“I Am Sensitive”

Patients often tell me that they are sensitive, sensitive to medications, supplements and vitamins. I take this in consideration when deciding on the potency of the homeopathic remedy, and how often the person will take it.

This is only one kind of sensitivity.

I think we are all sensitive.

We are sensitive to things outside of our bodies. And a particular part of our body or functioning of our body can be more sensitive. That is the part of the body where we experience symptoms when we are under stress. Someone may have headaches or migraines. Someone may have digestive issues; skin eruptions, such as hives; menstrual difficulties; breathing difficulties; sleep issues; feel very anxious or nervous, to name a few.ball-2995723_960_720

Sensitivities can also be to many different things in our environment, in our relationships, in our work life and more. We may think that having a sensitivity is only negative. Sensitivities can also be positive. A person feels better from being out in the sun, or outside in the fresh air. They are sensitive to the sun, in a positive way.

Sensitivities

Physical and environmental:

  • temperature and weather changes
  • moon phases
  • time of day
  • seasons
  • heat or cold
  • clothing
  • being covered or uncovered
  • particular foods and drink
  • medications, supplements
  • touch, pressure or lack of touch or pressure, textures
  • other environmental occurrences
  • sounds, light, smells, tastes, touch
  • air, drafts, wind
  • sun
  • pain

Emotional. With the list below, many people may not like what is happening or want to be around it, such as experiencing an angry person. We may have a response or reaction to the situation. Someone who has more of a sensitivity to it, such as with being around an angry person, will be affected more by it. In a way, the person is stuck in the angry.

  • angry situations, quarrels, arguments
  • teasing, joking, bullying
  • criticism, lack of appreciation, humiliating
  • sadness, grief
  • betrayal
  • rudeness
  • feeling left out, forsaken
  • pressure of deadlines
  • talking to other people – to individuals or to groups
  • preforming
  • responsibilities, sense of duty
  • jealousy

When we are feeling stressed, we are more triggered by our sensitivities and to what is happening around us. We may then start to experience physical, emotional, or mental symptoms. In a way, it is our body’s way of handling this stress. With homeopathic care, the response of the symptoms we experience may become less pronounced. We may still experience the stress, still be bothered by it, yet we are able to handle the situations better, without being as affected as much. Other tools, techniques and therapies can also be helpful.

Sensitivity To Loud Noises

Over this past year, I have seen several people who are very sensitive to noise and sounds. To the point that they wear ear plugs or muffs, and are not taking part in life’s every day activities. Each of the cases were different, and needed a different homeopathic remedy, that fit them, even though what brought them into homeopathy, the sensitivity to noise and sounds was the same.

One woman has done very well. We used two homeopathic remedies and then the third one helped greatly. She is still doing very well, having a dose of the homeopathic remedy when needed. Her experience with homeopathy shows that very often a series of homeopathic remedies are needed, helping the case move forward. It is a process of healing.

Seeing How The Person Sees It

Brene Brown – “In order to empathize with someone’s experience you must be willing to believe them as they see it and not how you imagine their experience to be. “

*******

This quote resonated with me. My intention when I meet with a patient is to see, hear, observe, witness, understand (not intellectually), and listen to how “they see it, (their experience)”.  “To believe them” is to see them. Maybe this is empathy. I don’t know. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy,sunflower-7303819_960_720 wrote in THE ORGANON, that when being with the patient the practitioner is “the unprejudiced observer”. 

As a homeopathic practitioner, I am seeing the patient’s world, their reality. I want to know how it is for them. This guides me to the selection of the homeopathic remedy that is needed.    

I often say: tell me more; what was that, (if they made a gesture); what does that feel like in your body; how does that feel or felt; why; what is the experience or sensation of that. I am wanting to know more. 

My job is to witness where the person is living. To see them. 

Expressing

People express themselves using words, gestures, movements of their body, sounds they make, dislikes and likes, interests, dreams, fear and more. 

I work with people who are verbal and non verbal, such as babies, children or adults. (Animals too.) These patients are telling me about themselves, not through words necessarily, but through their actions and their behaviors. It observe. It is part of their totality.

Such as: 

  • How a child moves around my consultation room. Going under my desk. Being behind a chair. Moving all over the room. Going into the closet and closing the door. Standing behind their mother when first entering the room.  
  • Movement of head or part of the body.
  • Needing support to hold up their head. 
  • Covering their eyes, ears or both, with hands or with clothes or muffs. 
  • Making a sound.
