More 4 – Coronavirus And Homeopathy – There Is Help

video

My intention in my blogs and newsletters is to give positive and constructive ways to help in our health and healing, whether for acute health concerns, chronic issues, first aid situations, and with the coronavirus that we are experiencing now.

Above is a video I made of me talking about the need for homeopathy and how it can be helpful during this time. Click on the “video” above to view.

STATISTICS DURING THE CORONAVIRUS

The following are statistics of 204 people who used homeopathy during this time of the coronavirus:

  • Much better               58  people   29%
  • Very much better     131 people   64%
  • Somewhat better      12  people     5%
  • No change                    5  people    2 %

From the total cases, 189 people are better (combining much better and very much better). 93%. That is high! These statistics mirror the similar statistics when homeopathy was used in other epidemics in history, such as in the Dengue fever, Yellow Fever. Whopping Cough, Asian Flu, and the Spanish Flu.

Most of these 204 cases needed at least 2 – 4 different homeopathic remedies in the healing process. I mentioned that before in a prior post, that often we will need more than one homeopathic remedy. There are different stages of this virus, and as a person moves from one stage to another, a different homeopathic remedy is needed that fits that stage, and fits what the person is experiencing.

HOMEOPATHY AND CORONAVIRUS

I continue to view webinars given by a few homeopaths all over the world. A handful of homeopathic remedies are emerging that are helpful for this virus. More homeopathic remedies are being added.

I am hearing that the virus is mutating and changing. Different symptoms are coming up, affecting different parts and systems of the body. I think you are probably hearing and reading about this too.

I mentioned in a previous post and also in my video above, that during an epidemic or pandemic, many cases of different people are taken, and put together and seen as one case, as one person. Then the homeopathic remedies that fit those cases, all those people, start to emerge. Whereas, for an individual’s chronic condition, just the symptoms of that person is taken, just their case, and a homeopathic remedy is matched to those symptoms.

In a way this virus is a reflection of what is happening in the world, in our environment, family rainbowin how we interact with each other, how we feel about each other and more. In homeopathic philosophy, epidemics are thought of as an acute disease, of which many, many people have. In a way, it is a release, like letting out steam from a pressure cooker.

By letting out the little bit of steam, in a way there is a healing of all of us and of the world. We see that a little bit in the cleaner air, cleaner waters and oceans, less congestion, the ozone hole in the Arctic has closed and more.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

I am seeing patients via technology. I am seeing patients both locally to the San Diego area and outside of the area, for various health concerns. This is a good time to take care of yourself.

I am trained as a classical homeopath. I always continue to learn. There is s big need for homeopathy. It is a wonderful healing modality and resource for people.

I wish you well. Be well. If I can be of help, homeopathically, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

More 3 – Coronavirus And Homeopathy – We Are Doing Our Best

I think we are all doing the best we can in these times.

For many, it is difficult  – whether staying inside and home; being alone; being with family and it is difficult; not seeing friends or loved ones: not working; having children home: changes in schedules; worried about finances; worried about getting sick; shopping; going out or not going out; missing an event or trip that was planned; feeling angry about what is going on; grieving; boredom and more.

People are being creative and resourceful – painting, singing, dancing, creating masks, cooking and baking, doing/offering webinars, finding new ways to do their business, learning, connecting with people in new ways, helping other people out with their shopping, planting a garden and ….

And there are restful moments, times that we feeling hope, connection, love, and togetherness.

I know for me, at times, I feel sad, feel angry, feel a dampening over me, as if there is a heaviness all over me. I feel anxious, restless, lonely, thankful, inspired and grateful. I am watching a lot of webinars and learning. I am painting. I am weeding. Doing yoga. Walking. Binging on programs. Connecting with friends. Putting homeopathy out there. painted fencce heart

We are all in this together. Someone wrote that we are in the same storm, but in different boats. We are in a similar experience, but may have different responses and reactions to what is going on from other people.

We are doing our best. We are doing the best we can.

And to be kind to ourselves.

HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy can be helpful for all the stages of this pandemic.

  • The stages of actually being sick – from the first signs of not feeling well, to later signs/symptoms and in between.
  • The stages of not actually being sick with the virus. But still not feeling well. All of what is triggered in us.
  • The stages of convalescence. Whether one was sick or one was not sick with the virus, we all have been affected by this. There may be lingering states, symptoms, fears, and sensitivities after this time has passed.  What will be afterwards?

Homeopathy is helpful for all of this.

