New Integrative Health Education IHE Courses for 2016

Leading naturopath, naturopathic nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner, Emma Lane, will present two new courses in 2016. Emotions From Within examines the impact that our emotions and past traumas have on our physical health. Facial Tells of ‘Dis-ease’ reveals what the face can tell us about our health and disposition. Both courses are suitable for anyone interested in health and wellbeing as well as providing holistic health practitioners with valuable new tools to help them work with their clients to restore optimal 

New Integrative Health Education IHE Courses for 2016

Emotions From Within

Did you know that the liver retains fury, hatred, vengeance and anger? Deep anxieties and anger frequently develop because we feel incapable of moving forward or letting go. Not coming to terms with past trauma can lead to emotional and physical toxicity. The course will examine which organs manifest and hold onto which specific emotions, how these manifestations affect us, what these symptoms are communicating and how these emotional and physical health issues can be resolved.

During the course, Emma Lane will share her extensive experience of the emotional and physical impact on health, including:

  • Common physical and emotional links and how you can effectively guide your client with practical, effective and useable tools to gain true holistic healing outcomes;
  • How our emotions can cause dysfunction in the digestive system and how common life choices can create disharmony within our being;
  • Valuable insights into how organs can create emotional and mental state changes and how our programmed behaviours create detrimental physical responses in individual organs;
  • Emotional barriers to organ function and resolution;
  • Appropriate healing options.

The first Emotions from Within course will run twice in 2016 - 16th January 2016 in Wakefield and 18th September in London.

Facial Tells of ‘Dis-ease’

Did you know that by looking carefully at a person’s facial features, face shape and markings you can gain valuable insights into their general disposition and character traits? Building on Emma Lane’s Tells Of The ‘Dis-Eased Body’, this unique course examines how our face is a mirror for our personality and reveals what can be learnt about the health, temperament and life of another person from their facial ‘tells’.

Face reading has been utilized by healers for thousands of years. The ancient Chinese believed that your face reflects who you are and why you think, feel and behave the way that you do. For example, the ears show one’s past with every bump and mark on their rim. For women the right ear is representative of conception to six years of age and the left ear represents from seven to 14 years of age.  The ability to read these signs is a powerful tool for practitioners to use in consultations and when designing the best approach for a client’s individual health and wellbeing needs. By understanding the features of a person’s face, you will be able to gain an understanding of the person to whom you are talking, even before they start to communicate verbally.

The first Facial Tells of ‘Dis-ease’ course will run on 17th January 2016 in Wakefield and 17th September in London. Attendees do not need to complete the Tells of the ‘Dis-Eased Body’ course before booking Facial Tells of ‘Dis-ease’.

Review

Reflexology has, at its core, the principle of 'reflection', the concept of the microcosm connecting to and mirroring the macrocosm. With this book, Dr Cross presents nearly 30 charts. His aim is to show these charts together, to provide a reference and workbook 'for the practical physical therapist who uses reflexology in any form. He is a leading teach of light touch reflextherapy. The charts are colourful and clear, drawn from disciplines such as Reflexology, TCM, Ayurveda and Applied Kinesiology.

This book will be of particular interest to the multi-disciplinary therapist. With all its complexity, the book remains clear and accessible. It is a delight for anyone intrigued by the reflected energy pathways within the human body.

Munro-Hall Clinic - Calcium Therapy Approach to Periodontal [Gum] Disease

A New Approach to Gum Disease

Periodontal or gum disease is the commonest disease for adults on the planet and it affects nearly everyone.

Progression of Periodontal Disease

Traditional treatment has been cleaning, antibiotics and surgery to cut away the infected tissue. This is neither very pleasant or  generally successful. However, the Calcium Therapy Institute in the USA have pioneered another approach which is now available in the UK at the Munro-Hall Clinic, an holistic dental clinic in Bedfordshire.

