More About Arnica Montana – A Personal Story

Arnica Montana is often the first homeopathic remedy that someone uses, introducing them to homeopathy.  Moms use the remedy a lot with their children. I have written about the use of Arnica Montana for first aid situations, such as traumas, falls, surgeries, and injuries in several of my blog posts. Here is one of those posts.

Each homeopathic remedy is not just for one health condition. The thinking that I have this _____________________, then I need this homeopathic remedy, is not how homeopathy works. I know we do so that with Arnica, using it when there is an injury, as I wrote above, but Arnica can be used, like other  homeopathic remedies, for not just one thing.

Homeopathic remedies have what we call a “picture”, which is a description of the remedy. As a homeopath, I am matching the picture of the person to the picture of a homeopathic remedy. This is Like Cures Like, the main principle of homeopathy – the Law of Similars.

A Personal Story

My left arm started to be very painful. I have had something like this before. I call it a “cold” in my arm.  It hurt in several different places on my arm – around the elbow, the upper arm, the shoulder, the shoulder blade and even down to the fingers. It was a sore, bruised feeling. It hurt almost all the time, and more so when I moved the arm, and even when I moved my right arm, my left arm would hurt. (We are connected.)  At night, getting into a comfortable position took time. I babied the arm, and wore clothes that were easy to put on and didn’t need help in snapping or zipping.

I gave myself the homeopathic remedy Bryonia at first. It didn’t seem to help. Then I thought, I am feeling bruised and sore. So bruised. I didn’t injure the arm, nor was there any kind of an accident. But there was this sore and bruised feeling. So I took the homeopathic remedy Arnica. I dissolved three 30C pellets of Arnica in water, and took  arnica lying downseveral doses of it (teaspoonfuls), over a period of time. A day or so later, I took Arnica 200C potency, and really felt a change after that, a bettering – less sore and bruised. The next morning, I noticed I was starting to use my arm more, still being careful with it. And the healing has continued.

When I had talked with a friend about my arm, she asked me if I had thought about getting a massage. I immediately said, “I don’t want to be touched”. At first I thought, that is not true, because I am touching my arm at times, feeling the points where it hurts, and slowly, gently pressing on them and massaging them.

I thought about what I had said, that I don’t want to be touched. It was true. I didn’t want my arm to be touched. I didn’t want anyone to touch it. And I was being so very, very careful with my arm, not letting anything touch it.

The “I don’t want to be touched” is a keynote, a main characteristic, of the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana, along with the sore and bruised feelings. The person will say, I am fine, but they don’t want to be touched, because they are not fine. And this is what I was saying. It was so interesting to me that I said that.

I didn’t have an injury, but as I am writing this, I remember that I was noticing that I was having very different dreams than I usually have. In these dreams I had the feeling of being threatened and of the possibility of being hurt. I found I was escaping from a lot of situations that could be dangerous. Perhaps in some ways, I had felt injured, maybe not physically, but something may have happened in my life, maybe on an emotional level, and I was feeling injured. This was being expressed through my dreams and through the physical sensations of soreness and bruising I was experiencing.

Homeopathy To Heal

To come to the homeopathic remedy that is needed, it is ALWAYS finding out how the person is feeling, not that they have __________________. How the person is feeling can manifest in many areas. Some of these are: physical symptoms, dreams, fears, emotional states, mental functioning, and spiritual questioning. All of this information is what guides the homeopath in selecting the homeopathic remedy that fits the person, that is similar to the person, and helps in their healing.

A Personal Post – I Love Homeopathy

This is a personal post.

I love homeopathy.

I get discouraged at times. Homeopathy is challenging. My job is to understand the suffering of the patient, and then match it with the similar, in the form of a homeopathic remedy. It is LIKE CURES LIKE (Law of Similars). This is so, whether in a first aid situation (an insect bite), an acute condition (an ear infection), or a chronic condition (reactions to vaccines or an injury, chronic pain and fatigue, anxiety and other ongoing, chronic health issues.)

In my practice, I continually see how homeopathy helps people in their health, and that they are doing and feeling better. When I see this happen, it brings me back to the thought that there is such a need for homeopathy. I say to myself at this time, I love homeopathy! I love that I practice homeopathy. I love that homeopathy is available to people. I love that I can contribute to people’s health. And I love learning more about homeopathy.

Thank You

A big thank you to all of you who read this post, and posts that I have written in the past. It shows me that you are wanting, and are open to having choices for your health care, and that you are open to homeopathy.

If you want to know more about homeopathy, Amy Lansky wrote a wonderful book titled THE IMPOSSIBLE CURE.

I Invite You, You May Get A YES

At the end of each of my blogs, I always write – I would be happy to talk with you about how homeopathy can be of help to you. I invite you, I encourage you to contact me.

Potential Patients

I have patients say to me that they have mentioned homeopathy to a family member or a friend. Other motther offeringhealth practitioners that I know, also have told me that they have mentioned homeopathy to some of their patients. My response always is please let the person know that I would be happy to talk with them.

