PROC BANDI: The Cryptopathology of Donald Trump

I think I forgot it all after she stepped on my toes, and with a belly full of my wine wrapped a huge python snake around my neck like a collar and forcibly kissed me . . a big open mouth kiss, with lots of tongue.

This is a work of fiction. Except for historical and public figures, the resemblance of characters and businesses described here to anyone living or dead is purely coincidental and unintended. It is not to be mistaken for medical advice. If you have a medical condition, seek the advice of a certified professional practitioner.

From the transcribed case files of Dr. Proc Bandi, M.D., MHP (Master Homeopathic Physician)

“I had the privilege once of intimately knowing a clinically diagnosed narcissist when I was working in Virginia City, Nevada back in 2001. A Washoe Zephyr was beating up the Comstock when she phoned one night looking to do a story on me for the local newspaper. I had every reason to say yes, so she invited me over to her house for an interview and asked if I would bring a bottle of wine . . to her home . . down the road . . in Silver City. A Zephyr is not a steady wind, the violent smacking it was giving my car already had me spooked enough for what was turning into a not so steady episode in my life. Her modern ranch style house dead ended a blackout rambling dirt road on the side of a blind cliff. The door was answered by a frowsey looking blonde who invited me into what was looking like an office. On a shelf to my left was what looked like the skull of a Cayman . . or a baby crocodile . . and my thoughts of typology immediately went to Lachesis, the homeopathic snake remedy. I don’t remember too much of the evening, none of the usual amenities. I think I forgot it all after she stepped on my toes, and with a belly full of my wine wrapped a huge python snake around my neck like a collar and forcibly kissed me . . a big open mouth kiss, with lots of tongue. As fond as I am of fiction, I tell no lies . . it could’ve been a boa, but the rest is as true as my recollection can make it for bona fides in the matter of narcissism. I know she was a narcissist because she later told me she was clinically diagnosed as such by a seemingly real doctor. You may think that the use of a constrictor for forcible osculation was confirmation of a brilliant call of the homeopathic remedy made from snake venom for a sexually tortured woman posing as a journalist, but it wasn’t so. As it turned out, she wasn’t a Lachesis at all, her constitutional remedy typology was Platina, same as high school mass murderers and the President of the United States, the homeopathic remedy for narcissism.”

[N.B. A narcissist is someone defined by their unusual self centeredness and self interest, grandiosity, lack of empathy and manipulativeness, and people love them for it, it is the consumate style of self confidence. The homeopathic treatment of narcissism typically is Platina metallicum: Ionized platinum in solution. Platina, semiologically speaking of character type, is denoted by alienation, a disproportionate view of things around him, proclivity to terminate others, the desire to kill, lack of guilty conscience, view of others as little and inconsequential, erotomania, sexual perversion. Clarke says, “One characteristic symptom, either when found alone or in association with other conditions, has led to many cures with Plat.─Lost sense of proportion in both ocular and mental vision. Objects look small or the patient thinks them small. This becomes pride and hauteur in the mental sphere; the patient (generally a woman) looks down on everything and everybody. This is a keynote of Platina]

Proc Bandi: “The visual tipoff to a Platina is a tilted back head, literally looking down their noses at everyone and this is a common posture for Donald Trump. It fits my own experience that Platinas have been described as super-sexy Lycopodiums. suggesting that beneath the hard exoskeletal shell of a Platina lies the fearfulness of a Lycopodium, perhaps the next remedy after giving Platina. The functional use of platinum in modern industry I’ll venture to say is the same as that in politics, as a catalyst. Like other substances in the homeopathic pharmacopeia, its properties are anthropomorphic, meaning that people affected by this remedy share its qualities, dense, malleable, ductile, and highly unreactive. It is a silverish-white transition metal, one of the rarer elements in Earth’s crust. Transition metals and their compounds are known for their catalytic activity. It may be argumentative that Trump is dense, malleable, ductile, and highly unreactive, but I would proposition that outwardly he is, that is to say that it is an exoskeletal shell whether for the good or bad has had a catalytic effect on those around him, and in Trump’s case this would be the entire world in transition, ruled by an openly Machiavellian character. –The Silver city woman was suffering from hepatitis, so I prefaced a course of Lycopodium with a dose of Platina 10M which, with orthomolecular supplementation, cured her of her liver problems.

