I Love Homeopathy

I didn’t know a thing about homeopathy until I moved to Maine in 2004.

I am a convert.  For sure.

It’s my first line of defense for body issues.

And as time has gone by, I am more and more wedded to this form of healing–having tried it for 13 years now.

What I like is that homeopathy works WITH the body, not against (cut, poison, burn) its healing modalities.

I can tell you that I used to get EXTREME reactions to poison ivy–such that it would run all over my body in huge, weeping sores that would take weeks and weeks to heal.  I no longer have poison ivy–yet am exposed to it all the time via the woods and an active rat terrier who runs through it on a regular basis.

I could go on.

At the end of May, I came down with shingles.  (Oh dear god!)  A week later my blisters were dry and healing.  I then had nerve and muscle pain and ITCHING, but my case has been nothing like what I have witnessed other people having.  My homeopath got me right on to one of the major shingles remedies, and that made all the difference.  Next, she moved to a number of other remedies.  And my energy person suggested vitamin E for the itching.  I found a very clean product on Joseph Mercola’s web site, and the itching is almost gone now.  (Most commercial vitamin E is made from soy, has a lot of ingredients I could not tolerate with my histamine intolerance issues, AND according to Mercola these products do not have balanced forms of vitamin E so can inhibit absorption of other nutrients.

Homeopathy is also well respected in much of Europe, as near as I can tell.  And is covered under many health care plans, as near as I can tell.  Coverage is probably is site specific though.  I don’t really know.

Anyway, here’s a good article if you are curious:

 

Homeopathy is here to stay. Despite relentless criticism from skeptics and fundamentalists, homeopathy has withstood the test of time.

A Completed Quilt Project

Becca Babb Brott has worked for about two years on this HUGE Jen Kingwell quilt.  Becca combined THREE of Kingwell’s patterns into this king-size quilt–which she then quilted on my long arm.  One pattern is “Gypsy Wife,” but I don’t know the other two patterns.

There was drama with the long arm, of course.  I was using needles that were too light, and one broke, throwing off the machine’s timing.  It was way, way overdue for a check-up, so off it went to Sanborn Sewing Machine.  Those folks are beyond terrific.  The break occurred just before our Coastal Quilters’ retreat in Kennebunkport, so I was able to drop off the machine where the staff fixed it for me in a narrow window they had on Friday.

When you have to move a long-arm head, poles have to come down, which means a quilt has to be taken off said poles, etc.  When we got everything back, we were able to painlessly put everything back together, and off Becca went, sewing away.  Hmmm.  After a few tension adjustments however…

 

 

Here are some other pics, made when she showed it to Coastal Quilters’ members.
