There Is Hope For A Healing

I read my posts often and see that I repeat myself, writing the same things over and over again. It is getting homeopathy out to people. And I probably will continue doing that.

What I really want to say, in addition to staying in touch with you, is …

To tell you that you have choices regarding your health care. 

That homeopathy can be part of your health care. It can be one of your choices, and work with other healing modalities you may use.

That a healing can happen, not just a maintaining.         im - possible

That it takes time. Healing is a process.

That you can be heard.

That we are all individuals, and experience what bothers us, uniquely to us.

That it is not a one size fits all.

That I often see people who have tried other healing modalities, and are not feeling better. At this time, they come to homeopathy.

That there is hope.

Over these last 18 months, almost 2 years now, what has grounded me during this time, is my knowledge of homeopathy. I feel, I know, that homeopathy can help and heal so many of the health issues that people experience today, including the coronavirus and some of the repercussions from it. Maybe I am naive. I think rather I am hopeful and I have confidence in homeopathy. I want to get homeopathy out to you, and out to the world.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one, of any age, regarding a health issue, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15+ minute Get Acquainted Call to see if this is something you would like to pursue. I see patients in person and virtually.

What is this LIKE CURES LIKE That I keep Writing About?

What is this Like Cures Like or Law of Similars, that I keep writing about? What is this giving the similar to what the patient is experiencing in the form of a homeopathic remedy?

Onion

Think how it feels when you are cutting, peeling, or slicing an onion. Your eyes start to tear, to burn and to sting. You wipe or rub your eyes, sometimes using a cloth, trying to get out whatever is in them, if there is anything. Your nose may also start to run or onion 2drip. Other people may say you are crying. You say you are crying. It doesn’t feel like it does when you are crying. Yes, there are tears, but this is not how you feel when you cry. Your eyes don’t usually sting or burn when you are crying.

If someone is experiencing these kinds of symptoms that I described above when they have a cold or an allergy, the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa may be helpful for them. Allium cepa is made from the red onion.

It doesn’t matter if it is a cold or an allergy. It is the symptoms of the burning, the stinging, the tearing, the runny eyes and nose that are guiding the homeopath to the homeopathic remedy. In this case, guiding them to Allium cepa. The name, whether it is a cold or allergy, doesn’t mean anything. It is the symptoms that are the guide.

The example of peeling an onion is used very often to explain Like Cures Like.

Symptoms

The symptoms are the pieces of the total picture of the person. Homeopaths use the symptoms as a guide to what homeopathic remedy is needed for the person; matching the homeopathic remedy to the symptoms that make up the totality of the person. This is Like Cures Like. You can see why the homeopath needs to know a lot about each person, so the similar, the similar homeopathic remedy, can be given.

The symptoms are the way the vital force, the immune system, the chi, of the person is trying to heal itself. Giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy assists in the person’s healing process.

When I meet with a patient, I am finding out about them, about their symptoms. This can be for any health issue that a person comes to homeopathy for – such as menstrual difficulties, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, skin eruptions, fears, headaches, allergies, sore throats, ear infections, autoimmune issues, to list just a few. And then giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy, Like Cures Like.

Coronavirus

Over a year ago, I wrote several blogs on how homeopathy can be helpful with the coronavirus. I want to mention this again. Homeopathy is helpful: 

  • if someone comes down with the coronavirus
  • is having “long haul”, lingering types of symptoms
  • has a “breakthrough” infections
  • has had a vaccine and is experiencing side effects from it, soon after or continuing over a period of time.

Homeopaths all over the world are helping people using homeopathic remedies that are similar to what the person is experiencing, in regards to the coronavirus. Again, this is Like Cures Like.

We don’t hear about how homeopathy is helpful in mainstream news. I want you to know that there are ways to help yourself and your family. And homeopathy can be used along with other healing modality treatments.

I invite you to contact me to find out how homeopathy can be part of your healing process. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call to see if this is fit for you. Either contact me here through my blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Starting A New School Year – How Will it Be?

With the start of a new school year, there are often different feelings that come up. It is natural to have feelings about a new situation and wondering how it will be. With the start of this school year, 2021, students of all ages, preschool through graduate and parents too, may be having more feelings of trepidation, uncertainty, fear, anticipation, anxiety, performance anxiety, embarrassed, worry about safety and health than usual. There may also be feelings of excitement, finally, and yay back at school.