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

I am continuing to see patients in the San Diego area and outside of the area for the coronavirus and any other health concern. I am seeing people via Skype, WhatsApp, Facetime and phone. You can contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

More – The Coronavirus And Homeopathy

In my last post, I had told you that I have been viewing webinars given by homeopaths from all over the world,  talking about what homeopathic remedies would be healing for this pandemic.  Homeopathic remedies are starting to emerge.

The remedies that homeopaths are seeing that are helpful for this epidemic are coming from many cases of patients who have the virus. A common theme/thread between these cases starts to emerge, and leading to the homeopathic remedies. It is almost as if many people make up one case, one individul.  And interestingly, where you are living in the world, also can determine which homeopathic remedies are healing for this pandemic.

ACONITE

The homeopathic remedy Aconitum Napellus – Aconite – is being suggested by many homeopaths to use when you are experiencing first signs of not feeling well, whether it is a fever, a scratchy throat, achiness, a little cough, a runny nose etc. The person might also feel homeopathy pelletsquite anxious, panicky, fearful,  and may be fearing that they may die.  (A lot of us are feeling panicky.)

By using Aconite, it may stave off the virus developing further, or make the symptoms less severe. Other homeopathic remedies may be useful after using Aconite. It is good then to see a homeopath.

My suggestion is to use Aconite 30C. You probably can purchase it at your local health food stores, or Whole Foods type of stores.  I know someone who ordered it from Amazon.

People usually take remedies dry, just taking the pellets, but in acute/first aid situations I have them dissolve the remedy. This makes it that you don’t need to use so many pellets. When initially made the homeopathic remedies are a liquid, so when you dissolve the remedy you are bringing it back to its original form.

Instructions:

  • Dissolve two pellets in 4 ounces of filtered/spring type water.  I am saying to use just two pellets, so that you have the remedy for later use for yourself or for other people.  If you use more pellets you are not increasing the dosage.
  • One teaspoonful is one dose. Before taking the dose, stir the water 1 – 3 times.  Stirring slightly increases the potency/strength of the remedy.
  • You may want to take several doses in a day – such as 4 for a couple of days. If you start to feel better, stop taking the remedy. You may need to start taking it again in a few days, if some of the symptoms come back. That is part of the healing.
  • The water is good for 24 hours, and then you need to throw it out, and start new. Washing every thing in hot water.
  • This one glass of dissolved Aconite could be used for the whole household. Homeopathy is helpful for all ages, babies through older adults. Each person having their own teaspoon and washing it before using it again. By sharing the dissolved remedy, you are  making sure you have enough of the remedy.  And if it is a lot of people, you may want to use 6 – 8 ounces of water

HOMEOPATHY TO HEAL

It is good to also follow the prodigals that we are hearing about, and to see your physician if needed.

Homeopathy is a wonderful healing resource. I am seeing patients during this time, local to and outside of the San Diego area. I can work via phone, WhatsApp, Facetime or Skype. If I can be of help to you or your family, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com

I wish you all well.

Caring For Ourselves During This Time – Coronavirus and Homeopathy

I have wondered whether to write about the Coronavirus and homeopathy or not. To me, the word “surreal” keeps coming up to describe what is going on now.

Over the last month or so, I have read from different homeopaths’ newsletters and watched different webinars addressing this health concern. Some homeopathic remedies are mentioned that are helpful, but this information keeps changing because we are getting new information all the time.

A Few Things I Want To Say

Homeopathy can be very helpful if you or a loved one develops the Coronavirus. It is finding out how the person is experiencing the virus – what their symptoms are like, and giving the homeopathic remedy that is similar. Homeopathy was very helpful during the 1918 flu epidemic. The mortality right of those people who used homeopathy was very low.

What I have read is that if you develop a fever, don’t suppress it by taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen. A fever is the body’s way of fighting/burning off bacteria and viruses by warming and heating up the body. This Coronavirus does not like heat. We don’t want to suppress the fever. So even if you are not ill, drink hot drinks, not cold ones. And take a hot bath or shower. Putting Epsom Salts in the bath water can be helpful. If you do develop a fever, there are homeopathic remedies that can help. Ferrum phosphricum 30C or the Cell Salt by Hylands Ferrum Phosphoricum 6X (depending on what is available), may help generally, without knowing the specificness of the fever.

