When Antibiotics Don’t Do the Job, Homeopathy Heals

Antibiotics can be very helpful and are very much needed at times. Sometimes though, antibiotics are not helpful or healing for the person. It may be that after using them, the person is not doing better and/or there is a lingering state of ill health.

I have written about antibiotics before in other posts. Recently there were some friends and patients who had some experiences in their health care in which they had used antibiotics. I want to share this with you.

A Friend/Some Patients

A good friend had not being feeling well for awhile. She had a lingering cough, which was  aggravated when she spoke. She had used western medication to help, specifically antibiotics. They had not helped her. When this all started, she did not contact her homeopath. She waited several months later to do so, since she was very involved with family members and their health care. Once she saw her homeopath, she started to do better.

A patient experienced a sensation of fullness in her ear. She said her ear felt very plugged rocksup. This happened after having a cold. She went to her doctor to have the ear looked at. Her doctor said the ear was inflamed and had fluid inside. Antibiotics were proscribed. My patient was going to be flying soon, and was concerned about the ear, so she started the antibiotics. After one day, she had a severe adverse reaction to the antibiotics, and discontinued using them. We took a closer look at how she experienced the plugged ear, giving a homeopathic remedy that helped her. She took her trip and was fine.

A young boy who experienced congestion and discomfort in his ear, had had course after course of antibiotics for an ear infection. (I have written about this boy before.) He would be better for four weeks after a course of antibiotics, and then the same symptoms would return. This happened 4 – 5 times. With homeopathic care, he did much better. There was no return of the symptoms, and he didn’t need to take another course of antibiotics. He was doing very well.

A woman experienced an abscess in scar tissue that was the result of a laparoscopy performed years ago. She had never had any difficulties with the scar tissue before. When the abscess first started, she didn’t seek homeopathic care. As it got worse, becoming inflamed, painful, swollen, and red, she went to the dermatologist, actually to have the abscess drained, and was proscribed antibiotics. The abscess cleared up. About 14 months later, when she was having homeopathic care, not for the abscess, but for her (the totality), the abscess returned. She cared for the area, using hot compresses and taking good care of herself. The abscess resolved and she was much better. Her use of antibiotics may have been suppressive. Using homeopathy helped heal both the abscess and the whole of her.

And A Case Of Dr. Ronald Whitmont’s

In this video, Dr. Ronald Whitmont, a MD and a homeopath, talks about homeopathy and gives a case of a boy who had Lyme’s disease. This boy was helped with homeopathy. Before he had started homeopathic treatment, the boy had had many courses of antibiotics. After each course, the boy was worse.

 

I invite you to contact me if you have a situation in which antibiotics have not helped:

  • The area or symptoms have not resolved at all.
  • You needed to take many courses of antibiotics and are still not better.
  • You have felt worse after taking them.

Homeopathy can be of help to you. Contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Wanting To Feel Better – Healing With Homeopathy Instead Of Antibiotics

We become sick. We want to feel better, as soon as we can. We go to our doctors. They may give us a prescription for an antibiotic. We feel better that something is being done, although the situation may not have really called for antibiotics, or the antibiotics didn’t help.

In the February 1, 2016 issue of THE SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, Paul Sisson wrote an article on antibiotics titled Rules Urge Doctors To Rein In Antibiotics. The article talked blowing noseparticularly about the use of antibiotics for severe coughs, sore throats, nasal congestion, sinus pain and colds. Ear aches/ear infections could be added to the list. The main premise of the article was for these kinds of health conditions, antibiotics are not necessarily needed, although they are prescribed very often for them. An excerpt from the article is below. You can read the entire article here.

Please know that there is a time and a place for antibiotics in which they are very useful.

Healing With Homeopathy

We always want to feel better. And we want our health practitioner to lead us on that path. There are other means than antibiotics that can be used when someone is not feeling well.

