Steve Scrutton's Homeopathic Safe Medicine Post

Recent medical news indicating that conventional medicine is dangerous. So why is the public never told about any of it?

The history of conventional medicine is full of failures, horrors and patient disasters. In the 19th century it used techniques like blood letting and blistering, and drugs now recognised to be dangerous, like Laudanum, Calomel and Antimony. Many more pharmaceutical drugs followed during the 20th century, passing through Thalidomide, Fen-Phen, Baycol, Tysabri, Effexor, Avandia, Vioxx, and many, many more, listed on this link, but too numerous to mention here.

Past performance is always the best predictor of future performance.
So are today's drugs, the one's doctors are giving us now, any better? Regular readers of this blog will know that they are not. They are causing side effects, adverse reactions, that are generating the rapid increase of serious chronic illness and disease. Conventional medicine is well aware of this but in their pursuit of profit they are prepared to continue prescribing these dangerous drugs up to the point that doctors can no longer keep the truth from us.

The problem is that the harm being caused by pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines are never publicised. Our doctors, our national health services, our politicians and governments, and the mainstream media organisations, just don't bother to tell us.

So whilst we may be aware of some of the drugs and vaccines that have been banned and withdrawn in the past, few people are aware of the harm present day 'medications' are causing. To demonstrate this, I thought that I would bring together some of the recent news stories, since the recent holiday period, about the dangers that conventional medicine, and pharmaceutical drugs particularly, present to our health, THAT WE ARE JUST NOT TOLD ABOUT.

VACCINE CONTAMINANTS
This article states that there have been hundreds of articles in medical journals that have found stray viruses, aluminum, mercury, etc., in vaccines, and asks whether this happens in error, or is a regular occurrence. It refers to Italian and French researchers who looked at 44 vaccines, and found inorganic contaminants IN EVERY SINGLE ONE!

You will not find this reported anywhere in the mainstream media!
VACCINE BOMBSHELL This article states that a 'confidential' GlaxoSmithKline document, recently leaked to the press, showed that 36 infants had died in the last two years after having received the "6-in-1" vaccine, Infanrix Hexa.
Leaked to the press? Perhaps, but you will not find this reported in the mainstream media either!
MEDICAL SCIENCE DELIBERATELY HIDING HPV VACCINE DEATHS?
Drug manufacturers & regulators accused of concealing harm done to young girls by vaccine, including death permanent injury, and life threatening reactions

Reported just over a year ago, but hidden, dismissed and minimised by medical science - and, of course, censored by the mainstream media.
ANTIBIOTICS LINKED TO FATAL HEART CONDITION The Dr Mercola website has reported this month that Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, prescribed for upper respiratory and urinary tract infections, have been found to increase the risk of aortic dissection, which can lead to death. The article states that these antibiotics have long been associated with 'adverse events' that include psychiatric effects, kidney stones or failure, tendon rupture and retinal detachment leading to blindness.

If you think we might want to know about these dangerous side effects,  the mainstream media does not agree. They have never mentioned the new evidence.
These are just some of the articles I have come across since the holiday period. I could provide you with many more (check my Tweets (@stevescrutton), my Facebook page, or my Linkedin page, regularly for these. But the main point is that no-one should ever assume that the pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines that our doctors are giving us today are safe.

If we are not aware of the dangers of today's drugs it is because we are never told about them - until after hundreds, thousands, millions of patients have been seriously harmed by them!

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Cat allergy is an abnormal immune response by the body to cat dander or saliva, leading to the development of a complex of symptoms which can negatively influence health. Cat saliva 9cH and Histaminum 9cH are indicated, according to isopathic principles, for the treatment of cat allergy, however no research has been done to date.

AIM:

To determine the effect of Cat saliva 9cH and Histaminum 9cH (combined) on cat allergic adults.

METHOD:

30 Participants with a positive test result for a cat allergy skin prick test (SPT) were recruited to a double-blind, randomised, placebo controlled clinical trial. Participants took two tablets twice daily for 4 weeks, and attended a follow-up consultation at the end of weeks 2 and 4. The measurement tool used was the SPT, conducted at the beginning and at the end of the study.

RESULTS:

Cat saliva 9cH and Histaminum 9cH produced a highly statistically significant reduction in the wheal diameter of the cat allergen SPT at the end of week 4. The placebo group showed no statistically significant change.

