It Is Always A Good Time To Use Homeopathy

With the start of new school year, I wanted to repost this blog. Even though I am talking about children in this blog, homeopathy is wonderful for all ages.

*******

When I speak to a mom/dad/grandparent about their child, I almost always say this is a good time for your child to come in for homeopathic care. I say this whether the child is a baby (3 1/2 month old), young child, teenage child or 20 something child, or older. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.

Why Is It A Good Time?

a-smile-333604_960_720It is a good time because the child is so young. The health issue that the child is experiencing is not entrenched; they have not had it for a long period of time. Children have a very strong vital force/vitality and respond well to homeopathy.

It is a good time because the child may have just started using medications, or is not using them at all. These medications may help with the symptoms and ease the discomfort, the behavior, the breathing, the itching, but they are not really healing. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

It is a good time because the child is still growing and developing their bodies, their minds, and who they are as a person. As parents, we want the best for our children, in their health and in their life.

It is a good time because often when a child is doing better, it affects the whole family unit, healing the family.

It is a good time because – I have a soft spot for children. I guess this is my “because”.

What Do Parents Call About?

These are some of the health concerns parents have called me about:

  • ear aches and ear infections – the child may have been on several courses of antibiotic.
  • digestive issues, such as acid re flux, spitting up, stomachaches after eating, chronic diarrhea, difficulty eating certain foods, constant nausea
  • skin eruptions – eczema, warts, rashes
  • continually crying and seeming to be in pain or discomfort
  • breathing difficulties, such as asthma
  • difficultly focusing on school work
  • behavioral issues – angry outbursts, tantrums, pulling inside oneself by withdrawing
  • chronic coughs
  • menstrual issues – painful cramps, being very emotional and weepy
  • reactions to vaccinations
  • sleep issues – insomnia, nightmares
  • fears
  • just not feeling well

A SIMPLE EXAMPLE OF HOMEOPATHY – LIKE CURES LIKE

When someone has a cold or an allergy, their nose may be continually runny. Their eyes are  tearing, burning, and stinging. They want to rub their eyes to ease the discomfort. The homeopathic remedy Allium cepa, made from the red onion, can be very helpful for someone who is experiencing these types of symptoms, whether it is a cold or allergies.

Allium cepa is helpful because it is similar to what the person is experiencing. (LIKE CURES LIKE) When you think about what happens when you cut an onion, your eyes tear, burn and sting. And your nose runs. The crying isn’t like when you are sad, which is just tearing, but here, you want to rub and wipe your eyes.

HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the person, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits this person. This applies to someone who is experiencing behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.

It is always good to check with your physician. Homeopathy can be used alongside western medicine.

Healing The Soil That Nourishes You

I hear so often that someone is experiencing a certain health concern. At that time, it is a flare up. The person may experience flare ups fairly often. They may feel alright between the flare ups, but the flare ups continue to occur.

Three People

Within the last few weeks, I have heard about, and spoken to several people who have been experiencing flare ups of their health concern. They are:

  • A woman who has shingles. This is not her first time having shingles. This time it has lasted more than the usual 7 weeks. She is in a lot of discomfort and pain.
  • A one year old boy who has ongoing earaches. His doctor may be considering putting tubes in his ears. His mother tells me that the boy is fussy all the time, just not a happy baby. He has a sensitive nature, she says, and sensitive to foods that he eats, and to the foods that she eats. He is being breastfed, which is very good thing. When I look at him, I see red around his eyes, and he just doesn’t smile very much.
  • A man who experiences ongoing digestive issues, whether having diarrhea very often, or just not feeling well after eating certain foods. He may have been diagnosed with, or given the label of, colitis or irritable bowel syndrome.

I am sure these three people are receiving health care, especially when they are having a flare up and are not feeling well. To me as a homeopath, when someone is experiencing flare ups often, it means that the root cause of what is bothering the person has not been healed.

Nourishing Soil

I think of soil. When we garden, we want good, nourishing, life giving and sustaining soil in soilwhich our vegetables, flowers, trees, shrubs, berries, fruits, and anything else we plant can grow. Why wouldn’t we want that kind of soil for ourselves?

The soil of these three people is not well, not nourishing, not life giving to them. We can give medicines to help relieve and alleviate their symptoms, but most of the time, these medicines are not healing the person; the medicines may be easing the symptoms, for a time period, but not healing.

flowers-113503_1280Homeopathy heals at the root cause of what is bothering someone. It is healing the soil of the person. When the soil is healthier, the person experiences less flare ups of their health concern, to possibly no flare ups. The person can bloom and flourish.

