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.

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.
