Making Stress a Good Thing with Homeopathy

By Frank King, DC
Homeopathy has offered us fast, safe and curative answers to the elusive, perplexing and sometimes volatile problem called stress. Stress is simply the stimulus of life. How we process and manage it determines whether this stimulus becomes good or bad.

Stress can be the stimulus that causes us to do good things. It can cause us to find solutions to problems in our inner and outer worlds. Stress is the motivating stimulus that drives us to solve problems and make the world a better place.

Stress can make us bitter or better people. We can succumb to it and be victims, or strive to be victors. Stress can make us weaker and unstable, or stronger and more stable. Stress can break us down or condition us to handle and take on more. The difference in our outcome is in how we are able to process and manage our stress.

No matter what the stress, if we can go to the "positive," we will become better people. Stress such as deadlines, competition, confrontation - even our frustration and sorrow - adds depth, enrichment, character and quality to our lives. (Dr. Hans Selye, known as the "father of stress research," coined the phrase "eustress" decades ago to describe "good stress.")

It is shocking that 70 to 80 percent of all physician visits are related to stress, as are 80 percent of all American health problems. And stress, or even better - distress (the difficulty of handling stress) - can cause long-term illness. Whether it's a temporary weakening of our immune system or a chronic disorder, distress is commonly the causative factor.

Homeopathic Solutions to Stress

Homeopathy works to correct the underlining causes of distress. I have practiced homeopathy for over 20 years, and have found it to quickly and effectively help patients positively process stress and correct the common conditions associated with distress. I am most excited about the results homeopathy has to offer this common problem.

Homeopathy corrects nerve interferences that the hands of the chiropractor cannot reach. It empowers the chiropractor to impact the whole nervous system. Its addition equips the chiropractor to safely and effectively help solve the majority of problems plaguing society, by correcting the plethora of nerve interferences occurring throughout the whole person.

There are nerve interferences and aberrations deep within the fabric of the nervous system that cause distress. Homeopathy has the power to correct these deeper interferences and free us from the negative effects stress can have over us. It works to help us positively process stress, or to convert it into good.

Increase Your Armamentarium

Homeopathy offers fast and curative solutions to the wide range of stress-related conditions, whose symptoms include fear; anxiety; nervousness; oversensitivity; worry; stage fright; performance anxiety; irritability; restlessness; anguish; rage; jealousy; disappointment; depression; and the negative effects of shock. There are also homeopathic formulas designed to correct conditions like nightmares; phobias; mood changes; grief; guilt; and claustrophobia.

Homeopathy also offers formulas for associated conditions like addictions; eating disorders; smoking cessation; ulcers; digestive disorders; asthma; headaches; TMJ; eye stress; fatigue; jet lag; and PMS.

Although the above are directly related to distress, most health conditions can have distress factors associated with them. In fact, many people are suffering from the negative effects of distress and don't even know it. One of the most common health problems associated with distress is the obvious - back pain!

There are a number of homeopathic stress-related products in the marketplace that can be simply applied to the chiropractic practice. Whether the distress is mental, emotional or physical, homeopathy offers the chiropractor some simple solutions to this perplexing problem. The more intense the distress is, the more frequent the dosage should be. Distress is generally treated with an oral dosage. Many of the localized affects of distress can also be addressed with a topical dose. For example, if you are dealing with a stress-related headache or back pain, you can have additional therapeutic value by applying it topically over the affected area. This way you are helping from the inside out and the outside in. I have found both a faster and a higher percentage of results using the oral and topical dosages together.

The Doctor of the Future

Everybody wants to see the doctor who helps the chronic, recurring and resistant cases common to society. Homeopathy offers the chiropractor the added armamentarium it takes to correct these difficult cases. It also offers the chiropractor the ability to quickly and effectively correct the average cases we see daily in our office. The more dynamic your results, the more dynamic your practice!

The more effective we are in helping people, the greater our value grows as DCs. Results will always be the most effective practice-building tool we will ever have. Good marketing and a positive, upbeat personality are valuable tools, but will never surpass the power of superior results. When you begin cracking the difficult cases other doctors cannot, your practice will go to a new level. Your referrals, good reputation, and respect and appreciation from your patients, co-workers and colleagues will grow!

With homeopathy, you will also grow inwardly. Your sense of self-worth grows in proportion to your ability to help people. The more you are able to positively impact the health and lives of your patients, the greater your inner reward and sense of fulfillment. This realm of inner growth spills over into every aspect of your life.

Your finances will obviously grow as you begin cracking the diversity of chronic recurring cases plaguing our society. Money is the by-product of services rendered. Homeopathy equips you with the safest, world's most curative, complete and comprehensive therapeutic armamentarium!

New contemporary procedures in homeopathy can be successfully implemented overnight in your practice. I encourage you to experience the many benefits homeopathy has to offer you.
