More 5 – Don’t Forget To Take Care Of Yourself

The last several posts, I had written about how homeopathy can be helpful during the Coronavirus, and it can be.

Even though the virus is upmost in our minds and in our lives, there may be other concerns that have come up that we need to take care of. They could be on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. The concerns could be affecting our bodies (an old or new health issue); our environment and home (repairs, needing to move); our moods (how we are feeling and responding/reacting to what is going on); our finances (employment, how to do business, money); our relationships (feeling alone and isolated, having family members around us all the time); the world (how much control do I have, how is the government handling things or not handling things); and our life (what can I do, how can I be, are there things I can change?).

It is a lot.

Health And Life Issues

These are some of the health and life issues I have been hearing about from patients and people calling me for homeopathic care. You can see that they are a range of concerns.

  • Difficulty with teeth coming in.
  • Defiant behavior.
  • Earache, that is seasonal, but experiencing it early. With a hearing loss.
  • Allergies.
  • Digestive issues – pain, diarrhea. Colitis.
  • Stressed, anxious, overwhelmed. Taking care of house, children and school work. Doing a lot of roles.
  • Cancer.
  • Fevers.
  • Coughs.
  • Elderly parent in a facility. Not able to see them.
  • Reaction to other treatment or medications.
  • Feelings of isolation, depression, and loneliness.
  • Death of a family member or a close friend.
  • Changed plans.
  • Different working environments and schedules.
  • Concerns about health and treatments.
  • Concerns about their business. Money.
  • Coronavirus.

Creativity

I mentioned creativity in an early post I wrote.

Through this pandemic, people have found ways to do business, to continue their business. Found ways to connect with people. Found ways of using their talents, skills and abilities. Have started new ventures. Have started to learn a new skill or honed one they already have. This creativity reflects our resiliency as people.

When I first wrote this blog, it was before the protests and looting that occurred over the past week. This has added more to our levels of stress, anxiety, sadness, anger, and . I know for me, I feel more unsettled and I feel the heaviness even more so. What helps me is writing this blog, and telling people about homeopathy. Also painting. Right now, I am painting on scraps of wood and leaving them outside in my front yard. Giving some light and color to the world, and to me.

Taking Care Of You

Put you back on the list. Take care of yourself. Whether to get a massage, medical treatment, a haircut, a nice meal, homeopathy, a walk, seeing a friend, seeing a counselor, doing a dance. A little thing/action can have a big effect.

The analogy that we know so well, of being on an airplane and the air mask drops down, applies to us now. Put the mask on you first, before you put it on the person siting next to you, which could be your child. Take care of you.

Homeopathy To Heal

If I can be of help, homeopathically, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you. And read my other posts I wrote about homeopathy and the coronavirus.

Be well.

More 3 – Coronavirus And Homeopathy – We Are Doing Our Best

I think we are all doing the best we can in these times.

For many, it is difficult  – whether staying inside and home; being alone; being with family and it is difficult; not seeing friends or loved ones: not working; having children home: changes in schedules; worried about finances; worried about getting sick; shopping; going out or not going out; missing an event or trip that was planned; feeling angry about what is going on; grieving; boredom and more.

People are being creative and resourceful – painting, singing, dancing, creating masks, cooking and baking, doing/offering webinars, finding new ways to do their business, learning, connecting with people in new ways, helping other people out with their shopping, planting a garden and ….

And there are restful moments, times that we feeling hope, connection, love, and togetherness.

I know for me, at times, I feel sad, feel angry, feel a dampening over me, as if there is a heaviness all over me. I feel anxious, restless, lonely, thankful, inspired and grateful. I am watching a lot of webinars and learning. I am painting. I am weeding. Doing yoga. Walking. Binging on programs. Connecting with friends. Putting homeopathy out there. painted fencce heart

We are all in this together. Someone wrote that we are in the same storm, but in different boats. We are in a similar experience, but may have different responses and reactions to what is going on from other people.

We are doing our best. We are doing the best we can.

And to be kind to ourselves.

HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy can be helpful for all the stages of this pandemic.

  • The stages of actually being sick – from the first signs of not feeling well, to later signs/symptoms and in between.
  • The stages of not actually being sick with the virus. But still not feeling well. All of what is triggered in us.
  • The stages of convalescence. Whether one was sick or one was not sick with the virus, we all have been affected by this. There may be lingering states, symptoms, fears, and sensitivities after this time has passed.  What will be afterwards?

