We are all different. We experience our health concerns uniquely to ourselves. We may be given a diagnosis, a name, a label that includes the symptoms we are experiencing. But we are different.
The treatments we use need to fit who we are as an individual, not just to the diagnosis, the label, or the general, usual, common symptoms of the diagnosis. We need treatments that fit what we are experiencing.
We are not all the same. It is not a one size fits all.
The Season 2020 – 2021
We are hearing a lot about the flu, and the coronavirus as we go into Fall and then Winter. I always like to be supportive and positive in what I write here, and when I see patients. I feel that there is a lot of fear being put out into the public. There are ways to take care of ourselves and our families if we do become ill with the flu or with the coronavirus. Homeopathy being one of those ways, and a very good healing modality.
And the one size doesn’t fit all, pertains to the flu too.
Homeopathy To Heal
If I can be of help to you homeopathically, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I see patients both locally to the San Diego area and outside of it. I use Whatsapp and Facetime.
The last several posts, I had written about how homeopathy can be helpful during the Coronavirus, and it can be.
Even though the virus is upmost in our minds and in our lives, there may be other concerns that have come up that we need to take care of. They could be on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. The concerns could be affecting our bodies (an old or new health issue); our environment and home (repairs, needing to move); our moods (how we are feeling and responding/reacting to what is going on); our finances (employment, how to do business, money); our relationships (feeling alone and isolated, having family members around us all the time); the world (how much control do I have, how is the government handling things or not handling things); and our life (what can I do, how can I be, are there things I can change?).
It is a lot.
Health And Life Issues
These are some of the health and life issues I have been hearing about from patients and people calling me for homeopathic care. You can see that they are a range of concerns.
Difficulty with teeth coming in.
Earache, that is seasonal, but experiencing it early. With a hearing loss.
Digestive issues – pain, diarrhea. Colitis.
Stressed, anxious, overwhelmed. Taking care of house, children and school work. Doing a lot of roles.
Elderly parent in a facility. Not able to see them.
Reaction to other treatment or medications.
Feelings of isolation, depression, and loneliness.
Death of a family member or a close friend.
Different working environments and schedules.
Concerns about health and treatments.
Concerns about their business. Money.
I mentioned creativity in an early post I wrote.
Through this pandemic, people have found ways to do business, to continue their business. Found ways to connect with people. Found ways of using their talents, skills and abilities. Have started new ventures. Have started to learn a new skill or honed one they already have. This creativity reflects our resiliency as people.
When I first wrote this blog, it was before the protests and looting that occurred over the past week. This has added more to our levels of stress, anxiety, sadness, anger, and . I know for me, I feel more unsettled and I feel the heaviness even more so. What helps me is writing this blog, and telling people about homeopathy. Also painting. Right now, I am painting on scraps of wood and leaving them outside in my front yard. Giving some light and color to the world, and to me.
Taking Care Of You
Put you back on the list. Take care of yourself. Whether to get a massage, medical treatment, a haircut, a nice meal, homeopathy, a walk, seeing a friend, seeing a counselor, doing a dance. A little thing/action can have a big effect.
The analogy that we know so well, of being on an airplane and the air mask drops down, applies to us now. Put the mask on you first, before you put it on the person siting next to you, which could be your child. Take care of you.
Homeopathy To Heal
If I can be of help, homeopathically, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you. And read my other posts I wrote about homeopathy and the coronavirus.
I want to clarify a few things from the last post, when I wrote about using the homeopathic remedy Aconite when you feel as they are getting sick.
When you are looking for Aconite in the store, the Latin or botanical name might be used, which is Aconitum Napellus. Most homeopaths use the name Aconite, which I will do here.
My suggestion of using Aconite is for the first signs of not feeling well: fever, sore throat, dry cough, cough, feeling achy, suddenness of symptoms, anxious. Not feeling well.
Aconite will help. But there may be a need for other homeopathic remedies after the use of Aconite. Symptoms might change, and that would call for another homeopathic remedy that fits those symptoms and that state. Seeing a homeopath at that time would be good.
It could be that several different homeopathic remedies will be needed during the course of the virus, as I mentioned above. That is what is being seen by homeopaths and by myself. It is part of the healing process. (See the case I talk about below.)
A FEW PATIENTS
I have seen a few patients over the last month or so who had a cough, had sinus congestion, was feeling tired, and was running a low grade fever. None of these people were tested for the Coronavirus, but they were not feeling well. We addressed their symptoms homeopathically to help them feel better and to heal. They did feel better.
Most of these people started with one homeopathic remedy, and as the symptoms changed and shifted, another homeopathic remedy was needed. With some, a series of remedies were needed.
