Quote[/b] ]DR GARETH : Vitamin Boost is an E-Sy Option

QI RECENTLY read a report about potential harmful effects of Vitamin E. I have poor circulation and was considering starting a course.

What should I do?' AI BELIEVE in erring on the side of caution in that low doses are the safest. I would confidently advocate the 200i.u. dose of Vitamin E, taking one tablet daily.

QI HAVE a family history of cardiac problems but tests have shown my heart is fine. I'm fit and healthy and on no medication but feel I ought to be on something.

A PREVENTION is better, and easier, than cure. Garlic-Hawthorn Complex by Bioforce is formulated to help strengthen the heart and improve arterial circulation. Take one capsule twice daily.

QOne of the pains of getting old is aching joints. I'm also asthmatic and limited to certain painkillers. Any advice?

ALimit yourself to a diet free of acid and get yourself on to Salt-free Glucosamine - one tablet twice a day with meals - to improve joint health. In addition you may find the gel equivalent useful as it is absorbed quickly and can provide almostimmediate relief. Both products are available in health shops.

QI find it hard to take the Silicea liquid you recommend for hair, nails and skin. Is there an alternative?

AYOU'LL be delighted to hear it's now made in capsule form. Treatment should be kept up for at least 10 weeks before noticeable results are expected.

QYOU previously recommended Drosinula Cough Syrup for a hacking cough but I'm having difficulty sourcing it for my 10-year-old.

AYOUR local health store should stock Drosera homoeopathic tablets, 30c potency, which is the alternative. Give your child two tablets every two hours for the first six doses then drop it down to two tablets twice daily until improvement sets in. It canbe ordered from Freeman's Homoeopathic Pharmacy, call 0845 22 55 1 55

A friend in England grows Drosera binata and mows the flats to sell by the kilo to some European concerns that market these preparations - it helps to finance his growing operation.  I think that it is an ingredient in Ricola cough drops, but I'm not certain.

If anyone can distinguish a homeopathic remedy from distilled water, by any method, there's a prize of $1000000 waiting for them.
But, basic physics says it can't be done: at the dilutions homeopaths use it's billions upon billions upon billions to one that there will be a single molecule of the original substance left in the 25ml of water that you buy.
So, do the math (or go to a site that does the math for you). If any commercial company was actually making 30C potency solutions on an industrial scale there would be enough waste water produced to supply a small city. No, I think they're just selling small jars of distilled water in the certain knowledge that no-one can prove otherwise.
The exploitation of the sick and the gullible upsets me....

I agree, I have tried it myself. By the way, they dont always dilute it that much it depends on what the're trying to treat. Somtimes they only dilute it 3 or 4 times in 9 parts of water. I could probably distinguish between homeopathic remedies and distilled water. And they usually come in pills, not water.

Oh and also, part of it is placebo. But a lot of it is the medicine. Its not just of rip off, there are homeopathic doctors you can see for treatment, it was discovered so to speak by Samual Hannamen in the late 1800's

As Samuel Hahnemann died in 1843 it's very unlikely he discovered homeopathy in the late 1800s , and homeopaths dilute stuff a lot more than that you claim.
Some homeopathic medicines (such a a popular one for influenza) are diluted to 200C. The final product in these bottles, if prepared according to the label, would contain the following percentage of active ingredient:

.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001%

If a 25 millilitre bottle contained just one molecule of the active ingredient, the percentage would be:

.00000000000000000000012%

'nuff said.

I'm with tonyc on this one, but I was curious about the one million dollar offer.  I think I found the site:  http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/2512105.stm

I think the Amazing Randi went after a televanglist trying to promote 'miracle spring water' back in the 80s.  Funny, I just saw this guy (Peter Popov?) hawking this on the tube the other night.  It is free...but they hit you up for a 'donation'.

But ultimately, if you believe that it can work, maybe it can--for you.  For me, I'll stick to Western medicine.  I just love trying to get my money's worth for my insurance premiums!  lol

The brain is very powerful (especially within the body lol... directly anyway).
Did you know there's an opposite to the placebo effect? I think it's nocebo? something like that... where instead of getting better because you think you will, you get worse or there is no effect because you think you won't, even if you are given real medicine.

Late 1800s early 1800s it doesnt matter. I studied homeopathy for a year so I am telling you now there is such a thing as 1x 5x 10x and 30x potencies which are actually often used. x means it was diluted in 9 parts of solvent. Stronger potencies are most often used for problems of the mind to taper any physical effects it might have. If you hear otherwise, it might be a scam. Also if you ever hear anyone say this will cure you for that cold, that is definatly a scam unless you have been given an examination by yourself or someone else. It doesn't usually work if you prescribe it that way. Homeopathy is all about treating the patient as a whole. Many bona fide and well thought out studies have been conducted and shown that homeopathy is more effective than placebo. Usually much more effective. The whole idea is that the body needs only a small nudge to kick start its own defenses. If you practice homeopathy you do not usually take a remedy unless somthing does not heal as fast as it should. lthough it will always speed up the process.
