<![CDATA[HOMEOPATHY WITH EDEL - Blog]]>Fri, 30 Apr 2021 23:13:41 +0000Weebly<![CDATA[Treating Austistic Spectrum Disorder]]>Thu, 29 Apr 2021 18:52:59 GMThttp://rhsl.ie/blog/treating-austistic-spectrum-disorderMichael Farrelly, Homeopath(May 2011)
Autism – the experience
I often feel that the daily life experience of a child with autism must be like someone who is living in some foreign country without knowing the local language and who is constantly exposed to the sense of fear, insecurity and stress. These children are unable to get in touch with our emotional world. They have lost confidence in this world and are in an imprisoned state; and will remain there until they regain the confidence to return to the “normal” emotional world. 
This also helps to explain why autism so often arises after vaccinations. Being injected with toxic vaccines can be the last straw for a sensitive, susceptible child. However, I have also treated autistic children who were never vaccinated, but a common occurrence is some traumatic emotional experience during the pregnancy or early childhood. The bottom line is that the level of trauma has been sufficient to trigger the autistic state and as every child is an individual, that level of trauma and the response to it will be individual. If everybody understood how a little child can become autistic, many preventative measures could be taken to dramatically reduce the number of autistic children all over the world. These children are not grounded, they have not incarnated properly, their spirit is reluctant to enter fully or retreats at any early stage in response to trauma.
Autism – treatment by homeopathy
In my view, the essence of the autistic condition is a loss of the self through cumulative assaults from the moment of conception and through the first few years, when the self emerges as a conscious entity. The self as a conscious entity has not emerged in these children. Of course, the focus of homeopathy is not to treat the isolated symptoms of the autistic child, but to treat the child as a whole. While any remedy may be required in any individual case, in my experience certain remedies come up more often than others. 
Some of these include the Solanacea family Stramonium, Hyoscyamus and Belladonna. 
Spider remedies, Mercurius, Cuprum, Veratrum Album, Zinc and Opium often arise. A remedy of great effectiveness in many cases is Saccharum Officinale. I owe a lot of my understanding of this remedy to Tinus Smits, the Dutch homeopath who sadly passed away in February 2010 and who wrote extensively about this remedy. Some other remedies I have found useful are Carcinosin, Milk remedies, Cicuta Virosa, Iodum, Baryta Carb, Placenta and Limestone.
If we look at some of the rubrics that three of these remedies have in common, we can get an insight into some causations as well as the terrible mental state of some of these children: Belladonna, Stramonium and Mercurius all have
Ailments from fright
Ailments from vaccination
There is a huge sense of being under attack
Delusion, murdered, he will be [Bell, Merc]
Delusion, pursued by enemies [Bell]
Delusion, surrounded by enemies/everyone is an enemy [Merc]
Delusion, is being injured [Stram]
Delusion, dogs attack him [Stram]
Fierce animals are ready to attack
Delusion, dogs sees [Bell]
Delusion, is alone in the wilderness [Stram]
Delusion, animals jump out of the ground [Stram]
A remedy that I have found very useful in some cases has been Thymus Gland. The word thymos denotes life-force or soul! The thymus gland is the organ that enables us to distinguish between what is “me” and “not me”. It helps create and maintain the immune system and it regulates the right amount of immunity, like a thermostat. It is very important in Cancer and Autoimmune diseases and, interestingly, many ASD children have biological markers consistent with an autoimmune disease. The thymus gland has been described as the “Black Box” of negative events, recording whatever has changed the original life pattern and the remedy can open the person up to past traumas, explore the darkness within and unlock and resolve maintaining causes of trauma. Part of its picture is also birth trauma (very common in ASD) and the overuse of all kinds of drugs, as well as a set facial expression (again common in ASD). I have found this remedy to be particularly powerful in bringing “hidden” symptoms into full view, often to be treated with other remedies.
Autism and vaccination
The use of homeopathic antidotes to vaccines, antibiotics and other medications the child has been exposed to, can give great results. I have seen some cases respond very favourably to this approach, especially to MMR and DPT but also to BCG. Of course, the success of this approach proves that for some children, vaccines are at least part of their difficulty. Despite the damage from them, more and more vaccines are being pushed, with more and more viruses and adjuvants in single shots. I think the word “shot” is very appropriate as it is like playing Russian Roulette with a child’s health. There’s so much evidence of this harm and yet the mainstream media continues to push the establishment line that all vaccines are necessary and safe. Even when harm is mentioned, anodyne words and phrases are used about how the policy is well intentioned, for the greater good etc. This is a difficult area for people exposed to the constant propaganda and brainwashing that masquerades as healthcare.
Autism and the bigger picture
One of the delightful consequences of treating autistic children is how often other family members also come for treatment. This is a gift from those children to their loved ones and from their loved ones to them, as the healing of an autistic child often involves wider family healing.
This article is dedicated to my son Adam, who is my joy, my happiness, my inspiration. He teaches me acceptance, perseverance and the ability to embrace change and difference. 
To my mother and brother Sean who both passed away in recent years, you will always be fondly remembered. 
Also, to all the special children calling out for healing for themselves and others.

