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.

Children Who Are Having Difficulties – Homeopathy Heals

The other week, I was attending a meeting in which I was introducing myself and saying a little bit about homeopathy. I was specifically talking about a patient of mine, a young boy. I prefaced what I was saying about him, with the statement that it is not that children are difficult, but that children have difficulties.

Children Who Are Having Difficulties, NOT Difficult Children

A child is having difficulties, and from this, there may be behaviors or responses or reactions or symptoms unhappy-boy2-6525479that the adults around the child find difficult.  So we say the child is difficult.  The child is having difficulties. Something is bothering the child, and it is manifested in symptoms and behaviors that others may find difficult.

Somethings that could be bothering a child:

  • An inner struggle
  • Difficulty in vision, hearing, processing information, paying attention
  • Environmental factors – exposure to toxins, not enough food, reaction to foods, poor environment, abuse
  • Relationships – abuse (I know I have written this twice), family discord, parental problems, family dynamics, siblings, friends
  • A physical ailment, injury

Ways in which a child may manifest what is bothering them:

  • Anger, acting out, tantrums
  • Fears, terrors, anxiousness
  • Sadness, withdrawal, depression
  • Difficulty in friendships and relationships
  • Bed wetting, frequent urination, UTI’s
  • Oppositional behavior
  • Frequent colds, sore throats, stomachaches, headaches, persistent or nervous coughs
  • Rashes
  • Allergies
  • Respiratory symptoms – asthma
  • Difficulty concentrating and focusing
  • Sleeping problems, nightmares, sleep walking
  • Digestive issue – constipation, diarrhea

The symptoms are signs that something is not right, off balance.  The healing needs to address what is bothering the child. Sometimes, it is just changing the environment, and then the “difficulty” is better.

A Boy With A Persistent Cough

Years ago, I saw a young boy for a recurring cough. The cough actually bothered the mother more than it bothered the boy.  With talking and listening to the boy, I understood that what bothered him the most was that his younger sister was the boss of him. He was older, taller, yet he felt that she was the boss of him.  Unfortunately, his mother did not bring the boy back for a follow up appointment, but I found out through a friend of the family that the cough had subsided. My guess was that the boy also was feeling better about himself, and didn’t feel that his sister was the boss.

A Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy addresses the whole person. With this boy, the cough in a way was showing that here was something off within him. He had a sensitivity to someone else being smaller than him, who was bossy to him, even though he was bigger and older. That sounds simple, but there is more to it. His mother saw the difficultly as being the cough. The boy was having difficulties, the cough showed it, but there was more to it. And this sensitivity in relationship to his sister was probably experienced in other places, and with other people, possibly at school.

Is there a child you know who is having difficulties?

I am always happy to talk to people on how homeopathy can be helpful for them, and in this case extremely helpful for a child who is having difficulties.

We All Have Our Own Unique Sensitive Areas – Homeopathy Heals the Individual

In a previous blog post, I gave a link to an article and video talking about the overuse of antibiotics in children. Very simply, the bacteria that is helpful in the digestion of peanuts was being killed by the antibiotics. So when a child ate peanuts, they were unable to digest them. It is called a peanut allergy. We are seeing a rise of this allergy, which can be life threatening. If you want to read the article and view the video, I give the link to both in blog post is OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS MAY BE THE CAUSE OF PEANUT ALLERGIES.

After reading this article and viewing the video, I immediately thought of how children with autism have issues with their digestion. I had recently talked with a mother whose autistic teenage son is doing very well on a gluten and dairy free diet. These foods were difficult for him, causing digestive issues as well as behavioral and processing ones. Many children with autism have these digestion issues, and sensitivities to gluten and dairy products.

Food Allergies and Autism

Why are we seeing more food allergies and autism in our children? I just found it so interesting that the digestive system is affected in both of these situations. Most likely, these children have a more sensitive digestive system. In the 1990’s, when Dr. Andrew Wakefield was still practicing medicine, many parents brought their child to see him for treatment. Dr. Wakefield was/is a gastrointestinal surgeon. These children were having digestive issues, and some of them were on the autistic spectrum. Dr. Wakefield saw a connection between children who had autism with those who had an adverse reaction to the MMR vaccine. I know this is controversial, and this isn’t what this blog post is about.  But there is something about how medication, whether the overuse of antibiotics, or vaccines, is effecting children, and effecting their digestive system.

Sensitive Area of Our Body

In other blog posts I have mentioned that most of us have a more sensitive area of our body and/or body’s functioning capability. For some it is their stomach and digestive system, for others it is headaches, skin eruptions, anxiousness, insomnia, to name just a few. Most likely for the children I am writing about in this blog post, their sensitive area was the digestive system.  When they have stress, or pressure, or any external or internal upheaval, they will experience symptoms in their digestive tract. Medication, or too many doses of a medications, or a vaccine may be one of these triggers. With the end result being severe damage to their digestive system. This is what may have happened to these children.

i am uniqueWe are not a one size fits all.  We are not one medicine fits all. We each have our own sensitivity and our own reactions, and respond to medication uniquely to us.  Whenever someone is receiving medications, the person needs to be monitored well by their physician or their health practitioner. This includes when using homeopathic remedies.

