CURSE: Rheumatoid arthritis

CURE, Homeopathic: Rhus tox and other remedies

CURE, Spiritual: Christian Science

Rheumatism Healed

“I was a great sufferer from a serious form of rheumatic trouble, my hands being affected to such an extent that it was impossible for me even to dress without assistance. The trouble finally reached the knees, and I became very lame and had to be assisted in and out of bed. I went to the different health resorts for the benefit I hoped to derive from the baths and waters that were prescribed by physicians, but found no permanent relief. I was placed under an X-ray examination, and was told that the joints were becoming ossified. I then consulted a celebrated specialist, who after a thorough examination said my condition would continue to grow worse and that I would become completely helpless.

At that time a copy of “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mrs. Eddy was loaned me. I read it more from curiosity than with the thought of any physical benefit. As the truth was unfolded to me, I realized that the mental condition was what needed correcting, and that the Spirit of truth which inspired this book was my physician. My healing is complete, and the liberation in thought is manifest in a life of active usefulness rather than the bondage of helpless invalidism and suffering. I owe to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, gratitude which words cannot express. Her revelation of the practical rather than the merely theoretical application of Jesus’ words, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” proved to be my redeemer. I did not even have to apply to a practitioner, but am most grateful for the helpful words of loving friends.” — E. B. B., Pasadena, Cal. from Mary Baker Eddy  Christian Science with Key to the Scriptures, Fruitage

Homeopathy and the Physics of Enchantment: The Supramolecular Vaccine

A great discovery is exposed . .

THE BIG DUMMY’S BOOK OF:
Electrical Engineering for the Immune System
by John R. Benneth

Here’s correspondence received from a reader of the previous blog, where I make the assertion that the immune trigger in the modern conventional vaccine is the electron, not the currently presumed molecule of the unrefined modern vaccine, and that the current vaccines can be made safer and more effective by dissociation of the morbid vaccine molecule, proven to be superior in their use by homeopathic physicians.

drgsrinivas writess:

“Mr Bennett, there is a hell of difference between vaccines and homeopathic remedies. If pioneers like you argue that homeopathic remedies work similar to vaccines, no wonder why homeopathy looses in scientific discussions.

“And despite all such misconceptions and misunderstanding amongst the homeopathic community about homeopathy, it is still working. So it must be really a wonderful medicine!”

johnbenneth writess:

You’re simply echoing what popular science, driven by the molecular drug industry, wants you to believe, that “homeopathic remedies” are inert, that they have no active ingredients. The fact is lab tests show they can cause dramatic biochemical reactions. Specifically they show that the “immunogen” is the electron, not the molecule.
Keep reading the literature. Define “molecular dissociation.”

When a molecule is dissociated by the process of dilution and succession, it is stripped of its mass and reduced to its constituate electrons, its signal, the immune trigger, increases exponentially, and thus requires no aggravating adjuvants or preservatives, hence a toxin free, pure vaccine.

The operative phase of inoculation, such as found in the modern “vaccine,” is not the molecule, it is the electron. It is possible to peel away the electron from the molecule mass from the common vaccine, stripping away its unnecessary, dangerous elements, leaving nothing but the pure electrical signal of the solute and a safe, more facile prophylaxis (disease prevention).

And please allow me to note once again “vaccine” is not a proper word for disease prevention (prophylaxis) other than the morbid cowpox serum used for the prevention of variola (smallpox). The word vaccine literally means from cattle, so it is misapplied when addressing whooping cough, the measles or cancer. There’s no safe molecular “vaccine” for whooping cough, measles or cancer, but there is now FDA sanctioned supramolecular prophylaxis for whooping cough, measles and ot5her infectious diseases..

Supramolecular here refers to the fourth contiguous phase of matter: Ions, plasma, essentially the electron.
Actinic here refers to biochemical changes produced by spectral energy.

Now get this, this is crazy: This is a question I punted into Google: How do “vaccines” immunize?
Here’s what I take to be the answer from conventional settled science via the US government’s Center for Disease Control:

How do vaccines give immunity?
Vaccines help develop immunity by imitating an infection. This type of infection, however, does not cause illness, but it does cause the immune system to produce T-lymphocytes and antibodies. Sometimes, after getting a vaccine, the imitation infection can cause minor symptoms, such as fever.
Understanding How Vaccines Work
https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/conversations/…/vacsafe-understand-color-office.pdf

Q: The CDC says “vaccines” help develop immunity by imitating an infection?

It would be what one might call vaccine fallout.  People who receive live-virus vaccines, such as the MMR, can then shed that live virus, for up to many weeks and can infect others.  Other live-virus vaccines include the nasal flu vaccine, shingles vaccine, rotavirus vaccine, chicken pox vaccine, and yellow fever vaccine.”

A: I beg your pardon for exposing more pathological skepticism masquerading as science and rocking the medical Titanic, but the stated recognition that vaccines help develop immunity by imitating an infection stumbles over a contradiction, a huge medical incongruity: it is one of two reasons for rejecting homeopathy, a long practiced medical tradition. Creating immunity from any particular disease by staging an imitation of that disease is the primary strategy of homeopathy, of like cures like in treating not just infectious diseases, but a wide range of human problems, such as those caused by emotional stress, like peptic ulcers, infection and toxicity. The broad application of pathological similitude to treat a wide variety of human, animal and even plant, i.e. biological afflictions is on one count why for over 200 years homeopathy has been banned by standard medical practice.

So this is really an odd conundrum. On one hand, according to the CDC, the use of artificial imitative diseases in countervaling similitude is the only alllopathic strategy for conveying immunity. On the other hand, its use as putative homeopathy is rejected. It would appear that one hand is ignorant of the other.

What is it we’re not seeing here?

Homeopathy and the Physics of Enchantment

CHAPTER ONE

The Supramolecular Vaccine 10.28.18

  • Announcing a breakthrough in immunology that has the potential to revolutionize medicine: The ionized pharmaceutical
  • Supramolecular here refers to the fourth contiguous phase of matter: Ions, plasma, and the electron.
    Actinic here refers to biochemical changes produced by radiant energy.
  • Enchantment here refers to the physics of change.