<![CDATA[World Homeopathy Awareness Week 10th until 17th April 2021]]>Thu, 15 Apr 2021 17:06:17 GMThttp://rhsl.ie/blog/world-homeopathy-awareness-week-10th-until-17th-april-2021Homeopathy is like a hologram of your life story. Each part , every action that you take in your life story is connected to your totality as a person. This systematic and holistic framework helps the Homeopath choose a remedy or set of remedies that bring your life back to balance and improves your health.
Homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s own immune system to resist infection and susceptibility to disease. That makes it a long lasting and gentle healing system.
 
Homeopathy is about 
  • being mindful, being in the present for and with ourselves
  • Creating supportive environments for ourselves 
  • making adjustments to our life experiences
  • Respecting(understanding) our nature at the level of emotional, physical and spiritual experiences.
  • Remedies are used to help with the challenges experienced in ourselves, our family or community health
 
In a family environment, for example, a mother will choose ‘aconite’ or ‘arnica’ from her kit to help a child recover from accidents or wounds. The Bach Flower Rescue is another well used example of homeopathic remedies that help people at times of stress, for example, before exams.
 
Homeopathy has no harmful side effects, no dependency or withdrawal effects. 
 
Homeopathic Remedies are surprisingly inexpensive and hold well over long peiods of time.
 
Homeopathy is part of the Primary Care System delivering the Community an alternative healing system used by people since it’s inception by Dr. Samual Hahnemann in 1790’s

Gaia’ is the greek word describing our planet as having an existence that is more than the sum of its parts. We see this as individuals that our actions connect with other peoples actions, with community actions and world actions. The ‘Covid’ experience is an example of this in modern times.
 
In supporting the Earth’s ecosystem, Homeopathy is one of the diverse traditional healing system that has served to keep people healthy over the centuries. (Acupuncture, Ayurveda medicine, Shamanism and Chinese Medicine are other examples) The remedies are made from natural substances that are in sympathy with the earth's ecosystem. Taking what is needed and giving in return no toxic residue or exposing animals to testing that is injurious.
 
Homeopathic medicines are tested on healthy people. This is called ‘proving’. The symptoms experienced by the ‘provers’ are collated and the remedy identified then for general use. Arnica, Calendula and Children’s Indigo Essences are well known examples of this process that are in the pharmacies or health food shops.
 
Naturally occuring substances become remedies through a very specific process called ‘potentization’ that involves sequential dilution and succussion(hard pounding and shaking). The fascinating and scientifically confusing thing about homeopathyic remedies is that the more diluted they are, the stronger they become. Homeopathy is considered a process that works through sub molecular interventions.(Quantum Physics)
 
The Telosis Institute, USA were formed to promote and support health and well being by growing practitioner’s healing capacity. Supporting the practitioners through their own growth builds their capacity for healing. In Ireland the ‘Irish Society of Homeopaths’ supports Homeopaths to align themselves to standards and practices that are professional. These standards assures people of the quality of care they receive from the profession. The health insurance companies recognise the Society and refers to their professional listings when awarding payments to their clients.
 
