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.

Practical Application

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.

Homeopathy ….Anxiety +fear

Overcoming anxiety and fears
By Janet Gray

As people react in different ways to the same stress, says Janet Gray, homeopathy has so much to offer

One can think of all sorts of occasions in which fear and anxiety manifest themselves and cause difficulties in handling the situation. For example, one may be an entirely competent driver, but put into the context of a driving test, may go to pieces and fail. In such circumstances some people simply freeze, and are unable to think what to do next. Some break out in cold sweats and palpitations, while others have to dash off to the loo. A homeopathic remedy can be tailored to the individual reaction of the person.

Let’s look at some remedies in different situations. Take Mike, for instance. He was a 21 year-old motor cross competitor, who was extremely successful on the British circuit. When he went abroad to compete, however, for some reason he found himself “freezing” on the start-line, and doing very badly. He told me that his legs felt like jelly, and his mind just went blank – not knowing what he was meant to be doing. Gelsemium (false jasmine) soon put him right, with one dose the night before, and another one hour before each race. He was soon back to his previous form as British Supercross Champion.

I am frequently consulted about pre-examination nerves. Aconite is an excellent first-aid remedy – it will calm down the adrenalin levels instantly, but as it is not a deep-acting remedy, it will not result in a lasting cure. It can, however, be repeated as frequently as needed.

If the sufferer is extremely restless, unable to sit still, waking at two in the morning worrying about the forthcoming exam and sometimes feeling sick and shaky, a dose or two of Arsenicum album will soon dispel the nerves.

If, however, like Mike, the anxiety manifests itself as a complete inability to concentrate on the revision, and when confronted with the paper the mind goes blank, and the student is totally unable to recall any facts, the medicine needed is Gelsemium.

Other medicines that may be useful for exam nerves are Argentum nitricum, Lycopodium and Anarcardium. Like Gelsemium, the anxiety displayed by Argentum nitricum and Lycopodium is anticipatory. That is to say, the sufferer starts the symptoms when even just thinking about the forthcoming event, unlike Aconite and Arsenicum, which is more immediate.

The sufferer requiring Argentum nitricum will get the feeling that there is a tremendous hurry to get the work done, and that there will not be enough time for all the revision. They get very hot and bothered, and often suffer from palpitations. The stress brings on a craving for sweet things, but they also have a strong liking for salt, and may binge on sweet and savoury food alike.

The Lycopodium type conceals his nerves better, but at a great cost to his guts. He has great ambition, and is determined to do well, but his own high standards cause their own stress. He may well develop irritable bowel syndrome, dyspepsia or migraine. He also likes sweet foods, but they disagree with his stomach, causing bloating and wind! On the day of the exam he will probably acquit himself well, but is dogged by reversing letters, or failing to think of the right word.

We tend to think of Anarcardium for memory disorder and depression, so it can be very useful for teenagers getting in a right state over their exams. They have great difficulty remembering what they have revised and completely lose their confidence. So great is the psychological disturbance due to the stress of possible failure, that they may be driven to suicide.

Problems at school
Another area of stress for which I am frequently consulted, is that of school in general. Younger children may be unhappy at school for various reasons: they may be being bullied, they may have a very strict teacher of whom they are scared, they may have difficulty making friends.

Sarah, aged 10, was brought to see me suffering from tummy aches, which had begun two years previously when a new girl started at school, who “took over” her best friend. She was a sensitive girl who was often anxious and worried about being told off in class. On starting school at the age of five, she had displayed considerable separation anxiety, and even now her mother suspected that sometimes the tummy aches were a ploy to be able to stay home with her. She often had a sweaty head and hands, and loved eggy bread, but hated milk. At two or three in the morning she would wake with a bad dream, often of dead men, and would go into her parents’ bedroom for comfort. She was scared of heights and thunder.

I gave her Calcarea carbonica, which not only settled her tummy aches, but also helped her with her self-confidence, and she started making new friends.

Penny, aged nine, hated school, even though she made friends easily, and had two special friends there. I eventually discovered that her problems had started when a disabled child was admitted to the school, and this distressed Penny immensely. She could not bear to see the child in her wheelchair and was so upset that she would cry all night. She often felt sick with her anxiety. She also worried about the state of the world, and the health of her parents and loved ones. At night she had to have a light on, and she hated going to stay with her grandparents as they had a “scary house”. She often dreamed of burglars. With this degree of sensitivity and caring, Phosphorus was well indicated, and I gave her one dose per week until she settled. After one month, she was attending school happily, and was not so anxious when around the disabled child.

Teen troubles
Teenagers have worries other than exams, because growing up is a stress in itself. John was one such lad, who at the age of 16 started having episodes of fainting. His GP had excluded any serious pathology and had put it down to “nerves”. John told me that he hated school and he hated being a teenager. He was self-conscious of his spots and felt that his girlfriend had gone off him. He was avoiding social situations because of the fear of fainting. Over the past year he had grown rapidly, and his appearance was that of a lanky bean-pole. His mother complained of the terrible smell from his shoes, and although he admitted to being sweaty, he was very chilly. One of his complaints was headaches, which were helped by wrapping his head warmly, but his bobble hats made him feel more self-conscious. At school he lacked confidence and under-achieved. His teachers made the common comment – “could do better”, but somehow he lacked the ability to try.

I gave him Silica, one dose weekly, and after a month his skin had cleared and he had had no further fainting episodes.

There are all sorts of other situations that can be helped by homeopathy, such as fear of flying, going for interviews, public speaking and appearing on the stage. For patients suffering from chronic anxiety, such as panic attacks and agoraphobia, the case must be taken in depth by a qualified practitioner in order to achieve effective relief, but in acute situations, such as examination nerves, the general public can reach for the Aconite bottle with confidence.

Study: Monsanto’s Roundup causes “gluten intolerance”

Study: Monsanto’s Roundup causes “gluten intolerance”

by Jon Rappoport

February 21, 2014

A recent study proposes that gluten intolerance and celiac disease are on the rise as a result of glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide.

The National Library of Medicine states that celiac disease “damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats.”

The study authors, Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff, have a different view. They point out that this rise in celiac disease parallels the increase in the use of Roundup, and the effects of glyphosate are those listed for celiac disease.

Here is the abstract of their study [Interdisciplinary Toxicology,, 2013, Vol. 6 (4), 159-184]: “Glyphosate, pathways to modern diseases II:…

Rabbits and homeopathy

info from
Dr. Newkirk discusses the use of homeopathy in chronic disease and as a preventive:

One of the major areas in which we use homeopathy in rabbits is chronic disease, for example in chronic urinary or respiratory illness. When treated allopathically, the long duration of the condition can result in the overuse, leading to possible abuse, of antibiotics. This often damages the intestinal flora and may weaken the immune system. The immune system needs to be boosted, the urinary or nasal passages detoxified and cleaned, and the ‘environment’ of the organ drained.

Conventional drugs can’t do that. No matter how good the medication is, unless the body is helping, the disease will remain. Homeopathy helps the body help itself. The potency administered depends on the condition of the rabbit. If debilitated and weak, low potencies must be used. If a strong vital force is present, then higher potencies are employed.

Homeopathy is also beneficial as a preventive. An immune-boosting remedy can be added to the water, for example, and this is very useful when there is more than one rabbit. Here we would use a lower-potency mixed remedy because we would not be treating a particular rabbit.

When a rabbit needs medical attention, tests and radiographs will help the veterinarian make a diagnosis and prescribe remedies and other considerations for home care. In addition to following the veterinarian’s recommendations, caregivers may wish to discuss an emergency kit for those times when medical care may not be readily available (e.g., the midnight hours). Below are some remedies that Dr. Newkirk feels are appropriate for an at-home emergency kit:
•Arnica montana (or, Arnica): For wounds and injuries new and old that result in bruising, bleeding (often with unbroken skin). Reduces shock. Used before and after procedures that may cause bleeding or bruising of tissue (e.g., surgery, dental care).
•Hypericum perforatum: For open wounds with damage to nerve endings; dulls pain.
•Ignatia: Helpful with grief. May aid in calming the digestive system.
•Lycopodium clavatum: Reduces gas and digestive upset; can be used in combination with Nux vomica. Also useful for urinary conditions.
•Magnesia phosphorica: Soothes muscle cramps (e.g., abdominal).
•Nux vomica: Reduces gas and digestive upset.
•Pulsatilla: Especially good for thick, purulent discharge (e.g., nasal).
•Silicea (or, Silica): Useful for abscess when fever is not present; helps promote discharge of pus and healing.

It should be noted that high and low doses of the same remedy may effect different healing, thus emphasizing the need for consultations with a qualified veterinarian. In all cases, treatment stops as soon as symptoms cease. Treatment periods will vary with the condition.

A temporary aggravation of the symptoms (sometimes referred to as a curative crisis) can occur after the correct remedy is administered but before the cure is completed. This tends to occur more often with classical homeopathic remedies and can be especially noticeable in chronic disorders.


Homeopathy, with its tremendous power to heal, is not entirely harmless. This is especially true in chronic cases, long-standing cases, and those with pathological changes such as tissue destruction or deep lesions. Thus, having your rabbit treated by a veterinarian trained in homeopathy is very important. (Reference the resources via link to website)

malaria and homeopathics

thanks to’Articles’
The Homeopathic Treatment of Malaria

(Part of this material is excerpted from our upcoming book, Travel Well Naturally: What You Need to Know to Stay Healthy Wherever You Go, Narayana Publishers, 2013)

What is Malaria, How is it Spread, Why Is It a Problem?

The word malaria comes from 18th century Italian: mala (bad) and aire (air). At that time it was believed that the illness was caused by bad air in marshy areas. It was first discovered in 1880 that malaria was a parasitic disease transmitted by the female Anopheles mosquito, which needs blood for her eggs, and has previously sucked the blood of a person infected with malaria. It is well and good to say that there is a place and purpose for every creature on the planet, but it is challenging to find the redeeming virtues of the mosquito, particularly one who spreads malaria. When the mosquito bites an infected person, a minute amount of the Plasmodium parasite is the blood is passed on. About one week later that same infected mosquito finds another human victim, at which time the parasites mix with the saliva of the mosquito and are infected into the human host. In the human body, the parasites multiply in the liver, then infecting red blood cells. Malaria can be transmitted person to person through organ transplants, shared needles or syringes, blood transfusion, and from mother to baby during labor. Not only does poverty lead to conditions fostering the spread of malaria, but, the detrimental effect of malaria on health also predisposes to poverty.

Up to 40% of the world population in 100 countries at risk for malarial infection, resulting in infection of 300-500 million people and over one million deaths each year. The Anopheles mosquito lives in most tropical and many subtropical areas of Central and South American, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the South Pacific The greatest number of fatalities occurs in sub-Saharan Africa, where up to 60% of hospital admissions are attributed to malaria. Every thirty seconds a child somewhere in the world dies of malaria, as well as being responsible for low-birth-weight babies, growth retardation, still births, and infant mortality. Each year a staggering ten percent of the global population is infected with the disease. No effective malaria vaccine has been developed, despite tireless effort on the part of many researchers around the world, including the Malaria Foundation International and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Eradication Goal. Drug-resistant strains are spreading and global warming is making the problem by gina tyler

The likelihood of your contracting the disease, as a traveler, depends on where you are going, how long you will be there, what time of year, altitude, whether you stay in rural or urban areas, style and conditions of travel, and what preventive measures, including the use of mosquito netting, repellents, staying indoors after dark, avoiding rainy season travel, and the use of prophylactic medications. It takes seven to twelve days after infected for the symptoms to appear, longer if you are taking prophylactic medications or have some immunity from previous infections. Multiple re-infections are common, and may be asymptomatic Early-stage symptoms are flu-like:

fever, chills with shaking, sweats, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, headache, and general malaise. Symptoms are often cyclic, due to the life cycle of the parasites as they develop, reproduce, and are released from red blood and liver cells. This cyclic nature is one of the main indicators that it is indeed malaria. Also common are dry cough, muscle and back pain, and an enlarged spleen. Malaria may cause anemia and jaundice. Infection with the Plasmodium falciparum malarial parasite is more serious and can lead to kidney failure, seizures, mental confusion, coma, and death.

Conventional Prophylaxis and Treatment

Recommended prevention against mosquito bites includes wearing long sleeves and pants and light-colored clothes. and using DEET on exposed skin (controversial because of its toxicity) twenty minutes after applying sunscreen. Anti-malarial medication, usually quinine-based, can cause undesirable side effects, and is not necessarily the prophylaxis of choice for those who live, work, or spend a lot of time in high-risk areas, who would have to spend much of their lives taking them. Artemisinin, made from the sweet wormwood plant, now rivals quinine drugs in terms of its rapid effectiveness with malaria. The plants has been used by Chinese herbalists for over 1500 years to treat malaria. A watchful eye is advised because there is a black-market version that contains only chalk.

The most common anti-malarial drugs include Choroquine, Quinine sulfate, Hydroxychloroquine, Mefloquine, and Malarone. Drug-resistant malaria is a major ongoing obstacle to treatment and to the search for new, effective drugs. In many areas of the world, Chloroquine is considered ineffective because of it.

