Hearing Your Child

Over these last few months, I have seen quite a few children in my homeopathic practice. They have come in for different reasons, physical issues and emotional or behavioral issues. Often, the physical and emotional issues are connected. It is a totality of the child.

Many of the mothers will say to me, “I feel so bad that my child is in pain, and I don’t know what to do about it.” They say this whether it is a physical or an emotional pain.

My response is, you are doing something. You are hearing them.

These mothers are seeing that something is bothering their child, and seeking help for them by using homeopathy and possibly other healing modalities.

It is wonderful that mothers, fathers and caregivers too, of these children are hearing their child and doing something about it. The child may have not come out and said specifically in words, hey this hurts, or I am upset about, or worried about that, or fearfulbaby-feet-1527456_960_720 about this. They may not say it clearly, yet they are saying it, actually showing it. We just need to hear, listen, observe, watch, witness and love.

These are some of the issues that have brought children in for homeopathic care. Adults can experience these issues too.

  • a cold
  • a persistent cough
  • an infected tooth
  • different kinds of skin eruptions
  • swollen glands
  • stomachaches and digestive issues
  • bad breath
  • distracted
  • anger – screaming, yelling, pushing
  • night terrors
  • pain when urinating and/or having a bowel movement
  • not wanting their mother to leave
  • concerned how they will be in new situations
  • fearful of something in particular
  • wanting things to be a certain way, wanting things not to go out of routine
  • grieving for a lost relative

I say often that it is good to bring children in for homeopathic care because it is good to help them when they are so young, before things start to become more ingrained. Children have a strong vital force or chi. They respond well to homeopathy.

How Homeopathy Has Helped Some Patients

I want to mention again about THE MID-SEMESTER REFRESHER, a free summit being held online from October 24th – 30th.  I invite you to register for the summit and to hear my approximately 22 minute interview on homeopathy. There are over 20 speakers, talking about many topics that parents and parents of teens would been interested in. Here is the link to find out more about the summit, the other speakers and where to register.

Healing Is A Process

With talking about the use of homeopathy with families, I want to write about some of the people I have worked with over the years, and how homeopathy has helped them. I am not giving you the whole case of each person. I meet with people for almost 2 hours for the first appointment. Giving the main gist of the case, so you will get a feel for it.

Each person’s healing process is different. Usually for acute illnesses, you want to see something fairly quickly. For chronic health issues, it is a longer trajectory. The person has experienced what is bothering them for awhile, and it is an unraveling over a period of time. Of course with children, the healing is a shorter period of time because they have lived a shorter period of time.

Some patients did well with the first homeopathic remedy given, maybe one dose, or several doses over a period of time. Some needed more than one homeopathic remedy, a series of homeopathic remedies using one after another. This is quite common. Some patients, who did well, continue to work with me when something else comes up. 

Some Of My Patients

One boy who I saw had continual ear aches and infections. He had been on several rounds of antibiotics. The ear pain and congestion would return soon after each round of antibiotic. He was very sensitive to sounds, in that he could hear sounds very far off in the distance, running to his mother. We didn’t know if the sounds were uncomfortable or scary to him. After taking one or two doses of the homeopathic remedy, the ear aches, infections and congestion did not return. He was better and the circular use of antibiotics stopped.

Over these last two years, I have seen 5 or more children who had warts. Each child was different. One child had warts on their hands; one on their feet. The shape, the hardness or softness was different with each child. Each of them needed a different homeopathic remedy that helped them. This is a good example of how with homeopathy it is not a homeopathic remedy for _____________, (name, diagnosis, label), it is a homeopathic remedy for how the ________________ is experienced for each individual person, what it is like for this person and knowing more about each the person. Homeopathy really looks at the individual.

A young girl who had stomach pains often. She felt very anxious about what was happening in her life and about her relationships. She often would experience the stomach pains when she was feeling anxious. She did well with the homeopathic remedy, taking several doses over a period of time.  family-feet

A woman who had extreme sensitivity to noise and sounds. She had used other healing treatments, including steroids and chiropractic care, which she said made the sensitivity worse. When we first met she was using ear plugs and ear muffs, wearing them all the time. And the audio was turned off during our Skype appointment. She couldn’t hear me; what I said was being transcribed. It was the third homeopathic remedy that we used that helped. The first two didn’t do very much, yet brought us to the third, because we met and I would find out more about her, including her emotional state. Three weeks after taking the third homeopathic remedy, she said, I noticed that when I washed my hands, my ears didn’t hurt. She gradually did better and better. We used this remedy over a period time, giving a dose of it when needed. Gradually, her sensitivity became less and less. Now, she ha slight sensitivity when using a cell phone too long.

