Are You Feeling Run Down? Homeopathy Can Help

We lead very busy lives. Work, family, commitments, responsibilities, even leisure activities. We live a fast paced life. Always busy, always having things that need to be done, going non-stop. And we experience a constant bombardment of information from the media.

Taking a break, resting, taking a day off is often a very good idea. Sometimes though, we don’t do this on our own, and our body says we  relaxingneed to. We need to rest; we need to take time off. What happens is that we may start to not feel well. We feel tired. We come down with something – a flu, a cold, a headache, a stomachache, a sore throat. We may experience a flare-up of an ongoing health issue, such as with our digestion, asthmatic symptoms, fatigue, anxiety, depression, skin eruptions and more. Our body is saying, hey, if you don’t take time off and slow down, I will make it so you have to take time off and slow down.

Does this sound a little familiar?

Being Run Down

I am writing this blog after the holiday season. At this time of the year, we have been so busy with family and friends, traveling, making preparations, shopping, going to and hosting parties, fulfilling expectations, eating, and more. And we may have not taken time to be quiet, and have down time. We have become run down.

It is very common to feel run down at this time of the year. It is good to take a day off, to take time for ourselves. And it is always good to listen to our bodies and to our inner voice on how we feel. To honor when we need to take time for ourselves.

Healing With Homeopathy

If this is happening very often to you, and you are feeling run down, becoming sick, and/or having flare-ups of a chronic condition on a regular basis, I invite you to schedule time for yourself, and to see how homeopathy can be of help to you in your health.

I would be very happy to talk with you further about your particular health concern. You can contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I have a 15 minute Get Acquainted Call.

Depression – Homeopathy Loosens Its Grip

I want to share this video with you. I have seen it awhile ago, and recently came across it and viewed it again. It is of a young woman, Sabrina Benaim, reciting a poem she has written describing how she experiences depression.  The poem is titled Explaining My Depression To My Mother, A Conversation. The video is about 3:29 minutes long. It is very powerful.

Depression often takes over, and one feels that that is who they are – nothing else. Sabrina Benaim describes it well. And one feels that they can not get out of it, the depression, as if it has a hold on them. Depression is something that just comes over one, and it is there.                                                                                                      depression

These are some of the lines from the poem:

  •  (depression) is a “shape shifter”, “it is a bear”.
  • “…anxiety is the cousin from out of town that depression thought to bring to the party. I am the party.”
  • “I am afraid of living.””Mom still doesn’t understand. Mom can’t you see, neither can I?”
  • When describing difficulty sleeping, she says “insomnia sweeps me up in his arms”.

Here is the link to the video.  Sabrina Benaim may have performed her poem through button poetry. And it is included in the online magazine everyday feminism. I want to thank Sabrina Benaim for being brave and courageous in sharing how depression is for her in this poem.

Homeopathy Helps The Person Who Experiences Depression

Homeopathy is very helpful for people who suffer with depression. A patient of mine, a woman who has suffered from depression for most of her adult life, has done well with homeopathy. With the start of homeopathic treatment, the periods and length of time experiencing depressive thoughts, and just being in it, have become less and less. And there are more days in which she is feeling good. In fact, she has said I have had some really good days. Good is expressed as being more open to life, sharing herself with others, saying who she is, being more connected with herself, and others. (This is her language, how she describes what is better and how it feels, just like Sabrina Benaim has her language to describe her depression.) Sleep is also better. She is also more confident and clear in her work.  And she remarked that a very good friend of hers has commented that there is a different quality to her voice – a strength, a more self assuredness – even when she is feeling low.

In her particular case, a sign that she needs another dose of the homeopathic remedy, the homeopathic remedy that is similar to her, is when she experiences the fleeting thought of stabbing herself in her chest and abdomen area. She has never stabbed or cut herself. But when she is feeling very, very depressed, she has shared with me during the homeopathic consultation, that she has fleeting thoughts of stabbing herself.

Homeopathy Sees Each Person As An Individual

we are all different pencilsWith homeopathy, it is finding out how the depression is for the individual person. The homeopathic remedy that has helped the woman I wrote about, would most likely not be helpful for another person who experiences depression. There are general experiences and symptoms that most people who experience depression have, but underneath, at the core, each person experiences their depression uniquely to them. The language that they use to describe it, is unique to them as well. In the homeopathic consultation, the homeopath wants to know how and what the suffering is like for each person, listening, and observing. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to this suffering, and then healing process starts.

 

I would be happy to talk further about how homeopathy can be of help for someone who experiences depression. I see people of all ages. Depression may be experienced differently in children than in adults. Either leave a comment below or contact me through my website, http://www.homeopathytoheal.com  I offer a 15 complimentary phone consultation.

Children Who Are “Stressed”, Homeopathy Helps

With two calls this week about potential patients, I thought it was time to write this blog post. I had written a blog post about stress and had mentioned at the end of it (STRESS and Homeopathy) that we don’t often use the word “stress” when talking about children. But children do respond to things happening in their lives, are stressed, and have an automatic response to outside pressures, just as adults do.

