These really are fascinating cases and some had been quite difficult before I came across the simillimum. Camphor is a remedy mostly used in acute cases but it has a very interesting chronic picture. I was lucky to come across two other cases where I used Mountain Laurel and Laurus Nobilis in quick succession. I will present the use of Heroinum in a complex Fibromyalgia case. Conchiolinum is a very interesting remedy and I have two cases to illustrate its...

REDUCING ANXIETY AROUND CORONAVIRUS

Perhaps like many of you I am saddened when I walk around the town to see so many people in fear, wearing masks, unable to make relaxed contact with others, awkwardly doing a little dance when coming across another person in the same supermarket isle. I have always taken the view that where possible a natural approach to health, with as little interference as possible, is best. And leading a full, active, unfettered life is normally our best insurance for our overall health. This is not just my view but is supported by many health experts too. In this blog I want to present some data to reassure you by putting things about this coronavirus in perspective and hopefully lower levels of anxiety (which is not good for health). In the UK an average of 17000 people die from ‘normal’ flu every year 650,000 people die from ‘normal’ flu globally every year Less than half of the global number of ‘normal flu’ deaths have died from or with Covid 19 so far this year Most of the deaths (88%) are of very elderly patients with other underlying diseases There are very few deaths from Covid 19 under the age of 50 Over 99% of people who carry the Covid 19 virus have no symptoms or just mild symptoms and recover very well The total emphasis on the virus is misplaced. We have an immune system that works very well for most of us. We can boost our immune system by eating well, adding in supplements where necessary (Vitamin C and D especially), making sure we get adequate outdoor exercise...

HOMEOPATHY AWARENESS WEEK 10-17 APRIL 2020

HOMEOPATHY AWARENESS WEEK With everyone’s eyes on COVID-19 it’s perhaps time to show how homeopathy can address the fear and anxiety that seems to be sweeping the UK. Homeopathy has long been known to support an individual’s health and homeopaths have shared insight, knowledge and wisdom and time honoured evidence and experience to confirm that homeopathy is an effective system of medicine that works with and corresponds to all the laws in nature. Homeopaths understand how to support the immune system during the effects of any virus or bacteria. And throughout history homeopathy has proved efficacious in many of the epidemics that have befallen humanity, not least in the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic. To celebrate HOMEOPATHY AWARENESS WEEK I am offering a homeopathy session to anyone with flu or post flu symptoms for just £40 per session.* This is less than 50% of my normal follow up session rate. Sessions will be conducted by video (Skype, Zoom, FaceTime etc). Go to http://jonathanstallick.com/online-booking/ to book your session. * Maximum 3 sessions. Offer valid until 17.4.2020. Remedies will be sent from a homeopathic pharmacy and will be chargeable. For non-flu related cases, normal rates will...

A SWISS DOCTOR WITH REASSURING NEWS ON CORONOVIRUS

Maybe you are tired of hearing about COVID 19. But the following is very interesting, reassuring and cuts through the fear and hysteria. A Swiss medical doctor provided the following information on the current situation in order to enable people to make a realistic risk assessment. Note from Jonathan Stallick RSHom. Homeopathy can dramatically improve immunity and has a long successful history treating symptoms of flus that do occur. Click here to make an appointment.  According to the latest data of the Italian National Health Institute ISS, the average age of the positively-tested deceased in Italy is currently about 81 years. 10% of the deceased are over 90 years old. 90% of the deceased are over 70 years old. 80% of the deceased had suffered from two or more chronic diseases. 50% of the deceased had suffered from three or more chronic diseases. The chronic diseases include in particular cardiovascular problems, diabetes, respiratory problems and cancer. Less than 1% of the deceased were healthy persons, i.e. persons without pre-existing chronic diseases. Only about 25% of the deceased are women. The Italian Institute of Health moreover distinguishes between those who died from the coronavirus and those who died with the coronavirus. In many cases it is not yet clear whether the persons died from the virus or from their pre-existing chronic diseases or from a combination of both. The two Italians deceased under 40 years of age (both 39 years old) were a cancer patient and a diabetes patient with additional complications. In these cases, too, the exact cause of death was not yet clear (i.e. if from the virus or from their...

CORONAVIRUS: A SENSIBLE APPROACH

The world is in “freak-out mode” due to the new Coronavirus, but homeopaths are not nearly as concerned about it…and for good reasons. Put your mind at ease…… some good info from Homeopathic Educational Services: Homeopathy & the Coronavirus: Homeopathic treatment has had a long history of success in treating people suffering from various viral infections. Oscillococcinum is helpful for the common flu virus and four controlled clinical studies have confirmed its efficacy. The many successes from the homeopathic treatment of the 1918 flu epidemic provides additional support for the efficacy of homeopathic medicines. Personal experiences with Influenzinum has found safe results in defending against and preventing the flu. The worst problems occur when people get a viral infection and then use fever-reducing drugs, such as aspirin or acetaminophen. Because fever is an important defense of the body, suppressing fever can be dangerous. Please realize that the media is creating an atmosphere of FEAR! Sadly and strangely, they are not reporting on these facts: — No deaths occurred in children aged 9 years and younger, but cases in those aged 70 to 79 years had an 8% fatality rate and those aged 80 years and older had a fatality rate of 14.8%.. — The vast majority of people who died from this virus had a pre-existing condition, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respoiratory disease, or cancer. — There is a higher incidence of death in MEN in China, seemingly due to the fact that so many more men smoke tobacco than do women. Hearing reports from China, homeopaths there report that the symptoms of people who get the Coronavirus point towards...

