This month we celebrate WHAW - World Homeopathy Awareness Week from 10th - 16th April. This date also marks the 200th anniversary of the founder of Homeopathic Medicine, Samuel Hahnemann's birthday. Across the world, many Homeopathic events are taking place to educate & inform the public of our medicine & spread the word that "Homeopathy Works." In Brisbane we have an information day & picnic at Underwood Park, Priestdale, Logan with free seminars, information stands & qualified Homeopaths on site. For more info call 07 3856 0440 or see flyer here & "A Brief History of Homeopathy" from the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.

Additionally we have our annual magazine insert into the Wellbeing Magazine - If you would like a copy of our homeopathy insert please e-mail me with your postal address

On the subject of Homeopathy overseas, whilst in California earlier this year I came across the long established Homeopathic Pharmacy in Santa. First known as the Santa Monica Drug Store, the pharmacy was founded in 1944 by Bob's father, pharmacist Norman Litvak and wife Mary, whose parents immigrated from the Ukraine to Buffalo, New York. "As our homeopathic remedy shelves increased," says Norman's son Bob Litvak, who owns the pharmacy with brother Don, "we found the dispensing of prescription drugs decreased".

Norman was awarded an honorary degree by the acclaimed British Institute of Homeopathy in 1992. Read more of this wonderful family run pharmacy & some of the Hollywood stars who use Homeopathy, in Martin Sheen's article published in March this year in The Beverley Hills Courier. Read here.

Do let me know of any Homeopathic Pharmacies you may find on your travels & do submit your photos which we can share with our readers.

The challenges to our global health include the rise of "Superbugs" (see article 4) together with the increasing sensitivity for some individuals to Electromagnetic (see article 10 & TED talk on EMF from Jeremy Johnson) provide further opportunity for Homeopathic remedies to offer increasingly effective & beneficial support when few other alternatives are available. A final word from Dr Paul Mills & recent research to support the fact that grateful people are healthier individuals (article 8).

With gratitude to all who support, use & promote Homeopathy here in Australia & across the globe.
  Homeopathy App
FREE from Apple iTunes 10th April
This year 4Homeopathy (4H), the alliance which comprises all the major homeopathic organisations in the UK, is organising a week packed full of activities for Homeopathy Awareness Week including a new app. The homeopathy app - 4H has specially commissioned an app for mobiles and tablets, which will provide the public with an easy way to find a registered homeopath in their area, as well as accessing general information about homeopathy. The app will also include a simple remedy finder for mild, self-limiting conditions, and a brief description of commonly-used homeopathic medicines, plus a list of outlets which stock homeopathic medicines. Most important of all, this app is available for free!

Please help to spread the word about homeopathy by downloading the app yourself, which will be available from the Apple iTunes store and Google Play store on 10 April. Look for the app called 'Homeopathy', and encourage your family, friends and patients to do likewise. This app has the potential to become a valuable resource for all of us.
Arlene Phillips, CBE, choreographer
Arlene Phillips, Strictly Come Dancing star and former dancer, celebrated homeopathy on the red carpet earlier this year at the National Television Awards wearing a "living" dress decorated with real flowers that are all used for homeopathic remedies, including Clematis, Hydrangea and others. Arlene is lending her support to the 4H campaign launched by eleven homeopathic charities and associations. The campaign aims to raise awareness of homeopathy and the website.

The dress was the inspiration of award-winning florist (five consecutive RHS Gold Medals and four Best in Show awards from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show) Joseph Massie. Months of work have gone into designing and making the dress, with Massie and his team spending over 100 hours painstakingly sowing each petal onto the fabric.

On Homeopathy, Arlene commented, "I've regularly found Arnica cream to be so helpful with healing bruises and dancing related injuries!" She continued, "Once, when I was Germany, I had to take my daughter to a Doctor who prescribed a homeopathic remedy as opposed to penicillin and it helped enormously".
See and hear Arlene speak on her dress in this video here.

  Magic Pills, in search of evidence: a documentary about homeopathy
Magic Pills is a ground-breaking long-form documentary that examines the claims and impact of homeopathy from around the world, told from the unique perspective of Ananda More, a practicing Toronto homeopath at a professional crossroads.

Over half a billion people use homeopathy to treat everything from the common cold, to cancer and AIDS. Sceptics assert that homeopaths are at best new age lunatics and at worst deceitful charlatans. They explain that homeopathy is scientifically implausible and there is no scientific evidence to support its efficacy.

Homeopaths claim that because their system of medicine poses a significant threat to the pharmaceutical and medical industry, their science is systematically suppressed and wrongfully discredited. If homeopathy really does work, it could not only save billions of dollars in healthcare and improve patient outcomes, but it would also require a major paradigm shift and cause science to revisit some of its most basic tenets.

Help us build momentum and show that there is a demand for this film. Share the video, let us know what you think, contribute, join the mailing list and follow the campaign!

  The end of modern medicine as we know it? Superbugs
It has been called the end of modern medicine as we know it. Superbugs are the start of a "post-antibiotic era - in which common infections and minor injuries can kill - far from being an apocalyptic fantasy, is instead a very real possibility for the 21st century." According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Antibiotic resistance is "one of the world's most pressing public health problems."
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA
Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, or M.R.S.A. is one of the newest plagues on our way of life. MRSA is just one member of a group of micro-organisms demonstrating increased resistance to conventional antibiotic treatment strategies. These organisms have only recently emerged from the fabric of our disturbed environment since the medicine, hygiene and agricultural industries have adopted the routine use of antibiotics.

