Kill the health scare system and replace it with one that works.
HOMEOPATHIC PHYSICIAN GENERAL
What the world needs now is a new office of Physician General, a homeopath. Homeopathy is curative medicine, superior to the palliative medicine of allopathy. Homeopaths are superior physicians.
It’s time to make a realphysician the chief medical authority.
A surgeon general is the head of a public health service or the head of an armed forces medical service. The title of surgeon general is outdated, from the 19th century, when the office was commissioned in 1871. It is laughable, that in the 21st century, we are still mired in 19th century concepts that have become outdated and superceded by a new biological paradigm of supramolecular medicine, the new defining term for what homeopathy is.
“Surgeon General” is now the highest ranking health official in the US. He or she has the power, by executive order, to issue decrees mandating compliance in matters of public health. The US Physician General replaces the Surgeon General as the chief medical officer in government.
The problem with such a title is it designates a martial command of medicine. It implies that the highest, most critical function in medicine is surgery, the branch of invasive, allopathy that treats injuries or disorders of the body by incision or manipulation, especially with instruments.
[Allopathy is the most common form of treatment regarded as “medicine” in the U.S. It treats illnesses with substances and procedures that create symptoms and conditions different from those of the illness, usually desensitization or removal.]
Allopathy does not cure.
Allopathy is inferior to homeopathic medicine. Homeopathic medicine creates symptoms similar to those of the illness in order to trigger powerful, organic curative forces. It is superior in most appliations to allopathy.
Now, many conditions do require surgery, but many conditions do not, yet are treated with unnecessary and dangerous surgery.
DEATH BY ALLOPATHY
“An estimated 7.5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed each year, writes Gary Null, PhD., in Death by Medicine. Rather than reverse the problems they purport to fix, these unwarranted procedures can often lead to greater health problems and even death. A 1995 report by Milliman & Robertson, Inc. concluded that nearly 60 percent of all sugeries performed are medically unnecessary, according to Under The Influence of Modern Medicine by Terry A. Rondberg. Some of the most major and frequently performed unnecessary surgeries include hysterectomies, Cesarean sections and coronary artery bypass surgeries.”
One report shows that within a 6 year period there were 65000 lawsuits against allopathic drug companies.
There is more to medicine than just surgery. Invasive, palliative “medicine” as practiced in allopathy is inferior to the curative medicine of homeopathy.
Take the one most controersial issue of our time: Tobacco
The effects and antidotes of tobacco smoking and usage were already well known in great specifity by homeopathic physicians a century before the allopaths had anything to ay about it. The Surgeon General in 1964 Dr. Luther Leonides Terry, M.D. published the landmark report in 1964 saying that smoking “may be” hazardous to health.
That alone was enough to spark nationwide anti-smoking efforts. But Terry and his committee refused to define cigarette smoking as an addiction . . the committee was made up of “doctors” who smoked.
Anyone who has taken up smoking knows that the consumption of tobacco has addictive effects. Terry’s obvious error, which anyone can see now was false, wasn’t corrected for 24 years.
By the 1900’s homeopathic references had noted extensive symptomology for tobacco poisoning. The more current Repertorium Publicum shows 2,106 ymptoms specifically for Tabacum.
No one can now deny that the effects of tobacco can be dramatic, if not drastic, on the human constitution. But these have been seen for hundreds of years. Fifteenth century Turkish writer wrote, “As to tobacco’s harmful effects, there is no doubt . . . tobacco is medically noxious in that it makes morbid the aerial essence . . for men of dry temperment . . it is no wise permissile. It will increase his dryness an will constantly dessicate the moisture of his lungs.”
English King James I, in his 1604 Counterblast to Tobacco, wrote “A custom loathsome to the eye, hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, dangerous to the lungs, and in black stinking fume thereof, nearest resembling the horrible Stygian smoke of the pit that is bottomless.”
In a 1790 essay entitled Tobacco, American journalist and rebel Phillip Freneau wrote, “Tobacco was surely designed to poison and destroy Mankind. ”
To be fair, it should be noted that not everyone who smokes dies of it. Of the nine oldest known living people, a third of them smoked. Louise Marie Meilleur was an avid smoker and lived to be 117. Shigechiyo Izumi took up smoking at the age of 70 and lived to be 120 years old. Jeanne Calment, the last person to have met Van Gogh, lived to be 122 and smoked up until the age of 117. I seem to recollect reading somewhere that she smoked Gauloise, a short, wide unfiltered cigarette made with strong, dark Syrian tobacco that stings the lungs.
In a Farewell to Tobacco, 19th century English writer Charles Lamb wrote “”For thy sake, Tobacco, I would do anything but die.”
So, as you can see, tobacco is an example of the egregious long term medicalincompetence of the Office of the Surgeon General. But don’t stop
Vice Admiral Regina Benjamin, current U.S. Surgeon General
there. There are other mass maladies even worse than tobacco that the Surgeon General has missed.
IT’S IN THE WATER
How about the use of chlorine and fluoride in drinking water?
Standby for shocking news.
Chlorine and fluoride are deep acting poisons that have gone unnoticed by the Surgeon General, poisons that homeopaths have known about for many years, poisons that have contributed to the high murder rate and hypersexuality that can be seen in modern populations since their introduction in the mid 20th century.
Then there are the vaccines, which in essence are homeopathic. The only trouble is, the allpaths haven’t learned to cut the dose.
Then there are the countles allopathic drugs that flood the market that are bringing on a tidal wave of lawsuits and crinal penalties.
EVEN FAMOUS DEBUNKER USES HOMEOPATHY TO TREAT CANCER
“According to a report by the United States General Accounting Office, more than half of the drugs approved by the FDA between 1976 and 1985 had severe or fatal side-effects that had not been detected during the agency’s review and testing.
“In other words, after drug companies spent an estimated 12 years and $231 million dollars to research, test, and secure new drug approval through a very hands-on FDA approach, most of the drugs had to be taken off the market or required major label changes due to missed safety issues.” (Kaviraj)
Where is organized skepticism of the brand preached by Phil Plait of the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) on this Amazing Contraindication?
Oh yes, we hear plenty about how JREF has “One Million Dollars” . . amen? . . to throw away on”proof” that homeopathy “works,” but where is their phony offer to Pfizer and other such racketeers to prove their drugs have any use but capitalized murder?
Look, if untested allopathic “medicines,” i.e. poison, of the like dealt by “doctors,” (medical malpractitioners) Pfizer bribed to push them, were subjected to the same standards demanded of homeopathy through traditional use and FDA standards, there would be no allopathic drug industry.
Meanwhile, homeopathic are being use in countries thorughout the world to treat people with such diverse infeections as diabetes, cancer, Dengue fever, malaria, diptheria, influenza, AIDS, malaria . . and, as you can see by the commentary, this drives supporters of the allopathic death industry stark raving nuts. If they could do somthing about it in a court of law to shut down homeoapthy, they would have done it long ago. It hasn’t been for lack of trying. Homeoapthics are FDA regulated, and therefore FDA accepted and protected!
This explains reams of false acusations, years of whining and impotent challenges that have le to nothing in the fruitless attempt to shut down the only curative medicine on the planet.
Choose homeopathy. When you get sick, when you’re not feeling well, avoid the merchants of death, don’t listen to magicians, go to a homeopath, only s/he can save you.
The Others will kill you.
ONE DOSE IS ALL IT TAKES . .
