Should Homeopaths be called Doctors?
It is of critical importance that homeopaths fight for the right to legally call themselves doctors. Homeopathic treatment is of vital importance to the public. The historical record and modern day epidemiological reports, in vitro, in vivo, in silico tests and clinical trials show homeopathy is an astoundingly superior medicine.
Take the recent swamp fever epidemic in Cuba as a stunning example. In 2007 the results of a very large-scale homeoprophylaxis intervention against swamp fever (Leptospirosis) in a dangerous epidemic situation was reported by Cubans in three provinces of that country.
2,300,000 homeopathic doses stop epidemic
The Cubans prepared a homeoprophylactic formulation from dilutions of four strains of Leptospirosis and administered it orally to 2.3 million persons at high risk during a swamp fever epidemic in an affected region. Intervention was then compared with non-intervention.
Homeoprophylactic intervention showed a significant decrease of swamp fever, while there was no decrease in non-intervention regions.
This is conformation that I have seen little response by the corporate controlled anti-homeopathy campaign. The Cubans are not controlled in their use of coroporatized medicine.
Such a trial would be unheard of of in corporatized countries.
Bracho, “Large-scale application of highly-diluted bacteria for Leptospirosis epidemic control.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20674839
This is not the first time that reports of the outstanding success of the use of homeopathics in massive disease control have been met with silence, ignored or thrown back in our faces by the racketeer controlled campaign against us.
Effective in epidemics
Homeopathy is effective in epidemics of scarlet fever, cholera, yellow fever, typhus, pneumonia and influenza.
Statistically then the number of lives saved by homeopathy are estimable. It may rank in the millions. (See my blog here on WordPress, “The Logic of Epidemics,” and my article “The Truth about Homeopathy and the Swine Flu” http://scienceofhomeopathy.com/swineflu1.htm)
And now we are facing a huge epidemic of soft tissue cancer.
Homeopathy stands ready to treat those who bear the most serious diseases.
Homeopaths must insist on the need for accredited schools and their services and abilities, and that they be recognized as such with the right titles. Homeopaths have historically proven themselves master physicians, and continue to do so.
Make no doubt about it, there is, literally, a fight to the death struggle by an organized campaign against homeopathy, to malign it, to suppress its use and even to outlaw it. It may not be a life and death struggle for homeopathy, for homeopathy as a doctrine will most likely continue. Rather it is a life and death struggle for the millions who potentially saved by it from cancer and other epidemics.
Homeopaths must become acutely aware of the competing interests that seek to dissuade the public from using it. Homeoapths must warn the public of the dangers of the criminally convicted allopathic pharmacy threatened by the statistically noted superiority of homeopathy in treating suffering from wide spread disease, that criminal interests seek to tortiously interfere with the practice of homeopathy and protect their monopoly.
The public needs to be informed. Doctor means teacher,and homeopaths must be the ones to lead the fight against the indiscriminate use of “pharmacides” by picketing their use, media and on the sidewalk.
We need more homeopaths.
This is an opportunity for the a to demonstrate the superiority of his craft.
We need more homeopaths. Calling htem doctors will attract more interested students.
Try homeopathy. It works.

I think you are precisely wrong. As long as homeopaths try to insist on using the term Doctor, they will be judged by the standards of science and clinical practice and found wanting. This is pretty much your whole problem right now, in fact – increasing scientific scrutiny driven by the fact that you market yourselves as medical rather than spiritual healers.
Admittedly dropping this pretence would impact on the placebo effect, but probably not affect outcomes that much; as Brien et. al identify in http://rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2010/11/08/rheumatology.keq234.full it is the consultation process that delivers benefit – Americans have paid fortunes to “analysts” for decades, it’s a ripe market.
