Both Epidemic and Pandemic refers to the spread of infectious diseases among a population. The term pandemic indicates a far higher number of people affected in much larger geographical area than epidemic. Mortality rate is number of deaths per 1000 individuals per year. Genus epidemicus means that the treatment protocol of an epidemic disease is designed based on the collected signs and symptoms of a large group of patients in the same geographical area.
Homeopathy has been a boon to the patients of scarlet fever, typhus fever, yellow fever, Pneumonia, Cholera, Influenza, Hepatitis, Dengue, Leptospirosis and Conjunctivitis during the times of pandemics and epidemics.
Let deeds speak reality. Homeopathy has always served people in epidemics and pandemics crisis, in old times and modern times.
This is a time-tested medicine that has never received its past-due merit and acknowledgments. It’s fascinating that even with existence of medical records, journals and clinical evidences in favour of homeopathy, it has always been bullied by bigots (popularly known as skeptics), who agrees that there is an evidence for homeopathy but it is not strong enough. So in case of an epidemic outbreak if homeopathy in doing “nothing” loses 14 patients a year and allopathy by doing “something” loses 20 patients a year in the same place and time-frame, then what causes the death of those extra 6 patients, and what is the “something”?!
EPIDEMICS AND PANDEMICS IN USA
In year 1873, a statistical report was presented by Dr. E. Kellogg for New York, for Philadelphia by Dr. P. Dudley, and for Boston was compiled by E. Russell. The following table is a summary of their general statistics published in [1, page 401]
City Year Number of Deaths under Allopathic Ratio Number of Deaths under Homeopathic Ratio
New York 1870 14,869 15 1,287 9
New York 1871 15,526 15 1,243 7
Boston 1870 3,872 17 402 10
Boston 1871 3,369 14 363 8
Boston 1872 4,575 19 446 8
Philadelphia 1872 12,468 19 2,162 12
Total: 54,679 Total: 5,903
General Statistics from 1874 to 1877 in U.S.:
Disease type in hospitals Mortality under Allopathic Treatment Mortality under Homeopathic Treatment
General diseases 10% 5%
Cholera 54% 27%
Pneumonia 14% 6%
Typhus fever 21% 10%
EPIDEMICS AND PANDEMICS BETWEEN 1799 AND 1918
 In the year 1852, Dr. Routh, a British allopathic physician and an opponent of homeopathy, was a designated authority by medical officials of London to release the mortality-statistics (for all diseases). As a result of his findings, Dr. Routh was constrained to testify in favor of homeopathy. He collected statistics of different hospitals (England, Austria and Germany), total of 32,655 homeopathic cases and 119,630 allopathic cases. The overall mortality under homeopathic treatment was 4.4 percent, and the overall mortality under allopathic treatment was 10.5 percent.
I also invite you to take a look at the following tables that demonstrates how effectively homeopathy has served humanity!

*During Hahnemann’s era, the extreme difficulties in treating cholera epidemic compelled the Russian medical community to send a letter to Dr. Hahnemann. The letter contained a detailed description of the symptoms of the disease, as well as a request to indicate appropriate remedies.
**Another event in that age, is from Sir William Wilde, the well-known allopathic doctor of Dublin, which in his work entitled “Austria and its Institutions”, wrote: “Upon comparing the report of the treatment of Cholera in the Homeopathic hospital testified to by two allopathic medical inspectors appointed by Government with that of the treatment of the same disease in the other hospitals of Vienna during the same period the epidemic of 1836, it appeared that while two-thirds of the cases treated by Dr. Fleischmann the physician of the Homeopathic hospital, recovered, two-thirds of those treated by the ordinary methods in the other hospitals died.”
***In 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, a physician in a Pittsburgh hospital in U.S. asked a nurse if she knew anything better than what he was doing, because he was losing many cases. “Yes Doctor, stop aspirin and go down to a Homeopathic pharmacy, and get homeopathic remedies.” The Doctor replied: “but that is homeopathy.” “I know it, but the homeopathic doctors for whom I have nursed have not lost a single case.” 