Homeopathy To Heal

When I meet with a patient, I observe them, listening to their language, and how they express themselves. With a child, I ask the mother and father to tell and to actually show me how the child responds and behaves to what is happening to them. What is the expression of the child? How do they move? What sounds do they make? For any age of the patient, it is always finding out about the individual person.

I would also want to know:

  • What would they say is bothering them the most?
  • How do they experience what bothers them?
  • What was happening before they started to have this health concern – shingles, ear infection, or colitis.
  • What happens right before the flare ups?
  • How do they experience the shingles, ear infection or colitis – what makes it better or worse?
  • For the child, what was the mother’s pregnancy like? How was the birth like?
  • Temperament?
  • Fears?
  • Other issues and sensitivities?

What Is Your Soil Like?

What is the soil like in your garden? Do you, or a loved one, experience an ongoing health issue with flare ups, such as ear infections, digestive issues, shingles, herpes, headaches, eczema or other skin eruptions, menstrual issues, chronic pain, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, or any other health concern?

Let’s talk and see how homeopathy would be a good fit for you. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

I Invite You, You May Get A YES

At the end of each of my blogs, I always write – I would be happy to talk with you about how homeopathy can be of help to you. I invite you, I encourage you to contact me.

Potential Patients

I have patients say to me that they have mentioned homeopathy to a family member or a friend. Other motther offeringhealth practitioners that I know, also have told me that they have mentioned homeopathy to some of their patients. My response always is please let the person know that I would be happy to talk with them.

What I know of some of these potential patients:

  • A young woman who has had an averse reaction to the to Gardasil vaccine (HPV).
  • A woman who experiences constant pain.
  • A boy who is having difficulty in school.
  • A woman who experiences vertigo.
  • A man who is having severe headaches, which is affecting his vision.
  • A young girl who has eczema on her hands.
  • A baby who is having digestive issues – after he eats, he spits up and is in constant pain.
  • A woman who is having hot flashes that are affecting her sleep.
  • An older woman who is looking for natural ways to help her in her health.
  • A woman who is having menstrual issues.
  • A woman who experiences episodes of depression.
  • A young women who feels overly anxious and emotional. (There is nothing wrong with feeling emotional, but she is not liking it.)

The list could go on. And you can see it is people of all ages, and for all different kinds of health concerns.

I know that some of these people have done other healing modalities, western medicine included. They may be taking a prescribed medication, which is alleviating or palliating their symptoms, but not necessarily healing. What is bothering them still continues to bother them. (Homeopathy can be used along with western medications.)

Homeopathy 

In the consultation, the homeopath listens, observes, and witnesses what is bothering the person, what their suffering is like. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to the person’s suffering. The word homeopathy means “similar suffering”. (The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like.)

The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, their immune system, and heals at the core, at the source, of where the symptoms, the discomfort, and the pain come from. Homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances, are non-toxic and gentle in their healing.

I Invite You

Over the last year, I have entered several juried art shows. I was accepted into a few of the  bird flyingshows, and some I was not accepted into. My thinking was: enter the shows I was interested in. If I didn’t enter them, it would be a definite NO. If I did enter them, it could be a YES! I would not get a YES unless I moved forward and took action. So I did.

I invite you to take action and to find out about how homeopathy can be healing for you or a loved one. See if it can be a YES for you. You don’t know unless you do it, otherwise, it is a definite NO, and you may just continue to not feel well.

Either contact me through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com  and let’s talk to see how homeopathy may help you. I do work with patients who are not local to the San Diego area by using Skype.

Homeopathic Healing Before/During/After Pregnancy

In the community that I live in, I have been seeing more young families. Couples who have had their first child within the last two years, and now some of them are having their second child. It is fun to see these babies and families.

I am also seeing more women patients in my homeopathic practice who are pregnant and who have young children. Homeopathy is very helpful before, during, and after pregnancy. These days people are looking for safe, natural, non-toxic, and holistic healing forms of medicine for themselves, and for their families. Homeopathy fits this so well.