[N.B. The fundamental basis of Machiavellianism is that a ruler is not bound by traditional ethical norms]

Hillary Clinton: Homeopathic Treatment of Pneumonia

THE DAY AFTER THE FALL

Most people are generally unaware of a second, cryptic pharmacy approved of by the FDA, the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the U.S. (HPUS). It is virtually unknown for its amazing success in treating serious diseases like sepsis, cancer, diabetes, inflammation, hemorrhagic fevers like Ebola and Dengue and just about any other symptomatic condition. It is not well known in the West for several reasons: difficult to understand prescribing without a simple pro forma prescription scheme, some drugs treating thousands of symptom, and a track record deadly to the Evil Empire . .threatening predatory medicine’s claim to be the only internal medicine available . .

Yesterday it was announced that 2016 U.S. Presidential candidate took a fall; Hillary Clinton has pneumonia.

Sep. 11, 2016 NEW YORK (AP) — The Associated Press reports Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton abruptly leaves a 9/11 anniversary Sunday. feeling ‘overheated,’ according to campaign officials. Hours later her doctor discloses she has pneumonia.

Predatory medicine is not the only one that needs to be propped up . .

“A video showed Clinton slumping and being held up by three people as she was helped into a van after the event” the AP says.

Less than two months from Election Day . .

Is there a homeopathic cure for pneumonia? According to the U.S. Federal Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) regulating homeopathic drugs, there is.

GAY DEATH RATE CHALLENGED

Critique attempts refutation of homosexual mortality study

Submitted by 4tis on 2011/10/30 at 8:53 am

A reader writes:

You ask for a refutation of your statistics. Let’s take the claim about life expectancy, which I assume is based on the Cameron obituary study. There are a number of critiques available that show that this study is extremely flawed, for example http://psychology.ucdavis.edu/rainbow/html/facts_cameron_obit.html
Why did you choose to accept what is a quite astonishing claim?

Dear 4tis:

Thank you very much for commenting on a difficult, critical subject . . and what has become a highly contentious and depressing one, too.

The kind of refutation I’m looking for I’m not finding in the Cameron critique . This is the sole denialist argument we see in attacks on homeopathy, attacks that build a case for placebo by finding methodological criticisms of tests for verum, i.e. claiming proof that homeopathic remedies are placebo because due to local (idiosyncratic) criteria tests for verum have failed .

The proper refutation is to answer the question, independently, using global criteria, avoiding the pitfalls named in the localized dismissal.

The question here is, what are the health differences and mortality rates between heterosexuals and homosexuals?

The refutation of the conclusion that homosexuals have twice the number of suicides and live  24 years less than average is based on nothing more than armchair analysis. Too easy. It’s massaging the data, twisting the facts.

This is 100% of the skeptic argument.

A proper refutation of the numbers is to go get your own. Answer the question using facts found by an independent, non biased survey.

What a new study might find is that gays live longer, happier lives. If those facts were available, then why aren’t they being used?

The answer is that no such conclusion exists. every study comes to the same conclusion. The gay lifestyle is a debacle!

Are the studies wrong? Then instead of poisoning your own well by discrediting existing studies,  find or do research that proves otherwise, and present that instead. Don’t equivoate, illustrate. If you don’t, it suggests you can’t without confirming what is already known.

I’ve seen it happen in every argument against homeopathy. They’re all built on nothing more than accusations, theory and complaint. It’s always a negative argument, it never presents positive information to support its case. It always turns out to be nothing more than those three monkeys.

Answer the relevant question. Don’t give me a negative opinion, give me a positive fact.

What is the average life span of a homosexual?

What is the suicide, misery index, income, drug an alcohol abuse? We’ve shown you 24 studies to support our conclusions, let’s see yours.

And if it isn’t important to know what it is, then why are you picking it apart the answer to the question if it was?

You ask the question, “Why did you choose to accept what is a quite astonishing claim?”

To say that it is an “astonishing claim’ is presumptive. What may be astonishing to some who are merely opining on it, whereas it may be prosaic to others who are actually dealing with it day to day.

Perhaps the reason you frame it as “astonishing” is a putative appeal, as if everyone should know it’s false, because that’s what you want everyone to believe, that this is an extraordinary, baseless claim, giving you an excuse to raise the bar on the evidence, supported by concordance, published in a serious psychiatric journal, supported by two dozen studies: The data is the same for countries where homosexuality is the norm and others where it isn’t.

An analysis in 2008 of 25 earlier studies on sexual orientation and mental health in the UK revealed that homosexuals are about 50% more likely to suffer from depression and engage in substance abuse than the rest of the population. It also found that the risk of suicide jumped over 200% if an individual had engaged in a homosexual lifestyle.

