Unwanted Behaviors – Such As Biting

On the stats page of my blog, there is a section labelled Search Terms. What is listed there are googled inquires that have led someone to my blog. Recently, someone had googled “biting from anger homeopathy”. I felt that this was an important topic to write about: biting and other unwanted behaviors.

Biting And Unwanted Behaviors

The person who googled this concern may be the person themselves, a family member or a friend of someone who is biting. It could be a child or an adult who is manifesting this behavior. The person could be biting themselves, and/or biting others. This could happen when they are feeling sand-spiralangry, and is expressed outwardly at another person or expressed inwardly, by biting themselves. There may be other emotions, behaviors and symptoms associated with this behavior.

You can see that it is not just simply one thing – someone biting or someone feeling angry. This behavior, like any behavior that is unwanted, obsessive, or uncontrollable, is a piece or a part of the whole picture of the person. Everything is connected, making up the totality and the whole of the person.

These are some other behaviors that may be unwanted, obsessive and uncontrollable:

  • biting, kicking, hitting, pinching
  • self-destructive behaviors: cutting, over eating, not eating enough, bulimia
  • obsessive/compulsive behaviors – washing hands, checking locks and other things excessively, hording

Two Examples Of Biting

To continue the thought that it isn’t simply one thing, biting or being angry, here are two examples of biting and anger. You can see how different these two are. Biting or unwanted behaviors could be an expression of anger, fear, a way of defending oneself and a response to pain. For example:

  • A teething baby could be biting because of the pain and discomfort felt in their gums. The biting actually may ease the pain. The baby may be expressing anger from being in such intense pain.
  • A child feels threatened, and feels they need to lash out and defend themselves. This lashing out may manifest in biting.

Homeopathy

To address the second part of the inquiry – “biting from anger homeopathy” – yes, homeopathy can be very helpful when someone is biting and/or someone is feeling very angry. When I meet with a patient, I am finding out about what bothers them, which is what brought them in to homeopathy. In this case, I would want to know how the person experiences biting and feeling anger, along with finding out more about them as a whole, such as other symptoms, fears, dreams, how they respond to things happening in their life and more. All of these are pieces that make up a whole picture.

From this whole picture, a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what they are experiencing. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process.

I want to say that homeopathy is not counseling, therapy nor any kind of psychological treatment. Homeopathy is its own form of holistic medicine, looking at each person as the individual they are. Homeopathy and counseling/therapy can work very well together, helping and healing the individual. Each of these two healing modalities addresses and helps a person in different ways.

I would be happy to talk to you or a loved one who may be experiencing biting or any other unwanted behaviors. Contact me here on the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Our Triggers

Events happen in our lives. Events that are personal, political, and global. These events may trigger emotions, feelings, thoughts, behaviors, symptoms, physical states, and memories. Our buttons have been pushed. It is natural that this happens.

As we experience this, we may in a way take a look at what is happening. How do we feel? What are our responses, and what are we responding to? Are we reacting to the present or to the past? Does this event remind us of something or someone that we know? What actions or no actions do we take?

We may be just affected for a brief time, and then feel better. Or the affect may linger, and balls-knocking-into-ballswe are not able to move forward at all. We are stuck, with whatever has been triggered within us, affecting us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This is a good time to take care of ourselves.

In My Practice

As a patient tells me what is bothering them, often a physical complaint, I hear about events and relationships that have happened to them in their life. They may be talking about present or post relationships or events. No matter when this occurred in time, it still is affecting them, and triggering them.

As the person is talking and describing their experience, specific words and language are used, often accompanied with hand gestures. The person’s words/language/hand gestures represent what and where their sensitivity lies, and how they experience their world. In a way I am learning the person’s language, which helps me to better understand their world, how they experience what happens to them, and what it is that bothers them about their symptoms.

Two Women

One woman is experiencing pains in her neck and shoulder. The pains are almost all the time. She accepts the pains, and has experienced them most of her life. She talks about an old relationship. In some ways this relationship is still present because of her connection to this person through other people. Recently there has been more of a connection with this person. This has been a trigger. What she says and shows helps guide me as a homeopath in selecting the homeopathic remedy that will be healing for her. The homeopathic remedy will be for her emotional state, and for the neck and shoulder pains she experiences. Homeopathy treats the whole person.

Another woman has a flare up of an abscess in scar tissue. This seems to happen when she is feeling angry at others, at herself, and/or what happens in her life. She takes it out on herself, feeling very angry about herself and her life. Often some event or interaction will happen, triggering something within her, and then manifesting in both emotional (anger) and physical (the abscess) symptoms. Since using the homeopathic remedy that is similar to her, she has been noticing these triggers when they balance-15712__180occur, and has become much more in touch with her feelings and responses. She has become more proactive in her self care. The flare ups in the scar tissue are becoming less severe, and are taking less time to heal. Homeopathy is stimulating a deep healing within her.

