Flu Season, Again – Taking Care Of Ourselves

This is the time of year that I usually write a post about the flu. We actually have not heard too much about how this flu season is looking. That doesn’t really matter. There are ways to help care for ourselves and our family as a whole if we do come down with the flu, or experience lingering affects from the flu. Homeopathy can help with all of these.

Previous Posts About The Flu

Here are links to prior posts that I have written about the flu:

  • Gives some homeopathic remedies that are helpful if someone comes down with the flu. (Click here)
  • Talks about taking care of yourself, and the history of using homeopathy during the flu season, specifically mentioning the 1918-1919 flu epidemic. (Click here)
  • Talks about how some people may move through the flu fine, but experience lingering affects afterwards, and how homeopathy is helpful. It is called “never been well since”. (Click here)
  • Talks about homeopathic care before, during and after pregnancy. If a pregnant woman comes down with the flu, homeopathy can be very helpful.  (Click here) (Unfortunately, it is becoming more common for pregnant women to be given the flu vaccine. The vaccine used to not be given at all at this time, knowing it was dangerous for the mother and the developing fetus.)

Taking Care Of Ourselves

Changes are happening all the time in our lives. We have losses – a loved one dies, a marriage ends, an expectation isn’t met, being fire from a job. We have new beginnings – a new home, a new educational program, a new job. Even the changes of the seasons and the time can affect us. It is okay that we are affected by these changes. It is life happening.

When these these changes happen, how do we respond to them? How do we react? cup-of-tea-and-honeyHow do we go through these events/changes? How do we listen to ourselves? How do we talk to ourselves? What do we do? What do we not do? Do we ask for help, if needed? How do we take care of ourselves during this time?

If we are not in our best health, we may be more susceptible to coming down with the flu. Taking care of ourselves can involve different kinds of healing modalities, walks, pursing activities we love, eating good food, sleeping well, exercising, laughing, being with people we love, and more. When we take good care of and respect ourselves, we are in a better place to care for our loved ones.

It Is Okay

Know that it is okay to get sick. It is okay to have the flu.

In a way if we do become ill, with the flu, it is often our body saying, “Hey, I am making you rest so you can take of yourself. Slow down.” And the body has a wonderful ability to heal itself, of taking care.

So Many Changes During Pregnancy, What To Do? Homeopathy Helps

I was happy to work with a woman over this past year as she went through her pregnancy. She started having homeopathic care before she was pregnant, continued during her pregnancy, and now after the birth of her baby. And I have a good friend who is pregnant, who is also receiving homeopathic care.

So Many Changes

With the women I have worked with during pregnancy, they initially came for homeopathic care before they were pregnant. They came for a specific reason, something that bothered them. They said also, that they were wanting and planning on becoming  baby-feet-1527456__340pregnant very soon, and in a way, they were coming to homeopathy to help get pregnant.

When they did become pregnant, we continued with the homeopathic remedy. As they moved through their pregnancy, other conditions, symptoms, or states came up. When this happened, and the homeopathic remedy that we were using did not help, another homeopathic remedy was given that addressed what the woman was now experiencing.

This happened several times over the course of my patient’s pregnancy; she needed several different homeopathic remedies. And my friend has also said that she too has needed several different homeopathic remedies. As always, the homeopathic remedy is similar to what the person is experiencing. As a woman goes through her pregnancy, the birth, the afterbirth, and being a mom to this new baby, she may need a different homeopathic remedy that fits her state.

These are some of the changes that may be experienced:

  • morning sickness – nausea, headache
  • becoming sick with a cold, flu, cough
  • specific food cravings – sugar, worse from eating sugary foods
  • fatigue
  • heart palpitations and heart fluterings
  • overly sensitive to odors, environment, foods
  • unable to get comfortable
  • position of the baby
  • anxiety
  • being very emotional
  • exhaustion, and bruising from the birth
  • postpartum – depression, overwhelmed, body changes, new responsibilities

Homeopathy Helps The Mother And The Baby

It is a good time for a woman to come to homeopathy before she is pregnant. She is getting care for herself, and creating a healthy “soil” in which the baby will grow. (Homeopathy is earth soilhelpful for the dad as well before the pregnancy. Same thinking, creating a healthy soil.) And it is good to continue using homeopathy during her pregnancy, and after. It is helping both herself and the baby.

