Caring For Ourselves During This Time – Coronavirus and Homeopathy

I have wondered whether to write about the Coronavirus and homeopathy or not. To me, the word “surreal” keeps coming up to describe what is going on now.

Over the last month or so, I have read from different homeopaths’ newsletters and watched different webinars addressing this health concern. Some homeopathic remedies are mentioned that are helpful, but this information keeps changing because we are getting new information all the time.

A Few Things I Want To Say

Homeopathy can be very helpful if you or a loved one develops the Coronavirus. It is finding out how the person is experiencing the virus – what their symptoms are like, and giving the homeopathic remedy that is similar. Homeopathy was very helpful during the 1918 flu epidemic. The mortality right of those people who used homeopathy was very low.

What I have read is that if you develop a fever, don’t suppress it by taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen. A fever is the body’s way of fighting/burning off bacteria and viruses by warming and heating up the body. This Coronavirus does not like heat. We don’t want to suppress the fever. So even if you are not ill, drink hot drinks, not cold ones. And take a hot bath or shower. Putting Epsom Salts in the bath water can be helpful. If you do develop a fever, there are homeopathic remedies that can help. Ferrum phosphricum 30C or the Cell Salt by Hylands Ferrum Phosphoricum 6X (depending on what is available), may help generally, without knowing the specificness of the fever.

The emotional state of the person is also important. Many of us may be feeling a lot of fear, ceramic heartsanxiety and panic. This all adds to our stress level. Personally for me, I have been thinking do I have enough of what I need – enough food, water (I buy water from the water store), gas in my car, etc. My feelings of enough actually come from when I was growing up. I did have enough material things, like food, but I didn’t feel that there was enough attention and love to go around. So with this situation that we are all in, some of our own emotional states and sensitivities are being triggered. I am also putting together homeopathic remedies to send to my two sons to add to the homeopathic kit they already have.

Previous Posts

I am giving links to previous posts I have written about coughs and flus. In these posts, I list some homeopathic remedies that are helpful.

Be Kind To Yourself

Be kind and loving to yourself. Listen to what you need. If you are feeling panicky and anxious, accept it, and do things to help yourself with it. Dopaper music hearts activities that you enjoy.  This time could actually be a very restful, calming and loving time.

Why Do People Come To Homeopathy?

Why do people come to homeopathy?

Who comes for homeopathic treatment?

I always say, I see people for all sorts of health concerns, and see people of all ages.

The number one reason someone comes for homeopathic care is that they have a health homeopathy pelletsconcern that is bothering them. They are and have done other treatments, western medicine included. They are not doing better, and they want to feel better.

Sometimes they are people who are doing holistic forms of medicine. Some people are new to holistic medicine. Most are new to homeopathy.

And then there is what is bothering them. I think this is what most people relate to when seeking care. They will ask, have you helped others with _______________?  My answer is sometimes yes, and sometimes no, and continue to say that homeopathy treats the person. It is how the person experiences what bothers them.

Homeopathy looks at the individual. Two people may come in with the same diagnosis or similar health concern, and most likely each would need a homeopathic remedy that fits and addresses them. The suggested homeopathic remedy may not be the same one for each of these two people.

Here are some of the health concerns people have called me about recently, and why they have come to homeopathy.

  • Difficulty breathing
  • PANDA’s – anxiety, fatigue, ongoing infections, OCD
  • Adult acne – ongoing chronic acne
  • Eczema – in an adult, eczema in a child
  • Digestive issues
  • Thrush
  • Cysts
  • Lyme’s Disease
  • Adult – ADHD
  • Grief
  • Coughs/Colds
  • Menopausal issues
  • Urinary tract issues
  • Baby in breech position
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Autistic spectrum

CLASSES

To educate people on how homeopathy can be helpful and be part of their health care, I often hold classes. The information in the classes are on homeopathy in general, and a specific topic of care for self treatment

I feel excited about two classes I am offering. Below is the information of the two classes with the link to register through the San Diego Breastfeeding Center. Although, the classes are held at the San Diego Breastfeeding Center, (8325 University Avenue, La Mesa, CA. 91942), they are open to all, not just a breastfeeding family.

And those people who live outside the San Diego area and are interested in a class like these, please contact me and we can arrange a virtual one or another location for the class.

Homeopathy, Helping A Baby In Breech Position

This is a happy story.

Along with doing other forms of medicine, homeopathy was helpful in turning a baby that was in a breech position, and resulting in a normal, vaginal delivery.

A Happy Story

A woman, who I had met in one of my classes, was pregnant with her second child. Her first child had been in breech position, and did not turn before delivery. A c-section was done. With this present pregnancy, the mother did not want to have another c-section, for many reasons.

The mother contacted me about a month after the class, and said that this baby was in breech infantposition. She wanted to do homeopathy to help. She had done some reading, and mentioned the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla, which often can be helpful when a baby is in breech position.

I suggested she come in for an appointment, and let’s see if Pulsatilla fits her (is similar to her), or possibly another homeopathic remedy would be better. She was very much in a Pulsatilla state.  And we did use Pulsatilla. The baby did not turn.

