Management of allergic rhinitis.
Authors: Solelhac G, Charpin D Abstract In this paper, we review the current management of allergic rhinitis and new directions for future treatment. Currently, management includes pharmacotherapy, allergen avoidance and possibly immunotherapy. The simple washing of nasal cavities using isotonic saline provides a significant improvement and is useful, particularly in children. The most effective medication in persistent rhinitis used singly is topical corticosteroid, which decreases all symptoms, including ocular ones. Antihistamines reduce nasal itch, sneeze and rhinorrhea and can be used orally or topically. When...

Adaptive network nanomedicine: an integrated model for homeopathic medicine.
Authors: Bell IR, Schwartz GE Abstract This paper presents an evidence-based model for the nature and mode of action of homeopathic remedies. Recent studies reveal that homeopathic remedies contain nanoparticles (NPs) of source materials formed by "top-down" mechanical grinding in lactose and/or succussion (forceful agitation) in ethanolic solutions. Silica nanostructures formed during succussions in glass and/or biosynthesized by specific plant extract tinctures also may acquire and convey epitaxial information from remedy source materials into higher potencies. NPs have enhanced bioavailability, adsorptive capabi...

Avoidant Personality Disorder
Homoeopathic Links 2014; 27: 227-229DOI: 10.1055/s-0034-1383202Personality disorders are a group of conditions characterised by an inability to get on with other people and learn from experience. People with a personality disorder may find that their beliefs and attitudes are different from those of most other people. Others may find their behaviour unusual, unexpected or perhaps offensive. In this paper, we discuss a case of a twenty-four-year-old young woman with avoidant personality disorder and subsequent depression, worry, lack of motivation, feelings of inadequacy, and non-assertive behaviour in her romantic relation...

Miasms, Classifications, Symptoms
Homoeopathic Links 2014; 27: 221-226DOI: 10.1055/s-0034-1368650The application of miasmatic theory and the use of nosodes in homeopathy have always been somewhat controversial and reflective of particular interpretations from different homeopaths. However, it is clear that nosodes have a unique and vital role in homeopathic prescribing and open doors in a case where no other remedy will work. Also, miasmatic theory has evolved since Hahnemannʼs time and reveals some of the most fascinating homeopathic interpretations of genetic and epigenetic theories. Therefore, this essay explores the situation when nosodes are needed i...

Global Proving of Natural Silver
Homoeopathic Links 2014; 27: 238-240DOI: 10.1055/s-0034-1383205In 2005, a project was started called Global Proving which involved three substances, Himalayan Crystal Salt, Natural Silver and Arizona Clay. The idea of using a proving not only to get to know the substance but also and primarily to bring about a change in the collective is new in homeopathy and this global proving was a first experiment. Similar to what Hahnemann already stated that participating in provings has positive effects for the prover we may assume that the participation of larger numbers of people in a proving may have positive effects on the colle...

Biology and sign theory: homeopathy emerging as a biosemiotic system
Abstract Diluted above Avogadro’s number, homeopathic medicines allegedly do not contain any molecule of their starting-materials. As Western science is historically based on the notion of matter, alternative epistemological models are needed to account for the biological actions of homeopathic high dilutions. One such model is provided by biosemiotics, an interdisciplinary field devoted to the integration of biology and semiotics based on the fundamental belief that sign production and interpretation is one of the immanent and intrinsic features of life. Several experimental studies show that the information ca...

Physician practicing preferences for conventional or homeopathic medicines in elderly subjects with musculoskeletal disorders in the EPI3-MSD cohort.
CONCLUSION: NSAID use was significantly higher in elderly MSD patients consulting a conventional practice general practitioner. In contrast, analgesic use and MSD evolution were similar in the three groups. Consulting a homeopathic physician for MSD management does not appear to represent a loss of therapeutic opportunity, and decreases the use of NSAIDs. PMID: 25298739 [PubMed]

Importance of complementary medicine approaches for patients with prostate cancer.
CONCLUSION: The results show that prostate cancer patients use a range of CM and have a need for information about CM. Prostate cancer patients are in a special situation because of a regular feedback on the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) value. This should be taken into consideration in consultation with prostate cancer patients regarding CM. PMID: 25297489 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Facilitating a pragmatic comparative trial of the clinical and cost effectiveness of homeopathic treatment for ADHD
Introduction: ADHD is a common and growing problem. There are concerns about current treatments and they are not leading to improved long term outcomes. It is associated with many negative outcomes and a drain on resources across nationally funded support agencies such as education, criminal justice, social work and health care. Any new intervention would need to show clinical and cost effective improvements to these departments and demonstrate improvements in areas of unmet need including: the management of emotion (especially anger); treatment of ADHD in ASD; safety and side effects; and long term effectiveness.

