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.

What Is Itching You? – Skin Eruptions And Homeopathy

Recently, I was in my local health food store. I was talking to one of the sales people who I have known for a long time. A woman came up to the sales person and said, I am the woman who called earlier about a product for my daughter to help remove skin tags. We all three were standing in the aisle where the homeopathic remedies were located, and that particular product was right in front of us. After the woman left, I looked at the product. It was a box, on which was written “Thuja Occidentalis Homeopathic”. I believe it was an ointment or a liquid that was used topically. (The plant Thuja Occidentalis is made into a homeopathic remedy. The wasn’t the homeopathic remedy of Thuja Occidentalis.)

This interaction inspired me to write about skin eruptions. I have written a little bit about this topic before in two earlier posts. One post talked about eczema, and the other post was in reference to Direction of Cure. I have given the links here.

Skin Eruptions

I know that many people, of all ages, suffer with different kinds of skin eruptions. A skin eruption can be eczema, psoriasis, impetigo, acne, skin irritationrosacea, cysts, boils, warts, skin tags, pustules, hives, or other rashes. They are experienced as being:

  • painful
  • a nerve type pain, such as in shingles
  • a burning pain
  • an itchiness
  • a soreness
  • a redness
  • an inflammation
  • swollen
  • an oozing and discharging of pus or blood
  • become scabbed
  • a dryness
  • a roughness
  • a scaliness and flakiness
  • an embarrassment
  • worrisome
  • a discomfort
  • wanting to hide it and cover it up
  • affecting one’s functioning ability at work and in social situations
  • more

Not Just On The Skin

Please note that I have listed physical sensations AND emotional responses AND how it affects one. I say this because skin eruptions are not just on the skin. They are a reflection of something deeper in the body, stairs spiralthat is manifesting on the skin. To just care for the skin eruption by doing something topically on the skin, such as this treatment that the woman was going to use for her daughter, is not necessarily healing, and is not addressing where the skin eruption is coming from.

A skin eruption is a response or a reaction of something deeper in the body or system of the person. These can be from:

  • an allergic reaction to foods, chemicals, toxins, fabrics, medicines or others substances in the person’s environment.
  • a systemic imbalance.
  • a hormonal change or part of a cycle. It get even be a response to birth control medication – when starting, during or stopping the medication.
  • a reaction to stress, anxiety, grief, fear, or other emotions. I know of a woman who developed hives soon after her husband passed away.
  • a part of the healing that accompanies a fever, such as in the measles and chicken pox. The rash in these childhood diseases are important and part of the healing process. You want the rash to be present.

Homeopathy To Heal

Homeopathy is very healing for people who suffer with skin eruptions. Homeopathy heals at the root of where the symptoms are coming from, in this case, where the skin eruptions are coming from. Each person experiences what bothers them differently. With the understanding of the person’s suffering, a homeopathic remedy that is similar to this is given. This homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process. The person feels better in themselves, and the symptoms that brought them in for homeopathic care are better. In this case, the skin eruptions are better.

To Continue My Story

After the mother had left, I said to the sales person, I would want to know what bothers the daughter. Perhaps the skin tags bother the mother more than they do the daughter. And in fact, they don’t bother the daughter at all. If the skin tags do bother the daughter, I would want to know how she experiences them. It is always finding out about the person, what bothers them, and how they experience it. It is not just treating someone with a one size fits all product.

To You, Who Use Holistic Forms Of Healing

I believe that most of you who read this blog are interested in your health, and want to take care of yourself and your family, in a holistic way.  Many of you have used chiropractic care, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, Chinese herbal medicine, herbal medicine, reiki, nutrition, massage, essential oils, supplements, diet, color therapy, sound therapy, energy therapy, line spiralcounseling, or other healing modalities. And have found one or several of these modalities to be helpful.

Some of you women may have seen a midwife, used a doula, a lactation specialist, or a hypnotherapist during your pregnancy, the birth, and after. I believe you found that whatever healing modalities you used were very helpful and healing for you.

Specifically Homeopathy

And some of you have had homeopathic care. You may have seen a homeopath, and had your case taken. You may have self-treated or treated a family member for first aid and/or an acute condition using homeopathic remedies. You may have just used the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana when there was an injury, a fall, or a trauma to your body knowing, or not knowing, that it was a homeopathic remedy. You found homeopathy to be helpful and healing in these particular situations.

(Please note, that I write about homeopathy separately from the other holistic modalities I listed. Why? Because homeopathy is its own form of holistic medicine, based on Like Cures Like. Homeopathy is so often confused, or thought of, as being a different healing modality than it is.)

A Picture of You

I have painted this picture of you.

I see you as being holistically health conscious and aware, wanting to be healthy, and using natural types of therapies. You are open, possibly searching and questioning, and thinking a little bit outside of the box. You take responsibility for your health, and are interested in knowing more about health and how to take care of yourself and your family.

I write this blog about homeopathy for people like you, because I know you want the best for yourself, and for your family in regards to health.

Thank you for reading my blog.

I would be happy to continue this conversation about health, yours or a loved one. Contact me here through this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

The Same Pattern Of You

Several weeks ago, I was having lunch with a woman I had met recently. We were learning about what each of us do, and having a good time doing so. She had heard of the word homeopathy, she said. And as we were talking, she realized that she really did not know what homeopathy was, and now she had a better understanding of it.

She said, homeopathy is like giving someone the same pattern of them.

pattern 3Yes, I said, what a wonderful way of saying it – the same pattern.

The Same Pattern

It is giving the same pattern of what the person is experiencing – in their illness, in their problem, in their stuckness. Giving the homeopathic remedy that is the same pattern, the similar to that of the person. This is like cures like or The Law of Similars.

