Not Doing

I missed sending the blog post last week. I have been sick. I am starting to feel better. It has been a slow process.

I used homeopathy. Took vitamins. Slept. Got some fresh and sun. Stayed low. Cancelled appointments. Two friends did some grocery shopping for me. So thankful. It is not easy for me to ask for help.

I was very tired, and had such little energy. I had run a fever before this.

In my posts, I talk about that it is okay to be sick. That it is our body, our being telling us to slow down. And it is okay. Yet, it was difficult. I felt very discouraged, depressed, sad, anxious, quite honestly.

Before I had gotten sick, I felt that there was so much to do. OVERWHELMINGLY things to do. Almost feeling panicky about needing to get things done. Whether that was true or not, doesn’t matter. It is how I felt. I still have this feeling, somewhat less. I wonder if my being sick was a way to say, hey don’t do. These things can wait. Take care of you.

I am starting to pace myself. Slowly starting to do things. Seeing patients virtually. I have only seen two so far. Pacing is what keeps coming up. And saying, yes, there may be things to do and get done. And they can wait.

In a way, I am hoping that my learning, or being forced to learn, that things can wait will carry over. And to pace myself. And to listen to what I need, on all levels.

Sitting and just sitting. Being, just being. I have been lying on my back on the ground under my wonderful Mulberry Tree.

I often talk about the body, the being, the vital force having a wonderful ability to heal itself. Sometimes it takes time. We may not like to hear that. I know I don’t.

Present Moment

This is a quote from Pema Chodron. I used this quote in a previous post –BE Where You Are. I wanted to use this quote again.

Welcome the present moment as if you had invited it. It is all we ever have so we might as well work with gull in flightit rather than struggle against it. We might as well make it our friend and teacher rather than our enemy.”

I like what she says about working with and making the present moment your friend. To use it. To learn from it. To see what it has to offer.  

PRESENT MOMENT

When I see a patient, I am seeing how they are in their present moment. Past illnesses, traumas, emotional upsets, older physical symptoms along with symptoms or the health issue they brought the patient make up this present moment. I call this present moment, the totality of the person. Totalities change, just like present moments change. 

The present moment is where we start. It is an unfolding process. Often a series of homeopathic remedies are used as the healing process unfolds. The unfolding reflects a deeper understanding of what the person is experiencing. Each homeopathic remedy helps in this process, moving it along.  

THIS PAST YEAR

Over this past year of 2021, I have seen people of all ages, 9 months to 81 years, for many different health issues. Some people sought out homeopathic care for physical issues, and some for emotional issues. Very often, the physical and the emotional issues are interwoven. All the symptoms are part of the totality of the person.  

These are some of the health issues that brought people in for homeopathic care during this year of 2021. issues: 

Warts
Coronavirus
Menstrual issues
Chronic pain
Digestive issues
Grief
Reaction to vaccines
Insomnia
Extreme pain and sensitivity to noise and sounds
Shingles
Concussion
Fatigue
Flu
Hemorrhoids
Nausea
Stomachaches
Anxiety
Eczema
First aid – healing from a surgery, fall, cut on an arm
A trauma – emotional, physical
Coughs
Internal bleeding

Just not feeling well

Flu – Taking Care Of Yourself

Wishing you all a happy HOLIDAY SEASON!

At this time of year we start to hear about the flu. We are also hearing about a new variant of the coronavirus.

Homeopathy has always been helpful for someone who has the flu. It also has been helpful for people who have come down with any of the strains of the coronavirus. Historically, homeopathy has been helpful during pandemics. This was so during the 1918- 1919 Spanish Flu.

Usually, when there is an epidemic, and also during a flu season, specific homeopathic remedies are used for the particular strain of flu or for the epidemic at that time. This has been so with the coronavirus epidemic that we have been going through, whether it is with having come down with the virus; having lingering, long haul types of symptoms; or experiencing side effects from the vaccines.