Homeopathic Medicines Used Historically for Malaria

The following are single –dose homeopathic medicines used to treat malaria:
Arsenicum album (Arsenic): Intense fever with burning heat. Exhausted, pale. Unquenchable thirst for sips. Clean tongue. Anxious, restless. Cold.
China officinalis (Peruvian bark, the source of quinine): Periodic fevers. Chill, sweating, headache, nausea, weakness. Little thirst. Anxiety. Peruvian bark was the very first substances proved by homeopathy’s founder, Samuel Hahnemann, and made into a homeopathic medicine.
Eupatorium peroliatum (Boneset): Bone pain as if they will break. Muscle soreness, vomiting, chill. Thirst and bitter vomiting. Pressure forehead.
Natrum muriaticum (Sodium chloride): Violent headache. Chill begins at 10AM. Weak, short of breath, bone pain. Fever blisters lips. Great thirst.

A Promising Homeopathic Protocol for Prevention and Treatment

We recently attended an inspirational National Center for Homeopathy webinar presented by Didi Ananda Ruchira, a homeopath in Kenya who treats many patients with malaria, mostly destitute ( Having lived and provided homeopathic and natural health care in Africa for ten years, Didi was deeply concerned about the ineffectiveness of conventional treatment of malaria. Her observations were the following:
The local population rarely uses mosquito nets, are at high-risk for infection, and contract malaria frequently.
Drug-resistance is common, which may result in milder symptoms over time.
P. falciparum is particularly virulent, and poor immune status, such as HIV infections, malnourishment, or childhood, increases risk.
Children, especially vulnerable, may die or, if they survive, may suffer from lifelong brain damage, seizures, paralysis, or mental retardation.
Local residents typically went to their corner kiosk and purchased outdated Chloroquine medications, self-treated or to a nearby government hospital or community clinic where they were likely to be misdiagnosed and, often, to receive inadequate treatment. Lingering side effects were common. Success with traditional herbalists was also limited.

Didi dedicated herself to finding a more effective alternative to help these

people. She first looked into the Ayurvedic herb, neem (Azadirachta indica), which had been described as having anti-malarial activity as far back as 2000B.C. Neem leaf extract was found to significantly increase red blood cell oxidation, interfering with normal development of malaria. The plant also lowers fever and increases appetite, allowing a more speedy recovery. Neem, however, has not shown effectiveness in preventing malaria infection once in the body. She prepared a very low-potency 2X Neem product to take daily for two to three weeks in order to destroy any remaining parasite and break the cycle of recurrent malaria. This medicine has been given successfully to thousands of Masai tribal people in Tanzania.

Didi researched the homeopathic materia medica and selected China sulphuricum (Sulphate of quinine) to detoxify individuals from the ongoing side effects of quinine and drug poisoning. The final prong of the three-step programs is a malaria nosode (medicine prepared homeopathically from the four malaria Anopheles mosquitoes) combined with the four homeopathic medicines mentioned earlier in this article.

The protocol is as follows:

Start Neem 2X once a day. Continue for three weeks. For the first five days,

while taking Neem, add China sulphuricum 30C. On day 6, start MalariX, which contains Malaria nosode, China, Natrum muriaticum, Arsenicum album, and Eupatorium perfoliatum. Take 1 dose a day for 3 days, then 1 dose every 2 weeks. Continue taking one dose of MalariX every two weeks as long as the possibility of acquiring malaria exists.

Didi makes it clear that there is no funding available for laboratory research of her program. It is strictly anecdotal. However, the protocol has been used at eighteen clinics in Kenya. There is an unpublished study on her work: In September, 2007, she partnered with a local NGO to distribute the MalariX 3-step program to 100 families living on the shores of Lake Victoria. Didi conducted a survey, as best she could given limited funding, compliance, and myriad other challenges. Of the thirty-four respondents who participated, only four (12%) suffered an attack of malaria or malaria-like symptoms. She has found her program to help prevent, as well as to treat, malaria.

More Research Needed

Didi is the first to admit that what has been done so far is only preliminary, that well-funded, proper research would be excellent, and that her population is extremely limited. However, given the difficulty of finding adequate funding and dissemination of homeopathic research, the dire poverty and lack of effective health care for the population with which she is working, these results impressed us as did the sincerity of her mission. Whatever efforts to find successful treatment options, conventional and natural, for this global, often fatal, disease, will be worthwhile.

The Gift of Drama

The Gift of Drama
By Gina Tyler DHOM

You Choose Between Stagnant,content,happily-ever-after
Drama,motion,change,rebirth and conflict.

To grow Mature Heal and become Aware We need to find “DRAMA”.
Without it we stay stagnant in our belief,life,dietary habits,friends,healing and choices.

Drama creates meaning-actions-shedding-rebirth. This may be applied to everything one looks at.
For instance the planet,universe,yourself,family,relationships,work and your health.

“Happily-ever-after” sounds fantastic just like a dream ending in a fairy tale but is this really best for us?

Lets use this as an example; A very affluent family that has it all, a glorious home plenty of money, material objects, beauty and fame.
Can this be a façade for other issues such as depression suppression, suicidal tendency, guilt fear sadness or grief?
You might think ‘not’
This “Golden cage” sounds too good to be true You might say to yourself “I want this too”.
This same family might come from generations of royalty, but is their health in question are they truly happy?

Looking Deeper you see the hidden family secrets of abuse rape incest cruelty mental illness infidelity and obsessive neurotic behavior.
You may ask: How long has this Incubation of suppression lasted?

The Urge to move restlessly and to seek drama has acted out via manifestations seen in severe health imbalances passed onward in secret through generations (homeopaths call Predisposed Miasmic influence).

Individual catastrophic events start to unfold A change-’drama’ is happening. This is a good thing.

Understanding change is understanding nature, we must learn to deal with it and not suppress it.

So when we suffer illness we are shaken up, to confront it head on is a ‘good’ thing……
But we may miss the mark altogether , How you may ask? By unconsciously suppressing it by “Having someone else deal with it”…………

Example; “I will go to my MD and get a prescription or book a surgery so it will just go away and get better”…………..Doing nothing to creatively alter the CAUSEFACTORS like lifestyle habits , and conflicts “WE really don’t get it”.

“I cant deal with the drama of my illness (or child’s illness) I want a professional to handle it quickly”.

So does this sound familiar ,it does to me I’m sure I’ve said this before……have you?

The Golden cage does not exist but in theory mere fairy tales. Life is in constant motion turmoil change and usually in conflict.

Archetypical philosophy on homeopath, the esoteric outlook on psychological healing “JUNG” called Psychic infection.

The psychological immune reaction caused by repression and suppressions in a life span affect the core of our constitution and communication.
Subtle awareness of this ‘language’ should be discussed.

Unfolding this psyche gives homeopaths the potential clues into the ‘essence’ of a patient.
The phenomenon of homeopathic healing and how it can untangle the unconscious messages of illness introduced via conflicts trauma and stress.

As a homeopath it is important to look for clue’s deep within each patient as to how the equilibrium has faltered.

Clearly discussing the depths of psychology self consciousness dreams ego and how these can all be paths to illness.

As these transitions occur there is an overload in the physical organism.

Finding the ‘archetypical essence’ via the simillimum is the road to healing.

Within the stage of Drama we uncover this perfect ‘golden cage’ to see inward that its merely flesh and blood with many imbalances and imperfections in ’stasis’.

Best ways to detox from heavy metals,pesticides,pollutants

photo by gina tyler25 Best Ways to Detox From Heavy Metals, Pesticides, Environmental Pollutants, and Metabolic Waste

July 26, 2013 thanks to;Natural Health, Natural Medicine


If you are endlessly tired, irritable, have trouble losing weight, or feel depressed, you might be suffering from the environmental onslaught of toxins being poured into our air, water and soil by greedy corporate monopolies. If you aren’t sure whether you are suffering from toxic overload, you can at least be certain you are not immune to the toxic effects of environmental pollution like oil spills, fracking, chemtrails, nuclear energy (think Fukushima), or even the domestic production of war materials. Even every day items like shampoo and rug cleaners also contain thousands of chemicals that are deadly toxic in higher dosages.

From concern about BPAs to heavy metals, pesticide residues and GMO foods, its time to take an offensive, instead of defensive, view of our health. Here are more than two dozen ways to purify the body from these ill-imagined pollutants:

1. Support the liver and gallbladder with beetroot. Beets are a valuable source of iron, magnesium, zinc and calcium which all support healthy detoxification and better elimination. They are also full of B3, B6, C, and beta-catoene, important nutrients for supporting the liver and gallbladder in making bile acids which support detox.

2. Drink more purified water. Water is one of the most vital ways of self-purification on the planet. It helps every single cell get rid of waste and allows us to excrete toxins through our urine and bowels, as well as through our skin via sweat.

3. Bathe in Kaolin clay or use acalcium montmorillonite clay as they are considered the best for removing pesticides from the body.

4. Reduce your meat and dairy intake since these animals are often fed on GMO-rich diets.

5. Consume more pantethine, a biologically active form of the B5 vitamin, which can help open blockages created by pesticide consumption. When we are too clogged with pesticides our bodies cannot naturally detoxify themselves.

6. Use activated charcoal. It is very safe to consume up to 20-30 grams a day mixed with purified water. Activated charcoal binds to pesticides and other environmental toxins and then ushers them through the intestines to be purged form the body. You can also supplement with molasses after using activated charcoal just to be sure to replace important minerals the charcoal might leech from the body in the process of getting rid of the unwanted toxins.

7. Eat more citrus. Pectins in citrus are a very powerful detoxifying substance. Citrus naturally remove heavy metals without depleting the body of important trace minerals.

8. Create an alkaline state in he body by eating more organic fruits and vegetables that support multiple channels of detoxification in the body. They clean the liver, the bowels, the skin, the blood, etc.

9. Eat more fiber. When we eat fiber, the liver can more easily flush toxins through the digestive system and we take an immense load off an organ that is constantly trying to get rid of toxic substances from the body. High fiber foods include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, potatoes (including their skin), etc.

10. Eat more grapefruit containing naringenin, a special flavanoid that helps the liver burn fat instead of storing toxins in our fat cells.

11. Eating garlic can help boost detoxification since it helps to boost the production of white blood cells, otherwise known as lymphocytes, an important part of the immune system as well.

12. Eating asparagus can educe the levels of pesticides in the body.

13. Eating organic, free-range eggs can also help to remove toxins from the body. They also boost energy levels.

14. Increasing your levels of vitamin C is so good for you, and detoxing the body that it was found this vitamin could help reduce levels of radiation exposure, even in people who were living near Fukushima.

15. Native Americans have been using sarsaparilla for hundreds of years in teas and tinctures as a way to effectively detox the blood. It also effectively treats liver, kidney and skin conditions.

16. Exercising and staying active is vital to keeping impurities out of the body. Just 30 minutes to an hour every day brings oxygen rich blood to the liver and kidneys, thus supporting them in detoxifying the body.

17. Eating brazil nuts, which are full of glutathione, a natural detoxifying substance, can help the body get rid of pesticides and other harmful toxins. Also, full of selenium, Brazil nuts help to create more glutathione. Sometimes called the mother of all antioxidants.

18. Our skin is one of the biggest organs of detoxification. It covers about 22 square feet and we replace skin cells every single day. Dry brushing is a great way to help support the skin in detoxing the body through sweat, bathing, etc. If our pores are clogged, the skin becomes less effective. Dry brushing also helps encourage lymph flow that helps to flush toxins from the body.

19. Take Milk Thistle. Sylibum marianum, also known as Milk thistle is a great support for the liver. Long with helping the body detox, this herb has been linked to reduction in certain cancers, reduced diabetes and even reduction digestive disorders.

20. Consume Essiac Tea, which cleanses the body and also has anti-cancer properties. This tea can help the body rid itself of pesticides used with GMOs, and ground-spraying including permethrin.

21. Eat your sea vegetables. Algin in seaweeds helps to absorb toxins form the digestive tract (in much the same way that water softener removes hardness from tap water) so they can be eliminated more easily. They also offer the largest range of vital trace minerals that can help to clean the blood.

22. Consuming dandelion greens and roots can help to detox the body due to their high levels of antioxidants but also help to support liver decongestion.

23. Use broccoli sprouts in your salads to ingest important substances that help with detoxification: sulphorophanes, indole-3-carbinol and D-glucarate. Sprouts also contain up to 20 times more sulfurophane than regular, full grown broccoli plants.

24. Eat flaxseed and flaxseed oil to help detox the body. This super food is full of fiber and Omega 3s, both important substances for detoxification.

25. Add turmeric to your recipes. This root is full of Curcumin, used often in Ayurvedic Medicine to treat liver and digestive disorders, and a great detoxing agent.

Interview with Homeopath Gina Tyler, DHom
by Gina Tyler, DHom
Editor´s Note from Judith Hanna Doshi: After reading Gina’s interview, I am so proud to be a part of the community of homeopaths. The determination that she demonstrated to provide homeopathic aid to the people of Indonesia–both in direct treatment and teaching them how to self-prescribe for acute ailments–is astounding. A shining example of the empowering ability of Homeopathy and the dedication of the homeopathic profession!

AS: Can you tell us something about your background and how you got involved with homeopathy?

