“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”, as Andy Williams stated in his very popular Christmas Song in 1963. It really is an exciting time of year, with the lights, the music, the food, the family visits, and did I mention the food?!. It’s also can be the most stressful time of the year! The year comes to a close, and we begin preparing for the following year. It can be a sad time of year for many people who might be alone for the holidays. It can also be a financially draining time of the year, which is a huge cause of stress. There are many wonderful ways to combat stress, including breathing techniques, exercise, diet and sleep, but did you know that homeopathic treatment is one of the best ways to help you cope with stress? It’s the one thing I hear from most of my patients after the correct homeopathic prescription, “My life hasn’t changed, and the pressures are all still there, but my ability to cope with it has changed immensely. I’m much stronger in the face of it all”. Homeopathy has the ability to strengthen a person’s entire system in a way that makes them feel stronger not just physically, but also mentally. Homeopathic Treatment is about finding out each individuals stress triggers, and how their particular body reacts to stress, and then stimulating their system in a way that works with their unique susceptibilities. For instance, I might treat one person who’s arthritis flares up whenever they get overwhelmed with tasks that need completing, and another person who becomes irritable and gets headaches when there are financial pressures. It’s tailor-made treatment for a person’s mind-body susceptibilities.
