It has been a particulary bad flu season this year. If you are suffering even the residual effects of the flu, please come by and see me. There are several flu medicines in homeopathy and these can be put to good use to clear up symptoms. Have your blood checked regularly with your family doctor to make sure you are ok re Thyroid, anemia and cholesterol problems. These can go undetected unless we get regular check-ups. If any of these conditions are out of range, please contact me for treatment. Homeopathy is very good for organ drainage including liver, endocrine glands and other areas such as sinus problems, weight problems etc. If you wonder if homeopathy can help with your health problems, give me a call and we can discuss options.

Welcome to the New Year with the deep breath of new beginnings. So let's all dive in with optimism for the best year we can have. If you need help with health or mental/emotional issues, I am here to assist. Life will go on without us so if you are in it, give it your best. When the doldrums hit as they inevitably will, do something to pamper yourself. Guilt free give back for all our bodies and minds deal with. Read good books, listen to music, eat wholesome foods, sleep as much as you need and let your body do the rest. We forget how good it is at healing itself. All we need to help it out are the basics, good choices and homeopathy.

For all of the mothers out there who are trying to give their children natural medicines wherever possible, I have just the book to make that easier....Homeopathy: A Manual For Mothers. It is on my website and is the perfect way to upgrade your knowledge of what and when to use in case of acute, temporary problems in your child. For the chronic problems, best to see a qualified homeopath, but I know several moms who do well on their own for those sudden things that come up this time of year. Again, a caution to well-meaning moms, if you don't have luck after a few doses of remedies, please bring your little ones by my office. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year from my new office. Much gratitude for your patronage over the years.

Whenever homeopaths are treating acute illnesses such as colds/flu, ear infections, sore throats etc, they will need to differentiate specifics as to all symptoms being experienced including mental/emotional, concomitant symptoms such as diarrhea with a sore throat, lack of or increase in thirst etc. These details while a bit tedious are necessary to find just the right medication for each individual patient. Even in colds etc, we tend to be different. Some hate the heat, some love it; some are fidgety, others lethargic. Homeopaths treat all of these ailments, so the next time you are ill, try this form of treatment before resorting to automatic taking of antibiotics. Our guts are suffering from the overuse of these meds. Homeopathy works quickly, often within one to three days for improvements. No need to keep taking meds for weeks. Try this, you will be pleased.

Whenever someone is being treated with homeopathic medicines, there may be a temporary sign of the body releasing something. For example, a skin rash, a sore throat, diarrhea. It is important to know that these symptoms are very temporary and never should be treated with antibiotics from your doctor. Simply inform the homeopath treating you that this has occurred and you will be advised how to proceed. It seems that patients sometimes think that the homeopath does not treat acute illnesses which is totally wrong. If a child develops an earache etc during treatment, contact your homeopath and you will be told to wait, stop the med, or advise you to give another complementary med to deal with it. Too many cases have been complicated by intermittent taking of antibiotics, not to mention the unnecessary disruption of gut health. Always inform your treating homeopath of anything you notice during treatment.

There are various natural ways to help with general nervousness and problems sleeping whether from overindulging or from general stress. Passiaflora and Aveena sativa are two tinctures that when taken in the evening are very calming and restorative for the general stress we are all prone to suffer from. Similarly, other tinctures can help with weight loss such as the natural iodine in fucus vesiculosis, the drainage properties of phytolacca berry and the natural weight loss properties in Garcinia. Often we can use up to four tinctures in one mixture at a time. These are usually taken anywhere from 30-50 drops in water once or twice daily. I have all of these in the clinic. It's wise to ask for help when these stresses take their toll on us, as most of us just buck up and take it. I am happy to offer these options to my clients rather than taking the addictive pills with side-effects that conventional medicine offers. Of course, backed up with whatever homeopathic medicine is indicated, and we are covering all the bases. Enjoy the summer at last!

I have noticed that some people are taking homeopathics or giving them to children daily for months or even years at a time. This is not good practice on many levels. Nothing in homeopathy is meant to be taken forever. There are spin offs of this, one being that you begin to "prove" the remedy ie develop symptoms that the remedy treats but that you have never had before. This mixes up the body and can cause long term repercussions. This form of medicine is meant to be taken only temporarily to relieve symptoms. It is not to be given as a preventative on an ongoing basis. This practice makes it more difficult for the homeopath who first has to antidote the long term effects of these meds before prescribing on the remaining symptoms. Please be careful with this practice, albeit meant with the best intentions. Visit your local homeopath for concerns and please don't experiment with these meds just to see what happens.