When I work with young children, and older ones too, I ask the mother about her pregnancy – how it was for her; how she felt physically, emotionally, and mentally; was there anything particular going on at the time; how was the birth, and more. I have learned that during a pregnancy, the mother and the baby share the same state. This information about the mother’s pregnancy often helps me to understand a little bit more of what the child is experiencing.

Homeopathy is safe to use when pregnant and when nursing the baby. Homeopathy focuses on the whole person, and addresses the individual. If you or a loved one is pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant soon, I encourage to see how homeopathy can be of help to you and to your future baby. You can contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.

After Pregnancy – A Change In A Woman’s Life

On the stats page of my blog, I saw that someone had googled “never well since pregnancy homeopathic remedy”. I am not sure exactly what their interest was, but I am going to take it as the person is not better since being pregnant, and wanting to know how homeopathy can help.

Changes

It is a happy time when a baby is born. There are also a lot of changes in a woman’s life at this time. Now, the mother has someone to take care of, who is totally brand new to the world, to itself, and to its mother-and-small-baby-1290405_960_720mother, father and its siblings. Everyone is learning about each other. We often say, the baby doesn’t come with a how-to manual. There are new roles, new responsibilities, new expectations, new schedules, new personalities, new family dynamics, just newness.

The mother wants to do the best job she can, even more than the best. With this new change in her life, she may be experiencing:

  • deprivation of sleep and sleep difficulties
  • breastfeeding issues
  • eating issues – not getting enough nutrients, not eating enough/eating too much
  • change in dynamics of the family
  • changes in her relationship with her significant other
  • image of herself / how she looks at herself, self reflection
  • how she looks physically – body is different, weight gain
  • going back to work/staying home
  • being super mom
  • healing from the birth or a c-section
  • miscarriage, stillbirth
  • anxiety, postpartum depression – An article on postpartum depression
  • exasperation of an ongoing health issue
  • baby having a difficult time or experiencing a health issue
  • health issues of a family member
  • feelings of being overwhelmed
  • advice from others
  • the baby was adopted

Getting Help

To ask for help is always a sign of strength, whether it is asking our family, friends, and/or professionals. By taking care of herself, the mother is also taking care of her new baby and her family. I know that at this time, the mother really isn’t thinking so much of taking care of herself, may not even have the time to think about it because she is so busy with the needs of others. Any time is a good time to ask for help, if it is needed. (If the mother, or you who is a mother and is reading this, are having thoughts of hurting herself and/or the baby, please do contact someone for help.)

After the pregnancy, it is a good time to come for homeopathic care. The homeopath will listen and observe the how and the what of what is bothering the mother – physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually – and then give the homeopathic remedy that is similar to this. (The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like.) The similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the healing process of the mother. It is safe for the mother to use homeopathy while breastfeeding, and is therefore safe for the baby. And, homeopathy can be used in conjunction with other healing modalities, including western medicine.

I want to add – homeopathy can be helpful and healing to a mother whether the pregnancy is new, or one that was years ago. In both cases, the mother has noticed that she has not been well since that particular pregnancy, even ones that were years ago.

*******

I would be happy to talk with that person who is “never well since pregnancy homeopathic remedy”, or any woman that is not doing well since being pregnant. Either contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Homeopathic Healing Before/During/After Pregnancy

In the community that I live in, I have been seeing more young families. Couples who have had their first child within the last two years, and now some of them are having their second child. It is fun to see these babies and families.

I am also seeing more women patients in my homeopathic practice who are pregnant and who have young children. Homeopathy is very helpful before, during, and after pregnancy. These days people are looking for safe, natural, non-toxic, and holistic healing forms of medicine for themselves, and for their families. Homeopathy fits this so well.

