NEW UNPUBLISHED MEDITATIVE REMEDIES.

FERTILITY THERAPEUTICS.

A one day fundraising seminar with Colin Griffith

Saturday 20th of September 2014

10am-4pm

Colin Griffith, MCH, HMA is a highly respected homoeopath, writer, teacher and practitioner with more than 20 years of experience. He studied at the College of Homoeopathy in London (1986-1989). In 1999 Colin, Janice Micallef and the late Martin Miles founded the Guild of Homoeopaths, a 2 year post graduate course which was the outcome of a meditation group dedicated to the research and meditative provings of new remedies. He has been a member of this proving circle for 20 years. Some of the results of these provings have been published in his two volumes of The New Materia Medica (Watkins). Remedies like Ayahuasca, Sycamore Seed, Rose Quartz and many others are among the results. More information about Colin is HERE

Galahomeopathy is delighted to welcome back one of our most popular speakers - Colin Griffith. Colin has not been teaching much recently as he has been focusing on writing books. So we are very excited at this rare chance to hear Colin speak again with us at Galahomeopathy. Colin's seminars are always very informative, knowledgeable and fascinating, as well as been in high demand. 

On this seminar Colin will look at the topic of fertility using new remedies and share his vast clinical experience to assist delegates improve their knowledge and have more tools for patients that come for help with this very common issue.

In addition Colin will present three new and as yet unpublished meditative provings remedies: African Ivory, Juniperus Communis and Black Tourmaline

"African Ivory: this remedy helps us to face reality; it discourages prevaricating and prevents us from procrastinating where the effort to move on is so great. It is also one of the best remedies for dental problems."

"Juniperus Communis: is closely related to Thuja and Cupressus. Juniper is a remedy of separation; there is a desire to distance oneself from a world that is too abrasive and overwhelming in one who is doubtful of being able to cope. There is a profound sense of not being able to match one’s full potential caused by a lack of self-discipline and the tendency to self-sabotage."

 

"Black Tourmaline: here is a remedy of fears; fear of disease in the vital organs; fear of change; fear of failure. Yet it is a remedy that facilitates change by reordering muddled, confused thinking and calming the ‘monkey mind’.

Meditative provings have been around for over 20 years and  have gained credibility amongst homeopaths and teachers worldwide. In clinical practice these remedies, such as Ayahuascha, Sycamore Seed, Buddleia, Thymus Gland, Emerald and many others, are proving invaluable to match the sheer complexity of our 21st century patients' situations.

Bella

This seminar has been organised to raise money for Bella Griffith, Colin's daughter and an experienced homeopath, who has volunteered to teach a course in Mozambique linked with the Swaziland Homeopathy Project (SHP). The SHP charity provides affordable Homeopathic treatment and advice to local communities that have, amongst other illnesses, been devastated by HIV, AIDS and Tuberculosis. SHP has extended its outreach clinics to a remote area of Mozambique which is where Bella will be based for a month at the end of this year. 

The course she will teach has been specifically designed for Africa and for people in the villages to learn the basic principles of Homeopathy; with a view to equip and empower the locals to improve the health of their communities in a natural and inexpensive way. 

Once there living costs for Bella will be minimal but we are hoping that this seminar will raise enough money to cover her flight and expenses and also some funds for SHP.

The Swaziland Homeopathy Project (SHP) started in 2008 by providing homeopathy to women and children in rural areas but is now providing this support to over 6,000 patients across Swaziland.

The vision of the SHP is to establish a permanent, affordable, integrated, holistic health service for women, men and children in all regions of Swaziland regardless of their HIV status and therefore improve the life expectancy of the people of Swaziland.

Access to health care can be a real challenge in Swaziland. There are financial and logistical issues that mean not everybody receives the healthcare that they need or deserve.

The statistics for HIV/AIDS in Swaziland are improving but it is still a dismal picture, with over a quarter of the population testing HIV positive. The demands on the healthcare system are significant with life expectancy just 49 years and 34.1% of young people (aged 15—24) tested HIV positive.

Despite the availability of AntiRetroviral Therapy (ART) and other conventional medical support, there are still a significant number of patients who are unwell and therefore unproductive. The SHP has observed that homeopathic treatment combined with conventional ART has had a synergistic benefit to HIV/AIDS patients. Patients report improved general wellbeing, are able to manage ART side effects better and can be more productive in their day-to-day activities. SHP has identified increased productivity as the main indicator of improvement of patients' health, particularly by the women working with the handcraft projects. This data is verified by a 5 year statistical analysis of database patient scores completed in April 2014.

Since June 2008 there has been an increasing demand for the clinics. The queues are becoming unmanageable. Patients are attending the twice weekly Mbabane town clinics from neighbouring South Africa and from all over Swaziland, with many travelling great distances. 

In 2011 the s a h e e Foundation sponsored a 4 year professional training of 10 Swazi homeopaths who will be able to continue running and building SHP not only for their own livelihoods but also to continue to support Swaziland’s communities. These trainees graduate on August 9th 2014.

In 2013 SHP received funding from the US Ambassador's Grant on Gender to train rural women as counsellors to provide social support in their communities. This will be completed by the end of this year, 2014.

The SHP has been funded by donations from organizations (primarily the s a h e e Foundation) and many individuals. All funds go directly into the day to day coordination of the project and the project itself has been largely run on a volunteer basis.

Committed to monitoring and evaluation SHP created a database based on a scoring system of an individual’s wellbeing. By monitoring the effectiveness of homeopathic treatment, patient demand and the individual needs of each outreach and community clinic our services can be optimized.

Statistical analysis of the database and scoring system shows consistent improvement of the patient’s overall wellbeing and individual symptoms. At the first follow-up consultation an average of:

-75% of the patients report an improvement in their overall health scores and
- 65% of the individual symptoms that are scored show improvement.

An integrated Health Centre is the next step for SHP. This will be the culmination of six year's hard work with the aim of self-sustainability always at the forefront. Patients will then have affordable access to all modalities of healthcare in one location and will receive the most effective and appropriate care tailored to their needs. SHP has located a site to build this centre and plans to implement the building process in the near future.

It is the Project goal that by the end of 2015 the it will achieve self sustainability and that the clinics will generate sufficient income to sustain the livelihoods of the Swazi homeopaths. SHP is delighted that the British/Swazi actor, Richard E Grant has agreed to lend us his support and become our Patron."
