FDA APPROVES HOMEOPATHIC EBOLA CURE

The John Benneth Journal

MEDICINE IS POLITICS WRIT LARGE

Medicine is a social science and politics is nothing else but medicine on a large scale. Medicine as a social science, as the science of human beings, has the obligation to point out problems and to attempt their theoretical solution; the politician, the practical anthropologist, must find the means for their actual solution. – Virchow

Despite disbelief and outrage of pseudoscientists posing as “skeptics,” the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now regulates at least two (2)homeopathic cures for Ebola, the hemorrhagic fever currently terrorizing West Africa.

The primary traditional cure used homeopathically for hemorrhagic fevers is a dynamic extrusion of rattlesnake venom, Crotalus horridus (Crot-h).

Crot-h is a drug regulated and protected under Sections 201(g) and 201(j) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act (FDCA) of 1938. It is made from a virus substance listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS). The FDCA recognizes the HPUS as…

Vitamin c and adverse vacc reactions

Vitamin C Prevents Side Effects from the MMR Vaccine

by Helen Saul Case

(OMNS, September 10, 2016) This is not an article about whether vaccinations are “good” or “bad.” This is an article about how high-dose vitamin C can protect children from vaccination side effects. Until we have real choice as to whether or not we vaccinate our children, we must seek ways to make immunizations safer. High-dose vitamin C makes immunizations safer: http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v08n07.shtml

Giving the MMR Shot to a Child with Known Vaccination Sensitivity

Our daughter recently received the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccination. In fact, she received two. New York State recently changed the law requiring an additional MMR shot in order for children to attend kindergarten. We had to make sure that she received both injections this summer before school started. We were concerned about giving her two MMR shots (and so close together) because after a previous vaccination she had a serious reaction.

Years ago, before we learned to give huge doses of vitamin C before, during, and after immunizations, our daughter (then age 15 months) had a severe reaction to the DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus) vaccination: she lost her coordination, was screaming, falling over, and spiked a high fever. High-dose, saturation-level vitamin C cured her reaction to the DPT vaccine and taught us an important lesson: give more vitamin C. Much, much more. Now, in order to protect our children from any vaccination side effects, we give very high doses of vitamin C before, during (yes, even at the doctor’s office) and after immunizations. To read more see: http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v11n09.shtml and http://www.orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v12n07.shtml.

No, the MMR shot is not the same as a DPT shot. Just because our child reacted to one vaccine, doesn’t necessarily mean she will react to another. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Any vaccine can cause side effects” and “like any medicine, is capable of causing serious problems.” See: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/side-effects.htm When you consider just how much vitamin C our daughter held after the MMR vaccinations, we have to ask ourselves one question: where was it all going?

How Much C? A Lot. A Whole Lot.

Our five-year-old, 37-pound (about 17 kg) daughter received saturation-level doses of 8,000 to 11,000 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C every day the week before her first MMR vaccination. The day of her shot, she happily and comfortably held 24,000 mg. For the next couple of days after the shot, her dose was reduced to 20,000 mg/day. Then, for the next four days, her vitamin C dose went down to 15,000 mg/day. The next four: 14,000 mg, 13,000 mg, 12,000 mg and 11,000 mg per day respectively.

For the next several weeks leading all the way up to her second MMR shot, she was getting between 8,000 and 11,000 mg of vitamin C each day.

On the day of her second MMR shot, just a little over a month from the first one, she once again received and comfortably held 24,000 mg of vitamin C. The day after: 19,000 mg. Once again, using bowel tolerance as an indicator, we gradually decreased this dose over the two weeks following this second immunization to an average of 9,000 mg/day. Eventually, we went back to her regular dose of 5,000 mg/day or 1,000 mg/day per year of age, following the recommendation of Frederick Robert Klenner, MD: http://orthomolecular.org/library/jom/1998/articles/1998-v13n04-p198.shtml or http://www.doctoryourself.com/klennerpaper.html.

According to the CDC Vaccine Information Statement we received from our daughter’s pediatrician, the MMR vaccine can cause “mild problems” including fever, rash, and glandular swelling; “moderate problems” including fever-induced seizure and painful joints; and “severe problems” such as serious allergic reactions, deafness, coma, and permanent brain damage. See: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/side-effects.htm

Our daughter did not experience a single one of these side effects from the MMR shots. She had no vaccination reaction whatsoever. She had no fever, no swelling, no nothing. She was (and is) happy and healthy. How would things have gone if she had not been given high-dose vitamin C? We don’t know. And we aren’t about to take chances with potential side effects like coma or permanent brain damage.

