Homeopathy – Helpful For Many Health Concerns (2020)

Over the last 9 months, I have seen people for various health concerns. It is always a gamut of health concerns. The age range is from baby to older adult, more women than men come in.

To me these various health concerns show how helpful homeopathy is. Very often people come to homeopathy because they are not getting the help they need from western, allopathic medicine. There is a need for homeopathy.

The health concerns are:

  • coronavirus symptoms
  • shingles – two cases
  • eczema
  • digestive issues
  • broken and fractured bones
  • menstrual issues – heavy bleeding, exhausting, painful
  • help in healing after surgery
  • ongoing (chronic) urinary tract infections, very painful
  • dental work
  • depression
  • reaction to a vaccine
  • help when receiving vaccines needed for a new job

Homeopathy looks at the totality of the person, the holism of the person. It is not just the diagnosis or name of the syndrome, such as shingles or an urinary tract infection, but the totality of the person. Such as – what other symptoms is the person experiencing? In what other parts of the body? What makes the symptoms better or worse? What is the pain like? What is their emotional state? Dreams? What was happening right before they got sick or developed this symptom? How long have they been experiencing the symptom(s)?

My Mulberry Tree – A Description of Wholeness

In my backyard, there is a big, beautiful, non-bearing fruit Mulberry Tree. At this time of year, January, the leaves are turning yellow, and falling to the ground. When I haven’t raked up the leaves, the ground is covered with yellow. Almost like it has snowed yellow, and a little bit of green and brown.

To have a walkway for my patients to come to my consultation room, I need to sweep away the leaves, making a path for them. The image of shoveling snow comes to me as I am sweeping the leaves to make the pathway.

It takes about 4 weeks or more for all the leaves to fall off the tree. As I am raking the leaves, I thank the tree for all the shade and coolness it has given me during the summer. Once all the leaves are gone, I have the tree trimmed back. It is a very fast growing tree. I need to do trim the tree every year.

There are a lot of parts to the tree: the leaves, the trunk, the bark, the branches, the roots, and the blossoms in the spring. It often is a home for birds who have made their nests in it. There is a cycle of life to the tree – birth, blooming, being in full splendor, dying off, dormancy, and rebirth. The fullness of the tree provides shade, and is pleasant to sit under it when it is so full. It is majestic and beautiful. All of these components – the physical elements, what the tree provides, and signifies all make up the wholeness of the tree.

We Are A Whole Being

We are like the tree. We are a wholeness. We have parts. The parts of our bodies – our skin, our organs, our limbs, our blood vessels, our genes, our blood, and more. We have our emotions – we express, respond and react to things that happen in our lives. We have our thoughts, our dreams, our behaviors, our interests, our wants and desires, our sensitivities, our loves, our fears, our relationships, what we give, what we do, what we create, and more. We have cycles – menstrual, birth, sleep, digestion, and growth. All together, all these parts make up the whole of each of us. The parts are connected and interrelated with each other. We are a wholeness.

When someone becomes ill, injured, or has a traumatic situation we can’t just treat one part of the body or just one symptom. We need to see, know, and understand the totality and the wholeness of the person. This is what homeopathy does so well. Homeopathy is truly a holism form of medicine.

Homeopathy – Treating the Person Not the Disease

What brings someone to homeopathy is often a specific health concern, a certain symptom or symptoms. For example, someone will say I have Fibromyalgia, can homeopathy help me?

As I said in my blog, THERE IS A NEED FOR HOMEOPATHY, homeopathy can help.

Homeopathy is treating the person, it is treating you, not the disease. The disease is a name, a label to a list of symptoms.  People ask me when they call or when I am talking with them, does homeopathy treat this or treat that? I say yes, it does help. Homeopathy is treating you who has this particular disease or symptom.