GT: I was born June 12th, 1957 in Java, Indonesia and subsequently moved to the Netherlands. I am presently working in California. My interest in homeopathy blossomed when my mother became very sick with rheumatoid arthritis, which she’s had for about 20 yrs. I watched allopathic MDs giving her toxic drugs year after year, with no results. Her immune system was being destroyed from all these drugs. Not only were they not helping, it was causing crippling adverse effects. She lost so much weight and fell to just 80 pounds. My family moved from the Netherlands to California, thinking the weather would benefit my mother’s health. The severe freezing cold in Holland is not welcome when you have Arthritis. I was already extremely interested in herbalism but had just used it on myself. I made a giant move to try and help my mother overcome this disease with (the use of my obstinate personality and) the study of plant medicine. I started by trying to convince her to change her eating and drinking habits, stopping foods that were toxic to her and things she was drinking that were working against her journey towards health. In the case of Arthritis, foods such as the nightshade family must be avoided. Many methods of alternative meds were introduced into my mother’s life from then on. Starting with Ayurveda and all its treatments of massage—Panchakarma—using plant oils of various kinds. Each day she had to drink a detoxing liquid called Ghee and used a special breathing technique called Pranayama. All of this helped a lot, but I wanted more for her. I started my journey to Homeopathy by going to the alternative healing bookstores and spending hours sitting on the floor reading about Homeopathy. I found a few books to take home and began to study. The book that stood out the most was Miasmatic Diagnosis, written by Dr. Subrata Banerjea. After reading this I wanted more and looked up this author, finding out that he taught homeopathy in Calcutta, India. The journey has not stopped from that point on. I flew to India and took the clinical course. To my amazement, I was not prepared enough. I should have taken more of the basic lessons in homeopathy before I engulfed myself in the intensive hands-on clinic in Calcutta. I came back to California and more years of study followed. I was also making use of all Reflexology, Herbs, Aromatheraphy and Kinesiology. Today as I write, the update on my mother is amazing. She is healthy, strong and energetic. She is the proper weight for her size and travels with me to all corners of this planet. She is the only one out of all her friends age 65-75+ that doesn’t have scores of prescription
drugs in her medicine cabinet. In fact, she only uses homeopathy and a few herbs!

AS: How did you first get involved in volunteer work?

GT: My introduction to volunteer work as a homeopath came from my clinical homeopathic work in Calcutta India under the guidance of Dr. S.K. Banerjea. He runs many slum clinics for the poor and also a mobile homeopathic bus that makes stops in extremely poor areas of Calcutta. I was in Calcutta with Banerjea for about a month. We went to all the slum clinics in the homeopathic pharmacy bus. It was loaded with homeopaths and remedies. The door would swing open in the back and patients would line up for hours in the heat. For each patient a case taking was done, remedies dispensed and a cup of milk was given. At the end of the day I would be dizzy with overload from all the patients, the dirt, the hunger. I felt exhausted but happy. We also saw patients in the main teaching clinic “Bengal Allen Medical Institute”.

AS: How did you get involved in relief for Tsunami victims?

GT: In 2004 the Tsunami on the Indonesian Island of Sumatra (Indonesia has 13,000 islands) killed 300,000 people. I am half Indonesian (born on Java) and the second I heard about this horrific event I had to do something to help. I thought my homeopathic knowledge would come in handy. Donating money was not an option as I fully understood the corruption of politicians hoarding the funds for themselves. Hands on volunteer work seemed to make the most sense. My first attempt to round up aid for the Indonesian trip was to contact all the homeopaths I knew, then the on line forums, schools, homeopathy organizations etc. I needed funds, homeopathic books and remedies. I sent proposals by email for months. This was the basic plan: a) Help in remote health clinics—work hands on as a homeopathic volunteer; b) Teach homeopathy for acutes—101 of basic homeopathy, so the work could continue after I left; c) Bring donated homeopathic remedies to Indonesia; d) Open up doors of communication for future homeopaths who might go there to help. After nine months of frustrating rejections there was no help, no funds and no volunteers to join me. (Two homeopaths offered to send homeopathic emergency kits and a few books.) In the end one homeopath (Genevieve) agreed to meet me in Indonesia. She was a lively 24 year old from Toronto, who had recently graduated in homeopathy. I must say that the major organizations largely ignored my pleas. I received some homeopathic books and remedies from Hpathy team member Dr. Leela. A packet of remedies from Dr. Mass in Pakistan came later while I was already in Bali.

AS: What were some of the difficulties you faced?

GT: I finally entered Indonesia September of 2005 and found a few health clinics in Bali, which were willing to take me in and let me do volunteer work as a homeopath. Getting remedies into Indonesia was a challenge. I had to hand carry them in my luggage. Homeopathy is not illegal in Indonesia, but is simply not known here. If I was searched and they found all the pills, which look like drug contraband, I would be thrown in jail before any explanation was allowed. The punishment for contraband is the death penalty. Another option was to send remedies by post, but customs agents often request bribes (which can be expensive) and even that doesn’t guarantee supplies will get through. I tried both methods but was not happy with either. In the end, I managed to bring in with my luggage my own remedies, cell salts, vitamins, Bach flower remedies and homeopathic literature on acutes. I made a number of trips to Indonesia. Subsequently a homeolab in Spain “Iberhome labs” donated thousands of vials of remedies . A homeopath in Spain named Andres sent the remedies and paid for the shipping costs. I was in heaven! Finally a break! These remedies will last forever, I thought. They could be provided to several clinics in the area and be sent to Sumatra where the tsunami hit so hard in 2004. I had plenty to work with. Another problem was translating different languages, understanding local customs and traditions. The word homeopathy does not exist in their dictionary (Kamus). There was no homeopathic literature, no books like Materia Medica, repertory etc. in the Native Bahasa tongue. I had to write down information about homeopathy and then explain it verbally, using multiple translators.

AS: Who did you teach in Indonesia and how were you received?

GT: I taught homeopathy to allopathic MDs, Midwives, other health care workers, social workers and teachers. They were extremely receptive and open minded and the language problem was the only obstacle. People would gravitate toward me and ask about why I was on that island, what was I doing, what is homeopathy…a million questions. They were extremely curious and receptive, no rhetoric about “Oh that does not work”, and “Homeopathy is only placebo”, I didn’t hear that once. In fact it was a relief compared to working in the USA where your defense for homeopathy becomes a daily ritual as the population has been rather brainwashed by the media and drug TV commercials. The method of teaching was only at the acute level of prescribing. There wasn’t time for anything beyond that. I printed out the basic principles, dispensing methods, acute symptomatology and some keynotes of materia medica. I would take three translators with me. I wish there were homeopathic books written in Bahasa Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesian is the common language spoken in all of Indonesia), but each of the 13,000 Indonesian islands have several of their own native dialects that vary extremely. Maybe if B. JAIN publisher is reading this they can translate some of their massive database into Bahasa Indonesian. The Balinese people are the poorest of poor, the best salary paying around a dollar a day for a twelve hour day. Many don’t have a job. They sleep in huts made from grass and bamboo, on a dirt floor (sometimes cement). When it comes to medicine, they mostly live off the land with medicinal plants they have used for thousands of years called “Jamu”.They are very open to the idea of energy healing. Hands on Reiki type work, medicine men chanting, spiritual healing, healing energy from plants, it’s all part of their culture in Bali (pre-Hindu-anamism). If you told a patient “please drink this water it has magic healing properties” they would. It is easily accepted that there are other forms of healing /medicine besides allopathics. The Balinese Islanders are extremely kind, giving and truly interested in what you are up to. I have never met an entire culture that acts this way, which is another reason I am happy to serve.

AS: Along with homeopathy, what other healing methods did you work with?

GT: I used reflexology sometimes to access meridian points that were out of balance, like in a patient with severe fear and kidney imbalance (the two are related in Chinese medicine). By acupressure via reflexology you can find the imbalance quickly with no need for language. Bach flower essences like Rescue Remedy came in very handy for shock, trauma and anxiety. Charcoal pills made from coconut burnt wood were useful for food poisoning and loose bowels. I also used essential oils. There were traditional Indonesian mixtures. They included Tea Tree oil, Lavender and Eucalyptus. Tea tree for fungal infections, to rid infestation of tics and bugs. Lavender was good for calming and great for sunburns. JAMU, traditional Indonesian medicinal plants were used often. My favorite was Kumis kucing (orthosiphon stamineus). I have used this plant since I was a toddler for urinary/kidney imbalances. Some others were Bertowal, to cleanse the blood, very bitter! Sambiloto also to cleanse the blood. Ginger had a place for stomach upsets. Papaya was helpful for digestion. We used Turmeric for its antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anti-hemorrhagic properties. Aloe Vera came in handy for burns. It works instantly and the plant grows everywhere. Each village also had a Holyman who did spiritual healing. There’s an excellent book called “OBAT ASLI”, the healing herbs of Bali by Ibu Robin Lim, owner of the Bumi Sehat clinic in Ubud Bali. For more on these traditional medicines:, (crisis care)

AS: Could you describe a typical day in a clinic?

GT: There was a very remote clinic used only by the local people of this village. The director was a dedicated woman from Australia who moved to Bali 10 years ago, opened a clinic for the poor and never left. They call her Mama Gloria. Oct 10- 2005 : Kept a journal, Did very little formal case taking as communication was lacking/ impossible. Acute key symptoms had to jump at me. I could not spend hours on each case, only minutes. A typical day included a pregnant woman in for check up. I gave vitamins and cell salts as an overall tonic since most expectant mothers are very weak and are lacking nutrients. Various injuries which received Arnica. A teenage girl, highly emotional with a runny nose cold, green discharge got Puls. A woman traumatized by domestic problems gets Ignatia. Bach flower Rescue Remedy goes to a woman with stress insomnia. A 3rd degree burn on a little boy requires Cantharis, Urtica. Patient with loose rattling cough gets Antimonium tartaricum. A severe eye injury receives Euphrasia. Late in the evening sometimes midnight to 2 am patients would come to the main house asking for help with illnesses, injuries. At the end of the day I would make the one hour walk through a dirt path in the jungle.back to a guesthouse. On the way I met the local rice farmers (no tourists come here so I always caused heads to turn). They would ask in broken English “What are you doing here?” “Where are you staying?” I’d say I was staying with Mama Gloria and volunteering in the clinic (in my broken bahasa Indonesian). There would be an immediate acceptance, big smile like you have known them forever. These beautifull people have nothing material yet have the most plentiful hearts.

AS: Did your work in Bali have any lasting effect?

GT: Yes, I truly believe my visits had a lasting effect. Some of the clinics have continued to use homeopathics. I get email from several clinic directors, sometimes they ask me to send more remedies: Dear Gina, We think of you every day at Bumi Sehat, as we use the homeopathic remedies dozens of times every single day to treat patients. The remedy I am nearly out of, and is so useful to us, due to the fact we have so many children here… is Belladonna. There has been an epidemic of dengue fever, so the Belladonna 200 has been needed. If you know anyone who is coming to Bali anytime, please see if we can get some Belladonna. There have been so many births that we had to add a room to the Bumi Clinic. Much love Peace, Ibu Robin (Bumi Sehat Bali). Doctor Gina, You are our Angel… We are using your remedies everyday. I am about to buy a bog ‘Drybox’ like a refrigerator that keeps the homeopathics dry so that they will last forever. We just had a difficult birth last night… Last birth of 8 in a row… Malpresented baby… Asynclitic and oblique… Would have been a cesarean… but for Pulsatilla 200. We then gave her Caullophylum to strengthen the contractions and she delivered a huge baby boy… So alert and wonderful. We also had a preemie. Wet lungs and chest retractions… Gave Ant. tart and they dried right up. So you see how everyday you help the people of your country, love Ibu robin Thank you (Bumi Sehat Bali) I was invited back to teach the allopathic staff in Government Hospitals next time I return. Other homeopaths have come after me, following in my footsteps to volunteer in these clinics. I opened the door.

AS: How do you relax when you’re not practicing homeopathy?

GT: In addition to practicing homeopathy, I am an artist.

Lets look at the science of homeopathy

photo by ginatylerLet’s look at the science of HOMEOPATHY……..
We ( )also told you about a recent report published in the International Journal of Clinical Practice. That report claimed to do a systematic review of all adverse event reports (AERs) in connection with homeopathy from 1978 to 2010. On the one hand, the report concluded that homeopathy is ineffective because it has no active ingredients, that it is nothing more than a placebo because it has been diluted so much that “the likelihood of a single molecule approaches zero.” On the other hand, the report also concluded that homeopathic preparations caused many dangerous allergic reactions.

We ( pointed out that you can’t have it both ways—either homeopathic preparations are powerful enough to cause a physiological reaction, or they can’t do anything at all. This is all too typical of what passes for scientific review of homeopathy. Dismiss it any way you can, regardless of fact or logic. If that doesn’t work, then argue that homeopathy is dangerous because it may keep people from visiting a conventional doctor.

