THE DELUSION OF HOMEOPATHY

Since my last posting August 7th, 2012, a lot has happened in the world of homeopathy, some things quite personal to me, but during all that time I’ve kept my lip buttoned. I vowed not to say a word until I was prepared to speak more on the most important thing I know, the physics of homeopathy, what makes the homeopathic remedy tick.

SUBCRIBE: You don’t want to miss the next installment

In September 2012 I was drawn into an argument on the Homeopathic World Community website with my old friend, the world’s most beloved homeopath, Vaikunthanath das Kaviraj. The argument  with Kaviraji was over the physics of homeopathy and then, after it was over, I suffered a deeply frozen shoulder of an arctic polar grade, which I finally shrugged off with a dose of Lycopodium, a dose that worked almost instantaneously.

While Australian health authorities were trying to stifle information about homeopathic prophylaxis (dynamic immunization) Canada was licensing it. Homeopathy antagonists Edzard Ernst and David Colquhoun fell from grace for the flaming indiscretions brought on by the usual hypocrisy of localized skepticism; then in March Kaviraji passed away.  And then efforts to fluoridate Portland Oregon ’s pristine alpine reservoir failed . . again.

But through all of it, with all I had to say, I didn’t write a word and kept the blog moribund, with the exception of an occasional response to a comment, like last Saturday’s on a blog I wrote two years ago about curing homosexuality . . always good for a comment or two.

For the demise of our antagonists I felt no satisfaction, it was inevitable, as is the continued use of homeopathics in stopping epidemics, curing cancer and homosexuality, because homeopathy is the basis for all immunizations and cures of illness, physical and otherwise, always has been and always will be until some new principle of immunity and cure is found.

The only problems is seeing it . . and learning how to cut the dose.

And I felt no real grief when Kaviraj passed away. I miss his commiseration, but after the argument a kind of emotional numbness set in. It was inevitable. He shouldn’t have died.  I can’t even say I felt I was disappointed, when in fact I’d be mad at him if it wasn’t for my pet ego . But I didn’t post a word about it since my argument with him because I did not want to say anything more on this blog until I was able, as I am now, to present to the world the crystalliferous physics of homeopathy, the only thing missing from the case for what is the world’s only real medicine.

I know this all sounds carelessly oversold and dangerous to say, I’ve heard it repeated that its bunk again and again over the years, but the truth is behind it. I’ve learned to choose my words carefully before I put them together carelessly. I don’t like to say anything I can’t back up with a credible reference.  MD Anderson, the top cancer clinic in the U.S., collaborating with the Banerjis, the top cancer clinic in India, discovered that OTC homeopathics can cure cancer, and dozens of homosexuals have shed their curse using the practice of similitude to keep their heads from rolling in Arab streets.

All the vituperative and putative perceptions of homeopathy have been, are and always will be delusions, with the exception of one, that there has been no known physico-chemical explanation for it . .  perhaps. 

That homeopathy is fraud is a delusion; that it doesn’t work is a delusion; that it isn’t accepted by the medical profession is a delusion; that there are no double blind tests for it is a delusion; that there are no known corollaries for “like cures like” is a delusion; that water doesn’t have a memory is a delusion;  that it isn’t peer reviewed is a delusion; that it isn’t the soul of immunology is a delusion;  that it isn’t the only cure for epidemics is a delusion; that the vaccine is not homeopathic is a delusion; that mainstream so-called medicine, i.e. allopathy, is medicine is a delusion.

And with the word “perhaps” I equivocate that there is no known physico chemical explanation for homeopathy, not because there is doubt in my mind about the explanation, but because there is doubt in my mind whether or not I am the only one who knows it.

It’s time the world understands what homeopathy really is.

Yes, I know what they will say, that once Benneth takes Ruta for his eyestrain he’ll find his remedy is Platina.

LOL!

WORLD’s FASTEST GROWING MEDICINE

WINS OVER STANDARD MEDICINE IN EPIDEMICS, SERIOUS DISEASES

Facts and figures show homeopathy world’s fastest growing medicine

A reader writes:

John – do you have a citation for homeopathy being the world’s fastest-growing medicine? I’d love to use it but need the source.
 Karen Wehrstein

Dear Karen,

Yes, the Indian Chamber of Commerce estimates that homeopathy is growing at 30% a year.

