      join the famous five in an adventure ,a well written story.

      I noticed some Enid Blyton books in one of the many charity shops we have in Haywards Heath town center,and started to read Her books although I am older now.
      I used to read Her books in the library lesson in Senior School .
      I am now enjoying Her books as much as I did then ,she is a superb writer .
      the first one i read was:*Five go down to the sea*I couldnt have a holiday this year ,so I enjoyed sharing the description of the famous fives holiday.
      The setting was in Cornwall on Tremannon Farm.
      The farmers wife is a wonderful cook ,you can almost taste the food with Enids descripton .They started with high tea with salad new potatoes ,a huge ham home made salad cream ,with fruit cake to finish,with cherry tart,they had a difficult journey to get there so enjoyed this meal very much.
      Dick, julian ,Anne ,George,(Georgina) shh dont let Her hear,she is a tomboy and prefers the boys name .Not forgetting Timmy their dog.
      They are all set for an adventure as usual ,a strange light in a tower that is nearly a ruin,they find out more from a boy called Yan and His grandfather .
      it involves ancient wreckers wont tell you to much.
      The farm also have some rather strange visitors called the Barnies vey like circus folk ,there is never a dull moment in this
      story ,with enids talent of making the reader feel almost as if they are participating, this is a very good book.

      identify these substances ,and deal with them with diet.

      All these chemicals that are called POPS ,act as irritants to humans and animals ,we inhale them or eat them unknowingly in our food .
      Some are now banned but are still in our environment,it was said in the 70s that DDT was in the ice at the poles .
      Many fish and seals etc have developed strange illnesses,because of these.
      Some of these pollutants :Lead ,Mercury,Cadmium,Arsenic,Aluminuim,these enter the food chain via the ground in food and water.
      Lead ,chlorine ,dioxins ,sulphur,we can add to these some greenhouse gases Carbon dioxide,methane,nitrous oxide ,clorofluorocarbons aircraft are responsible for these.

      see :www.http//airsite.unc.edu/facts ,
      and some others, some of these already mentioned:e 1998 Aarhus Protocol on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs)

      The Executive Body adopted the Protocol on Persistent Organic Pollutants on 24 June 1998 in Aarhus (Denmark). It focuses on a list of 16 substances that have been singled out according to agreed risk criteria. The substances comprise eleven pesticides, two industrial chemicals and three by-products/contaminants. The ultimate objective is to eliminate any discharges, emissions and losses of POPs. The Protocol bans the production and use of some products outright (aldrin, chlordane, chlordecone, dieldrin, endrin, hexabromobiphenyl, mirex and toxaphene). Others are scheduled for elimination at a later stage (DDT, heptachlor, hexaclorobenzene, PCBs). Finally, the Protocol severely restricts the use of DDT, HCH (including lindane) and PCBs. The Protocol includes provisions for dealing with the wastes of products that will be banned. It also obliges Parties to reduce their emissions of dioxins, furans, PAHs and HCB below their levels in 1990 (or an alternative year between 1985 and 1995). For the incineration of municipal, hazardous and medical waste, it lays down specific limit values.


      All animals and humans are exposed to these chemicals ,so no wonder we have an epidemic of Cancer ,caused by irritation of bodily tissue ,the body acts to protect by overgrowth of said tissue.
      Also millions worldwide are affected by respiratory illnesses
      like asthma because of these airbourne pollutants.

      The Earth needs a good spring clean doesnt it ?
      If you want to help your health Organic rice,vegetables,and beans will help ,for 4 days a week ,I dont recommend fasts ,because we start to put toxins into our bloodstream

      I am personally being affected by more of a toxic load because a near neighbour of mine is dumping poisons in my garden back and front ,in the form of Sulphuric acid ,and chlorine sprayed onto my walls and windows late at night ,through His highpower hose .

      as pionted out some of the substances mentioned are not organic but inorganic ..,but they are in our environment too ,and effect por food like the use of plastics.

      I took the remedy Dioxin as I had spent years near this pollutant ...and what did it do gave me a form of influenza ...i had a fever for 2 days a very high one ...I wonder ,if some of these flus ???


      I have been to the Police, the Council,and Environmental Authority for West Sussex,and nothing has been done about this 2 year old problem .
      Also John Prescotts office .If anyone has the answer to dealing with this pollution I would be glad to hear from them.

      I believe only God has the full answer see Revelation 11vs 18.