We ( )promised to return to the subject of what real evidence there is behind homeopathy. That is a large subject, but here are some scientific studies from the past ten years showing that homeopathy can indeed be effective—far more effective than placebo. These studies, which range from random controlled trials (RCTs, the supposed “gold standard”) to observational studies to meta-analyses, often look at homeopathy as an adjunct to conventional medicine. Here is just a sampling:

•Acute otitis media (when the middle ear gets blocked with fluid and infected with bacteria): a 2012 RCT showed that symptomatic improvement was quicker in the homeopathy group than conventional therapy group, with a much lower antibiotic requirement
•Allergies: a 2012 observational study revealed that homeopathy substantially improved allergy symptoms and conventional medicine dosage could be substantially reduced; a 2013 study listed the effectiveness of different homeopathic treatments for allergies based on the type of allergy
•Asthma: In a study of individualized homeopathic treatment for asthma, there was evidence that it decreased the severity of asthma in children

Other studies show effectiveness of homeopathy for conditions ranging from chicken pox, diarrhea, and in a multi-center observational study, chronic sinusitis. Homeopathy could be an effective treatment for low-grade chronic inflammation, which is the root of many diseases, and as a complement to conventional anti-tubercular treatment (a finding that is especially important as patients are becoming resistant to TB drugs).

Much more research is ongoing despite the abysmal lack of funding for it. At the very least there is promising evidence supporting homeopathy.

So if it works, how does it work?

A homeopathic remedy is an extremely pure, natural substance that has been diluted many times. In large quantities these substances would cause the same symptoms the patient is trying to cure. In tiny, diluted doses, it is not only safe and free from side effects, but it will trigger the body to heal itself. For example, when you chop a red onion, it causes watery eyes and a runny nose in most people. Allium cepa is a remedy created from red onion; in very small doses, Allium cepa doesn’t create those symptoms but instead activates the body’s own mechanism for stopping watery eyes and a runny nose.

As noted in “Immunology and Homeopathy,” an article published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, “The profound analogies between homeopathic thought and immunology are due to the fact that the whole of homeopathic theory is substantially based on the principle of regulating endogenous systems of healing, the best known of which is certainly the immune system and its neuroendocrine integrations.”

Around the end of the 19th century, scientists observed that different doses of the same substance can create wildly varying effects in humans. They observed that weak stimuli slightly increase biological responses, medium stimuli markedly raise them, strong ones suppress them, and very strong ones arrest them. This principal, called hormesis, is seen, for example, in medicinal plants: belladonna, in very small doses, has long been used as a pain reliever, muscle relaxer, and anti-inflammatory; in large doses it is extremely toxic. Foxglove (digitalis) helps cardiac arrhythmias in minute dosages, but in large doses can cause heart block and either bradycardia (decreased heart rate) or tachycardia (increased heart rate), depending on the dose and the condition of one’s heart.

The big difference between these practices and homeopathy is the amount of dilution used—and it is here that conventional medicine has such difficulty with it. In homeopathy, the substance (an herb, mineral, or animal product) is crushed and dissolved in a liquid (usually an alcohol and water solution), violently shaken with impact at least 100 times (“succussion,” usually done mechanically), then stored. This is the “mother tincture.” Homeopaths then dilute tinctures further. One part of the tincture to ten parts of the liquid is a 1X dilution (X being the Roman numeral for ten), with another round of succussion. A 2X potency takes one part of the 1X potency and adds it to nine parts of the diluting solution, thus creating a one-to-100 dilution; common potencies used in homeopathic remedies usually begin around 6X, or one part of the original mother tincture to one million parts of the diluting material. By the time you get to a 30X dilution, there is no measurable part of the original substance left.

The precise mechanism of how homeopathy works—why greater and greater dilutions should have more and more power, and why the violent shaking with impact should be so important—is still unknown. This is not really surprising given the lack of funding available to study the question, although some prominent scientists such as Luc Montagnier, the first discoverer of the AIDS virus, is pursuing it.

Despite the lack of formal research funding, homeopathy has always been an observational science, testing and refining a practice until it works better and better. The authors of “Immunology and Homeopathy” (cited above) put it this way: “The two approaches to system regulation—scientific/reductionistic and homeopathic/holistic—are not conflicting, but use different approaches: mainstream pharmacology applies a ‘structural’ analog, which is identified as the molecule binding to specific receptors or enzymes of the target system (if known). Classic homeopathy applies a ‘functional’ analogue, which is identified as the diluted compound that is able to regulate and/or to trigger homeodynamic systems. This kind of functional analogy, based on the similarity of symptoms, can be exploited even if the details of the receptors or the effector enzymes are unknown within the complex homeodynamic networks.”

Conventional medicine is, by and large, solely focused on biochemistry. but living cells and tissues also generate bioelectromagnetic fields, and it is at this level that homeopathy may be working. Every electron in every cell vibrates; so if everything vibrates, it would seem fairly logical that one vibration must affect another. One current hypothesis is that the succussion of the dilution strengthens the vibratory resonance of the substance, even when the physical component of the substance has been removed.

Other hypotheses discuss homeopathy in terms of nanotechnology—or nanopharmacology. The micro-bubbles and the nano-bubbles caused by the succussion may produce microenvironments of higher temperature and pressure. Several studies by chemists and physicists have revealed an increased release of heat from water in which homeopathic medicines are prepared, even when the repeated process of dilutions should suggest that there are no molecules remaining of the original medicinal substance.

In other words, no one knows precisely how homeopathy works. That is the rub. But there is a vast amount of anecdotal evidence that it does, including the experiences of ANH staff, such as an instant cure of trigeminal neuralgia, one of the most painful and difficult conditions to heal, instant cures of infant earaches, teenage allergies, and much more. Scientific studies, undertaken with very little funding because these are not patentable drugs, are now starting to show that it does work—and that it is far safer than FDA-approved drugs.

In the meantime, vicious attacks on homeopathy—in the US and UK and elsewhere—continue, both because it is an affront to conventional medical thought and an economic threat to the patent drug business.

RBN 10.2 By Walt Woods


WHY: Robin was having the same problems that many beginning dowsers have, trouble with accuracy and repeatability. She wisely wrote to the American Society of Dowsers asking for help. The Society sent her the names of ten Dowsers and I was privileged to be one of them. Robin sent a letter to each one and received informative letters from all of us. I had recognized the need for a booklet of this type for some time, but it was this letter that inspired me to start developing it. In an effort to make the booklet as clear as possible and with the suggestions from many dowsers, it is now in its tenth revision.

SOURCE OF INFORMATION: Over a period of ten years, starting in 1980, 1 had developed a “Multipurpose Dowsing Form” and its accompanying booklet. This dowsing system started as one page and eventually grew through twenty-six revisions to eight pages. The revisions were given away at many dowsing meetings. As a result, I received information and suggestions from many dowsers. This stimulated new revisions. Eventually, the Multipurpose Dowsing System became so in-depth that beginning dowsers had trouble understanding it. It was then that I realized the need for a simple, easy to understand, how to learn to dowse booklet. This booklet needed to include instructions for using the pendulum, programming or establishing parameters and conditions for your dowsing, and how to ask the dowsing questions. Even though dowsers successfully use many different devices and many different methods, there appeared to be an underlying basic system at work. This letter to Robin is based on my perception of the principles, knowledge and understanding of many dowsers. Please note that skilled dowsers usually specialize and may add many refinements to their basic systems.

FOR WHOM: This Mini-Course in Pendulum Dowsing was designed as a learning tool for beginners. It could be used for a class or for discussion by experienced dowsers for it contains bits of information that even the most skilled dowsers may appreciate.

HOW TO USE: You can easily familiarize yourself with the whole booklet in twenty to thirty minutes and this is a good way to start. The beginner should return to page 2 and take one step at a time. Each step is explained in simple, easy to understand terms. You will be surprised how quickly you can learn to dowse.

Autism-homeopathy-CEASE therapy a mothers story

gina photography 012 (2)written by Nicolette on her blog momnivores-dilemma dot com
Autism is big business. Whether it’s the $160/hr for therapy, the countless vitamins, minerals, enzymes, or the out-of-pocket lab tests and doc visits, we’ve done it all in the past three years for Moose. I have the credit card bill to prove it.

Despite all the inteventions, energy, and time, something still nagged at me.

I knew Moose’s healing required something deeper. I found myself lagging on supplements and lab tests late this past spring. Something seemed off. Like we were close to an answer, but I couldn’t quite make it out.

Homeopathy was mentioned to me in whispers, but it always seemed in the periphery. Something that I’d think about later.

After reading two books, The Impossible Cure and CEASE Therapy, the direction we would take next became clear.

I didn’t feel ready to discuss homeopathy on this blog, until I tried it myself for my own health issues, and had Moose on the protocol for a few months.

My God, the changes since we began homeopathy in June, have been nothing sort of a miracle.

For me {I’ll write about that soon}, and for Moose.

For years, we struggled with diarrhea, since his 2nd birthday. We’ve visited every specialist and doctor imaginable. Within weeks of starting homeopathy, said diarrhea is GONE.

Comorbid with the bowel issues, Moose had major trouble falling asleep at night: running, jumping, and yelping for up to two hours after lights went out. After our current clearing hit the second week {which is homeopathic terminology for treatment}, the errratic nighttime behaviors have left the estate, people.

The kid is in his bed, usually asleep within 15 minutes.

That alone, is a testament, to homeopathy.

Again, this is NOT a coincidence.

Coupled with this, is the ability to follow directions again, just like when he was before he developed autism. When I tell him to get his shoes, place his dish in the sink, come in and eat…he listens.

Again, this is NOT a coincidence.

Homeopathy is not widely known in the U.S., but has been used for over 200 years throughout Europe. Rather than suppressing symptoms like pharmaceuticals, it heals the body gently while addressing the underlying cause.

Imagine, if you will, doctors finding the cause of what ails you, rather than piling on the band-aids.

For the past three years, I’ve had this mantra in my head, “The Cure is in The Cause”.

Now, to address the many causes…

Homeopathy has taught me that it wasn’t one shot that led Moose to autism: it’s a multifaceted assault that began long before his birth: with my health: all of my migraine medications, my pharmaceutical history. What happened at his birth, with a heavily medicated C-section delivery. Then the chronic ear infections. The excessive vaccines. Living in polluted Chicago. The inflammatory American diet. The incessant antibiotics. The copious amounts of Baby Motrin and Tylenol. Even, the emotional impact of my father’s death when he was a newborn contributed to his autism. Emotional, physical, environmental, pharmaceutical, and mental stressors all matter.

This is precisely why, “a cure” for autism can’t be found. There are too many causes. All autisms are different, because all of our medical and family histories are different. Treatment needs to be tailored to the individual.

By age 2, the cup runneth over, so to speak, and Moose lost skills, language, and the ability to point and wave.

Now, at age 5, the Moose is on his way back. He’s made more progress on four months of homeopathy than he did on three years of pricey supplements and the DAN! {Defeat Autism Now}route.

Our homeopath, Lora Roberts, is one of the few homeopaths in the U.S. who is trained in a special homeopathy for autism known as CEASE therapy. She has been the most intuituve practioner I’ve encountered on our autism journey. We’re blessed to have her on Team Moose.(more CEASE practicioners at

Many families have seen progress and recovery with the DAN! route.

Our story is different.

And I know, in the deepest parts of my being, that finally, there will be a happy ending.

Castor oil topical application

Studies Support Castor Oil’s Efficacy as an Antimicrobial, Anti-Inflammatory, and Immunostimulant
Thanks to for this data

While castor oil has been thoroughly investigated for its industrial use, only a minimal amount of research has been directed toward its medicinal benefits. That said, the healing properties of castor oil appear to have survived countless generations of scrutiny.

I believe it has enough history behind it to at least warrant greater scientific exploration, and perhaps a little careful at-home experimentation on your own. Oftentimes, modern day scientific studies end up validating thousands of years of “folklore.” Castor oil studies are hard to track down, but I did find a few notable ones, which I have summarized in the table below.

1.Castor oil has been found to have a strong suppressive effect on some tumors.

2.An Indian study in 2011 found that castor leaf extract showed better antibacterial activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria than Gentamycin (their standard for comparison).xii

3.A 2010 study found that castor oil packs were an effective means of decreasing constipation in the elderly.xii

4.This 2009 study found that castor oil effectively relieves arthritis symptoms.xiii

5.A 1999 studyxiv was carried out to determine whether or not topical castor oil would stimulate the lymphatic system. The findings were positive. After a two-hour treatment with castor oil packs, there was a significant increase in the number of T-11 cells, which increased over a seven-hour period following treatment.

6.In this 2000 studyxv of the effects of ricinoleic acid on inflammation, researchers found it exerted “capsaicin-like” antiinflammatory properties.

7.Patients with occupational dermatitis may have a positive reaction to castor oil or ricinoleic acid.xvi

Castor Oil May Promote Healing by Boosting Your Lymphatic System

One of the more compelling health benefits, if true, is castor oil’s support of your immune system. And this healing property does not require you ingest the oil, but only apply it externally.

The benefits of castor oil packs were popularized by the late psychic healer Edgar Cayce, and then later researched by primary care physician William McGarey of Phoenix, Arizona, a follower of Cayce’s work and the author of The Oil That Heals. McGarey reported that, when used properly, castor oil packs improve the function of your thymus gland and other components of your immune system. More specifically, he found in two separate studies that patients using abdominal castor oil packs had significant increases in lymphocyte production compared to placebo packs.

Lymphocytes are your immune system’s disease-fighting cells and are produced and stored mainly in your lymphatic tissuexvii (thymus gland, spleen, and lymph nodes). Hundreds of miles of lymphatic tubules allow waste to be collected from your tissues and transported to your blood for elimination, a process referred to as lymphatic drainage. When your lymphatic system is not working properly, waste and toxins can build up and make you sick.

