Wanting To Be Heard

Wanting to be heard.

I am always reminded of this. With my patients. With my interactions with people. With myself.

We want to be heard. Sometimes we want to be agreed with, to be acknowledged, to be validated, to say out loud what is going around in our heads. to share, to just say.

When I said this to a friend, that I want to be heard, she said we want to be loved. hearts transparent

And we want a safe place to be heard.

When I meet with a patient, finding out what is bothering them, taking their case, many people talk. They usually talk about a lot of things, in addition to what brought them in to homeopathy.

Wanting to be heard:

  • A patient’s mother said to me that this is the first time someone agreed with her that there is a connection between the brain/mind/head and the gut. Her son was my patient.
  • Another patient said, this is the first time a health practitioner has really listened to what I am experiencing with my health.
  • Another asked me how do you feel about this? I answered, you are taking care of your health, and doing what you feel is right for you. I think what the person was really wanting was to open a conversation about something that was bothering them, which was how their family felt about their choices about health, not that she necessarily wanted my opinion.
  • A patient told me when she said to her husband go see Pam, it was not just for his health concern, but for someone to listen to him.
  • A man was telling me about a painful event in his life. He was filled with so many emotions, expressed on his face, through his gestures, and his words.
  • Many times a patient is given a name or a diagnosis to what they are experiencing. They have used different healing modalities, yet are not feeling better. In the homeopathic process, THEIR particular symptoms are heard, along with the general symptoms of the name/diagnosis. I would like to say that they are being heard, not the name/diagnosis.

At the beginning of the appointment, I always ask first, why are you here? What is bothering you? Often, the name or the diagnosis is stated, then the symptoms, and then more about how they experiencing this health issue. These are some of the health issues (the name or diagnosis) that have brought people in for homeopathy: warts, eczema, depression, grief, anxiety, stomachaches, nausea, hormonal issues, menstrual issues, painful to hear sounds of any kind, shingles, fatigue,sinus pressure, coughs, and flus.

I invite you to contact me about a health issue you or a loved one may be experiencing, to see if homeopathy is a healing modality you would like to pursue. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Starting A New School Year – How Will it Be?

With the start of a new school year, there are often different feelings that come up. It is natural to have feelings about a new situation and wondering how it will be. With the start of this school year, 2021, students of all ages, preschool through graduate and parents too, may be having more feelings of trepidation, uncertainty, fear, anticipation, anxiety, performance anxiety, embarrassed, worry about safety and health than usual. There may also be feelings of excitement, finally, and yay back at school.

I think for any child, and parent, there is a mixture of feelings. Wondering, how will this school year be?

I want to add that these kinds of feelings may also be experienced by people regarding their jobs. They may be starting a new job or going back to work after having been working at home.

Sometimes people – children, teenagers, adults – develop physical symptoms from having an upsetting experience or from anticipating something that may happen. The physical symptoms could be stomachaches, headaches, nausea, diarrhea, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, menstrual changes, skin eruptions, obsessive behaviors, phobias, fears, nightmares, sore throats, breathing difficulties, earaches, colds, flus, and more.

The emotional state and the physical state of a person are connected. Each are pieces making up the totality of the person. Homeopathy looks at the totality of the person.

ANXIETY

I want to specifically address anxiety. Several mothers I talked to recently suggested that I write about this regarding college age students. A thank you to these two mothers for the suggestion.

anxiety word

Very often, people who say they are feeling anxious are given a prescription medication. The prescribed medication may be relieving for a period time, but it is not healing, at the core. We use the words “anxiety” and “anxious” a lot. It is a BIG generic term/label/diagnosis, and it is treated in a generic way too, not looking at the individual and what they are experiencing. Homeopathy looks at the individual and what they are experiencing.

To ask and seek out help is a very positive, constructive action to take whether for yourself or a loved one.

I Have This _____? Can Homeopathy Help Me?

Recently, I was asked if homeopathy could help with plantar fasciitis. She said since she hadn’t read about it on my website, she wondered if homeopathy could help.

