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!
I'd go so far to say, these days, that it angers me, hearing along the lines of "there's nothing else we can do, you've just got to get used to it." Definitely frustration. Whether that's with headaches being told "you're just a person who gets headaches, you'll have to get used to it", or being offered therapy to get used to coping the intense pain (what happened to getting rid of the pain?), or the media dismissing Goop Goddess Gwyneth for stating that a clean diet, infrared saunas and supplements were helping her post-covid, and saying that she should be using evidence based scientific methods - of which they were able to offer no suggestions. Whatever you think of Gwyneth and her lifestyle, at least offer something in replacement if you're dismissing the things someone feels are helping them.
Anger aside, I'm just as grateful that someone often throws a question out there "Have you tried homeopathy?". And I'm grateful that this happened here and several people recommended me when the person asked for help finding a practitioner.
Navigating our way through these times can be challenging, but if we can help ourselves feel more 'us' in the space, we can do it easier. More and more, I'm seeing reference to the emotional effects that may be lingering after experiencing Covid-19. Sadly though I'm not seeing many solutions offered, though I'm hopeful the question "have you tried homeopathy?" is being asked in more circles.
If you know someone who's struggling post covid with emotional or physical issues, it could be worth asking them that question. Someone asking "Have you tried homeopathy?" made a huge difference here.
Have a read:
After having covid for the 2nd time my post covid symptoms really threw me. All of a sudden words that I never associated with myself felt normal - anxious, panicky, low, flat, demotivated, disconnected. I felt like I was a jigsaw and suddenly lots of pieces of myself were blacked out, invisible. I felt like I completely lost the 'me' of myself. This lasted months and then someone suddenly suggested homeopathy. I had never tried it before, had no idea what to expect. The 2 hour consultation with Em was therapeutic in itself - a reminder of who I am, who I have been. I started to take the remedy that she made for me a few days later. By the following week I started feeling different. Incrementally the colours started returning to the jigsaw. I can't describe the relief at feeling myself again.
With best wishes for a healthy, happy day ahead,
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
