Faculty meetings all day yesterday

Yes, it was a full day of meetings, capped off by an excellent lecture by David Owen.

In order to stretch my legs a little during the brief lunch pause, I strolled in the garden at the venue (Royal College of Physicians) and espied this wonderful flowering Hamamelis specimen (better known as Witch Hazel).

On our AVMC Facebook page (www.facebook.com/AVMC.UK), there is a series of verses on homeopathic medicines for animals, including one on Hamamelis, featuring this photo.

 

Verses on Homeopathic Medicines

On our Facebook page, we have verses and pictures of homeopathic first-aid medicines for animals.

These are intended as a handy way to remember the scope of the remedies.

It is an ongoing series.

FEED YOUR HORSE THE NATURAL WAY

eBook available:

www.lulu.com/shop/christopher-day/feed-your-horse-the-natural-way-the-platform-upon-which-to-build-health/ebook/product-20484227.html

Christopher Day MRCVS has been treating horses for more than forty years and has a special interest in their safe and natural feeding and nutrition. This eBook offers a simple-to-follow approach to providing your horse with a species-suitable, fresh and wholesome diet, which has brought health and welfare benefits to so many of his patients. In the author’s opinion, expensive and vigorously-marketed manufactured horse foods and supplements are not the best way to feed your horse for stamina, performance, musculo-skeletal health, immune resilience and a long, happy and active life. The horse is the archetypal vegan and thrives on fibrous foods. Christopher Day advocates feeding as close to Nature as one can, in this modern society. This eBook provides a simple guide to taking your horse’s health and well-being into your own hands. Your horse will be thankful for it, every day.

Flu vaccine increases risk

I have long thought that vaccination over-specialises the immune system, at the expense of general immune capability.

Here’s some evidence that this theory may not be very wide of the mark:

Think very carefully before consenting to vaccination! Apart from the risk of serious side effects, these is a risk of increasing your susceptibility to other bugs.

Homeopathic First-Aid for Animals

Our series of first-aid medicines is growing, over at www.facebook.com/AVMC.UK.

We have now reached medicine number 24 out of the planned 40.

HOMEOPATHIC FIRST-AID MEDICINES

24 – HYPERICUM (Hypericum perforatum)

(2nd Edition)

Prepared from the St Johns Wort plant.

Hypericum perforatum - St Johns WortHypericum’s main claim to fame, in first-aid application, is in the treatment of injury to nerves or injury to regions of the body rich in nerve endings (e.g. tail, digits, ear flaps). Typically, the pain is very intense and responds rapidly to a few doses of Hypericum. The medicine also appears to stimulate the healing of nerve damage. Typical veterinary scenarios are someone stepping upon a puppy’s toes, shutting a dog’s tail in a car door or injury to toes by abrasion.

Painful lacerations, grazes and excoriations also appear to become less painful almost immediately upon dosing with Hypericum.

In herbivore’s eating live St Johns Wort can damage the liver, leading to a condition called photosensitisation, in which white or pink skin can be burned (sometimes severely) even in subdued sunlight. Homeopathic Hypericum can bring about rapid relief from the consequent pain and appears to stimulate more rapid healing and resolution.

Recommended homeopathic potency: 6c or 30c. The frequency of dosing will depend upon the situation and upon the responses. Hypericum lotion is also available, to enable topical bathing of affected areas. The lotion is sometimes mixed with Calendula lotion.