A two year old girl had extreme fears. She came from a large family and was comfortable with them. With people outside of her family, she felt fearful. She would scream if someone approached her, not make eye contact with them, run to her mother crying and screaming. She would say “I am scared” at these times. She needed to be near her mother all the time. At night, she needed to be near someone while she was going to sleep. If she woke up and found herself alone, she would scream. She didn’t like the dark. There probably was a light on in her room. She was also very frightened of the stove in the kitchen, and wouldn’t go into the kitchen alone. After taking a dose of the homeopathic remedy given, her mother said her daughter was like a new person. She was now saying hi to strangers at the store and making eye contact with them. She wasn’t afraid of the stove in the kitchen anymore. She needed several dose of this remedy over time. Her fears became less and less when around people. I continue to see this little girl and her family as patients, for other health issues, and other homeopathic remedies are used to address them. She is now 5 years old.

A 19 year old girl felt nauseous almost all the time, which made it hard for her to eat. She exercised a lot and was very involved with collegiate type team sports. She was training and was part of races. At these times, she felt very nauseous and would often vomit. The first remedy she took didn’t’ do very much. The second remedy helped, in which she experienced less and less nausea and was no longer vomiting. 

A dad of a family I work with was sick. He usually is very warm, hot even, person, wearing a jacket when others do. When he came to me, he was tired, run down, and very, very cold, which was not like him. He did well with the homeopathic remedy. What he was experiencing was more of an acute issue than a chronic, ongoing one. 

Homeopathy To Heal

You can see that people come to homeopathy for many different and varied health issues. I actually see many people who have tried other healing treatments and are not doing and feeling better. If you don’t see your health issue here, or in prior posts where I have listed issues people have seen me for, I invite you to be in touch with me and let’s talk. I offer a complimentary 15 + Get Acquainted Call. You can contact me either here on the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com

I encourage you to look at the summit, to see the different speakers. My interview is about 22 minutes long talking about homeopathy and how it is helpful for families. Here is the link again to the summit.

See The Individual, Not The Label of ADD/ADHD, Nor Any Label

I have updated this post that I wrote about 6 years ago. I want to share it with you again.

We are all individuals. ADD/ADHD is a name, a label, to a long list of symptoms, behaviors and responses. When a child, and/or an adult, is not fitting in to the environment of school, of work, of life even, then very often medication is recommended by the person’s physician, and/or by the school.

Some Children I Have Seen In My Practice

Over the years, I have seen many children who have been given the label of ADD/ADHD. sad smiley faceThere may have been a commonality in that they were not doing their work at school, having difficulty focusing and attending, and were easily distracted. Some of these children were proscribed medication – some took it and some did not. I believe that all of the parents of these children were open and wanting other ways of helping their child than using medications.

As I met with the child and their parents, I heard and observed more than that the child was distracted. I believe that each child was suffering in their own way. Below is a short description of some of the children I have seen in my practice.

  • One girl was constantly moving around my office, crawling on the floor, hiding behind the chairs, and going under the desk. As she was moving around and changing her position in the room, she was talking to me.
  • One boy sat still in his chair. At times, while he sat in the chair, he would move his leg. He said if someone did something to him, he automatically (and he used this word automatically) started figuring out how to take revenge on this person. Sweet revenge, he said, and smiled somewhat. He would plan what he would do to this person. He experienced very frightening dreams of dark images, which he said came right up to his face. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, he said that the automatic feeling of needing to take revenge on someone was gone; he didn’t feel it anymore.
  • One boy had the urge to just run away from where he was. He felt very poorly about himself. At school, it was difficult to focus on what needed to be done in terms of his schoolwork. He was very concerned on how he said things, because it might be hurtful to someone.
  • When I first met this boy at the  door, he wanted to hide behind his mom. He also didn’t want to be videotaped. He felt embarrassed. During the school day, he was not focusing on his schoolwork. Once home, his mother needed to help him with his homework, going over the material he had learned during the day. After the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, both his mother and his teacher noticed that he was more focused on his work. His mother said that he seemed calmer.
  • Another boy had angry outbursts and tantrums at home, at school, and in public areas.
  • A boy who had a lot of fears at night.

