Homeopathy Is A Wonderful Healing Modality – And You

I want to talk to you about homeopathy, and you.

Homeopathy is a wonderful healing modality. It is helpful for so many health concerns people experience today, from first aid, like burns, sprains, falls and dental procedures; to acute concerns like colds/flus, coughs, sore throats and impacted teeth; to chronic/ongoing conditions like gull in flightdigestive issues, headaches, swollen glands and a cancer diagnosis. For a child who is having difficulty concentrating or is on the autism spectrum, to an older person who has had a heart attack. I can list and list health concerns of which homeopathy would be helpful, and for all ages.

And homeopathy is also helpful for other living beings in addition to human beings, such as your dog, cat or horse.

You Know…

I believe that you know:

What you want.

To be pain free, to have more energy, to have better digestion, to  focus better, to have easier periods, for your child to have a conversation with you.

What is bothering you.

Pain, anxiety, fatigue, emotional feelings, a skin eruption.

What is preventing you from being better.

A mindset, a trauma or physical ailment that you really have not healed from yet, an ongoing stress situation, an exposure to environmental toxins. 

And, what you are looking for in terms of helping yourself in your health.

To feel better using more natural forms of healing that really promote a healing, and not a palliation, by accessing the body’s wonderful healing ability.

Homeopathy

You may be wanting to know specifically what homeopathy can do to help you in your health, to help you in what you do know about yourself.  I may have addressed that in previous posts, if I haven’t, I invite you to contact me and let’s see about you.

I can be contacted through this blog post or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

My Skin Always Bothers Me

I have had several patients come in for homeopathic care recently who are experiencing a skin eruption. For one, it is eczema, which they have experienced all of their life. For another it is vitiligo (leucoderma), a condition where white patches appear on the skin, especially after the skin has been bruised or scratched. Another person has bumps and rashes on the skin. And another has Hand, Foot and Mouth disease (Coxsackie Virus).

These patients are of all ages, ranging from young children to older adults. 3-handsAll of them have experienced an ongoing skin discomfort, for either a short time or for a good part of their lives.

Wanting To Get Relief

Most of the time, a skin eruption is very uncomfortable in some way. It is very itchy. It can be red and inflamed. It may ooze and/or bleed. It is painful. The person wants to scratch it, constantly. He may not want others to see it, feeling very embarrassed about it. And scarring may occur, affecting the texture/smoothness and tone of the skin. It seems to be ongoing, with some relief sometimes, but it is always there in some way.

People do many things to take care of their skin, wanting relief. They use creams, watch or change the foods they eat, try to monitor their stress levels, and keep the area as clean as possible. Cortisone creams are often proscribed. These creams may give relief, but they are not truly healing, and are in fact very suppressive. The skin may be better, but the person may develop other health issues, such as breathing difficulties or asthma, muscular pains, and other complaints.

(Suppression. The dictionary defines the verb suppress as “to put down by authority or force” and to “subdue”. And a suppressant is defined as “an agent (as a drug) that tends to suppress rather than eliminate something”.)

Healing The Whole Person

The skin eruption is not a separate issue; it is part of the whole picture. It is a reflection of a deeper systemic condition in the person. We hear the expression – “it is only skin deep”. That really is not true with skin issues; it is deeper than the skin. That is why using topical creams does not heal at the root core or cause of where the skin eruption is coming from. .

As each of the patients I mentioned above talked about having skin eruptions, I heard how it felt – itchy, burning, hot, and inflamed. I heard how they responded to the discomfort – wanting to rub it against something, scratching it till it bled. I heard what happened to the area – becoming infected, becoming a lighter skin tone once healed. I heard what made it better and what made it worse. As they told me these things, I was paying attention to the words and language they used, to the hand gestures and the body movements they made. They talked about other things bothering them as well. The young child wanted to be comforted more than usual. The school aged child wondered what his classmates thought if he made a mistake in class. The older person had a deep concern and desire to help other people. And more.

All of this – the skin, how they talked, how they responded to things happening in their life – are the pieces of the puzzle that fit together to make the whole picture of them. The given homeopathic remedy was similar and matched this wholeness, stimulating the person’s innate healing abilities.

If you have a skin issue that is always bothering you, I invite you to see how healing homeopathy can be for you. You can contact me here on the blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I would be happy to talk with you.

Calendula Cream – Soothing and Healing to the Skin

I often suggest to many of my patients and to my friends, to use calendula cream if they are experiencing a skin eruption, a rash, a cut that isn’t healing well, an open sore, a fungus on their foot, anything on the skin that is not healing well. This cream is helpful for the healing of an episiotomy or tear after childbirth. It is a wonderful healing cream. It is made from the marigold plant. It’s full name is Calendula officinalis. It has also been potentized and made into a homeopathic remedy. In this post, I am just talking about the cream.

I specifically suggest the calendula cream, Baby Face Cream made by Weleda. Weleda is a German company and makes many products. Don’t be put off by the name and think you marigold-calendula-creamhave to be a baby to use it, or have to just use it on your face. This product is pure, of good quality, and can be used anywhere on the body. It can be purchased at your local health food stores. It comes in an orangish/yellow 1.7 ounce tube.

When I suggest to use calendula cream to my patients, it is in conjunction with the homeopathic remedy being used, the one being given that is similar to what they are experiencing. The cream will help if the skin area is itchy, burning, or sore, and takes the place of other creams or ointments that can be very harsh. Being topical, the cream doesn’t necessarily heal deeply. The homeopathic remedy, which is taken orally, promotes a deep healing by stimulating the person’s own healing ability.

*******

If you have used this calendula cream, leave a comment below telling us about your experience. And if I can be of any help to you or your family regarding your health and homeopathy, please contact me here on this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I do work with patients via Skype who do not live in the San Diego area. Wishing you well.

