Constitutional Homeopathy

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Constitutional Homeopathy is a treatment that aims to correct deficiencies in the whole person, making them stronger and more capable of overcoming illness. Usually it involves understanding past and present symptoms, recurrent problems, emotional as well as physical issues, and so on. (More on this in a previous post.)

Yesterday I took a homeopathic remedy based on my constitutional symptoms. The first time I did this, I had a cold for two weeks, a horrible night sweat the first night, tons of grief and increases in the intensity of Lyme disease symptoms. Afterwards, I was in better shape and more able to tolerate antibiotics without immediately succumbing to severe side effects.

Since yesterday, I feel the grief coming back. I feel more sensitive to the people around me and their struggles. It isn’t a bad thing. It’s almost like hearing my friends focuses back on the deep well of grief I dance over every day. I guess it’s okay to feel sad for a few days.

Last night, before bed, I got really itchy and uncomfortable, almost like there was something shifting around in my body and trying to surface. My ears were popping as though I had an ear infection (I don’t and that symptom was gone in the morning.) Even with all the windows in my apartment open, I felt like the place was hot and stuffy. Only, the temperature in the room was cool and I was overheated. It took until 2am to fall asleep.

No night sweat last night. But I woke up cold at 6:20am. I had a burning sensation in my lower abdomen, a forewarning of a morning full of burning, unformed stools. I feel like there is something cooking in there.

At some point today, my eyes started to itch. The lids feel heavy, giving me the impression that I’m sleepy, which I’m not. I am tired, but when I lie down, I’m wide awake and full of thoughts. My ear canals hurt and I’m having sound sensitivity. My sinuses are stuffy. My hands hurt extra much today.

The homeopathic remedy causes a strange reaction.

I’m thinking I need to slow down to let my body deal. Yet I feel lonely and want to be around people. I had two friends over today at different times to keep me company. One of them showed me a music video called “This Too Shall Pass.” It was the right thing to share with me today.

Coiling

Body

Everything I wrote above.

Plus, I think I have a food sensitivity to avocados. Aargh! I love them. But I discovered that they contain malvin, the naturally occurring food chemical I have a reaction to. This explains many random gas attacks.

Today I had an avocado, just to see if it has enough malvin to make me react. It does. So I had to deal with gas pains for a while amidst the homeopathic chaos.
