Diabetes 2 is a condition that affects millions of people around the world, particularly in the west.
It is often a consequence of obesity, which is why the term “diabesity”.
People affected by obesity and diabetes are more vulnerable to covid 19, among other things. This is why it is more important than ever to keep as healthy as possible and this is where homeopathy can help.
THE OBESITY ISSUE
Except in cases where obesity is a genetic factor (which is a small percentage), weight gain can stem from thyroid dysfunction or poor eating habits.
You can check out my article on thyroid dysfunction in this blog, so let’s talk about over-eating and what homeopathy can do about it.
First of all, I would like to say that this is not a “woman issue”, as it is mistakenly thought of. It is perhaps true that women are more aware of it, but that can be true of any medical condition, as women pay more attention to their wellbeing, while it is notoriously difficult to get our husbands to even go and see a doctor!
Homeopathy treats the individual, not the condition, therefore the first question has to be: what is the cause of over-eating? We all know that stress can cause “nervous eating” or “comfort eating”, however, not everyone reacts like that to stress and what is stressful for one person can be perfectly fine for somebody else. Very often overeating starts in childhood and can be the response to childhood trauma or emotional neglet.
This lady came to me because of chronic eczema and weight issue. Despite being a professional naturopath and therefore knowing exactly what she should and shouldn’t eat, she couldn’t help herself and couldn’t stop eating. She was well aware that her cravings for sugary treats and chocolate came from emotional issues that she carried since childhood and she had had therapy to curb her cravings, but nothing seemed to work.
She had never been able to bond with her mother, who was emotionally distant and anavailable. Her father abandoned the family when she was little.
As a child she always felt out of place or “not good enough” and later on in adolescence, she craved attention, especially male attention, which led to all the wrong types of relationships and great disappointments.
Self esteem issues
In hindsight she recognises that she always had low self esteem. Even now, as therapist herself, she has little faith in her own abilities, which makes it hard for her to get her private practice going.
Homeopathic Lac Maternum
It important to get to the root of the problem, so in this case, I needed to address the early relationship with her mother, which is why I prescribed Lac Maternum. One of the symptoms of Lac Mat is what psychologists would call “oral fixation” which manifests in eating all the time, because the act of putting something in our mouth gives us comfort and goes back to babies nursing, which is not just about nourishment but also bonding and sense of security, as we all know.
During the first follow up, the cravings were greatly reduced, but the eczema was still there and the feelings of insecurity had not improved. This is when I had act on a deeper layer and I chose the nosode Carcinosin.
The main theme in Carcinosin is lack of boundaries. People who cannot say “No” and feel like they are being taken advantage of. This creates a vicious circle of self-loathing and then doing whatever it takes to feel “accepted”, which is usually to the person’s detriment and the cycle continues.
Second follow up
The skin was much better and clearer and the diet was under control. No more sweet cravings, less carbs in the diet, things are definitely looking up!
There can be many reasons that lead to over eating, weight gain and blood sugar levels getting out of control. It is important to take everything into account, not just act on the result, which is the high blood sugar level. That is an artificial expedient that does not work long term and more importantly, doesn’t address the underlying emotional issues that the patient may be carrying around for decades!
