Allergies – Homeopathy Heals

Allergies.

Many people experience allergies:

  • They experience sneezing, itchy nose and ears, eyes watering and tearing, nasal and  woman blowing nosesinus congestion, difficulty breathing, closing off of the windpipe, stomach aches, diarrhea, itchy skin, or skin eruptions.
  • The allergic reaction can be from dust, cat dander, pollen, foods (milk, nuts, peanuts, shellfish, strawberries), clothing, bees, mosquitoes, toxins in our environment, latex, and medicines (Penicillin, Sulfa, Erythromycin).
  • It can be a one time event, as in a bee sting, eating a certain food, or using a certain medicine. From that time on, exposure to these substances are avoided.
  • For some, the allergic reaction can be life threatening, such as with a food allergy, peanut-995053_960_720like peanuts or shellfish.
  • The allergic reaction could be seasonal, occurring at a particular time of year, such as spring time with hay fever. But they can also occur periodically during other seasons.
  • People watch their diets, avoiding the foods that they are allergic to or have a sensitivity to.
  • Babies may show an allergy/sensitivity to some foods, such as milk and other dairy products. A reaction may manifest as having digestive issues, nasal congestion and/or eczema, which may continue through their childhood and adult years.

(If there is the potential of a life threatening allergic reaction, it is always good to avoid being exposed to that substance, and to be prepared if there is a reaction by using  western medications and treatments. It is always good to be vigilant, cautious, and pro-active about the allergy, especially if it is life threatening.)

Healing With Homeopathy

I have noticed in my practice that people who experience allergies, have been experiencing them for many years. The allergy usually seems to affect the person at a certain time of the year. Someone may have come in for homeopathic care for a particular health concern, not necessarily allergies, and as they are healing the allergies are also getting better. They are not having the periodical/seasonally reaction. Or, their sensitivity to a certain food becomes less. Homeopathy is always addressing the whole person, and that is what heals, the whole person. As the person becomes healthier, the sensitivity/allergy becomes less bothersome.

One patient of mine experiences a seasonal skin eruption during the February/March months. The skin eruptions were on both of her arms and was extremely itchy. As she was healing with homeopathy, each year this skin eruption became less and less. This last time, the skin eruption was on one of the arms and was not itchy at all.

People Showing An Interest in Homeopathy, And Wanting To Know More

A lot of people I talk to have used the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana. Actually, I think Arnica montana is what  150 - boiron arnicaintroduces a lot of people to homeopathy.

What I Hear From People Who Have Used Arnica Montana

People tell me that they use Arnica montana for all different kinds of situations. One woman has used it when she had sprained her ankle. Another woman mentioned that her friend used Arnica montana when they had knee surgery. A mom has said they she uses Arnica montana when her child falls down at the playground. And a man has said that his dentist very often suggests that he use Arnica montana after he has had dental work, such as a filling or an extraction. In all of these situations, Arnica montana has helped. (Click here to read a blog about Arnica montana.)

When I am talking with someone who has a sprained or strained their arm. leg, ankle or wrist, and they have used Arnica montana, I may mention the homeopathic remedy Ruta grav. Often, this remedy is new to the person. They have not heard of it before. And I may mention that it is better to use homeopathy orally, in pellet form, than to use it topically as a cream or ointment, such as ArnicaGel. Generally, homeopathy is used orally, which promotes a deep healing.

And then I say, there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies.

Over 4000 Homeopathic Remedies

People don’t know that there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies. And it isn’t important that they do know. They know of Arnica montana, and maybe they know of a few other homeopathic remedies, and have used them for a stomach ache, indigestion, pain, a cold, or a fever. They have seen 50 homeopathic remedies at their local health food store. People purchase them, self treat, going by what is printed on the label.

Why I mention that there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies is that there is so much more to homeopathy than helping with bruising, traumas, falls, surgeries, which Arnica montana is so helpful for. Homeopathy does help in first aid and acute care, like colds, flus, stomach aches, AND, homeopathy is so helpful for chronic conditions, where other forms of healing, including western conventional medicine has not helped.