The healing process and ability of our bodies works so wonderfully well. When we listen to our bodies, take the rest that we need, nourish our bodies with good food and water, exercise, and nurture ourselves by doing activities that we love, our bodies heal well. It is when we are not moving through a health concern – such as a severe cough, a sore throat, nasal congestion, ear aches and infections, colds and more – that we may need help. Homeopathy is very helpful and healing in these situations. These health issues may be a one time occurrence or a chronic situation, in which flare ups are experienced regularly.

Homeopathy works with the body’s innate ability to heal. The individual person is addressed. Seeing, listening, witnessing how the person experiences what bothers them –  how they experience their cough, their sore throat, their nasal congestion, their ear ache or their cold. It is learning about this person – the totality of this person.

Some People Who Have Benefited From Homeopathic Care

Patients who were helped with homeopathy:

  • A little boy who had recurring nasal congestion and possible ear infections. He had taken several rounds of antibiotics. The homeopathic remedy, which was similar to him, helped with the nasal congestion and the ear infections. He didn’t need to take another course of antibiotics. And the remedy has continued to help, when he has become ill or has not felt well. He hasn’t had another ear infection.
  • A boy who had a severe sore throat, took a homeopathic remedy soon after the sore throat had started to bother him. The sore throat subsided, and he was feeling much better within a couple of days.
  • A man who found it difficult to breath and had used antibiotics for the recurring nasal congestion, did very well with the homeopathic remedy that fit him. His nasal congestion cleared up and he was able to breath easier.
  • A woman who had not felt well for several weeks, was experiencing a sore throat. She said the pain was all the time, and her throat felt very raw. She thought of going to Urgent Care, where she probably would have been proscribed antibiotics, instead she used homeopathy, and she was feeling better.

*******

Does this sound like you?

  • not feeling well
  • experiencing an ongoing or recurring cough, nasal congestion, sinus pain, sore throat, ear infection or a cold
  • don’t want to use antibiotics or have used antibiotics and they have not helped

Then it is time to see how homeopathy can be of help to you. Either contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

 

Excerpt From the Article Rules Urge Doctors To Rein In Antibiotics

“The latest guidelines make specific recommendations for some of the most common reasons people see their doctors:

Severe coughs bring an estimated 100 million people into physician waiting rooms annually. Although 90 percent of those cases are bronchitis, which is airway inflammation caused by a virus, 70 percent of such patients nationwide receive antibiotic prescriptions, according to the CDC. The new guidelines call for antibiotics only if pneumonia, which is often caused by bacteria in the lungs, is suspected.

Sore throats are responsible for 12 million visits each year. Although the cause is usually viral, antibiotics are prescribed at “most visits,” according to the CDC. The streptococcus bacteria is the most likely cause of a sore throat, and the new guidelines call for a positive strep test before prescribing antibiotics.

Nasal and sinus congestion result in about 4.3 million visits annually. Most sinusitis cases start out with a viral infection, but obstructed sinuses can, over time, lead to a secondary bacterial infection in less than 2 percent of cases. There is no simple test to tell whether the infection is viral or bacterial, and the CDC recommends that doctors wait at least 10 days before prescribing antibiotics unless the patient has a fever higher than 102.2 degrees, particularly nasty nasal discharge, facial pain that lasts for more than three consecutive days or illness that improves and then worsens.

The common cold, which is always caused by a range of viruses, is responsible for 37 million visits per year. Even though experts agree that antibiotics should never be given for a cold, they are prescribed in about 30 percent of cases, according to the CDC.

The new guidelines put doctors in the position of requiring patients, who are already wheezing, sniffling and aching, to forgo a treatment they may be convinced will help them get better. While this might seem a difficult task for physicians to achieve, experts said much progress has already been made.”

A Personal Healing With Homeopathy

I am a homeopath. I am a patient too. I see a homeopath. I don’t self treat for homeopathic care. I may self treat for first aid, and there were several times I did for chronic conditions, but I don’t now. I cannot be objective, nor can I really hear and observe myself. I can’t wear two hats at the same time – the patient and the homeopath.

