Did you know that the appearance of a skin problem can be a sign that your body is healing deep inside? Yes, that’s something that homeopaths have often observed over the last 200+ years. I frequently see this myself in my homeopathic practice when someone is taking a constitutional remedy . Perhaps someone’s recurrent bladder infections have resolved but now a rash has returned. Or their arthritis is gone but now eczema has recurred in a mild form. I usually greet these skin issues as a positive development in the course of homeopathic treatment and explain that they are usually brief and mild. When the body heals naturally, it heals from the inside out.
Traveling with Homeopathy
Do you pack homeopathic remedies when you travel? If not, perhaps you should. They can come in handy and even save your trip as they did for me last summer at the lake.
Are you seeing plants vigorously sprouting up around you but not feeling that kind of energy yourself? Spring can be a time when the winter months catch up with us, leaving us dragging. In the winter we spend more time indoors, eat differently, aren’t as active, get less vitamin D and have more illnesses. No wonder it can take a while to get going again when spring arrives. Today, I’d like to share some ideas on how to reboot your energy.
Everyone would love to avoid the flu, right? The good news is that there are some very good natural options to help you do just that.
To start, last month I sent a review of general measures you can use to support your overall immunity during the winter months. If you missed it or would like a review see the blog post here. https://www.lindabakermd.com/blog
Today, I’d like to share some remedies that are specific for influenza. Here are four approaches you should know.
This morning I noted a post on a Facebook forum for holistic practitioners. Someone asked what could be done to stay healthy through the winter months. Last year, this person had been ill constantly and was hoping to not repeat that. There followed a list of comments, everyone recommending their favorite supplement for supporting the immune system. There were 43 comments but not a single one mentioning Self Care!
Everyone may have their own “secret” remedy but the real “secret” is that you can’t expect any supplement to protect you if you’re not practicing good self care!
Taking supplements is fine, and I’ll share my favorites below, but if you want them to work well there are some basics that can’t be ignored.
“The true journey of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
One of the most amazing aspects of homeopathy is its ability to help us to see with “new eyes.” I’ve seen so many of my patients develop a new outlook around some problematic area of their lives during the course of homeopathic treatment. This includes people of all ages, children to adults. They may have been stuck in a vicious cycle around some issue for years but now they have a new perspective.