The European Central Council of Homeopaths(ECCH) is another example of the profession lobbying the Euopean Union about the future of Homeopathy at a political level. So, the recognition of this valid and effective healing system will be continued into the future assuring people about it’s authenticity.

​How we treat ourselves in wellness and in illness matters. Studies in the USA show that between 2002 and 2007 there was a 14% increase in the uptake Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (Cam) therapies such as Homeopathy, flower essences and health coaching. This figures speaks for themselves in a positive way. People are voting with their feet. Cam therapies can and do offer people the space to heal themselves, return to a balanced energy in a sustainable way using techniques from our ancestors that are safe and reliable.

Cam Therapies such as Homeopathy are a real health choice in a modern world. Homeopathy supports Earth’s ecosystem, promotes health and  prevents disease for humans as well as animals.

<![CDATA[A Case of Autism Spectrum]]>Wed, 31 Mar 2021 21:02:27 GMThttp://rhsl.ie/blog/a-case-of-autism-spectrum​Homeopath Katherine Dehn
S was first diagnosed with ADHD and received medicine in 2008. At first they gave her Ritalin, then Motiron, then Concerta, but none of the drugs worked very well. After the Concerta she became very quiet and introverted and now for a year she has been on 25 mg Strattera.
She came off the Concerta in the autumn of 2011. Before she came off it she had no facial expression, no happiness or sorrow. When she came off it she slept 13/14 hours a day and she would not go to school. She only receives the medicine in order to be able to concentrate. When she started on the medicine she lost weight and lost her appetite. She was on a protein drink for a year. On Concerta and the other 2 types of medicine she had diarrhea and headache. She does not get that on Strattera.
Anamnesis
S is a blond, skinny girl. She is very pale. She has a nearly white, see-through complexion. It makes her appear very frail. does not want to have eye contact. She does not want to answer the questions. The mother does all the talking. She is very fidgety and keeps saying she wants to leave now.
Before the medicine she was unable to concentrate or sit down for long periods of time. She could not play games or become absorbed in anything. If S had a friend over, she might suddenly lash out at her friend or hit her in her head with a doll. (Here the girl becomes very uncomfortable and does not want her mum to elaborate on it, and says that she herself cannot remember such episodes.)
We used to find it very difficult to get her to calm down and we spent ages to try to get her to fall asleep in the evenings.
Family Anamnesis
The mother never thought she would get pregnant.  Suddenly pregnant at 41. Very emotional during the pregnancy and had a lot of mood swings. The mother is not aware of family history of diseases. I asked if either she or her husband have had any venereal diseases. She has not, but was unaware if husband has had any and not comfortable about asking.
Findings on the First Visit
S wakes up with a headache that is worse on eating breakfast. She cannot describe the pain. (She has recently received braces for her teeth from her dentist. She has to wear them at night and they are increasingly tightened and the headaches have started since the onset of using the braces.)
S cannot listen to anybody who talks for a long period of time. She finds it very difficult in the classroom if the teacher has to explain anything in detail. She has to fiddle with something in her hands.
Troubled or restless when about to relax.
Very disturbed if she has to plan anything when about to sleep. If she is looking forward to a birthday party the next day for instance, then she cannot settle. She needs a lot of time to prepare herself for an engagement. She can become frustrated, sad and angry if she is actually looking forward to something.
Started to do boxing in a sports club. Desires to hit things. A bit frightened of the dark. When she was younger she wanted total darkness when going to sleep.
Desires warm food. Brings her own cooked food, and heats it at school.
On Repretorisation
Mind, concentration difficult
Mind, concentration difficult- children in
Mind, spoken to; being-aversion
Mind, restlessness – children in
Mind, restlessness – sleep before
Mind, ailments from – anticipation
Mind, anxiety – anticipation; from – engagement; an
Mind, striking – children in
Generals, food and drinks – warm food – desire
Generals – heat- lack of vital heat
Prescription
Medorrhinum 1M because of the mental symptoms and Bach Rescue Remedy for night time.
Review 6 weeks later
Much more lively. She has laughed a lot more.
Had a headache.  Massive headache 8 days after taking the remedy. It was an old familiar headache and it lasted for 4 days.
No change in appetite. Still prefers warm food and white bread.
Has also eaten a lot of soft boiled eggs and rye bread.
She has not had so many mood swings and the irritability has not been a problem when she has not eaten.
During the last month she was invited to two birthdays and she was not restless or anxious beforehand. On the other hand she had to cancel boxing training twice as she did not feel like it. A couple of times she has shown that she was sad. She has cried on two occasions, and that is new. More sensitive, able to show her feelings, more brave in that way.
For 11 days we managed to get her to sleep on Bach Rescue Remedy. 
Prescription
Waite
Follow Up 2 after three months
Homeopath observations: is generally better. In fact, S even volunteered some information this time and answered some questions. She still wants to leave the clinic quite quickly.
‘I am fine.  Sleep is fine. She does not have to take anything to sleep anymore. In some ways it seems like she is more rested in less time. Still less mood swings. She is much more stable in herself.  She still needs us to be in the room with her when going to sleep during school days. Falls asleep at 22.30. Sleeps until 8 in the morning’.
‘The last month it has become difficult for me to concentrate. It was better.  But not so worried about things anymore’.
Recommendation: Medhorrhinum 1M 
Progress in the Following Year
Homeopaths observations: S is gradually growing up and becoming able to live her life, sensing both herself and life around her as well as becoming aware of her own needs and limitations. While this is happening her concentration and sleep are improving.
‘After the remedy a little bit of headache, but that has disappeared’.
‘No stomach pain No restlessness No anxiety I have not thought about death. Sleep is fine. I do not need to sleep as early as before. No anxiety before sleep. Concentration is okay, but if the other pupils distract her she is easily led astray.’