So when I say there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies, what I am saying is – you, who have used homeopathy and it has helped, and you who have shown an interest in homeopathy, why not see how homeopathy can be helpful for other health concerns that you or your loved ones may experience. Such as:

  • chronic ear infections, sore throats, stomach aches, colds.
  • on going nightmares and/or fears.
  • a child who is having difficulty at school in terms of behavior, focusing, or paying attention.
  • bedwetting.
  • menstrual difficulties.
  • migraines and other types of headaches.
  • depression, anxiety, fearfulness, difficulty getting out of the house.
  • skin eruptions – eczema, psoriasis, warts, moles, rashes.
  • digestive issues.
  • fatigue, no energy, tires easily.
  • respiratory difficulties – asthma.
  • allergies – seasonal, foods.
  • muscular aches and pains.
  • not well since.
  • just not feeling well.

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy treats the individual person. To me this one of the wonderful aspects of homeopathy. Homeopathy is truly a spiral of colorsmedicine of the individual. The homeopathic practitioner (the homeopath), through observation, listening, questioning, is finding out how each person experiences their particular health concern. Two people can come in for homeopathic treatment, each having the similar complaint, let say headaches, but underneath, deep down to the root cause, each of these two people experience their headache uniquely to them, and differently from each other. The homeopath is hearing, listening and observing each person.

A homeopathic remedy is given, that is similar to what the person is experiencing. The homeopathic remedy is for the individual. This remedy, one out of 4000, stimulates the person’s own wonderful healing ability. The person is feeling better, their immune system is stronger, and what brought the person in is getting better, such as the headaches, from the example I gave.

I write this blog to educate, to deepen, and to broaden people’s knowledge of homeopathy. I invite those who already have an interest in homeopathy; those who have used homeopathy, finding it helpful; and those who are new to homeopathy and have an interest in holistic medicine, to see how homeopathy can be of help in yours and your loved ones healing. Contact me here through my blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I would be happy to talk with you, I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

“Listening Through” To Really Hear What Bothers The Person

People come to homeopathy for all sorts of reasons. For physical complaints, like asthma, arthritis, digestive issues, headaches, menstrual issues, and allergies. For emotional issues, like fears, anxiety, depression, anger, and grief. For mental issues, like difficulty focusing and memory loss.  And for other concerns. Whatever the reason is that brings someone to homeopathy, it is always where the person is listened to, heard, and seen for who he is, and for what bothers him. Lately, I have been calling this “listening through”.

Not Being Bogged Down In The Story

Listening through. It is not getting bogged down into the literalness of what the person is saying, Not getting involved in the story, the specficness of the story, or the characters the person is talking about. Not getting involved in the emotionality of the story. It is rather, what is the story expressing? What is the sensitivity that this person experiences, that is expressed in this story? Someone may be talking about their brother-in-law, or their boss in the story. The person is really talking about himself. What is the sensitivity here, that is being expressed through the brother-in-law or the boss?

Hand Gestures

Listening through. It is also watching, observing and seeing where the emphasis of what bothers the person is being expressed. This is done often by hand gestures, recurring hand gestures. The hand gestures are showing that what the person is saying is important, that it is expressive of their state of what is bothering them. For example, a patient of mine, was talking about the pain she experiences in her hands, and as she was talking about it, she was making a hand gesture of tightly closing her hands together and then opening them up. I asked, what is that that you are doing? Tell me more. It is squeezing, she said, a sensation of tightening, tightening really tight, squeezing.

The gestures could also be facial expressions, or bigger movements, such as continually moving around in their seat or moving around the room. Another patient of mine, a young girl, crawled and crept around my consultation room, going behind the chairs, under the desk, and into the corners of the room.

All of these kinds of movements – hand gestures, facial expressions, larger movements – are expressive of the person.

Learning The Person’s Language

scrabble-243192__180Listening through. It is also learning the person’s language, Deciphering their code. Getting to know their language, their use of words and their movements. What do they mean by the words and expressions they use? It is not interpreting. It is learning what the person means by the words or expressions spoken. That is why I often ask, tell me more about what this (word) means to you, or what is the experience or sensation of this “word” for you. I know what the word means for me, but I don’t know what it means for the person.