Using Bowel Tolerance as an Indicator of “Enough” Vitamin C

Everyone wants to know, “How much vitamin C?” There is no set amount. This is why bowel tolerance is the ideal indicator. When warranted by such events as illness, potential illness, or immunizations, we give our children enough vitamin C to get just to the point of saturation, or loose stool. This is often indicated by a rumbling tummy or some gas. If stools become loose, we decrease how much vitamin C we give. If our children are happy and tooting away, that is just about right. After each MMR shot, our daughter’s body accepted up to 24,000 mg/day of vitamin C. On any other regular day, she would reach bowel tolerance at much lower doses.

To reiterate, we give vitamin C to bowel tolerance when our kids show signs of sickness (runny nose, coughing, sneezing), and before, during, and after immunizations. We get them to bowel tolerance of vitamin C before there is a full-blown illness, and to prevent side effects from vaccinations.

“The titration (bowel tolerance) method or large intravenous doses are absolutely necessary to obtain excellent results. The method produces spectacular effects in all patients capable of tolerating these doses. A placebo could not possibly work so reliably, even in infants and children, and have such a profound effect on critically ill patients.” – Robert F. Cathcart III, MD

This is how we apply Dr. Robert F. Cathcart’s bowel tolerance method: for our five year old daughter, we give oral doses of vitamin C throughout the day in divided doses, beginning the day with a larger “loading dose” (about 3,000 mg) and then give frequent, smaller doses (about 2,000 mg every two hours) right up to about an hour before bedtime. When she was younger, we gave less, and she “held” less. Bowel tolerance is an excellent indicator of “enough” vitamin C no matter how old your child is.

When in Doubt, Give Vitamin C

Our daughter may be a special case. Maybe your child won’t need nearly this much vitamin C. However, knowing the incredible safety and effectiveness of high-dose vitamin C, we are very comfortable giving our daughter what I would like to call “take no chances” sized doses at immunization time.

No, we don’t take chances. We take vitamins. And we take a lot of them.

Tetanus vaccine info warnings

Adverse Reaction Reports:

Tetanus Vaccine

This section contains unsolicited adverse reaction reports associated with the tetanus vaccine. They are typical of the daily emails received by the Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute. Additional reaction reports possibly associated with the tetanus toxoid may be found in the sections on DPT/DTaP and pertussis.

[Tetanus 103] I developed reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) following a tetanus toxoid vaccine. I have very little use of the entire left side of my body, and the disease now appears to be moving into my right hip and leg.

[Tetanus 127] My 26-year-old friend was given a tetanus and diphtheria shot at work. About 4 or 5 hours later she developed neck pain, it was pulled to the left side, and she was unable to move it. Three days later she also developed swelling at the injection site.

[Tetanus 148] I received a tetanus shot because the doctors said it was way overdue. That night my arm hurt so bad I could not lay on it. My temperature was 104 degrees. The pain eventually spread to my upper back and neck.

[Tetanus 203] I had a tetanus shot in September and have been sick ever since. Where can I get information from someone who knows this is possible? My doctor just acted like I was an idiot, so I went untreated for four months.

[Tetanus 214] My friend has an immune disease and was given a tetanus shot, starting the onset of muscular degeneration. She and her mom attribute her rapid decline to the shot.

[Tetanus 245] Are there any studies on overdoses of the tetanus vaccine? My daughter had three tetanus shots within 1 1/2 years, and my son had two within this period. She was diagnosed with Lupus, and now he has asthma and an immune system disorder.

[Tetanus 284] When I was three months pregnant I cut myself and was “required” to get a tetanus shot. My son has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and attention deficit disorder. He also has grand mal seizures, an enlarged liver and heart, and made no growth hormone at birth.

[Tetanus 294] I went to a health clinic for a check-up and was told I needed a tetanus shot. I soon became pregnant and miscarried in my second month. My husband and I were distraught. I became pregnant a short time later and miscarried again. Since that time, I had another miscarriage — my third in my first year of marriage.

[Tetanus 301] In October, I received a tetanus shot. In December, I became pregnant. Our beautiful son was born 9 months later quite suddenly by C-section after a severe bleeding episode. Unfortunately, he passed away two days later. He had a deformity that begins in the early days of pregnancy.

You can test homeopathy

For those who still doubt … here’s a simple little experiment to check ifhomeopathic potentisation really does have an effect.

Purchase  some common green bean seeds and divide them into two groups. Water the first group (your control group) as normal. With the second group, your test group, water them too but only after adding 5 drops of potentised table salt (Nat-m 6C) per 50ml. You should see the beans from your test group grow more quickly and profusely than the control group, just as they did in the pilot study referenced at the bottom of this story, and even though a 6C potency is indistinguishable under a microscope from plain water.

