Allergies

ALLERGIES:

Allergies have exploded through our nation in the last 50 years, and the medical community does not know why. Allergies are the fifth leading chronic disease in America, and the third in children who are under 18. And here is a surprising statistic- 1 in 4 Americans have a respiratory allergy today, whereas only one in 7 did in 1950.

The modern medical system of treating allergies with desensitizing shots stems, in actual fact, from the homeopathic principle of “like treats like.”Homeopaths help clients with allergies by giving them desensitizing drops, under the tongue, of remedies made of the very allergens that cause the reaction. Gently and slowly the drops enter the body, under the radar screen of the body’s immune reaction. The body gets used to the “intruders,” and begins to accept that they are indeed not enemies, and no reaction is required. So, instead of painful and expensive shots, we use potencies made of the allergen in question to desensitize the client. Homeopathic medicines are very safe and effective, and believe me, kids like our methods much, much better than the shots!

There is a strong research history for the homeopathic treatment of allergies. At the University of Glasgow a group of researchers published four studies in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) and the Lancet, two highly respected medical journals. These were well controlled studies- randomized, placebo controlled, and double-blind The result? There was a 28% improvement in those who took homeopathic remedies, than in those who took placebos.

In my practice I help people with allergies a variety of ways.  I recommend combination homeopathic remedies to desensitize the allergen. I recommend nutritional supplements to support their immune system and lower the reactivity of allergy response. And the most powerful homeopathic method is to choose what we call a “constitutional remedy” to balance the person in a deep way, and to reduce the allergic over-reactivity. This is done by individualizing a homeopathic medicine to a specific person so that it matches his symptoms, both physically and psychologically. This is the original form of “classical homeopathy” and is extremely successful and long lasting.

Diane grew up in Oregon, and says she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing. Her father gave her a guitar for Christmas when she was 13, and she taught herself folk and country styles, and started to write songs. At 19, believing her first talent was acting, she headed off to England, determined to study acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. But life can take some funny turns. Before she could arrange an interview, she was literally “discovered,” playing her guitar and singing to a small, private, New Year’s Eve party at a London hotel. IMG_0005 2A BBC television producer was there, a screen test followed, and the result was a network primetime series of variety specials! “The Diane Solomon Show” of the late 70s, was a great success, and she quickly became a regular on British TV, with other specials of her own, and numerous guest appearances, including several Royal Gala Specials. She recorded 5 albums, appeared on countless radio shows, TV hosting, and musical theater productions. She headed four major UK Theater concert tours of her own, toured with Glen Campbell on three European tours, and opened for a major Kenny Rogers’ tour in 1991. IMGBut then life took another turn, this time not so fortunate. She was diagnosed with the infamous M.E., or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and for the next three years was too ill to walk across the room unaided. For a total of seven years she struggled with half a life. In the darkest hours songwriting was her saving grace, and the title cut of her new CD, “Good Things Don’t Come Easy” was born of this troubled time. With the help a brilliant German homeopathic system of healing, plus nutrition and herbs, she regained her health. Diane was so impressed with these alternate therapies that she has since gained degrees in both nutrition and homeopathy, achieving a doctorate degree from the British Institute of Homeopathy. She practiced nutrition and homeopathy for fifteen years, using a combination of nutrients, herbs, homeopathic remedies, and diet and lifestyle recommendations. She describes dealing with people’s health issues as a kind of “onion layer” experience. Herbs, nutrients, and lifestyle changes are powerful, yet are in some way addressing the outer layers. They help enormously, but she has found that the major changes in people’s health comes from a deep homeopathic remedy, known as the constitutional remedy. Homeopathy is not an exact science, and thought, attention, focus, intuition, and yes, luck are involved in finding this remedy. When the right deep remedy is chosen, improvements in a client’s well being, both physically and psychologically, can be dramatic, even life-changing! Now focusing on writing, Diane lives in beautiful Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, with her husband, Mark Carey. She writes soft country, folk, and classical ballads, playing both guitar and piano. She has written several non-fiction books fields of nutrition and homeopathy, plus has ghost-written and/or edited seven books for clients, in various fields. She has just finished a middle grade mystery/fantasy novel with her husband Mark, entitled The Ravenstone: The Secret of Ninham Mountain, due for publication Sept 30 2016. Kindle cover final oct 10 2015She has also recently published a book on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, entitled, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: a guide to the homeopathic treatment of CFS/M.E. It was published in November, 2015, and was quickly the top selling book on Amazon in the homeopathic category. Sometimes called a “Renaissance Woman,” she writes, edits, researches, designs and builds gardens, always seeking more knowledge, more understanding, and more creative flow.
