My Niche As A Homeopath

A lot of times, I am asked what is my niche? Who do I see? What kinds of health concerns do I see in my homeopathic practice? Do I have a specialty area? Do I see people who have  _______________?

My Answer

I don’t see any particular health concern. I see mostly children and women, for all sorts of health concerns, but not a particular area, such as women’s issues. (And then I think to myself, maybe I should have a niche, a specialty area.)

The people that do come for homeopathy are usually ones who may have an ongoing chronic condition. They are better, from taking some form of medication or receiving healing treatments, but then they are not feeling well, again. They experience a flare up of their health concern, such as another ear infection, another skin eruption, another digestion upset, or another migraine headache.

For example, a 2 year old boy I saw several years ago was having recurring ear infections and nasal congestion over a period of 6 months. (That is a quarter of his life!) He was proscribed antibiotics. He would be better for 4 weeks or so after the course of the antibiotics, and then the ear infection and nasal congestion would return. This happened several times. After one dose of the given homeopathic remedy, he did not have any more ear infections. He did very well.

My Niche

If I listen to the answer I give to people when asked what my niche is, I am actually telling them my niche. I didn’t realize that. So, here is my niche:

  • People who want to be better, who want to feel well. niche
  • People who have an ongoing, chronic health concern. A chronic health concern means, that they feel better and then feel worse again. They experience periodic flareups.
  • People who live with the health concern, managing and living with it, in any way they can.
  • People who have used other healing modalities, that have helped by giving them some relief, but there has not been a healing at the root cause of what is bothering them.
  • People who are open to doing another form of healing.
  • People who are open and interested in homeopathy.

This is my niche.

And these are the kinds of people who I mostly see in my homeopathic practice.

Finding Out About The Person – The Homeopathic Consultation (Part 1)

I receive phone calls, emails, and messages from people asking me if homeopathy could help their particular health concern. Very often, I am asked, I have this _______ or I experience this symptom, what would you suggest for me?

I don’t know. And I say that. I say I don’t know. Then I say, I need to find out how this is for you. I need to know more. I suggest you come in for an appointment and lets see what is going on with you.

What Happens In A Homeopathic Consultation

When I meet someone for a homeopathic consultation, this is what is happening. I am:

  • Listening. Observing. Witnessing. So I can understand what the person is experiencing. Finding out what is bothering them, and how they experience it. What this is like for them.
  • Creating a place and space for someone to talk and to show who they are and what bothers them.
  • Listening to the spoken and the unspoken words. I often say, I am listening through.sculpture-2275202_1280
  • Watching, seeing, hearing, the hand gestures, body movements, facial expressions, sounds the person makes, and the words and language the person uses to express themselves.
  • Specifically, finding out about a symptom – what makes it better, worse, location, how experienced, when it first started, how it feels, other symptoms with it, how is it to have the symptom.
  • Putting all the pieces/parts together, making a whole picture of the person. Like a jigsaw puzzle, being put together. Or a painting being painted in front of me. But I don’t have the complete picture in front of me to know what the final outcome will be.
  • Learning the person’s world and their language. How they view their world. How they experience their world.
  • Giving a homeopathic remedy that is similar to this whole picture of the person.

Always Finding Out About The Person

What I describe here, is what I do whether the person has:

  • a chronic condition – ongoing, experiencing flare ups of symptoms periodically, never quite going away, such as eczema, menstrual difficulty, digestive issues, asthma, anxiety, auto-immune conditions and more.
  • an acute condition – the flu, a cold, an infection, a cough, a childhood disease. An acute could also be a flare up of the chronic condition.
  • a first aid situation – a fall, a trauma, dental work, surgery, a sprain/strain, a burn.

The length of time I spend with a person during a consultation may vary depending on whether it is a chronic, an acute, or a first aid situation. But always, always, I am finding out about the person – the what, and the how of what bothers them.

Look for Part 2 to this topic – the homeopathic consultation – in my next post.

*******

If I can be of help in regard to a chronic, an acute or a first situation, I invite you to contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you, and to find out what is bothering you.