And some of what someone is saying will not make sense in terms of our every day use of language. The person is speaking their language, which is expressive of what is bothering them.

Listening Through

Listening through. Listening to. Listening openly. Listening without prejudice. Listening without judgement. It is listening to the person to understand them as an individual, and from that to give a homeopathic remedy that is similar to all of it. The homeopathic remedy stimulates their healing.

Healing With Homeopathy

Is there a place where you feel you are being listened through? That what is bothering you in your health is really understood and seen?  That is what homeopathy does. Please contact me here through my blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com to talk further. I have a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call.

Homeopathy Helps Men With Their Health

I write so much about women and children in my blog posts. I thought it would be good to write specifically about men, and how homeopathy has helped men in their health.

The inspiration to write this post came from a very short conversation I had with a man at a meeting I attended several weeks ago. I had mentioned to him that I had written a blog post recently saying that women don’t put themselves on the list; that women are busy taking care of others and don’t take care of themselves. He said that women DO take care of themselves. They are always taking care of themselves. It is men who don’t take care of themselves. I asked, why? Why don’t men take care of themselves? Because of weakness. They don’t want to appear weak, he said. Another man, who I spoke to recently, said that men don’t take care of themselves until there is something big. It is interesting to me to hear this.

Men Do Come In For Homeopathy

I do see men in my practice. Perhaps for some of these men, young and old, their coming in was from the urgings of their mother, girlfriend, wife, child, or partner. That may be so, but some men did come in on their own. There was always something in particular that was bothering each of the men, whether a physical complaint, an emotional complaint, a behavioral complaint, a work compliant or something else. This complaint was our start, where we began during the homeopathic consultation. I would want to hear more of what this complaint was like for this man, how he experienced it, along with hearing about his dreams, what he likes to do, what his work is like, his fears, how he handles stress, and more.

Homeopathy looks at each person as an individual, and looks at the whole of this individual. A homeopathic remedy that is similar to all of this, is selected. This homeopathic remedy stimulates the man’s own healing process; it promotes a self-healing. The complaint that brought the man in is better, and he is better in himself, handling what happens in his life in a more constructive way.

Some Of My Patients 

Here are a few of the men I have seen in my homeopathic practice. I write what brought them in, but there is more to each of their cases than what I have written here.

men– a man in his 60’s who experienced unbearable and ongoing itching from a rash in his groin area.

– a teenage boy who experienced seizures very often.

– a 50-year-old man who had chronic colds, and nasal congestion. He was taking antibiotic after antibiotics for these colds.

– a man who had rosacea on his face. He worked physically close to people as a practitioner, and was concerned how his appearance appeared to his patients.

– a man in his 20’s who had eczema on his arms. He too was concerned how others viewed him. He covered up his arms most of the time.

– a man who suffered from PTSD after serving in Iraq. He had difficulty sleeping. He would have angry outbursts very often, and would confront other people in a very angry way.

– a 51-year-old man who had sinus infections with the sensation of a plug in his nose. He was afraid that he was losing his job, and would have to start all over again.

– a 50ish man. He described having the feeling of entrapment in his life,. He had difficulty breathing and shortness of breath. He was concerned about what will happen to his aging parents and his children. He said, he had a general lack of well-being.

– a 15-year old teenager who had panic attacks.

Other Health Issues

The following is a list of some health issues that a man may be experiencing.

  • autoimmune illnesses – arthritis, MS
  • emotional issues – fears, anxiety, depression, prolonged grief, angry outbursts
  • heart conditions
  • respiratory illnesses – asthma, shortness of brief
  • sexual dysfunction
  • digestive issues – bloating, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, indigestion
  • headaches and migraines

  • urinary and bladder infections, painful or difficult urination
  • muscular aches and pain
  • memory loss, loss of concentration, restlessness
  • not recovered from an injury

  • what is bothering you

Healing With Homeopathy

It doesn’t matter how a man comes to homeopathy. It is just good that the man has come in. If you, or a man who you love or care for, is having a health concern, please look into how homeopathy can be of help to 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.

