The other day I was thinking of who my ideal patient is in my homeopathic practice and the Mother came to mind – The Mother who is usually holistically minded and may have done some reading in holistic health, and on homeopathy. She wants for herself and her family members to experience a long lasting healing for whatever health concern they may have. She doesn’t want her family to be taking ongoing medications that don’t help or heal.
And she doesn’t want them to be experiencing any side effects. She wants a healing for her family and for herself.
The mother may need to talk to her husband or partner, educating them on the benefits of holistic health, on homeopathy. Sometimes she may feel that she needs to use allopathic medicine (western medicine) for a health concern. As a practitioner of homeopathy, I tell mother s that if they do use, antibiotics, we can still continue doing homeopathy. Homeopathy & Allopathic medicine can work safely & effectively together.
The following are some health concerns that the family may experience. Although, they are listed by mother, father and children, some of the health concerns can affect either age or sex.
Some of the health concerns a mom may have for herself: menstrual issues, menopause, anxiety, depression, insomnia, digestive issues, headaches and migraines, fibromyalgia, skin eruptions, chronic fatigue. For children: behavioral issues, eczema, asthma, other skin eruptions, ongoing coughs, stomach aches, chronic ear infections and colds, nightmares, fears, difficulty sleeping, childhood diseases. For her husband: men’s issues, lack of confidence, headaches, insomnia, performance issues in different areas, skin eruptions, arthritis, injuries, flus.
I have seen all sorts of mothers: – From the new mother who wants to know how to help her young baby develop immunity to the grandmother who has brought in her grandchildren for behavioural issues. Then there is the mother who is concerned about her teenaged son who has skin eruptions & the mother whose 7 year old son has an ongoing cough, or has a teenage daughter who has difficult periods. Mother s also call me about their mothers. The mother is often the gateway to the family’s health, she brings herself, she brings her children, she brings her grandchildren, she brings her husband/partner, and other family members.
Sometimes it is the Father who has the role of Mother & increasingly we have Fathers on our Homeopathy for the Home courses – These are a fun & informative day to learn more about the history & philosophy of homeopathic prescribing as well as the most common remedies for everyday illnesses & ailments – coughs, cold, headaches, ear infections, sore throats, vomiting, diarrhoea, etc.
