Homoeotherapy not only helps transform our future, it is also a wonderful balancer, especially during urgent or sensitive periods. It can be used to settle nerves, adjust to change and energise as well as promote better health through nutrition and a stronger resource of vitality. For first-day jitters, Emergency Essence offers comfort, reassurance and courage. Also a good one for parents and teachers who may experience panic or distress during the transitioning. Serdop Liq, fondly referred to as ’Teacher’s Pet’, helps balance neurotransmitters, helping mood, motivation and social anxiety. Norsan Total Fish Oil is a key component in healthy cognition functioning. Memory Liq can be a useful aid for those preparing for exam years. Sleep Ease can help encourage normal sleeping patterns, ensuring the body and organs are sufficiently rested during the night. Improper sleep is a common cause of general health issues and everyone needs the time at night to reset and prime themselves for optimal functioning. Vibracell is always a reliable supplement, providing all the vitamins, minerals and trace elements a body needs to maintain physical and mental conditioning. Used daily, this cold-pressed fruit & vegetable concentrate can combat fatigue or weariness.

Children love the taste and it’s a clever way of encouraging more water consumption too. For those with a jam-packed after-school schedule, Dynamis Essence encourages enthusiasm, drive and stamina whilst harmonising one’s vital force. Pencils, books and remedies at theready; you are armed for success.

Dr Peter Fisher

It is with sadness and regret that we extend our condolences to Dr Fisher’s family, friends and colleagues on his untimely passing.

Dr Fisher, homoeopathic physician to Queen Elizabeth II, was an enlightened and loyal supporter of homoeopathy, currently serving as President for the Faculty of Homeopathy. He was generous with his time and knowledge and highly regarded within medical, research and integrative healthcare communities.  Most recently, he was chair at the ‘New Horizons in Water Science’ conference in London.

His commitment is something we are all grateful for. May he always be remembered and honoured for his passion and participation within CAM.

Discourse continues after Monsanto Ruling

In recent days, a US jury have found Monsanto, producer of Roundup – a herbicide containing glyphosate – liable in the case  of a man who claims his lymphoma was caused by their weedkiller.

Whilst some research has suggested glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic”, as reported by the International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2015, debate still reigns.

Nevertheless, it is important to weigh up all potential health risks when looking at the well-being of a person. The backbone of Homoeotherapy looks at individualised exposure to toxicity or environmental concerns and how well-equipped organs of elimination are to process natural levels of pathogens or pollution. Similarly, how strong are the body’s resources or cellular integrity. The proverb ‘it takes a village’ seems apt in the balance of argument.

CAM Practitioners have already been using Homoeotherapy to assist the body in addressing exposure to chemicals or detrimental substances and will continue to examine ill health as a complete picture, not just singular infractions outside of the context of the whole person.

Conference: New Horizons in Water Science – Evidence for Homoeopathy?

Conference Chairman, the Honourable Lord Ward-Atherton with Martin Murray

Last week, we had the honour of attending the much-anticipated international conference which presented scientific research on the role Quantum Physics plays in the life of the planet, its impact on health and how it supports the underlying science of Homoeopathy.

Nobel Laureate Professor Luc Montagnier is well known for his research in chronic diseases and the role of viruses. He spoke of the consequences of environmental pollutants, such as pesticides, and the potential link between toxicity and the growing levels of adverse health conditions such as Autism and Lyme.

Professor Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate from the University of Cambridge, discussed water structures and how water behaves in given circumstances, underlining its suitability and potential contribution to health.

Professor Gerald Pollack, Executive Director of the Institute for Venture Science in the US, discussed beautifully the nature and structure of water, the manner of how water reacts to actions, forming what he calls an ‘exclusion zone’ between surface and body as measured under laboratory conditions.

Russian Professor Vladimir Voeikov talked about how structured water plays a key role in vital processes and how the dilution and succussion plays significant roles in the actions of water.

Dr Robert Verkerk, Alliance of Natural Health, presented a thought-provoking piece on sustainable healthcare and the role CAM can play in a changing paradigm of healthcare which places emphasis on wellness outcomes rather than placing total reliance on pre-released clinical trials.