My Story

This last week, my homeopath gave me a new homeopathic remedy. This happens. The homeopath sees the case deeper, some things change, or there is a better understanding of the person’s complaints and suffering. A different homeopathic remedy is needed than to what was given before. This new homeopathic remedy was in the same family, the same kingdom, of the one I had just be taking. The former homeopathic remedy had helped, but did not heal as deeply as is possible with homeopathy.

With taking this new homeopathic remedy, an old condition or symptom that I had before, came back. I had suppressed this condition, this situation by using antibiotics when it had first occurred. With the process of healing from a homeopathic remedy, the vital force, the chi, the immune system, becomes stronger, and the symptoms or conditions that were suppressed by the use of medications, such as antibiotics and steroids (cream and oral form) may come back. These symptoms/conditions come back for a short time, and then they are gone. It is healing. In a previous blog, I had written about THE DIRECTION OF CURE. That is what this is. It is a good sign that the remedy is helping and healing, stimulating the person’s own healing process.

That is what was happening with me. The antibiotics that I had taken had been suppressive, and now there was a return of older symptoms/conditions, seashell-754014_640as I was healing. I knew that was what was happening to me, and it was a good thing. I contacted my homeopath and told him, and he agreed with me. In fact what he said was “this is a good thing”. I slept. I took care of the area that was affected. I took care of me. I wasn’t very hungry, but what I did eat was of plant type food, so to speak. Vegetarian. Nourishing food. Life giving food.

Yes, there is a place and a need for antibiotics. They can be extremely helpful, and life saving. And, they can be overused. When I had this situation originally, I could have treated it homeopathically. I didn’t. At first, I didn’t know what was going on with the discomfort and the pain that I was experiencing, and I waited. Then I went to the doctor. The doctor prescribed antibiotics. This happens.

Healing

With the healing of old, suppressed symptoms and conditions, the body, the chi, the vital force, the person, becomes stronger and healthier. This healing affects the whole person, on all levels – the physical, the emotional, the mental, and the spiritual. It is all good. Homeopathy creates a deep healing. It is a healing at the root from where the symptoms and conditions come.

Much of what western medicine does in its treatment can be suppressive. Yes, the person feels better because the symptoms are not as strong, the itch may be gone, the pain may be gone, but only for a short time until the medication is taken again. We may very often think that a healing has occurred if we no longer have the symptoms, or have less of them, but we need to take a medication often and regularly so there are no symptoms. This isn’t a healing. It is a palliating, and can also be suppressing too.

Healing With Homeopathy

For me, this experience shows how well homeopathy heals, and how well it addresses each of us, as the individual person we are. My health concern was heard, observed, and understood. The homeopathic remedy given to me, being similar to what I was experiencing (Like Cures Like) stimulated my own body to heal. To heal, not to palliate, not to ease the symptoms, and not to suppress. To heal.

I invite you to heal. Very simple. Contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I have a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

We Each Have Our Own Sensitivity

Sensitivity.

We all have our own sensitivity. Why does something bother one person, but the very same thing doesn’t bother another person?  I often give the example of a skin eruption on someone’s hand. For one person, it bothers them so much to the point that they will seek out any and all kinds of treatment to help. Another person, hardly notices it, or if they do, it doesn’t bother them. They live with it. One person is bothered by it, the other is not. One is sensitive about it, the other is not.

Different Sensitivities

Some sensitivities that people may experience are:                                                                                                                          dandalion

  • to noise, to crowds, to fabrics, to foods, to temperatures, to smells, to certain types of people, to violence, to blood, to over stimulation, to under stimulation, to pain, to pressure, to situations, to traveling, to dirt, to germs, and more.

Parts of the body or the functioning of parts of the body that may be more sensitive in someone are:

  • the stomach – digestive issues, the head – migraines, frequent colds, sore throats, respiratory issues, menstrual issues, hormonal issues – in both women and men, skin eruptions, anxiousness, depression/melancholy, fears and phobias, muscular aches and pains, sleep issues, nightmares, eating issues, and more.