The Hindustani Times reports that according to the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), the Indian homeopathy treatment market is likely to grow 30% annually and reach a size of Rs. 4,600 crore (46 billion)  as the number of users is growing fast within and outside the country.

The global homeopathy market is estimated at Rs. 26,300 crore with France being the largest contributor, according to the study by ASSOCHAM. Last year, the domestic homeopathy market size was about Rs. 2,758 crore.

A crore is a unit in the Indian numbering system equal to ten million (10,000,000.) They report that the global growth of homeopathy is approximately 25%.

In dollars the world homoeopathy market according to ASSOCHAM is $5.35 billion. It is not known if this includes services, is for the sale of remedies items alone, or includes ancillary products.  But if we multiply $5.35 billion by 1.25% annually, without adjustment for inflation, we get a 1.1 trillion dollar global market by 2035, which means it will have surpassed current allopathic medicine.

According to a US study conducted in 2005 by Marketresearch.com, $230 million were made in sales of homeopathic products in 2005. Although it is difficult to dig up concrete stats on the universal sales of natural and homeopathic related products, more recent data from the National Center for Homeopathy (U.S.) shows sales also increasing by as much as 20-30% in 2006, as compared to the year before, concordant with Indian figures.

25 – 30% ANNUAL GROWTH WORLDWIDE

These are only projected monetary figures, and homeopathy is renowned as an inexpensive curative medicine, not for how much money it makes, but for how much it can save through its infinitesimal posology, a cost that is as infinitesimally small compared to allopathy in the treatment of serious diseases, like cancer, malaria and AIDS.

When I first began exploring the literature on pre-clinical testing in 2000 I discovered it to be virtually unknown by homeopaths. After receiving a stack of pre-clinical studies from the Deutches Homeopathic Union and discovering Stephenson’s pre-clincal bibliography of  the 20th century, I assembled a list of 52 of them and was the first to post such data on the Internet in 2000 on marius.net, listed as the first entry of The John Benneth Journal as “Proof for Homeopathy.”

Google now reports 5.4 million “results” when “homeopathy” is entered into their search engine. PUBMED, the US government archives online, lists over 4400 articles referencing homeopathy on its website.

The National Center for Homeopathy in March of 2011 started a grass roots movement to encourage  users of homeopathy to make Youtube videos talking about successes in using homeopathy, called “Homeopathy Works for Me.”  As of this writing there were over a hundred videos on Youtube with the “homeopathy works for me” tag that pop up under that search command on the Youtube website. It is only a fraction of the total videos about homeopathy on Youtube. Search results on the keyword “homeopathy” on Youtube brings 5,570 video results.

If Einstein is to be believed when he said “Great ideas often receive violent opposition from mediocre minds” then the strident, endless opposition to homeopathy alone is enough classify it as a raging success. Over two centuries the opposition comes on strong as the party of science, but it always turns into nothing but the party of empty theory and denial of evidence, that “anything so highly diluted cannot work, so therefore the evidence must not be scientifically based.”

Hahnemann met the same complaints, which began as . . or quickly devolved into . . nothing more than insults and name calling. His suggestion to critics was that if they truly wanted to debunk it, then test it following prescribed use. It was because of this steely challenge that the powder keg was ignited and the homeopathic boom felt around the world, to make it what it is today,  a leader in medicine, threatening to become the primary medical paradigm.

GROWTH IN THE MATERIAL SCIENCES

Traditionally it has been the putative belief that there is no plausible mechanism of action for the homeopathic remedy. This changed in 2007 when Professor Rustum Roy, the renowned godfather of the material sciences  at Pennsylvania State University led a team of scientists to review the literature and conduct a series of experiments to examine the plausibility that  water could create specific biological effects.

The landmark paper was titled “The Structure Of Liquid Water; Novel Insights From Materials Research; Potential Relevance To Homeopathy” co-authored by Profs. W.A. Tiller, Iris Bell and M.R. Hoover. The paper introduces a concept little known in general science  called “epitaxy.”

Roy states, “This paper . . does definitively demolish the objection against homeopathy, when such is based on the wholly incorrect claim that since there is no difference in composition between a remedy and the pure water used, there can be no differences at all between them. We show the untenability of this claim against the central paradigm of materials science that it is structure (not composition) that (largely) controls properties, and structures can easily be changed in inorganic phases without any change of composition. The burden of proof on critics of homeopathy is to establish that the structure of the processed remedy is not different from the original solvent.”

