When A Child Runs A Fever

This weekend I was at a friend’s open house, and I was talking to a mom about her 2 year old little girl, Sarah, not her real name. Sarah was getting over being sick.  She had had a fever that ran more at night, than in the daytime. She had the fever for about 2 days, and it was pretty high. Sarah’s mom told me that this was the first time Sarah has been sick, and it was frightening to see her daughter run the fever and not feel well.

I commented to Sarah’s mom, that a fever is a good thing. It is the body’s way of healing. She agreed with me.

This is more of what I told Sarah’s mom:

Children often run higher fevers than adults do. With children, fevers, and other symptoms, come on quickly and suddenly, and seem to be very extreme; and, the fevers go away quickly and suddenly as well. This suddenness and extreme symptoms teddy-242868_960_720are a reflection of a STRONG vital force. It is a good sign. It is showing health. The body is doing what is does so well. The person doesn’t necessarily feel so good, but it is a good sign of health.

In comparison, someone who does not have a strong vital force, such as an older person or someone who has on ongoing chronic condition, may not run a fever at all, run a low fever, or run a fever off and on. And the illness may just drag on.

I added, that it is very common for children to run a fever at night, be fine the next day, playing and being active, and then run the fever again at night. Sarah’s mom said that is what had happened with Sarah, for two days.

I could tell that Sarah’s mom felt better hearing this. She seemed more relaxed, knowing that Sarah is healthy, and her body is  doing what a healthy body does.

Sometimes, a person needs some help in their healing process. Homeopathy can be very helpful when someone is running a fever, has the flu, or has a cold. And if you are concerned when you or a loved one is running a fever, it is always good to check with your physician.

If I can be of any help, please contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I do see patients outside the San Diego area through the use of Skype.

Wanting To Feel Better – Healing With Homeopathy Instead Of Antibiotics

We become sick. We want to feel better, as soon as we can. We go to our doctors. They may give us a prescription for an antibiotic. We feel better that something is being done, although the situation may not have really called for antibiotics, or the antibiotics didn’t help.

In the February 1, 2016 issue of THE SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, Paul Sisson wrote an article on antibiotics titled Rules Urge Doctors To Rein In Antibiotics. The article talked blowing noseparticularly about the use of antibiotics for severe coughs, sore throats, nasal congestion, sinus pain and colds. Ear aches/ear infections could be added to the list. The main premise of the article was for these kinds of health conditions, antibiotics are not necessarily needed, although they are prescribed very often for them. An excerpt from the article is below. You can read the entire article here.

Please know that there is a time and a place for antibiotics in which they are very useful.

Healing With Homeopathy

We always want to feel better. And we want our health practitioner to lead us on that path. There are other means than antibiotics that can be used when someone is not feeling well.

The healing process and ability of our bodies works so wonderfully well. When we listen to our bodies, take the rest that we need, nourish our bodies with good food and water, exercise, and nurture ourselves by doing activities that we love, our bodies heal well. It is when we are not moving through a health concern – such as a severe cough, a sore throat, nasal congestion, ear aches and infections, colds and more – that we may need help. Homeopathy is very helpful and healing in these situations. These health issues may be a one time occurrence or a chronic situation, in which flare ups are experienced regularly.

Homeopathy works with the body’s innate ability to heal. The individual person is addressed. Seeing, listening, witnessing how the person experiences what bothers them –  how they experience their cough, their sore throat, their nasal congestion, their ear ache or their cold. It is learning about this person – the totality of this person.

Some People Who Have Benefited From Homeopathic Care

Patients who were helped with homeopathy:

  • A little boy who had recurring nasal congestion and possible ear infections. He had taken several rounds of antibiotics. The homeopathic remedy, which was similar to him, helped with the nasal congestion and the ear infections. He didn’t need to take another course of antibiotics. And the remedy has continued to help, when he has become ill or has not felt well. He hasn’t had another ear infection.
  • A boy who had a severe sore throat, took a homeopathic remedy soon after the sore throat had started to bother him. The sore throat subsided, and he was feeling much better within a couple of days.
  • A man who found it difficult to breath and had used antibiotics for the recurring nasal congestion, did very well with the homeopathic remedy that fit him. His nasal congestion cleared up and he was able to breath easier.
  • A woman who had not felt well for several weeks, was experiencing a sore throat. She said the pain was all the time, and her throat felt very raw. She thought of going to Urgent Care, where she probably would have been proscribed antibiotics, instead she used homeopathy, and she was feeling better.

*******

Does this sound like you?

