We love surrounding ourselves with the very best for our health and essential oils are incredibly healing essences from the vast and potent world of plant medicine. Essential oils reach us on a very deep level and heal on an emotional, physical and mental level. They elicit feelings of well-being, like a giant aaahhhhhh. They support our body’s defense system and work synergistically by activating our body’s own healing response. All essential oils are antimicrobial and have antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antibiotic properties. When used in skincare they harmonize our microbiome, naturally balancing our system. The result is healthier, younger looking, radiant skin. Many products found on the market today are too harsh and disrupt the balance of our system resulting in common skin disorders, inflammation and abnormal cell growth.

SUMMARYsunset 026 (2)

 The habitual consumption of "diet" products containing the chemical
aspartame not only risks aspartame disease but also clinical addiction.
Thirty-three (5.6 percent) of 540 aspartame reactors in the author's
recent series found it difficult or impossible to discontinue them
because of severe withdrawal effects.  They or their reporting relatives
(especially parents of afflicted children) specifically used the terms
"addict" and "addiction."  Others who used comparable terms were
excluded even though they experienced similar withdrawal symptoms. The
FDA and members of Congress have been repeatedly urged by me and
thousands of outraged aspartame reactors to declare aspartame products
an "imminent public health hazard," and remove them from the market. The
mounting evidence for their causation or aggravation of headache,
seizures, depression, many neurologic disorders (most notably multiple
sclerosis), visual difficulty, allergies, diabetic complications, and a
host of other conditions — coupled with the potential for addiction —
can be ignored no longer.

  "The beginning of wisdom is to call things by the right names."
Chinese Proverb....ASPARTAME=RAt poison!

  "I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp
of experience." Patrick Henry (Speech to the Virginia Convention, 1775)

 Over half the adult population currently consumes products containing
aspartame (NutraSweet®, Equal®).  A multibillion-dollar industry
aggressively promotes thousands of items containing this chemical
sweetener that consumers use in prodigious amounts to avoid sugar or
lose weight... even though the latter intent often proves a delusion.

 I have described many serious side effects and medical/public health
hazards attributable to aspartame products(1-4).  The neurologic,
psychologic, eye, endocrine, metabolic and pediatric ravages in my data
base of over 1,200 aspartame reactors, comprised of both patients and
correspondents, are impressive.  Additionally, it is my increasing
conviction that aspartame products can cause, aggravate or accelerate
migraine (5), seizures (6), multiple sclerosis (3), diabetes and its
complications (7), Alzheimer's disease (8,9), and even brain tumors
(10).  The clinical and scientific basis for these assertions have been
detailed previously.

 Unfortunately, another tragic problem has been neglected:  addiction to
aspartame products.  Persons consuming large amounts not only may suffer
aspartame disease, but also have difficulty stopping them because of
violent and prolonged withdrawal reactions... the hallmark of addiction.
Recovered alcoholic patients repeatedly stated that they felt worse
after avoiding aspartame than alcohol, and asserted that they had traded
one addiction for another.  My experience, coupled with more than 10,000
consumers who volunteered their complaints to the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) and manufacturers, reflects the magnitude of this
widespread unrecognized affliction.

 In view of the controversial nature and implications of this subject,
clarification of my status at the outset is relevant.  I practised many
years as a primary care internist and medical consultant prior to
encountering aspartame disease.  I continue to remain corporate neutral
— that is, no grants, monies or other inducements were received from
industry, government or other institutions.


 This report focuses on 33 persons (5.6 percent) among the most recent
540 aspartame reactors in my series.  The terms "addict" or "addiction"
were specifically used either by patients or reporting relatives and
friends — notwithstanding the absence of these words in my 9-page
Aspartame Reaction Questionnaire Survey (3).  Persons using other terms
implying addiction (e.g., "severe craving") were excluded
notwithstanding the suffering of withdrawal symptoms.


 There were 22 females and 11 males.  Most were between 25 and 50 at the
time of consultation or correspondence.  Four children — ages 2-1/2, 3,
6, and 9-1/2 — were included (see Discussion).

The amounts of aspartame products consumed daily ranged up to six liters
or 12 cans of sodas, 20 or more tabletop packets, and considerable gum.
A number of persons gave the history of ingesting considerable iced tea
mixes containing aspartame, especially in hot weather, prior to the
onset of  clinical aspartame disease.

