How do I know I am healing?

Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference, those small changes that may go unnoticed that signals your body is working in your best interests to find balance and harmony.

Healing is a process of finding ourselves again – physically and emotionally.

So often our symptoms shape us, we forget who we were before our symptoms. We forget there has always been a person behind those symptoms. That person hasn’t gone anywhere; we may simply have stopped seeing and hearing them as our symptoms have been so loud, we can’t hear anything else.

In the process of healing those symptoms we start to see the person we once were emerge again – often a little bit shinier.

When you start to truly deeply heal, it may look a little different to what you thought it might.

Seeing an improvement in the symptoms you are seeking help with is the focus for treatment. That is your focus, your reason for visiting. As a homeopath I am looking at your symptoms in the context of who you are as a person, and the rest of your health and well-being. I am looking to understand how your symptoms could be impacting other areas of your life. This big picture outlook can point to where healing may start to happen first and it isn’t always where we think. 

Other changes may need to happen before those particular symptoms can start to heal.

For example, healing may not start with your skin showing signs of healing with eczema. It could you be you notice you have more energy, your digestion improves, THEN your skin starts to show signs of healing. If you are dealing with asthma AND a skin condition, your asthma symptoms will often start to ease before your skin symptoms. The body prioritises the healing process and it may not be in the order we think.

Other ways your body is letting you know you are healing.

Often healing may be happening in areas we think have nothing to do with our main symptoms, or we may not even notice there are signs of healing – we simply aren’t looking for them. These can include:

  • You start to wake up feeling refreshed.
  • You have enough energy to get through the day.
  • You need less stimulants such as coffee to get through the day or relaxants such as alcohol to wind down at the end of the day.
  • No night waking.
  • Your digestion improves and start to have regular bowel movements.
  • You are not thinking about your symptoms every minute of the day. There are times in the day you forget you even had symptoms.
  • Things which used to bother you no longer seem such a big deal.
  • You are able to slow down and enjoy the moment.
  • You start to notice small clues from your body much sooner than previously. You recognise when you need to stop and rest before you are at exhaustion point.
  • You trust your instincts, when previously you may have doubted yourself. Healing can take us to a place where we trust ourselves completely.
  • Your comfort zone expands. You start to do things you previously wouldn’t do. Rebecca (age9) came to see me with her mum for help with her skin and food allergies. During the first appointment Rebecca would not speak to me and whispered her answers to mum who shared them with me. Mum told me Rebecca was very shy, she didn’t speak up in class at school or put her hand up to answer questions. Rebecca was given remedies to help her skin and digestive symptoms and was doing very in the following few weeks. At a follow up appointment, a very different child appeared. Rebecca was very keen to chat with me about everything! Mum also mentioned how Rebecca was now speaking up in class, engaging with her class mates and keen to answer questions in lessons. Rebecca’s comfort zone had expanded and was gaining confidence in herself.
  • Your energy feels balanced.
  • You start to feel … more you! This might sound a little strange. How can you feel more yourself? Have you have ever felt lost or suddenly at sea when you used to feel so sure about things? It can be a little like that. Many times, people share with me that they just don’t feel themselves, a little off, uncomfortable in their skin. Something may have happened, or a series of events occurred in life and you reaslise you are not yourself anymore. It leaves you confused and feeling lost.

    With the help of homeopathic remedies I then hear “you know I just feel more me! I don’t know how to explain it!”. They feel present and grounded.

    During a follow up appointment Evelyn described it like this. “It’s a bit like finding your favourite sweater in the cupboard after searching and searching. You know you’ve misplaced it and you just can’t quite put your finger on where it is. When you find it, you think “Of course! It was there all along”.”

Healing can be so much more than the lifting of symptoms.

We can lose sight of who we are and we need a little guidance back to ourselves.
Homeopathy can gently point us on our way.
