13th Australian Homoeopathic Medicine Conference
Africa Malaria Prevention Project
This year, the Amma Resonance Healing Foundation is celebrating its 15th anniversary and what better way to celebrate than with the possibility of preventing malaria for at least 150,000 children!
It costs only 10 cents per child per year, so at least €15,000.- is needed. Last year the African volunteers reached 500,000 children and adults. For this year they are aiming at 150,000 more. At least, as there are still many more children ARHF would love to offer a happy and healthy life.
To achieve this goal, ARHF asks for your help. Would you like to celebrate their anniversary with them and help the children?

NHS Head Warns of Over Prescribing Drugs
Professor Sir Stephen Powis, the NHS medical director in the UK, said doctors must stop giving “a pill for every ill” as it leaves millions of patients hooked on drugs they don’t need. He said that 10% of all GP prescriptions are unnecessary, meaning about 114 million drugs are dispensed needlessly each year at a cost to the NHS of nearly £1 billion. He added that thousands end up in the hospital from the harmful side effects of medicines.
