More (2) Homeopathy Helping During Time Of Coronavirus

I want to clarify a few things from the last post, when I wrote about using the homeopathic remedy Aconite when you feel as they are getting sick.

  • When you are looking for Aconite in the store, the Latin or botanical name might be used, which is Aconitum Napellus. Most homeopaths use the name Aconite, which I will do here.
  • My suggestion of using Aconite is for the first signs of not feeling well: fever, sore throat, dry cough, cough, feeling achy, suddenness of symptoms, anxious. Not feeling well.
  • Aconite will help. But there may be a need for other homeopathic remedies after the use of Aconite. Symptoms might change, and that would call for another homeopathic remedy that fits those symptoms and that state. Seeing a homeopath at that time would be good.
  • It could be that several different homeopathic remedies will be needed during the course of the virus, as I mentioned above. That is what is being seen by homeopaths and by myself. It is part of the healing process.  (See the case I talk about below.)

A FEW PATIENTS

I have seen a few patients over the last month or so who had a cough, had sinus congestion, was feeling tired, and was running a low grade fever.  None of these people were tested for the Coronavirus, but they were not feeling well. We addressed their symptoms homeopathically to help them feel better and to heal. They did feel better.

Most of these people started with one homeopathic remedy, and as the symptoms changed and shifted, another homeopathic remedy was needed. With some, a series of remedies were needed.

For example, the person who had the low grade fever, would experience the fever on and off over a week. She felt very tired and chilled. (It also has been cold and rainy here in San Diego.) Her throat felt scratchy a little bit; there was no cough. Before the fever had started, she had a bloody nose once a day for 4 days. We started with the homeopathic remedy Phosphorus, really because of the bloody nose. Then over the next several days, heart woodenwe used Aconite, Ferrum Phosphoricum, Bryonia, Zincum metallicum, and Phosphoric acid. This chosen remedies were based on how she was feeling: her symptoms, her emotional state, and a dream she had that was unusual for her that she had on two consecutive nights. She was feeling a lot of sadness, sorrow and crying a lot. She ate when she was hungry, and she didn’t eat when she didn’t want to. She took vitamins C, D, A, B at times. Took some cell salts. Stayed hydrated. Took warm baths. Breathed through her nose. Slept. Laid low. Got some sunshine at times. Stayed warm. Went through this, did not get worse. Didn’t suppress the fever. Didn’t take Ibuprofen, Advil, Tylenol or Acetaminophen. There were no chest symptoms. And now she is feeling better.

I don’t know if this was COVID- 19, and actually I don’t think it matters. Homeopathy is a wonderful resource for our health care. It works on assisting our own body’s innate immune system in healing.

We are all so very scared about being sick. To know that there are different healing modalities that can help us if we do become sick can be very comforting.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

Homeopathy can be one of these healing modalities. If someone you know or if yourself  become ill, whether it is this virus or something else, homeopathy can be very helpful and healing. It is always looking at the what is needed for the individual person. blocks spelling homeopathy

If I can be of help to you during this time, or for other health issues, please contact me here through this blog or through my website – www.homeopathytoheal.com. I am working with patients local to San Diego and out of the San Diego area. Because of social distancing, I am seeing everyone via Facetime, WhatsApp, Skype and/or phone. One day very soon, I hope to see people in person.

Be well.

PS – I saw that part of Chris Cuomo’s healing protocol were the use of homeopathic remedies. Again, I am not advocating the remedies that were used for him would be for everyone. When I heard him saying that he had a very high fever and was hallucinating, I thought at that time that the homeopathic remedy Belladonna would be helpful. It turns out that he was given that remedy. I don’t know what potency or strength was used. Belladonna is a homeopathic remedy often used for very high fevers, suddenness of symptoms, flushed and red face, dilated pupils and fevers with hallucinations.

When Antibiotics Don’t Do the Job, Homeopathy Heals

Antibiotics can be very helpful and are very much needed at times. Sometimes though, antibiotics are not helpful or healing for the person. It may be that after using them, the person is not doing better and/or there is a lingering state of ill health.

I have written about antibiotics before in other posts. Recently there were some friends and patients who had some experiences in their health care in which they had used antibiotics. I want to share this with you.

A Friend/Some Patients

A good friend had not being feeling well for awhile. She had a lingering cough, which was  aggravated when she spoke. She had used western medication to help, specifically antibiotics. They had not helped her. When this all started, she did not contact her homeopath. She waited several months later to do so, since she was very involved with family members and their health care. Once she saw her homeopath, she started to do better.

