My Niche As A Homeopath

A lot of times, I am asked what is my niche? Who do I see? What kinds of health concerns do I see in my homeopathic practice? Do I have a specialty area? Do I see people who have  _______________?

My Answer

I don’t see any particular health concern. I see mostly children and women, for all sorts of health concerns, but not a particular area, such as women’s issues. (And then I think to myself, maybe I should have a niche, a specialty area.)

The people that do come for homeopathy are usually ones who may have an ongoing chronic condition. They are better, from taking some form of medication or receiving healing treatments, but then they are not feeling well, again. They experience a flare up of their health concern, such as another ear infection, another skin eruption, another digestion upset, or another migraine headache.

For example, a 2 year old boy I saw several years ago was having recurring ear infections and nasal congestion over a period of 6 months. (That is a quarter of his life!) He was proscribed antibiotics. He would be better for 4 weeks or so after the course of the antibiotics, and then the ear infection and nasal congestion would return. This happened several times. After one dose of the given homeopathic remedy, he did not have any more ear infections. He did very well.

My Niche

If I listen to the answer I give to people when asked what my niche is, I am actually telling them my niche. I didn’t realize that. So, here is my niche:

  • People who want to be better, who want to feel well. niche
  • People who have an ongoing, chronic health concern. A chronic health concern means, that they feel better and then feel worse again. They experience periodic flareups.
  • People who live with the health concern, managing and living with it, in any way they can.
  • People who have used other healing modalities, that have helped by giving them some relief, but there has not been a healing at the root cause of what is bothering them.
  • People who are open to doing another form of healing.
  • People who are open and interested in homeopathy.

This is my niche.

And these are the kinds of people who I mostly see in my homeopathic practice.

Homeopathy Is A Wonderful Healing Modality – And You

I want to talk to you about homeopathy, and you.

Homeopathy is a wonderful healing modality. It is helpful for so many health concerns people experience today, from first aid, like burns, sprains, falls and dental procedures; to acute concerns like colds/flus, coughs, sore throats and impacted teeth; to chronic/ongoing conditions like gull in flightdigestive issues, headaches, swollen glands and a cancer diagnosis. For a child who is having difficulty concentrating or is on the autism spectrum, to an older person who has had a heart attack. I can list and list health concerns of which homeopathy would be helpful, and for all ages.

And homeopathy is also helpful for other living beings in addition to human beings, such as your dog, cat or horse.

You Know…

I believe that you know:

What you want.

To be pain free, to have more energy, to have better digestion, to  focus better, to have easier periods, for your child to have a conversation with you.

What is bothering you.

Pain, anxiety, fatigue, emotional feelings, a skin eruption.

What is preventing you from being better.

A mindset, a trauma or physical ailment that you really have not healed from yet, an ongoing stress situation, an exposure to environmental toxins. 

And, what you are looking for in terms of helping yourself in your health.

To feel better using more natural forms of healing that really promote a healing, and not a palliation, by accessing the body’s wonderful healing ability.

Homeopathy

You may be wanting to know specifically what homeopathy can do to help you in your health, to help you in what you do know about yourself.  I may have addressed that in previous posts, if I haven’t, I invite you to contact me and let’s see about you.

I can be contacted through this blog post or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

I wrote this post THERE IS A NEED FOR HOMEOPATHY awhile ago. You may want to give it a read.

Finding Out About The Person – The Homeopathic Consultation (Part 1)

I receive phone calls, emails, and messages from people asking me if homeopathy could help their particular health concern. Very often, I am asked, I have this _______ or I experience this symptom, what would you suggest for me?

I don’t know. And I say that. I say I don’t know. Then I say, I need to find out how this is for you. I need to know more. I suggest you come in for an appointment and lets see what is going on with you.

