Our Philosophy of Healing.
As a crisis counselor, Bach Flower Essences and Homeopathic Practitioner, I don’t diagnose or treat disease. I am here to help you physically, emotionally mentally and spiritually to achieve your greatest health.. The therapies we use are very effective in helping you to be clean, nourished, and in emotional and spiritual harmony to heal.
While Homeopaths are forbidden by law to promise “cure” or to “diagnose” or “treat illness”, we have an important roll to play in HEALING. In nature there are energies and substances which match our need for healing. Sometimes they excite a response in us, in our immune system or the energy of our immune system. This energetic excitement and engagement is a kind of dialogue. Our pain, discomfort, emotional, physical or spiritual causes symptoms in our bodies and our minds. The healing remedies which talk to our symptoms (to keep the metaphor going here) provide exclusively important information for our immune system to do it’s job more perfectly.
A few examples in the long and successful history of medicine and healing : In Traditional Chinese Medicine we call the energy/immune system – the chi. With herbs and acupuncture , movement and massage- the chi is moved to better nourish and activate the self healing of the person.
In Homeopathy- the immune system is called the VITAL FORCE. Homeopathic remedies will communicate energetically with our Vital Force. As our vital force becomes properly informed with the knowledge the remedies bring, we become energetically intelligent to more perfectly heal
The homeopath who has studied these remedies and the thousands of cases in which they were used becomes the bridge between the client and the remedies. We have over 4500 remedies with more being discovered every day. It is a complicated selection and matching process. Even the most experienced homeopath may use several remedies over a period of years before the self healing of the person is complete. People do heal completely. For Chronic complaints it may take time. In some cases it is like an onion peel, one layer at a time. While we all hope for an immediately perfect match of remedy to complaint, the therapy of homeopathy improves our health as you heal without the toxic side effects or suppressive and damaging consequences of chemical, non natural, invasive medicines, treatments and cures which can be avoided and in many case diminished.
In over 25 years of practice I have seen the innate strengths of those whom I am “helping” be the most important contributor to an individual’s healing. An example from biochemistry is helpful here. When a virus invades an organism, increased bacterial activity is characteristic. It has been proven scientifically that these bacteria are important components in the body’s mechanism to ward off disease and infestation. “Good Bacteria” is present beside “Bad Bacteria.”
Another example: When we get a cut or a splinter, or have a food sensitivity to wheat or pasteurized dairy, we often get bloated or swollen; this is an autoimmune response sending lymph to the affected area. Why in both of these cases does our body seem sicker, more uncomfortable, more “dis-eased” when we have these health challenges? It is not that all lymph, inflammation and bacteria are invaders we must eliminate; these are the “troops” our sophisticated biological defense system sends in which safeguard the integrity of our bodies.
When in crisis the body, the spirit and the psyche have at their disposal amazing resources for its recovery.
The miracle of this type of self-healing is the clarity with which our bodies, minds and souls express their needs, when we know how to interpret their messages.
It is my work as a wellness guide to support you in translating your symptoms, in body, mind and spirit. Deciphering the signals or our “disease” leads us to the right remedy to help You heal You.
