What type of results can you expect?
Most people would probably agree that the healthier you are, the more freedom you have to live your life the way you would like. When suffering or in pain of any sort, a person can understandably become limited - in activities, energy and often outlook on life. In homeopathy, health is defined as much more than an absence of symptoms. It is viewed as a state of optimal freedom and resiliency on all levels of experience - body, mind and spirit. This is the goal of homeopathic treatment.
I was referred to Martha by my friend whose panic attacks had stopped with homeopathy. It took him awhile to convince me but I am so grateful he was persistent. Homeopathy has helped me emotionally, most importantly, but also physically. My anxiety decreased dramatically, I feel relaxed, younger and do not use medication anymore. I am sleeping like a baby and my hot flashes, if I get them, go away when I repeat my remedy. I heartily recommend homeopathy to anyone and everyone!
My son Kyle is 6 years old and was diagnosed with Aspergers over a year ago. Kyle would have tantrums at school and at home, as well as outbursts whenever we were in public and something didn't go his way. We had tried medication that had various side effects and only lasted for a few months before we had to increase the dosage. Rather than have my son on a cycle of one drug after the next, I decided to try homeopathy. We met with Martha for a consultation and received a remedy. Within weeks Kyle showed major improvements and as time went on his tantrums and outbursts were no longer an issue at school and at home. After a year of not wanting to take him with me to the grocery store I finally could take him out with me all day on the weekends without any episodes. Thanks to Martha I am enjoying spending time with my son again.
Homeopathy has made an incredible difference in my life the last 4 years. I had really bad acne in high school. I had already tried a few different medicines before we heard about homeopathy and saw Martha. My homeopathic remedy basically got rid of it in about 5 months. But the most important difference has been in my self-confidence and self-esteem. I can honestly say I like who I am. This is the exact opposite of what I used to feel about myself, long before I had a face full of pimples! I also used to get really bad cramps when I got my period. Those also have gone away since taking the remedy. I do not need to take Motrin any more or stay in bed miserable one day a month. I am extremely thankful for hearing about homeopathy.
In classical homeopathy, only a single remedy is taken at a time. So if you have a few different complaints, just one remedy will be selected to “cover” them all. Your overall, general state of health (things like your energy level, sense of well-being, sleep quality, etc.) may first improve, followed by or combined with improvements in your main complaint.
Sometimes your symptoms get worse for a short time. If this happens, it is a good sign; it is part of the healing process and should be accompanied by an improved sense of well-being. During the course of treatment, some old symptoms you had in the past (sometimes from very long ago!) may also return for a short time. Again, this is an excellent sign that deep healing is taking place.
The extent of improvements, and how long it takes to see them, generally depends on the severity of your symptoms, how long you have had them, and, of course, the accuracy of the remedy choice. Although some people experience almost immediate improvement in their symptoms, most people will have a more gradual improvement over several weeks and months, and years in some cases.
What most people also find is that less limiting problems which they had gotten used to over time also improve after a period of treatment. This, again, can occur on any level of experience. For example, many people become less sensitive to certain foods they used to have to avoid. Improvement in one’s ability to handle stress is also a very common benefit of homeopathic treatment, even if that was not the reason the person sought treatment!
Along with a healthy lifestyle, homeopathy plays a preventative role by strengthening your overall vitality and keeping your body in a healthy, balanced state. After a period of homeopathic treatment, it is very common to experience far fewer acute illnesses, like colds and the flu, or when you get them, the symptoms are often milder and with a shorter recovery time.