The manifestations of aspartame disease and the pathos of such addiction
appear in the case summaries.  The withdrawal symptoms (e.g., severe
irritability, tension, depression, tremors, nausea, sweating) usually
abated  promptly on resuming aspartame, along with an intense craving
for these products.  One woman noted:  "This was as bad as when I quit
smoking 13 years ago."  Examples of other pertinent clinical aspects are
briefly cited.

• As with other  addictions, denial and distortion were encountered.
The mother of two young children stated:  "I didn't want to believe
aspartame was the cause of my problems.  Even though anything with it
made me crave carbohydrates, I dismissed this as my imagination."

 • Several patients experienced severe withdrawal symptoms when they
traveled abroad and were unable to purchase aspartame sodas.  On the
possibility these features represented caffeine withdrawal, they tried
drinking more caffeine... but to no avail.

 • Some developed severe reactions when they also drank alcohol.  One
stated:  "My memory would just go completely."


A. The anguished friend of an aspartame addict stated:  "She could
hardly walk.  She could hardly see.  She was already going to a
neurologist because they thought she had multiple sclerosis.  But she
told me not to talk about it even though her physician already told her
that aspartame was the problem, especially after he started researching
its role in brain tumors — because two persons in her family died from
brain tumors!  When told aspartame would kill her, she said:  ‘I'm
addicted to it and can't live without it.  If they try to take it off
the market, I'll get it on the black market!'"

B. The wife of an addicted aspartame reactor wrote:  "I've told my
husband over and over again, as have several physicians, that his
problems would probably go away if he got off aspartame.  But he says he
is addicted and can't."  Provoked by her continued purchase of aspartame
sodas, the daughter-in-law asked whether she would hand him a gun if he
said he wanted to commit suicide.  She responded:  "Please don't say
anything else.  It's hard enough to watch him lose his memory, fall, and
hardly be able to walk.  I just want to make him happy."

C. A mother stated:  "My children are no longer allowed to drink diet
sodas or anything else with aspartame in it.  Unfortunately, I am
addicted to it.  I will try and wean myself—but boy, oh boy, it's not
going to be easy!"

D. A previous alcoholic patient expressed concern that he had traded
alcoholism for aspartame addiction.  He observed in a letter:  "There
are MANY just like me.  You will rarely see a recovered alcoholic
without a drink in hand, day or night, whether it be coffee or soda...
usually DIET.  We can hardly keep sweeteners on hand at our meetings.
MANY of us suffer from tremendous mood bouts.  If aspartame has
contributed to the difficulties I have had with depression and mood
swings, I WANT TO KNOW!"

E. The wife of a man consuming up to six liters of diet cola daily
concluded:  "He is truly addicted and unable to help himself... When not
drinking it, he is like a new person, or at least the person I once
knew.  But when he then drinks it after abstaining for a week (as a
result of  incredible determination), I see depression, verbal
aggression, a sense of hopelessness, inability to sleep, poor
concentration, trouble with eyesight, chest problems, and weight gain."

F. A female correspondent with aspartame-related panic attacks and
palpitations wrote:  "I heard about this problem and will be taking the
abstinence test.  It will be hard because I am addicted to diet cola.
Something has to be done!  It seems to me that capitalism is getting in
the way of our lives."

G. A woman with an "addiction to diet cola" refused to admit the
"ridiculous amounts I have been using, even to my  husband.  I have the
symptom of always being thirsty from aspartame.  What do I do?"

H. A woman with aspartame disease was misdiagnosed as having multiple
sclerosis.  She stated:  "I am convinced that aspartame was at the root
of my problem.  It is hard to convey just how much of this stuff  I was
using.  I used at least one large box of aspartame a week... for myself!
After my husband heard on a radio broadcast that it was bad, he told me
not to use it, and refused to buy it for me any longer.  I then
literally bought it weekly, hid it in the kitchen, and used it when he
was out of the room.  And people still don't believe it is addictive???"

I. An addicted young man with longstanding symptoms he ascribed to
aspartame sodas wrote:  "I drank a lot of pop with aspartame when I was
a kid in the 1980s, and felt bad.  After reading a page on the net about
insomnia, being lightheaded, having ringing in the ears, and feeling
unreal ‘like I was on something,’ I stopped.  But it's hard to make
yourself stop.  It took about two months before I felt better.  I think
most people who drink diet pop get addicted to it... like me.  At first
you don't seem to like the taste; then you crave it."

