HOW DID YOU COME TO HOMEOPATHY?

I was hospitalized for 13 weeks aged ten when I was seriously ill. Although conventional medicine saved my life I was left with emotional and physical scars. In my early twenties I started to self-study herbalism and healing, but it was homeopathy that really helped me on a completely different level with my persistent symptoms. In the mid 80's I met many homeopaths and found out more about homeopathic philosophy and Materia Medica, this led to me enrolling with Misha Norland's School of Homeopathy from which I graduated in 1990.

 

 

 

VITA &  PUBLICATION
 

I am a Registered Homoeopath with the Society of Homoeopaths and have been in practice since 1990, after having completed four year training. I abide by the Society's Code of Ethics and Practice and have full insurance arranged through them. In addition to my private practice I am also a supervisor for other homeopaths and a Director of the Society of Homeopaths.

I have clinics in London and Shropshire and online via Skype. In the early 1990’s I started to work with students from a variety of colleges, who found me to be a natural teacher, this led to working with the London College of Classical Homeopathy (LCCH) and the establishment of the first teaching clinic at Purton House Homeopathy Centre. I was a Clinical Supervisor at the University of Westminster on the BSc (Hons) Health Sciences: Homeopathy degree course between 2001-2009. I have also taught at the London College of Classical Homeopathy and run college clinics there and at Purton House Homeopathic Centre.

 

WARUM HAST DU DIE HOMÖOPATHIE GEWÄHLT?

Als ich 10 Jahre alt war, lag ich 13 Wochen im Krankenhaus  und war ernsthaft krkrank. Wenn auch die herkömmliche Medizin mein Leben gerettet hatte, blblieben emotionale und psychische Narben zurück. Mit Anfang 20 fing ich an NNaturheilkunde und Heilung zu studieren, aber es war die Homöopathie, die mir aauf einer komplett anderen Ebene bei meiner hartnäckigen Erkrankungen half. MMitte der 80er Jahre traf ich viele Homöopathen und fand mehr über hhomöopathische Philosophie heraus und über Materia Medica. Dies bewegte mmich dazu, mich an der Misha Norland's Schule für Homöopathie eieinzuschreiben, die ich 1990 erfolgreich abschloss.

 

 

LEBENSLAUF & VERÖFFENTLICHUNGEN

 

Ich bin ein registrierter Homöopath im Verein der Homöopathen und praktiziere seit 1990, nachdem ich meine fünfjährige Ausbildung absolviert habe.

Ich habe Praxen in London und Shropshire und online via Skype. In den frühen 90er Jahren fing ich an mit Studenten aus unterschiedlichen Colleges  zusammenzuarbeiten. Dies führte mich zur Zusammenarbeit mit dem London College der klassischen Homöopathie (LCCH) und der Gründung der ersten Lehrklinik im Purton Haus Homöopathie Zentrum. Ich war als klinischer Betreuer an der Westminster Universität an der BSc (Hons) Gesundheitswissenschaften: Studiengang der Homöopathie zwischen 2001 und 2009. Ich habe auch gelehrt am Londoner College für klassische Homöopathie und arbeitete an dortigen College Kliniken und im Purton Haus - homöopathisches Zentrum.

Treating hay fever successfully with homeopathy  - 2017 - MAY

 

Little has been written about the treatment of hay fever with homeopathy and yet it continues to be a challenge for both students of homeopathy and for more experienced prescribers.

 

As a case supervisor at many colleges I have found this to be an area which needs to be addressed afresh each year. For the more experienced practitioner I have tried to bring together in one place information on the remedies that are most commonly required in the treatment of hay fever, as it is certainly an area of everyday homeopathic practice where a thorough knowledge of therapeutics is required.

 

When the correct remedy is found, as we all know, results can be amazing, but getting there can be difficult! In this article, which is adapted from my eBook How to treat Hay fever successfully with Homeopathy (2007) I will look at materia medica, repertory and the philosophy of treating hay fever and how I use this to guide me in treating this condition.

