Now that schools are seemingly having classes in person and employees get the option of going back to work, for the most part, everything is back to normal. Right? Not so fast. A lot of people are still suffering from the losses they experienced during the lock downs and after we were able to show our faces. These losses could be human lives, jobs, friendships, etc. Homeopathy can help post-CoVid grief.
Many Americans are grieving the way things used to be.
Sadly, many are also grieving the loss of friends because they had different viewpoints about CoVid and/or politics. It used to be okay to disagree. Now it’s not.
How many of you have family members whose High School Graduation was virtual? Zoom graduation? It isn’t even close to the same thing.
What Is Grief?
According to the Mayo Clinic, Grief is a strong emotion which can overwhelm people who are experiencing a sense of loss. This sadness can be the loss of a loved one, or it can be the loss of how life used to be.
For example, you could be going through boxes of old memorabilia and feel a sense of grief over something that you wish was still the same way it used to be. This could also be plain old nostalgia which is called Homesickness in Homeopathy.
Homeopathy can help post-Covid grief. Interestingly, when I use my repertory of symptoms and the remedies that are known to heal those symptoms, Nostalgia and Grief overlap a great deal.
Remedies To Try
There are some common remedies that can help post Covid grief that anyone who knows a little about homeopathy would come up with.
Ignatia—The flagship grief remedy. You may find that you have a lump in your throat when you think about the subject of your grief. You may be weeping.
Natrum Muriaticum—old, very pent-up grief. Probably not crying, but definitely feeling irritable. You may also not have any feelings at all about it because you have managed to suppress all feelings related to it.
Aurum Metallicum—People who need Aurum will feel responsible somehow for that situation about which they are experiencing grief. I should have insisted they go to the doctor. I should not have gone along with the suggestion.
Staphysagria—Grief accompanied by anger or rage. Someone needing Staphysagria could also look like he or she needs Natrum Muriaticum due to the ability of the patient to suppress emotions readily.
What If These Do Not Help?
Sometimes a remedy that is close will help, but the improvement doesn’t hold. In that case, you should contact Lotus Homeopathy for help. There are at least 75 remedy possibilities that cover both Homesickness (I wish things were the way they used to be) and Grief.
Most importantly, however, is to recognize that life does present us with changes all the time. I have a friend who posted some pictures on Facebook of a reunion of 10 people who all started working for the same company at the same time. Thirty years later, they are all still friends. Will workplaces ever be that way again? Is there some other way to develop friendships at work when most people have hybrid work situations?
There is much to grieve. Homeopathy can help Post CoVid Grief.