        The update report by CNN showing the problems and bravery of the people in Parkistan which are ongoi

        Cnn is a U.S. based world news channel ,thats why I like it.
        **************************************************************
        Some reports are live .It does give a global service reporting on world sport and world weather .Also the scenic photography helps us to get to know what different places in the world look like .
        **************************************************************
        There was a moving report yesterday about a mother that is donating some nerves out of Her arm to help Her sone have a nerve transplant,she is quoted as saying she would have Her arm off if necessary ,it not known what the result of this surgery is yet,at John Hopkins hospital.
        ************************************************************
        Other sections of this News channel are:Business Traveller ,and the a Science report section and reports from different countries including Europe ,and the middle East more or less every country in the world.
        There are some reports under Insight on the current News .
        ********************************************
        CNN reported on the Earthquake in Parkistan, two days ago on The 13th of November.
        The News program was entitled :*Faces of the Earthquake*.
        Showing those faces of the people that survived ,still facing their plight no their problems are not over.They are living some of them in makeshift tents,the weather is becoming colder,and they face the possibility of a severe winter.
        CNN showed how they are still pulling people out of the rubble,some 700 children are under there,35,000 have already died so far this report shows.
        It is heart breaking to see Mothers crying over their loss.
        One little boy was interviewed he had seen His classmates lost,He was pulled out.He isnt physically injured but He shows psychological injuries by what He says:*I think I am dead*,then He smiles,He is learning to laugh again.A reporter said of Him *a smile from somewhere that cant be touched and it breaks my heart*.
        What a brave little boy,he is an inspiration to all that experience suffering.

        Some of these people are being airlifted in Helicopters.
        For the rest they have little food or water,they have to walk four miles for water.

        CNN also showed the terrible injuries they were coping with,some festering.(they could use a homeopathic remedy called Gunpowder and others.)
        In another place they showed a Tent Village.
        Well done CNN for giving us an up to date picture.
        They are still having daily aftershocks .
        ***********************************************************
        Since I wrote this review CNN has reported that there has been a Quake conference about how to help the Victims of this terrible earthquake ,53billion pounds has been pledged to help the people in Parkistan.
        Also this week CNN are having a feature program about the Middle East .


        These poor people are now in my daily prayers.
        Almighty God is going to wipe the tears out of many peoples eyes in the near future see book of Revelation 21 1-5 .By removing the things that cause Suffering on this Earth.
        Jesus also foretold a general Ressurection of all in the grave ,in the gospel of John Chapter 5 verse 28,29.
        You might like to read the signs Jesus gave in Matthew 24.
        Millions are now putting their faith in Gods coming Kingdom,
        Jehovahs witnesses freely give their time discussing the Bible
        and its promises with anyone that asks.

          about how Drosera worked on my choking cough

          Last Saturday I was hit by one of the many bugs that loiter
          to catch us when we least expect them .
          I had felt very well the day before ,I had been helping my son
          while he was suffering from pluerisy.I gave Him some homeopathic medicine some I had sucess with years ago with the same illness Bryonia for one.
          He is now well again .
          Back to me I had just been up to my local shop ,and had called Fluffy in because fireworks were begining ,all of a sudden I was unable to swallow ,and had a pain as if I had swollen glass.The first remedy I took was Pulsatilla 30c a homeopathic remedy ,this was because my nose felt very stuffed up ,so it was my first choice.By the next morning I could swallow again thank goodness.
          I had also deliberately stayed without food for 24 hours and let the fever I had run its course ,this is the quickest and safest way to lose a virus.Also a good tip of how to recover from Influenza.
          Well my sore throat developed into a persistant irritating cough ,making me feel as if I was going to choke.So I rang my Doctor who is also a Homeopath to check with Him about the next remedy,we need to seek help when we are ill even if we have some Knowledge of Homeopathy ,because the illness disturbs our focus.He said you have chosen well up to now ,but try some Drosera.So I rang the Homeopathic pharmacy,and ordered some that night it worked!!!!
          Yes I know I need to tell you more about Drosera :the homeopathic remedy is taken from the *Sundew* plant a carnivourus insect insect eating plant ,likle cures like so it helps to expel sticky mucus out of the throat particularly,you know that feeling that you could choke because it wont come up Drosera really helps this,it is also a remedy for whooping cough ,and some forms of tuberculosis.
          some other symptoms it can help are pain in the thighs,wjich I have had too and lame feelings in limbs ,we get these with bad virus symptoms dont we and or Influenza.
          The Sundew is put in a machine by the homeopathic pharmacy,and by a process of dilution the energy of the plant is extracted that energy matches exactly the energy of my symptoms so enables my body to expel the pernicius one,the symptoms of my choking cough....working on the principle of particle Physics like will remove like.

          Here is a link that will give you acsess to more information :
          http://www.internethealthlibrary.com/hom-library/drosera.htm

          One more thing this route takes a little longer than antibiotics or penicillin,but removes the raging beast without any side effects.Also Coffee stops homeopathic remedies working ,and avoid peppermints.
          to be cont********

              An Artistic Film :The Village.