 

Hay fever is also known as seasonal allergic rhinitis, this is important to remember if searching in modern repertories, materia medica or on the internet. It is diagnosed when symptoms are present for an hour, or more, a day on most days during the season. Pollens of grasses, flowers, trees and sometimes airborne mould spores cause the seasonal type. Hay fever symptoms can be worse in the city than the countryside for some people, as there are more male trees planted and consequently more tree pollen. The term ‘perennial allergic rhinitis’ is used when symptoms are present for more of the year and is often caused by a sensitivity to house dust, house dust mites, moulds, pollutants and animal dander.

 

Remedies and materia medica

Repertorisation can lead to unsatisfactory results in the search to find a remedy to cover a patient’s hay fever symptoms. A rubric search in Synthesis (2007) using the keyword ‘hay fever’ only produces eight rubrics, although there are also sub-rubrics. In Kent’s Repertory there are only four rubrics including sub-rubrics. So one needs to look at specific sections of the repertory to cover symptoms in the eye, nose, throat, face and respiration. However, using the results of repertorisation often brings up remedies which do not match the patient’s acute picture; it therefore seems to be necessary to know your materia medica well. The rubric ‘Nose hay fever’ in Synthesis Repertory (2007) lists 125 remedies and in Kent’s Repertory 32 remedies and it is important to be able to differentiate between 30-40 of these remedies.

Undoubtedly the most commonly indicated remedies are: Allium cepa, Arsenicum album, Euphrasia officinalis, Kali iodatum, Natrum muriaticum, Nux vomica and Sabadilla officinarum. Of course any remedy could be the similimum for a particular patient, but these remedies are often similar enough to achieve a significant amelioration of symptoms. Sometimes the acute remedy is the same as the chronic remedy. This is often seen with Arsenicum, Natrum muriaticaum, Nux vomica, Silicea and Sulphur.

Other important remedies include: Ambrosia artemisefolia, Apis, Arsenicum iodatum, Arum triphyllum, Arundo, Carcinosium, Cyclamen, Dulcamara, Gelsemium, Naphthalin, Psorinum, Pulsatilla, Ranunculus bulbosa, Rosa damascena, Rhus tox, Sanguinaria, Sinapis nigra, Sticta pulmonaria, Teucrium and Wyethia.

 

I have chosen to look in this article at information on four of the less common remedies: Ambrosia artemisefolia, Arundo, Naphthalin and Sticta pulmonaria.

Ambrosia artemisefolia

This remedy made from Common Rag weed is characterised by intolerable itching of the eye lids. The eyes are congested, smarting and watery. The whole respiratory tract and head are stuffed up (Vithoulkas 1995). The nose is additionally red and swollen with watery coryza. The face maybe dark red. There may be oppressive pain in the left side of chest, must sit up to breathe comfortably; may awaken suddenly with pertussis like cough.

 

ARUNDO

This remedy made from an Italian grass experiences/produces symptoms of burning and itching in the ears, palate and conjunctiva. The itching palate is similar to the more commonly prescribed Wyethia. Burning and itching of nostrils and roof of mouth. Salivation might accompany coryza. Loss of smell. Pain at the root of nose. Several authors state that they might become hysterical; Vithoulkas writes that this comes from a fear that they might not be able to breathe (1995).

 

NAPHTHALIN

A coal tar product, breathing the fumes of which produced hay fever like symptoms

(Lippincott quoted in Clarke, 1986). Fluent excoriating discharge from nose with much sneezing and lachrymation. Itching mouth, nose, eyes, ears. Stuffed up frontal sinuses and forehead, fullness and pressure. Nose red, hot, sore and swollen. Better in open air, desire to have doors and windows open and to loosen clothes.

 

STICTA PULMONARIA

Lungwort. The patient requiring this remedy would constantly blow their nose, but with no discharge. Sensation as if stuffed up at the root of the nose. Dryness in the mouth and throat, uvula like leather. Burning eyelids, worse for turning the eyes. Dry racking cough worse inspiration. There can be incessant sneezing which then dries up.

 

The philosophy behind the treatment plan

Although Kent states in his lecture on Sabadilla (1986 ) that hay fever is a psoric condition, if you look at the remedies listed under ‘Nose - hay fever’ in any repertory you will also find a number of syphilitic and a few sycotic remedies. Interestingly Tuberculinum is rarely indicated for hay fever, although it is so often indicated for the other atopic diseases asthma and eczema. I have seen Carcinosin cure hay fever symptoms; it is included in the rubric ‘Nose- hay fever- chronic’ as an addition from Foubister. One might ask why other remedies are not listed here too, part of the problem when repertorising hay fever!

