We have all been there, we are suffering with another headache and we are desperate, it is limiting our enjoyment of life, our work and we cannot stand being in pain any longer. We scour the internet for natural solutions and we come across Homeopathy and recommendations for remedies to alleviate the pain. We see a remedy we think we need and we order it, praying for some relief.
People self prescribe Homeopathy successfully everyday, having a Homeopathic first aid kit on hand to treat acute conditions such as cuts and bruises, a bout of food poisoning, an ear infection, cold or the flu is great. Chronic and more serious conditions such as eczema, asthma, allergies, migraines, menstrual symptoms or ongoing pain should be treated under the expertise of a Homeopath.
Going back to our headaches for example, there are lots of ways a person can experience a headache, the pain can be described as banging, throbbing, piercing or could only affect you at certain times of the month or a particular time of year. In some people the pain starts in the forehead and travels to the occiput, or the headache can only affect the right side of the head, all these factors gives clues to the correct remedy out of hundreds of potentials.
When a Homeopath takes your case they are looking at the whole picture. That is your presenting complaint, your past medical history, your personality and even your inherited tendencies. We look at the headache as a part of your whole picture and then prescribe constitutionally. A constitutional remedy is a remedy that fits the whole case and by administering this remedy the immune system is gently nudged to heal not only the headache but all the symptoms accompanying it.
During a consultation, we listen to your story and we are discovering unique aspects of who you are, whether you are a social butterfly or a bit of a hermit, whether you are an early bird or a night owl, whether you like hot sunny days or rain and thunderstorms, all this information gives us clues to the correct constitutional remedy for you. We are also interested if there has been a recent shock or grief or if you noticed that your health started to decline after a certain event.
The beauty of the art of Homeopathy is how each remedy is prescribed uniquely for each person and as we are all so individual this is how it should be. I witness the beauty of applying the art of Homeopathy everyday in my practice and the results astound even me!
