Homeopathy makes caring for a distressed baby a lot easier...
Well, it makes it a bit less difficult!
Whenever my baby cries for no obvious reason (obvious reasons being hunger, a head bump, etc) and does not respond to being comforted, I know homeopathy can help.
Step 1. Just OBSERVE :
How is baby acting different than usual?
What is the quality of his cry like?
What is his mood, attitude and behavior like?
Is there anything that makes his state better or worse?
Step 2. SEARCH the internet :
Unless you have homeopathic books and know-how, in which case, use them!
There are key signs to observe that will point you towards the remedy that will help. These are learned with experience, but here are a few examples.
Very common teething remedy
Asks for something and then refuses it once given (so acts like he wants to nurse but then pulls away from the breast for example, or ask vehemently for cheerios then throws them on the floor angrily)
Crying in sleep
You might feel frustrated with the baby in this state. Listen to your feelings, they can point you to an important sign. What do you feel frustrated at?
Wants to be carried-only calm when slowly carried
Can have greenish-yellow secretions
Might be a reaction to fatty food
Calcarea Carbonica 9ch
Crying or aggravated from 7:30 to 9pm
Sweaty head when sleeping
Lots of baby fat
Step 3. Give A SINGLE DOSE of the indicated remedy and WAIT
Depending on the age of your baby, you can give a single granule or dissolve it in water and give a drop of the water solution, or, if breastfeeding, just take a dose yourself while feeding.
I use filtered water in bottles and mini cups from the dollar store. And recycle after use, so as not to inadvertently dose someone else.
I have had absolutely amazing results by using homeopathic remedies in this way. Seeing my baby go from distressed to peaceful and usually sleeping within minutes is the norm now.
If I don't have amazing results in the above manner, I resort to seeing the homeopath and taking a remedy myself! The baby always improves after I get a good remedy. :)
I hope this little post can help you and yours!
As always, please reach out if you are in need of assistance.
It seems to be getting a bit warm outside...
Remember last summer? 40 degrees and humid!
Thankfully this year is not that hot.
If you are someone who suffers from the heat consider helping yourself to adjust with these two amazing and versatile homeopathic complexes: HTSF TRAUMA and HTSF INTOX.
Last summer, I was quite pregnant and during the first heatwave I felt like I was going to die. It was intense. Nausea, twisted intestinal sensations like food poisoning, headache, and general malaise.
I felt like I was about to be violently ill.
Until I remembered what the brilliant Martine Jourde had suggested to save the chickens during the last heatwave. The heat hits them like a TRAUMA and they get sick as if INTOX (icated).
If you would like to learn how to use these complexes, please join my HTSF Line One class this September 2019! Would love to see you there!
There is a subdomain in homeopathy concerning the use of "cell salts". These are 12 mineral combinations found in the human body. The proponents of cell salts seem to be able to heal almost all illness by re balancing one or more of these salts (and silicea).
If you would like to dive in, I recommened the book by Boericke and Dewey (two masters of homeopathy). It's called: The 12 Tissue Remedies of Shussler.
Nothing is more beneficial than self-care.
Let me put it this way...
DOING absolutely nothing at all is more beneficial for your health than DOING so-called self-care.
Well, back to what Buddhism in America was trying to tell us...
We are trying too much. There is just too much DOING going on. Remember that we are human-BE-INGS, not human DO-INGS-TOO-MUCH-just-one-more-thing-today-I-can't-stop-even-too-CARE-for-my-self!
So, I invite you, for your own health and well-being, to do not, not one thing, do NOTHING and just be, for a moment is all. It might not feel very good at first, since it is totally out of your comfort zone, but it is a real step towards wholeness and respecting the sacredness and meaning of your own time on Earth.
Please share how NOTHING was for you today! :)
