Mum Life!

It’s not always easy to stay calm, balanced, fit and well-nourished when you are a mum.

Let’s face it, how can you do things for yourself when your life revolves around making sure the kids are fed, dropped off, picked up, and doing their homework. Never mind also needing to do the house work, and/ or somehow also maintain a ‘real’ job. God forbid that you should have poor sleepers as well!

It’s no surprise that you are constantly feeling tired, overwhelmed, stressed, and possibly unmotivated.

When you are so overburdened your immune system begins to struggle too. It is possible to succumb to issues such as chronic fatigue, food intolerances, allergies, anxiety, stress, depression and sleep problems. You most likely never thought that of all people it would be you that’s struggling with your health. After all, mums are invincible! You are a mum and everyone else comes first, and you have everything under control. Well, in a perfect world you do.

The World Health Organization defines health as “not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, but a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being” and the actions we take towards reaching health is defined as wellness. (WHO)

You know you can’t carry on like this. I’ve been there too, trying to be everything to everyone all the time. I speak from experience when I say, it’s time for a change of mindset and lifestyle so you can be the best you and the best mother and also enjoy your life too.

So you know you are sensitive to particular foods, and that you should be eating better. You know that you need more sleep, but you wish you had the discipline to get up early and meditate every day. In fact, in the past when you have managed to do all these things, everything  has been so much better. But realistically you just don’t have the time, space or capacity to keep up with all the ‘should do things’ now you are a busy mother.

It’s time for a change!  

When there is a lot going on in our lives, we may tend to get a little stuck. Did you know that our bodies actually have the ability to heal themselves when given the right environment to heal in?

Here are some steps to getting un-stuck:

  1. You need to be heard, you need someone to really listen to you
  2. You need to step back and look at the whole picture
  3. You need to uncover the root cause of your current condition
  4. You need a solution that is individually prescribed for you, and your exact combination of needs.

How can you achieve theses steps?


It takes the totality of symptoms that you are experiencing and addresses them as one, bringing about lasting change, building resilience and promoting wellness in your journey towards optimal health. Once you are feeling strong, healthy and free of dis-ease, the world around you changes to support this new found peace that emanates from within.

The first time I saw a homeopath I was so relieved to have someone listen. I felt like there was someone able to look at my whole situation objectively. Not wanting to just give me a band aid to cover up my symptoms either, but to truly understand my current reality on all levels. To work towards addressing my symptoms from the root cause. I found that over time I have gotten to know myself so much better, and am able to make decisions that best support me and my health in the long term, not just a quick fix.

A homeopathic remedy will literally ‘shift’ your energy and enable you to make the right choices for you. It brings about clarity and understanding. There is no one-size-fits-all approach though. The remedy is individually prescribed to your exact life experience, mentally, physically and emotionally. It is the catalyst to healing.

The remedies are gently acting and allow you to heal from the inside out, and at your own pace. Whether that be in a few hours, or over a few months.

Although we as humans may experience similar feelings or physical symptoms, there are always very specific idiosyncrasies that are unique to us individually, and this needs to be accounted for during your homeopathic consultation.

As your life force/immunity starts to re align and you are feeling more energised, you will begin to notice the circumstances around you changing for the better. It’s almost like you attract a different outcome for the better.

Along with your new found energy and motivation, you can feel empowered to be the best you that you can be. You will be drawn to the right foods, exercise and supportive activities, and your stress levels can stabilise. This enables your ability to heal be optimised.

Not only have I personally experienced this energy shift after taking a remedy specific for me, but I also see it in my clients.

  • The mum in her 40’s with 3 kids that was prescribed the remedy Sepia, then finally actually hired a cleaner that she has been meaning to after 10 years of back pain and is now pain free and less overwhelmed
  • The woman in her late 30’s with a history of grief that she hadn’t allowed herself to process, resulted in chronic fatigue and thyroid imbalances. She is now comfortable with scheduling in a rest day once a fortnight. Her thyroid function has normalised and is no longer suffering with chronic fatigue after taking the remedy Nat Mur.
  • The single mum that realises she doesn’t have to ‘soldier on’ doing things she doesn’t feel comfortable doing. Now has significantly reduced anticipation anxiety after taking Arg Nit.
  • For the one that becomes strong enough to say NO to the extra glasses of wine in the evening that she usually uses to cope with the ‘witching hour’. Is now able to remain calm and happy after taking the remedy Nux vomica. Also her allergy symptoms are now barely present.

We need to realise that when we are happy, sleeping well and feeling strong our family will be happy, sleep well and feel strong. Our ‘energy’ influences the whole family so when we are feeling balanced so is the family.

Personally, I love it when mums experience the beautiful healing qualities of homeopathy. It is so gentle yet so effective, and can make the world of difference to daily life experience. It makes the journey so much more enjoyable. To regain confidence, strength, health, and empowerment of our self is the best outcome ever.

Homeopathic practitioners are available all over the world. So why not find your local homeopathic clinic or find one from our team on Homeopathy247. Get together for a consult and uncover the root cause of your current state of wellbeing and empower you to be a better mum, wife/partner friend, and best of all, You!

Be happy & healthy!
