The different stages
Consider all the stages a women goes through during her life. From teen to young adult, to motherhood for many women; going through one or more pregnancies, to peri-menopause, menopause, post-menopause, our senior years, and everything in between.
During the different stages in our lives we will experience various symptoms of physical nature and mental emotional nature. It might be menstrual complaints with pains and physical discomfort coupled with emotional symptoms. During pregnancy, birth and post pregnancy, a host of potential situations and complaints may arise where you’ll need some form of medical treatment or support. Menopause; the time before, during and after. Definitely a period with big changes to a woman’s body where treatment might be needed to address issues that come up in body, in mind, or both.
The part and the whole
Our body is wise. It tells us where it needs our attention if we take the time to listen. Symptoms are the body’s language to let us know that something is not quite the way it ought to be. So what do we do about it?
- There are two ways of looking at and addressing symptoms:The conventional way: The part is sick and the part must be fixed. Isolating the part from the rest of the body.
- The holistic way: The part is connected to the totality of my whole being. Treatment includes the part, as well as the organism as a whole.
All the systems of the body are in communication all of the time. The nervous system, the endocrine (hormonal) system, the digestive system, and so on, depend on the best functioning of all systems for overall optimal health. Our immune system is at it’s most efficient when all the systems are strong and vibrant. Treating holistically means that all the systems of the body are addressed and considered to re-balance what is not working properly. When the organism as a whole is not at peak health it means our immune system suffers, leaving us susceptible to other diseases, acute as well as chronic.
Conventional vs. Homeopathy
Let us take the example of someone suffering from depression and anxiety.
- Conventional medical treatment consist of taking an anti-depressant. The anti depressant job is to suppress your emotions (anti: to work against). The medication is not prescribed with consideration given to your other systems; to other symptoms you may have in different parts of your body. Let us say you are suffering with depression, migraines and acne. It is very likely you will receive 3 difference prescriptions (or more) for the three “symptoms” or signals your body is giving you. The prescriptions are meant to suppress the symptoms. The absence of symptoms does not equal good health. Chemicals added to your body suppress the symptoms, not the same as healing.
- Homeopathic treatment heals holistically. It takes ALL of your symptoms, mental, emotional and physical into consideration when deciding on which medicine will help you improve from all symptoms using ONE remedy specifically tailored to YOU and your individual expression of disease (imbalance). Homeopathy always address the underlying cause of the symptoms you are having, asking; why are they there, what are they telling us, and how can the symptoms be removed and overall health restored? This is key to homeopathic case taking, prescribing and ultimately healing. Restoring health and balance to the whole organism – MIND and BODY.
