The Use Of Homeopathic Remedies When Exposed To A Fire

I have written about the use of homeopathy when there are natural disasters (In that post, I talk about how to use the homeopathic remedies.) Presently, California is having horrible and destructive fires. The fire season in California has become almost any time of the year. It used to be the months of September and October. People are being affected by the fires whether they live right in the fire area, close by, or even several hundred miles away.  With whatever distance you are from the fire, you may be feeling the affects of the fire, breathing in the smokey air and particles.

There are some homeopathic remedies that can help when being exposed to a fire. You may be experiencing emotional and physical symptoms. Also the fire may trigger a condition that you already experience, such as asthma, headaches or allergies.

If you are not feeling well at the time of the fire and/or are having lingering responses 150 - boiron arnicaand reactions after the fire, it would be good to see your physician, and your homeopath. A person may or may not need help at that time, but later on they may. This is call “never been well since” _________________.

I hear that many people are using air masks or air filters.

HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES

I have organized the remedies by issues. There is always an overlap. If you are experiencing an emotional symptom or a physical one, read all the remedies. The homeopathic remedies listed here are just a small selection of homeopathic remedies. I am thinking in terms of first aid use, and what to be used at the time of the fire. If a condition continues, or you are not feeling better by these homeopathic remedies, contact a homeopath. (I put in bold the type of cough.)

Emotional State

ACONITE – feeling very fearful, anxious and panicky after the shock and occurrence of the disaster, or during the disaster, even from loud noises. Cannot calm down. Feels terrified and restless. May have particular fear of death, and even predicting that they will die. Sleep is restless, tossing and turning, waking up feeling very fearful. Symptoms come on suddenly. May have a dry cough.

IGNATIA – grief from loss: loss of home, possessions, loved ones. Crying or whimpering in sleep. Frequent sighing and yawning, while awake.

ARSENICUM ALBUM – very restless and anxious. Burning in eyes, throat and inside nose. maybe streaming. May have digestive issues of vomiting and diarrhea.

Body Injuries

ARNICA MONTANA – for body injury, shock from an injury, or just shock from the trauma of the disaster. Person feels sore, bruised, and will say “I am fine”, even though they are not. They don’t like to be touched.

RHUS TOX – sprain and strain after heavy physical work, when the person has not limbered up. Pains are worse when beginning to move, feels better once moving, like a “rusty gate”. Acts on torn ligaments and tendons. Use after ARNICA. Joint is hot, swollen and painful.

RUTA GRAV – use if Rhus tox fails. Torn and wrenched tendons or ligaments. Bruised periosteum (bone covering). Especially good for stiff, sore wrists, ankles, or knees. Dislocation of joints, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder. Use after ARNICA.

Burns

CANTHARIS – for burns from cooking, sunburn, and fires. Read the post I wrote about Cantharis and burns.

Eyes

ALLIUM CEPA – eyes and nose stream. Nasal discharge is acrid, making the upper lip and nose sore. Discharge from eyes is bland.  Think of when peeling and cutting an onion. Hoarseness, beginning of laryngitis.

EUPHRASIA – when the mucous members are affected: the eyes, nose, and chest. With a watery, acrid discharge. Burning hot tears. The nasal discharge is bland.  A thick, acrid discharge from the eyes. (Allium Cepa doesn’t have an acrid discharge/teary from the eyes.)  Called EYE BRIGHT. There can be redness around the eyes, almost looking like a racoon.

Cough and Respiratory

SPONGIA – dry, croupy, and wheezing cough. Sounds like a “saw being driven through asomeone coughing pine board”. Tickling and dryness in the throat. Clears throat frequently.

HEPAR SULPHURIS – very irritable, bad tempered, and feels chilly. Croupy, wet cough. Sounds like a seal barking. A thick, yellow mucus expectoration. Worse from the slightest draft, cold, dry air, uncovering. Better from warmth.

ANTIMONIUM TARTARICUM – great fatigue. Sweating on head. A wet cough. Mucus is thick, white and difficult to cough up. Sounds like a rattling. Hoarseness.

PHOSPHORUS – Tightness in chest. Suffocative and oppressive breathing. Cough hard and dry. Very impressionable and sympathetic. Anxious about loved ones. Loves company. Stomachaches and gushing diarrhea.

