Why Would You Want a Holistic Healing With Homeopathy?

I had written my personal “why” in the post WHY DO I PRACTICE HOMEOPATHY? Now, I would like to write what your “why” may be.

(Simon Sinek writes about your “why” in his book “Start With Why”.)

*******

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting to feel better. Whether it is regarding a physical condition or an emotional      concern.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting a deep healing. Wanting a healing that goes to the root of where the               sunset-with-bluessymptoms that you are experiencing and bothering you are coming from.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting a healing, and not a palliating nor a band aid. Perhaps you are tired of taking medications that are not healing, and that may also be producing side effects that in some ways are worse than what the medication is being given for.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting to be heard. Wanting to be in a safe, protective environment, where whatever you say, show, or share is seen and heard. Being seen as the individual that you are.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Understanding that you are not a label. You are not the diagnosed “disease” name. You are your own unique being.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting all of your being to be better. The physical, the emotional, the mental, the spiritual. And knowing that all parts are connected, that you are not just one part. That you are a whole being.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Knowing that you are a being that has a wonderful ability to heal yourself – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And that to tap into that healing ability, you sometimes need help in the form of guidance and nurturing.

My Best Teachers Are My Patients

I have studied homeopathy for many years. I have had wonderful teachers. My best teachers, though, have been my patients. I have learned many, many things from them.

The biggest thing I have learned, is that I need to be flexible and open to the person who is sitting in front of me. Being open to hear, to see, and to witness their world, their sufferings, their sensitivities, their language, their expressions, and their process of healing.

I may have preconceived thoughts on how someone heals or what remedy is needed, but tree sunsetultimately it is this patient who is sitting in front of me who “tells” me how to proceed. They will always “tell” me what homeopathic remedy is needed, what potency (strength) to use, how often to take the homeopathic remedy, and when to change the homeopathic remedy to another one. As they are moving through their healing process, they are “telling” me what is needed.

For whatever health concern that brings someone to homeopathy, it is always seeing the wholeness and the individuality of the person. It is being flexible and open to how they experience what bothers them and how they heal.

If I can be of help to you in regards to your health, please contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be very happy to talk with you to see how homeopathy can be of help to you.

Dr. Rajan Sankaran Talks About Homeopathy

To continue with THERE IS A NEED FOR HOMEOPATHY, I have included a wonderful video made by Dr. Rajan Sankaran talking about homeopathy. He is a homeopath from Bombay, India and developed with his colleagues the Vital Sensation Method of homeopathy. The video is a little more than 8 minutes long and titled “Answer to Critic” . Here is the link:

Dr. Rajan Sankaran

 

These are some of the highlights for me in the video. I would suggest that you watch it for yourself.

  • In his practice, Dr. Sankaran’s patients are feeling better from homeopathic care.  He sees that what brought the person in to see him is better, as well as the person is feeling better in themselves.  This is what any homeopath looks for in the treatment.
  • Not to worry if homeopathy is logical or not. Simply watch the results.
  • Science is what actually happens. We don’t always understand it at the time. Later on, we may understand it.  If we don’t understand it, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Dr Sankaran gives the example of the apple falling from a tree/gravity.
  • Western medicine looks at the parts of a person being ill. And treats that part; treats it locally. This is similar to a car being worked on, replacing the part. The human body is not like that.
  • Each of us is a whole being. All the systems (parts) of the body are integrated and act as one being.  We are not parts. We need to treat the whole person.
  • Each person has their own individual specific state of disease. The homeopath perceives, reads, understands, observes each person’s own unique state. A homeopathic remedy or medicine is then selected that is like this person’s state. This produces a healing.
  • Stress is extremely individual. It is inside us, not outside of us. It is how each person perceives, experiences, responds and reacts to the situations in their life.

 ———————

This video further shows how homeopathy fills a need for people in their health care.  So many people experience chronic diseases, and are not doing better from the treatment they are receiving through western medicine. With homeopathy, the individual and their wholeness is being seen and treated. Then there can be a true healing.

Homeopathy – Healing Children

Homeopathy is wonderful for children’s health care.  Whether the child is experiencing ongoing health issues or acute colds and stomachaches, homeopathy is very helpful. In the healing with homeopathy, the immune system of the child is strengthened, so the health issue is not occurring as much and finally lessens all together.

