Recurring Health Concerns

This past week, I had a call from a father about his 3 month old baby daughter. He has had experience with homeopathy before having taken his older child to see a homeopath. He told me that his little baby daughter was not feeling well. She had had a cold several weeks ago, was better, but now she was not feeling well again. She wasn’t running a fever, and he didn’t think that she was in pain. He said she was irritable.

I was thinking that maybe her irritability was an expression of some sort of pain or discomfort. Obviously, she wasn’t feeling well. Babies and small children don’t tell us through words how they are feeling, but through sounds, behaviors, actions, movements, changes in moods and temperaments. This baby was expressing something through her irritability.

Unfortunately, the father cancelled the appointment he had made with me for his daughter. He told me that they had taken her to see a doctor, who said that it was a cold. The father decided to not pursue homeopathic care, at this time. I said, if the cold continues, or if it returns, it would be a good idea to bring your daughter in for homeopathic care, since she already has been experiencing a recurrence of this, and we don’t want that to continue.

People I Speak To

gumby sickWhen I talk to people either in person or on the phone, they tell me about their particular health concern. I hear all sorts of things, such as the person is experiencing pains and discomforts in their feet. They have an extremely itchy rash or eczema eruption. Breathing is difficult for them. The get very anxious in some situations. There are feelings of sadness or depression. They don’t sleep well. During their menstrual cycle certain symptoms come up. They are extremely fearful and/or have nightmares. They have ongoing headaches, stomachaches, or digestive issues. I hear all sorts of things. The person is not feeling well, and they want to feel better.

Recurring Health Concern

Their health concern is often something that has been going on for a awhile, or it had gone away and now it is recurring again. They have periodic flare ups of it. They are not feeling better from the type of treatment they are using for their health concern, and they want to feel better.

In a previous post, I wrote about a young boy who had recurring congestion, fevers and ear infections. The boy had taken several courses of antibiotics. Each time, he would be better for a month or so, and then the whole situation would happen again. The homeopathic remedy that fit him, that was similar to what he was experiencing, helped him to heal this recurrence of the ear infections, the fevers, and the congestion. He has done well.

Often when there is a recurring health concern, the treatment being used helps to ease and to palliate when there is an outbreak or flare up. This treatment helps the person feel better for the time being, but doesn’t heal the health concern. The person needs to continue taking the medication to feel better, often accepting that these recurrences will happen again, and again.

Does this sound like you?

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy heals at the root cause of what is bothering the person. It is a deep healing. As the person heals, the recurrences and flare ups become less and less, till they no longer happen at all. It is a healing. With the young boy I wrote of, I had thought there might be a recurrence of the ear infection as he was healing, but there wasn’t. The cycle was broken. With an adult, the stopping of the cycle may take longer to happen than with this young boy, since the adult has had this health concern for a longer period of time. But the cycle does end.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help a recurring health concern that you have. Either contact me here, through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Children Benefit So Well From Homeopathic Care

This post is a continuation of the blog post on “what is bothering your child“. I want to tell you a bit more on how a child shows and talks about what bothers them. And then how they were better. There is more to each of these children’s cases than I have written here.

What Children Show And Say What Bothers Them

  • One little girl had difficulty staying still. Actually while she was in my consultation room, she was all over the room, sitting behind me, sitting under the desk, moving all around the room, crawling almost. This said a lot about her.
  • One girl had difficulty sleeping and had nightmares. These nightmares would keep her awake at night, or woke her up early in the morning. She would talk about.the nightmares, giving a lot of detail. She didn’t feel rested during the day.
  • One boy had asthmatic and breathing difficulties. He talked about lining up his toys very precisely and placed in specific places on a table next to his bed.
  • One girl had frequent stomach aches.
  • One little boy had been on several courses of antibiotics for ear infections and low grade fevers. He was very sensitive to noise/sounds – loud noises were frightening to him, and he was wonderful at imitating noises while he played.
  • One little boy, was labelled as “being defiant and having oppositional behavior”. (I really don’t like labels.) This type of behavior was at home and in school. He also ground his teeth a lot.
  • One little boy had eczema on his face that was so itchy.
  • One teenage boy was quite anxious, almost having anxiety attacks. He would think that people were looking at him all the time. He liked to come and talk to me. I think it was a place where someone heard him.
  • One teenage boy had persistent nose bleeds.
  • One teenage girl had difficulty sleeping  – falling asleep and staying asleep. This was worse during her examination times at school.
  • One boy would hear noises at night and would get up and ask his mother, are there burglars in the house?

