What is this LIKE CURES LIKE That I keep Writing About?

What is this Like Cures Like or Law of Similars, that I keep writing about? What is this giving the similar to what the patient is experiencing in the form of a homeopathic remedy?

Onion

Think how it feels when you are cutting, peeling, or slicing an onion. Your eyes start to tear, to burn and to sting. You wipe or rub your eyes, sometimes using a cloth, trying to get out whatever is in them, if there is anything. Your nose may also start to run or onion 2drip. Other people may say you are crying. You say you are crying. It doesn’t feel like it does when you are crying. Yes, there are tears, but this is not how you feel when you cry. Your eyes don’t usually sting or burn when you are crying.

If someone is experiencing these kinds of symptoms that I described above when they have a cold or an allergy, the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa may be helpful for them. Allium cepa is made from the red onion.

It doesn’t matter if it is a cold or an allergy. It is the symptoms of the burning, the stinging, the tearing, the runny eyes and nose that are guiding the homeopath to the homeopathic remedy. In this case, guiding them to Allium cepa. The name, whether it is a cold or allergy, doesn’t mean anything. It is the symptoms that are the guide.

The example of peeling an onion is used very often to explain Like Cures Like.

Symptoms

The symptoms are the pieces of the total picture of the person. Homeopaths use the symptoms as a guide to what homeopathic remedy is needed for the person; matching the homeopathic remedy to the symptoms that make up the totality of the person. This is Like Cures Like. You can see why the homeopath needs to know a lot about each person, so the similar, the similar homeopathic remedy, can be given.

The symptoms are the way the vital force, the immune system, the chi, of the person is trying to heal itself. Giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy assists in the person’s healing process.

When I meet with a patient, I am finding out about them, about their symptoms. This can be for any health issue that a person comes to homeopathy for – such as menstrual difficulties, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, skin eruptions, fears, headaches, allergies, sore throats, ear infections, autoimmune issues, to list just a few. And then giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy, Like Cures Like.

Coronavirus

Over a year ago, I wrote several blogs on how homeopathy can be helpful with the coronavirus. I want to mention this again. Homeopathy is helpful: 

  • if someone comes down with the coronavirus
  • is having “long haul”, lingering types of symptoms
  • has a “breakthrough” infections
  • has had a vaccine and is experiencing side effects from it, soon after or continuing over a period of time.

Homeopaths all over the world are helping people using homeopathic remedies that are similar to what the person is experiencing, in regards to the coronavirus. Again, this is Like Cures Like.

We don’t hear about how homeopathy is helpful in mainstream news. I want you to know that there are ways to help yourself and your family. And homeopathy can be used along with other healing modality treatments.

Homeopathy To Heal

I invite you to contact me to find out how homeopathy can be part of your healing process. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call to see if this is fit for you. Either contact me here through my blog, or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

I Have This _____? Can Homeopathy Help Me?

Recently, I was asked if homeopathy could help with plantar fasciitis. She said since she hadn’t read about it on my website, she wondered if homeopathy could help.

I said yes.

I was very glad she had asked about this. I thought perhaps other people may have had the same thought that homeopathy could not help them if they hadn’t read anything written about it in my information, website, blog, and newsletter. Since not seeing the name of it, they may have thought that homeopathy could not help them.

We often need to read specifically what we “have” written about, or to hear a story of someone like us using a particular healing modality before we may consider it. For example to know if homeopathy has helped someone with plantar fasciitis, then someone may look into homeopathy.

Homeopathy focuses on how the individual experiences what is bothering them. When a homeopath meets with a puzzle-14451_960_720person the general and usual symptoms of what is bothering is heard, such as with plantar fasciitis, AND, other symptoms of the individual are heard too. These symptoms can be about their emotional state, other physical symptoms they experience, mental functioning, sleep, dreams, fears and more. All of this, these pieces, are taken together to make up the totality of the person. The totality is what is focused on to heal. The plantar fasciitis is one of the pieces, or several of them.

The given homeopathic remedy is similar to this totality. The main principle of homeopathy is LIKE CURES LIKE, or The Law of Similars. The homeopathic remedy that is given is for the totality of the person, including the plantar fasciitis. This could be said for any “this is what I have”, name of a disease or syndrome that someone is experiencing, autoimmune diseases included. The “have” is a piece of the total picture. 

I find that a lot of people have been give a name to what is bothering them. They may be having treatment for it, but are not feeling better. At this point, they may be looking for other healing modalities. That is why they ask me, “I have this __________________,  can homeopathy help me?”

If there is a health issue you or a loved one are experiencing and you haven’t seen anything written about it in my information, I invite you to contact me. Let’s talk. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call or Zoom meeting to see if homeopathy is something you would want to pursue. I see people local to and outside of the San Diego area, and people of all ages, babies to older adults. You can contact me here, or on my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

Homeopathy Is A Living Medicine

A living medicine.

I talk to myself quite a bit. Recently I said to myself that homeopathy is a living medicine.  I was thinking about how people use homeopathy, and this thought – homeopathy is a living medicine – came to me.

What I mean about a living medicine actually has several aspects.

First – the substances that homeopathic remedies are made from are living. Homeopathic remedies are made from plants, metals and minerals (the period table), animals (animals are not killed to make homeopathic remedies), and what is called imponderables, such as sunlight and moonlight. All of these substances – plants, minerals and metals, animals, imponderables – are alive in some way. They are and/or have energy.

Second – the energy part. The fact that these substances are energy makes them alive. Energy moves, changes, adapts, brush-96240_960_720grows, affects, and reproduces. All of these can be descriptions of being alive.

Third – relating to a living being, a person or an animal (homeopathy is very helpful for animals). The individual. How the person is. How they experience what bothers them. I think this is really what triggered my thought about homeopathy being a living medicine. The individual, what they are expressing through their symptoms, their state, is their aliveness. This is what we want to address. As a homeopath, this is what I want to know, witnessing this with the patient.

The main principle of homeopathy is Like Cures Like. It is giving the similar to what the person is experiencing in the form of the homeopathic remedy. The aliveness of what the person is experiencing, with the aliveness of the  homeopathic remedy that is similar to them. Like cures like. Living/aliveness cures living/aliveness

Fourth – the aliveness. The living. The ability to change. Looking at the individual. This being. Their uniqueness. Not a one size fits all. This is the aliveness. And possibly, healing is alive too. It is change.

If I can be of help to you or a loved one, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopthytoheal.com.  I offer a complimentary 15 minute Get Acquainted Call to see if homeopathy is something you want to pursue at this time.

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.

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.

 *******

For anyone in the San Diego area who has always wondered about Homeopathy — what it is, how it works, how it can help you be healthier and happier –On Monday, June 27, 2016, I will be at The Healthy Spirit (629 3rd Ave, Suite B, Chula Vista, CA 91910).

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.

Healing With Homeopathy

Is there something that is itching you? Is there something on your skin that bothers you? I invite you to contact me, to see how homeopathy can be of help to you . You can contact me here, on this blog, or on my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I have a 15 complimentary Get Acquainted Call.

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.
