“Long Haul” Cases

I was listening to an interview on an NPR program. The program was talking about long haul cases after someone has had the coronavirus (COVID- 19).  In this program it was mentioned that after people had the coronavirus, people are experiencing lingering symptoms that are affecting their every day life and work. They are having difficulty in getting disability or insurance coverage. Medical tests are being given by doctors, showing that there are no medical problems. Some doctors are saying that these health issues may all be in someone’s head, psychosomatic. This is similar to what is often said about someone who has chronic fatigue syndrome. In a way, it is a dismissal of what people are experiencing. The long haul symptoms are becoming chronic health issues.

I have written in past blog posts how homeopathy is helpful for people who have the coronavirus, had the virus, and have or had a reaction to the vaccine. Over these last two years, I have attended many webinars on how homeopathy is helpful for these situations. One of the homeopaths who gives these webinars is Jeremy Sherr. In his last webinar, he was saying that this virus, the Omicron, jumps all over the place and comes back. He has seen, and I have also seen in myorange-2912863_960_720 practice, that several homeopathic remedies are needed over the course of when someone is ill. This is generally the case with acute illnesses, like a virus. He also said, that it is important to address the person when they are sick, with homeopathy, helping to prevent the possibility of a long haul case developing, which can become a chronic health issue.

A CASE

This is a woman, who when she first became ill, started with a very high fever, about 100F to 101F, which ran for about 5 days. The first day she had a severe headache. She said it hurt all over her head and lying down to sleep did not help. After the 5th day, the fever lowered to about 99F, running off and on for several days. Her normal is about 96.7F.  She had a dry cough, in her throat. Nothing was in her chest. At night, her mouth was very dry. She drank a lot of water at night helping with the dry mouth. Sleep was not necessarily good; it was the sick sleep. She had different dreams. One dream was very unusual for her. She had it twice in one night. This dream lead to a choice of a homeopathic remedy for her. She was tired and napped. Her appetite was less, and food didn’t taste good. About 10 – 14 days, the fever stopped. She started to feel very weak. having no stamina she said. Doing any household task was – how am I going to do this? Not having the stamina was the hardest and actually the scariest part of being sick. Am I going to get better? she thought.

We used different homeopathic remedies over this period of time, as the symptoms changed and moved. There wasn’t necessarily one homeopathic remedy that I would say addressed her the whole time. I think though that they helped to move to case. The fever lessened and went away. The dry mouth subsided. She started to get her strength and stamina back, taking things slowly as she went back to work and doing her daily activities. There were no lingering symptoms. This didn’t turn into a long haul case.  She also took supplements during this time.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

I like to give people hope in regards to their health care. Homeopathy can be helpful when someone is sick with an acute illness. One or several homeopathic remedies may be needed when someone is sick. These remedies assist the body in its innate healing ability, helping to move the person through the illness so they are no longer stuck. The long haul cases are stuck. Homeopathy helps to prevent long haul cases or a chronic health issue to not develop after having the coronavirus.

I invite you to see how homeopathy could be of help to you or a loved one who is experiencing long haul symptoms, the virus, side effects, or any other health issue. It is never too late to use homeopathy. You can contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I work with people in person and virtually.

It Is Always Individual

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine.

In homeopathy, it is always finding out about the person, and giving the homeopathic remedy that is similar to what they are experiencing, that fits them at this time. My job is to find out about each person, about how THEY experience what bother them, not just going by the name, label, or diagnosis of what they “have”.

It is always individual.

Two people who come to see me may have the same “name” of their health issue. Each of these two people nature-2713472_1280will most likely need a different homeopathic remedy, one that is similar to  them. Yes, they have the same “name” of a health issue, and may experience some of the same symptoms, yet hearing more about how each person experiences what bothers them, shows how different each of them are, thus leading to what homeopathic remedy is similar to them. It is always individual.

That is it always individual applies to whatever brings someone in for homeopathic care. A person may be experiencing behavioral issues, ear infections, sound sensitivities, other types of sensitivities, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, skin eruptions, headaches, flus, the coronavirus, reactions to vaccines, first aid, traumas, anything that bothers a person.

At the start of the initial appointment, I always ask, what is bothering you? We go from there, putting together the pieces that make up this person. Doing it together. Seeing a totality. Giving the homeopathic remedy that is similar to the totality. (The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like or the Law of Similars.) The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing.

