Offering Classes – Learning How Homeopathy Can Be Helpful For Baby And Mom

Periodically, I offer classes on homeopathy.  It is a way to introduce people to  homeopathy, giving them some specific homeopathic remedies that can be useful for themselves and their family. Usually, the classes I have offered have been on using homeopathy for first aid situations. And I have written blog posts about the use of homeopathy in first aid situations.

Lately, I have been offering a class for moms and babies. The class is held at the San Diego Breastfeeding Center, in La Mesa, California. The class is titled: Homeopathy – A Natural Healing for Baby and Mom.  The next class is scheduled for Saturday, November 16th, 11 am – 12:30 pm.

This is the link to pre-register for the class.

The San Diego Breastfeeding Center’s website is  www.sdbfc.com if you want to know more about their services. They offer lactation consultations, classes and other  resources for families.

*******

Description of the class:

Homeopathy – A Natural Healing for Baby and MomHomeopathy

1 hour 30 minutes @ $35.00

Pamela Hird Klein, PDHom(UK), a practitioner of homeopathy, will talk about the use of homeopathy for mom and baby, covering colic, hemorrhoids, breastfeeding issues, recovery from birth, and more. Learn what homeopathy is and how to use it. A handout will be given.

*******

Over the years, I have worked with moms who were experiencing certain issues during their pregnancy, and after birth, including breastfeeding issues. Some of these are: thrush for both baby and mom; baby in breech position; shortage of milk supply; recovery from a c-section; and pains and discomfort from trauma in the abdominal/pelvic area. Homeopathy was very helpful to these moms.

*******

I will be offering this class again, if you are not able to make it on November 16th.

I am also open to doing classes on homeopathy whether it is this topic, first aid, family care or your suggestion, as a virtual on line class, or if you are local to San Diego and would like to host a class in your home. Contact me through this blog or my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  And if I can be of help, homeopathically, to you or your family, please let me know.

Treating The Child With Homeopathy Is Treating The Family

I have a soft spot for children. I feel that homeopathy can help children immensely, whether for physical ailments or behavioral issues.  And when I see a child as a patient, I know that the family will be helped as well. The child is doing better, then the family is doing better. In a way, by treating the child, the whole family is also being treated.

Often, there is a child in the family that is having difficulties. So much of the parent’s and other family member’s time and energy are directed to this child. It could be to help the child with their physical complaint; to prepare a particular diet; to handle behavioral issues and responses; to monitor their environment; and/or to monitor the other family members behaviors and responses. This all takes away from the other children in the family, from the child involved because they are being handled almost with “kid gloves”, and from the parents themselves, as individuals, and as a couple. Everything, and everyone is focused on this child.

A Family Heals

With a healing, the child is doing better, and there doesn’t need to be so much focus on them.  There maybe another paper dolls familymember of the  family, in which attention can now be placed. This member may have been very quiet about their needs, been in the background because there was not enough resources, time, or energy  for them. They needed to not “rock the boat”, not “make waves”. Now, their needs can be met.  This member could be another child or one or both of the parents.  There is more – time, energy, space, love – for each member of the family.  A family heals.

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy does this so well – the healing of the child, and the healing of the family.  (The initial member of the family that is helped first could be any member, not just a child, and with their healing the family unit is also healing.)

In my homeopathic practice, I have seen children for various health concerns. Some of these concerns are: hyperactivity, difficulty sleeping, grouchiness, defiant responses, asthmatic symptoms, persistent coughs, bed wetting, fears, nightmares, nose bleeds, eczema, chronic stomach aches, and menstrual difficulties (teenage girls). With the child’s healing, the parents, and the whole family are doing better.

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.

I would be happy to talk further about how homeopathy can be of help for any acute or chronic health concerns you, or a loved one may be experiencing. I see people of all ages. Either leave a comment below or contact me through my website, http://www.homeopathytoheal.com  I offer a 15 complimentary phone consultation.