Qualitative evaluation of successful homeopathic treatment of individuals with chronic diseases: descriptive phenomenology of patients’ experiences
Abstract Homeopathy, an over 200-year-old major system of care within complementary and alternative medicine, is used worldwide. While homeopathy has stimulated much debate over the nature of its medicines (remedies), relatively little research has focused on its therapeutic process as experienced by patients in clinical practice. The goal of this qualitative study was to use descriptive phenomenology to assess patients’ experiences of the homeotherapeutic process. We interviewed 36 homeopathic patients with a history of at least one chronic disease who, in the provider’s global clinical impression, had ex...

Complementary and Alternative Therapy (CAM) in the Treatment of Allergic Rhinitis
Abstract CAM is any therapeutic intervention that exists outside traditional allopathic medicine. The utilization in the US population is increasing up to 4 out of 10 patients in some surveys [1]. Given this increasing prevalence, it is essential that clinicians have the resources to advise their patients in the utilizations, benefits, and potential harms of these alternative therapies. Recent literature was reviewed in regard to traditional Chinese medicine [TCM], acupuncture, homeopathy, and herbal therapy in the treatment of allergic rhinitis limited to randomized controlled trials. Several complementary treat...

Complementary Therapies in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.
Abstract Complementary and alternative therapies (CAM) are defined as therapies that are presently not considered part of conventional medical practice. They are termed "complementary" when used in addition to conventional therapies and termed "alternative" when used instead of conventional therapies. CAM includes many different practices, for example Ayurveda, acupuncture or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), phytotherapy, homeopathy, probiotics and dietary supplements. While some evidence of benefit exists regarding some therapies, for most of these therapeutic approaches the therapeutic efficacy and safety has...

In Switzerland, adolescents are expected to know by the age of fifteen whether they want to aim for a university education or enter an apprenticeship for a practical profession. The choice frequently overtaxes them, with many mistakenly choosing the wrong track. This is reflected in a dropout rate of 28.8 % among apprentices. Such mistakes are associated with a range of psychological problems. If they cannot be resolved, there is a great danger that the patient completely drops out of normal ...

The Making Cases Count intiative.
Abstract Given the challenges faced, how can homeopaths communicate the power and scope of the therapeutic system of homeopathy? Homeopaths need to communicate to patients, the public and media, other healthcare professionals, healthcare researchers, and funders of healthcare (healthcare insurers, those who commission healthcare services either in publicly funded healthcare systems such as the NHS or charities). Effective communication with these stakeholders requires information that is: (a) easily understood, (b) credible, and (c) relevant. The patient's voice is the trusted, indisputable and easily understood c...

Non-codified traditional medicine practices from Belgaum Region in Southern India: present scenario
Conclusion: Patrilineal transfer of the knowledge to younger generation was observed in Belgaum region. The observed resemblance in disease diagnosis, plant collection and processing between non-codified traditional system of medicine and Ayurveda require further methodical studies to establish the relationship between the two on a more objective basis. However, the practice appears to be at crossroads with threat of extinction, because of non-inheritance of the knowledge and non-availability of medicinal plants. Hence conservation strategies for both knowledge and resources at societal, scientific and legislative levels a...

CONCLUSIONS: Evidence for the proprietary ASU product Piasclidine® in the treatment of osteoarthritis symptoms seems moderate to high for short term use, but studies over a longer term and against an apparently active control are less convincing. Several other medicinal plant products, including extracts of Boswellia serrata, show trends of benefits that warrant further investigation in light of the fact that the risk of adverse events appear low.There is no evidence that Piasclidine® significantly improves joint structure, and limited evidence that it prevents joint space narrowing.

Post Mastectomy Pain Syndrome (PMPS) is a chronic pain condition, persisting for more than three months after breast surgery. Pain can result from any surgical procedure, but this syndrome is more commonly associated with radical mastectomy with axillary lymphadenectomy. The etiopathogenesis is not clear but the pain is typically neuropathic in nature, characterized as a dull, burning, and aching sensation exacerbated by movements of the shoulder girdle. The incidence is high, ranging from 20 to 50%. This chronic pain causes significant anxiety to the patient and can invoke frustration in the treating practitioner when an ...