If there is something that is bothering you or a loved one, I invite you to contact me. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call. I see people of all ages, babies through older adults. I work both in  person and virtually. Contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Health – Being Who You Are

This is a post I wrote over 5 years ago. I have changed a few things in it. I wanted to share it again with you. 

I want to wish you all a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving. I am very thankful for all of you who are interested and want to know more about homeopathy. 

*******

One day, when I was sitting in my consultation room, I heard a sound outside the patio door. I looked outside, and there in the mulberry tree was a little bird. It was a bird I had never seen before. It was maybe 7 inches long. It’s back had a black and white pattern. It’s head was bright red. It was pecking at the tree. It walked from one place to another, pecking. I watched the bird for awhile. I had had the tree cut back recently, which I do every year, so the tree was very bare and open. That is why I could see the bird so clearly.

ladder back woodpeckerI immediately looked on the internet to see what kind of bird it was. It was a Ladder Back Woodpecker, which is native to the southwest. The black and white pattern reflected a ladder, in a way. The next day, the bird or its friend, came back, pecking on my tree.

I was thinking as I was watching this bird, that it was doing what it knows how to do. It was being itself – looking for food, and perhaps it found some food, and then moving on to find more. It was being who it is.

What We Want

That is really what we all want –  we want to be who we truly are – to love, to be loved, to do work that we enjoy, to enjoy our lives, to enjoy our relationships with friends and family. And to be healthy so we can do and be these things. To be who we are.

A health issue may make it difficult for a person to take part in their life. These are some of what may bother people to the extent that it affects their life. They can’t truly be who they are.

  • Feeling tired all the time.
  • Needing to know where the bathrooms are located when she goes out, because she has chronic diarrhea.
  • Needing to watch very strictly what he eats.
  • Not having an appetite and feeling nausea all the time.
  • Continuing to experience pain and discomfort in his hands since an accident.
  • Ongoing flare ups of breathing difficulties.
  • Feeling anxious and fearful for herself and her loved ones.
  • Constantly scratching his arms.
  • Skin eruptions.
  • Being very sensitive to sounds.
  • Experiencing headaches.
  • Feeling fearful.
  • Lingering effects from a trauma or illness – a fall; an emotional upset or loss; surgery; the flu or coronavirus (long haul): a vaccine reaction.

Healing – Being Who You Are – Being You

With homeopathic care, the whole person is healing. The health issue that brought the person in for homeopathic care is better, AND, the person is feeling better in themselves.

One woman came to homeopathy because she was experiencing flutterings of her heart. These became less, and she was feeling more energetic. She was able to do more activities during the day and had more energy to do these activities. She said she was feeling like herself again. I could see this in her face.

It is not that the person is changed when having homeopathic care; it is that they can be more of who they are. They are no longer feeling bogged down and hindered with a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual health issue, which has been limiting how they live their life and how they interact in the world. As they are healing, they become more of themselves, just as the bird was pecking on my tree, being who he was, the person is being who they are.

Wanting To Be Heard

Wanting to be heard.

I am always reminded of this. With my patients. With my interactions with people. With myself.

We want to be heard. Sometimes we want to be agreed with, to be acknowledged, to be validated, to say out loud what is going around in our heads. to share, to just say.

When I said this to a friend, that I want to be heard, she said we want to be loved. hearts transparent

And we want a safe place to be heard.

When I meet with a patient, finding out what is bothering them, taking their case, many people talk. They usually talk about a lot of things, in addition to what brought them in to homeopathy.

Wanting to be heard:

  • A patient’s mother said to me that this is the first time someone agreed with her that there is a connection between the brain/mind/head and the gut. Her son was my patient.
  • Another patient said, this is the first time a health practitioner has really listened to what I am experiencing with my health.
  • Another asked me how do you feel about this? I answered, you are taking care of your health, and doing what you feel is right for you. I think what the person was really wanting was to open a conversation about something that was bothering them, which was how their family felt about their choices about health, not that she necessarily wanted my opinion.
  • A patient told me when she said to her husband go see Pam, it was not just for his health concern, but for someone to listen to him.
  • A man was telling me about a painful event in his life. He was filled with so many emotions, expressed on his face, through his gestures, and his words.
  • Many times a patient is given a name or a diagnosis to what they are experiencing. They have used different healing modalities, yet are not feeling better. In the homeopathic process, THEIR particular symptoms are heard, along with the general symptoms of the name/diagnosis. I would like to say that they are being heard, not the name/diagnosis.

