Memorial Day – Help for Those Who Grieve

The last Monday in May is set apart to honor those who have lost their life in service to our country. Memorial day is a day to remember those who served in the military and paid the ultimate price. Homeopathy can help ease the grief of those who have lost a loved one, whether it was a parent, a spouse, a sibling, or a fellow soldier. Consider the following homeopathic remedies to help restore hope and relieve emotional suffering:

Ignatia can help those who prefer to be alone or who want to escape their grief by traveling. There may be uncontrollable sobbing, angry outbursts, sighing, or a lump in the throat sensation. When grief is deeply suppressed, tics and spasms may develop as the body attempts to release the stored tension.

Nat mur can help those who are stoic in their grief and may not cry at all, unless alone. They are private persons who do not want consolation. They tend to dwell on their sorrows and hurts and may have trouble sleeping due to their inability to move forward. They crave salty foods.

Phosphoric acid can help those who become apathetic, exhausted, and isolated after many years of unresolved grief and trauma. They do not sleep well and have become forgetful and unfocused. They often crave juicy fruit and refreshing juices.

Aurum metalicum can help those who become severely depressed, even to having thoughts of suicide. There may be angry outbursts, alcohol or drug abuse, and yet a desire for prayer or meditation. Sleep is disturbed by nightmares or chronic insomnia.

Instead of suppressing symptoms, homeopathy stimulates the body’s self-healing power. In grief, a well chosen homeopathic remedy helps the body process sorrow and pain through this self-healing power. Tears are cleansing. They help remove toxins, relieve pain, and activate the parasympathetic system. Homeopathy offers hope to the suffering and enables a person to to fulfill the higher purposes of their existence.

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.”

-Washington Irving
