Taking Everything Into Consideration – Seeing The Totality Of The Person

Many people come in for homeopathic care for a chronic health issue, that they may have been experiencing for awhile. When I meet with a patient I am finding out how they experience what is bothering them.

Sometimes, this may take several appointments. Each appointment gives more information towards getting the totality picture of the person. To have as complete a picture of the person, helps to come to the homeopathic remedy that is most similar to the patient.

Taking Everything Into Consideration

All of what I have listed here, and maybe more, makes up the totality of the person.

  • What is bothering them? Why have they come for homeopathic care?
  • How do they experience what bothers them? Pain, discomfort, side of body, what makes it worse or better, other symptoms with it. The sensation of what bothers them. Why is this a problem?
  • When did it start? What was going in their life when it started? A trauma, a loss of job, loss of a relationship or loved one, a physical move, diet change, medications taken, a particular medical condition?
  • An unusual symptom or how someone experiences a symptoms uniquely to them. It is called strange, rare and peculiar (SRP)
  • Emotional  state
  • Mental state                                                         spiral-2368124__340
  • Dreams
  • Fears
  • Childhood – events, illnesses
  • Trauma – illnesses, loss of loved one, loss of home, accident, loss of job, accident, natural disasters
  • Interests
  • Medical history
  • Family medical history –  susceptibility to health concerns are passed down from one generation to another. Susceptibility means a tendency to experience/develop certain symptoms or illnesses.
  • Medications taken over lifetime, especially if they were ongoing. The person may have noticed changes/symptoms when starting the medications, or later on. Medications like: antibiotics, vaccines, for fertility treatments, birth control pills.
  • Use of a substance for a long period of time, which has been toxic, such as chewing tobacco, smoking, drinking alcohol, and use of cell phone, especially with children. Symptoms or ill health developed after this. I have read cases about symptoms and ill health developing with overuse of what I have listed here.

Seeing The Totality Of The Person

It is seeing the totality. Finding out as much as possible about the patient. Seeing what may have brought them to this state of ill health. With this understanding and knowledge of their totality, a homeopathic remedy is given. As the healing process moves forward, this first homeopathic remedy may be repeated, a higher potency/strength of the remedy may be given, or another homeopathic remedy will be given. It is a process. Each homeopathic remedy helps us to move forward to the next, and is chosen based on the similarity to what the person is experiencing at that time. The Law of Similars or Like Cures Like is the main principle of homeopathy. The given homeopathic remedies stimulate the person’s own healing abilities, bringing the person back to a more healthful state of being.

Homeopathy To Heal

These are some of the recent health issues people have called me about, and have come in for homeopathic care. Many of these people have also reached out to their physician.

  • skin eruptions – warts, eczema, rashes
  • swollen lymph nodes
  • vertigo
  • migraines/headaches
  • fears/phobias
  • anxiety/depression
  • digestive issues
  • menstrual issues
  • extreme sensitivity to sound and noise
  • reactions to vaccines
  • traumas – physical, emotional, mental
  • eye discomfort and infection
  • pressure in the head
  • not feeling right

Present Moment

This is a quote from Pema Chodron. I used this quote in a previous post –BE Where You Are. I wanted to use this quote again.

Welcome the present moment as if you had invited it. It is all we ever have so we might as well work with gull in flightit rather than struggle against it. We might as well make it our friend and teacher rather than our enemy.”

I like what she says about working with and making the present moment your friend. To use it. To learn from it. To see what it has to offer.  

PRESENT MOMENT

When I see a patient, I am seeing how they are in their present moment. Past illnesses, traumas, emotional upsets, older physical symptoms along with symptoms or the health issue they brought the patient make up this present moment. I call this present moment, the totality of the person. Totalities change, just like present moments change. 

The present moment is where we start. It is an unfolding process. Often a series of homeopathic remedies are used as the healing process unfolds. The unfolding reflects a deeper understanding of what the person is experiencing. Each homeopathic remedy helps in this process, moving it along.  

THIS PAST YEAR

Over this past year of 2021, I have seen people of all ages, 9 months to 81 years, for many different health issues. Some people sought out homeopathic care for physical issues, and some for emotional issues. Very often, the physical and the emotional issues are interwoven. All the symptoms are part of the totality of the person.  