Kent states “These are not the constitutional remedies; they do not cure, but only palliate during the severe attacks.”(1986 p839), although as I stated earlier they can sometimes be one and the same remedy. It is important not to mix up acute and constitutional symptoms in case analysis. I would also suggest that some of the remedies in the larger ‘Nose hay fever’ rubric are constitutional and not acute, your interpretation of homeopathic philosophy will dictate how you use this information, but I would certainly be aware of the distinction between acute and chronic.

There are occasions when you will be unable to take a deeper case until you have treated the acute hay fever symptoms. I believe that this is because the energy of the vital force is expressed through those acute symptoms most strongly at that time and the underlying chronic state is not currently being expressed by the vital force.

 

Potency and posology

I have found a protocol which works well in most cases is to give a 30c or 200c three times per day for a couple of days with the instruction to stop if much better or much worse after one or more doses and to start again if symptoms return.

I find that it is important to take a full case history for several reasons: firstly the same remedy can work both constitutionally and acutely and secondly the potency must as always take into account the patient’s vitality and pathology; this might guide you as to using either the 30th or 200th potency. There are times when it is of course safer to prescribe a 6c, 12c or 15c rather than a higher potency. I have not seen particular success using LM’s. In intractable cases ‘plussing’ of the remedy may be required.

There is always the danger of creating a proving with a close remedy and an eye must be kept open for this possibility. I have seen this happen with a plussed remedy and with a 1M too frequently repeated.

 

Conclusion

I nearly always find that if the correct remedy has been chosen, there will be a marked improvement in hay fever symptoms, but the problem is finding the correct remedy from among many that are so similar. Accurate and detailed case taking is important to clarify a patient’s symptoms; this then needs to be matched with a thorough understanding of hay fever therapeutics. I always found it useful to have my 'Hay fever Therapeutics' notes to hand in the consulting room between May and August as there was a gap in the homeopathic library in this area. It was to fill this gap that I wrote the eBook How to treat hay fever Successfully with Homeopathy.

 

Case one

A thirty one year old marketing consultant came to see me several years ago suffering with hay fever. He was allergic to tree pollen, cats and house dust. It had been worse the last couple of years. He said he had tried all the usual tablets.

His hay fever was worse for drinking alcohol, worse being around people smoking and worse in open top cars. His nose felt prickly inside, he would sneeze and sniff a lot. His eyes were watery and itchy. He said he wanted to take his head off it was so itchy. It helped to rinse his face with cold water. The nose was itchy, blocked, drizzled and he blew his nose a lot. His eyes could get itchy, especially the lower rims and lower canthi. In fact his whole being would become itchy. He could wake at night with a blocked nose. Getting shaving foam up his nose made him more itchy and sneezy.

I asked him a bit about his health in general and he told me that he was someone who felt the cold. As a child he used to worry about trivial details. In his teens he had academic success, won math’s prizes. He got into debating and public speaking which helped his confidence; he became president of a debating society. He described himself as tidy and very well organized, steering into obsession, logical order. He cared deeply about everything that he did.

I prescribed the homeopathic remedy Silicea 10M for him.

 

Based on the following rubrics and materia medica similarity:

FACE – ITCHING

NOSE - ITCHING – Inside

EYE - ITCHING – Lids

NOSE - OBSTRUCTION – night

NOSE - DISCHARGE – dripping

GENERALS - COLD - applications - amel.

GENERALS - FOOD and DRINKS - alcoholic drinks - agg.

GENERALS - HEAT - lack of vital heat

MIND - MATHEMATICS - ability for

MIND - TIMIDITY - public; about appearing in

 

This case analysis is a combination of hay fever symptoms and constitutional symptoms taking into account his general allergic nature. I do not generally mix constitutional and acute symptoms in analysis. The chronic picture can be masked by the acute state, but sometimes acute and chronic are the same remedy as in this case. 10M was a high potency to start the case with, and caused some initial aggravation, followed by long term improvement.