Several weeks after this, she had scheduled an appointment with her doctor to do a hands on manipulation to help turn the baby. The manipulation was with one hand on the head of the baby, and another hand on the bottom. There is a 50% chance that the baby will turn. The mother told me she had taken Arnica montana to help if she experienced any bruising or soreness from when the baby turned inside of her.

The baby turned after the first manipulation, (I think they were going to do 3, and then wait a week and try again.) and was in the correct downward facing position. I found out later that the baby stayed in this position, and did not turn back. The birth was a vaginal delivery and was quick. Both mother and baby were, and are doing well.

I had said to the mother when we met for the appointment that using Pulsatilla would be helpful for the birth, even if the baby did not turn. The baby did turn though. Even though the baby did not turn when we had used the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla, I think it helped in turning the baby when the doctor did the manipulation. And it also helped in keeping the baby in the downward position, ready for birth.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy can very much be part of a mother’s and baby’s care during pregnancy, delivery and post-partum. I suggest seeing a homeopathic practitioner, a homeopath, and not to self treat. With this mother, there was a specific way the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla was used, in terms of how often, and the potency or strength of the homeopathic remedy. As with any care that we receive, it is important to have the practitioner manage the case, and to do follow up appointments with the practitioner. This includes when seeing your homeopath.

Homeopathy Class

Feeling Injured – And Another Class On First Aid And Homeopathy

I am happy to be offering another class on the use of homeopathic remedies for first aid situations, such as with falls, burns, insect bites and sprains on July 13th at Lifelong Yoga.  In this post and in the class, I am going to talk a bit about injuries that may have occurred in the past, how they can affect one’s health, and how homeopathy can be helpful in their healing.

The information for the class is below. (If you are not local to the San Diego area, and are interested in a class on the use of homeopathic remedies for first aid, we could schedule on online/virtual class.  Contact me if you are interested. )

First Aid

When we have a first aid situation we look for relief and help in the healing.  We may go to our physician, our chiropractor, our acupuncturist, our homeopath, our massage therapist or other healing practitioners we see.  We get the help we need at the time of the injury/trauma.

Yesterday, a long time patient of mine, called because she was having severe pain in her broken heartright buttocks area. She had been doing a lot of physical work, cleaning out her house, and recently a close friend of hers had passed away. This loss brought back feelings of grief and sadness that she had after losing her mother and her husband years ago. She had seen her acupuncturist, and now was calling her homeopath.  She was experiencing physical symptoms, thinking that she had over done things, and there was an emotional component, the loss.  Homeopathy was addressing both of these – the physical and the emotional.

Another Patient

Sometimes, there may be lingering effects from the trauma we experienced, even though we may have gotten help at that time. Or, we may have not known that there was a trauma when something happened.

For example, a patient of mine had pain in her abdominal area. It wasn’t menstrual pains or cramping, although it did occur right before her period. She had it checked out by her physician, had some tests done, such as a colonoscopy, and nothing was found to be the cause of what she was experiencing.

When she came to see me, and was telling me about her situation,  she mentioned that she had had two cesarean sections, and that there had been a lot of scar tissue developed from both of the  c- sections. This was a trauma, and could be thought of as a first aid situation, at the time. The given homeopathic remedy (Bellis perennis) helped her tremendously with the pains she experienced – the pains became less and eventually not at all. This was an example of an injury, a first aid situation that had happened, and the lingering effects from it.

Learning About The Patient

When I meet with a patient, I often ask what was going on at the time when these symptoms started. This could be an event or situation in their life, a trauma of some kind, such as a fall, surgery, an emotional loss, or a job loss, for example.  globuli-3163133_960_720Whatever it is, can often be the start or the onset to what is bothering the person, and which brought them in for homeopathy. And in a way, this trauma is a first aid situation at the time, and from it a more chronic type of condition has developed.

The following types of traumas and injuries may also be considered in the category of first aid. Homeopathy can be helpful to them, if it is something that happened recently, months, or even years ago.

  • emotional trauma – loss of a loved one, a job, a home, war experience
  • surgeries, procedures and dental work
  • falls, concussions, head injuries, car accidents, sports injuries
  • giving birth and the delivery – not well since for the mother, and the behaviors of the baby
  • food poisoning
  • exposure to toxins
  • drug and vaccine reactions

Making Homeopathy Visible – Inspired By Seth Godin

“The invisible limits

Words like חמץ and kx’āhã don’t appear in English. These words, like thousands of others, include sounds that aren’t part of the normal spoken range of the language. We don’t have difficulty saying or hearing these sounds, they’re simply sounds we have rules against.

The question is: Is the alphabet we use missing those sounds because we don’t use them, or is it that we don’t use those sounds because we don’t have letters for them?

If you can’t see it, you can’t say it. And that goes for more than words.”

*******

The above is from Seth Godin’s blog for March 18, 2019. If you click on the title above, “The invisible limits”, you will go to Seth’s site.