There is more to each of these children than what I have written here. You can see how different each of these children are. Each child was given a homeopathic remedy that fit them, not the label of ADD/ADHD.

Healing With Homeopathy

children playing by beachWith the healing with homeopathy, the child becomes more of who they are. The child is not changed. They become who they are fully, being curious and creative children. With the healing  process, the child no longer experiences the inner interferences that has made it difficult for them to interact in their environment, the world around them, and with their family and friends.

Although, I have written mostly about children in this post, all of this applies to teenagers and adults as well, who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD or are taking medication. We are all individuals, and our treatment needs to fit us, not a label. The individuality of the person is what that has been given.

I would be happy to talk to you further about yourself or a loved one who may have been given the label of ADD/ADHD or if there is another health issue they are experiencing.

Health – Being Who You Are

This is a post I wrote over 5 years ago. I have changed a few things in it. I wanted to share it again with you. 

I want to wish you all a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving. I am very thankful for all of you who are interested and want to know more about homeopathy. 

*******

One day, when I was sitting in my consultation room, I heard a sound outside the patio door. I looked outside, and there in the mulberry tree was a little bird. It was a bird I had never seen before. It was maybe 7 inches long. It’s back had a black and white pattern. It’s head was bright red. It was pecking at the tree. It walked from one place to another, pecking. I watched the bird for awhile. I had had the tree cut back recently, which I do every year, so the tree was very bare and open. That is why I could see the bird so clearly.

ladder back woodpeckerI immediately looked on the internet to see what kind of bird it was. It was a Ladder Back Woodpecker, which is native to the southwest. The black and white pattern reflected a ladder, in a way. The next day, the bird or its friend, came back, pecking on my tree.

I was thinking as I was watching this bird, that it was doing what it knows how to do. It was being itself – looking for food, and perhaps it found some food, and then moving on to find more. It was being who it is.

What We Want

That is really what we all want –  we want to be who we truly are – to love, to be loved, to do work that we enjoy, to enjoy our lives, to enjoy our relationships with friends and family. And to be healthy so we can do and be these things. To be who we are.

A health issue may make it difficult for a person to take part in their life. These are some of what may bother people to the extent that it affects their life. They can’t truly be who they are.

  • Feeling tired all the time.
  • Needing to know where the bathrooms are located when she goes out, because she has chronic diarrhea.
  • Needing to watch very strictly what he eats.
  • Not having an appetite and feeling nausea all the time.
  • Continuing to experience pain and discomfort in his hands since an accident.
  • Ongoing flare ups of breathing difficulties.
  • Feeling anxious and fearful for herself and her loved ones.
  • Constantly scratching his arms.
  • Skin eruptions.
  • Being very sensitive to sounds.
  • Experiencing headaches.
  • Feeling fearful.
  • Lingering effects from a trauma or illness – a fall; an emotional upset or loss; surgery; the flu or coronavirus (long haul): a vaccine reaction.

Healing – Being Who You Are – Being You

With homeopathic care, the whole person is healing. The health issue that brought the person in for homeopathic care is better, AND, the person is feeling better in themselves.

One woman came to homeopathy because she was experiencing flutterings of her heart. These became less, and she was feeling more energetic. She was able to do more activities during the day and had more energy to do these activities. She said she was feeling like herself again. I could see this in her face.

It is not that the person is changed when having homeopathic care; it is that they can be more of who they are. They are no longer feeling bogged down and hindered with a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual health issue, which has been limiting how they live their life and how they interact in the world. As they are healing, they become more of themselves, just as the bird was pecking on my tree, being who he was, the person is being who they are.

Homeopathy – Helping a Young Girl

I have written about how homeopathy is so helpful for children. I want to tell you about how homeopathy helped a young girl.

I will call her Robin. She is about 2 1/2 years old.

Robin is from a big family, with many siblings. She doesn’t want to interact socially with people outside of the family. When Robin is outside of the house and her mother is not next to her, and someone approaches her, Robin will start screaming. She won’t make eye contact with anyone.

When Robin was 6 months old, her mother started to take her out. When she was in a stressful situation she would convulse and tremble. This reaction did go away. Now, she screams. At times, specifically screaming “I am scared”, and is crying. She runs to her mother to be picked up, holding onto her mother tightly. She seems anxious too.

At night, Robin seems more relaxed as compared to the daytime. She won’t sleep on her own though. During the day Robin won’t take her nap, unless she is on her mother’s lap. She will start to scream when she wakes up and finds she is alone. She needs someone to be with her while she goes to sleep.