Lymphatic congestion is a major factor leading to inflammation and disease.

This is where castor oil comes in. When castor oil is absorbed through your skin (according to Cayce and McGarey), your lymphocyte count increases. Increased lymphocytes speed up the removal of toxins from your tissues, which promotes healing.

Castor Oil Packs a Punch, Topically

Castor oil “packs” can be an economical and efficient method of infusing the ricinoleic acid and other healing components of castor oil directly into your tissues. You would be wise to do a “patch test” prior to applying a castor oil pack to make sure you aren’t allergic to the oil.

There are several ways to use castor oil topically. You can simply rub castor oil onto an affected area of your skin. Or, you can affix a Band-Aide soaked in castor oil if only a very small area needs to be treated. For larger or more systemic applications, it can be used as massage oil, which is reported especially effective when applied along your spinal column, massaged along your lymphatic drainage pathways. But the coup de grace of castor oil therapy is the “castor oil pack.”

To make a castor oil pack, you will need the following supplies:
1.High quality cold-pressed castor oil (see last section of this article)
2.A hot water bottle or heating pad
3.Plastic wrap, sheet of plastic, or plastic garbage bag
4.Two or three one-foot square pieces of wool or cotton flannel, or one piece large enough to cover the entire treatment area when folded in thirds
5.One large old bath towel

Below are instructions for making and using a castor oil pack (courtesy of Daniel H. Chong, ND):
•Fold flannel three layers thick so it is still large enough to fit over your entire upper abdomen and liver, or stack the three squares.
•Soak flannel with the oil so that it is completely saturated. The oil should be at room temperature.
•Lie on your back with your feet elevated (using a pillow under your knees and feet works well), placing flannel pack directly onto your abdomen; cover oiled flannel with the sheet of plastic, and place the hot water bottle on top of the plastic.
•Cover everything with the old towel to insulate the heat. Take caution not to get the oil on whatever you are laying on, as it can stain. If necessary, cover that surface with something to protect it.
•Leave pack on for 45 to 60 minutes.
•When finished, remove the oil from your skin by washing with a solution of two tablespoons of baking soda to one quart water, or just soap and water. (Be sure to wash the towel by itself, as the castor oil can make other clothes stink if washed together.)
•You can reuse the pack several times, each time adding more oil as needed to keep the pack saturated. Store the pack in a large zip-lock bag or other plastic container in a convenient location, such as next to your bed. Replace the pack after it begins to change color.
•For maximum effectiveness, apply at least four consecutive days per week for one month. Patients who use the pack daily report the most benefits.

Be Cautious when Purchasing Castor Oil

As with everything else, you must be careful about your source of castor oil. Much of the oil currently sold in stores is derived from castor seeds that have been heavily sprayed with pesticides, solvent-extracted (hexane is commonly used), deodorized, or otherwise chemically processed, which damages beneficial phytonutrients and may even contaminate the oil with toxic agents.

historical manipulation of disease and vaccine data

photo by gina tylerHistorical Manipulation thanks to

The claim that vaccination has wiped out deadly scourges has reached legendary status. But are these claims backed by historical records or do they represent the most deceptive and successful public relations coup in the history of the medical industrial complex? And if vaccines-and not better sanitation etc. – saved humanity from disease, then where are today’s epidemic of Scarlet Fever victims for which no vaccine was ever administered? *** It is also imperative to understand that the definition + diagnosis of polio was dramatically changed when the polio vaccine was introduced, further manipulating statistics. For an overview of this critically pertinent information see:

“The ‘victory over epidemics’ was not won by medical science or by doctors – and certainly not by vaccines… The decline has been the result of technical, social and hygienic improvement.”
Gerhard Buchwald MD, Internal Medicine Specialist,Germany

“This history that has been cooked up to convince people that vaccines are safe and effective…The decline of disease was due to improve living conditions: cleaner water, advance sewage systems, nutrition a decrease in poverty. Germs may be everywhere but when you are really healthy, you don’t contact disease as easily.”
Mark Randall, (pseudonym) former NIH Researcher and Vaccine Developer in interview with investigative reporter, Jon Rappoport

“I went to the Office for National Statistics and got out all the old books when public records began to be kept in 1837 and wrote down the mortality figures for the diseases against which we vaccinate. I was shocked to discover that vaccines hadn’t made the great impact that I had been led to believe with graphs starting a few years before the vaccines were introduced. INSTEAD of showing the figures from fifty or a hundred years before when you would see that 95-99% of the reduction from measles, for example, already before vaccines were introduced.”

Jayne Donegan, MBBS DRGOG, DCH, DFFP

“The charts plotted by the epidemiologist McKeown should humble scientists and lead them to look into the question of health from a holistic point of view. He showed how improvement of environmental conditions by reformers in Britian during the sanitary revolution of the nineteenth century led to effective controls of several major diseases like TB, colera and whooping cough in the absence of conventional biomedical tools.”
Norshir Antia MD, Surgeon, India, ‘A Life of Change, The Autobiography of a Doctor’

From 1900-1935 before the pertussis vaccine was introduced the death rate from pertussis in the United States and England had already declined on its own by 79% and 82% respectively.
International Mortality Statistics

Figures published in International Mortality Statistics confirm that from 1915-1958 the measles death rate in the U.S. and U.K. declined by 98% (five years before the creation of the measles vaccine)

“We were told repeatedly that Professor Ramous toxoid ‘practically wiped out diptheria’ in Britain, yet compulsory use at the same time in France showed very different results. In Britain with mass inoculations there was an increase in cases and deaths of several months, but in France with compulsory inoculations, the increases were much greater and lasted for many years.”
Lionel Dole, ‘The Blood Poisoners’

The New Zealand Government’s statistics show that the average death rate per 10,000 fell from 6.08 to 0.20 before the use of diphtheria vaccine.
Southland Time 30-Sep-1998

The most phenomenal accomplishments in tuberculosis eradication have been achieved where little or no B.C.G. (vaccine) has been used, including in Iceland Hawaii and the Netherlands.

Smallpox Vaccine: Responsibe for Eradication or Epidemics?

“It is pathetic and ludicrous to say we ever vanquished smallpox with vaccines, when only 10% of the population was ever vaccinated.”
Dr. Glen Dettman PhD, Australia

“There is no question but that perfect sanitation has almost obliterated this disease (smallpox) and sooner or later will dispose of it entirely. Of course when that time comes, in all probability the credit will be given to vaccination.”

John Tilden MD (1851-1940)

“I have thought many times of all the insane things that we have advocated in medicine – one of the most insane – to insist on the vaccination of children or anybody else for the prevention of smallpox, when as a matter of fact, we are never able to prove vaccination saved one man from smallpox.”
Dr. William Howard Hay (1866-1940), New York Practitioner

“Smallpox was on the way out, indeed epidemics disappeared decades before the World Health Organization decided to conduct the final “eradication” campaign. It is also well-documented that the largest epidemics occurred in the most highly vaccinated populations, while the unvaccinated did not have the same epidemics.”
Viera Scheibner, PhD, Scientific Researcher and Author

“If vaccines are so effective in preventing disease why have epidemics occurred around the world following mass vaccination programs? In the Philippines for example, “after ten years of compulsory inoculation against smallpox (25 million shots) over 170,000 got smallpox and 75,000 deaths were recorded between 1911 and 1920″”
from the Townsend Letter for Doctors article “Are Vaccines Generally Detrimental to the Human Defence System” Feb/Mar 1994

“Early in this century, the Philippines experienced their worst smallpox ever after people received 24.5 million vaccine doses.”

Dr. William Howard Hay, Address to Medicial Freedom Society, 6/25/37

“From the time in which smallpox was practically eradicated in the city of Manila, to the year 1918 (about nine years) in which the epidemic appears – certainly in one of its severest forms – hundreds after hundreds of thousands were yearly vaccinated, with the most unfortunate result that the 1918 epidemic looks, prima facie, as a flagrant failure of the classic immunization towards future Epidemics.”
Report of the Public Health Service 1920 (discussing smallpox in Manila)

“Since the passing of the Compulsory Vaccination Act in (Britain) 1853 we have had no less than three distinct epidemics. In 1857-9. We had more than 14,000 deaths from small pox. In the 1863-5 epidemic the deaths increased to 20,000 and in the 1871-2 they totaled up to 44,800.”
Walter Hadwen MD, MRCS LRCP, LSA

“In the Cologne epidemic of 1870, 173 vaccinated persons were attacked before the first unvaccinated one. In Liegnite in 1871, the first unvaccinated to suffer was 225th on the list.”
William T. Collins MD, MRCS 1883

“How is it that smallpox is five times as likely to be fatal in the vaccinated as in the unvaccinated? How is it that in some of our most highly vaccinated towns, smallpox is rife whilst in some of our most poorly vaccinated towns such as Leicester, it is almost unknown? How is it that something like 80% of the cases admitted into the Metropolitan Board Smallpox Hospital have been vaccinated, whilst only 20% have not been vaccinated.”
Dr. L. Parry, British Medical Journal, 1/21/28

“Millions of people died of smallpox which they contracted after being vaccinated.”
J. W. Hodge, ‘The Vaccine Superstition’

“At present, intelligent people do not have their children vaccinated. The result is not, as the Jennerians prophesied the extermination of the human race by smallpox, on the contrary more people are now killed by vaccinations than by smallpox.”
George Bernard Shaw, The Irish Times, 8/9/44

Smallpox Vaccine and VIDS

“I am convinced that 80% of these cancer deaths are caused by the smallpox vaccinations.”
Dr. Herbert Snow, Surgeon, London Cancer Hospital

“I have studied the question of vaccination conscientiously for 45 years…As a preventative of disease, there is not a scrap of evidence in its favour. The injection of virus into the bloodstream does not prevent smallpox, rather, it tends to increase its epidemics, and it makes the disease more deadly.”…Cancer mortality has increased from 9 per 100,000 or fully 900% increase within the past 50 years, and no conceivable thing could have caused this increase but the universal blood poisoning now existing.”
Dr. Charles E. Page, Boston Practitioner

“In looking over the history of vaccination for smallpox, I am amazed to learn of the terrible deaths from vaccination which necessitated amputation of arms and legs and caused tetanus…and cerebro-spinal meningitis.”
Dr. R.C. Carter, Practitioner, ‘Vaccines: Are They Really Safe & Effective’, Neil Miller

back to top

Startling Admissions from the “Authorities”

“There can be no doubt that vaccination was a definite causal factor and no chance coincidence” Data confirming encephalomyelitis following smallpox vaccination.”
Lancet, September & October 1926

“It is now accepted that the risks of routine smallpox vaccination outweigh those of natural infection.”
British Medical Journal 1/5/76

“Immunization against smallpox is more hazardous than the disease itself.”
Ari Zuckerman, Advisory Panel, World Health Organization

“Primary smallpox immunization of persons with subclinical HIV disease poses a risk of vaccine-induced disease and multiple immunizations may accelerate the progress of HIV disease. This case raises concern about the ultimate safety of vaccinia-based vaccine in developing countries…”
New England Journal of Medicine, March 12, 1987

Vaccine Induced Paralysis

“In regions in which there is no organized vaccination of the population, general paralysis is rare…”
JAMA, July 1926

“Around the turn of the 20th century, people began reporting paralytic illness AFTER the smallpox vaccination. By the 1920s, infantile paralysis (later renamed polio) began to emerge as an important new disease that often afflicted the limb that had been vaccinated. And later when…vaccines gained widespread use, illness and paralytic episodes following vaccination became common knowledge…”
Edda West, Polio Perspectives, Vaccine Risk Awareness Network

“One soldier… told me that the army hospitals were filled with cases of infantile paralysis and he wondered why a grown man should have an infant disease. Now, we know that paralysis is a common after-effect of vaccine Poisoning. those at home didn’t get the paralysis until after the world-wide vaccination campaign in 1918.”
Eleanor McBean PhD, author of ‘The Poisoned Needle’

A study published in 1992 validated earlier findings. Children who received DPT injections were significantly more likely than controls to get paralytic poliomyelitis within the next 30 days…”This study confirmed that injections are an important cause of provocative poliomyelitis.”

The Polio Vaccine: A Public Relations Coup

“There was too much Hollywood, too much exaggeration and the impression given was that polio had been conquered.”
Dr. Albert Sabin, Developer of the Oral Polio vaccine

“A spokesman for Park Davis which made 50% of the Salk vaccine said ‘now that it’s been declared safe’ we can get back the millions invested I the Salk vaccine and make a profit out of it. Our company will make over $10,000,000 on the Salk vaccine.”

Polio Stats: Vaccine Miracle of Medical Manipulation?