The emotional state of the person is also important. Many of us may be feeling a lot of fear, ceramic heartsanxiety and panic. This all adds to our stress level. Personally for me, I have been thinking do I have enough of what I need – enough food, water (I buy water from the water store), gas in my car, etc. My feelings of enough actually come from when I was growing up. I did have enough material things, like food, but I didn’t feel that there was enough attention and love to go around. So with this situation that we are all in, some of our own emotional states and sensitivities are being triggered. I am also putting together homeopathic remedies to send to my two sons to add to the homeopathic kit they already have.

Previous Posts

I am giving links to previous posts I have written about coughs and flus. In these posts, I list some homeopathic remedies that are helpful.

Be Kind To Yourself

Be kind and loving to yourself. Listen to what you need. If you are feeling panicky and anxious, accept it, and do things to help yourself with it. Dopaper music hearts activities that you enjoy.  This time could actually be a very restful, calming and loving time.

Homeopathy To Heal

If I can be of help to you or a loved one homeopathically, in regards to what is happening now, or for other health concerns, please contact me either through this blog or my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I work via Facetime and WhatsApp in addition to in-person appointments.

When The Holiday Season Is Difficult – Homeopathy Can Help

It is just about the start of the holiday season. Stores are starting to be more crowded. The temperatures are cooler. We are making plans – to travel, to see friends and family, to host and attend parties, for celebrations, and to shop. This time of year can be both wonderful, and can be difficult for people.

It brings up a lot in us, about ourselves, our families, our financial situation, our childhoods, our futures, our children, our hopes, our dreams, and our health. In many, many ways, it is a busier time of the year.

THE HOLIDAY SEASON

During the holiday season, we can be more susceptible to becoming ill with a cold or flu or there could be a flare up of an ongoing chronic health concern that we experience tree reflectionfrom time to time. Someone may say, you know, every year around the Christmas holidays I get sick, like with a really bad flu. Or someone else may say, this time of the year is when I get so many asthma attacks, I wonder why. And for others, their digestion may be off. Some may experience more headaches. Others are feeling more anxiety or depression. And others may have flare ups of their skin eruptions. These are just a few of what some people may experience.

THERE MAY BE MORE TRIGGERS

We may be more sensitive to our surroundings at this time of the year, and therefore experience more triggers.

  • Our schedule is different, sleeping too little, staying up later at night and getting up early in the morning.
  • The foods we eat are different. We eat and drink too much.
  • We travel and are in different time zones.
  • We are around more people, the general public and our families and friends.
  • We are alone, and may feel isolated.
  • We have expectations of the holidays, of ourselves, and where we are in our lives.

All of these could be triggers, and then we don’t feel well.

TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES

The important thing is to take care of ourselves. Listen to what we need or not need, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Listen to our gut. Check in with ice-crystal-64157_960_720ourselves. Trust and honor ourselves.

Homeopathy can be very helpful and healing during this time of the year. Issues, emotions, situations, responses, reactions, physical complaints and concerns may come more to the surface at this time of the year.

I invite you to give yourself, and/or a loved one, the gift of health. I would be happy to talk with you, either through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

I wish you all a wonderful, happy, joyous, fun and safe holiday season.

It Is Always A Good Time To Use Homeopathy

With the start of new school year, I wanted to repost this blog. Even though I am talking about children in this blog, homeopathy is wonderful for all ages.

*******

When I speak to a mom/dad/grandparent about their child, I almost always say this is a good time for your child to come in for homeopathic care. I say this whether the child is a baby (3 1/2 month old), young child, teenage child or 20 something child, or older. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.

Why Is It A Good Time?

a-smile-333604_960_720It is a good time because the child is so young. The health issue that the child is experiencing is not entrenched; they have not had it for a long period of time. Children have a very strong vital force/vitality and respond well to homeopathy.

It is a good time because the child may have just started using medications, or is not using them at all. These medications may help with the symptoms and ease the discomfort, the behavior, the breathing, the itching, but they are not really healing. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

It is a good time because the child is still growing and developing their bodies, their minds, and who they are as a person. As parents, we want the best for our children, in their health and in their life.

It is a good time because often when a child is doing better, it affects the whole family unit, healing the family.

It is a good time because – I have a soft spot for children. I guess this is my “because”.

What Do Parents Call About?

