I've wanted to post here since the beginning of this thread, but didn't because I didn't have a constitutional remedy. A couple of months ago, I got one, along with my two boys. Panserbjorne is my homeopath. She figured out one for myself and my youngest, and helped support me with the one I picked out for my oldest
It has been an interesting road - kind of slow and not totally believing things were working, and then times they are clearly working.
I think part of it has been approaching this as embracing a rebalancing of our bodies, rather than a quick fix for our major acute issues (food allergies), when my attitude is here, that is when I feel good.
So what's been up??
Well honestly, my brain has been in other places, I focused hard on flower essences for a while and then cell salts for a long time. I've been amazed by both, and will one day write up some stories about them.
My oldest const remedy is thuja. He has been on it the longest, maybe since early spring? Ive seen the most improvement, albeit subtle, from him. He is my emotionally unstable guy, and I keep on being amazed by how even he has gotten and mature. I know part of it is with the use of nutritional therapy and flower essences, but I know the remedy is working. There have been times that he has accidentally been exposed to his allergens and either he certainly has not had a reaction, his reaction has been subtle enough for me to question it, or his reaction has been just skin deep (rash) rather than full emotions. I have not tried, nor wish to at the time, to give him a full load of an allergen.
For my youngest and I, I've just had to chant slow and steady. The thing is I've seen some cool things with myself. After a really scary first 16 weeks of pregnancy (major blood loss several times), I've had an absolutely glorious pregnancy. I know it can't be all attributed to my remedy. I know more about nutrition - no itchy skin (not eating corn), no stretch marks (high zinc), much lessened issues with leg cramps (more mag, and cell salts), emotions more stable (adrenal support), physical comfort (chiro). That said, at 39 weeks, I sometimes still forget I'm pregnant. I think it has been a combo of the above measures and my remedy (sepia).
I'm not sure about the changes within my youngest (he is arnica), except maybe he is more stable? He is a pretty easy going kid. He had a failed food trial a couple of days ago, and although it did get emotional, it only took about 24 hours for it to go away.
What has been interesting is that we are seeing a reduction and changes in our moles. I have a very prominent one at the back of my neck which I've had since early teenage years. It is getting smaller, along with a couple of others. One developed on my youngests' face early summer, and it has changed for the better. My guess is that some important internal changes are going on.
Recently, now that my brain is so focused on pregnancy, I've stopped problem solving with cell salts and remedies, but have noticed that an increased usage of our constitutional remedies, have really helped with our fall illnesses (which we've had quite a few of ).
OMG - I wrote a book. Just wanted to share, and thought it would be interesting to put it here publicly.
