In today's world we are constantly on the run from the time we wake up in the morning, until we go to sleep. We almost never have time to think about our health. If you get a pain take a pill. If you are really sick you go to the doctor for medicine. The big question is why are you getting the pain, and are there other methods for curing it?
I had the opportunity to speak with Burke Lennihan, RN. CCH about a another form of healthcare. She has been a homeopath for 17 years now, currently at the Lydian Center for Innovative Healthcare. The Lydian Center offers many services including Chiropractic (Axial Stability Method), Cranial Sacral Therapy, Brain Gym, Energy Kinesiology, Homeopathy, Naturopathic Medicine, and Psychotherapy.
Lenninhan talks about what the practitioners do to provide long term health. The chiropractors use a gentle touch to the musculoskeletal system, while working with the nervous system. The holistic neurology practitioners re-wire the brain to help with learning and emotional problems, abuse and post traumatic stress disorder. The two homeopaths use safe and effective homeopathic medicines. Lennihan works with women and children for a broad range of mental, emotional and physical problems, while the other homeopath specializes in treating children with autism and Asperger's. The naturopath treats illnesses through diet and herbs by detecting the underlying cause. Brain Gym helps the brain get re-wired for example by connecting both sides of the brain using physical exercises. The Brain Gym practitioner also uses Cranial Sacral Therapy and sound healing.
Burke is a classical Homeopath which uses other methods for healing other than medication. She uses homeopathic medicine which is safe, because they are approved by the FDA. Also, they are cost effective, work fast, and last for several years. Children like the taste of them.
What I found out is they first get to know the client, find out their problems, history, background, and how all parts of the body are functioning together. Then they use methods mentioned above to treat the problem, and it takes more than one visit. Lennihan starts out with a two hour visit and then monthly half hour followups, until the person's condition is resolved. With homeopathic treatment, the client really does get better. They are not on medicine for life. As she says, how can a doctor cure you if you are on medicine for the rest of your life? Also, after homeopathic treatment, clients usually are emotionally stabile, happier, get along better in their relationships, and develop their creativity. In other words, they become a happier person at the same time that they are getting better physically.
