Homeopathy Cancer Prevention From Japanese Nuclear Plant Meltdown

Posted by Sanjib Sarkar on Tue, Apr 05, 2011 @ 05:46 PM

Tags: radium bromatum

Radium Bromatum is the homeopathic potency for the cancer fighting radium.   This medicine given is suppose to offer some low level protection in the case of radiation poisoning.  There is no proof that this homeopathic medicine offers any protection from radiation. 

Many people from California having been purchasing this remedy.  They fear that the radiation may come to them.  However, these fears are unfounded.  Radiation levels from the Japanese nuclear meltdown will not be in high enough levels to cause any harm to any US states including Hawaii.  The radiation would have to travel through the Pacific ocean.  Contaminated food or drinks would be the main danger from radiation.  Many of the foods that were grown near the nuclear plant showed high levels of radiation.  All the foods that were tested on the Geiger counter show levels of radiation that were unsafe for consumption.

Us had strict laws regarding food from Japan.  Every food is tested and inspected to make sure that the food is safe.  US imports very little food from Japan so it should not be a big worry either.  Radioactive water was found in Japan.  Japan has a new containment ship to help move all of the water that is contaminated out of the ocean. 

In conclusion, homeopathy radium bromatum will not be needed if you live in California.  You are safe where you are.

The homeopathic remedy Sanguinaria Canadensis is made from the Blood Root plant. The fresh root is used. Native Americans took bloodroot to induce therapeutic vomiting, and used the orange-colored juice of the root as a body paint and clothing dye.

People who respond best to Sanguinaria are confused and full of dread, and feel very weak and stupid. Despite feeling heavy, languid, and drowsy, they cannot sleep at night and the slightest noise wakes them up. An uncomfortable sensation of prickling warmth sometimes spreads over the whole body.

The classic symptom picture for this remedy is irritation of the mucous membranes, particularly those of the respiratory system. Sanguinaria may be given for hay fever accompanied by great sensitivity to grass, flowers, and scents. Other conditions that are typically associated with Sanguinaria include asthma with catarrh and raw, burning membranes.

This herb contains a powerful alkaloid called sanguinarin, which can cause nausea and vomiting, and burning pains in the stomach. It is fatal in large doses. The burning quality of the plant is of most significance in the homeopathic remedy. Sanguinaria is used for respiratory problems, such as asthma, bronchitis, inflammation of the pharynx (which is between the tonsils and the larynx), and nasal or laryngeal polyps. The first symptoms include dryness, rawness, and burning in the mucous membranes, and later phlegm. The remedy is also given for indigestion, coughs that are typically dry and spasmodic, for example, after whooping cough or flu, and hay fever with burning and dryness in the nose and throat. A key symptom of all these ailments is a burning chest pain that extends to the right shoulder; it may make it difficult to raise the arm.
Sanguinaria is also used for rheumatism in the right shoulder, menopausal hot flashes, and throbbing headaches and migraines that settle over the right eye.

hekla lava

According to some texts, Hecla or Hekla is the Icelandic word for ‘cloak’, and comes from the German word ‘hexe’, which means ‘witch’. Mount Hekla is 1491 m high located in the south western part of Iceland about 70 miles (110 km) south east of Reykjavik and 35 miles (55 km) inland from the southern coastline. It is Iceland’s most notorious volcano, sometimes referred to by the natives as the Gate or even Gates of Hell. It is regarded by some as a stratovolcano, but others argue that it more closely resembles Hawaiian shield volcanoes. It is one of the world’s most active volcanoes and has terrified the inhabitants of Iceland since it was settled by Ingolfur Arnarson.  Hekla' s ash is not really ash at all, but tephra, “ a lightweight material containing silica, like a very small grain of sand containing bubble cavities which have dissolved acidic salts attached to the surface as a precipitation”. This tephra is known to have great healing properties.

Hekla Lava provides healing and relief for bone problems. It is a remarkable remedy for Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Spurs. Hekla Lava also provides relief for heel pain, neuralgia, toothache, jaw pain and other nerve pain. Hekla Lava should be part of your health program for osteopenia, osteoporosis. Kathryn Jones, Health Counselor, suggests Calcarea Phos and Hekla Lava be used together to strengthen bones and improve bone density. Hekla Lava acts upon the jaw and is an important remedy for dental sensitivity, gum abscess, and tooth decay. Hekla Lava is also used to relieve abscess with facial swelling. Hekla Lava lessens swollen glands. Hekla Lava is listed as a remedy for problems with nasal polyps; ulceration of nasal bones; tumors; necrosis and sinus problems after mastoid operation. This remedy works equally well on humans and animals for bone spurs. Hecla lava is considered a small remedy in the Materia Medica. Never the less it is a deep active remedy... of course, it comes from deep inside the Earth!

What is Lachesis Mutus?

Lachesis mutus is a homeopathic remedy that affects the blood and central nervous system. It is made from a very dilute solution of the poisonous venom of the bushmaster snake. The most important effect of Lachesis mutus is its blood-thinning, or anti-coagulant, function. This action enhances blood flow and facilitates the healing process by hastening the removal of toxins from the blood.