Our Triggers

When an event occurs in our life, it may be a trigger to past or present relationships, circumstances, events, behaviors, feelings and more. (I think for some people this past election may have been a trigger for some people.) When we do experience a trigger, it is a good time to help ourselves. The affects we are experiencing at this time are more on the surface and more prominent, and are therefore more readily expressed and available, making it a good time to start a healing process.

Are you being triggered?

I invite you to contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.

And to all my American friends and readers, thank you for reading my blog, and I wish you a wonderful and yummy Thanksgiving!

See The Individual, Not The Label Of ADD/ADHD

We are all individuals. ADD/ADHD is a name, a label, to a long list of symptoms, behaviors and responses. When a child, and/or an adult, is not fitting in to the environment of school, of work, of life even, then very often medication is recommended by the person’s physician, and/or by the school.

Some Children I Have Seen In My Practice

Over the years, I have seen many children who have had the label of ADD/ADHD put on       sad smiley facethem. There may have been a commonality in that they were not doing their work at school, having difficulty focusing and attending, and were easily distracted. Some of these children were proscribed medication – some took it and some did not. I believe that all of the parents of these children were open and wanting other ways of helping their child than using medication.

As I met with the child and their parents, I heard and observed more than that the child was distracted. I believe that each child was suffering in their own way. Below is a short description of some of the children I have seen in my practice.

  • One girl was constantly moving around my office, crawling on the floor, hiding behind the chairs, and going under the desk. As she was moving around and changing her position in the room, she was talking to me.
  • One boy sat still in his chair. At times, while he sat in the chair, he would move his leg. He said if someone did something to him, he automatically (and he used this word automatically) started figuring out how to take revenge on this person. Sweet revenge, he said, and smiled somewhat. He would plan what he would do to this person. He experienced very frightening dreams of dark images, which he said came right up to his face. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, he said that the automatic feeling of needing to take revenge on someone was gone; he didn’t feel it anymore.
  • One boy had the urge to just run away from where he was. He felt very poorly about himself. At school, it was difficult to focus on what needed to be done in terms of his schoolwork. He was very concerned on how he said things, because it might be hurtful to someone.
  • When I first met this boy at the  door, he wanted to hide behind his mom. He also didn’t want to be videotaped. He felt embarrassed. During the school day, he was not focusing on his schoolwork. Once home, his mother needed to help him with his homework,  going over the material he had learned during the day. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, both his mother and his teacher noticed that he was more focused on his work. And his mother said that he seemed calmer.
  • Another boy had angry outbursts and tantrums at home, at school, and in public areas.

There is more to each of these children than what I have written here. You can see how different each of these children are. Each was given a different homeopathic remedy; a homeopathic remedy that fit them.

Healing With Homeopathy

children playing by beachWith the healing with homeopathy, the child becomes more of who they are. The child is not changed. They become who they are fully, being curious and creative children. With the healing  process, the child no longer experiences the  inner interferences that has made it difficult for them  to interact in their environment, the world around them, and with their family and friends.

Although, I have written mostly about children in this post, all of this applies to teenagers and adults as well, who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD or are taking medication. We are all individuals, and our treatment needs to fit us, not a label.

I would be happy to talk to you further about yourself or a loved one who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

It Starts Within Us – A Healing With Homeopathy

It starts within us.

We react to something that happens in our life. The response can be emotional, physical, and/or mental. It can be experienced or shown by a feeling, a sensation in the body, a particular symptom, a thought, a behavior. It is like an automatic response. It just happens.

An Automatic Response

These are some automatic responses I have heard expressed in my practice:

  • Angry, extreme angry, when someone drives in front of the person and cuts them off. The person curses at the other driver, and may even get out of his car and confront the other driver, in a very angry way.
  • Concerned about doing one’s best at work, to the point that they don’t even start working. They procrastinate. Being fearful of not doing the work well, and/or of failing.
  • Being isolated from the outside world. Wanting very much to be part of life, to be involved with the community, to be in a relationship, to do work that is meaningful. Feeling that they need to protect themselves.
  • Being very nervous and worried about one’s family members, to the point of not allowing their older children to be at home alone.
  • Having a very upset stomach, and needing to know where the public bathrooms are located, just in case.
  • Wanting to run away, and hide.
  • Fevers and not feeling well, that result in a possible ear infection, in which course after course of antibiotics are given.
  • Wanting to take revenge on someone else when they have been insulted, hurt, or being told what to do.

Each of us has our responses, our automatic responses, that we go to when something happens in our life. What is your automatic response?

Healing Is Within

Just as our automatic response is within us, the healing comes from within us too.