              >This film is full of suggestion ,which is a lot like the imagination of a young child.Our imagination is never as active than when we are young is it.
              >I have been lost twice in a wood in the dark, the village has graphic scenes like this .Once i was 6 years old coming back from a fancy dress party and managed to lose the people that were looking after me .I had to go through a small wood in the dark to reach my house .My mother was a housekeeper in a Stately Home at the time called Buckingham House.
              I followed my nose and found my way through the small wood in the grounds,I remember the feeling this gave me.
              The second time I was lost in the pitch dark was when my cat was stuck up a very high tree in a private wood .I was with some relatives ,i managed to drop the only torch we had ,very frightening.we found our way just after .
              siomilar feelings are evoked by the film *The Village* ,with one addition the girl in the wood is blind ,she has gone to maybe placate some creatures dressed in red that dwell next to the Village.

              You are like a spectator while watching this film ,I was intruiged by it because i live in a Village and near 2 woods .
              The tension slowly builds up as the film progresses giving us to chance to get to know the people ,their likes and dislikes and interactions .one night they all go into hiding as something approaches .
              Unless you like symbolism and supprise endings you might be disappionted ,I wasnt because I like this type of film .it resembles those artistic picture in an Art Gallery that are whatever you decide they mean .
              This is a very artistic film with a play on colours, symbolism,and Psychology .It has some good actors and actresses with Sigouney Weaver,William Hurt ,Adrien Brody and Bryce Dallas Howard.

                You have heard of sponsoring a Child,and sponsoring a Cat,but how about sponsoring a Dog.

                *******************************************************
                The other day while shopping,I met a pleasnt man in our shopping Precinct in Haywards Heath.He was introducing people to an organisation,that rescues and helps dogs called
                *Dogs Trust*.

                On the leaflet He gave me ,is a gallery of Dog photos,with their names and profile by each one,and where you can visit them and some can be taken for walkies.Some cant be visited because they are too traumatised ,or have health problems like allergies,we are told about this on each profile.This is if you decide to become a sponsor of a particular dog.At least you get a letter from the one that cant be visited .

                Just to name a few on the leaflet there is *Mia* a Husky ,with baby blue eyes,she suffers with a skin condition,but can be taken for a walk.Next comes *Sam*,He cant be walked or visited,as He has agoraphobia ,arhhh poor boy.Both these two are in Snetterton.

                Then there is *Kenco*,from Darlington,He can be visited and walked.*Lazloe*is in Canterbury,a Doberman,He can be visited and walked.Next comes *Harry*,a terrier cross
                in Kenilworth .*Harry* cant be visited He isnt good with people ,probably has his reasons.

                On the leaflet there is even a mystery dog.That is 24 dogs in all.
                They are all saying *Please be my friend* ,with their appealing eyes for those that are not able to keep a Pet this is a good arrangement .

                If you would like more information,there is a phone number 020 78370006 also a website www.sponsoradog.org.uk to set up your sponsorship.You are sent a sposor card with your dogs photo on it,you recieve a magazine called Wag three times a year.You recieve news from your new chum,and a car sticker, ,and regular photos.

                Org address :17 Wakely Street ,London EC1v 7RQ reg charityno227525

                Woof !!!!!! Please sponsor us .:)

                  Disadvantages

                  Some scientists have been warning us ,about the consequences of polluting our environment,some say its safe to pollute and others say its dangerous.The carbon we are producing stays there for a hundred years in the environment, so a program on Sky Tv informed us a year or so ago.

                  Another program recently informed us that as the ice is melting at the poles and diluting,the salt out of sea water this is changing the magnetic field in the sea that helps to control the weather such as the gulf stream ,and this is going haywire at times.
                  Interesting link that shows results of the sea warming up:http://www.foe.co.uk/pubsinfo/briefings/html/20001002143435.html

                  As another dooyooer rightly said we are taking a lot of oil out of the ground when it is needed as a buffer between the plates of this earth.

                  I and a friend were talking about this the night before the Tsunami,and then we all woke up to this disaster the next day.

                  So the earth is re-acting to mankinds misuse of its recources.So we cant Blame Almighty God.

                  In the begining of Human History,we are told in The Holy Bible ,that everything was good ,then someone threw a spanner in the works Satan ,who misused his free will and misled the first humans .Almighty God whose name is Jehovah ,devised a way of saving Adams children ,and rescuing their descendants one day .
                  If you read Genesis chapter 3 you can see the first prophecy ,that a Messiah would come and that Satan would have him put to death and one day after Jesus was ressurected He would remove Satan and put this world right .This would also mean putting all the damage that man had caused right.
                  This would be brought about by the bringing in to being of a Government based in the Heavens to rule over this earth.See Revelation 21 1-5

                  Interestingly,The Earth used to have a watery shield in its upper atmosphere which shielded the Earth from Cosmic rays and kept an even temperature ,so no disasters back then.

                  No need for pollution, an even temperature was earthwide people lived longer too.

