Unfolding Like A Flower – Meeting The Patient Where They Are – Healing With Homeopathy

In a way, getting to know a patient as I am working with them is like an unfolding flower, seeing one layer and then another one. A flower unfolds and opens up, first starting out as a tightly, closed bud, and then slowly or rose-2634412_960_720quickly opening up to its fullest bloom. A patient does the same thing, starting with the complaint, often something physical, and then going deeper into what is bothering them.

The Layers

It may be that the patient says, “I have this disease, this illness.” And they give a name. “This is what I want to be healed.”  This is the first layer. It is factual and very physical. For example:

  • Someone has had a fall and bruised their leg. They use the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana to help with the trauma of the fall and the bruising of their leg.
  • I person says that have a particular disease or health condition such ADHD, fibromyalgia, asthma, eczema. What homeopathic remedy would you give me?  The thinking here is that the person has this, a name of an illness, and wants a medicine for this particular illness.

In the next layer, the person may say they have a particular illness, AND, they will start to talk about very specific symptoms that they are experiencing. These symptoms may not be what are typically listed under the disease name, but are unique to this individual. At this layer the person is starting to tell more about themselves as an individual person, and what bothers them. It is not just the name of the illness.  An example:

  • A sore throat. The person says that it is on the right side. Very sore. When they swallow it hurts. The sore throat came on suddenly. The pain is throbbing and pulsating. There is a fever. The person feels almost delirious.

At deeper layers, the patient will talk even more about themselves and how they are experiencing what bothers them in their life. They will talk about emotional reactions and responses. They will describe how they experience the pain or the discomfort, and how it affects them. Often, a particular sensation will be described, that is experienced on many levels. They may mention dreams and fears. The homeopath starts to see a thread running through what the patient is saying, that connects the physical, the emotional, and the mental states. This all makes up the whole person. The patient is talking more on an energy level, than a physical one. For instance:

  • A woman tells me about the arthritic type pains she experiences in her hands. The pain makes it difficult for her to hold and grasp objects. Cooking, and she does a lot of cooking, and doing household tasks are extremely painful for her. She says the pain feels as if her hands are being squeezed really really tightly. She makes a hand gesture when she is talking about the squeezing. (I watch for hand gestures, recurring hand gestures. They express energy.) Her husband is having business difficulties. She says that she and her husband have been taken advantaged of by other people, people they had trusted. She would like to get back at this people, take revenge on them.

Meeting The Patient Where They Are

women-friends-1577910_960_720Just as a flower unfolds, so does a person. Starting with one layer and then moving to another one, unfolding. Each patient is different. Whatever is the top layer is what is heard, seen, and observed by the homeopath. It is what the patient is experiencing at the time. The homeopath meets the patient where they are, at that layer. One homeopathic remedy may be used and is healing. Other times, a series of homeopathic remedies are used as different layers emerge. It is always meeting the patient where they are.

I ask you: What do you want to be better? How are you feeling? What is bothering you? How do you experience what is bothering you? This is where we start.

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.

How Would You Answer These Four Questions?

ice-crystal-64157_960_720How are you not feeling well?

How long have you not been feeling well?

How does this not feeling well affect your life?

How would you like to feel differently?

What would your answers be to these four questions? What would you say?

*******

What Some People Have Said

We are all different in what we say is bothering us. And we are all different in how we experience “not feeling well”. Here is what a few people have said when answering these questions:

  • I am so exhausted. I can’t even vacuum my house. I am so tired. I get up in the morning, and then I need to take a nap very soon afterwards. I would like to have the energy I used to have.
  • I have these skin eruptions. It is eczema. I have always had this. It is always itching and is all over my body. I want this eczema gone!
  • I have had this cough for the last 3 months. Sometimes I have a coughing fit, and then I feel so tired afterwards. I can’t talk too much because I will start coughing. I would like to feel better. I would settle with just not coughing as much.
  • My child goes to school for only half a day. He becomes so upset with snowflakeshimself if he doesn’t do an assignment right, or the way he feels it needs to be done. He will get mad at himself, and sometimes throw things or run away and hide. He takes medication daily, but he still feels this way. I would like him to be happy – to not be so upset with himself, to enjoy school and to have friends.
  • I always have to watch the kinds of foods I eat, otherwise, I have severe stomach pains and diarrhea. I feel so limited in what I can eat. I have to know where all the bathrooms are located when I go out. I would like to be able to eat like everyone else.
  • I have allergies. Every spring I am so congested, and it is difficult to breath. To breath all year round would be great!
  • I have hot flashes at night. I wake up in the middle of the night, feeling very anxious, and then the hot flashes come. I sweat so much. And during the day I feel so anxious too.  No more sweats and hot flashes, that is what I would like.
  • I feel so emotional about things that are happening in my life. I cry all the time. To not be so emotional, or to understand it better.
  • I just don’t feel well. I am tired all the time, and have this cold that just won’t go away. My doctor says, I am fine, but I feel as though I am not fine. To feel well and not be tired would be good.

This Is A Start

What each person said about themselves is a start in learning about them. If they choose to come in for homeopathy, together we go deeper to understand more fully what this “not feeling well” is like for them. We are all different in how we experience “not feeling well”, whether it is a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual complaint.

I invite you to think about these four questions. How would you answer them? Mull them over. Maybe write down what comes to you. And, after you have done that, and you are wanting to feel better, contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com, and let’s get you feeling better.

