The Homeopathic Cure

Posted on 24 June, 2015 at 18:55 Comments comments (2544)
The Homeopathic Cure

Since Homeopathy is now accepted as one of the Regulated Health Professions in Ontario, many are increasingly becoming aware of the greatness of the cure it offers. Everyday, many are becoming aware of the differences between conventional medical treatment and that of homeopathic treatment:

  • aware that unlike conventional medicine where drugs are given to work against the  body and its symptoms, homeopathic remedies work with the body to help stimulate the  body to heal itself.

  • aware that Homeopathic Medicine uses the "Law of similars" (like cures like). Minute doses of plant, animal and mineral substances are used for the treatment and prevention of various symptoms, especially those that have a mental emotional basis. 

  • treatment in homeopathy is individualized (tailored to each person). Homeopaths select remedies according to a total picture of the patient, including not only symptoms but lifestyle, emotional and mental states, and other factors.

  • homeopathy is a very gentle and very effective way of treatment.

Homeopathy was developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1796 in Germany for the following reasons:
  • Medical treatments often resulted to liver congestion and other negative chain reactions to health.
  • Compound medical prescriptions make patients more sick and hard to recover.
  • Palliative medications given to patients only suppressed and masked the uncomfortable symptoms that were interpreted as signs of improvements.
Homeopathic medicines used are from plants, animals and minerals. They are tested on humans and not animals for the simple reason that humans can express the experience of the remedy tested. Homeopathic remedies are tried and tested using healthy volunteers. These healthy volunteers expressed the symptoms produced which are what the substance are able to treat using the Law of Similars. These “Pathogenic Trials” are recorded in computerized forms for over 200 years. All through these years of using them, none of these homeopathic remedies has caused death. They have been used for protection and cure of different diseases. 

In homeopathy, disease is defined as a disturbance of the whole being and the cure is the restoration of health. We know that homeopathic medicine cures the symptoms that it produces in a healthy person. When a person is affected by two very similar dynamic affections (diseases), the stronger one extinguishes the weaker. We observe  this among very sick people that  won’t even catch a cold. It is always the stronger disease manifesting. This is how the homeopathic medicine initiates the cure: by forming an artificial disease which when somewhat stronger than the natural existing disease, replaces the natural disease. The homeopathic remedy produces similar symptoms of the existing disease but stronger thereby initiating the cure. According to Natural Law, a cure can happen when:
  • A similar stronger disease eradicates a weaker, similar natural disease.
  • In case two dissimilar diseases are in the same person, the new, stronger disease can suppress the old disease but will never remove it.
Heavy drugging with conventional medicines combined with already existing disease leads to an “artificial drug disease” and makes it into a chronic problem and so the patient becomes more sick.

More patients come to Homeopaths because they don’t want to take their medications. We never tell our patients not to take their medications but we explain to them how their drugs work, their side-effects and explain the importance of getting the homeopathic remedy that is most fitting to them. These will empower them to make their own decision. 

Homeopathy offers a great cure because of the following reasons:
  • it follows the Law of Nature
  • it is proven more effective, not toxic, more humane, more people-centered kind of health care
  • it is inexpensive
  • its principles are clear
  • its efficacy and safety is proven for more than 200 years.

Truly, the answers to most of our current health problems lies greatly in the knowledge of the past.

Homeopathic Medicine Works

Posted on 26 March, 2014 at 9:11 Comments comments (236)
Homeopathy has been around more than 200 years. It was introduced by a German medical doctor, Samuel Hahnemann around 1792. Through the years, many people think it is a popular and respected medical practice. Homeopathy first developed popularity in Europe and the United States. The British Monarchy and several famous celebrities are using homeopathic treatments. In the 19th century Homeopathy became popular after it successfully treated people suffering from various infectious disease - cholera, typhoid, yellow fever, pneumonia, scarlet fever and others. 
Homeopathic remedies are safe to use with babies, children, pregnant women and pets. However, for best results, you need a homeopath to prescribe the homeopathic remedy that’s best for you. 
Homeopathic remedies don’t interfere with the conventional drugs being taken by patients. The pharmaceutical drugs work along the tissue level while homeopathic remedies work along the energy level. It stimulates the body to heal itself.
Homeopathy is one of the Universal truths. The efficacy of the homeopathic remedies created years ago are found to be effective today as it was before. There are no reported side effects of homeopathic remedies and no homeopathic remedy has ever been banned for use because of untoward reactions such as death which we see happening with some pharmaceutical drugs these days.

