The Chamomile is a pretty flower, but in Homeopathic potency it is so much more.
One time in Gatwick Airport in London, a toddler was exploding into the worst tantrum I have ever seen, her poor mother was so overwhelmed and embarrassed. I felt her pain! And I had my travel sized homeopathic kit with me. Continue reading →
I first entered the world of alternative health therapies when I was a journalist on the Sunday Times, in the early Nineties. I quickly learned then how difficult it was to get a new therapy, which was having good results, accepted. In those days, my editor would insist that the paper couldn’t publish anything about a new therapy unless I found an orthodox doctor to comment on it favourably, or at least, neutrally. I’m sure you can imagine how difficult that was at first, until I gradually discovered which doctors were open to alternative health therapies and were more likely to give a fair comment.
Since then, the world of alternative or complementary therapies has taken off exponentially, but still there are the same battle lines drawn, so it seems, between orthodox medicine and us. And we always seem to be so much on the defensive, trying to justify using something that people have benefitted from in the East for thousands of years, but for which no or too little adequate testing has been performed to satisfy the requirements of orthodoxy.

After an inspection from March 31 to April 9 of this year, the FDA didn’t much like what it saw at GlaxoSmithKline’s Ste-Foy plant in Quebec, home of the company’s FluLaval influenza vaccines. Now, the agency has issued a warning, pointing its finger at the British drugmaker for not doing its part to avoid contamination.
In a warning letter dated June 12 and posted to the FDA’s website Tuesday, the regulator highlighted ongoing bacteria problems that have resulted in GSK tossing more than 20 per cent of the lots it has produced this year alone. Continue reading →
Fatigue, according to Dr. Edward Group, Diplomate of the American Clinical Board of Nutrition and the American Board of Functional Medicine, is a red flag that tells one that his or her body is suffering from an undesirable level of toxicity, exhausted adrenal glands, and dysfunctional gallbladder, colon and liver. After the body has undergone a good chemical, heavy metal, and parasite cleanse, one should consider changing his/her diet. Consumption of coffee and other stimulants should be lessened. Dr. Group lists five herbs which can be useful to combat fatigue at least until an individual takes the necessary steps to improve his or her health.
Let’s face it, sometimes there’s nothing better at the end of a long day than a glass of wine.
But sipping much more than that can wreak havoc with your shape, and not just by adding hundreds of calories to your diet. Alcohol temporarily keeps your body from burning fat, explains integrative medicine specialist Dr. Pamela M. Peeke, author of the book “The Hunger Fix.” Continue reading →
We are living in a time where the environment we inhabit is becoming more and more toxic to us. This is due to many factors, most of them created by corporate greed and a desire to monetise every natural thing, from the water we drink to our weather and our fertility.
We have no real idea what impact GMOs will have on our health, long term. Nor what nano-tech will unleash. But what we can do is optimise our individual vital force – we are designed to survive after all!
As a homeopathic practitioner, patients come to me with specific problems which are uniquely theirs. For example, one baby’s eczema is totally different from another baby’s. My headache will be completely different from yours. Homeopaths treat the individual’s symptoms, not the named condition.
But certain things are common to all of us and there is a range of cell salts called Biochemical Tissue Salts. Continue reading →