  • not feeling well
  • experiencing an ongoing or recurring cough, nasal congestion, sinus pain, sore throat, ear infection or a cold
  • don’t want to use antibiotics or have used antibiotics and they have not helped

Then it is time to see how homeopathy can be of help to you. Either contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

 

Excerpt From the Article Rules Urge Doctors To Rein In Antibiotics

“The latest guidelines make specific recommendations for some of the most common reasons people see their doctors:

Severe coughs bring an estimated 100 million people into physician waiting rooms annually. Although 90 percent of those cases are bronchitis, which is airway inflammation caused by a virus, 70 percent of such patients nationwide receive antibiotic prescriptions, according to the CDC. The new guidelines call for antibiotics only if pneumonia, which is often caused by bacteria in the lungs, is suspected.

Sore throats are responsible for 12 million visits each year. Although the cause is usually viral, antibiotics are prescribed at “most visits,” according to the CDC. The streptococcus bacteria is the most likely cause of a sore throat, and the new guidelines call for a positive strep test before prescribing antibiotics.

Nasal and sinus congestion result in about 4.3 million visits annually. Most sinusitis cases start out with a viral infection, but obstructed sinuses can, over time, lead to a secondary bacterial infection in less than 2 percent of cases. There is no simple test to tell whether the infection is viral or bacterial, and the CDC recommends that doctors wait at least 10 days before prescribing antibiotics unless the patient has a fever higher than 102.2 degrees, particularly nasty nasal discharge, facial pain that lasts for more than three consecutive days or illness that improves and then worsens.

The common cold, which is always caused by a range of viruses, is responsible for 37 million visits per year. Even though experts agree that antibiotics should never be given for a cold, they are prescribed in about 30 percent of cases, according to the CDC.

The new guidelines put doctors in the position of requiring patients, who are already wheezing, sniffling and aching, to forgo a treatment they may be convinced will help them get better. While this might seem a difficult task for physicians to achieve, experts said much progress has already been made.”

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.

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 in his 20’s who had eczema on his arms. He too was concerned how others viewed him. He covered up his arms most of the time.

– 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.

Other Health Issues

The following is a list of some health issues that a man may be experiencing.

  • autoimmune illnesses – arthritis, MS
  • emotional issues – fears, anxiety, depression, prolonged grief, angry outbursts
  • heart conditions
  • respiratory illnesses – asthma, shortness of brief
  • sexual dysfunction
  • digestive issues – bloating, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, indigestion
  • headaches and migraines
  • allergies – seasonal, food, hay fever
  • chronic colds and coughs
  • urinary and bladder infections, painful or difficult urination
  • muscular aches and pain
  • memory loss, loss of concentration, restlessness
  • not recovered from an injury
  • just not feeling well
  • what is bothering you

Healing With Homeopathy

It doesn’t matter how a man comes to homeopathy. It is just good that the man has come in. If you, or a man who you love or care for, is having a health concern, please look into how homeopathy can be of help to you. Either contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com   I offer a 15+ minute complimentary Get Acquainted Phone Call.

Letting Others Know About Homeopathy

I like to talk to people about homeopathy, and how it can be helpful for them. This can be for first aid care, acute illnesses like flus and colds, and for chronic conditions.

Talking To A Woman At A Health Food Store

The other day when I was in a health food store, I saw a woman standing by the section of the homeopathic remedies. I said to her, 150 - boiron arnica I am a homeopath. What remedies do you have in your hand, and why? She said the other day she had dropped something heavy on her left foot, and had been using Arnica montana cream to help with the bruising pain. (Arnica montana is very helpful in first aid situations when there is a feeling of bruising and soreness.) She has used the Arnica montana cream for past injuries. and it has helped. Her holistic health practitioner had suggested taking Arnica montana orally, meaning taking the pellets. I agreed that it is better to take the homeopathic remedy orally than topically, and the 30C potency would be better to use than the 6C potency.

She asked what is the difference between the two potencies. I explained that when making the homeopathic remedy the 30C goes through the potentization process 30 times, which means it has been diluted and successed (shaken), diluted, successed 30 times. The 6C potency goes through that process 6 times. In the 6C potency, there still remains some of the physical substance that this homeopathic remedy is made from. The 12C potency is the first potency in which there is no longer any physical substance of the remedy. It is the energetic pattern of the substance it is made from.

I then asked her what the other remedy was that she was holding. Thuja occidentalis. I have warts, she said.  Warts was what was written on the vial. Yes, Thuja occidentalis is helpful for warts, but you really want to look at the whole picture of you, and not just the part, meaning the warts. I said to her if Thuja occidentalis doesn’t help you, don’t give up on homeopathy, go see a homeopath.

