Honestly, after reading this title, it got my hackles up. I hear so many untruths, blanket statements by doctors or trolls on the internet, saying homeopathy doesn't work, homeopathic medicines don't have drug identification numbers, homeopaths are not regulated, and homeopathy is a placebo.

First of all homeopathy does work. I can tell you of many patients who were helped tremendously by it. There are many many studies one can find that homeopathy does in fact work much better than just a placebo. Homeopathic medicines do have drug identification numbers, they are called HIN, homeopathic identification numbers now. Homeopaths in Ontario are regulated by the government. Frankly, I do have a degree in science from University of Toronto but I don't care about scientific research. I care about people and their results. Here is a good little article written by an Indian lady about these issues. Read on

Interestingly, homeopathic remedies have been found to be beneficial for the treatment of sepsis. In practice I don't see any cases of sepsis, because they are usually in the hospital and at this time homeopaths are not in a hospital setting. However, a study done in another country, found homeopathy to be useful in these cases by Frass M, Linkesch M, Banyai S, Resch G, Dielacher C, Lobl T, Endler C, Haidvogl M, Muchitsch I, Schuster E (2005). Adjunctive homeopathic treatment in patients with severe sepsis: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in an intensive care unit. Homeopathy; 94:75–80.

I have had many cases of people suffering with psoriasis over the years. I have used many homeopathic remedies that were suited to people's symptoms ranging from arsenicum album to tellurium met. Each person that comes in is different and presribed remedies suited to their symptom picture.

An interesting study, finds that a mother tincture called mahonia, may be a good tincture to employ.  Bernstein S, Donsky H, Gulliver W, Hamilton D, Nobel S, Norman R (2006). Treatment of mild to moderate psoriasis with Reliéva, a Mahonia aquifolium extract - a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. American Journal of Therapeutics; 13:121-126.

In practice however, I find many remedies are useful for the condition, not just one. If you need more support, contact us for a free get acquainted chat.

Many women needlessly suffer with PMS. The current medical treatment is antidepressants, which leads to a whole list of side effects including weight gain. Women who suffer with PMS can be helped with diet, supplements such as evening primrose oil, magnesium and herbs. A recent study found that homeopathy helps the symptoms of PMS quite well. Homeopathy is suited to the symptoms of the individual. If you want a homeopathic tune up, contact us for a free get acquainted chat.

The 500-patient survey at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital showed that many patients were able to reduce or stop conventional medication following homeopathic treatment.9 The size of the effect varied between diagnoses: for skin complaints, for example, 72% of patients reported being able to stop or reduce their conventional medication; for cancer patients there was no reduction.

An observational study at Bristol Homeopathic Hospital included over 6,500 consecutive patients with over 23,000 attendances in a 6-year period.6 Seventy percent of follow-up patients reported improved health, 50% referring to major improvement. The best treatment responses were reported in childhood eczema and asthma, and in inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, menopausal problems and migraine in adults. Similar patient-reported outcomes have been reported from the UK’s other four NHS homeopathic hospitals.7-10Bristol Homeopathic Hospital

An extroidinary number of young adults suffer from depression. It can be linked to a poor diet, lack of sleep and physical activity. The pressures on teens to be 'on' with social media and electronics, takes away from that personal connection we have with human beings. Homeopathy is an excellent tool for these people because it is safe and gentle. Remedies have no side effects, but are strong enough to be very effective, because they are tailor suited to the individual's symptoms.

The natural healing power and goodness of black rice has been very well noted in modern times. Loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin E, fibre, and valuable anti-inflammatory properties, this special rice is truly remarkable in its abilities. What’s really incredible about Black Rice is the fact that it contains even more antioxidants (per serving) than blueberries; which are famous for their anti-ageing properties. The main thing that separates Black Rice from all the other varieties of rice is its amazingly strong antioxidant properties; which come from its pigment. This is the same type of pigment found in other types of antioxidant rich foods such as the many varieties of berries. Black Rice has been eaten in regions of Asia for thousands of years; in fact for centuries it was reserved for only Chinese royalty. Today this type of rice is picking up in popularity and popping up in more health food stores across the US, Australia, and Europe, as people discover the numerous health benefits that whole grain black rice has to offer. In ancient times, Chinese Emperors reserved this wonderfully nutty rice for their own consumption because it was thought that it would extend their lives. Black Rice does provide many health benefits that we are just finding out about now; including prevention and treatment of very serious ailments. Avoiding diseases and conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, and others is surely a great way to extend the length and quality of your life. In China, black rice has been known for being good for the kidneys, stomach and liver since ancient times. In addition to its healing and nutritious qualities, it would seem that Black Rice was also considered to be somewhat of an aphrodisiac at one time. It is highly likely that the Emperors down throughout the ages probably shared their Black Rice stock with their consorts or concubines. Read more