Deal Better With Toxins

Posted on 21 March, 2014 at 23:37 Comments comments (342)




DEAL BETTER WITH TOXINS

We live in an extra ordinary time where we need to work hard to maintain our health and feel better. This is because we currently face major environmental and human health problems such as radioactive fall-out from nuclear meltdowns, toxic ocean water from oil spills, chemtrails from planes spraying us with toxic heavy metals including arsenic, aluminum, barium, strontium, zinc, iron, and also mycoplasma, contaminated soils from agricultural chemicals and GMO products in the market. We need to be proactive to know what is happening around us so we can protect ourselves and know what is happening inside our body so we can better understand how to cope with it. 
Exposure to toxic chemicals including drugs is a large source of toxic overload in the body. How does our body handle toxins? We have our organs of detoxifications:the liver, digestive tract, kidneys, lungs and skin with lymphatic system and the pancreas having great influence on them. Our liver plays a major role in detoxification: it filters large toxins from the blood, secrete the bile rich in cholesterol and fat-soluble toxins, and dismantles discarded and unwanted chemicals and toxins. 
DDT pesticides, hormones like estrogen and cancer causing dioxins are fat soluble toxins we encounter on a regular basis. When we are stress, our body gains and stores fats where these fat soluble toxins go and stay. That is why we feel exhausted and fatigue. Our digestive system must be able to break down these fats and with the help of gut associated lymphatic tissues our body is able to assimilate good fats and detoxify the bad fats that causes cancer, alzheimers and parkinsons,etc. The bile must neutralize the acids coming out of the stomach. If stomach acids come out of stomach in the small intestines and there’s not enough bile, that acid can cause heartburn and acidity. Irritation of upper intestinal mucosa can cause more mucus formation making the villi of intestinal tract non-functional and make the pancreas stop secreting digestive enzymes, hence, we are not able to digest foods. Digestive insufficiency will lead to dysbiosis (insufficient amounts of beneficial gut flora)and further acidosis. Acidosis can result to impaired removal of toxins from our body. We need to make dietary changes by increasing our intake of alkalinizing foods such as leafy green vegetables, and reducing intakes of acidifying foods like beef, dairy and eggs. Acid-forming foods, such as meat, dairy, breads and baked goods, and refined sugar, will increase body acidity, whereas the more alkaline vegetarian foods enhance cleansing and the detoxification processes in the body.
Moreover, the bile attaches itself to parasites and cancer causing chemicals. After chronic exposure to these toxic substances, the body can become sluggish in eliminating them. 90% of the bile gets reabsorbed back to the liver with toxins in tow and they get re-circulated into the bloodstream, wrecking havoc throughout the body. Our liver then becomes toxic and congested. The bile becomes thick and for years it may stop its flow as well. When we eat a heavy fatty meal, the food just sits there. We get stomach aches, nauseous after a heavy meal. Bile with toxins that get re-circulated into the bloodstream may start to look for different fatty sites and when they get to our brain, we become more vulnerable to loss of cognitive function- we experience memory loss, focus and clarity problems. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases are related to accumulation of neurotoxins and fat soluble toxicity that build up in the brain tissue. Hence, with a weak liver, it will have a hard time regulating blood sugar; it won’t convert fats and proteins into glucose; and the production of important blood proteins essential for blood clotting may not be sufficient; and bilirubin (produced by destruction of old red blood cells) maybe elevated.
Our kidneys regulate the fluid and electrolyte balance of the body by continually filtering the blood. To perform this important function they are able to: 1) excrete or conserve salt and water 2) control body pH 3) eliminate waste products of metabolism from the body.
Kidneys help remove wastes from our bloodstream so when they fail, the build up of wastes in our blood can cause rashes, severe itching, and dryness. Topical creams usually won’t help. It also results in swelling of the face, hands, legs , ankles and feet.
Kidney disease can also result in anemia as it lowers the production of the hormone Erythropoietin that it produces and which is needed in the red blood cell production. This will decrease the oxygen delivery to the cells resulting to fatigue and general body weakness.
Heavy metal cadmium from burning oil and coal, phosphate fertilizers and incineration of municipal wastes are major sources of kidney problems. And not to forget how smokers are directly inhaling twice the amount of cadmium into their lungs than non-smokers.
It is clear that toxins can be efficiently eliminated via the renal system. However, if the kidneys are not functioning optimally, toxins that should be filtered from the blood, and remain in circulation in the body. It is clear that toxins can be efficiently eliminated through our kidneys. 
The lymphatic system is key to the neutralization, transportation and elimination of toxic deposits. The lymph travels throughout the body, fighting infection and inflammation. It is an integral part in the removal of toxins from our connective tissues and re-circulate nutrients and proteins back into our blood stream. When there is a build-up of toxic wastes in the system, we always observe a swelling in the lymph nodules.
Another group of toxins that our body has to deal with are our emotional toxins, our problematic past relationships, those patterns of behaviour and belief systems we created as youngster in order for us to feel safe and secure. They are what makes us do the same dumb thing over and over again eventually affecting the functions of our physical body such as inhibiting our digestive system to function optimally. They are as well stored in our body.
As we encounter these toxins on a regular basis, there is a need for our body to detoxify. There are so many suggested procedure of detoxifying the body. But, we need to know that our body can naturally detoxify on its own. Our body has its natural ability to detoxify the toxins in the fat cells and optimized our digestion. We can have better success with our detox with the help of our homeopathic remedy prescribed to us after considering our totality of symptoms. Our homeopathic remedy is unique to us. It will act on our liver, pancreas and intestinal tract to support detoxification through our digestive tract. It will act on our emotional toxins. These homeopathic remedies are like enzymes and hormones in controlling the homeostatic balance within our body to maintain a functioning harmony between all parts. Our body will learn and regulate itself after it is gently stimulated to perform its basic functions. We will then start to feel better. Our mental and emotional issues that keep us stuck in a certain way for many years will disappear to our great relief. To further maintain our health progress, we need to develop certain lifestyle modifications to remove our daily routine exposure to smoking, dependency on over-the-counter medications, alcohol, ingestion of pesticides, xenobiotics and xenoestrogens from food sources. Regular activity and exercise will encourage optimal circulation in the body and adequate consumption of pure, clean water is always encouraged for a healthy lifestyle.

