Homeopathy is Safe and The Lancet Medical Journal Promotes Dangerous Placebo Surgical Procedures

The Lancet, a medical journal here in the UK, has published a study concerning heart stents. Half the participants received a surgical procedure with a stent installed but then half got a “placebo” surgical procedure and in the end, did not get the heart stent put in. The results showed that both those with a stent and those without continued to experience angina heart pain after the procedure.

The study is problematic on two counts. First, tens of thousands of patients have procedures where stents are put in with the idea that it will reduce heart pain and now it is found that putting in a stent is all but useless for that.

Second, ethically, The Lancet gave approval to this study where there were serious complications from a “placebo” surgery, but surgery none the less.  As the study said: “Serious adverse events included four pressure-wire related complications in the placebo group, which required PCI, and five major bleeding events, including two in the PCI group and three in the placebo group.”

In contradistinction, Homeopathy has an over 200 year record of safety and efficacy. And the pharmaceutical, medical industry represented by The Lancet is in a fight against safe and effective homeopathy. The Lancet published a poorly cobbled together study on homeopathy, knowing the author was biased against homeopathy and the study poorly done. Experts have called the study a sham but Lancet continues its fight against safe homeopathy and supports dangerous procedures to show that double blind studies are the only arbiter of efficacy.

With Homeopathy having very positive clinical results, popularity and an increase in its market share in emerging economies the medical industry had a great fear. As a result, the conventional pharmaceutical industry started a subterfuge campaign against homeopathy stating it was unscientific and therefore more dangerous than conventional medical drugs and procedures. This was without any real substantiation. They would have you believe that it is more dangerous to take a homeopathic remedy than to get surgery. And obviously it has come to the place where the standard of care for The Lancet medical journal is surgery over safe alternatives, even sham surgery that injures.

Hard Hitting Documentary on Homeopathy About to Be Released

A documentary called “Magic Pills”, showing how homeopathy is practised world wide and the multitude of successful scientific research studies is about to be released. It also shows how much of this positive research on homeopathy has been suppressed.

Here is a quote from the web site for Homeopathy and The Magic Pills Movie:

Our current medical system is broken. It focuses on profits and disease, rather than people and wellness. It has few answers for chronic illness, and many of the treatments have side effects that can be worse than the original illness they’re meant to treat.

Homeopathy could be one of the more affordable and effective forms of medicine available. It’s been used to treat everything from Cancer to AIDS and even to prevent disease with very compelling results. There is an increasing body of evidence in the scientific literature to support the 200 years of clinical homeopathic experience, but this evidence is concealed and falsely ridiculed by a system afraid of alternatives.

There is Now Proof Australian Research Council Rigged Their Study of Homeopathy’s Effectiveness

At the end of the new documentary on homeopathy “Just One Drop,” there is a section on the 2015 study about the scientific validity of homeopathy done by The Australian National Health and Medical Research Council. The Research Council published a negative conclusion that got world wide press.

As reported in the documentary, a subsequent investigation done by an Australian individual and other Australian homeopathy groups showed that the Council’s researchers involved in this study were terribly biased and even lied about their impartiality. The initial chair of the study was a leading outspoken skeptic of homeopathy.

At first, an impartial company with a group of researchers were fired by the Council when they presented a report that concluded that homeopathy was effective. Then the subsequent research group, under the Council’s direct guidance, created criteria for evaluating studies of homeopathy that were never used before in the evaluation of other scientific studies. This unprecedented procedure effectively blocked all studies of homeopathy that had a positive result. In response, one of the researchers interviewed on camera belligerently justified these actions by claiming ‘it was homeopathy!’ they were evaluating.

There are many dramatically positive scientific studies validating homeopathy’s effectiveness and none of these were included in their report. Many are described on this web site.

Even though there have been many complaints to the Research Council, after 2 years, there is still no substantial results of their supposed review of the lack of integrity and dishonesty by their own researchers. For more detailed information see the documentary Just One Drop.

