Over the years, in the clinic, we have seen a lot of children with ADD and ADHD symptoms. Some of these children's symptoms benefit from a constitutional homeopathic remedy. Other children do best with dietary changes, avoiding food sensitivities and supplementing with missing vitamins or minerals in their diet. Each child has a regime suited to their particular needs. Interestingly, a small study showed that children treated with single homeopathic remedies improved over the course of one year, whereas the other group of children that only received that same amount of time did not.

A recent study, published in the JAMA, of 544 volunteers, who reported their dietary habits weekly for four years, found that eating fish and other seafood at least once a week helps to lower the risk of alzheimer's disease. 286 participants volunteered for a brain biopsy after death. The tissue samples found that despite having higher amounts of mercury in the brain due to fish consumption, less markers of parkinson's disease were presents such as lewy bodies and other pathological signs. Even people with the ApoE4 genotype which leads to a higher incidence of parkinson's, benefited from higher fish constumption.

Bagot, published in Homeopathy, (2016), 105, 119-125 found that side effects of cancer drugs may be helped by using homeopathic medicines prepared with the drug of choice and administered. The homeopathics were shown to greatly reduce side effects in the sensitive patient. How great is that? This is where the patient gets the best of both worlds.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines, such as Ibuprofen, have been a long-time trusted pain-killer for those who especially suffered from arthritis and muscular aches, including menstrual cramps. However, scientific literature has been available since 2005 that says that Ibuprofen may not be as safe as once thought. Numerous studies have linked the popular over-the-counter pain relief aid to cerebrovascular accident (stroke) and other health maladies, including bleeding gastric ulcers and gastritis. The more of the medicine that is taken, the higher the incidence of these complications appears to be.