Homeopathy is helpful for all of this.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

I am continuing to see patients in the San Diego area and outside of the area for the coronavirus and any other health concern. I am seeing people via Skype, WhatsApp, Facetime and phone. You can contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

More – The Coronavirus And Homeopathy

In my last post, I had told you that I have been viewing webinars given by homeopaths from all over the world,  talking about what homeopathic remedies would be healing for this pandemic.  Homeopathic remedies are starting to emerge.

The remedies that homeopaths are seeing that are helpful for this epidemic are coming from many cases of patients who have the virus. A common theme/thread between these cases starts to emerge, and leading to the homeopathic remedies. It is almost as if many people make up one case, one individul.  And interestingly, where you are living in the world, also can determine which homeopathic remedies are healing for this pandemic.

ACONITE

The homeopathic remedy Aconitum Napellus – Aconite – is being suggested by many homeopaths to use when you are experiencing first signs of not feeling well, whether it is a fever, a scratchy throat, achiness, a little cough, a runny nose etc. The person might also feel homeopathy pelletsquite anxious, panicky, fearful,  and may be fearing that they may die.  (A lot of us are feeling panicky.)

By using Aconite, it may stave off the virus developing further, or make the symptoms less severe. Other homeopathic remedies may be useful after using Aconite. It is good then to see a homeopath.

My suggestion is to use Aconite 30C. You probably can purchase it at your local health food stores, or Whole Foods type of stores.  I know someone who ordered it from Amazon.

People usually take remedies dry, just taking the pellets, but in acute/first aid situations I have them dissolve the remedy. This makes it that you don’t need to use so many pellets. When initially made the homeopathic remedies are a liquid, so when you dissolve the remedy you are bringing it back to its original form.

Instructions:

  • Dissolve two pellets in 4 ounces of filtered/spring type water.  I am saying to use just two pellets, so that you have the remedy for later use for yourself or for other people.  If you use more pellets you are not increasing the dosage.
  • One teaspoonful is one dose. Before taking the dose, stir the water 1 – 3 times.  Stirring slightly increases the potency/strength of the remedy.
  • You may want to take several doses in a day – such as 4 for a couple of days. If you start to feel better, stop taking the remedy. You may need to start taking it again in a few days, if some of the symptoms come back. That is part of the healing.
  • The water is good for 24 hours, and then you need to throw it out, and start new. Washing every thing in hot water.
  • This one glass of dissolved Aconite could be used for the whole household. Homeopathy is helpful for all ages, babies through older adults. Each person having their own teaspoon and washing it before using it again. By sharing the dissolved remedy, you are  making sure you have enough of the remedy.  And if it is a lot of people, you may want to use 6 – 8 ounces of water

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

It is good to also follow the prodigals that we are hearing about, and to see your physician if needed.

Homeopathy is a wonderful healing resource. I am seeing patients during this time, local to and outside of the San Diego area. I can work via phone, WhatsApp, Facetime or Skype. If I can be of help to you or your family, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com

I wish you all well.

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.

Previous Posts

I am giving links to previous posts I have written about coughs and flus. In these posts, I list some homeopathic remedies that are helpful.

Be Kind To Yourself

Be kind and loving to yourself. Listen to what you need. If you are feeling panicky and anxious, accept it, and do things to help yourself with it. Dopaper music hearts activities that you enjoy.  This time could actually be a very restful, calming and loving time.

Homeopathy To Heal

If I can be of help to you or a loved one homeopathically, in regards to what is happening now, or for other health concerns, please contact me either through this blog or my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I work via Facetime and WhatsApp in addition to in-person appointments.

Why Do People Come To Homeopathy?

Why do people come to homeopathy?

Who comes for homeopathic treatment?

I always say, I see people for all sorts of health concerns, and see people of all ages.

The number one reason someone comes for homeopathic care is that they have a health homeopathy pelletsconcern that is bothering them. They are and have done other treatments, western medicine included. They are not doing better, and they want to feel better.

Sometimes they are people who are doing holistic forms of medicine. Some people are new to holistic medicine. Most are new to homeopathy.

And then there is what is bothering them. I think this is what most people relate to when seeking care. They will ask, have you helped others with _______________?  My answer is sometimes yes, and sometimes no, and continue to say that homeopathy treats the person. It is how the person experiences what bothers them.