 

The fundamental revelatory theme driving this thesis is that the electron is actinic*, is a fractal and is what gives the molecule its specificity, properties of action and chain reactions.

*radiant energy causing biochemical reactions ,such as basophil degranulation. 

Here’s a question I punted into Google: How do vaccines immunize?
Here’s what I take to be the answer from conventional settled science via the US government’s Center for Disease Control:

How do vaccines give immunity?

“Vaccines help develop immunity by imitating an infection. This type of infection, however, does not cause illness, but it does cause the immune system to produce T-lymphocytes and antibodies. Sometimes, after getting a vaccine, the imitation infection can cause minor symptoms, such as fever.” – Understanding How Vaccines Work, Center for Disease Control
https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/conversations/…/vacsafe-understand-color-office.pdf

Vaccines help develop immunity by imitating an infection?
I beg your pardon for raising an objection and rocking the medical Titanic, but the stated recognition that vaccines help develop immunity by imitating an infection stumbles over a contradiction, a huge medical incongruity: it is one of two reasons for rejecting homeopathy, a long practiced medical tradition.

Creating immunity from any particular disease by staging an imitation of that disease is the primary strategy of homeopathy in treating not just infectious diseases, but a wide range of human problems, such as those caused by emotional stress, (like peptic ulcers) infection and toxicity from chemical and interpersonal sources. The broad application of pathological similitude to treat a wide variety of human, animal and even plant, i.e. biological afflictions, is on one count why for over 200 years homeopathy has been banned from standard medical practice.

So this is really an odd conundrum. On one hand, according to the CDC, the use of artificial imitative diseases, i.e. pathological similitude, is the only strategy for conveying immunity. On the other hand, its use is rejected by mainstream “medical” opinion . . per se..

It would appear that one hand is ignorant of the other.

A 27-year-old meta-analysis (systematic review) of homeopathy studies published in the British Medical Journal by Kleijnen et al says: “The amount of positive evidence even among the best studies came as a surprise to us. Based on this evidence we would be ready to accept that homeopathy can be efficacious, if only the mechanism of action were more plausible.” (BMJ, Kleijnen, 1991, p. 321)

EXOSKELETAL DEMANDS

Given the disbelief and squalling that surrounds homeopathy, which (according to the Washington Post) has the greatest amount of contention over any subject discussed in the Western world; with the exception of Christ, such an endorsement made by such a prestigious medical journal as the BMJ regarding the world’s only comprehensive precipitating pharmacy of cure would lead one to think that modern science within three decades would have plumbed its so-called “mechanism,” and with apologies to the persecuted Craft, kindly brought this orphaned doctrine of medicine into the conventional family of sciences.

But this has not been the case.

As I earlier implied while presenting the magnum of pathological similitude of the common vaccine, there is a second count of putative inscrutability against homeopathy, buoyed along by what masks itself as “settled science”. . and this is the failure of that stubbornly dogmatic “settled science,” to identify the phase shift in the solute and the tritiation [hydrogen potentization]  of the solvent in homeopathic pharmaceuticals.

With the exception of Rolland Conte, his team and myself, I have seen no real attempt to conventionalize homeopathy by attaching a handle on it from traditional physics or chemistry, when in fact recognized physico-chemical terms and tests exist that define and demonstrate what the homeopathic pharmacy is, what processes create it and how it works.

Throwing one of these ‘little’ sentences into an argument over whether homeopathy has a real chemistry to it or not is like throwing a stick of dynamite into an open fire . . and if you are a student of homeopathy you are now free to imagine the results: It blows open the door to a whole new line of supramolecular prophylaxis, supramolecular meaning ‘beyond the molecule’, prophylaxis meaning ‘action taken to prevent a disease’.”

This then is the purpose of this paper, to reveal to the world the Second Evolution of Prophylaxis, the clean, lean, energetic vaccine, the strength of the homeopathic remedy.

NEXT: A great discovery is exposed

 

 

MURDER BY HOMEOPATHY

Unleashing a Monster . .

Slow Torture and Mass

MURDER BY HOMEOPATHY

After you have seen a great many cases you will find that you have killed some of them. “ Kent

He is right. I am now experiencing a terrible reaction from a homeopathic remedy . . .

The is the first required lesson in the study of homeopathy. It shows the ugly, highly distressing, violent use of a radiopharmaceutical (the medicine used in homeopathic pharnaceuticals0

No one should use homeopathic pharmaceuticals venture an opinion about whether it is safe to take a homeopathic medicine until they have read

MURDER BY HOMEOPATHY.

The callous hubris, the inflated ignorance surrounding homeopathy is so great that most of those involved in the debate as to whether homeopathic pharma is placebo or verum, that most, if not all of our readers here will take this to be an attempt to be funny.

It is not.

Given that laughter be the handmaiden of digestion, the occassional dark attempt should be forgiven, but eschatalogically this is dead serious in the end. According to the reports of medical doctors, painful symptoms can be permanetly adhered to recipients of supramolecular diluents used in homneopathy, destroy their health and even kill them.

Homeopathics should be administered only by trained professionals who are registered to know their potential harmful and deadly effects.

Unfortunately neither homeopaths or their critics want you to know this. Homeopaths want you to think homeopathic drugs are safeand effective, and their critics, like Prof. Edzard Ernst of Exeter University, want you to think they are only safe because they’re inert, and so ineffective.

Some would sat never repeat a dose.

The fact is you can get too much of a good thing. The rule of homeopathy is the minimal dose. Give a single dose, wait and see if there is a reaction. Hahnemann created the fifty millessimal series of diluents, his last scale of remedies, to avoid what’s called an aggravation . I’ve seen it happen before. Repeated dosing of a homeopathic can cause a person to become bed ridden for days. Water does indeed have a memory . .. potentially a long one. And as you will see the worst, most dangerous is in the class of remedies called “imponderabilia” taken from highly radioactive sources. Imponderrabilia can be remedies exposed to radiation from such unlikely and subtle sources such as the light of Venus, magnets and even brainwaves, and then the not so subtle sources, such as the burning rays of the Sun, radioactive elements such as Uranium and Plutonium . . and x-rays. .

