Homeopathy & healing in chronic pain treatment
HOMEOPATHY FOR WOMEN'S HORMONAL HEALTH
I have successfully treated women with the following conditions:-
Irregular or stopped periods, PMS (premenstrual syndrome), PMT (premenstrual tension), PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder), polycystic ovaries syndrome (PCOS)
Hot flushes, night sweats, hair loss or thinning, 'flooding' (menorrhagia), mood swings, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping (insomnia), anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, low energy, tiredness
Most of my female patients before coming to me have tried everything to get well or relieve their symptoms. As you will see from my case examples below, homeopathy offers a real alternative.
SUCCESS STORIES - women's health - infertility, periods stopped, menopause, post hysterectomy, low libido, flooding etc.
The benefits of patients using homeopathy for female hormonal problems are significant, as drug or other interventions can often be avoided.
Below are some of my cases summaries for female hormonal problems:-
SUCCESS STORY - infertility, depression, periods stopped (amenorrhoea), conception
My patient in her 20s had not had a period in five years, and was desperate to have a baby. She had already undergone IVF treatment which had been unsuccessful. I prescribed homeopathic remedies to clear toxins and address her depression about her ongoing difficulties.
After two consultations with me, my patient's menstrual cycle returned and she conceived a couple of months later. I am happy to learn that she recently gave birth to a baby girl.
SUCCESS STORY - amenorrhoea (periods stopped), emotional shock
My patient in her 30s consulted me because she hadn’t had a period for 7 months. I enquired as to what was going on in her life around that time. She told me that her husband had collapsed - but he was ok now. She started to cry. I gave her a homeopathic remedy for shock and upset.
When my patient’s husband came for his consultation, he reported that his wife’s period had started soon after she took her homeopathic remedy.
SUCCESS STORY - back pain, hysterectomy, hormonal imbalance, insomnia, tiredness, guilt, worry, depression
My patient in her 40s had been treated for back pain by two chiropractors for the past 5 years which had not helped. She said it felt like a bruised coccyx. She'd had a hysterectomy 20 years previously. She suffered insomnia and was tired on waking. She said she felt old. Her other symptoms were catarrh, bloating, feeling guilty, worried and burdened. She cried a lot when recalling mother’s death. Overall, I felt she was depressed.
I prescribed three remedies to address her hormonal imbalance, her grief and her compulsion to take on too much for the family.
One month later, she came for her follow up appointment. She looked ten years younger and fantastic. She told me she had much more energy and felt happy. To me she seemed carefree. All her symptoms had gone but for catarrh and bloating. I prescribed one of the remedies I had previously given which resolved those last two symptoms.
SUCCESS STORY - low libido, female hormonal problems, tiredness, and anger
Patient age 31 whose main concern was her low libido. She said her libido ‘had gone’ following the birth of her first child. She felt angry and tired. She was worried that her lack of libido would cause problems in her relationship.
I prescribed one remedy which fitted all of her symptoms.
At her follow up appointment one month later, she told me that she was delighted that her libido had returned, and said, “Why didn’t I know about this years ago?”
SUCCESS STORY - menopause, flooding (very heavy periods), female hormonal problems
The first thing my 43 year old female patient said to me was, “I’m bleeding to death.” She was experiencing almost constant periods with massive flooding. She had been put on hormones by her GP but was no better. Previously she had had a coil, and been on the contraceptive pill.
I prescribed two remedies to address loss in fluids, the and the hormonal imbalance.
At her follow up appointment one month later, my patient told me that she had had a 26 day cycle with an 8 day bleed but had had some spotting. Her hormone levels had been tested by her GP and found to be ‘normal.’
I prescribed a new remedy based on her overall symptoms.
At her next follow up appointment, my patient described herself as feeling very well. She had had a 32 day cycle, with a 5 day bleed, with no bleeding in between. She now had a lot more energy. She had consulted her GP who agreed who agreed that she no longer needed to take the hormone treatment that he had previously prescribed.
CONCERNED ABOUT DES?
Concerned about DES? Homeopathy can help. Contact me.
Diethylstilbestrol (DES) is a synthetic form of the female hormone estrogen. It was prescribed to pregnant women between 1940 and 1971 to prevent miscarriage, premature labor, and related complications of pregnancy. The use of DES declined after studies in the 1950s showed that it was not effective in preventing these problems.
