Flu—not to be sneezed at
Flu is scary. We are talking about an illness that could be our modern-day equivalent of the Black Plague. The SARS epidemic and the recent Avian flu scare gave us just a foretaste of the havoc a cleverly adapted virus can wreak in these days of the itty-bitty global village.
The last big epidemic
The influenza outbreak commonly called “Spanish flu” (but known in Spain as the “Naples soldier”) killed more people than all those who died in combat… Continue

Big Pharma is like a rock and if you turn it over some ugly things slither out
"An international drug company made a hit list of doctors who had to be "neutralised" or discredited because they criticised the anti-arthritis drug the pharmaceutical giant produced. Staff at US company Merck &Co emailed each other about the list of doctors - mainly researchers and academics - who had been negative… Continue

The Google Book Project has begun digitizing everything they can get their hands on. If the book is out of copyright, they have the complete text. This includes many old homeopathic books and journals. The trick is filtering out the treasures. Here's two links and I encourage other members of this forum to search for more. The first link is to King's History of… Continue

I am pleased to read dear Kavita's blog, where she explained very nicely giving some good examples. I am adding herewith some information, which may be helpful to many of my homeopathic friends.
In most of the cases, we fail because of lacking in proper case taking. I remember my teachers telling us that that homeopathy is not merely a science but an art as well, and you have to learn the techniques of proper case taking, which is basically the first task in any homeopathic… Continue

Julian Winston did a question and answer at the NCH Summer School several years ago. He answered a question about his visit to Hahnemann's house. He later wrote up the visit as an article in Homeopathy Today, but I thought I would share the remarks he made that day.
Q: Tell us about your trip to Hahnemann's house.
A: I spent 10 days with Dr. Gypser. He arranged for train tickets for me to visit Hahnemann's house in Koethen. Andre Saine visited it as soon as the Berlin Wall… Continue

Dear Homeopaths around our planet
We can be the best in curing patients all around our beautiful planet. Let's gather our forces and energies in this way. I think we can make firm and logical link with different specialties in conventional Medicine. A very simple example is Arnica which is being used in surgeries in France by some cancer surgeons for healing post surgical hematoma (post mastectomy) in breast cancer patients or post surgical healing of patients…

For each client I explain in several different ways about homeopathy and the role of a homeopath. What comes to my mind at that moment I go with it….Finally I thought let me put that in to words so that it will be easy for me to provide a copy of this to each client instead of explaining each time and if they have any questions I will answer them accordingly. Below is what I cited as an example for my clients.
“I would like to share an interesting incident of one of my relative was given… Continue

I believe that all complementary therapists should now join together to promote Freedom of Choice for Integrated Healthcare direct to the public.
The NHS in the UK is now patient-led, so it is the public who can drive forward for a better healthcare system that will take the mind body connection into account when treating patients.
Please visit our website www.tlckendal.org and help us to make TLC into a national and international organisation.

Yesteday I was called anti-science for advocating homeopathy. It's a strange term and I'm not sure what it means. I understand anti-technology, which is the belief that technology causes more problems than it solves. I suppose anti-science means advocating some idea the scientific community does not accept. It's a strange inversion of science. What is supposed to be a method for discovering new ideas becomes a tool for criticizing old ones. As if there were some laundry list of things every… Continue

Please note, that I am totally dedicated to the art of Homeopathy, and in my opinion, there is nothing better to serve the suffering humanity.
In my 38 years of Homeopathic Practice, I have seen thousands of homeopathic cures, even in so called "incurable" cases. It all depends on the procedure adopted in the treatment of each individual case. We must look thoroughly and deeply in any illness with a proper case taking, understanding illness and then selecting a proper homeopathic… Continue

I spend a lot of time on the Internet, and much of it is spent arguing with people I disagree with. Here are a few tips if you find yourself in an argument.
Stick to what you know. Don't try to argue quantum mechanics, philosophy, or economics if you've never studied them in depth. It's much better to be honest and unassuming.
Keep it short. No one has the patience to read your thousand word argument. Make your point and quit.
Keep it simple. You may think that… Continue
