Homeopathy for Teens

Reading Time: 13 minutes

Teenagers are going and growing through remarkable changes. Even the most vital bodies can benefit from support through this liminal space. Homeopathy is a gentle way to nourish and nurture your teenager.

While these remedies are ones to consider for your teen, consider them for you, too.

Mothering a teen can bring up all the old feelings and traumas we may have suppressed. We are not only mothering our teens, we are often remothering our teen selves during this transitional time.

Homeopathy for Caregivers: Cocculus Indicus

Reading Time: 5 minutes

We’re nearing the end of the third week of acute symptoms for the kiddos in our house. Some of the symptoms (or kids) have needed close attention from mom and homeopathic care.

Cocculus Indicus, however, was for me rather than the kiddos. It’s a remedy to think of when you are feeling the effects of worrying about or nursing your loved ones.

Last week after being awake with my sleepless daughter for two nights, and well into the second week of kids being symptomatic, I couldn’t settle in to sleep despite feeling absolutely exhausted in mind and body. One dose of 30C Cocculus, and I fell fast asleep.

Cocculus […]

Understanding Your Symptoms: A Homeopathic Perspective

Reading Time: 10 minutes

Symptoms are the language of the body. Healing asks us to become fluent in this language.

We so often judge or evaluate our symptoms as bad. While I know it can feel like symptoms are setbacks or obstacles that get in our way, the truth is our symptoms are here for us. They are the way our body communicates with us.

When we better understand how and why our bodies create symptoms, we can relate to them in new and empowering ways. And when we shift our relationship with our symptoms, we can move through them with greater ease, less suffering, and more healing.

So, when symptoms feel like a setback, […]

Homeopathic Remedies for Summer

Reading Time: 16 minutes

In our household summer brings a lot of time outdoors. This means insect stings and tick bites, sunburns, rashes, and more. Homeopathic remedies are my go-to for addressing these often minor, acute disturbances, because homeopathy is free from unintended side effects and it doesn’t suppress the body’s innate, and critical, healing responses.

I shared some of the top homeopathic remedies for summer on my Instagram feed over the last few weeks. I’ve since compiled all of these remedies into one downloadable and printable Summer Remedy Guide. It covers seven common summer concerns and the remedies you might consider for each one. You can read about […]

Strengthening Vitality with Homeopathic Tissue Salts

Reading Time: 10 minutes

The vitality of the body is, in part, dependent on the presence of essential building blocks of cells. W.H. Schüssler, a German physician of the late 1800’s, identified twelve inorganic mineral salts common to all bodily cells and tissues. He asserted that imbalances in these critical salts contribute to dis-ease, and that health and vitality can be restored and strengthened with minute doses of the deficient salt.

Low potency tissue salts are homeopathically prepared, so they’re gently supportive, safe, and free of side-effects. As such, they are useful for at-home prescribing. Think about using them to nurture vitality through colds, heartburn, bloating, muscle or […]

How Acute Disease Strengthens Our Vitality

Reading Time: 9 minutes

Eighteen days ago I declared rest in an Instagram post, unaware of the depth of rest that was to come. That night my son showed symptoms of an acute viral illness (yes, that one). We’ve been hunkered down since, taking our turns responding to this stressor.

My body initially responded with aches, chills, head pain, fever, and fatigue—all uncomfortable symptoms. And despite my discomfort, I celebrated these life-affirming expressions. (I also cursed them at times when I just felt over it all).

I celebrated because acute diseases hold immense healing potential. They can strengthen our vitality, and in fact, it is part of our divine design.

But we need to remember a […]

Empowered with Homeopathy

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Empowered with Homeopathy

What is it to be empowered? What does it mean for you?

I feel most empowered when:

  • I perceive that I have options & the freedom to choose.
  • I feel safe & my options feel safe.
  • I am connected to my Vital Self & I make choices aligned with this part of Self. (Rather than making choices from a place of fear or scarcity).

Homeopathy allows me to choose a safe and supportive way to nurture health and healing for myself and my family.

And it aligns with the part of me that intends to nourish my (our) innate healing capacity.

I feel empowered with homeopathy. And, I’m here […]

Revolutionary Healing Part 6: Barriers & Bridges to Healing

Reading Time: 8 minutes

I recently shared that I’m on the other side of a number of months of uncomfortable symptoms that were, ultimately, an invitation to remember my wholeness on a deeper level. While that’s true, this is ALSO true: my symptoms were an invitation to take an honest look at what’s connecting me to my healing and what’s getting in the way of it.

Last September I started my third year of homeopathic training. It was my first year of full-time school alongside conscious parenting, birthing a business, nourishing a marriage, healing, and more—all while witnessing the biggest collective trauma of my lifetime. It […]

Revolutionary Healing Part 3: The Power of Partnership

Reading Time: 12 minutes

In the early stages of my healing, I oriented myself toward fixing my dis-ease and toward the belief that I was not OK. So I scurried from one practitioner or doctor to another, certain that one of them would confirm my belief with a diagnosis and fix what (I thought) broke in me. Many did offer me a plan or a protocol, and for a time I thought that if I ate their diet, took their supplements, followed their steps, or bought their program, I’d be well.

This is what I unconsciously sought then—someone to do the heavy lifting for me, to give me an […]

Womxn to Know: My Sisters in Healing

Reading Time: 8 minutes

There are so many ways to introduce this blog post, so many things to say about WHY this post is important. I’ll keep it short and simple, though, so that you can invest your time in getting to know these womxn—my sisters in healing—who I’m inspired by right now.

My inner fire ignites when I’m connecting with womxn who are committed to authenticity, growth, and healing. I know that, while my healing begins within me, it expands in relationship with others. We need each other on our healing journeys. One of the magical things about these healing connections is that they are rarely one-way. Whether we’re seeking support or offering it, […]
