Many people in our society are not happy with their weight. Some people are obese and are trying to lose weight. Others have an extra certain number of pounds they are trying to get rid of.
Other people are thin but see themselves as fat. They get so confused about what they should look like that they starve themselves or make themselves vomit after eating. They are suffering from anorexia and/or bulimia.
Often homeopathy can help in all of these situations. For someone who needs to loose weight homeopathy helps the person to deal with the underlying issues, improving their health and helping them deal with any emotional issues that are involved in their eating. As they get healthier most people will be able to make the lifestyle changes necessary to loose weight, if appropriate.
For people suffering from anorexia or bulimia the right homeopathic remedy will help them to deal with the underlying issues of why the feel this way and as those are dealt with the eating problems tend to just go away.
Here is an example of one person that we helped with a weight problem.
Patricia came in because she needed to loose weight. She was 5 foot 9 inches and weighed 275 pounds. As a result of the weight she had low back pain and foot pain.
She grew up feeling very insecure. Despite achieving wells she was always told she was not good enough. She felt fat despite not being that overweight at the time. She vomited after eating (bulimia) in an attempt to loose more and more weight. She felt that people always observed her appearance and found it lacking. This made her feel very self conscious. She gets very anxious feelings because of all of this.
She also had very heavy menstrual periods, very low energy and seasonal allergies.
Based upon this and many other symptoms we gave her a dose of Kali Carbonicum (note this was the right remedy for her but the possibility of it being the right remedy for another person with weight problems is very low).
By one month she reported feelings of feeling calmer inside. Since she overeats when stressed with feeling calmer she doesn’t feel the need.
Gradually over time things continued to improve. Her allergies reduced greatly. She started to exercise. She is able to eat less now- it is not easy, but it is possible now and couldn’t before.
Her periods got much lighter. Her anxiety reduced more and more over time. And she lost 75 pounds. She also feels much better about how she looks and is less concerned about what people think of her.
In this example you see the difference between homeopathy and other approaches for treatment of weight management. After the right remedy we expect to see everything getting better in the person's life.