CARBO VEGETABILIS – irritable. Exhaustion and weakness. Air hunger – breathing is laborious, quick and short. Wants to take a deep breath.  A hollow and choking cough.

A Personal Post – I Love Homeopathy

This is a personal post.

I love homeopathy.

I get discouraged at times. Homeopathy is challenging. My job is to understand the suffering of the patient, and then match it with the similar, in the form of a homeopathic remedy. It is LIKE CURES LIKE (Law of Similars). This is so, whether in a first aid situation (an insect bite), an acute condition (an ear infection), or a chronic condition (reactions to vaccines or an injury, chronic pain and fatigue, anxiety and other ongoing, chronic health issues.)

In my practice, I continually see how homeopathy helps people in their health, and that they are doing and feeling better. When I see this happen, it brings me back to the thought that there is such a need for homeopathy. I say to myself at this time, I love homeopathy! I love that I practice homeopathy. I love that homeopathy is available to people. I love that I can contribute to people’s health. And I love learning more about homeopathy.

Thank You

A big thank you to all of you who read this post, and posts that I have written in the past. It shows me that you are wanting, and are open to having choices for your health care, and that you are open to homeopathy.

If you want to know more about homeopathy, Amy Lansky wrote a wonderful book titled THE IMPOSSIBLE CURE.

Homeopathy Is A Wonderful Healing Modality – And You

I want to talk to you about homeopathy, and you.

Homeopathy is a wonderful healing modality. It is helpful for so many health concerns people experience today, from first aid, like burns, sprains, falls and dental procedures; to acute concerns like colds/flus, coughs, sore throats and impacted teeth; to chronic/ongoing conditions like gull in flightdigestive issues, headaches, swollen glands and a cancer diagnosis. For a child who is having difficulty concentrating or is on the autism spectrum, to an older person who has had a heart attack. I can list and list health concerns of which homeopathy would be helpful, and for all ages.

And homeopathy is also helpful for other living beings in addition to human beings, such as your dog, cat or horse.

You Know…

I believe that you know:

What you want.

To be pain free, to have more energy, to have better digestion, to  focus better, to have easier periods, for your child to have a conversation with you.

What is bothering you.

Pain, anxiety, fatigue, emotional feelings, a skin eruption.

What is preventing you from being better.

A mindset, a trauma or physical ailment that you really have not healed from yet, an ongoing stress situation, an exposure to environmental toxins. 

And, what you are looking for in terms of helping yourself in your health.

To feel better using more natural forms of healing that really promote a healing, and not a palliation, by accessing the body’s wonderful healing ability.

Homeopathy

You may be wanting to know specifically what homeopathy can do to help you in your health, to help you in what you do know about yourself.  I may have addressed that in previous posts, if I haven’t, I invite you to contact me and let’s see about you.

I can be contacted through this blog post or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

I wrote this post THERE IS A NEED FOR HOMEOPATHY awhile ago. You may want to give it a read.

Finding Out About The Person – The Homeopathic Consultation (Part 1)

I receive phone calls, emails, and messages from people asking me if homeopathy could help their particular health concern. Very often, I am asked, I have this _______ or I experience this symptom, what would you suggest for me?

I don’t know. And I say that. I say I don’t know. Then I say, I need to find out how this is for you. I need to know more. I suggest you come in for an appointment and lets see what is going on with you.

What Happens In A Homeopathic Consultation

When I meet someone for a homeopathic consultation, this is what is happening. I am:

  • Listening. Observing. Witnessing. So I can understand what the person is experiencing. Finding out what is bothering them, and how they experience it. What this is like for them.
  • Creating a place and space for someone to talk and to show who they are and what bothers them.
  • Listening to the spoken and the unspoken words. I often say, I am listening through.sculpture-2275202_1280
  • Watching, seeing, hearing, the hand gestures, body movements, facial expressions, sounds the person makes, and the words and language the person uses to express themselves.
  • Specifically, finding out about a symptom – what makes it better, worse, location, how experienced, when it first started, how it feels, other symptoms with it, how is it to have the symptom.
  • Putting all the pieces/parts together, making a whole picture of the person. Like a jigsaw puzzle, being put together. Or a painting being painted in front of me. But I don’t have the complete picture in front of me to know what the final outcome will be.
  • Learning the person’s world and their language. How they view their world. How they experience their world.
  • Giving a homeopathic remedy that is similar to this whole picture of the person.