I think for any child, and parent, there is a mixture of feelings. Wondering, how will this school year be?

I want to add that these kinds of feelings may also be experienced by people regarding their jobs. They may be starting a new job or going back to work after having been working at home.

Sometimes people – children, teenagers, adults – develop physical symptoms from having an upsetting experience or from anticipating something that may happen. The physical symptoms could be stomachaches, headaches, nausea, diarrhea, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, menstrual changes, skin eruptions, obsessive behaviors, phobias, fears, nightmares, sore throats, breathing difficulties, earaches, colds, flus, and more.

The emotional state and the physical state of a person are connected. Each are pieces making up the totality of the person. Homeopathy looks at the totality of the person.

ANXIETY

I want to specifically address anxiety. Several mothers I talked to recently suggested that I write about this regarding college age students. A thank you to these two mothers for the suggestion.

anxiety word

Very often, people who say they are feeling anxious are given a prescription medication. The prescribed medication may be relieving for a period time, but it is not healing, at the core. We use the words “anxiety” and “anxious” a lot. It is a BIG generic term/label/diagnosis, and it is treated in a generic way too, not looking at the individual and what they are experiencing. Homeopathy looks at the individual and what they are experiencing.

To ask and seek out help is a very positive, constructive action to take whether for yourself or a loved one.

I Have This _____? Can Homeopathy Help Me?

Recently, I was asked if homeopathy could help with plantar fasciitis. She said since she hadn’t read about it on my website, she wondered if homeopathy could help.

I said yes.

I was very glad she had asked about this. I thought perhaps other people may have had the same thought that homeopathy could not help them if they hadn’t read anything written about it in my information, website, blog, and newsletter. Since not seeing the name of it, they may have thought that homeopathy could not help them.

We often need to read specifically what we “have” written about, or to hear a story of someone like us using a particular healing modality before we may consider it. For example to know if homeopathy has helped someone with plantar fasciitis, then someone may look into homeopathy.

Homeopathy focuses on how the individual experiences what is bothering them. When a homeopath meets with a puzzle-14451_960_720person the general and usual symptoms of what is bothering is heard, such as with plantar fasciitis, AND, other symptoms of the individual are heard too. These symptoms can be about their emotional state, other physical symptoms they experience, mental functioning, sleep, dreams, fears and more. All of this, these pieces, are taken together to make up the totality of the person. The totality is what is focused on to heal. The plantar fasciitis is one of the pieces, or several of them.

The given homeopathic remedy is similar to this totality. The main principle of homeopathy is LIKE CURES LIKE, or The Law of Similars. The homeopathic remedy that is given is for the totality of the person, including the plantar fasciitis. This could be said for any “this is what I have”, name of a disease or syndrome that someone is experiencing, autoimmune diseases included. The “have” is a piece of the total picture. 

I find that a lot of people have been give a name to what is bothering them. They may be having treatment for it, but are not feeling better. At this point, they may be looking for other healing modalities. That is why they ask me, “I have this __________________,  can homeopathy help me?”

If there is a health issue you or a loved one are experiencing and you haven’t seen anything written about it in my information, I invite you to contact me. Let’s talk. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call or Zoom meeting to see if homeopathy is something you would want to pursue. I see people local to and outside of the San Diego area, and people of all ages, babies to older adults. You can contact me here, or on my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Each Person’s Healing Process Is Individual To Them

From the beginning of working with a person, I tell them that there most likely will be a series of homeopathic remedies needed, using one at a time. As we work together, I am learning more about them, witnessing, seeing, hearing them. We are doing this together. I always say, it is the person who is healing themselves.

It may be that they need just one or two doses of the first homeopathic remedy. Or they may need several doses of the remedy over a period of time. Or a higher potency or strength of the homeopathic remedy. Or that that the first homeopathic remedy helped, to a point, and brought up other symptoms and now another homeopathic remedy is needed. This may happen several times, the need for a different remedy.

ladder in the woods -4681114_960_720

The image of a ladder has been used by other homeopaths to illustrate a series of homeopathic remedies. One rung is one remedy, the next rung possibly another remedy. The next rung a stronger potency. Next rung, maybe time has passed and the person comes back. And so on. 