The data is more global than the Cameron critique, which characterizes it as idiosyncratic, novel and biased. The conclusions for the high gay death and mental rates  are drawn from more than one study. The same conclusions are also suggested in a California study by Susan Cochran at the University of California, Los Angeles, also published in the open access journal BMC Psychiatry. Cochran reports that homosexuals seek treatment for mental health issues or substance abuse at a rate over two times higher than heterosexuals.

To be fair, the catch words in the Cochran study are “seek treatment” as opposed to ‘needing it but not doing something about it,” which seems typical of the usual macho approach by heterosexual men.

Cochran concludes that, “The pervasive and historically rooted societal pathologizing of homosexuality may contribute to this propensity for treatment by construing homosexuality and issues associated with it as mental health problems.”

However, there is a point entirely missed by the narrow refutation of Cameron. Critics of the accepted secular interpretation that mental illness in homosexuals is due to discrimination say that the numbers of homosexuals seeking help for mental and physical problems in countries where homosexuality has been “normalized,” are global, virtually the same as they are where homosexuality is openly condemned.

Homosexuality bigotry blames the reporter as the cause of problem, which is what I’m encountering here. Reporting information here and suggestions that homeopathic treatment may help reverse the condition is being construed by some as being the cause of it. This is typical allopathic thinking, to see symptoms as cause instead of what they really are: Direct observation reportage.

The global data refutes Cochran’s putative matching conclusion that the pathology of homosexuality comes from it’s condemnation by heterosexual society. What it suggests instead is that the pathologizing of homosexuality comes not from homophobes, but from covert victimization by its attendants, who have spread the belief that it needs no correction, the subtext being that homosexuals are stuck that way, when in fact there is evidence to the contrary.

Homosexuality is a cash cow for the allopathic psychiatry industry. The local fluoxetine pusher can always depend on gays to keep him in business. Curing homosexuality with homeopathy is as much a threat to the medical establishment as is curing any other disease.

The predators don’t want you well, they want you sick. They want you coming back for more of their junk so they can bleed you of everything you got.

Not every gay grows up gay. Some are made that way. Some women become Lesbians after their marriages to me go bad. Some men raise families, then turn . .

The occnditions assoicate with homosexulaty are curable with the individualied homeopathic remedy! Curative medicine works at the cellular level. The genesis of disease is unimportant. Symptoms are guides to the remedy.

POTENTIZING DISASTER: 9/11 30C

Channeling Hahnemann . .

Free homeopathy for first responders, supported by the rest of us:  9/11 30C

“It was so dense as it subsided that I could hear the particles raining to the ground with a dry, hissing, crackling.

“It had enough pressure to get into just about anything,” said Lioy, who has studied extensively the 9/11 dust and its health effects.

International Asbestos Testing Labs of Mount Laurel, N.J., has tested thousands of other samples for the EPA .

IATL ran the samples through a number of tests including polarized light microscopy, analytical transmission electron microscopy and atomic absorption spectrophotometry.

Lab director Frank Ehrenfeld explained that they found what they expected: “a mixture of many components all very fine.”

The pH was characteristically high — 9.6 and 10.2 — which Newman said had probably decreased over the 10 years because of moisture.

“The dust cloud is a complex mix of hundreds — and possibly thousands — of chemical substances, a small portion of which we have a relatively good understanding of what was present, and the majority of which we don’t have any idea what it was,” said Dave Newman, an industrial hygienist with the New York Committee on Occupational Safety and Health.

About half the material was “non-fibrous” including polystyrene foam, vermiculite mineral, combustion product (carbon soot), mineral dust of gypsum, calcite, dolomite and quartz. The other half was fibrous material including “cellulose (wood and paper fragments), fibrous glass such as glass wool with yellow resin coating, Fiberglass, colorless mineral wool, refractory ceramic fibers, limestone, calcites, carbon fibers, synthetics (including fragments of cloth) and chrysotile asbestos associated with the lime and carbonate insulation debris.”

Find someone to take dust from the 9/11 disaster today (09/11/11) and at ground zero triturate with a pestle one part

9/11 dust in nine parts milk sugar for nine hours.

Then take one part of this mixture and triturate again for nine hours for a 2X, and repeat for a 3X.

I know this is late notice but I’m simply acting on the inspiration of the moment. Those who understand homeopathy and its pharmacy will understand the importance of this idea.

