Well, nobody really lives completely happily ever after, at least not on this planet at this time in history, but we often see major changes in people’s lives and their health that we’d like to share! We like to share these stories with others for a number of reasons. First, it shows how powerfully homeopathic treatment can work while being safe and gentle at the same time. Sometimes the stories help us to teach something new about homeopathy. They also provide encouragement to those who are just starting treatment and haven’t yet seen the favorable results for which they are hoping. But most of all, it gives us a good excuse to brag!!! Just kidding, but we do love to celebrate people’s successes and good health with them. It’s a big part of our reason for doing what we do.
In this case, a middle-aged man came to us a little over a year ago. He had been in a serious auto accident several months earlier. At that time he had had a full neurological evaluation including MRI’s, etc. A closed head injury had been diagnosed by the neurologist. The treatment was conservative, basically resting and waiting.
He lived at a distance from our office. His wife, who was already a homeopathic patient at our office, had spoken with me by phone. Hypericum was recommended to help with decreased grip strength in his left hand. It had resolved quickly after the Hypericum. I recommended that he come in for full evaluation and further homeopathic treatment when he was able to come.
The case history revealed that most of the problems from the accident had pretty much resolved. He described a lifelong problem with short-term memory. He said it was horrible, and that he had to keep lists to remember things. “If I don’t write things down I lose the thought.” He frequently forgot things his wife asked him to do.
After his first remedy he felt really tired during that day. The month went by uneventfully. By the time of his first follow-up appointment a month later he said his memory was better, and that he could keep up better. He didn’t feel as overloaded mentally. He was still writing notes to himself to aid his memory, but said, “I’m remembering to remember.”
He continued to be absentminded over the next few months. His wife told him that he never really listened; he thought it was because he was distracted by his own thoughts.
I decided that he needed a different remedy and gave him a dose in the office. A deeply curative response followed. Six weeks later he reported that he was much more focused mentally and that his mental organization was much better. He felt great.
This lasted several months and then he suddenly started “forgetting everything again.” We repeated the remedy at that time and he felt better by the next day. At a follow-up visit several months later he said that his short and long term memory were better than before the accident. His creative thoughts were more focused. He rarely got headaches any more. (He used to get at least one headache per week.)
He had been asked to follow up in 4 months, but he was back one month later. He said he almost felt too good, and he was shocked and wondering what it meant. He went on to tell that he’d previously hated having lotion or cream on his hands or body, preferring to have his skin totally dry. Now this was gone and he said “my tactile ability has been going from nothing to everything!” His mind had gone from going 100 miles per hour to feeling serene. He thought what he’d previously called an orchestra in his head was really cacophony; now it really did feel orchestrated. He said he could now do things sequentially and not have to rush through the steps. “I can do more than I’ve ever done!” he shared. He felt as if there were synapses in his brain that weren’t previously connected, and now they were. It was such a change that it felt a little scary. He couldn’t understand why it was happening now, approximately 4 months following his last remedy. We discussed how deep healing from homeopathy can happen over a long time, especially when the healing is on the mental and emotional levels. He was reassured and has continued to do well.
I learned from this case, and I chose to share it here because I think it shows the ability of homeopathy to help people in powerful ways.
If you have a success story about homeopathy that you’d like to share, we’d love to hear it, and perhaps share it with the rest of our readers if we think it will help them.