It is a process, and individual to the person.

The intention is always for a long lasting healing, not a band aid or quick fix that only lasts for a short time. Although sometimes we do need a quick fix for that moment, and then a homeopathic remedy promoting a long lasting healing afterwards.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one regarding a health issue, I encourage you to contact me through this blog or though my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is something you want to pursue regarding your health. .

Being Stuck

Being stuck.

When someone is not feeling well, whether it is an acute illness or an ongoing chronic issue, they are stuck. Stuck in the symptoms they are experiencing, whether they are physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual ones. Not moving stuck-snow-carforward from the symptoms. The symptoms are not changing and the person is not feeling better. There is no movement.

For example, if someone has an acute illness such as a dry, unproductive cough that is lingering and lingering, exhausting the person, we want to see the cough starting to loosen up, becoming a more wetter type of cough. Maybe starting to cough up some mucous, and the nose starting to run. There might even be a rash. This is movement and change. Not being stuck anymore. The person is healing.

With a chronic, ongoing health issue the person lives with the symptoms. There may be flare ups or episodes, and there may times that the person feels better, but then the symptoms come back. The person may think that this will never change, accepting that this is just part of their life or how their life will be. This is being stuck.

I say often to someone who has an acute illness, we want to see change in your symptoms. We want to see movement from what you are experiencing. This is showing that you are healing, no longer being stuck. 

A lot of the patients that come to homeopathy are stuck. They are stuck in their symptoms, in their state of ill health. Whether it is skin eruptions, menstrual difficulties, anxiety/depression, fears, breathing difficulties, just not feeling well, sore throats, digestive issues, nausea, pain, arthritis, headaches …. They are stuck.

Homeopathy heals, creating movement, helping someone to become unstuck, so they can live their live fully.

Homeopathy Is A Living Medicine

A living medicine.

I talk to myself quite a bit. Recently I said to myself that homeopathy is a living medicine.  I was thinking about how people use homeopathy, and this thought – homeopathy is a living medicine – came to me.

What I mean about a living medicine actually has several aspects.

First – the substances that homeopathic remedies are made from are living. Homeopathic remedies are made from plants, metals and minerals (the period table), animals (animals are not killed to make homeopathic remedies), and what is called imponderables, such as sunlight and moonlight. All of these substances – plants, minerals and metals, animals, imponderables – are alive in some way. They are and/or have energy.

Second – the energy part. The fact that these substances are energy makes them alive. Energy moves, changes, adapts, brush-96240_960_720grows, affects, and reproduces. All of these can be descriptions of being alive.

Third – relating to a living being, a person or an animal (homeopathy is very helpful for animals). The individual. How the person is. How they experience what bothers them. I think this is really what triggered my thought about homeopathy being a living medicine. The individual, what they are expressing through their symptoms, their state, is their aliveness. This is what we want to address. As a homeopath, this is what I want to know, witnessing this with the patient.

The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like. It is giving the similar to what the person is experiencing in the form of the homeopathic remedy. The aliveness of what the person is experiencing, with the aliveness of the  homeopathic remedy that is similar to them. Like cures like. Living/aliveness cures living/aliveness

Fourth – the aliveness. The living. The ability to change. Looking at the individual. This being. Their uniqueness. Not a one size fits all. This is the aliveness. And possibly, healing is alive too. It is change.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopthytoheal.com.  I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is something you want to pursue at this time.

I Feel Grateful – More People Are Coming To Homeopathy

My homeopathic practice has gotten busier. I like that for me. I like that for you, my patients, and for future patients. And I like that for homeopathy. 

I have always said, thought and written that there is a need for homeopathy. I think people are starting to see that homeopathy can fill a need they have. They are seeing that homeopathy can be helpful for them. Or at least starting to be more curious about it.heart in sand

I feel very grateful that people are coming. I feel grateful that they are seeing the value of homeopathy, and they are valuing themselves.

A person may be experiencing some health issue that has been bothering them for awhile. They may have used different healing modalities to help, but continue not to feel well. They want to feel better. At this time they are more open to other options for their health care. 

In my homeopathic practice, I see babies through older adults for a wide range of health issues  – anxiety, skin eruptions, women’s issues, digestive issues, headaches, pain, sleeping difficulties, fears, nervousness, colds, flus, injuries and more.

