In relation to “gut” problems the return to a full range of eating is one of the best indications that healing has occurred. Avoidance of food is no guarantee of healing in this area. This is where homeopathy excels itself. A healthy body does not react to foods and is functioning optimally in its processes of creating all the aminos, minerals and vitamins from the health food which has been eaten. A healthy body is not lazy, nor sluggish and unable to execute this process. This is the best test for healing, as often many people who simply choose the diet change, find that when they try to re-introduce food the reactions are worse than when they were first removed. If you are experiencing problems in this area, the best thing you can do is seek out a qualified, professional homeopath. Its the best step you can take on the path to healing. As I have said to so many patients over the years, “You were not meant to live a life on supplements. This is neither healthy nor natural”.
I have also found that high supplementing often masks symptoms. It is important when you are looking for help with a problem that you are not simply just palliating it. The Acid Test is trying new foods. We have found that when there is healing new foods can be introduced back into the diet. Happy People all around then. Many of the parents of our “little patients” at the clinic are so happy when the household returns to normal healthy eating. One of my own patients telephoned me from a restaurant to inform me her child “was eating their way through the menu” with no reactions. Needless to say the family was over the moon!
