Hi Guys. This is Lindsay, your host for the Untethered with Lindsay Tuttle NP podcast, where we go deep on truly becoming untethered in your life and health and experiencing exponential freedom. We have the radical and uncensored conversations you have been craving and give you the tools for expansion and growth. I’m so glad that you are here and I can’t wait to connect with you.
Hey friends. I’m so excited that you’re listening in today. I’m sitting here with my friend Paula on Zoom. I can’t wait for you to hear from her today. She’s a homeopath located in Canada, supporting clients all over the world. She works primarily with folks navigating chronic illness and mental health issues who are looking for a mind body connection approach to healing, which you know, we love over here.
And you can find Paula over on Instagram at, at www.instagram.com/healingwithpaula, her website, www.paulajeffrey.com. And on her podcast, Vital Force hosted with two fellow homeopaths. Of course, I’ll include all her links in the show notes for you guys, so you can easily connect with what she is doing and how she is sharing.
And so Paula, I am so excited to have you on here. I have been a fan lurking over on Instagram. And I was like, I need to have you on the podcast because I just really valued so much of what you shared. You know, I work within the mind body space and, uh, in my experience, that is the game changer when it comes to health. And so I just knew I had to have you on. So I’m so excited to have you here.
Well, thank you for having me. I’m excited, too. I don’t know when I started following you, but every time you pop up, I’m just like, she’s doing cool stuff. So when you asked, I was like, oh, sure. It was a very easy, sacral yes for me.
I love that. That makes my heart happy. Yeah, I mean, it’s kind of, you know, interesting because I have the background of working as a, originally a nurse practitioner, and then I got more into the functional medicine space. And that really still doesn’t look at anything with the mind body spirit connection. It’s still, I feel like actually very similar to an allopathic model. And it just, I, I kept feeling like I need to keep on digging. I need to go deeper. And I think I got introduced to homeopathy maybe like six years ago, because when I was dealing with Lyme disease, there was a couple of people I was working with who started me with that.
And I remember it was very new for me. I think my husband thought it was a little bit crazy, but I feel like I’ve always been very, um, I think you are too, just like I go off of energy and something about it was very intriguing for me. I was like, there’s something here that I want to learn and understand more. And so now I feel like that’s just a part of our home is to have homeopathy on hand. It’s, it’s one of my first go to things for my kids, for myself. I love everything you share with just remedies, especially with support for women. I feel like uh, just uh, it just helps to remember like okay, what can I go to here? And I’d love to just have the audience be able to hear from you, just what even brought you to this space? Did you grow up around homeopathy? Did you have anybody who was using that as a homeopath and introduced you? Like, how did you come to it?
Um, it was, um, I didn’t really grow up with it. I think I had, I wouldn’t say I had crunchy parents, but they grew up on the farm. So, you know, they, you know, farm kids are kind of, suck it up and trust your body.
Yeah, yeah, right.
The nature is going to take care of things. Um, but I still grew up very, like, you know, you’ve got a stomach ache, like, take an Advil or take a pill or whatever you might need. Um, but I was pretty lucky to have pretty good health. I have I think pretty good genes that way, where my whole family is pretty healthy. Um, but you still have those things that come up here and there. And I still dealt with a lot of anxiety, especially as a teenager. That was something that was major for me. Uh, and when I was 13, my sister actually started seeing a homeopath. She was dealing with some skin issues and wasn’t having success with the conventional approach. And a family friend suggested a homeopath locally. And so my mom took a chance on it. You know, the approach that we had wasn’t working. Let’s do something different.
Uh, and she had really good success with it. And so I started, or I asked my mom if I could see the homeopath for, uh, warts that I had on my feet that I’d had burned off a couple of times. And they just kept coming back and paired with anxiety, that was just like, the worst thing was to have warts as a teenager. It was so gross. I was like, well, if that helped my sister, then it’s going to help me. Um, and, uh, that’s kind of the, I always think things like homeopathy, they kind of find you more than you find them. People don’t necessarily go looking for homeopathy. It always seems to be something that just by happenstance comes into your life and, and that, that, uh, almost magical dose kind of shifts your thinking and gets you thinking in a new way.