Having Homeopathic Treatment Before/During/After Pregnancy

When a pregnant mother has homeopathic treatment, she is helping herself as well as helping and strengthening the health of her unborn baby. And when a nursing mother is using homeopathy, the baby is also benefiting from this care. In a way, it is treating two people for the “price” of one. When the mother is healing and well, the baby will be well and healthy. Homeopathy is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

These are some of the health concerns that may bring a woman to homeopathy before, during, and after her pregnancy:

  • wanting to get pregnant/fertility issues
  • morning sickness
  • extreme fatigue
  • sleeping issues
  • chronic colds, coughs, flus
  • increased blood sugars
  • increase in blood pressure
  • skin eruptions – acne, rashes, eczema, psoriasis
  • urinary tract infections
  • emotional issues – fears, anxiousness, depression, grief, sadness
  • exasperation of an ongoing health issue  – allergies, asthma, headaches, migraines
  • postpartum depression
  • labor issues
  • recovery from vaginal births and caesarean sections
  • breastfeeding issues
  • health of the baby
  • an ongoing health concern that the mother experiences and may be receiving other treatment for. (Homeopathy works well along with allopathic/western medicine.)

It is important to receive prenatal care from a health practitioner – ob/gyn, midwife, nurse practitioner, osteopath, and/or others. Homeopathy can be used along with this care.

Two Women  

I had started to see one woman as a patient before she became pregnant, and have continued to see her throughout her pregnancy. The homeopathic care has helped with her morning sickness, extreme fatigue, heart flutterings, colds, and with what brought her originally in for homeopathy. She also sees an ob/gyn, a chiropractor and other health practitioners.

I have seen another woman off and on – before, during her pregnancy and after the baby was born. Homeopathy helped her with the original reason she came in for. It also helped her when she experienced morning sickness and wanted to increase her breast milk supply.

If you are planning on starting a family, are pregnant, or already have young children I would be happy to talk with you if there is a health concern that is bothering you. This includes fathers as well as mothers. I invite you to contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

The Flu – What To Do? Homeopathy Helps

f letterIt is just about the start of flu season. I think we very often don’t know what to do about the flu. We become scared that we may get sick. And the media often adds to that fear. Some years we hear that the the particular strain of the flu is very virulent, and then it turns out that it was a mild season. We think, I most do anything so I and my family don’t come down with the flu.

What to do?

The first thing is to take good care of yourself and your family. Rest, eat good wholesome fresh food, drink liquids, wash your hands, listen to your body, exercise, go outside and get fresh air, do activities that you enjoy.

If you do become ill, rest and sleep, drink fluids, eat if you want to, don’t eat if you don’t want, listen to what your body letter lneeds. If you do have a fever, a fever is the way your body heals itself. The heat of the body kills off the bacteria and/or virus. A fever is a good thing. Vitamin A, D and C are helpful. Homeopathy is helpful too. I think it is important to know that if someone does become ill with the flu, that there are ways to help with the healing, and not to be scared.

Homeopathy Helps During The Flu 

During the 1918-1919 influenza epidemic in the USA, homeopathic physicians recorded that those patients treated with homeopathy had a much lower mortality rate than those treated with conventional medicine.

There are homeopathic remedies that are helpful for when one feels ill from the flu. Often in a flu season, there are 2 – 3 specific homeopathic remedies that are good for that particular strain of flu. If you are not moving through the flu in a letter ureasonable amount of time, then homeopathy could be very helpful. Observe how you are feeling, and select a homeopathic remedy that is similar to how your are feeling. To read more about using homeopathic remedies if and when you come down with flu, click here to read that post.

Homeopathy Helps After The Flu

Sometimes, someone goes through the flu fine, but then there are some lingering affects. The person may tire easily. There may be a persistent cough. Their appetite may not have returned to what it was before they had become ill. Someone may feel light headed; experience aches and pains; have an off and on low grade fever; or just not feel well. This lingering experience may be longer than a few months. For example, someone may have a health condition for several years, and when asked what was going on when this condition started, the person may say I had the flu, and it was back in 2012, three years ago. Homeopathy is helpful in these kinds of situations – not well since having the flu. Click here to read more about never been well since the flu.

Homeopathy Heals

The homeopath listens to how each person experiences what bothers them. With the flu, the homeopath is hearing how the person is experiencing the flu – what their symptoms are like; their emotional state; wanting to be alone or wanting to be with company; their thirst; aches and pains; fevers and more. A homeopathic remedy is then selected that is similar to this. This similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s innate healing abilities, and the person starts to feel better. Homeopathy is safe, gentle, and non toxic. And to know too that it is safe for pregnant women and nursing mothers to use.