Having Homeopathic Treatment Before/During/After Pregnancy

When a pregnant mother has homeopathic treatment, she is helping herself as well as helping and strengthening the health of her unborn baby. And when a nursing mother is using homeopathy, the baby is also benefiting from this care. In a way, it is treating two people for the “price” of one. When the mother is healing and well, the baby will be well and healthy. Homeopathy is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

These are some of the health concerns that may bring a woman to homeopathy before, during, and after her pregnancy:

  • wanting to get pregnant/fertility issues
  • morning sickness
  • extreme fatigue
  • sleeping issues
  • chronic colds, coughs, flus
  • increased blood sugars
  • increase in blood pressure
  • skin eruptions – acne, rashes, eczema, psoriasis
  • urinary tract infections
  • emotional issues – fears, anxiousness, depression, grief, sadness
  • exasperation of an ongoing health issue  – allergies, asthma, headaches, migraines
  • postpartum depression
  • labor issues
  • recovery from vaginal births and caesarean sections
  • breastfeeding issues
  • health of the baby
  • an ongoing health concern that the mother experiences and may be receiving other treatment for. (Homeopathy works well along with allopathic/western medicine.)

It is important to receive prenatal care from a health practitioner – ob/gyn, midwife, nurse practitioner, osteopath, and/or others. Homeopathy can be used along with this care.

Two Women  

I had started to see one woman as a patient before she became pregnant, and have continued to see her throughout her pregnancy. The homeopathic care has helped with her morning sickness, extreme fatigue, heart flutterings, colds, and with what brought her originally in for homeopathy. She also sees an ob/gyn, a chiropractor and other health practitioners.

I have seen another woman off and on – before, during her pregnancy and after the baby was born. Homeopathy helped her with the original reason she came in for. It also helped her when she experienced morning sickness and wanted to increase her breast milk supply.

This includes fathers as well as mothers. I invite you to contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

I Am Often Asked – Can You Help Me With _____?

I think we want to know if a healing modality will help us before we start on the process. We want to know if it has helped others who experience or suffer from the same health concern that we do. So often, that is the question I am asked – Have you treated other hand-838975_960_720people with ________? Can you help me?

Because everyone is different, and different even if they experience the same health concern, such as eczema. The answer to that above question, is yes and no. I may have helped someone who has that ___________, (the yes) but I am almost sure that that person experienced the health concern differently deep down, uniquely to them, than the person who is asking me about it now (the no). There are the general symptoms and experiences of that health concern, such as itching, redness, and oozing with eczema, but the core of what it is like for each person is different.

We Want A Good “Pudding”

So still to answer that concern about getting help through homeopathy, the answer is what one of my teachers/mentors/colleagues has said “the proof is in the pudding”. Is the patient better? That is always it – is the patient better? That is the proof.

We want what brought the person in for homeopathy to be better, along with a better sense of general well being. And often, other health concerns are better as well, such as with women, there may be improvement in their menstrual cycle, even though that is not what they came in for. We want in a healing, that the totality, the wholeness of the person is better.

Some examples of a healing, of a good “pudding”:

  • When I hear that a young woman who feels nauseous all the time, starts to have a tremendous appetite after starting the homeopathic remedy that fits her, I think this is a good start to her healing.
  • When I see that a woman who had a severe concussion in a car accident less than a year ago, making it difficult to do things she normally does, starts to be able to focus on activities better pebbles-1031167_960_720without feeling nauseous and dizzy, I think this is a good start to her healing.
  • When I see a young boy, who has been on round and round of antibiotics for an ear infection, no longer experiencing ear infections, I think this is a good healing.
  • When I see a woman who experiences great discomfort during her pregnancy – morning sickness, headaches, dizziness, heart palpitations, fogginess – experience a lessening of all of these, I think this is a good healing.
  • When I see a woman have depressive thoughts, and wants to just stay inside away from other people, start to open up to to the outside world, becoming involved with people, and speaking who she is, I think this is a good healing.

I Invite You To Tell Me More

Over the years, people have specifically asked me if homeopathy can be help for: headaches, metabolism issues, allergies, weight loss, severe cramping during their periods, insomnia, weakness and fatigue, eczema on their hands, acting out at school, help with arthritic pain, fibromyalgia type symptoms, difficulty focusing, anxiety, mood swings, and more. I say to these people, yes homeopathy can help you, and tell me more.

I invite you to ask – Can you help me with __________? And then to tell me more.

It Is Always A Good Time To Use Homeopathy For Children – Babies, Young Children, Teenagers, Young Adults

When I speak to a mom/dad/grandparent about their child, I almost always say this is a good time for your child to come in for homeopathic care. I say this whether the child is a baby (3 1/2 month old), young child, teenage child or 20 something child. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.

