The Mary Mac Show | Gift of Homeopathy with Dana Ullman, MPH, CCH

In Episode 165, we are honored to spend time with Dana Ullman, the renowned homeopathic expert, who teaches us how remedies help those grieving a loved one’s death.

Homeopathy is practiced worldwide by millions of people including royalty (Queen Elizabeth II), heads of state, presidents, religious leaders, sports superstars, corporate leaders, philanthropists (Mother Teresa), musicians, actors, women rights leaders, actors, even Russian Czars.

Years ago we had homeopathic hospitals in the United States and many used their remedies before reaching out to pharmaceuticals to help their ailments.

As allopathic drugs tend to suppress the issue, homeopathic remedies look to get to the root cause and cure it.

Homeopathic doctors and practitioners seek to dig deep and look for just the right remedy to help with a person’s emotional, physical and mental issues all at the same time.

If you are struggling with something that traditional doctors cannot help with, or if you want to live a healthier lifestyle, please connect with Dana Ullman in the contact area of his website.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

The Mary Mac Show | Gift of Simplicity I

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 162, we discuss how to simplify our surroundings and the way we live our life so we can lead a calmer everyday existence while we are working through our grieving process.

Often, when we are grieving a significant individual in our lives, we don’t take the time to consider how we can simplify things so we won’t feel so overwhelmed.

In this episode we look at various ways to decrease our tasks and pressure. It helps us to think through this process and minimize our lifestyle so we release additional pressure that is not needed.

If you can review your daily routine, and consider things we can let go of, we will have less struggle.

And when we’re grieving for someone so special, we need extra time to attend to our emotional needs.

Bless you,

xoxo

The Mary Mac Show | Helping Grieving Children and Teens at the Holidays

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 159, we begin to discuss how to help our youngest members of our family at Hanukkah and Christmas as they navigate what could be the first holiday season without their loved one.

Our children and even our teens lack the ability to convey their deep pain over losing someone so close to them and we need to express that for them.

Whether they are very young, 6-12 or our teens, our vulnerable children need our tender loving care.

They need our comfort, time, attention, and focus even though we ourselves are suffering.

But if they don’t get your guidance, they will start to search for it in the wrong places and this is not something you want to happen.

Listen in to learn how to comfort and care for your young people at this season.

Additional Notes – Some things that will help along this journey to ease the pain:

If you are having an especially difficult time emotionally, I recommend you speak with a specialist at a hotline near you. Here you will find hotlines all around the world. Trained counselors are there to listen, free of charge, to what’s going on with you. Take advantage of their great kindness. Vent with an objective individual. You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!

For parents and teens, there is an amazing resource where you can email or text counselors for help at The Boys Town National Hotline! Outstanding assistance for your children and you.

Visit Julie will help you and teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. Her videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward.

Here are some meditation music to help you rest.

You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy from most health food stores, either in person or online. Click on the little yellow bottle on this page. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.

I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.

*To find a homeopathic doctor, visit here or here. Many offer phone consultations if you cannot find one in your area. They work with patients around the globe. You can also research in your area of the world.

You may also wish to order my digital book on Holiday Grief to help you through this time, as well as learning more about How to Help a Grieving Child after a Loved One’s Death. Both are available here.

The Mary Mac Show | How To Prepare for The Holidays II

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In this week’s episode, we continue to discuss what to expect during the holiday season after a loved one’s death and how to help ourselves through the pain and overwhelm.

No matter which holidays we celebrate, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, or many others after a loved one has died or was killed, the holidays will feel differently as in previous years.

For those who are dealing with their first holiday season, it can be especially difficult as you don’t know what you might experience.

Trying to feel happy and enjoying the seasons as you did in the past, will be hard for you. It will be like no other holiday season.

The main thing to know is that you don’t have to do all you’ve done in the past.

You can decide on a different path. You can decrease your events and celebrations this year and there is nothing wrong with that.

Your emotional state is different now and you must be sensitive to that and treat yourself with more care.

Whereas you might have handled all the preparation, cooking, baking and hosting, this year it might be better to hand that off to another family member to take the lead. And you simply attend another’s event/s and take the stress off of yourself.

And remember to pick up my ebook Holiday Grief: How To Cope With Stress, Anxiety and Depression After a Loved One’s Death right here on my site on the left hand margin to help you.

Remember to be good to yourself, my warrior. Let others help you through this difficult time.