EPIDEMICS IN CUBA BETWEEN 2004 AND 2010
From Spanish Flu of 1918, let us forward the time to 2010, release of several outstanding reports in epidemiologic surveillance studies conducted by the Finlay Institute, a vaccines producer in Cuba. According to Finlay Institute, between December 2009 and January 2010, about 9,074439 individuals, near 90% of Cuban population received homeopathic preventive medicine (Homeoprophylaxis) for respiratory diseases, influenza (including AH1N1) with remarkable outcomes and a great reduction rate in mortality. Homeopathic interventions were also employed in other diseases in Cuba such as Hepatitis A (population 1400000, year 2004-2007), Dengue (population 150000, year 2006-2009), Leptospirosis  (population 2300000, year 2007-2008), Conjunctivitis (population 180000, year 2008-2009) with undeniable successful results, thanks to homeopathy!

Like many essential oils, Peppermint Oil has many uses for your health and around your home. Today we will talk about a few ways to try it and make sure to share your tips on the best uses for Peppermint Oil in the comments!
Peppermint Oil is the oil harvested from the peppermint plant. You can buy it already made up (Buy It Here or Here at Mountain Rose Herbs) or if you are into growing herbs, you can easily grow peppermint in your herb garden and harvest the oil for yourself. It’s actually easier than you think! Here’s how to make your own Peppermint Oil.
Harvest the peppermint leaves from your plant in the early morning. This will ensure the greatest amount of extract that you can get from the leaves. Make sure to pick the best leaves you can find. Wash and dry the leaves gently and place in a plastic bag. Take a soft mallet to the bag and carefully use it to tap at the leaves, not to crush them but to help release the oils. After you have a small amount of oil, place it in a glass bottle (like this one) and fill the bottle the rest of the way with a carrier oil. (Such as almond oil, grapeseed oil, or jojoba oil.) Place the lid on and shake the bottle, store in a cool dark place for at least 24 hours. Strain the oil through a cheesecloth and place back in the bottle, follow the steps again to extract more oil and add it to your mixture. You can repeat the process as many times as needed to get your oil to the desired strength. (You can find more Uses for Mint here)
Now that we know how to make peppermint oil, let’s learn about all the things we can do with it!
**Note: Like with all essential oils, test first to make sure you are not allergic, do not use on young children, do not use if pregnant, and do not use if you have certain medical conditions. Nothing here is meant to diagnose, treat, or prevent diseases, please ask your doctor for that kind of advice. These are simply tips to give ideas.
Uses for Peppermint Oil Around the Home
◾Keep ants and spiders out of your home by making a barrier of peppermint oil. Put some oil on a cotton ball and wipe around the areas they are entering your home such as doorways or windows. They won’t cross the barrier.
◾Place peppermint oil on cotton balls and leave in strategic areas around your home to deter mice.
◾Peppermint oil mixed with tea tree oil and water can make a great disinfectant for things around your home.
◾Add some peppermint oil to your Homemade Cleaners to give them a fresh scent and to give them antifungal and antibacterial properties.
◾In a spray bottle, mix epsom salts and a few drops of peppermint oil with warm water. Swish around until salts are dissolved. Spray on dogs to help with fleas.
◾A few drops of peppermint oil mixed with water in a spray bottle will help kill aphids on plants.
◾Place peppermint oil on the tip of a cotton swap and put around the head of a tick to remove it from skin.
Uses for Peppermint Oil
Uses for Peppermint Oil for Health and Beauty
◾Help bring down nausea or indigestion. Inhale the scent to help stop nausea instantly. For indigestion, rub peppermint oil mixed with a carrier oil on your abdomen in a circular pattern.
◾Add a few drops to a humidifier to help with colds and congestion.
◾Create a natural chest rub by melting shea butter, beeswax, and coconut oil in equal amounts with a few drops of peppermint oil to help with congestion.
◾Relieve a headache by mixing peppermint oil with a carrier oil and rubbing on your sinus’ or temples. Help relieve a tension headache by also rubbing on the neck.
◾Add a few drops of peppermint oil into an Olive Oil Candle to help improve alertness and to help relieve stress.

◾Add a few drops of peppermint oil into a foot bath with epsom salts to help relax tired, worn feet.
◾Add a few drops into your morning water to help with digestion during the day. (If your body can’t handle this you can buy empty capsules to place the drops in so the oil doesn’t release until it hits your stomach.)
◾To help motion sickness, rub a small amount that has been diluted with a carrier oil onto the insides of your wrists.
◾Create an invigorating bath by adding a few drops of peppermint oil to warm bath water.