I asked about how Robin is in the dark. Her mother said, I don’t think she will like it. (I am thinking that they usually have a light on.)

Robin wants all of her mother’s attention. It seems as though Robin is unable to separate herself from her mother. If she feels like she is separate from her mother, or someone is going to come between her and her mother, she is upset. And she has tantrums when one wouldn’t expect a tantrum to occur.

I suggested the homeopathic remedy Stramonium. This homeopathic remedy is made from the Thorn-apple plant or Datura.

After taking Stramonium, Robin’s mother said, it is as if Robin was like a new person. Now when they go to the health store, and someone holds the door open for her, Robin will say hi to them and look directly at them, making eye contact. She had never done that before.

The fears have left, her mother says. Robin is not scared of the stove in the kitchen anymore. The stove was something Robin was very afraid of, to the point that she was very leery about going into the kitchen.

A couple of months later, Robin had another dose of Stramonium. Her mother wrote soon after that Robin seems more like “herself”. She is not really scared of strangers anymore. She is more free, and says hi to other people, to the point that Robin’s mother is thinking of teaching Robin to be a little bit wary of strangers. Now, Robin loves to play with other children, where before she held back from doing so. Robin is not as clingy, which makes it a little bit easier for her mother.

A physical symptom that Robin experienced is also better. Robin used to complain several times a week, that her eye hurt. She would scream out in pain. Her mother did have her eye checked. Now, after taking Stramonium, the eye pain and the severity of the pain is much less. Robin doesn’t scream anymore that she is in pain. Now she says, “my eye hurts”. Her mother comforts her at that time for a few minutes, or sometimes Robin may be distracted by playing even before her mother can come over to comfort her.

Stramonium is a homeopathic remedy that can be helpful for both children and adults. Homeopathy is based on the principle of Like Cures Like or the Law of Similars. As a homeopath, I am observing, hearing, and witnessing what bothers the person. Then giving the similar of this in the form of a homeopathic remedy. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

During this time with the Coronavirus, there are health concerns that we, family members or friends are experiencing. The health concerns can be physical symptoms, behaviors, fears, anxieties, the Coronavirus and more. Homeopathy can be very helpful for many of these.

I am seeing people via Whatsapp, Facetime and Skype, both locally to the San Diego area and outside of it. I would be happy to talk with you. I offer a 15 minute complimentary phone call. Let’s talk and see if this is a fit for you. Contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

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.

We Each Have Our Own Sensitivity

Sensitivity.

We all have our own sensitivity. Why does something bother one person, but the very same thing doesn’t bother another person?  I often give the example of a skin eruption on someone’s hand. For one person, it bothers them so much to the point that they will seek out any and all kinds of treatment to help. Another person, hardly notices it, or if they do, it doesn’t bother them. They live with it. One person is bothered by it, the other is not. One is sensitive about it, the other is not.

Different Sensitivities

Some sensitivities that people may experience are:                                                                                                                          dandalion

  • to noise, to crowds, to fabrics, to foods, to temperatures, to smells, to certain types of people, to violence, to blood, to over stimulation, to under stimulation, to pain, to pressure, to situations, to traveling, to dirt, to germs, and more.

Parts of the body or the functioning of parts of the body that may be more sensitive in someone are:

  • the stomach – digestive issues, the head – migraines, frequent colds, sore throats, respiratory issues, menstrual issues, hormonal issues – in both women and men, skin eruptions, anxiousness, depression/melancholy, fears and phobias, muscular aches and pains, sleep issues, nightmares, eating issues, and more.

Hearing The Sensitivity – A Case of A Boy

The sensitivity is what I hear when someone comes to see me for homeopathy. I hear what bothers the person. I hear how they experience their sensitivity. I hear how they live with the sensitivity, either compensating, making it go away, accepting it, or avoiding it. I hear how the sensitivity affects their life.

I want to tell you about a boy whose parents brought him in for homeopathic care. He was 20 months old at the time. The boy was experiencing nasal congestion, fevers, and possible ear infections, in which several courses of antibiotics had been given. The antibiotics had helped for four weeks, then the congestion, the fevers, the discomfort in the ear returned. He went through this cycle for several months.