I said yes.

I was very glad she had asked about this. I thought perhaps other people may have had the same thought that homeopathy could not help them if they hadn’t read anything written about it in my information, website, blog, and newsletter. Since not seeing the name of it, they may have thought that homeopathy could not help them.

We often need to read specifically what we “have” written about, or to hear a story of someone like us using a particular healing modality before we may consider it. For example to know if homeopathy has helped someone with plantar fasciitis, then someone may look into homeopathy.

Homeopathy focuses on how the individual experiences what is bothering them. When a homeopath meets with a puzzle-14451_960_720person the general and usual symptoms of what is bothering is heard, such as with plantar fasciitis, AND, other symptoms of the individual are heard too. These symptoms can be about their emotional state, other physical symptoms they experience, mental functioning, sleep, dreams, fears and more. All of this, these pieces, are taken together to make up the totality of the person. The totality is what is focused on to heal. The plantar fasciitis is one of the pieces, or several of them.

The given homeopathic remedy is similar to this totality. The main principle of homeopathy is LIKE CURES LIKE, or The Law of Similars. The homeopathic remedy that is given is for the totality of the person, including the plantar fasciitis. This could be said for any “this is what I have”, name of a disease or syndrome that someone is experiencing, autoimmune diseases included. The “have” is a piece of the total picture. 

I find that a lot of people have been give a name to what is bothering them. They may be having treatment for it, but are not feeling better. At this point, they may be looking for other healing modalities. That is why they ask me, “I have this __________________,  can homeopathy help me?”

If there is a health issue you or a loved one are experiencing and you haven’t seen anything written about it in my information, I invite you to contact me. Let’s talk. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call or Zoom meeting to see if homeopathy is something you would want to pursue. I see people local to and outside of the San Diego area, and people of all ages, babies to older adults. You can contact me here, or on my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Being Stuck

Being stuck.

When someone is not feeling well, whether it is an acute illness or an ongoing chronic issue, they are stuck. Stuck in the symptoms they are experiencing, whether they are physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual ones. Not moving stuck-snow-carforward from the symptoms. The symptoms are not changing and the person is not feeling better. There is no movement.

For example, if someone has an acute illness such as a dry, unproductive cough that is lingering and lingering, exhausting the person, we want to see the cough starting to loosen up, becoming a more wetter type of cough. Maybe starting to cough up some mucous, and the nose starting to run. There might even be a rash. This is movement and change. Not being stuck anymore. The person is healing.

With a chronic, ongoing health issue the person lives with the symptoms. There may be flare ups or episodes, and there may times that the person feels better, but then the symptoms come back. The person may think that this will never change, accepting that this is just part of their life or how their life will be. This is being stuck.

I say often to someone who has an acute illness, we want to see change in your symptoms. We want to see movement from what you are experiencing. This is showing that you are healing, no longer being stuck. 

A lot of the patients that come to homeopathy are stuck. They are stuck in their symptoms, in their state of ill health. Whether it is skin eruptions, menstrual difficulties, anxiety/depression, fears, breathing difficulties, just not feeling well, sore throats, digestive issues, nausea, pain, arthritis, headaches …. They are stuck.

Homeopathy heals, creating movement, helping someone to become unstuck, so they can live their live fully.  

If I can be of help to you or a loved one homeopathically, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call. I work with people locally in the San Diego area and with people all over the world virtually.

I Feel Grateful – More People Are Coming To Homeopathy

My homeopathic practice has gotten busier. I like that for me. I like that for you, my patients, and for future patients. And I like that for homeopathy. 

I have always said, thought and written that there is a need for homeopathy. I think people are starting to see that homeopathy can fill a need they have. They are seeing that homeopathy can be helpful for them. Or at least starting to be more curious about it.heart in sand

I feel very grateful that people are coming. I feel grateful that they are seeing the value of homeopathy, and they are valuing themselves.

A person may be experiencing some health issue that has been bothering them for awhile. They may have used different healing modalities to help, but continue not to feel well. They want to feel better. At this time they are more open to other options for their health care. 