Coincidence? Even homeopathy debunker James “Arsenicum” Randi has taken homeopathic treatment, to save his life from cancer! He is so afraid of dying that he will do anything to stay alive, to avoid that Eternal Fire of Judgement Day, photographed in Finland taking what he reportedly claimed was Arsenicum, which out of 70+ homeopathic remedies is the main one for cancer, especially cancers of the gut.
This is a part of a series of blogs on titled “The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner.” The eponym is suspected of murdering six people and wounding 18 others with a handgun in a suburban Tucson shopping mall in January 2011.
In a previous blog I suggested homeopathic remedies for the victims. In the last blog I began analyzing remedies that fit some of the reported symptoms, and continue to do so in this blog, with much greater difficulty, remedies for the suspected assailant that may have helped to avert the attack.
Of course I’m making assumptions about motive. We’re always making assumptions about motive, we can’t stop making assumptions about motive, even though it is not the primary business of the homeopathic protocol to make assumptions about motive.
The primary business of the protocol is the observation of unusual symptoms for the purpose of matching them with similar symptoms, symptoms that act as indicators to remedies. In this case the suspect presents some very unusual symptoms that demonstrate the process.
BTW, I’ve noticed that my readership has dropped off. It zoomed when I was pillaring PZ Myers. People really aren’t interested in anything more than the spectacle, the blood on the floor, are they?
Part of the mystery, I guess.
In the last blog I began repertorizing the case. In homeopathic parlance repertorization means aggregating symptoms from the materia medica, the references which list the symptoms assoicateded to various remedies. These symptoms are discovered in what are called provings, in which a specific remedy is administered to a group of healthy volunteers who record their mental and physical reactions to it.
What I’ve done then is to scour these reports looking for symptoms that are covered in the approximately 70,000 symptoms listed in various homeopathic references called materia medicas, cross indexed in what are called repertories.
I’ve taken reports of the suspect’s behavior from those who have known him to create the symptom list.
In a traditional homeopathic diagnosis this would be done in an interview with the subject, where his “remedy type” could be better assessed and the subject could state for himself his condition, and where the homeopath could make some direct observations.
Please note, however, that there is an aspect of the interview that is missing from mining the reprots as I have done in this case, and that is that outside observers can see things about the subject that the subject either doesn’t see himself or will not admit. I am also not there to skew the interview with my own observations, that is I cannot lead the interview towards some unintended goal that feeds my bias. As a note to the practitioners, this is an interesting weakness of the homeopathic interview . . the prejudices of the inquisitor. If he thinks the subject is a real bastard, he may just try to dig a bastard remedy out of the patient. It is a challenge to the practitioner’s skill of inquisition to draw out the testimony of his client, like coaxing a shy animal from its hiding place.
The symptoms list, when combined with the indicated remedies, is done to create a matrix of 35 theoretical symptoms and 336 potential remedies . . in this case a long list of remedies from AIDS to Zingiber officinale. Remedies are graded on two qualities, the number of criteria the remedy addresses and the total value for the remedy after they are added up.
As an example, the first remedy listed alphabetically is AIDS. This remedy addresses six criteria out of the 35, 1.) repetition of thoughts, 2.) anxiety of conscience 3.) Insane delusions 4.) sleeplessness, 5.) desire to kill, and 6.) mind to kill.
What this does is to create a reversed repertory for the subject.
Every snake is a killer, and Lachesis mutata is the most prescribed snake remedy. Chappell refers to them as fascinating speakers. (It’s more likely to be radio talk show host Thom Hartmann’s remedy than Loughner’s.) It even probably fits me better than Laughner. Hypnotizers. Loquacious. All mouth. Their words can be poisonous. Words that kill. Lachesis types are usually wise as they are jealous. There is also an introverted Lachesis. They can be timid just a they can be aggressive predators.
The Bushmaster snake, from which Constantine Hering took the venom for the Lachesis remedy, was so fearsome that when the natives brought it to him, they fled before he could open the crate. It puts out more venom than any other known snake.
Hering opened the crate, and before it could strike, clonked it over the head. He then expressed the venom onto milk sugar to capture it for trituration and potentiation. In doing so he placed his thumb on the poison sack to express the venom, and woke up three days later.
Knowing what had happened, he asked his wife what his symptoms had been. “What did I say?” As they would be key observations as to the action of the remedy. From this episode Hering sustained a lifelong injury that crippled the use of his arm. He eventually died suddenly of a heart attack, but not before he ha proved Lachesis and become the guiding light for American homeopathy.
Lachesis is a powerful remedy and we have much thanks to this student of Hahnemann for its discovery and use.
But is Lachesis Loughner’s key remedy? To see my repertorization of Lachesis for Loughner, see the previous blog. He could very well have enough of the qualities of Lachesis to indicate it’s use. For example he appears to have a primary interest in words and language, which is a trait of the remedy.
But before we jump to conclusions, let’s look at some other remedies.
Here is a remedy that is made from the Crack Willow, which coincidentally grows in Arizona in misshapen forms. In it we find seven matching symptoms.
LOUGHNER, Salix fragilis,strong>7,7
Dreams, lucid 1
Mind, anxiety of conscience, 1
Mind, delusions, flying, 1
Mind, delusions, insane, 1
Look fixed at one point staring
Mind, sadness when alone, 1
Like Kali-br. close, but no desire to kill. Numbers are low, profile flat.
LOUGHNER, Arsenicum,strong> 9, 36
Made from Arsenic, the metal. Poison.
Poisoning from alcohol, 6
Mind, alone, 6
Mind, desire to kill, 2
Mind, sadness when alone, 6
Sleep, sleeplessness, 6
He has to murder someone, 1
Desire to kill, 4
Arsenicum has the highest values from nine criteria. Its major feature stems from physical insecurity. Arsenicum could be a good choice, although there are elements of the Ars. personality that doesn’t seem to fit Loughner, such as fastidiousness, taut sinewy body and bony facial features. Arsenicum is a common remedy and doesn’t seem to fit the act of a mass murderer. It lacks the sociopathy we’re looking for.
Dreams, guns 1
Mind, anxiety of conscience 1
Look fixed on one point staring, 1
Sleep, sleeplessness, 1
Mind desire to kill, 1
Cladonia is the only remedy amongst hundreds that notes dreaming of guns. But I’m only guessing about guns. Maybe Loughner dreamt about the tooth fairy. I don’t know. It is only an assumption on my part. However, the fixed stare, sleeplessness, the issue of conscience and the desire to kill are compelling features of this remedy.
Like Stramonium, another classic violence remedy is Anarcardium
Anarcardium 7, 18
Themes: Good versus evil, alienated, hard and cruel
Speaks nonsense, 4
Shamelessness, lewd, 3
Mind, desire to kill 1
Mind, somnambulism, 2
Mind desire to kill, 1
Although Anarcardium types have a murderous aggressiveness, they often lack the confidence to attack. According to Chappell the Anac. temperament comes from being beaten by the father at home. I had a girlfriend once who I pegged as an Anacardium. Interesting girl. There’s usually an element of hard work involved, and then if the child fails, it’s possible they then turn to picking on others and become gang leaders. Anacardium looks like a possibility for Mr. Loughner.
The next remedy has even more compelling possibilities.
