Homeopathy works on symptom similar. The more information you gave give your homeopath regarding your unique set of symptoms the more accurate the remedy picture becomes. Symptoms are as unique as the people that have them. Sometimes we fail to notice exactly what those symptoms are. The more we take notice of what is really going on the easier it is to get the remedy that matches the symptoms. And that makes a big difference. This applies to anything that is “diagnosed” or “labelled” as a condition the symptoms will be different for every person even if that “diagnosis” or “label” is the same. It is the symptoms that give us the best clues on how to really heal.
Take a cough for example, everyone gets them from time to time and there are lots of general remedies for coughs, but as we are always looking for the symptom similar, the more you can describe how the cough “feels” to you the more accurate the remedy picture will be.
There are a thousand questions that will help to make the remedy picture clearer.
How does it feel?
Is there anything that makes it worse?
Is there anything that makes it better?
What was happening when you started getting the symptoms?
Is the cough dry?
Is it a hacking cough?
Do you have a sore throat?
Does it hurt to swallow?
Are you feeling hot or cold with it?
Is it worse at night?
Do you cough until you vomit?
Do you get a headache with it?
Do certain foods aggravate it?
Are you coughing anything up? If so what colour and texture is it?
Are you more sensitive to the cold?
Are you sneezing?
Does your chest hurt when you cough?
Are there any noises in your chest when you cough?
And these are just a starting point from the answers you give there are more questions, all with the intent of getting the best match. This applies to anything that is diagnosed or labelled as a condition the symptoms will be different for every person even if the diagnosis or label is the same. It is the symptoms that give us the best clues on how to really heal.