From 1923 to 1953 before the Salk killed virus vaccine was introduced, the polio death rate in the United States and England had already declined on its own by 47% and 55% respectively.
International Mortality Statistics

“Official data shows that large scale vaccination has failed to obtain any significant improvement of the diseases against which they were supposed to provide protection.”
Dr. Albert Sabin, Developer of the Oral Polio vaccine

“Prior to 1954 any physician who reported paralytic poliomyelitis was doing his patient a service by way of subsidizing the cost of hospitalization… two examinations at least twenty-four hours apart was all that was required… In 1955 the criteria were changed …residual paralysis was determined ten to twenty days after onset of illness and again fifty to seventy days after onset…This change In definition meant that in 1955, we started reporting a new disease… Furthermore, diagnostic procedures have continued to be Re-defined. Cocksackie virus infections and aseptic meningitis have been distinguished from poliomyelitis…Thus simply in the Change of diagnosis criteria, the number of paralytic cases was pre-deterrmined to decrease.”
Dr. Bernard Greenberg, Chairman of the Committee on Evaluation & Standards of The American Policy Health Association during 1950s testifying before Congressional Hearings, 1962

“After vaccination was introduced, cases of aseptic meningitis were reported as a separate disease from polio, but such were counted as polio before the vaccine was introduced. The Ministry of Health admitted that the vaccine status of the individual is a guiding factor in diagnosis…If a person who is vaccinated contracts the disease, the disease is simply recorded under a different name…Those who contracted polio after the first inoculation were placed on the non-inoculated list…It’s obvious that this practice of screening statistics, apparently in order to suppress facts unfavourable to immunization, invalidates most of the evidence brought forward by the supporters of immunization.”

Maurice Meadow Bayly MRCS, LRCP, ‘The Case Against Vaccination’

“Go to your library and ask to see the United States Poliio Surveillance Unit’s bulletins from 1955 to 1970. They will be ‘missing’. Every single medical library in the U.S. that were checked out for me and in New Zealand (and possibly other countries) has them listed as “missing.” There is only one place you can see them, as far as I know and that’s at the MMA’s library , and they are listed as having top security clearance requirement to see..Why might this be? When he was alive Dr. Ratner had copies of them at this home. He gave me many of the years’ data I wanted. They clearly showed from the inception of the Salk vaccine, to its discontinuation, the vaccine had a MINUS efficacy and was actually causing more polio in the vaccinated than the unvaccinated… Any studious person looking at government stats in retrospect, would be able to easily see that the political and media canonization of Salk and his vaccine was a mirage of duplicity upon duplicity.”

The Polio Vaccine- The Unreported Disasters

“The U.S.P.H.S. reported that more children who received the Salk vaccine made by Wyeth Labs suffered polio than could normally be expected.”
Washington Bureau of the Detroit Free Press, 6/13/55

“In 1957, a spokesman for the North Carolina Health Department made glowing claims for the efficacy of the Salk vaccine, showing how polio steadily decrease from 1953 to 1957. Hi figures were challenged by Dr. Fred Klenner who pointed out that it wasn’t until 1955 that a single person in the state received a polio vaccine injection. Even then injections were administered on a limited basis because of the number of polio cases resulting from the vaccine. It wasn’t until 1956 that a single person in the state received a polio vaccine Even then injections were administered on a limited basis because of the number of polio cases resulting from the vaccine. It wasn’t until 1956 that polio vaccinations assumed inspired proportion. The 61% drop in polio cases in 1954 was credited to the Salk vaccine when it wasn’t even in the state. By 1957 polio was on the increase.”
Dr. Walene James, ‘Immunization: The Reality Behind the Myth’

“Doctors and scientists on the staff of the National Institutes of Health during the 1950s were all aware that the Salk vaccine was causing polio. Some frankly stated that it was ‘worthless as a preventative and dangerous to take.’ They refused to vaccinate their own children. Health departments banned the inoculation. The Idaho State Health Director angrily declared ‘I hold Salk vaccine and its manufacturers responsible ‘for a polio outbreak that several killed Idahoans and hospitalized dozens more…”
‘Vaccines: Are They really Safe and Effective’, N. Miller citing ‘The Poisoned needle’ and data taken from government statistics as reported

“Where compulsory vaccination was practiced as in North Carolina and Tenesse, Bealle’s investigations report a 400% increase in paralytic and non-paralytic polio during 1959 over 1958.”

William Frederick Koch MD, PhD

“I got a phone call… This was the health officer of the city of Los Angeles and he said they just got two reports of polio in sime children who had been vaccinated days earlier.”

James Shannon, then Associate Director, National Institute of Health

“English authorities have cancelled the Salk vaccine program as too dangerous.”
Herbert Ratner MD Editor, Bulletin of Public Health Officials

“The Salk vaccine failed completely and the Sabin vaccine was a disaster. It caused many cases of polio and showed no relationship to the disease except for an increase in polio during the early 60′s caused by the vaccine itself.”
William Douglass MD, (The Douglass Report)

“When you inoculate children with a polio vaccine you don’t sleep well for two or three weeks.”
Dr. Jonas Salk, Developer of the Killed Virus Polio Vaccine

“In 1976, Dr. Jonas Salk, the developer of the killed-virus vaccine testified that the live virus vaccine was “the principal if not the sole” cause of polio in the U.S. since 1961″
Washington Post 9/ 24/76

“According to the CDC, 133 people contracted polio between 1980 and 1994. A total of 125 of those cases or an average of eight per year were caused directly by the oral polio vaccine, which consists of a live but weakened virus, the CDC said.”
Associated Press, 1/ 20/97

“When WHO officials discovered a polio outbreak in Nigeria was sparked by the polio vaccine itself they assumed it would be easier to stop than the natural “wild” virus. They were wrong…The virus in the vaccine can mutate into a deadlier version that ignites new outbreaks.”

The DDT Factor… Why No Publicity?

“We have heard of localities where the polio incidence rose after DDT spraying.”
Rodale Encyclopedia of Common Diseases, 1962

“Some medical people began to link paralytic polio-like illnesses as a response to the increasing use of serious neuro-toxins like DDT, lead and arsenic compounds.”
Edda West, Polio Perspectives, Vaccine Risk Awareness Network

“It is quite clear that the authorities are keeping certain information secret. They do their best to hide their contributing role concerning the production and misuse of DDT behind a polio-virus and a supposed miracle-vaccine.”
Gerhard Buchwald MD, citing ‘Polio: An Illness caused by pesticides?’ by Vlado Petek-Dimner

“In 1983, via new legislation, DDT was allowed back into the U.S. marketplaces but only in pesticide blends. Within only a few months of this re-entry, a new kind of polio epidemic re-emerged labeled “post-polio”…this correlation is not even a whisper in the mainstream media…Central nervous system diseases continue: acute flaccid paralysis, chronic fatigue syndrome, encephalitis, meningitis, muscular sclerosis.”

The SV 40 Cover-Up

“Many here voice silent view that Salk and Sabin polio vaccines made from monkey and kidney tissues has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukemia.”

Frederick Klenner MD, FCCP

“In 1954 Dr. Bernice Eddy (bacteriologist) discovered live monkey viruses in supposedly sterile inactivated polio vaccine developed by Jonas Salk. This discovery was not well received by the National Institute of Health and Dr. Eddy was demoted. Later, Dr. Maurice Hilleman ( then chief vaccine developer, Merck) isolated SV 40 virus from both the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines… It has now been identified in 43% of cases of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, 36% of brain tumours…”
Dr. James Howenstine, MD, ‘Why You Should Avoid Taking Vaccines’

“Bernice Eddy lost her labs pursuing and espousing the truth. Her treatment scandalized the scientific community and resulted in a U.S. Senate investigation during which she warned legislators that unless the vaccine contamination problems was addressed, slow monkey viruses would simply deliver human cancer epidemics around the world.”
Thomas E. Stone MD Pediatrician – Photo is of Bernice Eddy

“I just think this virus may have some long-term affects…cancer. Three, four weeks after that we found tumours popping out of these hampers.”
Dr. Maurice Hilleman, Chief Vaccine Developer, Merck relating comments made to Dr. Albert Sabin, developer of the live virus polio vaccine, in interview with Edward Shorter, Medical Historian, 2/6/87

“I think to release certain information prematurely is not a public service. There is too much scaring the public unnecessarily. Oh, your children were injected by a cancer virus.”
Albert Sabin, Developer of the Oral Polio Vaccine

“Within a few years of the polio vaccine we started seeing some strange phenomena like the year before the first 300,000 doses were given in the United States childhood leukemia had never struck children under the age of two. One year after the first onslaught they had the first cases of children under the age of two that died of leukemia…Dr. Herbert Radnor observed that in a small area of this little town, in an area where no cases of leukemia had been expected or at the most one in 4 years according to previous statistics, they suddenly had a rash like epidemic within a few blocks.”
Eva Snead MD, San Antonio, Texas

Despite official denials of any correlation between polio vaccines, SV-40 and increased cancer rates, by April 2001, 62 papers from 30 laboratories around the world had reported SV-40 in human tissues and tumours.
San Francisco Chronicle July 15, 2001

“A study of 59,000 women found that children of mothers who received the Salk vaccine between 1959 and 1965 had brain tumours at a rate 13 times greater than mothers who did not receive those polio shots.”
New England Journal of Medicine 1988; 318; 1469

“It cannot be ruled out that two million New Zealanders cold be suffering in thirty years’ time from cancerous brain tumours as a result of vaccination.”
Dr. A. Malcome, Minister of Health, New Zealand, 1983

“Despite the polio vaccine’s long history of animal-virus contamination, today’s inactivated shot is manufactured in much the same way as earlier versions: ‘The viruses are grown in cultures of continuous line monkey kidney cells…supplemented with newborn calf serum…”The vaccine also contains two antibiotics (neomycin and streptomycin) plus formaldehyde. In Canada the inactivated polio vaccine is produced in human fetal tissue…”

The Polio Vaccine: Other Consequences

“Studies have shown that while the oral polio vaccine contains three strains of polio virus, a fourth strain can be cultured from the faeces of vaccine recipients. This indicates that viruses have recombined and formed a new strain in the process of vaccination.”
Virology, 1993

“A sixteen month old boy hospitalized for high fever and paralysis had never received any poliovirus vaccine … From playing and sharing a bed with his cousin, he apparently contracted poliomyelitis from the cousin who received Typ-2 oral poliovirus thirty-three days before. Virological and serological investigation revealed a vaccine-like strain of Type-2 poliovirus.”
‘Poliomyelitis associated with Type-2 polio virus strain. Possible tramsmission from an immunized child to an non-immunized child.” Lancet, vol. 1, 3/30/68

“Modern genetics has confirmed the genetic similarity between polio viruses, coxsackie and another group called the echol viruses. Before the advent of the Salk and Sabin vaccines, there were only three polio-like disease…When the coxsackie viruses first isolated from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients, it wasn’t realized we were simply dealing with a new a new form of polio…”
William Campbell Douglas MD ‘Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: The Hidden Polio Epidemic’ Second Opinion Newsletter…

“And now we have the sensational findings from the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, which strongly indicate that polio did not go away at all, but now manifests itself as chronic fatigue syndrome…When Coxsackie viruses were first isolated from CFS patients, it wasn’t realized that we were simply dealing with a new form of polio. This new polio was caused by the replacement of the polio viruses with their brothers, the Coxsackie viruses. As the researchers didn’t get the connection at first, these new polio cases were labeled “post-polio syndrome”, “chronic fatigue syndrome” and myalgic encephalomyelitis.”

A very good measure of the attitude among homeopaths can be gained by considering their view of isopathy, higher potencies, nosodes and the miasm theory, because these topics have tended to clearly demarcate those of a more spiritual disposition from the materialists, and therefore also reveals the “intraprofessional tensions over what constitutes proper homeopathic practice.” [57] Isopathy, or “the cure of diseases by their own morbid products or the supposed exciting causes, are, far from being a novelty, on the contrary of very ancient date.” [58] Dudgeon [1820-1904] is in no doubt that “the honour of having introduced isopathic heresies into the homeopathic school…[falls upon] our transatlantic friend Dr Constantine Hering,” [59] who, according to Dudgeon, simply raked isopathy “up from the dust and rubbish of antiquity…much encouraged by Gross and systematised by Lux.” [60] Yet, other homeopaths took a far more generous view: “the indispensable curative service of the products of disease…safely administered in sickness.” [61] “for the past five years I have regularly used the bacillus virus as part of my daily practice…with great satisfaction;” [62] “I think very highly of Koch’s remedy…I use it in high potency…” [63] In particular, it was claimed, nosodes could be used to neutralise old internalised illness states [dyscrasias] or remove invisible ‘taints’ that prevent ordinary remedies from working: “the nosode has removed the miasmatic block,” [64]. Then “the remedy will work again after the block is removed with a nosode,” [65]. This much at least is the empirical observation of those who use them in clinical practice: nosodes were not so well proven as “well-known polychrests…but have been so successful;” [66] their use “depends more on clinical experience…[which has] accumulated for many years and has been checked by the experience of so many practitioners that it is considered trustworthy.” [67]

Yet, Dudgeon denounces isopathists outright as “homeopathic heretics distinguished for the eccentricity of their aberrations.” [68] By not exactly mincing his words on such people, which reveals his abhorrence for that type of person, this exposes him as a ‘non-believer’ in miasms, who poured nothing but scorn on the entire theory. Leading British homeopaths, Robert Dudgeon and Richard Hughes [1836-1902], “were ‘pathological prescribers’, their ideas contrasting with those of Frederic Quin,” [69] who mostly used the 30c potency, like Hahnemann. [70] The low-potency pathological approach dominated early British homeopathy, c.1830-1870. As a Hughesian homeopath, a 3x man, Dudgeon also poured scorn on any potency above 6x. Dudgeon’s colourful and emotive language arguably show that he was almost an allopath, unable to conceive of anything beyond the rather rigid ideas at the core of homeopathy – single drug, similars, and small doses, provings. One of Hahnemann’s star pupils [Clemens von Boenninghausen], who had little patience for low-potency types like Dudgeon, called them “amphibians…neither homeopaths nor allopaths…giving low dilutions in frequent repetition.” [71] Such a quote echoes Hahnemann himself when he said: “the converted are only hybrids, amphibians.” [72]Such tensions between the “genuine homeopaths and the pretenders,” [73] were soon to grow.

