When someone receives a good homeopathic prescription, they experience a rapid re-balancing. It’s only when you are off balance that you develop ill health. This shows that homeopathy works, usually on several levels at once.
Off balance can mean a craving for unhealthy food, a low level of energy or an aversion to doing normal tasks, as well as more serious problems.
For example, a normally healthy young woman came to see me because she had recently developed a craving for chocolate – so much so that she had to stop off at every shop she passed, to buy some It was getting ridiculous, expensive and she was gaining weight as a result.
It had started after she had changed her oral contraceptive pill.
I suggested to her that this was the cause of her problem, and that it would be a good idea to explore more natural methods of birth control. I’m not sure if this advice was heeded, as the homeopathic remedy I gave her stopped the craving instantly. She later told me it was ‘like a switch’.
Another young woman came to see me because she had problems using the telephone. She could manage sending and receiving text messages, but actually speaking to someone on the phone was almost impossible. Of course, this was causing serious problems at work.
She also had problems communicating with people outside her immediate family, so neighbour and work related issues often developed when they could have been easily resolved at the start. She had no friends and was distant to her extended family.
Probably only a homeopath knows what to do with these sorts of problems.
Her homeopathic remedy worked so well, a couple of neighbours dropped in the day after, purely to be chatty and, well, neighbourly, without any move on her part. The issue with the other neighbour died a natural death. Work relations improved to the point she started to enjoy work rather than dread it. And she found herself using the phone more often than using text messages. I’m waiting to see if she makes any new friends, which I expect to see in the coming months.
Fear is very common in the current world. Probably everyone is fearful of something. Yet homeopathy shows that fear is only a state of mind, that can be almost effortlessly overcome.
A small boy was brought to me because he had asthma, was sleeping badly, had recurring bladder infections and was very cranky. The first night after his homeopathic remedy, he slept through the night, and did so thereafter. His moods improved almost as quickly. His bladder infections slowed down to nothing over the next two weeks. And in six months, his asthma had gone, never to return.
Bringing it All Together
In homeopathy, we know that disturbance mostly starts in the mind and shows itself by mental and emotional symptoms that do not enhance your well-being or peaceful way of life. When these are ignored, with is common, then physical symptoms develop.
A homeopath wants to know your state of mind, not to judge, but to find out how your lack of balance developed. Without this knowledge, homeopaths can be working with one hand tied behind their backs.
