One of the interesting points that came up on today’s show on environmental sensitivity was the impact of this on our physical and emotional health. People who are highly sensitive to what is going on around them can often suffer from fatigue, anxiety, digestive upset, food intolerances, allergies, asthma and autoimmune conditions such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
So, if you suspect you are feeling the impact of your own sensitivity, consider trying a vibrational medicine like homeopathy. Here’s some dot points on how it can help:
• Homeopathy can improve both physical ailments as well as improve your mental clarity, attitude, emotional balance and enthusiasm for life. The right remedy can help you release emotions that you have carried with you for years. If you are already seeing a counsellor or psychologist, the correct homeopathic medicine will enhance your progress and allow you to move through your issues more quickly.
• On the show, we spoke about how sensitive people will often feel drained by certain people or situations. During the course of homeopathic treatment, you may find yourself releasing unhealthy situations or relationships or doing whatever is necessary to resolve them as the remedy creates a shift within you that can produce significant, positive changes.
• A consultation with a homeopath is quite in-depth as treatment success depends on prescribing a remedy that matches you as a person. A good homeopath will be able to grasp the thread that ties together all of your symptoms: physical, mental and emotional.
Here are some commonly prescribed homeopathic remedies for highly sensitive people:
Phosphorus: open, extrovert or reserved, clairvoyant, takes on other people’s energy, kind and sympathetic, lacks boundaries, excessive concern for others which can be exhausting, burn out.
Calc Carb: sensitive to bad news, affected by seeing suffering, injustice, events in the news, fear and constant worry, need to retreat from the world to feel safe.
Nat Mur: emotionally wounded from grief or heartbreak, dwells on the past, anticipatory stress, sensitive to criticism, rejection, humiliation.
Ignatia: never well since grief or heartbreak, emotionally oversensitive from expecting disappointment to happen.
Carcinosin: sensitive to criticism, sad stories, fastidious, perfectionism.

Amethyst immersion: yes, that beautiful purple gemstone when prepared as a homeopathic remedy, is used for those who are oversensitive who tend to pick up on the feelings of others to their detriment. It opens the heart to unconditional love for all.
The above remedies are only a handful that are used to calm down sensitivity, there are many more so see a registered homeopath for an individual prescription. To find a homeopath, visit the Australian Homoeopathic Association’s website www.homeopathyoz.org.