At the beginning of the appointment, I always ask first, why are you here? What is bothering you? Often, the name or the diagnosis is stated, then the symptoms, and then more about how they experiencing this health issue. These are some of the health issues (the name or diagnosis) that have brought people in for homeopathy: warts, eczema, depression, grief, anxiety, stomachaches, nausea, hormonal issues, menstrual issues, painful to hear sounds of any kind, shingles, fatigue,sinus pressure, coughs, and flus.

I invite you to contact me about a health issue you or a loved one may be experiencing, to see if homeopathy is a healing modality you would like to pursue. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Each Person’s Healing Process Is Individual To Them

From the beginning of working with a person, I tell them that there most likely will be a series of homeopathic remedies needed, using one at a time. As we work together, I am learning more about them, witnessing, seeing, hearing them. We are doing this together. I always say, it is the person who is healing themselves.

It may be that they need just one or two doses of the first homeopathic remedy. Or they may need several doses of the remedy over a period of time. Or a higher potency or strength of the homeopathic remedy. Or that that the first homeopathic remedy helped, to a point, and brought up other symptoms and now another homeopathic remedy is needed. This may happen several times, the need for a different remedy.

ladder in the woods -4681114_960_720

The image of a ladder has been used by other homeopaths to illustrate a series of homeopathic remedies. One rung is one remedy, the next rung possibly another remedy. The next rung a stronger potency. Next rung, maybe time has passed and the person comes back. And so on. 

It is a process, and individual to the person.

The intention is always for a long lasting healing, not a band aid or quick fix that only lasts for a short time. Although sometimes we do need a quick fix for that moment, and then a homeopathic remedy promoting a long lasting healing afterwards.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one regarding a health issue, I encourage you to contact me through this blog or though my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is something you want to pursue regarding your health. .

Homeopathy Is A Living Medicine

A living medicine.

I talk to myself quite a bit. Recently I said to myself that homeopathy is a living medicine.  I was thinking about how people use homeopathy, and this thought – homeopathy is a living medicine – came to me.

What I mean about a living medicine actually has several aspects.

First – the substances that homeopathic remedies are made from are living. Homeopathic remedies are made from plants, metals and minerals (the period table), animals (animals are not killed to make homeopathic remedies), and what is called imponderables, such as sunlight and moonlight. All of these substances – plants, minerals and metals, animals, imponderables – are alive in some way. They are and/or have energy.

Second – the energy part. The fact that these substances are energy makes them alive. Energy moves, changes, adapts, brush-96240_960_720grows, affects, and reproduces. All of these can be descriptions of being alive.

Third – relating to a living being, a person or an animal (homeopathy is very helpful for animals). The individual. How the person is. How they experience what bothers them. I think this is really what triggered my thought about homeopathy being a living medicine. The individual, what they are expressing through their symptoms, their state, is their aliveness. This is what we want to address. As a homeopath, this is what I want to know, witnessing this with the patient.

The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like. It is giving the similar to what the person is experiencing in the form of the homeopathic remedy. The aliveness of what the person is experiencing, with the aliveness of the  homeopathic remedy that is similar to them. Like cures like. Living/aliveness cures living/aliveness

Fourth – the aliveness. The living. The ability to change. Looking at the individual. This being. Their uniqueness. Not a one size fits all. This is the aliveness. And possibly, healing is alive too. It is change.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopthytoheal.com.  I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is something you want to pursue at this time.

I Feel Grateful – More People Are Coming To Homeopathy

My homeopathic practice has gotten busier. I like that for me. I like that for you, my patients, and for future patients. And I like that for homeopathy. 

I have always said, thought and written that there is a need for homeopathy. I think people are starting to see that homeopathy can fill a need they have. They are seeing that homeopathy can be helpful for them. Or at least starting to be more curious about it.heart in sand

I feel very grateful that people are coming. I feel grateful that they are seeing the value of homeopathy, and they are valuing themselves.

A person may be experiencing some health issue that has been bothering them for awhile. They may have used different healing modalities to help, but continue not to feel well. They want to feel better. At this time they are more open to other options for their health care. 

In my homeopathic practice, I see babies through older adults for a wide range of health issues  – anxiety, skin eruptions, women’s issues, digestive issues, headaches, pain, sleeping difficulties, fears, nervousness, colds, flus, injuries and more.

Homeopathy looks at the individual and the totality of the person. It is how the person experiences what bothers them, not the name of the syndrome or disease. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what the person is experiencing, stimulating their innate healing ability.

My Symptoms Keep Coming Back

People ask me, can you help me with ______?

