You Got Sick & Now To Get Well

Essential information:
A New Way To Look At Your ‘Disease’ & Recovery. 

ALL ill health is connected.
You don’t have multiple illnesses.  You have one illness with multiple symptoms across multiple systems.

Your body isn’t disconnected bits & it needs to be healed as a whole.

From a homeopathic perspective, conditions given different names are not distinct illnesses, so much as weaknesses in defences or predispositions, that are triggered.

To bring your health back you have to raise your level of health to the stage before your predispositions were triggered. With different weaknesses and predispositions, you’d develop different symptoms, given different disease names.

Health can be driven down by

  • natural ageing,
  • undue stress,
  • environmental toxins,
  • poor diet,
  • unhealthy habitats,
  • traumas,
  • negative relationships,
  • recreational and prescribed drugs,
  • other, chronic stress factors.

To return to earlier, better stages of health you must assess and attend to all your chronic stress factors, but you may not have the ability to spontaneously recover once they are removed.
You can have homeopathic treatment to raise your level of health at this point.
However, without attending to your chronic stress factors you retain a ‘maintaining cause’ that will bring you back down however hard we work to raise you with homeopathy.

We see that, as our physical health descends, we develop symptoms first at the skin level (maybe as children), moving to the mucous membrane level (throat, tonsils, ears) then within the muscular-skeletal system (rheumatism, back pain, arthritis). As health descends further we might experience lung problems (asthma, bronchitis, etc), then problems in organs like the kidneys, liver, heart, etc. Next, we might see the endocrine system involved (as in adrenal fatigue & hypothyroidism) and finally the brain and nervous system may become involved (as in multiple sclerosis, for example).

However, human health doesn’t exist alone on the physical level. Nor do all people have predisposed weakness within each body system. Under particularly heavy stresses, we may descend fast and bypass some of our simpler predispositions, arriving at the deeper mental and emotional levels.   We are three-dimensional beings, not just existing on the physical level (see fig).

levels of health

If a person is particularly predisposed to emotional health problems, when their level of health descends rapidly they may move straight to anxiety, phobias, apathy, depression or suicidal depression. When you are beginning to see the development of such ailments under drug treatment for physical conditions you should see this as an acute warning sign that this treatment is helping your symptoms at great expense to your health. Sometimes it is unavoidable in the short term, but seek homeopathy so that you can eventually, safely come off drugs that are having side effects.

At any one time we may have physical, emotional and mental health symptoms of disease, but with suppressive medications and chronic stress we will always move gradually toward more emotional and mental health problems and/or deeper physical problems, and the lesser physical symptoms will usually be ‘grown out of’.

A Typical Descending Case:

A good example is the following case of a boy I am currently treating:

  • At 2 months of age, he was immunised and ‘immediately’ developed eczema. (A family predisposition).
  • His eczema was treated with steroids, antibiotics, and antihistamines.
  • As the steroid treatment began to ‘cure’ eczema he developed asthma (A family predisposition. This is a common development in eczema cases).
  • His asthma was treated with more steroids. This time they were not steroid creams but steroid inhalers and steroid liquid medication.
  • As his asthma came under control he began to develop very disruptive behavioural traits, he lost empathy and self-control.
  • By the time he came to me, aged 10, he was clearly ‘mentally’ ill. He was demonstrating distinct autistic traits and attending a special school. He isn’t safe unattended in his own home for any length of time and he swears and attacks people continually. He is very anxious and he has disrupted sleep.

All his ‘diseases’ are seen by conventional doctors as unconnected.
Under homeopathic treatment, we have seen him moving back through his symptoms as he heals. Gradually his mental-emotional symptoms have improved, his asthma has begun to improve and his eczema has returned. This is a great sign for a homeopath to see. We know his case is moving in the right direction. His body is winning the battle to push its imbalance outward to the skin. When eczema returned his mother used steroid cream and his asthma worsened and his behavioural improvements relapsed. We repeated his remedy & he began to improve again. Currently, she is using non-suppressive, soothing applications for his eczema (emollient cream and Stellaria/Chickweed cream) and the eczema is gradually moving lower down the body and out to the fingers and toes … finally, to disappear, we hope.  If he had started homeopathic treatment for his eczema, he would not have had to go through the stages of ill health he’s been through. Thankfully, I frequently treat children with eczema that hasn’t been complicated in this way.

A Typical Ascending Case:

If you read ‘Helen’s Case’ … a case of autoimmune hypothyroidism returning to health via asthma – treated with homeopathy, you will be able to spot Helen returning through the old symptoms she acquired as a child as she begins to heal from her hypothyroidism.   You’ll be able to see her problems moving toward less essential systems as her body begins to win the battle.

