Anxiety and Depression

Posted by on Sep 30, 2017 in Blog Posts | 0 comments

 

Most of us suffer from bouts of anxiety and sadness during the course of our lives.  Traumatic events like chronic stress or the death of a family member can result in anxiety, sadness or even depression.

However, constant or chronic anxiety or depression is different. These states of mind can paralyze you and spiral into further health problems.  They may be away from the traditional support provided at home, some may be under increasing pressures to perform, others may react

Students who are suffering health issues as a result of experiencing extreme stress who are not receiving mental health support are falling through the cracks of the Canadian health system.   There are many reasons why there has been a large growth in the demand for mental health services on campuses across Canada.

[mention Toronto Star series and site some McMaster woman.

A June 17th Globe and Mail article “Canadian students feel stress, anxiety, have suicidal thoughts, survey reveals “.   Site bits from this as well.

Homeopathic treatment is well suited to address stress induced anxiety and depression  that you just can’t seem to overcome.  It addresses the root causes of these health issues and helps you bring balance back to your life. Homeopathic remedies are safe, non-toxic and have no side effects.

There are alternative ways to help you meet the stresses of today. Please feel free to visit my webpage, homeopathcarol.ca or email me at caroljones@homeopathcarol.ca to find out more.

MIGRAINES!!!!! YES THIS IS HOW BIG THEY CAN FEEL!!!

Posted by on Sep 15, 2017 in Blog Posts | 0 comments


The world seems to stop when you have one. They can be triggered by many things yet no one behaviour seems to minimize their impact.  The most consistent thing I hear from patients is that sometimes something helps and sometimes it doesn’t, e.g. lying down in a dark room.

What causes migraines?

The better question is what doesn’t?  Hormonal changes, certain foods,  stress, allergies, and weather can all trigger a migraine headache.

How can homeopathic treatment help?

By treating migraines preventively. Homeopathic remedies strengthen your immune system to lessen and then prevent those  “triggers” from creating your migraine. Patients with visual disturbances, nausea, numbness, heightened sensitivities and debilitating pain find a decrease in intensity and frequency after homeopathic treatment.

Could I become headache free?

Yes you could.  Patients have reduced and even eliminated medications.  You won’t have the same reaction to previous “triggers” and responses and your immune system will be stronger to meet stresses and the day-to-day pressures of life.

Skin Issues…

…are not always just a physical problem!  Stress and emotional issues can bring on skin troubles.  From acne, hives and fungal issues to chronic eczema, people suffer significant limitations in their life due to skin problems–  not just itchy dry skin!

Besides the work required to cover-up or treat the skin ailment symptoms, patients have sadly told me of the social embarrassment of skin ailments.  It can result in the withdrawal from social events or a limitation in participation (e.g. swimming, sports). This can take a toll on personal esteem and confidence, creating further stress.

In my treatment of skin disorders, I have found that there are typically other health issues “under the skin” that are creating the life-limiting skin symptoms a patient is experiencing.

I have treated a wide variety of skin complaints– acne in all ages, psoriasis, hives, blotching and swelling as well as ringworm. All of these patients had other health issues which were addressed at the same time. Homeopathy treats all of the health issues together.

What is underneath skin ailments?

There are many theories and causes behind various skin ailments. For acne, whether adult or teen, hormonal issues can create one of the most common skin complaints. Allergic skin reactions can accompany food allergies, bee stings, and environmental allergies.

How can Homeopathic remedies help?

Besides providing relief in lessening the severity of the skin symptoms, homeopathic treatment can deal with the underlying chronic conditions resulting in the skin ailment.  Also treatment strengthens the immune system which means when the stress occurs again, it will be much less likely to result in intense skin symptoms.

Homeopathic remedies can heal both periodic and chronic skin conditions. Even if the condition is part of larger chronic issues such as hormonal changes. Yes! even adult acne.

Allergies

Posted by on Jul 10, 2017 in Blog Posts | 0 comments

Ahhhh it’s allergy season!  Many people have seasonal allergies but there are also many other kinds of year-round allergies. Food allergies, environmental allergies, drug allergies, and so on.  And with each type, there are different expressions. Respiratory ailments, skin issues, blurry and red eyes, fogginess, headaches, fatigue–  all possible symptoms as a result of allergies.

Allergies are among the most common of all medical disorders.

What is an allergy?

Allergies are abnormal reactions of the immune system that occur in response to otherwise harmless substances. Normally, the immune system responds to foreign particles by producing specific proteins called antibodies.  Sometimes an allergic reaction is triggered by everyday substances such as pollen, dust, and animal danders.

Most types of allergic reactions produce an overabundance of histamine which results in some of the symptoms like the ones above.  Typically this results in the standard practice of taking an anti-histamine, like Claritin for example.

What can I do besides taking an over the counter anti-histamine? 

Supplements (Vitamin C) and herbs/plants (stinging nettles)  can help allergic symptoms temporarily.  Over the counter medication can typically wear off with frequent, repeated use becoming less effective. Patients tell me that besides having to take more medication and higher doses, there are significant side-effects which cause them additional health issues.

After taking a homeopathic remedy, patients report a decrease in symptoms, and for chronic long-term allergy sufferers, they report a significant reduction in the intensity of their symptoms.  And no side effects!!

In addition to major symptoms becoming milder,  the length of time of suffering from the next years’ seasonal allergies also shortens considerably.  For those with chronic year-round allergies, you can go back to eating certain foods or find yourself able to tolerate your roommate’s cat!

Please feel free to email me at caroljones@homeopathcarol.ca with any questions about the homeopathic treatment of allergies.  There is a remedy for everyone!

 

Insomnia

Posted by on Jun 12, 2017 in Blog Posts | 0 comments

“Why can’t I sleep?”

This is a question I get asked a lot. Besides eating too late and the effects of alcohol on sleeping rhythms, there is a major cause of sleep disorders—stress and anxiety.

Many patients I see have tried various supplements, behavioural changes (e.g. meditation, relaxation exercises) and even sleep medications. The benefits from these options can be limited and in some instances can create side effects adding to client’s health complaints.

What is beautiful about homeopathic treatment is that it treats the underlying stress and anxiety that can result in sleep disorders, and it doesn’t result in any side effects.

Insomnia is one of the most common and prevalent health complaints. It creates wide-ranging physical and mental impacts. Sleep experts say that persistent insomnia can lead to mood changes and lack of energy.  Additionally, insomnia can make you feel tense and nervous about your inability to sleep.

Generally, the stresses and anxieties we experience in our lives can result in many mental and physical expressions—the inability to sleep well being one. Homeopathic treatment will address all of the expressions of a patient’s stress together. No need for separate treatments or medication.

Take charge of your stress!
