Are You Experiencing Lingering Effects From A Trauma?

I have written  about traumas before, and have talked about the use of the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana in many of my posts when there has been a trauma.

Recently, when I was with a friend, we were talking about traumas, physical and emotional ones. And that often there can be lingering effects from the trauma, such as a person having chronic pain, flare up of certain symptoms, feeling emotionally  distressed, regressing in behaviors and development, and more.

Traumas

A trauma can be physical and emotional. Some physical traumas can be from surgeries, giving birth, falls, vaccine reactions, accidents, and experiencing a down and outnatural disaster. Some emotional traumas could be the loss of a loved one through death, an illness, or a divorce; the experience of war; the experience of abuse, emotionally and physically; the experience of loss of a job or home; being in a natural disaster; and exposure to toxins in the air, water, soil, or environment.

(I have natural disasters in both categories. We are seeing more of them occurring.)

The person may have sought out help at the time of the trauma or soon afterwards,  and may have also used homeopathy.  The trauma may have been looked at as a first aid situation, looking at taking care of what has happening at that present time. And the help that the person received was beneficial to them. Yet, for some people there may be a lingering from the trauma, showing up in physical symptoms, emotional states of anxiety, fear, sadness or depression, or a feeling of just not being well.  The person may even say, I have not been well since “this” happened.

When I meet with a patient, I often ask what was going on when this (the symptoms or state of not being well) started.  In a way, I am looking for a cause. A cause in the sense that this may be the initiator, the start, to why they are not feeling well.

In My Practice

These are some of the traumas, and lingering states I have seen in my practice:

  • a woman who had two c-sections. A lot of scar tissue developed, and she experienced a lot of pain and discomfort during her menstrual cycle.
  • a concussion from a car accident. The woman experienced vertigo and difficulty focusing and the use of computers was very difficult for her.
  • a woman who was exposed to toxins after being in an area where there had been fires.
  • a boy who had reactions to vaccines.
  • a woman who lost her her husband, and was deeply grieving.
  • a man who hasn’t been well since having the flu.

Healing

In a lot of circumstances, healing takes time. We don’t always want to hear that it takes time. We want to feel better right now.  We don’t like to not feel well.

When we experience a trauma, it may affect us on many levels, and it may also bring up states and feelings we had experienced in the past. We may use different healing modalities to help us, such as homeopathy, message, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, energy body work, therapy, chiropractic, western medicine and more. The healing is a process, and in some ways it can be a deep learning experience about ourselves.

A Trauma – Homeopathy Heals

Homeopathy is very helpful for any kind of trauma – a fall, from an accident, a head injury or a concussion, a broken bone, a surgery, a deep cut, dental work, a sprained car-accident-98760_960_720muscle, an emotional upset or loss, an abuse, a wartime experience, an overdose of medications/drugs and more. At these times, homeopathic remedies can be used to help as in first aid care. The homeopathic remedy Arnica montana is very helpful. (Read more about Arnica montana.)

The Affects After A Trauma

Sometimes, the trauma takes a longer time to heal than might have been expected. There may be lingering affects or symptoms, or even an exasperation of a health issue may arise after having experiencing a trauma. These after affects manifest in different ways, such as in:

  • behavioral changes – withdrawal, angry outbursts, tantrums
  • bad dreams, nightmares or night terrors, (day terrors too)
  • difficulty sleeping
  • fears and phobias
  • eating disorders
  • anxiousness, depression, lethargy, fatigue
  • sadness and weeping
  • particular physical symptoms – headaches, vertigo, digestive issues, skin eruptions, respiratory and breathing difficulties, eye strain, memory loss, difficulty focusing
  • not able to do tasks that were done before – physical and mental tasks
  • a feeling of not being oneself – “I am not the way I was before the trauma or accident”
  • difficulties in personal relationships

Someone may say, I have done different healing modalities. These modalities have helped me, but I am not back to where I was before the accident. There is about 20% that is not healed. I am not 100% myself, the way I was before the accident. And I notice this (20%) when I do certain activities. I still feel discomfort. I have this particular pain when I do a certain task. I can’t go out and meet people. I have no energy. I can’t attend and focus on my activities and work. I get so angry.

In My Homeopathic Practice

scene of waterI see people in my homeopathic practice who have experienced a trauma – a physical, an emotional, and a situational one. I see people of all ages for this – young children through older adults. The trauma can be new, and the trauma can be old. Homeopathy has helped and healed these people.

The initial “hurt” of the trauma, how the person responded to the trauma, how it has affected their life, what changes have occurred, how they experience the “hurt” of the trauma are all important. In addition to this, the homeopath learns about the individual person – their history, their sensitivities, their fears, what bothers them, their dreams and more. All of this adds to the whole and the totality of the person.

By addressing the wholeness of the person, and not just only the trauma, a deep healing can occur. It is no longer a first aid situation; it has become more of a chronic state that the person is experiencing. Addressing the whole person may be what is needed for someone who has had a trauma to experience a deep and lasting healing.
