Did You Know a Fleeting Thought or a Close Call Can Affect Your Health?
Have you ever had a close call incident while driving? An animal jumps out in the middle of the road or someone almost hits you? Then a couple of weeks later, you come down with a cold, flu or some other acute symptoms? You may not have made a connection between the acute symptoms you experienced and the close call incident, but they were related.
This month to help illustrate my point, I’m sharing a few representative samples of calls I receive and in my consultation uncover past incidents with emotional impacts that are related to the “sick” symptoms. When the emotional incident is addressed along with the acute symptoms healing occurs quickly.
Have you Ever Gotten Sick After a Death in the Family?
A client calls telling me she is experiencing chills, backaches, and a fever. I recommend a homeopathic remedy for her acute symptoms. As I am talking with her, she tells me that her 35 year old cousin suddenly passed away a week ago. Based on that information, I had her take one dose of each of the homeopathic remedies: Aconite and Gelsemium for the effects of bad new, Ignatia Amara for the shock of the news and for grief, and Pulsatilla for the sadness she was feeling and for sadness she felt for what her aunt and uncle are going through.
It probably never crossed your mind, how a jolt of a fleeting thought or an incident can affect your overall health. These fleeting thoughts or jolts that you experience can cause you to have symptoms within a few hours to a couple of weeks down the road. And you may not have made any connection as to why or how you got sick.
Her Grandchild Breaks the Vase that has Been in the Family for Generations
My client consults with me about her throat. She tells me that her sore throat feels better with warm drinks and once she starts to talk. And she feels like there is something in her throat that she is swallowing over; like a lump. I recommend that she take a couple of doses of the homeopathic remedy Rhus Toxicodendron throughout the day.
As we talk, she tells me that her grandchildren were spending the weekend with her. She goes on to say that her grandson broke a vase that has been in the family for several generations from Yugoslavia. His sister was passing it over to him and he dropped it. She said the poor little thing started crying, and that she did not say a word to him about it she just comforted him and held in her own emotions. I responded; “that is it! You are swallowing over your emotions, that is why you feel like you are swallowing over a lump in your throat.” I had her take a dose of the homeopathic remedy Natrum Muriaticum, to release the emotions that she held back as she comforted her grandson. A few days later my client called to tell me how quickly her throat cleared up after the dose of Natrum Muriaticum and couple of doses of Rhus Toxicodendron.
Almost Choked to Death
Another client called me for a homeopathic consultation with a cough he has in his throat. I recommend the homeopathic cough remedy according to the symptoms he was exhibiting. He called back a few days later to tell me, his cough started to improve, but now is at a standstill. He feels like he has something stuck in his throat. I asked him a few questions about his cough and his responses did not match up with a homeopathic cough remedy. I kept coming up with the homeopathic remedy Natrum Muriaticum for something in his throat. I proceeded to ask him more questions to confirm the Natrum Muriaticum. I asked him if there was something, he needed to say to someone? “No”, he replied. I went on to ask him, “did you have anything that happened to you in the last couple of weeks?” That is when he went on to tell me he almost “choked to death.” He was eating dinner and a piece of meat got lodged in his throat and he had a hard time getting it out. His wife tried to do the Heimlich maneuver. It quickly came to him to take a big gulp of his water, which caused him to gag and dislodge the piece of meat.
I had him take a dose of Natrum Muriaticum, along with the homeopathic remedies Aconite and Gelsemium for the frightened feeling he had from choking. His cough cleared up the next day.
Quite often, my clients tell me they have acute cold, cough, flu like symptoms and when I trace it back to what started it, I commonly see a fleeting thought or incident triggered it.
Thought Someone Stole My Computer
Recently my husband and I left the house early one morning for an all-day outing. And when we came home, 9 hours later, the garage door was open. My husband forgot to close the garage door before we drove down the driveway. Well, I freaked out, thinking that someone could have gone into our house and stole our computers, TV, etc. My husband said to me “calm down, I don’t think anyone was here. We don’t live in that kind of a neighborhood.
I rushed into the house and didn’t see my work computer on the desk. I said to my husband “someone stole my computer.” What, he replied? “Yes, I don’t see my computer monitor in the room. I went back into the room and looked again. I was so freaked out at the time; that I didn’t realized my gray monitor blended in with the gray lamp next to it. I was so relieved to see my computer was still there.
Because I was so freaked out, I took a dose each of the homeopathic remedies Aconite and Gelsemium; for the effects of the bad news. This way, I avoided getting sick down the road from this scary event.
Common Homeopathic Remedies for Jolting Thoughts or Incidents
In most cases, you will need one of the following homeopathic remedies to address that jolting thought or incident that can cause symptoms later on.
- Aconite and Gelsemium – Fright, effects from bad news, anxiety
- Ignatia Amara – Shock from an incident, news (death), grief
- Natrum Muriaticum – Holding back emotions, grief
- Pulsatilla – Feeling sad, abandoned, lonely, death in the family
The next time you have a fleeting thought that jolts or an incident happen to you. Or even, if you or a loved one gets sick out of the blue and is not recovering like you ought to be. Think back to the last couple of weeks, to see if an incident happened that jolted you. And select the appropriate homeopathic remedy to address it.
Better yet, when a thought jolts you or an incident happens, take a homeopathic remedy right then; you never know what you could be preventing down the road.