J. A 28-year-old woman previously drank as much as two liters of an
aspartame cola daily.  She stated:  "I was ‘addicted’ to it, and
suffered terrible muscle spasms, vertigo, dizziness, nausea, depression,
slurred speech, etc.  I stumbled across an article about the dangers of
aspartame, and was absolutely horrified.  Within seven days after
stopping, most of these symptoms disappeared.  I have had no recurrences
to date."

K. A hospital pharmacist with considerable knowledge about addictive
substances and drug abuse wrote:   "I have been a chronic user of diet
drinks for years, and always joked that I was ‘addicted’ to aspartame.
Recently, I decided to stop them, but I can't do it no matter how hard I
try.  When I'm not drinking these drinks, the people I work with and my
family have all commented that I act as if I'm going through heroin
withdrawal.  I also experience many problems while drinking them, the
most profound of which is joint pain" (see 11).

L. The mother of an aspartame addict gave a poignant followup of her
daughter's case, which I described previously (1, p. 98), when her
addiction recurred.  She had been incapacitated with aspartame disease
as a 23-year-old student.  In her own words, "My epileptic-type
seizures, and drastic personality and intellectual changes were so
severe as to end my marriage, nearly ruin my academic standing, and
caused me to lose my job."  After stopping her excessive consumption of
aspartame sodas, she evidenced clinical normalization, and then bought a
beautiful home.  The mother described her subsequent relapse.

  "About eight months ago, unknown to me, she began drinking
  considerable diet soda.  I learned a few days ago that she started
  drinking alcohol, plans to leave her fiance, and bought a motorcycle
  — exactly as she had done 12 years previously when drinking diet
  soda.  Her aspartame addiction makes her totally irrational.  She
  crusaded against aspartame for 12 years, and is now drinking it.
  I don't know where to go for help, especially because most
  doctors I know think aspartame is just wonderful!"

M. A woman wrote:  "I am probably one of the many ‘aspartame addicts’
you have come in contact with.  I have had a terrible diet cola habit of
drinking at least a 12-pack/day for many years.  I would love to change
because I believe my particular ailments could be related to aspartame.
Where do I go from here?  Please help!!"

N. The brother of a "recovered aspartame addict" related the details of
his sibling's case to a neighbor who was beginning to drink excessive
amounts of diet sodas.  He stated:  "I am hoping that he doesn't face
severe withdrawal the way my brother did.  After 5 or 6 bad bouts of
withdrawal, he was finally able to kick the habit."

O. An aspartame reactor invited her neighbors to a block party aimed at
urging them to avoid aspartame which would not be on the premises.  A
"very addicted" woman with severe dermatitis and fatigue had tried to do
so previously at the urging of her daughter, but resumed diet cola in
two weeks.  She went to the block party with a can hidden under her
jacket... but was promptly spotted.  She confessed:  "I'm sorry, I just
can't break the addiction.  I can't get off of it!"

P. A 36-year-old computer programmer experienced many symptoms
attributable to aspartame disease after he began using "a line of
products containing aspartame."  He would ingest as much as three or
four quarts of an instant iced tea in several flavors on weekend
afternoons during the summer.  Nearly one month of abstinence was
required before his symptoms abated.

Q. A 47-year-old female sought consultation by the author for
increasingly severe problems over the previous 1-1/2 years, during which
time she consumed large amounts of aspartame.  She began the day by
drinking three cups of coffee to each of which an aspartame tabletop
sweetener was added.   She then ingested 10-12 glasses or cups of
aspartame-sweetened beverages, and ate considerable amounts of aspartame

This patient gave a history of alcoholism and excessive amphetamine use
decades earlier.  (Amphetamines had been taken for extreme fatigue and
weight reduction.)  She joined Alcoholics Anonymous 20 years previously.
She was now happily married, and had taken only a single social drink in
five years.

Her main concern was increasing confusion and memory loss over the past
year -- especially because she prided herself on a "photographic
memory."  During this time, she also suffered severe headaches ("never a
problem before"), hearing difficulty ("as if my ears were covered"),
"lightheadedness with staggering," vertigo on lying down ("the room was
actually spinning"), attacks of severe nervousness and agitation,
intense hunger, a craving for sugar and sweets, intense muscle cramps,
pains in the legs and thighs, aching and stiffness of various joints,
marked intolerance to cold, and elevation of her blood pressure (noted
for the first time).  Dryness of the eyes became so bothersome that she
required one bottle of artificial tears a week.

