Suppression of Problems

Dangers of Burying Problems In daily life, often we find that if we ignore our problems, they come back to haunt us.  If you are angry or sad and pretend, mainly to yourself that you are not feeling that way, later those emotions bother you.  In so many social situations it is inconvenient to express negative emotions.  So you bury them deep inside your heart.  Then when you are stressed, suddenly you feel rage or depression.  Physical symptoms are the same.  If you turn off physical symptoms, they come back to haunt you later.  Homeopath call that process suppression.

Homeopathy Brings Problems to the Surface to Heal  Homeopathy turns on the body’s natural processes so that the body will heal those suppressed problems naturally.

Suppression through Drugs and Surgery Modern medicine has discovered how to turn off the body’s natural reactions to problems.  For example, scientists know how the body inflames so that pathogens can be destroyed.  A fever or heat in a wound are examples of such physical inflammations.   In an emergency when an inflammation could endanger life, this scientific knowledge saves lives.  For instance, we want a brain swelling to stop immediately because pressure on the brain could stop the flow of blood to the brain and death would happen in five minutes.

Most natural inflammations and other physical reactions to pathogens are not life threatening.  A slower natural process would not turn off the natural reactions of the body and healing could occur.

Why We Use so Many Drugs?  But when we are suffering we tend to look for the easy quick way of solving problems.  For insurance companies, suppressive drugs are fast, cheap and for the moment they look like they are effective.  So, most people, including me, have taken antibiotics, steroids and a long list of drugs that make problems apparently disappear.  We are doing what we are told we should do.

Forgetting Pain is OK Even in my own case, I recognized the return of these old symptoms only when they returned.  I could not remember a problem that had apparently disappeared.   That optimistic tendency to only remember good things does not prevent me from receiving the right treatment.  Because I suppressed my symptoms with drugs, my body presents other symptoms that appear in times of stress or weakness.  During treatment, these old symptoms reappear and naturally heal.  Luckily, the reappearance of symptoms is much more mild than the original symptoms.   Also, because I am older and wiser, I am taking better care of myself and natural healing is easier.
