INTRODUCTION

I lost one of my best friends on the “All Souls Day” (2nd Nov 2014) in an unfortunate turn of events in October 2014, as he was laid low by a Streptococcal bacterial infection that led him into septicemic shock (severe blood infection + abnormally low blood pressure). Dr. S.G. Venkatesh, a Research Scientist at the Cardiovascular Stem cell Research Center at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, USA was a happy, cheerful person bringing joy to all the people around him and his loss is being painfully felt by his family and friends. For someone who never cried, cribbed or complained as evident by 30 years of our friendship, the cruel hand of fate did him in, much to our chagrin. Coming as it did in the same year when the World Health Organization (WHO) had declared the year 2014 with a focus on antimicrobial resistance; it…

To clear my Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, I chose an integrated approach with lots of natural therapies and solutions that I’ve mentioned in previous blog postings.

At the end of October 2015, after just 6 chemo sessions, I received a clear scan.    To the horror and concern of my specialist, I declined further treatment and continued with my natural regime.  Today, I received a 2 minute phone call from my specialist telling me that my latest scan was also clear.  I was quietly confident but delighted to receive the confirmation call nonetheless.

When faced with the prognosis last July that I would be dead within a year, I reluctantly agreed to minimal chemotherapy.  If I’d followed medical guidance that required me to endure several months of treatment I would still have been be undergoing chemotherapy with the associated and increasingly rotten side effects and poor quality of life.

How to get rid of a Headache?

Science-based Homeopathy

 

How to Get Rid of a Headache

from wikiHow – The How to Manual That You Can Edit

A headache—that pain in your head, face, skin, or bones—is something most of us deal with from time to time. Depending on the severity, it can be a mild distraction or it can be the focus of our world. Mild to moderate headaches can be brought on by a range of problems, including stress, tiredness, tension, food, alcohol, exposure to noise, and colds.[1] To get rid of a headache, try the following tips and techniques.

Steps

  1. Identify the type of headache you’re experiencing. Most headaches are tension or lifestyle induced and aren’t harmful, even though they’re painful and can prevent you from fulfilling your tasks. If you experience frequent headaches, a severe headache, a headache that won’t respond to pain-killers, or the headache is accompanied by other symptoms, consult your…

Homeopathy – safe, gentle and effective…

I found this message recently on FB –
“Researchers Frei and Thurneysen evaluated rates of improvement and costs of care in 230 children with acute otitis media, treated with homeopathy versus placebo. They found that 72% of the children experienced less ear pain within 12 hours – with a high percentage better in just six hours. The rate of symptom improvement with homeopathy was 2.4 times faster than that in placebo controls.” (Frei H, Thurneysen A. “Homeopathy in Acute Otitis Media in Children: Treatment Effect or Spontaneous Resolution?” British Homeopathic Journal)

These are the sort of articles which just underline the importance of homeopathy as an alternative form of medicine for the whole family.
Particularly in children I have seen it again and again, that the correct remedy will help within minutes. My son used to suffer as a young child of quite violent earaches, usually accompanied by high fever. The throbbing pain came in waves, his right ear was bright red and hot; he would cry with the pain. The fever was a sure sign that his defence organism tried to fight the infection. The symptoms of the otitis media, the fever and the modalities all pointed to Belladonna. Commonly known as Deadly Nightshade, Belladonna is one of our outstanding remedies in acute inflammatory disease. Approximately 10 minutes after administering the first dose of the homeopathic remedy, he fell asleep, his breathing calmed down. Now sleep is a wonderful healer and we should never interrupt it to give anything else. When he woke a few hours later, the pain was considerably less and he felt slightly better. A sure sign that the remedy had started acting, hence no need for repetition. With a lot of TLC, frequent drinks of water with a splash of lemon juice, slowly introducing light food again, he made a full recovery within a couple of days.

 
Is one single dose really enough?
Often I get asked, if one single dose will be enough? Well, in homeopathy we understand the individual symptoms of our illness as the attempt of OUR organism to overcome the infection. By producing symptoms like inflammation, pain, fever, we are forced to slow down, rest, take notice of the disease (something, what adults often try to sweep under the carpet, as in our fast living society we cannot allow ourselves anymore to be ill – an error with consequences). These symptoms are the key to the necessary remedy, as only the correct remedy will have the desired effect to trigger the immune system. If we give the right remedy we will kickstart the organism and the healing will take place from within.
Why do children bounce back so quickly?
The speed of recovery depends on the strenght of our immune system. The stronger it is, the quicker we can heal; and children are usually quite healthy. We should re-learn to trust our ‘inner doctor’, as it is the way to naturally overcome dis-ease.
 
Important is the role of fever: it should never be suppressed, but understood as the first attempt to re-establish health – but this will be the topic of my next blog.

Help, I am going to jump again ….

So here I go, I am on the brink to another jump – I decided to go “BLOG”.
Sometimes I wonder, why I do these things, on the other side: I know about the importance of blogging.

It’s good to connect, spread the word and my passion about homeopathy, improve my visibility, but it will take some time to learn to do it properly.

I know that I am in the trusted hands of Jacqui Malpass and all eyes, ears and senses are focussing on her finger tips.
At the moment I feel like sitting on a bucking horse, not sure in which direction we will run – so watch the space.