We homeopaths often see clients who have had no improvements using conventional medicine. There is band-aiding, there are meds for life offered or meds are given but are not helping the problem. Please keep in mind that there are other systems of medicine that might be able to help you. It is worth seeing someone who specializes in Homeopathy, Chinese Medicine etc before giving up on your particular problem. For some reason that I don't understand, each of these systems exists separately in their own bubble and there is no interchange with other systems of medicine. What wonders the world would benefit from if this were to occur?? So until we reach that stage of enlightenment where all information is shared for the good of the client, then keep in mind the other systems available for you to use. Good Luck with your health and well being.

People are often surprised when they find out that homeopathy treats mental/emotional problems like depression, grief, anger, sadness, brain fag, obsessive compulsive disorders etc. The public needs to know that this system of medicine treats physical as well as emotional states, which is why I like it to begin with, why I studied it in the first place. It is truly holistic. In one system we have the homeopath ready to treat warts, or bedwetting or depression, the medicines are there for us to choose. We need to take a good consult, including medical background, family history, past trauma, etc in order to come up with the best homeopathic medicine now. We treat the state we see first, then if during treatment, something else comes up that was in the past, we can treat that too. We follow the healing process to its conclusion, which necessitates seeing clients often once a month. So be patient, allow your body to heal in its own time. We help it along.

There are many conditions in the human body that arise out of inflammation states in the intestines. The acid in our system builds up if we indulge too much in red meat, alcohol and sweets and adding this diet to our over stressed gut lining can make us prone to general allergic conditions as a result of leaks in our guts allowing food to be absorbed in larger molecules that the body perceives as a foreign substance and sets up histamine reactions. Over time, the acid state and histamine reactions create inflammation in our lungs, our intestines, our joints and our skin. And so our body is once again signaling to us to change something. We need to use probiotics, fermented foods, homeopathic meds to heal the gut directly and specifically, eat alkaline foods such as fruits and green veggies, legumes, healthy fish and hormone free chicken etc. Google any alkaline diet for ideas to bring our bodies back to their best operating states. Even children are prone to these problems, not just older adults. So diet is key and so is homeopathy. Antacids, cortisone shots and ointments and puffers are bandaids and are not doing the job to heal us.

So begins a New Year ahead of us. If you are worried about conditions that won't go away, please try homeopathy. If you can't sleep, can't eat, can't get out of bed in the morning, try homeopathy. If you keep getting recurring colds or your children do, please try homeopathy. The beauty of this kind of treatment is that it is natural, won't hurt you and treats the most unusual symptoms. So if there are any health conditions that are persisting, come by the office and I will try my best to help. In my 18th year of practice now, I am grateful to all of the people I meet along the way who have taught me and influenced me. Remember the Wednesday drop-ins from 9-5 where children have free consults. I hope this helps those who cannot otherwise afford to see a homeopath. Happy New Year to all and best of health!

I receive a lot of calls from people who are looking for Homeopathic medicines and from others who would like to come "immediately to the office" and whom I cannot always accommodate. To address this, I will be holding an ongoing DROP IN CLINIC EVERY WEDNESDAY FROM 9-5. This will be the one day a week that I will not be seeing clients by appointment. So come by and address your concerns and pick up medicines that have been ordered by other homeopaths abroad. I hope to see you there on Wednesdays BEGINNING DECEMBER 7TH. To everyone else, I wish you a lovely healthy and heartwarming Christmas and New Years with friends and family.

When the homeopath is deciding which remedy to choose for patients, the symptoms of mind and body are taken into consideration. Then we look for a medicine that portrays the same or as close as possible to whatever symptom picture we have. This matching of portraits, the patient with the symptoms the remedy treats, is an art and science as choosing the closest match plus deciding what dose and frequency to administer can vary greatly from patient to patient. The influence of taking high doses of conventional medications also has to be taken into account. The wisest way to proceed is with caution and slowly, increasing doses as needed but constantly taking into account the vitality of the patient. It is a balancing act and requires patience and persistence until the exact balance/match is achieved. It is a beautiful thing to watch the lovely work of the remedies at their best with a qualified homeopath at the helm.