HOMEOPATHY REALLY IS OUT OF THIS WORLD!

You know, it’s bad enough trying to persuade sceptics that nano doses of substances can do anything. Quack medicine they cry! But then there’s the category of remedies we call imponderabilia which, in an earlier age, would probably have resulted in homeopaths being excommunicated or worse! So what are the imponderables? Well they include remedies such as Sol (sunlight), Luna (moonlight), X Ray, Spectrum (refracted light) and the light of planets such as Venus, Saturn and Jupiter. Light of planets!?? How on earth (excuse the pun) can a light from a planet be a remedy! Well, the light from the planet is focussed through a powerful telescope onto powdered milk sugar which is then diluted further with more milk sugar to form a homeopathic trituration. And the idea is that something of the energy from that light source communicates itself via the remedy as the essence of the source. It may sound crazy but homeopaths have been getting reliably good results over the last 200 years using such remedies and as Shakespeare famously quoted: “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” Recently I had the opportunity to see Light of Venus at work as a remedy. One lady patient has had Glaucoma for many years with gradually reduced eyesight. She has received many remedies from myself and other reputable homeopaths. But so far nothing has touched this aspect although she has been helped in many other ways. Chris Wilkinson RSHom has conducted a very interesting proving of Venus Stella Erans (or Light of Venus) and using this and aspects of my patient I have come up with...

BUTTERFLIES AND MOTHS IN HOMEOPATHY

I recently gave a butterfly remedy called Silver Spotted Skipper (Epargyreus clarus) to a young lady who was artistic but had difficulty manifesting her artistic talents. Her childhood was characterized by a lack of guidance by her parents and she got in with the “wrong crowd”. She then “flitted” around from place to place, unable to settle and felt frustrated in life. Physically she had constant vertigo. Following the prescription (which really helped her) she remembered a few years previously having recurring dreams and visions of moths everywhere in her life. The Butterfly and Moth remedies fulfill a very important role in our material medica. Patricia le Roux was the homeopath (now sadly passed) who did more for our understanding of these beautiful creatures. Nancy Herrick also did a wonderful proving of the Limenitis butterfly which contained many of the general butterfly themes. I believe these beautiful yet ephemeral insects could be used a lot more in our practices. So I thought in this blog I would explore the themes of a few of these butterfly and moth remedies*. *With thanks to Patricia le Roux, Lou Klein, Pat Maher, Enna Stellinga   THEMES OF BUTTERFLY AND MOTH REMEDIES Neglected or unsupervised children or children in danger Lack of guidance as a child Innocent, immature, incomplete transitions, delayed development Gender/sexuality confusion; cross dressing, transexuality Loves clothing, beauty, silk Fine slender build Peter Pan/ nymph-like Sexual boundary issues esp. between children and adults Desire to protect children; working with children (e.g. teachers) Own world, dreamy, in a cocoon, play, amusement, fun Grief over loss of child; sudden loss of children/parents Dreams...

THE SPIRIT IN THE MACHINE

“The human body is often likened to a high performance machine…” So begins an article I saw today in the Daily Mail by the wonderful Bill Bryson. Bryson goes on to implore us to behold the wonder of our bodies. But it set me thinking how differently homeopaths conceive of our bodies than most conventional medics. Most graduates from medical school do think of the body like a car with an engine with more or less replaceable parts. But it goes further than that. Disease is seen as something separate from us. Something we need to fight, whether it be bacteria, viruses or cancer. Even the language use is indicative: We say “I have a flu” (the flu is separate from us);  might it be more accurate to say “I am flu-ing.”? And this leads to an aggressive concept of drugging to counter the perceived external threat with anti-biotics, anti inflammatories, anti-depressants etc. Homeopathy has a radically different idea. Firstly symptoms are not the disease. Imagine the oil light in your car comes on ( a symptom of low oil). The conventional medical parallel would be to rip out the car light or at least stop it from lighting up. But then when the engine fails everyone denies the connection. Just an unrelated incident. Homeopaths have a concept that the medics may think of as pure woo-woo! The “Vital Force”. Sounds a bit Star Wars doesn’t it. But in fact the Vital Force exists in many traditional medicine cultures (in India it’s “Ki”; in China it’s known as “Qi”) The Vital Force in homeopathy is the energy field that keeps us healthy but also...