Both phone calls were to see if homeopathy would be helpful for a child. One was younger than 5, the other was a preteen. Both children have seen or are seeing a therapist;  neither have started any kind of western medication.  Children do very well with homeopathy. It is a wonderful time to start homeopathy when they are young. I have been saying since these two phone calls that these children are at a fork in the road. If they go down the western medicine road, they will most likely be given medication, and that often snowballs, leading from one medication to another one. These two children are both too young to start this, and why do this to children anyway?

The following are some of the symptoms and behaviors we may see in a child who is having difficulties and is stressed: fears, phobias, depression, oppositional type of behaviors, acting out, bed wetting, PTSD type of symptoms, withdrawal, tantrums, difficulty concentrating, anxiousness, anger, crying, sadness, chronic colds or stomachaches, headaches, difficulty sleeping, nightmares, eating difficulties, digestion issues, skin eruptions and more. Actually anything, and everything. It is just how the child manifests his stress.

child upset or worried

In some ways, children don’t have as much control over their environment as adults do. (Although adults may feel that they don’t have any control either, and that may be part of their automatic response).  The child may be responding and reacting to different things or events that are happening in his life.  The event or situation may have triggered the child’s sensitivity, and thus symptoms and behaviors are being expressed, some of them listed above.

I know as parents, we all do our best and want our children to be happy, healthy, safe, to be loved, loving, and develop into their full potential as human beings. With all our good intentions as parents, we sometimes don’t have control over things that do happen to our children, or to us. Things happen in life; changes occur; and we just go with it as best as we can.  Some of these events and situations could be: how a person is being treated, family issues, divorce, separation, financial changes, loss of a family member, poverty, reaction to medications or vaccines, malnutrition, abuse, disability, war, exposure to chemicals or drugs, food sensitivities, a difficult birth or start to life and more.

When someone brings their child to homeopathy, the homeopath is learning about this child’s sensitivity. This is done through observation, listening to both the parents and the child, finding out about dreams, finding out what bothers them, the child’s likes and dislikes, and more. With all of this, the homeopath gives a homeopathic remedy that is similar. The remedy stimulates the child’s healing process, and the sensitivity quiets down, the automatic response lessens, and the symptoms ease off. For example, the bed wetting has stopped, oppositional behavior has eased, fears have quieted down, coughs and breathing difficulties are no longer occurring. The situation may have not changed, but there is a shift in the child, and now he is able to move on, and handle things better in his life, perhaps even changing his situation if he can. A healing has occurred.

Who Comes To Homeopathy

Who comes to homeopathy?

A mom concerned about her children’s health –  asthmatic symptoms, difficulty sleeping, nightmares, chronic earaches, headaches or stomachaches, behavior issues

A woman who has difficulty with her menstrual cycle –  PMS, menopause, fertility issues, heavy periods, depression, anxiety, insomnia, hot flashes

A man who has a skin eruption that he doesn’t want anyone to see – eczema, psoriasis, constant itching, redness

All sorts of people come to homeopathy, for all sorts of reasons.

I think the main reason, is that the person is not doing better despite using other healing modalities. The person has come to the point that now they want to feel better, to BE better.

Homeopathy heals. It heals at the core of where the symptoms are coming from.

What brought the person to homeopathy is better, as well as the person having a general sense of well being.

Never Well Since…….., Homeopathy Heals

Recently, I spoke to a woman who has been constantly tired. She said that this all started after she had a very bad fall. She hasn’t been well since, she said.

Many times, people may not be well after they have had some kind of physical trauma or emotional loss or upset. Specifically, physical traumas are anything that has happened to the body, or changes to the body, such as: a surgery, a fall, a high fever, a course(s) of antibiotics, an infection,  a pregnancy, a miscarriage, the flu, vaccinations, puberty, and menopause.  An emotional trauma could be a loss of a loved one, a big disappointment, a divorce, a geographical move, a loss of a job, mistreatment, a war experience, and sexual abuse.  There may be other types of traumas that I have not mentioned.

Never well since means that the person has not been well since that particular trauma occurred. The person may have dealt with the trauma, and that was no longer an issue or concern, but they may have developed a particular physical, emotional or mental symptom or a health condition after this.  Now this is their main concern, and they are not feeling well.

Some of these health concerns could be: prolonged headaches, digestive issues, autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, women’s issues, men’s issues, difficulty breathing, skin eruptions, eczema, hair loss, chronic fatigue, insomnia or other sleep disturbances, nightmares, phobias, fears, post traumatic syndrome, just not feeling well, and more.

don't feel well

The person may have seen doctors or other health professionals for help, such as the woman who called me, yet they are still not feeling well. This is a good time to come to homeopathy.

Homeopathy looks at the whole person, knowing that all the parts of the person are interconnected. This includes the prolonged response to the trauma that the person is experiencing – the never well since. Through the understanding of what the person is experiencing in their health concern, the homeopathic practitioner (homeopath) selects a homeopathic remedy that is similar to their suffering.  The main principle of homeopathy is the Law or Similars or Like Cures Like. Each person is unique in how they experience their symptoms and health concerns. The given homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, and the person starts to feel better.

