Wanting The Best For Our Loved Ones

I was in New York City last week, visiting my father and stepmother. This trip was the inspiration for today’s blog post. I enjoyed my visit with them.

Each of us want to help our love heartfamily and our friends with their health, especially if they are not feeling well. We want them to eat well; sleep well; exercise; see the doctor when necessary and/or for preventive care; do activities they enjoy; see holistic practitioners, have loving relationships; be happy and more. We want the best for them. And we don’t want to see them suffering, if we know there is a way to help them.

I too want to help my family when they are not well. And I often want to help them by using homeopathy. Sometimes, they take me up on it, and sometimes they don’t.

Our Loved Ones  

Frequently, I receive a phone call from a parent, a spouse, an aunt, a grandmother, an adult child, or a good good friend. Each of these callers have a concern about a particular family member, a friend – a loved one. The caller wants to either make an appointment immediately for their loved one, (the caller is is usually a parent) or to talk about their concerns and how homeopathy could be of help for their loved one. After this initial contact, I sometimes do hear from the loved one themselves. And sometimes, the loved one makes an appointment and comes in after we have talked on the phone.

I find that it is ultimately up to the loved one to make the choice of whether to proceed with their family’s or friend’s suggestion, in this case with homeopathic care. We can lead them to it, but it is up to the loved one whether to go forward or not to go forward.

Homeopathy To Heal

I like to encourage people to use homeopathy as a choice in their health care. People nowadays are looking for a natural and holistic healing that is non-invasive and non-toxic. Homeopathy fits that well. Homeopathy is truly a holism form of medicine. Homeopathy homeopathy pelletsaddresses the whole person and each person as the individual they are. We are each unique, and need to receive treatment that fits us, not a one size fits all type of treatment.

The homeopath observes, listens, and witnesses, what bothers the patient. The homeopath wants to how the patient doesn’t feel well; how the pain, the symptoms, and the discomfort are for the patient; and what their suffering is like.

From all of the information that is gathered and observed, a homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to what the person is experiencing. The main principle of homeopathy is the Law of Similars (Like Cures Like). This homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing ability. There are over 4000 homeopathic remedies. You can see why it is important to go to a trained homeopath, so that the homeopathic remedy that is similar to the person is given, and then a healing can begin.

I invite you, whether it is for yourself or for a loved one, to see how homeopathy can be of help to one’s health, especially if you are not feeling well. Either contact me on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk to you.

How Would You Answer These Four Questions?

ice-crystal-64157_960_720How are you not feeling well?

How long have you not been feeling well?

How does this not feeling well affect your life?

How would you like to feel differently?

What would your answers be to these four questions? What would you say?

*******

What Some People Have Said

We are all different in what we say is bothering us. And we are all different in how we experience “not feeling well”. Here is what a few people have said when answering these questions:

  • I am so exhausted. I can’t even vacuum my house. I am so tired. I get up in the morning, and then I need to take a nap very soon afterwards. I would like to have the energy I used to have.
  • I have these skin eruptions. It is eczema. I have always had this. It is always itching and is all over my body. I want this eczema gone!
  • I have had this cough for the last 3 months. Sometimes I have a coughing fit, and then I feel so tired afterwards. I can’t talk too much because I will start coughing. I would like to feel better. I would settle with just not coughing as much.
  • My child goes to school for only half a day. He becomes so upset with snowflakeshimself if he doesn’t do an assignment right, or the way he feels it needs to be done. He will get mad at himself, and sometimes throw things or run away and hide. He takes medication daily, but he still feels this way. I would like him to be happy – to not be so upset with himself, to enjoy school and to have friends.
  • I always have to watch the kinds of foods I eat, otherwise, I have severe stomach pains and diarrhea. I feel so limited in what I can eat. I have to know where all the bathrooms are located when I go out. I would like to be able to eat like everyone else.
  • I have allergies. Every spring I am so congested, and it is difficult to breath. To breath all year round would be great!
  • I have hot flashes at night. I wake up in the middle of the night, feeling very anxious, and then the hot flashes come. I sweat so much. And during the day I feel so anxious too.  No more sweats and hot flashes, that is what I would like.
  • I feel so emotional about things that are happening in my life. I cry all the time. To not be so emotional, or to understand it better.
  • I just don’t feel well. I am tired all the time, and have this cold that just won’t go away. My doctor says, I am fine, but I feel as though I am not fine. To feel well and not be tired would be good.