Um, so I remember my first appointment with the homeopath. I think the most impactful thing for me wasn’t that it worked and that it did what I needed it to do and that it, you know resolved my lactose intolerance that I thought I was doomed with forever. And all of these things. It was more so that it was the first time as a really quiet kind of anxious kid, I had a practitioner really listened to me and really take the time to sit down with me and understand what I was experiencing. And when you talk about mind, body, spirit, I think that was something that was really important to me before I had the language to express that. Um, and the homeopath really gave me space to explore it.
When I was in a doctor’s office, there’s… you know, one complaint. That’s all you get.
Yeah. 10 minutes.
Yeah. Yeah. I couldn’t explore, you know, how different things in my life impacted me, um, how my emotions impacted my symptoms, all of those different things. And so that first 90 minute session with my homeopath, I remember just feeling so much more at ease than any other practitioner I’d ever been with. And something about that to me was like, this is important. This is a valuable thing. So that was the beginning for me. And I, at some point around that age of 13, 14, it’s like, I’m going to be a homeopath. And that was my dream. And, uh, I very graciously have wonderful parents who, uh, who support pretty much whatever our dreams are, um, with a hefty dose of skepticism and, you know, but, so yeah, that’s kind of what brought me there.
Oh, I love it.
I continued on and, uh, pushed through a university degree to appease my parents and then moved on to homeopathy and, um, it, it all worked out exactly as it needs to. So it’s been a pretty cool journey so far.
I love that. I was getting chills listening to you speak because of just thinking myself of when you finally meet a practitioner who listens beyond just like, you know, going through a list and then just writing you a script. I mean, it was, that is so beautiful and so needed and what is so lacking. And I’m just curious, you know, I’d love to know two things. One, if you had to just give people a quick, like one to two sentences, is to understand homeopathy and the basis there, and then also, um, I’d love to know to like your observations with like homeopathy within Canada, US. Like what kind of shifts you’ve seen there, or if it’s if you’re seeing it be more normalized? But just I’d love for just listeners to hear that little brief statement, because, um, there’s probably some people who are not as familiar.
Yeah, for sure. I think the biggest kind of misconception is that homeopathy is the same as naturopathy. And those are 2 different things. I kind of like to say the naturopaths are like the GPS of the natural health world, in a way. They have lots of tools that they use. They might use acupuncture. They might use herbal remedies. They might use nutrition. They kind of do, do a whole bunch of different things. Um, that could all be their own independent practice, right? A herbalist could practice just herbalism. Um, and homeopathy is one of those things. And some naturopaths do practice homeopathy, but a homeopath is someone who’s really gone to school for 3, 4 years and done, um, um, uh, supervisory period of just homeopathy.
So we really specialize in the homeopathic process. And what homeopathy really is, is it’s a modality that believes that your body is all connected, mind, body, and spirit. Uh, and it’s fueled by your vital force, which is kind of like your core energy or your ki or your chi or your prana. And we use homeopathic remedies, which are um, basically energy medicine. They’re potentized, they’re diluted, and they’ve kind of taken the essence of an original substance and made it into this really small micro dose that when taken, it stimulates your body’s own healing mechanisms.
So it relies on like cures like, which is, um, kind of our core principle that what can cause symptoms in a healthy person can heal those symptoms in a sick person. So we really kind of, I can’t do this in a couple lines.
That’s all right. I know it’s, it’s so cool. Like.
It’s really cool. There’s a lot, but really the core thing is that we use remedies to stimulate your body to do what it already knows how to do instead of forcing it to do what we want it to do. So that’s kind of the core of it. Um, and then in terms of what I’m noticing, I feel like things are definitely shifting as with anything kind of in the natural health world. It’s sort of like, I think people are amping up their interest in things like homeopathy, and with that comes a lot more resistance and kind of pushback, which has been the history of homeopathy. Because it’s always kind of been, it’s the opposite of everything that is you know, modern medicine or allopathic medicine.
