Acute vs Chronic Ailments

Acute vs Chronic Ailments

When is it ok to self-prescribe?

One of the best things I find about Homeopathy is that it can be used safely at home, without worries of overdosing or dangerous side effects.  

For most acute problems, such as short lived common ailments like colds, coughs, headaches, tummy aches, etc., as well as minor accidents and first aid, self-prescribing homeopathic remedies is totally ok, and is a way that most people find homeopathy.

In fact, always encourage my clients to learn more about using homeopathy at home so they can easily treat themselves and their families when needed, for common ailments and acute situations.   

Of course, having a homeopathy first aid kit will make things very easy to treat at home, and most of them come with a little book to help you find the right remedies for particular problems and conditions.  

You can get your own kit in various places, including Helios and Ainsworths in the UK, or you can also get them by becoming a member of Homeopathy 247 (it’s free) and ordering from there, shipping worldwide.  

So when do you need the help of a professional homeopath?

I manage several homeopathy Facebook groups, and I often see people asking for help with choosing remedies for chronic or more serious or complex conditions.

Whilst homeopathy is great for self-prescribing in many situations, chronic, serious, and complex conditions will most likely require the help of a professional homeopath.

The treatment of chronic and complex conditions is not easy, and will probably require various methods and digging deep into the root causes of these problems.  This is certainly not easy to do on your own. 

Just like you would not perform surgery on yourself or your family, or self prescribe for depression, arthritis, endometriosis, chronic fatigue, or chronic menstrual problems.  

Even us homeopaths have our own homeopaths for these sorts of things!

Working with a professional homeopath will help you peel the layers that have built up through physical, emotional and spiritual toxicity and trauma, and helping you to heal yourself once and for all.

Can Homeopathy help with post-j*b symptoms and “shedding”?

Can Homeopathy help with post-j*b symptoms and “shedding”?

(Note:  I’ve had to include symbols for some key words due to potential censorship).

I’ve been reading and hearing so many stories lately about people having various symptoms from receiving the current injection.  

Some of these reactions are mild and short lived, others have been very distressing and debilitating, even life changing or fatal.  I’ve heard these reports on dedicated Facebook groups gathering people’s experiences and testimonials, as well as from personal friends and family.  

More recently I have been also hearing stories about people, in particular women, who have not had the current j*b, but have been in contact with people who have had it, and are getting some unusual symptoms and side effects.  These have included extremely heavy menstrual bleeding, skipped periods, miscarriages, menstrual bleeding in menopausal women, flu-like symptoms, severe headaches, and more.

Can homeopathy help?! 

YES!  Homeopathy already has great success in helping people with post va****tion issues for a long long time.  I’ve helped people clear toxicity from recent j**s or even those that have taken place a long time ago when we could see that it was one of the main factor in their ongoing health problems.  

Although these new v****nes are a new technology, and we are still not sure to what degree homeopathy can help clear the negative effects, we are already seeing some promising results in helping people with direct or indirect side effects of the new j*bs.  

So how would I work with you to deal with these symptoms?

The way I usually work when detoxing toxicity from any source is multifaceted.  The most important things I would do are to support your detoxing organs and balance your hormones and neurotransmitters.  I would address your current symptoms with appropriate remedies that address your physical, mental and emotional state.   And, of course, I would also detoxify, with appropriate remedies, the actual substance that is causing the problems.  

The process would be similar whether you had the injection yourself or if you think it is due to shedding.    I will work with what is in front of me at that time, no matter what the cause is. 

The process may take a few sessions and detective work.  These j*bs are new, so we are working in new territory with homeopathy.  We are still finding what works best.  

“But Steph, I haven’t had the j*b and/or haven’t been in contact with anyone who had it – but I’m worried about the effects.”  

If this is you, then the best thing to do is to build up your immune system and raise your energetic vibration.  

Homeopathy can be a wonderful way to do this.  Appropriate remedies can support your immune system and address any susceptibilities you may have, as well as address your anxiety and stress.   

If you’ve been waiting to heal from any long term issues, whether physical or emotional, then this may be the time to do it.  Healing will help your immune system and raise your vibration even more!

Grounding for anxiety and overwhelm

Grounding for anxiety and overwhelm

In these crazy times we live in, have you been feeling anxious or uncertain? Or perhaps overwhelmed and indecisive? Maybe you just want to crawl in bed under the covers and not come out for a while?

At the end of summer my anxiety had lifted and I had been feeling positive for a few weeks. But recently the overwhelma and anxious feelings came back, and I was wondering why.

When my lovely friend Rachel Peacok (who is also a wonderful energy healer) mentioned to me the other day she wrote a blog about Grounding, a little lightbulb went in my head.

Have you ever noticed that when you go out into nature and truly breathe in the fresh air and feel your feet deeply planted on the ground, that you feel steadier, more focused and calm?

Well this is all because of grounding!

This summer I walked barefoot on the grass many mornings, feeling the dew and soft ground on my feet, connecting me directly to the centre of the earth, and bringing me stability and strength for the rest of the day.

I had also been going for walks in nature almost everyday, and I realised I hadn’t really been doing much of it in recent weeks!
Rachel mentions in her blog the following easy ways you can ground yourself any time you feel out of sorts:

“Walking or standing barefoot on the earth
Placing a grounding crystal like hematite or black tourmaline between your feet
Running your wrists under a cold running tap
Eating. Particularly foods like chocolate and coffee
Spending time in nature “

You can also meditate and visualise grounding and connecting yourself to the earth and the universe. Rachel’s blog details a beautiful visualisation exercise you can do every morning. Go and check it out!

Even something like taking a few deep breaths can help to ground you.

Homeopathy also has a wonderful remedy for grounding – Oak! Think of the deep roots, stability and longevity of this incredible tree; it is the epitome of grounding!

What are your favourite ways to ground yourself? I’d love to know! Feel free to send me a message or share in the comments!