Just nine days later he reported that he was ‘Doing well, great, less allergic than usual.’ He had initial detox reaction – on the first day he had a cold sweat, on the second day bad headache and nausea, ok on the third day. On the fourth day after taking the homeopathic remedy he went to the park at dusk, had alcohol, got chilly and there was pollen around; all things which usually made his hay fever worse. To his surprise he was fine until 10 pm and even then only sniffing a bit. He noticed that on the London Underground his nose was not affected. He just experienced a slightly itchy palate, usually a precursor to symptoms getting worse, but it did not develop in to anything more. He was sleeping more deeply and his nose was not feeling prickly.

Improvement continued over the rest of the year. He did so well that he did not experience any hay fever the following year and indeed only needed a repeat prescription three times over the next six years. He was able to move to the country which he thanked homeopathy for.

 

Case two

A telecommunications manager aged thirty five came to see me nine years ago.

He had hay fever with runny eyes, which felt sore and raw and very irritable. He had to wear sunglasses. He experienced sneezing that would not stop.

There was not much discharge from the nose, although he did get nosebleeds sometimes.

Sucking ‘Tunes’ helped. He had had steroid injections in the past and used antihistamines.

The hay fever was accompanied by increased irritability [the patient is a constitutional Nux vomica].

 

Rubrics used were:

NOSE - SNEEZING - coryza – without

NOSE - SNEEZING - hay asthma, with

NOSE - SNEEZING – paroxysmal

EYE – PHOTOPHOBIA

NOSE - CORYZA - accompanied by – photophobia

EYE - LACHRYMATION – profuse

EYE - PAIN - sore

 

Remedy prescribed: Euphraisa was the remedy that came through most strongly.

 

Follow up two weeks later reported that he had not needed to use any other medication. His sneezing was reduced by 70%.

He was only getting two or three sneezes rather than continuous paroxysms of sneezing. His eyes had been very good, not running much at all.

I repeated the remedy with success six times over the next nine years and he experienced no symptoms at all in three seasons.

 

Case three

The forty six year old owner of a chain of shops came to see me in June 2008.

He was experiencing a headache as part of his hay fever. Itchy, red and watery eyes. They were sticky and could stick together. The lower lids were particularly itchy. His eyes were better for rubbing. His vision was blurred at times. His nose was itchy inside. Discharge from the nose could be either watery or thick mucus. He would sneeze three or four times in succession. His nose blocked at night, but not during day. The back of throat was itchy and would then burns afterwards. He had a cough with his hay fever. His symptoms were worse from 8-9pm onwards. His health was fine otherwise and his work was busy. He used throat sweets, Vicks and antihistamines to help his symptoms.

 

Select rubrics:

Rubrics:

EYE – AGGLUTINATED

EYE - AGGLUTINATED – morning

NOSE - OBSTRUCTION - accompanied by - hay fever

THROAT - PAIN – burning

EYE - RUBBING - amel.

NOSE - ITCHING – Inside

NOSE - OBSTRUCTION – night

HEAD - PAIN - coryza – during

EYE - ITCHING - Lids – Margin

COUGH – DRY

 

Remedy: Causticum and Nux vomica had both helped the patient previously, but the best result was achieved from Ambrosia artemisifolia.

 

   Characterized by intolerable itching of the eye lids

 

   Eyes congested, smarting, watery

   Nose stuffed sensation, nose red and swollen with watery coryza

   Face dark red

   Oppressive pain left side of chest, must sit up to breathe comfortably, may awaken suddenly with pertussis like cough

   <evening until midnight

    Vithoulkas (1995) states that the whole respiratory tract and head are stuffed up

 

Follow up three days later: cough 30% less, eyes not itchy. After two weeks the patient reported that the cough was 75% improved.

He was no longer waking at night and he was experiencing no nasal symptoms.

 

Over the next nine years the remedy was repeated six times and he experienced no hay fever symptoms at all in three years.

What is the situation in UK for a homeopathic doctor?

 

Doctors who have trained with the Faculty of Homeopathy may practice in the UK. UK 'Common law' allows professional homeopaths to practice here.

 

 

 

How homeopathy, Conventional medicines agree in everyday life?

 

Of course conventional medicine can be lifesaving. I have personally had four major operations in my life, but the management of chronic health problems benefits greatly from homeopathic treatment in my experience both as a patient and as a practitioner.

 

 

 

What is your homoeopathically treatment approach. Is it clinically, metasomatically, constitutionally – others?