Uh, and so it really goes against a lot of what the mainstream is talking about. And so it tends to be one that gets vilified a lot. It’s also pretty far out there, like the diluted energetic remedies, hard to grasp. So I do feel like it’s growing and with that comes some pushback, but, uh, I just don’t see it going anywhere at this point. I, I’ve just seen more and more homeopaths, more and more people using it in their homes. Uh, I think it’s so empowering for, for families and individuals, so I don’t think it’ll be taken down.
Totally. And, you know, I was just thinking it came to mind because I remember there was something that was coming up in the US here. Like maybe it was six months ago where just homeopathy was really under attack. And honestly, I mean, if there’s anything that I’ve learned in the last like 10 years of working in, uh, alternative health is if, if something’s being vilified, you’re on the right track. Like that, that is something you need immediately. And so I just remember that was something that was being highlighted that it was under just attack. You know, I think that maybe it was being possibly, The FDA or some group, was looking to have a little bit more control here in the US over that. Um, and so it’s definitely an invitation to get familiar with what homeopathy is and just what kind of, you know, the importance of having remedies or connecting with a homeopath to really understand that this is something that can be so, so beneficial.
And, And so supportive. Um, so, yeah, I was just curious if that was something you had seen happen in Canada, too.
Yeah, Canada’s kind of going through its own thing right now. Um, it’ll be into the next stages by the time this is released, but, um, it’s. It’s kind of more global to like all of natural products. They’re doing some cost restructuring stuff, but basically what’s happening is they’re saying that we have to, um, companies are going to have to pay extra money to, uh, recuperate the costs of a lot of relabeling and that sort of thing that’s been going on with natural health products. And so as a result of this, this proposal that they’re making, um, it’s, if it goes through, hopefully it doesn’t, but if it goes through, then it would likely result in a lot less access to natural health products as a whole. So supplements, herbs, homeopathics, all of these things, because you would be paying extra costs on each product that you have registered, um, and that you carry.
So it’s, it’s kind of a roundabout way to really control that, the market in a way.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
And then it would result in less products. It would result in less, other countries probably wouldn’t want to bring their products into Canada because of all the extra costs. So it’s a really unfortunate thing. But there’s lots of people again working to, to speak up and say this, this is going to have detrimental effects on the health of all Canadians, right? Because when people don’t have access to natural modalities, then they get sicker.
Totally. I mean, I mean, this is the last thing Canada needs.
I hope, I hope that there’s good headway made there. I’m, I’m curious too because I know something we were talking about before hopping on was just Paula is pregnant right now and she’s using homeopathy as support through pregnancy. And I would just love if you could just share how homeopathy can just be such a beautiful support for pregnancy and honestly for women’s health? Like, I’ve seen you share so much on sepia, which has got to be, am I pronouncing it right by the way? Like, okay, cool. Uh, tomato, tomato, right? But I, I, that’s like my go to so often. Um, and so I’d love for you to just highlight, you know just why this is so supportive of pregnancy and women’s health.
And I just want to add to this most recent pregnancy for me, my third child, I did hypnobirthing and I actually used some remedies to help with positioning and to help with the labor and postpartum. I mean it was just a game changer and then I wound up using it as well because my baby had, uh, enlarged breast buds postpartum. And I think that was because I was also doing placenta encapsulation, which just wasn’t as good of a fit this postpartum. And I wound up using homeopathy and it went away in a day. So, um, I’d love for you to highlight that because I think people get so unfortunately, it’s just all uh programming, you know that we’ve been subjected to of like is this safe in pregnancy? Is this safe for breastfeeding? Is this okay for kids? And this is just it doesn’t work on that that dimension.
