How can I use homeopathy for my health care needs?
When used properly, homeopathy can have a positive impact on the health of individuals and families in many ways.
One: Healing of chronic conditions
Your professional homeopath works closely with you to understand in detail your state of health, symptoms, and history of your health issues or illness. The homeopath recommends a remedy or series of remedies specifically selected for you, based on the principle of similars. Through a series of regular consultations, you and your homeopath evaluate your progress, and your homeopath recommends the consecutive remedies that are needed, based on detailed study of your evolving “homeopathic portrait”. Many people have found this type of homeopathic treatment beneficial for relief of chronic or recurrent conditions, such as:
- Menstrual troubles, PMS, and difficulties of menopause or pregnancy
- Chronic or recurrent respiratory conditions, such as recurrent bronchitis, colds, coughs, sinus infections, and asthma
- Ear infections
- Joint pain, weakness, and mobility troubles
- Digestive system disorders such as acid reflux, indigestion, bloating and discomfort, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel and others
- Recurrent bladder infections and yeast infections
- Food intolerance or allergies
- Sensitivity to scented products and other chemical or environmental sensitivities
- Insomnia or non-refreshing sleep
- Skin conditions, or illnesses that affect the skin, such as acne, eczema, warts, psoriasis, shingles, hives, herpes, abscesses, boils, and others
- Migraines and headaches
- Slow or incomplete recovery from illness or injury; symptoms seem to be “left over” or originated from a bout of mononucleosis, flu, pneumonia, from another illness, or from an accident or injury.
Your mind and emotions are included in the equation. Although many people consult homeopaths for physical ailments and injuries, mental and emotional characteristics and symptoms make up part of the “homeopathic portrait” and often are benefited by the homeopathic constitutional treatment as well. Homeopathy has been able to bring about improvement in a variety of ways for people seeking healing and relief of effects or symptoms, mental or physical, brought on by:
- Grief or emotional shock
- A tendency to feel ‘down’ or depressed
- Fright or a fearful event
- Stress or worry at work, home, or school
- Anger or frustration
- Postpartum difficulties
- And other emotional events or tendencies.
Two: Fine tuning for optimal health
Perhaps you have nothing that can be identified as “symptoms” or “illness”, but you know you would like to be feeling better! Many people find the homeopathic “constitutional treatment” to be helpful in finding renewed vigor and vitality, and for maintaining good health in the long term.
Three: Healing for children and teens
The years from birth through infancy, childhood, and adolescence can be very eventful, as any parent knows! Homeopathy can provide deeply effective and gentle support for your child through the growing years.
Beginning at birth, each child develops their own individual history and patterns of health, illness, and healing. Homeopathy works closely with the individual child or teen to support them and help them through the various stages of growth and development.
It also can provide rapid healing from injuries, relieve acute symptoms such as teething pain, stomach pain or menstrual pain, and help reduce chronic or recurrent conditions like asthma, allergies or sensitivities, recurring ear infections, and menstrual difficulties, to name a few.
It has also been helpful to many children who experience learning or behavioral difficulties.
Four: Prevention of illness and speeding of healing after surgery
Homeopathy can be very effective in helping to prevent both chronic illness and acute disease. With well-selected remedies, your professional homeopath can help you avoid joining the “virus-of-the-month club”.
Constitutional treatment can help you stay healthier longer and avoid or reduce the incidence of chronic disease.
Your professional homeopath can also recommend remedies to help speed healing after many types of surgery, including dental work.
Five: Effective healing support for everyday ailments and injuries
Homeopathy can provide remarkably effective results for healing of injuries and illnesses that occur in a variety of circumstances, whether it be travel, exposure to weather, sports, recreation, or simply everyday life at home, work, or school.
Burns, cuts, bruises, sprains, broken bones, insect bites, and other injuries tend to respond quickly to homeopathic treatment – along with your conventional first-aid measures, of course!