Hyoscamus niger, 14, 66
Themes: Erotic psychosis
Disappointed love, 6
Sadness when alone, 0
Frightful fancies, 0
Shameless lewd nudity, 6
Shameless exposes the person, 6
Confused speech, 4
Speaks nonsense, 6
Look fixed on one point staring, 1
Desire to kill, 6
Tries to kill people, 6
Hyoscyamus Niger (A. Gladstone Clarke.)
1. Acute mania ; patient, talkative, quarrelsome, gen. lascivious, exposes the person, etc. ; in the between state, suspicious depression ; fears solitude, poison, plots. Ailments from jealousy, unfortunate love, mental emotions.
2. Delirium during course of acute diseases ; temperature not markedly high ; restless, picks bedclothes, etc. ; beclouded senses ; staring eyes ; dry tongue, etc. ; involuntary urine and faeces ; stands midway between Belladonna and Stramonium, lacking cerebral congestion of former and fierce, raging mania of latter. Delirium tremens.
3. Spasmodic affections without consciousness ; every muscle twitches from eye to toes ; opisthotonos ; convulsions, of children from fright, worms ; of pregnant or parturient women.
4. Nervous coughs ; teasing, dry, spasmodic, sitting up (Drosera) ; night, using voice, eating, drinking.
5. Insomnia in irritable, excitable subjects ; from business difficulties or other nervous excitement ; drowsy yet restless ; in children, with twitchings and startings from fright.
HYOS: “Entire loss of consciousness; sees persons who are not, and have not been present; loss of sight and hearing.” (Nash)
Hyoscamus is the remedy for exhibitionists, and Loughner did something that was noted for an exhibitionist. He took a picture of himself, they say, holding a gun and wearing red underwear.
But even Hyoscamus seems to pale before the next remedy, the remedy of the terrorist.

The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner
by John Benneth, PG Hom. – London (Hons.)
“Learn to keep the ideal of Homeopathy in mind, and think rationally; in order to do that you will have to rid yourselves of a tremendous amount of inheritance.” (Kent)
February 2, 2011
Reports have it he was a trouble maker. He liked to start trouble for the sake of starting trouble.
Here’s how I have analyzed his case. I’ve taken reported symptoms that seem to me to be relevant and recorded the remedies indicated by those symptoms. Of course not being able to directly interview Mr. Loughner I am making some guesses about what I assume some of his symptoms to be. Others are reported. This most likely is not an accuate portrayal of a complex case, but it illustrates how a homeopath works.
First off, read the reports of how erratically and manic Loughner was acting, and then take a look at his mug shot. He’s looking directly into the camera and he’s smiling. Any good homeopath is going to see inappropriate smiling as a tip off to one remedy . . Belladonna is the Deadly Nightshade.
That would be the first administration. But as we go deeper into the case, other things pop up, and Belladonna is not a remedy for repetition, unless you want to put your client in the loony bin. Repeated doses of Belladonna can aggravate, severely. I know of one homeopath who prescribed repeated doses of Belladonna to a patient who he assessed as having a Belladonna constitutional profile. It worked at first an then the man had a relaapse.The guy ended up in a psychiatric ward. The homeopath, an M.D. who often bring their allopathic tendencies with them into homeopathy, ascribed the man’s relapse into madness as a result of failing to take enough Belladonna.
“Belladonna is a remedy that takes hold of the system with great violence. It is especially suitable to plethoric, vigorous individual, and intellectual people brainy people have complaints coming on suddenly, providing they are in a substantial state of health, and are reasonably plethoric and vascular.” (Kent)
This is a rough business to be in. Not for crybabies or little kids, or adults who are riding on nothing more than an education in internal medicine sponsored by Pfizer. You have to really bear down on these this materia medica and know its insides and outs.
Belladonna is not suitable for those numerous recurrent complaints, even though the single attack should be mitigated with Bell. Take any of these attacks; whether they are convulsions or headaches, or congestion of the brain, they are running down and become excitable, take on congestive attacks of the head, go right to bed, and roll the head.You treat those withBelladonna.; the attack is relieved. Take notice, I start out by saying this is only one of a series. You may not know it. This may be the first one.You reduce that one, and when that same exposure comes again, that same attack comes back; but Belladaonna does less this time than it did before. After two or three attacks Bell. will do no more and you are worse off this time than you were before.When it has broken the first one the physician should see that this is one of a series, and that Belladonna is not suitable. Often it is a case that needs Calc., I say often, not always.” (Kent)So after that first dose of Belladonna, 10M, where do we go? The biggest problem in medicine is abandoning the patient after the first treatment. We have to stay with him with an assertive protocol if need be.Sometimes though, one dose of a remedy is enough to trigger a reaction.Let’s look at some more information about Mr. Loughner:
In high school Loughner was “very sweet, caring and kind, had no interest in drugs or alcohol, and had a big interest in music,” his girlfriend said.. “He didn’t start acting differently until after we had been broken up.”
Notice that Belladonna is once again indicated here. The problem that I have with “alcohol poisoning” is that it’s a clinical distinction. It matches a remedy to a presumed cause, not a symptom. That’s not how we homeopaths operate. We look for symptoms to guide us to the remedy, not causes. It’s a major distinction in homeopathic treatment that a lot of people don’t ever get over. So I don’t trust clinical distinctions without collateral support. And I think its an interesting consideration, and it wouldn’t be listed in my rep if it didn’t have some meaning. But never trust a remedy from clinical use alone. If you think clinical shit works, go get some more chemo the next time you get cancer. Then see what your symptoms are. That’s “clinical” thinking.
I assume that he had an obsession with guns and dreamed about them. But this is only a presumption.
Dreams, guns: Clad-r.
Clad-r is Cladonia rangferina, Reindeer moss, from the Artic. It is a plant that survives in a high stress environment. And the proving of Clad-r orbits around a deep sense of insecurity.
Loughner was a reported Cannabis addict who quit after he had failed a military pee test. Anyone who has had a history of Cannabis abuse has a predilection to violence when getting off the drug. This has been a noted feature of cannabis poisoning I found in an old psychiatry text, and its been my confirming observation of it as well. When potheads don’t get their weed they can become crybabies and start acting out. This particular distinction probably flies udner the radar because of its ubiquitous use.
Anybody who has smoked marijuana and is presenting symptoms of Cann. poisoning should be treated for it homeopathically with a high dilute of Cann.- ind, Loughner included.
What compels me to list guns as dreaming is that the gun is perhaps the most featured item in the entertainment world, a form of lucid dreaming. If you’re without a reasonable plot line in your drama, then find a gun and give it to someone who’s insane, and then you have an interesting story. Gunfire is the most prevalent feature in the media, both news and fiction.
I like these one remedy symptoms, especially when they’re unusual remedies, like Clad-r. None of the old repertories list it, and so its indication has not been proven by years of use, but by a more recent preoving.
However, I’m taking liberties here. One indication from one assumed criterion isn’t enough to decide on a remedy unless it’s a highly unusual symptom remedy and there‘s nothing else that important. It doesn’t help unless it repeats. And I’m only assuming that he’s dreaming about guns. Maybe he dreams about lemon pie. I don’t know. This is only theoretical. I’m weighing presumptions against unknown facts that can only be ascertained by talking to the subject. I’m not getting any physical symptoms from this, which are extremely good at locating a remedy, especially unusual physical symptoms and feelings that can only be directly reported by the subject..
So naturally we are interested in other symptoms associated with Clad-r.
Loughner makes an interesting and revealing statement about “conscience dreaming.” According to dream analysis, to dream that your conscience censures you for deceiving some one, denotes that you will be tempted to commit wrong and should be constantly on your guard . .