Homeopathy focuses on and treats the individual.  Homeopathy isn’t treating the disease, which is a  name, but how the individual experiences their symptoms, and how it bothers them.  We each are unique.

When going for homeopathic treatment, the homeopath is listening, observing, uncovering the what and the how of what is bothering the person. What is the pain, discomfort like? How does this affect the person? What is the problem with having this? Sensations? Dreams? Fears? Emotional state? With an understanding of the person’s uniqueness, a homeopathic remedy is selected that is similar to what the person is experiencing. It is a remedy for this person, not the disease. The remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, healing at the root, at the core of the problem.

With the children, or adults, who have food allergies and/or on the autistic spectrum, homeopathy can be a big help in their health care. It may not totally reverse what has occurred. It will though help strengthen and balance them, so they are feeling well in themselves, have less flare ups of their allergies and their behavioral and processing responses, and anything else that is bothering them.

I would be happy to talk further about how homeopathy can help. Either leave a comment below or contact me through my website, http://www.homeopathytoheal.com

WHAT IS YOUR GUT SAYING? – Homeopathy Heals Symptoms of the Gut

Listen to your gut. What does your gut say?

Often we make statements like: What does my intuition say? How do I really feel about this? Is this right or wrong for me? Is it a good feeling or a bad feeling? What is the Universe saying to me? What does my gut say?

What does your gut say? When it is not functioning well.

We hear a lot about the gut. We hear about children and adults having food allergies. We hear about people having sensitivities to certain foods such as gluten, dairy and peanuts. We hear about leaky gut syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other digestive issues.  And we hear about all sorts of diets to help with our gut.

For people who have gut and digestive issues, this is often their area of sensitivity. This is where they manifest symptoms when they are feeling stressed, upset, nervous, anxious, depressed, and emotional. Some of the symptoms experienced are vomiting, diarrhea, breathing difficulties with food allergies, skin eruptions, anxiousness, burping, passing gas, acid reflux, bad breath, stomach pains, cramping, loss of appetite, eating disorders and more. These symptoms can be very annoying, disruptive, fatiguing, tiring in that here we go again, restrictive, embarrassing, painful, controlling, and maybe even life threatening. They take over a person’s life.

 gut 2GUT WRENCHING

So what is the gut saying? It is saying there is something that is not right. There is an imbalance, a disturbance, and it is being shown through these gut symptoms.

Homeopathy can be very helpful for these kinds of gut issues.  The homeopath listens, observes, and uncovers what this imbalance and disturbance is for the individual person, along with hearing more about the gut symptoms. With an understanding of all of this information, the homeopath then selects a homeopathic remedy that is similar to the person in their totality.  It is remedy for the person, not for the symptoms. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, and with this healing the disturbance quiets down, and the gut symptoms lessen, till they are no longer a problem.

Homeopathy was very helpful for a woman who had bouts of diarrhea almost daily. She never quite knew when they would occur. She would plan her outings based on having access to a bathroom, because when she needed a bathroom, she needed it fast and NOW. She knew where all the bathrooms were located wherever she went. After taking the homeopathic remedy that was similar to her, (One of the the main principles of homeopathy is the Law of Similars or Like Cures Like) the bouts of diarrhea become less and less. She could go out, and not have to prepare and know where the bathrooms were located. She also felt much better in herself, able to handle things that happened in her life in a much more constructive way. The remedy was helping in healing her whole being.

What is your gut saying?

If you or someone you love is having on going gut and digestive issues, and have used other medical therapies and/or medications, perhaps it is time to see how homeopathy can be healing for you.  What I have written here, applies to both children and adults.

************

I see that my blog posts are read all over the world. Please, know that I work with people through Skype, if they are not local to the area where I live which is San Diego, California. With any patient, I need to be able to see them and see their expressions, their hands gestures, and their expression of energy.

Overuse of Antibiotics May Be A Cause of Peanut Allergies

Over the years, we have read how there has been an overuse of antibiotics, especially for children who are experiencing earaches. And we have seen an increase in children developing an allergy to peanuts. This allergy can be life threatening. I recently came across a video and an article on Katie Couric World 3D that ties together the overuse of antibiotics and allergies to peanuts.  Very simply, the overuse of antibiotics has killed certain bacteria in the gut that is useful in the digestion of peanuts. Below is the article and video (4 minutes long) for you to read and view. I want to let you know that the article and video are disturbing.

button I am allergic to peanuts

There definitely is a place for antibiotics in our health care.  But often, we hear of children being proscribed course after course of antibiotics for an ear infection, and the child is not any better.  It may have started out as an acute ear infection or on going earaches, but with the use of the antibiotics, it has become a more chronic condition. Homeopathy can be very helpful for acute and chronic earaches and ear infections.

