The Beauty Of Integrated Medicine

It has been a wild old week for me (Megan). You may have seen my last post? It was a story about how I’d managed to move through a bout of the stomach flu with the help of homeopathy. Well… things took a turn for the worst. There I was feeling energised and healthy, getting ready for a road trip to Raglan for some waves, when BAM! I had a very sudden sensation of getting punched in the front of my neck. I turned to my homeopathic remedies for help first. These tied me over for one night. But the …

A Sunny Remedy Called Sol

I am a woman of pale substance. For as long as I can remember, I have suffered from at least one bad sunburn every summer. This is despite sticking to the shade, wearing sunscreen and staying indoors during the sunniest part of the day. I just burn up like a tissue after only minutes in the sun. The thing is, I love the beach and sunny days and being outdoors, so it has always been a bane to not be able to fully enjoy the summer weather. I also have two boys (who, thank goodness, have not inherited my ability …

How To Easily Heal and Prevent Cold Sores

The dreaded tingle. The tingle that makes you stop what you are doing and pay attention. That sinking feeling as you realize you have a cold sore beginning. Homeopathy can both hasten the healing of a cold sore and also prevent them from coming back. Cold sores are caused by the Herpes simplex virus which likes to make it’s home in the nervous system. This virus can sit quite dormant in the body. Our immune system can no longer keep this virus inactive when we are under stress. This could be the common cold, work or emotional upset. Common orthodox …

3 Gifts Gained During 2016

I have seen so many people complaining on Social Media about how hard 2016 was. For me, it was a gift. Sure, I had the odd challenge here and there but I thrived and feel like I’m hitting the ground running for 2017. Here are the gifts that I’ve received from 2016 both professionally and personally. Personally: I discovered that I have been suffering from Pernicious Anemia. It is likely to have plagued me for most of my life. Pernicious Anemia is an inability to absorb B12 and iron. I perfected my supplementation and my levels of these nutrients started …

When Getting Dressed is Too Hard – Depression

The name of this illness is something people either shy away from or overuse, but real depression is a silent fight against an invisible force that no one else can see, yet is is as real as the fingers on my hands that type this. Depression is not only a bona-fide illness, it’s a killer. As a child I lost an uncle to this illness, and although I was too young to know him well or understand what was going on, his absence in our family has always been palpable. Back then, no one understood what it was or what …

Common Homeopathic Remedies For Fevers

Fever serves a purpose in the body. It’s the natural response from the immune system to burn off infection. If you support the body during fevers with homeopathy often the disease that follows on is milder, whether that is the common cold or a childhood disease like chickenpox. Problems begin to occur when anxious parents mistakenly see fever as the enemy and they seek to work in opposition to the body’s fever response with strong chemical drug formulations designed to suppress the fever response. These anti pyretic formulations might be useful if the fever is threatening to spike over 40 …

Homeoprophylaxis – The Alternative Solution

When my first son was born, I was pretty sure I didn’t want to vaccinate, but I didn’t know what, if any, the alternatives were for immunisation. When I found out there was such a thing as homeoprophylaxis a few years later, I was excited. Here was what I had been looking for – a way to protect my children in a responsible and reasonable way, without the risks and side-effects of the conventional system. The thing is, I’m not anti-vaccination. Personally, I think that the original Louis Pasteur theory – using a part of the virus to stimulate an …

Thrush – the Candida Microbiome

Thrush – it’s a common problem in our clinics. Candida albicans exists in our systems naturally, but imbalance in the body can cause overgrowth of these little organisms and promote a whole host of issues, least of all the uncomfortable itching. Candida is a sign that the body is out of balance, whether it be from antibiotics or a stress, trauma or injury which has disrupted the system. Candida lives off sugars, which is why if you have thrush you’ll be craving sweets and carbs, and cutting out sugar in the diet can go a long way to getting the …