And where can you get the Nat-m 6C? It is easy to buy from most homeopathic pharmacies or you can make your own – its simple. Just follow the instructions found in Three Scales of Potency.

(For the purpose of this experiment, you won’t need a ‘mother tincture’ or alcohol as per the instructions. Just add approximately 1 part of common table salt to 99 parts of water. Potentisation is quite flexible so measures don’t have to be exact for an effect to take place).

So, for the price of a few beans you too can test homeopathy.

(Green beans are not the only plants you can experiment with – any plant can be affected by a homeopathic potency as Darwin himself discovered. Just Google for the growing list of homeopathic research with other plants.)

MTHFR what is it,how to address it

An MTHFR mutation is a problem associated with poor methylation and enzyme production. MTHFR mutations affect every person differently, sometimes contributing to hardly any noticeable symptoms at all, while other times leading to serious, long-term health problems.
Although the exact prevalence rate is still up for debate, it’s believed that up to 30 percent to 50 percent of all people might carry a mutation in the MTHFR gene, which is inherited and passed down from parent to child. (1) Around 14 percent to 20 percent of the population might have a more severe MTHFR mutation that impacts overall health more drastically.
The MTHFR gene mutation was discovered during the completion of the Human Genome Project. Researchers realized that people with this type of inherited mutation tended to develop certain diseases, including ADHD, Alzheimer’s, atherosclerosis, autoimmune disorders and autism,more often than those without the mutation.
There is still a lot to learn about what this type of mutation means for people who carry it and go on to pass it along to their children. As the website MTHFR.net states, “Research is still pending on which medical conditions are caused by, or at least partially attributed to, the MTHFR gene mutations.” (2)
To date, there have been dozens of different health conditions tied to MTHFR mutations, although just because someone inherits this mutation doesn’t mean that person will wind up experiencing any problems.

What Is a MTHFR Mutation?
According to the Genetics Home Reference Library, MTHFR is a gene that provides the body with instructions for making a certain enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. In fact, “MTHFR” is the shortened name for this enzyme. (3)
There are two main MTHFR mutations that researchers focus on most often. These mutations are often called “polymorphisms” and affect genes referred to as MTHFR C677T and MTHFR A1298C. Mutations can occur on different locations of these genes and be inherited from only one or both parents. Having one mutated allele is associated with increased risk of certain health problems, but having two increases the risk much more.
An MTHFR gene mutation can change the way some people metabolize and convert important nutrients from their diets into active vitamins, minerals and proteins. Genetic mutations can also alter neurotransmitter and hormone levels. In some cases, although not all, changes in how this enzyme works can affect health parameters, including cholesterol levels, brain function, digestion, endocrine functions and more.

