Homeopathy saves show jumper from tendon surgery

With thanks to Horsemart.co.uk 9.2.2011:

Keen show jumper and BHS instructor Liz Morrison was very concerned when her horse Todd came in from the field with a thorn embedded in his lower leg.

Todd a 16.3hh part bred Hanoverian show jumper was put on box rest but only part of the thorn could be removed. The leg began to swell and his vet monitored the injury by scanning the leg every two to three days.

Scanning confirmed Liz Morrison’s worst fear; that the thorn interfered with Todd’s tendon. Surgery at this point was suggested but Liz Morrisondecided against it. The situation remained the same over the next ten days and the thorn became engulfed in a cavity as the body reacted to the foreign body and tried to isolate it by healing around it.

At this point Liz Morrison was unsure of the next step so decided to contact homeopathic vet Nick Thompson to see if he had any suggestions. Nick Thompson immediately came over to assess Todd and prepared a homeopathic medicine which included high potency Sulphur and low potency Silica.

The swelling seemed to subside and three days later Todd had has his leg scanned again. The scan left everyone speechless as it revealed that the thorn had completely vanished and the cavity had reduced in size and appeared to be healing!

Said Nick Thompson: “I was delighted to hear the news that Todd had responded so well to the homeopathic medicine and was able to return to full work without any damage to his tendon.”

Added Liz Morrison: “I think it is amazing that the homeopathic medicine eradicated the thorn so quickly, I am so grateful Todd didn’t need surgery and made a full recovery.”

Liz Morrison has since used homeopathic medicine on several of her horses when traditional veterinary medicine is not yielding the desired results.

The British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons (BAHVS) offer a service to animal owners seeking homeopathic help and can supply names and addresses of veterinary surgeons with homeopathic qualifications. For further information please visit www.bahvs.com.

Kate Middleton is considering becoming the patron of a charity for alternative medicine.

With thanks to The Telegraph by Tim Walker. Edited by Richard Eden 22 Jan 2011:

The Prince of Wales has been criticised for his passionate advocacy of alternative health treatments, but he may have found a kindred spirit in his prospective daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton.

Mandrake hears that Prince William’s fiancée is considering becoming the patron of a new charity offering alternative therapies.

Kate Hudson Hall, the co-founder of the charity, Changez, says she has received a letter from Kate confirming her interest. “I am very excited,” she says. “The letter said she was considering us as a charity to support. I am hopeful.”

Vince Cable, the Business Secretary, is already a patron of the organisation, which is based in his Twickenham constituency in south-west London.

Kate Hudson Hall set it up with her fellow trained hypnotherapist Alan Piper after they were overwhelmed by the number of clients who wanted treatment but could not afford it.

The charity aims to offer confidential and impartial support for people experiencing feelings of distress or suffering trauma.

It is intended to become a one-stop shop for people in need of alternative therapy, offering counselling, clinical hypnotherapy and complementary and alternative medicine services. The founders hope to open branches across the country.

A spokesman at St James’s Palace says it is too soon to say which charities will enjoy the patronage of the future princess.

The only charity with which Kate has been actively involved is the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Her family’s mail-order company, Party Pieces, helps organise events for Starlight, which aims to brighten the lives of seriously ill children.

Wren & Rowe launch Archanus – the first European wine produced from grapes grown using 100 percent homeopathic agriculture

Brand consultants Wren & Rowe have developed Archanus label, the first brand of European wine produced from grapes grown using 100 percent homeopathic agriculture.

Tiny amounts of homeopathic product are used to treat fungi and insects. The first experiments were done in the Vinho Verde region, with the first harvest done in 2009, with a very limited number of bottles.

In 2010, new experiments took place in the Alentejo Region of Portugal. The grapes for Archanus Alicante Bouschet were harvested in the September 2010, the wine is now ageing in oak barrels, and it will be launched exclusively onto the Portuguese and Brazilian market in July 2011.

Brand owner, Manuela Ribeiro, sees a great future for homeopathic wines, “This is a new approach to agricultural practice, which I am sure will help to create greater balance in the natural environment.”

Yeo Valley Organic uses Homeopathy

Yeo Valley Organic use alternative treatment for their cows:

The health of our cows is the top priority on our farms. Organic systems – like those followed at Yeo Valley – include a proactive approach to animal welfare and are designed to minimise stress on livestock that might result in illness; the routine use of antibiotics as a preventative measure to treat our cows’ ailments is not permitted.

As a result of this Steve, the Herd Manager on one of our farms began investigating alternative options to the use of antibiotics and began studying a course on homeopathic treatments.

Since then, Steve has been implementing what he has learnt by using homeopathic treatments and remedies to treat his cows for a number of issues, including warding-off flies and easing the cows’ stress levels when having their feet clipped. The treatments have so far proved successful and, unlike with antibiotics, cows don’t build up immunity to these remedies. In fact, they encourage the cows’ immune systems to fight bugs themselves.

The use of homeopathic treatments not only helps to develop a more robust immune system, it also means no withdrawal periods for milk and meat while the animal is being treated, as would be the case when antibiotics are used.

However, this doesn’t mean we completely avoid more conventional treatments; if we need to treat an animal quickly and effectively we will always choose the treatment, either conventional or alternative, that will be most beneficial to the cow to aid its recovery and this may involve antibiotic use.

Steve’s convinced that homeopathic treatments offer a viable, practical option so he continues to favour treating his herd homeopathically whenever appropriate.