Detesting signatures, woolly or vaguely spiritual concepts, Dudgeon’s protestations reveal a desire to cling doggedly on to a tidy image of homeopathy of the weaker allopathic type. Threatened by the challenge to his beliefs that the high potencies and nosodes represented, most of all he simply did not want them to hold any truth. The key to the whole matter probably rested in some undisclosed claim to professional credibility and prestige that such ‘amphibians’ had conceived for themselves as respected practitioners to blend in within medicine as a whole, and their equal desire to influence its future direction. For such low-dosage, eclectic homeopaths as Hughes and Dudgeon, the ‘dangerous’ views of high potency homeopaths “were hopelessly unscientific, metaphysical, and a recipe for the permanent closure of doors to professional credibility.” [74] Thus, their ‘real problem’ was tied in with prestige and a desire to tie their version of homeopathy more firmly to the allopathic mainstream. They knew that transcendental methods and ideas would seriously compromise such a cosy arrangement.

C. Hering (1800-1880)

Portraying Dr Hering [1800-1880] as “the original suggester of the heresy,” [75] isopathy is, he contends, “stretching the principles of homeopathy too far. [76] It is “a mere clumsy attempt to revive the doctrine of signatures under a most irrational and repulsive form.” [77] He depicts so much of it as “ineffable trash. [78] While isopathy does indeed stretch the principles of homeopathy, but at its core, there sits an empirical database of some real cures. Attempts to lightly dismiss the doctrine do not comprise robust or measured intellectual invalidations, but more acts of disbelief and prejudice. Some prominent and respected homeopaths, such as Boenninghausen, repeatedly testified to the power of these high potencies: “the great curative power…of high potencies…since I almost exclusively employ these,” [79] “the efficiency of high potencies…[is] beyond all doubt;” [80] “since 1844…I have used high potencies almost exclusively.” [81] He mostly used the 200 and lower M potencies. Undoubtedly, Dudgeon and others closed their eyes to these claims and just wished they would go away.

Dudgeon also mixes isopathy up with much absurd material from antiquity, telling us that “Galen says that the brains of a camel are a cure for epilepsy,” [82] and that “the organs of foxes, wolves, dogs, sheep and swine are arbitrarily selected for supplying the remedial agent.” [83] This seems like a pretty desperate attempt to smear isopathy with any dirt he can find, including ancient and discredited, half-baked material on ‘signatures’, claiming that much of it is “the offspring of a prurient imagination or a most perverted pathological creed.” [84] Yet, by seeking to denounce and demonise isopathists as extreme deviants within homeopathy, a sect within a sect, and opponents of true homeopathy – enemies within – he calls for them to be expelled from the mother church and all ties severed. He condemns them as having no proven therapeutic value and of being an embarrassment that invites nothing but ridicule on homeopathy as a whole, and which threatens his undeclared desire to see homeopathy pulled closer to the allopathic mainstream.

Even when he claims that the use of isopathic remedies “has never extended beyond a few whimsical and fantastic individuals,” [85] which is not actually true, this exposes his attempts to deviantise isopathists, without successfully discrediting them at the intellectual level. It is an act of disbelief, that attempts to socially exclude, stigmatise and expel them from within the movement as unwanted heretics. This is also apparent when he refers to what he calls the “extravagances of the isopathists,” [86] their only extravagance being their use of nosodes and the higher potencies, accepted in the light of the miasm theory. [87]

This point is made abundantly clear when he says “the isopathic heresy, with its innumerable divergences and extravagances, has brought no small amount of ridicule upon homeopathy, and has been eagerly seized on by some of our opponents as a proper mark for their wit and satire. [88] Being unable to expel them by sound intellectual invalidation based upon actual homeopathic principles culled from the Organon, for example, the last resort is to have them deviantised as just ‘too weird’. Dudgeon always answers his own rhetorical question, “can we admit the truth of the isopathic principle as a rule of cure?” [89], with a resounding ‘no’.

He also accuses isopathy of being saddled with logical inconsistencies, and tries to show that many nosodes have no rational basis because they are not real remedies: “to give the morbid products of non-contagious diseases and the morbid matters excreted by some contagious diseases, which do not, however, contain the contagious principle of the disease…these matters are not capable of producing the disease in healthy individuals.” [90] He then elaborates this theme further, claiming: “the infecting principle of measles is contained in the blood…the matter of ophthalmia neonatorum contains undoubtedly a contagious principle…therefore, it is with respect to these and similar matters only that the isopathic principle can be applied, for they alone are capable of inducing in the healthy the disease to which they owe their origin.” [91] This was a dangerous strategy is open to criticism, because it is a deviation from the mainstream homeopathic principles.

By implying that only toxic, infectious or contagious materials can yield nosodes [remedies], this clearly denotes an abandonment of the usual homeopathic essentialism in his thinking, a bacterial thread almost, bearing in mind it was written some 40 years before the true Germ Theory itself had appeared in the modern form. Though many nosodes were not proven, yet their empirical use as useful adjuncts and intercurrent remedies, conferred upon them some credibility and validity, to reinforce their regular use by growing numbers of respected homeopaths. To transcendental homeopaths, nosodes like Carcinosin and Tuberculinum, for example, are valid remedies, not because they contain any poison, virus or contagious matter of a chemical nature, as Dudgeon demands, but because they are imbued with the ‘secret essence’ of cancer and TB, being made from diseased tissue. Similarly with remedies like Sol, Luna or X-ray, because the lactose has been exposed to and captured the essence of sunshine, moonlight or X-rays: “imponderabilia [like] electricity and the X-ray are both capable of potentisation;” [92] “A drachm vial filled with absolute alcohol was exposed to a Crook’s tube in operation for half an hour, and then brought up to the sixth centesimal potency;” [93] “Lyssin, or Hydrophobinum; saliva of a rabid dog…introduced and proved by Hering in 1833, fifty years before the crude experiments of Pasteur with the serum;” [94] “Electricitas…the potencies were prepared from milk sugar which has been saturated with the current.” [95] The point is that diseased tissue contains the ‘essence’ of that disease, its fundamental but invisible disease-creating force.

This is an essentialist point of view inherent to homeopathy, and has nothing to do with any alleged ‘contagious principle’ of Dudgeon. The use of nosodes was not based upon ‘belief’, supposition or superstition, even though Dudgeon suggests that “these isopathic preparations seem to accommodate themselves remarkably to the pathological views of those who administer them,” [96] which seems an astonishing claim for a homeopath to make. Their use was always supported by and grounded in clinical experience. [97]

What he also seems to be saying, when viewed at the deeper level, is that since no symptoms can theoretically derive from non-contagious material, therefore no cures can devolve from them either. In other words, all provings [and implicitly, all cures] must involve the use of ‘toxic’ [symptom-producing] material. In this sense, he denies any natural sympathy that might pertain between a drug and its effects, which is today seen as essential, innate, or spiritual, and which Dudgeon insists must be solely actual, physical, chemically detectable and pathogenic. Like Simpson saying that “no poison in the billionth or decillionth…would in the least degree affect a man or harm a fly.” [98] Such reads like the outright demolition of a core homeopathic principle and its replacement with a very material and literal reading of a fundamentally allopathic principle. He therefore also denies any mere phenomenological resonance that might adhere between a remedy and its symptoms: “the artificial illness that proving initiates…alters inner states which are apprehended initially through changed sensations, images, feelings, dreams and the production of outer symptoms,” [99]

A more modern example, “In February 1998 we initiated a proving of positronium…made at the particle accelerator…ethanol in a vial was exposed to the radiation of decaying positronium – approximately 1,000,000,000 annihilation events being captured over a 24 hour period. This was run up to the thirtieth…[which] was the proving potency.” [100] In contrast to Dudgeon’s claims, such matters prove that symptoms can be induced by higher potencies. He implicitly seems to deny the spiritual [essentialist] aspect inherent to the homeopathy of Hahnemann himself: “the homeopath…evokes by triturations, succussion, etc, his ‘spiritual’ powers, principles, or influences, out of material bodies, as house-salt, charcoal, oyster shells, etc.” [101] Dudgeon conveniently ignores Hahnemann’s basic finding that many otherwise medicinally inert substances can be converted into remedies by potentisation.

Following, in his creation of homeopathy, the maxim of “everything that can hurt is something that can heal,” [102] though Hahnemann was mindful of the nature of poisonings, [103] for the same reason Shakespeare once observed: “in the infant rind of this small flower, poison hath residence and medicine power,” [104] and although it is self-evident that “drugs, in crude form…[do] have the power to make even well people sick,” [105] yet this line of argument ignores the more subtle dimension of sickness, and those “agents, material or immaterial, which modify disease.” [106] For example, what really in modern parlance, is a dream proving [107] or a 10M potency? Or, what is the vital force? Because such nebulosities cannot be expressed in the familiar materialist language of modern science, they seem somewhat ineffable, in the last analysis, being taken on trust, as “idealised entities,” [108]; so the idea of contagion becomes in truth a complex subject – “he caught the disease and catches the cure.” [109] We do not see “disease itself any more than we see life, mind or thought.” [110] Conveniently sidestepping such deeper, and genuinely substantial issues, Dudgeon merely denounces nosodes on reflex as unproven, and therefore as illegitimate, additions to the materia medica, which, as an argument, is a curate’s egg – only good in parts. Lord knows what he would have made of modern remedies like Berlin Wall, [111] Luna [112] or Venus! [113] Can such remedies be presumed to contain any ‘infecting principle’ as his view demands? Presumably not. More enlightened homeopaths realised what Dudgeon had blinded himself to: “the homeopath does not consider it essential that its bacilli be seen in the atom of diseased material which he prepares for medicinal use.” [114] As a modern master practitioner also puts it: “the material of the nosodes is much more than the micro-organisms involved.” [115]

A Luminous and Pivotal Example

When Dudgeon states that “there cannot theoretically be a more appropriate stimulant than the very agent capable of producing the same state, given in regulated doses,” [116] then this could be the nosode, or it could be the most similar drug [similimum], depending upon the case in hand. Dudgeon is right in saying that the basis of Similia involves “the curative process in admitting the possibility of cure by an agent capable of producing the same disease.” [117] He therefore does admit some uses for nosodes. For example, “I find a good many cases of measles which apparently recovered very quickly under the use of morbilline,” [118]; “varioline in…cases of smallpox…[having a] decidedly beneficial influence exerted by the remedy on the course of the disease,” [119]; but he insists that “isopathic agents should, in my opinion, be strictly limited to really infectious morbid products.” [120] His views on contagion seem peculiar to modern ears – “contagion by means of clothes…and often by the mere emanations from the patient.” [121] The entire concept of contagion is philosophically both more ancient and more complex and more subtle than Dudgeon pretends. Right down to the time of Sydenham [1624-89], it was always rooted in a form of ‘spiritual invasion’ [Pagel, Temkin]. It is probably his deceivingly literal and allopathic interpretation of homeopathy, which blinded Dudgeon to these deeper subtleties.

Having difficulty in his attempts to find any valid intellectual means to denounce transcendentalism, and being unable to state why he would impose limits upon the use of remedies or miasms, his condemnations lack focus and failed to attract any followers; he failed to supply a coherent rationale to justify his prejudices. He clutches desperately at rules and certainties that turn out to be only ‘castles made of smoke’. Dudgeon only permits entry into the realm of ‘the real’ and ‘the approved’, those provings and cures obtained by using contagious or toxic material. This would logically invoke a corollary that only material doses can induce symptoms in the healthy and that only material and sub-material doses can elicit cures: “the dynamic potentised drug is the chief factor in both proving and healing;” [122]

As a 3xer, one can see where he is fixated, but since the 1850s homeopathy has moved forward a great deal. The reality of the high potencies [higher than 6x] is not just the reality of cures obtained with fantastically high potencies [30c to CM], but also includes the reality of symptoms being induced in people with high potencies, [123] – “the dynamic potentised drug is the chief factor in both proving and healing” [124] – not to mention more recent things like dream provings. [125] When Close [1860-1929] mildly suggests that “the whole scale of potencies from the lowest to the highest is open to the homeopathic physician,” [126] such would seem an outrageously heretical suggestion to the likes of Dudgeon, who is impatient to dismiss any spiritual link between remedy and patient and most unwilling to adopt higher potencies, purely on the basis of disbelief and trepidation. He clearly felt that this would disastrously lead homeopathy over some disreputable Niagara Falls straight into some airy-fairy ‘anything goes’ policy, much to the delight and furious applause of allopaths everywhere.

It is clear, that there exists a real province within homeopathy that embraces the nebulous, but it is a province lying entirely beyond the conceptual grasp of someone like Dudgeon; a realm he dare not enter lest “the wheel be broken at the well.” [127] Yet, another desire to negotiate and retain a prestigious relationship with orthodoxy, spawned a polarisation of the movement into those who were attracted by the nebulous in homeopathy and those others who were repelled by nebulosities. Yet, in terms both of ideas and technique, this polarity already existed even in the Organon and, as we shall see, even in Hahnemann himself. It certainly existed in German homeopathy, with its many rebels and dissenters from the official doctrine.

