The Same Pattern Of You

Several weeks ago, I was having lunch with a woman I had met recently. We were learning about what each of us do, and having a good time doing so. She had heard of the word homeopathy, she said. And as we were talking, she realized that she really did not know what homeopathy was, and now she had a better understanding of it.

She said, homeopathy is like giving someone the same pattern of them.

pattern 3Yes, I said, what a wonderful way of saying it – the same pattern.

The Same Pattern

It is giving the same pattern of what the person is experiencing – in their illness, in their problem, in their stuckness. Giving the homeopathic remedy that is the same pattern, the similar to that of the person. This is like cures like or The Law of Similars.

Very simply, if someone is having difficulty sleeping, is an insomniac, and is very wound up at night, they may do well with the homeopathic remedy Coffea crudum. Coffea crudum is made from the coffee plant. And if someone who has allergies or a cold with stinging, burning sensations in their eyes, and a lot of tearing from their eyes and their nose, they may do well with the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa. Allium cepa is made from the onion. These are two simple examples of like cures like. Giving the same pattern, giving the same pattern of what the person’s suffering is like. Actually that is what homeopathy means, similar suffering.

What Is The Pattern

As a homeopath, I hear what the problem is, what the suffering is for the person. It is not just the symptoms. Symptoms are signs or the manifestations of the deeper problem. I am listening, observing, witnessing, the deeper problem, getting to know what the person’s pattern is. And then giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy. Giving the same pattern, as my new friend said. This similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing abilities, pushing them them through were they are stuck. And lessening and quieting down the pattern.

The pattern can be doing the same thing over and over again, having the same reaction to things, having the same physical flare up. Going round and round. I sometimes experience my own going round and round, and that is why years ago, I sought out homeopathic care. I continue to see my homeopath when needed. I do not treat myself. Homeopathy helps to quiet down and lessen my pattern, my round and round.

Measles: Homeopathy Helps

We have been hearing a lot about measles in the news. What we having been hearing has been about whether people have been vaccinated or not vaccinated for measles. I don’t want to go into this topic in this blog 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.

In this blog I want to talk about measles, and how homeopathy can be helpful if someone is not moving through it well. 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 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:

measles

  • Fever of 102 – 104 Fahrenheit
  • Watery eyes – eyes inflamed
  • 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 2 – 3 rd day. Tiny, white spots in inner lining of mouth, called Koplik’s Spots.
  • On 4th or 5th day, itchy red, rash will appear. Large, flat blotches, they may run into each other. Start on 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 similar homeopathic remedy. This is Like Cures Like or the Law of Similars. 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
  • 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

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.

Not All Coughs Are The Same – Healing With Homeopathy

Coughs.

Coughs are the way our bodies try to clear something out of our throats, airways or lungs. There could be a tickle in our throats. We may have chocked on something, food or just swallowed the wrong way.  And then we cough. It could just be one cough, or an outgoing coughing spell.  The cough could be loose and wet, or dry and hard. A hard cough can be very painful, and tiring. Mucus/phlegm of different colors or thicknesses could be coughed up. Even blood could be coughed up. Vomiting may occur after a coughing spell, or even loss of urine.  The cough could be worse at a certain time of day. Or worse from cool air felt on the body.  The person may feel fearful, irritable, want to be alone or want to be surrounded by other people.  This could be an acute cough situation, or a flare up of a chronic cough.

someone coughing

Here is a list of some homeopathic remedies with a short description of how the cough is experienced in this remedy picture.  Please know that there are many more homeopathic remedies that could be useful for a cough. You will see when reading these descriptions, how different each cough can be. All coughs are not the same.

Observe the person who is coughing, then match that to these short descriptions.  The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like or the Law of Similars. Very simply, you are matching the symptoms of the person to that of the homeopathic remedy.

