Since the lockdown in 2020, It has influenced our lives in many ways, to a greater or lesser extent, in terms of our lifestyle patterns and ways of thinking.


Due to the changes in the way we work, such as remote work, we now have more time to reflect on ourselves, breathe new life into our lives, and notice things we didn't before.


Working from home has become a popular choice as it offers flexibility and allows one to spend more time at home. It also provides us with an opportunity to reflect on our lifestyle and make positive changes. We may discover new things during this time.


Due to the lockdown, there has been a significant increase in inquiries about anxiety and worry at pharmacies. Additionally, people have taken this opportunity to consult with me about their anxieties and worries, which have also been on the rise.


It is continued…


At the beginning of the lockdown, there was not much information about the outbreak, and modern medicine was still trying to find a way to respond to the reports on the number of infected people and deaths, as well as the symptoms. Many of you may have felt "anxiety about things you can't see."


Moreover, many people have felt sad because they were unable to witness the last moments of a loved one, such as a family member, or because they were unable to attend the funeral of a loved one.


For some people, an event like this may come as a shock, triggering their emotions and causing symptoms to surface.



#1 Trauma “memories locked in your body”


There are various traumas locked in the body from obvious ones like experienced wars, car accidents, and death of loved ones to hidden ones like repeated suppressed emotions from daily life.

Or some small emotional events accumulate and become memories that are locked inside the body.


As a result, people may experience symptoms such as anxiety, panic, depression, and worry even though they have not had any particularly stimulating experiences.


Sometimes, people don’t have obvious experience, but they start to feel anxiety, panic or depression from little unrecognised emotional patterns.


People gain wisdom through experience and learn how to live their lives so as not to make the same mistakes.


Especially in Japan, there are invisible “rules” called “Sekentei (respectability)”, These are typical rules when you grow up.


"Don’t make other people distressed"


“You must behave with good manners in public”


"Be considerate of others before yourself"


A certain amount of manners and consideration are necessary to live in society, but after coming to England, I came to feel that there is something more to Japan than that.


Invisible trauma is a type of trauma that we experience in our everyday lives when we repeatedly do things that we don’t want to do without even realising it. This happens due to invisible rules such as respectability.


Over time, these actions can have a significant impact on our mental and emotional well-being as they take us away from our true desires and purpose.


#2 When the body's memories respond


When people feel in danger, they change into battle mode and try to protect themselves. On the other hand, some may also feel fear and avoid getting close. Others may "freeze up" out of fear.


When individuals undergo traumatic experiences, some of them are capable of confronting and processing their emotions. Conversely, others are apprehensive about confronting their fears and instead resort to evading their true emotions, such as engaging in excessive drinking or drug use or constantly attending social gatherings.


Anyone does not like facing negative emotions such as “grief”, “anger”, or “loneliness”.


However, repeatedly avoiding true emotions may trigger panic, anxiety, or worry.


For example,


Panic relieves the actual shock from freezing your body activities.


Anxiety is trying to avoid the same traumatic experience.


Worries are preventing the same trauma or hurt.


Some anxious individuals may have an underlying tendency not to trust others. They may need to check everything themselves and cannot rely on others. This feeling of not being in control may stem from “mistrust” and the need to create a safe and secure environment for survival.


When someone invades this safe area, they may be angry as their defence mechanism.


In this case, they may remember the old trauma and be emotional, but at the same time, they experience old trauma in the new form at the present.


Defence reactions from accumulated trauma can cause anxiety and panic, even in seemingly unexpected situations.


When I have consultations with clients, they say “There is no big trauma in my life”, but they suffer from fear or anxiety.


Your body stores small and large traumas and expresses your emotions through physical reactions.


Understanding and resolving trapped body memories is key to healing.



#3 Drawing out of the old trauma and change into the healing


Homeopathy and flower essences can help release trapped emotions and promote healing.


Inner Child Healing or Journey Therapy helps individuals confront past traumas and create positive change to support their healing journey.


Certain individuals may encounter temporary discomfort while undergoing an awareness process. The response to remedies and essences varies from person to person. Even at pharmacies, we sometimes come across customers who report, "I was prescribed a remedy by a homeopath, but I feel uncomfortable and do not like it.”


In this case, we suggest that you discuss this with your homeopath, as it indicates that the homeopath has selected the most appropriate remedy for you.


Many individuals feel relieved and interpret it as a positive response to the remedy.


I am prescribing individualized homoeopathic remedies or flower essences to support the healing journey of specific symptoms.


Although this process is easy to describe, for some people it can be a challenging period. The key is whether the person is ready to accept the process when problems arise.


Some people may feel like giving up midway through, but it is important to remember that this challenge is temporary, not permanent.


In homeopathy, healing progresses from new symptoms to old ones (Law of Cure).

For example, after a person with dermatitis may believe their skin has healed, their previous digestive symptoms may resurface.


If you are suffering from trauma, anxiety, or worry, it is recommended that you seek a detailed consultation with a homeopath.

When you feel stressed or anxious, these remedies can help you. However, you need to talk to a full history with a homoeopath if these symptoms repeatedly come back.