Loughner writes that his focus was on lucid dreaming.
Dreams, lucid: Salx-f.
Salix fragilis is another unusual remedy. Salx-f is the Crack Willow. It is a gnarled plant, at night taking on the twisted shapes of staggering and bent shapes, in the dark suddenly mistaken for human, or something grotesque.
A friend of his said Loughner thought he could fly.
Mind, delusions, about to commit a crime: Kali-br.
“He had an intense stare, but he usually didn’t stare at other people,” said Kent Slinker, who taught an “Intro to Logic” class attended by Loughner. “He would have a focused stare some place else in the room, and almost as if he was viewing another scene or intensely thinking about something.”
Mind, delirium, look fixed on one point staring: Art-v. Bov. Camph. Canth. CIC. Clad-r. COCC. Cupr. Dream. Herin. Hyos. Ign. Posit. Ran-b. Ruta Salx-f. Squil. STRAM.
As a student at Aztec Middle College in Tucson, Arizona, Loughner was prone to sudden outbursts in class, teachers said. Loughner often spoke out of turn and asked questions unrelated to the class topic, leading Slinker to assume the student had Tourette Syndrome
Loughner spoke excitedly about becoming a writer and told an indecipherable story about an angel talking to a reporter after the end of the world.
Mind, speech, strange: Aether Cham. Gall-ac.
He’d ask “incoherent” questions and make inappropriate comments.
“If I define terrorist then a terrorist is a person who employs terror or terrorism, especially as a political weapon.
“I define terrorist.
“Thus, a terrorist is a person who employs terror or terrorism, especially as a political weapon.
“If you call me a terrorist then the argument to call me a terrorist is Ad hominem.
“You call me a terrorist.
“Thus, the argument to call me a terrorist is Ad hominem.”
“Terror” is used a dozen times here.
Mind, fancies, frightful: Merc. OP. STRAM.
Mind, rage, kill people, tries to: Hep. HYOS. Sec. Stram.
Repertorization is like a horse race. I catch myself to be betting on a particular remedy and then as it draws back and another begins to take over, I still want the old favorite to win.
When first cross indexing one remedy, Kali bromatum raised its head above the others, mainly because it is the only remedy indicated by two unusual but seemingly significant symptoms (delusions of about to commit a crime and delusions of violence), another unusual symptom (somnambulism); indicated also by sleeplessness; the desire to kill, and, as is evident in his writing, repeating not just words, but entire sentences.
That should be enough to give us a rich field of potential remedies to consider.
Subject, remedy, number of criteria (symptoms or clinical diagnoses), value
LOUGHNER, BELLADONNA, 11, 24

Lachesis looks like a good remedy. It meets 11 of the criteria which have a total value of 11. However, motiveless mass murders are extreme, strange and rare acts, apparently motiveless murder sprees, acts of insanity. This one doesn’t seem to even be politically motivated as much as left wing pundits are trying to get everyone to believe (doesn’t excuse the right wing pundits for their hate speech).
Although I must say, Glenn Beck did instruct his viewers to shoot liberals in the head.
It is a are and extravagant pleasure for me to think that one man, such as Loughner, can hold the fate of an entire network in his words. All he has to do is say that on February 16 he was watching Glenn Beck on a broadcast of Fox News’ Fox & Friends when he was instructed repeatedly by Glenn Beck to “shoot him in the head, he’s the bad guy.” ANdhwat are they going to do? Have Sean Hannity apolgize for it?
One commenter on this video, “@BloodRedChorizo wrote “This is at least the sixth time I know of that Glenn Beck has issued a death threat. He’s joked about putting poison in Pelosi’s wine. He straight out said he would kill Michael Moore. Beck told Democrats like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi had used progressive revolutionaries to gain power and that the only way to stop them would be to “shoot them in the head.” He said the only way to stop President Obama would be to “drive a stake through the heart.”
Here is the video clip of Beck instructing Loughner to “shoot them in the head,” them being Liberals like Gabrielle Giffords.
Maybe Hartmann was right. Maybe it was Beck who sent his lookalike over the edge with the subtext, “you’ll be a hero.“
Maybe Hartmann, Mike Malloy and Randi Rhodes are right. If so, then who are the suspected killers within the homeopathic materia medica?
Who would actually carry out Beck’s commands?

“The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner” by John Benneth, PG Hom. – London (Hons.)
The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner blog series
Tuesday, February 1, 2011
Previous post: Hot words, hard healing and talk radio
Author: John Benneth, PG Hom. – London (Hons.)
There are homeopathic treatments that could have been given to the attacker to have prevented this tragedy. Homeopathy offers help on an emotional level, as well as physical. If homeopathic treatment had proceeded the attack, it would not have happened.
The use of homeopathic treatment to successfully prevent the attack is more than just a speculation. It is a fact made known my centuries of observing reactions to our peculiar remedies.
The only way to track homeopathic effectiveness is to compare it with patients receiving allopathic treatment or no treatment at all, and this we have done, noted by some of the world’s finest medical doctors.
This is why we are hated so much. We shame conventional medicine.
The phone rang. I took it out of my pocket and looked at the number. One of my private investigator friends calling from Hawaii.
“Hey Big Haole from town,” I said, “what’s up? Still screwin’ the natives?”
“Shut up, “ he said. “I just read on the Internet that Loughner went to the same synagogue as Giffords. He knew that little girl, too. He also knew the mother. By report they all went there.”
“Loughner marked “Jewish” under his religion on his Myspace page. The Giffords went to the same synagogue as the Loughners”
“Have you been watching Hawaii Five O again?” I said slowly.
“Loughner’s mother is Jewish. Her maiden name is Totman,” he said.
There could be some interesting connections there. But I don’t see their relevance. From a cursory examination, it looks like Jared Lee Loughner was suffering from alcohol poisoning, complicated by some other toxicity, such as lead poisoning . . Or something else . .
Something weird . .
I hung up the phone. The stooges of the allopathic pharmaceutical companies that prey upon those in their most desperate times of need will set up a howl and try to tear and rend me, but I say let them bark. Treating the offender now would be like closing the barn door after the horse is gone. However, closing the door is indeed an acknowledgement of what should have been done, and what can be done in the future to prevent another such horror.
The case of Jared Lee Loughner provides us with an excellent opportunity for homeopathic analysis, as he has exhibited peculiar symptoms, and from these symptoms we can extract a remedy that could have quelled his violent delusions and the actions that were succeeded by them.
It works on anything.
I will get to discussing Loughner’s symptoms soons. But first I would like to offer some suggestions for specialized care of the victims who survived the attack and similar care for the survivors of those who are no longer with us, things that can be done to help the victims in their healing and the survivors in their grief. There are effective remedies within our repertoire for the physical and emotional trauma from such an experience.
I love my country and I love my countrymen. All Americans are in need of help in a time of grief, and I want to help..
This isn’t meant to diagnose any particular case or give anyone medical advice. An advanced practitioner such as myself and a second opinion from another, such as Kaviraj, should be consulted directly with the assistance of attending medical doctors.
For the confusion that comes from an injury to the head I suggest that the attending physicians investigate Natrum sulphuricum in the lowest doses, starting at 6c and ascending to higher ones, 12c, 30c, 200c and then 10m, ceasing immediately once any progress along the way has been noted; this is a basic rule in homeopathy, that once a change has been noted, once there has been improvement or an aggravation of symptoms, stop administering the homeopathic remedy.