This Is A Start

What each person said about themselves is a start in learning about them. If they choose to come in for homeopathy, together we go deeper to understand more fully what this “not feeling well” is like for them. We are all different in how we experience “not feeling well”, whether it is a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual complaint.

I invite you to think about these four questions. How would you answer them? Mull them over. Maybe write down what comes to you. And, after you have done that, and you are wanting to feel better, contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com, and let’s get you feeling better.

Using Skype For A Homeopathic Appointment

Last week I wrote about making a house call to see a patient. This week, I want to talk about using Skype for a homeopathic consultation appointment. In a way, it is like making a house call; you can see a little bit of the patient’s environment. I use Skype with skyp cartoonpatients who do not live locally to the San Diego area; patients who may not be able to come in for an appointment; or patients, who may live locally, but a house call is not feasible.

Using Skype

Mostly, I use Skype with patients that don’t live in the San Diego area. I have several patients with whom I work with this way. Skype is a free program, that one downloads from the internet. It is easy to use. You do need a camera that is either part of the computer, or you can purchase a separate camera that attaches to the computer. Skype has enabled people to communicate visually and audibly with each other from all over the world.

skype-835470_960_720Important To See The Patient

As a homeopath, it is important to see the patient. I do quick check ins with a patient through emails, texts, and/or phone calls, but for the initial consultation, and for follow up appointments, seeing the patient is crucial.

 

When I meet with a patient, either in person or through Skype, I am listening and seeing what it is that bothers them. As the patient is talking, they will often use a hand gesture, move their body in a certain way, sit a certain way and/or be expressive with their face. These movements may come when certain words or descriptions are spoken or when they are sensing something within. All of this, their gestures and movements and their language is expressive of how they experience what bothers them.

As I have said in other posts, it is like getting into their world, hearing and seeing the perceptions and sensations of the person, and understanding their language. This is so whether they have a physical, an emotional, a mental, or a spiritual complaint/issue/symptom that brought them initially in for homeopathic care. It is finding out about the whole person. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to the wholeness of the person. This homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s innate healing abilities.

This Post

I write this post because some of you who read my blog may not live locally to San Diego, and are interested in homeopathy for yourself or for a loved one. Skype is a very good way to have an appointment when there is a distance.

I would be happy to talk further with you on how homeopathy can be of help for you. Please contact me here, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Recurring Health Concerns

This past week, I had a call from a father about his 3 month old baby daughter. He has had experience with homeopathy before having taken his older child to see a homeopath. He told me that his little baby daughter was not feeling well. She had had a cold several weeks ago, was better, but now she was not feeling well again. She wasn’t running a fever, and he didn’t think that she was in pain. He said she was irritable.

I was thinking that maybe her irritability was an expression of some sort of pain or discomfort. Obviously, she wasn’t feeling well. Babies and small children don’t tell us through words how they are feeling, but through sounds, behaviors, actions, movements, changes in moods and temperaments. This baby was expressing something through her irritability.

Unfortunately, the father cancelled the appointment he had made with me for his daughter. He told me that they had taken her to see a doctor, who said that it was a cold. The father decided to not pursue homeopathic care, at this time. I said, if the cold continues, or if it returns, it would be a good idea to bring your daughter in for homeopathic care, since she already has been experiencing a recurrence of this, and we don’t want that to continue.

People I Speak To

gumby sickWhen I talk to people either in person or on the phone, they tell me about their particular health concern. I hear all sorts of things, such as the person is experiencing pains and discomforts in their feet. They have an extremely itchy rash or eczema eruption. Breathing is difficult for them. The get very anxious in some situations. There are feelings of sadness or depression. They don’t sleep well. During their menstrual cycle certain symptoms come up. They are extremely fearful and/or have nightmares. They have ongoing headaches, stomachaches, or digestive issues. I hear all sorts of things. The person is not feeling well, and they want to feel better.

