Will the FTC End Homeopathy? Mercola.com

Why am I not surprised. The FDA can’t finish off homeopathy so they passed the ball the the FTC. Despite its effectiveness clinically, despite its impeccable safety record, despite that homeopathy is used extensively throughout the rest of the world, according to the bureaucrats in Washington (with their revolving door with pharma) we must save the unsuspecting  public from dangerous homeopathic medicines. I need some nux vomica before I throw up, or before its outlawed, whichever comes first. How many people do you know who had to visit an emergency room after using a homeopathic medicine?

What Science is Telling Us About Earth’s Electromagnetic Fields & the Healing Power of Coherence

Electromagnetic fields are real, and can be measured and influenced by a variety of treatment modalities including acupuncture, pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF), and homeopathic remedies which possess the energy of the mother remedy. Chiropractic treatment can also release impinged spinal nerves which will allow for the free flow of energy. In the following article, you will learn about the power of electromagnetic energy and the healing power of coherence: 

“Science has recently shed light on the fact that what we used to perceive as ‘human’ aura is actually real. All of our bodies emit an electromagnetic field, and this fact plays a very important role far beyond what is commonly known when it comes to understanding our biology, and the interconnectedness we share with all life."

Swiss to Recognise Homeopathy as Legitimate Medicine

According to the article on swissinfo.ch

“Homeopathy, holistic medicine, herbal medicine, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine will acquire the same status as conventional medicine by May 2017 when it comes to health insurance.”

We cannot ignore the reality that society as a whole is the sickest it has ever been in history, and ultimately the integration of different forms of medicine is really the answer.

Almost Half of Americans Use Alternative Medicine

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health say that nearly 40 percent of adults have used some type therapy that isn’t taught in medical schools. But more than 40 U.S. universities, including Stanford, UCLA, Duke and The George Washington University have integrative medicine centers.

With more Americans turning to alternatives, the U.S. government founded The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine as part of the National Institutes of Health.

“Our job here at the National Institutes of Health is to bring really good science to these really interesting practices,” says Dr. Josephine Briggs, the center’s director.

Practices that are considered outside mainstream medicine, like the use of dietary supplements, meditation and yoga, as well as chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, reiki – or therapeutic touch – and massage. A survey by the NIH in 2007 indicated four in 10 Americans use one of these practices, most often to treat pain.

If nearly half the population uses so called alternative medicine, when will it be referred to as “conventional? ”

Homeopathy for Holistic Wellness

Millions of people suffer from chronic or acute health concerns. While some are silent sufferers, others may book an appointment with their general practitioner, but more and more people are seeking relief by following some form of complementary and alternative medicine, such as homeopathy.

“Homeopathy is based on the understanding that body, mind and spirit work together in harmony when the vital force is in a state of homeostasis,” explained Dr. Vatsala Sperling, founder of Rochester Homeopathy. “When the vital force is out of tune, a whole range of physical, mental and emotional symptoms appear; collectively, these are called diseases. Homeopathy works to restore homeostasis of the vital force. The result is a deeply felt, truly holistic sense of wellness at the level of mind, body and spirit.”

Sperling grew up in India using homeopathy. She earned a doctorate degree in clinical microbiology and was awarded a Gold Medal by the president of India for her scholastic accomplishments. She was invited to join the staff of The Childs Trust Hospital in Chennai, India, as the chief of Clinical Microbiology Services, a position she held until her marriage and subsequent move to the United States in 1996.

With deep personal interest in holistic health, Sperling decided to circle back to her roots in homeopathy. She graduated from The School of Homeopathy in Devon, U.K., and founded Rochester Homeopathy last year. People from different age groups and diverse backgrounds come to her seeking help.

“In classical homeopathy, no detail is unimportant,” said Sperling, “and so, during consultation, clients are asked about every aspect of their life: health, habits, profession, hobbies, dreams and sleep, food preferences, body functions, familial and social relationships and such. These details figure into the selection of a remedy that would help restore homeostasis to the vital force. The result is a deeply felt sense of wellness.”

According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 38 percent of adults and 12 percent of children suffering from health concerns spend $33.9 billion annually and use some form of CAM. Homeopathy, according to the National Institute of Health, attracts people with a wide range of health concerns from wellness and prevention, to the treatment of diseases such as allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, digestive disorders, ear infections, headaches and skin rashes.

Homeopathy was introduced in late 1700s by Samuel Hahnemann, a German medical doctor. Although acute and chronic health issues can be addressed, the practice does not restrict itself to treating specific body parts or diseases labels. Instead, the whole self is the focus, with creating a healthy being—inside and out—as the emphasis.