Such is the radiation absorbing, such are the discharge properties of Tritium, the radiation battery of water. With this understood, the next step is seeing how condensed matter is transformed into radiation, how the molecule is changed into the electron. Such is the radiation slumbering, its potency actually increasing, like wine in a bottle, as it’s hydrogen augers drill into the glass, pulling out molecules of silica, cozeners to the water molecule, tetrahedral in shape, bonding and forming an electromagnetic lens, quantum entanglement defying gravity, space and time

Mind to mind healing aside, when done right, the pathological similitude employed in homeopathy is the most powerful and effective healing technique in the world today, but as the wise will surmise, anything so powerful must have its dangers, and homeopathy is no exception.

What can cure can kill . .

John Benneth on Prof. Edzard Ernst’s blog on Thursday 14 March 2019 at 14:18

Occasionally I drop in to read what homeopathy critic Prof. Edzard Ernst’s blog at https://edzardernst.com/2019/03/a-p-curve-analysis-confirms-ultramolecular-homeopathic-remedies-are-placebos/ has to say here on WordPress and give him and his brood hive a little honey, see what hornets are buzzing about in the chat cell, check to see if they found a new Queen of Denial to replace Randi yet, toss in the bug bomb, labelled “Murder by Homeopathy”, and run like hell.

Here I am commenting about how he thinks dopey homeopaths are duspensing nothing but placebos :

The fact is, you can kill a man or graft symptoms on him for life using homeopathic medicines.”

Ernst: BEEN ON THE BOTTLE AGAIN JOHN?

John: Ask Kent. If anyone was in need of a bottle, it was probably him, Professor, he made the claim, not me. Kent says you might kill a few of your patients by improper administration of a high potency dilute. Considering the cost of high dilutes these days you could terminate a whole battalion of men for a few pennies worth of what you have been crying is untraceable,

Well is it true? Can these highly diluted “homeopathic medicines” actually possess the chemistry to kill a man?

If so, placebo’s a nice dodge.

John: “Let me ask you Professor, having presumably administered homeopathic medicines as a medical doctor, did anyone die while under your care? To deal with the guilt of knowing you actually killed someone by misuse of these materials would, I presume, drive one mad with anxiety and guilt, and make refuge in skepticism a livelyjrbenneth@aol.com comfort, a place to exercise your hubris . . and would explain the belittlement that often accompanies your responses to those of us who regard homeopathics as verum.”

The question was removed from his blog.

ELDER ABUSE

Disbelief in the power of homeopathic pharmaceuticals has led to deadly consequences, and we need help in educating health care workers, not only of the effectiveness of homeopathy, but its dangers, especially to the elderly.

In fact, if your career is delicate enough to be subject to obloquy, homeopathy has been so deadly that the mere positive mention of it can professionally destroy you. It has been assayed by the Washington Post to be the most contentious subject the English langage can utter, muble or scream

Could it be a mass anamnesis of a Velikovskyean time when infinitessimal dilutions were employed in the destruction of a highly advanced society that allowed supramolecular chemistry to be sprayed indiscriminatly?

I once got a letter from the legendary Jacques Benveniste, I forget what it was in response to . . I thjnk it was in response to James Randi’s trying tp use him and Brian Josephson . . this was like twenty years ago, it was during the time when I was responding to James Randi’s offer to the homeopathy fraternity of one million dollarrs to prove homeopathy, and Randi was dodging one of my tests . . as an excuse to avoid a showdown with me over his offer to pay it for a test that showed a change in conductance in a supramoleculr solutioon He was trying to perform a little sleight of mind, claiming he had bigger fish to fry, going after Benveniste and Nobel laureate Brian Josephson, trying to get them to apply for the million and jump my claim. After having gone thru all that, losing his job at INSERM, his funding revoked and his reputation destroyed, all Benveniste could say was “Homeopathy is the devil’s pisspot.”

Prof. Josephson [https://cosmosmagazine.com/physics/science-history-the-man-attempting-to-merge-physics-and-the-paranormal] rejected Randi’s invitation to him and Benveniste to apply for the million and sent Randi back to me, after which Randi sprung a heart attack and withdrew the offer to me.

That was 20 years ago . . now I know what he was talking about. All these remarkable cures whilethe ridicule, censure and rejection overtime slowly destroys you. Even Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier was driven out of France by what he called “intellectual terrorism”, and this was for the scientific crime of replicating Benveniste’s electromagnetic proving of supramoleculars and the “memory of water.”

But this, the censure of homeopathy and destruction of anyone who dares to reveal what is really only a secondary effect of supramoleculars. just the shell game of homeopathy. Put it this way: It’s as if Pandora closed the lid on revealing the physics of these secrets’ They come with a curse upon those who apprise them, a long, drawn out death sentence, every slow minute of torture like an hour to the betrayer. What I’m talking about is the nut of homeopathy’s morbidity, the potentially harmful and mortal effects of it’s actual actinic chemistry.

It’s radioactive . .

Now there’s nobody I know of who wants to know this, or anyone else to know it, that’s how radioactive the subject is. It’s like when I was a little boy, I was terrified of the Twilight Zone twisted reality science fiction TV series. I couldn’t even stand hearing the music. Likewise, I have come to the point where sticking letters to the page to make words, words to make sentences, sentences book whereopon those stacks I stand on my hind legs and bray “You reader, me John!”

I’m reliving those days now. Writing this particular blog is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. The stress of losing my wife and parents, probate, dealing wqith the overwhelming accumalation of material thing of my family and their disposition I’ve developed

Frank Odds @John Benneth on Thursday 14 March 2019 at 15:40

It never ceases to amaze me, the total ignorance you (and your pal Dullman) are willing to display to the public. “Let us begin with replacing Avogadro’s Constant with Kolrausch’s Law for Infinite Dilution”. Sorry, no. You can’t replace Avogadro’s constant; both are valid. Kolrausch’s Law is valid only for low electrolyte concentrations. Avogadro’s constant defines the number of molecules in a one molar solution. It therefore predicts for a given starting concentration of a substance, the dilution at which there are no molecules of solute left — the point at which Kolrausch’s Law becomes pointless.

For homeopathic dilutions, the point at which there are no molecules left is any dilution >12C.

