Grieving – Experiencing A Loss

Grieving. Experiencing a loss.

We all grieve in are own way, and in our own pace, in our own time, short or long. Always, we need to respect and honor ourselves in how we go through experiencing grief. Honor where we are; how we grieve; how we feel, emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually; how we take care of ourselves during this time; and how we reach out to others for help, if and when we need it.

Losses

We grieve over a loss. And a loss can be experienced in many different ways. Such as:

  • A death – parent, baby, child, relative, friend, pet
  • A loss of a job – firing, resigning, downsizing, restructuring
  • A move – changing one’s place of residency, a friend moving away, moving to another country, loss of a house/home
  • A grown child moving out, or going to college/another city for work/enlisting in the military
  • A divorce, separation, or a relationship ending
  • A situation, event or even how you respond to something that is different than you thought or wanted it to be
  • A change in the political climate
  • A loss of income
  • An illness – of oneself or a loved one
  • A war
  • A natural disaster – a friend years ago lost her house in a fire

A Woman

Years ago, a woman came to me for homeopathy because she was having bouts of drawing- pigletdiarrhea in the morning. She was also feeling very anxious about herself, her job, and her health. Her husband had died a few years earlier. Their marriage had not been so good at the time of his death. She mentioned that there had been times that she had wished he had had an accident and would die, and then he did die. She was feeling guilty about having had those thoughts about him. She also had experienced other losses in her life: family members who were ill or had died, an abortion, and that she would not have another child.

Along with feeling guilty about her feelings towards her husband, she had other persistent thoughts and feelings. She wondered what people thought of her, and was worried about making a mistake. She attended a women’s support group, and went for other help, but felt that it basically came down to her, to do the work to heal. There was a sense of aloneness about her, and she had difficulty receiving consolation from others.

I gave her the homeopathic remedy Natrum muriaticum. This homeopathic remedy is often used for people who are grieving. Grief was part of why I gave her this remedy, but the remedy also fit the wholeness of her.

I was in touch with her for several months after she took the homeopathic remedy. She was feeling better: the anxiety was better; the diarrhea was better; and she was looking at her feelings regarding her husband in a much more self nurturing way. Not only was she grieving her husband’s death, but also the life she had thought she would have. During our time together, she remarked that just having this space where she could talk and experience what she was feeling deep within, was very helpful.

Not Straight Forward

The process of grieving is not usually straight forward. We may lose someone, something, an opportunity, a way of life that we thought we would have, and many different feelings and responses may occur from this loss. We may experience physical complaints along with the emotions of grief. I think often, when we lose someone we start to look at that relationship, as this woman did, and feelings come up about it, such as guilt, shoulds, responsibility, sadness, blame, anger, fear, happiness and joy.

We may need some help in the process of grieving. We may see a homeopath, a counselor/therapist, a rabbi/minister, a massage therapist, an energy medicine practitioner, an acupuncturist, other healing practitioners, or a good friend. We find our way, taking time for ourselves, doing activities that we enjoy, and being patient with ourselves. We are healing.

Health Is Having Movement

Health is having movement. When we are healthy we don’t get stuck in one place,   whether it is a physical symptom, an emotional state, persistent thoughts, certain behaviors or the same reactions. We may experience some of these, sometimes, but we waterfall-204398_1280don’t get stuck and stay in them. We are able to move out of these stuck places.

I like to give the image of a pole. Each end is the extreme. Perhaps health is being in the middle of the pole. I think really health is moving back and forth between the two ends, through the middle, not getting stuck anywhere on the pole.

Health Is Movement

As my patients talk about how they are feeling better, I often hear them talk about this movement of health. It is interesting how each person words it. Here are two patients that I have seen over the years.

Why Would People Say Things Like That?

One patient, often talked about feeling they she is attacked or insulted with things that are going on in her life. Why would people say things like that, she would say. She wanted to speak up, sometimes, even wanting to stomp her foot, saying hey, don’t talk to me like that. Instead, she just felt upset and hurt. Physically, she often felt very weak and anxious, with palpitations, and would need to lay down and rest. She also would have digestive issues; diarrhea would wipe her out.

When she came in for a follow up appointment after several months using a homeopathic  remedy, she related an incidence in which she felt she had been treated very poorly. She said, that in the past with a situation like this, she might have just backed off, not saying anything, but feeling inside, why did they say and do this to me? With this situation, she felt angry that she was treated so poorly, and wanted to speak up about it. And that is what she did.