What I know of some of these potential patients:

  • A young woman who has had an averse reaction to the to Gardasil vaccine (HPV).
  • A woman who experiences constant pain.
  • A boy who is having difficulty in school.
  • A woman who experiences vertigo.
  • A man who is having severe headaches, which is affecting his vision.
  • A young girl who has eczema on her hands.
  • A baby who is having digestive issues – after he eats, he spits up and is in constant pain.
  • A woman who is having hot flashes that are affecting her sleep.
  • An older woman who is looking for natural ways to help her in her health.
  • A woman who is having menstrual issues.
  • A woman who experiences episodes of depression.
  • A young women who feels overly anxious and emotional. (There is nothing wrong with feeling emotional, but she is not liking it.)

The list could go on. And you can see it is people of all ages, and for all different kinds of health concerns.

I know that some of these people have done other healing modalities, western medicine included. They may be taking a prescribed medication, which is alleviating or palliating their symptoms, but not necessarily healing. What is bothering them still continues to bother them. (Homeopathy can be used along with western medications.)

Homeopathy 

In the consultation, the homeopath listens, observes, and witnesses what is bothering the person, what their suffering is like. A homeopathic remedy is given that is similar to the person’s suffering. The word homeopathy means “similar suffering”. (The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like.)

The homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process, their immune system, and heals at the core, at the source, of where the symptoms, the discomfort, and the pain come from. Homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances, are non-toxic and gentle in their healing.

I Invite You

Over the last year, I have entered several juried art shows. I was accepted into a few of the  bird flyingshows, and some I was not accepted into. My thinking was: enter the shows I was interested in. If I didn’t enter them, it would be a definite NO. If I did enter them, it could be a YES! I would not get a YES unless I moved forward and took action. So I did.

I invite you to take action and to find out about how homeopathy can be healing for you or a loved one. See if it can be a YES for you. You don’t know unless you do it, otherwise, it is a definite NO, and you may just continue to not feel well.

Either contact me through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com  and let’s talk to see how homeopathy may help you. I do work with patients who are not local to the San Diego area by using Skype.

 *******

A Woman’s Cycle

Over the years, I have seen women of all ages – young girls to women in their 80’s – for various health concerns. I have observed that for a lot of these women, the complaint that brought them in for homeopathic care, was related to their cycle in some way. For instance:

  • Their complaint was worse during their menstrual cycle.
  • Their complaint began when they started or ended having a menstrual period – puberty or menopause. (Very often, I have heard from a woman that her complaint started when she was going through puberty.)
  • Their complaint was in response to using birth control medication. (Birth control changes the hormonal balance in a woman’s body.)
  • Their complaint may be exasperated during pregnancy.

From this, I observed that a woman’s cycle – her monthly cycle, the hormonal changes she young womanexperiences, the cycle of reproduction – is very important, and very much part of her case when having homeopathic care. In this cycle, there are changes that occur to her body, to her reproductive life, to her emotional life, and to her mental life. These responses and changes are all important.

Some Of The Women I have Seen

1. A woman in her 20’s, who experienced severe cramping during her menstrual cycle. She had considered using birth control medication to ease the pain and the discomfort. But she had decided to use homeopathy instead.

2. A woman who had used birth control medication since her teenage years, decided not to use it anymore. After stopping the birth control, a skin eruption developed in her groin area, which was extremely uncomfortable. Over a year or two, she saw several different doctors of different specialties for help. The treatments that were given did not help in the long run. She decided to seek out homeopathic care. With a healing from homeopathy, the skin eruptions subsided and disappeared.

3. A woman who was planning to have another child, came to homeopathy for help for a particular on going health concern. She was taking daily medication for this concern, but did not want to increase the medication in a future pregnancy, as she had had to do in an earlier pregnancy. With homeopathy, the remedy not only helped with the health concern, but also helped with morning sickness, and when she became ill during the pregnancy, such as with a cold, cough and flu symptoms.

4. A woman in her early 50’s was experiencing hot flashes at night and during the day. She would wake frequently two womenduring the night, which affected how she felt during the day – a feeling of not been rested. She also felt very emotional and would easily come to tears. This would happen often at work. Her menstrual cycle was becoming less regular. Homeopathy helped with the hot flashes. She felt more rested and was calmer emotionally.

5. A woman who experienced vaginal dryness and pain while having sexual relations with her husband came for homeopathic treatment. She was very unhappy in her marriage. With the healing from the homeopathic remedy that was similar to her (Like Cures Like), she was able to make changes in her life that led to a more fulfilling life.

6. An older woman who was experiencing a lot of fatigue, found it difficult to do her daily activities. With the homeopathy remedy that fit her, her energy returned.

7. A woman who experienced headaches very frequently, noticed that the headaches were worse right before she started her period. At these times, she became quite incapacitated, making it difficult to take care of her children. With homeopathy, the headaches decreased, and she was able to be fully involved with her families activities.

8. A woman had started homeopathic care, from which she felt calmer and was better able to manage her life and her business. She became pregnant soon afterwards. The homeopathic remedy continued to help her through her pregnancy, especially when she was experiencing morning sickness.

Homeopathy To Heal

Homeopathy is truly a holistic form of medicine. A woman’s cycle is a very important part of her whole being. Homeopathy is helpful for a woman at whatever age she is, and for whatever part of the cycle she may be experiencing some difficulties – puberty, menstrual issues, fertility issues, pregnancy, during the birth, postpartum, menopause, and her life after that.

If you, or a woman that you love, are experiencing an ongoing health concern, I invite you to contact me, to see how homeopathy can be of help to you, or to her. Either contact me here on this blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

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.

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.

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.