For stupefaction resulting from the head injury there are six remedies that doctors should consider: Arn. Cic. Con. Hell. Puls. Rhus-t.
The selection of these should be according to where the gunshot was received and how the patient is reacting to it.
Stramonium for the terror, Staphysagria for the suppressed rage from the assault.
But the two remedies that stand out above all others for Gabrielle Giffords are Arnica montana for the physical injury and pain, and Natrum Sulphuricum for the confusion and brain injury.
“Arnica may be said to be the traumatic par excellence. Trauma in all its varieties and effects, recent and remote, is met by Arnica as by no other single drug, and the provings bring out the appropriateness of the remedy in the symptoms it causes.” (Clarke). “Convulsions from injuries of the head.” (Kent).
For the grief, Ignatia Amara, any potency will do. Begin with the lowest first when administering more than one potency.
Aurum Metallicum for very severe cases of grief.
Aconite for acute shock of grief and loss.
Baptisia for exhaustion and all is wanted is sleep
Ignatia is the great grief remedy especially for those who are oversensitive, easily agitated when opposed and depressed. Sighs, expresses regrets with tears. Sadness is often hidden, reluctant to share or discuss pain, easily moved to laughter before becoming sad again.
Naja for acute sadness to the point of suicide, wants to die, palpitations, suffering is too much to take, tormented by inability to bring back the departed, are immediately excited by being held back or checked.
Natrum muriaticum for those who are tearful, depressed and worsened by consolation.
Natrum Sulphate for inability to cconcentrate, for those who don’t like to be spoken to and want to be left in solitude, depression is worse on waking, better towards evening..
Please note and pass on.
Tucson has good homeopaths in her stay. Dr. Iris Bell, MD, at the University of Arizona in Tucson is one. Dr. Bell has provided us with two of the world’s best physical studies supporting homeopathy and the use of its remarkable albeit controversial remedies.

Previous blog: The Homeopathic Repertorization of Jared Lee Loughner- Intro
by John Benneth, PG Hom. – London (Hons.)
Don’t tell me you have ways of treating this within the allopathic model. You don’t. All you have in that allopathy jury rigging is no better than bubblegum, glue and duct tape.
10:10 AM on January 8, 2011 U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, a Democrat representing Arizona’s 8th congressional district and 18 others were hit by gunfire in a sudden attack by a lone gunman in a Tucson area mall.
The attack occurred while she was holding an open meeting called “Congress on Your Corner” with members of her constituency at the Safeway supermarket parking lot in La Toscana Village, a shopping mall in Casa Adobes, Arizona, part of the Tucson metro area.
Giffords had set up a table outside the store which 20 to 30 people gathered around when 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner allegedly drew a 9mm Glock model 19 semi-automatic pistol with a 33-round magazine and shot Giffords in the temple of her head at point-blank range.
Loughner then reportedly turned on the stunned crowd and opened fire, shooting randomly, killing six and wounding eighteen others. Among the dead were John Roll, Arizona’s Chief Judge of the United States District Court, a nine-year old little girl and one of Rep. Gifford’s staff.
The first question of a stunned nation was why.
“Homeopathy is always helpful in schizophrenia; in certain states it is curative.”
Trevor Smith, The Homeopathic Treatment of Emotional Illnesses
Wednesday, January 12th, 2010 President Barack Obama gave a standing ovations speech at the Tucson memorial for the victims, where he announced that Gabrielle Giffords had opened her eyes for the first time since the shooting.
He said, “We must examine all the facts behind this tragedy. We should be willing to challenge old assumptions in order to lessen the prospects of violence in the future.”
The morning of the 13th I was lying in bed listening to liberal talk show radio host Thom Hartmann squabble a case for “stochastic terrorism.” Stochastic terrorism is using mass communications to stir up random lone wolves to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable.
Hillary Clinton wasn’t alone in saying heated rhetoric and radical ideology inspired the shooter. Assistant secretary of state for public affairs P.J. Crowley referred to the tragedy in a speech about the important role media plays in democracy, implying that Loughner’s actions came out of “poor public discourse.”
I picked up the phone and called the show. I told the screener that I wanted to take Hartmann on regarding his claim that right-wing rhetoric motivated suspected Tucson shooter Jared Lee Loughner .
My name is John Benneth. I’m a homeopath.
I’ve been repertorizing Loughner’s case. In homeopathy repertorization is the use of a lexicon of symptoms and their corresponding remedies to select a proper remedy based on detailed observations of the patient’s symptoms and medical history.
I have tracked Loughner’s symptoms as criteria to profile him for a homeopathic remedy. The purpose of this is to give myself some insight into homeopathic remedies for whatever motivated the event. If I can find a remedy for Loughner, it will help me in finding remedies for other would-be mass murderers, and make a case for their trial and use.
I waited as Hartmann played commercials and took back-patting call after smarmy suck-up call . . agreeing with him, telling him what a genius he is, and played ,more commercials. Hartmann responded by ‘shouting down’ callers. He did a couple of interviews, cut short a handicapped woman asking for help, played some more commercials, accused the right wing of Mankind’s destruction, squired off some rants, played goose stepping bumper music, took a cigarette break, played more commercials, attacked Bush, hung up on some more callers, interrupted everyone with personal anecdotes, took a call from a gushing admirer, screamed at somebody to get to the point, played a commercial, read the news, gave an endorsement for Tick and Flea Spray, talked over everyone like a herd of bison, played hokey bumper music, told some more lies, did a commercial for rip off gold and then, finally, after I waiting a full hour ,when I was almost on my feet, Thom Hartmann took my call.
“John in Portland . .” he said.
I turned the radio down and got out of bed.
“I have been looking for it but I find no evidence whatsoever right wing rhetoric motivated Loughner, ” I said.
“Can you name one liberal who was ever motivated to shoot a conservative politician?” he said, cutting me off. I couldn’t get an answer out in time before he had interrupted me again.
Here is what such a question, if answered, would have revealed.
John Wilkes Booth killed Republican president Lincoln; Charles Guiteau killed Republican president Garfield
Leon Frank Czolgosz killed Republican president McKinley
John Schrank shot Republican President Teddy Roosevelt; Samuel Byck tried to kill Republican president Nixon by crashing a commercial airliner into the White House
Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme tried to shoot Republican President Gerald Ford at point blank range with a Colt .45
Sara Jane Moore fired a revolver at Ford from 40 feet away
John Hinckley, Jr. tried to impress actress Jodie Foster by shooting Republican President Reagan and three others with exploding bullets
Sixteen men, who in the suspected employ of Saddam Hussein, smuggled a car bomb into Kuwait to kill Republican President Geo. H.W. Bush (41)
Robert Pickett fired shots at the White House while Republican President Geo W. Bush (43) was its occupant
On the morning of September 11th, 2001 (9/11) a van reportedly full of Arab looking men arrived at a resort where Bush 43 was staying saying had a “poolside” interview with him.
There have been more assassinations and assassination attempts, both real and suspected, on Republican presidents than Democratic. Out of the four US Presidents assassinated, only one was a Democrat, John F. Kennedy.
Out of 16 assassination attempts on 11 Presidents, 10 were on 6 Republicans. Teddy Roosevelt took a bullet, but insisted finishing his speech, and then refused to go to the hospital, and never did have it removed. Democrat Andrew Jackson beat his would be assassin down with his cane after the attacker’s two flintlock pistols misfired.