Benefits

Lachesis mutus is used as a homeopathic treatment for many bleeding disorders--including rectal bleeding, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, prolonged menstrual periods--and to relieve depression, palpitations, migraines and other throbbing headaches, tonsillitis, anal fissures, hemorrhoids, poor circulation, cold extremities, a swollen or inflamed tongue, and all types of skin ulcers and wounds. It is also sometimes used to ease menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, painful ovaries, aches, headache, anxiety, mood swings, nervous tension, cramps and irritability.

 The Remedy

The remedy is prepared by using the fresh venom from the bushmaster snake that goes through extensive series of dilutions before it is safe to use. Since it needs to be diluted numerous times, it is much safer to purchase a commercial preparation that has already been diluted. Be extremely cautious and make sure you find a reputable source before you purchase the remedy.

Blood Thinning Disorders

One of the most used effects of Lachesis Mutus is its blood thinning abilities. This improves blood flow and facilitates the healing process by speeding up the removal of toxins from the blood. This makes it a good choice for many blood disorders. Your homeopath will need to know if your symptoms are affected by cold or hot beverages, walking in the fresh air, changes in the climate, waking up or being touched before they can prescribe Lachesis Mutus for your condition.

Google Instant Search on Homeopathy

Posted by Sanjib Sarkar on Mon, Feb 07, 2011 @ 05:17 PM

Tags: homeopathy google search

This article is going to discuss google instant search with Homeopathy terms.  Google has been using instant search to help users fill the queries that they were trying to type.  An example would be if you typed Chocolate Ice.  The instant search would redirect you to Chocolate Ice Cream. 

The test is to see where homeopathy directs you to.  I tried a few samples with the term homeopathy.  The results were fascinating.  I would type homeopat, the instant results would show homeopathy, homeopathic medicine, homeopathic remedies and homeopathic doctors Charlotte, NC.  The last term show how Google is using the instant search to make search terms more local.  My search was based in Charlotte, NC.  

The next search term I tried was homeopathy works.  Google instant search gave me the follow terms.  Homeopathy works on animals, how homeopathy works, how homeopathy works, it does not and proof that homeopathy works.  Google sees many people using homeopathy for animals so it brings that instant result first.  It also show quite a skeptic people search on homeopathy so it shows an instant search of homeopathy not working.  

The final instant search I tried was with the term homeopathic re.  This result showed homeopathic remedies, homeopathic remedies for yeast infection, homeopathic remedies for dogs and homeopathic remedies for anxiety.  According to instant search, many people use homeopathic remedies for yeast infection, pets and anxiety.  The previous search results also implies quite a bit of pet care with homeopathy. 

Google instant search gives us some interesting results with homeopathy.  However, I really never used it.  I never clicked on the instant search to finish my query.  I am not sure if most people use the instant search or not.  The results for the instant search are definitely interesting.

Gelsemium Sempervirens: The Poisonous Plant That Heals

gelsemium sempervirens

Gelsemium Sempervirens is native to warm temperate and tropical America from Guatemala north to the southeastern United States. It has a number of common names including yellow jessamine or jasmine, evening trumpetflower, and woodbine. Yellow jessamine came into regular use from the middle of the 19th century chiefly as a treatment for nervous disorders such as sciatica and neuralgia.

In its homeopathic form, gelsemium is prepared from the fresh root, which is chopped, soaked in alcohol, strained, and diluted to the desired, highly dilute potencies. Homeopathic physicians prescribe dilute solutions of gelsemium for many type of ailments. Homeopathic uses for gelsemium mainly affects the brain and spinal cord, the motor nerves, muscles, eyelids, and mucous membranes. Gelsemium alleviates  headaches that intensify with movement or bright light and feel as if there is a tight band around the head; a sore scalp due to nerve inflammation; muscle pain associated with fever, nervous disorders, uterine pain and painful menstruation, achy right-eye pain, a sore throat with red tonsils, difficulty swallowing and earache and summer colds. It is given for feverish symptoms, such as a sweaty, flushed face, an unpleasant taste in the mouth, a furred, trembling tongue, twitching muscles that feel cold and tingly and chills with waves of heat along the spine. Gelsemium is also used for fears, such as surgery or going to the dentist, and fear after a shock. All are accompanied by trembling. Overexcitement that causes the heart to miss a beat, drowsiness, and insomnia are also helped by Gelsemium. At times the remedy has been given to strengthen courage on the battlefield, and it is often used for phobias, exam nerves, stage fright, and other anticipatory terrors, which cause trembling, weakness, diarrhea, and frequent urination.  In addition, the remedy can be given for hay fever if accompanied by these symptoms.

The Gelsemium plant is toxic.  All parts of this plant contain the toxic strychnine-related alkaloids gelsemine and gelseminine and should not be consumed. Children, mistaking this flower for honeysuckle, have been poisoned by sucking the nectar from the flower.  Homeopathic gelsemium is safe for consumption because it is highly diluted.