Hearing The Sensitivity – A Case of A Boy

The sensitivity is what I hear when someone comes to see me for homeopathy. I hear what bothers the person. I hear how they experience their sensitivity. I hear how they live with the sensitivity, either compensating, making it go away, accepting it, or avoiding it. I hear how the sensitivity affects their life.

I want to tell you about a boy whose parents brought him in for homeopathic care. He was 20 months old at the time. The boy was experiencing nasal congestion, fevers, and possible ear infections, in which several courses of antibiotics had been given. The antibiotics had helped for four weeks, then the congestion, the fevers, the discomfort in the ear returned. He went through this cycle for several months.

As I spoke to the parents and observed the boy, I saw that he had a sensitivity to noise and sounds. His mother told me that when a sound was loud, or if he heard a far off sound, such as an airplane, actually hearing it before she did, he would run to her. She thought that the sounds were scary or frightening to him. He was not saying how he experienced the sounds through words, but showing through his behaviors, reactions, and responses to the sounds. There was a sensitivity to sound. I wondered if the sounds felt uncomfortable or painful to him in some way. Whatever it was, the sounds and noises were too much for him. I really didn’t know how the sounds specifically affected him, but they bothered him greatly, in some way.

boy with truck 2 cartoonThis sensitivity to sound was also expressed as he played. He would make the sounds of trucks, imitating the noises that trucks make as they move, back up, carry things, and push materials. To me, this also showed how sensitive he was to sound. He heard things well, and could reproduce the sounds that he heard.

He has done well with the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what he was experiencing. He hasn’t needed to have any more antibiotics. He has had a few fevers and nasal congestion, but has been able to move through them without any lingering problems. I would be curious to know how his sensitivity to sound and noises are. I would think that he may have less of a sensitivity to them.

Healing With Homeopathy

The sensitivity to sounds is not why the boy’s parents brought him in for homeopathic care. But this sensitivity was very characteristic of him as an individual person, and very much part of him. Homeopathy looks at, and focuses on the whole person. We all of our own sensitivity, and sensitive areas in our body. This is where we may experience symptoms, discomfort, or flare ups when we are experience situations that are stressful physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. With homeopathic care, the sensitivity becomes less and quiets down.

What is your sensitivity? I invite you to contact me either here through the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com  and set up a Get Acquainted Call. I do work with people who don’t live near me using Skype.

Antibioics Not Healing Ear Infections, Sinusitis, and Allergies – Homeopathy Heals

Over the past week, several people have mentioned to me that they, or their child, are suffering either with chronic ear infections, chronic sinusitis, or allergies. Antibiotics has been the form of treatment that most of them have been using, and actually, many courses of antibiotics have been prescribed, lasting 3 months, 8 months or longer. And the person is not feeling better. The symptoms may have subsided, for a time, but they have returned. There has been no healing.

I believe that people want to feel better, and parents want their child to feel better. When someone has gone through several courses of antibiotics, and there has been no healing, it is time to look to homeopathy for a deep healing. Actually, I want to say, come to homeopathy, first.

Coming To Homeopathy

The homeopath will want to know how the person is experiencing what is bothering them – the discomfort, the pain, the  discharges, the emotional state, the dreams, the fears, how what bothers them affects them, when it started, how often does it come up, what is the problem in having this and more. Through listening, observation, asking some questions, and talking to the parents if it is a child, information is gathered that is specific to this person. This gives the homeopath an understanding of how the ear infection, the sinusitis or the allergy is for this person.                                                                 One-size-does-not-fit-all 2

The homeopathic remedy that is given fits this person, fits YOU  (Like Cures Like), and is healing for YOU. It is not a homeopathic remedy for the ear infection, sinusitis, or allergy. It is not a one size fits all treatment, which is common in western medicine. It is a healing.