  • ACONITE  – cough comes on suddenly. After exposure to cold, dry wind. Constant short, dry cough with a croupy sound that wakens the person from sleep. Anxious feeling. cough arises from the larynx as the person enters a warm room.  Very fearful.
  • BELLADONNA – person is red faced. Burning hot. Dilated pupils. Cough begins as if there is a speck has settled in the larynx.  Sudden onset. Dry teasing cough, keeps the whole house awake at night.
  • BRYONIA – hard, dry cough with a painful chest. Needs to sit up in bed. Similar to Aconite, in that the cough becomes worse when entering a warm room. Thirst for cold drinks. Irritable,  wants to be left alone. Worse from any movement.
  • FERRUM PHOSPHORICUM  – short, painful cough from irritation or tickling in the windpipe.
  • HEPAR SULPH – oversensitive, especially to cold air and the slightest drafts. Very cold. wants to be wrapped up, cannot bear to be uncovered. Coughs even when putting a hand out of the covers. Cough is loose, rattling and croupy. May cough up a thick yellow mucus. Sometimes a coughing spell causes strangling and gagging. Worse in morning.
  • KALI BICHROMICUM – cough sounds brassy and hacking. Seems to come from a tickle at the base of the throat.  Expectoration is a long, string of ropy and tough mucus. Maybe of a yellowish color.
  • NUX VOMICA  – dry, teasing cough. worse in larynx and chest. Cough may come in spells and end with retching. Occurs more often in cold, dry windy weather. person is often feverish. Shivers when moving or when uncovered. Oversensitive to noise, odors, light, music. Easily offended.
  • PHOSPHORUS – when a head cold has gone to the chest. dry, tickling, exhausting cough coming from the larynx or farther down in the chest. May feel a sensation  of tightness across chest or as if there is a great weight pressing on the chest. Cough from talking or being in the open air. May have a bursting headache. Thirst for ice cold drinks and fruity juices.
  • PULSATILLA – dry cough in the evening that sounds loose in the morning. May have paroxysms of coughing with gagging and choking, bringing up thick, yellowish mucus. Feels as if there is a weight on the chest. Worse from coming into a warm room. Better in open air.
  • RUMEX CRISPUS  – cough occurs when going outside, opposite to symptoms of Aconite. Dry, short paroxysms of coughing or a constant hack.
  • SPONGIA – wakes from sleep with a suffocation feeling. Difficulty breathing. Anxious, as with croup. Loud cough sounding like a saw through a board. Worse: from talking and before midnight.

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

You may want to see a homeopathic practitioner. The cough may just be a part of the total picture, and the homeopath will take a more in depth look at the person.

Never Well Since…….., Homeopathy Heals

Recently, I spoke to a woman who has been constantly tired. She said that this all started after she had a very bad fall. She hasn’t been well since, she said.

Many times, people may not be well after they have had some kind of physical trauma or emotional loss or upset. Specifically, physical traumas are anything that has happened to the body, or changes to the body, such as: a surgery, a fall, a high fever, a course(s) of antibiotics, an infection,  a pregnancy, a miscarriage, the flu, vaccinations, puberty, and menopause.  An emotional trauma could be a loss of a loved one, a big disappointment, a divorce, a geographical move, a loss of a job, mistreatment, a war experience, and sexual abuse.  There may be other types of traumas that I have not mentioned.

Never well since means that the person has not been well since that particular trauma occurred. The person may have dealt with the trauma, and that was no longer an issue or concern, but they may have developed a particular physical, emotional or mental symptom or a health condition after this.  Now this is their main concern, and they are not feeling well.

Some of these health concerns could be: prolonged headaches, digestive issues, autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, women’s issues, men’s issues, difficulty breathing, skin eruptions, eczema, hair loss, chronic fatigue, insomnia or other sleep disturbances, nightmares, phobias, fears, post traumatic syndrome, just not feeling well, and more.

don't feel well

The person may have seen doctors or other health professionals for help, such as the woman who called me, yet they are still not feeling well. This is a good time to come to homeopathy.

Homeopathy looks at the whole person, knowing that all the parts of the person are interconnected. This includes the prolonged response to the trauma that the person is experiencing – the never well since. Through the understanding of what the person is experiencing in their health concern, the homeopathic practitioner (homeopath) selects a homeopathic remedy that is similar to their suffering.  The main principle of homeopathy is the Law or Similars or Like Cures Like. Each person is unique in how they experience their symptoms and health concerns. The given homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, and the person starts to feel better.

Homeopathy is gentle in its healing and there are no side effects. It heals at the root of what is bothering the person. The person then is feeling better, and the never been well since is also healed.

Healing With Homeopathy: Successful Results

The Society of Homeopaths is an organization that represents professional homeopaths in the UK. In their online publication, an article is written about the success of homeopathy in healing patients experiencing various health concerns. The evaluation of the patients took place at the Bristol Homeopathic Hospital.  Patients were both children and adults. Some of the health concerns that these patients experienced were: eczema, asthma, inflammatory bowel diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, menopausal issues, arthritis, migraines, depression and chronic fatigue.

If you would like to read the article, I have included the link: http://www.homeopathy-soh.org/…homeopathy-in-practice/http://www.homeopathy-soh.org/research/evidence-base-for-homeopathy-2/homeopathy-in-practice/

It is good to have a study showing how wonderful homeopathy heals. There is a need for homeopathy.

homeopathic remedies

Homeopathy treats the person, not the disease. Two people who experience asthmatic symptoms would not need the same homeopathic remedy. Each person is given a homeopathic remedy that is similar to what they are experiencing. The Law of Similars or Like Cures Like is one of the main principles of homeopathy. General symptoms of asthma may be experienced by each person, such as difficulty breathing, but underneath and at the core, each person experiences the asthma uniquely to them.  By understanding each person’s suffering, the homeopath gives the homeopathic remedy that is most similar to that person, that stimulates the person’s own healing.

Homeopathy – Healing Children

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

Some ongoing health concerns that children experience:

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

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

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

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

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

boy running and playing baseball

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