<![CDATA[Homeopathy and Green Medicine]]>Tue, 30 Mar 2021 22:25:18 GMThttp://rhsl.ie/blog/homeopathy-and-green-medicine​Homeopathy with Edel
​Green Medicine is part of the theme for World Homeopathy Week (4th until 10th April 2021). Advocates of Green Medicine such as the Telosis Institute USA, American M.D. Johnathan V. Wright, Hospitals for Health(H2E)USA want to develop coaches and practitioners who work with life stories in a way that promote deep lasting healing in the individual, the organisations and in the community.  
Protecting our right to natural health care and deepening the field of integrative Health and Medicine is important in the philosopy of Green Medicine. Healing practices such as homeopathy, health coaching and flower essence therapy are amoung the many therapies that are sustainable into the future and while less well known offer a real health choice for people looking to enhance their health and stay well naturally.
 
When our bodies are not working properly then we should be looking for the substances and energy to bring ourselves back to balance. Dr. Samual Hahnemann talked in his book, the Organon of the Medical Art,  about this energy as the ‘Vital Force’. In Aphorism 71 he talked about homeopathic medicines, ‘that engender symptoms most similar to the totality of disease are the only medicines that produce a cure of disease’.  The Homeopath’s, at interview with the client, will tease out these symptoms and match them with a suitable similar remedy. The choosen remedy awakens the person’s own self healing abilities within their body.
 
Homeopathic medicines(remedies) are tested on healthy people. This is called a ‘proving’. The symptom’s experienced by the  ‘provers’ are collated and the remedy is identified for general use. Examples of well known homeopathic medicines are Arnica, Calendula and the Bach Flower Remedies.
 
Naturally occuring substances become remedies through a very specific process called ‘potentization’ that involves sequential dilution and succussion(hard pounding and shaking). The fascinating and scientifically confusing thing about homeopathyic remedies is that the more diluted they are, the stronger they become. Homeopathy is considered a process that works through sub molecular interventions.(Quantum Physics)
 
Homeopathy is a holistic therapy. It gets to the root of illness by understanding the mind body relationship. The clients ‘story’ is important because the whole is more than the sum of the parts. Hahnemann wrote about the ‘spirit-life force’ or the ‘Vital Force’  enlivens the person and is dynamic. When this life force is mistuned then the person falls ill. Homeopathic medicines are capable of bringing healing because the medicine is similar to the person’s mistunement.(Aphorism 10/11)
 
Many Homeopaths are members of their own regulatory body thus assuring clients of their high standards of practice. In Ireland, the Irish Society of Homeopaths(ISH) provides such regulation and also ensures support for individual practitioners. The ISH is recognised by Health Insurance Companies who refer to them for their list of registered homeopaths. 
 