WHAT IS YOUR GUT SAYING? – Homeopathy Heals Symptoms of the Gut

Listen to your gut. What does your gut say?

Often we make statements like: What does my intuition say? How do I really feel about this? Is this right or wrong for me? Is it a good feeling or a bad feeling? What is the Universe saying to me? What does my gut say?

What does your gut say? When it is not functioning well.

We hear a lot about the gut. We hear about children and adults having food allergies. We hear about people having sensitivities to certain foods such as gluten, dairy and peanuts. We hear about leaky gut syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other digestive issues.  And we hear about all sorts of diets to help with our gut.

For people who have gut and digestive issues, this is often their area of sensitivity. This is where they manifest symptoms when they are feeling stressed, upset, nervous, anxious, depressed, and emotional. Some of the symptoms experienced are vomiting, diarrhea, breathing difficulties with food allergies, skin eruptions, anxiousness, burping, passing gas, acid reflux, bad breath, stomach pains, cramping, loss of appetite, eating disorders and more. These symptoms can be very annoying, disruptive, fatiguing, tiring in that here we go again, restrictive, embarrassing, painful, controlling, and maybe even life threatening. They take over a person’s life.

 gut 2GUT WRENCHING

So what is the gut saying? It is saying there is something that is not right. There is an imbalance, a disturbance, and it is being shown through these gut symptoms.

Homeopathy can be very helpful for these kinds of gut issues.  The homeopath listens, observes, and uncovers what this imbalance and disturbance is for the individual person, along with hearing more about the gut symptoms. With an understanding of all of this information, the homeopath then selects a homeopathic remedy that is similar to the person in their totality.  It is remedy for the person, not for the symptoms. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, and with this healing the disturbance quiets down, and the gut symptoms lessen, till they are no longer a problem.

Homeopathy was very helpful for a woman who had bouts of diarrhea almost daily. She never quite knew when they would occur. She would plan her outings based on having access to a bathroom, because when she needed a bathroom, she needed it fast and NOW. She knew where all the bathrooms were located wherever she went. After taking the homeopathic remedy that was similar to her, (One of the the main principles of homeopathy is the Law of Similars or Like Cures Like) the bouts of diarrhea become less and less. She could go out, and not have to prepare and know where the bathrooms were located. She also felt much better in herself, able to handle things that happened in her life in a much more constructive way. The remedy was helping in healing her whole being.

What is your gut saying?

If you or someone you love is having on going gut and digestive issues, and have used other medical therapies and/or medications, perhaps it is time to see how homeopathy can be healing for you.  What I have written here, applies to both children and adults.

************

I see that my blog posts are read all over the world. Please, know that I work with people through Skype, if they are not local to the area where I live which is San Diego, California. With any patient, I need to be able to see them and see their expressions, their hands gestures, and their expression of energy.

Homeopathy Helpful for Children who Have Stomachaches (corrected post)

I read this article “Understanding the link between stress and stomach aches in children”. The article talks about how children experience stomachaches in connection to stress, whether it is a new school situation, difficult school environment or change in family life. The article suggests using hypnosis, mindfulness and counseling. I agree with these suggestions. I want to add homeopathy as a way to help with stomachaches.

(Yes, this is a duplicate post. I mistakenly published the wrong one.)

Although I am writing about children, this information applies to adults as well. Adults experience stomachaches from stress too.

The article was in Tuesday, August 27, 2013 edition of the U-T San Diego. It was written by Dr. Rebecca Cherry, associate director of the Motility Center at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, and was originally included in the Growing Up column published by Rady Children’s Hospital. The U-T San Diego was republishing it. Here is the link: http://www.rchsd.org/aboutus/newsroom/growingupcolumns/D022897#.UiExkz8muTq

child with a stomacheache

Homeopathy is healing the person, the whole person. We all have our own sensitivities, and our sensitive areas flare up when we are under stress. Since we are all unique individuals, no two stomachaches are alike. Yes, there are the common symptom of pain, but the root cause or state that the child experiences when having a stomachache is unique to him/her. The healing with homeopathy addresses this root cause, quieting it down. In a way, the stomachache is a sign that something is not right. It is good to listen to signs.