Another distressing symptom was severe depression.  The patient
considered committing suicide on several occasions.  She had the good
fortune of belonging to a circle of caring friends who thwarted such an

The family history was also pertinent.  Both parents had been
alcoholics.  Her mother was "a potential diabetic," and her nephew a
juvenile diabetic.

After learning of the possible cause or aggravation of similar problems
in other persons from aspartame, she promptly stopped all such products.
She emphasized, however, that the ensuing "withdrawal symptoms" were far
worse than those experienced after discontinuing alcohol or
amphetamines.  On a regimen of an appropriate diet, supportive measures
and continued aspartame avoidance, her symptoms improved.  She no longer
needed the artificial tears.  An entire subsequent visit was devoted to
discussing her lifelong "fear of fat" that had initiated the use of
aspartame products.


Addiction to aspartame products is as real as abuse of tobacco, alcohol
and drugs.  The foregoing experience of a single alerted physician
attests to this clinical phenomenon.  In effect, the United States has
been the innocent victim of regulatory shortcomings related to the
initial and continued approval of aspartame products.

To my knowledge, this is the first report that addresses aspartame
addiction.   I have challenged colleagues to cite comparable instances
of gross denial in contemporary medicine concerning widely used drugs or
chemicals classified "Generally Recognized As Safe" (GRAS).  (Aspartame
was developed initially as a drug to treat peptic ulcer.)  Moreover, I
have repeatedly asserted that aspartame should not have been approved
for human use in view of  the high incidence of brain and other tumors
found in animal studies, and the absence of long-term trials in humans
using "real world" products exposed to prolonged storage and heat.

The plight of aspartame addicts has been compounded by (a) footdragging
of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) despite its own data base (12,
13), (b) the brainwashing of health professionals (especially doctors
and dieticians) from constant reiteration by pro-industry advocates that
aspartame disease does not exist, and (c) the refusal of some
addictionologists even to consider this issue.  The thousands of
complaints volunteered to the FDA, along with my independent data on
over 1,200 aspartame reactors, indicate the gravity of such

Exclusion of Related Terminology

 This report clearly underestimates the prevalence of aspartame
addiction.  I purposely excluded aspartame reactors who continued to
consume large amounts despite debilitating symptoms because they used
expressions other than "addict" and "addiction."  Some examples:

 • Many aspartame reactors described their "unnatural craving" for
aspartame products.  It was not limited to diet sodas — e.g., a woman
with a severe "craving" for aspartame chewing gum, especially after
meals.  In fact, the habitual chewing of such gum poses a unique great
threat (see below).

Olive Leaf Extract-the Amazing tree of life

Olive leaf extract

the tree of life- Olives, the ripe fruit of the tree, yield healthy monounsaturated fats and phytochemicals that act as potent antioxidants. Research on the benefits of olive oil abounds in scientific literature. Yet, people are still not aware of the amazing healing powers of another component of the olive tree, the leaves.

The olive tree, botanically designated as Olea europaea, brings to us a promising herbal product known as olive leaf extract. The ancient Egyptians regarded olive leaf as a symbol of heavenly power, and in keeping with that belief, they extracted its oil and used it to mummify their kings. The healing powers of olive leaf were realized as early as the 1880s when it was utilized to counteract malaria. According to the 1854 Pharmaceutical Journal of Provincial Transactions (pp. 363-354), Hanbury stated that a “decoction of the leaves” of the olive tree had been found to be extremely effective in reducing fevers due to a severe and otherwise often-fatal disease that swept the island of Mytilene in 1843. The olive leaf extract was reported subsequently to be more effective in its fever-lowering properties than quinine. Hanbury recalled that similar observations had been made in France and Spain between 1811 and 1828. It appears that in the early 19th century, Spanish physicians sometimes prescribed olive leaves as a “febrifuge,” and often used them to treat cases of intermittent fever (2). Hanbury concluded that the properties of the tree Olea europaea deserved more extensive investigation.

In the early1900s scientists isolated a bitter compound called oleuropein from olive leaf that was thought to give the olive tree its disease resistance. In 1962 an Italian researcher recorded that oleuropein had the ability to lower blood pressure in animals. Other European researchers validated that claim and also found it to increase blood flow in the coronary arteries, relieve arrhythmia and prevent intestinal muscle spasms. In the years to come, a Dutch researcher identified that a primary ingredient in oleuropein inhibited the growth of viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. This chemical was elenolic acid. Further European research determined this compound to have strong bactericidal, antiviral and antifungal capabilities. A safety study on calcium elenolate was tested with laboratory animals and published by the Upjohn pharmaceutical company in 1970. The study concluded that even in doses several hundred times higher than recommended, no toxic or other adverse side effects were discovered.