What Happens In A Homeopathic Consultation

When I meet someone for a homeopathic consultation, this is what is happening. I am:

  • Listening. Observing. Witnessing. So I can understand what the person is experiencing. Finding out what is bothering them, and how they experience it. What this is like for them.
  • Creating a place and space for someone to talk and to show who they are and what bothers them.
  • Listening to the spoken and the unspoken words. I often say, I am listening through.sculpture-2275202_1280
  • Watching, seeing, hearing, the hand gestures, body movements, facial expressions, sounds the person makes, and the words and language the person uses to express themselves.
  • Specifically, finding out about a symptom – what makes it better, worse, location, how experienced, when it first started, how it feels, other symptoms with it, how is it to have the symptom.
  • Putting all the pieces/parts together, making a whole picture of the person. Like a jigsaw puzzle, being put together. Or a painting being painted in front of me. But I don’t have the complete picture in front of me to know what the final outcome will be.
  • Learning the person’s world and their language. How they view their world. How they experience their world.
  • Giving a homeopathic remedy that is similar to this whole picture of the person.

Always Finding Out About The Person

What I describe here, is what I do whether the person has:

  • a chronic condition – ongoing, experiencing flare ups of symptoms periodically, never quite going away, such as eczema, menstrual difficulty, digestive issues, asthma, anxiety, auto-immune conditions and more.
  • an acute condition – the flu, a cold, an infection, a cough, a childhood disease. An acute could also be a flare up of the chronic condition.
  • a first aid situation – a fall, a trauma, dental work, surgery, a sprain/strain, a burn.

The length of time I spend with a person during a consultation may vary depending on whether it is a chronic, an acute, or a first aid situation. But always, always, I am finding out about the person – the what, and the how of what bothers them.

Look for Part 2 to this topic – the homeopathic consultation – in my next post.

*******

If I can be of help in regard to a chronic, an acute or a first situation, I invite you to contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you, and to find out what is bothering you.

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.

Preventive Care – Taking Care Of Oneself Now

Recently, I was talking to a woman about how she would like to live her life as she gets older. She said that she wants to live a healthy and full life, well into her 80’s and 90’s. She wants to be active, alert, healthy, and self sufficient. Her thinking is that now at this time of the her life, by taking good care of herself, she will be this person in her later years. It is very positive. She was asking me if I see people for preventive care in my homeopathic practice.

Preventative Care

It is making preparations. It is taking care of the concentric circles“soil” from which everything comes from in us. It is taking as good a care of ourselves now, so later on, we are in as good of health as we can be. It is preventive care:

  • eating well
  • exercising
  • getting good sleep
  • surrounding ourselves with like minded, positive, and supportive people
  • being our authentic self
  • doing activities that we love
  • being mindful of our thoughts and the words we use (of and about ourselves)
  • seeing regularly a health practitioner such as a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, a massage therapist, a western physician, an herbalist, a therapist, a hypnotherapist, an osteopath, an energy worker, and a homeopath

You often hear of people having monthly massages, chiropractic adjustments, or acupuncture treatments. A patient of mine said to me, I had a chiropractic adjustment the other day which helped with my headache. These adjustments have helped along with doing homeopathy.

Homeopathy And Preventive Care

To be honest, patients do not come to see me for preventive care very often. Usually, there is a specific reason that is bothering the person that has brought them in for homeopathy, whether it is a physical complaint, an emotional issue, a certain ongoing behavior, difficulty sleeping, and more.

Homeopathy is, and would be very helpful for preventive care. Homeopathy addresses the whole person. It is healing the “soil”, that makes up the whole person. I find that the person wants to be healthy, wants to be well, and has a wonderful motivation to be so. They want care that is non-invasive, natural, truly healing, and has no side effects. They don’t want to go the route of taking medications that are not really helping, not healing, have side effects, and possibly needed to use indefinitely.

If a person were to come in to see me, and say it was for preventive care, I would say to them good, and tell me more:

  • why are you here?
  • what is your concern?
  • is there something that is bothering you?
  • how would you like things to be?

and then, listen.

*******

I invite you to have a conversation with me on how homeopathy can be helpful for you. You are someone who is invested in being as healthy as you can be. Please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.

Being You

One day, when I was sitting in my consultation room, I heard a sound outside the patio door. I looked outside, and there in the mulberry tree was a little bird. It is a bird I had never seen before. It was maybe 7 inches long. It’s back was a black and white pattern, and it’s head was bright red. It was pecking at the tree. It walked from one place to another, pecking. I watched the bird for awhile. I had had the tree cut back recently, which I do every year, so the tree was very bare and open. That is why I could see the bird so clearly.

ladder back woodpeckerI immediately looked on the internet to see what kind of bird it was. I first thought it was a Red-Bellied Woodpecker, and then realized it was a Ladder Back Woodpecker, which is native to the southwest. This made more sense. And the next day, the bird or its friend, came back, pecking on my tree.

