When every day is a struggle, it is hard to remember the old ME!
When pain is the first thing you feel when you wake up and the last thing you notice when you fall asleep, it is hard to remember how things used to be “before all of this!’
When I asked a client how she was after receiving her homeopathic medicine, I was not surprised by her answer although I was touched by the emotional charge that came with her answer. “I found me for a few moments”. She went on to explain that her ‘moments’ were moments of not feeling ill, moments of not thinking about pain, not cursing how things are or resenting how things are not. Moments when her body relaxed her muscles softened and her head was quiet. “I had forgotten that me!”
Homeopathy is a quiet, gentle, natural, unassuming medicine which sneaks in the back door and helps refresh areas inside your body that haven’t had the opportunity to look out for a while. Quite often it gives you a glimpse of you - of how you remember you.
As everyone is unique and completely individual, the response your body has to homeopathy will be personal to you too. Last week I had a similar response from a lovely lady who called for her second appointment. I asked her how she was feeling, this was her response:
“I do feel different, I am not over thinking things. My brain doesn’t seem as foggy as it did before, I am not so worried about things, of course I still care about what people think but I am not worrying about it. I guess I am more calm, more comfortable, more peaceful even. I have been more positive about things, not so concerned about what might happen, a lot more settled in the here and now”.
I asked when these changes occurred.
“Well not straight away I don’t think, it happened gradually, in fact I didn’t really notice anything happening, but then I realised that I wasn’t worrying, it just came back to me how much I had been worrying about things before I came to see you. I realised I felt stronger, more able to put my case across, just silly things, usually I would feel I had to organise everyone else, now I realise they are perfectly capable of sorting some of the things themselves”.
I asked if she had noticed any other changes.
“Yes, now I have more energy I have been able to do a little exercise, and if I am able to go for a walk I sleep much better, I have even started to dream again, that is quite a difference. And what happened to my guilt?
Usually I would feel so guilty if I hadn’t done everything that people asked of me, if there were dishes left in the sink, if I hadn’t achieved everything I had planned, 3 months ago I would have felt so guilty. I even said no to a couple of of things. This is huge, I am able to put my family and our needs before others, and not feel guilty about it. What really surprised me that everyone was ok with it. When I was asked to do an extra duty and I said no, they said fine, I was amazed! I had always thought I would be letting people down, now I realise this just isn’t true. I feel so much lighter”.
Another client had a similar response
“ I couldn’t believe that you only sent me three little tablets, I thought you had made a mistake, I took them as per your instructions and initially felt no different. Then 3 or 4 days later I woke up and felt … well different, I wasn’t over tired, I had a bit of energy. I even said to myself oh, I feel more me! I even went for a walk and I was fine”.
I am lucky enough to experience the effects of homeopathy through my patients on a daily basis and it never fails to make me smile. How can a tiny tablet make such a profound difference to peoples lives.
When I hear about the comments that are banded around about placebo effect and that it can’t possibly work, I just think how much these people are missing out. If the placebo effect is your body making you better then YES …. we can have more of that can’t we?
With no side effects, with safe, natural medicines which have been tested on humans rather than animals, using natural products that are harvested without endangering the planet, homeopathy seems to me to be an affordable, safe medicine that more people need to be aware of.
