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.

Each Person’s Healing Process Is Individual To Them

From the beginning of working with a person, I tell them that there most likely will be a series of homeopathic remedies needed, using one at a time. As we work together, I am learning more about them, witnessing, seeing, hearing them. We are doing this together. I always say, it is the person who is healing themselves.

It may be that they need just one or two doses of the first homeopathic remedy. Or they may need several doses of the remedy over a period of time. Or a higher potency or strength of the homeopathic remedy. Or that that the first homeopathic remedy helped, to a point, and brought up other symptoms and now another homeopathic remedy is needed. This may happen several times, the need for a different remedy.

ladder in the woods -4681114_960_720

The image of a ladder has been used by other homeopaths to illustrate a series of homeopathic remedies. One rung is one remedy, the next rung possibly another remedy. The next rung a stronger potency. Next rung, maybe time has passed and the person comes back. And so on. 

It is a process, and individual to the person.

The intention is always for a long lasting healing, not a band aid or quick fix that only lasts for a short time. Although sometimes we do need a quick fix for that moment, and then a homeopathic remedy promoting a long lasting healing afterwards.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one regarding a health issue, I encourage you to contact me through this blog or though my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is something you want to pursue regarding your health. .

Homeopathy Helps Children

I see many children in my homeopathic practice – babies through teenagers.

Children respond well to homeopathy. Adults do too.

To start using homeopathy when someone is young, when they are a child, is wonderful. It is side stepping possibly many years of medications and treatments that can be very invasive. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

Homeopathy simulates the person’s innate three girlshealing ability. Children have a wonderful immune system. They have a strong vital force/vitality, and respond well to homeopathy.

These are some of the health issues that children have come to homeopathy for: 

  • anxiety – depression
  • skin eruptions – warts (you have read a recent post on this), eczema, acne
  • coronavirus
  • delayed talking
  • ADHD
  • digestive issues  – stomach aches
  • fears – ranging from a scary monster in their room to fear of losing a loved one
  • nightmares
  • difficulty sleeping
  • injuries – falls, traumas, bites, emotional or physical abuse, reactions from toxic substances in our environment, vaccines
  • ear infections, colds, fevers, coughs, sore throats
  • teething
  • thrush
  • emotional and behavioral issues
  • certain actions and behaviors – such as running away, constantly moving, fidgeting, biting, hitting
  • difficulty focusing
  • obsessiveness
  • bed wetting
  • allergies
  • respiratory issues, asthma
  • menstrual issues

Seeing A Homeopath

My job as a homeopath is to find out about the child, the totality of them. I do this through observation, listening to both the parents and the child, finding out about the child’s dreams, finding out what bothers them, asking about their likes and child-1072227_960_720dislikes, what has changed and more. With babies, who may not be talking yet,  observation plays a lot into finding out about the child. 

With all of this, I suggest a homeopathic remedy that is similar to the totality of what the child is experiencing in their symptoms. The homeopathic remedy stimulates the child’s healing process. They start to feel better. A healing starts.

Sometimes what bothers the child is not what the parents always think is bothering the child. Several years ago, I saw a boy who had a cough. The cough bothered his mother greatly. What bothered the boy was that his younger sister bossed him around all the time. “She was the boss of me”, he said. This, plus the cough and more, led me to the homeopathic remedy that helped him.

From this experience, I learned that what may bother the parent isn’t necessarily what bothers the child. Together, the information from the parent and the child, help to make the whole picture, the totality of the child.

If I can be of help to your child, or one you know and love, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary 15+minute Get Acquainted Call to see if this is something you would like to pursue.

Changing – Being At The Beach

This weekend I went to the beach. I walked on the beach. I waded a little bit in the water. The sun was strong, but there was a cool breeze. I had the hood of my sweatshirt up. There were ospreys flying in the sky, many of them, in a line of 8 or more. And several lines of them, flying, meeting up with each other. They were flying up and down the coast. When I last saw them, they were heading up north and then gone, I couldn’t see them anymore. I know that they would be coming south again.