Recurring Health Concerns

This past week, I had a call from a father about his 3 month old baby daughter. He has had experience with homeopathy before having taken his older child to see a homeopath. He told me that his little baby daughter was not feeling well. She had had a cold several weeks ago, was better, but now she was not feeling well again. She wasn’t running a fever, and he didn’t think that she was in pain. He said she was irritable.

I was thinking that maybe her irritability was an expression of some sort of pain or discomfort. Obviously, she wasn’t feeling well. Babies and small children don’t tell us through words how they are feeling, but through sounds, behaviors, actions, movements, changes in moods and temperaments. This baby was expressing something through her irritability.

Unfortunately, the father cancelled the appointment he had made with me for his daughter. He told me that they had taken her to see a doctor, who said that it was a cold. The father decided to not pursue homeopathic care, at this time. I said, if the cold continues, or if it returns, it would be a good idea to bring your daughter in for homeopathic care, since she already has been experiencing a recurrence of this, and we don’t want that to continue.

People I Speak To

gumby sickWhen I talk to people either in person or on the phone, they tell me about their particular health concern. I hear all sorts of things, such as the person is experiencing pains and discomforts in their feet. They have an extremely itchy rash or eczema eruption. Breathing is difficult for them. The get very anxious in some situations. There are feelings of sadness or depression. They don’t sleep well. During their menstrual cycle certain symptoms come up. They are extremely fearful and/or have nightmares. They have ongoing headaches, stomachaches, or digestive issues. I hear all sorts of things. The person is not feeling well, and they want to feel better.

Recurring Health Concern

Their health concern is often something that has been going on for a awhile, or it had gone away and now it is recurring again. They have periodic flare ups of it. They are not feeling better from the type of treatment they are using for their health concern, and they want to feel better.

In a previous post, I wrote about a young boy who had recurring congestion, fevers and ear infections. The boy had taken several courses of antibiotics. Each time, he would be better for a month or so, and then the whole situation would happen again. The homeopathic remedy that fit him, that was similar to what he was experiencing, helped him to heal this recurrence of the ear infections, the fevers, and the congestion. He has done well.

Often when there is a recurring health concern, the treatment being used helps to ease and to palliate when there is an outbreak or flare up. This treatment helps the person feel better for the time being, but doesn’t heal the health concern. The person needs to continue taking the medication to feel better, often accepting that these recurrences will happen again, and again.

Does this sound like you?

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy heals at the root cause of what is bothering the person. It is a deep healing. As the person heals, the recurrences and flare ups become less and less, till they no longer happen at all. It is a healing. With the young boy I wrote of, I had thought there might be a recurrence of the ear infection as he was healing, but there wasn’t. The cycle was broken. With an adult, the stopping of the cycle may take longer to happen than with this young boy, since the adult has had this health concern for a longer period of time. But the cycle does end.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help a recurring health concern that you have. Either contact me here, through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a 15 minute complimentary Get Acquainted Call. I would be happy to talk with you about your health concern and/or a loved one.

Is The Holiday Season A Difficult Time For You? Homeopathy Helps

It is just about the start of the holiday season. Stores are starting to be more crowded. The temperatures are cooler. We are making plans – to travel, to see friends and family, to host and attend parties, for celebrations, and to shop. This time of year can be both wonderful, and can be difficult for people. It brings up a lot in us, about ourselves, our families, our financial tree reflectionsituation, our childhoods, our futures, our children, our hopes, our dreams, and our health. A lot. In many, many ways, it is a busier time of the year.

(Two years ago, I wrote a post talking about the holiday blues. I wanted to write about the holiday season again. You can read that earlier post by clicking here.)

The Holiday Season

During the holiday season, we can be more susceptible to becoming ill, whether we become ill or there is a flare up of an ongoing chronic health concern that we experience from time to time. We may be more sensitive to our surroundings at this time of the year, and therefore experience more triggers. Our schedule is different, sleeping too little, staying up late at night and getting up early in the morning. The foods we eat are different. We eat and drink too much. We travel and are in different time zones. We are around more people, the general public and our families and friends. We are alone, and may feel isolated. We have expectations of the holidays, of ourselves, and where we are in our lives. All of these could be triggers.

Getting Sick During The Holiday Season

Someone may say, you know, every year around the Christmas holidays I get sick, like with a really bad flu. Or someone else may say, this time of the year is when I get so many asthma attacks, I wonder why. And for others, their digestion may be off. Some may experience more headaches. Others are feeling more anxiety or depression. And others may have flare ups of their skin eruptions. These are just a few of what some people may experience.

The important thing is to take care of yourself. Listen to what your body, and your soul needs, or doesn’t need. Listen to your gut. Kind of checking in with yourself. Trusting and honoring yourself.

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy can be very helpful and healing during this time of the year. I have heard some homeopaths talk about their practice being quite busy during the holiday months, November thru January. Issues, emotions, situations, responses, reactions, and physical complaints and concerns may come more to the surface than at other times of the year. Because they are more accessible and right there on the surface, it may be a good time to come for homeopathic care.

I invite you to give yourself, and/or a loved one, the gift of health. I would be happy to talk with you, either through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

*******

I will be continuing to write a weekly blog, but I wanted to get this one out at the start of this holiday season. Whatever holidays you celebrate, I wish you a wonderful time filled with happiness, fun, safety, joy, and health.

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.
