My journey to homeopathy happened out of luck. I had tried for years to get relief from chronic bladder infections. I was on and off antibiotics for years. The most frustrating part was that I would have a lot of pain and discomfort but when I went to the doctor they couldn’t find anything wrong with me. I was desperate to find a solution and was lucky to find homeopathy. I could have tried other natural modalities but for some reason, homeopathy was what I chose.
That experience happened more than 12 years ago and I’m excited to report that not only do I not suffer from that chronic condition anymore, my entire health has improved due to homeopathy. Being exposed to homeopathy has broadened my horizons in many ways. I ask questions of my healthcare provider so that I am informed and knowledgeable about my body and what goes into it.
I used homeopathy before, during and after both of my pregnancies. I give it to my children when they need support.
Although homeopathy is often times lumped into the “all things natural group,” homeopathy has it’s own system of medicine that uses diluted substances to stimulate the body’s own healing response. It has been in use for over 200 years. It’s widely used in many countries. There are over 2500 remedies to choose from. In classical homeopathy, we use one remedy at a time to treat symptoms. Homeopathy is holistic in nature in that it treats the whole person, not just your symptoms. Unlike some medicines that can suppress the body’s symptoms, homeopathic remedies help to stimulate the body’s own response to heal. In addition, homeopathic remedies are:
- FDA approved
- Safe for infants and pregnant women
- Low cost
There are two different approaches to using homeopathy: acute care and constitutional care. My blogs have focused on acute care, short term conditions that most people can solve with home prescribing. Constitutional care is indicated for longer term chronic conditions (like my bladder issues) and it usually needs the guidance of an experienced practitioner.
