It is possible to transform your life — Sylvia’s story

“Homeopathy and Chinese medicine are two possible alternative approaches to disease that do not treat the disease as an enemy and therefore do not create new diseases.” — Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

by Ben Ta’ati — 

After six years of insomnia, Sylvia, a 56 year-old-mother of four, was on the verge of losing hope. She had lost her job, become severely depressed and anxious, and now was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which left her partially disabled. Sylvia was also suffering from hot flashes and symptoms of menopause.

None of the prescription medications she had tried over the years seemed to help. In fact, all of them made her feel worse. She had become so hopeless that on a couple of occasions she’d considered committing suicide.

When I first saw Sylvia at our clinic, she appeared extremely tired and depressed. The aches and pains of her fibromyalgia were keeping her from walking normally. At that time, she reported having severe insomnia — most nights she could not sleep at all, and other nights she would collapse from exhaustion for only an hour or two. In addition, she suffered from frequent and intense hot flashes.

Over time, Sylvia continued to become more isolated from friends and family. She found it difficult to interact and play with her cherished grandchildren.

Treating the whole person

In the initial consultation, I spent three hours with Sylvia, studying and understanding her emotional and physical symptoms. This, in turn, helped us to select a remedy that was intended to address the totality of Sylvia’s symptoms, at both an emotional and physical level.

It is important to note that in classical homeopathy each person is treated uniquely, based on the combination of all symptoms. In other words, very seldom do we find individuals with the exact same combination of mental, emotional and physical symptoms and, as such, each homeopathic remedy prescribed is different, but the results are just as effective.

The cure process

Within the first week of using the homeopathic remedy, Sylvia said that her sleep had significantly improved. Within two months of her initial visit, she reported a sense of calmness and well-being, and the aches and pains in her lower back, elbows and knees had improved so much that she started taking short walks in the morning.

By her second follow-up visit, Sylvia had experienced so much improvement that, for the first time in six years, she had resumed her two-mile walks. She was no longer suffering from the aches and pains of fibromyalgia, and her hot flashes had been significantly reduced to a point that she had forgotten about them.

Within the first seven months of homeopathic treatment, Sylvia’s entire life was transformed. She went from being extremely depressed and suicidal, to becoming very active and passionate about life again. She now spends a lot of time with her grandchildren. She and her husband started a new business, and she is actively involved with her community, teaching Sunday school classes and volunteering.

Imagine the outcome of Sylvia’s life had she not tried homeopathy. She would still be on different types of antidepressant, hormone and pain medications. Considering that in America now, according to the American Cancer Society, one in three women will develop cancer, it is not too difficult to imagine that Sylvia’s health would have been headed for disaster.

Life transformed

When we experience a state of perfect health, our bodies do not cry out for help through the expression of symptoms, nor do our thoughts and emotions weigh us down with negativity. Our experience becomes one of pure joy in the perfect pleasure of being. This is the optimal state for us to carry out our life purpose, unhampered by the restraints of illness. It is our true inheritance to achieve this state, which allows for one’s spirit to shine through us and guide us on our path.

Homeopathy’s transforming power enables us to achieve this state of health and harmony, removing many obstacles so that we may once again recognize our true selves, and with this recognition comes a sense of connection to something greater. It gives new meaning to our lives and transforms the routine of daily living into a grand adventure.

What you can expect of homeopathy

The results of a recent national survey of 11,165 people reveal that 85 percent of patients using homeopathy have had exceptionally good results. Additionally, patient satisfaction was reported as extremely high for 15 percent, very high for 44 percent and high for 40 percent.

Working with a purely classical homeopath to treat the whole you can be a life-changing experience. In the words of Gandhi, “Homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical and the most complete medical science.”
