Homeopathy Information Evening, Wed 11th April at Bodkin's Bar, Kingsvalley Hotel, Merlin Park, Galway at 6.30pm.
Hay Fever Time Is Here Again.
Having survived the asthma attacks of the winter now is the time to prepare for Hay fever and other airborne allergies.
Listed below are the common Homoeopathic remedies with a few key symptoms to help you find one that can reduce or even clear the problem. But where there has been a history of Hay fever professional advice should be sort.
Most remedies that can be bought at the local Health Store or Chemist will be either as 6C or 30C. The well indicated remedy is more important than the potency. 6Cs can be taken up to 4 times a day and 30C perhaps twice a day . When symptoms change, stop taking the remedy but if there is no change then do consult your local Homoeopath as there may well be an underlying factor that reduces the effectiveness of any remedy.

At the end of last November the UK Natural History Museum hosted a debate between Dr Peter Fisher, Clinical Director of the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and Dr Ben Goldacre, medical writer and broadcaster, known for his "Bad Science" articles in the Guardian.
It's also worth seeing for the discussion among many homeopaths after the debate. The star of the show has to be Fisher's forensic deconstruction of the Shang et al, study on the basis of which the Lancet declared the "End of Homeopathy". Making a strong argument that the study, which in the end only looked at 8 studies on homeopathy, was probably an exercise in data trawling for a predetermined outcome.
Watch the video of the debate here:
The Irish Conference on Homeopathy takes place this year on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of June this year at NUI Galway.
There's an initial website up now with descriptions of this year's speakers , which include Miranda Castro, Brian Kaplan and Misha Norland and looks set to be an interesting conference. A more extensive website will follow shortly.
November Newsletter from Alastair Yarrow and Diane Stauder
Is there a link between unpleasant early childhood experiences and SADS?
SADS, what are they? A biological disease or a psychological based recurrent problem?
There is the theory that levels of the "Happy hormone", Seratonin , are down due to a lack of sunlight. But who has ever given a blood sample to check for the appropriate dosage of the "biomedical" answer? Or even advised to avoid dark glasses?
SADS always seems to occur in the autumn with the falling levels of sunlight and the increasing hours of darkness. If it is a biological problem perhaps there is little that can be done naturally when we are told that pollution is cutting out the sunlight and with global warming there is actually more pollution held in the lower atmosphere to which the body reacts.
This article by the late Homeopathic Historian, Julian Winston, dissapeared from the site where I had linked to it earlier and appears to have become hard to find. I found a copy using the Wayback Machine and have reproduced it here. It is a little told but stunning account of Homeopathy's use in various epidemics over the past two hundred years