Yeah. Yeah. And I think that that’s like one of the greatest benefits of homeopathy is it’s safety because of what we talked about with the micro doses. So one of the core drivers of the way that we create remedies was that the Hahnemann who created homeopathy, really saw how detrimental allopathic medicine was and how dangerous it was and the side effects and all those things. And so he started to realize how this dilution process could reduce all of the potential side effects of these medicines, but retain the healing power and the energy of the original substance, so that it could still stimulate action and cure in the body, but it wasn’t going to cause all of those side effects.
It wasn’t going to, you weren’t going to have to heal both the symptoms and then heal from the medicine itself. And so that’s kind of one of the most advantageous things about homeopathy is how safe it is and how it’s safe for literally all walks of life. It’s safe, you know, for use with other medications, with other supplements. It’s not going to interfere with those things because it’s not interfering with our body. It’s just reminding our body how to do what it already knows how to do. So your body’s doing the action, not the remedy. Um, and that’s even different from supplements where like a magnesium, when you take magnesium, you’re counting on that magnesium pill to do the work, right?
Your body’s going to take it. But that magnesium pill is the active ingredient. That’s the that’s the potency. And with homeopathy, it is, isn’t the pill. The pill is just the catalyst. It’s just going to say, hey, remember how to do this? And then your body’s going to do the work that it needs to do.
So flip the script. I love it.
Yeah. Uh, so it’s, um, in pregnancy, I think it’s a really valuable thing because pregnancy is a very, I would say potent time anyone I mean this is my first pregnancy so it’s all new to me but I’ve worked with a lot of pregnant women, a lot of mothers and I hear all of the stories and all of the transformation that happens in pregnancy. And the beauty of homeopathy is that it’s not just acting on you, it is acting on baby too. And so when you’re using homeopathy in pregnancy those symptoms that come up that maybe aren’t normal to your constitution are probably your baby’s constitution. So they’re it’s kind of like your baby is talking through you saying, this is what I need support with. This is what I need guidance. This is what I need to heal even before I’m born. Right?
And so using homeopathy and pregnancy, I think really sets up not just you for, you know, a happy, healthy birth and postpartum, but also your baby for a happy, healthy life. Um, I’d say the second part of that would be that there’s no options for pregnant woman. And that’s like the most frustrating thing to me. It’s one of those, like, if men got pregnant, there would be every pill under the sun for, right, for all of these issues. And women are just like, suck it up. I’ll just figure it out. Um, and, and I found that I found, you know, even I love acupuncture, but there’s so many restrictions with what acupuncturists can do when you’re pregnant.
There’s so many restrictions with what herbs they can give you. There’s so many restrictions on all these modalities and homeopathy has none. It’s literally like, what are your symptoms? Great. Here’s a remedy. Um, and they are all safe for use during pregnancy. So I think that even just knowing that feels so much more secure when you’re in pregnancy, because I think that that fear of like there’s nothing I can do. There’s nothing I can take. There’s nothing that’s going to help me through this can be really, really disempowering, whereas when you have homeopathy, it’s like, I got options. I’m covered. I’m good.
Okay, guys, I have to be able to tell you about this amazing gut health supplement that my whole family has been obsessed with using this entire summer. You guys know, if I’m actually giving a supplement recommendation, it means that I really like not just a supplement but that the results that I have clients seeing, that I’m seeing others are seeing that myself and my family are seeing. As well as I really know the company, how they’re sourcing, what they’re doing behind the scenes.
And so I’m excited to chat with you about Amare and Happy Juice. Happy Juice is a science fact three part supplement that helps support stress, anxiety, mood, and more. It helps boost your motivation, helps normalize the gut brain and immune functions as well. I like to think of it as a daily supplement as this incredible benefits for your overall mental and physical wellbeing.
I got started with it months ago to be able to support my son Harrison with being able to help with some of the Candida detox that we were doing. And I saw such a shift in his behavior and his sleep that I knew that I was onto something. And I started using it personally just to give myself more of an adrenal boost, especially as a working mom, a postpartum mom. I’m always looking for ways outside of all the beautiful regulating modalities and nature immersed modalities that I use. I wanted to be able to see if there was something that could still optimize me on that physical level.