Make a mother tincture of of the 3X in distilled water, and serially dilute 1 to 100 thirty times to create a 30C, 200c an LM1. Fix with pear brandy in small eyedropper bottles.

Offer this mixture to First Responders who are suffering after effects for free and to everyone else for $30, including shipping and handling.

We need a non profit distribution plan to make this available to anyone who wants it.
Please contact me through this blog if you see the value in this . . immediately. Simply respond in the comment section and your registration email will be sent to me. I will then in turn send you contact information.

The Remedy for Terror

Compare Mark Anthony CONDITT/Jared Lee LOUGHNER, STRAMONIUM, 16 criteria, value 63
Themes: Light and dark, clinging from terror

  1. Alone, 6
  2. Sadness when alone, 4
  3. Repetition of thoughts, 1
  4. Grasps at genitals, 1
  5. Shamelessness, lewd, 6
  6. Sleeplessness, 6
  7. Frightful fancies, 6
  8. Confused speech, 1
  9. Speaks nonsense, 4
  10. Look fixed on one point staring, 6
  11. Delusions of murder, 4
  12. Desire to kill, 2
  13. Somnambulism, 4
  14. Violent, 4
  15. Tries to kill people, 4
  16. Kill, 4

These must be Stramonium times, for Stramonium is the major remedy for terror. Terrors of wars long past. Terror, terrorist, terrorism are featured in Lughner’s writing.

STRAM: “Violent laughter with sardonic expression on his face. Stram. stands alone among the deep acting remedies, in its violence of mental symptoms.” (Kent)

STRAM: Desire for light and company. (Lippe)

STRAM: 1. Young plethoric persons who desire light and company, dread the dark and solitude.

The repertorized symptoms for Stramonium put it in competition with Hyoscamus as the top remedy. What Stamonium lacks in value it makes up for in criteria. What distinguishes this remedy is that it is the main remedy for terror.

One or all of these remedies may have been preventatives for the pre murder-spree Jared Lee Loughner. We’ll never really know because we can’t turn the clock back. What other remedy within the homeopathic materia medica addresses seemingly motiveless mass murder? If it can’t address some the more peculiar symptoms, then it has to address a personality type that seems to have absolute remorseless disregrd for human life.

SCORPION

Well, there is one more that comes to mind. It isn’t repertporied in any of the materia medicas, such as as exhaustive works by Kent or Clarke or others I’ve been using, with the exception of a short entry by TF Allen, who doesn’t repertorize symptoms.
However, there have been a modern proving of it which my references don’t have, but Chappell and others describe its indicators. It a remedy for sociopathy.
The remedy is Scorpion and it has some rather stunning implications in the Loughner case.

Made from the venom of the scorpion, this is the homeopathic medicine for sociopaths, according to Peter Chappell in his great book, “Emotional Healing with Homeopathy.”

“Scorpions live under rocks and sting their prey to death by sudden attack,” he writes. This begins, in part, to build the first part of an image of a neighbor of the Loughners painted of the young Jared as a child, looking out from indoors at the other children playing outside.
In online refernces to it I’ve seen it as a remedy prescribed for children, especially those with ADHD who are violent and whose parents fear them.
It’s been said of Loughner that he was disruptive, so much so that he was kicked out of class. One of the people who knew him said he would stir up trouble wherever he went. I’ve tried to repertorize that particular criterion, and haven’t succeeded in the classical materia medica. I find violence as a mental criterion, but I haven’t found anything for or akin to troublemaking.
Although it disruptive is missing in his index, Chappell describes the types most affected by the Scorpion remedy to be impossible kids who can‘t learn, and are disruptive everywhere.

It may fit Loughner in what he became, but it doesn’t seem to describe him as well as Hyoscomas and Stramonium.
The literature provides us with three basic remediees that may be of value in the schizophremic condition.of over citable manic psychosis: Belladonna, Hyoscamus and Stramonium.

In Belladonna there is a red theme that runs through it, “seeing red,” redness of the skin, particularly the face and together with complaints of heat and dryness. The remedy is indicated when there is uncontrolled manic excitement. There is always an interest in metaphysics.
“All of my Belladonna patients have professed to have physic abilities,” writes Phillip Bailey, MD, in his book, Homeopathic Psychology, “and this has been accompanied in each case by an obsession with understanding non physical realms of reality.”
That sounds like what was reported of Loughner’s obsession with what is real and what is not real. Violence is a major part of the Belladonna constitutional pattern. Bell. fit’s the bossy, assertive type to those who know him.