I hear all sorts of health issues that people are experiencing. Such as, a person has pains and discomforts in their feet. Someone has an extremely itchy rash or eczema eruption. Breathing is difficult for someone. Being very anxious in some situations. Feelings of sadness or depression. Not sleeping well. During menstrual cycle certain symptoms come up. Feeling extremely fearful and/or having nightmares. Ongoing headaches, stomachaches, or digestive issues. Unable to focus or concentrate on their work or schoolwork. Painful pains.  Rheumatoid arthritis. Tremors. I hear all sorts of things.

The person is not feeling well, and they want to feel better.

Recurring Health Issue

Their health issue is often something that has been going on for a awhile, or it had gone away and now it is recurring, again. They may have periodic flare ups of it. They are not feeling better, even though they are doing different types of treatments. They want to feel better.

I have written in an earlier post about a young boy who had recurring nasal congestion, fevers and ear infections. The boy had taken several courses of antibiotics. Each time, he would be better for a month or so, and then the whole situation would happen again. The homeopathic remedy that fit him, that was similar to what he was experiencing, helped him a lot.  He no longer experienced the recurrence of the nasal congestion, the fevers, and the ear infections. 

Often when there is a recurring health issue, the treatments being used help to ease and to palliate when there is an outbreak or flare up. These treatments help the person feel better for the time being, but don’t heal the health issue. The person needs to continue taking the medications or treatments to feel better, often accepting that these recurrences will happen again, and again.

Does this sound like you?

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy heals at the root cause of what is bothering the person. It is a deep healing. As the person heals, the recurrences and flare ups become less and less, till they no longer happen at all. It is a healing. With the young boy I wrote of, I had thought there might be a recurrence of the ear infection as he was healing, but there wasn’t. The cycle was broken. With an adult, the stopping of the cycle may take longer to happen than with this young boy, since the adult has had this health issue for a longer period of time. But the cycle does end.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help a recurring health issue that you have. Either contact me here, through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a 15 minute complimentary Get Acquainted Call. I would be happy to talk with you about yours or a loved one’s health issue.

Transparency

I am about choice – to have a choice in your own health care. That is part of why I write this blog. To tell people about homeopathy, how it can be healing and helpful for someone’s health. Having choices is empowering.

I write in the blogs about patients I have seen. I have talked about the coronavirus. I have written about first aid situations, the flu, digestive issues and more. I am showing you the extend of what homeopathy can be helpful for.

I don’t give you, if you have this particular issue, take this homeopathic remedy. (Maybe I do that in the blogs on first aid.) Doing it that way is what traditional, western medicine does – you  have this, you take this. With homeopathy, we are addressing the individual, you. How you experience what bothers you. Giving you the homeopathic remedy that fits you. It is not a one size fits all medicine. We are all different.

Sometimes, I think I am talking too much homeopathy, like what I wrote above about looking at the individual person. Maybe that is not what you want to hear. I am always tempted to talk homeopathy, to say more. I know homeopathy can be so helpful for people. You might just want to hear, how it can be helpful for me.
.
My passion is to help people naturally through the use of homeopathy, and also for people to have choices.

If I can be of help, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  We could do a Get Acquainted Call.

Helping A Boy With Warts

I want to tell you about George. He is six years old. He never stops moving. He is opinionated. He is the youngest of three boys. In December 2020, I met his mother. Honestly she wasn’t looking for me, nor was she a believer in homeopathy, however, she was at her wits-end trying to find a solution to the warts on George’s hands, elbows, knees, legs and recently his right eyelid.

She had tried every traditional treatment and in July 2020, when she was unavailable to take George to his third treatment with his third doctor, her husband took him. George received two rounds of dry-ice burning and direct injections into the largest warts on his fingers and knees. Although George was strong and fought back the tears, his Dad couldn’t, and when he arrived home he told his wife that he didn’t know what they were going to do, but this was never going to happen to his son again.

Okay, so back to George’s mother meeting me and scheduling an appointment because she was ready to try anything.

George, his mother and I, met virtually on December 12th. I suggested one homeopathic remedy to be taken on the night of the 14th and the morning of the 15th.    

warts-on-hand

At that time, this was what his warts looked like. Note, that his mother didn’t bother to take many pictures or wash his hands because she still thought it was a waste of time.

This is what the hands looked like on February 11th. The warts are completely gone and the skin continues to heal. We also changed the remedy on January 29th.

It is my passion to work with people to support them to naturally and safely heal.
