A big Tick for Homoeopathy Swiss Government Report on Homoeopathy
In 2011 the Swiss Government released a report on “Effectiveness, Cost-Effectiveness and Appropriateness of Homoeopathy”. Arguably it represents the most comprehensive evaluation of homoeopathic medicine every commissioned by a government. It has now been published in German and English.(Bornholft and Matthiesen, 2011)
The Swiss Governments’s enquiry into homoeopathy and complementary (CAM) treatments resulted from the high demand and widespread use of alternatives to modern medicine, not only from consumers by also from physicians. It was prompted by a strong stir of public opinion against the Swiss Government’s earlier plans to suspend complementary medicine services from the national health insurance program.
Many high-quality investigations proved homoeopathic high potencies induced regulative and specific changes in cells of living organisms. 29 studies in the area of “upper respiratory tract infections and allergic reactions showed a positive overall result in favour of homoeopathy. 6 out of 7 controlled studies were at least equivalent to conventional medicine interventions. 8 out of 16 placebo controlled studies were significant in favour of homoeopathy.Applied properly classical homoeopathy has few side-effects and the use of high-potencies is free of toxic effects. (high potencies are not available for retail purchase)
The over all conclusion was that; effectiveness of homoeopathy can be supported by clinical evidence and professional and adequate application can be regarded as safe. (taken from ASBRM Biological Medicine Vol 24)
There are copious medical research papers published in international medical journals on the effectiveness of homoeopathy. It is indeed a mystery why the TGA and most Australian doctors dismiss homoeopathy as expensive water with no therapeutic effect.
What Causes Sensitivities and Allergic “Type” Reactions?
Some of us are born with life threatening allergic reactions and it is not possible to reverse this situation. However, it is possible to detoxify and make your immune system as low-reactive as possible.
Alternatively some individuals are born with hyper-vigilant immune systems that often react to foods, chemicals and airborne substances which others do not. Then, there are those whose immune system becomes more hyper-reactive as they become older. Sensitivities can increase in number and severity with age. Unfortunately this is not an uncommon story.
The other major factor that elevates our sensitivities is of cause emotional distress and physical stress.In the early stages of sensitivities you may not even be aware that your body is reacting. It may only be a slight snuffle, heat or itchiness that you put down to co-incidence. It is not until you have a full-blown reaction do you pay attention.
Signs and symptoms of sensitivities can be varied: Bloating, itchy eyes, throat and skin, tiredness, fever, hyperactivity, asthma, headaches, constipation, diarrhoea, insomnia, runny nose, sneezing, sinusitis, snoring, dermatitis, hives…………to name a few.
Now you all probably know what I can offer in the area of emotional stress but you may not be aware of what I can offer with regards to Homoeopathic treatments for sensitivities.
Apart from detoxification mentally and emotionally homoeopathy is really powerful and yet gentle when it comes to detoxification. I recommend that everyone performs an annual detoxification. Springtime is usually best if you complete the process annually. However, you can do a detoxification process at any time as the need arises.
Doing a detox does not just mean taking over the counter detox herbal preparation that usually cause you to feel unwell. Their effectiveness is usually limited in action.
Homoeopathy is also really effective for de-sensitizing most sensitivity reactions. I also offer a service whereby I send a small sample of your hair to a Naturopath in Queensland who has developed a 400 food item sensitivity test.
This test is extremely accurate and the elimination of the food on the list brings about an overall improvement in the health of every individual who follows the instructions. For more information on the non-invasive Hair test visit click here
