The body’s primary role is to provide and maintain balance or homeostasis. It is constantly receiving information and challenges that alter this balance or take it away from what we refer to as center or “home”. The belief in alternative therapies is the concept that given the right information, the body is capable of healing itself. Sometimes our lifestyles may challenge the body and in response, the body sets up compensatory solutions that over time do not serve us well. Things "pile up" and eventually the body is in pain. Homeopathic tradition sees this as a form of chaos; and suggests that if we are able to remove a couple of the “last straws”, the body can heal itself and return to the balance of ‘home”. In chaos theory, this phenomenon, dependence on initial conditions, implies that just a small change in conditions can drastically change the long-term behavior of a system. Just as a small challenge can create negative changes, small positive changes and influences can positively alter the system. Hence, our holistic approach, of making changes, in diet, thought processes, exercise, and lifestyle changes.
Let's look at this view of the body as a total, in terms of an injury. A client presents with a pain in their shoulder. Though the expression of disease (= dis-ease) is at the shoulder; the communication could be coming from many different sources. Sure, the 4 competitive tennis matches last weekend after the minor fall on the shoulder 3 weeks ago, along with dealing with the person, place or thing in your life that is stressing you out because you are not able to control it… all are contributing factors. Since 70% of healing is honoring the truth, if we are able to acknowledge all contributing factors, and support the body in healing the expression of all this stress; the body can heal. As healers, we may invite the change, ultimately the body does the work.
This is a different concept to just focusing on one symptom or body part. A message that for some reason this body part (being a part or piece of the whole) needs some attention to get back in the swing with the rest of the body. By working on major meridians and distressing the supporting muscles, reducing inflammation, breaking up scar tissue, nourishing the body, perhaps adding supplements, the body can then take care of the sore shoulder.
All expressions of pain match patterns in homeopathic medicine and acupuncture tradition; that is the pain follows patterns that are recognized in the older medical worlds. So by working on meridians, the trigger points, by focusing on the underlying energy of the injury or pain, then we invite the body to heal itself.
The most familiar medicine as practiced in the United States is allopathic, meaning that it is used to suppress symptoms of an ailment or disease. It is further complicated by being a system controlled by insurance and drug companies. Its roots are in a mechanistic medical system that sees one cause, one cure; with one cure for all, same dose, etc.
To follow a more natural, holistic picture of health along with seeing symptoms of illness or disease as a cycle in the body means accepting sneezing and coughing to extract the mucous are the body’s way of getting you better. An annual cold is like the oil change in your car, all of that is supposed to come out. It’s a flushing.
So we look at the whole, we focus on giving the body the information it needs to heal itself the way it heals, top to bottom, deeper to more superficial, and most recent to older injuries.
