|HOMEOPATHY: DESCRIBING YOUR SYMPTOMS|
Over the past few weeks there have been several comments from patients concerning the telling of their symptoms. These have fallen into 2-3 distinct categories and I thought it would be useful to respond to these comments in the forum of this newsletter. One common response is along the lines of "I don't want to talk about my symptoms, that's whining". Whining implies that your symptoms are inconsequential, not worthy, or that the act of discussing them is childish or just complaining. The success of homeopathy depends on hard work. It's not easy to say what you feel, to look at the source of a problem, to recognize the patterns of behavior that underlie our dis-ease. But it can be very liberating to do so. When you dismiss your symptoms in this way you are missing out on an opportunity to actually understand what is going on.
Another comment I hear goes something like this "...I worked through that years ago in therapy, I don't need to go over that again." Appropriate counseling and psychotherapy can provide excellent tools for understanding oneself and changing maladaptive behavior. However, even if you are 100% successful in utilizing these methods, this doesn't necessarily mean that the trauma that underlies the patterns of behavior has been completely healed. By working with the homeopathic approach and truly seeing the roots of the unhealthy patterns of behavior we are empowered to actually get well. Not just on the superficial level, but on the deeper levels as well.