Homeopathy is gentle in its healing and there are no side effects. It heals at the root of what is bothering the person. The person then is feeling better, and the never been well since is also healed.

Healing With Homeopathy: Successful Results

The Society of Homeopaths is an organization that represents professional homeopaths in the UK. In their online publication, an article is written about the success of homeopathy in healing patients experiencing various health concerns. The evaluation of the patients took place at the Bristol Homeopathic Hospital.  Patients were both children and adults. Some of the health concerns that these patients experienced were: eczema, asthma, inflammatory bowel diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, menopausal issues, arthritis, migraines, depression and chronic fatigue.

If you would like to read the article, I have included the link: http://www.homeopathy-soh.org/…homeopathy-in-practice/http://www.homeopathy-soh.org/research/evidence-base-for-homeopathy-2/homeopathy-in-practice/

It is good to have a study showing how wonderful homeopathy heals. There is a need for homeopathy.

homeopathic remedies

Homeopathy treats the person, not the disease. Two people who experience asthmatic symptoms would not need the same homeopathic remedy. Each person is given a homeopathic remedy that is similar to what they are experiencing. The Law of Similars or Like Cures Like is one of the main principles of homeopathy. General symptoms of asthma may be experienced by each person, such as difficulty breathing, but underneath and at the core, each person experiences the asthma uniquely to them.  By understanding each person’s suffering, the homeopath gives the homeopathic remedy that is most similar to that person, that stimulates the person’s own healing.

Homeopathic Healing for Chronic Conditions

There is a need for homeopathy.

There are many people of all ages, young children to older adults, men and women,  who experience ongoing, chronic conditions in which flare ups and episodes occur fairly often. They may be using some form of medication to help ease, to palliate, and to alleviate the symptoms. The medication may help them feel better, for a period of time, but there is no real healing. Homeopathy can be extremely helpful for these types of health conditions, promoting a deep healing.

Some of these health conditions are:

  • fibromyalgia
  • polymyalgia
  • arthritis
  • asthma and other breathing difficulties
  • skin eruptions, such as eczema, psoriasis, acne
  • digestive issues – irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, diarrhea, constipation, flatulence, burping
  • headaches
  • chronic colds
  • behavior issues – ADD/ADHD, restlessness, difficulty focusing
  • women’s issues – menstrual difficulties, menopause
  • anxiety and depression
  • insomnia, can’t fall asleep, sleepy
  • allergies, hayfever

The October 21st, 2013 post on The National Center for Homeopathy’s Facebook page writes specifically about the medication predinsone and auto-immune illnesses. What is written in this post can be applied to any form of chronic illness in which medication is used to palliate symptoms. I have included the post here for you to read.  (If you would like to see the NCH’s Facebook page yourself,  google “The National Center for Homeopathy, October 21st”. Click on NCH’s Facebook page, scroll down to October 21st.) The National Center for Homeopathy is a great resource for homeopathy: finding a homeopathic practitioner, learning more about homeopathy, and being updated about what is happening in the homeopathic community.

“Predinsone is a steroidal drug commonly proscribed for fibromyalgia, allergies, skin eruptions, arthritis, asthma and many other auto-immune disorders. Side effects are many, dangerous and have been well known since they (steroidal drugs) were first introduced in the 1950’s.

For those with chronic illnesses, these corticosteroids can only suppress symptoms and never actually cure these inflammatory problems because they never address the reasons WHY you are experiencing continual inflammation.

Homeopathy is a wonderfully safe and helpful alternative to steriodal drugs. If you suffer from chronic acute problems for which your physician wants to prescribe this class of drugs, consider talking to a well trained homeopath to learn of better and FAR safer homeopathic options.”

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

Homeopathy treats and heals the whole person. There is usually something specific that brings a person in to see the homeopath. The health concern could be one of those listed above. In the homeopathic consultation, this health concern is explored in depth – what it is like for the person, how it affects them, the sensation of it and more. Other areas, aspects, and symptoms of the person are also explored in depth.  For example, one aspect is how the person responds and reacts to stress. When you think about it, there are particular responses and reactions each of us experience that are unique to us when we are feeling stressed. At these times, this could be when the flare ups of the health concern are more prevalent. These responses and reactions could be difficulty sleeping, change in eating habits, particular thoughts and feelings, particular behaviors, and other physical responses and sensations.  All of this gives a picture of the state of the person.

It is the whole of the person that is being treated in homeopathy. Everything is connected. Each part is not in isolation from the rest; it is part of the whole. Homeopathy is treating the person, the whole person.

second woman feeling goodWhat is your suffering? Do you or a loved one have a chronic condition? Are you taking  medication for it and not feeling any better? Are you concerned about the side effects from the medication? It may be time to see how homeopathy can help you. Talk to a trained classical homeopath to find out more.

To add: it is always important to have your medical doctor manage and supervise any changes in the dosage of the medication, whether it is to decrease, increase or wean off of it.
