Check this out! I found this reading the news today:
A new study by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds that most cases of the severe - and potentially fatal - diarrhea illness in children caused by Clostridium difficile infection picked up outside of the hospital occur among those who have recently taken prescribed antibiotics.
The CDC urges doctors to improve antibioticprescribing to protect the health of American children.
CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden says:
"When antibiotics are prescribed incorrectly, our children are needlessly put at risk for health problems including C. difficile infection and dangerous antibiotic resistant infections."
The study is published in the journal Pediatrics.
See you Saturday!
What's the difference between herbs and homeopathy?, one might ask...don't they originate from the same substances?
Well, there are several differences! First of all I will ask you, what makes a homeopathic remedy, "homeopathic?"
Many will say the dilutions. Yes. But please don't also forget the succussions as well. We are not just master diluters. The substance in between each dilution has been succussed an "x" amount of times.
Another major difference between herbs and homeopathic substances is that because of the amount of dilutions, there are NO side effects for homeopathic substances. However we can not say that with herbs! Please understand when taking non-homeopathic substances you risk very real side effects and most are not as safe as you think, especially for pregnancy, children, nursing, etc.
are herbs as dangerous as conventional medicine, no! Absolutely not! But they can still have effects on us! Just please read labels and do your research. If you don't understand, ask someone who does.
Hope this is helpful!

So to fill you in on my little princess...
I have her Arsenicum 30c one dose to cover my bases because with an 11month old who can only babble at this point, it's pretty hard to know where everything is coming from. So to rule out food poisoning I immediately have her a dose of Ars and some swigs of pedialyte of course to replenish electrolytes lost. Half an hour later she took her normal nap for about an hour. when she woke up her fever as 100.5! So I knew I had to give a different remedy. I found Nux Vomica came up number one when I repertorized with the program. I can show you a copy of the rubrics I used. I gave her one dose 30c. Within 30 minutes, she wanted to eat her gluten free puff cereal and drink water! I gave her one more dose since then and her temperature is back to normal, no more vomiting! nice to have her back to her regular self!
Having a baby you always have a patient to test your remedies on! Grace-Kelly woke up today not wanting to eat, drink, very fussy and feverish. Her temperature was 99.5. I tried to feed her 1/4 tsp of food...she refused! About 15 minutes later projectile vomit all over the floor, her and me! What remedies did I give? Ill post the answer in a few hours...feel free to leave your answers in a comment.
As promised, I am going to present to you a remedy whose constitution is extremely common yet it is one of the most under-prescribed remedies. You might ask yourself why?
Lachesis has so many close similarities to remedies like: PHOSPHOURS, SULPHUR, STAPHYSAGRIA, LYCOPODIUM AND HYOSCYAMUS.
Lachesis has some known affinities for certain organs and systems in the body:
CARDIOVASCULAR, and THROAT. And of course their peculiar symptoms that show they cannot stand any tight or constrictive clothing and also their symptoms are relieved when they have a discharge.
Lachesis has an over-stimulation on every plane: mental, emotional, physical and nervous. If this is so, that means they are going to need an outlet of some sort to maintain a kind of sanity. Their outlets are shown in symptoms such as: restlessness, anticipation anxiety, hypersensitivity, being easily offended, sensitive to criticism, melancholy and depression.
This is part 1...Lachesis is such a big remedy that I will present in different parts! Stay tuned!
