I have written about traumas before, and have talked about the use of the homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana in many of my posts when there has been a trauma.
Recently, when I was with a friend, we were talking about traumas, physical and emotional ones. And that often there can be lingering effects from the trauma, such as a person having chronic pain, flare up of certain symptoms, feeling emotionally distressed, regressing in behaviors and development, and more.
A trauma can be physical and emotional. Some physical traumas can be from surgeries, giving birth, falls, vaccine reactions, accidents, and experiencing a natural disaster. Some emotional traumas could be the loss of a loved one through death, an illness, or a divorce; the experience of war; the experience of abuse, emotionally and physically; the experience of loss of a job or home; being in a natural disaster; and exposure to toxins in the air, water, soil, or environment.
(I have natural disasters in both categories. We are seeing more of them occurring.)
The person may have sought out help at the time of the trauma or soon afterwards, and may have also used homeopathy. The trauma may have been looked at as a first aid situation, looking at taking care of what has happening at that present time. And the help that the person received was beneficial to them. Yet, for some people there may be a lingering from the trauma, showing up in physical symptoms, emotional states of anxiety, fear, sadness or depression, or a feeling of just not being well. The person may even say, I have not been well since “this” happened.
When I meet with a patient, I often ask what was going on when this (the symptoms or state of not being well) started. In a way, I am looking for a cause. A cause in the sense that this may be the initiator, the start, to why they are not feeling well.
In My Practice
These are some of the traumas, and lingering states I have seen in my practice:
- a woman who had two c-sections. A lot of scar tissue developed, and she experienced a lot of pain and discomfort during her menstrual cycle.
- a concussion from a car accident. The woman experienced vertigo and difficulty focusing and the use of computers was very difficult for her.
- a woman who was exposed to toxins after being in an area where there had been fires.
- a boy who had reactions to vaccines.
- a woman who lost her her husband, and was deeply grieving.
- a man who hasn’t been well since having the flu.
In a lot of circumstances, healing takes time. We don’t always want to hear that it takes time. We want to feel better right now. We don’t like to not feel well.
When we experience a trauma, it may affect us on many levels, and it may also bring up states and feelings we had experienced in the past. We may use different healing modalities to help us, such as homeopathy, message, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, energy body work, therapy, chiropractic, western medicine and more. The healing is a process, and in some ways it can be a deep learning experience about ourselves.
If you feel that homeopathy could be part of your healing process, please contact me, either through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
