There are many reasons and benefits in going to a Homeopath – but here are the 5 most common reasons why individuals go.
Headaches and Migraines
A lot of individuals suffer from headaches and migraines. In some cases it can even be debilitating for the individual. A homeopath works with you to understand your migraines or headaches in their totality. What exactly does it feel like for the patient? What makes it better or worse? Are there any triggers? A Homeopath will then prescribe a remedy that encompasses those symptoms. The remedies help to reduce the intensity, frequency and duration for the symptoms.
Skin conditions (eczema, psoriasis)
The skin is our biggest eliminating organ and often skin afflictions are the body’s way of letting you know that something is going on, on a deeper level. Skin conditions can have many contributing factors as to why they are manifesting in the body, such as stress, dietary issues or environmental sensitivities. A Homeopath’s job is to understand the root cause of why the skin conditions are developing. When a Homeopath prescribes at that root cause, it helps to reawaken the body’s immune system and ultimately start the process of healing.
Mental health issues (depression, bi-polar, manic depressive, anxiety)
Homeopath’s work heavily to understand the mental and emotional characteristics of an individual, such as their stresses in life. It’s a great system of medicine that can effectively address the symptoms of depression, bi-polar, anxiety and many other mental health issues.
Autoimmune disorders are conditions that occur when the body’s immune system is attacking itself (diseased tissue, as well as the healthy tissue). Individuals can undergo both conventional and holistic therapies to reduce incidences of flare-ups. Flare-ups generally occur in incidences of acute or chronic stress. Homeopathy is especially beneficial because it helps individuals to manage stress. It’s also a therapy that is completely safe to use in conjunction with other therapies.
Digestive disturbances (gas, bloating, constipation, IBS)
There is has been a lot of research lately in trying to understand the gut and digestive disturbances. Within some of that research, MDs have discovered this Mind-Gut connection. Where the Mind and the Gut are in constant communication with each other, and how our moods affect our gut and overall health. Therefore, when you treat just the physical symptoms (i.e the gas, bloating, constipation, IBS symptoms, etc), you are only treating part of the picture. Homeopathy helps to balance out both mind and gut by understand how the physical, emotional, and mental symptoms are connected.
