Emotions and Staphysagria

For the second time in as many months, I’ve had occasion to use a very popular remedy called, Staphysagria. This remedy is famous for physical issues like Surgery, incisions, having been cut, or injured.

It is a remedy quite famous for the emotional effects of physical and emotional harm to a victim. It is the number one remedy For Urinary tract infection with burning, from catheter, or the new bride: especially after humiliation.

Also, from the effects of Kidney stone blasting.

This remedy is amazing for healing “the whole person” during difficult times of injury and victimization.

I wanted to mention this today because, when I first began using homeopathy, I would kind of gloss over remedies that I didn’t feel really pertained to my world.

I thought that a remedy for urinary tract infections or emotional victims was not anything I had a need for.

Well, I was very wrong.  I now realize that this is one of those remedies that will probably be needed in just about everyone’s life at some time or other. 

For instance:

Staphysagria: A loving family begins a new business. Everything is going well, but there are so many changes in their lives. Longer hours, less family and prayer time. They find that they are only able to sit together for a meal on Sundays. Even the children are working beyond what should be expected of most adults. The parents become cranky and find that they are critical and demanding, but must keep up the stern attitude for fear that this new business venture will fail if they don’t elicit proper work habit from the entire family.

One day as the mother is correcting something that one her children did wrong, the child says, “You’re always yelling.” The mom, without skipping a beat, says, well just do it the way I tell you to; and you need to move more quickly!

So, without having listened to what her child was even saying, she just lectured more.

When she turned, the child had disappeared from the room. She called. No answer. She looked for the child. To no avail. She looked and looked, calling. Still, no answer. Then she saw the child hiding under a table. The child did not want to come out.

Suddenly she realized that she had literally driven the child into hiding by her hard, critical ways. It wasn’t that she was stern. It was because her own frustrations were being taken out on those she loved most! She was demanding without be loving and nurturing!

She had failed to see what this new lifestyle had done to the child. There was no balance, the child felt used and abused without comfort for their efforts (they felt victimized).

This mother, whom the child loved dearly, had actually been abusing the child’s trust and destroying their sense of comfort and safety.

What a horrible realization for this mother. (But God is good, realization is a gift, even though it can be hurtful) She gave the child a dose of Staphysagria 200c. The child immediately smiled and from that moment on, both child and mother were more content and open with their feelings. They were able to talk and work through the difficult times that they were going through.

Staphysagria: you wake one morning, your mood is ok, you know that there is a full agenda today and you already feel pressed for time. Your left eye is twitching with no other symptoms of illness or an impending cold? Hmm? Gosh, this eye is bothering me.

So, what is my real issue? Stress. I can’t seem to ever catch up on everything that others expect of me. (I am a victim of demand)…..one dose of Staphysagria 30c or 200c will alleviate the twitch and calm the mind feeling so used by those demanding of your time and attention.

Staphysagria: all families go through difficult times. Words can be exchanged, hurtful things said or not said that impact everyone.

It is “How” each person is affected that we need to look at. The Staphysagria person will feel like they are the “VICTIM,” they will use words like, I was betrayed, they just use me, I’m not really loved, I’m just used.

Ailments from shame, punishment, vexation and suppressed anger. Was insulted: being too dignified to fight, subdued his wrath and went home sick, trembling and exhausted.

It’s during times like this that the mind will be so hurt, it will throw symptoms out like retained urine, burning and aching in the kidney region, twitching eye, and more.

So many different symptoms can all point to the remedy called Staphysagria, if they “feel” they have been used, abused or made the victim.

No other remedy has the ability to heal the whole person, feeling victimized, like Staphysagria.

Any Ailments caused by or accompanied by a sense of violation with resentment: humiliation, embarrassment, bullied, offended, yelled at: physical/ sexual abuse: especially with suppression of anger-seething inside: deep guilt, shame. Gets testy, throws tantrums.

Think of Staphysagria!

May God Bless You and Yours,

Emotional Healing With Homeopathy

I was reminded today about the importance of Emotion.

The deepest part of man and who he is…is expressed by emotion. Laughter, tears, anger, hugs, a kiss, even a smile helps us to express our emotions; what we are feeling and how we want to convey these feelings to others.

Emotion is a gift. It is a gift from our Good Lord that allows us the physical expression of our feelings.