Acidity and your Health

Posted on 17 February, 2014 at 15:32 Comments comments (65)


Our body is unique as it has the ability to balance itself. Anyone who wants to maintain optimal health must focus on the body’s ACID-BASE BALANCE. Knowing what’s happening inside our body will give clarity as to why we need to watch what we eat, why we are suffering at present and why a Homeopathic approach is best.
Acid-base balance refers to having no excess acids or bases and blood is in acid-base balance at an alkaline pH. The body organs involved in the acid-base balance are our lungs, kidneys, connective tissue, bones, and stomach. Together with our body secretions and fluids, each have their respective pH levels. When our breathing is inadequate, carbon dioxide (respiratory acid) accumulates producing acid pH. At lowered pH, oxygen is much more able to dissociate from hemoglobin thus entering the tissue. At the lung, pH is more alkaline therefore hemoglobin binds oxygen more tightly for transport into the body. Without this process working effectively our cells would starved of oxygen and we would die. When normal metabolism is impaired, the body produces too much acid. -  e.g., poor blood supply stops oxidative metabolism and lactic acid forms. This acid is not respiratory so, by definition, it is "metabolic acid." If severe, the patient may be in shock and require treatment, possibly by neutralizing this excess acid with bicarbonate, possibly by allowing time for excretion/metabolism. Blood pH is so important that it indirectly influences systems throughout the body when acidity gets too high. Blood pH - 7.38 - 7.42. A person can only survive for hours if their blood pH is too low or too high.  The emergency is called metabolic acidosis or metabolic alkalosis. Causes of metabolic acidosis include ketoacidosis (seen in untreated diabetes) and renal failure. Causes of metabolic alkalosis include excessive vomiting (through loss of hydrochloric acid) or hypokalemia (low potassium in blood). 
The body is designed to cope with huge amount of acids coming into the system  using the bicarbonate buffer system. Sources of acids in the body are stress, decreased alkaline substances in the diet, increased acids in the diet, toxins, medications, chronic illness (#1 source) and dysbiosis (imbalance of bacteria) in the gut. Disruption in the bacterial flora and inflammation can cause “leaky gut” which eventually cause allergies, food intolerances and eczema. High sources of acids in our diet comes from consumption of animal proteins which include milk, cheese, meat, refined sugars and grains (rice and wheat flour). Foods which cause high stress to the body like coffee are also acidifying due to activation of the stress pathways. Treatment of acidity should be considered in most digestive disorders  like IBS, Crohn’s disease, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, constipation, bloating and food intolerances.
Appearance of cellulites happens when the connective tissue becomes rigid as it gets overloaded with acids and the fat cells bulge out giving the characteristic dimples. Treatment by removing acids from connective tissue and improving the lymphatic flow with massage and exercise will help. 
Emotional and psychological stress causes secretion of various hormones (adrenaline, nor-adrenaline, cortisol) which leads to metabolic process alterations whose end products are acids. Our kidneys excrete both bicarbonates and hydrogen ions. If blood is acidic, the kidney resorbs more bicarbonate making urine more acidic. If there are sufficient buffers, excess bicarbonate is excreted into the urine which causes the urine to be alkaline.
Cancer cells survives only in acidic and anaerobic environment. Transcription factor p53 which is responsible for programmed cell death does not function in pH less than pH6.4 An acidic matrix aids in metastasis and an acidic pH make cells more susceptible to mutations. When matrix full of acids, cells are more likely to switch to anaerobic respiration (due to lack of oxygen) which favours the tumours. Tumours additional blood flow is to get additional glucose, not oxygen. Acidity may lead to calcium loss which encourage migration of malignant cells through the walls of the blood vessels due to membrane instability.
Our bone is a source of bicarbonate and phosphate buffers. If pH of tissue is acidic, osteoclasts (breakdown bones) are activated and osteoblasts (build up bones) are inhibited. Acidic tissue is a sign that there is a chronic problem with excess acids in the body. pH directly affects bone metabolism so that the body systems  stay in acid-bas balance. The body puts more importance in regulating the blood pH than on structural integrity of bones. With every loss of buffer, minerals such as calcium are also lost and excreted into the urine making us more susceptible to osteoporosis.When there is chronic acidity and the buffer system is taxed, the body will store acids in the matrix which may impair its ability to function resulting to inability of nutrients, hormones, oxygen and cell wastes to pass through the matrix. This will result to nerve firing inappropriately  or lack of firing (nerve depolarization). Likewise, it will result to disruption in lymphatic system due to increase water in the connective tissue matrix decreasing lymphatic flow.
Osteoporosis is more a deficiency of alkaline substances, not just calcium. Commonly, the patient will be prescribed calcium supplements and dietary intake including milk and cheeses which are the most acidifying foods a person can consume. There is little evidence on epidemiological basis that shows consuming dairy products has any benefit on bone fracture and osteoporosis (pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/115/3/736.full.pdf+html) and according to Alkaline-Acid Theory, consuming highly acidifying dairy products without corresponding increase in alkaline-rich vegetables have the opposite effect on bones.
In osteoarthritis, acidosis in the extracellular matrix can induce chondrocyte apoptosis which leads to reduce cartilage formation and shift towards degeneration.
Detoxification is a great way for better health but is only possible with balanced pH because if the body is acidic there will be decrease excretion of toxins and toxins are bound more strongly to the cell membrane making them harder to be remove.
Homeopathy’s holistic approach will help greatly with disorders of acid-base balance. It was found out that most people eating and supplementing adequately are still acidic because of stress brought by mental and emotional issues. Homeopathic remedy personally prescribed to the individual will help overcome his mental and emotional stresses together with his physical problems.

