Taking Everything Into Consideration – Seeing The Totality Of The Person

Many people come in for homeopathic care for a chronic health issue, that they may have been experiencing for awhile. When I meet with a patient I am finding out how they experience what is bothering them.

Sometimes, this may take several appointments. Each appointment gives more information towards getting the totality picture of the person. To have as complete a picture of the person, helps to come to the homeopathic remedy that is most similar to the patient.

Taking Everything Into Consideration

All of what I have listed here, and maybe more, makes up the totality of the person.

  • What is bothering them? Why have they come for homeopathic care?
  • How do they experience what bothers them? Pain, discomfort, side of body, what makes it worse or better, other symptoms with it. The sensation of what bothers them. Why is this a problem?
  • When did it start? What was going in their life when it started? A trauma, a loss of job, loss of a relationship or loved one, a physical move, diet change, medications taken, a particular medical condition?
  • An unusual symptom or how someone experiences a symptoms uniquely to them. It is called strange, rare and peculiar (SRP)
  • Emotional  state
  • Mental state                                                         spiral-2368124__340
  • Dreams
  • Fears
  • Childhood – events, illnesses
  • Trauma – illnesses, loss of loved one, loss of home, accident, loss of job, accident, natural disasters
  • Interests
  • Medical history
  • Family medical history –  susceptibility to health concerns are passed down from one generation to another. Susceptibility means a tendency to experience/develop certain symptoms or illnesses.
  • Medications taken over lifetime, especially if they were ongoing. The person may have noticed changes/symptoms when starting the medications, or later on. Medications like: antibiotics, vaccines, for fertility treatments, birth control pills.
  • Use of a substance for a long period of time, which has been toxic, such as chewing tobacco, smoking, drinking alcohol, and use of cell phone, especially with children. Symptoms or ill health developed after this. I have read cases about symptoms and ill health developing with overuse of what I have listed here.

Seeing The Totality Of The Person

It is seeing the totality. Finding out as much as possible about the patient. Seeing what may have brought them to this state of ill health. With this understanding and knowledge of their totality, a homeopathic remedy is given. As the healing process moves forward, this first homeopathic remedy may be repeated, a higher potency/strength of the remedy may be given, or another homeopathic remedy will be given. It is a process. Each homeopathic remedy helps us to move forward to the next, and is chosen based on the similarity to what the person is experiencing at that time. The Law of Similars or Like Cures Like is the main principle of homeopathy. The given homeopathic remedies stimulate the person’s own healing abilities, bringing the person back to a more healthful state of being.

Homeopathy To Heal

These are some of the recent health issues people have called me about, and have come in for homeopathic care. Many of these people have also reached out to their physician.

  • skin eruptions – warts, eczema, rashes
  • swollen lymph nodes
  • vertigo
  • migraines/headaches
  • fears/phobias
  • anxiety/depression
  • digestive issues
  • menstrual issues
  • extreme sensitivity to sound and noise
  • reactions to vaccines
  • traumas – physical, emotional, mental
  • eye discomfort and infection
  • pressure in the head
  • not feeling right

Why Do I Practice Homeopathy? (2)

I wrote this post about 5 years ago. I want to share it with you again. I added a few things.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I feel that people are looking for a natural, non-invasive, deep healing modality. They may be tired of not feeling well, and tired of taking medications that are not really healing. And they want to be better.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It is to offer a healing modality that truly is healing. Healing at the root cause from which umbrella-1521492_1280the symptoms,  the discomfort, and the pains come from.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It is a system of medicine that addresses the individual. Seeing each person as the unique person they are.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

As I see people healing and doing better, they are more at ease to be fully themselves, and are no longer being limited by the symptoms that are experiencing. They are no longer stuck.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It is helpful for many of the health issues that people are experiencing today.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I see people as they heal, through the help of homeopathy, being able to use other healing modalities in a much more constructive and positive way.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I feel there is such a need for homeopathy. There are more toxic substances that we are being exposed to, in the environment, in foods, in cleaning and cosmetic products, and in the medicines that are being used.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I think it is important for people to have choices in their health care, to know that they have options in how to take care of themselves and their family. This can be empowering.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

I like to give hope. To know that we can change, heal and feel better.

