‘With Homeopathy you have to get worse before you get better’?

A great deal of our lives are governed & driven by the Beliefs that we hold. Some of our beliefs we take on from others & some we form ourselves through our experiences and how those experiences have affected us. They are actually an attempt to make sense of something we maybe don’t fully understand or are unable to fully process at the time they are taken on or set up. They are ‘Stories’ we tell our selves and over time they can become so embedded that they become convictions – a total, seemingly immoveable ‘fact’ that it seems impossible to let go of or alter in any way. We all have many different beliefs – some more helpful than others, and many that need an ‘upgrade’!! Often beliefs become out of date or incongruent with what we want out of Life or how we want to feel. The great news is we can change them with a little conscious input, if we want to. Why would we want to? The simple answer is if we find that they are a) stopping us from doing something we really want to do b) meaning that we start things but can’t sustain them or c) they are contributing to a sense of internal conflict – one part of me wants to do something & the other doesn’t.

I am passionate about Homeopathy & all the incredible benefits I’ve experienced personally & witnessed in my Clients over the years. Physical, emotional & spiritual health benefits that never cease to amaze me in Clients who have tried many other Health modalities. It’s for this reason that I so want it to be available to as many people as possible. Hence this series where I am addressing some of the many limiting Beliefs about Homeopathy. Beliefs  that can contribute to putting some people off trying it or fully embracing it as a healthcare option. Some of these beliefs are easily addressed and some take more time to fully explain so I have decided to write a series to address them in ‘bite-size’ chunks!

I am Pro Healthcare choice just the same as I am Pro having a choice in almost every aspect of Life as a Human in a truly Free & Democratic Society. That means that I choose what to put on and in my body starting with the foods I eat & including my choices in medicines. I am totally cool with your choices even if they aren’t the same as mine  – this includes vaccination. This Blog is not focusing on vaccination but I am using it as an example of why the other choices you make about what goes into your body are more important than ever.

What I would like to encourage is that as many people as possible understand the implications of the choices they make as fully as possible, and that includes any possible effects on the body, or mind or both. That means having as much information available to help you make that choice in the full knowledge of any possible risks. If that information is kept from you or not available to you – is it really a choice and what does it say about your freedom to make the “right choice”?

Being a teenager has never been easy, and these days our teens are presented with more challenges than ever before. Most of these challenges are relevent to both girls and boys but both sexes have their own set of gender specific issues as well. It is a time of huge internal and external change and transition as our children start to emerge from and seperate from us, their parents or care givers.

I was recently asked to give a talk to a group of Female Business Owners to help them look after their health and the health of their family’s. I chose to focus on the importance of regular health maintenance or investment in selfcare – prevention always being cheaper and easier than cure! Most of the women in the audience told me that despite the fact that they were running businesses, they were still the principle carers whenever their kids were ill and those with very young kids were constantly taking time off to manage minor illnesses.  I told them about  the excellent Homeopathic remedy kits produced by the Homeopathic Pharmacies, and the use of it for acute illnesses – coughs, colds, headaches, stomach upsets, fever management, toothaches etc. Not only are these remedies very effective, but it’s a brilliant way to learn about Homeopathy and about what works for you and your family. I was very surprised to learn that many of them had not heard of these remedy kits and didn’t know that they could self-prescribe. These were mostly people who had consulted a Homeopath in the past and had success with Homeopathy, but not thought of using it themselves.  They were under the impression that you could only take Homeopathic remedies if prescribed by a Practitioner! This couldn’t be further from the truth, in fact using one of these kits for myself and my children and witnessing how effective they are is how I became interested in training as a Practitioner in the first place!

It is becoming more and more apparent and obvious to anyone working in Public Health that the current model chosen to provide healthcare for the mass population is (a) in crisis and (b) doomed to failure if it continues unchanged.  It is popular to think that this is all about funding – or the lack of it – it is not!  The numbers of people with multiple chronic health issues are growing at an alarming rate and already if you do the maths and look at projections there is simply no way that the majority of international public health systems will be able to keep up.  I am not going to even go into why on earth this is the case despite all the ‘incredible life-saving pharmaceuticals’ available, that’s food for another Blog!  Suffice to say that if we are to have any chance of grabbing hold of our healthcare and actually getting results without becoming paupers in the process a BIG sea-change in both our approach to Healthcare and what we use as ‘medicine’ has to happen.

Some time ago I attended a fascinating online seminar about the ancient art of Face reading – ‘Al Ferasa’. This amazing ancient skill originated in the Middle East with The Bedouin people as a vital part of their ability to identify whether the many different tribes they came across, as they travelled across a huge area, were friends or foe.

‘Al Ferasa’ means to look deeply at something and understand what lies behind it – a way of looking and seeing that deeply resonates with the way I practice Homeopathy & QTT Personal Development work.

The Bedouin understood that the most important parts of life are the interactions or connections we experience with others & this is not always through the spoken word.  Having the ability to instantly navigate and shortcut our understanding of another’s personal and communal story and therefore being able to tailor our own behaviour’s and communication methods accordingly, can drastically affect how successfully we experience those interactions with others. Indeed our inate ability to instantly ‘read’ and feel others overriding or underpinning emotions or intentions, are hard-wired into us and inform us at a ‘gut’ level –  do we want to continue a relationship or run away from it?! First impressions are intuitive but like all intuition, they are based on the energetic exchanges we experience at a conscious and sub-conscious level.

I don’t know about you but I seem to get alot of posts in my various social media feeds from Life Coaches and Inspirational Teachers and other online contacts, all supporting and advocating the idea of constantly striving to stretch ourselves and ‘go beyond our comfort zones’. On first reading, this can make lots of sense and indeed can be very relevant in certain situations and for certain people at certain times in their lives. But as a general principle, I really question this idea of never resting, never being still, always striving for ‘something better – more happiness, more success, more money, more challenges etc’.

We live in a society with record numbers of people with various Adrenal problems, Stress has become an everyday occurance and we are surrounded by messages that all tell us ‘don’t stop, even when you are ill – just pop a pill and get right back to work’. Alot of people are now recognising that the ‘pop a pill’ thing isn’t healthy or sustainable, but aren’t all the self-help videos and messages telling us ‘don’t give in to feeling bad/ill/sad…just put on that smile and get dressed up and carry on’, just as potentially damaging? They are both encouraging us to ignore what we feel, put it away somewhere and keep on striving for that elusive ‘something’.
