Beautiful new Grandson born on 1.10.2013 weighing 8lb 9oz via a C Section after 3 days of labour (phew!) and lovely big baby suffered a bit of acid reflux whilst feeding, which may have been the trauma of the C section and all the medication given during an epidural which preceded the C section, and additionally, it may also have been a family susceptibility. After giving a milk remedy the little darling seemed calmer and more comfortable and the feeding smoother – the bonding was reaffirmed. Overall a fantastic result to see them settling into a flow and that precious union of Mother and child, which is what its all about really……..

I gave one of my cats who was suffering from mild Alopecia some Staphisagria followed by Thallium Acetas 30 which has a trophic action on hair follicles and helps the regeneration of the hair follicles, provided the follicles have not been destroyed. This treatment improved things no end, and then gave some Follliculinum one of the ovarian hormone remedies which seemed to finish the job off and her coat is once more glossy and full. I did some research and found this information in my George Macleod book on CATS. Good old George’s book, together with the Christopher Day Book “The Homoeopathic Treatment of Small Animals” usually come up trumps covering problems that arise for my animals. The issue may have been around abandonment because I took a short break in the summer and whilst they were beautifully cared for by my neighbour who is a great animal lover and together with one of her sons fed them and gave them great good care and attention, nevertheless, it would have been stressful because I was not there as normal. There were subtle relationship issues between her and her sister too, thus an imbalance in their relationship which grew from my cat with the Alopecia problem’s imbalance in the first place.

3.1.2014 More recently, I have treated a horse suffering from Cushings disease and other problems, including a splintered bone in a hind leg for which I have recommended some Symphytum (Knit Bone) to stimulate bone growth and I am waiting with great interest to hear what changes the daily, four week package brings.

6.1.2014 Today the first New Year children’s clinic at The Pegasus Centre in Wellington where we had several children who came to clinic with a variety of problems from chesty cough’s, and throat problems to emotional difficulties following a shock and “New Term” nerves. The clinic runs monthly for children of all ages and for many varied and different complaints. It has been running for the past 15 years and we have seen some very interesting and encouraging results from the work not least of which is due to the commitment of the parents who want to follow a gentle and non toxic approach to help their children rebalance and heal.

More to follow! Happy New Year Everyone! This is a good year for healing changes…………….
