ASTROLOGY

ASTROLOGY

I wanted you to know that I’m now offering in-depth Astrology birth chart readings in addition to homeopathy consultations. Astrology has been close to my heart since I studied homeopathy in the 1980’s. It is a natural companion to homeopathy and with it I find I can help my patients/clients navigate through life’s tricky times and transformations. And I use it myself when I’m going through stressful times and find it provides a helpful context. A good Astrology reading can help with relationships, family, work and study. It can identify your strengths and weaknesses and allow you to creatively identify new and fulfilling paths. Sometimes strikingly so! Here’s a little story that I still remember. Some 20 years ago I did a reading for  a friend (let’s call him Gary). Gary was a professional photographer and in the course of the reading I told him that he wouldn’t be satisfied just doing photography and that he would want to do something like… open his own newspaper (astrology often provides me with creative insights- it allows me to tune in). He looked at me blankly as this meant nothing to him. I then lost touch with Gary until 2 years later when I bumped into him. ‘You’ll never guess what,’ he started enthusiastically, ‘you remember that astrology reading you did for me and you said that I’d want to open up my own newspaper… well I did. It came out of the blue and was completely unexpected’ There have been other examples where a client has told me how thankful they were as the reading opened new vistas and allowed them a new...
SUMMER REMEDIES

SUMMER REMEDIES

HERE COMES THE SUN! And for those of us who suffer through the long British winter it’s been a long time coming! Some of you with fair skin will be sensitive to too much sun and of course we are bombarded with warning about the risks of over exposure to the sun. But the other side of the coin is we need the sun to replenish our Vitamin D levels as this vitamin is essential for calcium metabolism. Less well known is that lack of vitamin D affects our mood and some people have found that taking a Vitamin D supplement in Winter can dramatically improve seasonal depression. Vitamin D Is not found naturally in many foods but fatty fish oils like salmon are a good source. So, I thought I’d give you a few homeopathic remedies and tips that may be useful in Summer. You can buy first aid kits at Helios Pharmacy (www.helios.co.uk) which are absolutely essential if you’re going on holiday. PROTECTION AGAINST HOLIDAY DIARRHOEA If you are travelling to a destination where the water quality is problematic or your diet is going to change somewhat it’s worth buying a PROBIOTIC (in capsules is handy) from a pharmacy or health food shop and taking one capsule a day for 3 days before you travel and then one a day while you are on holiday. I’ve found that really helps in keeping your gut healthy. SUNBURN Aside from using a good cream with an SPF, any cream or lotion containing Aloe Vera or Calendula is a good thing to have after mild sun exposure. It will soothe any rawness...

JUST ONE DROP – A New Film About Homeopathy

JUST ONE DROP – A New Film About Homeopathy

This film was almost blocked from being shown by a couple of mischievous complaints received by the cinema (for those of you who don’t know, there is a vociferous ‘sceptics’ lobby which would dearly like homeopathy obliterated from the landscape). The cinema threatened to withdraw the film unless a classification certificate was obtained. The good news is a certificate was obtained and is now in place (PG) and the one-off film showing is going ahead. The film itself explores the mystery, the controversy and the promise of homeopathy. This film has been painstakingly produced over a number of years with location shoots stretching from India to Australia to the US and UK. (I’ve had a sneak peek and it’s REALLY good!) Here are the details: Venue: Dukes at Komedia, Gardner Street, Brighton,BN1 1UN Date: Monday 10th April 2017 Time: 9pm The film lasts 65 minutes and afterwards you will be invited to stay for a Q&A with the film maker, Laurel Chiten. Just One Drop takes a no-holds-barred look at the most controversial form of medicine ever invented. Homeopathy treats the entire person, not just the disease. It’s a specific form of medicine that uses minute doses of a highly diluted substance that stimulates the body to cure itself. It is these tiny doses that causes the most controversy. Researchers believe there is a release of energy in water that becomes mysteriously dynamic. Others think it’s purely psychological or worse, a form of deception or quackery. Yet millions claim homeopathy cures even though there is not yet a satisfying scientific explanation. It remains a mystery. To book tickets follow this...
Vaxxed

Vaxxed

Vaccination is such a hot debate that I’m slightly reluctant to even go there. It creates a lot of passion, even anger, from those on both sides of the debate. But it is such an important topic that the lives of millions of children, both now and in the future, depend on the decisions we make right now. Last week I watched the documentary produced and directed by Andrew Wakefield and Del Bigtree. You will probably remember Andrew Wakefield as the doctor who was witch hunted and struck off the GMC register for alleged fraud in MMR vs autism research. Anyone who watches this film will realise that this decision by the GMC was misguided to say the least. The film is not anti-vaccine, and Andrew Wakefield is indeed a firm advocate of the single vaccines, but what it shows is corruption at the highest levels of government health organisations. A top scientist in the US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention broke ranks and provided clear evidence showing how the CDC fraudulently changed the data in MMR testing in order to push their vaccination agenda. This is bad enough. But I want to go a bit further and question the effect of measles vaccinations on the rate of infant mortality. Of course this is always what the pro-vaccine lobby and sponsoring governments want us to know. And one assumes that vaccination has had a major positive effect on this very important indicator. However, have a look at the graph below*. As you can see the infant mortality rate from measles had been coming down rapidly long before the measles...
WONDERFUL PLANTS

WONDERFUL PLANTS

Every homeopath knows Jan Scholten, the eminent Dutch homeopath, turned homeopathy upside down with his brilliant development of the periodic table. His theory of the minerals and elements allowed both new insights into remedies in current usage and the ability to predict the profile and themes of any element or salt, even those that have never been used or contemplated before. My experience of this has revolutionised my practice in the 20 years I have been using it. So you can imagine my excitement when Jan brought out his latest book, Wonderful Plants, a monster tome of some 900 pages (does this man ever go on holiday??), covering virtually every major plant family. Each family and plant species is classified using the periodic table as its basis. It’s like a homeopathic library system. The classification for each plant consists of 3 groups of numbers. If you’re coming to this for the first time then it can be a bit of a brain twister until you get used to it. It took me 4 years until it felt ‘in my bones’. Let’s take a well know remedy like Aconite as an example. This has the classification number 642.13.01: The first set of numbers is 642. This is like the territory in which the patient is operating or the core themes (ego, relationships, work, art, power etc). This leads us to the sub class Ranunculidae. The first 6 represents the theoretical potential of the patient and is derived from the series of the periodic table, 6 being the 6th series or Lanthanides (independent and reflective). The second number, 4 represents the desire of the patient,...