Inspired By Seth Godin

I wanted to share Seth Godin’s post with you. The last line has some similarities about homeopathy, particularly about people knowing about homeopathy.  If someone does not see homeopathy, they don’t say it, they don’t seek it out and use it. Specifically, if they don’t see it:

  • in the media – written, audio, TV
  • on business signs on buildings
  • as part of a integrative health practice
  • listed as one of the healing modalities that is offered through their health care plan
  • included in health articles

All of what we don’t see, such as homeopathy, is still out there. Homeopathy may be somewhat invisible here in the United States, but in other countries, such as England, France, Germany, India, Australia, homeopathy is visible. It is seen, is known, is used, and is often a big part of someone’s health care.

Making Homeopathy Visible

I work at making homeopathy visible. I write this blog about homeopathy. At times, I offer classes and talks about homeopathy. I talk about what I do with people I meet. I am always wanting to get homeopathy out to people. Basically, saying: hey, homeopathy is a wonderful healing modality that is helpful for so many health concerns people experience today, and it can be used along with other healing modalities.

I have often said over the years, that I need a building, with a BIG NEON sign on it, blocks spelling homeopathysaying HOMEOPATHY.

Making homeopathy visible.

To all my readers, a big thank you, because you help make homeopathy visible.

And as an aside, throughout homeopathy’s history, there have been times that it was very visible and part of people’s health care. Other times, homeopathy was not seen as well, not as visible, but was still available and used. Homeopathy won’t go away. It will be here, helping people with their health.

More About Arnica Montana – A Personal Story

Arnica Montana is often the first homeopathic remedy that someone uses, introducing them to homeopathy.  Moms use the remedy a lot with their children. I have written about the use of Arnica Montana for first aid situations, such as traumas, falls, surgeries, and injuries in several of my blog posts. Here is one of those posts.

Each homeopathic remedy is not just for one health condition. The thinking that I have this _____________________, then I need this homeopathic remedy, is not how homeopathy works. I know we do so that with Arnica, using it when there is an injury, as I wrote above, but Arnica can be used, like other  homeopathic remedies, for not just one thing.

Homeopathic remedies have what we call a “picture”, which is a description of the remedy. As a homeopath, I am matching the picture of the person to the picture of a homeopathic remedy. This is Like Cures Like, the main principle of homeopathy – the Law of Similars.

A Personal Story

My left arm started to be very painful. I have had something like this before. I call it a “cold” in my arm.  It hurt in several different places on my arm – around the elbow, the upper arm, the shoulder, the shoulder blade and even down to the fingers. It was a sore, bruised feeling. It hurt almost all the time, and more so when I moved the arm, and even when I moved my right arm, my left arm would hurt. (We are connected.)  At night, getting into a comfortable position took time. I babied the arm, and wore clothes that were easy to put on and didn’t need help in snapping or zipping.

I gave myself the homeopathic remedy Bryonia at first. It didn’t seem to help. Then I thought, I am feeling bruised and sore. So bruised. I didn’t injure the arm, nor was there any kind of an accident. But there was this sore and bruised feeling. So I took the homeopathic remedy Arnica. I dissolved three 30C pellets of Arnica in water, and took  arnica lying downseveral doses of it (teaspoonfuls), over a period of time. A day or so later, I took Arnica 200C potency, and really felt a change after that, a bettering – less sore and bruised. The next morning, I noticed I was starting to use my arm more, still being careful with it. And the healing has continued.

When I had talked with a friend about my arm, she asked me if I had thought about getting a massage. I immediately said, “I don’t want to be touched”. At first I thought, that is not true, because I am touching my arm at times, feeling the points where it hurts, and slowly, gently pressing on them and massaging them.

I thought about what I had said, that I don’t want to be touched. It was true. I didn’t want my arm to be touched. I didn’t want anyone to touch it. And I was being so very, very careful with my arm, not letting anything touch it.

The “I don’t want to be touched” is a keynote, a main characteristic, of the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana, along with the sore and bruised feelings. The person will say, I am fine, but they don’t want to be touched, because they are not fine. And this is what I was saying. It was so interesting to me that I said that.

I didn’t have an injury, but as I am writing this, I remember that I was noticing that I was having very different dreams than I usually have. In these dreams I had the feeling of being threatened and of the possibility of being hurt. I found I was escaping from a lot of situations that could be dangerous. Perhaps in some ways, I had felt injured, maybe not physically, but something may have happened in my life, maybe on an emotional level, and I was feeling injured. This was being expressed through my dreams and through the physical sensations of soreness and bruising I was experiencing.

Homeopathy To Heal

To come to the homeopathic remedy that is needed, it is ALWAYS finding out how the person is feeling, not that they have __________________. How the person is feeling can manifest in many areas. Some of these are: physical symptoms, dreams, fears, emotional states, mental functioning, and spiritual questioning. All of this information is what guides the homeopath in selecting the homeopathic remedy that fits the person, that is similar to the person, and helps in their healing.