Periodontal disease is caused by a bacterial infection. The key to treatment is to eliminate the bacteria causing the problem. The bacteria lodged in the gum around the necks of the teeth produce toxins which create inflammation which in turn eats away at the bone supporting the teeth. The bacteria collect in a sticky film called plaque. If left unchecked this supporting bone disappears, the tooth loosens and will eventually fall out. It is traditionally thought that once bone is lost it is gone forever. The Calcium Therapy Institute treatment has shown this to be false and can actually grow new bone around loose teeth.

As the disease progresses the pockets around the tooth become deeper and more difficult to clean. The process is slow, painless and inexorable. There may be bleeding when brushing, the gum can recede from the necks of the teeth otherwise the patient can be in blissful ignorance of the disease process taking place in the body. Not only that, the bacteria causing the gum disease are implicated in heart disease, neurological and gut problems so it is not just a dental problem but one that affect general health and wellbeing of patients in a very dramatic way.

Smoking, diabetes, poor oral hygiene, poor dietary habits and poor restorative dentistry are major risk factors in gum disease. These risk factors can be managed by the patient with instruction, perseverance, diligence and expert help. There is a genetic predisposition in some individuals, especially from the sub continent, which means they have to work harder than average in beating the disease.

However, to reverse gum disease depends on the pH or acid/alkali balance of the pocket around the tooth. This view is not accepted by conventional periodontists but experience with Calcium Therapy has shown  that pH is the key to healthy gums as indeed it is to most chronic health conditions. What Calcium Therapy does is to place a calcium compound in the pockets between the teeth and gums. This changes the pH of the pocket from acidic which the bacteria like and create to a very alkaline environment which they cannot live in. The high pH removes the bacteria and the calcium compounds stimulates new bone to grow between the gum and the teeth. The process needs to be repeated by the dentist and there is programme to follow at home but the results can be dramatic in just a few months. 

It is an approach that safe, effective and much less traumatic than conventional periodontal therapies. The Calcium Therapy Institute website is full of enthusiastic endorsements from patients and dentists alike. The Munro-Hall Clinic in Kempston Rural, which is an holistic dental clinic,  has undergone training with Calcium Therapy Institute and can offer this treatment to patients who request it.

BCNH New Online Lectures Delivery System - Live Distance Learning

Our students can study for a part-time BSc (Hons) programme in Nutritional Therapy (delivered by the University of Greenwich in partnership with BCNH), Level 6 Diploma in Nutritional Therapy (credit-rated by UG) or a science foundation course.  BCNH continues to expand in terms of students and staff. This year we had the highest student intake in Year 1 to date, which suggest that BCNH is becoming increasingly more popular and recognised for the quality of its teaching and student support.  We have also employed two new Programme Leaders to help the Head of Education with the increasing academic workload.

As always, studying at BCNH is demanding, but informative and enjoyable. As a small college, every student is treated as an individual and students are very happy with both the academic support they receive and the quality of the educational materials. This year, we have introduced a brand new system for delivering lectures online, so distance learning students can watch lectures live, while all students can choose to watch parts or all of the lecture again in their own time via a sophisticated search system. The lecture and audio recordings are of high quality and students love it.

At BCNH, the ethos is not about making money, but achieving the best possible academic and clinical standards for our students. We believe in thorough education and an in-depth understanding of mechanisms, so that upon graduation our students can start their clinical practice with confidence and are well equipped to write letters to GPs and other health professionals with confidence, professionalism and authority.

We do not believe that Nutritional Therapy is an ‘alternative medicine’ but a complementary discipline to medical profession. Hence our teaching is based on the latest research and students are required to apply the latest research findings when seeing clients in a clinical setting. Hence our students say that Year 4 clinical practice is the most difficult, yet the most rewarding part of the course.

Aside from meeting academic requirements, students are also encouraged to contribute to our quarterly newsletter. Our students, graduates and members of the public enjoy reading about the latest news at BCNH, the success of various graduates, food and science topics and a bit of humour as well.

