“Homeopathy is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of this age better than any other system or school of medicine”
– Charles Menninger, founder of the Menninger Clinic
Every year for a week beginning April 10th homeopaths and communities gather together to share education and accessibility of homeopathy. In celebration of Samuel Hahnemann’s birthday (founder of Homeopathy) and of all those who have healed through homeopathy, over 40 countries come together to increase awareness and accessibility of homeopathy. Here at Kundalini House our resident Homeopath Katerina Nestorovska will be holding a free workshop on “First Aid with Homeopathy” on Saturday 12th April at 2pm. In addition, she will be available for any questions you may have earlier that day (11:30am-1:30pm) at reception. Come along to the workshop to learn how you can use Homeopathy in basic first aid situations with your family and/or pop into reception and have a chat and ask any questions you may have earlier in the day.
Homeopathic travel first aid kits will be available for purchase at a special price of $75 (a saving of $13) on the day. In addition, between April 10th and May 10th Katerina will be offering all initial Homeopathic consultations for a special rate of $80. That’s a saving of $40! To book an appointment contact Katerina on 0416274807.
In the mean time here is some interesting information about Homeopathy:

The World Health Organization has stated that homeopathy is the second leading system of medicine for primary health care in the world. It is covered by national healthcare systems in many countries and is recommended by healthcare professionals worldwide. Over 30 million people in Europe use homeopathic medicine.
In 1831 Cholera swept through Europe. Homeopaths treating the disease achieved a mortality rate (number of people who died) of less than 4% compared to conventional medical treatments, where the mortality rate was 59%. In 1854 during the cholera outbreak in London, deaths at the London Homeopathic Hospital were a mere 16.4% compared with the 50% average for other hospitals.
In France, all pharmacies are required by law to fill homeopathic prescriptions as well as prescriptions for drugs from conventional doctors. The best selling ‘flu remedy in France is a homeopathic medicine: Anas Bar 200c, commonly marketed under the trade name Oscillococcinum – it is effective primarily at the first signs of influenza.
The most popular hayfever remedy in Germany is homeopathic, and other medicines for the common cold, sore throats and circulatory problems are in the top ten of their respective categories.
There are five National Health Service funded homeopathic hospitals in Britain: Bristol, Liverpool, Glasgow, Tunbridge Wells and London opened throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The largest, the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital, treats around 2,000 patients per week. Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital sees 2,500 new patients a year, with 81% of patients rating their care as very good or excellent. A survey in Glasgow has shown recorded referrals to the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital from every GP practice in Glasgow over a two year period. Referrals to all the NHS homeopathic hospitals continue to rise.
Mother Teresa added homeopathic care to the services at her missions. She opened her first charitable homeopathic dispensary in Calcutta in 1950 and had a special interest in homeopathy because of its effectiveness and low cost.
Since its inception 200 years ago, homeopathy has attracted support from European royalty, the educated elite and leading artists. It was thus no surprise that one of the most expensive paintings ever sold was that of a portrait of a homeopathic physician, Dr. Gachet, drawn by her personal friend and patient, Vincent van Gogh. The painting sold for $82.5 million dollars.