Recurring Health Concern

Their health concern is often something that has been going on for a awhile, or it had gone away and now it is recurring again. They have periodic flare ups of it. They are not feeling better from the type of treatment they are using for their health concern, and they want to feel better.

In a previous post, I wrote about a young boy who had recurring congestion, fevers and ear infections. The boy had taken several courses of antibiotics. Each time, he would be better for a month or so, and then the whole situation would happen again. The homeopathic remedy that fit him, that was similar to what he was experiencing, helped him to heal this recurrence of the ear infections, the fevers, and the congestion. He has done well.

Often when there is a recurring health concern, the treatment being used helps to ease and to palliate when there is an outbreak or flare up. This treatment helps the person feel better for the time being, but doesn’t heal the health concern. The person needs to continue taking the medication to feel better, often accepting that these recurrences will happen again, and again.

Does this sound like you?

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy heals at the root cause of what is bothering the person. It is a deep healing. As the person heals, the recurrences and flare ups become less and less, till they no longer happen at all. It is a healing. With the young boy I wrote of, I had thought there might be a recurrence of the ear infection as he was healing, but there wasn’t. The cycle was broken. With an adult, the stopping of the cycle may take longer to happen than with this young boy, since the adult has had this health concern for a longer period of time. But the cycle does end.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help a recurring health concern that you have. Either contact me here, through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a 15 minute complimentary Get Acquainted Call. I would be happy to talk with you about your health concern and/or a loved one.

It is always good and beneficial to hear other professionals, such as this physician, Dr. Ron Manzanero, talk about homeopathy. This video is one of the broadcasts from The Natural Way.

It is important to get the word out about how homeopathy heals.

Dr. Rajan Sankaran Talks About Homeopathy

To continue with THERE IS A NEED FOR HOMEOPATHY, I have included a wonderful video made by Dr. Rajan Sankaran talking about homeopathy. He is a homeopath from Bombay, India and developed with his colleagues the Vital Sensation Method of homeopathy. The video is a little more than 8 minutes long and titled “Answer to Critic” . Here is the link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2htwWueR1g

Dr. Rajan Sankaran

 

These are some of the highlights for me in the video. I would suggest that you watch it for yourself.

  • In his practice, Dr. Sankaran’s patients are feeling better from homeopathic care.  He sees that what brought the person in to see him is better, as well as the person is feeling better in themselves.  This is what any homeopath looks for in the treatment.
  • Not to worry if homeopathy is logical or not. Simply watch the results.
  • Science is what actually happens. We don’t always understand it at the time. Later on, we may understand it.  If we don’t understand it, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Dr Sankaran gives the example of the apple falling from a tree/gravity.
  • Western medicine looks at the parts of a person being ill. And treats that part; treats it locally. This is similar to a car being worked on, replacing the part. The human body is not like that.
  • Each of us is a whole being. All the systems (parts) of the body are integrated and act as one being.  We are not parts. We need to treat the whole person.
  • Each person has their own individual specific state of disease. The homeopath perceives, reads, understands, observes each person’s own unique state. A homeopathic remedy or medicine is then selected that is like this person’s state. This produces a healing.
  • Stress is extremely individual. It is inside us, not outside of us. It is how each person perceives, experiences, responds and reacts to the situations in their life.

 ———————

This video further shows how homeopathy fills a need for people in their health care.  So many people experience chronic diseases, and are not doing better from the treatment they are receiving through western medicine. With homeopathy, the individual and their wholeness is being seen and treated. Then there can be a true healing.

Homeopathy – Treating the Person Not the Disease

What brings someone to homeopathy is often a specific health concern, a certain symptom or symptoms. For example, someone will say I have Fibromyalgia, can homeopathy help me?

As I said in my blog, THERE IS A NEED FOR HOMEOPATHY, homeopathy can help.

Homeopathy is treating the person, it is treating you, not the disease. The disease is a name, a label to a list of symptoms.  People ask me when they call or when I am talking with them, does homeopathy treat this or treat that? I say yes, it does help. Homeopathy is treating you who has this particular disease or symptom.