And How They Benefited From Homeopathic Care

Each child did well. Each child was given the homeopathic remedy that fit them, and fit what was bothering them. The homeopathic remedy stimulated their own healing process.

The child who had difficulty sleeping, was sleeping better and having less or no nightmares. The child who was moving around in my office, was able to stay more focused on activities, and not be so distracted at the times that she needed to be focused. The child who had breathing children's hands and sundifficulties, did not have the attacks as often. The child who had stomach aches, experienced them less. There was no longer a need for antibiotics for the child that had the low grade fevers and congestion. The eczema cleared up on the child’s face, and he no longer experienced itching. The pre-teen that felt anxious a lot, was able to be in situations and feel more at ease with the situation and himself. The nosebleeds subsided for the boy. The “oppositional” behavior in the boy, become less so, and his interactions with his family and people at school were easier. The boy who asked questions at night was able to go to bed, fall asleep, and feel safe. And the teen age girl, who is now a graduate school student, is able to go through the stressful exam times with more ease.

Healing With Homeopathy

How would it be if your child was feeling better with whatever was bothering them? They would be happier. They could be the child they are. And you would be feeling better too. The whole family would be feeling better.

There may be other health concerns that your child may be experiencing than what I have mentioned in this blog post. I would be happy to talk with you about your child.

For A child, And Their Parents, Who Is Using Homeopathic Remedies

children in a lineRecently a mom of a patient of mine wanted to know if there was anything written that she could find online or published that talks to children about homeopathy. I don’t know of anything that has been written. I thought this is wonderful idea, and I need to do it. I am writing this post to the child, or to the parents of the child, so that you can read it to your child.

The Homeopathic Remedy

You may or may not have taken many medications over the years. If you did they were pills. And perhaps you don’t want to take them anymore. The homeopathic remedy is in pellet form and they do look like pills, little white ones, but they aren’t the same as the pills that you have taken in the past.

The original form of the homeopathic remedy is liquid. When the homeopathic remedy is made at a homeopathic pharmacy, the vial or the small bottle is first filled with white sugar lactose pellets. The pellets come in different sizes and shapes. Then the liquid homeopathic remedy that is being used is poured into and onto these pellets. (I have seen this preparation at the Heiios Pharmacy in London.) The pellets absorb the liquid.

How To Take The Homeopathic Remedy

When you take the homeopathic remedy, the pellets are tipped into the lid of the vial, and then tipped into your mouth. We   homeopathy2say let them dissolve, don’t chew them. What you are tasting as the pellets are dissolving in your mouth is the sweetness of the pellets. Remember the pellets are sugar lactose, that is what you are tasting. You don’t taste the homeopathic remedy because there is no taste to the homeopathic remedy. You may have a taste of alcohol. This is because the substance that the homeopathic remedy is made from has been diluted in water and alcohol. Alcohol is a preservative, letting the homeopathic remedy last for a long period of time.

If you don’t want to take the pellets and have them dissolve in your mouth, you can dissolve 3 – 4 pellets in 4 ounces of spring or filtered water in a glass. Stir. Then take a teaspoonful of the homeopathic remedy. That is one dose. When the homeopathic remedy is diluted, you are bringing the homeopathic remedy back to its original form – liquid.

You most likely will not be taking the homeopathic remedy every day like you do with the medication you were taking before. Your parents will have been given instructions on how and when to give you the homeopathic remedy.

What Happens When You See A Homeopath

When you have met with a homeopath, such as myself, the homeopath has listened to you, has observed you, wants to know what bothers you, and what that is like for you. You may have been asked about what kinds of things you like to do, or fears you have, or dreams you have, or even what types of foods you have a strong craving for (you love) or have an aversion to (you hate). From all of this the homeopath chooses a homeopathic remedy that fits you. For example. some other child could have come in to see the homeopath and also have difficulty breathing at times. This child would need a different homeopathic remedy than you, because really they are experiencing the difficulty of breathing differently from the way you are experiencing it. The homeopathic remedy given to you, fits you.

kids-know-whats-good-for-them1How You Will Feel From Taking The Homeopathic Remedy

The homeopathic remedy will not do anything to you, such as making you clear your throat, or making you drowsy or sleepy or kind of sluggish, or give you tics or movements that you can’t control or make it that you aren’t hungry. These kinds of things may have happened when you took medications, the pills that you had taken. The homeopathic remedy is matching you. It is helping you heal yourself.