Feeling Desperate Because You Don’t Feel Well

Several weeks ago, a man called and asked if I have helped people with mercury toxicity. I asked him, how are you experiencing this? Why do you think yo have mercury toxicity? He listed some symptoms, of which included ringing in his ears, extreme weakness, and decrease in muscle tone.

He said that he has had this condition for the past 2 years, and thinks it started when he was exposed to some hazardous substance when he was cleaning out his garage. He had been checked out by a neurologist, had a MRI, and nothing was found to be the cause of the symptoms he was experiencing.

He continued to not feel well, and he said it was getting worse. It was affecting his work and his home life. Some doctors thought he helpmight be depressed, he said, and treatment for depression was suggested. He sounded very desperate. He wanted help, and he wanted help right away.

Past Blog Posts

In some of my past blogs, I have mentioned the kinds of health concerns people have called me about. (You can read that post here.) Very often, it is similar to what this man was saying, not the specific health concern he was talking about, but that the person was not feeling well, had had tests done, and the doctors had not found anything wrong, or maybe something was wrong, but the treatment was not helping.

The person was experiencing symptoms and a state of health that was debilitating, worrisome, uncomfortable, painful, affecting the quality of their life, and affecting how they functioned. The person wanted help, and sometimes they were desperate.

The definition of desperate in THE MERRIAM-WEBSTER DICTIONARY is: being beyond or almost beyond hope; causing despair.

Homeopathy Can Help

Very often, this is when people come to homeopathy, when they are feeling desperate.

In a homeopathic consultation, the homeopath is hearing, understanding, witnessing what the person is experiencing, going to the root of where the symptoms are manifesting from. This is done by understanding the whole of the person, not only the symptoms that brought the person in for treatment. The symptoms are part of the whole. Homeopathy is truly a holism form of medicine.

A homeopathic remedy is given to the person that is similar to their wholeness, stimulating their own healing process. The healing is at the root cause, at the source from which the symptoms manifest from, and the person is feeling better on all levels.

*******

I don’t know if I will hear from this man again who called me. I want to say to him, and to others like him, call and make an appointment and let’s start helping you move towards health.

You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you. I offer a 15+ complimentary Get Acquainted Phone Call.

Hay Fever

Several weeks ago, I wrote a post about allergies. I thought this week I would write a little bit about hay fever, an allergy which is often experienced seasonally.

Four Homeopathic Remedies Useful For Hay Fever

Here are four homeopathic remedies that can be helpful for hay fever. By reading the descriptions, you can see how different hay fever can be experienced, even though it is usually lumped into one category, and treated that way.

Each person experiences hay fever uniquely to them. Some napkin-box-312693_960_720people may experience itching. Some may have more symptoms with their eyes than with their nose. Some may be sneezing. Some may feel very irritable. Some may be better outside. Some may experience a headache. These are just a few of the differences of how someone would experienced hay fever. This difference, or individuality, is so with any other health concern; each person experiences what bothers them uniquely to them.

A shot description of homeopathic remedies:

Allium cepa –  Burning, smarting sensation with watery eyes. Violent sneezing with runny nose. Watery discharge is bland. Nasal discharge is acrid and irritating. Think of how you feel when you cut an onion. This homeopathic remedy is made from the red onion.

Euphrasia – Profuse watery eye and nose discharges. Eye discharge is hot, acrid, and irritating, while the nose discharge is bland. Eyes are red and sore, almost looking like a raccoon.

Sabadilla – Common hay fever symptoms: nasal discharge. Spasmodic/violent sneezing, itchy nose, red and runny eyes. Tickling and itching – nose, roof of mouth, throat. Or a sensation of a hair or morsel hanging down at the back of the throat with the constant urge to swallow. Better outside.

Nux vomica – Typical hay fever symptoms: sneezing, itchiness, runny eyes. Irritable, chilliness, impatience, oversensitive to odors, noise, and touch. Feels need to sneeze, but cannot.

