I consider myself to be very blessed in the work that I do as a Health Practitioner – I work for myself and I, (mostly), work from my own Clinic within my house. I choose my working hours, who I work with, my working conditions, my breaks and my pay! I am passionate about my
One of the many, many things I love about Homeopathy is the community spirit that it invokes – a sense of connection, support and the ability to make better choices for myself and those I love. When I say community spirit, I’m really talking about connection both with others, with the earth, the sky and all of nature and most importantly with myself. This connection and the knowledge that accompanies it, is what enables me to make informed choices, because I know what makes me healthy and what makes me ill.
As a Homeopathic Practitioner, I am in daily contact with other Homeopaths all over the world – thanks to the internet & social media. We share our clinical findings, observations, learnings, news and research. We support and encourage each other so that we can help as many people as possible to the very best of our ability. Many people would have you believe that this community of like-minded souls is tiny – not true – Homeopathy is the second most popular system of medicine in the world (the first being Herbal Medicine). You, dear reader, are part of a huge wider community – one of millions of people worldwide who have used Homeopathy and continue to use it for a huge variety of health issues. We use it because it works! We use it because it’s cost effective and we find – invariably – that using it changes our lives for the better.
We are able to choose Homeopathy, because mostly we live in countries that, (on paper), operate a system of democracy and freedom of speech. This means a society that honours many different ways of thinking, beliefs and ideas, that it allows for them all to co-exist side by side. There is freedom of choice, supposedly, and Jack does not have to choose the same way of life as Jill if it doesn’t suit them.
Some time ago I had the pleasure of attending an excellent talk by Author, Colm Tobin. Amongst a number of other inciteful issues, he spoke about a time in his life when he received help from the Psychiatrist Ivor Browne, in order to face and process the loss of his father. Ivor Browne likened this work to removing a stone from a previously flowing stream – a stone that had stopped the stream in it’s tracks and forced the water to either alter it’s course or sometimes stop all together.
The traumatic events that we do not process healthily, that we do not truelly experience, feel, & accept, become like these rocks and although we think ‘oh that was years ago, I have dealt with all that’, if we haven’t really felt the feelings and learnt to get through them and continue on our way, they have a habit of remaining until we do so, and they can take alot of our energy to keep them in their place. Also our ‘flow’ is slowed, diverted and diluted. In order to learn from all our life experiences we need to actually experience them in the first place, sometimes this is just too painful to contemplate, so we tidy the event away into a drawer and we develop all sorts of clever strategies for not getting it out and really looking at it.
The Mandatory addition of the toxin Fluoride to the Irish people’s tap water supply has long been of concern to me, particularly as someone who has a history of Thyroid dis-ease. If you have any interest at all in your Health, you will be aware of the importance of hydration from good, clean water, let me underline that this does not include the addition of neuro-toxins like Fluoride! For this reason I invested in a reverse Osmosis water filter system that filters most toxins out of my tap water including Fluoride and I always choose bottled water when drinking outside of my own home. I recently visited Berlin for a few days and was delighted to learn that the tap water there is not Fluoridated or Chlorinated and as far as I am aware Berliners are not particularly high in tooth cavities! Ireland is one of the very few countries in the world to insist on Fluoridating the public water supply despite mounting evidence of it’s toxicity, why is this?
Having a baby is a life changing experience and for me there are always two births – your baby and the birth of you as a Mother! The early days of being a new mother can be wonderful – full of joy, happiness and love as you gently adjust to your new life being responsible
The majority of my Clients are women and a high percentage of these women come to me with PMT or some kind of menstrual disorder, and this can range from debilitating and disabling, to inconvenient and uncomfortable and everything in between. An increasing number of women I meet are unaware of their natural cycle and
Not so very long ago, I would probably have been burnt at the stake, (and there are those who would still like to do that to Healers like me ……… or maybe it’s just me??!!haha). These days we are just given a verbal ‘roasting’ from time to time by Skeptics, Fear Mongers and Bigots who base their criticism largely in ignorance, Blind Faith (in Pharmaceutical Medicine) and pure Malice. But are we – Modern day Healers – in fact, treated any differently from the Wise Women (and Men), Shamens, Herbalists and Healers of days of yore who stood in the way of larger enterprises touting ‘Modern’, ‘Scientifically proven’ methods of Healthcare, often from highly toxic materials but with expensive and well marketed campaigns behind them? Why has the very term ‘Healer’ become synonymous with ‘Charleton’ or ‘Quackery’ instead of its true literal meaning – why is it that ‘Healing’ or being ‘Cured’ is seldom used in association with Pharmaceutical Medicine? Have we just accepted that if we are ill we do not ever get cured or healed, simply managed for the rest of our days with drugs??
