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 the issues, I think (I'm aware this is a complicated area beyond my simplfying things here) is the 'miracles' that come out of good homeopathic prescribing. The patients who couldn't walk, who now can. The ones (I read a post about recently) who were blind and can now see. The children diagnosed with autism who are then non-autistic. The ones who've tried for years to find a solution to their migraines/depression/anxiety/physical problem and really you can probably insert any condition there. The people with a CD4 count of 4 (that's really really not good) and sent home to die who are then 2 months later able to walk, laugh and talk. A few more months later, most definitely not dead and indeed continuing to get better.
These are not made up cases. I've seen some of them in practice. Others friends and colleagues have treated and others I've read about in journals. That's something we do a lot of I think. The homeopaths I know are constantly researching, reading, discovering and learning.
But I think it doesn't perhaps help us. Instead I could tell you about eczema that's improved, PMS reduced and gone, anxiety decreased, headaches gone. School children who are struggling to concentrate focusing more in class. Bad dreams gone. Constipation improved. Mucus more manageable. Ordinary, everyday stuff. Normal to many of us, perhaps not that exciting and actually to that individual, hugely helps their everyday world. So I think there's a place to share the normal. The mundane. To embrace the everyday joys that working with homeopathy can bring. It doesn't have to be extreme to be exciting. To be able to sleep when you'd struggled for years is pretty fab really. Lessening of PMS is great for everyone around.
Then there's cases when the 'miracle' doesn't happen immediately and I think sometimes there's a disappointment it's not immediate for some.. it can have been years of struggling with that complaint - and sometimes I/we get there straight away, just spot on with a remedy that matches that patient and onwards we go. Otherwise it takes a little more time. My promise to a client is that I'll do my best.
So whilst I love the amazing things homeopathy can do, perhaps it's time to celebrate the normal, ordinary, steady, everyday miracles too. I am really happy to see those in practice alongside the rest.