This month is for giving thanks for all our blessings and I want to thank all of my clients for allowing me to enter into their lives in treating them. It can be a self-effacing thing to sit in the company of a stranger and tell our secret thoughts. Yet, it is often in those things that we keep to ourselves that homeopaths find the key to treat at the core. The best solutions for treatment can often be found in little things like dreams, obsessive habits, fears and worries. The consults can be fairly long at times as people open up and things come to mind. So thank you all for trusting meand for allowing me to help as best I can.

I am happy to add a new service to my clinic. My daughter Joanna Biafore is a Certified Clinical Nutritionist who specializes in treating children on the Austism Spectrum incl kids with ADD and ADHD and other behavioural problems. As I have mentioned before, the gut health directly impacts behavioural problems and developmental delays in these children who all seem to have compromised digestive tracts. In the case of kids on the spectrum, I have seen noticeable and marked improvements in behaviour as a result of following the protocol and fun suggestions that Joanna can offer. Often in these cases, diet is 80­90% of the solution, along with homeopathic treatments. Joanna is also happy to see adult clients with concerns about how their diet may be impacting their health and bodily symptoms. I am excited to offer this service to all of you. Call Joanna at 647­637­8205 for an appointment.

I have seen a number of people lately with what is called a Dupuytrens contracture of the hands. This contracture is characterized by bending in of the middle and ring finger onto the palm and is very painful and difficult to straighten out the fingers. It can be caused by gripping objects too long or by typing repeatedly which of course we all do now. The best remedy in homeopathy for this problem is Causticum. I would recommend beginning at 30 ch tid and then going up to 200 ch if the former isn't strong enough. This remedy is almost a specific for this problem and I have seen it work repeatedly in the clinic. Happy Summer to all!

I am seeing good results in the clinic for improving weight loss with Garcinia tincture. Most products on the market are the herb form of this fruit. The tincture works better as all of the medicinal properties of the plant are released and are ready to be absorbed. Don't forget to include the possibility that problems with weight loss in spite of dieting and exercise may be due to other conditions such as low thyroid, insulin resistance etc. Even menopause puts its own spin on weight problems with a lot of women complaining about the added weight around the mid section. In this case, often organotherapy for the adrenal glands can help with this cortisol problem that is exacerbated with the stress of living, as well as hormonal changes. Much gratitude is sent out to all of you who grace my clinic. This is our loveliest time of year and I hope that all of you enjoy this time with your families.

With summer finally here, there are some homeopathic medicines that are good to keep on hand for sudden acute situations. While insect bites are not necessarily acute issues, some people react quite strongly to bites and so this is where Apis Mellifica comes in handy. This remedy made from bees is ideal for the inflamed and itchy bite marks. If you venture up north to cottage country for hikes etc, beware of poison ivy in the bush. If you do contact this very itchy and sore condition, take Rhus Toxicodendron which is the medicine made from poison ivy to treat this condition. That is what is meant by "treat like with like" in homeopathy. Whenever the homeopath chooses any medicine, this adage is taken into account. We select medicines that if given to healthy people, will cause symptoms very like the ones you are having. We are matching pictures. What medicines in their basic state would cause, they also cure when prepared homeopathically. Very interesting don't you think?

When you are being treated by a homeopath, returning for follow up appointments is especially necessary to review your case and make any adjustments to the meds. By all means, do not just keep purchasing the meds given to you because things will change over time. What was good for you in the beginning may change and will require new prescriptions. Not only that, we may change the dose and frequency of the present med. As each layer of symptoms is removed, new ones may emerge and need to be treated with different meds. The chronic taking of one med can cause a rebound effect and produce the same symptoms. This is called "proving" the med. Nothing in homeopathy is given forever, unlike conventional meds. The idea is to go with the body's healing signs and make changes where appropriate. So be vigilant with follow up appointments and advice re the duration of time recommended to take each prescription. The follow­up appointments are very necessary during treatment.

One of the best medicines for the flu is Gelsemium sempervirens. It is taken at the 30ch level three times daily until the symptoms abate. Gelsemium treats many things including anticipatory anxiety before an upcoming ordeal ie exams, presentations, flights etc. It helps with jet lag too. But for the flu, if you are feeling flat, needing a lot of sleep with aches and pains and chills and heat. If you have a "besotted" look on your face ie. That blah face, you know the one, the hang down look....that's a Gelsemium look. It will help the flu surprisingly quickly. If you have other symptoms such as a thick chest, persistent cough even to pneumonia, come by and see me and will assist you. Spring bring it I write, there is a lot of snow this April day, the birds are confused, as are we.
