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.

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 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.

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.

Children Benefit So Well From Homeopathic Care

This post is a continuation of the blog post on “what is bothering your child“. I want to tell you a bit more on how a child shows and talks about what bothers them. And then how they were better. There is more to each of these children’s cases than I have written here.

What Children Show And Say What Bothers Them

  • One little girl had difficulty staying still. Actually while she was in my consultation room, she was all over the room, sitting behind me, sitting under the desk, moving all around the room, crawling almost. This said a lot about her.
  • One girl had difficulty sleeping and had nightmares. These nightmares would keep her awake at night, or woke her up early in the morning. She would talk about.the nightmares, giving a lot of detail. She didn’t feel rested during the day.
  • One boy had asthmatic and breathing difficulties. He talked about lining up his toys very precisely and placed in specific places on a table next to his bed.
  • One girl had frequent stomach aches.
  • One little boy had been on several courses of antibiotics for ear infections and low grade fevers. He was very sensitive to noise/sounds – loud noises were frightening to him, and he was wonderful at imitating noises while he played.
  • One little boy, was labelled as “being defiant and having oppositional behavior”. (I really don’t like labels.) This type of behavior was at home and in school. He also ground his teeth a lot.
  • One little boy had eczema on his face that was so itchy.
  • One teenage boy was quite anxious, almost having anxiety attacks. He would think that people were looking at him all the time. He liked to come and talk to me. I think it was a place where someone heard him.
  • One teenage boy had persistent nose bleeds.
  • One teenage girl had difficulty sleeping  – falling asleep and staying asleep. This was worse during her examination times at school.
  • One boy would hear noises at night and would get up and ask his mother, are there burglars in the house?

And How They Benefited From Homeopathic Care

Each child did well. Each child was given the homeopathic remedy that fit them, and fit what was bothering them. The homeopathic remedy stimulated their own healing process.

The child who had difficulty sleeping, was sleeping better and having less or no nightmares. The child who was moving around in my office, was able to stay more focused on activities, and not be so distracted at the times that she needed to be focused. The child who had breathing children's hands and sundifficulties, did not have the attacks as often. The child who had stomach aches, experienced them less. There was no longer a need for antibiotics for the child that had the low grade fevers and congestion. The eczema cleared up on the child’s face, and he no longer experienced itching. The pre-teen that felt anxious a lot, was able to be in situations and feel more at ease with the situation and himself. The nosebleeds subsided for the boy. The “oppositional” behavior in the boy, become less so, and his interactions with his family and people at school were easier. The boy who asked questions at night was able to go to bed, fall asleep, and feel safe. And the teen age girl, who is now a graduate school student, is able to go through the stressful exam times with more ease.

Healing With Homeopathy

How would it be if your child was feeling better with whatever was bothering them? They would be happier. They could be the child they are. And you would be feeling better too. The whole family would be feeling better.

There may be other health concerns that your child may be experiencing than what I have mentioned in this blog post. I would be happy to talk with you about your child.

What Is Bothering Your Child – Homeopathy Helps

two childrenI see people of all ages in my homeopathic practice. I especially like to work with children. I have a soft spot for them. Children respond so well to homeopathy, and often very quickly. There is less compensation, less intellectualizing, and a shorter history as compared to adults. A child’s vital force is strong, That is why you see a child get sick suddenly, run a highish fever, and are better suddenly.

WHAT Was Bothering This Boy

Over the years, I have learned that what may bother the mother, and usually that is why the child has come in to see me, may not be what bothers the child. Something else may be bothering the child. For example, one boy I saw several years ago had a cough. His mother was very concerned about it, and it bothered her a lot. But when I asked the boy what bothered him, he said that his younger sister was the boss of him. Hearing more about this, lead me to the selection of the homeopathic remedy that was similar to him, more so than hearing about the cough. The cough was part of the picture of the remedy, but this feeling of someone who is smaller than him and is bossing him around, was more at the core of what bothered him than the cough. He did well on the homeopathic remedy. He felt better about himself in relation to his sister, and to others, and the cough subsided.

Children Express Who They Are

My job is to understand, observe and hear what is bothering the child. (Of course, I do this with adults too.) Parents bring their child in for a particular reason. That reason is important, but I want to know what it is like for the child, such as with the boy I mentioned above.

I hear and observe what is bothering the child. This is expressed through the words they use; the sounds they make; the actions they take; their interactions with their moms, dads, siblings and others; their movements; their drawings; the stories they tell; the dreams they experience; their fears; their interests and what they like to do; their sensitivity to sounds/noises, to darkness/light, to being outside/inside and more. This applies to a child who is talking, to one who is not talking, yet, or doesn’t talk at all.