Always Finding Out About The Person

What I describe here, is what I do whether the person has:

  • a chronic condition – ongoing, experiencing flare ups of symptoms periodically, never quite going away, such as eczema, menstrual difficulty, digestive issues, asthma, anxiety, auto-immune conditions and more.
  • an acute condition – the flu, a cold, an infection, a cough, a childhood disease. An acute could also be a flare up of the chronic condition.
  • a first aid situation – a fall, a trauma, dental work, surgery, a sprain/strain, a burn.

The length of time I spend with a person during a consultation may vary depending on whether it is a chronic, an acute, or a first aid situation. But always, always, I am finding out about the person – the what, and the how of what bothers them.

Look for Part 2 to this topic – the homeopathic consultation – in my next post.

*******

If I can be of help in regard to a chronic, an acute or a first situation, I invite you to contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you, and to find out what is bothering you.

A Personal Healing With Homeopathy

I am a homeopath. I am a patient too. I see a homeopath. I don’t self treat for homeopathic care. I may self treat for first aid, and there were several times I did for chronic conditions, but I don’t now. I cannot be objective, nor can I really hear and observe myself. I can’t wear two hats at the same time – the patient and the homeopath.

My Story

This last week, my homeopath gave me a new homeopathic remedy. This happens. The homeopath sees the case deeper, some things change, or there is a better understanding of the person’s complaints and suffering. A different homeopathic remedy is needed than to what was given before. This new homeopathic remedy was in the same family, the same kingdom, of the one I had just be taking. The former homeopathic remedy had helped, but did not heal as deeply as is possible with homeopathy.

With taking this new homeopathic remedy, an old condition or symptom that I had before, came back. I had suppressed this condition, this situation by using antibiotics when it had first occurred. With the process of healing from a homeopathic remedy, the vital force, the chi, the immune system, becomes stronger, and the symptoms or conditions that were suppressed by the use of medications, such as antibiotics and steroids (cream and oral form) may come back. These symptoms/conditions come back for a short time, and then they are gone. It is healing. In a previous blog, I had written about THE DIRECTION OF CURE. That is what this is. It is a good sign that the remedy is helping and healing, stimulating the person’s own healing process.

That is what was happening with me. The antibiotics that I had taken had been suppressive, and now there was a return of older symptoms/conditions, seashell-754014_640as I was healing. I knew that was what was happening to me, and it was a good thing. I contacted my homeopath and told him, and he agreed with me. In fact what he said was “this is a good thing”. I slept. I took care of the area that was affected. I took care of me. I wasn’t very hungry, but what I did eat was of plant type food, so to speak. Vegetarian. Nourishing food. Life giving food.

Yes, there is a place and a need for antibiotics. They can be extremely helpful, and life saving. And, they can be overused. When I had this situation originally, I could have treated it homeopathically. I didn’t. At first, I didn’t know what was going on with the discomfort and the pain that I was experiencing, and I waited. Then I went to the doctor. The doctor prescribed antibiotics. This happens.

Healing

With the healing of old, suppressed symptoms and conditions, the body, the chi, the vital force, the person, becomes stronger and healthier. This healing affects the whole person, on all levels – the physical, the emotional, the mental, and the spiritual. It is all good. Homeopathy creates a deep healing. It is a healing at the root from where the symptoms and conditions come.

Much of what western medicine does in its treatment can be suppressive. Yes, the person feels better because the symptoms are not as strong, the itch may be gone, the pain may be gone, but only for a short time until the medication is taken again. We may very often think that a healing has occurred if we no longer have the symptoms, or have less of them, but we need to take a medication often and regularly so there are no symptoms. This isn’t a healing. It is a palliating, and can also be suppressing too.

Healing With Homeopathy

For me, this experience shows how well homeopathy heals, and how well it addresses each of us, as the individual person we are. My health concern was heard, observed, and understood. The homeopathic remedy given to me, being similar to what I was experiencing (Like Cures Like) stimulated my own body to heal. To heal, not to palliate, not to ease the symptoms, and not to suppress. To heal.

I invite you to heal. Very simple. Contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I have a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Letting Others Know About Homeopathy

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, 150 - boiron arnica 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.

homeopathy2I 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.

What can I let you know about homeopathy?

How can I be of help to you?