And so I incorporated Happy Juice and such saw such a beautiful positive shift when it came to my cycle, especially the week before my cycle, I had incredible energy, incredible libido. I felt amazing and I felt so much more nourished late afternoon and evening as opposed to feeling really burnt out or tired. So I highly suggest checking this supplement out if you are looking for that boost, if you’re looking to boost your cognitive health.
We know that the gut is so important when it comes to brain health and overall immune system function. And if you are not taking a really robust probiotic supplement, it’s really important to consider getting that in your regimen to really see some shifts that you’re wanting to see. A big thing that I loved about the supplement too is the fact that a lot of the strains are really incredible if you deal with any sort of histamine or candida issues, which I feel like is the majority of people that I talk to and work with.
And so totally want you guys to check this out. I want you to have improved gut health, immune system, health and adrenal health. And so make sure to go to the show notes or over to my website. You’ll get a $10 off code for Happy Juice or try out the kid’s Happy Juice. Either one you’re in good hands or if you want to get it for your whole family and I’ll make sure to send you a text of how to use this as well.
Something that I have learned and maybe you could speak more to as well is that, you know, you mentioned like baby’s constitution affecting moms. And so a tip that a friend had given me just in the postpartum period too, for anything supportive of baby was even just putting it in their field. Like you wouldn’t necessarily have to administer it or like, you know, which I was like, oh well it makes sense. It’s still kind of like a little bit of like a mind, like you have to kind of get past that learning curve, but you’re like, it makes sense because it’s energetic. But you know, to just to speak to your, what you were saying about safety, because I think, you know, people don’t realize this can be such a great resource for kids as well.
Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. And I think that like you said, um, that you don’t even really have to give it to the baby. I do find when I have babies that are having issues and I do an intake with mom, obviously, or sometimes dad, but typically mom, um, I’m more likely taking mom’s case. I’m seeing what’s happening with mom, what her emotions are, what’s going through. And I would say nine times out of 10, the remedy mom needs it probably matches whatever’s happening in baby. And we know the mother baby dyad, like it’s not separate for months and months, probably years, really, but, um, those first six months, especially. So, so most of the time I find, even if mom doesn’t necessarily need the remedy, I’ll usually have her take the remedy before breastfeeding or something like that, because I find it works as good, if not better, uh, when mom takes it. Because typically it’s her that needs the support more than baby.
So, yeah, no, I love that. saying this because this is why, you know, in the past I used to work a lot within pediatrics and even when I was working in a functional medicine capacity. And I found that I was just getting a lot of kids and, um, of course with the gap working in pediatrics. But anyways, I just started realizing over time, before I even was looking that much into emotional and spiritual roots of illness that like you’re saying, so often you just saw how mom was presenting and you’re like, this, this is where we need to start working, right? Like, and so now even with a lot of the work I do with metaphysical work and mind body spirit release, I just tell people because people say, can you work with my daughter or my son?
And I’m like, I have to work with you first. Like it’s a requirement for me, to approach it as a family unit, you know. Cause we’re just, our energy is interfacing and especially for young kids. And so, and then you just know what those generational patterns. And I know something that I’ve seen you talk about and something that I’m familiar with, with just, uh, it’s something we learned about within mind, body, spirit release work is miasms. And I’d love if you could just give us just a little bit of a, an explanation with that, because that really is so important with being able to to do more layers of healing.
Yeah, miasms, that’s cool that it’s in your work too. I always like to hear the different, you know, how it transfers to different modalities. For us, it’s, it’s very much kind of just patterns of disease. So it’s kind of like genetics in a way, but I like it a little bit better as a, as a perspective and as a concept, because it feels a little bit more fluid. It’s not something that’s so rigid. It’s kind of like a miasm is, it’s a pattern of how you might exhibit disease. So some people might exhibit disease through, um, a breakdown of tissue, whereas others might do more of a growth of tissue. So warts or, um, cysts or things like that, where there’s excess tissue happening versus a more excoriating eczema where things are breaking down or ulcers or things like that.