Helen’s is a similar case of steroid suppression, with very different outcomes because she has a family predisposition to autoimmune hypothyroidism rather than mental health problems, but she was beginning to show signs of mental symptoms such as brain fog and memory loss and emotional symptoms such as apathy.
Now she uses no medication for hypothyroidism and has regained her energy, vital heat, mental function, menstrual cycle, ovulation & night vision (this was the first thing she reported had come back and she’d not even mentioned it to me!)

To find out more about this kind of recovery book a free 15-minute discussion about your health.
You can also join the Adrenal Fatigue & Hypothyroidism Study. if you have adrenal or thyroid dysfunction.


Sally Lloyd is an international classical homeopath specialising in children’s anxiety & behavioural disorders, adrenal fatigue & hypothyroidism.
She is part of an international team (with Ingefleur Spreij and others) studying the interrelationship between adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism and fertility problems in homeopathic patients, worldwide.  She also carried out a study into treating children’s anxiety and behaviour disorders.

What’s Keeping Us Awake?

Although it seems you are the only person who is NOT asleep, you are not alone, and help is at hand.  Researchers and authors talk of an ever increasing “epidemic of sleeplessness”, with 6 out of every 10 UK adults surveyed being found to be ‘sleep deprived’.  A key link found was increased exposure to blue light from screens:

“Although any type of light stops you feeling sleepy, research has shown that light towards the blue end of the spectrum is especially effective at keeping you awake because it suppresses the production of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin.”  link

They suggest, for those who cannot switch off for the two or so hours before bed, amber tinted glasses that filter out blue light along with dimming the screen display.

Other causes of sleeplessness are hormonal imbalances unrelated to light exposure, and conditions that impact on hormonal balance such as stress, anxiety and fear.   Individualized, holistic homeopathic treatment may rapidly resolve sleep issues caused by underlying imbalances.

When is it insomnia?

The expectation that we will sleep a straight 8 hours is a modern one.  People used to have 2 sleeps and even visit their friends in the night, until late into the 1700’s.  In modern times we may be more inclined to interpret natural, regular waking cycles as evidence of ‘sleeplessness’.  Everyone wakes, but an inability to return to sleep may be the problem.

My current ‘sleeplessness’ problem is a common one!   I sense there are not enough hours in a day. I try to extend them by going to bed later. In reality, I function less well the next day and don’t gain any time in the process.  This is not insomnia, but a common thinking pattern that can lead to sleep deprivation & poor sleep habits:  We tend to agree with the BFG, that we are wasting so much of our lives in sleeping ….

Sleep’s Great Payoff … 

when we sleep our brains shrink back so that the lymph pathways are wider and toxins can be removed from the brain. This is recent research, and it shows why you feel hungover if you don’t get enough sleep. I might also explain why long term sleep deprivation can be deadly..

Lack of sleep is also linked to obesity because light, sleep, hormone production and fat/glucose metabolism are closely interlinked.  We convert fat to glycogen to store in our muscles but we tend to do this in the first part of the night, from sundown to about midnight. Being awake late can cause us to lack glycogen supplies, and subsequently lack energy next day.  We retain more of the fat that our bodies were expecting to use. We then run on blood sugar supplies more completely and need to raise the blood sugar … leading to sugar/carb craving, and a vicious cycle, potentially descending into insulin resistance.

The links between sleep deprivation, length of life and disease have caused the UK Government to seek to do something about it with a campaign aimed at informing people about the dangers of missing sleep.   However, keep in mind that statistics regarding health and sleep are conducted across populations and insomnia is not directly equal to ill health.  [This linked article is well worth a read if you need reassurance, and especially if you sleep little but are refreshed, or keep strange hours].  Some adults thrive, without health problems (even long term) on low levels of sleep.

Treat Sleeplessness Naturally …  Checklist: 

  • Take a look at your stimulant intake.  Coffee is an obvious candidate.  In homeopathy it is used in medicinal form to cure sleeplessness as it can certainly cause it.
  • Check your night time ‘blue spectrum light’ intake.
  • Be sure that you use your sleeping area for sleeping and rarely for working, so that your brain expects to sleep in that space.
  • If you are still struggling with sleeplessness, you probably have a problem that needs treatment.  This problem may be stress & anxiety or hormone related.   They can be one and the same thing as stress and anxiety impact on hormone balance also.

Homeopathy is used for rebalancing the body to enhance sleep.  I’ve directly experienced it after losing sleep rhythms with my baby (who had sleep apnoea and wore an alarm at night).  I was surprised and relieved by how fast it worked!
