Since I have not written any posts so far specifically on homeopathic remedies, I thought it would be fun to share something about a group of remedies I often use in my clinic: the mother milk remedies. I use these remedies especially a lot for nursing mom's and their babies, but the use of these remedies ranges a lot further. Recurring tonsillitis, allergies, skin complaints, and the (emotional) effects of bullying & abuse are just a few conditions that patients have been helped with through the milk remedies. In this blog post: When are milk remedies indicated? Some examples of different milk remedies Two acute milk remedies you can use at home for nursing problems or for glandular inflammations (eg tonsillitis)
My dad is an engineer... and he sure has passed his genes on to me! I like to measure measure measure.

In my opinion ovulation tests are really useful when charting your cycle. The thing is that many fancy (digital) ovulation tests are pretty expensive to use cycle after cycle. I am therefore a big fan of the simple dipstick LH tests with nothing more than a test line and control line. So in this post: … Continue reading How to use the cheaper option ovulation tests: LH strips
So you are ready to start charting but as you tell your fertility savvy friend that you'll just use the good old thermometer in your medicine cabinet, she looks at you with horror. Of cooourse you should not be using that silly thing, you need a “BBT” thermometer. You laugh, hide your confusion, and say “I was just kidding silly”.

The last time Lisa conceived was right after being shocked by the news of her brother suddenly passing. As if that was not painful enough, that very pregnancy – which had taken a long time to happen in the first place – turned out to be ectopic. She lost a fallopian tube during the surgery which sent her into early menopause. The hope for another pregnancy seemed lost. Little did she expect that within two months of homeopathic treatment her flushes would go and she would fall pregnant!

If you are more interested in a blog-style post on the emotional root of PCOS, please check out this popular … Continue reading A PCOS case: Thuja & Phosphorus
Baby Finn's fevers wouldn't respond to anything and get him into hospital time after time. That is.. until I figured out steroids were culprit of both Finn's condition and momma Nancy's excruciating periods. A homeopathic detox cured them within weeks.
Faye was told that menopause had set in but she didn't want to go on hormone replacement therapy. Little did she know that homeopathy would not just stop her hot flushes, but would restore her fertility completely!
