Homeopathy Is Investigative Work
Homeopathy works to treat all of a person, not just the physical symptoms.
Like a detective uncovering the many elements of a case in order to recreate the story behind a problem, naturopathic doctors such as Richmond Natural Medicine’s own Tiffany Bloomingdale work to unveil the story behind an ailment. Naturopathic doctors take the time to address all concerns and learn about a person’s history in order to understand their predisposition. Only then can they “solve the case” and find the remedy that will address everything the individual needs. The key is understanding someone’s constitution.
These investigative stories include not only physical concerns but those that are mental and emotional as well. If someone continually falls ill, there is likely more than simply a faulty immune system. There is an energetic level beneath the physical that requires a different set of tools in order to treat the health concern in its entirety.
“Long-standing issues are where homeopathy shines,” says Tiffany. But homeopathy can work to refocus any imbalance in the human body. It is gentle and deep acting, allowing a person back into “the driver’s seat of their own health.”
Imagine your body is a spacious room. In one corner, you may have boxes blocking some of the space. In another area, something might be obstructing an exit. All in all, you may not have the tidiest room. Let’s say the corner with boxes are certain emotions you may avoid, or struggle to express. And the obstructed exit is where those feelings need to escape. Homeopathy is the act of unblocking the spaces in your room so that you can better navigate and experience the landscape of your body.
Homeopathic remedies are the solution to reestablishing that landscape. These remedies are derived natural sources including plants, minerals, and animals, and can be prepared as dissolvable white pellets or liquids that energetically cleanse the body. After discovering the story a person’s body is telling, a naturopathic doctor can then determine the appropriate remedy. These remedies can also be combined with lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise. The doctor will establish the right balance for the person and manage this over time. This includes determining the correct potency and dosage of a homeopathic remedy based on the individual and any prescription medications they may be on. Homeopathic remedies and prescription medication can work harmoniously in rebalancing the human body.
In the end, it is up to the individual to listen to what their body is saying. If you feel your story isn’t being heard, consider taking a homeopathic approach to your health, and investigate what Richmond Natural Medicine has to offer. Click here to learn more about homeopathy.
