I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

Homeopathy is a very safe holistic remedy, at worst it wont have any effect and at best it can make a fantastic difference. How effective it is depends on how much organic change has taken place in the tissues, but even that being so, it can make such a difference palliatively.

The remedies I am giving here are what's known as 'Polycrests'. Polychrests are the best known and most often used remedies, especially in constitutional prescribing. They correlate with personality archetypes .e.g. Nux-vomica is known as the businessman's remedy and Pulsatilla as the whingy child's remedy, and Chamomilla is the well known fractious teething baby, but this is only a tiny part of their picture. They're among the earliest remedies to have been discovered and therefore the remedies that have been tried and tested for the longest, with the greatest depth of study and understanding You will notice that a few of them are also in the basic remedies section. Like other remedies polychrests can be used for both acute and constitutional prescribing.

Chamomillia can be used for the kind of ache that seems to go on and on, whereby it makes you restless and irritable.

However the two main homeopathic remedies regularly prescribed are these two below:

Rhus Toxicodendron Affects fibrous tissue markedly - joints, tendons, sheaths - aponeurosis, etc., producing pains and stiffness. Post-operative complications. Tearing asunder pains. Motion always "limbers up" the Rhus patient, and hence he feels better for a time from a change of position.

Ruta Gravolens
Acts upon the periosteum and cartilages, eyes and uterus. Complaints from straining Flexor tendons especially. Tendency to the formation of deposits in the periosteum, tendons, and about joints, especially wrist. Over strain of ocular muscles. All parts of the body are painful, As if bruised

There are a couple of other remedies I would also suggest one is Arnica, for a bruising type of pain or if when trying to sleep the bed feels too hard. The other is Bellis Perennis which is for a deep aching pain similar to the type of aches if you have over done the gardening.

The standard dosage is 6C for chronic ailments and 30C for more acute. This article is only a tiny taster of the vast array of the fantastic abilities of Homeopathic medicine.

I did find this interesting article about Fibromyalgia.

If you feel pain all over your body, muscles ache all over and you frequently feel exhausted and unrefreshed even after a sleep. Also there are these points in your body where slight pressure causes severe pain and it so happens that even after numerous tests no diagnosis has ever been confirmed. If this sounds familiar, you may have fibromyalgia.

What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic disorder although it resembles arthritis due to excessive pains, it is not at all like arthritis. It does not cause any damage or inflammation of joints, muscles and tissues.
Widespread muscle pain, fatigue, and multiple tender points are few of the important symptoms that often characterize the disorder. Tender points are specific places on the body where even slightest pressure causes extreme pain?they can be present on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, and upper and lower extremities.
As more medical advancement is being made to understand this strange disorder it is becoming more and more evident that sleep plays an important role in this disease. Usually people with fibromyalgia seem to wake up with tired-up feeling even though they seem to sleep enough. This morning fatigue is being linked to a kind of sleep disorder where a person is not able to go into deep sleep. Recent medical studies have suggested that this sleep problem is due to alpha wave interrupted sleep pattern, a condition where deep sleep is interrupted often by bursts of activity in the brain similar to wakefulness. So people suffering from fibromyalgia are deprived from this restorative phase of sleep.
In addition to the above mentioned symptoms those suffering from fibromyalgia may show a wide array of symptoms-, morning stiffness, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, painful menstrual periods, numbness or tingling of the extremities, restless legs syndrome, temperature sensitivity, memory problems, depression or a variety of other symptoms

What causes fibromyalgia?
Although it is still unclear as to what causes this disease, some evidence points towards its association with emotional or physical stressful events. Some researchers link this disease to other auto-immune disorders. They believe that those suffering disorders such as arthritis etc. are more likely to develop it. This disorder is more prevalent in females.
Homeopathy and fibromyalgia.
The treatment available with conventional medical system is just palliative, where as Homeopathy offers an effective form of treatment, aiming at curing the disorder. This statement is based on a hardcore research done by the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, United States . This study involved patients affected with fibromyalgia; they were selected beforehand according to symptoms referring to a specific homeopathic medicine. The results showed a significant superiority of the homeopathic treatment, as regards pain, the quality of sleep and the overall condition.
Homeopathic treatment in such disorders is based on assessing one individual group of symptoms and thereby finding the most suitable medicine. Mental and physical make-up both are taken into consideration while prescribing. It is this holistic approach that gives homoeopathy an edge over the conventional system.
Reduce stress levels
As stress causes an increase in the symptoms of fibromyalgia, make sure to reduce your stress levels. Also make sure to follow a regular daily routine as people who tend to reduce their physical work due to pain, end up suffering more.
Getting enough sleep
Ensure adequate sleep in order to reduce fatigue. Follow a regular pattern in going to bed and getting up at the same time each day and limiting daytime napping
Regular exercise
Although initially the exercise would increase the symptoms, but eventually regular exercise would lead to reduction of the symptoms
Eat right
Having a regular balanced diet is essential in fighting all chronic disorders, especially if one suffers from irritable bowel syndrome along with.
Adjust your activities
Keep your daily activities on an even level. If you exert too much on a good day, you might have too many and severe bad days.

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