Why Is It A Good Time?

children playingIt is a good time because the child is so young. The health issue that the child is experiencing is not entrenched; they have not had it for a long period of time. Children have a very strong vital force/vitality and respond well to homeopathy.

It is a good time because the child may have just started using medications, or is not using them at all. These medications may help with the symptoms and ease the discomfort, the behavior, the breathing, the itching, but they are not really healing. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

It is a good time because the child is still growing and developing their bodies, their minds, and who they are as a person. As parents, we want the best for our children, in their health and in their life.

It is a good time because often when a child is doing better, it affects the whole family unit, healing the family.                                                                                                                             a-smile-333604_960_720

It is a good time because – I have a soft spot for children. I guess this is my “because”.

What Do Parents Call About?

These are some of the health concerns that parents have called me about that their child is experiencing (and adults experience these types of health concerns too):

  • ear aches and ear infections – being on course after course of antibiotics
  • digestive issues, such as acid re flux, spitting up, stomachaches after eating, chronic diarrhea, difficulty eating certain foods, constant nausea
  • skin eruptions – eczema, warts, rashes
  • continually crying and seeming to be in pain or discomfort
  • breathing difficulties, such as asthma
  • difficultly focusing on school work
  • behavioral issues – angry outbursts, tantrums, pulling inside oneself by withdrawing
  • chronic coughs
  • menstrual issues – painful cramps, being very emotional and weepy
  • reactions to vaccinations
  • sleep issues – insomnia, nightmares
  • just not feeling well

Seeing The Individual Child

Homeopathy is a form of medicine that addresses the person as a whole being and as an individual. It is finding out what bothers the person, and how they experience what          youth-320987_960_720bothers them – uniquely to them.

For example, the child may have asthma. After hearing how the child experiences the asthma and how it affects them, along with hearing about the child’s emotional life, their fears, their dreams, what they like to do, and their health history, the homeopathic practitioner gives a homeopathic remedy that fits this child. Another child who also experiences asthma, would most likely need a different homeopathic remedy, a homeopathic remedy that fits them.

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the child, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits the child. This applies to a child who experiences behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.

Allergies – Homeopathy Heals

Allergies.

Many people experience allergies:

  • They experience sneezing, itchy nose and ears, eyes watering and tearing, nasal and  woman blowing nosesinus congestion, difficulty breathing, closing off of the windpipe, stomach aches, diarrhea, itchy skin, or skin eruptions.
  • The allergic reaction can be from dust, cat dander, pollen, foods (milk, nuts, peanuts, shellfish, strawberries), clothing, bees, mosquitoes, toxins in our environment, latex, and medicines (Penicillin, Sulfa, Erythromycin).
  • It can be a one time event, as in a bee sting, eating a certain food, or using a certain medicine. From that time on, exposure to these substances are avoided.
  • For some, the allergic reaction can be life threatening, such as with a food allergy, peanut-995053_960_720like peanuts or shellfish.
  • The allergic reaction could be seasonal, occurring at a particular time of year, such as spring time with hay fever. But they can also occur periodically during other seasons.
  • People watch their diets, avoiding the foods that they are allergic to or have a sensitivity to.
  • Babies may show an allergy/sensitivity to some foods, such as milk and other dairy products. A reaction may manifest as having digestive issues, nasal congestion and/or eczema, which may continue through their childhood and adult years.

(If there is the potential of a life threatening allergic reaction, it is always good to avoid being exposed to that substance, and to be prepared if there is a reaction by using  western medications and treatments. It is always good to be vigilant, cautious, and pro-active about the allergy, especially if it is life threatening.)

Healing With Homeopathy

I have noticed in my practice that people who experience allergies, have been experiencing them for many years. The allergy usually seems to affect the person at a certain time of the year. Someone may have come in for homeopathic care for a particular health concern, not necessarily allergies, and as they are healing the allergies are also getting better. They are not having the periodical/seasonally reaction. Or, their sensitivity to a certain food becomes less. Homeopathy is always addressing the whole person, and that is what heals, the whole person. As the person becomes healthier, the sensitivity/allergy becomes less bothersome.

One patient of mine experiences a seasonal skin eruption during the February/March months. The skin eruptions were on both of her arms and was extremely itchy. As she was healing with homeopathy, each year this skin eruption became less and less. This last time, the skin eruption was on one of the arms and was not itchy at all.
