Went to homeopath Pip yesterday. I'd been wanting to see a homeopath for months, as peri-menopause is causing all kinds of changes, some good, some annoying, others just plain weird.
As a professional reflexologist I do believe in the natural healing capacity of the body and in natural therapies to get things going, but I had never been to see a homeopath before. So I was excited when I walked to Pip's practice just a few minutes from where I live. It was a beautiful Spring day with just a few clouds around and a nice breeze. Pip's son's chickens were roaming around her outhouse and the cat was lying on the porch - it was all very idyllic.
The whole appointment was so interesting. Pip asked me questions - not only about my health but also about what I liked and what I didn't like, such as what made me angry, if I liked cold weather or not, which situations made me feel uncomfortable, etc etc.
As said strange things have been happening. I suddenly don't like coffee anymore - over a month ago I just stopped drinking it, weird as I loved coffee before. But I was just over it. I used to have a wine or two with my dinner every night but about a month ago I stopped having a wine during the week - still love my weekend wines though!
At the end of the week Pip will send me her recommended homeopathic remedies. Exciting!