SCEPTICAL MUM AMAZED AT HOW HOMEOPATHY HELPS HER TEEN SON WITH CRIPPLING SOCIAL ANXIETY

“I had little belief in homeopathy until I met Jonathan. I had just moved into Brighton and my 17 year old son was living with me. He was unable to attend college or get a job due to crippling social anxiety and depression that had been going on for 5 years since his father had left the family. Jonathan encouraged me to try homeopathy even though I’d had no experience of it and, frankly, was rather sceptical. The change in my son was nothing short of amazing. He was soon able to attend college and take a job. I firmly believe Jonathan’s homeopathic remedies to be the start of his recovery”. Ms LA  This is not an uncommon situation. Many teens go through a phase of anxiety as part of their growing pains. My 30 years as a registered homeopath has shown me that Homeopathy can help reduce anxiety and bring mental and emotional balance. Homeopathy is great for families!

SCARLET FEVER AND THE DEADLY NIGHTSHADE CONNECTION

Today on the BBC News website I read: A new strain of group A streptococcus, which is able to produce significantly more toxin, is spreading in England and Wales, scientists say. Strep A causes a range of infections, from a sore throat to scarlet fever. The new strain’s emergence, reported in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, coincides with a rise in rare but potentially deadly invasive infections. However, it does not explain the mysterious surge in scarlet fever cases during the past five years It got me thinking about how we homeopaths go about treating Scarlet Fever and the use of Deadly Nightshade (or Belladonna) as one of the main homeopathic remedies in treating this condition. The history of poisonous Belladonna, used as a homeopathic remedy makes fascinating reading… The original proving of belladonna was conducted by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (the founder of homeopathy). Dr. Hahnemann described prophylactic effects of the medicine when used in treatment for scarlet fever. Interestingly, he discovered the potential prophylactic effect during an outbreak of scarlet fever in 1799, when three children of four in a family under his care became ill. The fourth, who was usually the first to become ill, remained free from disease. Dr. Hahnemann reasoned that since the child had been taking belladonna for an affliction of the finger joints, she was in some way protected from the infection. Dr. Hahnemann continued to make frequent use of belladonna during this epidemic with great success. So great was his success that many conventional physicians adopted his treatment protocol and began singing the praises of homeopathic belladonna. Dudgeon reports on 10 allopathic physicians...

4 COURSES OF ANTIBIOTICS FAILED AND THEN HOMEOPATHY STEPS IN…

I’ve nothing against mainstream medicine. In emergencies particularly it’s fantastic. But sometimes it just doesn’t work.  I’ve just treated a young child for repeated ear infections and eczema. Here’s what mum had to say about homeopathy… “My 18 month old daughter India suffered with terrible eczema and repeated ear infections. Constant trips to the doctors resulted in four courses of antibiotics and no improvement whatsoever. From the moment we sought Jonathan’s help everything changed. Now after only a couple of weeks her ear infections and eczema have completely cleared up. I can’t recommend Jonathan highly enough!”HM, Brighton. This is just one example of the wonderful healing potential of homeopathy. Safe, Natural, Effective. Homeopathy can help depression • anxiety • panic attacks • stress • high blood pressure • chronic fatigue • M.E. • period problems • hot flushes • asthma • thyroid disorders • eating disorders • hay fever • autism • ADHD • IBS • ulcerative colitis • arthritis • eczema • dermatitis • allergies • injuries • ear, nose and throat issues • colds • flu • migraines • urinary infections • sciatica • insomnia • pregnancy problems • infertility • prostate problems • chemotherapy/radiotherapy side effects • HIV-related symptoms… and more Book your FREE 30 minute chat with me to find out how homeopathy can help you and your family.

Amber Cures the Blues

I’m one of those poor souls that gets SAD when Autumn and Winter come. I feel like I’m walking in a fog, lost in a fog actually! I’m trapped in my head. All problems seems 10 x worse and I’m counting the weeks till Spring returns. I decided to take things into my own hands and I repertorised Delusion: Lost and < Cloudy Weather. Up pops Succinum Purum (latin for Amber). I took a dose and so far I’m back in my body. My vital energy has returned and feel relatively normal. The homeopathic proving of Amber is actually very interesting. It was conducted by the great Irish homeopath Nuala Eising. Nuala considers Amber to be one of our deep polycrest remedies. Issues of feeling displaced (like immigrants… I’ve actually just moved to a, for me, strange town in Hastings), or not belonging to your family came up. These immigrants sometimes make a fantasy about their homeland, or adopted children can make a fantasy about their natural family. Together with this there is a tremendous restlessness that makes us think of Tuberculinum. There is also a ‘veneration for the sun’ (amber was considered in ancient times to be solidified rays of the sun) which reminds us of SAD that so many suffer. And there is a feeling of being trapped which is interesting as many insects got trapped in the sticky resin that became amber over millennia. So I’m putting this out there in case Amber could be a great remedy for SAD. Please write to me if you have any good stories of using Amber in this way.  ...