Health professionals first started using olive leaf extract in 1995 when it first became available. Although we do not have a long-term perspective as yet, initial results are very positive. We see a very promising and unique herb with multiple applications. It shows considerable therapeutic action against many common conditions. In short, it appears to be living up to its unique background and expectations.

From research and clinical experience to date, we can say that supplemental olive leaf may be beneficial in the treatment for conditions caused by, or associated with, a virus, retrovirus, bacterium or protozoan. Among those treatable conditions are: influenza, the common cold, candida infections, meningitis, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), encephalitis, herpes I and II, human herpes virus 6 and 7, shingles (Herpes zoster), HIV/ARC/AIDS, chronic fatigue, hepatitis B, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, malaria, dengue, severe diarrhea, and dental, ear, urinary tract and surgical infections.

Many people who live stressful lives or who may be particularly susceptible to colds and viruses may benefit from long-term use of olive leaf as a preventive agent. Some patients have expressed other unexpected benefits of olive leaf including improved psoriasis, normalization of heart beat irregularities, diminished cravings, and less pain from hemorrhoids, toothaches and chronically achy joints.

Research suggests that olive leaf may be a true antiviral compound because it appears to selectively block an entire virus-specific system in the infected host. It then appears to offer healing effects not addressed by pharmaceutical antibiotics. Olive leaf’s broad killing power includes an ability to interfere with critical amino acid production for viruses; an ability to contain viral infection and/or spread by inactivating viruses by preventing virus shredding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane; and the ability to directly penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication.

After exhaustive research, Dr. Hoffman is proud to announce his version of olive leaf extract. What makes this product so unique is the fact that it is standardized to contain a minimum of 20 percent oleuropein per capsule. The actual content can be as high as 23 percent. Remember, oleuropein is the active antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and antiparasitic component of olive leaf. Inferior products abound, partially due to confusion. For example, Dr. Hoffman’s own olive leaf extract contains 500 mg of olive leaf extract, standardized to 20 percent oleuropein per capsule and many people only focus on the 500 mg. Sure, I have found 500 mg capsules of olive leaf in health food stores, but the usual amount of oleuropein (the active component) is only 6 percent. The highest percent of oleuropein I have ever found in a bottle of olive leaf is 12 percent, and that costs $40 per bottle for 60 capsules. Additionally, many olive leaf extract supplements do not contain the listed amount of oleuropein. Dr. Hoffman specifically researched this fact and makes sure that his brand of olive leaf extract contains what is listed and functions exactly as he intends. Dr. Hoffman employs olive leaf extract for most bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal conditions. There are many unique uses for this medicinal herb. The key to the benefits of olive leaf extract is to find a product that contains enough of the active constituent to achieve the desired outcome.

homeopathic remedies and obstetrics

Almost any remedy might be called for in obstetrics and gynæcology but these are some that are frequently indicated.

     Arnica montana. During the later years of my obstetrical work, I gave Arnica 6X routinely to all of my obstetrical patients-following delivery, unless some other remedy was specifically indicated. It hastened recovery and relieved the soreness of the tissues. It also helped prevent any fever or other complications. The 6X potency was used instead of a higher one because in the modern hospitals of today, there are too many things used routinely that would interfere with a higher potency.

     Calendula. Calendula used externally is not really homœopathic, but I always kept a bottle of the tincture in the obstetrical department to be used on any sutures where there were lacerations.

     The obstetrical nurses were very careful to tell me when the bottle was getting empty, as they said that they had never seen anything relieve the soreness of lacerations as it did. Many doctors recommend diluting the Calendula, but I have found that it is more effective when used full strength, only applying it sparingly. It is also useful as a vaginal douche when diluted to one-fourth or fifth strength. I would not want to practice medicine without Calendula as it is practically the only antiseptic that we use loyally.