In my homeopathic practice, I see babies through older adults for a wide range of health issues  – anxiety, skin eruptions, women’s issues, digestive issues, headaches, pain, sleeping difficulties, fears, nervousness, colds, flus, injuries and more.

Homeopathy looks at the individual and the totality of the person. It is how the person experiences what bothers them, not the name of the syndrome or disease. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what the person is experiencing, stimulating their innate healing ability.

Homeopathy Helps Children

I see many children in my homeopathic practice – babies through teenagers.

Children respond well to homeopathy. Adults do too.

To start using homeopathy when someone is young, when they are a child, is wonderful. It is side stepping possibly many years of medications and treatments that can be very invasive. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

Homeopathy simulates the person’s innate three girlshealing ability. Children have a wonderful immune system. They have a strong vital force/vitality, and respond well to homeopathy.

These are some of the health issues that children have come to homeopathy for: 

  • anxiety – depression
  • skin eruptions – warts (you have read a recent post on this), eczema, acne
  • coronavirus
  • delayed talking
  • ADHD
  • digestive issues  – stomach aches
  • fears – ranging from a scary monster in their room to fear of losing a loved one
  • nightmares
  • difficulty sleeping
  • injuries – falls, traumas, bites, emotional or physical abuse, reactions from toxic substances in our environment, vaccines
  • ear infections, colds, fevers, coughs, sore throats
  • teething
  • thrush
  • emotional and behavioral issues
  • certain actions and behaviors – such as running away, constantly moving, fidgeting, biting, hitting
  • difficulty focusing
  • obsessiveness
  • bed wetting
  • allergies
  • respiratory issues, asthma
  • menstrual issues

Seeing A Homeopath

My job as a homeopath is to find out about the child, the totality of them. I do this through observation, listening to both the parents and the child, finding out about the child’s dreams, finding out what bothers them, asking about their likes and child-1072227_960_720dislikes, what has changed and more. With babies, who may not be talking yet,  observation plays a lot into finding out about the child. 

With all of this, I suggest a homeopathic remedy that is similar to the totality of what the child is experiencing in their symptoms. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the child’s healing process. They start to feel better. A healing starts.

Sometimes what bothers the child is not what the parents always think is bothering the child. Several years ago, I saw a boy who had a cough. The cough bothered his mother greatly. What bothered the boy was that his younger sister bossed him around all the time. “She was the boss of me”, he said. This, plus the cough and more, led me to the homeopathic remedy that helped him.

From this experience, I learned that what may bother the parent isn’t necessarily what bothers the child. Together, the information from the parent and the child, help to make the whole picture, the totality of the child.

If I can be of help to your child, or one you know and love, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15+minute Get Acquainted Call to see if this is something you would like to pursue.

Changing – Being At The Beach

This weekend I went to the beach. I walked on the beach. I waded a little bit in the water. The sun was strong, but there was a cool breeze. I had the hood of my sweatshirt up. There were ospreys flying in the sky, many of them, in a line of 8 or more. And several lines of them, flying, meeting up with each other. They were flying up and down the coast. When I last saw them, they were heading up north and then gone, I couldn’t see them anymore. I know that they would be coming south again.

I have been going to the beach more often than usual since last August. In August through October, I went in the ocean. I wanted to be in the water. Since November, I have been walking the beach. The beach is Ocean Beach, in San Diego. I Beach, Waves, Ocean, Pacific, Water, Oregon, Coast, Sealook forward to when it is warmer and I will go into the ocean again.  

Seeing the ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and the beach at different times of the year has been fascinating. It changes. Last month, in February there were huge hills of sand on the beach, to protect from storms and erosion. The sand hills were man made. And there were at least 4 feet high piles of seaweed. The seaweed and hills of sand were not there this weekend. How the beach changes, yet it is still the beach, the ocean, the tides, the birds, the waves, the shells. 

Changes. Nothing really stays the same. Things change.

