More (2) Homeopathy Helping During Time Of 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, heart woodenwe 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. blocks spelling homeopathy

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.

Be well.

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.

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.

Repost: When A Child Runs A Fever

About a year ago, I wrote a blog post about children and fevers. I am reposting it here. We often feel frightened when a loved one is running a fever, and feel that we need to do something about it right away.

Fevers are part of our body’s innate healing process. There are homeopathic remedies that are helpful when someone has a fever.

Here is the post:

This weekend I was at a friend’s open house, and I was talking to a mom about her 2 year old little girl, Sarah, not her real name. Sarah was getting over being sick.  She had had a fever that ran more at night, than in the daytime. She had the fever for about 2 days, and it was pretty high. Sarah’s mom told me that this was the first time Sarah has been sick, and it was frightening to see her daughter run the fever and not feel well.

I commented to Sarah’s mom, that a fever is a good thing. It is the body’s way of healing. She agreed with me.

This is more of what I told Sarah’s mom:

Children often run higher fevers than adults do. With children, fevers, and other symptoms, come on quickly and suddenly, and seem to be very extreme; and, the fevers go away quickly and suddenly as well. This suddenness and extreme symptoms teddy-242868_960_720are a reflection of a STRONG vital force. It is a good sign. It is showing health. The body is doing what is does so well. The person doesn’t necessarily feel so good, but a fever is a good sign of health.

In comparison, someone who does not have a strong vital force, such as an older person or someone who has an ongoing chronic condition, may not run a fever at all, run a low fever, or run a fever on and off. And the illness may just drag on.

I added, that it is very common for children to run a fever at night, be fine the next day, playing and being active, and then run the fever again at night. Sarah’s mom said that is what had happened with Sarah, for two days.

I could tell that Sarah’s mom felt better hearing this. She seemed more relaxed, knowing that Sarah is healthy, and her body is  doing what a healthy body does.

*******

Sometimes, a person needs some help in their healing process. Homeopathy can be very helpful when someone is running a fever, has the flu, or has a cold. And if you are concerned when you or a loved one is running a fever, it is always good to check with your physician.

If I can be of any help, please contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I do see patients outside the San Diego area through the use of Skype, Whatsapp and Facetime.
