More evidence that homeopathy works!

Homeopathy, Mastitis and Cows
More evidence that homeopathy works! You can find a summary of the evidence, and the reference at

In brief, this is an EU funded research project that found that homeopathy protects cows against potential udder infection. Over 100 cows in Switzerland took part in the trial, and results showed that homeopathy gave 9-fold better protection compared to the control groups.

The homeopathy denialists, and homeophobes will undoubtedly claim two things. First, the cows knew they were being treated, so it was just placebo effect! And/or that the quality of the research was not good enough! But then, who cares about what they think. This is just further proof of the power of homeopathy, and so is welcome additional evidence.

Alternative to Vaccines. A Personal Quest

By Elena Cecchetto DCH, CCH, RSHom(NA)
Certified Homeopath

For a while I had been reading about homeopathy and knew that Homeopathic Remedies for Immunizations existed (Homeoprophylaxis). I knew that somehow you could use Homeopathic Remedies for the purpose of protection against targeted infectious diseases. I just didn’t know exactly how to do this. My fear of needles (specifically the vaccine dangers) sent me on this quest. So I called a few people to find out if they knew how. I called my friend’s cousin who had studied Homeopathy. I
called a few Homeopaths listed in the yellow pages (yes, back in the days of the yellow pages). I told them what I would like to do and asked if they knew how. I got a few different responses.

They all agreed that indeed it is entirely fitting for the system of medicine known as homoeopathy to be able to perform this function. But they just weren’t sure exactly how to do this. Keep in mind that I was investigating this many years ago. Now there are many Homeopaths internationally working with Homeopathic Remedies for Immunization.

Homeopathy has been well known for its incredible results during epidemics. In the era of the 1912 epidemic, the Homeopathic Remedy called Gelsemium had high success rates among the Homeopathic Doctors of the day. Yes, in the early 1900’s, in North America, Homeopaths were considered Doctors. Some excellent anecdotes and statistics that stick in my mind describing the use of Homeopathy for epidemics go something
like this:

1. One of the earliest tests of the homeopathic system was in the treatment of Typhus Fever (spread by lice) in an 1813 epidemic which followed the devastation of Napoleon’s army marching through Germany to attack Russia, followed by their retreat. When the epidemic came through Leipzig as the army pulled back from the east, Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, was able to treat 180 cases of Typhus, only losing two (1.11%). This was at a time when the conventional treatments were having a mortality rate of over 30%.

2. Within three years of the Diphtheria outbreak in Broome County, NY from 1862 to 1864, there was a report of an 83.6% mortality rate amongst the conventional medical Doctors and a 16.4% mortality rate amongst the Homeopaths.

3. The May 1921 edition of the Journal of the American Institute for Homeopathy had an article about the use of homeopathy during the Influenza Pandemic of 1918. Dr. T. A. McCann, from Dayton, Ohio reported that 24,000 cases of flu treated with conventional medicine had a mortality rate of 28.2%, while 26,000 cases of flu treated homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05%.

My quest wasn’t successful and I got the shots to go travelling. Luckily, I had no side effects that I know of, so far. Even better, I spent months reading the Homeopathic literature that I carted around with me and became completely enamored with the Philosophy of Homeopathy.

More than a decade later and I am finally one of the handful of Homeopaths in Vancouver with the level of education and accreditation that gives me the title of “Certified Classical Homeopath”. Even better, I have the opportunity to offer Homeopathic Remedies to help people be protected for specific infectious diseases. There are various protocols that can be used depending on the disease.

There is a great personal satisfaction that I get when I receive postcards from the travellers who have received excellent Homeopathic Care. Imagine going to India without experiencing any gastro-intestinal complaints! Amazing! Fun! That is how travel is meant to be. I am determined to be able to support people in attaining this kind of travel experience.

Despite, the Finlay Institute is a centre dedicated to development and production of vaccines; we also bring our WHO qualified facilities for all homeopaths and homeopathic medicine. The Finlay Institute acts as supporting institution for research, production and development of high quality homeopathic products. However, according with the social objective addressing prevention of infectious diseases, we are focused on homeo prophylaxis as strategy to attenuate the impact of preventable diseases on developing world, the ones that need it the most.
Thus, development and evaluation of nosodes, appears to be our main approach to fill up the breakthrough on current conventional strategies based on vaccination. Similarly with vaccination interventions, massive applications of prophylactic nosodes give rise to a greater impact on population health compared with individualized therapies. In addition, the easy administration and low economics resources needed, become this alternative really suitable and accessible for developing countries and almost the best for emergency situations comprising epidemic outbreaks and natural disasters. The Cuban experiences of massively administrated nosodes supports it use as promising solution to confront epidemiological dangerous situations.
On October November 2007, three provinces of the eastern region of Cuba were affected by strong rainfalls causing floods of big areas and several damages to sanitary and health systems. The risk of leptospirosis infection raised extremely dangerous levels with about 2 million of peoples exposed to potentially contaminated water.
Considering this situation, the Finlay Institute prepared a leptospira nosode 200 CH using 4 circulating strains and following international quality standards. A multidisciplinary team travelled to the affected regions to conduct the massive administration of the nosode. Coordinated action with public health system infrastructures allowed the administration of a preventive treatment consisting in two doses (7 9 days apart) of the nosode to about 2,4 million of people (4,8 million of doses). The coverage of the intervention rose up to 95% percent of total population of the three provinces at risk.
The epidemiology surveillance after the intervention showed a dramatic decrease of morbidity two weeks after and a reduction to cero of mortality of hospitalized patient. The number of confirmed leptospirosis cases remains at low levels and bellow the expected levels according with the trends and rain regimens. A reinforcing application was given after the hit of the hurricane IKE but using the nosode diluted up to 10 MC. Strict epidemiologic surveillance is carried out on this provinces. Up to date result will be presented. The results supported the design of new strategies for leptospirosis control. This experience could be extended to other diseases and other countries. The Finlay Institute is offering our facilities and specialists to spread this alternative to all regions needing emergent alternatives for epidemic control and prevention.
