone; he didn’t feel it anymore.
  • One boy had the urge to just run away from where he was. He felt very poorly about himself. At school, it was difficult to focus on what needed to be done in terms of his schoolwork. He was very concerned on how he said things, because it might be hurtful to someone.
  • When I first met this boy at the  door, he wanted to hide behind his mom. He also didn’t want to be videotaped. He felt embarrassed. During the school day, he was not focusing on his schoolwork. Once home, his mother needed to help him with his homework, going over the material he had learned during the day. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, both his mother and his teacher noticed that he was more focused on his work. His mother said that he seemed calmer.
  • Another boy had angry outbursts and tantrums at home, at school, and in public areas.
  • A boy who had a lot of fears at night.

There is more to each of these children than what I have written here. You can see how different each of these children are. Each child was given a homeopathic remedy that fit them, not the label of ADD/ADHD.

Healing With Homeopathy

children playing by beachWith the healing with homeopathy, the child becomes more of who they are. The child is not changed. They become who they are fully, being curious and creative children. With the healing  process, the child no longer experiences the inner interferences that has made it difficult for them to interact in their environment, the world around them, and with their family and friends.

Although, I have written mostly about children in this post, all of this applies to teenagers and adults as well, who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD or are taking medication. We are all individuals, and our treatment needs to fit us, not a label. The individuality of the person is what that has been given.
