Homeopathy – Healing The Whole Shebang

tree-309046__180Homeopathy is truly a holistic form of medicine. Homeopathy focuses on and treats the whole person. I wrote in an earlier post about my mulberry tree in my backyard. I used the tree as an analogy to wholeness. You can read that post here.

What brings someone in for homeopathic care is usually a specific reason – a physical complaint, an emotional issue, a lingering affect from an accident, an ongoing response to something, or just doesn’t feel right. In addition to hearing about this specific health concern, the homeopath is also finding out about the whole person. The specific health concern is often a reflection/a manifestation/an expression of the whole.

Wanting The Whole Shebang

I often say that I want the whole shebang in a healing for the patient. What I mean is that medicine-wheel-401408_960_720there is a healing for what brought the person in, AND there is a healing in the person themselves as a whole. This could mean that other health concerns that may bother the person are better; the person is eating and sleeping better; and there is a shift in the person’s mindset. The person has a better sense of themselves, and becomes more of who they truly are, not being held back by limitations, either physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually.

A Good Example

Recently, I had a very good example of this – a healing of the wholeness.

A patient who has been seeing me for over 6 months for homeopathy, recently told me that her gynecologist had noted that she is moving through menopause in a very timely way. A blood test had been given to my patient, and the results from this test showed that she was almost through the process of menopause. (I didn’t know that they had this kind of test.)

My patient comes in regularly for follow up appointments. Together, we have seen how she has been moving forward in her health. What brought her initially in for homeopathic care is much better. And she has remarked that other health issues and how she has approached situations in her life are better as well. She had specifically commented in one of the follow up appointments, before she had had the appointment with the gynecologist that I mentioned above, that her last menstrual period had occurred with no significant discomfort or excessive bleeding. She had experienced these kinds of symptoms before, during her period, and before having started homeopathic treatment.

I was not surprised to hear what my patient’s gynecologist said, nor about how my patient was experiencing her menstrual cycle. I was not surprised to hear that the healing that my patient was experiencing had not only been for what brought her in to homeopathy, but also was helping her in many ways. The healing was healing the whole of her. This is what you want.

My patient also added that her gynecologist was interested in knowing more about how homeopathy is helpful and healing. And that perhaps she would let some of her other patients know about homeopathy.

More To -“A Woman’s Cycle”

I want to add to last week’s blog post A WOMAN’S CYCLE.

There is this cycle that I talk about, the menstrual cycle, but there is also the cycle of life – the cycle of living. I am specifically referring to the roles and the relationships that women have in their lives. Daughter, friend, partner, girlfriend, wife, co – worker, colleague, lover, mentor, mother, aunt, niece, cousin, grandmother, citizen, teammate, self and more.

We may often put someone before ourselves, taking care of them, making sure they are alright, and perhaps, not taking care of ourselves as best as we could. Or we may not listen to what we feel and know would be the right thing for ourselves, or for a loved one. For example:

  • A woman who has a young family. She experiences headaches that often come before her period starts. The headaches could be related to her menstrual cycle. She just lives with the headaches, doing the best she can. By taking care of herself, she will be taking care of her family.
  • A woman who really is the foundation for her entire family members – children,     mother-and-son-864142_960_720grandchildren, husband, the people she works with, and her friends. When she doesn’t feel well, she is still taking care of others, becoming worn out and sick.
  • A woman who has menstrual difficulties, but feels there isn’t the time, or maybe the money, to spend on herself. Her children have health issues, and she needs to spend the time and the money on them.
  • A young career woman who is very successful and hard working, does not particularly like her job. She has this ongoing health concern that is not getting any better.
  • A woman who is very involved with her family and her business. She often feels run down and tired, needing to take the time to rest, the time to refuel, so she can continue to be all that she is to others.
  • A woman who has a concern about her child. He is having difficulties in school. She intuitively knows that he needs some help, homeopathy perhaps, but because of time, of other people’s opinions she may not pursue what she feels will be healing for her son.
  • A young mother who doesn’t feel well during her period, uses an over the counter medication to help her through it. This helps her, for this particular time. When she has her period again, the same feelings of not being well occur. The over the counter treatment is not a long lasting healing.

Put The Oxygen Mask On You First

We always hear when we are on an airplane that those who are traveling with young children need to put their oxygen mask on themselves first, before putting it on the child.  This applies here, but we don’t do it so readily. I think it is hard for women to think of themselves first, and to care for themselves, first. I know when my two sons were young, I would say I wasn’t even on the list, the list of things to do and to take care of. And I have to admit, my two grown sons still come first before me.

rose-821135_960_720Experiencing A Shift

For some of the stories I write about here, the women may be better once there is a change to their situations. But we don’t often change our lives just like that. When there is a healing of the physical, the emotional, or the mental complaint, there is also a shift in the person. They begin to look at their lives and themselves differently. It is as though, they are looking from a different angle or with a different set of eyes. Their reality has now changed. Then, they can make changes in their lives, such as: taking time for themselves, changing jobs, doing work that they love, leaving a marriage or a relationship that is abusive, being open to more positive relationships with others, speaking up, listening to their intuition, and more. This is what a healing with homeopathy can do.

Recurring Health Concerns

This past week, I had a call from a father about his 3 month old baby daughter. He has had experience with homeopathy before having taken his older child to see a homeopath. He told me that his little baby daughter was not feeling well. She had had a cold several weeks ago, was better, but now she was not feeling well again. She wasn’t running a fever, and he didn’t think that she was in pain. He said she was irritable.

I was thinking that maybe her irritability was an expression of some sort of pain or discomfort. Obviously, she wasn’t feeling well. Babies and small children don’t tell us through words how they are feeling, but through sounds, behaviors, actions, movements, changes in moods and temperaments. This baby was expressing something through her irritability.