                  Then Satan struck another blow against God and Mankind ,He persauded some angels to cohabit with most women on earth and they produced hybrid children only noah and His family kept clear of this .After 120 years God Brought the global flood to protect the human family and their future of living once again in Paradise.
                  The flood waters quick froze at the poles,and this is the water that is now melting.
                  So who is to blame ,It speaks for it self doesnt it .
                  We all have the opportunty ,to inherit that apradise Earth which God is going to bring back very soon,but to inherit it we need to find out what our Creator wants us to do,and obey Him.Paddling our own canoe has not helped us has it .Its worth looking into and although frightening things will happen first ,we can have a hope for the future.
                  see Gospel of Luke 21 ,and Isiaih 65 vs17 onwards :see www.watchtower.org
                  for information on how to have a free Bible home discussion.

                    Disadvantages

                    They Live : I watched *They Live *a few years ago ,its a film that really sets one thinking. Ihave reason to believe the Author of the story wanted to make a piont about todays human society ,like many writers have ,like the story of Gullivers travels ,and Alice in wonderland.. ******************************************* Intro sees a church raided and boxes of sunglasses consficated,He manages to pick up a pair. ****************************************** its very clever in that it doesnt name the Religion that is showing people the truth, via special sun glasses.They are percieved as a threat ,and their permises are raided ,and the boxes of sunglasses are consficated. ************************************** Think of it whenever people get near to seeing clearly the true facts about the real truth ,all down through the ages ,they have been attacked and their property destroyed,so the use of sunglasses is a clever ploy in the plot of this story and film. ********************************* i found the effects of seeing hidden properganda,in newspapers and books on the shelves of supermarkets very good and amusing. The same for the people the drifter bumps into, he can see they are ugly and different once He is wearing the sunglasses. ***************************** He bumps into this intriuge,and then takes a pair out of a box thinking they were just ordinary glasses and then starts to see the world in a different form. I wont comment any more see if you can draw your own conclusions. Maybe we will see different things in this story. Remember the saying *Truth is stranger than fiction*. The Duke gives many more details His review is excellent.

                      This is in the wrong section a mistake easily made as it heads a list of PHobias:) Of all the the Phobias I that exist think *Social phobia* is the worst and most crippling ,and life destroying ,and also the most misunderstood in the UK. I am talking in general terms about it being misunderstood,because there are Forums on the internet that are there to help ,but like many mental and emotional illnesses it is not understood. *************************************************************** When we were teenagers ,we experienced shyness ,sometimes running to panic ,until we grew up and out of these feelings . people with S.A. Social anxiety ,as this condition is generally known,have these panicky feelings in socail settings all the time . Take the case of one of my near relatives <they managed to go to high school taking all the prizes in their last year ,because of very high exam marks.They then went to North London Polytechnic,and obtained an honours degree in applied economics.Then after graduation,this phobia was getting worse with a vengeance. When you are at College you tend to be in a protected structured environment,when you graduate that is suddenly taken away,and life takes on a different structure. Thats when Social phobia can be at its worst .You have moved away from your friends and so these phobic feelings can take on a new force. ****************************************************************************** In some ways *Males* find this harder to deal with ,because* their *social setting is less protected than females ,who are more social and dont get isolated so easily . Everyone expects men to be strong and confident ;with this phobia they cant be ,and the idea of girlfriends and marriage are an impossibility for some. So depression sets in ,and as there doesnt seem to be much therapy for this condition ,they just sink down into a pit of de
                      spair. There are quite a high number of sufferers of this condition ,in the U.S.there appear to be more Doctors that understand this condition ,i will be adding more soon..... Here is a very useful link for sufferers :http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2003-12/ace-wac120703.php this is on yahoos database,it links up to the U.S. and 3 phone numbers. Another tip :Pulsatilla 6c or 30c is a remedy ,that might help ,taken once a week . to be cont ,does anyone want to share experiences ,and offer help,in a group situation? Different ideas for helping social phobia /anxiety :Argent nit 30 take when having the worst symptoms *************************************************** If you feel very lacking in confidence Silicea 6x one dose in a day ....only take while the symptoms last this is advice for all remedies. It goes without saying eat an adequate diet Fish rice and chicken are good ,if you are vegetarian Organic rice and bread all vegetables ,cut down on potatoes .Nuts are good and sesame and sunflower seeds.Can be ground in grinder and made into sweet mixed with sugar or made into savoury burgers with some veg and sauteed . Adelle was right when she said we are what we eat and digest,this also affects our mental health we have to try different foods to see what suits us the best ,a food mix like I have suggested gives balance. Take in good thoughts into our minds too ,we are what we think :I personally find reading the Bible is a great comfort The Psalms and the book of Isaiah are very comforting when we are down.Psalm 139 shows how God knows us all individually and cares about us ,this Psalm makes particularly good reading in The Jerusalem Bible . ********************************************************************************** ******************* some useful links http://socialanxiety.factsforhealth.org/ their e mail: Email: info@factsforhealth.org Ma

