Pro-Homeopathy Lobby Presents Prime Minister and British Parliament With Declaration Signed by 28,112 People

Weeks after the release of a negative report by a British Parliamentary Committee on homeopathy hundreds showed up to lobby the British Parliament. The politicians on the parliamentary committee had difficulty comprehending the principles of homeopathy, showed serious prejudicial behaviour and one politician known to be in support of drug companies ridiculed scientists presenting evidence in support of homeopathy. The subsequent report gave free reign to conventional Pharmaceutical Company Representatives’ evidence.

A few days ago, a pro homeopathy rally outside the British Parliament saw hundreds show up to support homeopathy. They presented a declaration in support of homeopathy to the Prime Minister that had been signed by 28,112 people!

They included patients and homeopaths from as far afield as Scotland, Worcestershire, Norfolk and Devon, and representing the worldwide spread of homeopathy, including the U.S.A., Japan, India and Ghana as well as Britain. The age range was enormous too, with a baby not yet one year old, who has never had any treatment but homeopathy, right up to a 96-year-old, who has also never had any treatment but homeopathy. Even animals were represented by Frankie, a dog who has been treated homeopathically for a T-cell lymphoma.

The group led by the organization H:MC21.org hand delivered a letter to the Prime Minister . Here is some of the text from the letter by the non profit organization, also known as  Homeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century.

We urge the government

To reject the report of the Commons Science and Technology Committee on the grounds that it is profoundly flawed and shows strong evidence of prejudice.
To provide a substantial re-directing of  NHS research funding, so that the use of homeopathy in the NHS can be properly assessed as regards both its clinical and cost effectiveness.
To instruct Primary Care Trusts that homeopathy forms part of the NHS provision of healthcare, and that it should not be a victim of cuts simply because decision-makers are not qualified to judge its principles and practice.
We ask your government to recognise that this declaration is the voice of nearly 28,000 people who represent some 10% of the electorate. It is a call to the government to listen not to those who have abused their access to the media, but to those who have experience of successful treatment with homeopathy, those who proudly declare: Homeopathy Works for Me!
Homeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century is based in the UK and exists to campaign for homeopathy and to provide access to information and research for homeopaths, patients and others interested in supporting diversity in medical approaches. The declaration had been signed by 28,112 people and supported by 32 organizations.

Public Health Expert Praises Homeopathy

Dana Ullman, who has a Masters of Public Health is positively behind homeopathic medicine and gives both scientific evidence and philosophical reasons for the public to support and choose homeopathy.

After examining current clinical research of homeopathy, Dana Ullman has referenced over 200 successful controlled clinical trials of homeopathy in an e-book he has published.

As a supporter of homeopathy, he has brought it into the 21st century. He has also written a book called the “The Homeopathic Revolution” describing how famous people have chosen homeopathy and also many articles and books about the scientific underpinnings of homeopathy. On the web site, Homeopathic Educational Services or Homeopathic.com you can get many articles including introductory ones on homeopathy.


In one chapter of the Homeopathic Revolution,  Dana Ullman describes how Charles Darwin survived a serious illness with homeopathy but also talks about many famous individuals, including medical doctors, who have used homeopathy.

One of the most amazing stories came from the life of Charles Darwin. Because so many of Darwin’s personal letters have been maintained and are now available online, there is a veritable treasure-trove of information about his life, illnesses, and his medical treatment. What will be described here is a part of his story, with much greater detail provided in The Homeopathic Revolution .

Darwin’s story is but one story in the chapter on “Physicians and Scientists: Coming out of the Medicine Closet.” Some of the others included in this chapter are: Sir William Osler (the “father of modern medicine”), Emil Adolf von Behring (the “father of immunology”), Sidney Ringer, Charles Frederick Menninger (founder of the Menninger Clinic), August Bier (the “father of spinal anesthesia”), Royal S. Copeland (homeopathic physician and New York Senator), William J. Mayo and Charles H. Mayo (founders of the Mayo Clinic), C. Everett Koop (former Surgeon General, U.S.), and Brian Josephson (modern-day Nobel laureate and Cambridge professor).

During Darwin’s trip to South America in the mid-1830s, he became very ill. Although different historians and physicians have hypothesized on what ailment he had, there is no consensus, except to say that he was seriously ill. Ever since 1837, he suffered from persistent nausea and vomiting, heart palpitations, widespread boils, and trembling, and since 1847, he had fainting spells and spots before his eyes…and his symptoms were getting increasingly worse.