CONCLUSION:

The homeopathic medicine reduced the sensitivity reaction of cat allergic adults to cat allergen, according to the SPT. Future studies are warranted to further investigate the effect of Cat saliva and Histaminum and their role as a potential therapeutic option for this condition.

8.2 Million Italians

In Italy there are over 5000 homeopathic physicians, 7000 pharmacies dispensing homeopathic medicines and 20 different laboratories. In a study in the early part of the last decade, 8.2 million Italians reported using homeopathy and approximately 90% of them said they were helped by the treatment.

Is evidence for homoeopathy reproducible?

Abstract

We tested, under independent conditions, the reproducibility of evidence from two previous trials that homoeopathy differs from placebo. The test model was again homoeopathic immunotherapy. 28 patients with allergic asthma, most of them sensitive to house-dust mite, were randomly allocated to receive either oral homoeopathic immunotherapy to their principal allergen or identical placebo. The test treatments were given as a complement to their unaltered conventional care. A daily visual analogue scale of overall symptom intensity was the outcome measure. A difference in visual analogue score in favour of homoeopathic immunotherapy appeared within one week of starting treatment and persisted for up to 8 weeks (p = 0.003). There were similar trends in respiratory function and bronchial reactivity tests. A meta-analysis of all three trials strengthened the evidence that homoeopathy does more than placebo (p = 0.0004). Is the reproducibility of evidence in favour of homoeopathy proof of its activity or proof of the clinical trial's capacity to produce false-positive results?

Homeopathy has a longer history integrated in hospitals than conventional medicine

History

How it all began...

The history of the Queen Elizabeth Health Complex can be traced back to 1894 when it used to be the Montreal Homeopathic Hospital. This institution which was reputed for its devoted nurses and efficient management was situated on McGill College Avenue until 1927. At that time the demand for more beds led to a public appeal for $500,000 which allowed the hospital to move to Marlowe Avenue, where the modern complex is currently located.

This hospital was the home of many firsts. For example, in 1942 curare was first used in clinical anaesthesia, and in 1943 the hospital pioneered the first post-operative recovery room in Canada. By 1951, the impressive medical and surgical advances accomplished by the hospital allowed it to acquire the new name of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital of Montreal, in honour of the wife of King George VI, Queen Elizabeth, who was soon to become the Queen Mother.

In December 1961, the completely renovated building was officially opened by the Premier of Quebec, Jean Lesage. It was “Canada’s largest little hospital”. The renovations had taken three years to complete and completely modernized the hospital facilities.

In June 1995, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) became one of the Montreal-area acute-care hospitals to be slated for closure in response to a directive from the provincial government to cut the costs of health care provision. In the following year, the QEH Board of Directors, the QEH Foundation and other bodies and individuals in the community joined forces and decided to take matters into their own hands by forming the Centre-West Community Health Corporation (CWCHC) which became incorporated in June 1996. This project allows for the continued delivery of acute care services as well as the supply of a full spectrum of services to care, share, prevent and cure.

The CWCHC became a new, not-for-profit health organization with no government funding whose purpose was to provide as many medical and health promotion services to its community as possible on the premises of the former QEH. The Queen Elizabeth Health Complex, under the management of the CWCHC, is therefore a reincarnation and a new legal form for a century-old community institution. Its mission is to provide efficient, readily accessible medical services, complementary and alternative therapy, as well as emotional and mental health services that will contribute to improving the health of our community in accordance with the policies and guidelines of the Government of Quebec.

At a time when we are actively searching for tangible and long-term solutions to our health care needs, the Queen Elizabeth Health Complex (QEHC) offers an innovative and efficient health care model, providing a diverse range of community health care services - all under one roof. Ensuring ready access to both medical and alternative health services, the QEHC is an attractive option to avoid the overcrowding, delays and other inconveniences so often experienced in hospitals and CLSCs.

Homeopathy on Dr. Oz's Show

Lisa Samet on Dr. Oz's Show
Monday, January 28, 2013

Lisa Samet, N.D., was interviewed by Dr. Oz about homeopathy in January, 2013.

With her help, Dr. Oz reveals how you can replace your over-the-counter medications with homeopathic solutions. Looking for an all-natural solution for your problems? Homeopathy might be right for you!