We are all unique individuals and experience the disease or symptoms differently from each other. Two people who “have” Fibromyalgia experience it uniquely to themselves. They each may have the common symptoms of Fibromyalgia, the ones listed under the label, the name, but each of them experience the fibromyagia symptoms differently. The how, the what of each person’s experience is what the homeopath wants to understand. This leads the homeopath to select the most similar homeopathic remedy to the person, to the person’s individual state. This is Like Cures Like or the Law of SImilars.  Homeopathy is addressing the healing of the whole person – the emotional, the mental, the physical, and the spiritual sides of the person.

.woman feelin good

There isn’t a homeopathic remedy for Fibromyalgia. There is, a homeopathic remedy for the individual person who is experiencing symptoms listed under the name of Fibromyalgia.  Please note, I used Fibromyalgia as an example. What I have written here applies to all disease names, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, urinary tract infections, migraines and more. Homeopathy is treating the person.

There is a Need for Homeopathy

There is a need for homeopathy. People need homeopathy. Every time someone calls me, for whatever health concern they have, I say to myself after talking with them, there really is a need for homeopathy.

There is a need because people are not feeling better. They may be on medications, which temporarily eases the symptoms, but they are not feeling better. There has been no healing. People are looking for other ways to help in their health care. Looking for a deeper healing, a gentler healing and no side effects. Homeopathy fits that description.

Need for homeopathy in acute conditions

A post on The National Center for Homeopathy’s (NCH) Facebook page writes about the need for homeopathy. Specifically, the topic is how strains of bacterial infections have become resistant to antibiotics due to their over use in medical care and in farm animals.  The post continues to say how homeopathy is very effective in the treatment of bacterial and viral infections, in fact, homeopathy has been effective with these kinds of infections long before antibiotics were developed. Dr. Margaret Chan, the Director-General of the World Health Organization is quoted in the post. She says, ” Things as common as strep throat or a child’s scratched knee could once again kill…”

To read the full post, google “The National Center for Homeopathy July 8”. The NCH’s Facebook page will be the first entry. Click on that and then scroll down to July 8th. (The National Center for Homeopathy is a great resource: for practitioners, for articles and for information.)

Since this post on the NCH Facebook page is on bacterial infections,  I have included a wonderful video on how homeopathy  helped a man who had developed a MRSA infection. The title of the video is “One Story of Homeopathy – healing a Super bug”. It was made by the New York City filmmaker Marc Wishengrad about his own treatment when he contracted the “Super Bug” or MRSA – Methicillin-resistant-Staphylococcus aureus. 

Most of the time, the bacterial infection is not as severe as the one that Marc Wishengrad experienced. Homeopathy is very helpful when there are infections and high fevers. About two months ago, I received a phone call from the mother of a patient of mine. She was calling me to say that her 13 year old son was experiencing a very painful sore throat. It had come on very suddenly and he had a fever. She suspected it was strep, and was planning on taking him to the doctor, and perhaps have a throat culture taken.  I suggested using the homeopathic remedy Belladonna.

The picture of Belladonna is a sore throat that comes on suddenly, violently and severely painful. There is a fever, a restlessness, and sometimes hallucinations are experienced. Although the person is burning hot, there is no thirst.  There can be a sensitivity to light, and it is often has right sided symptoms. I told the mom to give him several doses of Belladonna, and to call me the next day. When I spoke to her the fever had broken and his throat was no longer as sore. Belladonna helped a lot. It is understanding what the suffering is of the person, and then selecting a homeopathic remedy similar to that suffering.  This is Like cures Like or the Law of Similars.

The MRSA infection and the sore throat are both examples of acute conditions. Homeopathy is wonderful in the healing of acute conditions.

Need for homeopathy in chronic conditions

Most of the people who call me are calling about chronic conditions.  These can range from skin eruptions, asthma, digestive issues, menstrual problems, urinary tract infections, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, obstruction in the nose, constriction feeling in the throat, ongoing gum pain and more. Chronic conditions are ongoing. Sometimes they ease off and the person feels better, but then there is a flare up, again, which often happens when there is more stress in someone’s life. Medication may ease the symptoms, but there is never a healing. Homeopathy is extremely helpful in these kinds of chronic conditions.