As I spoke to the parents and observed the boy, I saw that he had a sensitivity to noise and sounds. His mother told me that when a sound was loud, or if he heard a far off sound, such as an airplane, actually hearing it before she did, he would run to her. She thought that the sounds were scary or frightening to him. He was not saying how he experienced the sounds through words, but showing through his behaviors, reactions, and responses to the sounds. There was a sensitivity to sound. I wondered if the sounds felt uncomfortable or painful to him in some way. Whatever it was, the sounds and noises were too much for him. I really didn’t know how the sounds specifically affected him, but they bothered him greatly, in some way.

boy with truck 2 cartoonThis sensitivity to sound was also expressed as he played. He would make the sounds of trucks, imitating the noises that trucks make as they move, back up, carry things, and push materials. To me, this also showed how sensitive he was to sound. He heard things well, and could reproduce the sounds that he heard.

He has done well with the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what he was experiencing. He hasn’t needed to have any more antibiotics. He has had a few fevers and nasal congestion, but has been able to move through them without any lingering problems. I would be curious to know how his sensitivity to sound and noises are. I would think that he may have less of a sensitivity to them.

Healing With Homeopathy

The sensitivity to sounds is not why the boy’s parents brought him in for homeopathic care. But this sensitivity was very characteristic of him as an individual person, and very much part of him. Homeopathy looks at, and focuses on the whole person. We all of our own sensitivity, and sensitive areas in our body. This is where we may experience symptoms, discomfort, or flare ups when we are experience situations that are stressful physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. With homeopathic care, the sensitivity becomes less and quiets down.

What is your sensitivity? I invite you to contact me either here through the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com  and set up a Get Acquainted Call. I do work with people who don’t live near me using Skype.

Women Taking Care Of Themselves, With Homeopathy

This post is about women, about women of all ages taking care of themselves. So often, women, and especially moms, don’t really take care of themselves. As I used to say when my sons were younger, I wasn’t even on the list.

Women are so busy taking care of their family members, friends and coworkers, and not always themselves. I have previously written a blog post about caregivers, and another blog post about moms being my ideal patient , which you may want to read. The post on moms, talks about how they are the hub, the center of the family, making sure everyone is taken care of. Now it is time for moms, for all women, young, old, middle-aged to take care of themselves.

Some Of The Women I Have Seen

In my practice, I have seen women of all ages and for various health concerns. There usually is some specific reason that has brought the woman in to see me – a physical complaint, an emotional issue, an ongoing health concern. In addition to this specific reason, there is her, the woman, and how she responds and feels on all levels (physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually) to what has happened in her life. Homeopathy addresses the whole of her. Through listening, observing, and understanding what is at the core of what is bothering her, a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what she is experiencing, to the totality of her. The homeopathic remedy stimulates her own healing process, strengthening her vital force or immune system, healing the specific reason why she came in, and also healing the totality of her.

Here is a little bit about some of the woman who have come in to see me for homeopathic care. Please know there is more to each of these women than what I have written here.

– a 19-year-old, who has very heavy periods, with severe cramping.                                                                                          grandma-612016_640

–  a woman going through menopause, who has hot flashes at night, making it difficult for her to sleep and then not feeling rested the next day at work. Having very emotional responses to experiences and situations in her life. Crying more.

– a woman in her 60’s who has had migraines for most of her life. Still having them after going through menopause.

– a woman figuring out what to do with her life. Has depressive types of thoughts. Taking care of her family. Asking herself, what can I do?

young girl–  a woman who is very involved in the workings of her family’s business. Experiences severe arthritic type pains in her hands, that she describes as a squeezing sensation. Has these pains more often when she is cleaning, using water. Very concerned on how the house is kept.

–  a woman who experiences discomfort when having sexual relations with her husband. She is not really happy in the relationship.

–  a woman who always has had someone helping her. Now she is a widow, and learning how to take care of herself, along with going through grieving for her husband.

– a young girl who has trouble sleeping, experiencing nightmares that keep her awake. During the day she is very irritable.

Some Of The Health Concerns Women Experience

Below is what may have brought the woman in for homeopathic care. Nothing is in isolation, as my teachers have said. Symptoms are not treated separately. It is the totality of the woman who is addressed, and the totality heals.

  • menstrual issues – cramps, PMS, bloating, headaches, late periods, heavy flow, clots, perimenopause, menopause, hot flashes, insomnia, other symptoms related that may come up or are exasperated during the menstrual cycle
  • digestive issues – bloating, constipation, diarrhea, food allergies and sensitivities, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease
  • sleep issues – insomnia, frequent waking, difficulty falling asleep, nightmares
  • pain – muscular, arthritic, nerve, acute or chronic, from an old injury

An observation: it may be that we women always have a cycle. Whether we are actually menstruating, or not menstruating. Whether we are pregnant, or have gone through menopause. This “cycle” time may be when a symptom, a feeling, a thought, a state of being, a health concern, or what bothers us, is more prevalent or more intense than usual.