◾Mix peppermint oil with a carrier oil and place on bumps and bruises to help with pain and bring down the bump.
◾Add a few drops of peppermint oil to Homemade Shampoo to help with dandruff.
◾Mix peppermint oil with a carrier oil to help relieve cramps.
◾Inhale the scent of peppermint oil while studying and then before a test to help with brain function and to increase alertness.
◾To help relieve a rash, mix a few drops of peppermint oil with some coconut oil and rub into the effected area.
◾Peppermint oil can help with hot flashes. Just add a few drops to a spray bottle of cold water and spritz on your body as needed.
More Uses for Peppermint Oil
◾Add a few drops of peppermint oil to homemade potpourri to make an invigorating atmosphere in your home.
◾Add a few drops of oil to the bottom of your trash can or on a cotton ball placed in the bottom of your trash can to keep it smelling fresh.
As you can see, there are more uses for Peppermint Oil than we can possibly list here! My personal favorite use for Peppermint Oil is to keep away the spiders.

[2009 nov] 20 Years of USA Doctors’ Malpractice Data Closed To Public More than 20 years ago Congress created a federal database to track incompetent and unprofessional health-care practitioners. The database, compiled by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, includes some 460,000 records of malpractice lawsuits whose judgments total $69.7 billion. It includes information on 23,788 patient deaths, 8,100 major permanent injuries and 3,896 cases that resulted in quadriplegics, brain damage or lifelong care. Much of the data is closed to the public. The doctors’ names remain hidden, preventing patients from using the data to look up information on their practitioner. “If the data bank is reliable enough for state medical boards to use on a daily basis, why should it be considered too incomplete for curious patients?” asked Sidney Wolfe, a physician and director of the Health Research Group for Public Citizen, a nonprofit consumer advocacy organization out of Washington, D.C.

Cinnamon is very effective in preventing foodborne diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria, a new study finds.
Who doesn’t love a sprinkling of cinnamon on fresh apple pie or atop a chai latte? It’s just one of those spices that taste fantastic. But taste is not the only reason to love cinnamon. It also has many health benefits. Adding to the already long list of such benefits is the recent discovery suggesting cinnamon can help keep foodborne diseases at bay.
Escherichia coli (E. coli) are the most common bacteria that cause foodborne illnesses. These bacteria are known as “non-O157 STEC,” according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. After looking at the top six strains of non-O157 STEC, researchers from Washington State University found that cinnamon oil was effective in killing several strains of such bacteria.
“Our focus is on exploring plant-derived natural food bioactive compounds as antimicrobials to control foodborne pathogens, in order to ensure safety of fresh produce,” co-author Meijun Zhu, an assistant professor in the School of Food Science said in a press statement. “The oil can be incorporated into films and coatings for packaging both meat and fresh produce. It can also be added into the washing step of meat, fruits or vegetables to eliminate microorganisms.”
Very recently, a study also highlighted that cinnamon may help stop progression of Parkinson’s disease.
“Cinnamon has been used widely as a spice throughout the world for centuries,” said lead author Kalipada Pahan, in a press statement. “This could potentially be one of the safest approaches to halt disease progression in Parkinson’s patients. Cinnamon is metabolized in the liver to sodium benzoate, which is an FDA-approved drug used in the treatment for hepatic metabolic defects associated with hyperammonemia.”
It reduces LDL cholesterol levels. LDL is also known as the harmful cholesterol. Reducing it may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Cinnamon has natural anti-infection compounds. In studies, cinnamon has been effective against ulcer-causing H. pylori bacteria and other pathogens.
This spice also reduces pain linked to arthritis. Cinnamon has been shown to reduce cytokines linked to arthritic pain. Research also shows that cinnamon may reduce the proliferation of cancer cells, holding promise for cancer prevention and sufferers of the disease. It is a natural food preservative. It contains fiber, calcium, iron, and manganese, albeit small amounts, in a typical dose of ground cinnamon.
Studies have also proven that cinnamon is effective in treating menstrual pain and infertility. It contains a natural chemical called cinnamaldehyde, which studies show increases the hormone progesterone and decreases testosterone production in women, helping to balance hormones.