Dr Menachem Oberbaum, Director for the Centre of Integrated Complementary Medicine, Jerusalem, informed delegates of homoeopathic research in his country, with clinical evaluations measuring patient outcomes from both CAM therapies and conventional treatments.

Dr Raj Kumar Manchanda, Director General of the Central Council for Research into Homoeopathy in India, spoke at great length on the developing role Homoeopathy plays in the health service in his country. CAM therapies now have an entirely separate regulatory and administrative system within their national health service.

Lord Ward-Atherton brought together an outstanding group of researchers who have worked for many years and accumulated an extensive database of research data. The community is indebted to him for his vision, belief and leadership in bringing together this meeting of great minds.

Justice for Homoeopathy

You may be familiar with the 2015 Australian Report issued by the National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) suggesting that homoeopathy does not work.

Following its release, an investigation by the Australian Homeopathic Association was launched into the NHMRC’s conduct. The report published by them was the second report commissioned and questions have been asked of their reviewing methods, the impartiality of the committee, the findings published, and the whereabouts of the first report.

Subsequent complaints have been raised with the Commonwealth Ombudsman and after initial assessment, the complaint was found to merit a full investigation.

Release The First Report is a global campaign inviting supporters of integrative healthcare and justice to lobby the Australian government to publish the initial report and make right the unfair discrimination against homoeopathy.

Summer Travel Plans

With holiday upon us, we encourage you to pack some basic essentials which can help weather common complaints while away. Preventative measures are often the easiest way to encourage a smooth and enjoyable vacation. For all Home-Use Kits, we encourage the inclusion of BAC and VIR. BAC is a wonderful remedy to help with tummy upsets and it’s also a great hand sanitizer. No more sticky residue, this is gentle to both the skin and immune system. VIR can be used to help safeguard against nasty bugs and viruses. Take a week beforehand to help prepare the body and strengthen natural responses. As most of us plan to relax and enjoy our holidays for a week or two, Hepex, the homoeopathic liver cleanser, is a courteous way of showing our liver that we do care about it and we are very grateful for all its important detoxification efforts on our behalf.  Microflora Liq. is a homoeopathic probiotic which helps strengthen natural immune responses. It can also help alleviate mild digestive complaints.  If upset stomachs and delicate constitutions are your particular weak areas while travelling, consider Digestive System Liq. It also works wonders after a heavy meal or over-indulgence. ADI may also come in handy for bouts of diarrhea. Remember to stay well hydrated throughout your travels also.

For those of you who take great pleasure in the sun and high temperatures, Australian Bush Flower Essences provide a lovely remedy called Mulla Mulla, which can help with sunburn. It’s great mixed with our own Vitamin E cream but can also be taken internally. It reduces the negative effects of the sun’s rays and encourages feelings of comfort with heat. For those preparing their bodies for the beach, or for people who find they suffer from sun burn, pack the versatile and luscious Argiltubo Clay Mask. Made from Sicilian green clay, this ready-to-use face and body mask can help sooth red or burnt skin. It also improves the look of skin tone, firming and refreshing the appearance of fine lines, stretch marks and cellulite. Its exfoliating and anti-ageing action is another reason this mask is so popular, and it also soothes the appearance of acne and pimples.

Australian Bush Flower Essences also offers a Travel Essence which is great for jet lag. It helps people feel more balanced when they arrive at their destination, especially if they find travelling disorientates, depletes or drains them. For those of nervous disposition, travel with our own ANX. This is a popular first-aid remedy for all sorts of trials and tribulations and it helps restore a sense of calm and peace for those who feel agitated and anxious. It can be particularly helpful for those who don’t enjoy flying. Speaking of which, don’t forget some Algin, to help counteract the negative effects of airport travel. Often people find themselves quite unbalanced after flights. This can also be due to the disruption of the central meridian equilibrium. So keep in mind how the environment around you makes you feel and how it can affect you and your wellness.