Homeopathy looks at the individual and the totality of the person. It is how the person experiences what bothers them, not the name of the syndrome or disease. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what the person is experiencing, stimulating their innate healing ability.

My Symptoms Keep Coming Back

People ask me, can you help me with ______?

I hear all sorts of health issues that people are experiencing. Such as, a person has pains and discomforts in their feet. Someone has an extremely itchy rash or eczema eruption. Breathing is difficult for someone. Being very anxious in some situations. Feelings of sadness or depression. Not sleeping well. During menstrual cycle certain symptoms come up. Feeling extremely fearful and/or having nightmares. Ongoing headaches, stomachaches, or digestive issues. Unable to focus or concentrate on their work or schoolwork. Painful pains.  Rheumatoid arthritis. Tremors. I hear all sorts of things.

The person is not feeling well, and they want to feel better.

Recurring Health Issue

Their health issue is often something that has been going on for a awhile, or it had gone away and now it is recurring, again. They may have periodic flare ups of it. They are not feeling better, even though they are doing different types of treatments. They want to feel better.

I have written in an earlier post about a young boy who had recurring nasal 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 a lot.  He no longer experienced the recurrence of the nasal congestion, the fevers, and the ear infections. 

Often when there is a recurring health issue, the treatments being used help to ease and to palliate when there is an outbreak or flare up. These treatments help the person feel better for the time being, but don’t heal the health issue. The person needs to continue taking the medications or treatments 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 issue for a longer period of time. But the cycle does end.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help a recurring health issue that you have. Either contact me here, through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a 15 minute complimentary Get Acquainted Call. I would be happy to talk with you about yours or a loved one’s health issue.

Having Choices

I am for choice. To get information, so we can make choices that work and fit us regarding our health care.   choice-2692466_960_720

Historically, homeopathy has been helpful in epidemics. There usually is a group of homeopathic remedies that fit that particular epidemic. This was so with the 1918 – 1919 Spanish Flu epidemic, and it is so with the epidemic we are experiencing now. Different homeopathic remedies have come up for each of these epidemics. I wrote about this in past blog posts.

During the time we are in, homeopathy has been used all over the world to help people who have come down with the coronavirus. It has helped tremendously. Unfortunately, in mainstream news we don’t hear about how helpful homeopathy has been.

Being a homeopath, and knowing that there is help if someone comes down with the virus, gives me confidence if I, a family member, or a patient do become sick. I have seen a few patients who had coronavirus symptoms. We used the homeopathic remedies that had come up to be useful for this virus, and that fit what the person was experiencing. Homeopathy helped them a lot.

In January 2021, I saw a woman who had difficulty breathing, especially saying that too much air was coming in when she was inhaling. She said she needed to wear a mask to decrease the amount of air coming in. She had been experiencing her symptoms for about 4 weeks before I saw her. Homeopathy helped her.

If people do choose to take the vaccine, there are homeopathic remedies that can be helpful for the initial reaction, such as a sore arm, a rash, a fever, a headache, and aches and pains. Historically, homeopathy has been very helpful for those who have lingering effects from a vaccine. There is a rubric in the Homeopathic Repertory “General, Vaccinations, after”, under which quite a few homeopathic remedies are listed.

I have seen a few patients who have had the vaccine, helping them with the kinds of reactions that I listed above. We don’t know yet what the long term reactions or side effects will be from these vaccines. Homeopaths all over the world are starting to collect cases of people who have had reactions, and coming up with homeopathic remedies that will be helpful. Collecting this information regarding side effects is similar to how the information was collected regarding homeopathic remedies for this epidemic. A group of homeopathic remedies will emerge as being helpful for those who have side effects.

My knowledge and trust in homeopathy guides me. It grounds me. I know there is help for those who are sick; those who come down with the coronavirus; those who don’t take the vaccine; and those who may experience side effects from the vaccine.

Having a choice is important. Choose what works for you. Do your research. I want to add, don’t come from fear.

Continue taking care of yourself by eating well, getting good rest, taking vitamins, being outside in the sunshine, being with people you enjoy, and doing activities you love. All these help to boost your immune system. We have a wonderful innate ability to heal.
