I love homeopathy. It has been one of my greatest blessings (medically speaking) in my life, but I am most grateful for the healing this modality has brought to my children. In 2009, I started studying herbs, which is also another passion of mine, but no matter how hard I tried to apply the principles of healing with herbs, my son could not be healed.
He had asthma and horrible allergies. Eczema covered his arms and legs, and he had scabs that he would scratch until they bled - especially at night. I had a strong prompting that giving him the regular medicine that doctors prescribe (albuterol inhaler and steroids) would be disastrous for him and they were not to be used. This was a hugely contentious issue with my husband because he also suffers with asthma and allergies and didn’t want our son to suffer. I shared that I felt very strongly that our son should only use the rescue inhaler when absolutely necessary and under no condition was he supposed to be on any kind of medication. I knew that the medication would only mask the deeper issues within my son, and would drive the root problems more deeply into his body, creating more dysfunction and disease.
The herbs and energy healing we employed would help for a time and he would not suffer as severely. Then, out of the blue, he would escalate quite quickly to the point of struggling to breathe throughout the day. He would need inhaler treatments over and over. I could not figure out what was causing the escalation. I started to suspect that whenever my husband would give him inhaler treatments at night, it would actually trigger him to escalate more quickly. My husband thought I was crazy. However, it was the only thing that I could see that caused him to get worse, although it didn’t seem to make any sense.
My son kept getting worse, day by day, until he was pale and could not play anymore because he could hardly breathe. I was at a loss and heartbroken. I didn’t know what else to do. The Lord had been clear that western medicine was not the answer. But seeing him suffer was just horrible. I prayed for answers. My husband did not agree with my decision to avoid western medicine, but still respected it. He finally decided to fast and pray for guidance from God.
That day, he felt the impression to take our son to a clinic in another state that we had heard good things about. We did not know a great deal about homeopathy. I don’t even know if we knew that it was a homeopathic clinic. It was run by a medical doctor, who had been trained as a homeopath as well. It was very expensive and no insurance was accepted, although some of it we could submit to our insurance plan and be reimbursed.
One of the first things they did with our son, was test him for sensitivities to food, pollen, chemicals, and mold. It was soon apparent that he was suffering from reactions to almost everything around him. It was easier to list what he was NOT sensitive to, than to the things that caused him to react.
The food that he could eat were organic strawberries and apples (pesticides made him react), brown rice, oatmeal, kamut, carrots, celery, and onions. Those are most of the foods that I can recall that were safe for him to eat. He was allergic to most meats, the nightshade veggies (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, etc), citrus, lettuce and spinach, many different grains (rye, barley, wheat, etc), sugar, yeast, nuts, and all dairy. He was sensitive to almost everything else they tested for as far as chemicals and pesticides in foods, pollens in the air, dander in animals, and various strains of mold.
We also learned that my intuition had been correct. He was allergic to the albuterol in his inhaler. As my husband would give him a dose for difficulty breathing, his body would have an allergic reaction and quickly escalate to barely being able to breathe and then he would receive another treatment - this would cause a vicious cycle with no end in sight.
As it became apparent how dangerous this little boy’s world was, I wondered what on earth I was going to feed him! How was I going to keep him alive, let alone healthy, when almost everything that was around him caused him to have difficulty breathing?
Then I was introduced the miraculous world of homeopathy. At the clinic, they formulated drops with all the things that he was sensitive to and made his own personal remedies in the four areas - food, chemical, mold, pollen - and a specially made albuterol one, for his sensitivities to his inhaler.
I was still supposed to feed him all the food that he was sensitive to, but when he reacted I just had to give him one drop, and the reaction would stop. HUH? Seriously? One drop of this liquid would stop his breathing issues? It was miraculous! I no longer had to live in fear, worrying about my child ingesting something that could shut down his breathing! I could give him a drop and watch his body calm. Or better yet, I gave him the drops before he ate it, and then he didn’t have any issues at all!
I was also to give these drops to him 3 times a day, and as time progressed his body would stop viewing these foods and substances as dangerous and the reactions would stop all together.
There were also constitutional remedies that were given according to his own personality and physical/emotional symptoms.
I still believe in the power of herbs and nutrition, but when the body’s energy flow is so imbalanced and it recognizes wholesome things as dangerous, more serious medicine is needed. Homeopathy is that miracle medicine that heals from the inside out, and when the right remedy is chosen, the body can be returned to balance.
Today my son still has mild breathing issues, and uses the inhaler occasionally (a few times a week at most). Sometimes he can go for weeks with no inhaler use at all. He is able to tolerate almost any food. The only times he generally has breathing issues is when he eats food with a lot of preservatives and chemicals in them. He is no longer pale and lethargic, but a busy and active 11 year old who loves to jump on the trampoline with his siblings and loves to create and explore in the world around him.