It is good to know that if you do become ill with the flu, homeopathy can help and heal. If you have the flu, or are experiencing lingering affects of the flu, I invite you to contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I would be very happy to talk with you.

Homeopathy Is Helpful To Use Before, During And After Pregnancy

Recently, a patient of mine asked me if one can use homeopathy when pregnant, and then she said she was pregnant. I said, yes, it is fine, and it is safe. I congratulated her, telling her how wonderful it is that she is pregnant. And that, it is a good time to do homeopathy when she is pregnant because it will help both her, and her baby.

Homeopathy Is Helpful For Moms, And Dads, – Before Pregnancy, During Pregnancy, And After Pregnancy.

By both parents, the mom and the dad, receiving homeopathic care before the pregnancy, they will also be helping the health of their future children. pregnant womanMany times in families, there are tendencies and susceptibilities towards certain health conditions that are then passed down from one generation to another. Often, people will say, asthma runs in my family, or eczema, or allergies, or depression, or as I have heard lately thyroid conditions. People will say my mother had this, or my grandfather, or my father. A tendency or susceptibility doesn’t mean that someone will definitely develop this particular health issue in the future, but they may be more prone to developing it than other people who do not have this tendency in their families. Having homeopathic treatment before pregnancy, and during pregnancy, lessens these tendencies and susceptibilities, so that they are not passed down to the next generation. Instead, it is like passing down an immunity. For couples who are thinking and planning on having a family, having homeopathic care is a good idea.

Focusing On The Mother

It is safe to use homeopathy when a woman is pregnant, The woman may be already coming in for homeopathy to help with some health concern she is experiencing, and becomes pregnant during this time, like the patient I mentioned. Or a woman may start homeopathic care because she has a health concern, and is also thinking about becoming pregnant in the near future, whether for the first time, or she already has children. Or a woman is already pregnant, and wants help with a particular health concern that has come up during the pregnancy. These are all good reasons to come to homeopathy.

Usually, a particular health issue is what bought the woman in to homeopathy, (and the dad too, if he also comes in). In addition to this concern, the homeopath also wants to know about the whole of the woman – other concerns she may have, what is stress like for her, how she experiences what bothers her, her dreams, her fears, and more. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar (Law of Similars or Like Cures Like).to what the woman is experiencing, to the wholeness of her. The homeopathic remedy stimulates her own healing process.The vital force or immune system is strengthened – the health issue is better, and she is feeling better in herself. And this helps the baby as well.

Some Health Concerns That Women Experience

Homeopathy is helpful for women before pregnancy, during pregnancy, during the delivery, postpartum, and helpful for health issues that the baby may experience. It is important to receive prenatal care from a health practitioner – ob/gyn, midwife, nurse practitioner, osteopath, and/or others. Homeopathy can be used along with this care.

Here are some of the health concerns that may bring a woman to homeopathy before, during and after pregnancy:

  • morning sickness
  • extreme fatigue
  • sleeping issues
  • chronic colds, coughs, flus
  • increased blood sugars
  • increase in blood pressure
  • skin eruptions – acne, rashes, eczema, psoriasis
  • urinary tract infections
  • emotional issues – fears, anxiousness, depression, grief
  • exasperation of an ongoing health issue  – allergies, asthma, headaches, migraines
  • postpartum depression
  • labor issues
  • recovery from vaginal births and caesarean sections
  • breastfeeding issues
  • health of the baby
  • more

Healing With Homeopathy

During pregnancies, there is the concern of safety to the baby. Homeopathic remedies are safe to use when pregnant, and when nursing the baby. There are no side effects, and the homeopathic remedies are non-toxic. The homeopathic remedy given to the woman is addressing her, her particular health concerns and how she experiences them. This puts the woman into a more healthful state, and the baby as well.  I often say that during a pregnancy, the baby and the mom share the same state.

New Born Doesn’t Want to Leave It’s Mother

I want to share this video with you. It just touches me.

It is a video of a new born baby and it’s mother. The video shows so well the connection between the mother and the baby. I say so often say that in a pregnancy, the mother and the baby share the same state. The baby knows its mother – senses her, knows her smell, her heartbeat, just her.

Homeopathy is very helpful before becoming pregnant, during pregnancies, at birth, after birth, for the newborn, for the mom, and for the dad.

Enjoy!