I am happy to talk more if you or a loved one is experiencing an ongoing ear infection, sinusitis or allergy. Either contact me here on the blog post or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

My Ear Hurts – Homeopathy Heals

An earache or ear infection can be very painful. Some children have a few, and some children have ongoing ones, with antibiotic, after antibiotic, that doesn’t help at all.  And the overuse of antibiotics is now thought of as being a possible cause of a child developing a peanut allergy. See my blog post OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS MAY BE A CAUSE OF PEANUT ALLERGIES.

baby ear acheI want to let people know that there are other choices to help an earache or ear infection other than antibiotics. Homeopathy is very helpful.  As with anything, each person experiences an earache unique to them.  I have listed a few homeopathic remedies below that are helpful for earaches. When you read the description, you can see how different each remedy is.  The side of the earache? How it came on? Thirst? Emotional state? Cold or warm?  What makes them better? Worse?

Homeopathic Remedies

Observe the person who has the earache or ear infection, and match it to the remedy that is similar.

Aconite – comes on after being exposed to cold/dry wind or shock. Sudden onset. May come on after a fright. Sensitive to noise. External ear is red. Pain is sharp and severe. Thirsty for cold drinks. Restless, anxious, fearful, screaming with pain. Worse at night, from noise and pressure. Better in fresh air, from rest, and hot applications. May also have a high fever and/or swollen glands.

When one of my sons was a baby, he developed a fever. His ear may have been hurting as well. A couple of days before this, there had been an extremely loud clap of thunder during the night. (We very rarely have thunder in the San Diego area.) At the time, he had started to cry from the loud noise, and seemed very, very frightened. Remembering his response to the thunder several days before, I gave him the remedy Aconite. This homeopathic remedy helped him a lot.

Belladonna – comes on from exposure to cold/dry wind, or getting the head wet. Sudden onset. Right sided. Ear is bright red. Eardrum is red and bulging. Hears noises in the ear. Pain is severe, stitching, sharp, throbbing. Pain comes on suddenly. Pain may extend to neck. Tongue is “strawberry” in color. Pupils are dilated. Thirst less. Head is hot, and the extremities are cold. Restless. Delirious. Confused. Screams with the pain, even when sleeping.

Calcarea carbonica – may come on from getting wet. Putrid discharges. Hearing may be impaired. Throbbing pain. Person is slow, sweaty, sour and sluggish. Worse from cold and exertion. Better with rest and heat. Glands may be swollen. May be stubborn and obstinate. Constipated.

Chamomilla – may come while teething or getting wet. One cheek is red and hot, and the other is pale and cool. Pains are throbbing, sharp like a sudden attack. Hot and thirsty. Irritable, capricious, wants things now and then throws them away when given. Wants to be carried. Pains are unbearable. Worse at night, from cold air. Better from cold applications. May have a fever.

Hepar sulph – from cold or cold winds. Moves from left to right. Offensive discharges.  Hearing is impaired. Pain is sharp, stitching, and radiates to jaw or throat. Person is sweaty and chilly. Irritable, angry, and abusive. Better with hot drinks, warmth, head or ear wrapped up, hot applications. Often accompanied by a sore throat or swollen glands.

Pulsatilla – after getting chilled, from emotional stress, measles or common cold. Discharge is thick, bland and yellow/green. Ear is red and feels blocked. Pains are pulsating, darting, tearing, and pressing. Moods are changeable. Thirst less. Chilly. Weepy, clingy, irritable, whinny, and affectionate. Worse at night and from heat. Better from cold, crying, gentle motion, and fresh air. Hearing is impaired. Hears roaring of pulse in ear. Itching in ear.

Silica – may come on after getting chilled, change of weather to cold and dry, from getting feet wet and from vaccination. Has blocked sensation in ear. Itching in ear. Discharge is smelly, thick and bloody. Pain is tearing, pressing outward. Sweaty and chilly. Timid, anxious and worn out. Worse from cold, cold drafts and wind, and open air. Better from warmth, wrapping, hot applications and humidity. Hearing is impaired.