In any case, what the heck does molar conductivity have to do with treating disease? Put a drop of a 30C preparation on a sugar pill and you immediately invalidate Kolrausch’s requirements anyway

Frank,

Actually you’re wrong about 12c being the molecular limit in step dilutions . . it happens much earlier than that.

As hydrolysis dissociates the molecules in dilution, conductivity of the solution increases, revealing a phase shift from molecule to electron, particle to wave. This happens when the molecular solute hits 1ppm, at approx. the sixth decimal dilution. As mass is reduced, energy increases. There are a number of tests that reveal it. The dilution of chlorine in tap water is about 5X, btw, 10ppm I reckon. It dissipates quickly, due to dissociation.

So you can dump Avogadro, it’s irrelevant to the chemistry of homeopathy. Dielectric tests, Tritium measures, beta scintiilation, low EM signal detection show conclusively supramolecular homeopathics are radiometric.

Not only have we been ignoring chemical tests that define supramolecular homeopathic solutions, we’ve been ignoring how deadly homeopathic remediess can be, and of course this doesn’t meet the squander of either homeopathy enthuiast or debunker alike. Top homeopath George Vithoulkas joined Randi in condemning Benveniste when the French scientist biochemically demonstrated how homeopathically trained water could set off a trained Randi, ignorant of molecular dissociation and supramolecular chemistry.

Prof. Ernst is who I fathom to be homeopathy’s greatest opponent. Josephson disagrees. He says it’s British pharmacologist Prof. David Colquhoun at University College in London for the hellfire he rained down on us over my lecture on The Supramolecular Chemistry of the Homeopathic Remedy in Josephon’s Mind Matter symposium at the Cavendish Laboratory, dumping dozens of emails on the HoD, protesting my appearance there in 2010 in Cambridge, England.

I even invited my friend Uri Geller, who wisely begged off attending and remote viewed it from his White House style mansion on the Thames.

————————————————-

The bugbomb I left with Ernst and company was labelled “Murder by Homeopathy.”

Response to Ernst: Certainly as a self professed TRAINED homeopath you are aware of aggravations, doctor?

AGGRAVATION

Mary Baker Eddy, the 19th century founder of Christian Science, also a homeopath, student of Jahr, married to and divorced from a homeopath, and the adoptive mother of a homeopath, in her opus work, Science and Health, relates one of her cases in which she gives a patient a placebo instead of potentized Sulphur so as to avoid an aggravation:

A case of dropsy, given up by the faculty, fell into my hands. It was a terrible case. Tapping had been employed, and yet, as she lay in her bed, the patient looked like a barrel. I prescribed the fourth attenuation of Argentum nitratum with occasional doses of a high attenuation of Sulphuris. She improved perceptibly. Believing then somewhat in the ordinary theories of medical practice, and learning that her former physician had prescribed these remedies, I began to fear an aggravation of symptoms from their prolonged use, and told the patient so; but she was unwilling to give up the medicine while she was recovering. It then occurred to me to give her unmedicated pellets and watch the result. I did so, and she continued to gain. Finally she said that she would give up her medicine for one day, and risk the effects. After trying this, she informed me that she could get along two days without globules; but on the third day she again suffered, and was relieved by taking them. She went on in this way, taking the unmedicated pellets, — and receiving occasional visits from me, — but employing no other means, and she was cured.”

So here is what impresses me as a relatively naïve homeopath, as most seem to be, almost as naïve as their critics, who in giving homeopathic medicines “began to fear an aggravation of symptoms from their prolonged use.” If these presumably inert “medicines” are incapable of producing an effect due to their benign chemistry, why is it a homeopath is giving an intended placebo to avoid an “aggravation”, illness intensified by an overdose, unless by experience and education she was aware of the likelihood of it?

I was brought onto the scene of a man lying dead in the street, surrounded by crouching paramedics, like Muslims throwing dice in a mosque. I knew of his case second hand from a relative. He was suffering from post-alcoholism, internal tumors and pancreatis (see Clarke, and died after drinking what was a small bottle of homeopathic Calcarea Arsenicosa , an LM, (see Clarke,Calc. Ars.) which caused the tumors to suddenly suppurate. Unfortunately they didn’t do an autopsy to plumb my assertions.

Omnes: “Homeopathics are nothing but pure water/ethanol joking as “medicine. Since when does the placebo effect kill somebody?”

Exactly the best defense for a homeopath’s incompetence. If it’s treated as placebo then it relieves the homeopath of a huge liabilty, leaving it to God to separate the men from boys, or with deference to sex and fairness, the women from the girls. And maybe this is how it should be . .

I have a serious condition that has me in its throws, and counting a Banerji protocol as one, five homeopaths who without agreement on even one have recommended 11 different remedies in low to high potencies. With the overlap in symptoms they treat, each prescription could be right. For exanole, there are 24 different substances found in the materia medicas prescribed for the shaking palsey or paralysis agitans, better known nowadays as Parkinson’s, and who knows how many there are for just plain paralysis. Or they all could be ineffective.

Well, have I or have I not nailed the diathesis?

LIFE SENTENCE

Here is James Kent regarding grafting on symptoms for life:

“Crude drugs do not impress the vital force, so lastingly, but an individual who is thoroughly sensitive and properly sensitive, as sensitive of contagion, then if you undertake to prove by giving it night and morning, you will rivet upon him a life-long miasm.

“If you have given a medicine, wait for the symptoms to come and go in the natural manner. To a great extent this is the tendency with sycosis, the tendency is rather outward.

“We see in the proving of a drug what we see in disease. When a gonorrhoea is contracted, it goes through the prodromal period and then comes the disease, which, if let alone, has in its nature a tendency to eradicate itself from the economy, and then the patients do not suffer from lasting conditions.

“In the old school, they always suppress the discharge, and there are those in the new school who do little better.

The frequent repetition by which one is exposed, would not increase the gonorrhea itself, because the susceptibility is satisfied.

“The taking of more of the drug to prove it does not do so much harm, provided the one who is directing the proving realizes when the symptoms begin to rise, and then stops the drug.