The current study was published online in the journal ‘Food Control’.
importance of delayed cord cutting when having a baby
Originally posted on MidwifeThinking:
When I was a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed student midwife I was awarded with a certificate and a box of chocolates. My achievement was collecting the most cord blood in the hospital. At that time the Local Health District was trialling a cord blood bank. The collected stem cells were to be used for treating leukaemia and for research. Every woman birthing in the hospital was asked to donate cord blood for the good cause, and many generously agreed. I was exceptionally good at collecting the blood. This post is a small attempt to repent for my sins.
In recent years cord blood collection and storage has become popular, particularly in the private sector. Cord blood contains magical stem cells, and the idea is that if your baby becomes ill in the future you may be able to use these cells as treatment. My concern with cord blood banking is the inadequate and misleading information given…

Homeopathy For Plants
thanks to Irene SChwens
Gentle Remedies for your Garden and Farming
Although homeopathy’s effectiveness is still scientifically disputed, practical experience shows again and again that it works. For people, animals and even plants. Find out here how it works.
Plants love Homeopathic Remedies too! This discovery is relatively new – but it is finding ever more enthusiastic followers
Homeopathy is gaining in popularity not only in this country. Because of its gentle effectiveness. The finding that even plants respond to homeopathic remedies is fairly new and has become more widespread over the past few years.
In her book entitled “Homeopathy for Plants – A practical guide for indoor, balcony and garden plants with tips on dosage, use and choice of potency”, Naturopath Christiane Maute describes how she discovered homeopathy for plants through a Larkspur (Delphinium consolida). This is a plant from the buttercup family – Ranunculaceae. Larkspur flowers are almost as complex as the Orchids. She has used homeopathic medicine for years to treat her patients successfully. Then one day she bought a Larkspur at the market. When planting it, she dropped it and the main stalk snapped.
She reports that she simply thought she would try Arnica 200 CH. She dissolved a few pellets in water and poured the medicinal mixture over the Larkspur. The next day it stood upright. At first she thought it was a coincidence. She didn’t bandage it or do anything else to it. And then she thought that maybe plants are just as perceptive to certain things as we are and continued testing.
Sometime later the cherry tree in her back yard was affected by brown rot tip drought. A fungal disease that was going around in the whole region at the time. The naturopath poured Thuja 200 CH over it. It had proved to be a good remedy for fungal infections from cold dampness. She reports that the tree recovered quickly, that dry leaves continued to fall but that healthy green started to grow soon. A little later she received a call from one of her neighbors wondering what she did to her cherry tree – it was the only one in the neighborhood that still had green leaves!
The discovery how homeopathy can help plants came about accidentally
How to find the correct remedy
It is within the nature of homeopathy to determine the totality of symptoms by taking a thorough case. The German doctor Samuel Hahnemann who founded the system of homeopathy, saw disease as an alteration of a healthy person’s state of wellbeing, which expressed itself in the form of symptoms. You would approach these by asking: What makes it better? Or worse? What’s the cause? How is the pain, how is the emotional state?
Depending on the corresponding answers, you could be choosing different remedies for similar complaints. But plants cannot be consulted like people can. The only means to come to a remedy selection here is by closely examining their symptoms and cause, and to interpret them as accurately as possible using your intuition. This is where you would rely on your experience in treating people.
Try the key symptom of a remedy that you would normally give to a person, on plants. For example, in cases of freezing where the leaves turn to a light or silvery colour, use Aconite 200 CH. When the leaves are more of a reddish colour use Belladonna 200 CH. Just like with a feverish child. If the child is pale then you know it is an Aconite fever. If is extremely red on the other hand, like a hot tomato, then the remedy is Belladonna. And you see this on the leaves too. You simply convert it one to one.
Homeopathic remedies work on plants similarly to how they act on people. For example, Arnica helps with injuries and Thuja with fungal infections.
Determining which remedy works for what plant problem is often a matter of experience. A recommendation would be using a remedy that is indicated for a person in the given circumstance
It is a matter of choosing the correct Potency
Dosage and potency are chosen as required. Christiane Maute states that here too she uses the same guidelines as she does for people. If the wants to strengthen an organ, she will choose an X potency. For example Calcium carbonicum or Magnesium phosphoricum, but also Ferrum phosphoricum or Kalium phosphoricum. The sames goes for fertilization of plants. She uses 6X potencies for these purposes. When using X potencies you will need half a teaspoon of small pellets dissolved in 10 litres of water.