The Irish Society of Homeopaths is a member of the European Central Council of Homeopaths (ECCH). The ECCH focuses it’s representational activities within the European Union representing Homeopaths politically in terms of recognition and public policy. The ISH also has connections internationally with countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, India and further afield.
 
How we treat ourselves in wellness and in illness matters. Studies in the USA show that between 2002 and 2007 there was a 14% increase in the uptake Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (Cam) therapies such as Homeopathy, flower essences and health coaching. This figure speaks for itself in a positive way. People are voting with their feet that these therapies can and do offer them the space to heal themselves, return to a balanced energy in a sustainable way using and using techniques from our ancesters that are safe and reliable. That makes Cam Therapies such as Homeopahthy a real health choice in a modern world.

<![CDATA[In Harms Way: Toxic Threats to Children’s Development]]>Mon, 29 Mar 2021 20:39:18 GMThttp://rhsl.ie/blog/in-harms-way-toxic-threats-to-cildrens-development​Summerised by Homeopathy with Edel of an Article from Jill Stein, Ted Schettler, David Wallinga and Maria Valenti Year 2000
 
Child development can be better protected by more precautionary regulation of household and environmental chemicals.Meanwhile, health care providers and parents can play an important role in reducing exposures to a wide variety of known and suspected neurodevelopmental toxicants that are widely present in consumer products, food, the home, and wider community.

Developmental disabilities result from complex interactions of genetic, toxicologic (chemical), and social factors. Among these various causes, toxicologic exposures deserve special scrutiny because they are readily preventable. Lead, mercury, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have been extensively studied and found to impair development at levels of exposure currently experienced by significant portions of the general population. High-dose exposures to each of these chemicals cause catastrophic developmental effects.
 
Brain development begins early in embryonic life and continues well beyond birth into adolescence. During development, brain cells divide, migrate, differentiate, establish synaptic connections, and undergo programmed cell death (apoptosis) in an orchestrated sequence of events controlled by neuro- transmitters and other neurotrophic factors. Interference with any stage of this cascade of events may alter subsequent stages, so that even short-term disruptions may have long- term effects later in life. 
 
Mercury 
 
Mercury (Hg) is a potent neurodevelopmental toxicant commonly encountered as dietary methylmercury, which adversely affects enzymes, cellular membrane function, and neurotransmitter levels. In a prolonged poisoning episode in Japan and a more acute episode in Iraq, large prenatal methylmercury exposures were associated with psychomotor retardation, seizures, developmental delays, and mental retardation. Much smaller prenatal exposures from maternal consumption of contaminated fish in New Zealand (mean maternal hair level Hg 8.3 ppm) and the Faroe Islands (mean maternal hair level Hg 4.3 ppm) adversely affected IQ, language development, visual–spatial skills, gross motor skills, memory, and attention in offspring. 
 
As with lead, a historical review of our understanding of the neurodevelopmental toxicity of mercury shows that more refined testing has resulted in a steady decline in the exposure level thought to be “safe” and without adverse effects. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has recently developed a reference dose for mercury of 0.1 μg Hg/kg/day and estimates that mercury exposures at this level are likely to result in hair mercury levels of about 1.0 ppm. Maternal exposures at or below this level are thought unlikely to increase the risk of harm to the developing fetal brain.
 
Manganese 
 
The central nervous toxicity of manganese (Mn) due to occupational exposures is well characterized. Symptoms include gait and movement disorders, and in some cases, inappropriate behavior. More recently, the developmental neurotoxicity of manganese has emerged as a significant public health concern. In several small epidemiologic studies of children, manganese hair levels are associated with ADHD (27–29). Developmental exposure to manganese in laboratory animals is associated with hyperactivity. 
 