Why do I practice homeopathy?

It makes sense to me. It resonates with me. I continue to learn. It is a WOW to me.

Listening – To Yourself

Part of this blog is from a post I wrote several years ago. I wanted to share it again. I have been hearing a lot about listening to ourselves, especially during the times we are going through.

Listening, observing, witnessing, finding out how the person experiences what bothers them is what I do as a homeopath. I think I am a good listener, to others, but maybe not so good at listening to myself, hearing myself.

Are We Listening To Ourselves?

For me, sometimes, I am easily swayed or influenced by what other people say to me, or are doing. I need time afterwards to sift through, and process the information and energy of others. As a society, we are bombarded by all sorts of information, almost instantaneously and continually. From that we often think we need to be doing this or that, feeling this or that, comparing ourselves to others, and ultimately not being in tune with ourselves. We may not be listening to our own needs and wants, and who we are as an individual person.

Listening is not just with our ears. It is what we sense about ourselves and around us, and how we feel, inside. Our gut feeling.

Our bodies can tell us a lot of how we are reacting to a situation. Our thoughts tell us too. These reactions, responses and thoughts are often autonomic. We go to them immediately. Physically, we may get sick, which is a way of telling ourselves to slow down, to pause, to rest and to listen. Our head hurts. Our stomach grumbles and hurts. Our digestion may be off. A rash breaks out. We breath shallowly, maybe panting. Our heart beats faster. Our hands get sweaty. come down with a cold. We are not sleeping well. Emotionally, we may feel angry, fearful, shamed, irritated, annoyed, impatient, bored, unsettled or hurt. Mentally, we may have persistent thoughts that could be negative, almost looping around and around and around.

woman on phone

I sometimes think we may need to call ourselves on the phone, so we will actually listen to ourselves.

“Hey, Pam, I want to tell you this….”

Listening To Ourselves

  • What am I feeling?
  • This doesn’t feel right to do or feels right to do – about a relationship, a job, an opportunity, an event.
  • Don’t know what to do further in this creative work, will wait. Now I know what to do! Took the time to listen.
  • This person is doing this activity or has this belief. Is this something I want to do or believe in? Shall I go along with this person or not?
  • Following a dream, a passion, a trip that you have always wanted to take.
  • Should I? Shouldn’t I? (Shoulds are usually something to avoid.)
  • My body is not feeling right. What is my body telling me?
  • Time to rest, even if others are continuing.
  • Am I reacting?
  • The group is doing this, it doesn’t feel right to me.
  • Even if this person is an expert, I will get another expert’s opinion.
  • I am going to be quiet for awhile, so I can hear my voice, listening to what I am saying.
  • Am I speaking my voice with other people?
  • Am I speaking and hearing my own voice?
  • What does my voice sound like?

Listening To Me

I do artwork. I have done artwork off and on for most of my life. When I talk about the process of doing art work, I say that I listen to the piece that I am working on, almost as if the piece is telling me what to do next, what color to use, what line to draw and more. When I think (I am pointing to my head) of what to do, it doesn’t work. When I let the art work tell me, it works. It is a feeling or sense to do this ________. Is this the art telling, or me telling me? Whatever it is, it is listening to that.

A Video With Oprah Winfrey And Iyanla Vanzant

Below is a video of a conversation between Oprah Winfrey and Iyanla Vanzant from the program SuperSoul Sunday. They talked about pausing, staying present, and using your own spiritual GPS, instead of doing what we always do. The video is about 1:36 minutes long. Enjoy.

Homeopathy To Heal

When I work with a patient, I am witnessing what is bothering them. I often say, that the patient and I are witnessing them together. Witnessing is listening. I am listening to the patient. And the patient is listening to themselves.

Homeopathy – A Need For and How It Works

I write often that there is a need for homeopathy. I am seeing this need more and more from people, not only with the people who call me asking if homeopathy can help them, but also from just reading about how health care is in the world.