Help with EMF Radiation Related Problems

Posted on 10 February, 2014 at 23:50 Comments comments (62)
The advancement in technology in our society that includes using microwaves, cellphones, cordless phones, computers, wifi, smart meters, power lines and broadcast towers has contributed to health crisis brought by electromagnetic radiations. People were told there is nothing to worry about as there is no conclusive evidence to support a link between electrical radiation and disease. However, more people gets diagnosed with cancer, more children born with autism, many suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis and other neurological diseases. Our body’s natural EMF which resonates with the earth’s magnetic field at around 10 Hertz is  severely disturbed when exposed to 100 million times greater EMF from the different technologies in our environment. These high electromagnetic radiations affect our health by altering and damaging our DNA, suppressing our immune system, causing general lack of vitality, headaches, dizziness, sleep disorder, memory disorder, eventually developing into brain tumors. We also expect our blood inflammatory markers like copper and Transforming Growth Factor (TGF - Beta 1) to be elevated, and the hormone, neurotransmitters levels abnormal. With all these going around us, we need to find out how we can protect ourselves and our loved ones from these invisible and perfectly silent enemies. 
We can protect ourselves by using Stetzer filters, by getting rid of cordless phones, by limiting the use of cellphones, and by using metal housing covers like silver coated cloth to cover our windows or, moving houses. We can do all those, but, knowing which one can truly help us heal deeply in the cellular/ energy level is good to know. 
Homeopathy can help protect and heal us from the ill effects of electromagnetic radiations. Homeopathy is a dynamic, therapeutic medical system, designed to cure its patients by enhancing the healing/recovery process following the onset of illness/harm. It can induce biological systems to up-regulate reparative and protective mechanisms. These protective processes are activated in the cellular level during biological (pandemic), chemical (toxin), and radiation exposures.  Homeopathic remedies in highly diluted form, prescribed after considering the patient’s totality of symptoms can greatly help with central nervous system affectations and with acute and chronic infections. They act as catalysts to stimulate the body’s natural defense mechanism to combat the disease. Homeopathy is great for cancers, cardiovascular and central nervous system diseases and chronic infections because it does not chemically burden an already weakened system. It controls the homeostatic balance within and maintains a functioning harmony of all its body parts. As a result, we see improvement in patient’s energy, aches and pains much improved, mental and emotional issues improved, children’s behavioral problems and learning disabilities are improving as well.
If you feel your problem is related with the EMF radiations and you need some help, please  don’t  hesitate to book an appointment. I will be glad to help you.

