Homeopathic medicine is all natural
I have found that Homeopathic Magnesium phosphate generally known as Mag phos has eased my asthma remarkably.
Mag phos is a homeopathic remedy made from Magnesium. A homeopathic remedy is made very scientifically. There are different strengths or potencies for each remedy.
Different strengths of Homeopathy medicines
6x strength or potency is the lowest generally accepted potency which is available to the general public in Health food stores in Australia.
In Australia higher potencies or strengths need to be dispensed by a homeopath. In some other countries these are more readily available.
Each higher potency actually has less of the original magnesium in it. By the time it gets to 12x potency there is actually nothing of the original substance in the remedy. Only the energy of the original substance is still held in the pillule or liquid. The little pills are called pillules.
As the potency gets stronger or higher, the energy contained in the pillules gets stronger or more refined. A homeopath is guided by his/her study to know which potency is best for each situation.
Annie's Asthma symptoms helped by Mag phos
Chest very wheezy, difficult breathing, worse breathing out, better for warm air, worse for cold air and wind. Breathing difficult when walking, worse going up an incline, worse fast walking, worse exercise, worse talking.
Remember to be guided by your health care professional. Asthma must be treated by a doctor as it can be serious. Complementary medicines are complementary.

Major benefits of Magnesium
Migraines are not just a bad headache.
More about Magnesium
I have written about magnesium helping asthma and leg cramps. Well this great mineral Magnesium can also help headaches and migraines.
Dr Alexander Mauskop MD who is director of the New York Headache Centre and Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology tells us that magnesium is also great for headaches of all varieties and especially for those hard to control migraines.
Migraines are SEVERE headaches that come with other symptoms. These symptoms vary from person to person but there is a group of common symptoms.
Dr Mauskop suggests 300-400mg daily of magnesium. This can sometimes help other medications to work better.
Many people in our society are lacking in enough magnesium. There are many good reasons to supplement our diet.

Comfrey is good for muscular aches and pains and the skin
The comfrey herb has been used for centuries by people to improve their health.
Comfrey is also called Knitbone because it has proven its worth in helping bones to heal more quickly. This has also been proven scientifically. Science just loves to prove that nature is right.
What Comfrey is used for
Comfrey has been used for many different ailments as it helps to lessen inflammation and stimulates cell growth and repair. It is great for arthritis, sprains, varicose ulcers, burns and acne. It has also been used for rheumatism, neuralgias, varicose veins, muscular aches and pains, pulled tendons and skin conditions.
In a placebo controlled study it was found to reduce back pain when used as a cream and rubbed into the area.
Vitamins and Minerals
Comfrey is full of vitamins and minerals. I am all in favour of getting enough minerals into our body as our body uses these to build on. Minerals are very important to our health.
Comfrey contains Vitamin A, lots of B vitamins and vitamins C & E.
The major minerals contained in comfrey are calcium, phosphorus, potassium, chromium, cobalt and copper. There are smaller amounts of many other minerals too.
It is recommended these days that comfrey not be taken internally. Do be careful with it if you have anything wrong with your liver.
Please use this No Smoking sign
Smoking around Hospitals
Recently I went to visit at the hospital. Right outside the Respiratory unit (admittedly on the street but the Unit was just inside the doors) stood a man smoking.
On other occasions I have visited the hospital and had to walk past people standing smoking or worse still, through a group of people who were smoking.
Some of these people were patients and others hospital workers.
Now there is one thing that makes me cough and wheeze and that is smoke.
Why should I be subjected to this outside a hospital?
I am calling for smoke free zones not only in hospitals but within a certain distance around hospitals or the doors of hospitals.
I am also calling for enforcement of this.
'We tried' is just not good enough!
Please use this sign
My proposal is that some people will take this sign, have it made up and erected around all doorways in public places including hospitals and schools. People tend to obey signs. Will they obey this sign?
Please let me know if you have any success with this.
Alogoyne flower essence eases grief
Use Flower Essences for Support
When we reach hard times in our lives we need extra support. It is good to have something that we can carry with us at all times to give us a helping hand and help us carry on through tough situations.
One such tough situation that many of us have to deal with these days is the prospect of our parents in a Nursing Home.
This can be a very emotional time for both our parents and ourselves. Often our parent does not want to be there and lets us know very strongly. Often we do not want our parent to be there. We may recognize that our parent needs help, but with the difficulty of getting into a nursing home, we have no choice of where they are placed and may be unhappy about the situation.
You may think that grieving is for when a parent has died. But we can find ourselves grieving to see our parent in anguish or pain. When this pain is physical something can be done to help them. When the pain is mental or emotional, not so much can be done to help them. This is where flower essences can help. They can help both you and your parent.
Remember flower essences are safe to use and so can be used with whatever medication a person may be taking.
Alzheimer's Disease where everything in your life is a blur
What can we do for Patients with Alzheimer's Disease?
We are constantly being told that there is nothing that can be done for anyone with Alzheimer's Disease. When you hear this on the television or the radio, you listen, blink & turn the channel. But the the estimated 18,000,000 people and their loved ones who have to deal with this illness every day of their lives, Alzheimer's Disease in no turning the channel matter. It is there to stay.
Looking to the future, our health sytems in the Western world see a time when they will be overwhelmed with an aging population with Alzheimer's Disease.
Doctors and researchers worldwide are searching for the cause and cure for this nasty disease.
If you have not had any experience with this disease, let me tell you it is insidious. I have watched it progress in someone for over 30 years where it came to its inevitable conclusion. What is its inevitable conclusion? Death. Yes, we all have to die, but no-one wishes to die from this debilitating, wasting, mind numbing disease.
The Director of the Nuclear Medicine Department at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, recently announced that beta-amyloids are present in all patients with Alzheimer's Disease (AD).
This protein amyloid accumulates as a plaque between nerve cells in the brain - it builds up on the walls of the arteries of the brain and this increases the risk of stroke and Dementia.
Some doctors in the UK have been looking at a connection between the herpes simplex viruses and AD.
The lauric acid and capric acid in coconut oil kills herpes viruses. I have written before about the benefits some people are having from taking coconut oil. It is certainly worth adding to your diet.
Use Arnica Cream for bruising & sports injuries too
Arnica has been known to be a healing herb for centuries.
Cream for Aches and Pains
As a cream, Arnica is primarily used to treat sprains and strains and muscular aches and soreness. It also works marvellously to disperse bruising.
Use Arnica on sore muscles caused by working, lifting or from sport.
Arnica Cream for Inflammation
The active ingredients in Arnica cream promote tissue healing, reduce swelling, and inflammation, and ease pain. It's also frequently used to soothe pains in the joints related to arthritis and to ease tired, sore, overworked muscles.
Arnica has anti-inflammatory properties and is a great pain reliever.
Arnica dissolves the impurities and stickiness in the blood, thus dissolving any areas of blockage around injuries.
Arnica cream can be used for
sore back pain
lower back pain
inflammation of arthritic joints
joint swelling due to injuries, over exertion or arthritis
Arnica is safe for children, adults, seniors and sports people. It is increasing used after accidents and surgery including orthopedic and plastic surgery. Arnica relieves inflammation and bruising and speeds recovery.
DO NOT use Arnica on open wounds or broken skin.
DO NOT take Arnica cream internally.
Homeopathic Arnica is safe to take internally as it has been greatly diluted.
Arnica has had wide recognition and has been regulated as a drug by the FDA (US) since 1938 and has had no reported drug interactions.
Anecdote about Arnica
My Mum had a bad fall when she was in a Nursing home. She honestly looked like a Panda bear. She was covered in bruises all over her face, arms and body. I gave her homeopathic Arnica and her bruising healed in a remarkably short time, much to the amazement of the nursing staff. Arnica cream would have eased the bruising too only would have been more awkward in her situation and the extensive area of bruising.

