Feeling Injured – And Another Class On First Aid And Homeopathy

I am happy to be offering another class on the use of homeopathic remedies for first aid situations, such as with falls, burns, insect bites and sprains on July 13th at Lifelong Yoga.  In this post and in the class, I am going to talk a bit about injuries that may have occurred in the past, how they can affect one’s health, and how homeopathy can be helpful in their healing.

The information for the class is below. (If you are not local to the San Diego area, and are interested in a class on the use of homeopathic remedies for first aid, we could schedule on online/virtual class.  Contact me if you are interested. )

First Aid

When we have a first aid situation we look for relief and help in the healing.  We may go to our physician, our chiropractor, our acupuncturist, our homeopath, our massage therapist or other healing practitioners we see.  We get the help we need at the time of the injury/trauma.

Yesterday, a long time patient of mine, called because she was having severe pain in her broken heartright buttocks area. She had been doing a lot of physical work, cleaning out her house, and recently a close friend of hers had passed away. This loss brought back feelings of grief and sadness that she had after losing her mother and her husband years ago. She had seen her acupuncturist, and now was calling her homeopath.  She was experiencing physical symptoms, thinking that she had over done things, and there was an emotional component, the loss.  Homeopathy was addressing both of these – the physical and the emotional.

Another Patient

Sometimes, there may be lingering effects from the trauma we experienced, even though we may have gotten help at that time. Or, we may have not known that there was a trauma when something happened.

For example, a patient of mine had pain in her abdominal area. It wasn’t menstrual pains or cramping, although it did occur right before her period. She had it checked out by her physician, had some tests done, such as a colonoscopy, and nothing was found to be the cause of what she was experiencing.

When she came to see me, and was telling me about her situation,  she mentioned that she had had two cesarean sections, and that there had been a lot of scar tissue developed from both of the  c- sections. This was a trauma, and could be thought of as a first aid situation, at the time. The given homeopathic remedy (Bellis perennis) helped her tremendously with the pains she experienced – the pains became less and eventually not at all. This was an example of an injury, a first aid situation that had happened, and the lingering effects from it.

Learning About The Patient

When I meet with a patient, I often ask what was going on at the time when these symptoms started. This could be an event or situation in their life, a trauma of some kind, such as a fall, surgery, an emotional loss, or a job loss, for example.  globuli-3163133_960_720Whatever it is, can often be the start or the onset to what is bothering the person, and which brought them in for homeopathy. And in a way, this trauma is a first aid situation at the time, and from it a more chronic type of condition has developed.

The following types of traumas and injuries may also be considered in the category of first aid. Homeopathy can be helpful to them, if it is something that happened recently, months, or even years ago.

  • emotional trauma – loss of a loved one, a job, a home, war experience
  • surgeries, procedures and dental work
  • falls, concussions, head injuries, car accidents, sports injuries
  • giving birth and the delivery – not well since for the mother, and the behaviors of the baby
  • food poisoning
  • exposure to toxins
  • drug and vaccine reactions

Are You Experiencing Lingering Effects From A Trauma?

I have written  about traumas before, and have talked about the use of the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana in many of my posts when there has been a trauma.

Recently, when I was with a friend, we were talking about traumas, physical and emotional ones. And that often there can be lingering effects from the trauma, such as a person having chronic pain, flare up of certain symptoms, feeling emotionally  distressed, regressing in behaviors and development, and more.

Traumas

A trauma can be physical and emotional. Some physical traumas can be from surgeries, giving birth, falls, vaccine reactions, accidents, and experiencing a down and outnatural disaster. Some emotional traumas could be the loss of a loved one through death, an illness, or a divorce; the experience of war; the experience of abuse, emotionally and physically; the experience of loss of a job or home; being in a natural disaster; and exposure to toxins in the air, water, soil, or environment.

(I have natural disasters in both categories. We are seeing more of them occurring.)

The person may have sought out help at the time of the trauma or soon afterwards,  and may have also used homeopathy.  The trauma may have been looked at as a first aid situation, looking at taking care of what has happening at that present time. And the help that the person received was beneficial to them. Yet, for some people there may be a lingering from the trauma, showing up in physical symptoms, emotional states of anxiety, fear, sadness or depression, or a feeling of just not being well.  The person may even say, I have not been well since “this” happened.

When I meet with a patient, I often ask what was going on when this (the symptoms or state of not being well) started.  In a way, I am looking for a cause. A cause in the sense that this may be the initiator, the start, to why they are not feeling well.

In My Practice

These are some of the traumas, and lingering states I have seen in my practice:

  • a woman who had two c-sections. A lot of scar tissue developed, and she experienced a lot of pain and discomfort during her menstrual cycle.
  • a concussion from a car accident. The woman experienced vertigo and difficulty focusing and the use of computers was very difficult for her.
  • a woman who was exposed to toxins after being in an area where there had been fires.
  • a boy who had reactions to vaccines.
  • a woman who lost her her husband, and was deeply grieving.
  • a man who hasn’t been well since having the flu.

Healing

In a lot of circumstances, healing takes time. We don’t always want to hear that it takes time. We want to feel better right now.  We don’t like to not feel well.

When we experience a trauma, it may affect us on many levels, and it may also bring up states and feelings we had experienced in the past. We may use different healing modalities to help us, such as homeopathy, message, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, energy body work, therapy, chiropractic, western medicine and more. The healing is a process, and in some ways it can be a deep learning experience about ourselves.