There’s different types of kind of ways that we respond to the environment and they’re often inherited through the patterns of our generations, um, and through the people that come before us, which is inevitable. We all have miasms. We all have history. We can’t be born a blank slate. It’s just not how human beings work. Um, and so I think that that is a cool and very important thing to consider. And I love that you said that it’s a requirement to work with mom first, because I think, that I operated in a very similar way because, um, If those patterns are really alive and well in mom, and she’s really struggling with them, then it doesn’t really matter how much we do in, in the kids. If we’re not addressing that kind of root cause, I’ll say, even though root cause is probably generations before.
The closest we have access to. Um, we’re not really going to get anywhere with, with, uh, treatment, so.
Well, and it just makes so much sense. Because like you were saying it’s so fluid it really, I love that it looks at that emotional component I remember for me when I initially starting started doing mind body space release work one of the miasms that came up for me multiple times was the tubercular miasm. And when I like read about it I was like, wow, this 100 percent describes me to a T. It was like reading an autobiography. And it was just really helpful. And so I’m curious, you know, when you’re working with clients, I mean, and, and working on all these layers, what would you say people should expect with like a timeline? And I know that can be very individual, but just in general, what do you see and, and recommend when people are starting to approach homeopathy with looking at like the timeline, especially if it’s chronic?
Yeah, um, it really depends on the person, but I usually like to say, if you have any sort of kind of chronic issues or things that have been around for a while, give yourself at least 6 to 18 months of homeopathic care, and that might not look like you know, constant meeting every four weeks or something like that. Uh, sometimes, you know, you’re on a remedy that is working really well and and working on the layer and you know how to take it and you keep taking it. And you come back when things start to shift or we kind of tap into a new layer.
Um, some people say one month for every year of of active symptoms that you’re dealing with. Um, I found that to be relatively true, but, uh, it doesn’t always account for life happening and, you know, moving through things and as emotions come up and, you know, old symptoms sometimes come up and that we have to work through. Um, that can vary quite a bit, especially with the amount of suppression that we have in today’s world. And, yeah, miasmatically, generationally, we have a lot of suppression in the people that we’re treating today. I don’t know if you noticed that too.
Um, well, yeah, yeah, keep going.
No, no, go ahead.
No, I was just thinking, I was talking with, uh, just some people recently about this, of just observing having traveled to, I guess, what would be considered underdeveloped countries and third world or maybe second world or however many worlds people want to say. But, uh, and just recognizing, like, there’s not mental health issues. There’s not like there’s not this level of chronic illness. And I also look at them, I would like to observe. Okay. Well, how do these different cultures connect? I mean they one do community so much differently they do nutrition and food and seasonal living so much differently.
Like I, I just it was all coming to my mind because I just what, what stuck out was just visiting Haiti for a few weeks. This was years and years ago. And just seeing the simplicity and also just seeing a completely different presentation of issues that were coming up. And like you were saying, you know, so much is generational, but with the suppression, are you really, are you referring to that with just kind of the emotional suppression that you see over decades or something else?
Um, all of the above. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Body and spirit suppression, I would say, is pretty active, at least here in North America.
And in more allopathically minded places, especially where there’s pharmaceuticals. Pharmaceuticals are obviously a very strong driver of suppression. Um, but, uh, yeah, I look at suppression is really anything that’s kind of pushing against your natural rhythms and what your, your nature wants to do, which kind of draws into what you’re saying. Where there’s a simplicity, um, I think of farmers, you know, like my parents and, and their families and stuff where, um, you know, nature, you know, how it works, you know, you can’t control it. You know that all you can do is work with it and support it.
