Summary of Cuban Experiences on Leptospirosis Prevention From the Authors

Here is the preliminary report by the authors of a Cuban Study that used homeopathy to prevent Leptospirosis in 2.5 million Cubans.

Homeoprophylaxis: Cuban Experiences on Leptospirosis

“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 below 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”.

  1. Brilliant. And Medical Doctors in Cuba are well trained, (although poorly paid). Looks like MANY have signed onto the study. I await the full paper.

    Interesting, critics of homeopathy always ask for proof and here it is. Their response is to either nostalgically and falsely state that the Soviet Union did a better job when SO many still died from the disease or simply lie about these excellent results to diminish the magnitude of this study. Or they speculate that they can disprove the results, even though, unlike the authors they have no medical training and are not privy to any statistics.

    This preliminary paper already puts a big hole in their consistently prejudiced position against homeopathy. Lets hope that some of them have some integrity and say- “well, with this result maybe I have to rethink my position”.

    Keep up the good work on this web site.

  3. This is an incredible study. It is a great advance for all of medicine.

  4. Excellent results!

  5. Hello
    With the greatest triumphant feeelings I read from this tremendous success for homoeopathy.
    I am homoepath in Germany and member of SURYA (founded by Dr. Ravi Roy), a non-profit organisation working for the spreading of homoeopathic prophylaxis and homoeopathy.
    Here in South Germany we do have a problem with Borreliosis. I want to show people in germany how successful homoeopathy is working in thiks filed. So I need movies that show your work in Cuba. I would like to present these in one cinema that is also fighting for women `s rights.

    Send me your answer. It is urgent.

    best regards

  6. Send me all further deveolpments after the prophylaxis.

  7. willyou please the names of the flower remedies used along with the nosode

  8. […] recently commisioned a study in Cuba with homeopathy to look at its effects on leptospirosis.  The full paper is still being awaited but it appears that 2.5 million people were given homeopathy in place of the […]

  9. I have been using homeopathy for over twenty years now with great success, i have a friend who is suffering leptospirosis and cannot take antibiotics. Where do we obtain here in Australia the remedy for this infection thanks lana

  11. I was there! As a privileged witness, in 2007 and in 2008, when the homeoprophylaxis was applied to 8 million Cubans with the same success! (3 big tropical storms in November). Since then, leptospirosis appears in less than one case in 100 000 on the island. Before, and for as many years as stats were available, the numbers were 5 in 100 000 during the normal months, and over 30 in 100 000 at flooding conditions months.

  12. […] Een voorbeeld van de inzet van homeopatische ‘vaccinatie’ is de inzet die men in Cuba heeft gedaan. Daar breekt jaarlijks na de overstromingen het leptospirosis uit. Men diende in het gebied echter alle bewoners (2,5 miljoen mensen) oraal het homeopatische leptospirosis nosode toe. (een nosode is een op homeopatische wijze gemaakt middel waarbij de ziekteverwekkende bacterie zelf wordt gebruikt als grondstof, gelijk aan de allopatische vaccinantie. Maar deze is veel minder duur en hoeft niet ingespoten te worden). Daarop volgend kwam het regenseizoen en de verwachte uitbraak bleef uit. Dat dit in Cuba wel kan en elders niet ligt volgens Dr. Gustavo Bracho aan het simpele feit “Dat wij ons niets aantrekken van de farmaceutische industrie.”… […]
