Wanting To Be Heard

Wanting to be heard.

I am always reminded of this. With my patients. With my interactions with people. With myself.

We want to be heard. Sometimes we want to be agreed with, to be acknowledged, to be validated, to say out loud what is going around in our heads. to share, to just say.

When I said this to a friend, that I want to be heard, she said we want to be loved. hearts transparent

And we want a safe place to be heard.

When I meet with a patient, finding out what is bothering them, taking their case, many people talk. They usually talk about a lot of things, in addition to what brought them in to homeopathy.

Wanting to be heard:

  • A patient’s mother said to me that this is the first time someone agreed with her that there is a connection between the brain/mind/head and the gut. Her son was my patient.
  • Another patient said, this is the first time a health practitioner has really listened to what I am experiencing with my health.
  • Another asked me how do you feel about this? I answered, you are taking care of your health, and doing what you feel is right for you. I think what the person was really wanting was to open a conversation about something that was bothering them, which was how their family felt about their choices about health, not that she necessarily wanted my opinion.
  • A patient told me when she said to her husband go see Pam, it was not just for his health concern, but for someone to listen to him.
  • A man was telling me about a painful event in his life. He was filled with so many emotions, expressed on his face, through his gestures, and his words.
  • Many times a patient is given a name or a diagnosis to what they are experiencing. They have used different healing modalities, yet are not feeling better. In the homeopathic process, THEIR particular symptoms are heard, along with the general symptoms of the name/diagnosis. I would like to say that they are being heard, not the name/diagnosis.

At the beginning of the appointment, I always ask first, why are you here? What is bothering you? Often, the name or the diagnosis is stated, then the symptoms, and then more about how they experiencing this health issue. These are some of the health issues (the name or diagnosis) that have brought people in for homeopathy: warts, eczema, depression, grief, anxiety, stomachaches, nausea, hormonal issues, menstrual issues, painful to hear sounds of any kind, shingles, fatigue,sinus pressure, coughs, and flus.

I invite you to contact me about a health issue you or a loved one may be experiencing, to see if homeopathy is a healing modality you would like to pursue. You can contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

People Showing An Interest in Homeopathy, And Wanting To Know More

A lot of people I talk to have used the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana. Actually, I think Arnica montana is what  150 - boiron arnicaintroduces a lot of people to homeopathy.

What I Hear From People Who Have Used Arnica Montana

People tell me that they use Arnica montana for all different kinds of situations. One woman has used it when she had sprained her ankle. Another woman mentioned that her friend used Arnica montana when they had knee surgery. A mom has said they she uses Arnica montana when her child falls down at the playground. And a man has said that his dentist very often suggests that he use Arnica montana after he has had dental work, such as a filling or an extraction. In all of these situations, Arnica montana has helped. (Click here to read a blog about Arnica montana.)

When I am talking with someone who has a sprained or strained their arm. leg, ankle or wrist, and they have used Arnica montana, I may mention the homeopathic remedy Ruta grav. Often, this remedy is new to the person. They have not heard of it before. And I may mention that it is better to use homeopathy orally, in pellet form, than to use it topically as a cream or ointment, such as ArnicaGel. Generally, homeopathy is used orally, which promotes a deep healing.

And then I say, there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies.

Over 4000 Homeopathic Remedies

People don’t know that there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies. And it isn’t important that they do know. They know of Arnica montana, and maybe they know of a few other homeopathic remedies, and have used them for a stomach ache, indigestion, pain, a cold, or a fever. They have seen 50 homeopathic remedies at their local health food store. People purchase them, self treat, going by what is printed on the label.

Why I mention that there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies is that there is so much more to homeopathy than helping with bruising, traumas, falls, surgeries, which Arnica montana is so helpful for. Homeopathy does help in first aid and acute care, like colds, flus, stomach aches, AND, homeopathy is so helpful for chronic conditions, where other forms of healing, including western conventional medicine has not helped.

