Separating Doctors from Pharmaceutical Companies

This New York Times editorial tells us that the problem of an inappropriate liaison between doctors and the drug companies is now clearly on the table. It is about time that the doctors began to honor their oath of "First Do No Harm."

I came across this article and it is nicely written and one can even go back and read Hahnemann's original thoughts on how to treat burns. He did not suffer fools lightly and his letter is a response to a Doctor who had prescribed cold applications to burns. It seems that actually hot water or hot flame is better for a burn and seems to encourage the healing. It is worth knowing or at least in my life there have been times when knowing how to treat a burn would have been good to know. Have a look as it is well documented.

Join the army!!! Be counted.

I have joined a group: www.Avaaz.org They peacefully support humane action worldwide. For Myanmar, Tibet, Zimbabwe and other situations of concern. By joining you can add your name to each petition that supports by thousands of names and become and are a real voice.

I wrote the below to add support for a clear recognition of the dangers of the large corporations and their allies.

Harsh as it sounds I have to agree with Sadun. I am in Canada doing my best to promote homeopathy and Bach Flower remedies and the created resistance to homeopathy by the medical/pharmaeceuticals is clear and continuing. I am in the midst of reading The Homeopathic Revolution by Dana Ullman.
His book is a clear history and supports your thesis completely by its contents. Remembering always that Homeopathy is cheap, safe and effective and these humane attributes make it the enemy of the medical/pharmaceutical group.
It is only through public awareness can we grow the alternate world and so like cream we must rise to the top with support from groups like Avaaz. I am very pleased you are here.

Waking up at 4 am and wondering what to do

The last few nights I have woken around 4 or 5 am and then been restless. I even got up once and just began my day. I don't know why this is happening but last night I woke at 4 and went to the bathroom and when I came back my mind was going a hundred miles an hour. I tried an old trick of just watching my breath but nothing seemed to be working. I lay and tossed a while longer and remembered my own pocket pack. I wondered if I should take Coffea #6 for my overactive mind or Nux Vomica #8 for overwork and waking with a mind full of thoughts. I opted for the #8 and I cannot remember the process of going to sleep again but I woke at 8 and felt refreshed.
