Change is constant; it is all around us, from natural seasonal weather to the cells in our
bodies. Reflecting upon the many changes in my own life over the years, out of curiosity
I looked around me and recognise that many people I have met have re-invented
themselves at least once. Their reasons are varied; either their circumstances trigger their
change of country or career or with time and maturity they re-assess and if able to, they
follow their passions.
As humans we should be adaptable, making use of our experiences to enrich us. Our health
should not suffer as a result of those changes, even though they can often be triggered
because of serious health issues.
As a homeopath, my thoughts go to how those who do not cope well with change. They see
change as frightening and can be resistant, even sub-consciously. The unknown, the
different, the challenge of being outside ones’ comfort zone is perceived as alarming. For
example, a young child going to nursery for the first time, not being in a place or with
people she knows and where she feels secure brings up distress symptoms, such as crying
and clinginess, sleep disturbances, regression in other behaviours.
In adults symptoms of resistance or fear of change can range from slight nervousness to full
blown panic attacks. For some the slightest deviation from the daily routine triggers
unpleasant reactions, such as the irritable bowel symptoms suffered by an otherwise
seemingly calm woman I treated some years ago. Her remedy enabled her to deal with her
trigger as well as eliminating her physical symptoms.
My approach is to honour a person’s feelings and with homeopathic remedies help them to
cope better with all aspects.
Change is natural. Does it feel that way to you? Book a short call if not.
