When The Holiday Season Is Difficult – Homeopathy Can Help

It is just about the start of the holiday season. Stores are starting to be more crowded. The temperatures are cooler. We are making plans – to travel, to see friends and family, to host and attend parties, for celebrations, and to shop. This time of year can be both wonderful, and can be difficult for people.

It brings up a lot in us, about ourselves, our families, our financial situation, our childhoods, our futures, our children, our hopes, our dreams, and our health. In many, many ways, it is a busier time of the year.

THE HOLIDAY SEASON

During the holiday season, we can be more susceptible to becoming ill with a cold or flu or there could be a flare up of an ongoing chronic health concern that we experience tree reflectionfrom time to time. Someone may say, you know, every year around the Christmas holidays I get sick, like with a really bad flu. Or someone else may say, this time of the year is when I get so many asthma attacks, I wonder why. And for others, their digestion may be off. Some may experience more headaches. Others are feeling more anxiety or depression. And others may have flare ups of their skin eruptions. These are just a few of what some people may experience.

THERE MAY BE MORE TRIGGERS

We may be more sensitive to our surroundings at this time of the year, and therefore experience more triggers.

  • Our schedule is different, sleeping too little, staying up later at night and getting up early in the morning.
  • The foods we eat are different. We eat and drink too much.
  • We travel and are in different time zones.
  • We are around more people, the general public and our families and friends.
  • We are alone, and may feel isolated.
  • We have expectations of the holidays, of ourselves, and where we are in our lives.

All of these could be triggers, and then we don’t feel well.

TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES

The important thing is to take care of ourselves. Listen to what we need or not need, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Listen to our gut. Check in with ice-crystal-64157_960_720ourselves. Trust and honor ourselves.

Homeopathy can be very helpful and healing during this time of the year. Issues, emotions, situations, responses, reactions, physical complaints and concerns may come more to the surface at this time of the year.

I invite you to give yourself, and/or a loved one, the gift of health. I would be happy to talk with you, either through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

I wish you all a wonderful, happy, joyous, fun and safe holiday season.

Flu Season, Again – Taking Care Of Ourselves

This is the time of year that I usually write a post about the flu. We actually have not heard too much about how this flu season is looking. That doesn’t really matter. There are ways to help care for ourselves and our family as a whole if we do come down with the flu, or experience lingering affects from the flu. Homeopathy can help with all of these.

Previous Posts About The Flu

Here are links to prior posts that I have written about the flu:

  • Gives some homeopathic remedies that are helpful if someone comes down with the flu. (Click here)
  • Talks about taking care of yourself, and the history of using homeopathy during the flu season, specifically mentioning the 1918-1919 flu epidemic. (Click here)
  • Talks about how some people may move through the flu fine, but experience lingering affects afterwards, and how homeopathy is helpful. It is called “never been well since”. (Click here)
  • Talks about homeopathic care before, during and after pregnancy. If a pregnant woman comes down with the flu, homeopathy can be very helpful.  (Click here) (Unfortunately, it is becoming more common for pregnant women to be given the flu vaccine. The vaccine used to not be given at all at this time, knowing it was dangerous for the mother and the developing fetus.)

Taking Care Of Ourselves

Changes are happening all the time in our lives. We have losses – a loved one dies, a marriage ends, an expectation isn’t met, being fire from a job. We have new beginnings – a new home, a new educational program, a new job. Even the changes of the seasons and the time can affect us. It is okay that we are affected by these changes. It is life happening.

When these these changes happen, how do we respond to them? How do we react? cup-of-tea-and-honeyHow do we go through these events/changes? How do we listen to ourselves? How do we talk to ourselves? What do we do? What do we not do? Do we ask for help, if needed? How do we take care of ourselves during this time?

If we are not in our best health, we may be more susceptible to coming down with the flu. Taking care of ourselves can involve different kinds of healing modalities, walks, pursing activities we love, eating good food, sleeping well, exercising, laughing, being with people we love, and more. When we take good care of and respect ourselves, we are in a better place to care for our loved ones.

It Is Okay

Know that it is okay to get sick. It is okay to have the flu.

In a way if we do become ill, with the flu, it is often our body saying, “Hey, I am making you rest so you can take of yourself. Slow down.” And the body has a wonderful ability to heal itself, of taking care.