Recently a woman who has been having homeopathic care, was sick with a lingering, deep chest cough that developed into tree reflectionpneumonia. In the past, when she was sick, she would still get up, get out of bed, and go to work. If she had an event she was hosting and responsible for, she would go and attend to what she needed to do. During this recent time when she was sick, she did not go to her job, nor did she go to the events that were scheduled. She was able to say I cannot go, I am sick. Here is the information and the materials you will need for the event. Everything is all prepared and ready. She was able to let go, and allow herself to rest and to heal.

You may ask, how can she be better if she is sick?

The letting go is very healthy for her. Yes, she is sick, on a physical level, but she is feeling better within herself. She is able to let go of the responsibilities and the feelings of obligation in her life, and allow herself to rest and get better. This is health for her.

Health

These are examples of what others have experienced as they are healing and are in a more healthful state.

  • Feeling less angry. Responding less with angry comments when something happens in their life.
  • Able to do the work at their job, with less feelings of fear and anxiousness of the possibility of it not being correct or that they will fail.
  • Sharing themselves with other people and being more out in the world.
  • Less worried and nervous about the safety of her children.
  • Calmer stomach, no longer in dire need of the public bathrooms.
  • Able to stay in the situation, and not have the feeling of running away and hiding.
  • Less fevers, and no longer having the need for antibiotics.
  • The response to get back at someone is no longer present.

Homeopathy helps with this healing, with creating this awareness, with quieting the automatic response. The healing is happening within. This is health.

Homeopathy To Heal

I would be happy to talk further with you about how homeopathy can be of help to you in quieting down your automatic response. I invite you to either contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

For A child, And Their Parents, Who Is Using Homeopathic Remedies

children in a lineRecently a mom of a patient of mine wanted to know if there was anything written that she could find online or published that talks to children about homeopathy. I don’t know of anything that has been written. I thought this is wonderful idea, and I need to do it. I am writing this post to the child, or to the parents of the child, so that you can read it to your child.

The Homeopathic Remedy

You may or may not have taken many medications over the years. If you did they were pills. And perhaps you don’t want to take them anymore. The homeopathic remedy is in pellet form and they do look like pills, little white ones, but they aren’t the same as the pills that you have taken in the past.

The original form of the homeopathic remedy is liquid. When the homeopathic remedy is made at a homeopathic pharmacy, the vial or the small bottle is first filled with white sugar lactose pellets. The pellets come in different sizes and shapes. Then the liquid homeopathic remedy that is being used is poured into and onto these pellets. (I have seen this preparation at the Heiios Pharmacy in London.) The pellets absorb the liquid.

How To Take The Homeopathic Remedy

When you take the homeopathic remedy, the pellets are tipped into the lid of the vial, and then tipped into your mouth. We   homeopathy2say let them dissolve, don’t chew them. What you are tasting as the pellets are dissolving in your mouth is the sweetness of the pellets. Remember the pellets are sugar lactose, that is what you are tasting. You don’t taste the homeopathic remedy because there is no taste to the homeopathic remedy. You may have a taste of alcohol. This is because the substance that the homeopathic remedy is made from has been diluted in water and alcohol. Alcohol is a preservative, letting the homeopathic remedy last for a long period of time.

If you don’t want to take the pellets and have them dissolve in your mouth, you can dissolve 3 – 4 pellets in 4 ounces of spring or filtered water in a glass. Stir. Then take a teaspoonful of the homeopathic remedy. That is one dose. When the homeopathic remedy is diluted, you are bringing the homeopathic remedy back to its original form – liquid.

You most likely will not be taking the homeopathic remedy every day like you do with the medication you were taking before. Your parents will have been given instructions on how and when to give you the homeopathic remedy.

What Happens When You See A Homeopath

When you have met with a homeopath, such as myself, the homeopath has listened to you, has observed you, wants to know what bothers you, and what that is like for you. You may have been asked about what kinds of things you like to do, or fears you have, or dreams you have, or even what types of foods you have a strong craving for (you love) or have an aversion to (you hate). From all of this the homeopath chooses a homeopathic remedy that fits you. For example. some other child could have come in to see the homeopath and also have difficulty breathing at times. This child would need a different homeopathic remedy than you, because really they are experiencing the difficulty of breathing differently from the way you are experiencing it. The homeopathic remedy given to you, fits you.

kids-know-whats-good-for-them1How You Will Feel From Taking The Homeopathic Remedy

The homeopathic remedy will not do anything to you, such as making you clear your throat, or making you drowsy or sleepy or kind of sluggish, or give you tics or movements that you can’t control or make it that you aren’t hungry. These kinds of things may have happened when you took medications, the pills that you had taken. The homeopathic remedy is matching you. It is helping you heal yourself.

Whatever brought you in to see the homeopath will be better. Such as breathing easier. Not getting so frightened at things. Sleeping better at night. Not having nightmares. Not having a persistent, ongoing cough. Not feeling so angry at times. Not having the urge to bite or to hit or to kick someone. Not having the itching rash on your body. You are just feeling better.

I hope this has helped to know more about homeopathy.
