True…. Homeopaths treat individuals as a whole and do not trust ‘disease labels’ as defining who we are. No way can treating ‘single sets’ of symptoms with medications and drugs, restore harmony and balance. All that is achieved by mechanistic, insensitive approaches is to supress, repress, and drug to chemically control the natural rhythms within the body. For example, anti-depressants is not a cure. Certain methods of medical intervention does not cure but serves only to numb, block and interfere with the flow within our nervous systems and the body’s innate capacity to self-regulate and heal.
The Stress of Life
"To be alive means to remain exposed to the tidal swing of balance / imbalance, and to experience and confront both"
Edward C Whitmont. M.D.
There is no one alive who can wholly avoid stress. The kind of stress from tension, conflict, repression, depression and disappointments are common, everyday experiences. The daily dramas and crisis seem to be woven into the fabric of our lives, and even as compelling entertainment on our screens and in the media.
The overwhelming evidence from studies in natural science suggests that we are not merely free-floating minds but minds embodied, therefore, whichever way we turn, we cannot avoid the stress manifesting as crisis, pain and disease. This may sound like ‘cause and effect,’ yet the homeopathic approach is to view the body as a whole and try to get away from this mechanistic and disconnected view. After all, we are not machines and so the inter-relations on every level of being, mind, body, emotions and spirit must be addressed as ‘states of being’ and aspects of the whole. Homeopathy addresses many physical problems as having origins in emotional traumas.
In a world where ego-building is universally encouraged as the drive for achieving upward approval, success, satisfaction and joy – inevitable pressures of work, environmental factors, frustrations, conflicts, loss and relationship disappointments will abound. Despite our best efforts to avoid negative stress, anxiety and stay healthy, the capacity for human beings to become ill seems to be something of an unavoidable, in-built plan of human nature.
Interestingly – Dr. Gabor Maté, in his bestseller ‘When the Body Says No’ writes about the ‘cost of hidden stress’ and cites three factors that are universally accepted as leading to stress:
(1) – Uncertainty (2) - Lack of Information (3) - Loss of Control
All in the mind
Every disease has a psycho/emotional connection and there is no clear separation between what is happening in the mind and what is happening in the body. The following is a non-exhaustive list of common states in mental and emotional health
Stress and tension states
Depression and withdrawal
Phobia – fears – obsessional states
Grief and loss
PTSD – post traumatic stress
PTSD – Birth trauma
Post Partum depression (post natal)
Hormonal problems and mood swings
Emotional problems of children – adolescents - elderly
Homeopathy is a natural and dynamic form of medicine based on the principle of treating ‘like cures like.’ In other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if taken in large amounts. Homeopathy uses highly diluted substances, known as remedies, rendered non-toxic and therefore safe to use for children and people of all ages without side-effects
Homeopathy is a unique and compassionate system of medicine with capacity to trace the threads of your life and go to where the pain is. The experience of Homeopathy is that you are treated as a whole and not just the disease label
