Holiday Season 2020

We are at the start of the holiday season, 2020.

I often send a post out around this time – about the holiday blues, about the expectations people have of themselves and of the holidays. This year, there is just more ______ . I don’t know what the word is. I think the just more comes from the physical restrictions or guidelines for these holidays, and for the unknown and uncertainty that we are feeling.

When I mentioned to one woman recently that there was a holiday next week, meaning Thanksgiving, she said “What, a holiday, which one?” People are feeling a loss, a loneliness, sadness, anger, fear, angst, depression, grief, guilt, happiness, joy, pride (these too), and many, many more emotions.

I want to wish you all a happy holiday season. I can say be kind to yourselves. Yes, do that, be kind. But also know that this is a difficult time, and a different time. And it is okay to have the feelings you are experiencing.

What has this got to with homeopathy?

Maybe nothing. But I always plug homeopathy. There is such a need for it. Always and now. For its gentleness. For its seeing and hearing the individual person. For its healing. For its compassion and humanness.

If I can be of help to you or a family member, homeopathically, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I see patients locally to and out of the San Diego area using WhatsApp, Facetime and Skype.

Happy Holidays.

Be well.

For Healing – It Is Individual, Not A One Size Fits All

Not A One Size Fits All

We are all different. We experience our health concerns uniquely to ourselves. We may be given a diagnosis, a name, a label that includes the yellow umbrellasymptoms we are experiencing. But we are different.

The treatments we use need to fit who we are as an individual, not just to the diagnosis, the label, or the general, usual, common symptoms of the diagnosis. We need treatments that fit what we are experiencing.

We are not all the same. It is not a one size fits all.

The Season 2020 – 2021

We are hearing a lot about the flu, and the coronavirus as we go into Fall and then Winter. I always like to be supportive and positive in what I write here, and when I see patients. I feel that there is a lot of fear being put out into the public. There are ways to take care of ourselves and our families if we do become ill with the flu or with the coronavirus. Homeopathy being one of those ways, and a very good healing modality.

And the one size doesn’t fit all, pertains to the flu too.

Homeopathy – Helpful For Many Health Concerns (2020)

Over the last 9 months, I have seen people for various health concerns. It is always a gamut of health concerns. The age range is from baby to older adult, more women than men come in.

To me these various health concerns show how helpful homeopathy is. Very often people come to homeopathy because they are not getting the help they need from western, allopathic medicine. There is a need for homeopathy.

The health concerns are:

  • coronavirus symptoms
  • shingles – two cases
  • eczema
  • digestive issues
  • broken and fractured bones
  • menstrual issues – heavy bleeding, exhausting, painful
  • help in healing after surgery
  • ongoing (chronic) urinary tract infections, very painful
  • dental work
  • depression
  • reaction to a vaccine
  • help when receiving vaccines needed for a new job

Homeopathy looks at the totality of the person, the holism of the person. It is not just the diagnosis or name of the syndrome, such as shingles or an urinary tract infection, but the totality of the person. Such as – what other symptoms is the person experiencing? In what other parts of the body? What makes the symptoms better or worse? What is the pain like? What is their emotional state? Dreams? What was happening right before they got sick or developed this symptom? How long have they been experiencing the symptom(s)?

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

If I can be of help homeopathically to you or a family member, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I am seeing patients both local to and out of the San Diego area using Whatsapp, Facetime or Skype. Wishing you all well.

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

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. Although, the classes are held at the San Diego Breastfeeding Center, (8325 University Avenue, La Mesa, CA. 91942), they are open to all, not just a breastfeeding family.

And those people who live outside the San Diego area and are interested in a class like these, please contact me and we can arrange a virtual one or another location for the class.

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.