At low levels, manganese is an essential dietary trace element necessary for critical enzymatic reactions. The concentration of manganese in human breast milk is about 6 μg Mn/L, whereas infant formula may contain 77–100 μg Mn/L, depending on whether it has been supplemented; soy formula may naturally contain as much as 200–300 μg Mn/L (31,32). In 
infants, manganese easily gains access to the developing brain because of an immature blood–brain barrier. These observations raise questions about the wisdom of supplementing infant formula with manganese and the widespread use of infant soy formula containing naturally high concentrations of manganese. 
 
They are also further concerns about the use of gasoline supplemented with an organic manganese compound as an octane enhancer in the United States and Canada. The Ethyl Corporation (Richmond, VA, USA), the U.S.-based manufacturer of the additive, claims there is no evidence to support concerns that manganese in gasoline represents a threat to public health—an argument that is eerily reminiscent of their position on the use of tetraethyl lead many years ago. Present data indicates that the brain is vulnerable to long-lasting effects from developmental exposures to manganese. 
 
Polychlorinated Biphenyls 
 
The adverse neurodevelopmental impacts of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have been examined in several large epidemiologic studies. In humans, developmental exposures to PCBs at ambient environmental levels cause hyporeflexia, psychomotor delays, delayed cognitive development, and IQ deficits. Impaired learning, altered behavior, and hyperactivity have been demonstrated in laboratory animals. PCBs also alter thyroid hormone metabolism and may interfere with thyroid hormone-induced gene transcription. In humans, seals, rodents, and birds, PCB exposure causes decreased thyroid hormone levels. Some PCBs also alter neurotrans- mitter levels (47). For example, ortho-PCBs decrease dopamine synthesis, whereas non-ortho-PCBs increase dopamine levels. 
 
Because thyroid hormone is essential for normal brain development, the effects of PCBs and other chemicals that interfere with thyroid hormone homeostasis are of particular concern. Children with learning disabilities are often alienated, isolated, and misunderstood. Some developmental disabilities increase the risk of substance abuse, delinquency, criminal behavior, and suicide. 
 
As the science of neurodevelopment slowly evolves, questions about appropriate preventive actions deserve consideration. The neurodevelopmental effects of relatively few compounds encountered in the ambient environment are well characterized. Yet, even these limited data highlight the profound vulnerability of the developing brain. 
 
Comparisons of animal and human data for lead, mercury, and PCBs show that laboratory animal studies tend to underestimate human neurodevelopmental sensitivity by 2–4 orders of magnitude. In each case, reference or benchmark doses were continuously revised downward as human data were developed because:
1. Neurodevelopmental data are lacking for the large majority of known or suspected neurotoxicants. 
2. Regulatory agencies have generally failed to require neurodevelopmental testing of chemicals before they are marketed. 3. None of the voluntary testing programs proposed by the chemical industry in the United States includes neurodevelopmental testing. 
 
In its Sixth Biennial Report on Great Lakes Water Quality, the International Joint Commission (IJC) advocated a weight of evidence approach to the identification of substances that may cause harm. They found it disingenuous that science must prove with 100% certainty that an exposure will result in an adverse health effect before taking precautionary action. They concluded, “. . . the focus must be on preventing the generation of persistent toxic substances in the first place, rather than trying to control their use, release, and disposal after they are produced.” They endorsed the precautionary principle that, with evidence of threats of significant harm, even in the face of scientific uncertainty, precautionary action should be taken to protect public health and the environment. However, Gordon Durnil, former chair of the IJC, described the response strategy of industry lobbyists as the three Ds—deny, divert, delay. Although we can do little about genetic contributions to many of these developmental disorders, we have enormous opportunities to mitigate environmental factors. 
 
Sufficient evidence has been accumulated to permit better understanding of the hazards of exposure to neurotoxic chemicals. Clearly, more comprehensive pre- and postmarket neurodevelopmental testing of chemicals to which humans and wildlife are likely to be exposed is essential. Residual uncertainties, however, cannot be an excuse for avoiding precautionary action when available evidence establishes the plausibility of harm.