Homeopathy looks at the individual. Two people may come in with the same diagnosis or similar health concern, and most likely each would need a homeopathic remedy that fits and addresses them. The suggested homeopathic remedy may not be the same one for each of these two people.

Here are some of the health concerns people have called me about recently, and why they have come to homeopathy.

  • Difficulty breathing
  • PANDA’s – anxiety, fatigue, ongoing infections, OCD
  • Adult acne – ongoing chronic acne
  • Eczema – in an adult, eczema in a child
  • Digestive issues
  • Thrush
  • Cysts
  • Lyme’s Disease
  • Adult – ADHD
  • Grief
  • Coughs/Colds
  • Menopausal issues
  • Urinary tract issues
  • Baby in breech position
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Autistic spectrum

CLASSES

To educate people on how homeopathy can be helpful and be part of their health care, I often hold classes. The information in the classes are on homeopathy in general, and a specific topic of care for self treatment

I feel excited about two classes I am offering. Below is the information of the two classes with the link to register through the San Diego Breastfeeding Center.

Homeopathy, Helping A Baby In Breech Position

This is a happy story.

Along with doing other forms of medicine, homeopathy was helpful in turning a baby that was in a breech position, and resulting in a normal, vaginal delivery.

A Happy Story

A woman, who I had met in one of my classes, was pregnant with her second child. Her first child had been in breech position, and did not turn before delivery. A c-section was done. With this present pregnancy, the mother did not want to have another c-section, for many reasons.

The mother contacted me about a month after the class, and said that this baby was in breech infantposition. She wanted to do homeopathy to help. She had done some reading, and mentioned the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla, which often can be helpful when a baby is in breech position.

I suggested she come in for an appointment, and let’s see if Pulsatilla fits her (is similar to her), or possibly another homeopathic remedy would be better. She was very much in a Pulsatilla state.  And we did use Pulsatilla. The baby did not turn.

Several weeks after this, she had scheduled an appointment with her doctor to do a hands on manipulation to help turn the baby. The manipulation was with one hand on the head of the baby, and another hand on the bottom. There is a 50% chance that the baby will turn. The mother told me she had taken Arnica montana to help if she experienced any bruising or soreness from when the baby turned inside of her.

The baby turned after the first manipulation, (I think they were going to do 3, and then wait a week and try again.) and was in the correct downward facing position. I found out later that the baby stayed in this position, and did not turn back. The birth was a vaginal delivery and was quick. Both mother and baby were, and are doing well.

I had said to the mother when we met for the appointment that using Pulsatilla would be helpful for the birth, even if the baby did not turn. The baby did turn though. Even though the baby did not turn when we had used the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla, I think it helped in turning the baby when the doctor did the manipulation. And it also helped in keeping the baby in the downward position, ready for birth.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy can very much be part of a mother’s and baby’s care during pregnancy, delivery and post-partum. I suggest seeing a homeopathic practitioner, a homeopath, and not to self treat. With this mother, there was a specific way the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla was used, in terms of how often, and the potency or strength of the homeopathic remedy. As with any care that we receive, it is important to have the practitioner manage the case, and to do follow up appointments with the practitioner. This includes when seeing your homeopath.

Homeopathy Class

I am offering the class again – HOMEOPATHY – A NATURAL HEALING FOR BABY AND MOTHER on January 11th, 2020 at the San Diego Breastfeeding Center, located in La Mesa, Ca.  Here is the link to read the description of the class, and to register. https://www.sdbfc.com/workshops    (And I will offering the class on March 14th.)

If you are not local to the San Diego area, and are interested in a class like this one, or a class on another topic and the use of homeopathy, I invite you to contact me. We could plan an online class. You can contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

And if I can be of help to you or a family member, please contact me.

It Is Always A Good Time To Use Homeopathy

With the start of new school year, I wanted to repost this blog. Even though I am talking about children in this blog, homeopathy is wonderful for all ages.

*******

When I speak to a mom/dad/grandparent about their child, I almost always say this is a good time for your child to come in for homeopathic care. I say this whether the child is a baby (3 1/2 month old), young child, teenage child or 20 something child, or older. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.

Why Is It A Good Time?

a-smile-333604_960_720It is a good time because the child is so young. The health issue that the child is experiencing is not entrenched; they have not had it for a long period of time. Children have a very strong vital force/vitality and respond well to homeopathy.