Assassinations and assassination attempts on members of Congress are even more rare. The alleged attack on Representative Giffords was only the fifth violent attack on a sitting member of Congress in US history. Giffords is only one of nine US legislators who have been the victim of such violence while representing constituents. Of the two Congressmen who died during violence, only one, Representative Leo Ryan, died as a result of an ambush.
The only other Congressman to die from intended violence was Jonathan Cilley of Maine, who died as a result of gunshot wounds suffered during a duel.
What makes the Giffords attack even more rare is that she is now the only Congress-woman ever attacked while in office.
The attack by Loughner on Giffords then is unique. Not necessarily in motive. Although Loughner’s writing is swashed with political rhetoric, it has the tone of what could be construed as insanity.
Court filings revealed handwritten notes apparently by Loughner saying he planned to assassinate Giffords. As of this writing there is not reported motive for the shooting. Loughner has remained silent.
Loughner previously met Giffords at a “Congress on your Corner” event in a Tucson mall on August 25, 2007, where he asked the congresswoman, “How do you know words mean anything?”
A voice message from Loughner to a friend just before the shooting stated that Loughner had a grudge against Giffords for failing to sufficiently answer a question sufficiently. What that question was is unknown at this time.
The first responses, like Hartmann’s, were that the media had made him do it. Clarence Dupnik of Pima County, Arizona implied a connection between hate speech and violence. He said, “When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous.” Dupnik finally said, that he had no evidence that the attack was a result of anything Loughner read or may have heard.
It sounded like Hartmann slapped the desk. “Okay, but can you name one liberal talk show host who engages in hate speech?”
“Mike Malloy! He’s always talking about how much he hates Republicans, heterosexual white men, Christians, Bush. And Randi Rhodes talks about Barbara Bush’s in a way that is pretty . . ”
Hartmann let out a moan and the phone went dead. Mike Malloy, for the record, was the one who coined the phrase “the Bush crime family.”
I turned the radio back up. Hartmann was blathering on about something Loughner had written about not liking the government.
I turned the radio off.
The only good thing I can say about Hartmann is that his show is ten times better than any right-wing radio talk show. At least it is not ALL lies. If Hartmann wasn’t such a megalomaniac I might well rank him the country’s second best political radio talk show host, right behind Randi Rhodes, a spot currently filled by the sardonic wit of Alan Colmes.
So much for hot talk and the facts. As an experienced and resourceful practitioner of homeopathy, I would like to help. I can examine the facts with a rare and peculiar eye that is distinctive of my doctrine. Getting this across through pseudo pharmaceutical mind control isn’t easy, even with liberals. Being that this is the world’s most read homeopathy blog, and I am America’s most prominent homeopath, bearing at this time the world’s only known honorary degree in homeopathy, it is my responsibility to comment on how homeopathy would treat such a situation as the Arizona tragedy.
I put my pants on, went downstairs and fixed myself a cup of the enemy, black espresso coffee made from freshly roasted Arabica coffee beans..
I gritted my teeth and took a sip.

Risks make unnecessary vaccination statutory crime
A professor known for his relentless bashing of homeopathic and complementary medicine has recently made another useless jab in apparent favor of allopathic (non homeopathic) immunization against diseases that other authorities say are not only unnecessary, but criminal.
Edzard Ernst, Professor of Complementary Medcine at the Unviesity of Exeter in Great Britain says, “A US team has just published the largest ever study of CAM providers’ attitudes towards vaccination . They found that children receiving care from naturopathic physicians or chiropractors, during their first two years of life, were significantly less likely than their counterparts to receive the recommended immunizations against measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox or Haemophilus influenzae type b. Later in life, such children were more likely to suffer from a vaccine-preventable disease.”
The soemhwat lukewarm statement appeared after Ernst was challenged here to provide one study that proves homeopathy is a placebo.
So far no study, test or trial has materialized.
Of course, when they support allopathy, the old criminal’s references are supposed to be free of any of the criticism he levels on the studies that support homeopathy, but as usual, the study Ernst refers to is unavailable at this time online.
However, Kaviraj dug something up on the Child Health Safety blog here on WordPress that throws a wet blanket on Ernst’s sneering report: Ernst’s vaccinations are unnecessary, ineffective, and criminal!
“The measles mortality graphs . . contradict the claims of Government health officials that vaccines have saved millions of lives. It is an unscientific claim which the data show is untrue. Here you will also learn why vaccinations like mumps and rubella for children are medically unethical and can expose medical professionals to liability for criminal proceedings and civil damages for administering them. http://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/graphs/
Criminal proceedings? Against allopathic doctors? For mumps andmeasle needle jabs?
The problem faced by modern medicine is a serious double-bind. Homeopathy does not have the financial incentives behind it that allopathy does, but allopathy, because of this very same thing, has become criminalized. I am not using that term vaguely, either. They’ve been convicted in the US under the RICO organized crime act. The pharmacetuical industry is a criminal enterprises that has been convicted of mass murder in a catch and release program by the U.S. government.
In the UK, providing treatment to a patient that is not clinically needed, and misleading patients as to the clinical need for a treatment so as to vitiate their consent, can mean the administration of the treatment is a criminal offence: Appleton v Garrett (1995) 34 BMLR 23.
According to The British Medical Association (‘BMA’) and The Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (RPSGB) mumps vaccination is clinically inappropriate:-
“Since mumps and its complications are very rarely serious there is little indication for the routine use of mumps vaccine”: British National Formulary (‘BNF’) 1985 and 1986 Freedom of Information documents show the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and Ministry of Defence agreed as early as 1974 that:-
“there was no need to introduce routine vaccination against mumps” because complications from the disease were rare” JCVI minutes 11 Dec 1974.Doctors and nurses who fail to tell parents mumps vaccine in MMR is clinically unnecessary, of the exact risks of adverse reactions and then give the vaccine, appear to be behaving unethically, potentially in contravention of the criminal law and liable to civil proceedings for damages. They are also unable to explain the exact risks because data on adverse reactions are not being collected properly or at all, and there is evidence showing adverse reaction data are suppressed.
“A consequence is that giving MMR vaccine to children cannot be justified on clinical or ethical grounds. And as there is insufficient clinical benefit to children to introduce mass mumps vaccination, it cannot be justified as a general public health measure.”
The same reason that makes allopathy a criminal enterprise is the same reasons it is allowed to survive, which is because it is such a huge money making business, and that is because it is a monopoly of fear.
Homeopathy threatens that monopoly of fear with a truly doctored centered regime that makes use of a relatively simple, effective and safe medicine that can treat anyone with any disease.
The moment they admit the pre-clinicals for homeopathy, the tests that show the action of homeopathic remedies on non human subjects like plants and animals, allopathy not only loses it grip on the public throat, it doesn’t just fall to the place where it belongs, as a third rate medical treatment, its practitioners are in danger of being criminalized for using it. In the light of superior homeoapthic medicine it becomes clear that oppositional medicine is a dangerous treatment. It continues as a legal treatment because without an apparent alternative, allopathy appears necessary and vital to human health.
Ask for homeopathic treatment to prevent cancer and diabetes.
Here we go again. Journal arguer MADGAV writes about “Evidence Check,” the Parliament hearing held last year in the UK, condemning homeopathy:
“As the Science and Technology Committee concluded:
‘In our view, the systematic reviews and meta-analyses conclusively demonstrate that homeopathic products perform no better than placebos.’
