“Health is more than simply the absence of disease. It involves a sense of well being, of feeling good, of being in balance and in harmony, that is hard to dislodge. It is, above all, the ability to respond appropriately to stress.” Miranda Castro
Our mental and emotional health is an integral part of our well-being – it affects how we think, feel and act! It also determines how we cope with stress, relate to others and make life choices.
How many times have you felt that you have never recovered from an “emotional experience” or feel unable to let go of an unpleasant memory and move on? Perhaps it was a loss or grief, an argument with a friend, after losing your job or after relationship difficulties?
Or maybe you feel overwhelmed and stressed out with the constant juggling and demands of life and your mood swings from anger and anxiety to sadness and disappointment
Whatever the reason, if you are struggling with strong emotions and are unable to find a resolution, it will influence your choices, decisions and actions and can ultimately compromise your health.
We tend to downplay emotional events in our lives as insignificant and only recognise that our mental and emotional health is suffering when we receive a “physical alert” such as headaches or flare ups of chronic conditions.
It’s like the red warning light blinking in your car telling you that something is wrong. You can ignore it and drive on hoping for the best or take out the fuse and bulb so you don’t have to be reminded about it constantly – either way the problem hasn’t gone away.
Similarly while at times conventional medicine can bring much sought after relief for emotional challenges, if the cause is not dealt with the emotions can be pushed into a dormant position without true healing and resolution.
Homeopathy is unique in its approach to emotional healing. The person is treated holistically and seen as a “whole” rather than fragmented parts. We are interested to know about your physical, emotional and mental health.
The homeopathic consultation offers a safe non-judgemental space to discuss emotional challenges and the healing process is facilitated by using homeopathic remedies to help release emotional blocks and soften painful scars and memories. It can also help with the physical symptoms surrounding the issues such as insomnia, digestive problems, pain and recurrent illnesses.
With greater insight an emotional shift makes room for a new perspective, a renewed optimism and a greater sense of well-being.