The parents help too, in that they tell me what they have noticed and observed about their child. Hearing about their child’s development, the birth, and the pregnancy maybe be helpful. But, most importantly it is to see and understand what bothers the child, and what they are expressing and experiencing. From this, a homeopathic remedy is selected that is similar to the child, which stimulates the child’s own healing process.

When A Child Is Having Difficulty Sleeping – Homeopathy Heals

teddy-bear-567952_640A friend of mine who works with children, and adults, as a vision therapist, told me recently that a lot of the children have been saying to her that they don’t sleep well. This was curious to me. Sleep is so very important. It is the time that we reset ourselves – our bodies, our minds, our emotions, and our spirits. It is a time of healing. To not sleep well, to me, means there is something that is blocking that innate ability to just slow down, turn off, feel and be safe, and sleep. There is some uproar, some imbalance, some disturbance within the child that prevents them to get the rest that they need.

Is Your Child Having Difficulty Sleeping?                                                                   

How is your child’s sleep?

  • difficulty falling asleep
  • waking frequently
  • waking early and not able to go back to sleep
  • having nightmares – certain images come up
  • not wanting to sleep alone (this may not be a problem)
  • checking in with parents frequently during the night
  • light sleeper, when previously they were a not as sensitive to their environment
  • heavy sleeper – difficulty waking
  • changes in sleep habits and behaviors
  • self comforting behaviors
  • feeling anxious
  • feeling fearful
  • restlessness
  • emotional upsets – crying, tantrums, angry outbursts, stubbornness, sadness
  • a physical ailment that is keeping them from getting a good night’s sleep – chronic ear infections, stomachaches, headaches, eczema, allergies, asthma, coughs, colds, fevers
  • a change in the environment: a new sibling, a move, a parent being away for a length of time, a death, a divorce

Two Children

I want to tell you about two children I have seen over the years in my practice who had sleeping difficulties. The difficulty sleeping was part of what brought each child to homeopathy along with other concerns. The sleeping difficulty was a part of the whole picture of the child. By really seeing what was bothering the child, a homeopathic remedy was given that fit the child. It wasn’t a remedy for the sleeping difficulty, but a remedy for the child. Each was given a different homeopathic remedy. They both did well.

The first patient was a young girl who experienced a lot of nightmares at night. She also had difficulty falling asleep, and would wake up early. She wasn’t getting a full night’s sleep and didn’t feel rested during the day. This affected how she interacted with her family, and just how she was during the day. She was not always easy to be around. With the homeopathic remedy that was similar to her, she started to sleep better. The nightmares were much less, occurring rarely. She was easier to be around during the day. And when the sleeping became difficult again, that was a sign that she needed another dose of the remedy. I actually have not seen her for about year. I am thinking she is doing well.

The other patient was a young boy. He would go to bed at night, and during the first few hours, he would be up asking his mother when was his father coming home, if his father was away or working late. And if he heard any noises in the house, he would get up and ask his mother what are those noises? And maybe there is a burglar in the house? He would do this several times during the evening. With the homeopathic remedy that fit him, he no longer needed to check in with his mother when he went to bed at night. He was able to go to bed, fall asleep, and sleep through the night.

Healing With Homeopathy

I would be happy to talk with you on how homeopathy could be of help for your child, if they are experiencing a sleeping issue. Please know too, that if you as an adult having sleeping difficulties, homeopathy would be helpful for you too.

Being “A Regular Child” – Homeopathy Helps

happy child I have posted this link from Upworthy on Facebook about a school building in Japan that is designed in a circle that allows kindergarten children to move. (Some of you may have viewed it already.) I think it is a great idea. Children are moving. They are moving and doing things at their own pace, in the modes of learning that they learn best in, and being drawn to what interests them. It is an environment that is fitting to them, and not the other way around, that the child is needing to fit the environment.

To me, the boy in the photo is saying: Look at me. Look at what I can do. This is me! Isn’t it great!?

I liked how this school is set up. It is allowing the child to be who they are. That is what a healing with homeopathy does for a child, and for an adult, allowing them to be who they are, without whatever is hindering them or getting in their way of being who they are. The hindrances could be fears, physical symptoms – such as digestive issues, respiratory issues, skin eruptions, allergies, asthma, chronic ear infections, headaches – behavioral issues, specific sensitivities, terrifying nightmares, difficulty sleeping, angry feelings and outbursts, withdrawn behaviors, difficulty focusing, and more.

When these hindrances are quieted down, the child can be, as a woman said to me recently, “a regular child”. They can move, they can be who they are.