“In response to the various submissions from homeopathic organisations they added:
‘We regret that advocates of homeopathy, including in their submissions to our inquiry, choose to rely on, and promulgate, selective approaches to the treatment of the evidence base as this risks confusing or misleading the public, the media and policymakers.’
Okay, that’s definitely a gotcha for the opponents of homeopathy, if it has any creidb ility to it. So let’s take a closer look at it.
Here is the review of the House of Commons report by Earl Baldwin of Bewdsley, of the Upper House , entitled, “Observations on the report Evidence Check 2: Homeopathy by the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee,” dated February 2010.
Lord Bewdley writes,
“2.3. The exaggeration by the Committee of Shang’s conclusions is worrying. It is difficult to see how a weakly supported positive effect, for which one explanation (possibly well-founded) is a placebo effect, can be translated into a conclusive demonstration of this effect, with a “devastatingly” negative finding. No such firm claims can be found in Shang, who writes of finding “no strong” evidence, or “little” evidence, and who ends his paper with cautions about methodology and about the difficulty of detecting bias in studies, as well as the role of possible “context effects” in homeopathy.
“2.4. The Committee’s overstatement is not helped by claiming Government support for its interpretation in paragraph 70, based on the Minister’s concession of no “credible” evidence that homeopathy works beyond placebo. If he meant persuasive evidence – and his guarded support for further research  supports this – that shows a confusion by the Committee between absence of evidence and evidence of absence. If however he was saying that all evidence was negative, this as Prof. Harper correctly stated  runs counter to the
message from most reviews up to and including Shang, which is one of primary studies of insufficient quantity, rigour, size, homogeneity and power to give clear-cut answers.”
In addition, a review of the literature in the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education concurs with the Bewdley review. This review says Shang “has been highly criticized for being methodologically flawed on many levels. Of particular concern, the researchers eliminated 102 of 110 homeopathic trials and based their conclusions on only the 8 largest high-quality trials without clearly identifying the criteria by which these trials were selected or the identity of these trials. Odds ratios calculated before the exclusions (on all 110 trials) do not support their ultimate conclusion that homeopathic interventions are no better than placebo.

Where Does Homeopathy Fit in Pharmacy Practice?
Teela Johnson, HonBSc and Heather Boon, BScPhm, PhD
University of Toronto, Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy
Bewdley, supported by Johnson, raises a serious question about the bias in the House of Commons assessment that can be easily seen in unbiased reviews by truly critical reviewers of homeopathy, such as the pharmacists and Bewdley of the Upper House. Why did the Committee rely on a meta analysis known to be spurious? That’s a huge admission. Is that why Evan Harris, who led the the hatchet job, lost his seat in Parliament?
What I, John Benneth, am presenting here is leading to a criminal indictment of Harris, Goldacre, Ernst and a host of others, to be presented in my next blog.
Read on. It gets worse for the homeopathy haters. Bewdley goes on to say,
“5.2. It is not easy to see why a journalist doctor (Ben Goldacre) was invited to appear in preference to some other non-representative contributors to the inquiry. The written submission by Dr. Goldacre [Ev. 8] was notably short on supporting evidence, but contained unqualified statements on the ineffectiveness of homeopathy, forcefully expressed (“extreme quackery” was mentioned). By contrast, the submission by the Complementary Medicine Research Group from the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York presented a wellargued summary with 68 references [Ev. 143]. In this appears the statement
“To date there are eight systematic reviews that provide evidence that the effects of homeopathy are beyond placebo when used as a treatment for [five childhood conditions]”. This claim from a mainstream academic centre, rated joint first nationally for health services research in the latest Research Assessment Exercise, stands in stark contradiction to Prof. Ernst’s referenced claims, noted above, and to Dr. Goldacre’s unreferenced statements. It would have been illuminating if the Committee had probed the Group about this, face to face as a witness, and attempted some resolution before agreeing in unequivocal terms with the two witnesses who were invited to appear and were quoted favourably.
“ The Committee criticised the supporters of homeopathy for their ‘selective approaches’ to evidence . They could fairly be accused of the same.
Unfortunately they did not (presumably) have the scope to solicit the views of Dr. Linde from Germany, which would have differed from those of Prof. Ernst with regard to the evidence.”
Wow! This guy Bewdley paints the anti-homeopathy clowns out to be a pack of sleazy scheming liars.
Of the evidence the Committee reviewed, Bewdsley says in 7.1,
“The Committee however has been less than rigorous in its approach to this evidence. Its choice of witnesses favoured a medical media opponent of homeopathy over a research centre of excellence. It was unwise to rely heavily on the interpretations of one professor of CAM (Edzard Ernst), some of whose statements are unsound or in conflict with other statements of his, and who is not without his critics in the worlds of research and academia whose views were given less prominence. The 2005 review by Shang et al has been inaccurately represented as ruling out specific effects of homeopathy, in a summary statement by the Committee that goes beyond present evidence.
“The Committee’s own statements show confusion between unconvincing evidence of a specific effect and disproof of it. The true risk profile of homeopathy, compared with conventional treatment, was not considered.
“7.2. These limitations make the Committee’s report an unreliable source of evidence about homeopathy. The jury must still be regarded as out on its efficacy and risk/ benefit ratio. Whether more research should be done, and of what kind, is another question. But there can be no ethical objection to it since the principal questions.”
You guys are getting fined billions for the poison you’re peddling,, and you’re busy trying to make some other form of legal medicine look bad? What’s wrong with you? Are they paying you to post the crap you’re writing or are you just naturally stupid?
Madgav, why are you doing this? This is a serious matter. If you really believe in what you’re digging up and writing about, then why aren’t you using your real name in presenting it?
Is “Madgav” what he appears to be, a shill for allopathy?
The oppostion to homeopathy is not about belief. It’s about getting paid.
If “Madgav” is not as stupid as he’s making him or herself out to be, then how does he reconcile these two groups, one a recognized legal doctrine supported by tradition and law, and the other representing opposing interests that rely solely on known fabrications? Real medicine vs. the Evil Empire of racketeers, merchants of death.

They say Heaven conspires for those who know what they want. Sometimes there are inspirations that seem to dart from Heaven, come out of nowhere. They are coincidences with impossible denominators, as if to lead us on this dark and misty road and keep trudging on past the warm and lighted inn.
This last evening I experienced one.
An amazing coincidence. Something to spur me on. Whether or not it’s relevant to my efforts is hard to know.
You see, I’ve been getting criticisms over my approach to the subject of homeopathy. Some people have suggested that I’ve been unprofessional, in a somewhat mean and derogatory way, in response to my critics.
And sometimes, in reflection, I feel compelled to agree. I should be kinder. I should be nicer. It’s not like me to tell a man he’s so stupid he must think a fire engine is something that automatically starts fires, tiptoes in the drugstore so as to not wake up the sleeping pills. I’m the type of man who pets cats, drives around squirrels and is nice to telephone solicitors.
I try to be friendly and smile. But in the case of homeopathy, I feel I am faced with sinister forces. Evil. The bane of humanity.
Now this may seem a little paranoid to those unwilling to take the time to verify it, but it’s true.
Well, the ground work for this miracle started out earlier today when one of the people in our online homeopathy discussion group posted a list of salaries of the major drug company chief executive officers (CEOs). I took an immediate interest in it because of late I’ve been wondering who the CEO of Pfizer is, the world’s largest manufacturer of allopathic drugs.