So when I say there are over 4000 homeopathic remedies, what I am saying is – you, who have used homeopathy and it has helped, and you who have shown an interest in homeopathy, why not see how homeopathy can be helpful for other health concerns that you or your loved ones may experience. Such as:

  • chronic ear infections, sore throats, stomach aches, colds.
  • on going nightmares and/or fears.
  • a child who is having difficulty at school in terms of behavior, focusing, or paying attention.
  • bedwetting.
  • menstrual difficulties.
  • migraines and other types of headaches.
  • depression, anxiety, fearfulness, difficulty getting out of the house.
  • skin eruptions – eczema, psoriasis, warts, moles, rashes.
  • digestive issues.
  • fatigue, no energy, tires easily.
  • respiratory difficulties – asthma.
  • allergies – seasonal, foods.
  • muscular aches and pains.
  • not well since.
  • just not feeling well.

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy treats the individual person. To me this one of the wonderful aspects of homeopathy. Homeopathy is truly a spiral of colorsmedicine of the individual. The homeopathic practitioner (the homeopath), through observation, listening, questioning, is finding out how each person experiences their particular health concern. Two people can come in for homeopathic treatment, each having the similar complaint, let say headaches, but underneath, deep down to the root cause, each of these two people experience their headache uniquely to them, and differently from each other. The homeopath is hearing, listening and observing each person.

A homeopathic remedy is given, that is similar to what the person is experiencing. The homeopathic remedy is for the individual. This remedy, one out of 4000, stimulates the person’s own wonderful healing ability. The person is feeling better, their immune system is stronger, and what brought the person in is getting better, such as the headaches, from the example I gave.

I write this blog to educate, to deepen, and to broaden people’s knowledge of homeopathy. I invite those who already have an interest in homeopathy; those who have used homeopathy, finding it helpful; and those who are new to homeopathy and have an interest in holistic medicine, to see how homeopathy can be of help in yours and your loved ones healing. Contact me here through my blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  I would be happy to talk with you, I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

A Talk To A Fibromyalgia Support Group On Homeopathy

A couple of weeks ago, I did a talk on homeopathy to a fibromyalgia support group. I was pleased to have this opportunity to people figures in circletalk to people about homeopathy, and to this group particularly. It was a small group of very interested women. (If any of you who attended the talk are reading this post now, it was nice to meet you all.) What I enjoyed so much was their interest and their involvement. They had a lot of questions, and shared about themselves, about their experiences with their health, and about their lives. This is the kind of talk I like to give, and be part of.

List Of Symptoms

If you google fibromyalgia on the internet, you will see a list of symptoms. I have listed them below. Someone may experience some of these symptoms. Someone may experience all of them. And someone may experience these symptoms, and not have the diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

  • deep muscle pain and soreness
  • morning stiffness
  • flu-like aching
  • radiating pain
  • sensitivity to touch
  • problems sleeping
  • fatigue
  • difficulty thinking clearly
  • difficulty performing every day tasks
  • stress and anxiety
  • depression
  • migraine headaches

This is a list. It doesn’t really say anything about the person. Yes, people who have fibromyalgia may experience these symptoms, but there are other things about their health that bother them. And each person might have an additional list of things that bother them which is more descriptive of them as the person they are.

Healing With Homeopathy

With homeopathy, the homeopath will hear about these symptoms on the list, and also will hear, see, observe, and witness more of what is bothering the individual person. I am always saying that homeopathy is treating the person, who has ________, in this case fibromyalgia. Homeopathy is not treating the disease, nor the name of the health concern. The homeopathic remedy given is similar to what the individual person is experiencing. It is not a homeopathic remedy for fibromyalgia.

woman by the waterThese women most likely experience some or all of the symptoms listed above. Plus, they experience others things that bother them. If I was going to ask each of them, what bothers them the most, each would say something different from each other. Each woman is different, despite having the same diagnosis of fibromyalgia, A very simple example of this, is that one woman said that she felt worse, and her symptoms were worse when there was cold weather. And another woman said she was worse during hot weather. These two women have different experiences. We are all different.

There were five women in the group. I am pretty sure that each of these woman would need a different homeopathic remedy that addresses how and what they experience. Each one being different and unique. Conventional medicine has a one size fits all approach. The same medication is given to everyone for a health concern, not looking at each person as an individual. Homeopathy sees the individual person, treating the person.
