It is a commonly held misconception that the brain is beyond repair. Even the medical establishment has asserted that once we kill brain cells, they are gone forever. The fact is, the brain can repair itself, and as science is now proving, there is real benefit to simple practices that can help keep our brains sharp and elastic throughout our lifetime.
for action to prevent naturopathic doctors from educating their patients about vaccine concerns, including removing their ability to self-regulate.

This article was based on a study titled "Injecting Doubt: Responding to the Naturopathic Anti-Vaccination Rhetoric", written by Caulfield and two co-authors and published in the Journal of Law and the Biosciences.
The team examined the websites of 300 naturopathic clinics in BC and Alberta and found that 53 of them expressed 'anti-vaccination' content, "in other words, a significant number of naturopaths – that is, members of a provincially regulated health profession – are explicitly and publicly spreading nonsense about vaccination" and that this 'must stop', and are calling for deregulation of naturopathic medicine or at least third-party (read: Big Pharma) oversight.
One week ago my 19-year-old daughter Ariana had three wisdom teeth removed, one of them impacted. Wisdom tooth removal is something of a rite of passage for teens these days, especially if they've had braces and don't want their teeth to shift.
I had my own wisdom teeth removed when I was still in naturopathic college, about 27 years ago. At the time we had just learned about Arnica and other homeopathic remedies for the use in surgery. I used Arnica 200CH and 1M with great success at the time, suffering very little swelling or discomfort, much to the surprise of a classmate who described quite an ordeal of swelling and pain after her extractions.
Homeoprophylaxis, also known as HP, is a safe and effective form of immune education to protect from infectious disease. In countries such as India, where HP is sanctioned by the government, doctors are able to administer HP openly and achieve outstanding results. Homeoprophylaxis costs less than pennies per person due to the fact that very little source material can produce enough HP for thousands, if not millions, of people.

About 170 years ago our ancestors forced the repeal of licensing laws which had created a monopoly over the practice of medicine for orthodox physicians. Ordinary people, farmers, artisans, tradesmen and others got together and forced politicians to act on their behalf. They were tired of bloodletting, and harsh medications like mercury compounds that ruined their teeth and weakened their bodies.
They opted for kinder and gentler alternatives with lower casualty rates, particularly the newly introduced homeopathy. They were impressed that tiny doses of medicine were able to cure cholera much better than the massive doses used by orthodox physicians.
The Unbelievability of Homeopathy
I totally understand people who are skeptical of homeopathy - because I used to be one of them. Homeopathic remedies are made by a long process of sequential dilution and agitation and in any remedies higher than a 12 CH there are actually no molecules of the original substance left. I could not get my head around that at the beginning and science has yet to discover an agreed-upon mechanism to understand how homeopathic remedies work in the body. This is the entertaining story of how I was converted from skeptic to professional homeopath 28 years ago.
I woke up at 2 am with a golf ball stuck down my throat - and this one was on fire! Wait – that couldn’t be right – I wasn't even a golfer. Was I dreaming? Better check in the mirror – open wide!

Developmental Concerns Plus Urogenital and Sinus Issues
If a child has a combination of developmental concerns as well as chronic sinus or bladder and reproductive system issues, it is suspected from a homeopathic point of view that he or she may have been affected by parental cannabis use and may benefit greatly from a few doses of homeopathic cannabis.