Whatever brought you in to see the homeopath will be better. Such as breathing easier. Not getting so frightened at things. Sleeping better at night. Not having nightmares. Not having a persistent, ongoing cough. Not feeling so angry at times. Not having the urge to bite or to hit or to kick someone. Not having the itching rash on your body. You are just feeling better.

I hope this has helped to know more about homeopathy.

*******

I will continue writing these blog posts addressing concerns that children may have. If you have a question please feel free to contact me through this blog or though my website www.homeopathytoheal.com   And if you know of anyone who would like to have homeopathic treatment and not be taking “pills” anymore, please have them contact me.

The Flu – Healing With Homeopathy

I posted this blog post in January 2013. It is the flu season now, and I thought this information would be good for you all to have this year.

There are homeopathic remedies that are helpful for when one feels ill from the flu. Often in a flu season, there are 2 – 3 specific homeopathic remedies that are good for that particular strain of flu. During the 1918-1919 influenza epidemic in the USA, homeopathic physicians recorded that those patients treated with homeopathy had a lower mortality rate than those treated with conventional medicine.

To determine which remedy fits best, it is good to observe and to note how the ill person is feeling (you could be the ill person), even taking note of changes in behaviors and emotional moods. Some of the observations are:

  • tiredness/fatigue
  • heavy feeling
  • chilly/hot
  • aches and pains
  • gradual or sudden onset of symptoms
  • fever
  • cough
  • runny nose                                                                                                                                                                       influenza
  • headaches
  • stomach issues
  • thirst – a lot, a little, for what temperature
  • moving – makes one better or worse
  • wanting others around or wants to be alone
  • clingy
  • irritable
  • restless
  • what makes one better/worse
  • time of day when better/worse

Homeopathic Remedies

Here is a list of homeopathic remedies that are useful for the flu. As I wrote above, observe yourself or the ill person,  and then match with the description below. One of the main principles of homeopathy is The Law of Similars, which means Like Cures Like.  I suggest writing down your observations first. The ill person doesn’t have to experience all the symptoms that are listed in the description. Use the 30C potency of the chosen remedy.

You may start with one remedy, and then change to another as the healing progresses.  I had one case years ago of a woman in her 30’s. She started with the remedy Pulsatilla – she didn’t want to be alone and wanted to be with everyone else in the living room. Then she wanted to be in a back bedroom all by herself.  At that time, she needed the homeopathic remedy Bryonia.

ACONITE – symptoms come on suddenly and violently. The person is fearful, anxious and restless. May look anxious and flushed becoming pale when sitting up. Thirst for cold drinks. Head feels heavy. A dry barking cough. Worse before midnight. May feel that they will die.

ARSENICUM ALBUM – aching. Thirst for sips of warm or cold drinks. Burning pains here and there. Extreme weakness and debilitated, yet restless, anxious, fearful and irritable. Extremely chilly, but will want the window open. Wants to be with a friend to calm their fears. Nightly aggravation, after midnight. Obsessed with order, tidiness. Fastidious.

BAPTISIA – sore muscles. Putrid discharges. Prostration. Bed feels too hard, because of the soreness of the body. Confusion. Sensation that the body parts are separated. Face appears dusky and dull.

BRYONIA – worse from any movement. Irritable, doesn’t want people around. Wants to be alone. Constipated. Thirst for large amounts of cold water, although the mouth and lips are dry. Worse in a warm room. Better in cool air. Headaches worse from motion, walking or moving eyes.  Worse from any kind of motion; holds body parts still. Symptoms come on gradually. May have a painful cough and pain in the throat and chest. Pain is described as bursting or stitching.

BELLADONNA – sudden onset of high fever with burning, dry hot body (burning to touch) and icy cold feet. Violent symptoms. Face is flushed. Usually not thirsty, nor sweaty. May have intense fever terrors, to the point that the child does not recognize his parents. Worse in the afternoon.

EUPATORIUM PERFOLIATUM – deep soreness, aching and bruising feeling in the bones, as if the bones will break. Even the eyeballs are sore. May feel totally “wiped out”, lethargic, and unable to exert the least effort. Feels chilled, especially between 7 – 9 am. Great thirst for cold water, especially when chill comes on. Sweat makes all the symptoms better except the headache. Runny nose, sneezing and red eyes prior to body aches.

FERRUM PHOSPHORICUM – often used at the beginning of mild fevers, head colds and chest infections, before distinctive symptoms are shown that would lead to another remedy. Symptoms come on gradually. Red cheeks. Moderate thirst. Dull and sluggish.

