I recently was invited to be part of a Summit on Teens, called THE MID-SEMESTER REFRESH, to talk about homeopathy. I will be giving an overview of homeopathy and how it can be helpful for families and their health. This event is organized and created by Jessyka Coulter, a Study Skills Tutor. Jessyka has brought together over 20 speakers to talk about various topics regarding teens, their health and their families health, how they learn, support for them and more. The event is being held online from October 24th to the 30th. Click here to see the other speakers and to sign up for this free event. I feel excited to be part of this event, and to be talking about homeopathy and families.
The following is a blog post I wrote a while ago about families using homeopathy. I wanted to share it with you again, having added a few thoughts.
In my homeopathic practice, I often work with families, seeing several people in the family: the children, one or both of the parents, and a grandparent. I really enjoy working with families, and getting to know them. Recently, a friend said to me that working with families may be my niche.
Healing – The Family
Usually it is one of the children who starts to see me. As they are doing better, a sibling, a parent, or another family member starts to come in for homeopathic care. By working with the different members of the family, I see the interactions, the similarities, the differences between the family members, and the medical history of the family. Just as each of us are a whole to ourselves, and the symptoms we experience are pieces of this whole, the family is a whole, and each member of the family is a piece of this whole.
Often, there is a family member that is not doing well. Sometimes, they have become the center of attention for the whole family. As this family member starts to feel and do better in their health, other family members can now pay attention to and take care of themselves. It is as if the other family members were holding back, focusing so much on this one family member that needed so much, and now the other family members can focus on themselves, their needs, and their health. By helping one family member is actually helping and focusing on the whole of the family’s health.
Health Concerns Family Members Experience
These are some of the health concerns that members of a family have come to homeopathy for:
- pains in the abdomen before menses
- chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia
- difficulty with vision
- tantrums, acting out
- sleep difficulties
- earaches, congestion, fevers, coughs
- broken bones, fractures
- skin eruptions and skin feeling very sensitive, warts, eczema
- breathing difficulties – asthma
- depression and anxiety, with pains in the stomach
- digestive issues
- reaction to a vaccine
- menstrual issues – menopause
- sore throats
- migraines and headaches
- feeling very chilled
Usually, it is a chronic condition that brings the first family member into homeopathy. Then another family member comes in for a chronic, an acute or first aid issue. Homeopathy becomes part of their health care resources, along with western medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, therapy and other healing modalities.
