Consultant Physician and Neurologist, London

"During her training period as a homeopath, Ms Kristiane Backer regularly worked as an intern in my general practice. During her last assignment from 12 July 2002 - 23 August 2002, she mainly concerned herself with disease profiles of hypertension, diabetes, mellitus, insomnia, allergies such as hay fever, menstrual and menopausal conditions including ovarian dysfunctions and hot flushes, as well as osteoporosis and digestive problems. She acquired skills such as measuring blood sugar and blood pressure, taking blood samples and giving intra muscular injections under my supervision.

"In dealing with my patients, Ms Backer is very sensitive and perceptive. She is able to quickly comprehend pathological situations and is able to apply homeopathic thought which complemented my medical diagnosis and treatment. The patients gratefully accepted her therapy suggestions, experienced positive results and often came back for more.

"My colleagues and I miss her spontaneous medical and collegiate helpfulness. We wish Ms Backer all success for her professional and private future."
Dr E Rothe, GP Hamburg Germany

I have been going to Kristiane Backer for homeopathic consultations for the last eighteen months. I started seeing her following major surgery, where the post- operative healing was taking longer than expected. Kristiane was able to prescribe homeopathic medication that has gone some way in helping with the recovery. In addition Kristiane was able to help me with a number of other ailments, like hay fever, insomnia and jetlag.

I have found Kristiane's ability to deal with delicate matters, with a great deal of sensitivity, and empathy, a great help in dealing with both minor and major health problems. Thank you Kristiane.
Tarek K, Company Director, London
"I had suffered from blocked nasal congestion every morning when I woke up for the past 7/8 years. On my homeopathic consultation with Kristiane Backer she gave a course of treatment that successfully worked within a few weeks to give me full relief from my nasal congestion. I aim to consult her on my skin problem next and highly recommend her thorough and sensitively handled practice."
Ruby M, Filmmaker, London

"I had been plagued since my teenage years, by recurring bouts of cystitis. Anyone who is a fellow sufferer will understand the crippling discomfort of this ailment that would often catch one unawares. I had visited numerous doctors who would prescribe anti-biotics which would work for a short period of time but without fail the cystitis would return a couple of months later. I also tended to rely on 'over the counter' cystitis relief powders that would provide me with relief for short spurts. No matter what I did, douching, staying away from sex, drinking lots of water etc, nothing worked. Resigned with the fact that I would have this inexplicable ailment for life, I unexpectedly came across a cure. I had half-heartedly visited a homeopath, Kristiane Backer, who questioned me in great detail about all aspects of my life, my physical, emotional background. She prescribed some of her 'potions'. I was extremely sceptical of homeopathy and to be honest I did not even plan to take the pills. A week later, I was stuck in the country, Cystitis decided to come and keep me company. One night, I woke up, scrambling around the cupboards, desperately looking for my 'over the counter powders' There were none. Panic. Frantically I swallowed Kristiane's remedies as a last resort. In the morning it had remarkably eased off and I decided to stick with her programme, which I did. This was two years ago and I have never had cystitis since. I do not how it works but I am extremely grateful that it has. It did not just relieve the symptoms but 'did away' with whatever imbalance was going on in my body that was making it recur time and time again. I can honestly say it changed my life and also my view of homeopathy. Thank -you. Kristiane!!"

Daniella P, Entrepreneur, London

I was ill on and off for about eight years when I was finally diagnosed as having acute reflux oesophagitis. Without dwelling too much on the details, I had to sleep half sitting up as at night my symptoms kept me awake and left me cranky and unwell in the mornings. I was 'treated' with losec and told not to eat past 8pm in the evenings. Finally I requested surgery as I was working twelve hour days and getting a good night's sleep became a priority for both my mental and physical well-being. Although key-hole surgery for this condition has proved somewhat successful in other cases, I was told that there would be a possibility that I would have to have the surgery re-done! Well my Doctor's advice came true. Within eighteen months of the surgery I was feeling unwell and nauseous due to the reflux, though the symptoms were not as severe.

It was during this time that I happened to meet a wonderful friend 'Kristiane' who offered to treat my condition. Though initially sceptical I agreed ebcause I was in agony and again had to sleep sitting up which did not give me the rest I needed. I went for an in depth consultation where we spoke about all my symptoms and my moods including work related issues. She then prescribed two homeoapthic remedies for me. Success! My symptoms improved dramatically within hours of taking the initial dose. I have not had a reoccurence of my symptoms for over 14 months now which I owe to Kristiane's thorough consultation which lead to the correct remedy being prescribed.

I urge those who may be sceptical to give it a try. Too often people seek homeopathy as a last resort and I only wished I tried it first.

Famous people who support homeopathy

C. Everett Koop, M.D.

I can't remember a time when I didn't want to be a doctor. The doctors I knew as a very young child must have helped to plant the desire in me, when I was as young as five or six. One homeopathic physician, Dr. Justice Gage Wright, was a great model.
Published in Koop , New York : Harper, 1992.

Lindsay Wagner

If I was not an actress, I would be a homeopathic doctor.

I had that sticky stuff glued to me for months. Brings out the bruising, darling.'