These are some of the health concerns parents have called me about:

  • ear aches and ear infections – the child may have been on several courses of antibiotic.
  • digestive issues, such as acid re flux, spitting up, stomachaches after eating, chronic diarrhea, difficulty eating certain foods, constant nausea
  • skin eruptions – eczema, warts, rashes
  • continually crying and seeming to be in pain or discomfort
  • breathing difficulties, such as asthma
  • difficultly focusing on school work
  • behavioral issues – angry outbursts, tantrums, pulling inside oneself by withdrawing
  • chronic coughs
  • menstrual issues – painful cramps, being very emotional and weepy
  • reactions to vaccinations
  • sleep issues – insomnia, nightmares
  • fears
  • just not feeling well

A SIMPLE EXAMPLE OF HOMEOPATHY – LIKE CURES LIKE

When someone has a cold or an allergy, their nose may be continually runny. Their eyes are  tearing, burning, and stinging. They want to rub their eyes to ease the discomfort. The homeopathic remedy Allium cepa, made from the red onion, can be very helpful for someone who is experiencing these types of symptoms, whether it is a cold or allergies.

Allium cepa is helpful because it is similar to what the person is experiencing. (LIKE CURES LIKE) When you think about what happens when you cut an onion, your eyes tear, burn and sting. And your nose runs. The crying isn’t like when you are sad, which is just tearing, but here, you want to rub and wipe your eyes.

HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the person, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits this person. This applies to someone who is experiencing behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.

It is always good to check with your physician. Homeopathy can be used alongside western medicine.

Homeopathy Helpful For Women In Their Cycle – Puberty To After Menopause

We as women go through a cycle in our lifetime, our reproductive cycle. Starting with menstruation, having a period and being fertile, giving birth, breastfeeding, starting to two womengo through menopause, and then after menopause.

The cycle is a whole. Each stage a woman goes through is part of this whole. It is all connected. How a woman was during puberty or what her periods are like, may be informative to how menopause will be for her. Getting a thorough history of the woman is important.

Very often, I hear from women that they are taking some form of hormones, whether it is hormonal replacement therapy (HRT), or thyroid medications.  There are changes in a woman’s hormones as she goes through the reproductive stages. These hormonal changes can affect other parts and functioning of the woman’s body, and her emotional and mental state.

Homeopathy can be used along with western medicine, such as HRT and thyroid medications. Homeopathy can be a part of a woman’s ongoing health care.

These are some of the health concerns women may experience during this cycle – puberty thru after menopause.

  • insomnia
  • depression/anxiety
  • digestive issues
  • hot flashes
  • weight gain
  • headaches/migraines
  • restless legs
  • arthritis type symptoms
  • concern about osteoporosis
  • heart issues
  • a difficult labor and birth – c section
  • fertility issues – not able to get pregnant, miscarriages
  • thyroid issues
  • liver/gallbladder issues
  • loss or trauma in your life – emotional, physical, a surgical procedure, accident, fall
  • menstrual issues
  • change in libido
  • vaginal dryness
  • vulva sensitivity
  • skin eruptions
  • fibroids
  • endometriosis
  • lingering affects from a trauma

What is bothering you? I invite you to contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.  And if there is a woman that you love, please pass this on to her.

*******

Tip: Although this is not homeopathy, a suggestion if you are using Magnesium as a supplement, perhaps to help in falling asleep or for cramping. Dissolving the Magnesium pill in water. Drinking the water may be an easier way of taking this supplement. I personally have a hard time swallowing the rather larger Magnesium pill.

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.

Homeopathy To Heal

If I can be of help to you, and/or your family, please contact me and let’s talk to see if homeopathy would be a good fit. You can contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Repost: When A Child Runs A Fever

About a year ago, I wrote a blog post about children and fevers. I am reposting it here. We often feel frightened when a loved one is running a fever, and feel that we need to do something about it right away.

Fevers are part of our body’s innate healing process. There are homeopathic remedies that are helpful when someone has a fever.

Here is the post:

This weekend I was at a friend’s open house, and I was talking to a mom about her 2 year old little girl, Sarah, not her real name. Sarah was getting over being sick.  She had had a fever that ran more at night, than in the daytime. She had the fever for about 2 days, and it was pretty high. Sarah’s mom told me that this was the first time Sarah has been sick, and it was frightening to see her daughter run the fever and not feel well.

I commented to Sarah’s mom, that a fever is a good thing. It is the body’s way of healing. She agreed with me.

This is more of what I told Sarah’s mom:

Children often run higher fevers than adults do. With children, fevers, and other symptoms, come on quickly and suddenly, and seem to be very extreme; and, the fevers go away quickly and suddenly as well. This suddenness and extreme symptoms teddy-242868_960_720are a reflection of a STRONG vital force. It is a good sign. It is showing health. The body is doing what is does so well. The person doesn’t necessarily feel so good, but a fever is a good sign of health.