Homeopathic Healing Before/During/After Pregnancy

In the community that I live in, I have been seeing more young families. Couples who have had their first child within the last two years, and now some of them are having their second child. It is fun to see these babies and families.

I am also seeing more women patients in my homeopathic practice who are pregnant and who have young children. Homeopathy is very helpful before, during, and after pregnancy. These days people are looking for safe, natural, non-toxic, and holistic healing forms of medicine for themselves, and for their families. Homeopathy fits this so well.

Having Homeopathic Treatment Before/During/After Pregnancy

When a pregnant mother has homeopathic treatment, she is helping herself as well as helping and strengthening the health of her unborn baby. And when a nursing mother is using homeopathy, the baby is also benefiting from this care. In a way, it is treating two people for the “price” of one. When the mother is healing and well, the baby will be well and healthy. Homeopathy is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

These are some of the health concerns that may bring a woman to homeopathy before, during, and after her pregnancy:

  • wanting to get pregnant/fertility issues
  • morning sickness
  • extreme fatigue
  • sleeping issues
  • chronic colds, coughs, flus
  • increased blood sugars
  • increase in blood pressure
  • skin eruptions – acne, rashes, eczema, psoriasis
  • urinary tract infections
  • emotional issues – fears, anxiousness, depression, grief, sadness
  • exasperation of an ongoing health issue  – allergies, asthma, headaches, migraines
  • postpartum depression
  • labor issues
  • recovery from vaginal births and caesarean sections
  • breastfeeding issues
  • health of the baby
  • an ongoing health concern that the mother experiences and may be receiving other treatment for. (Homeopathy works well along with allopathic/western medicine.)

It is important to receive prenatal care from a health practitioner – ob/gyn, midwife, nurse practitioner, osteopath, and/or others. Homeopathy can be used along with this care.

Two Women  

I had started to see one woman as a patient before she became pregnant, and have continued to see her throughout her pregnancy. The homeopathic care has helped with her morning sickness, extreme fatigue, heart flutterings, colds, and with what brought her originally in for homeopathy. She also sees an ob/gyn, a chiropractor and other health practitioners.

I have seen another woman off and on – before, during her pregnancy and after the baby was born. Homeopathy helped her with the original reason she came in for. It also helped her when she experienced morning sickness and wanted to increase her breast milk supply.

This includes fathers as well as mothers. I invite you to contact me here through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

It Is Always A Good Time To Use Homeopathy For Children – Babies, Young Children, Teenagers, Young Adults

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. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.

Why Is It A Good Time?

children playingIt 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.                                                                                                                             a-smile-333604_960_720

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 that parents have called me about that their child is experiencing (and adults experience these types of health concerns too):

  • ear aches and ear infections – being on course after course of antibiotics
  • 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
  • just not feeling well

Seeing The Individual Child

Homeopathy is a form of medicine that addresses the person as a whole being and as an individual. It is finding out what bothers the person, and how they experience what          youth-320987_960_720bothers them – uniquely to them.

For example, the child may have asthma. After hearing how the child experiences the asthma and how it affects them, along with hearing about the child’s emotional life, their fears, their dreams, what they like to do, and their health history, the homeopathic practitioner gives a homeopathic remedy that fits this child. Another child who also experiences asthma, would most likely need a different homeopathic remedy, a homeopathic remedy that fits them.

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the child, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits the child. This applies to a child who experiences behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.

Allergies – Homeopathy Heals

Allergies.

Many people experience allergies:

  • They experience sneezing, itchy nose and ears, eyes watering and tearing, nasal and  woman blowing nosesinus congestion, difficulty breathing, closing off of the windpipe, stomach aches, diarrhea, itchy skin, or skin eruptions.
  • The allergic reaction can be from dust, cat dander, pollen, foods (milk, nuts, peanuts, shellfish, strawberries), clothing, bees, mosquitoes, toxins in our environment, latex, and medicines (Penicillin, Sulfa, Erythromycin).
  • It can be a one time event, as in a bee sting, eating a certain food, or using a certain medicine. From that time on, exposure to these substances are avoided.
  • For some, the allergic reaction can be life threatening, such as with a food allergy, peanut-995053_960_720like peanuts or shellfish.
  • The allergic reaction could be seasonal, occurring at a particular time of year, such as spring time with hay fever. But they can also occur periodically during other seasons.
  • People watch their diets, avoiding the foods that they are allergic to or have a sensitivity to.
  • Babies may show an allergy/sensitivity to some foods, such as milk and other dairy products. A reaction may manifest as having digestive issues, nasal congestion and/or eczema, which may continue through their childhood and adult years.

(If there is the potential of a life threatening allergic reaction, it is always good to avoid being exposed to that substance, and to be prepared if there is a reaction by using  western medications and treatments. It is always good to be vigilant, cautious, and pro-active about the allergy, especially if it is life threatening.)

Healing With Homeopathy

I have noticed in my practice that people who experience allergies, have been experiencing them for many years. The allergy usually seems to affect the person at a certain time of the year. Someone may have come in for homeopathic care for a particular health concern, not necessarily allergies, and as they are healing the allergies are also getting better. They are not having the periodical/seasonally reaction. Or, their sensitivity to a certain food becomes less. Homeopathy is always addressing the whole person, and that is what heals, the whole person. As the person becomes healthier, the sensitivity/allergy becomes less bothersome.

One patient of mine experiences a seasonal skin eruption during the February/March months. The skin eruptions were on both of her arms and was extremely itchy. As she was healing with homeopathy, each year this skin eruption became less and less. This last time, the skin eruption was on one of the arms and was not itchy at all.
