Help Fund/Forward Future Research in Homeoprophylaxis (Homeopathy Prevention)http://www.gofundme.com/HomeopathyResearch [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjcRiegiKBg[/embed]
My Presentation Proposal accepted at the Homeopathic Research Institute conference in Rome! Help support Research in Homeopathy!
About this project One of my research projects has been accepted to be 'postered' (see project picture) at the Homeopathic Research Institute Conference in Rome, Italy in June 2015. I applied to present at the Homeopathic Research Institute because most of my publishing homeopathic colleagues are in Europe (and my heritage is Italian) and this is my opportunity to create important research colleagues and alliances to forward this world of research hopefully extending all the way back here to There currently is the evident catch 22 of asking a homeopath for 'the science' on homeopathy and the abismal lack of funding for homeopathic research.
http://www.gofundme.com/HomeopathyResearch Where exactly would this money go? Luckily - I am VERY good at finding deals: Conference Fee is 320Euros = CDN$543 Flight to Rome is CDN$1059 Hotel (AirBnB) 6 nights is 360 Euros =$485 Print & Ship the Poster $250 Plus transportation and food
So VERY much can be changed with so little homeopathic funding with homeopathy because of the strong principles of healing that homeopathy is based on and has been using in the very same manner for over 200 years. Did you know that homeoprophylaxis (using homeopathic remedies to prevent specific diseases) started to be used in 1796? This preliminary research is the beginning of development of more research to continue to make it clear how pertanent that homeopathic medicine can be for the prevention of specific infectious diseases. Once 'the science' of homeopathy can penetrate the narrow prevailing conventional medical system I see a way that it can quickly turn the tides on the current view of homeopathy and holistic medicine and allow the evidence of how perfectly useful that homeopathy can be to help ourselves, our societies and generations become healthier instead of less healthy. http://www.gofundme.com/HomeopathyResearch As I am in the throws of trying to finish my second year of my MSc of Integrated Medicine and plan this presentation in Rome, I am started to realize how little our Canadian dollars go in Europe. Plus there is currently a lack of funding for research in homeopathy in Canada which is why I am asking for your own generosity - your willingness to place your dollars into the faith that there are opportunities here for us to turn the tides and change perspectives on what are important aspects of health and healing.
While reading this plea, you might wonder to yourself of the reasons that I continue to follow my attempt to offer homeopathy despite the odds. That NOT doing so feels like an abandonment of the primary code of conduct as a health practitioner ‘do no harm’ and against following the code ethics within the principles of beneficence and non-malevolence 4. If I don’t offer something that I know can benefit someone’s condition of health; then I feel that I am not acting as the compassionate human being that I know I am.

This presentation is imperative to the forward movement of homeopathy as an option in Canada and will have very positive implications on my abilities to pursue important avenues as a rigorous and relevant researcher of holistic health options for all of us.
Here is the abstract of the presentation; Malaria is affecting numerous people. As Goldsmith (2011, pp 5) states: “If the World Health Organization (WHO; an agency of the United Nations) had a most wanted list of dreaded diseases, malaria would make the top three”. It affects a variety of populations over vast geographical areas, much of it rural. This makes access to treatments on a large-scale challenging. Historically, homeopathy has had success in the capacity to treat malaria symptoms. The homeopathic remedies that have generated a reputation amongst homeopaths reading about success for malaria-like fever symptoms include arsenicum, china, eupatorium, natrum mur, pulsatilla and sulphur (Curtis, 1994). There are some significant positive efforts on behalf of some homeopaths using the homeopathic malaria nosode (a nosode is a homeopathic remedy made from the disease source) working in Africa who are helping people with Malaria (Ananda, 2010). This paper will explore research that has been conducted regarding the use of homeopathy for malaria. There are a few parasites namely Plasmodium berghei, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale, Plasmodium gallinaecum, Plasmodium chabaudi, Plasmodium malariae and Plasmodium falciparum that have been found to be responsible for Malaria. People are vulnerable to Malaria by having the parasite introduced into their bloodstream in result of being bitten by female mosquitoes (Anopheles species) carrying the infection in their saliva. Because it is transferred by mosquito to humans Malaria is referred to as a vector-borne disease. Prevention of the mosquito bites with the use of mosquito netting has been well promoted. However, the option of staying under mosquito netting all the time can be cumbersome. http://www.gofundme.com/HomeopathyResearch
The prevalence of malaria in many countries that people are travelling to makes is a disease of interest relevant to a homeopathic practice in North America where people are asking for a natural way to protect them against Malaria. The pharmaceutical answer seems to be becoming a less palatable option to travelers wanting to avoid negative drug affects. Also, there is currently no travelers’ vaccine for Malaria. http://www.gofundme.com/HomeopathyResearch
There has been an emergence of a few laboratory studies using homeopathy for prevention of malaria. In this assignment, three projects involving homeopathy and malaria. The first is by the two researchers Rajan and Bagai (2012) with an in vitro culture, the second is the three authors Bagai, Rajan, and Kaur looking at an in vivo test (2012) and the third study is by the State Health Resource Centre in Chhattisgarh (2013) distributing a homeopathic intervention to almost 100,000 people. http://www.gofundme.com/HomeopathyResearch
Homeopathy is second only to Jesus as the two most controversial topics according to Wikipedia 1. Considering my previous career in political advocacy focusing on environmental and conservation issues, I sometimes ask myself; Is that what attracted me to homeopathy? No! It was the fact that once I gave it a try for my lifetime struggle with de-habilitating eczema, it did something that nothing else could do for me and so I was ecstatic 2. That success indeed was what made me passionate about ensuring that people have ACCESS and know about homeopathy as an option if they so choose. Fortunately, that passion has led me here – writing to justify the amazing healing that I am now able to do for many others, now that I’ve spent over ten years continuing to study all aspects of homeopathy above and beyond my four year diploma requirement in order to call myself a homeopathic practitioner 3. http://www.gofundme.com/HomeopathyResearch