Infertility and Clinical Homeopathy

Dr Tasos A Vartholomaios MD Member of the Faculty of Homeopathy UK Fertility Homeopathic Care

Clinical Homeopathy has been gaining increasing recognition all across the world, especially in countries employing Homeopathy in their NHS on equal conditions with conventional medicine. Dr. Richard Hughes, Dr Clarke, Dr Burnett, et al, leading figures in British Homeopathy, highlighted the importance of  the patient’s pathology  in the classic homeopathic case analysis and prescribing.

Tasos Vartholomaios

Clinical Homeopathy can reverse infertility because it gets to the root cause of infertility and stimulates the body's own abilities to heal itself. Clinical Homeopathy is very effective in reversing infertility because it applies to both the person and the disease. Clinical Homeopathic medicine can effectively address conditions related to infertility like:

  1. PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, scarred fallopian tubes;
  2. Hormonal imbalances like poor ovarian response leading to anovulatory cycles and short luteal phase, low progesterone, and estrogen dominance;
  3. Metabolic imbalances like hypothyroidism, adrenal burn out, etc.;
  4. Low sperm count, poor sperm motility and/or morphology;
  5. History of recurrent miscarriages, preterm births and still births.

Besides, many unexplained infertility cases can be also benefited by Clinical Homeopathy, since they are related to factors that can be effectively treated by Clinical Homeopathy, like emotional and mental stress and long term use of birth control pills.

Homeopathy can help women increase their general health, gynaecological health and reproductive health at any age. Many women have difficulty getting pregnant naturally and may not produce good eggs for IVF cycles. Clinical Homeopathy can offer increased reproductive wellness aimed to stimulate ovulation, through elective action on relevant organs (ovaries, uterus, etc) and functional processes(hormonal interrelationships, etc.).Some women will resume ovulation, solve their hormonal problems and conceive naturally with the help of homeopathy. Others will be helped to produce healthy egg for IVF. Homeopathy is very effective in stimulating the ovary to ovulate, even after rounds of failed IVF cycles. Homeopathy may also be used during IVF Cycle. Homeopathic remedies can and should be also   taken during each stage of your IVF cycle. The remedies address issues related to most fertility procedures and  assist implantation.

It is also important  that many scientific studies have shown how stress is extremely damaging to fertility. Women who try to conceive under stress have lower chances of getting pregnant. During high stress levels, the body produces certain hormones that can delay or even suppress ovulation and prevent pregnancy. Homeopathic remedies assist the body to cope with physical and emotional stress.

Finally, it is important that the Homeopath has high level training and clinical experience in Gynaecological Pathology, so that pathology data can easily be translated to appropriate and indicated homeopathic prescribing through Clinical Homeopathy.

Helios Combination Remedies Launch

Helios Homeopathy was founded in 1986 by Pharmacist and Homeopath John Morgan to provide a new source of accurate and potent remedies made to traditional methods.  Over the last 28 years Helios has built a reputation with homeopaths, pharmacies, health stores and consumers for making remedies and creams of quality and integrity and offering a high level of expert advice and support for all their customers.   Now they have over 3,500 individual remedies available which are sold in 140 countries around the world.

Helios Combination Remedies Launch

Today, a new Helios range of combination remedies has been inspired by John Morgan and developed by Helios’s marketing manager and trained homeopath, Roz Crompton.

“We are used to seeing single remedies sold over the counter in the UK but in our pharmacy and in Europe, combination remedies are very popular,” says Roz. “We have put together combinations of remedies with a long history of traditional use for specific complaints most frequently seen over the counter.  It is much easier for the consumer, especially those new to homeopathy, to take the first step to try a remedy with an indication.”   John adds: “It has taken a long time to get these products to market due to the complexity of the licensing process, but it is worth the wait and we are delighted with them.”

