3- Find the possible reasons why you have symptoms
Analysing your timeline – the pathway of events that led to where you are now, healthwise – often provides the information we need to find remedies that will help you.
By tracing your symptoms back to when they started, and looking at what was going on at the time, we can start to see what may have caused them.
In a simple example, if sciatica began 20 years ago, shortly after falling badly from a horse, we probably need to look at remedies that treat impact injuries.
Less obviously, if arthritic pains began 8 years ago, shortly after a parent died, we may need to consider joint pain remedies that also help with the effects of grief.
If allergies began in your teenage years, I’ll ask questions to understand whether you had exam stress at the time, or bullying issues, or simply a massive growth spurt. And then find remedies that suit that situation.