Homeopathy's Holistic Approach Works

Posted on 3 February, 2014 at 13:43 Comments comments (74)
Pain is the sign of a proper immune response to an abnormal situation which could mean a congestion of lymph, blood, and waste matter. The physical congestion leads to poor oxygenation with the deprived tissues signaling with pain. It maybe pain in the joints, head, nerves, muscles, or organs. The body’s health is define by the blood and lymph condition as well as the functions of digestion, metabolism and elimination of waste. Chronic pain indicates that the immune response and self-cleaning ability of the body is not enough and the cause of the problem is on going. This happens when our main organ of elimination, our liver, is weak. Liver gets congested with stones as well as the gallbladder resulting in inadequate secretion of bile causing improper digestion. People whose gallbladder has been removed can expect digestive problems as they don’t have the bile needed for proper digestion to occur. Liver congestion happens more in the absence of gallbladder resulting in an ever-increasing amount of toxic waste that accumulates in the intestinal tract and lymphatic system. The restricted ability to digest and assimilate fats lead to increase production of cholesterol. The side-effect is generation of more cholesterol stones in the liver. Congested liver can result in more serious complications such as heart disease and cancer. Everything is interconnected in our body. Our mental and emotional state in handling day to day stress greatly affect how our body works. This is why Homeopathy’s holistic approach helps with pain and other diseases. Medical science has to accept the fact that a healing method like homeopathy which has been around for 200 years can make all the difference in the treatment of most threatening diseases that plague our society.

Why prefer to see a Homeopath?

Posted on 3 February, 2014 at 13:32 Comments comments (37)
It is always worth visiting a homeopath. The homeopath will always be eager to know all your symptoms. Symptoms represents the efforts of the body to defend and heal itself from a variety of infections and/or stresses. Medical science today is increasingly recognizing symptoms as adaptive responses of the body. Symptoms are caused by something and getting rid of the symptoms by taking drugs does not mean that the person is cured. Drugs suppress and inhibit the symptoms provide only a guise of success. It usually drive the disease deeper into the body, leading to more serious illness. Drugs create effects that are often worse than the original disease. The symptoms and disease suppression is precisely the reason why many people today are suffering from chronic diseases and why there are many suffering from mental illness as the physical disease is suppressed deep enough and pushed into the psyche. 
A homeopath's approach to health is always individualized (tailored to each person). Homeopaths need to know the patients’ mental, emotional and physical symptoms at all times prior to giving any homeopathic remedy. This is necessary because homeopaths focus is on the patient as a whole and not just on the specific sickness that the patient is experiencing. Homeopathy uses the Law of Similars - Like cures like. The remedy chosen must have the totality of symptoms of the patient. Minute doses of either plant, animal or mineral is used to treat the patient’s symptoms in a very gentle and effective way. 
Homeopathic remedies work with the body to help stimulate the body to heal itself. The body’s defense mechanism is stimulated to prevent or treat illnesses as against the conventional medical way where drugs are given to suppress symptoms.

Homeopathy on Diseases

Posted on 3 February, 2014 at 12:57 Comments comments (50)
Disease is commonly understood as an impairment in the normal functioning of a body part. Homeopathy, on the other hand, goes beyond just the physical. It believes in the vital force that supports and connects the person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being. When there is a disturbance in the vital force, before a disease is diagnosed, the person as a whole becomes sick first. And, in order to initiate a successful healing, we have to treat the man in the disease rather than the disease in the man (Sankaran). Homeopathy always looks at the person as a whole. Several people exposed to the same stressful situation react in completely different ways. Hence, people diagnosed with same kind of illness, each will be prescribed different remedies. 
There are over 4,000 homeopathic remedies in the book of Materia Medica. They were tested in healthy individuals and recorded in accurate detail what it can produce in terms of symptoms and in terms of feelings. When a patient is seen by a homeopath, his individual state of mind and symptoms are assessed and an appropriate remedy is chosen from among the 4,000 remedies in Materia Medica. The homeopathic remedy is given in an ultra diluted doses called potencies. When the remedy is given, the person’s vitality is stimulated and healing is produced at a wholistic level which means he is healed as a whole, as well as the diseased pathology in his body.