This site also explains that the brain needs to be assisted to form new thought patterns. Everyone will be different though ,one type of therapy will suit some and vice versa ,I think,I agree with the idea of new thought patterns,again we are what we think. Another helpful link examining what this disorder actually is ,and how it can be helped. http://www.anxietynetwork.com/sphome.html it contains :: "Overcoming Social Anxiety: Step by Step" I think that it depends on what causes it for the individual, that determines which it is . Also there are different degrees of this slight, to severe,my relative hasnt lived a normal life yet due to their symptoms ,but as you can see from these links there is light at the end of the tunnel. sample statement by a sufferer :These are statements that helped me make progress against my social phobia...It doesn't matter what other people think about me.: *don't need anyone else's approval of anything I say or do. There will almost always be people out there who don't like me. This is totally normal. I don't need to be everyone's friend, or try to please other people so they will like me. I just need to be myself -- and if people don't like me for it, tough luck! It’s O.K. I don't care. They really aren't worth knowing any* ****** *I no longer want to feel ashamed about how I have reacted to situations in the past.
                      I've h ad some very painful experiences in my life, some as a result of social phobia and some not. The memories of these experiences no longer have the power to hurt me as they once did. I can benefit from these experiences, because now I can look back at them like old photographs. I will use them to learn and grow. I have become a better and stronger person because of these experiences*............... more to come: ****************************** Social Phobia is characterized by an intense fear of situations, usually social or performance situations, where embarrassment may occur. Individuals with the disorder are acutely aware of the physical signs of their anxiety and fear that others will notice, judge them, and think poorly of them. This fear often results in extreme anxiety in anticipation of an activity, a Panic Attack when faced with an activity, or in the avoidance of an activity altogether. Adults usually recognize that their fears are unfounded or excessive, but suffer them nonetheless. The worst part of this is I believe fear of interactions with the opposite sex ,fear of initiating conversations with same ,and other people . So another problem that arises is sufferers self medicating with alchohol,this eventually becomes tragic if not treated ending with liver failure,or suicide. In the UK there is not enough treatment available as far as I know ,I am going to gather more facts about this public consciousness needs to be awakened about this. Years ago there was more community ,that would have solved much of this problem,but this kind of Community is no longer existing in many places.Public forums on the internet have helped a bit ,but there is nothing like real contact. With all our communication ,we are still lacking ,for many thousands of people that suffer this phobia ,the trouble is its invisible to those not affected by it ,but the pe
                      rson who is feels these symptoms feels they can be seen.They cant unless there is severe stress. Thereapy lies in cognition ie percieving things in a different way ,as the above quote shows.(sample quote above) Another link ,with lote of ideas: http://www.adaa.org/AnxietyDisorderInfor/SocialPhobia.cfm Find on Yahoos database

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Here is one of the most useful books about Homeopathy:
                        Update at end of op ....I suffered a stroke and this treatment helped me.

                        I would like to share information about a homeopathic book all about case histories of Cancer sufferers that have been helped with this treatment .
                        The title is:*a Homoeopathic Approach to Cancer*This is a very useful book ,because there are so many who suffer with this condition today.There are many case histories that show
                        some cures ,not all the cases have total loss of this condition ,but one thing is shown for sure,their lives are lengthened ,and if they do die ,it is a merciful death with less suffering.
                        it is co-written by Dr A.U. RamakrishnanM.B.B.S.,M.f.Hom.(London),and Catherine R.Coulter.
                        Dr Ramakrishnan shows his special method with Homeoepathy in Chapter 3.

                        Chapter 4 Deals with types of Cancer that have responded well to remedies ,and the full case history for many types of Cancer including brain Cancer.
                        there is also a chapter on pain control in advanced stages of terminal Cancer ,these remedies can be more effective than morphine and dont forget there is no side effects .

                        Homeopathy certainly does work :to be cont:Well I can personally vouch for these remedies working A relative had a spiral fracture of the wrist and was in agony after the op to re-set this tried strong pain killers *which did not work,then Arnica 30 that took the pain away in minutes.
                        I have had asthma attacks that have soon responded to Arsen alb 6.
                        Also migraine that has responded to Belladonna Where i go half blind better within 5 minutes.
                        I did have panic attacks for a while responede to Arsen Alb 30 withing 10 minutes.
                        Homeopathy works on the principle of Like will remove like ..in particle physics this happens with like particles .
                        If you live in a high mobile phone usage area you will need to use a super magnet at times to get homeopathy to work ,as the EMF fields badly suppress the immune system I will put a link up for this soon ,d(ont wear near t

                        o heavy sunspot activity times .)
                        Organic rive and root vegetables can assist also as they regulate the body so well ,the rice is acid and alkaline just try all this if you are in pain and see how it works .Hypericum 200 has helped my recent back injury taken the pain away and is helping it to heal ,you carry on taking all the time the pain is there or yhe other symptoms then do stop dosing .
                        the book metioned above explains each step of the way in many cancers .to be cont.