“Now if we go on with the proving by repeating the doses after the symptoms come on, we force the drug into the economy when he is already poisoned, and by this means we get a confusion in the symptoms, the drug disease engrafted upon that individual for life.” Kent, Lectures, Thuja

Here’s Kent on the inevitability of murdering someone using supramoleculars:

POWERFUL ENOUGH TO KILL

It might be dangerous to administer these medicines that have a tendency to cause suppuration in such, and you should at least proceed cautiously in using them. After you have seen a great many cases you will find that you have killed some of them. If our medicines were not powerful enough to kill folks, they would not be powerful enough to cure sick folks. It is well for you to realize that you are dealing with razors when dealing with high potencies.

I would rather be in a room with a dozen negroes slashing with razors than in the hands of ail ignorant prescriber of high potencies. They are means of tremendous harm, as well as of tremendous good.

In contrast with Hepar (although Hepar is a form of Calcarea), Calc. carb. has no such tearing down nature in it. It does not establish inflammation around foreign bodies and tend to suppurate them but causes a fibrous deposit around bullets and other foreign, substances in the flesh. It causes tubercular deposits to harden and contract and become encysted.

Many excellent homoeopathic physicians have said to me,

“I do not agree with you as to the danger of Sulphur in phthisical cases. I have cured cases of phthisis with Sulphur.”

So have I many of them. But I did not refer to curable cases, but to those cases which are well developed and have gave symptoms. It is well to know all the elements in the case; then if you have administered a remedy and killed your patient, you know at least what you have done.

It is better to know what you have dne if you have killed your patient, than to be ignorant of it and go on and kill some more in the same way.”

Kent, Lectures, Hepar sulph

For those who may not know, Kent is widely recognized as one of the greatest homeopaths of all time.

Wikipedia, which belongs to Ernst side of the equation and runs to him for assurances thar homeopathy is plain water says, James Tyler Kent (1849–1916) was an American physician best remembered as a forefather of modern homeopathy. In 1897 Kent published a massive guidebook on human physical and mental disease symptoms and their associated homeopathic remedies entitled Repertory of the Homeopathic Materia Medica, which has been translated into a number of languages. It has been the blueprint to many modern repertories used throughout the world and even remains in use by some homeopathic practitioners today.”,

So let me pose this question to Prof.Ernst and his followers and the countless others who believe homeopathic medicines are inert, how is it that a physician of Kent’s stature is writing indelibly to no benefit to himself about what has been an overwhelmingly strident, putative belief, supported by academia and governments, that thesse supramolecular medicine have no action on the human economy other than what can be dreamed up by placebos?

Kent’s frank admission of the potential permanent and terminal effects of homeopathic remedies should give immediate pause if not dire alarm to the Craft, manufacturers and authorities, and a call to action. But what comes next shouuld make your hair stand on end , ,

The Materia Medica of the Nosodes by Henry Clay ALLEN, M. D.

PROVINGS OF THE X-RAY.

Here is a field of action in which the potentized dynamic remedy bids fair to be unrivaled, for there is no known homeopathic agent, either crude or potentized, that in its primary action is so deep-seated or long-acting in results. Neither is there any known agent that will more surely suppress and render incurable many chronic diseases as this, or none which better illustrates what Shakespeare said so long ago, that,

“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread,” or where

“A little learning is a dangerous thing,

Drink deep or touch not the Pyerion spring.”

There is no therapeutic agent that so often cures, and so often fails where we think it ought to cure, in its empirical use, as this. If when its empirical use has roused latent vitality and restored suppressed symptoms we could correctly observe and interpret them, and for them find the similimum, what possibilities lie in the future ?

As maintained by Hahnemann, Hering and Fincke and demonstrated by the work of the Austrian Provers’ Union, the dynamic potentized drug is the chief factor in both proving and healing.

Like Magnetis Polus Australis and other imponderabilia, electricity and the X-ray are both capable of potentization, and the potentized dynamic remedy is just as superior to the crude drug as Aurum, Lycopodium, Silicea or Sulphur.

A very able description of the discovery of the X-ray by Professor Roentgen was given in the Homeopathic Physician (March, 1896), by Dr. Walter M. James, and concluded with the words :

“Why should not the homeopathist seek to procure a proving of the effects of the X-ray upon the animal economy of the human being ? An inviting field is there opened up to the experimenters of our school. May it soon be cultivated !”

March 27, 1897.

A drachm vial filled with absolute alcohol was exposed to a Crook’s tube in operation for half an hour, and then brought up to the sixth centesimal potency. With this smallest globules were moistened and the vials containing them presented to the members of the Brooklyn Hahnemannian Union, which met the same evening in regular session.

Of course everyone was curious of trying the new remedy and took a small number of globules on the tongue at once, and lo ! it began to reveal its existence immediately, and during the two hours of our being together a number of symptoms were observed, which were at once announced and taken down by our diligent Secretary. Some of the members from that time have been seriously affected, that they would not for any consideration try any more of that mysterious power.

The following is a narrative of its action upon the several provers, being perfectly healthy up to that time, which lasted from the beginning to two months. The action reveals not only new symptoms, but also hunted up many old ones.

If it is assumed that glass is opaque to the X-ray, it was not so in our case, for the alcohol in the vial was certainly affected by it, as the result of the provings show. If the X-ray penetrates certain tissues of the body in order to make the condition of the opaque organs, such as the bones and foreign bodies contained in the body, visible, it also shows its penetration into that invisible interior of the human being, which is under the dominion of the life-force.

Dr. Alice B. Campbell, one of the provers, said :

“Dr. Fincke presented each of us with a bottle of the X-rays, and said : ‘It is a sample, you can take a dose.’ Each of us took a dose. I thought it was such a low potency that it would not have any effect, and that was the reason I took it. We did not know what it was going to do. I took just the one dose.”

I was in the best of health and spirits when I began to use the X-ray ; was a healthy girl, never had a doctor until pregnancy.

Nov. 24, 1906. A lady, aged 56, hereditary cancer in her family ; mother died of it at 52. For an injury of right breast, which resulted in a tumor, which would probably develop into cancer, the X-ray was used for months, reduced its size and entirely relieved the pain. Some time after a stiffening of neck on left side appeared, to which little attention was paid.