In 1971, researchers linked prenatal (before birth) DES exposure to a type of cancer of the cervix and vagina called clear cell adenocarcinoma in a small group of women. Soon after, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notified physicians throughout the country that DES should not be prescribed to pregnant women. The drug continued to be prescribed to pregnant women in Europe until 1978.
DES is now known to be an endocrine-disrupting chemical, one of a number of substances that interfere with the endocrine system to cause cancer, birth defects, and other developmental abnormalities. The effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals are most severe when exposure occurs during fetal development.
COULD YOUR EMOTIONS BE HURTING YOUR HEALTH?
In my experience as a homeopath and healer, negative emotions are a significant factor in the development of chronic health problems, often the MAIN factor.
Negative emotions, if not resolved, will be stored in the body somewhere, and forgotten about. Negative emotions are toxic.
Fortunately, the body has a warning system that something is wrong – SYMPTOMS.
Symptoms are the language of the body and are important clues as to the cause of dis-ease. Homeopathy can help the physical effects of negative emotions and the emotional pain that caused it.
Sciatica back pain from sadness grief REAL LIFE CASE
20+ years ago, I had sciatica; pain down the back of my left leg. I could not even walk without pain, let alone run. I had seen my GP, had physiotherapy, and as that didn’t work, had 18 months of chiropractic treatment, and I was still no better.
I was a student homeopath at the time, but hadn’t thought that homeopathy could help back pain. But seeing as nothing else had worked, I booked a consultation with a homeopath.
At my first consultation, I was prescribed a combination remedy. There was no change. A month later, at my next consultation, I was prescribed another remedy in different potencies (strengths) to be taken over 7 days.
Four days after starting the remedies, my sciatica was completely gone, and has never returned!
When I went back to see my homeopath, he told me that he'd given me a remedy called IGNATIA. It's for GRIEF. I had suffered a bereavement prior to my sciatica starting. I had never made the connection.
SUCCESS STORY - haemorrhoids
My patient in his 20s consulted me with haemorrhoids and anal fissures which he’d had for EIGHT YEARS. His local hospital had confirmed this, but they hadn’t started any treatment.
I prescribed two homeopathic remedies to be taken daily. A month later, I received a phone call from my patient who’d had another hospital appointment. After examining him, they told him that two of the fissures had HEALED and they couldn’t see any haemorrhoids!!! (They had healed too).
What accounted for this success so quickly? I had prescribed remedies for suppressed anger. I had picked up on his anger as we talked, though he was overall a very calm and gentle person.
Negative emotions in women's hormonal health problems
In my blog titled Homeopathy for women's hormonal health you will see that negative emotion was usually a factor contributing to a physical health problem.
Depression with arthritis successfully treated REAL LIFE CASE
See my blog titled Homeopathy for depression & psoriatic arthritis for details of arthritis that improved significantly as my patient's depression was treated.
HOMEOPATHY FOR DEPRESSION & PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS
Mr S consulted me for homeopathic treatment for PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS which he'd had for some years.
His first consultation took around 90 minutes. I told Mr S I would that I would send his homeopathic remedy after I'd reviewed my notes, and taken all factors into account.
A chose the remedy AURUM for Mr S. AURUM is indicated when a person is depressed and in a dark place where they see no hope.
Mr S didn’t tell me he was depressed because he didn't realise it, but homeopaths are trained listeners.
A great result!
A month later, my patient returned for his second consultation. He no longer had pain and swelling of his joints, and his depressed 'vibe' had gone. He psoriasis hadn't completely gone, but he was delighted with the improvements so far.
Whether the arthritis caused the depression, or whether the depression to his arthritis I do not know, but I have found that illness often begins in the mind and emotions. See my article Could your emotions be hurting your health? for more information.
Homeopathy for depression and gut health
Depression can have physical causes too, one of which is gut health which is something that I can help with.
HOMEOPATHY & CHRONIC FATIGUE, TIRED ALL THE TIME
Mrs A consulted me with chronic fatigue. She said it had started with vomiting and diarrhoea after drinking contaminated water while on holiday and drank from a tap on the campsite she stayed at. Only afterwards did she notice that the water had “things swimming in it.”
Though her vomiting and diarrhoea cleared up, she said she never recovered properly. Her energy had taken a nose dive and she went on to develop chronic fatigue, and spent most of her time lying on the sofa exhausted.