                        In aswer to The drowningmans question some more relevant details:Thanks Andy,there are a lot of case histories in this book .Calendula tincture diluted ,stops bleeding in a cut immediatly,and protects the wound from tetanus,just put a compress containing this and press on cut or scratch with this.
                        When I was involved in a triple pile up ,the seatbelt hurt my neck I took belladonna 30 on the spot which took the swelling down ,I had whiplash of spine and neck .These took 6 months to get better ,but arnica relieved the pain.
                        I recently fell of a pair of steps onto my spine 3 ft,it has been a bad injury I took hypericum 200 ,because it also injured me internally improvement came ,a week after taking this round the clock and then I top up this whenthe discomfort comes back,I am better internally now.iII also take calcium and magnesium to help to heal this.I havnt needed any pain killers.I do use my magnet from time to time as well ,because we live in a sea of Electromagnetic waves ,which can inhibit ant treatment including homeopathy.
                        If hospitals used these remedies like Calendula there wouldnt be any superbugs.

                        Always stop taking once symptoms are relieved if you are treating injuries.
                        The idea is the remedy you are taking acte like a reflection of your symptom picture,if you dont stop you could bring your symptoms back.
                        The homeopath that wrote aformentioned book explains why he repeats dose on Cancer sufferers ,but you raelly need someone like
                        him to be in charge of your case ,because they have the experience.
                        An intensive care dept let me in to treat a friend once .I cant comment further
                        on this ,but some hospitals can see the benefits of homeopathy.
                        Arnica is very good for head injury.
                        I must state here that every case is individual ,and there is no medical treatment that can be garunteed 100 percent ,but homeopathy gives one a fighting chance and less suffering.

                        I suffered a stroke 6 weeks ago.Arnica saved my life ,after crashing onto the ground and having severe vertigo ,I took this every quarter of an hour .add more soon .

                          Online shops are very handy at times ,I have used the tesco ,online shopping facility ,Groceries delivered to your door . All you do is register and then order your shopping online ,for a nextday delivery . Very useful in hot weather and winter.. Then I tried Iceland......very useful all your weekly groceries ,I will put all their addresses down soon. Amazon is very convenient for ordering books ,I like American Authors, so this is a quick way of obtaining these books.You can preview books on this site too with pages of the book. There is another site I would like to mention called *Worldwideflowers co.uk* I have also visited their shop in Haywards Heath this week to buy some hyacinths ,a special treat each year ,and I was so impressed with this shop that I asked for further details. They have so many beautiful flowers from Lillies to roses daffodilles and many exotic plants ,some can be bought cut ,and others in pots and little wicker baskets. As they have a site for online ordering you can share this joy with me when you treat yourself,or your loved ones.

                            I wish I had studied to be a Solicitor,but not just for the reward of money. my aunt was just like me ,she was disabled with spina bifida,and while she was alive, she used to help what used to be called the *Claimants union* in the Brighton area. This was a charitable body that helped people that currently had no money ,and no food to get the benefit they needed,she met someone one day that was living on custard ,and soon got help for her. Im afraid there are not such charities around anymore,well there is the C.A.B .,they often lack knowledge needed I find . I had to spend 11 days pouring over law books to sort out the finer points of how to suceed to a secure tenancy about three years ago ,once again I couldnt find a legal aid Solicitor. There are still so many people still out there that need legal help and are not obtaining it. How do I know this because I have just spent several days trying to get a Solicitor for a relative ,that has been falsly accused ,you know how many people this happens to now if you have watched TV the last 3 days . I phoned about forty Solicitors ,and the law society,to no avail,then one kind Gentleman Solicitor told me why:because the Government isnt paying them enough.Is there any Solicitor out there ,that is dedicated to helping people for the love of it ? So this Career can be recomended especially for those that care about their fellow man I somehow think not ,thats what I would have loved to do . Incidentally the *which* guide books to law are good in your nearest library .