New Film on Homeopathy Released

A new film on homeopathy has been released by Laurel Chiten (Blind Dog FIlms) who is the Producer and Director. “Just One Drop” explores the people who have been dramatically helped by homeopathy as well as the history and controversy of homeopathy.

 

Pharmaceutical Industry Funding of Anti-homeopathy Skeptic Groups Uncovered

Sense about Science, a well funded anti-homeopathy skeptic organization in the United Kingdom, complained about a consumer’s group’s assertion that they represent and are funded by the pharmaceutical industry.  After further investigation, even more funding than previously revealed was uncovered.

A spokesperson for the consumer group investigating Sense about Science said, “In investigating their complaints we looked more closely at the sources of funding of Sense About Science, and have found that our original figures for the charity’s support by the pharmaceutical industry were too conservative.”

The consumer group, H:MC21 also wrote in response to Sense about Science complaining:

You quote us as saying that Sense About Science “received over 35% of its donation funding from the pharmaceutical industry between 2004 and 2009”, but then refer only to funding “from pharmaceutical companies”. As a result of the investigation following your email, we have found that our original claim about Sense About Science’s funding was too conservative. In fact Sense About Science appears to have received an average of 42.3% of its total income between 2004 and 2010 from pharmaceutical companies or organisations clearly linked to the pharmaceutical industry. In 2006, the year [the anti-homeopathy] ‘Sense About Homeopathy’ was published, there was a huge leap in such funding, from £37,300 (36.9% of total income) to £102,165 (51.2% of total income). Full details are included in Appendix 1.

The Canadian and USA skeptic organization called Centre for Inquiry, which is another anti-homeopathy skeptic group, is almost entirely funded by a director of a pharmaceutical company. They have initiated a law suit against a homeopathic manufacturer and retail pharmacy selling homeopathic remedies.

Both groups are attempting to stop consumers’ choice of alternative health modalities and stop the sale of homeopathic remedies.

New Research From Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart Scientifically Proves Water Memory and Homeopathy

A simple experiment by researchers and professors at the prestigious Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart in Germany is confirming Dr. Jacques Benveniste’s 1988 assertion that water has an imprint of energies to which it has been exposed. In spite of Jacques Benveniste’s experiment to show that homeopathy works being replicated many many times at various research labs and universities around the world, skeptics have continued to attempt to debunk it albeit unsuccessfully.

This new experiment and support from professors here offer another intriguing view and explanation of how homeopathy works since it proves water has a “memory”.

The Oasis HD Channel in Canada describes the fascinating results of this new experiment-

Prince Charles Congratulates Homeopathy School’s Success

The School of Homeopathy in England held an historic event in Stroud to celebrate their 30th Anniversary. Many of the world’s leading homeopaths came to show support and give presentations and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales sent his warmest congratulations:

“I did just want to send my warmest possible congratulations in celebration of the Stroud School of Homeopathy’s 30th Anniversary. It seems to me this most noteworthy of events takes on an even greater resonance, coming as it does at a time when, sadly, we have been witnessing the relative decline of some homeopathic services in different parts of the United Kingdom.

It makes the achievements of the School even more significant – from being one of the first in this country to offer an on-site, four year programme, to developing an extensive clinical supervision process and, in addition, creating a home-study programme which reaches students in over sixty countries.

It seems remarkable all this has happened in spite of the apparently ceaseless attacks on homeopathy, and on the individuals attempting to build credibility around its patient outcomes, and I can only wish you every possible success in the years to come.”

Mani Norland, the School of Homeopathy’s Principal says, “This incredible event was our way of celebrating the School’s achievement of 30 years at the forefront of UK homeopathic education. This is one of the largest most exciting events ever held in homeopathy. Never before have so many influential homeopaths come together to present at one free online event – it is truly world class! We are honoured and proud to be given the added endorsement from His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. We feel it was a great gift to give the profession and a fitting way to mark the year for us.”

The School (which is the longest running in the UK) was founded in 1981 and quickly developed to be one of the first to offer an on-site four year programme. It has worked closely with the Society of Homeopaths during a long development towards an accreditation process.
