In this class, we will talk about Homeopathic Prophylaxis (HP) as a safe way to “educate” our immune system.
So what is Homeoprophylaxis?
It is the use of homeopathic medicines to protect the individual from a certain disease or affliction. In this class, we will focus on the use of HP to prevent infectious disease. Especially childhood infectious diseases. We will talk about the work of Free and Healthy Children International (FHCI). To read about the work they do, go here. FCHI is a non-profit dedicated to research, education and access to HP.
OK, so you’re thinking: Does California (or any state for that matter) consider enrollment in FCHI’s homeoprophylaxis program as meeting state mandated requirements for immunization?
On Earth Day, April 22nd, we will launch Transition Albany Health Group’s Medicine-Making Series. And we start with how to make your very own Calendula tincture! It’s the perfect time. Calendula blossoms are everywhere. Gorgeous blossoms that follow the sun from sunrise to sunset. If you walk around the neighborhood, you’ll see them.
What’s Calendula officinalis and why should you bother making a tincture out of it? Well, it is only the number one homeopathic remedy for open wounds! I routinely slice off tips of my fingers and I’ve never had to have any of it stitched up. I simply spray Calendula on the open wound and the next day I only have a pink spot. Yes, yes, only slivers of my flesh were cut off, but enough to cause profuse bleeding, etc. But with my Calendula around, no more open wound. No infection. No scar. If you have children who occasionally lose the skin off their knees, etc., Calendula can easily become your best friend, if not already.
So wouldn’t you like to know how to make your own stash of this awesome vulnerary?
Thought so. (more…)