                              You all know I am an animal lover ,those of you that know me quite well. I know the RSPCA is an organisation that general ,is faultless in its work. Yesterday was different ,and not the norm for Them This is my personal experienvce,and I am still in shock!!!! ********************************************************* I phoned the RSpCA (,animal protection)yesterdaybecause 4 of the Cats have recieved injuries in unusual places .They came today one young woman ,who was, I thought quite rude to me ,she started talking to me as if i was neglecting my Cats even saying do you make sure they have water nearby.I asked Her if she had anymore questions to ask me,she said no.I said would you mind leaving now. Then followed a real fiasco :15 minutes later she came back with a policeman ,and 2 other women ,that turned out to be a nurse and veteriny doctor. I said what do you want ?The policeman said we want to come in to examine your animals,i said Im taking them to a Vet of my choice,the policeman said if you dont let us in I will break in, so I let them in and they all polled into my bedroom ,I nearly had a heart attack.They were all talking to me at once ,I kept on telling them to slow down and not talk to me at once. The RSpCa Inspector had lied to the police saying I wasnt co-operating . I have been using natural methods to get them better and they have been improving . This was all a misuse of power...it was extremly upsetting. Last year Heinde Had 2 injuries first his paw was cut with some kind of weapon ,I got that better with homeopathy,then he came home with His paw covered in tar ..this took me days to remove along with homeopathy .2 others died in mysterious circumstances ((in the past). Hence My call to them....now I have been treated like a criminal. Well what we really have in this experience of mine was an overre-action on the part of this inspector ,she took my anno
                              yance at being asked if I was fulfilling a very basic reqirement ie *do they have access to water *,as a signal that i was going to leave my animals untreated . I always get a vet to diagnose even if i am going to treat them with homeopathy,i have some very good textbooks written by a homepathic vet and have been using herbs and natural treatments for years.With sucess!!! They didnt have to treat me like someone they were investigating when I had sent for them myself,and it put me under a great deal of stress. Well I did take Freebie to the vet today ,reason i didnt before ,we were all knocked out by the heat.Also lack of funds todays treatment cost 20 pounds in Taxi fare and 99 pounds so far no mean amount to find. He has a bone tumour ,,I have 2 options : to have Him put to sleep ,or for him to have a new treatment in the UK ,already tried and tested in the U.S.it makes cancerous cells revert back to normal . in Humans and animals. I am taking the second ,of course if he takes a turn for the worse I will take the first. I do think He had an injury that turned cancerous,it has improved since my use of homeopathy and a theraputic magnet,the swelling has halved in size . 2 of the other had loss of fur overnight on He rear end ,as if shaved,and the other has has a swelling on Her tum...all there injuries happened together thats why I called the Royal Society for the protection of Animals in. i have spoken on the phone since to this Inspector and she said the society might help with some of the expence ,ofthe vets bill. i suppose alls well that ends well . For our friends in other Countries The RSPCA do investigate animal cruelty,and generally do a great job . if a domestic animal is found abandoned animal,they rescue ,and re-home it. it depends on other wildlife societies like *Carla lanes animal sanctuary *to help wounded birds etc .i have taken
                              a Ja y and a fieldmouse to Her . She is in great need of funds at the moment .I will put Her address up soon . ****************Update;Tues 2nd Sept 2003.********************* I had a home visit from the Vet and a nurse they said they were pleased to see Freebie has improved after Silicea 200 the there is less swelling and He has been running around. Molly also was better today . Heindies wound has healed now. Fluffy certainly has no flea allergy .She has been sweating profusely ,and has something that looks like glue in Her fur it could be bad scurfing ..I have been giving Her charcoal daily to remove poison ,I have had a sample of Her blood removed pending investigation,from I hope Sidneygee as He is an expert . Also a sample of Freebies blood which is being sent to a laboratory pending Him having a new treatment in the UK. The post delivered it too late:I had Freebie on a special diet ,and hoeopathic remedies known to treat bone Cancer .Osteosarcoma is the hardest Cancer to treat. We had a mobile mast near su for a year ,and dont forget an animal has less body size so they succumb to Cancer quicker. That is why i couldnt ultimately save Him from this perniceous disease ...the reason why His death took me by suprise is that homeopathic remedies can suddenly give the animal a quick death if there is no more hope,He only took 5 sconds to die with my comforting hand stroking him and Arsen Alb to take away his fear ...how i still grieve for him. I have a ruling: If any of the cats detiorirate they will have other treatment . I love animals so much i took a stray cat for treatment recently ,and also took a squirrel that was injured paying for this out of my own pocket (in the past.) to be cont update on this opinion:Because of incorrect data being put on my Vets treatment report Subsequent to my beloved Cats death ,one of my cats that has an allergy ha
                              s been tak en away fr om me .I am now trying to clear my name ,the Vet has helped me by amending this report .In this polluted world ,skin trouble in cats does not necessarily mean neglect . Particularly dioxins which cause a condition called Chloracne which causes great loss of fur. The amount of bonfires and fireworks used in this small country of ours up the level of this terrible poison. *********************************************************************** Another possibility is contact with an irritant ,my garden contains Ivy i did wonder if it could have been a poison of some kind I originally called the RSpCA in because they developed these symptoms overnight.Also I have had roadworks round me for about 3 years,so think about the result of this pollution on an animal...Lead and Sulphur ,and carbon monoxide,no wonder our animals are dieing!!! *********************************************************************** ********** * I know this organisation that has the Queen as its patron does admirable work ,but mistakes can be made in this case a grave mistake has been made ...as they are treating me as someone who neglects their animals ...you only have to look at my homepage to see this is untrue,I hope that soon this mistake can be rectified as i am innocent . Freebie unfortunately died from his very aggressive bone Cancer the other Sunday He took a sudden turn for the worse ,so I rang for Euthanasia,He died before the vet got here ,He just took 5 seconds to die ,with 5 short fits. The vet that came a woman put down an erroneous report ,saying that he was fitting and dying all day :totally untrue!!!! The vet that had been helping me previous to this has ammended the report. This has set up a chain of events,that have left me falsely accused and one of my cats has been taken away from me ,I hope to have Her returned under the P.A.C.E laws ,a soliciter is writing to the RSPCA f
                              luffy has had b ad fur loss and been shaved ,thats why I called them in .I fleacombed Her before this happened for an hour and only yeilded one flea.I am terribly upset . My cats have always been well cared for. I have written a poem about it : My Prayer tonight is for all the falsely accused people throughout the World, Some lose children ,animals ,and their dignity and good reputation . Law misused ,law abused ,by people that refuse to listen. Oh the faces that look to God,on which tears do glisten. I am like Rachel weeping for my child, in the form of a sensitive beautiful black cat called Fluffy,where are you my little black girl. Fluffy was returned to me tonight ,Her fur has regrown so thankyou RSPCA ,aand I have agreed to use homeopathy and orthodox medicine ,because in this polluted world our animals have a fight on their hands to stay healthy . I hope fireworks are banned from being used only on very special ocaisions. Motorists please dont run your engines unnessesarily ,save a life in not doing so animal and human.