Dr William A. YINGLING (1851-1933)
Dr William A. Yingling

     Pulsatilla. One of the earliest complaints of the pregnant woman is morning sickness. It may vary from a condition which is merely disagreeable to one that is very serious. Choice of the remedy depends on the type of patient and the concomitant symptoms. Pulsatilla to for the timid, weepy peevish woman who is phlegmatic in temperament and slow in her reactions. Worse in the evening, cannot get to sleep at night. Chilly, yet aggravated by heat. Aggravated by rich food, by pork. No thirst. Pulsatilla is indicated in labor pains ceasing ; distressing ; spasmodic ; irregular ; too weak ; too strong ; too slow ; ineffectual. False pains and labor-like pains which make her walk about to obtain relief. Dr. W. A. Yingling, in his Accoucheur’s Emergency Manual, says that abnormal presentations may be righted if Pulsatilla is given before the membranes are ruptured or the presenting parts are finally engaged. Other remedies will do the same but Pulsatilla is probable more often indicated for such a condition. It is suitable for mild, fearful women, who are in an apparently healthy condition, yet the uterus seems almost inactive in the labor.

     Natrum Mur. The Natrum mur. patient is excitable, laughs immoderately at something not ludicrous, and then becomes sad and anxious. When consoled she become angry. Throbbing headache, pain as if the head would burst. Violent hiccoughs. Nausea is caused by bread, acids food, fats and the smell of tobacco. Worse in the morning, better from cold things. The nausea is accompanied by pyrosis and vomiting of thin watery fluid. Unquenchable thirst but craves salt. Natrum mur. may be indicated when labor pains are ineffectual.

     Ignatia. Ignatia has many of the symptoms of Natrum mur. but is characterized by hysteria, much sighing and sobbing. Nausea with weak sinking feeling in the stomach is relieved by eating or taking a deep breath. Craving for acids and indigestible things. Severe twitching and cramps, worse from pressure. The headache of Ignatia is usually a sharp, boring pain. Nervous spasms amounting almost to convulsions during labor. It is useful in nausea, arrested labor, after-pains and hæmorrhage where-indicated.

     Arsenicum album has nausea from sight or smell of food ; regurgitation of acrid matter, worse after eating or drinking. Craves small amounts of acid water often but loves warmth. Irritable, restless, anxious with fear of death. It is indicated in labor where there is a sense of exhaustion after every effort, however small.

     Nux vomica has pyrosis after acid or fatty foods and continual nausea, worse in the morning. Sleepless at night, irritable no appetite and constipated. Nux vom. may be indicated in metrorrhagia, false or inefficient labor pains and where after pains are too violent.

     Moschus has violent vomiting in the morning at the sight of food. Fainting, hysteria, violent rage. Feels cold, is better from warmth. There is aggravation from pressure, motion or cold. Sulphur is indicated in labor when the pains are too weak or cease and in cases of retained placenta, with hour-glass contractions. Symptoms are sudden and frequent flushes of heat all over the body, burning eructations, worse from warmth and at 11 A. M. There is great desire for sweets, aggravation from milk. Weakness at 11 A. M. and must eat, but eats little and drinks much.

     Cimicifuga racemosa is another remedy having a tonic effect on the uterus, preventing miscarriage. The patient is worse by touch, motion, cold air and better from rest. When abort pains are severe and tedious, Cimicifuga causes the pains to become rhythmic and softens the rigid os. It promotes normal involution and hastens recovery.

     It has nausea of pregnancy with severe frontal headaches with intense pain in the eyes, better from pressure. Dejection and incessant talking. It is used in the treatment of painful and irregular menstruation and in pregnancy where there is a tendency to abortion and given before term it renders labor easier, prevents after-pains.

     Aletris farinosa often gives relief in most obstinate vomiting of pregnancy and in weak persons with a tendency to abortion. There is weakness, constipation, loss of appetite, and nausea better from drinking coffee or eating dinner. It is also indicated in menorrhagia with profuse, very dark blood.

     Helonias, like the two preceding remedies, is a uterine remedy of great power, tonic in its effects on the prolapsed uterus and ligaments, valuable in threatened abortion and often in albuminuria of pregnancy, also. The breasts are sensitive and there ma, be severe backache, worse over the kidneys. Worse from motion cool air and better from warm air. When indicated it is helpful in amenorrhœa and dysmenorrhœa.

     Vipera torva is indicated many times in varicosities and phlebitis during pregnancy and the menopause. A striking modality is the sensation as if the legs would burst when hanging down. Also remember Hamamelis in knotty, swollen, painful varicose veins and ulcers.

     One could enumerate many more remedies valuable in obstetrics and gynæcology not mentioned here. In conclusion may I say that homœopathic prescribing prevents many complications in pregnancy, averts many malformations in the newborn and carries the patient through the menopause much comfortably than under any other form of treatment.

