Why Homeopathy? By a chance comment from a friend I discovered Homeopathy. I didn’t pursue changing my life to become a homeopath. Homeopathy found me, I was ill with Diabetes Insipidus (a more unusual form of diabetes it affects the pituitary gland. My pituitary stem was growing) and I was also suffering from depression. This lead down the route of hospitals, endless tests, brain scans and medications but I wasn’t recovering. It felt like a life sentence. Doctors told me I would have to take drugs for the rest of my life. There was no cure and they didn’t know why I had developed the problem.
There wasn’t much about my life that worked for me or that I enjoyed, it was a daily slog to get through the day. A friend suggested Homeopathy it had worked for her. I didn’t act on it straight away but on a day I felt really ill and desperate, I rang the Homeopath on the third attempt instead of putting the phone down I waited for the phone to be answered.
Then my journey back to health began I was told it’s not a miracle cure, but if you really want to get well you can turn this around. This was a WOW moment for me, I had some hope for the first time in a long time. So I made an appointment, I was anxious and excited about this new opportunity to get back to health. Homeopathy was unknown to me all those years ago, what was it about? It was about restoring balance to all of me, not just to my body but to my whole life it was a different way at looking at illness, to empower myself, rather than feeling a victim of this illness and of life in general.
My daily routine with the Diabetes Insipidus was drinking at least 20 to 30 pints of water a day (you cannot quench the extreme thirst), as the kidneys do not hold fluids; as you can imagine that was very impractical especially when outside the house when drinking that amount of water, but I had 3 small children so I had no choice, but very slowly with homeopathy and a better way of understanding life, body, mind and spirit, my health started to improve.
Finally taking control of my life I made changes. It wasn’t a miracle cure it took time to get to a point where I felt well, and NORMAL and I was drinking a normal amount of water a day.
My life became worth living again, I wanted others to know about homeopathy, and as a consequence I decided to train as a Homeopath. Now I have been a Homeopath for 12 years, I am constantly reminded of those dark days of my illness with new patients who arrive with no hope, who think their lives are over and feel just like me that they are living a prison sentence.