Homeopathic Care

You may even see yourself a little bit in one of these remedies. And maybe one of these remedies will help you. I don’t recommend that someone treat themselves for a chronic condition. A chronic condition is ongoing and periodical, such as hay fever. With this kind of health concern, I recommend that someone see a homeopathic practitioner or homeopath. There are over 4,000 homeopathic remedies. There is one that fits you, that is similar to you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To determine this remedy, the one that is similar to you, the homeopath gets to know the whole of you by listening, observing, and witnessing what bothers you, how you experience the hay fever, and more. The hay fever is a part of the whole picture of you. All of this information helps guide the homeopath in selecting the homeopathic remedy that fits you, is similar you.

I would be happy to talk with you about how you experience hay fever. Either contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

It Is Always A Good Time To Use Homeopathy For Children – Babies, Young Children, Teenagers, Young Adults

When I speak to a mom/dad/grandparent about their child, I almost always say this is a good time for your child to come in for homeopathic care. I say this whether the child is a baby (3 1/2 month old), young child, teenage child or 20 something child. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.

Why Is It A Good Time?

children playingIt is a good time because the child is so young. The health issue that the child is experiencing is not entrenched; they have not had it for a long period of time. Children have a very strong vital force/vitality and respond well to homeopathy.

It is a good time because the child may have just started using medications, or is not using them at all. These medications may help with the symptoms and ease the discomfort, the behavior, the breathing, the itching, but they are not really healing. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

It is a good time because the child is still growing and developing their bodies, their minds, and who they are as a person. As parents, we want the best for our children, in their health and in their life.

It is a good time because often when a child is doing better, it affects the whole family unit, healing the family.                                                                                                                             a-smile-333604_960_720

It is a good time because – I have a soft spot for children. I guess this is my “because”.

What Do Parents Call About?

These are some of the health concerns that parents have called me about that their child is experiencing (and adults experience these types of health concerns too):

  • ear aches and ear infections – being on course after course of antibiotics
  • digestive issues, such as acid re flux, spitting up, stomachaches after eating, chronic diarrhea, difficulty eating certain foods, constant nausea
  • skin eruptions – eczema, warts, rashes
  • continually crying and seeming to be in pain or discomfort
  • breathing difficulties, such as asthma
  • difficultly focusing on school work
  • behavioral issues – angry outbursts, tantrums, pulling inside oneself by withdrawing
  • chronic coughs
  • menstrual issues – painful cramps, being very emotional and weepy
  • reactions to vaccinations
  • sleep issues – insomnia, nightmares
  • just not feeling well

Seeing The Individual Child

Homeopathy is a form of medicine that addresses the person as a whole being and as an individual. It is finding out what bothers the person, and how they experience what          youth-320987_960_720bothers them – uniquely to them.

For example, the child may have asthma. After hearing how the child experiences the asthma and how it affects them, along with hearing about the child’s emotional life, their fears, their dreams, what they like to do, and their health history, the homeopathic practitioner gives a homeopathic remedy that fits this child. Another child who also experiences asthma, would most likely need a different homeopathic remedy, a homeopathic remedy that fits them.

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the child, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits the child. This applies to a child who experiences behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.

Healing With Homeopathy

I invite you to contact me, and see how homeopathy can be of help for your child. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.

What Is Itching You? – Skin Eruptions And Homeopathy

Recently, I was in my local health food store. I was talking to one of the sales people who I have known for a long time. A woman came up to the sales person and said, I am the woman who called earlier about a product for my daughter to help remove skin tags. We all three were standing in the aisle where the homeopathic remedies were located, and that particular product was right in front of us. After the woman left, I looked at the product. It was a box, on which was written “Thuja Occidentalis Homeopathic”. I believe it was an ointment or a liquid that was used topically. (The plant Thuja Occidentalis is made into a homeopathic remedy. The wasn’t the homeopathic remedy of Thuja Occidentalis.)

This interaction inspired me to write about skin eruptions. I have written a little bit about this topic before in two earlier posts. One post talked about eczema, and the other post was in reference to Direction of Cure. I have given the links here.