“The principal conclusions of this paper concern only the plausibility of the biological action of ultradiluted water remedies, they are based on some very old (e.g. homeopathy) and some very new (e.g. metallic and nanobubble colloids) observations which have been rejected on invalid grounds or due to ignorance of the materials research literature and its theoretical basis.”

The strident critics of homeopathy were still unmoved that more of their vaunted ranks were defecting. The idea that water could retain a “memory” like magnetic recording tape still seemed absurd. But the argument against homeopathy shook it to its core from two sources.

Testing by a Nobel laureate (Montagnier) validated the first serious challenge to the notion that water can’t carry the unique signal of solutes that have recently passed through it (Benveniste), as is implicated in highly diluted homeopathic remedies.

The second blow came from the man Prof. Roy referred to as the “guru off water,” Professor Martin Chaplin of London South Bank University.

IS IT REAL, OR IS IT . . WATER?

In a June 201o article about homeopathy and the memory of water, Prof. Chaplin wrote, “Water does store and transmit information, concerning solutes, by means of its hydrogen-bonded network.” Memory of Water (See also Chaplin’s other articles on an relevent to homeopathy, “Water Structure and Science,” and “Homeopathy.”)

SCIENCE: WATER CAN BE MAGNETICALLY IMPRINTED AND ERASED

The master had spoken. That was all that needed to be said. The argument against the memory of water was dead.

In the words of Nobelist Brian Josephson [quoted in a Feb. lecture] “the idea that water can have a memory can easily be disposed of by a number of easily understood invalid arguments.”

Like magnetic recording tape, water can store and transmit  complex information magnetically, and just like audio recording tape, it can be erased, something that was known by homeopaths but not specifically  determined by the material sciences until nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiments by a French team led by Dr. Rolland Conte using nuclear magnetic resonance equipment and advanced statistics showed that, just like recording tape, magnetic fields, UV, heat and cold could alter, damage and erase imprints on water . .  the amnesia of water.

GROWTH IN EPIDEMIOLOGY 

Two hundred and ten years have passed since Hahnemann administered the first doses of of a high dilute of Belladonna during the 1801 Scarlet Fever epidemic in Königslutter and stunned his colleagues when it turned out he appeared to be handing out nothing more than little sugar pills. Since then to the present day homeopathy has repeatedly outperformed standard immunizations 10 to 1 or more in epidemics of Poliomyelitis; Chicken-pox; all types of Hepatitis, Japanese Encephalitis, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib); Measles; Pneumococcal disease; Cholera; Smallpox; Typhoid; Typhus; Whooping cough; Rubella (German measles); Mumps; Diphtheria; Malaria; Yellow Fever; AIDS, Dysentery and has been reported to be effective in curing mysterious and unnamed and incurable diseases such as rabies! (Andre Seine).

HOMEOPATHY:  AS GOOD AS VACCINES

Dr. Isaac Golden at Melbourne’s Swinburne University conducted the largest study undertaken anywhere in the world on the long-term health effects of homeopathic protection. It was completed  in 2004. His research analyzed 2,304 responses from 1,159 children. Each response covered one year of a child’s life. The study showed homeopathy equalled standardized, conventional inoculations in preventing epidemic childhood diseases, and were found to be  effective in  90.4% of all cases treated!

Examples of homeopathy’s effectiveness

In the Iowa smallpox epidemic of 1902, homeopathic prophylaxis was given to 2,806 patients successfully!

In a 1974 epidemic of meningococcal meningitis in Brazil, 18,640 children were given a preventative homeopathic remedy. Only 4 cases of meningitis occurred in these children!

During the 1957 Poliomyelitis epidemic in Buenos Aires, homeopaths and medical doctors distributed homeopathic Lathyrus sativus to over 40,000 people! Defying exposure, not one of them developed Polio during the epidemic!

Homeopathy now addresses diseases such as cancer, diabetes, veterinary, and phytopathological (plant) diseases. There is now a new field of homeopathy called agrohomeopathy, led by Dutch homeopath Vaikunthanath das Kaviraj.