The new range covers the following complaints:

  • ABC - Minor childhood fevers, earache and teething in infants.
  • Injury - Minor injuries, bruises, strains and sprains.
  • Hay Fever - Relief of symptoms associated with typical hay fever symptoms.
  • Sleep - Temporary relief of minor sleep disturbances.
  • Stress Relief - Relief of symptoms associated with mild stress.

“Thanks to the press, people are so much more aware of the detrimental effect that some conventional over the counter medicines can have and they want a choice,” says Roz. “These five new combination remedies are made from natural substances, without harmful chemicals and do not have side effects.” They are licensed under the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) giving peace of mind to both retailers and consumers that they are produced under the strictest quality control procedures.

Helios takes a great deal of care when sourcing ingredients to ensure they are from ethical, sustainable sources, organically produced where possible and free from chemicals of any kind. “I am delighted with the new remedies and the way they look,” adds Roz. “They have real on-shelf appeal and will be backed by comprehensive point of sale literature.” A tried and trusted brand, Helios wanted to bring something refreshing and new to market to highlight the benefits of homeopathy and make it easy for both retailers to recommend and consumers to try homeopathy for the most common minor ailments and first aid complaints.

Why Patients Come to The Dove Clinic

We like to think it is because we offer a choice, or in some cases just an option where one has not yet been available.  This was the ethos when the Dove Clinic was established in 2000 by Dr Julian Kenyon and his wife, Tanya.  We also think it is because we are making available something which the patient needs.  On an annual basis we carry out a satisfaction survey with patients who have visited the Clinic in the previous twelve months.  The 2015 survey is still active but the initial feedback is very encouraging.  That is not to say we are perfect, far from it.  But we do look to learn from the feedback we receive to improve the service we are offering.

Dove Clinic Nurses Aftercare

When we reflect on our patients, we see that we see more women than men.  Since the Clinic started measuring the proportion in 2008, the balance has stayed pretty much static – twice as many women as men. The average age of our patient has not fluctuated much in that time either.  The average patient is somewhere between 47 and 50, although the Clinic sees a number of patients who are considerably older or younger than the average. 

What sets all of the Clinic’s apart of course, is their individuality and that is reflected in the type of chronic conditions which they present with.  Since 2008, the Clinic has seen almost 20,000 consultation/nursing appointments take place and around 63% have been for Doctor Consultation appointments.   The chronic conditions range from IBS and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to more Life Threatening conditions.

Today, a new patient at the Clinic will receive an in depth letter following the completion of their initial consultation, together with a reason why certain supplements or treatment regimens are recommended.  If the treatment regime involves the use of an unlicensed medicine, the patient will be given an informed consent document outlining what the treatment regime involves.  The Informed Consent process also includes a 24 hour cooling off period.  It is important that the patient does not feel rushed into undertaking a treatment without understanding the implications either.

Treatments at the Dove Clinic can be offered to work alongside conventional treatment and where possible, Dr Kenyon will look to maintain a correspondence with the patient’s treating physician. The Clinic monitors the progress of the patient through follow up appointments and a number of blood tests which are carried out by third party partners of the Dove Clinic.  If potential patients would like to decide if the Dove Clinic is for them, they can make contact with any of the clinical team before committing to a consultation.

Raise your Vibration : Upgrade your Soul

The powerful date of 11th November 2015 has given us all permission to launch into new beginnings, where all we focus on is accessible, an option to every one of us. Manifestation has become very speedy as we move fully into the 5th dimensional consciousness, moving more fully into increased synchronicity, expansion of time, bliss, fun and unconditional love. We are always renewing cells and molecules within our bodies and auric fields, upgrading and evolving. What if we were to clear our inner clutter?