Addressing people, not disease,
in a wholistic way by encouraging the body to heal itself

Lisa Samet, N.D. focuses primarily on homeopathy in her Montreal practice

About Lisa Samet, N.D.
In her experience it is the deepest healing modality available in that it does not just soothe or palliate symptoms but can actually trigger the body to start to heal itself. This can seem quite miraculous when deep-seated or long-standing problems are actually eradicated as the body, with a push from the homeopathic remedy, starts to rebalance and regain its health. Most of the frustration with conventional medicine today is that although the drugs can take away many of the effects of a disease (pain, inflammation, etc), they don’t actually affect the disease process itself. This is evidenced by the fact that people usually take drugs for chronic illness indefinitely, and even after say, twenty years, if they would go off the medicines, they would likely be in the same place they started or worse off. Frankly, this can also be true in the ‘natural medicine’ world, where supplements and herbs can help the symptoms but never seem to address the chronic susceptibility to a problem. › Read more

It is not easy to master the art of homeopathy. Consulting an experienced practitioner is essential. It is more difficult to find a good homeopathic remedy than to write a prescription for prednisone or antibiotics, for example, or suggest a mixture of herbs or vitamin supplements. While some relief may be experienced from any of these therapies, deep healing will not occur in any comparable way to what is experienced with the correct homeopathic remedy.

The challenge comes in that we are addressing the individual as a whole being, not the disease. In the conventional world there is a drug protocol for the disease name that one has, but in the world of homeopathy, we find a remedy that matches the individual’s personal manifestation of the illness, not on the disease name itself. This is because we are addressing the whole person, not the disease. What this means is that two people with the same disease, for example, rheumatoid arthritis, would likely get two completely different homeopathic remedies. For even though it is the same disease name, the type of pain, the location of the pain, the factors that influence the pain, etc., will most likely be different from one person to the next and these specifics are what the homeopath uses to prescribe on, in addition to a general and thorough understanding of all aspects of the patient.

Sometimes it is challenging for the patient to accurately express what they experience. Because people are complex beings, finding the correct remedy may not always be achieved on the first attempt. The good news is, there are rarely any negative side effects with homeopathy, so it is worth being patient as the results from the correct remedy will be worth your wait.

Due to the difficulty of mastering the art of homeopathy, it is imperative to find a practitioner who is well trained as a ‘classical’ homeopath. This is someone who takes a very thorough case at the initial interview, often lasting more than two hours for an adult with a chronic illness, and then selects one remedy, not a mixture of remedies or alternating different remedies, that best matches the patient’s total symptom picture. In this way, a successful result has the highest chance of being achieved.

Lisa Samet is very experienced, as she has been studying homeopathy since 1989 and practicing since 1999. She considers herself fortunate to have been trained by some of the best in the field. She has seen terrific results in her practice even with very complex diseases.

In addition to homeopathy, Lisa Samet is passionate about helping people with optimizing their diet and learning tools to reduce stress. She will guide you on lifestyle improvements and nutrition optimization, including food sensitivity evaluation to identify hidden foods that continue to keep people sick, as well as detoxification and intermittent fasting to optimize health. Habitual patterns of negative thinking, worrying, anxiety can keep us from enjoying living. These thought patterns and fixed ways of seeing situations in our lives can keep us miserable. Emotional re-patterning work can help patients experience a profound shift, overcoming long-held stuck patterns that prevent them from living their fullest and happiest lives.

HRI-supported researcher presents PhD findings at international congress

HRI-supported researcher presents PhD findings at international congress

26 April 2018

https://www.hri-research.org/2018/04/hri-supported-researcher-presents-pilot-study-at-international-congress/

The Israeli Society for ADHD recently held an international congress in Tel Aviv, during which HRI-supported researcher Philippa Fibert presented the results of her PhD pilot feasibility study assessing the effectiveness of treatment by homeopaths and nutritional therapists for children with ADHD.

During her presentation Philippa discussed the importance of pragmatic trials to assess whether interventions might improve the long term negative outcomes associated with ADHD. The pilot study findings regarding the effectiveness of treatment by nutritional therapists and homeopaths specifically using the Trials Within Cohorts (TWiCs) methodology were also described.

 

Reflecting on her experience at the Congress, Philippa said, “When I thanked the conference organiser for the opportunity to speak, particularly given the controversial status of homeopathy, she replied ‘we are open to what works’.”