The higher potencies such as 30 CH or 200 CH are used to treat plant diseases, pests or weather damage. But the dosage is much lower. She uses 6 to 8 pellets dissolved in 30 litres of water here.
The higher potencies are disputed the most among the homeopathic remedies because according to Avogadro’s Law you cannot detect any molecules from the original substance in them. Still, it is astounding to see how fast they act when the right remedy is chosen.
Conventional medicine likes to attribute the effectiveness of the higher potencies to the placebo effect. This means that pure belief in the curative power of an actually ineffective substance causes healing. But in plant homeopathy, this attempt to explain away the remedies’ effectiveness does sound rather strange. So should we then think that it is the gardener’s belief in Cimicifuga 30 CH which is telepathically transferred to plant lice that compels them to leave? Because this has indeed been confirmed numerous times – even though the lice are not impressed by the remedy itself in any other way.
Besides, the biophysicist Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp showed already decades ago that plants do measurably respond to homeopathic medicines up to a potency of at least 12X. When it came to the higher potencies he believed that the resonance principle known in physics could be responsible for the effectual cause. The fact alone that Popp accepted a research assignment for homeopathy, led to him being banned from lecturing and losing his position at the University of Kaiserslautern back then.
This is how it works
Choosing the right Remedy
Carefully observe the plant’s symptoms and all concomitants. Then use a homeopathic repertory to determine the correct medicine.
Use only one remedy at a time. Let the pellets dissolve in water, then pour or spray the medicinal water onto the plants. Avoid using metal spoons to stir the mixture. Do not pour the water over your hands and do not inhale the spray mist.
Dosage using CH potencies
For indoor plants use 4 pellets dissolved in 1 litre of water. For outdoor plants, 6 – 8 pellets to 30 litres of water.
Dosage using X potencies
A half tsp. of 6X pellets dissolved in 10 litres of water.
After you first use a remedy, wait and see how the plant responds. If there is improvement, no further action is required. Re-dose only if the symptoms come back after initial improvement. You may wish to choose a higher potency this time. If the symptoms are not better, then change the remedy, and carefully re-examine the symptoms and causes.
For Rainy Days
If it rains for longer periods of time do not pour large amounts of water. In this case use only 6 to 8 pellets dissolved in 150 ml of water and apply in spoonfuls to the root areas.
A few pellets are often enough to heal plants. Even stubborn plant lice can be driven away with homeopathic medicines.
A Healthy Walnut Tree thanks to Homeopathic Remedies
Over the course of time, Naturopath Christiane Maute tried a number of homeopathic remedies for different events. Sometimes it took several attempts to determine the correct medicine. One day a neighbor came to her and complained about her walnut tree bearing black nuts. She first gave her Carbo vegetabilis 30 CH and then Arsenicum album 30 CH. Finally she thought that if the nuts are black, then they might have fallen victim to a fungus infection and tried the remedy Thuja 200 CH. The result: The walnut tree cast three black nuts. In the year before it was thousands of black nuts!
In the treatment of trees it has been found that pouring the medicinal water over the tree trunk and the soil within the radius of the tree crown was effective. Smaller plants can be watered or sprayed.
To treat your plants homeopathically, dissolve the pellets in water. Then rain it on the plants, spray it on or pour it in the area of the root ball.
Simple Instructions for Treatment
The indications in plant homeopathy are surprisingly diverse: Bacteria, viruses, weather damage, fungi, pests and even “emotional” problems. The practical examples that are easiest to follow are ready-made prescriptions in homeopathy. Slumping, a blow or a fall will respond well to Arnica. Cracks respond to Calendula or cuts after pruning are treated with Staphysagria 200 CH. When replanting or relocating a plant, Christiane Maute uses Arnica, simply to encourage root formation again.
Sometimes plants can be downright offended or very sensitive and then she gives Ignatia, a remedy for grief. Even when they are neglected when you are away on vacation for example, she gives a grief remedy which is a salt at the same time: Natrium chloratum in 30 CH.
The stress a plant is subjected to on relocation or pricking out can be relieved homeopathically as well – using Calendula 30 CH for example. Calendula has been found to act as an antiseptic and re-constructively and it makes the plant less prone to disease and bugs. The same goes for seeds – therefore she recommends that you put the seeds in Calendula water for a few hours prior to seeding your vegetable or flower plants. Two pellets to one litre of water will be enough.