Suddenly one morning it went to right side, with intense pain, from which I have never been free for a moment since. Pain severe every night, and occurs in paroxysms during the day. Sudden “cricks” attack first one side, then the other < on getting cold, and turning the head nearly produces convulsions. The pain is more severe behind the ears,, the mastoid process. A sickening grating is heard between the bones of the cervical spine on turning the head. Skin behind the ears red and sore to touch.

The grating is heard and felt in nearly all the joints, especially the shoulders ; toe pains are ‘steady, but at times will appear in sharp “cricks,” then in streaks down the course of the nerves < by moving head or neck ; moving the head on pillow at night is agony. Sometimes the pain is relieved on keeping perfectly quiet, again gentle motion relieves.

Have read all the stiff neck symptoms in Lippe, Hering, Raue, T. F. Allen and other works ; the indicated remedy has failed to give me slightest relief.

Dec. 1, 1906. Last three days left side of head and neck pain intensely and constantly, at times paroxysms of cramping pain in cord, from left shoulder to head, and sharp shooting pain in head, back and above left ear. Cords feel too short. Only relief I have is in walking the floor. Skin is so sore, cannot bear the slightest touch, though hard pressure relieves for an instant. I am nearly mad with pain. (Dr : G– has said frequently in the last month that he was afraid that I was getting too much X-ray ; I though not, although I thought it very queer he could not relieve my pain.)

Jan. 9, 1907. Have taken no X-ray treatment since Nov. 23d. Have not been out of the house for six weeks. Suffered torture for four weeks at every motion of head, neck or shoulders. The neuralgic pains were torturing, and the best selected remedies had little or no effect.

Spigelia partially relieved severity of pains, but they appeared on the right side of head and neck, yet never left the left side for an instant. Atropin relieved the right sided pain for 24 hours, but neck and shoulder are still lame. I now have no severe pain, if I lie still on left side of face and body, but am unable to lift head from pillow without taking my hands, and then only by a slow circular motion.

I can sit up or stand for 15 or 30 minutes, and then clutching, shooting, aching pains begin behind left ear, and in muscles of left side of neck, and I must lie down on left side, and in a few minutes am free from pain. The stinging, contracting of the muscles relieved, but the pain in back. of head is still persistent. Massage, at times, has given slight relief, at other times the slightest touch is so painful that it cannot be borne. Heat relieves the pains at times, but Arsenic does not.

Jan. 14. Improving some ; yesterday could lie with a much higher pillow, first time in six weeks. Should be able to bear the pains could the darting, aching, clutching pain in the bone behind the left ear, which makes its appearance every time I sit up over twenty minutes, be relieved. The stinging, contracting pain is better, and notwithstanding all the suffering from the last few weeks, I do not look as if I had been ill ; color good and gaining weight.

The tumor in breast is softening some, and decreasing in size.

The X-ray treatment was always the very lightest possible, and never once colored the skin red, although tanning it very brown. Took it at first but once a week ; the effect being so good, applied it every third or fourth day.

The first pain I had was a slight stiffness of neck on left side. In March it was only felt on turning in bed at night ; increased slightly and gradually until Nov. 1st ; though I had one severe paroxysm of pain in right side of neck in May, relieved by hot applications, which still give some relief at times. Sitting in the hot sun shining on my neck gives some relief. Have suffered intensely of late from flushes of heat, similar to those I had during climacteric ; better afternoons and evenings.

The back of head at times seems perfectly well-next moment cannot bear slightest touch or lift my head from the pillow without great pain on both sides in muscles of neck. left

In two other cases, which had resisted the best of treatment for months, the remedy developed numerous sycotic excrescences on glans and the symptoms calling for the similimum were sharply indicated, and it cured permanently.

The physical and mental incubus, which for months had made one patient’s life a burden, was immediately removed on the reappearance of the condylomata, which had followed suppression by injections and were subsequently disbursed by cauterization.

August 28, I took a dose of a few globules of X-ray 45m. for some urinary trouble, which ameliorated without being removed.

          • September 13 I felt a stinging and smarting on a place behind the left hip joint while sitting at the dinner table. In the course of the afternoon this symptom disappeared and reappeared on the right side, precisely corresponding to the place on the left side.

            Toward evening it burned like fire, and, on examination, a place as large as a silver dollar on the right buttock was red and tough as if the skin were abraded. On going to bed a blister as large as a hickory nut, not unlike a fish bladder, was present, from which smaller blisters extended down in a curve. The redness and roughness was enlarged to about three inches in diameter.

            On being quiet there was no pain, but on the least motion or friction, the part burned like fire, or a severe burn. In the night the blister opened, and another had come opposite to the first, as large as a chestnut. The pains on motion, touch, or friction, continued like a real burn.

            The skin was red, rough and inflamed, like raw meat, for four inches down, with small blisters of different size extending downward. The large blister discharged gradually, and a scab formed, which, under cessation of pain, fell off, so that by the end of September the skin was as sound as before.

            This reminds me of a similar experience observed from repeated action of the X-rays upon the skin, resulting in a denudation of the tibia for the space of about six inches, as far as the leg was exposed to the rays, because it would not heal from an ulcer consequent upon an injury.

            “On the red erythematous surface elevations begin to appear, of different sizes and which may be acuminate or papular. In the early stage they are barely visible, and resemble ordinary congestion papules.

            If, however, their surface is scratched with a needle, a yellow serous slightly opaque fluid exudes and the papule disappears. These elevations, though of small size, are in reality vesicles.

            They occur in groups or disseminated over the surface, and ultimately develop into vesico-bulle, or vesico-pustules which have the appearance of an ordinary eruption.”

            ” In a weeping eczema the exudation disappears after one to four exposures, and does not return.”

            ” In pruriginous eczema the itching often ceases after a single application.”

            “On dry eczema the effect of the rays is most marked.” A single application is frequently sufficient. ” It is in the more obstinate, chronic, and recurring types that they are the most useful.”

            To quote now from Dr. Hall-Edwards :

            ” The disease generally makes its first appearance in the form of a mild erythema around the roots of the nails. The nails begin to thicken and their substance to degenerate, until they become shapeless masses. The skin becomes uniformly red, and later small warty growths appear. These gradually increase in size and number, whilst the skin generally becomes dry and wrinkled. At this stage, apart from the disfigurement, the patient suffers no inconvenience.