I have been going to the beach more often than usual since last August. In August through October, I went in the ocean. I wanted to be in the water. Since November, I have been walking the beach. The beach is Ocean Beach, in San Diego. I Beach, Waves, Ocean, Pacific, Water, Oregon, Coast, Sealook forward to when it is warmer and I will go into the ocean again.  

Seeing the ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and the beach at different times of the year has been fascinating. It changes. Last month, in February there were huge hills of sand on the beach, to protect from storms and erosion. The sand hills were man made. And there were at least 4 feet high piles of seaweed. The seaweed and hills of sand were not there this weekend. How the beach changes, yet it is still the beach, the ocean, the tides, the birds, the waves, the shells. 

Changes. Nothing really stays the same. Things change.

We change.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

I often say to patients when they have an acute issue, like a flu or a cold, that if the symptoms are not changing or moving, you are stuck, and let’s do something homeopathically to help move things. In a way you want change, you want things to move.  A chronic ongoing health issue is being stuck, stuck in those symptoms.

Health is movement, change and being able to adapt.

For Healing – It Is Individual, Not A One Size Fits All

Not A One Size Fits All

We are all different. We experience our health concerns uniquely to ourselves. We may be given a diagnosis, a name, a label that includes the yellow umbrellasymptoms we are experiencing. But we are different.

The treatments we use need to fit who we are as an individual, not just to the diagnosis, the label, or the general, usual, common symptoms of the diagnosis. We need treatments that fit what we are experiencing.

We are not all the same. It is not a one size fits all.

The Season 2020 – 2021

We are hearing a lot about the flu, and the coronavirus as we go into Fall and then Winter. I always like to be supportive and positive in what I write here, and when I see patients. I feel that there is a lot of fear being put out into the public. There are ways to take care of ourselves and our families if we do become ill with the flu or with the coronavirus. Homeopathy being one of those ways, and a very good healing modality.

And the one size doesn’t fit all, pertains to the flu too.

Homeopathy To Heal

I Enjoy Working With Families – Helping Them With Homeopathy

In my homeopathic practice, I often work with families, seeing several people in the family: the children and one or both of the parents, or a grandparent. I really enjoy working with families, and getting to know them.  Recently, a friend said to me that working with families may be my niche. I do see individuals too,

Healing – The Family

Usually it is one of the children who starts, and as they are doing better, a sibling, a parent, or another family member starts to come in for homeopathic care. By working family 3with the different members of the family, I see the interactions, the similarities, the differences, and history of the family. Just as each of us are a whole, and the symptoms we experience make up our whole, the family is the whole, and each member of the family is part of this whole.

When a family member, who was not doing well and in some ways was the center of attention for the whole family, starts to do better in their health, other family members can now pay attention to themselves. It is as if the other family members were holding back, focusing so much on the one family member that needed so much, and now the other family members could focus on themselves, their needs, and their health.

Health Concerns Family Members Experience

These are some of the health concerns that members of a family have come to homeopathy for:

  • pains in the abdomen before menses
  • chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia
  • difficulty with vision
  • tantrums, acting out
  • fears
  • sleep difficulties
  • earaches, congestion, fevers, coughs
  • broken bones, fractures
  • skin eruptions and skin feeling very sensitive
  • breathing difficulties – asthma
  • epilepsy
  • depression and anxiety
  • digestive issues
  • reaction to a vaccine
  • menstrual issues – menopause
  • sore throats
  • teething
  • feeling very chilled

Usually, it is a chronic condition that brings the first family member into homeopathy. Then another family member comes in for a chronic, an acute or first aid concern. becomes part of their health care resources, along with western medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, therapy and other modalities.

Families

A family is any group of people that live together, or not, that love, family rainbowrespect, honor, nurture, and accept each other. A family doesn’t have to be a mom and a dad and children. It can be two moms, two dads, one mom and children, one mom and dogs or cats, a grandparent and aunt and children, and also people who are not related by blood. A family is a group of people who have a closeness and love for each other.

