In sharing my path of discovery, I share my passion for homeopathy and how it led to tissue salts. A journey, through which, I was able to see the human being, as a complex, biological and energetic being. It was through this complexity, that I wished to find the simplicity, and a desire for all to take on the powerful thought form, of creating and being health. The health that comes from nurturing and loving ones own being…. body, mind and spirit.
I became a Naturopathic Doctor first, but became interested in Homeopathy during my training to become an ND, as it is one of our modalities that we study.
I found it got to the root cause of disease…. In a way that was profound and direct, especially if a disease was caused by a mental emotional conflict… as many are. I found it was safe, swift, and curative, removing the subconscious belief that started the illness.
I fell in love with Homeopathy when we went to study it in India during my second year of Naturopathic Medicine. I saw case after case, cured with this wonderful medicine. And wanted to master how to use it. And so after graduating as a Naturopathic Doctor, I studied for 2 more years to become a homeopath as well.
During my training to become a homeopath, one of the groups of remedies that we learned about are tissue salts, or Cell salts. I learned about them, from an Indian Homeopath who used them almost exclusively to treat all illness, with great success.
This intrigued me; I knew then that this would be a knowledge that I could pass on to my patients. I could teach them how to use them, for many conditions. Many could treat themselves, their family, loved ones, pets, …There are only 12 tissue salts and so considerably simpler than homeopathy with some 2000 or more remedies. And so, they are easier to use!
Although homeopathy; of higher potencies will act deeply, swiftly and curatively there is considerable knowledge needed to pick the correct remedy. I follow the principals of classical homeopathy, in which one remedy is used to treat the individual as a whole, often taking 1-3 hours to come up with the remedy that will treat the person as an individual…wonderful, beautiful, and treats the cause. But it involves considerable, skill, time and effort, and if you miss…. nothing happens.
I found, that for this reason, it can be quite frustrating for a mother home in the middle of the night, attempting to treat a child with a cough or cold.
As a result, when I go out to speak about homeopathy and teach, I always talk about cell salts. They are homeopathy, but there are only 12, so it is simple.
In my practice I use cell salts for many pathologies, and I teach my patients to use them … to treat acute’s such as colds, coughs, fever, sore throats, urinary tract infections, menstrual cramps, diarrhea, and constipation, as well as many chronic diseases such as asthma, osteoporosis, diabetes, skin diseases, anemia, insomnia, ADHD, and high blood pressure ….as you will see, they can be used to treat almost anything. It is a very empowering knowledge: to have 12 bottles, and to know how to combine to treat yourself, and your family.