We change.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

I often say to patients when they have an acute issue, like a flu or a cold, that if the symptoms are not changing or moving, you are stuck, and let’s do something homeopathically to help move things. In a way you want change, you want things to move.  A chronic ongoing health issue is being stuck, stuck in those symptoms.

Health is movement, change and being able to adapt.

Having Choices

I am for choice. To get information, so we can make choices that work and fit us regarding our health care.   choice-2692466_960_720

Historically, homeopathy has been helpful in epidemics. There usually is a group of homeopathic remedies that fit that particular epidemic. This was so with the 1918 – 1919 Spanish Flu epidemic, and it is so with the epidemic we are experiencing now. Different homeopathic remedies have come up for each of these epidemics. I wrote about this in past blog posts.

During the time we are in, homeopathy has been used all over the world to help people who have come down with the coronavirus. It has helped tremendously. Unfortunately, in mainstream news we don’t hear about how helpful homeopathy has been.

Being a homeopath, and knowing that there is help if someone comes down with the virus, gives me confidence if I, a family member, or a patient do become sick. I have seen a few patients who had coronavirus symptoms. We used the homeopathic remedies that had come up to be useful for this virus, and that fit what the person was experiencing. Homeopathy helped them a lot.

In January 2021, I saw a woman who had difficulty breathing, especially saying that too much air was coming in when she was inhaling. She said she needed to wear a mask to decrease the amount of air coming in. She had been experiencing her symptoms for about 4 weeks before I saw her. Homeopathy helped her.

If people do choose to take the vaccine, there are homeopathic remedies that can be helpful for the initial reaction, such as a sore arm, a rash, a fever, a headache, and aches and pains. Historically, homeopathy has been very helpful for those who have lingering effects from a vaccine. There is a rubric in the Homeopathic Repertory “General, Vaccinations, after”, under which quite a few homeopathic remedies are listed.

I have seen a few patients who have had the vaccine, helping them with the kinds of reactions that I listed above. We don’t know yet what the long term reactions or side effects will be from these vaccines. Homeopaths all over the world are starting to collect cases of people who have had reactions, and coming up with homeopathic remedies that will be helpful. Collecting this information regarding side effects is similar to how the information was collected regarding homeopathic remedies for this epidemic. A group of homeopathic remedies will emerge as being helpful for those who have side effects.

My knowledge and trust in homeopathy guides me. It grounds me. I know there is help for those who are sick; those who come down with the coronavirus; those who don’t take the vaccine; and those who may experience side effects from the vaccine.

Having a choice is important. Choose what works for you. Do your research. I want to add, don’t come from fear.

Continue taking care of yourself by eating well, getting good rest, taking vitamins, being outside in the sunshine, being with people you enjoy, and doing activities you love. All these help to boost your immune system. We have a wonderful innate ability to heal.

Helping A Boy With Warts

I want to tell you about George. He is six years old. He never stops moving. He is opinionated. He is the youngest of three boys. In December 2020, I met his mother. Honestly she wasn’t looking for me, nor was she a believer in homeopathy, however, she was at her wits-end trying to find a solution to the warts on George’s hands, elbows, knees, legs and recently his right eyelid.

She had tried every traditional treatment and in July 2020, when she was unavailable to take George to his third treatment with his third doctor, her husband took him. George received two rounds of dry-ice burning and direct injections into the largest warts on his fingers and knees. Although George was strong and fought back the tears, his Dad couldn’t, and when he arrived home he told his wife that he didn’t know what they were going to do, but this was never going to happen to his son again.

Okay, so back to George’s mother meeting me and scheduling an appointment because she was ready to try anything.

George, his mother and I, met virtually on December 12th. I suggested one homeopathic remedy to be taken on the night of the 14th and the morning of the 15th.    

warts-on-hand

At that time, this was what his warts looked like. Note, that his mother didn’t bother to take many pictures or wash his hands because she still thought it was a waste of time.

This is what the hands looked like on February 11th. The warts are completely gone and the skin continues to heal. We also changed the remedy on January 29th.

It is my passion to work with people to support them to naturally and safely heal.