GELSENIUM – slow onset, dullness, weakness, heaviness and aching. Listless and apathetic. Face is dull, heavy, flushed with heavy eyelids. Chills running up the spine. Wants to be left alone. Headache beginning in the back of the head or neck and extending upward. Mouth and lips are very dry, yet not thirsty. Lies quietly.

NUX VOMICA – irritability and sensitivity to light, odors and noise. Angry, impatient, easily offended. Chilly. Wants to be wrapped warmly. Constipated, with ineffectual urging.

PHOSPHORUS – often the person doesn’t show the severity of the illness. A child may have a temperature of 104, yet be playing happily. Colds go down to the chest, accompanied by a dry tight cough. Feels very weak. Thirsty for refreshing ice cold drinks, but may vomit as soon as water is warmed in the stomach. Laryngitis with or without pain. May lose voice completely.

PULSATILLA – person may be tearful and emotional. Wants company and desires sympathy. Usually has no thirst. Desire for the open air. Discharges are thick.

RHUS TOX – restless. Aches and pains while lying still. Worse when first starting to move, better with continuous motion. Chilly. Worse in cold and damp air. Thirsty for sips of water. Dry mouth, dry sore throat.

Listen to yourself and your body. It is also good to get as much rest as you can, and to drink fluids. If you feel like eating, eat, if you don’t feel like eating, don’t.

If I can be of any help, please contact me.

Wishing you all good health.

My Ear Hurts – Homeopathy Heals

An earache or ear infection can be very painful. Some children have a few, and some children have ongoing ones, with antibiotic, after antibiotic, that doesn’t help at all.  And the overuse of antibiotics is now thought of as being a possible cause of a child developing a peanut allergy. See my blog post OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS MAY BE A CAUSE OF PEANUT ALLERGIES.

baby ear acheI want to let people know that there are other choices to help an earache or ear infection other than antibiotics. Homeopathy is very helpful.  As with anything, each person experiences an earache unique to them.  I have listed a few homeopathic remedies below that are helpful for earaches. When you read the description, you can see how different each remedy is.  The side of the earache? How it came on? Thirst? Emotional state? Cold or warm?  What makes them better? Worse?

Homeopathic Remedies

Observe the person who has the earache or ear infection, and match it to the remedy that is similar.

Aconite – comes on after being exposed to cold/dry wind or shock. Sudden onset. May come on after a fright. Sensitive to noise. External ear is red. Pain is sharp and severe. Thirsty for cold drinks. Restless, anxious, fearful, screaming with pain. Worse at night, from noise and pressure. Better in fresh air, from rest, and hot applications. May also have a high fever and/or swollen glands.

When one of my sons was a baby, he developed a fever. His ear may have been hurting as well. A couple of days before this, there had been an extremely loud clap of thunder during the night. (We very rarely have thunder in the San Diego area.) At the time, he had started to cry from the loud noise, and seemed very, very frightened. Remembering his response to the thunder several days before, I gave him the remedy Aconite. This homeopathic remedy helped him a lot.

Belladonna – comes on from exposure to cold/dry wind, or getting the head wet. Sudden onset. Right sided. Ear is bright red. Eardrum is red and bulging. Hears noises in the ear. Pain is severe, stitching, sharp, throbbing. Pain comes on suddenly. Pain may extend to neck. Tongue is “strawberry” in color. Pupils are dilated. Thirst less. Head is hot, and the extremities are cold. Restless. Delirious. Confused. Screams with the pain, even when sleeping.

Calcarea carbonica – may come on from getting wet. Putrid discharges. Hearing may be impaired. Throbbing pain. Person is slow, sweaty, sour and sluggish. Worse from cold and exertion. Better with rest and heat. Glands may be swollen. May be stubborn and obstinate. Constipated.

Chamomilla – may come while teething or getting wet. One cheek is red and hot, and the other is pale and cool. Pains are throbbing, sharp like a sudden attack. Hot and thirsty. Irritable, capricious, wants things now and then throws them away when given. Wants to be carried. Pains are unbearable. Worse at night, from cold air. Better from cold applications. May have a fever.

Hepar sulph – from cold or cold winds. Moves from left to right. Offensive discharges.  Hearing is impaired. Pain is sharp, stitching, and radiates to jaw or throat. Person is sweaty and chilly. Irritable, angry, and abusive. Better with hot drinks, warmth, head or ear wrapped up, hot applications. Often accompanied by a sore throat or swollen glands.