And, you know, ebb and flow as, as the weather does. Right. Um, I think farmers are some of the, the wisest people in that sense. And, uh, it’s, it’s the same with our bodies. We we’ve kind of developed this world, this modern world, where we think we can control everything. And we think that, you know, there’s a pill, there’s a, uh, a life hack, there’s a whatever to fix whatever makes you uncomfortable. This is something we talk about on our podcast, seem to come back to it all time and time again. Um, that we’ve really mastered avoiding discomfort. Like, we’ve been, we’ve been avoiding grief, right? Death, we don’t have any, like, we just get further and further away from even processing death.
Like, so many ancient cultures and, and cultures that are so much more rooted in, in nature say, well, death is part of it. Death is life, you know, that’s part of the experience and we have to move with it and embrace it and process it. Um, so yeah, mind, body and soul, I think that we’re pretty solid at suppressing all of it.
Yeah. It just made me think of like 2020 in a nutshell was like, you know, how are we avoiding discomfort? And it was alarming. It was alarming to see just how much people fear just any sort of ailment or sickness or the possibility of death when I mean, you just that’s a daily occurrence. You know, it’s just as far as you know, that possibility. So that was mind blowing to me. And I think really pushed me towards looking at emotional spiritual components because I was like, oh my gosh, like people are so disconnected with exactly what you said. Just like the cycle of life like that is our, our vital force, our life force, you know, like people are so disconnected from it. No wonder people don’t feel well. You know.
Uh, which yeah, it’s interesting because just now seeing and I’m sure you’ve seen this too with a lot of like coaches that I chat with just like the post 2020 world, I feel like people are just kind of coming out of this like cave or just feeling still so suppressed from that whole experience it just really shifted things.
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And I think, um, that might speak to the more cultural suppression to like, um, from such a young age, and this would be like the carcinosis and miasma, the cancer miasma of, uh, just like every, every natural response and reaction in our human being is suppressed or told it’s wrong, which starts at such a young age, which I think like 2020, that was a huge, yeah. Even, even if you look at how people, you’re going to get me all excited talking about this, like.
I love this topic.
People responded, like people, you know, realizing, oh, that’s not how I wanted to live my life. Oh, wow. That’s what I really value in life. Oh, wow. That job, I can’t commit, like faced with death all of a sudden, what’s actually important to me? Is it the things that my parents told me were supposed to be important to me? Is it the things that society told me was supposed to be important to me? What’s actually my true nature? What do I actually desire? What do I actually enjoy? Um, and I think that that’s almost one of the earliest suppressions of spirit is we, we get put into a system and we’re told this is what you’re supposed to want. This is what you’re supposed to do. This is how you’re supposed to be.
And if you, you know, say no to things that you’re not supposed to say no to then we’re going to make you do it anyways. Like, there’s all of this, like, your, your inner voice, your inner energy saying, this is me, and this is who I am, is constantly being told, no, that’s not who you are, that’s not who you’re supposed to be. I think that’s one of the earliest forms of suppression that we experience is that authenticity. Um, which I’m sure you, you draw on in your work too, because that’s so much of that spirit and, and who we are. And if we can’t express who we are, then how can our body be in health, right? Like that totally the core.
Yeah, I think that was so paramount for my own healing journey, just going through Lyme and then mold and mass cell. I mean, just like it was label label, thing after thing. And just recognizing that I was completely out of alignment with who I was and like what I wanted to be doing and just felt like once I started looking at those deeper layers, it just all made sense, you know? It just and, and, it kind of directed me on the next path to take. And I truly believe, and I know you’re the same, you know, everything happens when it should, you know, timing wise, you know? I feel like I had to come to that place only after exhausting just personality, uh, exhausting, like, you know, all these other avenues, but, uh, it’s just interesting to look at how, like you said, just from birth and prior, you know, it’s just like this continuous onslaught, assault that I feel like it’s like, what is wrong with you and how do you need a change to meet an expectation? And so there just is this, uh, disalignment from self. And so truly, you know, healing in, in so many ways, it’s just like returning to who you are, you know, it’s just like.