People call me about many different health issues. Very often, they have experienced this health issue for a period of time, received different treatments and possibly medications for it, yet they are not better. They may feel frustrated, stuck and unheard. Their health issue may not fit a box of a diagnosis or a name. The person is not feeling well, has symptoms that bother them greatly, which can affect their daily life.

Acute and Chronic Health Issues

Sometimes homeopathy works very quickly. Actually, you want to see a fairly fast respond when using homeopathy for first aid issues (falls, sprains, insect bites, traumas, dental work) and acute health issueshomeopathy bottles (flu, colds, stomachaches). You want to see symptoms move and change towards healing. Several doses of a remedy may be used. As the person heals and the symptoms change, another homeopathic remedy will be needed.

With a chronic, long term health issue, more time is needed for the healing. Often, a series of homeopathic remedies are used, taking one remedy at a time, and then when needed another one is used. Homeopathic remedies are usually not taken daily. One or two doses are taken within 24 hours, and then we wait and observe how the person is responding. The remedy is stimulating the person’s own healing ability. Sometimes we see something in the first few days, sometimes in a week, and sometimes longer. The changes may be subtle at first.

Follow Up Appointments

Follow up appointments help us to see how the person has responded to the remedy. From these appointments we know how to proceed, whether to continue with that remedy or to change to another. We don’t want to just keep giving the homeopathic remedy especially if nothing much has happened.

Sometimes the first homeopathic remedy does not do very much. By meeting again, we start to get a deeper understanding of the person, and use a homeopathic remedy that fits and helps more. The first remedy was not in vain; it helped us move to the next one. Healing is a process. We are healing at the root cause of the health issue, not just palliating.

One of my patients has done very well after the third homeopathic remedy we given. It is still used when needed. The first two remedies for this patient brought us to this third one.

Patients that use homeopathy as part of their health care get in contact with me when something comes up regarding their health, whether it is first aid, an acute issue, or a chronic issue that they are experiencing. For these patients, we may use the homeopathic remedy that has helped before or another one is needed. We address what is happening to them at this time.

Homeopathy To Heal

Since we want a healing, and healing is a process, we want to give the process time to work. Three months, six months, more time. It does depend on how long someone has experienced what is bothering them in terms of the healing time. Appointments are not weekly. The follow up appointments are 4 – 6 weeks apart, based on what is needed and the individual.

If I can be of help to you or loved one who has a health issue, I would be happy to talk with you. I offer a complimentary 15+ minute Get Acquainted Call to see if this is something you would like to pursue. I see patients both local and outside the San Diego area, virtually and in person.

“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.

I see people of all ages for many different health issues. They often feel frustrated and stuck, wondering if they will ever feel any better, having used different healing treatments and still not feeling better.

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.

*******

I receive calls from people asking for help for many different health issues. They feel frustrated, stuck and tired of not feeling well. They are wanting to know how homeopathy can help them. 

I invite you to contact me either through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I offer a complimentary 15 + minute Get Acquainted Call to see if this is fit for you. I work with people virtually and in person in and out of the San Diego area.

Having “Difficulties”

 t   Part of this is a re – post.

Several years ago, I was attending a meeting in which I was introducing myself and saying a little bit about homeopathy. I was specifically talking about a patient of mine, a young boy. I prefaced what I was saying about him, with the statement that “it is not that children are difficult, but that children are having difficulties.” I might say that this is so with any age.  anxious cartoon

I think we say that the child is difficult because for the people around them, it may be hard to be with them. It is difficult. The child may be too noisy, too unsocial, too quiet, too loud, not fitting in, too shy, doing behaviors that are not really sociably accepting. The child may be experiencing something within themselves, in their body, that is extremely unpleasant, painful, and uncomfortable. The behaviors may be a way for the child to sooth themselves, and the discomfort they are feeling and experiencing. The child is having difficulties, and we label them difficult. 

Having difficulties applies to adults too.    