Only after obtaining a thorough understanding of individuals’ symptoms, Sperling can recommend a remedy. “Homeopathic healing is brought about by administering a small dose of a remedy that matches the symptoms,” she said. “This remedy gently encourages the vital force to regain its normal, healthy state so that it can support good health. Following a protocol laid out by Dr. Hahnemann, remedies are made from natural substances, dissolved in water or alcohol, and taken by mouth. This system of healing is noninvasive and does not rely on expensive tests and diagnostics.

“Homeopathy is about finding the image of us in nature and matching it with a remedy,” Sperling concluded. “So anyone can benefit from this natural and complementary system of healing.”

Besides homeopathy, Sperling is a prolific writer who has published numerous research papers in clinical microbiology, several articles on homeopathy, seven children’s books based on mythology from India and co-authored the forthcoming book, “For Seven Lifetimes: An East–West Journey to a Spiritually Fulfilling and Sustainable Marriage”, with her husband, Ehud Sperling. The book, due in bookstores in February 2011, tells the story of their yearlong courtship across continents and cultures, and the success of their 15-yearlong marriage based on shared values and spiritual growth.

Fish oil reduces risk of breast cancer by a third

In a new study, just published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, was conducted by a research team at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. They investigated 35,016 postmenopausal women between the ages of 50 and 76 with no history of breast cancer who were participating in the Vitamins and Lifestyle cohort study (dubbed VITAL, short). The woman was asked to complete a 24 page questionnaire about their use of supplements other than vitamins and/or minerals.

After six years of follow-up, 880 of these women had been diagnosed with breast cancer. However, those women who reported regularly taking fish oil supplements, which contain high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, were found to have a 32 percent reduced risk of invasive ductal breast cancer — the most common type of breast cancer. The use of other specialty supplements, such as the herbs black cohosh and dong quai which are often taken by women to relieve symptoms of menopause, was not associated with raising or lowering breast cancer risk.

Cure Your Digestive Woes with Probiotics and Fiber by Sylvia Anderson – Digestive – InsidersHealth.com

Cure Your Digestive Woes with Probiotics and Fiber by Sylvia Anderson – Digestive – InsidersHealth.com.

Suffering from digestive problems can be one of the most confusing and exhausting physical ailments you may ever experience.  Cramping, constipation and untimely trips to the bathroom can literally take away your ability to live a fully satisfied life. Luckily, scientists are continuing to find ways to use natural ingredients such as probiotics and fiber to address those problems.

Why are Digestive Problems Such a Problem?
Digestive problems might not be so bad if you could undergo a few tests to determine the exact problem, and then figure out the best way to address it.  However, it is often very difficult to tell what specifically is causing your digestive woes.  Could it be the Chinese take-out you had two nights ago, or that sandwich you ate at midnight? Could it be that you are just under a great deal of stress?  Do you have a viral infection that is turning your stomach upside down?

Your doctor can run some helpful tests, but the truth is that no one truly knows everything about what causes digestive problems and even a disorder like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Unfortunately, doctors often prescribe prescription or over-the-counter medications as a “blanket” approach to treatment, which may or may not address your problem. Unfortunately such medications run the risk of side effects, putting you in more misery than where you started.

To understand the digestive system, you need to know that many things can influence how well your digestive system functions. Your digestive system is made up of many chemical reactions that essentially break down your food and provide you with nourishment.  There are “good” bacteria in your stomach that help you break down this food, as well as chemicals produced by your liver that help break down fat.  If these processes are hindered then it can throw your system off track and cause you any number of problems.

Probiotics
Probiotics have been a popular option lately for addressing digestive woes. Probiotics are essentially more of the good bacteria that already reside in your digestive tract. Adding probiotics to your diet—via a food source such as yogurt, or dietary supplements—will help your digestive tract stay balanced.

Fiber
Fiber helps in a different way. Fiber is basically the indigestible strands of “threads” that are found in fruits, vegetables and whole grains.  As the food you eat travels through your digestive system, it essentially turns into liquid form. By the time that it reaches the end of its journey, the fiber in your system will help the food reform into a solid but soft stool that can be passed easily. A lack of fiber can cause both constipation and diarrhea. By getting an adequate amount of fiber in your diet each day (not too little, not too much), you can help regulate the process and hopefully avoid any added stress on your digestive system.

Don’t hesitate to ask your doctor or other healthcare provider which one of these would be the best for you (or maybe both!). Start out with a cup of yogurt per day (with added probiotics) and see how it works for you.  Likewise, fiber can be added simply by eating more fruits and vegetables, and even by consuming things like oatmeal or whole-grain toast.

Adding more fiber and probiotics are both very cost effective and simple ways to help soothe your digestive woes.  Adding one of both of these to your diet in the proper amounts—along with plenty of water—should help to get your digestive system back in balance.