There are now homeopathic veterinarians! In September 2011 it was announced that the European Parliament’s Agriculture Committee (AGRI) would vote on a draft budget of 2 million Euros ($2.7 million dollars or £1.7 million pounds) for research on the use of homeopathy in farm animals!

The World Health Organization at one point listed homeopathy as the second most used medical modality in the world today, but according to Kaviraj, who claims to have seen the report,  it was quickly pulled from the Internet. The WHO report listed homeopathy second only to traditional Chinese medicine in global popularity. Third was herbal medicine, fourth was Western standardized medicine.

Can it truthfully be said that acupuncture, chiropractic or Chinese herbs . . or even standardized, Western allopathic medicine, can be as effective as homeopathic in epidemics, without the numbers casting doubt on the claimant?

There is one final argument I would like to present here for the claim that homeopathy is the fastest growing medicine in the world today (this is my killshot) and that is that compared to other systems of medicine . . allopathy, acupuncture, Yoga, herbal, Qi Gong, manipulation, massage . . at its inception, all these other systems of treatment were thousands of years old. (A case could be made for chiropractic being newer, but I would counter by saying that it was a development of what was already self evident, many chiropractic doctors practice homeopathy, chiropractic has no ancillary pharmacy for consumers, nor revolutionary physics just now being understood)

If this is not explosive growth, then I ask you, how does anyone explain its acceptance by the very same people who were formerly thought to denounce it as delusion? I have lectured at the world’s most renowned laboratory to Nobel laureates on the physico-chemical properties of homeopathy, as reported by top material scientists. Why am I, a mere “enthusiast,” (as they have called me) being entertained at the world’s oldest and most prestigious institution of science, the Cavendish Laboratory,  by Prof. Josephson, if there wasn’t a desire to know more about homeopathy in the top echelons of science?

Josephson admits he has colleagues, one a physicist, who use homeopathy. But what could be more jaw dropping to scientists to learn that the first Nobel prize was unwittingly awarded for homeopathy!?

Emil Adolph von Behring, won the award in 1901 for his development of the diptheria vaccine said “only the road of homeopathy led to my goal

The use of similitude, “like cures like,” to which homeopathy refers, is the basis for all vaccinations. The only difference is in posology, i.e. how to adminster the dose.  This may be difficult to accept for some, but antagonists of the craft must admit it is stifling true. Behring, regarded by some as the father of modern  medicine said,

“In spite of all scientific speculations and experiments regarding smallpox vaccination, Jenner’s discovery remained an erratic blocking medicine, till the biochemically thinking Pasteur, devoid of all medical classroom knowledge, traced the origin of this therapeutic block to a principle which cannot better be characterized than by Hahnemann’s word: homeopathic. Indeed, what else causes the epidemiological immunity in sheep, vaccinated against anthrax than the influence previously exerted by a virus, similar in character to that of the fatal anthrax virus? And by what technical term could we more appropriately speak of this influence, exerted by a similar virus than by Hahnemann’s word ‘homeopathy’? I am touching here upon a subject anathematized till very recently by medical penalty: but if I am to present these problems in historical illumination, dogmatic imprecations must not deter me.”

Yet without such validation as it now has in the material sciences, it has been in constant use by medical doctors for 200 years. The FDCA was sponsored by a homeopath. It outperformed allopathy 10 to one during the 1918 Flu pandemic. The Cubans recently administered 4.5 million doses of it to stop a leptospirosis epidemic, [PDF] driving crackpot debunkers crazy with doubt,  resulting in virtual eradication of the disease, saving Cuba millions of dollars!

Some have made careers fighting it, and yet all their effort seem to do is throw gasoline on its fire.

As the physical properties and mechanism of the homeopathic remedies become understood, how can it not supercharge this industry? If 25%-30% annual growth is not explosive growth, then what is?

So not only is it the fastest growing medicine in the world today, it is the most modern, and as will be seen, the most scientific, in that it is, for the most part, discovered and developed through direct observation and personal experience by both laymen and professionals alike.

Most people, including current practicing homeopaths, don’t know how powerful homeopathy can be when properly executed.

