It's world Homeopathy Awareness Week form 28th April - 4th May - This year's topic is "Homeopathy to the Rescue" for stress, crisis and trauma - The Australian Homeoapthic Association have produced an 8 page insert which appears in the Wellbeing Magazine this month - Email me here for your free copy and include your postal address in the message.

Concerned parents are turning to homeopathy to help their children through post Easter back-to-school illnesses.

Parents are increasingly looking for alternatives to conventional drugs - in the last few years several over-the-counter medications have become off limits for children, and recently research has suggested a link between prolonged antibiotic use in children and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and between excessive use of paracetamol and asthma. (Ref SOH UK)

There is high quality scientific evidence that homeopathic medicine is effective over and above that of placebo, and research which specifically supports its use in upper respiratory tract infections, bronchitis, ear infections, sinusitis and flu. Homeopathic medicines, known as remedies, are non-toxic and have an excellent safety record.
(Ref SOH UK)

Homeopathic medicine works in a completely different way to conventional medicine, with each remedy having its own set of symptoms which need to be matched to the patient who is ill. Recurrent coughs and infections should always be seen by a professional healthcare practitioner.

RSHom in the UK and AROH AHA is your guarantee of a trained, registered, insured healthcare professional. All registered Homeopaths have undertaken comprehensive training and are committed to on-going CPD (Continual Professional Development).

Homeopathic remedies may also be used at home in acute short-lived conditions. Why not join one of our Homeopathic First Aid Workshops to find out more (see dates in box below).

The Society of Homeopaths UK suggests that remedies commonly used at this time of the year for both children and adults, include:



The number one "flu" remedy, with symptoms slow to come on, where there is much heaviness and drooping, fatigue, clammy skin, flushes of hot and cold, dizziness and congestion.


Indicated where the symptoms have come on suddenly and there is heat, throbbing and pain, irritability, and symptoms worse from jarring.


Has blocked painful sinuses, stocky mucus, feels better in the fresh aire and has been changeable, clingy mood.


The symptoms are slow to come on, there is much dryness and pains are worse from even the slightest movement. Firm pressure on the affected area is helpful. They are irritable and want to be left alone.


This is a hacking, tickling cough, often with sweating. The patient is worse at night and might ask for icy drinks or ice cream, which may be vomited up immediately. They may be hoarse, and want cuddles and massage.

Rhus tox

Slow onset with high temperature and great restlessness, constantly changing position, with muscles stiff and painful. Any draft or cold air will aggravate. There is a feeling of heat inside, but skin is cold to the touch.

Important Note
Always seek professional advice from your Healthcare Professional, no advice given above is to be used without professional support.

What is Homeopathy?
A system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body's natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.

Is Homeopathy evidence-based?
It is often said that there is 'no scientific evidence' that homeopathy works. This is not the case. There are high-quality randomised clinical trials demonstrating that homeopathy is clinically effective beyond placebo. You can find more information at, the European Central Council for Research, read patient experiences of Homeopathy and research at plus Dr Nancy Malik's article about the evidence for homeopathy at Happy reading.
