What a great week of lovely positive results, thought I would share one with you 😀
64 year old lady with life-long asthma admitted to hospital with pneumonia. Discharged once this is treated but still her oxygen saturations & heart rate are not her normal, she has to sleep in her chair sitting up & has constant chest pain. Her asthma inhalers are increased but these symptoms persist.
We treat her microbiome, to help it recover from the antibiotics, & her chest symptoms as well as her as an individual.
On review she said it was tough at the start but then she woke up without chest pain & more energy (homeopathy treats the person, not just the symptoms so this is the response) her peak flow recovers & her oxygen saturations. After a further set of remedies she is reviewed once more & describes her asthma being the best it has been in 39 years! Nice 👍
Loving the multiple responses you get from homeopathy.
52 year old health care worker, working in young people’s mental health, feeling isolated themselves as working from home. Stiff achey joints, bowel & genital issues & sinus problems. On 100mg Levothyoxine.
Remedies were chosen based on them as an individual, as well as their symptoms. On review their sinus problems had cleared, long-term tooth issues (they hadn’t mentioned) had resolved, feeling more positive & back managing 10,000 steps. On review today their constipation & genital issues had resolved & their Levothyroxine dose has been reduced to 75mcg after years of being on higher doses.
Quite a selection of health concerns to improve with nature’s medicine! Delighted 😀
In celebration of international women’s day here’s a positive story from clinic this morning:
A 26 year old who’s Mum noticed a step-wise change in her when her periods started as a teen. From being a high achiever she couldn’t care, left school early & started working but with horrendous pains & mood swings each month. Conventional options caused her hair to fall out, produced acne & worsening anger. Seen by the hospital & all tests normal.
After a regime of homeopathic remedies she & her Mum report a “big difference” in her PMT, “a lot happier.” She rates her improvement from what was a horrible 10 to now a noticeable 4. Aiming to improve that further so watch this space…. 😀👍
Keeping with the theme of supporting young people…
A 22 year old man attends the clinic with low mood for 4 years with 2 notable moments when the support of others had prevented him ending his life. He has reached out for help but remains feeling “numb’ on antidepressants, spending much time in his bed, not seeing the “point”.
We explored this, some significant difficult moments were identified as the trigger for this downturn in confidence with his low mood following this. A regime of remedies & hypnotherapy techniques were followed & it was so nice on follow-up 6 weeks later to hear how it’s “nice to feel comfortable in my own skin again” & how he “felt insignificant before, now I feel like I matter”.
As young people have less “layers” of life’s traumas they can respond really quickly. He feels motivated to work hard & to pursue his dream in sport.😀
A lovely couple of cases from clinic, the second of which exceeded even my expectations of the powerful healing homeopathy can give! 😀
The first lady is a 63 year old who started to get tired in 2016 with no obvious causative factor. Diagnosed with Chronic fatigue Syndrome (CFS) she is referred by a colleague.
Her life now revolves around planning when she would hope to have energy, eg to see friends for coffee. Often she has to cancel as the fatigue can creep up & worsen into dizziness, making her unable to get out of bed.
We used remedies to work on various factors in her story, including her gut health & her personality. Interestingly research is now suggesting similarities between the body’s response in CFS & Long-Covid.
On review she was delighted she had managed to garden for an hour for the frst time in years & without any “hangover” effects that would see her bedbound for days afterwards. She reports an improvement in fatigue to 3 out of 10 & we are continuing to work on the residual effects of years of fatigue, integrating a gradual exercise programme to build strength & fitness.😀
The second case was a 56 year old lady of Indian orgin who developed Melasma, pigmented patches which are harmless but difficult to treat. It was really good to see this lady face to face as when she showed me her face, that I had seen over our virtual consultation in August, with darkly pigmented areas above her lip, temples & cheeks I was so pleased to see her skin had recovered back to her nice even skin tone, without any patches!😀
A lovely clinic case to share hope for those who suffer with this:
32 year old lady who noticed, after a traumatic relationship ended, that she couldn’t help but pass urine every 15 minutes during the day & at least 2 hourly at night. She had many tests & investigations, numerous antibiotics, which would temporarily ease her symptoms before they recurred & by the time she came to clinic she was exhausted with a very limited life due to her frequency. This had been going on for 2 years.
After listening, trying to understand why this would be the case, we used a remedy to improve her microbiome, now considered to be a fundamental part of the immune system, a remedy based on her as an individual & one based on the sensitivity of the lining of her bladder.
On review last week she was absolutely delighted, she had had her first 12 hour sleep in years & was managing to go for several hours during the day. Her bladder ache had gone & she was relived to have energy at last. 😀