For example, the person who had the low grade fever, would experience the fever on and off over a week. She felt very tired and chilled. (It also has been cold and rainy here in San Diego.) Her throat felt scratchy a little bit; there was no cough. Before the fever had started, she had a bloody nose once a day for 4 days. We started with the homeopathic remedy Phosphorus, really because of the bloody nose. Then over the next several days, we used Aconite, Ferrum Phosphoricum, Bryonia, Zincum metallicum, and Phosphoric acid. This chosen remedies were based on how she was feeling: her symptoms, her emotional state, and a dream she had that was unusual for her that she had on two consecutive nights. She was feeling a lot of sadness, sorrow and crying a lot. She ate when she was hungry, and she didn’t eat when she didn’t want to. She took vitamins C, D, A, B at times. Took some cell salts. Stayed hydrated. Took warm baths. Breathed through her nose. Slept. Laid low. Got some sunshine at times. Stayed warm. Went through this, did not get worse. Didn’t suppress the fever. Didn’t take Ibuprofen, Advil, Tylenol or Acetaminophen. There were no chest symptoms. And now she is feeling better.
I don’t know if this was COVID- 19, and actually I don’t think it matters. Homeopathy is a wonderful resource for our health care. It works on assisting our own body’s innate immune system in healing.
We are all so very scared about being sick. To know that there are different healing modalities that can help us if we do become sick can be very comforting.
HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL
Homeopathy can be one of these healing modalities. If someone you know or if yourself become ill, whether it is this virus or something else, homeopathy can be very helpful and healing. It is always looking at the what is needed for the individual person.
If I can be of help to you during this time, or for other health issues, please contact me here through this blog or through my website – www.homeopathytoheal.com. I am working with patients local to San Diego and out of the San Diego area. Because of social distancing, I am seeing everyone via Facetime, WhatsApp, Skype and/or phone. One day very soon, I hope to see people in person.
PS – I saw that part of Chris Cuomo’s healing protocol were the use of homeopathic remedies. Again, I am not advocating the remedies that were used for him would be for everyone. When I heard him saying that he had a very high fever and was hallucinating, I thought at that time that the homeopathic remedy Belladonna would be helpful. It turns out that he was given that remedy. I don’t know what potency or strength was used. Belladonna is a homeopathic remedy often used for very high fevers, suddenness of symptoms, flushed and red face, dilated pupils and fevers with hallucinations.
In my last post, I had told you that I have been viewing webinars given by homeopaths from all over the world, talking about what homeopathic remedies would be healing for this pandemic. Homeopathic remedies are starting to emerge.
The remedies that homeopaths are seeing that are helpful for this epidemic are coming from many cases of patients who have the virus. A common theme/thread between these cases starts to emerge, and leading to the homeopathic remedies. It is almost as if many people make up one case, one individul. And interestingly, where you are living in the world, also can determine which homeopathic remedies are healing for this pandemic.
The homeopathic remedy Aconitum Napellus – Aconite – is being suggested by many homeopaths to use when you are experiencing first signs of not feeling well, whether it is a fever, a scratchy throat, achiness, a little cough, a runny nose etc. The person might also feel quite anxious, panicky, fearful, and may be fearing that they may die. (A lot of us are feeling panicky.)
By using Aconite, it may stave off the virus developing further, or make the symptoms less severe. Other homeopathic remedies may be useful after using Aconite. It is good then to see a homeopath.
My suggestion is to use Aconite 30C. You probably can purchase it at your local health food stores, or Whole Foods type of stores. I know someone who ordered it from Amazon.
People usually take remedies dry, just taking the pellets, but in acute/first aid situations I have them dissolve the remedy. This makes it that you don’t need to use so many pellets. When initially made the homeopathic remedies are a liquid, so when you dissolve the remedy you are bringing it back to its original form.
Dissolve two pellets in 4 ounces of filtered/spring type water. I am saying to use just two pellets, so that you have the remedy for later use for yourself or for other people. If you use more pellets you are not increasing the dosage.
One teaspoonful is one dose. Before taking the dose, stir the water 1 – 3 times. Stirring slightly increases the potency/strength of the remedy.
You may want to take several doses in a day – such as 4 for a couple of days. If you start to feel better, stop taking the remedy. You may need to start taking it again in a few days, if some of the symptoms come back. That is part of the healing.
The water is good for 24 hours, and then you need to throw it out, and start new. Washing every thing in hot water.
This one glass of dissolved Aconite could be used for the whole household. Homeopathy is helpful for all ages, babies through older adults. Each person having their own teaspoon and washing it before using it again. By sharing the dissolved remedy, you are making sure you have enough of the remedy. And if it is a lot of people, you may want to use 6 – 8 ounces of water
HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL
It is good to also follow the prodigals that we are hearing about, and to see your physician if needed.
Homeopathy is a wonderful healing resource. I am seeing patients during this time, local to and outside of the San Diego area. I can work via phone, WhatsApp, Facetime or Skype. If I can be of help to you or your family, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com
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, anxiety 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.
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. Do activities that you enjoy. This time could actually be a very restful, calming and loving time.
