How Homeopathy Can Change Your Mental Outlook
When I had just finished homeopathy school, I took a case of a young boy that was having trouble in school. He told me his teacher was mean, he didn’t like her. Of course, there were other problems: bedwetting, ADHD, diet requirements no mother could meet, and various and sundry other items. His mother’s chief complaint was that he wasn’t doing well in school, despite being on Concerta. They had tried Ritalin, and it was unsuccessful. Even on a strong dose of Concerta, this child was not able to concentrate on his schoolwork.
Upon asking him about school, he revealed he hated math. ‘The 5-times tables are so hard!’ Of course, this was the class in which the much-despised teacher reigned. He dreaded getting out of bed in the morning because he knew – math class loomed! He had anxiety before tests, which manifested when he woke in the morning.
At his first follow up, his mother cheerfully reported bedwetting was rare. When we were alone, I asked how he was doing in school. ‘My teacher is so much nicer now. And we’re on the 7-times and 8-times tables in math, they’re SO EASY!’ I just had to laugh. Not only was he doing better, but in his mind, it didn’t have anything to do with him. This is commonly what you hear when a child is doing better. It’s the circumstance; they cannot imagine they might change.
With adults, it can also be easy. But oftentimes adults will attribute an improvement to something else they did to change the outlook. It may be a new supplement, an easier job assignment, a new health club or health-care provider. Sometimes it is obvious overnight. The person will call a few days after the remedy, and report an astounding fact. This is such welcome news to a homeopath’s ears. Often it is more gradual, but still resulting in the same improvement over a longer time period. The grayness clears, the pessimism lifts, the energy improves. These are all subtle reactions to the remedy, and are difficult for a lay person to pinpoint.
If one is stuck in a rut, it may take a little push to get out of it. This is often easily achieved by the correct remedy. It may be a low dose, a 30C. If there is a larger problem, such as depression or substance abuse, it may take a 1M or 10M to start. I’ve occasionally started with a 10M in mania cases. It all depends on how serious the problem is, combined with how strong we perceive the vital force in that person. A child with a long history of health problems that shows none of the normal energy of a child may need a small dose of a remedy, whereas a child that is bouncing off the walls and throws temper tantrums with regularity may need a 1M to start.
So if you’re feeling blue, check out your local homeopath, and make an appointment. The way you feel the ‘blue’ is a key to which remedy you need. Maybe you mope around the house and become a couch potato. Maybe it’s weepiness, or heading to the local bar. The way your vital force expresses your symptoms is the way we find that remedy that will have you singing in the rain! And it’s not just your mental outlook that improves, it’s every aspect of your life. Aren’t you worth it?