A patient experienced a sensation of fullness in her ear. She said her ear felt very plugged rocksup. This happened after having a cold. She went to her doctor to have the ear looked at. Her doctor said the ear was inflamed and had fluid inside. Antibiotics were proscribed. My patient was going to be flying soon, and was concerned about the ear, so she started the antibiotics. After one day, she had a severe adverse reaction to the antibiotics, and discontinued using them. We took a closer look at how she experienced the plugged ear, giving a homeopathic remedy that helped her. She took her trip and was fine.

A young boy who experienced congestion and discomfort in his ear, had had course after course of antibiotics for an ear infection. (I have written about this boy before.) He would be better for four weeks after a course of antibiotics, and then the same symptoms would return. This happened 4 – 5 times. With homeopathic care, he did much better. There was no return of the symptoms, and he didn’t need to take another course of antibiotics. He was doing very well.

A woman experienced an abscess in scar tissue that was the result of a laparoscopy performed years ago. She had never had any difficulties with the scar tissue before. When the abscess first started, she didn’t seek homeopathic care. As it got worse, becoming inflamed, painful, swollen, and red, she went to the dermatologist, actually to have the abscess drained, and was proscribed antibiotics. The abscess cleared up. About 14 months later, when she was having homeopathic care, not for the abscess, but for her (the totality), the abscess returned. She cared for the area, using hot compresses and taking good care of herself. The abscess resolved and she was much better. Her use of antibiotics may have been suppressive. Using homeopathy helped heal both the abscess and the whole of her.

And A Case Of Dr. Ronald Whitmont’s

In this video, Dr. Ronald Whitmont, a MD and a homeopath, talks about homeopathy and gives a case of a boy who had Lyme’s disease. This boy was helped with homeopathy. Before he had started homeopathic treatment, the boy had had many courses of antibiotics. After each course, the boy was worse.

 

I invite you to contact me if you have a situation in which antibiotics have not helped:

  • The area or symptoms have not resolved at all.
  • You needed to take many courses of antibiotics and are still not better.
  • You have felt worse after taking them.

How Would You Answer These Four Questions?

ice-crystal-64157_960_720How are you not feeling well?

How long have you not been feeling well?

How does this not feeling well affect your life?

How would you like to feel differently?

What would your answers be to these four questions? What would you say?

*******

What Some People Have Said

We are all different in what we say is bothering us. And we are all different in how we experience “not feeling well”. Here is what a few people have said when answering these questions:

  • I am so exhausted. I can’t even vacuum my house. I am so tired. I get up in the morning, and then I need to take a nap very soon afterwards. I would like to have the energy I used to have.
  • I have these skin eruptions. It is eczema. I have always had this. It is always itching and is all over my body. I want this eczema gone!
  • I have had this cough for the last 3 months. Sometimes I have a coughing fit, and then I feel so tired afterwards. I can’t talk too much because I will start coughing. I would like to feel better. I would settle with just not coughing as much.
  • My child goes to school for only half a day. He becomes so upset with snowflakeshimself if he doesn’t do an assignment right, or the way he feels it needs to be done. He will get mad at himself, and sometimes throw things or run away and hide. He takes medication daily, but he still feels this way. I would like him to be happy – to not be so upset with himself, to enjoy school and to have friends.
  • I always have to watch the kinds of foods I eat, otherwise, I have severe stomach pains and diarrhea. I feel so limited in what I can eat. I have to know where all the bathrooms are located when I go out. I would like to be able to eat like everyone else.
  • I have allergies. Every spring I am so congested, and it is difficult to breath. To breath all year round would be great!
  • I have hot flashes at night. I wake up in the middle of the night, feeling very anxious, and then the hot flashes come. I sweat so much. And during the day I feel so anxious too.  No more sweats and hot flashes, that is what I would like.
  • I feel so emotional about things that are happening in my life. I cry all the time. To not be so emotional, or to understand it better.
  • I just don’t feel well. I am tired all the time, and have this cold that just won’t go away. My doctor says, I am fine, but I feel as though I am not fine. To feel well and not be tired would be good.

This Is A Start

What each person said about themselves is a start in learning about them. If they choose to come in for homeopathy, together we go deeper to understand more fully what this “not feeling well” is like for them. We are all different in how we experience “not feeling well”, whether it is a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual complaint.

I invite you to think about these four questions. How would you answer them? Mull them over. Maybe write down what comes to you. And, after you have done that, and you are wanting to feel better, contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com, and let’s get you feeling better.