In addition to stomachaches, the child may have diarrhea, bloating, gas, burping, nausea, vomiting, cramping, loss of appetite, overeating, binging, craving center foods, gastric reflux, acid reflux, colic, indigestion, smelly stools and more. There may also be other physical symptoms, as well as emotional and mental ones. Remember, it is the whole person.

Very often, if the non nourishing, stressful environment is changed, the child will be better. Homeopathy calls these non nourishing environments maintaining causes. But if the child is still experiencing stomachaches after there has been a change in the environment, go see a professional homeopath. Actually, you may want to go see a homeopath anyway.

Nux vomica Can Help Colic

I saw that someone reading my blog may have been interested in the topic of Nux vomica and colic. I thought I would address that.

Always in homeopathy, you are matching what the person is experiencing to a homeopathic remedy that is similar. In order to do that, especially with a baby, observation of how the baby is responding to things, what is different in their temperament and their mood compared to their usually temperament, what makes them better or worse, and taking into consideration the mother’s diet and mood, especially if the baby is being breastfed.

Colic can be experienced by an adult too. That may be indigestion. So again it is by observation, and the adult can tell you verbally.

Someone needing Nux vomica would be experiencing:

  • Pain cramping, griping, pressing, sore, bruised.
  • Better: for passing a stool, for hot drinks, for warmth while in bed, for passing wind.
  • Worse: after eating, from coughing, in the morning, during a fever, from wearing tight clothing, when tired, or eating too much or the wrong types of food.
  • Pains coming on after overindulging with food or eating stimulating types of food. Their may be nausea or indigestion.
  • Breastfeed babies – mothers eating too spicy foods or drinking too much coffee, tea or coke.
  • Chilly, and become irritable when gets chilled.
  • Violently angry, impatient, irritable, quarrelsome, nervous, excitable, angry when consoled.
  • Constipation alternating with diarrhea.
  • Constant desire to pass stool, but ineffectual (that is why they are better when passing a stool)
  • Stools are hard, large.
  • Shocked, let down, disappointed.
  • Wants to feel better quickly. Making an intense effort to get comfort NOW.

And always, if this continues it would be good to see your physician or a homeopath.

Benefits of Homeopathic Treatment – Healthy Mother and Baby

I received an email from Narayana Publishers a few days ago, announcing the edition of their newest issue of SPECTRUM OF HOMEOPATHY, a homeopathic publication. The title of this new issue is NEW LIFE-PERINATAL HOMEOPATHY. This particular issue writes up cases of babies and young children who were experiencing different physical and emotional symptoms, such as colic, restlessness at night, difficulty breastfeeding, ear problems, not sleeping well, failure to thrive, eczema and more. Part of the case taking or case uncovering process of these babies and children was to hear about how the mother was before and during her pregnancy. This helped the homeopaths to come to the homeopathic medicine that was most similar to what the baby or child were experiencing.

Since I had mentioned how the state of the mother can affect the baby in two of my posts, I wanted to give you the link to this publication. My two posts are: “Homeopathy: Supporting A Woman Through a Caesarian Birth and Recovery” and “Colic – Homeopathy Can Ease the Discomfort”.  Very often, the mother and the baby may be experiencing the same state during the pregnancy. Homeopathy can be so helpful for both the mother and the baby. And even more helpful, is the mother deciding to have homeopathic treatment before she gets pregnant. Possibly the father as well.

Here is the link. Once on the site, click on NEW LIFE-PERINATAL HOMEOPATHY, and then scroll down to “interactive reading excerpt”, and you can read some of this issue online.