I gave the homeopathic remedy Arsenicum Album, and there was a marked improvement straightaway.
When I next saw Mrs A a month later, she looked happier and healthier. She described how much more active she'd been, doing quite a lot of gardening and sorting the house out.
Causes of chronic fatigue
Homeopathy works by treating the cause and the ‘whole person’ (not just their symptoms, so it can deal with the various causes of chronic fatigue, such as:-
Chronic fatigue syndrome treatment success
72% of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome who received homeopathic treatment reported positive health changes. Read details of the study here.
ARTHRITIS IMPROVEMENTS IN THREE WEEKS – SEE PHOTOS!
This image above is two photos of my patient's RIGHT hand - on day 1 of treatment then on day 21 of treatment.
Before and after treatment photos
This image below shows two photos of his LEFT hand - again on day 1 of treatment then on day 21 of treatment.
On both photos you can see that the fingers have started to straighten and the patient experienced less inflammation and a greater range of movement in both hands.
HOMEOPATHY & HEALING IN CHRONIC PAIN TREATMENT
In UK news recently, health officials have said that painkillers should not be prescribed for chronic pain, as they can do “more harm than good.” and new research shows that the drugs commonly prescribed to control pain made no difference.
And there is a risk that long time use of painkillers will lead to addiction.
You can read the NICE report here.
What is chronic pain?
Chronic pain is pain that carries on for longer than 12 weeks despite medication or treatment.
Natural medicine offers solutions to chronic pain
Natural medicine, like homeopathy is safe, non-addictive and treats the CAUSE of the pain. When you heal the cause of the problem, the symptoms can no longer exist.
And it works even if you’ve had symptoms for a long time. Read my success stories below.
Pain is a sign that something needs to be healed. Treating only the symptoms (using painkillers) does not heal the cause, so symptoms will persist. In addition, long term use of painkillers is detrimental to your health, as NICE have stated in their report.
Chronic back pain - my story
I know personally how depressing and debilitating long term pain can be, and how relief from pain can change your life. Many years ago I suffered with excruciating back pain for which I had consulted my GP, and had the physiotherapy that was advised. This made no difference so I spent 18 months having chiropractic treatment. Eventually I accepted that I wasn't any better. By then I was a first year student in my homeopathy training, I booked a consultation with a homeopath and my back pain completely cleared up within two months of treatment.
Natural therapies for treating chronic pain
I recommend homeopathy for most physical problems including chronic pain. A homeopath will take everything into account, all your symptoms, your health history, your lifestyle, your mental and emotional state, and environmental influences.
Homeopathy for pain of 27 years duration – success story
Mr Y, a patient in his 50s consulted me regarding his painful migraine headaches, which happened once or twice each week and had gone on for the last 27 YEARS! Just before a headache started, he became ravenously hungry. It was this unusual symptom that led me to prescribe the homeopathic remedy I prescribed.
When I next saw Mr Y, his headaches had COMPLETELY STOPPED, and he looked much healthier. I stayed in contact with Mr Y - his headaches never returned.
Sound Healing for the treatment of pain
During a Sound Healing session you can relax and switch off. In a Sound Healing you will experience a state of deep relaxation, but you will be fully conscious and aware of your surroundings. You can read more about Sound Healing here.
Sound Healing success story
Sound has been used for thousands of years to bring about healing. This is the story of someone I treated for chronic pain:-
I was consulted by Mr J, a man in his thirties who was experiencing constant pain due to injuries sustained in a road traffic accident a decade earlier. He had difficulty walking and was in severe pain. Because of the pain and stiffness Mr J found it was easier to remain seated for the healing.
After the healing, I could not help noticing how different Mr J now looked - peaceful and relaxed with no indication of pain in his expression or demeanour. We discussed his experience of the healing session before our session was completed.
Some 30 minutes after leaving, Mr J telephoned me to tell me quite excitedly, that for the first time in ten years he had been able to reverse his van onto his drive. The pain and stiffness that had prevented him from carrying out this manoeuvre HAD GONE.
It was a delight to hear this news from Mr J, but I was even more surprised by the change in the one of his voice. Our voice expresses who we are in totality. After a healing, our vibration is changed, and this can be noticeable in our voice.
I didn’t see Mr J until three years and during that time he was well and free of pain.
I hope you feel inspired and hopeful that solutions to chronic pain do exist.