Healing: Quieting Down, Seeing More Possibilities, Feeling Better

Healing.

Feeling better. Feeling well. Feeling hopeful. Feeling positive. Feeling symptoms less or not at all. Feeling no pain. Feeling a sense of freedom. Feeling that you have choices. Feeling unstuck. Feeling you can move. Feeling that there are possibilities.

What I Often Say To Patients

People come to see me for all sorts of concerns that are bothering them. It can be a physical concern, a physical condition, an emotional reaction and response, difficulty focusing, just not feeling well and more. As a homeopath, I am always looking at the whole person. All the parts of the person make up the whole. As someone heals, the specific concern that brought them to homeopathy is better, along with a healing of the whole person.

Often, at a point towards the end of the consultation appointment, I talk a little bit about what happens as someone is healing. These are some of the analogies I have said.

The first one: it is as if an energy has attached itself to you. It is not your energy, but an outside one. And it is so loud. And so loud all the time. That no matter what you do, there quieting-boardwalkis this loudness, and it takes over everything. With a healing, this loudness starts to quiet down; quieting down till there may not be any loudness at all. At first, you may not notice that there is a change, but as the healing continues, the change, the lack of loudness becomes more noticeable. And it becomes quieter.

As I am saying this to the patient, I am using my arms, to show the quieting down. I start with my arms open armswide apart, and then move them closer together, slowly. This is what happens as you heal, I say, at first, you don’t notice that much difference between here and here (I show with my arms as I am moving them a little bit closer together), but as my arms get closer together, you notice more of change, a quieting down. You are not experiencing what bothers you as much, and you start to see, wow there has been a change, I am feeling better.

Another analogy: it is as if everything is the color orange. No matter what happens, no matter how you feel, no matter where you look, everything is orange. You don’t see any other colors. As you heal, you start to see that there are other colors, in addition to orange. colorsThere are blues, reds, pinks, yellows, purples, violets, greens and more. Now, there are more colors; there are more possibilities.

And a third analogy: it is as if we see only from one view point. No matter what happens in our life, no matter how we feel, physically, emotionally, mentally, we only see in one way. As you heal, there are other ways of looking at something. It is as if you have moved and shifted, and now you can see from another vantage point. You are no longer stuck, looking at something from one place, from one angle, from one point of view, you now see many possibilities.

Healing Is A Process

Healing is a process. I tell these three analogies to my patients, so that they see that their healing is a process. At first, they may see small changes, but as the healing continues, they see more changes, and are feeling better. What bothered them which brought them in for homeopathic treatment is better, AND they are feeling better in themselves.

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.

Why Would You Want a Holistic Healing With Homeopathy?

I had written my personal “why” in the post WHY DO I PRACTICE HOMEOPATHY? Now, I would like to write what your “why” may be.

(Simon Sinek writes about your “why” in his book “Start With Why”.)

*******

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting to feel better. Whether it is regarding a physical condition or an emotional      concern.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting a deep healing. Wanting a healing that goes to the root of where the               sunset-with-bluessymptoms that you are experiencing and bothering you are coming from.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting a healing, and not a palliating nor a band aid. Perhaps you are tired of taking medications that are not healing, and that may also be producing side effects that in some ways are worse than what the medication is being given for.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting to be heard. Wanting to be in a safe, protective environment, where whatever you say, show, or share is seen and heard. Being seen as the individual that you are.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Understanding that you are not a label. You are not the diagnosed “disease” name. You are your own unique being.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Wanting all of your being to be better. The physical, the emotional, the mental, the spiritual. And knowing that all parts are connected, that you are not just one part. That you are a whole being.

Why would you want a holistic healing using homeopathy?

Knowing that you are a being that has a wonderful ability to heal yourself – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And that to tap into that healing ability, you sometimes need help in the form of guidance and nurturing.