Natural Treatments for MTHFR Mutation Symptoms
1. Consume More Natural Folate, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12
Acquiring more folate (not folic acid, which is synthetic vitamin B9) can help with methylation. Getting more folate is very different than taking folic acid supplements, however. Some research even suggests that people with MTHFR mutations might have a harder time converting folic acid into its useable form and actually experience worsened symptoms from taking supplements containing folic acid.
Getting enough folate is especially important before and during pregnancy. The period three months before conception and during the first trimester of pregnancy, mothers who get enough folate lower their children’s risk for various health problems. Look for the bioavailable form of folate in supplements called l-methylfolate and consume plenty of foods with folate.
Having more folate in your diet means you’re better able to create the active form of 5-MTHF. Some of the best high-folate foods include:
Beans and lentils
Leafy green vegetables like raw spinach
Asparagus
Romaine
Broccoli
Avocado
Bright-colored fruits, such as oranges and mangoes
Those with a MTHFR mutation are also more likely to be low in related vitamins, including vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. These are easier to obtain from supplements, but food sources are always best. To get more B vitamins, focus on eating enough quality protein foods, organ meats, nuts, beans, nutritional yeast and raw/fermented dairy products.image
2. Treat Digestive Problems, Including Leaky Gut and IBS
Digestive complaints are common among people with MTHFR A1298C mutations. Many things affect digestive health, including nutrient intake, inflammation levels, allergies, neurotransmitter levels and hormone levels. For people who are already prone to nutrient deficiencies, leaky gut syndrome can make problems worse by interfering with normal absorption and raising inflammation.
To improve digestive/gut health, the following dietary adjustments can be very beneficial:
Reduce intake of inflammatory foods, such as gluten, added sugar, preservatives, synthetic chemicals, processed meats, conventional dairy, refined vegetable oils, trans fats and processed/enriched grains (which often include synthetic folic acid).
Increase intake of probiotic foods, which are fermented and supply “good bacteria” that aids in digestion.
Consume other gut-friendly foods, including bone broth, organic vegetables and fruit, flaxseeds and chia seeds, and fresh vegetable juices.
Focus on consuming healthy fats only, like coconut oil or milk, olive oil, grass-fed meat, wild-caught fish, nuts, seeds, and avocado.
3. Reduce Anxiety and Depression
Because of how it can negatively affect levels of neurotransmitters and hormones like serotonin, testosterone and estrogen, MTHFR mutations are tied to higher incidences of mental disorders, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and chronic fatigue. High levels of stress can also make MTHFR mutation symptoms even worse. Tips for dealing with these conditions include:
Supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids: Help to reduce inflammation and are beneficial for cognitive health.
Regularly practicing natural stress relievers: These include meditation, journaling, spending time outside, giving back or volunteering, praying, etc.
Regularly exercising: Helps to improve hormonal balance and sleep quality.
Using soothing essential oils, including lavender, chamomile, geranium, clary sage and rose.
Eliminating use of recreational drugs and reducing alcohol intake, which can both make symptoms worse by interfering with methylation. (4)
4. Protect Heart Health
Studies show that homocysteine levels tend to rise with age, smoking and use of certain drugs, so the first step is to focus on taking care of yourself as you get older and limiting use of harmful substances. (5) Other tips for keeping your heart healthy include:
Eating a healthy diet, especially one with plenty of high-fiber foods
Getting regular exercise and keeping your weight in a healthy range
Managing stress to prevent worsened inflammation
Consider taking the following supplements, which can help improve blood flow, cholesterol and blood pressure: magnesium, omega-3s, CoQ10, carotenoids and other antioxidants, selenium, and vitamins C, D and E.

False statements about homeopathy and the truth

Frequent False Statements About Homeopathy… and the Truth

(adapted from National Center for Homeopathy – http://www.nationalcenterforhomeopathy.org )

“There is no evidence that homeopathy works at all.”

This is the most often repeated falsehood emanating from anti-homeopathy pundits, a tenet they hold as sacred, cite from each other and repeat without shame to media and public alike.  The truth is that there are over 600 published research studies of homeopathy and more are being completed every day.  Research shows the effectiveness of homeopathy for human and animal patients with a wide range of acute, chronic and epidemic conditions such as eczema, asthma, upper respiratory illnesses, ear infections, fibromyalgia, menopause, diarrhea, ADHD, irritable bowel and depression.  There is even laboratory research showing the action of homoeopathic remedies on individual cells, including cancer cells.  See this page for an impressive sampling… not to mention pages elsewhere on this site.

Homeopathy is nothing but placebo.”

Again, hundreds of basic science, pre-clinical and clinical studies have been published in respected, peer-reviewed journals showing effects of homeopathic remedies exceeding those of placebo. Furthermore, many homeopathy studies have been done using animals and cell cultures, which are not susceptible to the placebo effect.

Those who claim homeopathy is invalid because it is unexplained should also note that the placebo effect is always controlled for in high-quality studies–even though it, too, is unexplained.

“Homeopathy is ‘implausible.”

First, “plausible” is a subjective term; plausibility is in the eye of the beholder.  Beware subjective measures when delivered by people with strong and/or hidden agendas!

The detractor’s claim of “implausibility” directed at homeopathy arises from the system’s use of very highly diluted medicines.  These medicines are prepared through a series of sequential dilutions of medicinal substances with vigorous shaking at each stage of dilution, a process known as succussion.  Thanks to the work of scientists at institutions like Penn State University, the University of Washington, Stanford University, Moscow State University, and London South Bank University, we now know that the properties and effects of substances are dictated by their molecular structures, not their chemical composition.  Thanks to these same scientists, we also know that ultra-dilutions, like homeopathic remedies, do indeed contain stable and unique molecular structures with recognizable properties (See Materials Letters. 62. 2008). The water studies convincingly show that water is restructured in the process of homeopathic remedy preparation allowing for transfer of information from the original solute (substance) to water.

What’s more, there have been numerous high-quality peer reviewed studies showing the biological effects of homeopathic remedies.  The most frequently used experiment on ultra-dilutions has involved basophils, the white blood cells involved in the immune response.  One series of experiments conducted in Europe over a period of 25 years on a multi-laboratory basis with independent replications has consistently shown the inhibition of basophil activation by high dilutions of histamine (Inflammation Research. 2009).   Another study, a meta-analysis led by Claudia Witt M.D. of the Charité University Medical Centre in Berlin evaluated the quality and results of biological experiments with ultramolecular, agitated dilutions.  Seventy-three percent of these studies showed an effect with ultramolecular dilutions (Complimentary Therapies in Medicine.  2007).   Yet another study—this one also the subject of repeated experiments over a long period—shows the effect of ultramolecular dilutions of aspirin on blood clotting (Clinical and Applied Thrombosis/Hemostasis 2008).  And there are others.

