An Emotional Event In Our Life Can Bring On Symptoms

An emotional event is a trauma. I have written about physical traumas, and how homeopathy can be helpful after an accident, injury, surgery, fall, dental work. Homeopathy is also helpful after emotional traumas.

An emotional trauma could be a loss, an abuse, a bullying, a fear, a regret, a feeling of shame, a feeling of guilt, a cookie heartfeeling of not carrying out what they believe is their responsibility, a feeling that they need to be perfect, to name a few. A person may develop some physical symptoms after experiencing an emotional upset or scare. Sometimes these emotional upsets are ongoing, and sometimes it is a one time occurrence.

Some of the physical symptoms can be stomachaches, headaches, nausea, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, menstrual changes, skin eruptions, obsessive behaviors, phobias, fears, anxiety, depression, nightmares, sore throats, breathing difficulties, earaches, colds, flus, autoimmune disorders, and more.

Two People

One night, when my youngest son was about a year old, there was a loud clap of thunder. It sounded as if it was right outside our window. He started to cry. I was holding him and comforting him. He was crying and was scared from this loud noise. A week later, he developed a cold and a fever. I remembered back to the fright that he had experienced from the thunder. I gave him a homeopathic remedy which helped with his cold, the fever and the fright. The loud thunder was so frightening to him. After being so afraid, he become sick with a cold and a fever. This was the emotional event.

A patient lost a very close family member. She was able to function, to work, and to live her life to a point. She expressed that a times she no longer wanted to live. She was in a lot of pain. She told her story of what had happened, filled with so many emotions. Physically, she was experiencing stomach pains, wanting to eat a lot, having headaches, and feeling paralyzed. She felt hopeless. A homeopathic remedy was given to address the emotions and the physical symptoms she was experiencing.

I often ask my patients when I meet with them, did anything happen right before you became sick or started experiencing these symptoms? I ask this question not just when someone has an acute illness like a cold or fever, but also when someone as chronic health issues that they have been experiencing for awhile. Sometimes I don’t need to ask the question, people just tell me what happened to them. 

The patient and I together are witnessing the pieces that make up the whole of them, the totality of them at this time. Totalities can change. The emotional state is a piece, a part of the totality. The homeopathic remedy that is similar to this totality is given to assist the person in their healing.

If I can be of help homeopathically to you or a loved one, please contact me here or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I offer a complimentary Get Acquainted Call to see if this is a fit for you. If you know of anyone who may be interested in this information, I would appreciate you passing it on to them.

What Is Bothering You?

When I first sit down with a patient at the initial consultation, I ask “what is bothering you?”, “Why are you here?” As the consultation progresses, I may ask at some point, “from all of what you have said, what is bothering you the most?” And the patient tells me more about this. It is often our door in to finding out about the wholeness of this person.

What Is Bothering The Person

What is bothering the person is very individual, very indicative about the person, and often a manifestation of the root cause.  Here are a few of what patients have said to me that is bothering them:

  • My nose is running all the time. I have to wipe it. It is annoying.
  • It feels as if the food is rotting in my stomach.
  • I am so anxious.
  • I have difficulty breathing.
  • My younger sister is the boss of me.
  • My neck hurts all the time.
  • I feel as thought there is dripping in my ear.
  • The skin eruption on my face doesn’t go away.
  • There are bumps on my skin.
  • I am not functioning like I did before the accident.
  • I am feeling so weak after having the flu.
  • I am having these persistent thoughts that scare me.
  • It upsets me so much how other people treat animals and older people.
  • Loud sounds are uncomfortable to me. (A child runs to his mother when hearing loud sounds.)

You can see how varied it is. And there often is no name to it, nor a name of an illness. It is a sensation, a feeling, a fear, a physical symptom, a thought, a response, a reaction.

I find it very interesting that what can bother one person, such as a skin eruption, may not be bothering another person who also has skin eruptions. This shows me over and over again how individual we all are. My job always, is to see, observe, learn about this person in front of me, and how they experience what bothers them, and how they experience their life. I am learning about the world they live in.

The Totality

The totality is like this photograph. What is bothering the person is the drop in the drop of waterwater. The ripples from this drop are: the other symptoms the person may be experiencing; how what bothers the person affects them; how the person perceives things that happen to them; their fears; their dreams; the language they use to express themselves; the gestures they make; their history and more. The ripples and the drop are the totality of the person.

What Is Bothering You?

When does what is bothering someone become too much, and that they then want help?

A lot of us live with or through what is bothering us. We accept it, even though it bothers us and affects our lives. Perhaps it is when the pain is too much – the physical, the emotional or the mental pain. Perhaps, it is when we don’t like what is happening or how we feel. Perhaps, it is when we don’t want to feel this way anymore. Perhaps, it is when we want to be better, really better. And perhaps, it is when we see how important it is to take care of ourselves.

I have found that people come to homeopathy because something has been bothering them for awhile. They may have gone to other health practitioners, including western medicine, and have felt that they are not better. This is often when they come to homeopathy.

What is bothering you?

Our Triggers

Events happen in our lives. Events that are personal, political, and global. These events may trigger emotions, feelings, thoughts, behaviors, symptoms, physical states, and memories. Our buttons have been pushed. It is natural that this happens.

As we experience this, we may in a way take a look at what is happening. How do we feel? What are our responses, and what are we responding to? Are we reacting to the present or to the past? Does this event remind us of something or someone that we know? What actions or no actions do we take?

We may be just affected for a brief time, and then feel better. Or the affect may linger, and balls-knocking-into-ballswe are not able to move forward at all. We are stuck, with whatever has been triggered within us, affecting us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This is a good time to take care of ourselves.

In My Practice

As a patient tells me what is bothering them, often a physical complaint, I hear about events and relationships that have happened to them in their life. They may be talking about present or post relationships or events. No matter when this occurred in time, it still is affecting them, and triggering them.

As the person is talking and describing their experience, specific words and language are used, often accompanied with hand gestures. The person’s words/language/hand gestures represent what and where their sensitivity lies, and how they experience their world. In a way I am learning the person’s language, which helps me to better understand their world, how they experience what happens to them, and what it is that bothers them about their symptoms.

Two Women

One woman is experiencing pains in her neck and shoulder. The pains are almost all the time. She accepts the pains, and has experienced them most of her life. She talks about an old relationship. In some ways this relationship is still present because of her connection to this person through other people. Recently there has been more of a connection with this person. This has been a trigger. What she says and shows helps guide me as a homeopath in selecting the homeopathic remedy that will be healing for her. The homeopathic remedy will be for her emotional state, and for the neck and shoulder pains she experiences. Homeopathy treats the whole person.

Another woman has a flare up of an abscess in scar tissue. This seems to happen when she is feeling angry at others, at herself, and/or what happens in her life. She takes it out on herself, feeling very angry about herself and her life. Often some event or interaction will happen, triggering something within her, and then manifesting in both emotional (anger) and physical (the abscess) symptoms. Since using the homeopathic remedy that is similar to her, she has been noticing these triggers when they balance-15712__180occur, and has become much more in touch with her feelings and responses. She has become more proactive in her self care. The flare ups in the scar tissue are becoming less severe, and are taking less time to heal. Homeopathy is stimulating a deep healing within her.

Our Triggers

When an event occurs in our life, it may be a trigger to past or present relationships, circumstances, events, behaviors, feelings and more. (I think for some people this past election may have been a trigger for some people.) When we do experience a trigger, it is a good time to help ourselves. The affects we are experiencing at this time are more on the surface and more prominent, and are therefore more readily expressed and available, making it a good time to start a healing process.
