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 was reflecting this morning just how grateful I am for homeopathy in my life, and despite having hundreds of remedies around my house and clinic room, how these kits come into their own time and again.
I've several. I've the yellow Childbirth kit which I'll do sessions on how to use for pregnant mamas and their birthing partners, and 3 of these that I can rent out, if people wish to borrow it instead of purchasing their own. That was something that was going on when I started working at Craven Clinic and something that I still offer. I've the Ainsworth's 42 remedy kit, I've a small kit in the car made from a wallet someone kindly gave me.
Then I've several blue kits just like the one pictured. My daughter was at boarding school for a few terms and she had the kit with her at school, I've had conversations with the pastoral care lead on what remedies to give to support her in different times. My partner has a kit that he takes if he's travelling without us. I've got Jeremy Sherr's ultimate 200c remedy kit which is a bit more of a whopper of a kit, and is what I take if I'm travelling for a while away from my remedies, though sometimes will just opt for the 36 Helios kit too.
I've given a remedy to a hairdresser struggling with cold sores who was heading out to photograph a wedding in Rome. Probably the highest ever remedy gifting I've done, however many thousand feet up in the air on our plane. I've helped out a waitress in Skiathos who was struggling with nausea and dizziness. I've heard feedback from so many clients who get the kit and are incredibly grateful for it, the latest being:
Oh and the first aid homeopath kit has become my most used and treasured possession. Wondering how I managed for so long without one!
I took my first kit travelling to Thailand, Australia and lots in between and used it to help people with splinters, hangovers and lots more. I hope you're seeing how much I love them!
The latest, and this morning's reflections come about through having a boyfriend with flu sleeplessly get through several nights. I tend to be more reticent to come forwards in terms of rushing in with remedies now, but it was 3am and no fun so I mumbled something along the lines of 'can I help? Shall I get the kit?'. My partner, who is so much more organised than me, has his kit in the wardrobe and it was only a short wander across to get it. He went through his symptoms and I put a remedy into his mouth, and was grateful at that point he got to sleep for several hours.
It reminded me of the time my daughter had croup many years ago, and moments after the remedy was taken she was sleeping easily; he did the same. From snottily snuffling his way through the first half of the night to sleeping with ease... hooray! A repeat at 6am had similar effects and he's steadily improving away.
Improvements for me, better sleep for him, happy all round.
They really are the gifts that keep on giving.
Thanks to Helios and all involved in making these and similar treasures!
