Bouncing Back to Good Health

Bouncing back to good health
Bouncing back to good health

I have been treating a young boy since the beginning of October with various allergies, asthma, coughs, tummy problems and a history of taking prescribed steroids and anti-biotic which can cause more problems.

His Mum brought him to me because every winter he would get very ill and he would become quite anxious as winter approached. I’ve supported him through the winter with homeopathy. We still have some more work to do but interestingly because homeopathy treats the whole person it helps on so many other levels as you can see from some feedback that the boy’s mother sent me last week:-

“Hi Tracey, I just wanted to let you know how XXXX is doing, he has really calmed down, much less grumpy! He’s back to the kind, helpful loveable boy he always was! When he plays on the computer, he comes off with no problem now, he used to argue and be really rude. Now it’s “Ok Mummy” and he comes off!! He still has a little cough and has used his inhaler the last couple of days. But it doesn’t bother him and he gets over these attacks quickly. But overall his behaviour has really improved so I’ve seen really big changes. I’m really grateful so thank you so much.”

I have seen him 4 times since the beginning of October and now hopefully he will just be on a maintenance programme to continue to help his immune system become stronger. I am also hoping that he will not experience as many hay fever symptoms as Spring approaches.

Many people don’t realise that because homeopathy is holistic it can help on so many other levels, it works on both the physical and emotional side as the feedback above shows.

During treatment, as each person’s level of health improves other changes can also be noted as it helps the person return to good health.

I also don’t how a person will respond to a remedy and how the body will use it, so I ask my patients to note any changes on a diary sheet that I provide.   This allows me to assess the remedy at future appointments, I can then either change the remedy, repeat or increase the potency depending on what they report back to me.

Our body is very clever and it communicates with us all the time – we just have to be observant and listen to it.

The drugs aren’t working- Anti-biotic resistance

Anti-Biotic Resistance
Anti-Biotic Resistance

This week has been Anti-Biotic Awareness Week.   A campaign launched by WHO to raise awareness of anti-biotic resistance.

So why do we even have this problem. In the past GPs routinely prescribed anti-biotics and as a result bugs and bacteria have become resistant to them.

BUT that isn’t the only problem. Did you know that without effective antibiotics, routine treatments such as setting broken bones, basic operations, chemotherapy and even animal health will become increasingly more dangerous. This is because these treatments rely on antibiotics that work.

So what are the options?

The main aim would be to keep ourselves healthy and well, imagine not having constant infections and recurring coughs and colds. Healthy and clean eating along with regular exercise will help but seeing a homeopath can also help and anyone that has used homeopathic medicine throughout their life will know how effective it is. I haven’t touched an anti-biotic for over 20 years. I believe this is because I have been treated homeopathically and my immune system is so much stronger and is able to kick out viruses and infections when they occur.

That’s not to say I won’t take an anti-biotic if needed for an operation in the future but I want to know the antibiotics used will be effective.

People usually visit a homeopath as a last resort and when they have tried everything else. If only they knew the long-term benefits. You really don’t have to be sick to have homeopathic treatment this is because we also treat constitutionally.   Visiting a homeopath for constitutional treatment to take general care of your health has many other benefits:- less visits to the GP, less time taken off work and less money spent on prescription and over the counter medicines.

A good example of constitutional prescribing is the treatment I offer for hay fever. It is always better for me to see someone during the winter when the person is symptom free so when the spring/summer arrives and their symptoms usually appear they find they have been greatly reduced and in some cases they disappear. Please visit my testimonial page to find out more.

If you would like to find out more on how homeopathy can help keep you and/or your family in good health please contact me for a no obligation chat.

To coincide with  Anti-Biotic Awareness Week this video has been published – it really is a wake up call.

 

Does your winter cold or cough go to your chest?

Winter Coughs & Colds
Winter Coughs & Colds

This is a common condition for people, especially people with asthma or who have had bronchitis in the past. There is a tendency that an everyday cold or cough, if not monitored, will go deeper to the chest. A visit to the GP will usually be required and invariably a course of antibiotics will be prescribed.

Unfortunately we all know from the news that antibiotics are not working as well as they used to and GPs are now reluctant to prescribe antibiotics as freely as they once did. This is because our bugs and illnesses have become resilient and are not responding to them and super bugs are now emerging.

As a homeopath I consider a cold as a healthy sign, if it moves in the right direction and by that I mean outwards. It means the body is busy fighting off infection and is pushing the symptoms away from the body to the outside eventually leaving the body.

I prefer symptoms to be on the outside rather than inside. This is because if the symptoms begin to go inwards they go deeper into the body, hence the cold that goes to the chest which in itself can have many more serious implications.

This is where homeopathy can help. With a carefully selected remedy it can bring the body back into balance, ideally enabling it to work for itself as it was designed to do, pushing everyday colds away from the body .

Anyone that has received constitutional homeopathic treatment during their life can fight off winter coughs and colds more easily without the need to use over the counter medications.
