Musculoskeletal Wellbeing
(Research Evidence)

This Year's Homeopathic Awareness Week (Apr 10 - 16 2011) promoted the theme of Musculoskeletal Wellbeing. There are millions of people throughout the world enduring musculoskeletal and rheumatic complaints. Many sufferers find that consulting a Homeopathic Physician helps in relieving their pain, and may also prevent further occurrences of their problem.

Research Evidence
It is interesting to note that 23 research studies have been carried out to determine the effect of homeopathy for patients suffering from rheumatic and musculoskeletal complaints, namely rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. These trials, which have included over 2,300 patients in total, have shown positive results for homeopathy, over and above conventional treatment and placebos.

  • The studies mostly used patients who suffered from long-term complaints and were treated with   homeopathic remedies for an average of four to five months.
  • There was, within these studies, a 77% improvement in 400 rheumatic patients over the first month of treatment and reduced severity of pain in 87% after six months. I
  • n addition, after just three months of treatment, 85% of osteoarthritis sufferers found that they had reduced pain, stiffness and swelling of joints.
  • The multiple investigations also concluded that the safety of homeopathic treatment was greater than conventional treatment, where side-effects to the drugs prescribed are typical.
  • It has been advised, with all these positive conclusions, that homeopathy should be considered a viable therapeutic option for patients suffering from rheumatic and musculoskeletal complaints.

Yeo Valley Organic goes Homeopathic

The routine use of antibiotics as a preventative measure to treat the ailments of cows is not permitted at Yeo Valley Organic. The Herd Manager has invested time and money in studying a course on Homeopathic treatments, which he believes has been enormously beneficial to the company.

On conventionally run farms, the administration of antibiotics always results in withdrawal periods for milk and meat during treatment, but homeopathy has no such effect.


A major consideration is that cows do not build up immunity to homeopathic remedies - quite the reverse - Homeopathy appears to encourage the cows' immune systems to fight "bugs" for themselves, so the cows stay healthy naturally.


Homeopathic treatment is used in a number of different ways; including to ward off flies, and to help them during a difficult calving. Yeo Valley Organic are keen to increase the Homeopathic care they offer to their animals in the future, and aim to continue to treat their herd Homeopathically, whenever appropriate.



Barbecue First Aid

With the advent of summer comes the barbecue season when food preparation on an outdoor fire is all the fashion. Friends and family are invited over to relax and enjoy. Its at such time as this when least expected that the little emergency happens. Someone gets too relaxed and a burn, cut or bruise results. Homeopathy can be very effective and is just what you need in such situations.

What the Doctors Don't Tell You about
(Learning difficulties and diet)

Scroll right for learning difficulty picture  >>>>>>

Professor Barry Carpenter says there has been a 29-per-cent increase in pupils with learning difficulties between 2004 and 2009 and predicts every classroom will soon have two pupils with ADHD. He blames the rise on the increasing numbers of children who will survive a premature birth. These children will struggle with maths and reading and have behavioural problems because their brains are continuing to develop after their birth. Given the importance of formative brain development it is no surprise that diet (not medication) should figure prominently.
Here are some pointers to consider.

  • Keep a food diary to see when behaviour worsens.
  • Experiment withdrawing certain foods to see the effect.
  • Test for nutritional adequacy of dietary fibre,
    EFAs, trace elements and amino acids.
  • Consider a gluten and dairy free diet.
  • Remove refined sugar from the diet.
    (Sugar can raise adrenaline levels in children which can
    worsen hyperactivity irritable moods and poor concentration.)
  • Consider an organic wholefood diet 
    free of pesticides, phenol and amines.
  • Why not consult a qualified nutritionist to help you on the right way.
