Why Acute illness is GOOD, really, really GOOD.

Imagine you are a little kid that spends much of your time in the company of your family, in your familiar home and in a routine that is built mainly around you.  To make the transition to a daycare or school requires all kinds of new neurological pathways to evolve and as this happens, children get sick.

Every sight, smell and sensation is unknown in this environment – new care providers, new companions, new food, new touch, new rules, new pace, new ideas –

Children do not mentally hold their stress, they are experts at discharging and will blow all that overload out via mucus, fever, skin rashes, vomit, diarrhea, sweat.  They let it go physically as they adapt and thrive mentally/emotionally.  You can try to ease these transitions in all the ways you know how,  but there is just inevitably growth.  Growth and change are reflected in the body and as parents you need ways of allowing it.

Homeopathy allows the change, supports the mental/emotional expansion and does not suppress the discharge.  Think of all the suppressants we use on ourselves and our children – in the form of creams, ointments, deodorants and decongestants.  If we allowed our bodies to just do what they are inclined to do – would our level of health change?

You can model this way of being in your body to your kids – take time off when you feel ill, offer yourself comfort and enjoy the mental/emotional relief of having some time to integrate fresh experiences.  Use homeopathy if you feel the illness is out of proportion or stuck in a particular phase.