Hyoscamus, like Belladonna, is another nightshade. There is a shameless, shocking and revealing focus on sexuality, They can kill from jealousy. Their hands tend to gravitate to the genital area. They tell inappropriate sexual jokes, or jokes that are malicious and nasty, engaging in inappropriate antisocial behavior. They can be streakers, flashers.

“There can be suspicion dengenerating into deep mental states of paranoia,” writes Peter Chappell of the Hyoscamus state in his book Emotional Healing with Homeopathy.
Hyoscamus is characterized by a passive delirium. Hyos. is a remedy between Belladonna and Stramonium.

There is no more violent type than Stramonium, who are usually calm most of the time and will talk in a strangely detached way about how they have no control over it when they want to kill.

Stramonium people will look at you with a stare that is unnerving and totally devoid of fear.

Compared with the fevers of Belladonna, the fever indicated by Stramonium is continual and unremitting.

“Fifty-one pages of confidential police documents released by the Tucson community college Jared Lee Loughner attended give detailed descriptions of his behavior, offered by fellow students, instructors, and campus police: Loughner was disruptive in class, often speaking out of turn or making nonsensical assertions. He once insisted that the number 6 was the number 18 and, in an act that got him expelled, made a YouTube video calling the college “the biggest scam in America” and linking it to genocide. Campus police officers wrote in their reports that they believed he might be mentally ill, while others described Loughner as “creepy,” “very hostile,” and having a “dark personality.” When two police officers delivered a letter about Loughner’s suspension to the young man’s home, they requested two additional officers be posted in the neighborhood.” -Posted at 6:13 AM, Jan 13, 2011 on The Daily Beast.

After looking at these remedies, the one that seems to edge out the others is Stramonium.

However, there is one more remedy that should be considered and if not used, at least kept in mind for future cases, especially those dealing with young people. Chappell declares that be believes the traits of of the Scorpion remedy profile come from genetic damage, from one of the parents having been stung by a scorpion. It raises an interesting question. How many people who have been stung by scorpions have children with behavioral issues?

“They can be extremely violent, hurting or even murdering others just for the fun of it. They can be mean without any conscience.” (Chappell)

One of the earliest records of the homeopathic principle is in the Ebers papyrus, which describes Isis using scorpion venom to cure patients exhibiting similar symptom pictures to those caused by scorpion stings. And there is indeed an eponymous homeopathic made from it.

Parents of these children, according to Chappell, often fear bodily harm from Scorpion children or that they are headed for a life of violent crime. The children are detached, like to be alone. Indifferent to pleasure or pain, to others opinion of them or to responsibility, removed from the demands of society, Scorpions live in a self imposed isolation where they build up a store of hatred. They view the world as if they are looking at it through a hole in the rocks.
Their minds go blank when concentrating and can’t think of more than one thing at a time.

Without knowing more, without talking to the subject, his parents and those who knew him, its hard to know exactly what the right remedy might be. But I think its pretty obvious its narrowed down to three, and my bet is still on Stramonium.

Differences between homeopathy and conventional medicine, called “allopathy”

Orthomolecular physician Dr. Joel Wallach, N.D. says school shooters are nutritionally deficient, especially in Lithium (orate).

Causal motives are not required to find a homeopathic remedy. All that is needed to find the right homeopathic remedy are known guiding symptoms.
However, without examining motive, how do we know the remedy isn’t simply suppressing symptoms caused by the motive? If the motive isn’t dealt with, what’s to keep the symptoms from returning?

Conventional, corporatized mainstream medicine, uses a technique called allopathy for the treatment of disease. The word allopathy means “other suffering.” It is the technique of treating symptoms by creating new ones. The symptom most often caused by allopathic treatment is an artificial sense of well being, dullness and insensitivity.
Allopathy is the opposite of homeopathy, which means “same suffering.” Homeopathy treats disease by creating similar symptoms so as to evoke the body’s powerful healing mechanism. The chemicals used to do this are ionic liquids, hydrolyzed chemicals, the solute plasmas that act as energetic analogues of the substances from which they were extruded that can evoke a curative response without the overwhelming physical damage and ineffective palliation caused by allopathic drugs. The fundamental reaction caused by homeopathic materials is heightened sensitivity of the curative response, just the opposite of the primary symptom of allopathy.