For all the reasons thusfar explored, Dudgeon is clearly a quite luminous and pivotal example of an articulate but conservative homeopathic “old guard”[128], who at best could only grasp Hahnemann’s teachings in a crudely allopathic fashion; an ‘old guard’ who controlled UK homeopathy at that time and were manifestly sceptical of high potencies and nosodes, and very resistant to change. [129] Like Hughes, Dudgeon wished to root homeopathy solely within the framework of an allopathic patter, in terms of familiar and more trusted concepts like ‘diseases’ and ‘remedies’. Much later, in the 1890s, homeopathy in the UK then took a sharp turn towards American transcendentalism. [130] This inspired an expansion of homeopathy both at the theoretical and practical levels, to embrace the full reality of miasms, higher potencies, spiritual ideas about remedies, and, more recently, dream provings, essences, mentality and disposition as the dominant factors or ‘core concepts’ and more miasms, not only the original three, but also tubercular and cancer miasms, as new offshoots of Psora. [131] Homeopathy today has expanded when compared to the rather narrow, rigid, and limited view of early Hahnemannian homeopathy. Yet, both lineages in modern homeopathy can be traced back to Hahnemann, not just the more conservative or allopathic version preferred by Dudgeon. It has expanded beyond all rules and limits, which any ‘insiders’ have sought to impose upon it, so great has been its growth.

Robert E. Dudgeon (1820-1904)

According to Dudgeon, the whole isopathic “affair finds but little favour in Hahnemann’s eyes,” [132] and therefore, by implication, it is safe to condemn it both as un-homeopathic and as nonsense! He depicts it as a medical darkness, a crooked path to be avoided. Yet, Dudgeon is wrong. As usual, Hahnemann was not disapproving, as Dudgeon claims, he was ambivalent. He saw some uses for nosodes and miasms, but also some problems. Likewise with the higher potencies. He went so far with these concepts and methods, but only so far; he stopped short of some of the others in embracing them. He did not fully embrace isopathy; he partially embraced it. His was a mixed response. The ‘highs vs. lows struggle’ dominated not only American [133] and British homeopathy in the last quarter of the 19th century; it was a widespread division much before that. Having seeds in the Organon; it is inherent to early homeopathy in Germany, and indeed had roots in Hahnemann himself.

This radical new isopathic and transcendental homeopathic conception, or ‘agent of change’, which originated about the time of the publication of Chronic Diseases in 1828, [134] soon spawned a new movement within homeopathy, a dangerous and frightening sub-sect [to people like Dudgeon], gathering to its cause a motley but energetic crew of rebels, dissenters and freethinkers. It immediately gained support from those who indulged a taste for the higher potencies, like Korsakoff [1788-1853], Boenninghausen [1785-1864], Stapf [1788-1860], and Griesselich [1804-48],. Such pioneers were then followed up by Hering, Allen [1830-1909], Skinner [1825-1906], Berridge [1844-1920], Burnett [1840-1901], Clarke [1853-1931], Kent [1849-1916], and Weir [1879-1971]. [135]

P. W. L. Griesslich (1804-1948)

This transcendental ‘virus’ spread insidiously throughout American homeopathy, with its strongly metaphysical inclinations, and then began to infect small groups in British homeopathy by about 1870. “Kent [placed great]…emphasis upon mental symptoms and the use of high potencies. They first appeared [in Britain] when Dr Octavia Lewin presented a paper…in 1903…Dudgeon, who was present at the meeting, raged against the whole idea.” [136] The cases were treated with 1M, 81M and CM potencies and “Dr Clarke congratulated Lewin on the courage she had manifested in treating them with single doses.,” [137] At the meeting Dr Dudgeon, clearly outraged, “spoke out against the use of high dilutions and quoted…’quod fieri potest per pauca, non debet fieri per pauca’…if we can get by with few dilutions, we ought not to employ many.” [138] In fact, to correct Leary, the Kentian influence had twice visited Britain before, via Drs Skinner and Berridge in 1870s Liverpool, and via Gibson Miller in 1880s Glasgow. [139] In any case, Dudgeon was ejected from the meeting. [140]

Dudgeon and Close On Disease and Cure

When we come to compare Dudgeon [1853] to Close [1924], for example, then the differences between them become very pronounced and we can measure what progress had been made. After 1900, we behold an expansive and unstoppable movement of transcendentalism, shamelessly declaring the power of high potencies and the use of nosodes in even the most serious conditions, and sweeping all before it. While for most of the 19th century, conservative British homeopaths prescribed remedies “in low potency, usually 1x or 3x, but mother tinctures were used regularly,” [141] yet “by 1910 there was a complete change from the prescription of 90% material doses to 70% or more of high potencies.” [142] Therefore, Dudgeon was wrong when he claimed isopathy to be neither “consistent with theoretic probability,” [143] nor “borne out by experience.” [144] His claim that there were “no arguments having the slightest claim to validity brought forward in its support,” [145] and no facts to substantiate it, seems like a very blinkered view. In fact, by the 1870s an abundance of evidence was in existence to underpin this burgeoning movement, and a significant rationale was supplied by Hahnemann’s acute and chronic miasms. [146]

On a theoretical level, the use of high potencies and nosodes certainly acts to confirm and underscore the essentialist ideas of transcendental homeopathy and therefore became important emblems of its sense of identity, which are strongly preferred to the materialist, bacterial and physiological constructs of allopathy. Homeopathy has always had to struggle to demarcate and police its own borders, and to retain a distinctive sense of medical and philosophical identity that separates it from the politically dominant and more powerful allopathic medicine. Even though the movement was now in decline, and entering what was to be a seventy year period of stagnation, nevertheless, it was henceforth to be ‘pure homeopathy’ or nothing.

When Dudgeon also complains that “the disgusting character of many of the preparations introduced into our materia medica by the isopathists has been particularly held up to public condemnation by our adversaries,” [147] such a view seems only relevant to those stuck in the past and terrified of progress. They were only ‘disgusting’ in their origin, before potentisation had rendered them as safe as baby’s milk. Indeed, it ethically behoves any physician to explore any means of curative treatment: “the homeopaths…have not hesitated to explore filth, decay, and disease for morbific products or nosodes. Diseased material from animals and plants, and the poisonous secretions of reptiles, fishes, and insects, are found to be indispensably curative in desperate or obscure diseases.” [148] Dudgeon can again be seen evading his real problems concerning the prestige and social standing of homeopaths. As Dr Burnett himself once bitterly put it: “the social value of [surgery] is a baronetcy. The social value of [homeopathic remedies] is slander and contempt.” [149]

Compared to Dudgeon’s view, Close states that “the gross, tangible, lesions and products in which disease ultimates are not the primary object of the homeopathic prescription.” [150] Close goes right to the heart of the matter in stating that it is not symptoms that need correction, but function. “Function creates the organs…function reveals the condition of the organs,” [151] and he further reveals that “the totality of the functional symptoms of the patient is the disease.” [152] This somewhat flies in the face of the Hughes/Dudgeon claim that disease is a localised affair, a material affair that must be treated with material doses – tinctures, 1x and 3x. But, seizing his quarry firmly, Close deepens the real focus of homeopathy not upon the tissues, but into “the realm of pure dynamics;” [153] what he calls the “sphere of homeopathy is limited primarily to the functional changes from which the phenomena of disease arise.” [154]

Manifestly, after 1880 or so, homeopathy had become increasingly concerned with ‘essence’ or the deeper and invisible ‘genotype’ of disease, rather than with phenotype [the visible]; with causes rather than with effects. Such a shift clearly reflects the transcendental focus and essentialist nature of this later form of homeopathy – a far subtler and more sophisticated system than its crudely allopathic predecessor, so beloved of the ‘amphibians’. When Close speaks of “the morbid vital processes,” [155] and that any pathological changes and “physical effects of mechanical causes, are not primarily within the domain of Similia, and therefore are not the object of homeopathic treatment,” [156] he means to emphasise to all homeopaths that true homeopathy aims not to directly remove Dudgeon’s external ‘phenotype’ of disease, in the tissues, but to remove its root cause, its internal ‘genotype’ – the fount from which all symptoms spring. “In faithful treatment, it is sought to accomplish an end far more subtle than the mechanical removal of bacilli…” [157] Symptoms were not seen by homeopaths as the disease, but as the results, the end-products, of deeper dynamic disease processes: “tissue changes…are but the results of disease;” [158] “a cure is not a cure unless it destroys the internal or dynamic cause of disease.” [159]

When Close states that the “real cure…takes place solely in the functional and dynamical sphere,” [160] we can see that his emphasis has shifted away from any visible pathology resident in the organs, tissues and cells, to the underlying vital and dynamic processes that underpin and derange the cells and tissues. It has moved away from the physical body per se to the vital force, the mind and spirit, disposition, modalities and peculiar symptoms of the patient; from the visible realm of germ and cell, to the hidden, archetypal and miasmic realm; from effects to causes; from matter to spirit [essence]; from phenotype to genotype. The focus has shifted to those dynamic forces that lie behind and direct tissue processes and tissue changes.

Even in the perception of remedies and diseases, the whole focus and emphasis has subtly shifted from the gross and physical to the mental, emotional, and dispositional factors of the proving, of the remedy and of the patient [disease]. This becomes even more clearly visible in the work of modern figures like Sankaran, Scholten, Vithoulkas, Eizayaga and Candegabe. [161] The “homoeopathic gaze,” [162] no longer falls so much upon the ‘disease’, the symptoms or the condition, but much more upon the mentality and disposition, constitution, layers, essence, which distinguish the remedy or case in its uniqueness. Uniqueness and individuality being the true realm of Similia: “homeopathy considers the single patient as indivisible and unique,” [163] recognising “health as a dynamic equilibrium,” [164] of invisible forces ultimately under the control of the vital force. Previous talk of conditions and diseases, henceforth becomes muted by that in favour of the highly individualised nature of cases and patients and the mental symptoms of the case and the remedy – what Vithoulkas and Sankaran would call the ‘essence states’, and what Eizayaga calls the ‘genotype.’ [165]

S. M. Close (1860-1929)

Close validates this view by tracing it back to its true source when he maintains that “Hahnemann introduces us into the realm of dynamics, the science…of motion. In medicine dynamical commonly refers to functional as opposed to organic disease.” [166] Power, Close insists, does not reside in the body, in the tissues or the cells themselves, it “resides at the centre;” [167] disease “is the suffering of the dynamis.” [168] Close devotes considerable energy to clearly defining disease; an effort which repays close study. For example, he says that “homeopathy does not treat disease; it treats patients.” [169] Disease, he claims, is “an abnormal vital process;” [170] “a dynamic aberration of our spirit-like life;” [171] “a perverted vital action;” [172] it is “not a thing, but only the condition of a thing;” [173] that in the last analysis disease is “primarily only an altered state of life and mind.” [174] This is akin to Kent’s likening of cure to a qualitative re-tuning of a piano, [175] and is all a very far cry from using remedies in material doses [1x or 3x] for named conditions.

Close lays bare its deeper nature when he says disease is “primarily a morbid disturbance or disorderly action of the vital powers and functions,” [176] or “purely a dynamical disturbance of the vital principle.” [177] Furthermore, he logically pronounces that because “disease is always primarily a morbid dynamical or functional disturbance of the vital principle,” [178] so in turn it is clear that “functional or dynamic change always precedes tissue changes,” [179] and that cure has been established only “when every perceptible sign of suffering of the dynamis has been removed.” [180] For Close, it is precisely upon such reasons and definitions that “the entire edifice of therapeutic medication governed by the law of Similia,” [181] has been conceived and constructed. All these insightful statements elaborated by Close might be said to derive from Kent, but, as he insists, they also flow naturally from Hahnemann’s own sentiments in the Organon: [182] “let it be granted now…that no disease…is caused by any material substance, but that every one is only and always a peculiar, virtual, dynamic derangement of the health.” [183]

Close very emphatically places his bets not upon a condition or disease label, or in Dudgeon’s beloved cells and tissues, or material doses of drugs, but firmly in the invisible sphere of causes – the vital force and the potentised drug. When he says, “the tumor is not the disease, but only the ‘end product’ of the disease,” [184] he means to show that disease is a process of change within the organism, directed, not by itself, not under its own power in the cells, but by the power of a deranged vital force that impinges upon and coordinates the cellular processes. Such is certainly a view of disease as a “dynamic derangement of the life force,” [185] more as derangement of process, rather than derangement of structure. The remedy for these sickness processes is equally dynamic and nebulous – the potentised drug – which gives rise to the comment by Kent: “lower potency…less fine and less interior than the higher,” [186] meaning the higher the potency, the deeper it penetrates into the hidden realm of disease causes.

For Close, then, ipso facto, homeopathy sees as its mission to un-derange the vital force, which is precisely what he claims its remedies do. All of this is expressed in words that Kent would also have chosen. Close, one might say, treads perfectly within the ‘verbal footprints’ of Kent himself, who in turn we might say follows closely Allen, Hering, and Boenninghausen. They all speak with one voice, even though their voices span ten decades.

“That which we call disease, is but a change in the Vital Force expressed by the totality of the symptoms.”