Being “A Regular Child” – Homeopathy Helps

happy child I have posted this link from Upworthy on Facebook about a school building in Japan that is designed in a circle that allows kindergarten children to move. (Some of you may have viewed it already.) I think it is a great idea. Children are moving. They are moving and doing things at their own pace, in the modes of learning that they learn best in, and being drawn to what interests them. It is an environment that is fitting to them, and not the other way around, that the child is needing to fit the environment.

To me, the boy in the photo is saying: Look at me. Look at what I can do. This is me! Isn’t it great!?

I liked how this school is set up. It is allowing the child to be who they are. That is what a healing with homeopathy does for a child, and for an adult, allowing them to be who they are, without whatever is hindering them or getting in their way of being who they are. The hindrances could be fears, physical symptoms – such as digestive issues, respiratory issues, skin eruptions, allergies, asthma, chronic ear infections, headaches – behavioral issues, specific sensitivities, terrifying nightmares, difficulty sleeping, angry feelings and outbursts, withdrawn behaviors, difficulty focusing, and more.

When these hindrances are quieted down, the child can be, as a woman said to me recently, “a regular child”. They can move, they can be who they are.

Homeopathy – Healing Children

Homeopathy is wonderful for children’s health care.  Whether the child is experiencing ongoing health issues or acute colds and stomachaches, homeopathy is very helpful. In the healing with homeopathy, the immune system of the child is strengthened, so the health issue is not occurring as much and finally lessens all together.

Some ongoing health concerns that children experience:

  • Chronic ear infections
  • Asthma
  • Eczema or other skin eruptions
  • Allergies
  • Behavioral issues
  • ADD/ADHD – see post on ADD/ADHD
  • Autism spectrum
  • Stomachaches
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Difficulty sleeping and nightmares
  • Fears
  • Coughs
  • Headaches
  • Recurring colds, sore throats
  • Childhood disease – measles, chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough, German measles.

I would like to tell you about a patient of mine who I have seen for several years. When he first came to me, he was eight years old. When Joe (not his real name) was playing baseball, he would experience the need to cough when he stopped running. Joe said, “It is weird to have so much mucus in my throat. Coughing gets more mucus. I stop coughing and the mucus goes away.” His mother had taken Joe to the doctor who had suggested using an inhaler for the cough. His mother did not want to do that. She had used homeopathy before, and wanted to see how homeopathy could help Joe.

Joe talked about feeling scared at night when he heard noises in the house. “There could be burglars. If I knew what it was, it wouldn’t be so scary. You can get taken. I would have to scream and kick around. The person doing that would not like it.” His mother said that during the evening, Joe would frequently get out of bed to ask her about the sounds, as well as asking when his father was coming home, if his father was away on a business trip. His mother would give an explanation, but Joe would be back again asking about the noises. His mother described Joe as needing a lot of reassurance, and being very cautious. She said that he checks first with an adult, and then does whatever he was going to do. He doesn’t answer the phone because it might be someone he doesn’t know.

On car trips, Joe gets extremely carsick. He also is sensitive to the heat. His head and stomach hurt, he feels dizzy, and he throws up. He gets very upset when friends pretend they will hit him and then stop. “It is unfair and mean.” To him, it is a huge thing. He can’t let it go.

After taking the homeopathic remedy that was most similar to what he was experiencing, Joe was not coughing after running, and the sensation of mucus in his throat was gone. In fact, when visiting the doctor after the first dose of the remedy, the doctor could no longer hear anything in his lungs. Joe was falling asleep easier at night, and was not getting up at night to ask questions. He was no longer experiencing carsickness, and his sensitivity to the heat also decreased. And when Joe and his family were vacationing in Hawaii, every morning Joe went up to the the desk clerk and asked for the sports section of the newspaper.

Over the years, Joe has had doses of the homeopathic remedy when it was needed. Sometimes, his sensitivity to heat has come back, or other acute situations have occurred. This is when a dose was given. He has though no longer experienced the coughing and the sensation of mucus in his throat.  Homeopathy heals the whole person. With Joe, the mucus in the throat and the coughing were better, as well as other aspects of him, his emotional state and other physical symptoms.  Homeopathy heals the person.
