Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
That old saying 'may you live in interesting times' has been on my mind a while now. For these certainly are interesting times. Whichever side of the fence you're on. Whether it's a 'medicate everyone and it'll all be OK', or 'where is the information about natural immunity and why is it all being suppressed?', we are being bombarded with information from both sides of the metaphorical fence.
Last week for example, a friend and colleague sent me this:
I don't really even know where to start! I could rant on about how the concept of anti-vaxx is one dreamed up by the media to help cause further division and shut down conversation - which in my opinion, having been branded with that stick, on the basis of my profession, I should know a little bit about. I could tell you about all the mums I know who breastfeed and don't question this, don't home educate, don't all become hippies camping out in a yurt plaiting their underarm hair. But I thought best to breathe, be aware and move on.
Interesting that we need to shut down 'skepticism of institutional authority and healthy living practices' though. Because why? No one should be questioned? I'm not talking about the 'Big V' question. I have no desire to. But healthy living? Really?? Surely the American Academy of Paediatrics would quite like some 'healthy living' folk out there?
But then, the next thing I saw was this from The Guardian: Lunar cycle has distinct effect on sleep, study suggests.
So perhaps we are in tune with nature after all. Or quite 'natural'. Then today's Guardian article discusses a project where, along with vitamins, homeopathic products were sent out to over 1000 NHS staff in early pandemic days. Does Vitamin D combat Covid?
Years ago The Guardian printed a brilliant article by a colleague: I don't know how, but homeopathy really does work. Since then times have changed and sharing openly positive articles towards homeopathy are not the way the mainstream press goes.
But perhaps, in these paradoxical times - are they a-changing back towards a more natural focus; is that why we need a big push back against it?
One to muse for sometime I wonder.
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