If I can be of help for an upcoming pregnancy, an existing pregnancy, or health concern after a pregnancy, please contact me here through my blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a 15+ complimentary Get Acquainted Phone Call.

Women Taking Care Of Themselves, With Homeopathy

This post is about women, about women of all ages taking care of themselves. So often, women, and especially moms, don’t really take care of themselves. As I used to say when my sons were younger, I wasn’t even on the list.

Women are so busy taking care of their family members, friends and coworkers, and not always themselves. I have previously written a blog post about caregivers, and another blog post about moms being my ideal patient , which you may want to read. The post on moms, talks about how they are the hub, the center of the family, making sure everyone is taken care of. Now it is time for moms, for all women, young, old, middle-aged to take care of themselves.

Some Of The Women I Have Seen

In my practice, I have seen women of all ages and for various health concerns. There usually is some specific reason that has brought the woman in to see me – a physical complaint, an emotional issue, an ongoing health concern. In addition to this specific reason, there is her, the woman, and how she responds and feels on all levels (physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually) to what has happened in her life. Homeopathy addresses the whole of her. Through listening, observing, and understanding what is at the core of what is bothering her, a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what she is experiencing, to the totality of her. The homeopathic remedy stimulates her own healing process, strengthening her vital force or immune system, healing the specific reason why she came in, and also healing the totality of her.

Here is a little bit about some of the woman who have come in to see me for homeopathic care. Please know there is more to each of these women than what I have written here.

– a 19-year-old, who has very heavy periods, with severe cramping.                                                                                          grandma-612016_640

–  a woman going through menopause, who has hot flashes at night, making it difficult for her to sleep and then not feeling rested the next day at work. Having very emotional responses to experiences and situations in her life. Crying more.

– a woman in her 60’s who has had migraines for most of her life. Still having them after going through menopause.

– a woman figuring out what to do with her life. Has depressive types of thoughts. Taking care of her family. Asking herself, what can I do?

young girl–  a woman who is very involved in the workings of her family’s business. Experiences severe arthritic type pains in her hands, that she describes as a squeezing sensation. Has these pains more often when she is cleaning, using water. Very concerned on how the house is kept.

–  a woman who experiences discomfort when having sexual relations with her husband. She is not really happy in the relationship.

–  a woman who always has had someone helping her. Now she is a widow, and learning how to take care of herself, along with going through grieving for her husband.

– a young girl who has trouble sleeping, experiencing nightmares that keep her awake. During the day she is very irritable.

Some Of The Health Concerns Women Experience

Below is what may have brought the woman in for homeopathic care. Nothing is in isolation, as my teachers have said. Symptoms are not treated separately. It is the totality of the woman who is addressed, and the totality heals.

  • menstrual issues – cramps, PMS, bloating, headaches, late periods, heavy flow, clots, perimenopause, menopause, hot flashes, insomnia, other symptoms related that may come up or are exasperated during the menstrual cycle
  • digestive issues – bloating, constipation, diarrhea, food allergies and sensitivities, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease
  • sleep issues – insomnia, frequent waking, difficulty falling asleep, nightmares
  • pain – muscular, arthritic, nerve, acute or chronic, from an old injury
  • headaches – migraines, allergies, seasonal
  • anxiety, depression, ongoing grief, fears, phobias, focusing issues, memory issues
  • skin eruptions – eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, warts
  • respiratory – asthma, shortness of breath
  • emotional states – sadness, anger, outbursts
  • autoimmune illnesses – chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, polymyalgia
  • what is bothering you?

An observation: it may be that we women always have a cycle. Whether we are actually menstruating, or not menstruating. Whether we are pregnant, or have gone through menopause. This “cycle” time may be when a symptom, a feeling, a thought, a state of being, a health concern, or what bothers us, is more prevalent or more intense than usual.

Healing With Homeopathy

Take care of yourself. Whatever age you are – young girl through older, wise woman; gay or straight; single, married or divorced; mom or not a mom. Take care of yourself.
