What is Ulcerative Colitis
Ulcerative colitis, as the name suggests is a gastrointestinal disease that causes ulcers in the colon or the large intestine and also the rectum. It is a disease that causes inflammation of the lining of the large intestine and the rectum and is therefore known as an inflammatory bowel disease.
Who is affected by Ulcerative Colitis
Although there is not much awareness about the disease, it is quite common and affects the young people more as compared to the old people. In fact, it is the most common in the age group of 15-35 years of age. The second highest incidence is in the age group of 50-70. The cause of this preference for the above mentioned age groups is poorly understood.

Atopic dermatitis (AD), also called eczema, is an inflammatory, pruritic skin condition associated with immune dysfunction and altered skin barrier function. Prevalence is highest among children, at 10-20%, with 60% of cases beginning within the first year of life. Signs and symptoms include a pruritic, erythematous rash, which may present as dry or thickened skin with excoriations. Patients presenting with pyoderma often have a secondary bacterial infection which may require antibiotics. Location of AD in infants typically begins on the scalp (“cradle cap”), face/cheeks, or extensor surfaces of arms and legs; however, it may present at any location. It is important to check behind the ears, back of the neck, and in folds of skin in any infant suspected of AD. Risk factors for development of atopic dermatitis by 6 months of age include male gender, family...Read More

Do you suffer from hot flushes that make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed?
Do you get night sweats, waking up drenched in perspiration and are forever changing your pyjamas and bedsheets? Or are you always trying to find a way to cool down.
According to the NHS, 3 out of 4 women in the UK experience hot flushes during the menopause. While menopausal symptoms can include a range of symptoms such as mood swings, concentration problems, forgetfulness, bladder infections, weight gain and reduced sex drive, hot flushes can be the most distressing and disturbing of all.
Balancing Hormone Levels Naturally
While lifestyle changes can often help improve hot flushes, sometimes it may not be enough to deal with hormonal fluctuations. Fortunately, Homeopathy offers a safe, gentle and effective alternative to balancing hormones and relieving hot flushes without the use of chemical drugs.

Libby’s Mum tells her story…
I have a 6-year-old daughter named Libby, with Aspergers, who has been treated with constitutional homeopathy for just over a year.
She was not a very healthy or settled baby and I took the decision to wean her at 3 months as she didn’t tolerate my breast milk and I had to put on her on an elemental formula for protein allergies and Losec for reflux. By the time she was 1-year-old she still didn’t tolerate any food and the next years were spent managing her health with a limited diet as she got older and some biomedical supplements.
When we started homeopathy the things I wanted help with was her behaviour and some physical health symptoms. She is a very sensitive child and has lots of allergies that can bring on sensory seeking behaviour and at the time of our first consultation she had become very bossy, argumentative, defiant and inflexible. She...Read More
