Shocked Canadian Homeopaths and Homeopathy Supporters Ask, “Is the CBC Marketplace Show Infiltrated by Pharmaceutical Company Sponsored Skeptics?”

Canadian homeopaths and homeopathic professional organizations are reeling from a one sided and unfair piece on homeopathy by the CBC television network. Not only that, they are questioning the unscrupulous methodology of producers of the show.

As the sales of homeopathic and aruvedic remedies increase faster than pharmaceutical drugs in strong economies like Brazil and India, conventional pharmaceutical companies have created and funded skeptic organizations like “Sense about Science” in western countries to discredit them. There are over hundreds of thousands of registered homeopaths in India with 13,000 new ones registering each year and tens of thousands in Brazil.

Now a number of organizations directly funded by pharmaceutical companies have developed aggressive and hostile tactics to fight homeopathy and discredit its practitioners. Infiltrating conventional media sources is one method just as the head of one of the largest pharmaceutically sponsored skeptic organizations “Sense about Science” is a former public relations consultant for pharmaceutical companies.

In Canada, homeopathic practitioners are now being regulated in the province of Ontario by an act of provincial parliament. They are also being targeted by skeptic organizations. Producers at CBC Marketplace decided to do a show on it and took the skeptical premise that homeopathy was simply belief and unscientific, questioning the regulation and even what is in a homeopathic remedy.

Experienced Canadian homeopaths are complaining that these producers at this Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television show comprimised journalistic integrity by taking such a strong one sided point of view right from the beginning and to the very end.

There were some blatant untruths in the show particularly around the show stating that they tried to get comments from various organizations.  As word of the show spread to the homeopathic community some organizations and homeopathic supporters actually contacted the producers and continued to discuss the show with them. The producers did not wish to have any experienced homeopaths on the show, (not asking the most experienced Canadian practitioners at all) but rather sought new and poorly trained homeopaths to be able to highlight their negative premise and create an aura of flakiness and danger. The actual registrar of homeopaths in Ontario, an experienced and sensible homeopath  was not asked to be interviewed.

Pro-homeopathy scientists, experienced practitioners and other journalists were frustrated in their attempt to give the producers positive information and emphasize its safety. The producers even ignored the body of scientific information and papers that demonstrate and scientifically prove homeopathic remedies are more than “sugar and water” or placebo. They sought opinions and gave final say from individuals who were well known skeptics and know little if nothing about homeopathy.

In a recent interview with noble prize winning Dr. Luc Montagnier he actually gives homeopathy some credit within his body of work yet the show decided to take a quote from him from many years ago.

Homeopathy is a 200-year-old system of medicine used successfully by tens of millions daily worldwide, and the second most utilized complementary health discipline in the world.  It has a laudable 200-year clinical record.  There are literally hundreds of high quality basic science, pre-clinical and clinical studies showing it works.


Anderson Cancer Center Study: Homeopathy Shows Great Promise In Treatment of Brain Cancer

An older study at the Anderson Cancer Center showed that the homeopathic remedy Ruta caused cancer cell death. This University of Texas centre has also recently published a study showing homeopathy’s use in the treatment of cancer.

Not only that, six of seven patients with glioma who participated in the study  showed complete regression of tumors!

Here is the abstract of the study:

Although conventional chemotherapies are used to treat patients with malignancies, damage to normal cells is problematic. Blood-forming bone marrow cells are the most adversely affected. It is therefore necessary to find alternative agents that can kill cancer cells but have minimal effects on normal cells. We investigated the brain cancer cell-killing activity of a homeopathic medicine, Ruta, isolated from a plant, Ruta graveolens. We treated human brain cancer and HL-60 leukemia cells, normal B-lymphoid cells, and murine melanoma cells in vitro with different concentrations of Ruta in combination with Ca3(PO4)2. Fifteen patients diagnosed with intracranial tumors were treated with Ruta 6 and Ca3(PO4)2. Of these 15 patients, 6 of the 7 glioma patients showed complete regression of tumors. Normal human blood lymphocytes, B-lymphoid cells, and brain cancer cells treated with Ruta in vitro were examined for telomere dynamics, mitotic catastrophe, and apoptosis to understand the possible mechanism of cell-killing, using conventional and molecular cytogenetic techniques. Both in vivo and in vitro results showed induction of survival-signaling pathways in normal lymphocytes and induction of death-signaling pathways in brain cancer cells. Cancer cell death was initiated by telomere erosion and completed through mitotic catastrophe events. We propose that Ruta in combination with Ca3(PO4)2 could be used for effective treatment of brain cancers, particularly glioma.

Amazing Cures of Autism With Homeopathy

Autism, part of a group of disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD), is a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person’s lifetime. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects as many as 1 in every 110 children in the United States. Therefore, it is estimated that 1.5 million Americans may be affected with autism. Also, government statistics suggest the rate of autism is rising 10-17 percent annually. The parents in the video below relate their son’s autism to vaccination. But this is an excellent video describing how homeopathy made a lasting change in their son’s problem- its worth watching.

Amy Lanksy’s book An Impossible Cure is featured in this video. She too had a son with autism. She relates the successful homeopathic treatment of her son who had autism to homeopathy and wrote a book about her experience as well as others’ experiences.

At the core of Impossible Cure is the amazing story of how the author’s son was cured of autism with homeopathy. It also includes dozens of other testimonials of homeopathic cures for a variety of physical, mental, and emotional conditions.

Amy Lanksy PhD was a computer scientist leading research projects for NASA and her husband was a researcher for Apple Computer. As she says, she “was an avid devotee of modern medicine” but subsequent to her son’s “impossible cure” from autism she studied homeopathy and became a homeopathic pracititioner herself.