It is a good time because the child may have just started using medications, or is not using them at all. These medications may help with the symptoms and ease the discomfort, the behavior, the breathing, the itching, but they are not really healing. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

It is a good time because the child is still growing and developing their bodies, their minds, and who they are as a person. As parents, we want the best for our children, in their health and in their life.

It is a good time because often when a child is doing better, it affects the whole family unit, healing the family.

It is a good time because – I have a soft spot for children. I guess this is my “because”.

What Do Parents Call About?

These are some of the health concerns parents have called me about:

  • ear aches and ear infections – the child may have been on several courses of antibiotic.
  • digestive issues, such as acid re flux, spitting up, stomachaches after eating, chronic diarrhea, difficulty eating certain foods, constant nausea
  • skin eruptions – eczema, warts, rashes
  • continually crying and seeming to be in pain or discomfort
  • breathing difficulties, such as asthma
  • difficultly focusing on school work
  • behavioral issues – angry outbursts, tantrums, pulling inside oneself by withdrawing
  • chronic coughs
  • menstrual issues – painful cramps, being very emotional and weepy
  • reactions to vaccinations
  • sleep issues – insomnia, nightmares
  • fears
  • just not feeling well

A SIMPLE EXAMPLE OF HOMEOPATHY – LIKE CURES LIKE

When someone has a cold or an allergy, their nose may be continually runny. Their eyes are  tearing, burning, and stinging. They want to rub their eyes to ease the discomfort. The homeopathic remedy Allium cepa, made from the red onion, can be very helpful for someone who is experiencing these types of symptoms, whether it is a cold or allergies.

Allium cepa is helpful because it is similar to what the person is experiencing. (LIKE CURES LIKE) When you think about what happens when you cut an onion, your eyes tear, burn and sting. And your nose runs. The crying isn’t like when you are sad, which is just tearing, but here, you want to rub and wipe your eyes.

HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the person, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits this person. This applies to someone who is experiencing behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.

It is always good to check with your physician. Homeopathy can be used alongside western medicine.

I Enjoy Working With Families – Helping Them With Homeopathy

In my homeopathic practice, I often work with families, seeing several people in the family: the children and one or both of the parents, or a grandparent. I really enjoy working with families, and getting to know them.  Recently, a friend said to me that working with families may be my niche. I do see individuals too,

Healing – The Family

Usually it is one of the children who starts, and as they are doing better, a sibling, a parent, or another family member starts to come in for homeopathic care. By working family 3with the different members of the family, I see the interactions, the similarities, the differences, and history of the family. Just as each of us are a whole, and the symptoms we experience make up our whole, the family is the whole, and each member of the family is part of this whole.

When a family member, who was not doing well and in some ways was the center of attention for the whole family, starts to do better in their health, other family members can now pay attention to themselves. It is as if the other family members were holding back, focusing so much on the one family member that needed so much, and now the other family members could focus on themselves, their needs, and their health.

Health Concerns Family Members Experience

These are some of the health concerns that members of a family have come to homeopathy for:

  • pains in the abdomen before menses
  • chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia
  • difficulty with vision
  • tantrums, acting out
  • fears
  • sleep difficulties
  • earaches, congestion, fevers, coughs
  • broken bones, fractures
  • skin eruptions and skin feeling very sensitive
  • breathing difficulties – asthma
  • epilepsy
  • depression and anxiety
  • digestive issues
  • reaction to a vaccine
  • menstrual issues – menopause
  • sore throats
  • teething
  • feeling very chilled

Usually, it is a chronic condition that brings the first family member into homeopathy. Then another family member comes in for a chronic, an acute or first aid concern. becomes part of their health care resources, along with western medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, therapy and other modalities.

Families

A family is any group of people that live together, or not, that love, family rainbowrespect, honor, nurture, and accept each other. A family doesn’t have to be a mom and a dad and children. It can be two moms, two dads, one mom and children, one mom and dogs or cats, a grandparent and aunt and children, and also people who are not related by blood. A family is a group of people who have a closeness and love for each other.

Homeopathy To Heal

If I can be of help to you, and/or your family, please contact me and let’s talk to see if homeopathy would be a good fit. You can contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Repost: Homeopathy, Helpful When Someone Has The Measles

This is a reposting of a blog I wrote in February 2015.

We have been hearing a lot again in the news about outbreaks of the measles. When I wrote the post, I felt it was important to give positive and constructive information if someone does become sick with the measles. I still feel that way.  I have added a few other things to the post.

