First Aid for Coughs

Let’s Avoid Antibiotics with First Aid for Coughs!

I’ve been meaning to add a first aid page with a coughs chart but have been too busy to do so and now, why reinvent the wheel?  My colleague Paula Webb has written one that it unsurpassable so I’m going to link to it instead so you can find all the info you need when you come to my first aid section.  Search out hers too! It is pretty great.

If you are not sure whether you should attempt to treat this cough yourself check this post:  Can I Treat It Myself?
Happy prescribing!

Your Immune System’s Warfare Tactics

I’m actually considering calling this post “Killing Me Softly”.  It’s principally about steroid side effects, but I’m not drawing attention to just these drugs.

Your Immune System’s Warfare Tactics.

I visualize our immune system like a series of defensive concentric walls set up around a citadel:

The Citadel:
Our immune system will prioritize the protection of our mind and brain [‘the citadel’] above all else.  Throughout human history we’d die rapidly without our sanity to assist us in recognizing danger, keeping safe and finding the resources we need to survive.

The City Walls:
Next, our immune system prioritizes the protection of the singular organs.  We don’t have a spare heart or liver etc.

After this, we are down to the areas of the body or double organs that can be compromised to some extent and for some time without instant death. We can limp along with a part of these systems working, or one of these duplicated organs.

Penultimately, we are down to the joints & muscles.  Death will come slower [nowadays not really at all] with a joint or muscular problem.  It has to get pretty severe.

Finally, A skin problem like eczema or mucous membrane problem isn’t really going to impede your survival much at all [survival, not comfort is your body’s priority!]  You may succumb to infection but it is likely your immune system is pretty strong if you can keep your ill health at the skin level and protect the deeper organs and inner citadel.  You’ll burn a fever and fight an infection.


Your body is always using its UTMOST resources to push the imbalance out to the furthest point from the inner citadel.  As it is weakened, the defenses fall and the immune system is forced to allow more disorder to enter the higher organs and the mental and emotional spheres.


Steroid Side Effects:
Many Medicines Help You Lose the Fight.

Read the side effects of steroid meds [indeed any meds].  You’ll get some idea of the kinds of conditions you can lapse into.
Your predispositions dictate what you’ll get from that list of side effects.
That’s why a drug doesn’t always cause the same problem in everyone.

People have different predispositions to problems in different systems and organs when their symptoms are suppressed with steroids. Your family medical history can give you hints as to what to expect, and if you have a family predisposition to mental health problems we know that your walls tumble fast.

Side effects are signs you are losing the fight.  Sometimes they last and sometimes you are strong enough to detox and throw them off.

Let me tell you a story …


Maybe you got an eczema eruption at 2 months like the boy I talk about in this case [shortly after vaccinations is the most common time]. You use some steroid creams and some more vaccinations are scheduled and ear infections or tonsillitis start.   You continue your hydrocortisone cream, have a few courses of antibiotics and gradually your eczema improves.

Now you see that your colds start to involve some sinus or chest troubles.  Maybe bronchitis troubles you some [more antibiotics] and you’ve got some tenacious catarrh.  You get some ear tubes fitted.  You are also diagnosed with asthma [you’ve likely reached about age 5 by now, depends on how quickly your walls fall].  [Very common pattern in vaccinated children!]

Now you have increasingly unmanageable asthma [but your eczema is ‘cured’ or you have ‘grown out of it’].  It can get impossibly hard for people to manage this level of asthma without steroids [never withdraw them at this stage unless your doctor advises it] … so you get more steroids [inhaled and/or syrup].  You still get infections on your chest and need more antibiotics.
Gradually, with the steroids and antibiotics, your infections stop. You ‘grew out of them’.

If you successfully control asthma with these steroid meds you’ll likely begin to develop behaviour problems like aggression and/or anxiety.  Progressively, with continued steroid treatment, you may descend into ADD, ADHD, ASD and even levels of psychosis [psychosis is one of the side effects noted with steroid meds]. Gradually you’ve been gathering little hints of these mental health problems, and now you are truly at diagnosis point.  The likelihood is you are otherwise pretty ‘well’ nowadays. You no longer get repeat infections and you’ve not had a fever for some time, maybe years since you were 5 or 6.
School is getting pretty tough and you are gonna need your diagnosis to get the support you need.

When a homeopath listens to your history and hears these events in order, they can track the stages at which your immune system lost stages of the battle and the crucial events that breached your defenses.    This is my first job when I meet you, to track these events and stages and give you an assessment of your level of health and a prognosis for recovery.

When we treat these mental health problems with homeopathy asthma resurfaces. That’s proof that it was never ‘cured’ or ‘grown out of’.  It was just SUPERSEDED by a deeper illness.  Allopathic medicine generally works this way, by replacing one disease with a deeper disease.

The modern child’s development and life outcomes are frequently severely compromised by these medical interventions.

Homeopathy can offer a fairly rapid cure for eczema in the first place.
Curing the results of suppression is a long-term undertaking.

Homeopathy needs to be integrated into general medical practice if we are not going to see the battle lost in most people’s lives.  Each generation is being born with more predispositions and weaker immunity.
I think we are looking at the health equivalent of ‘Peak Oil’ or global warming.

It’s unlikely homeopathy will be integrated, in part because none of us understand how it works [that doesn’t stop the medical folk!] and it is a big threat to Big Pharma’s shareholders.
Your personal option is to opt out of the conventional health system as far as you can.  Keep your family healthy and improve their health with homeopathic treatment.  Make it a priority.