Taking Care Of Yourself 

It is always good to take care of yourself. Taking care of yourself can mean a lot of different things:beach-690125_960_720

  • Using different healing modalities  – chiropractic, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, homeopathy, vitamins, western medicine.
  • Exercising – going for walks or hikes, yoga, swimming.
  • Being in nature. (I love the beach.)
  • Pursuing activities you love.
  • Eating good, organic, nourishing foods.
  • Sleeping well and feeling rested.
  • Laughing and smiling.
  • Being with people you love.
  • Checking in with yourself. Being aware of your thoughts and feelings.
  • Having a spiritual practice. This can be a lot of different things, even some of what is listed above.

“HEY SLOW DOWN”

Sometimes, though, even with taking care of yourself, you may become ill. It is okay to be sick. I think we have come to the thinking that being sick is not good. When we are sick or not feeling well, it is our body, our vital force, telling us “Hey, slow down. I am making you slow down.” When we are sick, we do slow down, rest and take the the time to care for ourselves.

Our bodies have a wonderful ability to heal itself. Sometimes we need a little help. Homeopathy assists the body in its own healing. The symptoms that a person is experiencing is the way the person is trying to heal themselves. Sometimes the person gets stuck in these symptoms. The homeopath uses the symptoms as a guide to help select the homeopathic remedy that fits the person, that is similar to the person. This is Like Cures Like or The law of Similars, which is one of the main principles of homeopathy. The given homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing, getting them unstuck. Sometimes a series of homeopathic remedies are needed, using one at a time, as the person moves through the healing process.

Health – Being Who You Are

This is a post I wrote over 5 years ago. I have changed a few things in it. I wanted to share it again with you. 

I want to wish you all a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving. I am very thankful for all of you who are interested and want to know more about homeopathy. 

*******

One day, when I was sitting in my consultation room, I heard a sound outside the patio door. I looked outside, and there in the mulberry tree was a little bird. It was a bird I had never seen before. It was maybe 7 inches long. It’s back had a black and white pattern. It’s head was bright red. It was pecking at the tree. It walked from one place to another, pecking. I watched the bird for awhile. I had had the tree cut back recently, which I do every year, so the tree was very bare and open. That is why I could see the bird so clearly.

ladder back woodpeckerI immediately looked on the internet to see what kind of bird it was. It was a Ladder Back Woodpecker, which is native to the southwest. The black and white pattern reflected a ladder, in a way. The next day, the bird or its friend, came back, pecking on my tree.

I was thinking as I was watching this bird, that it was doing what it knows how to do. It was being itself – looking for food, and perhaps it found some food, and then moving on to find more. It was being who it is.

What We Want

That is really what we all want –  we want to be who we truly are – to love, to be loved, to do work that we enjoy, to enjoy our lives, to enjoy our relationships with friends and family. And to be healthy so we can do and be these things. To be who we are.

A health issue may make it difficult for a person to take part in their life. These are some of what may bother people to the extent that it affects their life. They can’t truly be who they are.

  • Feeling tired all the time.
  • Needing to know where the bathrooms are located when she goes out, because she has chronic diarrhea.
  • Needing to watch very strictly what he eats.
  • Not having an appetite and feeling nausea all the time.
  • Continuing to experience pain and discomfort in his hands since an accident.
  • Ongoing flare ups of breathing difficulties.
  • Feeling anxious and fearful for herself and her loved ones.
  • Constantly scratching his arms.
  • Skin eruptions.
  • Being very sensitive to sounds.
  • Experiencing headaches.
  • Feeling fearful.
  • Lingering effects from a trauma or illness – a fall; an emotional upset or loss; surgery; the flu or coronavirus (long haul): a vaccine reaction.

Healing – Being Who You Are – Being You

With homeopathic care, the whole person is healing. The health issue that brought the person in for homeopathic care is better, AND, the person is feeling better in themselves.

One woman came to homeopathy because she was experiencing flutterings of her heart. These became less, and she was feeling more energetic. She was able to do more activities during the day and had more energy to do these activities. She said she was feeling like herself again. I could see this in her face.

It is not that the person is changed when having homeopathic care; it is that they can be more of who they are. They are no longer feeling bogged down and hindered with a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual health issue, which has been limiting how they live their life and how they interact in the world. As they are healing, they become more of themselves, just as the bird was pecking on my tree, being who he was, the person is being who they are.

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.

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.