*******

I think it is important for parents to know that if their child, or themselves as an adult, become ill with measles, or any other childhood disease, homeopathy can help during these times. And, to know that homeopathy is helpful if someone has vaccinated their child and there are adverse reactions to the vaccines.

The body has a wonderful ability to heal itself. It is when the body gets stuck, that help may be needed, and this is when homeopathy will be useful. The homeopathic remedies are helping the body with its own healing abilities.

It is important to see your physician, and if you choose to use homeopathy, to see a practitioner of homeopathy, a homeopath, to help in this health situation. You don’t want to self treat.

Measles

Measles is one of several childhood diseases. It is important that the rash develops, and moves downward. That is an indication of healing – from the inside out, and from the top downward. To read more about direction of healing, read my blog post on direction of cure.

Symptoms of measles:

  • Fever of 102 – 104 Fahrenheit
  • Watery eyes – eyes inflamedmeasles
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Hard, dry cough
  • Sore throat
  • Seldom has an appetite
  • Tongue may be coated
  • Breath – sick smelling
  • Rash may start in mouth on 2nd or 3 rd day. Tiny, white spots in inner lining of the mouth, called Koplik’s Spots.
  • On 4th or 5th day, an itchy red, rash will appear. Large, flat blotches. They may run into each other. The rash starts on the face, moving downward. (This is a Direction of Cure.) Lasting 4 -7 days. Rash is a good sign.
  • Fever may rise as rash moves down the body, and subside in a few days.
  • Lasts around 10 days
  • Most contagious, 2 – 4 days before rash appears. Still keep child isolated for 5 days after rash develops.

Observation To Help Come to a Homeopathic Remedy

It is best to observe the person: their physical state, emotional state, and mental state. It is matching what the person is experiencing to a homeopathic remedy that is similar. This is Like Cures Like or the Law of Similiars, the main principle of homeopathy.

Some areas to observe and note:

  • Symptoms come on suddenly or gradually
  • Which are the prominent symptoms? Fever, restlessness, fatigue, eye irritations, runny nose, rash
  • Color of nasal discharge. Does it irritate the skin?
  • Sensitivity to light. How do the eyes feel?
  • Reaction to motion
  • Limbs or facial muscles jerk or twitch
  • Feel tired or heavy
  • Cough or chest pains. What is the cough like?
  • Headache. Location of pain.  What is pain like?
  • Rash – present or not, discomfort
  • Thirst or no thirst.
  • Digestive issues – nausea, diarrhea, constipation.
  • Emotional state – irritability, wanting to be alone, wanting to be around others
  • Desire of fresh air

Of course, it is important to get as much rest and sleep as one can, drink fluids, eat if one wants to or not. Being in a dark room may help if someone is very sensitive to the light. Vitamin C and A can be helpful as well.

Homeopathic Remedies

homeopathic vialsThe ill person may start with one homeopathic remedy and then need to change to another, as they move through the illness. The homeopathic remedies are helping the body in its own healing abilities. One homeopathic remedy is used at a time.

Here is a short description of some of the remedies that are useful when someone has the measles.

Aconite – Restless. Eyes ache in the light. Eyes and nose are streaming. Hard, croupy cough. Useful in early days of measles, especially if it has come on suddenly. Has a fever. Fearful.

Apis – High fever. Skin swollen. Inflamed eyes and lips. Worse by heat. Thirstless. Irritable. may be delirious. Restless. Can’t stay still.

Belladonna – Useful in early stage, like Aconite. And can be useful after the rash has developed. Restless, red face and flushed,. Thirstless. Throbbing headache. Skin is damp from fever. May be delirious. Unable to sleep. Limbs may twitch and jerk. Has a sore throat. Bothered by noise, light and jarring.

Bryonia – When rash is slow or late to appear, or doesn’t develop fully. Taking Bryonia will bring out the rash. When chest is affected. Cough is dry and painful, and made worse by motion.

Thirst for large amounts of cold water between long intervals. Worse by any motion and warmth. Better by being still and with cold things.

Euphrasia – Nasal discharge and eye symptoms are dominate. Eyes are sensitive to light. Acrid tears streaming from red, swollen eyes, which irritates the checks. Profuse watery nasal discharge that does not irritate the nose nor the upper lip. (Different from Gelsenium). Harsh cough. may have a headache. Nasal and eye symptoms are better in the open air.

Motionless, because they are too tired. Not very thirsty. Chilly, though feverish. Complaining of achiness. Harsh, croupy cough. Hoarseness. Watery nasal discharge that irritates the nose and upper lip (different from Euphrasia). When rash starts, it is very itchy.