She was not going to either of the extremes. One being so angry, venting, feeling attacked and hurt that she felt sick. And, the other extreme of wanting to attack, to stomp, and to hurt the other person. What she did was to speak up for herself. The two extremes merged, in a way. She felt them both, and found a way of handling the situation that was positive and constructive. This is health, movement of health.

She was also feeling less anxious and the weak episodes were occurring less often.

I Am Feeling Myself Again

Another woman would often talk about being heavy, enclosed, not able to move, needing to be at home, and needing/wanting to be very much in touch with a spiritual life. She also talked about some physical complaints she experienced, such as headaches, fatigue,  difficulty focusing and anxiety. The heaviness and the spirituality are the extremes of the pole, her pole.

As she was healing and feeling better, she talked about these two extremes at the same time. And she was experiencing them at the same time. Before, she had talked about them separately, and wasn’t experiencing the spirituality that she cherished. Now, she said, I am feeling like myself again. I feel grounded in my body, and I am also feeling the spiritual connection again. I had lost that connection. I am feeling it again and I feel inspired. What she expressed was health -movement of health.

She was calmer, and had more direction in her life. And her headaches were much better.

Healing With Homeopathy

Most people come to homeopathy for a physical complaint. As they are talking about what bothers them, I start to hear their “pole”, their sensitivity, their extremes, how they experience their life. With a healing, the physical complaint is better, and the person is also feeling better in themselves. They are moving. They are not stuck in their physical complaint, an emotion, a behavior, a thought, nor a reaction. This is health. I find it exciting to see my patients experience this.

I Invite You, You May Get A YES

At the end of each of my blogs, I always write – I would be happy to talk with you about how homeopathy can be of help to you. I invite you, I encourage you to contact me.

Potential Patients

I have patients say to me that they have mentioned homeopathy to a family member or a friend. Other motther offeringhealth practitioners that I know, also have told me that they have mentioned homeopathy to some of their patients. My response always is please let the person know that I would be happy to talk with them.

What I know of some of these potential patients:

  • A young woman who has had an averse reaction to the to Gardasil vaccine (HPV).
  • A woman who experiences constant pain.
  • A boy who is having difficulty in school.
  • A woman who experiences vertigo.
  • A man who is having severe headaches, which is affecting his vision.
  • A young girl who has eczema on her hands.
  • A baby who is having digestive issues – after he eats, he spits up and is in constant pain.
  • A woman who is having hot flashes that are affecting her sleep.
  • An older woman who is looking for natural ways to help her in her health.
  • A woman who is having menstrual issues.
  • A woman who experiences episodes of depression.
  • A young women who feels overly anxious and emotional. (There is nothing wrong with feeling emotional, but she is not liking it.)

The list could go on. And you can see it is people of all ages, and for all different kinds of health concerns.

I know that some of these people have done other healing modalities, western medicine included. They may be taking a prescribed medication, which is alleviating or palliating their symptoms, but not necessarily healing. What is bothering them still continues to bother them. (Homeopathy can be used along with western medications.)

Homeopathy 

In the consultation, the homeopath listens, observes, and witnesses what is bothering the person, what their suffering is like. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to the person’s suffering. The word homeopathy means “similar suffering”. (The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like.)

The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, their immune system, and heals at the core, at the source, of where the symptoms, the discomfort, and the pain come from. Homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances, are non-toxic and gentle in their healing.

I Invite You

Over the last year, I have entered several juried art shows. I was accepted into a few of the  bird flyingshows, and some I was not accepted into. My thinking was: enter the shows I was interested in. If I didn’t enter them, it would be a definite NO. If I did enter them, it could be a YES! I would not get a YES unless I moved forward and took action. So I did.

I invite you to take action and to find out about how homeopathy can be healing for you or a loved one. See if it can be a YES for you. You don’t know unless you do it, otherwise, it is a definite NO, and you may just continue to not feel well.

Either contact me through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com  and let’s talk to see how homeopathy may help you. I do work with patients who are not local to the San Diego area by using Skype.

 *******

Homeopathic Healing Before/During/After Pregnancy

In the community that I live in, I have been seeing more young families. Couples who have had their first child within the last two years, and now some of them are having their second child. It is fun to see these babies and families.