            The warty growths continue to increase in size, and the skin loses its elasticity to such an extent that it cracks with the slightest exertion. These cracks are very painful and difficult to heal. Pain of an almost indescribable character, which appears to come from the bones, and which is aggravated by holding the hands downwards, is felt. Loss of power in the arm muscles is also experienced. At this stage the skin between the warty growths exhibits marked telangiectasis, is considerably thickened, and is tied down to the subjacent tissues.

            There is an ever-present sensation of burning and extreme itching, so that it requires no small amount of self-control to keep from scratching. The bases of some of the larger warts become inflamed, and the thickened mass may come away, leaving an ulcer which takes months to heal. These ulcers are so tender and painful that words fail to convey any idea of the suffering of the patient. They occasionally refuse to heal, become gradually larger, and may assume malignant characteristics, which demand operative interference.”

          • Dr. J. T. Pitkin, in a paper read before the “American Roentgen Ray Society,” in 1903, thus graphically describes the sufferings of this terrible disease :

            ” For a description of the pain and suffering, hyperesthesia and paresthesia, no language, sacred or profane, is adequate. The sting of the honey bee or the passage of a renal calculus is painful enough, but they are comparative pleasure ; being paroxysmal, they have a time limitation.

            Extreme tenderness to the slightest touch, hot and cold waves and flashes, warmth, tingling, pricking, throbbing, stinging, crawling, boring, and horning sensations, as if the parts were on fire and contained bugs and other living things ; feelings as if the anatomical structures were being removed from one position to another ; all of these sensations are proportionate to the depth of the inflammatory process.”

            General Symptoms (X-Ray)

            All symptoms worse in bed.

            All symptoms worse toward evening and at night.

            Body tired and exhausted.

            For many years have removed the sensitiveness of nervous peons in electric storms with electricity cm.

            Prostrated for a long time.

            Sensation of swooning at times during day and night, feeling like dying.

            Symptoms gradually increasing in severity after noon.

            Symptoms intermittent in character, the first observed symptoms have all returned at irregular intervals.

            Trembling all over.

            Twitching internally in various parts.

BENNETH TO ERNST: You having presumably administered homeopathic medicines, doctor, did anyone die while under your care? To deal with the guilt of knowing you actually killed someone by misuse of these materials would, I presume, drive one mad with anxiety and guilt, and make refuge in skepticism a lively comfort, a place to exercise your hubris and would explain the accompanying belittlement that often accompanies your responses to me. Or are you secretly being paid by the Faculty?

Homeopathy, Physics and the $1,000,000 Challenge

Just as Prof. Edzard Ernst is homeopathy’s greatest modern opponent, Dana Ullman, in my opinion, is homeopathy’s greatest modern proponent. In fact, I would nominate him for a million dollar Hahnemann award (if such a thing existed) as this blog of Ernst’s testifies [https://edzardernst.com/2019/02/why-i-changed-my-mind-about-dana-ullman/]. . at least to the latter approbation, despite the attempt by Ernst to smudge the article as “satire”, I propose taking the helm of the dialectic with

Premiere American homeopath Dana Ullman.

an observation that rolls over a snag in the issue these great men are embroiled in, that being the central argument of verum and placebo, whether or not the homeopathic remedy is chemically capable of initiating a biometric, cellular response . . by dint of its instrumentally measurable physical properties. Yes, yes, I know, that sounds a little confusing, to people with limited vocabularies who won’t look anything up, but sooner or later we have to get down to pins and needles.
Just let me say this: As men of science, the team of Ullman and Ernst should be repelling up and down the cliffs of this question of homeopathic chemistry and nuclear physics and meeting at its quantum summit.

Excuse me, did I say nuclear physics? Maybe I should say” unclear physics” . . or what about “new clear physics?” Certainly more cheeky and promising.

Mystery of the lost molecule

Years ago I called super-skeptic Michael Shermer to inform him he had misspelled “Hannemann” in his Encyclopedia of Pseudoskepticism, and in the ensuing conversation about homeopathy he suddenly blurted “what is it?” and I quickly responded

Edzard Ernst, M.D. is an “academic physician” and researcher specializing in the study of complementary and alternative medici

nuclear magnetic resonance”, a sanitized version of radioactive, and that was the end of it.
You’d think he’d want more, but he ran like a bunny. Well, come to think of it, pretty much everyone has and does . . run like a bunny, or a scalded hamster when confronted by such uh, unclear physics. But never fear, Iam here to make them . . if you have the courage to keep reading . ..
Demystifying homeopathy doesn’t seem to be a popular topic among skeptics and homeopaths alike. Naming it and claiming it loses its popularity among those trading in its mysteries. But there is a problem with sustaining a mystery already plumbed.

 

Excuse me, did I just imply that the homeopathic remedy’s mechanism, as the British Medical Journal put it in their ’92 Kleijnan meta review, has been revealed? And what’s this you say, it’s not just all placebo?
Why is it that heresy seems to find a home with me? Am I being used as an example of the futility of swords?

B.S. in Revenant Science

U.S. Senator Royal S. Copeland, M.D., Homeopath and Chief Architect of the FDCA.

One-hundred and ten years ago an article appeared in The Chironian entitled The Scientific Reasonableness of Homeopathy by Royal S. Copeland, A.M., M.D.*

It is a remarkable piece of writing, for among other things, it resolves in finer detail what I told Shermer, and

how it got there, to which, by the way, I have pursued in even finer granularity in today’s references. More on that later if I’m not assassinated . . or  euthanized. Here is what Copeland writes on the futility of swords no matter how fine the edge:

Dissociation of Molecules.

COPELAND: “In the theory of dissociation of molecules, the laboratory of physical chemistry has scientifically proven the value of the infinitesimal. While this doctrine is now well known to every scientist. and especially to the reader of the homeopathic publications of the past five years, it may not be out of place to review it briefly. As interpreted by this theory, a chemical, technically an electrolyte, when dissolved, is dissociated into parts or particles smaller than the atoms and known as ions. The more dilute the solution the greater is the dissociation and consequently the atoms are less in number and the ions increased. In a solution infinitely dilute, the dissociation is absolute and the chemical is present only in a state of ionization.”
Allow me to reiterate: The more dilute the solution the greater is the dissociation and consequently the atoms are less in number and the ions increased.

