Branching Out

Dear Reader,

I'm trying something new that I hope you will love!
Sometimes I come across an incredible development in homeopathy and think of you, that you would love to know about this or that you have a friend who'd appreciate the information. So here I am, branching out, hoping to inspire you with ideas that can help us all on our healing paths. 
Thank you so much for reading! 
Lots of love,


Calendula officinalis 

Last year was our first summer in our new home and as the move was such an epic exercise in downsizing; starting a garden needed to be put off for another year.  
We are now happily settled, (and loads lighter!) so with great joy my daughter Avalon and I carried home our baby plants from the Mother's Day plant sale.  
I chose Calendula officinalis, one of my favourite healing herbs.  As safe as this sunny flower is, if you have an allergy to chrysanthemum, ragweed or daisy, you'll want to avoid material doses of the plant and take homeopathic pellets, as they are related members of the Compositae family. 
Pot marigold (the common name) is a specific for wound healing. It is perfect for slow-to-heal cuts with pus because of its antiseptic qualities AND it's ability to regenerate tissue.  
Homeopathically, it is used for:
  • lacerated injuries, surgical incisions
  • preventing pus and infection
  • nerve pain
  • tooth extraction
  • tearing from labour
  • ulcers
  • cancer of the uterus or breast
I strongly recommend picking up this remedy for your home kit in a 30C. Take it acutely for skin wounds and injuries to organs (like eyes!) especially when accompanied by weakness and/or extreme pain. It's well indicated when the pain is out of proportion to the injury. 
The Single Remedy
Just as a stone can cause water to ripple across an entire lake, so too can the simplest substance have profound, far-reaching effects on one's entire being. I invite you to 
read this wonderful case of a woman whose memory, arthritis, merton's neuroma, keratosis, brown spots AND haemorrhoids were all simultaneously helped by using Calendula 30C and 1M.  It's an excellent example of constitutional homeopathy in action!

Meet the Giggling Guru!
In this TEDMED video, Dr. Kataria, talks about laughing your way to health. His work has inspired 5000 clubs around the world! Laughing loudly for 10-15 minutes decreases cortisol, boosts endorphins and improves immunity in, literally, a delightful way!

Good news! I finally dusted off the website I started a while ago and am working on getting her done!  It's a work in progress and homemade, but I'm excited to soon provide a place for you to find everything you need about my services and more. Stay tuned!

MYTH: "There is no scientific evidence that homeopathy works"

When I hear this statement, it just makes me cringe. Yes, we don't have a clear scientific explanation for how it works (yet) but to say this is untrue. I want you to be informed, so here's the scoop: 

Homeopathy research (using double blind protocols) is a relatively new field, so yes, there's not a huge number of studies, but some evidence is very different from no evidence. By the end of 2014, 104 placebo-controlled trials published in peer reviewed journals were eligible for detailed review:
  • 41% were positive (43 trials) â€“ finding that homeopathy was effective
  • 5% were negative (5 trials) â€“ finding that homeopathy was ineffective
  • 54% were inconclusive (56 trials)
What's interesting is that the review of conventional medicine trials (though higher in number) revealed extremely similar percentages!  Read more here.
TRUTH: "There's increasing scientific evidence that homeopathy works but we need to do more quality studies"
