The Healing Process – The Homeopathic Consultation (Part 2)

I want to continue talking about the homeopathic consultation. As I wrote in Part 1, it is always finding out about the person, and then giving them the homeopathic remedy that is similar to what they are experiencing. In this post, I want to talk about the healing process, the course of treatment.

The Course Of Treatment

Quite often over the course of treatment, more than one homeopathic remedy will be needed. The treatment starts with one homeopathic remedy, which is similar to what the person is experiencing. Follow up appointments let us see how the person is moving through their treatment. This first homeopathic remedy may be used for awhile. Or, after a period of time, 15 days, a month, several months time, another homeopathic remedy may be needed. As the person is moving and healing other rock-layers-3578_1280symptoms, older symptoms and states emerge. A different homeopathic remedy will be needed at this time. In a way, it is like one layer is exposed, and heals, and other layers emerge, going deeper to the core of the person. It is a process of healing.

A Patient

I want to tell you about a patient I have worked with for the past 18 months. I gave her several homeopathic remedies over this period of time. She initially came to see me because she had been in an accident. She suffered a head and brain injury. She was going for western medical treatment, and was doing well with it. She also wanted homeopathy to be part of her care. Her injury situation was more than a first aid situation. My job was to find out about her – what was bothering her and how she was experiencing it.

The first homeopathic remedy helped her a lot. She was feeling better, and was able to do more of the activities that she had found difficult to do after the accident. She was able to use technological devices better; focus and stay on task longer without feeling discomfort; and was experiencing less discomfort, brain fog and dizziness. And she continued to keep improving.

During this period of time, she was starting to go through menopause. The homeopathic remedy helped her through this as well, although the menstrual and menopausal symptoms were not the reason why she had come in for homeopathic treatment. To me, this shows how homeopathy is truly a holistic medicine, and addressing the whole person.

About 9 months into her treatment, at one of the follow up appointments, what she was saying that bothered her was completely different from what had bothered her before. Now, she was feeling very out of control, and that it was easy to be controlled by external things and other people. She described it as if she was being sucked dry, penetrated, and engulfed. She expressed this in a very emotional way, and said this is something she has experienced before in some of her relationships. This was a new picture of her, a new layer. I gave her a different homeopathic remedy. She did well with it.

About 6 months after that, again she was talking differently. What was bothering her now was her neck and shoulders. This was something she has experienced off and on most of her life, although, after having been in the accident, the neck discomfort was not upper most for her. In fact, she didn’t bring it up until later on, until she was doing better from the accident. I gave her another homeopathic remedy that addressed this new layer.

How Healing Occurs

This patient is a good example of how healing occurs, showing that there are different layers to a person. What was bothering her the most after the accident was the difficulties she was having from the head and brain injury – functioning, discomfort, and pain.  As this was doing better, another layer emerged. This layer sand-spiralhad an emotional feeling of being engulfed. As this was doing better, the discomfort and pain in her neck and shoulder emerged. In a way, we go backwards when we heal. We go from the newest to the oldest. This is a one of the Directions of Cure that Constantin Herring wrote about.

I give this example of this woman to show you that very often more than one homeopathic remedy is needed over the course of treatment. Healing is a process. There might not be one homeopathic remedy that is the end all for someone, but several homeopathic remedies may be needed that help move the person towards health. Each homeopathic remedy being a major part of the person’s healing. That is  why, it is a course of treatment, and happening over a period of time.

Chamomilla – The Homeopathic Remedy

Many people drink Chamomile tea, especially at night, to help them relax so they may have a better night’s sleep. The homeopathic remedy Chamomilla is often used for children who are teething. I want to talk more about the homeopathic remedy Chamomilla.

Three People Who Benefited From Using The Homeopathic Remedy Chamomilla

Recently I gave Chamomilla to a woman who was having pain in her right ear. She had had some pain in her temple, forehead, and the lower right side of her head a week before. The pain settled in the right ear. It was pulsating and throbbing. It was not a constant pain, but when she did experience it, she found it difficult to do other activities because the pain genuine-chamomile-58642__480was so present. Over a two day period, she took several doses of the homeopathic remedy Chamomilla, the pain diminished and then finally went away.

Years ago, I gave Chamomilla to a young woman who felt very angry. If someone said something to her that seemed like an insult or she thought was rude, she felt very hurt and angry. It was if it was a blow to her, not a physical one, but an emotional blow. She did very well with the homeopathic remedy Chamomilla.

I mentioned above about a teething baby being helped with Chamomilla. The baby may be biting because the pain and the discomfort felt in their gums is unbearable. The biting actually may ease the pain, and may be the way he is expressing anger from being in such intense pain.

Chamomilla

Chamomilla is a plant from the Compositae Family. The homeopathic remedies Arnica Montana and Calendula are also in this plant family, and have the same sensitivity. This sensitivity is to being injured, experiencing a trauma, feeling bruised and sore, feeling abused, and feeling beaten. The sensitivity can be experienced both physically and emotionally. The second case I give shows how someone would feel injured on an emotional level.

