Somebody must be really stupid to google symptoms first in that case.
That's shocking enough, but even though I've had a microscopic level of training, I'd be loathe to use it unless there was absolutely no alternative because these things change all the time, especially CPR, so to think that I'd be the best option would be highly irresponsible and negligent.

Now this is a thing... I stopped being a first aider because I changed employ, and the UK law changed regarding a first aider being able to be charged with negligence if they hadn't administered first aid correctly. How can a Homeopathic 'Doctor' take on the responsibility for someone's health and wellbeing and not be charged with negligence if they fail to recognise symptoms that a traditonal doctor would?

Please don't use Homeopathic and Doctor in the same sentence, even with quotes.

Obviously that clip sprang to my mind as well -- but yeah, I posted it umpteen pages ago. And in a previous thread, too. But it's a gold-plated classic, absolutely spot on -- and hilarious.

I think you can use them - in the same way as you can use Witch and Doctor in the same sentence.

What if your child has been throwing up for 24 hours and has a temperature?

What non-A and E medical situation would get you to your GP?


Have since read more of the thread... and would still like this question answering!

Been there recently - norovirus going around

Official guidelines (based on a survey and averaging of reputable public health sites):

* Check for anything else wrong (blood in urine/faeces, etc etc), go to doctor if there is anything

* Drink plenty of water (wow, homeopathy!), or clear fluids like syrup, or rehydrating solution if they seem dehydrated (very thirsty, dark urine, etc)

* If it settles down, try to eat plain solids, but don't over eat or rush it

* Any other problems, or more than a day or two, go to the doctor

Also clean your teeth or rinse after vomitting, otherwise it's bad for your teeth and anyway makes you feel worse

Um... thanks. I know all of this. Though in the UK, if a child throws up six or more times in four hours the doc (or nurse practitioner) wants to know about it. And dehydration sachets only to be given to small children on prescription.

Re the teeth cleaning... you can't get an exhausted toddler to submit to having their teeth cleaned.

Question was aimed at Pilatesfan but thanks for playing, I suppose.

Re the teeth cleaning... you can't get an exhausted toddler to submit to having their teeth cleaned.
  • Let your toddler pick the supplies. Take your tot to the store and let him choose his own toothbrush and toothpaste. A colorful character on the brush’s handle may not inspire you, but it might make all the difference in coaxing your toddler to brush his teeth. Let him pick the toothpaste too, so that he’s sure to like the flavor.
  • Lower your expectations. Your child probably won’t be cleaning the gum lines or reaching into tiny crevices just yet. Don’t sweat it. These early lessons are as much about instilling the habit as they are about technique. The more practice he gets, the faster he’ll improve.
  • Take turns. If you’re really worried that your toddler’s teeth aren’t getting properly cleaned while he’s learning to take the reins, let him do the morning brushing session, while you handle the evening one. That way, he’ll get practice brushing on his own in the a.m., but he’ll also get a reminder of your technique in the p.m. Nighttime is also a good opportunity for you to get him used to flossing once a day before brushing (unlike brushing, flossing is something you’ll want to do for him at this point).
  • Brush along with him. Get in on the action, and join your toddler while he brushes his teeth. Having a little camaraderie might encourage him to take a little longer and give his teeth a more-thorough cleaning. Try stepping it up a notch by setting up a competition (Who can brush every tooth?).
  • Take a spin. Consider giving your child a battery-powered spin toothbrush. The novelty might coerce your toddler to brush his teeth. Plus, there are some toothbrushes that play a song until it’s time to stop, or signal that two minutes are up by making a noise.
  • Find an ally. Ask the dentist to praise your child for brushing himself. Getting the thumbs-up from an authority in a white jacket will encourage your toddler to soldier on.

Tell me you just cut and pasted that and didn't waste your precious time...

Is "bite me" considered impolite in Swiss society? Mum is a dental nurse with over 40 years' experience. I've been successfully cleaning Little Rufus' teeth since she's had them. After she's had her go obvs. In fact I reckon I could probably clean your teeth from here... still no good if your kid is too exhausted to hold their head up.

Your forum thanks you for your contribution however.

Now, if you could just sort this homeopathic tomfoolery... and the dude who wants new baby pics but won't say what they will do with them...

Re: Training to become a Homeopathic Doctor

There is a Verband der anerkannten Naturheilpraktiker, which coukd be a starting point for your research.

I would also look at the Paracelsus Clinics. They offer courses in homeopathy and they have doctors practicing tcm, anthroposophic medicine and phytotherapie, next to homeopathy.

Have you tried contacting health care providers who also offer homeopathic treatments in order to ask to intern with them?

As you may know, there are institutions offering 'studies' in homeopathy but I am not sure if these degrees have any value.

The homeopaths I know have branched out into this field or work in this field, next to working in their primary field, after completing an accredited education, such as medicine , pharmacy or chiropractic care..

So there are obviously many ways to practice homeopathy but you need to have at least some basic understanding of things like biochemistry and human anatomy.

Re: Training to become a Homeopathic Doctor

People having more choices is in principle a good thing, as long as it is clear alternative medicine, homeopathy and other treatments are complementary to conventional medicine.
It makes me wonder why homeopathy has been experiencing such a boom in popularity in recent times. Is it the marketing, lax regulations, gullible people? The likeliest reason seems to be people`s dissatisfaction with aspects of the mainstream medicine.

This skeptic blog perhaps says it best:

"None of this is to imply that mainstream medicine has no problems or failings – it does. We should, however, be working toward keeping and improving what works and fixing what doesn’t, not discarding science and reason to embrace fantasy as an alternative."
and
"We are apparently hard-wired to find anecdotes compelling, and nothing is more compelling than our own personal anecdotes."

I reckon the 'likeliest' reason is that the internet can make anyone an expert and it's easy for people with no bloody idea to reach a huge audience of gullible people.

It's not just quack medicine that gets a boost from this but quack dieting and quack fitness regimes do too.
