We Each Have Our Own Sensitivity

Sensitivity.

We all have our own sensitivity. Why does something bother one person, but the very same thing doesn’t bother another person?  I often give the example of a skin eruption on someone’s hand. For one person, it bothers them so much to the point that they will seek out any and all kinds of treatment to help. Another person, hardly notices it, or if they do, it doesn’t bother them. They live with it. One person is bothered by it, the other is not. One is sensitive about it, the other is not.

Different Sensitivities

Some sensitivities that people may experience are:                                                                                                                          dandalion

  • to noise, to crowds, to fabrics, to foods, to temperatures, to smells, to certain types of people, to violence, to blood, to over stimulation, to under stimulation, to pain, to pressure, to situations, to traveling, to dirt, to germs, and more.

Parts of the body or the functioning of parts of the body that may be more sensitive in someone are:

  • the stomach – digestive issues, the head – migraines, frequent colds, sore throats, respiratory issues, menstrual issues, hormonal issues – in both women and men, skin eruptions, anxiousness, depression/melancholy, fears and phobias, muscular aches and pains, sleep issues, nightmares, eating issues, and more.

Hearing The Sensitivity – A Case of A Boy

The sensitivity is what I hear when someone comes to see me for homeopathy. I hear what bothers the person. I hear how they experience their sensitivity. I hear how they live with the sensitivity, either compensating, making it go away, accepting it, or avoiding it. I hear how the sensitivity affects their life.

I want to tell you about a boy whose parents brought him in for homeopathic care. He was 20 months old at the time. The boy was experiencing nasal congestion, fevers, and possible ear infections, in which several courses of antibiotics had been given. The antibiotics had helped for four weeks, then the congestion, the fevers, the discomfort in the ear returned. He went through this cycle for several months.

As I spoke to the parents and observed the boy, I saw that he had a sensitivity to noise and sounds. His mother told me that when a sound was loud, or if he heard a far off sound, such as an airplane, actually hearing it before she did, he would run to her. She thought that the sounds were scary or frightening to him. He was not saying how he experienced the sounds through words, but showing through his behaviors, reactions, and responses to the sounds. There was a sensitivity to sound. I wondered if the sounds felt uncomfortable or painful to him in some way. Whatever it was, the sounds and noises were too much for him. I really didn’t know how the sounds specifically affected him, but they bothered him greatly, in some way.

He would make the sounds of trucks, imitating the noises that trucks make as they move, back up, carry things, and push materials. To me, this also showed how sensitive he was to sound. He heard things well, and could reproduce the sounds that he heard.

He has done well with the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what he was experiencing. He hasn’t needed to have any more antibiotics. He has had a few fevers and nasal congestion, but has been able to move through them without any lingering problems. I would be curious to know how his sensitivity to sound and noises are. I would think that he may have less of a sensitivity to them.

Healing With Homeopathy

The sensitivity to sounds is not why the boy’s parents brought him in for homeopathic care. But this sensitivity was very characteristic of him as an individual person, and very much part of him. Homeopathy looks at, and focuses on the whole person. We all of our own sensitivity, and sensitive areas in our body. This is where we may experience symptoms, discomfort, or flare ups when we are experience situations that are stressful physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. With homeopathic care, the sensitivity becomes less and quiets down.

What is your sensitivity? I invite you to contact me either here through the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com  and set up a Get Acquainted Call. I do work with people who don’t live near me using Skype.

I Am Feeling SO Anxious – Homeopathy Heals

anxious face

 ANXIETY – ANXIOUSNESS

 We all experience anxiety, sometime. It is part of life. But when it is present most of the time, or extremely intense, it can get to the point that it restricts and limits how we live our lives. We may use medication, meditation, food, deep breathing, excessive alcohol or drug use, to help calm or distract ourselves. All these may help, at the time, to a point, but they don’t really heal what is going on inside of us.

Some of what we are anxious about could be:

  • Performance and how we appear to others – stage fright, presentation, interviews.
  • Family members -their health, their financial situation, their safety
  • Ourselves – marital status, finances, career, education, success, health, family, safety, aging, moving, having a new baby, becoming a father or mother, loss of a loved one.
  • Travel – by air,  going to another country, eating different kinds of food.

Some ways that anxiety could be expressed:

  • Physical symptoms -heart palpitations, butterflies in stomach, dry mouth, sweaty palms, diarrhea, antsy, vomiting, insomnia, digestive issues.
  • Emotional and mental symptoms – persistent thoughts, paralyzing fears, anticipating – what ifs, worries, phobias, nightmares.

No two anxieties are really alike. There could be common experiences, symptoms and reactions, some of which I have mentioned above, but underneath, deep down, each person experiences their anxieties uniquely to them. This is how homeopathy approaches any ill state, by finding out through observation, listening, uncovering what the ill state is like for this person.

I want to tell you about a woman who was extremely anxious, and how homeopathy helped her. She was very concerned about her family and their safety to the point that her teenage children could not be left alone in the house unless she was there, or another adult was in the house with them. This may be appropriate for young children, but not needed for teenagers. She was afraid that someone would break into the house. And if she had a driving trip coming up, and she was the driver, she was very anxious that she would possibly lose control of the car. This anxiousness and anticipation would start several weeks before the trip with her having nightmares. After taking the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what she was experiencing, her anxiety lessened. She was able to leave her teenagers alone in the house, her driving trips become uneventful, and she was no longer anxious before the trip.

Homeopathy heals at the core or root of where the anxiety is coming from. With this deep healing, the other symptoms – physical, emotional and mental – also become less and are healed.

If you see yourself a little bit in this blog post, perhaps it is time to see how homeopathy can be of help to you.
