Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
One of those things that I love about life is when I'm surprised by someone or something. I suppose we connect the dots, make things make sense to ourselves all the time, and there's a pattern, a system. For example, it does not surprise me that we're late to school (or at least verging on being late - we often manage the last minute thing) so often. I'm overly optimistic about the time we have, and my daughter has so many ideas and things that she'd like to do and create. This morning it was a mini Norman fort, complete with drawbridge.
But then I get surprised constantly too. The lovely gentle lady in front of me may tell me she loves to sky dive, or a child comes out with a comment that strikes me with its sense and power of observation. Or someone may tell me their coping strategy. This is where I'm going this time. Superglue. As a coping strategy for bad eczema. I'd never been told that before and so I was surprised. At times when the eczema was bad, the skin would split and it would be really painful, so the superglue helped it to heal together. Through the process of a few consultations, we've seen that it turns out in this case, you can swap the homeopathic remedy sepia for the need to use superglue*.
No longer do her hands crack as they were doing. The skin is smooth - last time we met she told me that she kept stroking her hands because they hadn't been that smooth in ages. They're not totally perfect yet, albeit much much better. But it's also not been all that long, and the eczema had been there (on and off) for a long time, so I'm very hopeful we can get them even better.
What a lovely surprise to have. I do so love my work. Although if you regularly read my blog, that won't be a surprise to you.
www.findahomeopath.org has a database of homeopaths around the UK that are registered with the four major homeopathic registers here.
Always happy to chat with people over the phone if you'd like to know more about how homeopathy may help what's going on for you.
With best wishes,
*Sepia will not be the remedy for eczema in every case, only where the symptoms fit. There are many remedies that may help with eczema and it's worth seeing a homeopath for a full consultation to help this get better.
To find out more about the remedy sepia, homeopath Dr David Lilley has written about it in more depth here.