************

If the earache continues or if there are ongoing earaches, it would be beneficial to see a homeopath. The homeopathic remedies I listed here are only a few of many that can help and heal in this situation. When seeing a homeopath, they will find out more about the person, and how the earache is for them. Then the homeopathic remedy that is the most similar to the person will be given.  A good healing will come from this.

I would be happy to talk further about how homeopathy can be of help for earaches and ear infections. Either leave a comment below or contact me through my website, http://www.homeopathytoheal.com

We All Have Our Own Unique Sensitive Areas – Homeopathy Heals the Individual

In a previous blog post, I gave a link to an article and video talking about the overuse of antibiotics in children. Very simply, the bacteria that is helpful in the digestion of peanuts was being killed by the antibiotics. So when a child ate peanuts, they were unable to digest them. It is called a peanut allergy. We are seeing a rise of this allergy, which can be life threatening. If you want to read the article and view the video, I give the link to both in blog post is OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS MAY BE THE CAUSE OF PEANUT ALLERGIES.

After reading this article and viewing the video, I immediately thought of how children with autism have issues with their digestion. I had recently talked with a mother whose autistic teenage son is doing very well on a gluten and dairy free diet. These foods were difficult for him, causing digestive issues as well as behavioral and processing ones. Many children with autism have these digestion issues, and sensitivities to gluten and dairy products.

Food Allergies and Autism

Why are we seeing more food allergies and autism in our children? I just found it so interesting that the digestive system is affected in both of these situations. Most likely, these children have a more sensitive digestive system. In the 1990’s, when Dr. Andrew Wakefield was still practicing medicine, many parents brought their child to see him for treatment. Dr. Wakefield was/is a gastrointestinal surgeon. These children were having digestive issues, and some of them were on the autistic spectrum. Dr. Wakefield saw a connection between children who had autism with those who had an adverse reaction to the MMR vaccine. I know this is controversial, and this isn’t what this blog post is about.  But there is something about how medication, whether the overuse of antibiotics, or vaccines, is effecting children, and effecting their digestive system.

Sensitive Area of Our Body

In other blog posts I have mentioned that most of us have a more sensitive area of our body and/or body’s functioning capability. For some it is their stomach and digestive system, for others it is headaches, skin eruptions, anxiousness, insomnia, to name just a few. Most likely for the children I am writing about in this blog post, their sensitive area was the digestive system.  When they have stress, or pressure, or any external or internal upheaval, they will experience symptoms in their digestive tract. Medication, or too many doses of a medications, or a vaccine may be one of these triggers. With the end result being severe damage to their digestive system. This is what may have happened to these children.

i am uniqueWe are not a one size fits all.  We are not one medicine fits all. We each have our own sensitivity and our own reactions, and respond to medication uniquely to us.  Whenever someone is receiving medications, the person needs to be monitored well by their physician or their health practitioner. This includes when using homeopathic remedies.

Homeopathy focuses on and treats the individual.  Homeopathy isn’t treating the disease, which is a  name, but how the individual experiences their symptoms, and how it bothers them.  We each are unique.

When going for homeopathic treatment, the homeopath is listening, observing, uncovering the what and the how of what is bothering the person. What is the pain, discomfort like? How does this affect the person? What is the problem with having this? Sensations? Dreams? Fears? Emotional state? With an understanding of the person’s uniqueness, a homeopathic remedy is selected that is similar to what the person is experiencing. It is a remedy for this person, not the disease. The remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, healing at the root, at the core of the problem.

With the children, or adults, who have food allergies and/or on the autistic spectrum, homeopathy can be a big help in their health care. It may not totally reverse what has occurred. It will though help strengthen and balance them, so they are feeling well in themselves, have less flare ups of their allergies and their behavioral and processing responses, and anything else that is bothering them.