We are all unique individuals and experience the disease or symptoms differently from each other. Two people who “have” Fibromyalgia experience it uniquely to themselves. They each may have the common symptoms of Fibromyalgia, the ones listed under the label, the name, but each of them experience the fibromyagia symptoms differently. The how, the what of each person’s experience is what the homeopath wants to understand. This leads the homeopath to select the most similar homeopathic remedy to the person, to the person’s individual state. This is Like Cures Like or the Law of SImilars.  Homeopathy is addressing the healing of the whole person – the emotional, the mental, the physical, and the spiritual sides of the person.

There isn’t a homeopathic remedy for Fibromyalgia. There is, a homeopathic remedy for the individual person who is experiencing symptoms listed under the name of Fibromyalgia.  Please note, I used Fibromyalgia as an example. What I have written here applies to all disease names, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, urinary tract infections, migraines and more. Homeopathy is treating the person.

Using Homeopathic Remedies

Our society has the medication paradigm that if you have a symptom, a pain, a health concern take a medication, take a pill. So it is very common for people who are new to homeopathy to think that instead of taking medication, I will take a homeopathic remedy. Have a headache, take a homeopathic remedy; difficulty sleeping, take a homeopathic remedy to help them sleep; having continual indigestion, take a homeopathic remedy. They are replacing the homeopathic remedy for a pill. I was of this thinking as well, when I first was learning about homeopathy 22 year ago. It is very common. But this is not homeopathy. This is using homeopathy in an allopathic way. The thinking is that instead of using western medication for their headache, sleeping difficulties, indigestion, they will use something “natural” instead.

Homeopathic remedies are in pellet form.

In homeopathy, the symptoms are the guideposts and signs that help lead to the choose of the homeopathic remedy that addresses the whole person. Through understanding the suffering of the person, a homeopathic remedy is selected that is similar to that person. This is the Law of Similars or Like Cures Like. Homeopathy is a wholistic form of medicine – looking at the symptoms as part of the totality of the person.  Just giving a remedy for one symptom is not homeopathy.

If there is an ongoing chronic condition, such as headaches, insomnia, digestive difficulties, and you the reader are looking for a homeopathic remedy to help, I would suggest that you see a homeopath rather than treating yourself by using homeopathy in an allopathic way.  A homeopath will take the time to look/observe/understand the totality of what bothers you, including that chronic condition, and then select a homeopathic remedy that is similar to what you are suffering. The homeopathic remedy addresses the totality of you, and stimulates a deep healing.

I am always happy to talk to people, and to answer any questions they may have about homeopathy and their health.

Homeopathy is a Holistic Form of Medicine

I was asked recently what is the difference between holistic medicine and homeopathy.  I can’t say what exactly holistic medicine is, since that is not what I am trained and educated in. I would presume it is looking a the whole person. A doctor who is practicing holistic medicine may not be practicing homeopathy. Being a homeopathic practitioner or homeopath I can say what homeopathy is.

Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine. Homeopathy is a system of medicine developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s.  It has its own set of principles. The main principle is the Law of Similars or LIKE CURES LIKE.  In fact, the word homeopathy means “similar suffering”. Through the observation and understanding of the totality of what the person is experiencing (it is more than just symptoms), the homeopath selects the homeopathic medicine that is most similar to what the person is experiencing. It is like matching the ill state of the person with a homeopathic medicine that is similar to that state. This homeopathic medicine stimulates the person’s own healing process. This is LIKE CURE LIKE.  Western medicine operates from the Law of Opposites. Both the Law of Similar and the Law of Opposites have been around since the time of the Greeks.

Not only is homeopathy holistic, but it is also addresses the individual. Each of us experience what bothers us uniquely to ourselves.  The fact that homeopathy really looks at the individual person is both wonderful and challenging to me. Wonderful, because the homeopath really takes the time to observe and to understand what bothers the person; and challenging, because sometimes it does take time to understand what the “suffering” is like for this individual person.

And by taking the time to see the person in their totality and in their individuation, a deep healing can take place.