In comparison, someone who does not have a strong vital force, such as an older person or someone who has an ongoing chronic condition, may not run a fever at all, run a low fever, or run a fever on and off. And the illness may just drag on.

I added, that it is very common for children to run a fever at night, be fine the next day, playing and being active, and then run the fever again at night. Sarah’s mom said that is what had happened with Sarah, for two days.

I could tell that Sarah’s mom felt better hearing this. She seemed more relaxed, knowing that Sarah is healthy, and her body is  doing what a healthy body does.

*******

Sometimes, a person needs some help in their healing process. Homeopathy can be very helpful when someone is running a fever, has the flu, or has a cold. And if you are concerned when you or a loved one is running a fever, it is always good to check with your physician.

If I can be of any help, please contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I do see patients outside the San Diego area through the use of Skype, Whatsapp and Facetime.

Repost: Homeopathy, Helpful When Someone Has The Measles

This is a reposting of a blog I wrote in February 2015.

We have been hearing a lot again in the news about outbreaks of the measles. When I wrote the post, I felt it was important to give positive and constructive information if someone does become sick with the measles. I still feel that way.  I have added a few other things to the post.

*******

I think it is important for parents to know that if their child, or themselves as an adult, become ill with measles, or any other childhood disease, homeopathy can help during these times. And, to know that homeopathy is helpful if someone has vaccinated their child and there are adverse reactions to the vaccines.

The body has a wonderful ability to heal itself. It is when the body gets stuck, that help may be needed, and this is when homeopathy will be useful. The homeopathic remedies are helping the body with its own healing abilities.

It is important to see your physician, and if you choose to use homeopathy, to see a practitioner of homeopathy, a homeopath, to help in this health situation. You don’t want to self treat.

Measles

Measles is one of several childhood diseases. It is important that the rash develops, and moves downward. That is an indication of healing – from the inside out, and from the top downward. To read more about direction of healing, read my blog post on direction of cure.

Symptoms of measles:

  • Fever of 102 – 104 Fahrenheit
  • Watery eyes – eyes inflamedmeasles
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Hard, dry cough
  • Sore throat
  • Seldom has an appetite
  • Tongue may be coated
  • Breath – sick smelling
  • Rash may start in mouth on 2nd or 3 rd day. Tiny, white spots in inner lining of the mouth, called Koplik’s Spots.
  • On 4th or 5th day, an itchy red, rash will appear. Large, flat blotches. They may run into each other. The rash starts on the face, moving downward. (This is a Direction of Cure.) Lasting 4 -7 days. Rash is a good sign.
  • Fever may rise as rash moves down the body, and subside in a few days.
  • Lasts around 10 days
  • Most contagious, 2 – 4 days before rash appears. Still keep child isolated for 5 days after rash develops.

Observation To Help Come to a Homeopathic Remedy

It is best to observe the person: their physical state, emotional state, and mental state. It is matching what the person is experiencing to a homeopathic remedy that is similar. This is Like Cures Like or the Law of Similiars, the main principle of homeopathy.

Some areas to observe and note:

  • Symptoms come on suddenly or gradually
  • Which are the prominent symptoms? Fever, restlessness, fatigue, eye irritations, runny nose, rash
  • Color of nasal discharge. Does it irritate the skin?
  • Sensitivity to light. How do the eyes feel?
  • Reaction to motion
  • Limbs or facial muscles jerk or twitch
  • Feel tired or heavy
  • Cough or chest pains. What is the cough like?
  • Headache. Location of pain.  What is pain like?
  • Rash – present or not, discomfort
  • Thirst or no thirst.
  • Digestive issues – nausea, diarrhea, constipation.
  • Emotional state – irritability, wanting to be alone, wanting to be around others
  • Desire of fresh air

Of course, it is important to get as much rest and sleep as one can, drink fluids, eat if one wants to or not. Being in a dark room may help if someone is very sensitive to the light. Vitamin C and A can be helpful as well.

Homeopathic Remedies

homeopathic vialsThe ill person may start with one homeopathic remedy and then need to change to another, as they move through the illness. The homeopathic remedies are helping the body in its own healing abilities. One homeopathic remedy is used at a time.

Here is a short description of some of the remedies that are useful when someone has the measles.

We are hearing news that may scare us. I want to ease your fears and to give you information that is helpful.

If you or a loved one has developed measles, contact your physician, and also contact a homeopath to help with homeopathic care during this time. I am available either through this blog, or through my website http://www.homeopathytoheal.com