I am also seeing more women patients in my homeopathic practice who are pregnant and who have young children. Homeopathy is very helpful before, during, and after pregnancy. These days people are looking for safe, natural, non-toxic, and holistic healing forms of medicine for themselves, and for their families. Homeopathy fits this so well.

Having Homeopathic Treatment Before/During/After Pregnancy

When a pregnant mother has homeopathic treatment, she is helping herself as well as helping and strengthening the health of her unborn baby. And when a nursing mother is using homeopathy, the baby is also benefiting from this care. In a way, it is treating two people for the “price” of one. When the mother is healing and well, the baby will be well and healthy. Homeopathy is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

These are some of the health concerns that may bring a woman to homeopathy before, during, and after her pregnancy:

  • wanting to get pregnant/fertility issues
  • 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, sadness
  • 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
  • an ongoing health concern that the mother experiences and may be receiving other treatment for. (Homeopathy works well along with allopathic/western medicine.)

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.

Two Women  

I had started to see one woman as a patient before she became pregnant, and have continued to see her throughout her pregnancy. The homeopathic care has helped with her morning sickness, extreme fatigue, heart flutterings, colds, and with what brought her originally in for homeopathy. She also sees an ob/gyn, a chiropractor and other health practitioners.

I have seen another woman off and on – before, during her pregnancy and after the baby was born. Homeopathy helped her with the original reason she came in for. It also helped her when she experienced morning sickness and wanted to increase her breast milk supply.

If you are planning on starting a family, are pregnant, or already have young children I would be happy to talk with you if there is a health concern that is bothering you. This includes fathers as well as mothers. I invite you to contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

 

I am happy to say that I will again be at The Healthy Spirit (629 3rd Ave, Suite B, Chula Vista, CA 91910) for anyone in the San Diego area who has always wondered about Homeopathy — what it is, how it works, how it can help you be healthier and happier –I will be there on Monday, May 16, 2016.

I Am Often Asked – Can You Help Me With _____?

I think we want to know if a healing modality will help us before we start on the process. We want to know if it has helped others who experience or suffer from the same health concern that we do. So often, that is the question I am asked – Have you treated other hand-838975_960_720people with ________? Can you help me?

Because everyone is different, and different even if they experience the same health concern, such as eczema. The answer to that above question, is yes and no. I may have helped someone who has that ___________, (the yes) but I am almost sure that that person experienced the health concern differently deep down, uniquely to them, than the person who is asking me about it now (the no). There are the general symptoms and experiences of that health concern, such as itching, redness, and oozing with eczema, but the core of what it is like for each person is different.

We Want A Good “Pudding”

So still to answer that concern about getting help through homeopathy, the answer is what one of my teachers/mentors/colleagues has said “the proof is in the pudding”. Is the patient better? That is always it – is the patient better? That is the proof.

We want what brought the person in for homeopathy to be better, along with a better sense of general well being. And often, other health concerns are better as well, such as with women, there may be improvement in their menstrual cycle, even though that is not what they came in for. We want in a healing, that the totality, the wholeness of the person is better.

Some examples of a healing, of a good “pudding”:

  • When I hear that a young woman who feels nauseous all the time, starts to have a tremendous appetite after starting the homeopathic remedy that fits her, I think this is a good start to her healing.
  • When I see that a woman who had a severe concussion in a car accident less than a year ago, making it difficult to do things she normally does, starts to be able to focus on activities better pebbles-1031167_960_720without feeling nauseous and dizzy, I think this is a good start to her healing.
  • When I see a young boy, who has been on round and round of antibiotics for an ear infection, no longer experiencing ear infections, I think this is a good healing.
  • When I see a woman who experiences great discomfort during her pregnancy – morning sickness, headaches, dizziness, heart palpitations, fogginess – experience a lessening of all of these, I think this is a good healing.
  • When I see a woman have depressive thoughts, and wants to just stay inside away from other people, start to open up to to the outside world, becoming involved with people, and speaking who she is, I think this is a good healing.

I Invite You To Tell Me More

Over the years, people have specifically asked me if homeopathy can be help for: headaches, metabolism issues, allergies, weight loss, severe cramping during their periods, insomnia, weakness and fatigue, eczema on their hands, acting out at school, help with arthritic pain, fibromyalgia type symptoms, difficulty focusing, anxiety, mood swings, and more. I say to these people, yes homeopathy can help you, and tell me more.

I invite you to ask – Can you help me with __________? And then to tell me more.