And feelings of course are bodily expressions of what has already been processed in the mind.
As the mind processes all internal and external stimuli, it assesses its own health, vitality, hunger, pain, etc…the mind is in a constant scan mode for all things affecting it…A smile from another person, or a frown for instance. It must decide in a micro moment how it is to handle being separated from a parent or sibling. How it is going to handle being cold or wet, what to do when bullied or left behind. The mind processes all stimuli quickly and then throws to the body it’s decision as to how it wants the body to respond. It throws the body symptoms. Symptoms are a form of communication between the mind and the body.

This one of a kind response (Symptom) is determined by the personality of the person, his upbringing which incorporates his morality, his determination, his fortitude and other such virtues or weaknesses.

You see, our natural inclinations and weaknesses are the landing zone for the symptoms which the mind throws externally. A symptom is the only way that the mind has to convey what needs to be addressed, so as to help it heal any parts needing to be healed.

So, when a little girl suddenly develops bright blue veins around her eyes and temple area…step back and try to see the whole picture. She’s 3, it probably not  high blood pressure….oh! could it be that she is suppressing her sorrow for her missing twin?
A dose of Ignatia will quickly help her mind to relax and dissipate the sorrow of her loss.

You see when an emotion is suppressed, for any reason; whether because it’s not socially acceptable to cry or throw something…or when fear of your surroundings or of others keeps one from expressing your emotion…the mind must quickly decide how to ask for help, so it throws out symptoms.

When we learn to understand these symptoms, we will be able to use homeopathy more efficiently.

Aconite: Shock and Fear; patient will be found to say, “Am I going to die?” or “I’m dying!”
 I had one client whose needed remedy was Aconite, but I, as an inexperienced homeopath was fooled by her language for a time, when the main theme of her case was, “I’m tough, and I’m not afraid of anything!” Like a Homonym being the opposite of a word can lead us to understand the meaning of that which is being described., so too…spontaneous denial (unprovoked questioning) of a known sensation or strong rubric, can actually lead us to the correct remedy.

Arnica: Shock: No fear of death, but actual injury or trauma that may cause the body to progress into shock.

Arsenicum: This remedy is wonderful when there is an anxiousness with fear. The fear may not be expressed as fear, but the anxiety in situations of change or during times of loss of health or material goods may call for this remedy.

Coffea: Excitement, inability to sleep due to mind activity and excitement.

Colocynthis: Anger with indignation; vomiting better bending forward.

Cuprum: Loss of spouse or lifestyle can cause this kind of reaction; cramps in muscles, twitchings, esp. toes, fingers, can indicate anger and inflexibility.

Gelsmium, Causticum: Any emotion that cause severe trembling.

Ignatia: Acute sorrow; causing a hysterical reaction; whether that symptom is suppressed to affect the body physically with, say “Blue” Veins around the eyes, twitching, etc. or hysterical sobbing….any strange or hysterical emotion caused by grief.

Lycopodium, Silicea: Sweating hands, fear of speaking in front of others, or what others think of them.

Natrum muraticum: Chronic grief, causing deep sadness.

Staphysagria: A very important remedy when the emotion has been suppressed due feelings of embarrassment or humiliations…A young adult was relieved of great sadness with a dose of Staphysagria 20. His sorrow stemmed from being thrust into an unfamiliar world of business, with little training; and even though the tasks were being met, he felt inadequate and “abused” by those to whom he looked for guidance and comradery.”

Stramonium: Fear. The kind of fear that leaves the child with wild eyes and a frozen in fear look.

These are just a few of the remedies that are wonderful to address the symptoms that different Emotions can convey upon the body. These remedies can be given so that the body can more easily find balance during times of stress or high emotion.

I’ve taken cases in which the client needed a remedy for shock or grief that had happened years ago; and was still unresolved. One such case was caused by an event from nearly 50 years prior. It is amazing what steps the body goes through in an attempt to scream for help. Everything from Heartburn, Hernias, even Heart Attacks can be warning signs that the mind sends out as symptoms of suppressed Emotion.

So, when a situation arises, please don’t hesitate to give a wonderfully helpful homeopathic remedy, as soon as possible.

So many chronic conditions can be avoided when an acute remedy is given to soothe the mind and calm the symptoms…

I had a friend say to me, “ I will never attend a funeral or a wedding without Ignatia again!