If your child does have an allergy to peanuts, it is important to continue the care with their physician and avoid any foods with peanuts in them. In addition, you may want to look at homeopathy. Homeopathy may lessen the allergic reaction as the child’s immune system is strengthened and brought back to a more balanced state.

Researcher Claims Food Allergies Could Be Caused By Antibiotics

By Gabe Noble

Giovanni Cipriano was an ordinary 14-year-old high school freshman who had a passion for baseball and had just made the honor roll. One quiet night, as he snacked on trail mix and watched a movie with his mother, his throat began to incessantly itch. Unbeknown to Giovanni and his mother, there were peanuts in the mix, which he had been allergic to since he was 18 months old. His mother gave him a double dose of Benadryl and frantically rushed to the hospital.

“I took his hand and I said, ‘Don’t worry, we’re here.’ And when I grabbed his hand, he was cold and his body was blue,” Giovanni’s mother, Georgina told Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga from her home in Long Island, NY. The anaphylactic reaction led to a coma, and he died several weeks later.

Giovanni was one of the 6 million children in the United States who suffer from food allergies, an alarming number that has nearly tripled in the past two decades. Dr. Martin Blaser, a microbiologist and professor at New York University, is working tirelessly on groundbreaking research into this dramatic spike in food allergies. His hypothesis is that exposure to antibiotics early in life is diminishing positive gut bacteria and thus weakening children’s immune systems, making them more susceptible to allergies. Blaser warns parents: “Antibiotics are not free, they do have a cost. And it is not just monetary but in the development of the immunity in children.”

Blaser’s theory has been tested on young mice and while his research is still a work in progress, the results so far are positive and he hopes could lead to a cure for food allergies.

Note: An earlier version of this story indicated that the peanut allergy in mice had been eliminated by Dr. Blaser’s experiment. The doctor clarified by saying while that is the goal of his work “We have no experiment that shows that we can turn around the immunological findings that we have observed.”

The Direction of Cure: How Homeopathy Assesses Healing, in Regards to Asthma and Eczema

In the Tuesday, May 14, 2013 Health section of the U-T San Diego, there was an article on asthma. The title of the article is REPEL THE ASTHMA ATTACK. It is written by Beth Wood.  There is a quote by Dr. John Kelso, an Allergist at Scripps Health’s Division of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. This quote caught my eye.

Dr. Kelso says, “Eczema, food allergy, hay fever and asthma are lumped together because if a patient has one, it’s a threefold chance that they have the other. They are genetically linked.”  Here is the the link to the article if you would like to read it in full:  http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/may/13/repel-the-asthma-attack/

I was excited by this quote. This quote was expressing how homeopathy often sees these four health concerns. The rest of the article talks about asthma using western methods for treatment, so it is not an article on homeopathy.

In homeopathy, we often see the connection between eczema and asthma. If a person is using a cortisone type cream for their eczema, they may develop asthmatic symptoms as the eczema seems to be going away. The disturbance that manifests in the person having eczema is actually going deeper into the body as a result of the cortisone cream treatments. The skin may be looking better and the person may feel that they are better in regards to the eczema, but now the person may be experiencing breathing difficulties, such as in asthma, and/or sensitivities to different foods, such as in food allergies. This is not a healing. The cortisone creams has been very suppressive. The disturbance has gone deeper into the body and affecting more life threatening organs.

What is happening in this situation, is the opposite to the Direction of Cure or Hering’s Law. Dr. Constantine Hering was a well known homeopath living in the 1800’s. Through his observations of patients’ healing, he came to certain conclusions on how the healing process progresses. These conclusions are called The Direction of Cure or Hering’s Law. Knowing Hering’s Law, helps the homeopath to assess how the patient is healing.

The Direction of Cure or Hering’s Law states that healing takes place:

  • From center to the circumference –  moving from the center to the outer. This means the symptoms are moving away from the brain, which is the center and the seat of consciousness, reasoning abilities, and memory. The brain is responsible for all the other functions of the human being.
  • From above downward  –  moving from the head down the body. This pertains mostly to skin conditions. Eruptions move from the head towards the extremities. Think when you have a rash, how it may start on the chest area and then it moves down the body, often leaving the body through the hands and feet.
  • From vital organs to less vital organs. There is a hierarchy of the organs in terms of their importance for life: brain, central nervous system, endocrine system, liver, lungs (there are two), kidneys (two), bones, connective tissue, stomach, intestines, muscles and skin.
  • In the reverse order of appearance (the last symptoms to come/to be experienced are the first to go).

Each of us is a whole, unique person. Our symptoms are expressions of an imbalance in the wholeness of us, just manifesting in a particular area in which we have great sensitivity. In a healing, we want the wholeness of the person to be better. And yes, homeopathy is extremely helpful for people who experience asthma, eczema, hay fever and food allergies.  Homeopathy creates a healing, rather than just managing, alleviating or palliating the symptoms.