                                Oh dear ,dooyoo,how does one express an opposing opinion ,without being catogorised as homophobic.Well here goes:I am opposed to Gay Marriages for the following reasons. 1.let me pose a question what would happen to the human race if everyone became homosexual ? 2.Their wouldnt be any children left,and the human race would soon become extinct,does this not tell us something. 3.History shows that society is not strengthened ,by the increase in gay people. Not that they should be persecuted ,that would not be right either. 4.As people they are very sensitive ,for the above reasons though we cannot normalise this ,because it goes against human nature. 5.We all desire to be loved ,this has become a loveless world,and it is understandable that people that I believe have become out of balance in what their gender should be ,have increased in the last 5o years. Nobody stops to ask why? I believe it has been caused by the amount of dioxins in the air ,products of incineration,it has diminished masculinity to such a degree ,there has been much infertility as a result. On the opposite pole women have some of them become more masculine in their outlook,and for some their gender.This has pushed more men into seeking men ,because they have this sensitivity.i dont mean all,but many.True some are born pointing in this direction true...but it isnt ther true nature or identity,for the first reson I give. Gay marriage supposes that this will produce faithfulness ,Gay relationships,can be as shaky ,as others are. Should they adopt ,i personally do not think this would be fair for all the above reasons,being gay people need to get back to their true identity . The fact that change of diet to a macrobiotic one ,and the use of 2 remedies Nat Mur for men and Sepia for women,only a qualified Homeopath should be sought if you want to test this out. In the case of diet a qualified naturopath.
                                None of these word are said in critism ,but I am scientifically dealing with known facts. Update : these links show how dioxins can change the hormone balance and have a devatating affect on fertility:tp://www.netdoctor.co.uk/menshealth/facts/malefertility.htm link to below : http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/menshealth/facts/malefertility.htm http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/menshealth/facts/malefertility.ht http://www.biomedcentral.com/news/archive.asp?year=2003&month=4 Spironolactone Affects hormone production Fluid retention Sulphasalazine Reduces sperm count and quality Ulcerative colitis Environmental toxins and radiation Several media reports have highlighted research studies showing that sperm counts are falling and that male fertility is declining, possibly because of environmental pollution. A similar number of studies have shown no change whatsoever, but these do not make such good headlines and often fail to be reported in the media. Is male fertility in decline? Because evidence exists both one way and the other, the answer must be 'maybe'! One thing is certain, and that is that many more environmental toxins that might affect fertility exist now than 50 years ago. Potential toxin Origin Effect Alkylphenols Industrial and domestic detergents Hormonal disrupter Bisphenol A Lacquers to coat foods; dental treatments Hormonal disrupter Dioxins Paper production; transformer disposal Hormonal disrupter Organochlorine pesticides (Lindane, DDT, etc,) Lindane used on cereals, soft fruits, cabbage Hormonal disrupter Phthalates Plastics industry Hormonal disrupter, testicular toxin Phyto-oestrogens (found in certain types of plant products) Some soya products Hormonal disrupter Vinclozolin Fungicide used on foods Hormonal disrupter please read the other links to get a rounded out report