Pulsatilla – after getting chilled, from emotional stress, measles or common cold. Discharge is thick, bland and yellow/green. Ear is red and feels blocked. Pains are pulsating, darting, tearing, and pressing. Moods are changeable. Thirst less. Chilly. Weepy, clingy, irritable, whinny, and affectionate. Worse at night and from heat. Better from cold, crying, gentle motion, and fresh air. Hearing is impaired. Hears roaring of pulse in ear. Itching in ear.

Silica – may come on after getting chilled, change of weather to cold and dry, from getting feet wet and from vaccination. Has blocked sensation in ear. Itching in ear. Discharge is smelly, thick and bloody. Pain is tearing, pressing outward. Sweaty and chilly. Timid, anxious and worn out. Worse from cold, cold drafts and wind, and open air. Better from warmth, wrapping, hot applications and humidity. Hearing is impaired.

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

If the earache continues or if there are ongoing earaches, it would be beneficial to see a homeopath. The homeopathic remedies I listed here are only a few of many that can help and heal in this situation. When seeing a homeopath, they will find out more about the person, and how the earache is for them. Then the homeopathic remedy that is the most similar to the person will be given.  A good healing will come from this.

I would be happy to talk further about how homeopathy can be of help for earaches and ear infections. Either leave a comment below or contact me through my website, http://www.homeopathytoheal.com

WHAT IS YOUR GUT SAYING? – Homeopathy Heals Symptoms of the Gut

Listen to your gut. What does your gut say?

Often we make statements like: What does my intuition say? How do I really feel about this? Is this right or wrong for me? Is it a good feeling or a bad feeling? What is the Universe saying to me? What does my gut say?

What does your gut say? When it is not functioning well.

We hear a lot about the gut. We hear about children and adults having food allergies. We hear about people having sensitivities to certain foods such as gluten, dairy and peanuts. We hear about leaky gut syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other digestive issues.  And we hear about all sorts of diets to help with our gut.

For people who have gut and digestive issues, this is often their area of sensitivity. This is where they manifest symptoms when they are feeling stressed, upset, nervous, anxious, depressed, and emotional. Some of the symptoms experienced are vomiting, diarrhea, breathing difficulties with food allergies, skin eruptions, anxiousness, burping, passing gas, acid reflux, bad breath, stomach pains, cramping, loss of appetite, eating disorders and more. These symptoms can be very annoying, disruptive, fatiguing, tiring in that here we go again, restrictive, embarrassing, painful, controlling, and maybe even life threatening. They take over a person’s life.

 gut 2GUT WRENCHING

So what is the gut saying? It is saying there is something that is not right. There is an imbalance, a disturbance, and it is being shown through these gut symptoms.

Homeopathy can be very helpful for these kinds of gut issues.  The homeopath listens, observes, and uncovers what this imbalance and disturbance is for the individual person, along with hearing more about the gut symptoms. With an understanding of all of this information, the homeopath then selects a homeopathic remedy that is similar to the person in their totality.  It is remedy for the person, not for the symptoms. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, and with this healing the disturbance quiets down, and the gut symptoms lessen, till they are no longer a problem.

Homeopathy was very helpful for a woman who had bouts of diarrhea almost daily. She never quite knew when they would occur. She would plan her outings based on having access to a bathroom, because when she needed a bathroom, she needed it fast and NOW. She knew where all the bathrooms were located wherever she went. After taking the homeopathic remedy that was similar to her, (One of the the main principles of homeopathy is the Law of Similars or Like Cures Like) the bouts of diarrhea become less and less. She could go out, and not have to prepare and know where the bathrooms were located. She also felt much better in herself, able to handle things that happened in her life in a much more constructive way. The remedy was helping in healing her whole being.

What is your gut saying?

If you or someone you love is having on going gut and digestive issues, and have used other medical therapies and/or medications, perhaps it is time to see how homeopathy can be healing for you.  What I have written here, applies to both children and adults.

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

I see that my blog posts are read all over the world. Please, know that I work with people through Skype, if they are not local to the area where I live which is San Diego, California. With any patient, I need to be able to see them and see their expressions, their hands gestures, and their expression of energy.

Making of Homeopathic Medicines at Helios Pharmacy

Helios Pharmacy is one of the best homeopathic pharmacies. I order from them all the time.

This video shows how the plant and mineral homeopathic medicines are made. Helios uses the methods of making homeopathic medicines that Samuel Hahnemann wrote about in THE ORGANON.