With that one sentence Copeland should be setting off a spark in the dry tinder of inquiring minds. Dissociation of molecules? What is that? Ionization? What are these terms with which Copeland is promising to demystify the missing molecule in the homeopathic remedy? And what is this about homeopathy and electrolytes?
If you want to read more of what Copeland has to say, be my guest, I presume you have access to the Internet. It’s a lengthy article covering some other interesting stuff in the same vein. Here’s the link: https://www.homeowatch.org/history/copeland.html.
If you’re wondering who he is, Google Royal S. Copeland. He was a U.S. Senator and chief sponsor of the FDCA. In the meantime, let me share with you what I found in my research regarding molecular dissociation and ionization, but first let me reassure you not to feel alone in ignorance. Nobody I know so far gets it or has gotten it. It’s the common brain stem that seems to shut down when it first encounters this. Mine did. The mouth and fingers quit working, there’s a reduction in neural activity, it went over my head the first few times I read it and remained so until I smoked some pot and got the grandstand idea to look up some definitions . . and found myself descending into the rabbit hole of quantum chemistry and . . the infinitessimal.
When particles are diluted in water, they are split apart in a process known as dissociation, and to be more specific, hydrolytic dissociation, when the smaller particles are split into even smaller particles in subsequent dilutions and the molecule is ionized into electrons. In other words the solute changes phase, losing mass as it gains energy, changing from particle to wave and retaining the properties of the original solute.
It’s a nuclear event.

COPELAND: “The more dilute the solution the greater is the dissociation and consequently the atoms are less in number and the ions increased. In a solution infinitely dilute, the dissociation is absolute and the chemical is present only in a state of ionization.” !!!

The chemical in a homeopathic dilution is present only in a state of ionization?

Here it can be seen that for a couple of hundred years the critics of homeopathy have been theoretically counting molecules, when according to Copeland and his references, they should have been looking for ions, and according to Copeland, at least since 1909, the presence of ions in solution can detected using physical tests:

COPELAND: . the laboratory has proven that the properties of completely dissociated solution are the sum of all the ions present in the solution. This holds for such properties as conductivity, lowering of the freezing point, refraction equivalent, heat of neutralization, and undoubtedly, for any therapeutic effect possessed by the drug.

LET”S SEE YOU GET OUT OF THIS ONE: James Randi, skeptic, debunker, stage magician and escape artist, in 1999 offered John Benneth $1,000,000 for proof of homeopathy, Benneth responded with a test . .

Sounds like things in the homeopathic remedy are warming up.
This certainly is news to the arbiters of homeopathy. You’d think they’d want to know, especially those who are proponents of homeopathy. I mean its quite understandable that opponents of homeopathy would want the theory and tests to go away, especially the tests that prove the molecular content to have ionized. In 1999, billionaire Richard L. Adams, Jr., founder of UUNET, treasurer of the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF), speaking through James Randi, offered to me personally, delivered as a challenge, in writing, $1,000,000, provided by Adams, to PROVE that the originating solute, the intended chemical in a homeopathic solution, is present in a homeopathic remedy solution diluted one part in ten 24 or more times in the method of Hahnemann, that point at which not one molecule can remain.

$1,000,000 for proof of homeopathy

In the ending days of 1999 I applied for the Adams/Randi million dollar challenge to prove homeopathy, and my application was accepted by Mr. Randi. I had specifically asked Mr. Randi, if I provided a method by which to identify homeopathically potentized solutions in liquid or pill vehicles among non potentized solutions of the same vehicle in a double blind trial, would that win the million dollars?
Mr. Randi replied by email “yes, just do it and take the money.”

After months of Mr. Randi failing to accept a proposed test of a method, a dielectric assay discussed between

Billionaire founder of Internet backbone UUNET Richard L. Adams, Jr. provided the $1,000,000 to JREF for proof of homeopathy. Adams is the treasurer of JREF.

me and JREF representative Prof. Eric Carlson of Wake Forest University, I sent an “open letter” email to James Randi at randi@randi.org, dated Fri, 22 Sep 2000 08:19:35 -0700, and cc’d it a host of others caught in the diaspora, numerous witnesses, including luminaries of the dialectic as Nobel prize laureate Brian Josephson; INSERM director Jacques Benveniste; homeopathy experimentalist and book author Prof. Gary E. Schwartz; physicist Robert Park; Skeptics-Forum@egroups.com, U.S. National Institute of Health director and homeopathy experimentalist Wayne Jonas, M.D., Boiron representative Andy Bormeth, homeopathy researcher David Reilly, M.D., Oxford public health director Tim Lancaster, M.D.; JREF’s banker at Goldman Sachs Naomi Shapiro, Aquarian editor Syd Baumel; witness Wesley Thuro, psicounsel.com archivist Dan Kettler; Infinite-Energy.com editor Eugene Mallove; U. of Arizona homeopathy researcher Professor Iris R Bell, M.D. Andrew Harter of JREF; advocate for scrutiny of unproven medical practices Wallace Sampson, M.D.; Boiron and finally, of course, who else but the legendary homeopath, Dana Ullman.
In this letter I presented (among other numerous tests using different methods) James Stephenson’s published replication of a test by two French investigators (Gay and Boiron) that identified the presence of ions in homeopathic solutions, as described by Copeland, by measuring the puncture voltage of the solution, well enough to separate the wheat from the chaff, the potentized remedy from its H2O base.
In other words, Adams and Randi wagered a million dollars on published tests that reported having already done years ago what these two men were avowedly betting a million dollars was impossible.

Like any drowning man, I’m reaching out. Can I get a hand here?
Are we having a conversation about this, or is it just me?

What do you think the response was?

*Senator Copeland was the Dean of New York Homeopathic Medical College and Flower Hospital, formerly a Professor at the University of Michigan, the late President of the American Institute of Homeopathy, reprinted from The Chironian, May 1909; in the 1930’s he was the U.S. Senator from New York 1923 to 1938 and Chief Sponsor of the Federal Drug and Cosmetics Act.
