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, 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.
I 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.