Here are links to posts I have written on Arnica Montana and Calendula. These posts talk about the use of these two remedies for first aid situations.

Characteristics Of The Homeopathic Remedy Chamomilla

Here are a few characteristics of Chamomilla that would guide a homeopath to choosing this remedy for someone:

  • unbearable pain
  • pains are throbbing, sharp like a sudden attack
  • capricious -wants something now, and then when it is given doesn’t want it anymore
  • extremely angry, irritable – difficult to be around,  may not want to be touched
  • wants to be carried
  • worse at night, from cold air
  • better from cold applications
  • may have a fever
  • one check is red and hot, and the other one is pale and cool
  • stool is like a chopped spinach consistency

*******

I write about Chamomilla because it is used very often by people, as a tea and as a homeopathic remedy. By giving you some information about the homeopathic remedy, you can start to see that each homeopathic remedy has their own unique picture, just as each of us do.

If I can be of any help to you or your loved ones, I invite you to contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. And enjoy your cup of tea!

What Is A Homeopathic Medicine?

Although, many people know the word homeopathy, since they hear it being used in the media, and also see it printed on products, they don’t really know what homeopathy is. For many, homeopathy has become synonymous for natural, and used that way in the media when blocks spelling homeopathydescribing healing modalities and products. When someone hears me talk about what I do, when I am talking about homeopathy, they may say to me, or think to themselves, what she is talking about is essential oils, herbal medicine, and/or supplements. But that is not what homeopathy is.

Homeopathy is its own system of medicine. It was developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s. Homeopathy means “similar suffering”. Through listening, observing, and understanding what bothers the person and how they experience it, a homeopathic medicine is given that is similar. This similar homeopathic medicine stimulates the person’s own healing. To read more about homeopathy and homeopathic remedies. (I encourage you to read this. And I use the words homeopathic remedy and homeopathic medicines interchangeably.)

What Is A Homeopathic Medicine?

Because homeopathy is often confused with other healing modalities. I wanted to tell you what a homeopathic medicine is. There are over 4000 homeopathic-remedies-bottles-different-35796044homeopathic medicines. They are made from plants, minerals, animals, and other natural sources. Think how many plants there are in the world. Many of these plants have been made into homeopathic medicines. Think of the periodic table. All of these elements have been made into a homeopathic medicine. And think of animals – mammals, snakes, spiders, insects, mollusks, sea animals, and birds. Many of these have been made into homeopathic medicines.

Only a small part of the substance that the homeopathic medicine is being made from is used to make the homeopathic medicine. And with animals, the animal is not killed. A small part of the milk, wing, blood, or venom is used to make the homeopathic medicine.

The homeopathic medicines that I use in my practice are purchased from a homeopathic pharmacy, such as Hahnemann in Northern California, and Helios in England. These pharmacies make the homeopathic medicines on their premises, using the method that Dr. Samuel Hahnemann developed. There are other pharmacies in Europe, India, the US, and other parts of the world.

Your Use Of Homeopathic Medicines

Many of you have used the homeopathic medicine Arnica montana for bruising and shock after an injury, a trauma, dental work, or a fall. And possibly you have used other homeopathic medicines. Some of you have seen a homeopath for treatment. You have found homeopathy to be healing and helpful.

Healing With Homeopathy

The healing with homeopathic care is deep. Homeopathy is helpful for many of the health concerns people experience today. I invite you to see how homeopathy can be a deep healing for you, and for your loved ones. I would be happy to talk with you. Either contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I have a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Colyocynthis, and Homeopathy are Safe to Use with Babies

I saw that someone who had read my blog was wondering if it is safe to give the homeopathic medicine Colocynthis to babies. Yes, it is safe. It is safe to give any homeopathic medicine to babies.

                                                                                            happy baby

Because a baby can’t verbally tell you in words how they feel, you need to observe how the baby is experiencing their symptoms, their pains, their moods, what makes them worse, what makes them better, and what is different from their usual behavior.  You are matching what the baby is experiencing to the homeopathic medicine that has the similar state of the baby. This is LIKE CURES LIKE or The Law of Similars, the main principle of homeopathy.

To give the homeopathic medicine it would be helpful to dissolve the pellets (3 -4) in a 4 ounce glass of filtered water. This would make it easier for the baby to take, since their tongue may thrust the pellets out of their mouths. When using the dissolved medicine one dose is equivalent to one teaspoon. If you are going to give another dose, it would be another teaspoonful.  Wait 30 minutes before and after food, bottle or breast to give the homeopathic medicine.

Keep the dissolved homeopathic medicine covered with saran wrap. The medicine is good for up to 24 hours and then you would need to throw it out and start again, if still using this homeopathic medicine.

Probably 1 – 3 doses may be needed. If the baby is doing better, stop giving the homeopathic medicine. The medicine is still working; it stimulates the baby’s healing process. If the symptoms return, then give another dose of the homeopathic medicine.

And it is always good to see a homeopathic practitioner, or doctor, if the symptoms continue. Self treating is good up to a point.
