Strengthening Vitality with Homeopathic Tissue Salts

Reading Time: 10 minutes

The vitality of the body is, in part, dependent on the presence of essential building blocks of cells. W.H. Schüssler, a German physician of the late 1800’s, identified twelve inorganic mineral salts common to all bodily cells and tissues. He asserted that imbalances in these critical salts contribute to dis-ease, and that health and vitality can be restored and strengthened with minute doses of the deficient salt.

Low potency tissue salts are homeopathically prepared, so they’re gently supportive, safe, and free of side-effects. As such, they are useful for at-home prescribing. Think about using them to nurture vitality through colds, heartburn, bloating, muscle or […]

How Acute Disease Strengthens Our Vitality

Reading Time: 9 minutes

Eighteen days ago I declared rest in an Instagram post, unaware of the depth of rest that was to come. That night my son showed symptoms of an acute viral illness (yes, that one). We’ve been hunkered down since, taking our turns responding to this stressor.

My body initially responded with aches, chills, head pain, fever, and fatigue—all uncomfortable symptoms. And despite my discomfort, I celebrated these life-affirming expressions. (I also cursed them at times when I just felt over it all).

I celebrated because acute diseases hold immense healing potential. They can strengthen our vitality, and in fact, it is part of our divine design.

But we need to remember a […]

Empowered with Homeopathy

Empowered with Homeopathy

What is it to be empowered? What does it mean for you?

I feel most empowered when:

  • I perceive that I have options & the freedom to choose.
  • I feel safe & my options feel safe.
  • I am connected to my Vital Self & I make choices aligned with this part of Self. (Rather than making choices from a place of fear or scarcity).

Homeopathy allows me to choose a safe and supportive way to nurture health and healing for myself and my family.

And it aligns with the part of me that intends to nourish my (our) innate healing capacity.

I feel empowered with homeopathy. And, I’m here […]

Revolutionary Healing Part 6: Barriers & Bridges to Healing

Reading Time: 8 minutes

I recently shared that I’m on the other side of a number of months of uncomfortable symptoms that were, ultimately, an invitation to remember my wholeness on a deeper level. While that’s true, this is ALSO true: my symptoms were an invitation to take an honest look at what’s connecting me to my healing and what’s getting in the way of it.

Last September I started my third year of homeopathic training. It was my first year of full-time school alongside conscious parenting, birthing a business, nourishing a marriage, healing, and more—all while witnessing the biggest collective trauma of my lifetime. It […]

Revolutionary Healing Part 3: The Power of Partnership

Reading Time: 12 minutes

In the early stages of my healing, I oriented myself toward fixing my dis-ease and toward the belief that I was not OK. So I scurried from one practitioner or doctor to another, certain that one of them would confirm my belief with a diagnosis and fix what (I thought) broke in me. Many did offer me a plan or a protocol, and for a time I thought that if I ate their diet, took their supplements, followed their steps, or bought their program, I’d be well.

This is what I unconsciously sought then—someone to do the heavy lifting for me, to give me an […]

Womxn to Know: My Sisters in Healing

Reading Time: 8 minutes

There are so many ways to introduce this blog post, so many things to say about WHY this post is important. I’ll keep it short and simple, though, so that you can invest your time in getting to know these womxn—my sisters in healing—who I’m inspired by right now.

My inner fire ignites when I’m connecting with womxn who are committed to authenticity, growth, and healing. I know that, while my healing begins within me, it expands in relationship with others. We need each other on our healing journeys. One of the magical things about these healing connections is that they are rarely one-way. Whether we’re seeking support or offering it, […]

We Need Free Thinkers

Reading Time: 12 minutes

Hippie (noun): a person, typically young, especially in the late 1960s and early 1970s, who believed in peace, was opposed to many of the accepted ideas about how to live, had long hair, and often lived in groups and took drugs.

My daughter’s tween friends recently labeled her “the hippie” of their group. While part of me cringed at the act of assigning a label, part of me cheered inside. I suspect they weren’t referring to the long hair or the drugs. I suspect, rather, that they connected my almost-twelve-year-old with the idea that hippies don’t conform to societal norms. This, I think, can be […]

How We Approach “Flu Season”

Reading Time: 9 minutes

I’m not fond of the term “flu season.” I tend to think of this time of year as the season of inadequate sunshine  coupled with excessive proximity to others. This cooler, darker time of year may also equate to eating differently, exercising differently, consuming media and alcohol differently, and even thinking and emoting differently than we do in the warmer, brighter months. All of these things, among others, can make us more susceptible to the viral and bacterial agents that proliferate in cooler temperatures. And then, when we do develop symptoms in response to a cold or flu virus, how we respond to them has a profound impact on how […]
