Halloween Remedies

Fireworks are already exploding into the sky, day and night, not to everyone's delight. Animals, children and many adults, especially the elderly, are frightened by sudden loud bangs. Fear of sudden noises and an impact upon hearing are two problems not to mention the potential for serious burns.

Swine 'flu Homeopathy Remedies

The latest outbreak of Swine 'flu has well and truly set in here in Ireland and is spreading quickly. Claims that Tamiflu is the magic bullet have already met with scepticism in the press. So what can you do with Homeopathy? Quite a lot - Homeopathy has an excellent track record in epidemics - there is a statue of Hahnemann, the founder of Homeopathy, in Paris erected to him by a grateful Napoleon after he singlehandedly stopped a cholera epidemic in troops returning from the Russian front to name just one example. There are a range of tried and trusted 'flu remedies.

Here's the advice I've been working with so far.

(Please note the usual diclaimers apply - this does not constitute medical advice, is not intended to replace same or encourage self-diagnosis and is presented here for educational purposes only)

  1. Influenzinum 9c - take one dose every week for four weeks, and then, take the last dose one month later. This is intended as a strengthening/preventative measure.
  2. Oscillococcinum aka Anas Barb 200c. There are two names for this remedy. It's Anas Barb in Nelsons. This is to be taken on the first onset of 'flu symptoms. It should catch the early onset of the 'flu.
  3. The Indicated Remedy if you actually get the full blown 'flu, then give the indicated 'flu remedy according to the symptoms. Here's a good guide: http://www.hpathy.com/diseases/Swine-flu-symptoms-treatment.asp

    The indicated remedy in pandemics is usually very consistent and called the "genus epidemicus". This is narrowed down to a shortlist of three or less. When more information is gathered about the common symptoms of the 'flu in the UK & Ireland, this post will be updated with these common remedies.

    Update: The swine 'flu task force of the SPHQ in Canada is recommending a protocol involving the remedies Arsenicum, Baptisia, Pyrogen alongside Anas Barb - all in 200c

Allergies and Homeopathy

What are your allergies? We are constantly warned of nuts in food, dust mites, pollen and many more. Allergies are like phobias or panic attacks; they can come upon us without warning or as, in the case of Hay fever very much aware of the approach of the pollen season.

Irish School students Launch student clinic website

The 3rd year students at the Irish School of Homeopathy have lauched a swanky new website for their student clinic. The clinic is run as part of the 4 year practitioner course in the senior years and is overseen by a qualified and experienced practitioner. It's a great opportunity to receive very cost effective professional homeopathic treatment while helping student practitioners gain experience.

With the flu epidemic around, any useful remedies?

What I found a most useful remedy was Oscilliococcinum 200c worked a treat on me, then I had a relapse from a bit of the New years celebrations which were mild, a trip up a hill in sub zero conditions followed by a warm swim which has never been a good thing for me anyway.

We're back, after a tech glitch

And with an updated design too. The week before the Conference, the site's database hiccoughed and threw out the permissions for just anyone to look at the content. This has been fixed now and this site's CMS, Drupal, upgraded to the latest version.

That's why we're sporting a new look, too. With Drupal's default theme, Minelli.