Community aquired strains of MRSA are interesting and unique because they combine antibiotic resistance with a powerful increase in virulence and invasiveness. Infectious outbreaks involving these organisms don't originate in hospitals or nursing homes, but have sprung up in the community at an unprecedented rate.
Australia is one of the highest users of antibiotics in the world with around 22 million prescriptions written every year. General practitioners prescribe the greatest proportion of antibiotics in Australia, mostly for acute respiratory tract infections. Antibiotics remain the most common class of medicine prescribed in general practice. Homeopathic Medicine can offer support in a wide range of common infections.

Link to MRSA case here.

Between 2001 and 2010, the incidence of MRSA transmission in Australia doubled from 10 to 20% of all reported S. aureus infections. In Tasmania, a recent increase in Clostridium difficile - an infection closely correlated with antibiotic use - was observed. This was most likely linked to transmission and infection pathways in the community, not within hospitals, and was driven substantially by antibiotic use in the community.

  A Homeopathic Clinic in Sydney
Tessa Hoffman reporter for Australian Doctor
It's a homeopathic clinic staffed by GPs that opens five days a month. It is run, owned and managed by the NSW Government originally situated in Glebe now located in Balmain. The consults are free and the homeopathic remedies prescribed to deal with a range of conditions the clinic's doctors treat, including sleep disorders, anxiety, joint and muscle pain, and food allergies - cost patients $5 each.

So who was the benefactor of this facility? It was a William Moore, a homeopath who died in 1911. He owned vast tracts of land in Sydney's North Shore, which a century later has become some of the most valuable real estate in Australia. Moore's will contains instructions for one-third of the income from his estate to go to the Sydney Homeopathic Hospital Clinic. The hospital had been set up to afford "gratuitous medical and surgical aid under the homeopathic system to sick persons in destitute circumstances".

The will also contains instructions to safeguard Moore's secret recipes for the herbal ointments upon which he is said to have made his fortune, with which he bought the tracts of land that include part of what is now Lane Cove National Park.

  A brief history of Homeopathy
Irvine Loudon - Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine. Celebrating 200 years since Hahnemann's birth
While it can scarcely compare in antiquity with Chinese or Indian medicine, homeopathy is the longest established CAM to have arisen in Europe.7 It was founded by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), who grew up in Meissen in Germany, received his medical degree in Erlangen in 1779, and died a millionaire in Paris in 1843. During his first fifteen years as a physician Hahnemann struggled desperately to make a living. One day, however, he made a discovery. He started to take regular doses of cinchona or 'the bark' (i.e. quinine). This, he said, produced all the symptoms of intermittent fever (malaria) but to a mild degree and without the characteristic rigors of that disease. This led Hahnemann to an idea which was published in 1796 as Essay on a New Principle for Ascertaining the Curative Power of Drugs, which was followed in 1810 by his famous work The Organon of the Healing Art.1

Hahnemann believed that if a patient had an illness, it could be cured by giving a medicine which, if given to a healthy person, would produce similar symptoms of that same illness but to a slighter degree. Thus, if a patient was suffering from severe nausea, he was given a medicine which in a healthy person would provoke mild nausea. By a process he called 'proving', Hahnemann claimed to be able to compile a selection of appropriate remedies. This led to his famous aphorism, 'like cures like', which is often called the 'principle of similars'; and he cited Jenner's use of cowpox vaccination to prevent smallpox as an example.

The differences between orthodox medicine and homeopathy could hardly be more vivid. From its beginning homeopathy always began with a long consultation, lasting at least an hour, in which all aspects of the patient's illness and life were discussed-homeopaths like to stress that they practise 'holistic medicine' and the appropriate treatment chosen. In contrast, during the first half of the nineteenth century, when homeopathy was becoming established, orthodox medicine was immersed in the belief that advances in understanding disease could only come from a detailed correlation of symptoms and signs of the sick patient on the ward, and the findings at autopsy: clinico-pathological correlation. As Bichat famously put it put it at the very end of the eighteenth century: 'For twenty years from morning to night you have taken notes at patients' bedsides... which, refusing to yield up their meaning, offer you a succession of incoherent phenomena. Open up a few corpses: you will dissipate at once the darkness that observation alone could not dispel.'

  Gratitude is good for the Heart & Soul
by Valerie Burke, MSN
A new study discovered the more grateful you are, the lower your risk of heart attack. Is there a recipe for gratitude? Learn what highly grateful people do differently from the rest.

"Gratitude opens the door to the power, the wisdom, and the creativity of the Universe" Deepak Chopra

It is well known that mental and physical health are closely intertwined, but new data suggests your attitude may have a major influence on your heart attack risk. The latest science reveals that a "grateful heart" is a healthy heart.

Dr. Paul Mills of the University of California San Diego School of Medicine has been researching the connection between mental health and heart health for decades. A positive attitude is associated with lower heart disease risk because it reduces stress, anxiety and depression, all of which contribute to cardiovascular disease.

But what about gratitude and your heart? To answer this question, Mills designed a study. He recruited 186 men and women with heart disease and came up with a gratitude questionnaire.

What he learned was the more grateful people are, the healthier they are.

  A comparative consecutive case:
Series of 20 children with a diagnosis of ADHD receiving homeopathic treatment, compared with 10 children receiving usual care
In this small consecutive sample the intervention was associated with improvements in criminality, anger and children with a concomitant diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD.

Treatment by a homeopath was associated with sustained, increasing improvements and the intervention was acceptable to participants. More methodically rigorous research is warranted.