Some ongoing health concerns that children experience:

  • Chronic ear infections
  • Asthma
  • Eczema or other skin eruptions
  • Allergies
  • Behavioral issues
  • ADD/ADHD – see post on ADD/ADHD
  • Autism spectrum
  • Stomachaches
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Difficulty sleeping and nightmares
  • Fears
  • Coughs
  • Headaches
  • Recurring colds, sore throats
  • Childhood disease – measles, chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough, German measles.

I would like to tell you about a patient of mine who I have seen for several years. When he first came to me, he was eight years old. When Joe (not his real name) was playing baseball, he would experience the need to cough when he stopped running. Joe said, “It is weird to have so much mucus in my throat. Coughing gets more mucus. I stop coughing and the mucus goes away.” His mother had taken Joe to the doctor who had suggested using an inhaler for the cough. His mother did not want to do that. She had used homeopathy before, and wanted to see how homeopathy could help Joe.

Joe talked about feeling scared at night when he heard noises in the house. “There could be burglars. If I knew what it was, it wouldn’t be so scary. You can get taken. I would have to scream and kick around. The person doing that would not like it.” His mother said that during the evening, Joe would frequently get out of bed to ask her about the sounds, as well as asking when his father was coming home, if his father was away on a business trip. His mother would give an explanation, but Joe would be back again asking about the noises. His mother described Joe as needing a lot of reassurance, and being very cautious. She said that he checks first with an adult, and then does whatever he was going to do. He doesn’t answer the phone because it might be someone he doesn’t know.

On car trips, Joe gets extremely carsick. He also is sensitive to the heat. His head and stomach hurt, he feels dizzy, and he throws up. He gets very upset when friends pretend they will hit him and then stop. “It is unfair and mean.” To him, it is a huge thing. He can’t let it go.

After taking the homeopathic remedy that was most similar to what he was experiencing, Joe was not coughing after running, and the sensation of mucus in his throat was gone. In fact, when visiting the doctor after the first dose of the remedy, the doctor could no longer hear anything in his lungs. Joe was falling asleep easier at night, and was not getting up at night to ask questions. He was no longer experiencing carsickness, and his sensitivity to the heat also decreased. And when Joe and his family were vacationing in Hawaii, every morning Joe went up to the the desk clerk and asked for the sports section of the newspaper.

Over the years, Joe has had doses of the homeopathic remedy when it was needed. Sometimes, his sensitivity to heat has come back, or other acute situations have occurred. This is when a dose was given. He has though no longer experienced the coughing and the sensation of mucus in his throat.  Homeopathy heals the whole person. With Joe, the mucus in the throat and the coughing were better, as well as other aspects of him, his emotional state and other physical symptoms.  Homeopathy heals the person.

Homeopathy – Treating the Person Not the Disease

What brings someone to homeopathy is often a specific health concern, a certain symptom or symptoms. For example, someone will say I have Fibromyalgia, can homeopathy help me?

As I said in my blog, THERE IS A NEED FOR HOMEOPATHY, homeopathy can help.

Homeopathy is treating the person, it is treating you, not the disease. The disease is a name, a label to a list of symptoms.  People ask me when they call or when I am talking with them, does homeopathy treat this or treat that? I say yes, it does help. Homeopathy is treating you who has this particular disease or symptom.

We are all unique individuals and experience the disease or symptoms differently from each other. Two people who “have” Fibromyalgia experience it uniquely to themselves. They each may have the common symptoms of Fibromyalgia, the ones listed under the label, the name, but each of them experience the fibromyagia symptoms differently. The how, the what of each person’s experience is what the homeopath wants to understand. This leads the homeopath to select the most similar homeopathic remedy to the person, to the person’s individual state. This is Like Cures Like or the Law of SImilars.  Homeopathy is addressing the healing of the whole person – the emotional, the mental, the physical, and the spiritual sides of the person.

There isn’t a homeopathic remedy for Fibromyalgia. There is, a homeopathic remedy for the individual person who is experiencing symptoms listed under the name of Fibromyalgia.  Please note, I used Fibromyalgia as an example. What I have written here applies to all disease names, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, urinary tract infections, migraines and more. Homeopathy is treating the person.

There is a Need for Homeopathy

There is a need for homeopathy. People need homeopathy. Every time someone calls me, for whatever health concern they have, I say to myself after talking with them, there really is a need for homeopathy.

There is a need because people are not feeling better. They may be on medications, which temporarily eases the symptoms, but they are not feeling better. There has been no healing. People are looking for other ways to help in their health care. Looking for a deeper healing, a gentler healing and no side effects. Homeopathy fits that description.