So when you or a loved one have a need, whether an infection or an on going condition, it may be time to go to a homeopath for treatment.

Using Homeopathic Remedies

Our society has the medication paradigm that if you have a symptom, a pain, a health concern take a medication, take a pill. So it is very common for people who are new to homeopathy to think that instead of taking medication, I will take a homeopathic remedy. Have a headache, take a homeopathic remedy; difficulty sleeping, take a homeopathic remedy to help them sleep; having continual indigestion, take a homeopathic remedy. They are replacing the homeopathic remedy for a pill. I was of this thinking as well, when I first was learning about homeopathy 22 year ago. It is very common. But this is not homeopathy. This is using homeopathy in an allopathic way. The thinking is that instead of using western medication for their headache, sleeping difficulties, indigestion, they will use something “natural” instead.

                                                                homeopathic remedies

Homeopathic remedies are in pellet form.

In homeopathy, the symptoms are the guideposts and signs that help lead to the choose of the homeopathic remedy that addresses the whole person. Through understanding the suffering of the person, a homeopathic remedy is selected that is similar to that person. This is the Law of Similars or Like Cures Like. Homeopathy is a wholistic form of medicine – looking at the symptoms as part of the totality of the person.  Just giving a remedy for one symptom is not homeopathy.

If there is an ongoing chronic condition, such as headaches, insomnia, digestive difficulties, and you the reader are looking for a homeopathic remedy to help, I would suggest that you see a homeopath rather than treating yourself by using homeopathy in an allopathic way.  A homeopath will take the time to look/observe/understand the totality of what bothers you, including that chronic condition, and then select a homeopathic remedy that is similar to what you are suffering. The homeopathic remedy addresses the totality of you, and stimulates a deep healing.

I am always happy to talk to people, and to answer any questions they may have about homeopathy and their health.

The Homeopathic Remedy Cuprum Metallicum is Safe

I saw that there was a search by someone asking if Cuprum metallicum is safe.  Yes, the homeopathic remedy Cuprum metallicum is safe. All homeopathic remedies are safe.  What I am writing here applies to all homeopathic remedies.

That said, you still want to be respectful of homeopathic remedies. You take a homeopathic remedy when it is similar to what the person is experiencing. This is like cures like or the Law of Similars, the main principle of homeopathy. The homeopathic remedy is only homeopathic if it is similar to what the person is experiencing; it is not homeopathic if it is not similar. Homeopathy means similar (homo) suffering (pathy).  If you take the remedy, one or two doses, and it is not helpful for you, it won’t hurt you. You want to stop taking that remedy then.

Homeopathic remedies are made in homeopathic pharmacies. The substance that the homeopathic remedy is made from, in this case Cuprum metallicum, is grounded up and then mixed with an alcohol/water solution. (Other substances may start in a mother tincture form.) A small part of this alcohol/water solution is diluted more, and then succussed (shaken vigorously and hit against something hard. Hahnemann used a bible). This dilution and succussion process is done many, many times creating the strength or potency of the homeopathic remedy. At the 12c potency, and the higher potencies, there is nothing left of the physical substance of which the homeopathic remedy is made from, in this case Cuprum metallicum. It is the energetic pattern of the substance. This process is called potentization. This is the Minimum Dose that Dr. Samuel Hahnemann developed in the late 1790’s, another principle of homeopathy.

 Koper (Cuprum metallicum) - copper                               12 Cuprum

Copper                                                                                    A vial of Cuprum metallicum 12C

During Hahemann’s time, many of the medicinal substances used were poisons, actually it is still like that today. Hahnemann found that by making the dose as small as possible, as mentioned in the above paragraph, the medicinal substance was curative and healing; the patient lived and didn’t die from the treatment. The healing was gentle with no side affects or toxicity.

To answer the question again, the homeopathic remedy Cuprum metallicum, or any other other homeopathic remedy, is safe. You want to be respectful of the homeopathic remedies. Use them with good judgement. That is why it is good to see a professional homeopath.