Skin Eruptions

I know that many people, of all ages, suffer with different kinds of skin eruptions. A skin eruption can be eczema, psoriasis, impetigo, acne, skin irritationrosacea, cysts, boils, warts, skin tags, pustules, hives, or other rashes. They are experienced as being:

  • painful
  • a nerve type pain, such as in shingles
  • a burning pain
  • an itchiness
  • a soreness
  • a redness
  • an inflammation
  • swollen
  • an oozing and discharging of pus or blood
  • become scabbed
  • a dryness
  • a roughness
  • a scaliness and flakiness
  • an embarrassment
  • worrisome
  • a discomfort
  • wanting to hide it and cover it up
  • affecting one’s functioning ability at work and in social situations
  • more

Not Just On The Skin

Please note that I have listed physical sensations AND emotional responses AND how it affects one. I say this because skin eruptions are not just on the skin. They are a reflection of something deeper in the body, stairs spiralthat is manifesting on the skin. To just care for the skin eruption by doing something topically on the skin, such as this treatment that the woman was going to use for her daughter, is not necessarily healing, and is not addressing where the skin eruption is coming from.

A skin eruption is a response or a reaction of something deeper in the body or system of the person. These can be from:

  • an allergic reaction to foods, chemicals, toxins, fabrics, medicines or others substances in the person’s environment.
  • a systemic imbalance.
  • a hormonal change or part of a cycle. It get even be a response to birth control medication – when starting, during or stopping the medication.
  • a reaction to stress, anxiety, grief, fear, or other emotions. I know of a woman who developed hives soon after her husband passed away.
  • a part of the healing that accompanies a fever, such as in the measles and chicken pox. The rash in these childhood diseases are important and part of the healing process. You want the rash to be present.

Homeopathy To Heal

Homeopathy is very healing for people who suffer with skin eruptions. Homeopathy heals at the root of where the symptoms are coming from, in this case, where the skin eruptions are coming from. Each person experiences what bothers them differently. With the understanding of the person’s suffering, a homeopathic remedy that is similar to this is given. This homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process. The person feels better in themselves, and the symptoms that brought them in for homeopathic care are better. In this case, the skin eruptions are better.

To Continue My Story

After the mother had left, I said to the sales person, I would want to know what bothers the daughter. Perhaps the skin tags bother the mother more than they do the daughter. And in fact, they don’t bother the daughter at all. If the skin tags do bother the daughter, I would want to know how she experiences them. It is always finding out about the person, what bothers them, and how they experience it. It is not just treating someone with a one size fits all product.

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.

The Same Pattern Of You

Several weeks ago, I was having lunch with a woman I had met recently. We were learning about what each of us do, and having a good time doing so. She had heard of the word homeopathy, she said. And as we were talking, she realized that she really did not know what homeopathy was, and now she had a better understanding of it.

She said, homeopathy is like giving someone the same pattern of them.

pattern 3Yes, I said, what a wonderful way of saying it – the same pattern.

The Same Pattern

It is giving the same pattern of what the person is experiencing – in their illness, in their problem, in their stuckness. Giving the homeopathic remedy that is the same pattern, the similar to that of the person. This is like cures like or The Law of Similars.

Very simply, if someone is having difficulty sleeping, is an insomniac, and is very wound up at night, they may do well with the homeopathic remedy Coffea crudum. Coffea crudum is made from the coffee plant. And if someone who has allergies or a cold with stinging, burning sensations in their eyes, and a lot of tearing from their eyes and their nose, they may do well with the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa. Allium cepa is made from the onion. These are two simple examples of like cures like. Giving the same pattern, giving the same pattern of what the person’s suffering is like. Actually that is what homeopathy means, similar suffering.

What Is The Pattern

As a homeopath, I hear what the problem is, what the suffering is for the person. It is not just the symptoms. Symptoms are signs or the manifestations of the deeper problem. I am listening, observing, witnessing, the deeper problem, getting to know what the person’s pattern is. And then giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy. Giving the same pattern, as my new friend said. This similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing abilities, pushing them them through were they are stuck. And lessening and quieting down the pattern.

The pattern can be doing the same thing over and over again, having the same reaction to things, having the same physical flare up. Going round and round. I sometimes experience my own going round and round, and that is why years ago, I sought out homeopathic care. I continue to see my homeopath when needed. I do not treat myself. Homeopathy helps to quiet down and lessen my pattern, my round and round.

