During your in-depth homeopathic interview, we will explore the subtle nuances of your mental and emotional qualities. Homeopaths refer to our internal structures, our unique ways of perceiving the world and our relationship with it, as our ‘delusions’. Delusions are inbuilt constructs conditioned by of our education, society, life-story along with many other factors. They are often so deep within us that we are unaware of them. It is through the lens of these delusions that we interpret the world and they often the cause harmful emotions, tensions and conflicts within us.
Our intention is to identify these internal patterns and, in the vast world of nature, find an element of a similar resonance, with which we will stimulate a transformation through the well known principle, similia similibus curantur . Cure happens from inside out in a gentle, natural way. Not only do patients symptoms improve but they often feel more energetic, and on a deep level more in tune with themselves. It is the opposite effect to antidepressants which ‘numb’ the patients to their own feelings.
In my experience Homeopathy can be more effective than talking therapies, although the combination of both can enhance each other’s benefit. Our rational mind can change our behaviours but does not have full capacity to shift the way we feel inside. Emotional life is much deeper and too ineffable for our rationality to be able to have full grasp over it.
By bringing a refined energetic impulse to our system, homeopathy can be transformative in ways that never ceases to surprise me. I have known patients who, after years of high-dose antidepressants, finally feel a cloud lifting after just weeks after taking a remedy. I have witnessed patients with psychotic tendencies become able to go back into the swing of life and take up employment after years of living on the side-lines.
Of all the conditions that homeopathy can help with, mental health is often the most rewarding to treat.
