We experience symptoms, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. There could be a pain, a discomfort, a cough, more mucus, runny nose, tearing of the eyes, a headache, digestive issues, burping, loose bowels, constipation, vomiting, hormonal changes, menstrual issues, appetite changes, thirst changes, anxiety, depression, sadness, fears, insomnia, night terrors, itching, difficulty breathing, difficulty balancing, memory loss, a skin eruption and more.
A list of symptoms often make up a label, a name, or a diagnosis.
Symptoms tell us that something has changed and that we are responding to that change. We are feeling differently than we were before. A change could be from: an exposure to a virus; eating or drinking spoiled food and drink; to a toxin, whether in the air or a surface; a reaction to a medication; a wound or injury: a traumatic event, that can be physical or emotional, to name a few.
There is a change. We respond to it. There can be a reaction. Symptoms start to be experienced.
That we respond and react to a change is very healthy. We have a wonderful immune system, chi, vital force, that responds and helps us to heal, bringing us back to homeostasis state.
Symptoms Are Guides
In homeopathy, symptoms are seen as guides. Symptoms are telling us how the body is healing itself, as it is responding to something. The homeopath wants to know what the symptoms are like, when they started, what was going at that time, what other symptoms are also being experienced, the emotional state, dreams, fears, the medical history, and more. By knowing this, the homeopath gives a homeopathic remedy that is similar to what the person is experiencing. The given homeopathic remedy is similar to the symptoms, assisting the body in its healing. The word homeopathy means similar (homeo) suffering (pathy). The Law of Similar or Like Cures Like is the main principle of homeopathy.
Guest On A Podcast
I was a guest on the Vibrant Family Education Channel talking about homeopathy. I love to talk about homeopathy, letting people know they have choices in their health care. Vibrant Family Education (www.vibrantfamilyeducation.com) offers support and resources for families to help with their educational needs. I enjoyed my conversation with Kristina and Herb Heagh-Avritt very much. This is the link to the show. My conversation is episode number 25. www.bringingeducationhome.com
