You just can't beat that  newborn baby smell!

It's pretty well known that when people are asked their favourite smell, they often reply "my newborn baby"! I'm sure most of you know that our former receptionist Brony now has a beautiful baby daughter, and here's an article she came across to confirm that babies really do beat freshly baked bread when it comes to our noses!

Here at the Chandos Clinic, we have been keeping all the paper shreddings, for Giles' wife, Anna, to use them to make a sculpture for Glastonbury Festival 2014. So if you've visited the clinic in the last 8 months or so, its likely that a sliver of your name will have been used to make this incredible piece of work. Do have a look at the video link, showing its installation.

The pollen count is very high at the moment, and many of you are coming into the clinic suffering with hayfever. We hope you find some welcome relief with this advise from our allergy specialist, Gosia Gray.

Spring has come much earlier this year than expected, bringing with it many sensitivities and allergies to pollen of trees, shrubs, flowers, grasses and fungal spores.  As the blossom appears, hay fever begins, increasing through spring and summer. The symptoms of hay fever may vary from year to year; it all depends on the weather and pollen count.

Here are some suggestions for homoeopathic remedies for some of the common symptoms of hay fever. If you are experiencing lots of sneezing with burning watery nasal discharges and itching eyes, take Allium Cepa 6c. With lots of sneezing and sinus pain and itchy throat, take Sabadilla 6c. For sneezing with burning red eyes, swollen lids and headache, take Euprasia 6. Finally, for itching of the roof of the mouth, throat and ears, with sneezing, take Arundo 6.  The dose for all these remedies is 1 tablet 4 times a day.