Unfortunately, the father cancelled the appointment he had made with me for his daughter. He told me that they had taken her to see a doctor, who said that it was a cold. The father decided to not pursue homeopathic care, at this time. I said, if the cold continues, or if it returns, it would be a good idea to bring your daughter in for homeopathic care, since she already has been experiencing a recurrence of this, and we don’t want that to continue.

People I Speak To

gumby sickWhen I talk to people either in person or on the phone, they tell me about their particular health concern. I hear all sorts of things, such as the person is experiencing pains and discomforts in their feet. They have an extremely itchy rash or eczema eruption. Breathing is difficult for them. The get very anxious in some situations. There are feelings of sadness or depression. They don’t sleep well. During their menstrual cycle certain symptoms come up. They are extremely fearful and/or have nightmares. They have ongoing headaches, stomachaches, or digestive issues. I hear all sorts of things. The person is not feeling well, and they want to feel better.

Recurring Health Concern

Their health concern is often something that has been going on for a awhile, or it had gone away and now it is recurring again. They have periodic flare ups of it. They are not feeling better from the type of treatment they are using for their health concern, and they want to feel better.

In a previous post, I wrote about a young boy who had recurring congestion, fevers and ear infections. The boy had taken several courses of antibiotics. Each time, he would be better for a month or so, and then the whole situation would happen again. The homeopathic remedy that fit him, that was similar to what he was experiencing, helped him to heal this recurrence of the ear infections, the fevers, and the congestion. He has done well.

Often when there is a recurring health concern, the treatment being used helps to ease and to palliate when there is an outbreak or flare up. This treatment helps the person feel better for the time being, but doesn’t heal the health concern. The person needs to continue taking the medication to feel better, often accepting that these recurrences will happen again, and again.

Does this sound like you?

Healing With Homeopathy

Homeopathy heals at the root cause of what is bothering the person. It is a deep healing. As the person heals, the recurrences and flare ups become less and less, till they no longer happen at all. It is a healing. With the young boy I wrote of, I had thought there might be a recurrence of the ear infection as he was healing, but there wasn’t. The cycle was broken. With an adult, the stopping of the cycle may take longer to happen than with this young boy, since the adult has had this health concern for a longer period of time. But the cycle does end.

I invite you to see how homeopathy can help a recurring health concern that you have. Either contact me here, through this blog or through my website www.homeopathytoheal.com.

We Each Have Our Own Sensitivity

Sensitivity.

We all have our own sensitivity. Why does something bother one person, but the very same thing doesn’t bother another person?  I often give the example of a skin eruption on someone’s hand. For one person, it bothers them so much to the point that they will seek out any and all kinds of treatment to help. Another person, hardly notices it, or if they do, it doesn’t bother them. They live with it. One person is bothered by it, the other is not. One is sensitive about it, the other is not.

Different Sensitivities

Some sensitivities that people may experience are:                                                                                                                          dandalion

  • to noise, to crowds, to fabrics, to foods, to temperatures, to smells, to certain types of people, to violence, to blood, to over stimulation, to under stimulation, to pain, to pressure, to situations, to traveling, to dirt, to germs, and more.

Parts of the body or the functioning of parts of the body that may be more sensitive in someone are:

  • the stomach – digestive issues, the head – migraines, frequent colds, sore throats, respiratory issues, menstrual issues, hormonal issues – in both women and men, skin eruptions, anxiousness, depression/melancholy, fears and phobias, muscular aches and pains, sleep issues, nightmares, eating issues, and more.

Hearing The Sensitivity – A Case of A Boy

The sensitivity is what I hear when someone comes to see me for homeopathy. I hear what bothers the person. I hear how they experience their sensitivity. I hear how they live with the sensitivity, either compensating, making it go away, accepting it, or avoiding it. I hear how the sensitivity affects their life.

I want to tell you about a boy whose parents brought him in for homeopathic care. He was 20 months old at the time. The boy was experiencing nasal congestion, fevers, and possible ear infections, in which several courses of antibiotics had been given. The antibiotics had helped for four weeks, then the congestion, the fevers, the discomfort in the ear returned. He went through this cycle for several months.

As I spoke to the parents and observed the boy, I saw that he had a sensitivity to noise and sounds. His mother told me that when a sound was loud, or if he heard a far off sound, such as an airplane, actually hearing it before she did, he would run to her. She thought that the sounds were scary or frightening to him. He was not saying how he experienced the sounds through words, but showing through his behaviors, reactions, and responses to the sounds. There was a sensitivity to sound. I wondered if the sounds felt uncomfortable or painful to him in some way. Whatever it was, the sounds and noises were too much for him. I really didn’t know how the sounds specifically affected him, but they bothered him greatly, in some way.

boy with truck 2 cartoonThis sensitivity to sound was also expressed as he played. He would make the sounds of trucks, imitating the noises that trucks make as they move, back up, carry things, and push materials. To me, this also showed how sensitive he was to sound. He heard things well, and could reproduce the sounds that he heard.

He has done well with the homeopathic remedy that was similar to what he was experiencing. He hasn’t needed to have any more antibiotics. He has had a few fevers and nasal congestion, but has been able to move through them without any lingering problems. I would be curious to know how his sensitivity to sound and noises are. I would think that he may have less of a sensitivity to them.

Healing With Homeopathy

The sensitivity to sounds is not why the boy’s parents brought him in for homeopathic care. But this sensitivity was very characteristic of him as an individual person, and very much part of him. Homeopathy looks at, and focuses on the whole person. We all of our own sensitivity, and sensitive areas in our body. This is where we may experience symptoms, discomfort, or flare ups when we are experience situations that are stressful physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. With homeopathic care, the sensitivity becomes less and quiets down.
