Helios London have recently made available a wonderful new resource. It is a Materia Medica of generic homeopathic substances and their use according to homeopathic tradition.

In Australia the TGA prevent us from providing any specific information about homeopathy on our websites, because they say we are 'advertising', and there is no evidence to show that homeopathy works! If we name any unlicensed homeopathic medicine on our websites, we might also find ourselves in trouble!

So this website provides you with quick reference to key first aid remedies as well as remedies for:

  • Pets Materia Medica

  • Winter Remedies - Colds

  • Winter Remedies - Sore Throat

  • Winter Remedies - Coughs

  • Hay fever

  Bumi Sehet Midwifery Centre - Indonesia
The Bumi Sehet Midwifery centre offers Homeopathic Medicine as part of the programme to support mothers and babies providing safe facility for pre and post-natal care, as well as birthing facilities.

High rates of infant mortality in Indonesia led Robin Lim (2011 CNN hero of the year) to create Yayasan Bumi Sehat: Birthing centres to provide natural midwifery, pre and ante-natal care, health and education services in Bali and Aceh.
Click here for Bum Sehet Midwifery Centre's website.
Diets lacking essential nutrients combined with an inability to afford birth-related medical services such as pre and ante-natal care meant that by 2003 Indonesia had the highest rates of infant mortality at birth in South East Asia.

Translated into English as Healthy Mother Earth Foundation, Yayasan Bumi Sehat has provided prenatal clinics, labour services, health education and environmental programs to Indonesian women in a bid to achieve its aim of providing safe and gentle natural childbirth to women in need.

  Love, Fear & Vaccines
Few can have escaped the Government's drive to enforce mandatory vaccination, yet at the same time more and more health professionals across the globe including GP's and specialists are coming forward and admitting some of the short-comings of vaccinations. For those of you interested a couple of links to films which review current policy and unwanted side effects which have been noted and recorded.
What if Andrew Wakefield Was Right?

A new film being produced by Jeff Hays and directed by Bobby Sheehan "Bought" asks and answers this question and uncovers the hidden facts about vaccinations. Click here to learn more and also here for more about the film . There is also a free link to the film for a limited period of time. Click here to watch the film.

Other recent news & information which may be of interest:

Click here to explore innate and acquired immunity and contributory factors to immune response and the increasing number of auto-immune diseases.

Recent news on Vaccine reactions in Mexico.

As registered Homeopaths we remain professionally "neutral" on vaccines. Personally however, many of you will know that the reason I came to Homeopathic Medicine was to support the health on my own child who was unwell post vaccination when conventional medicine had no answers. That was 20 years ago when just 3 vaccines were given in UK - today here in Australia over 24 vaccines are given routinely before a child commence school.

Homeopaths support the decision of parents whether to vaccinate or not to vaccinate. Either way, homeopathy can help to ensure your child's own immunity is strong and often assists in clearing any unwanted side-effects from vaccines. Please email me to ask for more information.

An alternative which many parents are electing for is Homeoprophylaxis, not just for children but also for travel for more information see Dr Isaac Golden's research. Dr Golden has created a short video course for parents on Homeoprophylaxis which is available from a number of homeopaths here in Brisbane and further a field across Australia. Click here for Dr Golden's research.

In the USA Cilla Whatcott and Kate Birch have written an excellent parent friendly book "The Solution - Homeoprophylaxis the Vaccine Alternative", Balboa Press 2012. Cilla will also be speaking at the Bali Project in June.
Cilla and Kate also wrote an article which appeared in Homeopathic links in 2013, "Homeoprophylaxis for the Prevention of Contagious Diseases" this outlines and reviews the history, efficacy and research of Homeoprophylaxis. Cilla and Kate's website also has more on Homeoprophylaxis.

  Recipe For The Month - Chocolate Beetroot Brownies - Delicious & Healthy!
Chocolate Beetroot Brownies

Courtesy of Girl on the River - Monmouth UK

Note: this is an amalgamation of various recipes. You can play around with it, to taste.


  • 150g plain flour

  • 250g cooked beetroot, drained

  •  250g dark chocolate (preferably min. 70% cocoa solids)

  • 250g light brown sugar (if you want to use ordinary caster sugar, knock yourself out. It's really fine)

  • 100g butter, plus extra for greasing the tin

  • 3 large eggs

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • Up to 1 tsp cayenne pepper (I used slightly less)


Preheat oven to 200 degrees (180 if it's a fan oven). Grease and line a baking tin. Mine was about 23cm x 26cm - a bit smaller would be fine. I wouldn't go any bigger.

Puree the beetroot in a food processor until it's smooth. This takes a a little while - be patient or you'll end up with tiny chunks of beetroot in your brownie. Even I wouldn't like that.

Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. You can do this in the microwave too, apparently, but I haven't tried it.

Add chocolate mixture to the beetroot and pulse a few times. Crack in the eggs, pulse again, and add the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and cayenne pepper. Whizz until thoroughly mixed.

Pour into the baking tin and put in the oven. Bake for about 30 minutes, but check from 20-25. You want it to be set on top, but if you like it nice and squidgy you don't want to overdo it. If you stick in a skewer you want it to come out clean-ish.

 Allow to cool completely in the tin.

When it's cold, cut into 16 pieces. Do not eat all at once!

Thank you - Patricia Carswell - These are very delicious!
