Welcome to our August eNews and whilst this Winter has seen the emergence of several severe cold and flu virus' and gastro bugs Homeopathic Medicine continues to provide gentle and effective support during these seasonal challenges. Links to useful remedies for Winter ailments in below topics.

The Commonwealth Games may have recently caught your attention with Australia winning a 34 Gold medals and 54 medals overall as well as a further victory for Sally Pearson despite the Australian's athletics coach's PR stunt! Many athletes now use Homeopathic medicine as their preferred form of health care and to optimise performance and speed injury recovery naturally see remedies for athletes here.

During much of the past quarter National press here in Australia has continued to debate the efficacy of Homeopathic medicine especially in light of Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) recent findings. Many of you may have read about or heard debate on National radio and TV where Anna Lamaro from our Australian Homeopathic Association defended our position with facts, research evidence and clarity - Facts and research evidence which has largely been ignored by NHMRC.

The NHMRC's initial conclusions are disappointing - They have ignored the substantial body of "evidence" from Europe, as well as the UK House of Commons support of Homeopathy - when Homeopathy was Challenged in the UK House of Commons in 2010, the overriding conclusion was that Homeopathy should remain on the NHS (National Health Service) in the UK, that further research should continue and that above all people should have freedom of choice in selecting healthcare and not be dictated to by Government!

Additionally three other European Governments which include France, Germany and Switzerland, all endorse Homeopathy and identify both the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of Homeopathic Medicine. Homeopathy presents for many nations extremely cost-effective health-care provision.

In Europe over 35 million people use Homeopathic Medicine, here in Australia it is estimated 1 million individuals use Homeopathy - What's good enough for 38 million Europeans and has been passed the scrutiny of four European Governments, surely is sufficient for Australia?

  Gum disease improves with homeopathy
A recent study awaiting publication looked at two groups of people with gingivitis and peridontal disease. Both groups were treated with the dental procedures of scaling and root planing but the group which was treated with homeopathy in addition, did much better - and not only with gum health but in cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose and uric acid measures as well. In other words, overall health improved in the homeopathically treated group - not just their gum disease.
Another interesting step would be to compare a homeopathy only group (rather than in addition) with the dental treatment group to see if the same improvements occur. I suspect they would as that is what I and other homeopaths regularly see in our clinics - gum health improves when people come for treatment of other seemingly unrelated symptoms.

  Allergic Diseases and Homeopathy
Experts have warned that Australia has one of the highest allergic disease rates in the world. Have you considered whether you or a family member is an allergy sufferer or at high-allergy risk?

With up to 40% of children having allergic sensitisation and many going on to develop allergic diseases, allergy figures have more than doubled in Australia over the past two decades.

Professor Mimi Tang, paediatric immunologist and allergist at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne spoke to RESCU about these shocking figures:

"Rates of allergic disease have increased in all countries with a westernised lifestyle," Professor Tang said. "So it seems that the western lifestyle is an important factor driving high rates."

Though western lifestyle has been linked to high allergic conditions, the actual pinpointing factors as to why are unclear.

"The factors in the western lifestyle that are responsible are not entirely understood," Professor Tang said.

"Possibilities include reduced exposure to a broad range of microbes in early life, this is a change that has occurred over the last 100 years."

"Also reduced UV exposure, reduced Vitamin D, reduced intake of omega 3 fatty acids in fish and reduced intake of vegetables that contain prebiotic type fibres."

There are a few common allergies to watch out for.

"The most common in Australia would be food allergies to egg, milk and peanuts," Professor Tang said.

"Overall though specific allergies to inhaled allergens such as pollen and house dust mites are the most common."

If you are unsure whether your child suffers from allergies or just a sniffly nose, Professor Tan said there are some tell-tale signs to look out for.

"Acute allergic reactions can be present with hives, swelling and difficulty breathing."

"Rarely, the circulation can also be involved, causing collapse or a pale floppy infant."

Unfortunately prevention is limited, however, Professor Tang recommends being mindful during the early stages of a child's life.

"Breast feed for at least six months, introduce complementary foods from four to six months, avoid cigarette smoke exposure in pregnancy and early life. For high risk babies - those with a family history of allergic disease in a parent or sibling - if the mother can't breast feed then a hydrolysed (low allergy formula) may be recommended in the first four to six months of life."

Professor Tang shared with RESCU her five top allergy tips:

  1. Note that common symptoms are hives, swelling and vomiting.

  2. See a doctor if you suspect food allergy in yourself or your child.

  3. Once you are diagnosed with a food allergy you must take care to avoid the food allergen.

  4. Be careful when eating outside of the home.

  5. Make sure any asthma is well controlled.

Homeopathy may support & reduce many allergic reactions, please contact us for more information.

  Rabindranath Tagore (1861 - 1941)
By Sue young on June 20, 2014

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was a Bengali polymath who reshaped Bengali literature and music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author of Gitanjali and its "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse", he became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.

In 1936, he wrote: "I have long been an ardent believer in the science of homeopathy, and I feel happy that it has got now a greater hold in India than even in the land of its origin. It is not merely a collection of a few medicines, but a real science with a rational philosophy as its base."