Good homeopathy for chronic problems requires individual case taking and prescribing. The results vary from person to person but they can be very satisfying as seen in this video. The parents in this film are not Amy Lanksy and her husband but were prompted to seek homeopathic care after reading Amy’s book.

Avatar The Movie Star’s Allergies Cured with Homeopathy

Avatar Star  Michelle Rodriquez on the December 23rd Jay Leno show said that after making the movie Lost, she developed terrible allergies. She went on to say she saw an allergist who treated her with homeopathic remedies and her allergies were gone.

It is interesting how Avatar has so much about energy healing and intuitive indigenous healing methods. Its beauty is not only in its stunning visuals but also lies in how the scientists in the end, understand and are part of saving the special culture of the inhabitants of Pandora and their energetic healing.

Homeopathy Cancer Centre Makes Research Breakthrough Showing Homeopathy Affects Cancer Cells

 

Dana Ullman reports that a new study done at the Amala Cancer Research Centre in India and published in the Oxford University Press journal called e-CAM  shows that homeopathy has a dramatic impact on gene expression and various cancer cells in a long term way.

 

Dana Ullman, who has a  Masters of Public Health writes, “Of special interest is the fact that this study has repeated shown that homeopathically potentized doses have dramatic effects on various kinds of cancer cells, not just in the short-term but the long-term. This research also shows that various homeopathic medicines have dramatic effects on gene expression (this is the type of evidence that conventional drug companies LOVE to see for their drugs…and there is increasing evidence that homeopathic medicines have this profound effect).”

 

ABSTRACT:
Although reports on the efficacy of homeopathic medicines in animal models are limited, there are even fewer reports on the in vitro action of these dynamized preparations. We have evaluated the cytotoxic activity of 30C and 200C potencies of ten dynamized medicines against Dalton’s Lymphoma Ascites, Ehrlich’s Ascites Carcinoma, lung fibroblast (L929) and Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell lines and compared activity with their mother tinctures during short-term and long-term cell culture. The effect of dynamized medicines to induce apoptosis was also evaluated and we studied how dynamized medicines affected genes expressed during apoptosis. Mother tinctures as well as some dynamized medicines showed significant cytotoxicity to cells during short and long-term incubation. Potentiated alcohol control did not produce any cytotoxicity at concentrations studied. The dynamized medicines were found to inhibit CHO cell colony formation and thymidine uptake in L929 cells and those of Thuja, Hydrastis and Carcinosinum were found to induce apoptosis in DLA cells. Moreover, dynamized Carcinosinum was found to induce the expression of p53 while dynamized Thuja produced characteristic laddering pattern in agarose gel electrophoresis of DNA. These results indicate that dynamized medicines possess cytotoxic as well as apoptosis-inducing properties.

Study Shows Homeopathy Successfully Treating Psoriasis

Updated April 13, 2009

A study of 82 patients suffering psoriasis treated with homeopathy in primary care over a period of two years shows significant improvement in their quality of life and reduction in their psoriasis symptoms. Many of the patients had suffered psoriasis for as long as 15 years and had previously unsuccessfully tried conventional treatments. The full paper of the study is published in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, a conventional medical Journal.

Abstract…

Objective To evaluate details and effects of homeopathic treatment in patients with psoriasis in usual medical care.

Methods Primary care patients were evaluated over 2 years using standardized questionnaires, recording diagnoses and complaints severity, health-related quality of life (QoL), medical history, consultations, all treatments, and use of other health services.

Results Forty-five physicians treated 82 adults, 51.2% women, aged 41.6 ± 12.2 (mean ± SD) years. Patients had psoriasis for 14.7 ± 11.9 years; 96.3% had been treated before. Initial case taking took 127 ± 47 min. The 7.4 ± 7.4 subsequent consultations (duration: 19.4 ± 10.5 min) cumulated to 169.0 ± 138.8 min. Patients received 6.0 ± 4.9 homeopathic prescriptions. Diagnoses and complaints severity improved markedly with large effect sizes (Cohen’s d= 1.02–2.09). In addition, QoL improved (SF-36 physical component score d = 0.26, mental component score d = 0.49), while conventional treatment and health service use were considerably reduced.

Conclusions: Under classical* homeopathic treatment, patients with psoriasis improved in symptoms and QoL.

Homeopaths have successfully treated psoriasis with no side effects. For over 200  years homeopaths have demonstrated strategies for treating and dealing with it. Hahnemann the original founder of homeopathy, even discussed this disease as a consequence of  various genetic influences. Recent studies showing homeopathy’s safety and efficacy comes on the heels of the United States Food and Drug Administration warning that taking the psoriasis drug Raptiva could result in serious brain infections and even death.

The Food and Drug Administration cited three confirmed cases, and a possible fourth, of people diagnosed with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) after being treated with Raptiva.

“Three of those patients have died,” the FDA said in a public health advisory. “All four patients were treated with the drug for more than three years.”

None was receiving other treatments that suppress the immune system.

Raptiva’s product labeling was revised in October to highlight a boxed warning about the risks of life-threatening infections, including PML.

“At that time, the FDA directed Genentech, the manufacturer, to develop a risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS) to include a medication guide to educate patients about the drug’s risks,” the FDA’s advisory says.

In the advisory, issued Thursday, the FDA highlighted the confirmed cases and promised to “take appropriate steps” to ensure that Raptiva’s risks do not outweigh its benefits.

The FDA also said it will ensure that patients “are clearly informed of the signs and symptoms of PML” and that health care professionals “carefully monitor patients for the possible development of PML.”

Interestingly,  the drug has not been discontinued- just a warning to doctors to watch out if they find their patients start developing this serious life threatening condition as a result of taking the drug.

With a general study showing that homeopathy is safe and for the millions daily who use it, homeopathy is a logical choice for individuals suffering with such a challenging condition as psoriasis.