Would you seriously consider messing with antibiotics if you knew this?

“10 Things You Need To Know About Your Microbiome”

in this article, Dr. Raphael Kellman spells it out:

“Humans evolved in a symbiotic relationship with the microbiome, which is why our bodies depend on our bacteria for so many basic biological processes. Friendly bacteria digest our food, govern our appetite, control our metabolism, orchestrate our immune system, influence our mood, promote mental sharpness, determine heart health, support bone development, produce crucial vitamins and other nutrients, manufacture natural antibiotics, and even help to determine our genetic expression!”  link [10 Things You need to Know about your Microbiome]

Antibiotics are a wide-ranging & unpredictable assault on your health:

“What choice do I have?”

It’s quite simple.  Homeopathy has been effectively treating infections for 200 years, without side effects, without creating imbalances that have wide ranging ramifications.

Homeopathy matched the effectiveness of  conventional treatment for ear infection in this study from 8 countries, without producing side effects.

If you have a child prone to ear infections, tonsillitis, etc, contact me for rapid, safe treatment.

 What’s more, it is inevitable that antibiotics will run out: 


“With every attempt to kill them, some bacteria inevitably escape, unscathed, either because they managed to develop the ability to neutralize or incapacitate the antibiotic before it could take effect, or by mutating their genetic material. This resistance is then passed on to successive generations, sometimes even between different species of bacteria. In the worst case scenario this can lead to multi-resistant strains such as the dreaded and often untreatable methicillin–resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) which, previously seen only in hospital settings, has now spread into the wider community.” link

Margaret Chan, director general of the WHO, warns that bacteria are starting to become so resistant to common antibiotics that it could bring about “the end of modern medicine as we know it.”  Every antibiotic ever developed is at risk of becoming useless, making once-routine operations impossible.  This would include many of the breakthrough drugs developed to treat tuberculosis, malaria, bacterial infections and HIV/AIDS, as well as simple treatments for cuts. link


How homeopathy works:

recovery after surgery

Recovery After Surgery

Scheduled surgery can be unavoidable, even for people with additional health problems and risk factors, like my 3 year old patient Ida, now in recovery after surgery for a double hernia.
Advancements in surgery mean that more can be done with key hole techniques and the strain on small children and frail adults is reduced in a wonderful way. However, Ida has a shunt that empties close to where keyhole surgery would have to be done, so she didn’t have this option.

As a homeopath I’m asked by patients and their families to help with recovery after surgery.    If you’d like support with recovery after surgery, contact me on 07544812470 in the UK.  Support can be offered worldwide via skype.   Meanwhile, read Ida’s story below:

Yesterday, I was on call for Ida, after she came out of surgery and over night.
She has additional challenges:

  • She was born with an encephalocele (part of her brain formed outside of her skull.)
  • She has hydrocephalus (water accumulates in her brain).
  • She has a shunt to drain fluid from her brain, which has to be carefully monitored for blockage and/or infection.
  • She suffers with epilepsy, which can sometimes be severe.
  • She has a tendency to seizures when her temperature rises.

She is joyous each time we skype consult and I’ve witnessed her learning to walk and talk, and even learning to pronounce my name “Sally!” (Not a small fete!) … whilst treating her for whooping cough and fevers, worms and her general health problems.
She is a mini miracle & is hitting mile stones her parents were warned she'd likely never hit. She is continuing to defy all the odds. Click To Tweet
Read on to find out how we helped her recovery after surgery.


Homeopathy for Ida’s recovery after surgery

The Recovery After Surgery Kit:

The following are useful points to remember:

  • Before surgery
  1. Arnica shouldn’t be used before surgery.  It clears bruising because it thins the blood.  During surgery it is best to not have thinned blood.
  2. I recommended aconite or rescue remedy for Ida’s family, to help with nerves and fear about the surgery.  (If the patient is fearful both are useful too).
  3. We ensured they had a Recovery After Surgery kit.  (Listed below).
  • After surgery
  1. Arnica can be used to clear bruising faster after surgery … but don’t overdo it.  Use 30c to 200c over the next few days 3 times max during the day.
  2. Mag phos is a good pain killer after surgery.  Ida had repeat doses in water in a 200c potency once her epidural wore off.  Be sure you have your homeopath available for close communication and on call for night time queries if you are using homeopathy for pain after surgery.
  3. In their kit her parents also had hypericum: good for pain, particularly in damage to nerve rich areas … and very important for speeding up healing.
  4. Staphysagria: is for pain after surgery and can be useful for immediate pain relief, but should particularly be kept in mind if the incision scars continue to hurt after healing and if the patient feels invaded by the procedure.
  5. Calendula: is great insurance against infection and indispensable in healing hot, red inflammation after surgery.  I saw it work miracles in a patient’s knee-replacement recently!  Her swollen knee halved in size and the redness and heat were gone over night.
  6. Opium: this is a remedy we have in the kit to deal with the after effects of anaesthesia if there are any.  We’ve not had to use it for Ida so far but will have it in reserve.

Today she is home.  She has had a dose of calpol this morning, but otherwise her pain relief has been managed with mag phos.  She’s just had a dose of both hypericum and calendula 200c today (spaced 1 hour apart) as insurance against infection and to speed healing.

I saw a picture of her grinning out of a kiddy car in her garden today.  Pretty impressive recovery!