I offered her my card.

Educating People On Homeopathy

I find that I talk to people quite often. It is getting homeopathy out to the public, to those people who are holistically health conscious, and to those who may not be feeling as well as they would like to be feeling. Here are a few things that I find myself often saying to people who I meet. They may be self treating, and don’t know how to take the remedy, nor how often to take it.

homeopathy2I may tell someone how to take the homeopathic remedy – tip 3 pellets into the lid of the vial, and then tip them into the mouth, letting them dissolve. Take them on a clean mouth – wait 30 minutes after eating, brushing your teeth, or drinking something before taking the homeopathic remedy, and then wait 30 minutes after taking the homeopathic remedy to eat, brush you teeth, or drink something.

I may tell someone how often to take the homeopathic remedy –  several doses over a couple of days. If feeling better. stop. The remedy is still working. You don’t need to finish the vial.

I may tell someone that if the pellets fall on the ground, throw away. Don’t put them back into the vail.

And I am often asked – I have this        health concern (fill in the blank, such as asthma, chronic fatigue, eczema, digestive issues, headaches, chronic ear infections, difficulty focusing, anxiety and others), what do you suggest? I say, I need to find out more of how this is for you. Let’s say two people come to see me, both have headaches. There are the general symptoms of the headaches, but each person experiences the headache differently and uniquely to them, and would need a homeopathic remedy that fits them. The remedy is for the person, who has a headache. The homeopathic remedy is not for the headache. So I would need to find out how it is for you.      .

Healing With Homeopathy

Self treating may be a way that someone first uses homeopathic remedies, specifically the use of Arnica montana. And it is a way that introduces people to homeopathy. Homeopathy is helpful for so many health concerns that people experience these days. Homeopathy looks at the individual person in how they experience what bothers them. A homeopathic remedy is used that is similar to the individual person, simulating their own healing process. And the person feels better.

What can I let you know about homeopathy?

How can I be of help to you?

Please contact me here through the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I have a 15 + minute complimentary Get Acquainted Call. At this time, we could talk about any of your questions or concerns.

Acute Illnesses and Chronic Conditions – Homeopathy Heals

People say they are sick, with a cold, a flu, asthma, eczema, for example. In this blog post, I want to differentiate between an acute and a chronic illness. Homeopathy is helpful in both of these types of illnesses.

Acute

An acute illness is defined as being one of a sudden onset, lasting for a short period of time. Either the person recovers, or dies. It is a one time occurrence. Some acutes are:

  • Colds
  • Influenzascartoon cold
  • Viruses
  • Infections
  • Childhood diseases

 

 

 

With homeopathic care, these acute illnesses don’t last as long, and symptoms don’t linger. Often, in a flu season, there are several homeopathic remedies that are healing for that particular flu strain that year.  If you are not moving through an acute illness, then homeopathy will be very helpful.

Sometimes an acute illness can develop into a chronic condition, such as with earaches, stomachaches, sore throats, and swollen glands. We hear this a lot with children, having one earache after another. Having earaches has become a chronic condition.

Chronic

Chronic conditions are ongoing health concerns. There are flare ups of the symptoms, and at other times the person may feel well. It is not necessarily life threatening, but it is ongoing. Often, at the onset, it might not have been noticed, but over time, it has gotten progressively worse, lowering the person’s immune system.  The person tends to live with the chronic health concern the best way they can. And perhaps, the person is using medication to help ease or to palliate the symptoms, pains, or discomforts, but the medication is not truly healing the health concern. Some chronic health concerns are:

  • Arthritis
  • Auto immune diseases
  • Asthma
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Coughs
  • Depression, anxiety, panic attacks
  • Insomnia
  • Skin eruptions – eczema, psoriasischronic disease
  • Digestive issues
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Menstrual difficulties
  • Fertility issues
  • Men’s issues
  • Behavioral challenges
  • Fears
  • Chronic earaches, stomachaches, sore throats, swollen glands
  • Just don’t feel well
  • A health concern developed after an accident or injury, such as chronic pain
  • A health concern that developed after an emotional loss or trauma

Homeopathy Heals Acute and Chronic Health Concerns

Homeopathy is wonderful for both acute and chronic health concerns. With each of these health concerns, the homeopath listens, observes, and uncovers, with the aim to understand what this person’s suffering is like. Then a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what the person is experiencing in their health concern. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, their immune system, and heals at the core of where the symptoms, discomfort and pain stem from.