Need for homeopathy in acute conditions

A post on The National Center for Homeopathy’s (NCH) Facebook page writes about the need for homeopathy. Specifically, the topic is how strains of bacterial infections have become resistant to antibiotics due to their over use in medical care and in farm animals.  The post continues to say how homeopathy is very effective in the treatment of bacterial and viral infections, in fact, homeopathy has been effective with these kinds of infections long before antibiotics were developed. Dr. Margaret Chan, the Director-General of the World Health Organization is quoted in the post. She says, ” Things as common as strep throat or a child’s scratched knee could once again kill…”

To read the full post, google “The National Center for Homeopathy July 8”. The NCH’s Facebook page will be the first entry. Click on that and then scroll down to July 8th. (The National Center for Homeopathy is a great resource: for practitioners, for articles and for information.)

Since this post on the NCH Facebook page is on bacterial infections,  I have included a wonderful video on how homeopathy  helped a man who had developed a MRSA infection. The title of the video is “One Story of Homeopathy – healing a Super bug”. It was made by the New York City filmmaker Marc Wishengrad about his own treatment when he contracted the “Super Bug” or MRSA – Methicillin-resistant-Staphylococcus aureus. 

Most of the time, the bacterial infection is not as severe as the one that Marc Wishengrad experienced. Homeopathy is very helpful when there are infections and high fevers. About two months ago, I received a phone call from the mother of a patient of mine. She was calling me to say that her 13 year old son was experiencing a very painful sore throat. It had come on very suddenly and he had a fever. She suspected it was strep, and was planning on taking him to the doctor, and perhaps have a throat culture taken.  I suggested using the homeopathic remedy Belladonna.

The picture of Belladonna is a sore throat that comes on suddenly, violently and severely painful. There is a fever, a restlessness, and sometimes hallucinations are experienced. Although the person is burning hot, there is no thirst.  There can be a sensitivity to light, and it is often has right sided symptoms. I told the mom to give him several doses of Belladonna, and to call me the next day. When I spoke to her the fever had broken and his throat was no longer as sore. Belladonna helped a lot. It is understanding what the suffering is of the person, and then selecting a homeopathic remedy similar to that suffering.  This is Like cures Like or the Law of Similars.

The MRSA infection and the sore throat are both examples of acute conditions. Homeopathy is wonderful in the healing of acute conditions.

Need for homeopathy in chronic conditions

Most of the people who call me are calling about chronic conditions.  These can range from skin eruptions, asthma, digestive issues, menstrual problems, urinary tract infections, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, obstruction in the nose, constriction feeling in the throat, ongoing gum pain and more. Chronic conditions are ongoing. Sometimes they ease off and the person feels better, but then there is a flare up, again, which often happens when there is more stress in someone’s life. Medication may ease the symptoms, but there is never a healing. Homeopathy is extremely helpful in these kinds of chronic conditions.

So when you or a loved one have a need, whether an infection or an on going condition, it may be time to go to a homeopath for treatment.

Using Homeopathic Remedies

Our society has the medication paradigm that if you have a symptom, a pain, a health concern take a medication, take a pill. So it is very common for people who are new to homeopathy to think that instead of taking medication, I will take a homeopathic remedy. Have a headache, take a homeopathic remedy; difficulty sleeping, take a homeopathic remedy to help them sleep; having continual indigestion, take a homeopathic remedy. They are replacing the homeopathic remedy for a pill. I was of this thinking as well, when I first was learning about homeopathy 22 year ago. It is very common. But this is not homeopathy. This is using homeopathy in an allopathic way. The thinking is that instead of using western medication for their headache, sleeping difficulties, indigestion, they will use something “natural” instead.

                                                                homeopathic remedies

Homeopathic remedies are in pellet form.

In homeopathy, the symptoms are the guideposts and signs that help lead to the choose of the homeopathic remedy that addresses the whole person. Through understanding the suffering of the person, a homeopathic remedy is selected that is similar to that person. This is the Law of Similars or Like Cures Like. Homeopathy is a wholistic form of medicine – looking at the symptoms as part of the totality of the person.  Just giving a remedy for one symptom is not homeopathy.

If there is an ongoing chronic condition, such as headaches, insomnia, digestive difficulties, and you the reader are looking for a homeopathic remedy to help, I would suggest that you see a homeopath rather than treating yourself by using homeopathy in an allopathic way.  A homeopath will take the time to look/observe/understand the totality of what bothers you, including that chronic condition, and then select a homeopathic remedy that is similar to what you are suffering. The homeopathic remedy addresses the totality of you, and stimulates a deep healing.

I am always happy to talk to people, and to answer any questions they may have about homeopathy and their health.