The writer is indeed perceptive in calling for references. Every statement against homeopathy turns out to be false, and there really aren’t any exceptions. Critics say homeopathy’s rule of “like cures like” has no correlatives in science. This isn’t true. In magnetic fields, like repels like. In chemistry, like dissolves like. In alcoholism, hair of the dog that bit you.“Bartender, methamphetamine for all my ADHD friends.

Apparently not, at least NOT YET. 

After it has been called to my attention, by one of our faithful readers, that the Marilyn vos Savant of “world’s smartest woman” fame has denied writing the letter that appeared under the same name in a comment responding to an online article, I am amending my assertions, equivocally.

Well, certainly it should come as no surprise that those of the highest echelons of intelligence have validated, used, supported or endorsed homeopathy. But really, what constitutes such a claim as the world’s most intelligent anybody? What about some of these evil geniuses? How smart, really, are they?

30 Years of Secret Official Transcripts Show UK Government Experts Cover Up Vaccine Hazards


WArning to all parents VACCINES are harming your children!

Originally posted on ________________Child Health Safety_________________:

[ED: Readers should note that a paper presented at a scientific conference is a citable reference for publication purposes.  That applies to Dr Lucija Tomljenovic's paper discussed in this article.]

An extraordinary new paper published by a courageous doctor and investigative medical researcher has dug the dirt on 30 years of secret official transcripts of meetings of UK government vaccine committees and the supposedly independent medical “experts” sitting on them with their drug industry connections.

If you want to get an idea of who is responsible for your child’s condition resulting from a vaccine adverse reaction then this is the paper to read. What you have to ask yourself is if the people on these committees are honest and honourable and acting in the best interests of British children, how is it this has been going on for at least 30 years?

This is what everyone has always known but…

Serious Facts about Dangerous vaccines!

photo by gina tyler

(Click here for more articles by Dr Viera Scheibner)

A note from Bronwyn Hancock: This note is just to ensure that all credit goes to Dr Viera Scheibner for the enormous amount of time and effort that she put into collecting and studying over 100,000 pages of medical research (before we had the internet!), that is the source of much of the medical (particularly the older) research referenced in those articles on this site that have been written by me. What I do on this site is try to summarise the knowledge gained from that extensive (and other) research into easy-to-read articles.

Step number one is to learn what is in vaccines.

Would you allow someone you don’t know to inject something you don’t know into your, your child’s or your pet’s body?

Vaccine Ingredients
The damage, including brain damage, resulting from these toxins can vary from mild enough not to be apparent, through to severe, in some cases death.

- Bronwyn Hancock – January 2002

Vaccine Adjuvants

Adjuvants are chemical substances which are added to vaccines to “boost” immune response, but many of them are known to cause a range of serious side-effects.

- Dr Viera Scheibner – Written for Nexus Magazine (December 2000-January 2001 and February-March 2001 issues (this article divided into Parts 1 and 2 respectively))

So will these poisons really be protective?

If you’re going to allow these injections of poisons, you will need to have some pretty solid scientific evidence that they will do the opposite of what common sense would lead you to expect.

Pneumococcal Vaccination

Newborns from six to eight weeks old in several “developed” countries, including the US, Australia, Canada and, from 4th September 2006, the UK, are now subjected to yet another vaccine that for some is fatal, which is the new pneumococcal vaccine, Prevenar.

- Bronwyn Hancock Apr 2005

Polio Vaccination. Perhaps the most repeatedly asked question is: “But what about polio?”
We have ALL been repeatedly told that vaccination saved the world from polio, and we have all believed this. So of course no-one would believe that vaccination is ineffective without having researched this subject. Here is the truth: in summary, and in full.

Dynamics of Critical Days as Part of the Dynamics of Non-specific Stress Syndrome Discovered During Monitoring with Cotwatch Breathing Monitor

This article, published in the Journal of ACNEM (Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine) in Dec 2004 contains the historic results of research into babies’ breathing conducted by Dr Viera Scheibner and the late Leif Karlsson (a biomedical electronics engineer) with Cotwatch breathing monitor, developed by Leif at Dr Scheibner’s suggestion in 1985/86. It was these results that first alerted Dr Scheibner to the toxic and sometimes lethal nature of vaccines, and provoked her to begin her in-depth research of the whole subject of vaccination.

