Homeopathic History Part 2 - Dr. James Compton Burnett

Ah! My good fellow, I thought you would say that you also use Aconite for fever, and that it is not necessarily Homeopathy. But do you not know of a certain French gentleman who spoke prose all his life without realising it?


 I have come across many precious stories from our homeopathic history which will be including them in this blog from time to time. There are many great masters of this art and science who have had the courage and tenacity of their beliefs to carry the torch for this powerful system of medicine down through the centuries.

Have You Had Your Flu Shot? There is an Alternative.

I was visiting a close friend in the hospital yesterday who is recovering from a mild stroke. She is an 89 year old woman who has always embraced complementary/alternative remedies and methods. Her constitution is very strong and vital although the stroke has left her feeling exhausted. Last night the nurse popped in to see if my friend had had a flu shot. My friend wasn’t in a position to protest so they gave her one.

Homeopathy For The Traveller

I used to travel a lot for work.  I enjoyed the opportunity to experience different cities and countries, but the years of business travel to take a toll.  When I started to feel periodic claustrophobia in a plane, I knew I needed to find help.  I decided to explore natural solutions.  Using a combination of homeopathy, flower essences and acupuncture points I became a happy traveler once more!
