“This summer has been busier than expected. Life has been too fast paced with a “break your neck to get it all done” attitude and too many projects. I’ve been having anxiety, exhaustion & feeling overwhelmed. The children have been fighting and whiny. I have noticed that they are all craving junk food more too (like popcorn, chips, chocolate, ice cream…). I must admit that I have been slack on mixing and/or administering remedies to our family.
Well, I finally broke down and asked my homeopath, Mr. Mueller, about it during my last appointment. He calmly said, “You know as well as I that when you are on your remedies, you are calm, you make sound decisions and you actually sleep well at night.

Remember, remedies don’t work unless you take them.” Yeah, yeah,” I thought…knowing he was so right.
And I’ve been there so many times before…I’ve had LOTS of opportunity to “fall off the homeopathy wagon” during the 10 years I’ve been treated. Every time I don’t take my remedies, I notice I become easily frustrated with the children (I have seven!), overly critical, I feel overwhelmed, I take on too much, and on top of it, I don’t wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day’s tasks.

The ones you did take still work. If you don’t give your child(ren) all his remedies this round…big deal! If you are late making the next batch of homeopathic remedies…big deal! DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP OVER IT. Just pick up where you left off! Make it, take it and get better! As my dear friend Scottie says, all we need to do is “endeavor to persevere.” Read more
