Janik traces modern medicines roots amid 19th century outcasts

Homeopathy in the News – Sat, 15/02/2014 – 17:32
The scientific rigor of homeopathy pushed regular medicine toward more scientific methods of their own. Homeopathic medicines also tasted good and were nearly pain-free doses, introducing the novel idea of healing without pain. We now expect medicines to come with few, if any side effects, but in the 19th century, painful side effects were considered normal.

Ego-pathy?

Homeopathy in the News – Sat, 15/02/2014 – 17:32
The divisions became apparent in the round of introductions itself. There were those who called for maintaining the purity of each branch of medicine and opposed what they said were half-baked attempts to combine two branches. The other group said that for many people, especially from rural areas, the ‘pathy’ didn’t matter, as long as they were cured and that homeopaths should be given the freedom to practise allopathy for the sake of providing health care to those who did not have easy access to it.

The blog suggested a variety of solutions that the writer, who has a diploma in homeopathic medicine, felt could either help to prevent contracting the flu or mitigate the symptoms. The blog was criticized by medical professionals on a number of points and most said it missed the key advice that what really works is the flu vaccine.

Homeopath develops treatment based on personality

Homeopathy in the News – Sat, 15/02/2014 – 17:32
Homeopathy considers health to be associated with holistic physical, mental and emotional well-being, instead of being a compartmentalized science. Mumbai-based Dr Parinaz Humranwala has gone a step ahead by helping homeopaths in giving tailor-made medication to patients depending on their personality traits. This, she says, helps to fasten the process of recovery by addressing mental and emotional issues along with physical ones.

Vampire Academy- Book Series and Movie Review

Jonathan Treasure’s Herblog – Sat, 15/02/2014 – 02:20
My favorite thing to do in life is read. Above my photography. Above my painting. Above my blogging and snarky Facebook posts. I love to read. And the relationship I have with my Kindle app is sometimes a little scary.
I’m one of those people who completely delves into the world of the book. When I start a good series it’s all I can think about. I day dream about my books. I wish I could jump into half of my books live out a few chapters. Especially when it’s 50 Shades of Grey! Ha!
I read just about everything, save for mystery. I don’t like guessing games. Of course, my favorite genre is romance. What girl can deny herself a hundred odd pages of smutty, ooey gooey romance? Not this one. And I also love paranormal stuff. Vampire, and witches, and shifters, Oh my! I often find myself browsing Amazon’s kindle eBooks section for a few books to read during the week. Like I said, I read a lot. But, in truth, I did not go looking for the book series that I’m currently addicted to.
I’m talking about Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I actually was not interested in this series at all until after seeing the movie. I remember seeing the books on Amazon and reading the descriptions and thinking “eh…too young for me, I’ll pass.” I felt like I couldn’t wrap myself around that young high school feel anymore now that I was older and more mature (Psh…lol). But for my birthday I just couldn’t deny myself a ticket to see the movie. I went by myself because there was no way I was going to drag the hubby into that situation. We tried that with Twilight, and I seriously, even to this day, never hear the end of how I “tortured his ear drums and soul endlessly”. Men are such babies. Anyways back to the movie… It was great! The story is told from Rose Hathaway’s POV. She’s a Dhampir, a half human/half vampire guardian. Her race guards the race of the Moroi, vampires who live discretely in the human world. The Moroi can wield powers of the elements and they are quite peaceful. The ‘bad guy’ of the series would be the Strigoi, Moroi who have killed victims and turned into super strong, soulless beings who are dead set on killing all Moroi royalty. Vampire Academy is about Rose’s journey through high school at St. Vladimir’s as well as her journey to becoming an adult and a fierce guardian. Don’t get me wrong, there were parts where I was like “Cliche!” or “That shit is so high school!” But the underlying story was so captivating that I’m going to go see it again. I’m telling you, I’m a nerd guys. Just love me for who I am. The movie was interesting, full of action, and also full of humor. Before I even left the theater parking lot, I was already downloading all of Mead’s books. There was no way I could go to sleep without starting Lissa and Rose’s next journey. Like the nerd I am, I flew through the first and second books. If you looked at my iPad right now where my Kindle app is, you’d see my nose print on the screen. I was literally trying to jump into the story, it was that good. Again, there are some parts where I can’t connect because I’m older, but I loved that the author was able to keep a great storyline going while keeping true to the high school mindset of Rose and Lissa. And Oh. My. God. Can we just talk about how hot Dimitri is?!?!? I’ve gotta say that he is now my favorite book boyfriend. And the actor for Dimitri in the movie isn’t bad at all. And by that I mean, Danila Kozlovsky, I’m ready to start my second marriage off by choosing you and your hot body! Swoon! I’m now on the fifth book and I’m completely immersed in this world of Moroi and Strigoi and Spirit! It’s hard not to be! Mead makes all of the books run so smoothly one after the other that it’s hard to find a stopping point. Seriously, Mead, I’ve thought about skipping work to finish a chapter. It’s unhealthy! I absolutely love the character Rose. How could anyone not? Exactly. She’s smart mouthed, strong, confident, and secretly a lover. After watching Bella in Twilight and then Rose in Vampire Academy there is no doubt in my mind which role model I would choose for young girls. Rose’s character shows that you can have strong friendships, heart stopping love, a career, and kick a little ass. But let me tone down my nerdiness for a second to really write this book recommendation. The Vampire Academy series (movie and book) was a surprise to me, and a wonderful one! I cannot put the series down and I’m pretty sure I’ll shed a book tear or two when I’m finished with book six. The series is humorous, enticing, sexy, and full of energy. I completely recommend it to anyone who loves vampires, loves magic, loves romance and loves a little humor. Okay…nerd girl ranting complete. Get used to it guys. I’m going to be posting a lot of book recommendations in the future.