Shaken Baby Syndrome – The Vaccination Link
Many infants who suffer from so-called ‘shaken baby syndrome’ may be victims of undiagnosed vaccine damage. The result can be incarceration of a parent effectively for doing no more than submitting to vaccinating their child. There is no existing evidence that shaking a baby can even cause these injuries.
- Dr Viera Scheibner 1998

Examples: Alan Yurko is incarcerated in Florida, and Alejandro Mendez Vargas, who in his state (Pennsylvania) could be facing the death penalty. Visit their sites to learn more and support them.

Also note: If your government department responsible for child welfare suspects (note: suspects, NOT proves) you of harming your child, ALL your children can be taken off you, and you’ll have to fight hard to get them back. When you signed the (Australian) Marriage Act 1961 (or similar in your country), you unknowingly gave such power to the State. (If you wish you can get divorced and then married again under common law.)

Vaccine Damage Frequency and Stories

So many stories have been recounted by parents about the effects, often very immediate, on their previously healthy normal children of vaccines that presenting just a few here might not do justice to showing the numbers. I think it is just as effective for us to point to the summarised stories recorded on VAERS, at Note how the VAERS files are greatly increasing in size each year – so don’t let anyone tell you that they have made the vaccines safer in more recent years.

This Swiss site: has also been set up as a place on which people can record adverse effects. Until recently the site was only in German, so the adverse effects to date (July 2010) have only been reported by people living in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but now it is in English and we encourage all who have experienced an adverse effect from vaccination (in themselves or their child) to report it here:

I would defy anyone to read the sequence of events in these cases and prove that the vaccines received were not responsible for their effects, including death, most of which deaths were recorded as SIDS. (Yet we continue to be subjected to “reassurance” that vaccines do not cause cot death!)

So then, how frequent are vaccine reactions? The “CSV File, VAERS data” file for 2006 has a total of 17,434 reports for the US. The number of births each year in the US is about 3,750,000. 17,434/3,750,000 is 4.6 in 1000, so that is the approximate chance of there being an adverse event report for any given individual. We then need to make a significant adjustment in order to establish the risk of a reaction actually occurring, whether or not it is reported, which is this:

Sandy Mintz informs us that: “Former FDA commissioner David Kessler has said that it is thought 1% of serious drug reactions are reported to the FDA. A vaccine manufacturer testified that in their experience, a passive system (which is what VAERS is) results in around 2%. …Parents are being told by their doctors that even deaths within hours are not related, and are being discouraged from filing reports.”

Further to that, there are the longer term effects, such as the delayed, or gradual development of, auto-immune diseases, or cancer (e.g. mesothelioma, multiple myeloma or other cancers caused by the SV40 monkey virus that we know is still contaminating polio vaccines.) The above figures, even the greater number of reactions that go unreported to which David Kessler was referring, would most likely not take these into account. My mother died of multiple myeloma which may well have been caused by a polio vaccine that she had when she was younger, but no doctor even thought of investigating that. Even if they did think of it, what would motivate them to suggest the possibility or investigate it?

To report an adverse event after vaccination in Australia, click here, where you need to go to section 1.5.2, which has all the information you need and links to forms that need to be filled in. You no longer have to be a medical doctor to report adverse events after vaccination, so we strongly encourage you to report adverse events to try to prevent the government using a lack of reports as an excuse to falsely claim that adverse events are rare.

“Well, my child’s had lots of vaccines and he/she’s fine.”

Many parents find it hard to believe that vaccines can be so dangerous (for their own children, anyway), because in the case of their own particular vaccinated children, they seem to them to be fine. This reasoning may seem logical on the surface but there are some important facts (apart from the ineffectiveness of vaccines) of which they are not aware or mindful and which need to be considered:

The History of Health – vaccination & other assaults on our immune systems

This interesting chronology, compiled by Val Valerian, shows how and why the world’s population has come to be inflicted with increasing numbers of vaccines even though they have never worked and have only been a health disaster. Only limited references are included, but many can be found on the internet (and elsewhere).

Further relevant note: In a recent Irish case (Best v Wellcome Foundation) the judge ruled that it was a bad batch of the whooping cough vaccine that caused the victim to develop permanent brain damage. Mrs Best located and presented to court the company’s internal memo stating that one particular batch of the three in one vaccine given to her son was a particularly reactogenic batch with a directive not to send all of it to the same area but disperse it so that there is no clustering of deaths and other serious side effects. Similarly, after four infants died of SIDS in Tennessee in 1979 within 24 hours of the administration of Wyeth’s DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) vaccine, Wyeth adopted a policy of sending only small batches to widely dispersed geographical areas, so if a batch caused serious adverse reactions, their statistical impact would be reduced.