Gluten Free and Full of Antioxidants
A great way to start the day
If you want to start your day with lots of antioxidants to fight off all the free radicals we accumulate through the day then this is the place to start.
Today I am collating some posts for you. Over a couple of weeks I wrote about the goodness of antioxidants and what they do for us. I wrote about the goodness of dark coloured fruit and vegetables. I also shared about the goodness of quinoa (pronounced keen-wah). Then I used all these ingredients together to make a lovely Gluten Free Quinoa Porridge.
Because the posts were mixed in other posts, I thought I might just bring them all together for you. Here goes.

Power lines are dangerous to be near. They emit EMR
Electro Magnetic Radiation is not a good things to be around.
Recently I talked about not being able to see things but this does not make them not exist. I mentioned the wind that we cannot see yet we know it exists.
We cannot see electricity yet we know it exists. We cannot see electro magnetic radiation yet we know it exists.
Electro magnetic radiation or EMR for short is emitted from many electrical things for example
electricity meter box in your house
transformer boxes in electrical equipment eg in the power cord of your laptop
and the list goes on
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
If you have CFS, ME, CFIDS or any related illness, be extra careful around electrical equipment. Your body is sensitive and can be further exhausted by the radiation of everyday electrical equipment.
For Your Safety
Stay away from these things as much as possible. The further you are from them the more their energy dissipates.
When your microwave is going, EMR is emitted from it to a range of about one metre.
I have used a special meter to check all the electrical equipment in our house.
You can read more about it in my book Allergies and Chronic Fatigue A Natural Approach.
Living near power lines is not good for you. I hope for your sake that you do not live near lines like you see in the picture.
Child Care Centres
When choosing a Child Care Centre for your child, do not choose one directly beneath large powerlines. I have seen these centres built there. Do you really want your delicate little child being subjected to radiation for 8 or 10 hours a day? Would you like to be subjected to radiation for this time each day?
Crystal Healing Helps Leg Cramps
For many years, more than I like to remember, I suffered greatly from leg cramps during the night. Sometimes when I had a very bad cramp I was not able to walk properly for up to 3 days afterwards. If you suffer from leg cramps you will know the incredible pain they bring with them.
Then I learned crystal healing. I found such benefit from it that I taught my husband too.
Sharing the Healing
Now I had an ulterior motive to teach him - I wanted him to do the crystal healing on me when I had these cramps because when I had the cramps I was in so much pain that I could not do the healing on myself. I still had the cramps just as badly but after using the crystals for the healing, the next morning I could walk as normal as soon as my feet touched the ground.
Gradually, gradually, my body strengthened and, along with the crystals and many other types of healing and natural remedies, the cramps went away for good.