And so I love that. That’s just such a big focus of your work because I think that the more that we can help people see that is, that is the piece, you know, and that they have the key like they, they are, they own, they have the key. Their body is supernatural, you know, like we’ve just been taught from birth that something’s wrong with you and you need something else to, you know, to make it work. No, your body supernatural. We just have lost touch of that. And so I love, you know, just looking at the generational component. I know you’re talking about just, um, I was thinking with, with my parents too, bless them. You know, definitely I come from a line of doctors and, um, that was definitely coming, going a different way here, you know, but, uh. It’s just interesting to see how we kind of get those, those reroutings and I think 100 percent that was 2020 was like the ultimate rerouting for people. Like, you know, you were headed this way and now we’re going to completely put you this other way. Like, and are you ready for it? You know, um.
So I’d love to know, Paula, with just a couple things I love to always finish up the podcast sessions with is, is just hearing more about what health and healing, what does that mean to you? Like, if you had a couple words that would describe what health and healing and vitality mean to you, I’d love to know. Maybe I’m putting you a little on the spot, but a couple of words.
I feel like we’ve been talking about it this whole time. Like it’s to me, the, the authenticity, the ability to be who you are and who you’re, you’re meant to be here. And, um, I think healing is really just a coming back to self and learning how to feel safe and confident expressing who that self is because that’s, every patient I see, it’s, it’s that conditioning that that gets them sick. It’s the, the voices that tell them who they should be instead of the ones that empower who they are. So, um, yeah, coming back to self, I think is the big one for me.
It resonates so much. I’d love to know. So I know we had shared at the beginning of this episode, just what, where people can find you. So I’d love to just hear from you what do you have available for people to connect with you when it comes to services? Is there a place that they can connect with you regularly? I think you have a podcast too. So I’d love to hear all that.
Yeah. Um, so Instagram is probably my main social media that I use. Um, and then our podcast, I host with two other homeopaths, Krista and Kelly ,is Vital Force. And, uh, we’re on summer holidays right now, but typically put out, you know, new episodes every week or every two weeks. And, uh, we mostly talk about homeopathy and healing and our own journeys and all of that stuff. We talk about entrepreneurship a lot too, just because we’re all homeopaths.
I love it.
Yeah, it’s, it’s part of healing too.
I so agree. Yeah. I feel like that, that is so, so big when you look at health is just what you feel purpose to do and what your, how you get to do business. And so I love that you intertwine that.
Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. Um, yeah, so those two places mainly, um, and then my website, which you mentioned for services, I am still seeing new patients until October. And then I’m closing my books to new patients just in anticipation of a little time off, uh, in the new year. And I’ll be doing some more courses this fall. I already have a few on my website. Um, my homeopathy at home courses.
Which teaches people how to use homeopathy at home, kind of gives you the basic beginners course. Um, that’s my most popular one. I also have a tissue salts course that teaches all about tissue salts, which are kind of like a branch of homeopathy. And then I’ll be doing a cold and flu, uh, series this this fall, which I was just working on before this. So I’m really excited about that because we’re going to talk.
Oh, nice. That’s great timing.
Yeah. We’re going to talk a little bit more about, um, kind of philosophy of, of health and, and why we get, you know, symptoms of cold and flu and that sort of thing. So doing some mindset work. So. Yeah, lots coming in the fall.
I love it. And I want to really check out the tissue salts because I have used those before, especially with my middle child. Uh, I feel like calc fuzz is one of our main go to’s at home. So especially with growing pains and all of that and, that’s a whole other thing, but I love that you have that too. That’s super cool.
Well, thank you so much, Paula, for sharing with us and just sharing your story and giving us an insight into homeopathy and just all the ways that you can connect with it and use it. I feel like it’s such a special modality that I just would love for everybody to know about and to get exposure to. Because like we were talking about, like, you know, it really focuses on you being the catalyst, not something else outside of you. And that is, I feel like the secret sauce, the magic of healing. So thank you so much for sharing today and can’t wait to chat again soon. Yeah.
