Getting to the root of the problem
This is what all forms of natural medicine try to do. It is important to do this rather than palliating or using a sticking plaster approach to the problem (such as Tranquillisers, Prozac etc.).
Getting back into control vs. hanging on by your fingernails
By using Homeopathy and various other techniques, it is possible for people to regain control of their lives, rather than feeling that they are in a carriage behind 6 runaway-horses, which is how many people often report that they feel.
With the use of carefully chosen homeopathic medicines it is possible to treat long standing behavioural patterns such as in people who are habitual worriers, for example - even if the problem has run in the family for generations. We can change 'the sort of person we are'!
To use the analogy of the darts board: the idea with homeopathic remedies is to pull all sorts of different people back into the bulls-eye, so that they are once again balanced and centred, in control, happy, creative and healthy on all different levels, spiritual, mental, emotional and physical.
It is also possible, while using homeopathic medicines, to use support remedies such as the Bach Flower Remedies and especially the Rescue Remedy. Also, Lavender Oil, one of the aromatherapy oils can be used externally and can be very useful to help you relax. There are also some specialised homeopathic 'Anti-Stress' drops which can be taken, which help turn mountains into molehills by calming the part of the brain that becomes super-sensitive in times of stress.
Learning to Take Control
It is obvious that to simply take homeopathic medicines without doing anything else to attempt to deal with the reasons for stress will result in treatment taking much longer than it needs to. It's like trying to drive a car with the hand brake on. During a homeopathic consultation, besides taking obvious health information, the homeopath wants and needs to get to know you as a person, to be able to understand how best to help you to help yourself. Often during a session, some simple techniques can be learnt to help you to begin to take control of your life.