 

I am a classical homeopath taking a constitutional approach to case analysis, unless an acute remedy is required. I believe that Miasmatic analysis is important in the understanding of any chronic case. In most cases I find the understanding of the Psoric, Sycotic, Syphillitic, Cancer and Tubercular miasms is sufficient; however in some cases I think that there are also drugs or vaccination induced miasms, not just activation of latent miasms. I am also a trained CEASE therapist and find this approach combines miasmatitic, constitutional and drug or vaccine induced disease analysis in to an effective system when needed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is your specialty?

 

I specialise in the treatment of Autistic children.

I also continue to see clients of all ages with a wide range of health issues. I have particular experience working with asthma, infertility and senior citizens.

 

 

 

What must be remembered when I treat AUTISM homoeopathically ?

 

I find it essential to read reports from the psychologist and educational assessors who are monitoring the child and who made the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, before meeting the child. This gives a background to behaviour observed by others in a range of settings. I also ask the parents to write notes for me about the development of the child. I also ask that at least one parent and a carer or second parent attend the consultation. Having this information in advance makes for a more structured and homoeopathically useful initial meeting as the Parents will be focused on seeing to the child's immediate needs during the consultation whilst I observe and interact with the hid as much as possible.

 

 

 

Is there for your specialty commonly used clinical remedies?

 

I have researched this and written about it in my book, Homeopathy and Autism Spectrum Disorder: a guide for Practitioners & Families (2014). Of course there are more frequently occurring remedies, but it is important to see each case with fresh eyes looking for the characteristic symptoms rather than remedies for the diagnosis.

Ärzte, die in der Homöopathischen Fakultät ausgebildet wurden, können in UK praktizieren.  Das "Gewohnheitsrecht" der UK’s, erlaubt, das auf diese Weise professionell zu  praktizieren.

 

 

Wie integriert sich die Homöopathie im klinischen Alltag?

 

Selbstverständlich kann die konventionelle Medizin Leben retten. Ich selbst hatte vier große Operationen in meinem Leben, aber meiner Erfahrung nach profitiert das Management  von chronischen Gesundheitsproblemen in hohem Maße von der homöopathischen Behandlung, sowohl als Patient als auch als Arzt.

 

 

Wie ist dein homöopathischer Behandlungsansatz?

klinisch - miasmatisch – konstitutionell – andere?

 

Ich bin ein klassischer Homöopath, der nach einem konstitutionellen Ansatz seine Fälle analysiert, es sei denn ein akutes Heilmittel ist notwendig.

Ich glaube, dass miasmatische Analysen wichtig  sind, für das Verständnis eines jeden chronischen Falles. In den meisten Fällen finde ich das Verständnis für PSORA, SYKOSE, SYPHILINIE, KREBS & TUBERCULINISCHES MIASMA ausreichend.

Manchmal sehe ich bei einigen Fällen, dass auch durch Medikamente oder Imfungen induzierte Miasmen aktiviert werden.

Ich bin therapeutisch auch für solche Fälle ausgebildet. Ich suche dann kombinierte Ansätze, sowohl miasmatisch, medikamentös als auch körperlich in Kombination durch die Medikamente oder Impfstoff induzierte Krankheitsanalyse gemeinsam, zu einem effektiven System zu analysieren - wenn es nötig ist.

 

 

Was ist dein Spezialgebiet/Spezifizierung?

 

Ich bin spezialisiert auf die Behandlung mit autistischen Kindern.

Ich habe Patienten aller Altersgruppen, mit einem breiten Spektrum  von Gesundheitsproblemen. Ich habe  auch besondere Erfahrungen im Umgang mit Asthma, Unfruchtbarkeit und mit Senioren.

 

 

Was muss homöopathisch berücksichtigt sein,

bei der Behandlung von Autismus?