I was thinking as I was watching the bird, that it was doing what it knows how to do. It was being itself – looking for food, and perhaps it found some food, and then moving on to find more. It was being who it is.

What We Want

That is really what we all want –  we want to be who we truly are – to love, to be loved, to do work that we enjoy, to enjoy our lives, to enjoy our relationships with friends and family. And to be healthy so we can do and be these things. To be who we are.

Someone may have a health issue that makes it difficult for them to take part in life. He can be tired all the time. She needs to know where the bathrooms are located when she goes out, because she has chronic diarrhea. He needs to watch very strictly what he eats. She doesn’t have an appetite and feels nausea all the time. He is not better from an accident that occurred awhile ago. He has pains and discomfort in his hands. She has ongoing flare ups of breathing difficulties. She is anxious and fearful for herself and her loved ones. He is constantly scratching his arms. These are some of what may bother people to the extent that it affects their life. They can’t truly be who they are.

Healing – Being Who You Are – Being You

A healing with homeopathy is of the whole person. The complaint that brought the person in for homeopathic care is better, AND, the person is feeling better in themselves. For one of my patients, her complaint was better. She wasn’t experiencing heart flutterings as much, or at all, AND, she was feeling more energetic. She was doing more activities during the day and having plenty of energy to do so. She said she was feeling like herself again. I could see this in her face.

It is not that the person is changed when having homeopathic care; it is that he can be more of who he is. He is no longer being bogged down and hindered with a physical, emotional or mental health issue, which has been limiting how he lives his live and how he is out in the world. As he is healing, he becomes more of himself. Just as the bird was pecking on my tree, being who he is, the person is being who he is.

I invite you to contact me if you are wanting to feel better and be who you are. Either contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

It Is Always A Good Time To Use Homeopathy For Children – Babies, Young Children, Teenagers, Young Adults

When I speak to a mom/dad/grandparent about their child, I almost always say this is a good time for your child to come in for homeopathic care. I say this whether the child is a baby (3 1/2 month old), young child, teenage child or 20 something child. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.

Why Is It A Good Time?

children playingIt is a good time because the child is so young. The health issue that the child is experiencing is not entrenched; they have not had it for a long period of time. Children have a very strong vital force/vitality and respond well to homeopathy.

It is a good time because the child may have just started using medications, or is not using them at all. These medications may help with the symptoms and ease the discomfort, the behavior, the breathing, the itching, but they are not really healing. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

It is a good time because the child is still growing and developing their bodies, their minds, and who they are as a person. As parents, we want the best for our children, in their health and in their life.

It is a good time because often when a child is doing better, it affects the whole family unit, healing the family.                                                                                                                             a-smile-333604_960_720

It is a good time because – I have a soft spot for children. I guess this is my “because”.

What Do Parents Call About?

These are some of the health concerns that parents have called me about that their child is experiencing (and adults experience these types of health concerns too):

  • ear aches and ear infections – being on course after course of antibiotics
  • digestive issues, such as acid re flux, spitting up, stomachaches after eating, chronic diarrhea, difficulty eating certain foods, constant nausea
  • skin eruptions – eczema, warts, rashes
  • continually crying and seeming to be in pain or discomfort
  • breathing difficulties, such as asthma
  • difficultly focusing on school work
  • behavioral issues – angry outbursts, tantrums, pulling inside oneself by withdrawing
  • chronic coughs
  • menstrual issues – painful cramps, being very emotional and weepy
  • reactions to vaccinations
  • sleep issues – insomnia, nightmares
  • just not feeling well

Seeing The Individual Child

Homeopathy is a form of medicine that addresses the person as a whole being and as an individual. It is finding out what bothers the person, and how they experience what          youth-320987_960_720bothers them – uniquely to them.

For example, the child may have asthma. After hearing how the child experiences the asthma and how it affects them, along with hearing about the child’s emotional life, their fears, their dreams, what they like to do, and their health history, the homeopathic practitioner gives a homeopathic remedy that fits this child. Another child who also experiences asthma, would most likely need a different homeopathic remedy, a homeopathic remedy that fits them.

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the child, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits the child. This applies to a child who experiences behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.