Kali bichromicum – The rash appears on the 4th or 5 th day, and the fever usually lessens at that time. The cough is looser during the day. Laryngitis with a hoarse, brassy cough may develop. Feels a tickle at the base of the throat. The expectoration is long strings of a ropy, tough mucus, yellow in color. There may be an earache and nausea. Watery eyes. And eyelids stick together.

Pulsatilla – Useful in later stages of measles, when fever has subsided. Similar to Kali bichromicum, but milder. Nasal discharge is thick and yellowish. Profuse tearing from the eyes. Cough is dry at night, loose during the day. Symptoms worse at dusk. wants cool air, worse in heat. Little thirst. May have nausea with diarrhea. Earaches. Wants to be with other people. Wants sympathy.  Changeable in moods. Likes the open air.

Rhus Tox – Intensely itchy rashes. Worse at night and during rest. Restlessness. Rash recedes or fails to appear.

A Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy can be a wonderful help in the healing when someone has contracted measles. The information in this blog is to show you that there is help when someone becomes ill with the measles.

We are hearing news that may scare us. I want to ease your fears and to give you information that is helpful.

If you or a loved one has developed measles, contact your physician, and also contact a homeopath to help with homeopathic care during this time. I am available either through this blog, or through my website http://www.homeopathytoheal.com

Yes, Chocolate has been made into a homeopathic remedy. Chocolate is part of the plant family, Malvale. There are over 4000 homeopathic remedies made from plants, minerals and elements, and different animals.

Chocolate was made into a homeopathic remedy by Jeremy Sherr. Jeremy Sherr is a wonderful homeopath, who has done many provings of different substances that are made into homeopathic remedies. He lives and chocolate-551424_960_720practices  in Africa now, and teaches homeopathy all over the world. If you google him and Chocolate, you can read more about this homeopathic remedy, and other remedies.

I recently gave Chocolate to one of my patients.

I often write in my posts that each homeopathic remedy has a picture. My job as a homeopath is to understand the picture and the totality of the person, and then match that with a homeopathic remedy that has the similar picture.

Connection And Disconnection

In the Malvale family there is the feeling of being connected, attached, bonded and intimate with people. The opposite is the feeling of being disconnected, alone, separate, and isolated.

When I was studying this family (Malvale) during one of the schools I attended, the analogy of a nursing baby kept coming up for me. I have always thought and said, when a baby is nursing it is like baby breastfeedingbaby heaven for them. The baby is getting food, nourishment, closeness, body bonding, being held, loved, protected, cared for, nurturing, feeling safe and secure. Everything is all rolled into one.

The look on the baby’s face as they fall asleep at the breast, is euphoric, smiling as they are sleeping. It as if they are in heaven, baby heaven. What a wonderful feeling this is for the baby, and often a wonderful feeling for the mother too. This is deep bonding and connection.

The opposite would be non bonding. The feeling of being alone, isolated, detached, indifferent, wanting to connect, a feeling of self sufficiency in that they don’t need anyone, and that they can do it alone. In some ways their actions may push people away, so that they cannot connect, even though they want to.

Hedgehog

A specific analogy in describing Chocolate is the hedgehog. The hedgehog has two distinctly different sides: the soft belly and the quills on the back and outside of its body. The hedgehog-3209499_960_720belly’s softness is inviting to cuddle and snuggle up to, but the back would be something you would want to avoid, almost feeling repelled by it, because of the prickly quills that could hurt. The hedgehog rolls up, protecting its soft belly, presenting the quill side to the outside world.

The belly and the back are the two sides of Chocolate.

(In the photo, the hedgehog is being held by supporting the soft belly, and avoiding the quills.)

My Patient

It is too soon to say how my patient is doing, since she just started taking this homeopathic remedy. Some of what she talked about when I saw her was the feeling of wanting a connection with people, and how she felt it is difficult for her to do so. She feels very lonely and alone. (This also is part of our society today. We are very connected through technology, and maybe not as much through in person, social interactions.)

She has digestive issues. And she said that she is eating chocolate a lot. She is aware when she is eating chocolate that she is trying to fill herself up with something – maybe a sense of belonging, nurturing, connecting, love, maternal love and bonding.

Please know that if you eat a lot of chocolate, it doesn’t mean you need the homeopathic remedy Chocolate.  🙂