“Homeopathy needs to be held to the standard of conventional science, using the Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) to measure its efficacy.”

The RCT is the most popular method used by pharmaceutical companies to bring a new drug to the marketplace.   However, it is not the best scientific method for researching whole-systems modalities such as homeopathy. A whole-systems approach recognizes that the human body and mind are dynamic and complex, with each part influencing the other and acting together.  Therefore, one part or system of the body cannot be studied in isolation without looking at the effect on the whole person. Scientists find the RCT methodology is too restrictive when studying a whole-system methodology, and advocate other more appropriate research paradigms.

Many scientists and health practitioners question the usefulness of RCT studies even in standard drug testing.  They prefer “real world” or “clinical outcome” studies that are more applicable to day-to-day practice instead of strictly-controlled drug trials.  Health practitioners and the US Department of Health and Human Services are calling for “comparative effectiveness” research. These are studies that compare the usefulness of various treatments and provide more practical information about their use for patients and practitioners.  “Clinical outcome,” “comparative effectiveness” and “systems-based” studies are types of research that are better suited for investigating the healing ability of the body and the effect of homeopathic treatment.

Having said all that, homeopathy has been shown to be effective in plenty of RCTs.

“Homeopathy is woo-woo, magic, quackery and pseudo-science.”

We cite the famous quote from thinker and science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” That is to say, to people who don’t understand the technology behind a process, or have not tested it empirically enough to know it is reliable, it appears to be magic.

These statements are attempts on the part of the detractors/denialists, who want to shut down homeopathy, to discredit and associate homeopathy with unscientific ideas.  Throughout its history, those with a vested interest in conventional medicine have sought to discredit homeopathy out of economic self-interest.  (See this page; for detail, read Divided Legacy by Coulter, Harris.)  That pattern continues today all over the world.  The technique is to repeat certain words and phrases repeatedly (e.g., “there is no evidence for homeopathy”) hoping they will stick in people’s minds, creating a negative impression.

Homeopathy is a complete medical system, based on principles of holism and the scientific laws of nature.  It has a 200-year history, a significant body of confirming research and hundreds of millions of people using it all over the world. It is part of the public health care systems of many nations in Europe, South America and Asia, and part of public health precautions in Cuba.

Homeopathy is dangerous because sick people will delay getting the medical treatment that they need and will die.”

Beware scaremongering, too.

1.  Homeopathy is not exclusive and can be used along with conventional and other complementary medical treatments.  There is no need for a patient to choose one over the other.

2. It is a common tactic by the detractors, when their other arguments against homeopathy fail, to infer that patients are gullible, have poor judgment and are unable to decide properly about the health treatments they want.  In fact, patients have the right to choose treatments, and spend much time researching both conventional and integrative health options, making choices based on their own needs and wishes. The homeopathic community fully supports them in doing so.

“There is no need for homeopathy because people have evidence-based conventional medical treatment to use.”

Sadly, “evidence-based medicine”–an excellent idea, in our view–has been corrupted into a buzzword that the homeopathy opponents use to attempt to discredit homeopathy and other alternative treatments.  “Evidence-based” means that data from randomized controlled studies is claimed to give certainty about whether a treatment will work and is safe. In fact, 66 per cent of the treatment procedures and drugs that are popularly used in conventional medicine have no or little evidence to recommend them.  (British Medical Journal, 2007: see this page.)  Many procedures have serious complications and many drugs cause difficult unwanted effects.  These situations drive people to search for less harmful, health promoting alternatives, such as homeopathy.

“Homeopathic remedies are unsafe.”

Often said by the same people who claim they are nothing but water, this statement is false. Current studies show that homeopathic remedies are unquestionably safe. (Thompson, Homeopathy:2004). Homeopathy has been widely used to save lives in epidemics.  Millions of people in Cuba are now routinely given homeopathic remedies as a preventative in Cuba, with no serious adverse effects reported (Bracho, Homeopathy 2010, and personal communication). Possibly the best proof that homeopathic remedies are safe has been furnished by groups of anti-homeopathy detractors swallowing entire bottles of pills as a media stunt.  The homeopathic community appreciates their work in raising public awareness of homeopathy’s safety.
