Overall Wellness

What is overall wellness and why is it important?

Overall wellness refers to the state of being healthy in body, mind, and spirit. It’s about more than just the absence of disease or illness; it’s about feeling good physically, mentally, and emotionally. Homeopathy involves the analysis and treatment of all underlying causes and symptoms thereby providing a holistic wellness solutions around human health.

 Homeopathy practitioners, also known as homeopathy consultants, may offer a variety of services to promote overall wellness, including:

  1. Homeopathic remedies: Homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances and are designed to stimulate the body’s own healing abilities. We prescribe specific remedies to help address a wide range of physical, emotional, and psychological issues based on our root cause analysis session.

  2. Diet and lifestyle recommendations: We recommend changes to diet and lifestyle to help improve overall wellness. This may include recommendations for specific foods or supplements, as well as advice on reducing stress and improving overall health.

  3. Constitutional treatment: Constitutional treatment is a form of homeopathy that aims to address the person’s overall health and well-being. This may involve a series of remedies that are chosen based on the individual’s unique physical, emotional, and psychological characteristics.

  4. Counseling and support: We provide counseling and support to help individuals cope with difficult emotions and life challenges.

why is it important?

Overall wellness is important because it affects all aspects of our lives. When we are healthy in body, mind, and spirit, we are better able to cope with the challenges and demands of life, and we are more likely to feel happy and fulfilled. Overall wellness is a holistic concept that encompasses all aspects of our health and well-being. By focusing on overall wellness, we can work towards a healthy, fulfilling, and balanced life.

Physical Wellness

The pandemic has underscored the ways in which our physical bodies carry not just general stress, but traumatic stress. Increased fatigue, difficulty sleeping, or tension headaches and body aches are all common signs that we may be carrying traumatic adjustment stress or ongoing COVID-19 related stress. The diversity among us means that we may feel different things differently in our bodies than people we know. 

Self-Care for Physical Wellness:  Consider new types of physical activities that you have never tried before, or maybe something that you have always wanted to try but just have not had the time. If you are a runner, maybe consider interspersing it with walking. If you are a walker, maybe consider listening to a meditation as you walk. If you do neither, consider incorporating gentle stretches while studying. Having positive and curious conversations with family and friends about their physical wellness may prompt new ways to consider strategies for ourselves. 

Spiritual Wellness

A year ago, religious/spiritual practice pivoted dramatically as spiritual and religious communities began to offer services like preaching, prayer, and meditation—even hospital bedside visits—virtually. Worshippers have mourned the loss of holy space and communal practices, especially during holy seasons like Passover, Easter, and Ramadan, and on other occasions when the community assembles in solidarity. 

Self-Care for Spiritual Wellness: Explore creative ways to access spiritual/religious communities; engage in informal spirituality/religious discussion groups via Zoom; consult with spiritual/religious elders for advice and support for navigating during this time; consider ways that we can find spiritual community that transcends being physically present with others. 

Occupational Wellness

Occupational Wellness is recognizing and accessing personal satisfaction and enrichment in one’s life through work. During the pandemic, this area of wellness has been significantly redefined and accelerated in areas related to our work environments. Without being in healthy, productive spaces, occupational wellness is compromised. Without the reassurance of collective socially responsible behavior, clear action, and communication, morale and trust erodes. 

Self-Care for Occupational Wellness: Have clear boundaries around issues at work to prevent them spilling into other areas of life. Consider a different workspace that is closer to a sunny window. If a tech update is needed for the work that you do, explore if resources exist for this. Request clarification for workplace COVID-19 precautions and express your needs for safety. Most importantly, prioritize your health if you are able to take time off due to illness.