What May Be Bothering The Person And How It Shows Up

What may be bothering the person, a child or an adult: 

  • An inner struggle
  • Difficulty in vision, hearing, processing information, paying attention, focusing
  • Environmental factors – exposure to toxins, not enough food, reaction to foods, reaction to medications or vaccines, poor environment, abuse
  • A feeling, sensation or pain within them that is SO uncomfortable – physical, emotional, mental or spiritual
  • Relationships – abuse (I know I mentioned this twice), family discord, parental problems, family dynamics, siblings, friends
  • A physical ailment, an injury
  • A physical pain
  • An emotional lose or challenge
  • An unknown – which we may never know

How the bothering may show up in the person:

  • Anger, acting out, tantrums, biting, hitting
  • Fears, terrors, anxiousness
  • Sadness, withdrawal, depression
  • Difficulty in friendships and relationships
  • Bed wetting, frequent urination, UTI’s
  • Oppositional behavior
  • Frequent colds, sore throats, earaches, stomachaches, headaches, persistent or nervous coughs
  • Rashes or other skin eruptions
  • Allergies
  • Respiratory symptoms – asthma
  • Skin eruptions
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating and focusing
  • Sleeping problems, nightmares, sleep walking
  • Digestive issue – constipation, diarrhea, nausea, not want to eat, wanting to eat too much

The symptoms that the person is experiencing are signs that something is not right. We listen and witness them and use them to come to the homeopathic remedy that is needed at this time.  

A Boy With A Recurring Cough

Years ago, I saw a young boy for a recurring cough. The cough actually bothered the mother more than it bothered the boy.  When I was talking and listening to the boy, I understood that what bothered him the most was that his younger sister was the boss of him. He was older, taller, yet he felt that she was the boss of him. Unfortunately, his mother did not bring the boy back for a follow up appointment, but I found out through a friend of the family that the cough had subsided. My guess was that the boy was also feeling better about himself, and didn’t feel that his sister was the boss.

To his mom, the cough was difficult, difficult for her to hear. And she was concerned about her son’s health. For the boy, the relationship with his sister was difficult. Was the cough related to how he felt about himself when he was with his sister? Maybe. Both the cough and how he felt about himself were pieces of the totality, and led to the selection of homeopathic remedy that was used.  

Homeopathy To Heal

I receive calls from people who are having difficulties. Often, it has been something they have been experiencing for awhile. Their health issue has not resolved. They have used different healing treatments and are not better. At this point, they come to homeopathy. I always say it is a process of healing. We start where they are, and go forward, often needing different homeopathic remedies as the healing process progresses. 

If I can be of help to you or a loved one, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15 + minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is a fit for you. I work with people in person and virtually in and out of the San Diego, California area.

Working Together

At the start of meeting with a patient, I say: “We are doing a jigsaw puzzle together. You are giving me the pieces – what you are experiencing, what your symptoms are like, how the symptoms bother you, your past puzzle-colorful pieceshistory, your dreams, your fears, your emotions, and more.

We are putting these pieces together, making a whole picture, a totality of you. We do not have a finished picture of what it will look like to guide us as we are putting the pieces together. We don’t have a picture on the box cover.”

I love this analogy of the jigsaw puzzle. I love it because we, the patient and I, are doing this process together. We are witnessing what bothers them, together. It is a joint endeavor.

Jigsaw Puzzle

Sometimes, I don’t get all the pieces of the puzzle at one time. I may get some at the first appointment, and then more at subsequent appointments. It is a process, a process of putting together the puzzle. We start with one homeopathic remedy. Sometimes this first remedy is all that is needed. Often though, another homeopathic remedy or several will be needed, as a deeper and fuller picture emerges. I believe that each homeopathic remedy that is used, is helpful in its own right. It may open up or remove a layer, so we, the patient and I, can witness more of what is going with the person. All the homeopathic remedies are helping to move the person forward in a healing.

Homeopathy To Heal

People come to homeopathy for various health issues. Over the years, I have seen people for migraines, constipation, cysts on the thyroid gland, warts, hives, menstrual issues, digestive issues, reaction to a vaccine, coughs, breathing difficulties, coronavirus, never been well since being sick, earaches, eczema and more.  It is always looking at the individual person, putting the pieces of their puzzle together.

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.

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.

I work with people of all ages who have a persistent and 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 been 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.