Allopathy is the form of medicine that produces effects different from or opposite of those produced by the disease. Allo means variation, departure from the normal, or reversal, exactly what you experience when you go to an allopath.
I live my life to be with you. No one can do the things you do. Anything you want, you got it. Anything you need, you got it. Anything at all, you got it.
Roy Orbison, You Got It Writers: Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.
Hahnemann, who was first trained as an allopathic physician, developed homeopathy as a response to the compulsive abuse and failure of allopathy.
I wonder, how many people does allopathy murder a year? Look at their drugs, their failures, their lawsuits. Poisons happily advertised on TV that produce symptoms worse than the disease. TV ads one year that recommend you ask your doctor (he’s been bribed) and the subject of massive lawsuits and fines the next. Then it happens all over again.
Ladies and gentlemen, this has been going on centuries. And they call homeopaths quacks? Time to get up on your hindlegs and stop these criminals!
The term iatrogenesis means brought forth by a healer, from the Greekἰατρός (iatros, “healer”) and γένεσις (genesis, “origin”); as such, in its earlier forms, it could refer to good or bad effects.
Since at least the time of Hippocrates, people have recognized the potentially damaging effects of medical intervention. “First do no harm” (primum non nocere) is a primary Hippocratic mandate in modern medical ethics. Iatrogenic illness or death caused purposefully or by avoidable error or negligence on the healer’s part became a punishable offense in many civilizations.iatrogenesis , Wikipedia
Addictive drugs, killer drugs. First one’s always free.
Statini drugs, Vioxx, Avandia, anti-diabetic drugs, Yaz, Yasmin birth control, thalidomide babies, bloodletting, unnecessary surgery, overdoses, mercury poisoning, crippling vaccines, oxycontin, opium, intellectual property rights, patent medicine, molecular synthesis, opiates, Fetanyl, the list goes on and on. Recently Pfizer was fined billions of dollars for racketeering. RICO. GlaxoSmithKline was fined hundreds of millions for violations. It’s amazing. But the public puts up with it, because black propaganda campaigns have convinced them that there is no alternative.
“Homeopathy?” they say, “Come now, it’s just plain water, placebos, ineffective” . . the literature of course proves all of that false. Homeopathy poses a greater threat to the allopathic drug industry than do government fines and regulation, not just because it works, but because it works better. Government simply runs a catch and release program for allopaths, on the basis that that’s all we got for a desperately ill clientele.
It’s what I’ve characterized in my columns of the past week as the “Evil Empire,”
It’s what I write about. The charges may sound excessive, but they’re true. And, as you will see, how quickly they fruit. So I pick out a few targets to expose. Looming on the list was the CEO of Pfizer, the world’s sickest, deadliest corporation. There are few that would outrank it in the evil index. I just hadn’t gotten around to finding out who he is . . or was, as the case may be.
According to the list, the CEO of Pfizer is an attorney by the name of Jeff Kindler.
I eventually got off my mental hind end and looked him up.
According to Wikipedia, “Jeffrey Kindler graduated summa cum laude from Tufts University and magna cum laude from Harvard in 1980. He clerked for Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan Jr. and worked at the law firm Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C. He was Vice President and Senior Counselor for General Electric Co. Executive Vice President of Corporate Relations and General Counsel for McDonald’s, President of Partner Brands which owns Boston Market and Chipotle Mexican Grill, a sandwich lawyer until 2002, when he moved to Pfizer to serve as General Counsel. Wikipedia says, Kindler’s role at Pfizer quickly took on critical importance as the company faced a vast array of generic assaults on its patents, most notably on the $12 billion drug Lipitor, and the rising threat of counterfeit drugs.”
“The selection of a lawyer to the top post at the world’s largest and most venerable pharmaceutical company highlighted the growing dominance of legal issues in the pharmaceutical industry.”
His salary is . . or was . . $12.6 million dollars. This may seem like a lot, but it is only a third of the $33.4 million Miles White, CEO of Abbott made, and Abbott isn’t being sued for a billion.
I guess you get what you’re paid for.
Here’s the list of the top 14 drug company CEO salaries from which Jeff‘s salary is taken. It appears to be outdated. Sidney Taurel (9) for instance, has been replaced by John Leichleiter with a salary of only a paltry $1.48 million, although I might have missed a digit:
Miles White – Abbott – $33.4M
2. Fred Hassan – Schering-Plough – $30.1M
3. Bill Weldon – Johnson & Johnson – $25.1M
4. Bob Essner – Wyeth – $24.1M
5. Robert Parkinson – Baxter – $17.6M
6. Daniel Vasella – Novartis – $15.5M
7. Richard Clark – Merck – $14.5M
8. Frank Baldino – Cephalon – $13.5M
9. Sidney Taurel – Eli Lilly – $13M
10. Jeff Kindler – Pfizer – $12.6M
11. Jim Cornelius – Bristol-Myers Squibb – $11.3
12. Franz Humer – Roche – $11.1M
13. Robert Coury – Mylan – $8.5M
14. Jean-Pierre Garnier – GlaxoSmithKline – $6M
Tonight, lying in bed, I dwelled on this. Allopathy is the form of medicine that homeopathy opposes. The word was coined by Hahnemann, a fluent wordsmith in 10 languages, to describe mainstream medicine.
And these men who oppose us are the extraordinarily wealthy cream of the allopathic crop of drug manufacturers.
An awesome array.
However, there is a huge difference that I see between them and me. I don‘t make money. I‘m just a homeless guy who got lucky, through another wild coincidence . .
. . okay okay, I‘ll get to the one that prompted this piece in a moment.
So, I’m lying in bed, thinking about all of this, and about Jeff Kindler in particular. Unlocked, Golum might wander, “Whereas I may be poor as a church mouse, I have a couple of things he doesn’t have, and that is what sets us miles apart. I possess something that I have a real passion for. I have been let in on the inner circle of a great discovery. The kind of thing they hand out Nobels like door prizes for.”
Yes, if Golum lived, dealt the same hand, he might say,
“I am hated by the people who would be expected to hate me. I for being right, they for being wrong. I am probably one of only a handful of people who understands the mechanical, molecular basis for the action of the homeopathic remedy. I possess a knowledge of a chemistry that is far more advanced than Kindler’s. So in that way I am far more wealthy than he is. What he claims in riches time and thieves will take away, where mine is in Heaven’s store. I am in a Kingdom far above his Evil Empire. For his own sake and everyone else’s who is in his wake, I wish he’d quit, I wish he’dquit defending the indefensible.”
He relieved me of saying it, so I presumptuously turned the radio on and continued to think as the news man called out his rip ‘n’ read for the day’s end. And I thought, this man Kindler, how many lives might be laid at his feet? A civil war’s worth? How much suffering and death is he responsible for? Could we measure it in holocausts? Or will we have to pay for it in Apocalypses and get change back in Cataclysms? Would I want that in trade of a wealth that can be taken away in a moment?
What kind of reputation is that?
What would it take to stop this man, to get him to step down? As I am thinking this the newsman announces that Jeffery Kindler has resigned as CEO of Pfizer. The CEO of the world’s largest drug company has stepped down to “recharge his batteries.”
Jeff Kindler . . quit? Just as I , for the sake of his Soul, was hoping he would?
Now what are the chances of that? That I would be thinking of someone so distant from the common thrall, thinking of his demise, that at that following instant, hear about it on the radio? Is that telepathy, or . .