Very simply, if someone is having difficulty sleeping, is an insomniac, and is very wound up at night, they may do well with the homeopathic remedy Coffea crudum. Coffea crudum is made from the coffee plant. And if someone who has allergies or a cold with stinging, burning sensations in their eyes, and a lot of tearing from their eyes and their nose, they may do well with the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa. Allium cepa is made from the onion. These are two simple examples of like cures like. Giving the same pattern, giving the same pattern of what the person’s suffering is like. Actually that is what homeopathy means, similar suffering.

What Is The Pattern

As a homeopath, I hear what the problem is, what the suffering is for the person. It is not just the symptoms. Symptoms are signs or the manifestations of the deeper problem. I am listening, observing, witnessing, the deeper problem, getting to know what the person’s pattern is. And then giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy. Giving the same pattern, as my new friend said. This similar homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing abilities, pushing them them through were they are stuck. And lessening and quieting down the pattern.

The pattern can be doing the same thing over and over again, having the same reaction to things, having the same physical flare up. Going round and round. I sometimes experience my own going round and round, and that is why years ago, I sought out homeopathic care. I continue to see my homeopath when needed. I do not treat myself. Homeopathy helps to quiet down and lessen my pattern, my round and round.

Healing Your Pattern With Homeopathy

What is your pattern? Or a loved ones pattern? I would be happy to talk to you further on how homeopathy can quiet down your pattern, your round and round. Either contact me here through the blog or through my website  www.homeopathytoheal.com   I have a complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

Antibioics Not Healing Ear Infections, Sinusitis, and Allergies – Homeopathy Heals

Over the past week, several people have mentioned to me that they, or their child, are suffering either with chronic ear infections, chronic sinusitis, or allergies. Antibiotics has been the form of treatment that most of them have been using, and actually, many courses of antibiotics have been prescribed, lasting 3 months, 8 months or longer. And the person is not feeling better. The symptoms may have subsided, for a time, but they have returned. There has been no healing.

I believe that people want to feel better, and parents want their child to feel better. When someone has gone through several courses of antibiotics, and there has been no healing, it is time to look to homeopathy for a deep healing. Actually, I want to say, come to homeopathy, first.

Coming To Homeopathy

The homeopath will want to know how the person is experiencing what is bothering them – the discomfort, the pain, the  discharges, the emotional state, the dreams, the fears, how what bothers them affects them, when it started, how often does it come up, what is the problem in having this and more. Through listening, observation, asking some questions, and talking to the parents if it is a child, information is gathered that is specific to this person. This gives the homeopath an understanding of how the ear infection, the sinusitis or the allergy is for this person.                                                                 One-size-does-not-fit-all 2

The homeopathic remedy that is given fits this person, fits YOU  (Like Cures Like), and is healing for YOU. It is not a homeopathic remedy for the ear infection, sinusitis, or allergy. It is not a one size fits all treatment, which is common in western medicine. It is a healing.

I am happy to talk more if you or a loved one is experiencing an ongoing ear infection, sinusitis or allergy. Either contact me here on the blog post or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

What a Homeopath Does – Aphorism # 3 of the The Organon

What does a homeopath do?

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the German physician who developed homeopathy describes what a homeopath does in Aphorism #3 of THE ORGANON. (The picture included here is of Wenda Brewster O’Reilly’s translation of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s THE ORGANON.)

Aphorism #3                                                                                             the organon

“To be a genuine practitioner of the medical art, a physician must:

1. clearly realize what is to be cured in diseases, that is, in each single case of disease (discernment of the disease, indicator),

2. clearly realize what is curative in medicines, that is, in each particular medicine (knowledge of medicinal powers),

3. be aware of how to adapt what is curative in medicines to what he has discerned to be undoubtedly disease in the patient, according to clear principles.”

What Does A Homeopath Do?

The homeopath sees, understands, observes, listens, witnesses the patient’s suffering. Giving space for the patient. From this, the homeopath knows what the suffering is and what needs to be cured in the patient. This is “discernment of the disease powers”.

The homeopath knows the homeopathic medicines. Knows their curative and healing actions. This is “knowledge of medicinal powers”.

With knowing and understanding both the suffering of the patient and the homeopathic medicines, the homeopath matches a homeopathic medicine to that of the suffering of the patient. The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like or the Law of Similars. Homeopathy means similar (homeo) suffering (pathy). This is “according to clear principles”.

Homeopathy is Healing

Each person is seen as the unique individual they are. The homeopath is witnessing the patient’s symptoms, their complaints and their suffering; understanding what their experience of the suffering is for them; and giving the homeopathic medicine that is similar to this.

Homeopathy is simple. Homeopathy is elegant. Homeopathy is healing.

I am always happy to speak with anyone about their suffering and how the homeopathic medicine that is similar to their suffering will be healing for them. Please contact me here on this blog by leaving a comment, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com where you email or call me. I offer a 15+ minute complimentary Get Acquainted Phone Call.

Measles: Homeopathy Helps

We have been hearing a lot about measles in the news. What we having been hearing has been about whether people have been vaccinated or not vaccinated for measles. I don’t want to go into this topic in this blog 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.

In this blog I want to talk about measles, and how homeopathy can be helpful if someone is not moving through it well. 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 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:

measles

  • Fever of 102 – 104 Fahrenheit
  • Watery eyes – eyes inflamed
  • 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 2 – 3 rd day. Tiny, white spots in inner lining of mouth, called Koplik’s Spots.
  • On 4th or 5th day, itchy red, rash will appear. Large, flat blotches, they may run into each other. Start on 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 similar homeopathic remedy. This is Like Cures Like or the Law of Similars. 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
  • 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.