Tina Turner

As quoted from Vogue (May, 1985), Tina Turner looks about thirty-six, and her skin is flawless. She does not deprive herself. She sips wine at dinner, does not diet, does not take vitamins. If she's feeling particularly stressed, she consults a homeopathic doctor.

Cases in brief

An ex-miner

A man who had survived two mine collapses (and lived to tell the tale) had an injured arm from 30 years before. His arm went numb every winter and ached all summer.

He looked after his animals, worked as a bus driver, a night watchman and a repair man, and spent time with his children. He worked 22½ hours a day! He said he didn't need more sleep.

His symptoms were Rhus tox keynotes, (pain worse beginning motion, better continued motion) taking the case took 5 minutes. And on Rhus tox, one dose, he slept 36 hours!! He said was it a sleeping drug? His arm improved immediately and continued to do so. And he returned to a normal sleep pattern.

A heart attack case

A woman 56 years old taking Nitro-glycerine 20 X a day for her heart.

Two clinical death experiences. Two heart attacks while taking the case!

She needed a double bypass but could not afford it.

The doctors told her to thank God every day she woke up, and not to bother if she didn't.

The ECG showed every possible problem. Arnica LM1given daily. 2 month later taking NG 2 x a week maybe. The ECG looks like a person who had heart attack years ago!

Boy with auto-immune disease

Boy, 13 years, with auto-immune disease, and given two weeks to live.

Parents in despair. He has had the very best medical attention in the USA.

In private he says there was nothing wrong, he cant understand what all the fuss is about, a keynote of Arnica daily. He recovers quickly and two years later he's fine, playing football etc.

War injury

A man has an injured leg from a war wound in Bosnia. There is no flesh down to the bone five years after the event.

After one month on Arnica 6c he put ½ inch (1.5cms) of flesh on the leg in a month. This would have required numerous skin grafting operations, possibilities of infection, and other complications (and cost?)

Back Ache for 30 years.

A woman has had backache for 30 years, (married for 37 years). She explains that her husband's dictatorial nature mortifies her. Given Staphisagria 30, one dose and the backache has gone away and now she sees that her husband tells jokes. Its like being first married again she exclaims!

Hospital Director

This doctor has had backache and sleeplessness for 22 years. She has tried everything medicine has to offer. Given Kali Carbonicum based on simple keynote/essence prescribing. She said "I slept very deeply last night, and today my back is better". She needed a few repeats over two years.

Woman with thyroid problem and lump in the breast

She presented as a sympathetic Causticum, and took it. This reduced the thyroid and the breast lump. The thyroid was measured to be normal after two months. She proceeded onto Conium after which the breast lump disappeared.

Learning disorder

Boy 6 years old. Easily distracted in class. Errors of perception - reverses things, letters. Tests show it's an eye not a brain problem. Losing confidence as he repeatedly cant do things. History: caesarean birth, mother slow to work out being a mother.

He is enthusiastic. He hates to be alone, is kind and sensitive with great expectations which are always disappointed. He has a fear of water, loves music loves ice lollies, chicken, pizza, coke. Aversion to tomatoes.

Given Phos LMI

Next day naughty in school but did his first successful spelling test.

Next day unbelievably hyper.

Next day played his first tune. The teacher was amazed.

Wrote his first sentence within a week, where before a word was a struggle.

This result was permanent.

A war story from Africa

Please do not read this if you are of a nervous disposition.

This is a typical personal scenario from this ex-war zone, by a mother. "In 1988 the soldiers came to my house, and I and my youngest son hid. They shot my husband my husband's brother and my eldest son - cutting him into pieces. We, myself and my son came out of hiding when the soldiers left, and were confronted by this terrible scene. The soldiers returned, saw us and said to me 'You will die', and pulled the triggers but nothing happened, (they had run out of bullets)."

For a long time she and her son were refugees and lived in torment, the son in a particularly bad mental state. She had a severe eruption over her head and body. In January 1997 (9 years later) they were both given Homoeopathic Ignatia, and within a week she was dramatically better, though pus was coming out of the top of her head. After a few more days when the sores were healed, she declared herself recovered, sleeping well for the first time since 1988. The son was almost completely cured- no more nightmares, stomach pains gone, sleeping well, eating well, etc. The psychiatrist who had done the interpreting (and whose patients they were), declared "its a miracle" (but it was simply the right homeopathic remedy for their kind of trauma).

Woman with Multiple Sclerosis

This woman's condition was aggravated considerable when a snipers bullet passed just in front of her, creating a severe shock 6 years ago. After treatment she reports she can peel potatoes for the first time in six years.

Boy with herpes

This boy was a child of a 'Chernobyl liquidator', one of the tens of thousands of young men sent in unprotected to clear up the Chernobyl nuclear disaster pollution materials. The father received a life times dose of radiation in the process and then went home and conceived this boy. The child of this man gets herpes attacks that invade his whole mouth and throat and he can't eat for days and is hospitalised. Silica LM1 selected on common keynotes permanently cures.

NB at least 80% of the Chernobyl cases can be significantly helped with homeopathy.