These are some of the health issues that brought people in for homeopathic care during this year of 2021. issues: 

Warts
Coronavirus
Menstrual issues
Chronic pain
Digestive issues
Grief
Reaction to vaccines
Insomnia
Extreme pain and sensitivity to noise and sounds
Shingles
Concussion
Fatigue
Flu
Hemorrhoids
Nausea
Stomachaches
Anxiety
Eczema
First aid – healing from a surgery, fall, cut on an arm
A trauma – emotional, physical
Coughs
Internal bleeding

Just not feeling well

Starting A New School Year – How Will it Be?

With the start of a new school year, there are often different feelings that come up. It is natural to have feelings about a new situation and wondering how it will be. With the start of this school year, 2021, students of all ages, preschool through graduate and parents too, may be having more feelings of trepidation, uncertainty, fear, anticipation, anxiety, performance anxiety, embarrassed, worry about safety and health than usual. There may also be feelings of excitement, finally, and yay back at school.

I think for any child, and parent, there is a mixture of feelings. Wondering, how will this school year be?

I want to add that these kinds of feelings may also be experienced by people regarding their jobs. They may be starting a new job or going back to work after having been working at home.

Sometimes people – children, teenagers, adults – develop physical symptoms from having an upsetting experience or from anticipating something that may happen. The physical symptoms could be stomachaches, headaches, nausea, diarrhea, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, menstrual changes, skin eruptions, obsessive behaviors, phobias, fears, nightmares, sore throats, breathing difficulties, earaches, colds, flus, and more.

The emotional state and the physical state of a person are connected. Each are pieces making up the totality of the person. Homeopathy looks at the totality of the person.

ANXIETY

I want to specifically address anxiety. Several mothers I talked to recently suggested that I write about this regarding college age students. A thank you to these two mothers for the suggestion.

anxiety word

Very often, people who say they are feeling anxious are given a prescription medication. The prescribed medication may be relieving for a period time, but it is not healing, at the core. We use the words “anxiety” and “anxious” a lot. It is a BIG generic term/label/diagnosis, and it is treated in a generic way too, not looking at the individual and what they are experiencing. Homeopathy looks at the individual and what they are experiencing.

To ask and seek out help is a very positive, constructive action to take whether for yourself or a loved one.

Homeopathy: Putting Together, Piece By Piece, The Jigsaw Puzzle That is You

I was at a meeting the other day, and the presenter was talking about sole business owners and how they need to develop and to nurture themselves and their business. The presenter specifically was talking about having a plan, a picture, a vision of what you are working towards for your business. She gave the analogy of a jigsaw puzzle, saying that when you work on a jigsaw puzzle you need the picture of what it will be when finished, otherwise, you won’t know what it will turn out to be. This is the same with your business, she said, you need a picture/plan/vision to know where you are going and if you are going in the right direction.

I thought this was a good analogy to what she was talking about. And I thought, this was not true with homeopathy.

The Pieces Make Up The Whole

In homeopathy, the homeopath doesn’t have a picture to look at as they are meeting with the patient. They have no idea what the whole picture will be like or turn out to be beforehand. The homeopath views, observes, witnesses, listens to jigsaw-puzzle-712465_960_720the pieces as the person is speaking, and puts these pieces together making the picture, the whole picture, of this person.

The person may say they have ADHD like symptoms, depression, eczema, digestive issues, or headaches. This may sound like the picture, but for the homeopath it doesn’t tell them anything about this particular person. It is a piece of the puzzle, a piece of the whole.

When we go to see a doctor, we are used to having each piece treated, separately. Have a headache, take this medication. Have digestive issues take this medication. That is how western medicine works. This is not so with homeopathy.

Healing With Homeopathy

The homeopath is finding out about all of the pieces of the person, and putting them together to make a full picture of THIS person who is in front of them. The picture is of THIS person, not of the ADHD symptoms, the digestive issues, the depression, the eczema or the headaches. It is the totality of the person. A homeopathic remedy is then given that is similar to the wholeness of the person, stimulating the person’s own healing abilities.

One Patient

A woman came for homeopathic treatment because she had lingering effects from an injury. She talked about this injury, as well as other parts of her life (pieces). As she was healing after taking the homeopathic remedy, the lingering effects from the injury subsided; she was sleeping better; her interactions with her family members improved; and she was experiencing less discomfort and symptoms as she transitioned into menopause. All of these are pieces of her, making up the totality of her. The healing is of the whole person, and as the person heals, the pieces heal too.