Healing Your Pattern With Homeopathy

What is your pattern? Or a loved ones pattern? I would be happy to talk to you further on how homeopathy can quiet down your pattern, your round and round. Either contact me here through the blog or through my website  www.homeopathytoheal.com   I have a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Someone is listening and hearing them, without judgment, with wanting to understand what it is that they are experiencing and feeling, to understand what is bothering them. A homeopathic remedy is given, similar to them, similar to what is bothering them – the initial complaint that brought them in and to the whole of them. This homeopathic remedy stimulates their own healing. It is not herbal medicine nor essential oils nor aromatherapy nor supplements. It is a homeopathic remedy. It is homeopathy.

Women Taking Care Of Themselves, With Homeopathy

This post is about women, about women of all ages taking care of themselves. So often, women, and especially moms, don’t really take care of themselves. As I used to say when my sons were younger, I wasn’t even on the list.

Women are so busy taking care of their family members, friends and coworkers, and not always themselves. I have previously written a blog post about caregivers, and another blog post about moms being my ideal patient , which you may want to read. The post on moms, talks about how they are the hub, the center of the family, making sure everyone is taken care of. Now it is time for moms, for all women, young, old, middle-aged to take care of themselves.

Some Of The Women I Have Seen

In my practice, I have seen women of all ages and for various health concerns. There usually is some specific reason that has brought the woman in to see me – a physical complaint, an emotional issue, an ongoing health concern. In addition to this specific reason, there is her, the woman, and how she responds and feels on all levels (physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually) to what has happened in her life. Homeopathy addresses the whole of her. Through listening, observing, and understanding what is at the core of what is bothering her, a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what she is experiencing, to the totality of her. The homeopathic remedy stimulates her own healing process, strengthening her vital force or immune system, healing the specific reason why she came in, and also healing the totality of her.

Here is a little bit about some of the woman who have come in to see me for homeopathic care. Please know there is more to each of these women than what I have written here.

– a 19-year-old, who has very heavy periods, with severe cramping.                                                                                          grandma-612016_640

–  a woman going through menopause, who has hot flashes at night, making it difficult for her to sleep and then not feeling rested the next day at work. Having very emotional responses to experiences and situations in her life. Crying more.

– a woman in her 60’s who has had migraines for most of her life. Still having them after going through menopause.

– a woman figuring out what to do with her life. Has depressive types of thoughts. Taking care of her family. Asking herself, what can I do?

young girl–  a woman who is very involved in the workings of her family’s business. Experiences severe arthritic type pains in her hands, that she describes as a squeezing sensation. Has these pains more often when she is cleaning, using water. Very concerned on how the house is kept.

–  a woman who experiences discomfort when having sexual relations with her husband. She is not really happy in the relationship.

–  a woman who always has had someone helping her. Now she is a widow, and learning how to take care of herself, along with going through grieving for her husband.

– a young girl who has trouble sleeping, experiencing nightmares that keep her awake. During the day she is very irritable.

Some Of The Health Concerns Women Experience

Below is what may have brought the woman in for homeopathic care. Nothing is in isolation, as my teachers have said. Symptoms are not treated separately. It is the totality of the woman who is addressed, and the totality heals.

  • menstrual issues – cramps, PMS, bloating, headaches, late periods, heavy flow, clots, perimenopause, menopause, hot flashes, insomnia, other symptoms related that may come up or are exasperated during the menstrual cycle
  • digestive issues – bloating, constipation, diarrhea, food allergies and sensitivities, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease
  • sleep issues – insomnia, frequent waking, difficulty falling asleep, nightmares
  • pain – muscular, arthritic, nerve, acute or chronic, from an old injury
  • headaches – migraines, allergies, seasonal
  • anxiety, depression, ongoing grief, fears, phobias, focusing issues, memory issues
  • skin eruptions – eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, warts
  • respiratory – asthma, shortness of breath
  • emotional states – sadness, anger, outbursts
  • autoimmune illnesses – chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, polymyalgia
  • what is bothering you?

An observation: it may be that we women always have a cycle. Whether we are actually menstruating, or not menstruating. Whether we are pregnant, or have gone through menopause. This “cycle” time may be when a symptom, a feeling, a thought, a state of being, a health concern, or what bothers us, is more prevalent or more intense than usual.