Either contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

A Trauma – Homeopathy Heals

Homeopathy is very helpful for any kind of trauma – a fall, from an accident, a head injury or a concussion, a broken bone, a surgery, a deep cut, dental work, a sprained car-accident-98760_960_720muscle, an emotional upset or loss, an abuse, a wartime experience, an overdose of medications/drugs and more. At these times, homeopathic remedies can be used to help as in first aid care. The homeopathic remedy Arnica montana is very helpful. (Read more about Arnica montana.)

The Affects After A Trauma

Sometimes, the trauma takes a longer time to heal than might have been expected. There may be lingering affects or symptoms, or even an exasperation of a health issue may arise after having experiencing a trauma. These after affects manifest in different ways, such as in:

  • behavioral changes – withdrawal, angry outbursts, tantrums
  • bad dreams, nightmares or night terrors, (day terrors too)
  • difficulty sleeping
  • fears and phobias
  • eating disorders
  • anxiousness, depression, lethargy, fatigue
  • sadness and weeping
  • particular physical symptoms – headaches, vertigo, digestive issues, skin eruptions, respiratory and breathing difficulties, eye strain, memory loss, difficulty focusing
  • not able to do tasks that were done before – physical and mental tasks
  • a feeling of not being oneself – “I am not the way I was before the trauma or accident”
  • difficulties in personal relationships

Someone may say, I have done different healing modalities. These modalities have helped me, but I am not back to where I was before the accident. There is about 20% that is not healed. I am not 100% myself, the way I was before the accident. And I notice this (20%) when I do certain activities. I still feel discomfort. I have this particular pain when I do a certain task. I can’t go out and meet people. I have no energy. I can’t attend and focus on my activities and work. I get so angry.

In My Homeopathic Practice

scene of waterI see people in my homeopathic practice who have experienced a trauma – a physical, an emotional, and a situational one. I see people of all ages for this – young children through older adults. The trauma can be new, and the trauma can be old. Homeopathy has helped and healed these people.

The initial “hurt” of the trauma, how the person responded to the trauma, how it has affected their life, what changes have occurred, how they experience the “hurt” of the trauma are all important. In addition to this, the homeopath learns about the individual person – their history, their sensitivities, their fears, what bothers them, their dreams and more. All of this adds to the whole and the totality of the person.

By addressing the wholeness of the person, and not just only the trauma, a deep healing can occur. It is no longer a first aid situation; it has become more of a chronic state that the person is experiencing. Addressing the whole person may be what is needed for someone who has had a trauma to experience a deep and lasting healing.

Have you or a loved one experienced a trauma? Have you not be well since the trauma? I invite you to see how homeopathy can be helpful and healing for you. Either contact me through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com  We can set up a time to talk about you. I offer a 15+ complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Are You Feeling Run Down? Homeopathy Can Help

We lead very busy lives. Work, family, commitments, responsibilities, even leisure activities. We live a fast paced life. Always busy, always having things that need to be done, going non-stop. And we experience a constant bombardment of information from the media.

Taking a break, resting, taking a day off is often a very good idea. Sometimes though, we don’t do this on our own, and our body says we  relaxingneed to. We need to rest; we need to take time off. What happens is that we may start to not feel well. We feel tired. We come down with something – a flu, a cold, a headache, a stomachache, a sore throat. We may experience a flare-up of an ongoing health issue, such as with our digestion, asthmatic symptoms, fatigue, anxiety, depression, skin eruptions and more. Our body is saying, hey, if you don’t take time off and slow down, I will make it so you have to take time off and slow down.

Does this sound a little familiar?

Being Run Down

I am writing this blog after the holiday season. At this time of the year, we have been so busy with family and friends, traveling, making preparations, shopping, going to and hosting parties, fulfilling expectations, eating, and more. And we may have not taken time to be quiet, and have down time. We have become run down.

It is very common to feel run down at this time of the year. It is good to take a day off, to take time for ourselves. And it is always good to listen to our bodies and to our inner voice on how we feel. To honor when we need to take time for ourselves.

Healing With Homeopathy

If this is happening very often to you, and you are feeling run down, becoming sick, and/or having flare-ups of a chronic condition on a regular basis, I invite you to schedule time for yourself, and to see how homeopathy can be of help to you in your health.

I would be very happy to talk with you further about your particular health concern. You can contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I have a 15 minute Get Acquainted Call.
