Lightening the burden of grief and loss
I recently spent a day at the funeral of a dear friend’s mother.
I was glad to have the chance to attend.
It was a beautiful service in a small village church.
The coffin was a woven basket, with a garland of white roses and greenery around it.
We sang simple hymns that reminded me of my childhood and recited the Lord’s Prayer.
There was a reading from Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas, a book I’ve not yet read. It reminded me how much I used to love reading classics.
The funeral reminded me that the last four funerals I’ve attended were for my mother, my aunt, my grandmother, and my nan. All four were significant women in my life and influenced me in many ways. I wrote about my mother and my grandmothers one Mother’s Day. I still miss them.
Funerals are always sad, but I was glad to have the chance to spend time with my friend and her family and friends. It also gave me time to reflect on what’s important to me.
Funerals always make me count my blessings.
Homeopathy for grief and loss
Bereavement and loss can be a trigger for different types of illnesses, even when it is seemingly unrelated.
- Low mood
These are not the only ways that we can be affected by grief.
Shock and unexpressed sadness affect our body as well as our mind; it can show up anywhere.
I know that my worst period of eczema came after a time when I lost something dear to me.
The year after my mum passed away I had a series of colds and then the flu.
Feel like yourself again with homeopathy
Homeopathy is not only for physical health, but mental and emotional well-being too.
Talking therapy has helped me during different times in my life where I’ve experienced bereavement.
I’ve had counselling training myself, which I bring to my work, along with a non-judgmental space.
Homeopathy offers you:
1. A safe space to process your feelings and release them.
2. Homeobotanicals gently calm and energise.
3. Homeopathy remedies act deeply to help you heal, mentally, emotionally and physically.
“Tracy is a kind and warm person and I really enjoyed our sessions where she showed empathy and understanding to anything I came up with and I found it very helpful. Her holistic approach did not only tackle my immediate symptoms but also worked at increasing my general well-being, something I can feel even months after the treatment.”
If you feel that grief or loss are affecting your well-being, I could like to encourage you to consider homeopathy.