Raise your Vibration : Upgrade your Soul

Raise your Vibration

How would it be if we were to look at our inner itinerary, take stock of our current emotional patterns, see some of the baggage that may have served us well in the past, but now seem heavy and unhelpful as we move forwards? What is our positive potential?  Old illnesses CAN and do heal, WHEN you give them permission. I am proving this in my life. I was confined to a wheelchair a couple of years ago, and told to take allopathic medication which I firmly declined.  I was very unpopular with the hospital doctors and they tried to use fear-based tactics to persuade me! I realize that they have limited options available to them and preferred to take the responsibility for my own health and look further. I have become completely drug free after 2 decades of being on thyroid medication and being diagnosed with apparently ‘incurable’ auto-immune disorders which had me relying on pain killers for the last 2 years. I changed my diet, use all my chakra and organ balancing creams and taking a couple of iodine based supplements and Vit C in quite high doses initially. Within 16 weeks I lost 2 stone of extra weight I had been carrying, and stopped painkillers and thyroxin. I have never felt better! The transformation is absolutely incredible. Our inner programmes are upgrading and so are we.  Emotions like guilt, hatred, anger, judgement, frustration, intolerance, stubbornness, bitterness, grief, abandonment, impatience, addictions and fear are all ‘heavy’ to carry. They are our shadow and if they are within us they will only hold us back from achieving our fullest positive potential, which is actually limitless. 

Powerful Exercise

Find yourself a peaceful place, where you won’t be disturbed for 20mins or more. Light a candle. Take a moment to visit your inner self. Breathe deeply 3 times and allow the breath to go deep within your belly and heart-space. Now, face your fears, take stock of the old you. Your old patterns (look at the heavy emotions highlighted above) , some may have been with you since childhood and earlier. Write all the heavy emotions you feel within you on some small pieces of paper, one at a time, really feeling how you would be without this in your life any more. Maybe even shed a tear or better, deeper sobs, as you revisit memories. Keep adding further pieces of paper until you feel you are happy and comfortable to release all these emotions. Carefully burn each in the flame. Watch as the pieces of paper disintegrate and release each word and emotion. Visualize the energy transmuting and disappearing.

Now visualise yourself standing in the warm sunshine in your favourite outdoor space, and feeling the warm rays on your face and body filling all the space you have created within yourself in your release, with vibrant light and brightness. Breathe this in.

Congratulations. You just raised your vibration and the new you will attract new positive experiences. As you vibrate, so you attract. Be prepared for more synchronicities appearing in your life…more positive outcomes, situations, people and friends. Enjoy, be grateful daily and celebrate this amazing new start. It’s a very exciting time to be alive. J

by Emily Evans: BSc (Hons.) Anatomy and Cell Biology PGCE MMAA RMIP

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2015. Hardback. £24.16. $29.38. ISBN: 1905367589.

Anatomy in Black, released 1 October 2015, is a sophisticated coffee table book for anatomy lovers and casual observers alike. It illustrates the beauty of human anatomy reflected in a contemporary hardback book, created entirely in black and gold.  Traditional anatomical imagery is given a new lease of life through modern interpretation in this stylish publication. The book comprehensively leads the reader through the human body in seven chapters dedicated to each area of the human body; which include: head & neck, back, upper limb, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and lower limb.

Luxury Anatomy book: Anatomy in Black

It covers the same level of detail and content with each illustration as a standard academic anatomy book. A thorough evaluation of each anatomical part is conveyed in double page spreads with summary text to put the area in context and explain some of the more complicated anatomical terminology and function for those encountering anatomy for the first time.

This makes this book a perfect companion for those interested in anatomy, regardless of their previous knowledge of the subject matter. Anatomy in Black has a gold foil embossed black hardback cover, with black sprayed edges and a gold ribbon making it a beautiful object to adorn any anatomy enthusiasts home, as well as the perfect present for those working in the field.

MSc Healthcare Management, Leadership and Innovation - Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry - PU PSMD

Our streamlined and carefully-constructed suite of postgraduate programmes  are now a perfect fit for the needs of the South West health and care economy , as we offer health and care professionals flexibility of choice at all levels across our postgraduate pathways.  Our aim is for our students to achieve qualifications which are relevant and highly useful to their working lives.

