Is Homeopathy for me?
Updated: Apr 3
The simple answer, is yes! Homeopathy is for everyone! But digging a little deeper, some situations call to homeopathy perfectly, so let's look into what those may be.
“Ever since ______ happened, I just haven’t felt like myself”
It could be ever since you had bronchitis, ever since someone close to you passed, ever since your car accident ever since you got married, ever since you started taking birth control, ever since puberty...I think to homeopathy whenever someone tells me that since a significant event, they haven't felt the same. Maybe the bronchitis went away, but a slight asthmatic cough remained. Perhaps the grief became more manageable, but ever since the passing of your loved one, you've had recurrent headaches or your digestion has been off. Whatever the trigger, whatever the symptoms, your body was knocked off course by an event and hasn't been able to get back in tune.
Homeopathy comes in and rebalances the system after a trauma, stress, or illness. It reminds the body of its natural rhythms and brings it back to homeostasis.
“I just can’t get over these colds, they keep coming back!”
While bacteria plays a roll in illness, susceptibility is our main star. We become more susceptible to illness when we are under stress, when our immune systems are weakened, and when we aren't taking care of our mental, emotional and physical health.
We also become more susceptible to illness when our body is not in harmony. If our body is not functioning in balance, it may have forgotten how to handle the external stressors such as cold and flu. So while eating well, exercising, and monitoring our emotional health helps keep us healthy, sometimes the body needs stimulation from an external source to rebalance us at the core.
The next time that illness comes around, your body will think "Ah! We have been here before, this is what we need to do." This isn't to say you will never get sick, your body still needs to attend to incoming bacteria and infections, but ailments will be less intense, shorter in duration, and few and far between!
Homeopathy supports your immune system so it is reminded how to heal itself. Each time you get a cold or flu and treat it homeopathically, the body learns.
“I get a chest/sinus/throat infection multiple times a year and it gets worse every time, I can’t keep taking antibiotics!”
Every time the body gets sick, it is trying to express something. We blow our nose to expel, we cough to clear, we vomit to rid. The body always has a purpose to it's symptom expression, and unfortunately, in Western Medicine, we tend to try and suppress that. While antibiotics "clear" the infection of many illnesses, they also suppress the symptoms that the body is trying to express and can cause other side effects. Oftentimes, the infection comes back because it was not properly cleared at the root cause and the body still needs to work through the illness before it is fully cleared.
Homeopathy cures disease at the root cause and allows the body to fully express the illness and rid itself of the infection, thus reducing recurrent infections. Homeopathy reduces the need for antibiotics and can also reverse the negative effects of long term antibiotic use.
“I can’t take OTC products because of a previous condition (ie: medication, disease, pregnancy...)”
Homeopathy is safe, gentle and effective for use in pregnancy, infancy, in those with lowered immune systems, and with other medications. Because homeopathy works by gently nudging the body's natural functions into action and it does not attack or counteract the body, it will not produce negative side effects. Previous medications and/or treatments do not need to be stopped with homeopathy because there is no contraindication, however with successful homeopathic treatment, previously relied on therapies may not be required. Reduction of other therapies should always be done under the supervision of the appropriate medical professional(s).
Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms in a safe, gentle, and effective manner; no side effects, no contraindications, no need to suffer through that cold!
