In this section I will mention some other complementary therapies that can be a very effective support for anyone who is grieving.
One is Homeopathy. There are several possible grief remedies. The most appropriate will depend on the person / animal, their symptoms and the situation.
Some options are listed below:
Ignatia – This is the first remedy a Homeopathic Practitioner thinks of when someone has suffered the loss of a loved one. This remedy often applies when there are symptoms of a lump in the throat, spasms in the body, feelings of disappointment in your life’s dreams, and an overall feeling that you must keep your grief suppressed and under control.
Natrum Muriaticum – This remedy is often indicated in a romantic loss in very introverted people who hold everything in. They feel the loss as a breaking in half of their own identity. They will cry horribly while alone, looking at pictures and listening to music, yet dread to show their feelings in public. This Homeopathic remedy is especially indicated in cases where long term illness progressed from the loss.
Arnica – is a remedy indicated where the loss was perceived as a blow. Often this is a financial loss such as a job or investment crash. In this case you would feel hurt, bruised, and tender and not want to engage with the hard world. The opposite could be the case when you toughen up and engage life in a blunt forceful manner in order to regain what you lost.
Magneseum Muriaticum – This remedy can be indicated after the loss of a care giver where you feel abandoned and forsaken, left on your own and unable to fend for yourself. This can be accompanied with digestive ailments.
Phosphoric Acid: for those exhausted from grief. They cannot perceive information as well as before. Debility comes from grief, mental shock, unhappy love, homesickness or even bad news. They will give short answers and they dislike talking. They may say that ‘life is useless’ and everything feels ‘dark’. The biggest characteristic of someone needed Phos Acid is indifference to the things that they used to love.
Causticum: for those suffering a weakened nervous system and connective tissues. There is often a history of slowly progressive debility, stiffness, and even paralysis. The ‘Causticum’ personality is serious, intense and sensitive and often overly sympathetic. This is especially true when hearing of unfortunate people, animals or events.
*I recommend seeking advice from a qualified therapist before taking any remedies.