 

Das Lesen von psychologischen und pädagogischen Gutachtern finde ich wichtig, denn sie beobachten das Kind und stellen die Diagnose Autismus-Spektrum-Störung fest, bevor du das Kind triffst.  Man bekommt eine Reihe von Situationsgrundlagen zur Verhaltensbeobachtung durch die anderen Beobachter. Ich bitte auch die Eltern, Notizen über die Entwicklung des Kindes für mich zu machen. Ich frage auch, ob zumindest ein  Elternteil und den Pfleger oder beide Elternteile die Konsultation begleiten. All diese Informationen im Voraus  zu erhalten ist nützlich und sorgt für eine strukturierte erste homöopathische Sitzung, bei der die Eltern des Kindes während der Befragung die Bedürfnisse unmittelbar sehen. Ich versuche währenddessen so viel wie möglich zu beobachten

und alle Informationen zu interagieren.

 

Gibt es häufig verwendete homöopathische Mittel – bezogen auf deine Spezialisierung?

 

Ich habe dies untersucht und darüber in mein Buch geschrieben,

Homöopathie und Autismus-Spektrum-Störung:

Ein Leitfaden für Praktizierende und Familien (2014).

Selbstverständlich gibt es deutlich mehr Heilmittel, aber es ist wichtig jeden Fall neu zu sehen, um die Symptome zu charakterisieren, als ein Heilmittel für die Diagnose.

How do you see the future of homeopathy?

 

Historically, and currently, homeopathy has always been a challenge to the status quo and hard for science or Big Pharma to accept which makes our job difficult. However the public continue to want homeopathy if they know about it and the benefits that it can bring them.

 

 

Here are homeopathic

professional associations in UK?

 

The largest homeopathic organisation in the UK

is the Society of Homeopaths

 

http://www.homeopathy-soh.org/

 

 

 

I have been on the board of directors since 2011 and chair of the Professional Standards Committee during much of this time. There are several other organisations for professional homeopaths in the UK, as well as the Faculty of Homeopathy for doctors.

 

Which companies provide homeopathic remedies using in your country and there are special pharmacies for homeopathy?

 

The major homeopathic pharmacies in the UK are:

 

Helios

Ainsworths

Nelsons

Freemans

Weleda and Galens

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wie siehst du die Zukunft der Homöopathie?

 

Homöopathie stand schon immer in einem Wettkampf mit dem  Status quo, in der Vergangenheit ebenso wie gegenwärtig. Es ist hart für die Wissenschaft oder "Big Pharma" das  zu akzeptieren ist, das erwschwert unsere Arbeit.

Aber die Öffentlichkeit jedoch, möchte weiterhin die Homöopathie und die damit verbundenen Vorteile.

 

Gibt es Berufsverbände in UK ?

 

Die größte homöopathische Organisation im Vereinigten Königreich

ist die homöopathische Gesellschaft

 

http://www.homeopathy-soh.org/

 

 

Ich bin seit 2011 im Verwaltungsrat und die meiste Zeit war ich auch Vorsitzender des Fachnormenausschusses. Es gibt in der UK noch verschiedene andere Organisationen für professionelle Homöopaten, genauso wie die Fakultät für Homöopathie für Ärzte.

 

 

Welche Firmen / Apotheken in deinem Land stellen homöopathische Mittel her und/oder woher beziehst du sie?

BLOG & MIKE ANDREWS

 

You want to say something personal

to the German homeopaths ?

 

I would be keen to hear of your experiences or cases working with Autistic children. Are you finding the Lanthanide remedies useful for example?

 

 

THANK YOU MIKE

 

by everything we - thanks Mark Andrews - understand about AUTISM, we are sure that autism is treatable with homeopathy. Prohom thanks on behalf of all readers, that you Mike  shares all your knowledge with all of us.

 

You've read it, each of you as a therapist and homeopathic who have experiences with autism & Homeopathy - should be connected with him....

 

Möchtest du den deutschen Homöopathen

noch irgendetwas mitteilen?

 

Es wäre schön von euren Erfahrungen oder Fällen mit autistischen Kindern zu hören. Findet ihr zum Beispiel Lanthanide als Heilmittel hilfreich?

 

 

DANKE DIR MIKE

 

durch alles was wir - dank dir MIKE - verstehen gelernt haben, sind wir sicher, dass Autismus homöopathisch behandelbar ist. Prohom dankt stellvertretend für alle Leser, dass du dein Wissen mit uns allen teilst.

 

Aber Sie haben es gelesen, jeder der als Therapeut auch  Erfahrungen mit Autismus und Homöopathie gemacht hat - sollte sich unbedingt mit ihm in Verbindung setzen...