Allopathically it is much easier, therefore much more profitable, to simply address each symptom by creating a diversion of other symptoms, usually numbness, or another disease unrelated to the allopathic drug given as an implied “cure.” Capitalistic systems which depend on the exploitation of human weaknesses then are compelled to abhor homeopathic and gravitate toward allopathic treatments.

I Challenge Edzard Ernst and the Evil Empire Part IV

Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, also denounced homeopathy, but it was on the same grounds as she dismissed allopathy. Professor Edzard Ernst, first chair of Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the University of Exeter in England does not apply such a global perspective to the subject in his argument against homeopathy. His own assertions seep through his dismissals, sweeping aside the evidence with the same dinghy reasoning.

Just as homeopathy competed with her faith healing, it competes with his, the faith healing of the of the hard drug racket of Pfizer, GlaxoSnithKilne and Aventis.

Ernst is their front man. 
Professor Ernst says the evidence for homeopathic verum is insufficient, and so it must be placebo. Very well then, where is his evidence for homeopathic placebo?

What? Yes of course. You don’t think acccusations of guilt don’t need to be proven, do you? Then why is the placebo charge that bears with it the appellation of sham sotolerated?

The accuser must prove it, or suffer the same penalty. And Ernst can’t prove it!
Look, do the math. Homeopathy (H) not equaling verum (V) is not proof for H equaling placebo (P). P must be proven for H by the same terms demanded for H proving V.
But it gets even worse. Ernst doesn’t define what he means by placebo!
Edzard Ernst makes no reference to scientific tests for placebo. Edzard Ernst gives us no theory for psychosomatic, psychogenic effects. Edzard Ernst does not even define what he means by placebo, because placebo is not a scientific term. It is a word from another kingdom.
There are multiple definitions for placebo. In Latin placebo means “to please.” Placebo is primarily a religious term, the opening words for the evening prayers of Vespers. A placebo used to refer to someone who would come to a funeral for the free food and drink. They could be spotted as phonies because it would be the first words out of their mouths when they entered.
And so it is with Ernst, coming to the funeral he’s set for something he’s trying to kill.
“Homeopathy’s dead,” announces Ernst as he enters the hall of science “Placebo” is his word for admission, and the pseudoscientists he lords it over bow and pray to their golden pseudoscience calf!.
But homeopathy is not dead.

In the first installment of this series, I challenged Edzard Ernst to a duel. I challenged him to match me, study for study, placebo for verum, head to head, arm and leg, mano a mano. He shows us a scientific study that shows homeopathy is “placebo,” I show one for verum, the opposite of placebo.
In medical jargon, medical means a sham, verum means the truth.
And that is what I’m here to do. My colleagues and I are here to reveal the lie, show the truth, heal the sick, cleanse the leper, dissolve the cancer, stop malaria, end diabetes, cast out demons. And as an added bonus, not only will we do that, I will reveal the classical science behind the homeopathic remedy, its modus operandi, how it works and its physical structure, right down to the atom.
In ten years of study I have met every shape of skeptic and argument that the broad breadths of the world can furnish, and never to date have I lowered my arm. Every argument against homeopathy is based on fallacy and lie, as spread by the likes of Edzard Ernst.
Excuse me. I, John Benneth, have lectured in the world’s most prestigious halls before the most learned audiences, such as Hahnemann College in London, and the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge. I have stood before the most discerning audiences. But, as one of the world’s greatest physicists was likened to say, no one has yet proven me wrong. And they won’t. They can’t. I am about to reveal to the world one of its greatest mysteries. the supramolecular mechanics of the world greatest medicine, hitherto unknown.
My testaments are supported . . not by entertainers, magicians, pseudoscientists or journalist doctors nor convicted racketeers, as Ernst’s are, but by real scientists, Nobel laureates and professors of the material sciences.
I don’t draw upon the inhabitants of fantasy land like Edzard Ernst, James Randi, John Beddington or David Colquhoun do. I don’t need to posture and pose as if Avogadro finished this sentence, as Michael Shermer and Simon Singh will do. I don’t need to scribble a column for a white washing newspaper like Ben Goldacre does. No! I look to the hard sciences for my answers.
So I can say, without doubt or wish for more, that the case for the world’s greatest medicine is now complete. And with the help of Edzard Ernst, I will spread the truth about homeopathy.
I speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Listen, there were times when I thought that money and reputation spoke louder than the truth. The problem was I was not listening, there was quite enough to go around for all to enjoy. Someone is always standing about who doesn’t care about the money, and that’s the guy who blows the whistle.

Listen! and you will learn one of the greatest truths ever known to Man.