Although Charles Darwin was only 39 years old in November, 1848, he was so ill that he couldn’t attend his own father’s funeral. In March, 1849, Darwin himself acknowledged that he was unable to work one day in every three, and further, he felt that he was dying. He said this specifically,

“I was not able to do anything one day out of three, & was altogether too dispirited to write to you or to do anything but what I was compelled.­ I thought I was rapidly going the way of all flesh.”

When you consider that Charles Darwin was this sick in 1849 and that he published his seminal book, The Origin of Species, 10 years later in 1859, one cannot help but wonder if he would have even survived that long or if he would have been as productive as a scientist or as an author if he didn’t see Dr. James Manby Gully in March, 1849.

On the advice from one of his cousins as well as from a fellow shipmate from the Beagle, Charles Darwin brought himself and his family to the clinic and “water-cure” spa of Dr. James Manby Gully, a well-known and respected homeopathic physician and advocate of hydrotherapy (“water-cure”).  For more details about this story, click HERE.

Homeopathy Teacher Series- Jeremy Sherr

This is part of series on Homeopathy Teachers by Homeopathy Resource.

Jeremy Sherr is an excellent teacher of homeopathy. He has re-introduced old and new methods of doing accurate homeopathic provings and has written a popular book about it and also teaches it.

From his Web site:

“Jeremy was born in South Africa and grew up in Israel. He began his studies at the College of Homœopathy, London, in 1980 and completed a degree simultaneously in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Though he practices classical homœopathy exclusively, his knowledge of Chinese Medicine shines through his homœopathic thinking.

Jeremy was the first to re-develop the science and art of provings after a century of near silence. In 1982 he conducted his first proving of Scorpion, and has since completed 23 Hahnemannian provings, including Hydrogen, Chocolate, Diamond, Salmon and Germanium. These remedies are now well established in our repertories and materia medicas, and are being used successfully all over the world. Jeremy’s work “The Dynamics and Methodology of Homœopathic Provings” has become the accepted guideline for provings, and has been translated into French, German, Italian and Russian. His latest book, “Dynamic Materia Medica – Syphilis” is an innovative presentation of his unique ideas on philosophy and materia medica that has received excellent reviews worldwide.

Jeremy began teaching while still in college. He taught in most British schools, and began the Dynamis School in 1985. His school is the longest running post-graduate course in the UK. He has taught the Dynamis curriculum throughout Europe and North America, and has lectured in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India and China. He maintains a busy practice in Malvern, New York and Tel Aviv.

Jeremy is acknowledged by the homœopathic community as a brilliant and creative thinker who is well grounded in the philosophy and writings of Hahnemann. His lectures are an inspiring blend of classical homœopathy and original thought, delivered with vitality and humour. His practical teachings are live cases with long-term follow up. As a homœopathic practitioner, Jeremy is known for his unprejudiced clarity and profound insight.

He was awarded a fellowship from the Society of Homeopaths in 1991 and a Ph.D. from Medicina Alternativa. He is a Member of the North American Society of Homeopaths, and is an honorary professor of Yunan Medical College, Kunming, China.”

Much to the chagrin and opposition by Drug Company representatives and supporters who have a  strong African market, Jeremy Sherr has initiated an AIDS project:

He states:

Our project has several objectives; 1) To treat as many AIDS patients as possible, so as to relieve suffering 2) To develop a homoeopathic understanding of the disease. This understanding should enable us to list the homeopathic remedies which are most successful in treating AIDS. 3) To make our project sustainable by spreading this knowledge and the related remedies throughout Tanzania and Africa, so that local health practitioners will be able to prescribe these remedies to large masses of people. 4) To produce formal research on the treatment of AIDS with homoeopathy so as to show the world what it is able to achieve.

Together with Sigsbert Rwegasira, a Tanzanian homoeopath, and other international homoeopaths, Jeremy will initially create a clinical and teaching infrastructure in Tanzania. Once this is established, more homeopaths will come to Tanzania to participate in the project. When this mechanism is fully operational, we aim to open homoeopathic schools in Tanzania and throughout the whole of Africa, training doctors, homeopathic professionals, nurses and local practitioners.

We have the support of several eminent homeopathic researchers, as well as the Muhumbili University of Health Sciences in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and the Department of Integrative Medicine at the University of Maryland, USA.