In the 20th century it has ironically been relegated to the treatment of self limiting diseases [all disease is self limiting homeopathically]. But there has been a remarkable change in this when it was announced in an international journal of oncology that in-vivo experiments at the nation’s top cancer clinic have revealed that high dilutes, as used in homeopathy, can kill cancer cells, and subsequently was used clinically to cure cancer in-vivo.

From its very inception, homeopathy has had the same abusive, non-sensical opposition by the puppets of allopathy as it has now. In other words, whereas it defies logic and only the evidence advocates it, it has grown by leaps and bounds, while the argument against it remains the same as it was 200 years, amounting to nothing more than hand waving, name calling and curses.

Anyone with any intelligence can see it for what it is. All it takes to propel this great adventure ahead is work of the kind found on websites like

KILLSHOT for homeopathy opponents

Since I no longer have input to the imbroglio on Ernst’s PULSE blog,
http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/comment-blogs/-/blogs/stop-the-teaching-of-pseudoscience
(well there seems to be some horrible technical problem) I wonder if whoever is commenting there, or who has access to the great man, could ask a simple question for me, as I don’t seem to be getting a satisfactory answer to it from the geniuses who have been posting commentary on my Youtube videos and blog.

The question is this:

If everything that is said against homeopathy is true, “it doesn’t work, “it’s a scam,” then why is it that its highly diluted remedies are being used in the U.S. at MD Anderson in Houston, the nation’s number one rated cancer clinic,  to cure BRAIN GLIOMAS?

Here’s a link to the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic webpage about homeoapthy:

HOMEOPATHY http://www.mdanderson.org/education-and-research/resources-for-professionals/clinical-tools-and-resources/cimer/therapies/alternative-medical-systems/homeopathy.html

I see nothing there that says homeopaths are criminals, as has been claimed by James “the Amazing” Randi!

Here’s a study in which they report successful treatment:

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ONCOLOGY 23: 975-982, 2003

Ruta 6 selectively induces cell death in brain cancer cells but  proliferation in normal peripheral blood lymphocytes: A novel treatment for human  brain cancer (http://www.virtualtrials.com/pdf/ruta6.pdf)

If Ernst et al can’t answer the question, perhaps Professor Sir Dr. John Beddington, Professor Dr. David Colquhoun, Dr. Simon Singh, Amazing Randi, Dr. Ben Goldacre, MD. Professor Dr. Steven Novella, MD, or Professor Dr. PZ Myers,  a real genius like one of those, could answer the question for me.

I want to know! How can this be?

How is it that we have a considerable group of talent here who have for years been saying that homeoapthy is a crime because it is a cruel fabrication, a monstrous hoax, that the substances it uses for “remedies” have no remedial action at all!

Professor Colquhoun! Amazing Randi! Simon Singh!

Good doctors!

Homeopathy detractors Paul Morgan, Simon Baker, David Briggs, Les Rose, Andrew Lewis, Paul Holloway, David Briggs, you have lain awake in your beds, with the covers to your chins, and you may have thought, and if not, tonight you will, “what should I do if I get brain cancer?”

You muse, “Well, there is a cancer clinic in TEXAS, that was rated by Newsweek magazine as the best the U.S. has to offer. Number one! If I have enough money I could go that clinic and be treated by all the doctors there, who are the “WORLD’s BEST”, with HOMEOPATHY!”

AMEN!?

PLEASE! ANSWER THE QUESTION!

Répétez s’il vous plaît:  “If everything I’ve said about homeopathy is true, that it doesn’t work, that it’s a scam, things like that, then OH MY GOD! . . why is it that its being used in the U.S . .  at the nation’s number one rated hospital,  to CURE BRAIN CANCER?”

What are we supposed to do?

WTF! I could make a Youtube video of my answer, post it on Facebook and TWEET ALL MY FRIENDS!

THAT’S IT!

Hallejewya!

I’ll put the answer in my blog!

(Since we commoners don’t have direct access to these great peer minds, perhaps someone who does could pass the question along to them.)

Oh, here’s a bonus question for extra points, if you answer the first:

What do you think would happen if MD ANDERSON were to USE REAL HOMEOPATHY,  the whole homeopathic materia medica . . use it classically. .  for which it was designed\ . . i.e. symptomologically,  by the totality of mental and physical symptoms, for anything that walks in the door?

As a simple country practitioner I do.

Why can’t they?

Why can’t you?

TEACH ME!
