In this blog post I am sharing a quote.
The quote is from George Vithoulkas. He is one of the leading homeopathic practitioners and teachers of homeopathy. He has written many books, one of them is THE SCIENCE OF HOMEOPATHY. He says: “The long-term benefit of homeopathy to the patient is that it not only alleviates the presenting symptoms but it reestablishes internal order at the deepest levels and thereby provides a lasting cure.”
As I wrote in my last blog post, homeopathy sees symptoms as signs and guides. Symptoms lead the homeopath to selecting the homeopathic remedy or remedies that will be needed to help heal. Homeopathy addresses the symptoms, eases them, AND addresses the “root” of why the symptoms are there. The root is the “deepest levels” that Vithoulkas is writing about in the above quote.
A healing at the root or the deepest levels, is healing where the symptoms or the health issue comes from. I like to say it is healing the soil of the person.
Very often someone has a health issue. They take a medication. The symptoms are gone, for a period of time, a few hours, a few days, a few months. They may be taking a medication every day, even. There is no healing of the health issue. It is still there, covered over, suppressed. The root has not been addressed. Symptoms that affect deeper parts and functioning of the body may develop. For example, this can happen with skin eruptions, such as with eczema. Someone uses a topical cortisone cream. The itching is relieved. The eruptions of the eczema are gone. Then the person starts to develop breathing difficulties or asthma. We see this a lot in children. The symptoms of the eczema are gone, the deeper levels and the root of the eczema were not addressed. In fact, it has been suppressed.
Healing can take time. I know we all want that magic pill, to feel better right away, and for the symptoms to be gone, and not to come back. True, deep healing is a process and takes time.
Homeopathy To Heal
I love what I do. It is challenging, rewarding, frustrating, ever learning, and so needed.
I receive calls and inquiries from people asking if homeopathy can help a health issue they are experiencing. Recently, these calls and inquiries have been about anxiety/depression, constipation, uterine fibroid, separating from their mother, strep throat, colds, coughs, intestinal cramping, menstrual issues, cracks in the nailbeds and more. What people contact me for is very varied, ranging from physical to mental to emotional issues. Actually, everything is connected. We are a totality.
If you or a loved one has a health issue, which continues to bother you, I encourage you to contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15+ minute Get Acquainted Call. I work with people of all ages, babies through older adults, for many different health issues. I work virtually and in person, in and out of the San Diego, California area.