MSc Healthcare Management, Leadership and Innovation - Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry

In November we launched our new MSc in Healthcare Management, Leadership and Innovation.  This programme is unique to the South West as it offers the very latest thinking and application of leadership, management and innovation techniques and theory to the real and complex world of health and care.   In Spring 2016 the second module of this new MSc commences and offers our students an insider view of complex organisational structures, the cultures which underpin them and an understanding of how professional values shape everything we do.  

Remote and Global Healthcare studies continues to attract students seeking a dynamic understanding of what it is to practise clinically in extreme and isolated environments.  We are proud of our heritage in this regard, having developed this programme originally for the international medical polar community.    Led by a GP with a lived experience of medical practice in Africa – it marks us out from other medical postgraduate institutions by quite a long chalk. 

Clinical Education at all levels continues to attract a wide audience and we’re making changes to the programme to ensure that it remains relevant and insightful with regard to the understanding of how health and care professionals learn and develop.

Other news since our last article in PH Online includes our success in bidding for the South West Deanery tender for the delivery of Professional and Generic Skills training for doctors working right across the territory of the former Severn and Peninsula Deaneries.  We collaborated with the University of Bristol’s Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry in this bid, and we are joint owners of what is rapidly proving to be a sell-out programme.    Using clinical tutors wherever possible, we’re offering doctors a comprehensive programme of development to enhance their understanding of professionalism, medical ethics, leadership and management, complex communications and the tricky world of finance and economics in health.

    Dr Burzynski Petition

    The Texas State medical board is trying to revoke Dr Burzynski’s license to practise

    medicine because he is curing cancer, which isn’t very profitable for the big drug companies. A camera crew was sent down to document the demonstration for this cause so that they could share the Truth with the world. Ty Bollinger has asked Positive Health to please help them make this video viral by watching and sharing the link far and wide on all your social networking pages. After watching, if you feel inspired, there is a petition on change.org

    that you can sign to support Dr. Burzynski. The only way this corruption will end is if we educate ourselves and the ones we love, as together, we can and will make a difference.

    Placebo Effect Ruled Out for Healing’s Effectiveness

    Recipients of Reiki, Healing, Hypnotherapy, Reflexology and Yoga, among most other complementary therapies organizations, have received a boost in confidence about the efficacy of their chosen practices, following latest scientific research ruling out the placebo effect. Peer review published research recently presented to MPs in Westminster by the University of Northampton and the Confederation of Healing, tested non-contact healing in a series of separate trials on plants, cells, seeds, small animals and humans. The results uncovered a fascinating phenomenon: When healing intent was given to each of these categories, they produced an independent positive result.

    Progesterone Supplements Outcomes for Women with Recurrent Miscarriages

    New research from the University of Birmingham has shown that progesterone supplements in the first trimester of pregnancy do not improve outcomes in women with a history of unexplained recurrent miscarriages. The findings published recently in The New England Journal of Medicine, mark the end of a five year trial and provide a definitive answer to 60 years of uncertainty on the use of progesterone treatment for women with unexplained recurrent losses. The study of 826 women with previously unexplained recurrent miscarriages, showed that those who received progesterone treatment in early pregnancy, were no less likely to miscarry than those who received a placebo.

    New Artisan Vegan Meat

    Sggaia Foods, a small Scottish vegan food business based in Paisley was founded by Italian expats Hilary and Alberto. They have announced the arrival of Mheat, a revolutionary plant based food which is high in protein, low in fat and full of flavour. Made from nine recognizable ingredients, in a time of growing demand for valid, meatless eating options, Mheat has all the qualities to revolutionise how vegan cooking is currently viewed. Mheat is not a ready meal; it does not emulate the taste and texture of a specific animal produce, nor does it identify with being a vegan replacement or substitute. Instead, Hilary and Alberto have been focusing on making it an independently versatile savoury and tasty cooking ingredient which will re-dimension home cooking in meatless terms.