Homeopathy even has antagonists to help treat scale insects and inch worms.
How to Protect the Environment
In plant homeopathy, not only the Law of Similars is effective. For this reason, agents that are commonly used in agriculture can be applied homeopathically. For example Petroleum for scale insects, or Copper and Sulphur for mildew.
In this way, the same effects are achieved in a gentler, cheaper and environmentally friendlier way – and this is one of the main advantages of plant homeopathy: getting away from the countless pesticides that poison not only our environment but in the end more and more us ourselves.
Another advantage of plant homeopathy is that it can be used proactively as well, for example for difficult to predict changes in the weather. Christiane Maute states that if she applies Aconite 200 CH early in the spring before budding, before proliferation of the leaves of the roses, and Belladonna 200 CH one week later, then frost damage is minimal. The plants also get black spot disease or rust fairly late in the season. Or, if it rains for a longer period of time and the roots of tomato plants are standing in the wet, then she gives Natrium sulphuricum 30 CH proactively. If it is cold, simply Belladonna 200 CH. This will start the heat. This will give them another good boost and the tomato late blight is significantly less.
Blight or rust are fungal infections that like to infest roses

Exchange of Experiences is important
Homeopathy by principle is a science based on experience. And with respect to plants we are really only at the beginning. In her book which has become a bestseller in the meantime, Christiane Maute addressed a large number of plant lovers and started an active exchange of experiences. There have been numerous reports from plant lovers, one for example of a lady stating that although she is not a big gardener, using Aconite for rose rust gave her a huge sense of achievement – her roses have never before been this nice!
How Professionals are using this Knowledge
But it’s not only the home gardeners who are favoring homeopathy over pesticides. Followers include seasoned professionals as well, whose existence depends upon the growth and wellbeing of their plants. It’s been an exciting journey for many. Seeing mealybugs disappear after being treated with Cimicifuga 30 CH, for example. These are difficult to combat using even conventional / chemical substances. Or to see the robust scale insects die off as if by magic, thanks to Petroleum 30 CH.
Of course there have been disappointments too, because the correct remedy is not always obvious at first. But all in all, success speaks for itself. Some horticultural engineers have reported using 90 % less chemistry in the past year thanks to homeopathy and plant fortifiers. This was possible because preventative homeopathic measures were taken and only the seemingly unsolvable acute problems were combatted using classical fixes.
Pellets – Success in the Vineyard too!
These experiences are exemplary for the vineyard too as they offer a promising outlook, economically and environmentally. There are wine growers in Germany who have farmed their vineyards not only organically, but using homeopathy as well. And the resulting wine has earned numerous awards of excellence.
Always in tune with Nature
You need to watch for sufficient greening in between the vine rows, to think holistically, so to say. The more you are concerned with the vine, making sure that it feels good within a diversity of flora, the more you can be certain of a resulting product that you can be proud of. By abandoning pesticides and chemical fertilizers, a better quality of grape can be achieved.
Higher potencies that are used include for example Belladonna to reduce susceptibility to infections in hot humid weather and Dulcamara in damp foggy weather. Also, Cuprum has been used for Lettuce Downy Mildew, preventatively too, and Aconite for sudden events such as a cold front coming through. Silicea is used on the vineyard to strengthen the tissue structure of leaves and new shoots, and Arnica for injuries of vines and grapes.
Medium to low potencies are also used when needed: For example Hypericum 6X if the sun is too strong or Crategus if a vine needs a boost to get over critical situations. The German wine maker Rainer Loacker who is also founder of the Italian homeopathic manufacturing company Remedia, has demonstrated for the past 35 years that success in the vineyard is possible using biodynamics and homeopathy. But he hasn’t found many followers yet, because most of his colleagues find his method too cumbersome. He feels that if you want to use homeopathic medicines then you really need to delve into it. Because homeopathy is so comprehensive that he has never really stopped learning, he says.
Still, it would be desirable to have the enthusiasm for plant homeopathy that we see among home gardeners expand also to full-time farmers. Because every reduction in pesticides that poison us and our environment is to be welcomed. Besides, this offers not only a health and environmental advantage, but also an economical advantage which is not to be poked fun at. Because 30 litres of homeopathic medicinal water cost no more than $ 0.30, as calculated by Christiane Maute.
