A nuclear magnetic resonance study of potencies of natrum muriaticum 15CH prepared by trituration and succussion versus natrum muriaticum 15CH prepared by succussion alone
The purpose of this investigation was to analyse and compare the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectra of potencies of Natrum muriaticum 15CH prepared by trituration and succussion, and Natrum muriaticum 15CH prepared ...
A homoeopathic drug proving of the venom of Bitis gabonica gabonica
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effects of the thirtieth centesimal (30CH) potency of the venom of Bitis gabonica gabonica on healthy individuals in order to elucidate the total morbid symptomatology ...
An assessment of coronary artery calcification, using the calcium scoring technique, in an asymptomatic Indian population in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal
The main aim of this study, was to assess the prevalence of coronary artery calcification in asymptomatic risk and non risk individuals in the South African Indian population, within the age group of 20-70 years.
A retrospective survey of post-graduate career paths of Durban Institute of Technology (DIT-formerly Technikon Natal) homoeopathic graduates from 1994 to 2004
The first formal Homoeopathic education programme in South Africa introduced Technikon Natal (now the Durban Institute of Technology – DIT). The course had its first intake in 1989 and has since produced some 10 years of ...
An investigation into the association between the severity of patellofemoral pain syndrome and patella mobility
Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) is a common knee problem that affects 25% of the general population. PFPS generally affects adolescents, especially females, young adults and sports men and women. PFPS is defined as ...
An investigation into the effect of a high velocity low amplitude manipulation on core muscle strength in patients with chronic mechanical lower back pain
Brunarski (1984) says that philosophically and historically, chiropractic has been uniquely orientated toward an emphasis on preventative care and health maintenance with a mechanistic and hands-on model for treatment. ...
The perception of homoeopathy amongst grade 12 learners in Durban, South Africa
A perception amongst homoeopaths in South Africa that there is a great deal of ignorance and misunderstanding about homoeopathy required empirical evidence to ascertain its validity.
Sagittal plane blockage of the foot and ankle : prevalence and association with low back pain
There is a growing base of evidence demonstrating the important relationship between altered mechanics of the lower limb and low back pain. Sagittal plane blockage, specifically at the first metatarsophalangeal joints but ...
