Homeopathic Support for Mineral Deficiencies

  omeopathy can both help support acute mineral deficiencies and chronic long-term ones where one seems to be unable to assimilate certain nutrients from their food.  The common ones that I see in my clinic are iron deficiencies but calcium can also be an issue both in young growing infants but also in menopausal women.  Other minerals that are deficient in our soil, such as zinc, can become useful homeopathic remedies in the process of bringing our clients towards health.

Eczema and the Homeopathic Direction of Cure

hen a person with eczema undergoes homeopathic treatment, the homeopath will have a clear perception of whether the case is going towards improvement or not due to the symptoms elicited from each prescription.  This is called the homeopathic “direction of cure”.   I think this simple piece of theory should be more generally known as it is a simple way for sufferers and parents of children with eczema to know if the child is truly benefiting from any kind of treatment they are receiving.    Our body organs operate as a whole, therefore if eczema is not managed correctly, it can actually …

Homeopathic Treatment for Measles and Whooping Cough

easles and Whooping Cough are both acute childhood diseases.  Acute childhood diseases have their own importance in a child’s developmental journey.  I have often seen that after having a childhood disease the child will often go through big developmental leaps.  If they were only speaking one word at a time, you might find that afterwards they will string a small sentence together; if their drawings were scribbles before, after they may start drawing identifiable trees and other objects.  For most people it is better to get these diseases in childhood (before adolescence) as a healthy, well-nourished child has plenty of vitality …

Bach Flowers for Stress and Turmoil

lower essences act gently but profoundly on a person’s emotional and mental state.  They give relief quickly and bring the person back into a state of balance and peace so that they can face their day and current challenges.  Have you ever had the feeling of waking up first thing in the morning, refreshed after a good sleep, energised and ready to face the day?  That initial feeling of being centred and peaceful often doesn’t last for long as we embark on our day and meet the challenges ahead.  Bach Flower Essences are wonderful at helping us maintain that peaceful …

Homeopathy for Grief and Emotional Trauma

  nything we have had an attachment to that is no longer in our lives or has sharply changed in form can bring up deep feelings of grief.  This could be the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship once held dear or even the loss of finances and possession. Think of the child who is keenly feeling the absence of one of their parents after a separation.  Grief can manifest as sadness, irritability, anxiety or disturbed sleep and if we don’t have the opportunity to move through it completely it can stay with us, influencing our …

Fighting the ‘Flu

t’s that time of the year again, when at least one person you know has had the flu! If you are anything like me, having the flu is a big interruption and not welcome in my busy schedule. Not to mention the fact that schools are back and the likelihood of passing the nasty bug is increased by many fold.  Naturopathy can be a great help with flu symptoms. Just this last week, my youngest daughter who is 4 years old started developing symptoms of a runny nose, tiredness, aching, coughing and complaining of a sore tummy, I immediately gave …

Children’s Learning Difficulties and Mineral Remedies

 see so many children in my clinic with learning difficulties that range from concentration problems right through to dyslexia and autism.  What I have noticed in my clinic and with my own daughter, is that a well prescribed remedy will really help to improve the child’s ability with reading or understanding maths.  Suddenly the communication within the brain and nervous system suddenly connects and comprehension, concentration and the ability to express in the written form becomes easier.  This change often has the effect of re-establishing the joy of learning which is so important to foster so that this can stay …

Calendula – A Salve for Wounds and Trauma

racticing homeopathy means that you never finish learning.  One remedy that is used by homeopaths and home prescribers alike is Calendula (Marigold).  Homeopathically, it is used to heal grazes and wounds.  It comes in the form of a topical tincture, cream or oral doses in the form of pillules or liquid.  Always make sure the wound is clean before you give this remedy so the skin does not heal over any dirt.  Calendula is a staple in my household.  It is invaluable for those really painful little grazes that children are so prone too, such as when they skin their …
