Food allergies: From Milk to Monkey Nuts

In my last blog I was chatting about allergies and Summer allergies; Hay fever in particular. Now lets consider other types of allergies and intolerance. We tend to think of mainly food allergies, dairy and nut being the most well known. However, I have found that people can become intolerant and allergic to virtually any substance they come into contact with. Here is a list of just some: House dust, House dust mite, Cats, Dogs, Horses, Milk, Dairy products generally, Specific nuts, Nuts generally, Wheat, Gluten, Rice, Yeast (in food), Mold, Fruit (particularly fruits like apples which retain the flower as part of the fruit.) You may identify with one or more of these or it might be that you...

Allergies: Hay Fever

Of all allergies Hay Fever is probably the easiest to control and, in many cases, to cure. Many years ago a colleague friend of mine from Sweden shared with me the result of his research that he had refined into a standard One-Size-Fits-All (or nearly all) treatment for Hay Fever.

The Homeopathic Dectective

A Homeopath, in fact any doctor, deals with cases and events in people’s lives on a daily basis which are fascinating, complex and intriguing. It is a bit like being a detective trying to solve a mystery, you have to see patterns in seemingly insignificant and apparently unconnected symptoms and actions which provide the clues to finding a true cure. People are interested in other people, what happens to them and especially their private lives. Therefore it has many times be suggested that I write about some of the common, and not so common, cases which present in my surgery. Having run my own busy practice for nearly 30 years I have many fascinating cases and well-developed observations which have enthralled my...
